Your formula is correct in terms of taking the base fare, without taxes and converting it to points. Using that formula, 74, 76 or 78 points per dollar is how you get from base fare to points fare....

While it won't chase away *ALL* of AA's customers to WN, it certainly has to chase away a percentage of them. They serve some non-Southwest cities, including international.
