What's New in Version 3.9.7
With this update, you can now add EarlyBird Check-In while booking your flight. Simply select "Add EarlyBird Check-In" and check out as usual. We've also made bug fixes and general enhancements.
Doesn't show boarding passes for multiple passengers
I used to be able to easily check in and view boarding passes for all passengers booked with my account for a single trip (myself, spouse, kids).
If I search each confirmation number individually (tedious), I can check in for multiple passengers, but it won't save all the boarding passes in one location. I had to save each boarding pass for each leg of the trip separately into my wallet.
The old version was much easier: I used to be able to check in for all my family members and quickly view all boarding passes with one swipe or two.
Please fix this Southwest!
This app has potential, but lacks the finish to be considered professional. Future flights often fail to show up, and there is no way to add them. Once you pull up the flight using the conf # you should be able to then track it, but there is no option for that. Under "manage" might be a good spot for that option. While your in there, "airport info" should take me to relevant info about the airports associated with my specific flight, not a generic list of all airports. Step it up, SW. These are easy fixes.
Does what is supposed to do except
Does what is supposed to do except I get no notifications when I travel. When going into iOS setting under notifications, the app does not even show up to set my preferences as all other apps do. I tried everything from a troubleshooting standpoint and Apple support wasn't able to help. Will have to contact the app developer for resolution.
