Best of all airlines.

Southwest Airlines are one of the best airlines in US that provides all you need, such as flexibility in dates of traveling including flexibility in timings too like morning till evening. The airline got maximum destinations to travel almost all over the states with easy and speedy access to book a flight through their mobile app and ofcourse on website as well. It took me less than 5 mins to book a flight from Boston to Houston. I have been traveling with Southwest for quite a while.
The one best incentive to travel with Southwest Airline is the checked baggage policy that no other airline can compete with. Other airlines can’t even come closer to this deal. Two checked baggage for 50 lbs each is an offer that only an international flight with far destinations would render for free. But Southwest would give you this offer for domestic traveling for free and for the same I will appreciate the airline.
The Low Fare Calendar is another super tool to travel suiting your own budget that helps a lot people to have the privilege to take a flight of their own choice.
Thanks to the Southwest Airline for providing services all over the airports around the whole nation, traveling with our luggage for free needless to mention with the date and exact time of travel I want.

5 stars with one caveat 🤔

Been flying back between Baltimore and Tampa using southwest for many years now. This app makes purchasing tickets, checking in & accessing your boarding pass as easy as 123. Very efficient.
However, wouldn’t it be nice if you could use the app to assist you with locating a lost item during your trip. As it pertains to the airline or the airport. As a back-up for complete failure via customer service phone call attempts. During my most recent trip I left my winter coat w/ my cell phone in the pocket at the southwest gate B3 in the BWI airport sitting on a chair right by gate line up. Reported it to both BWI lost & found as well as southwest customer service. Let’s just say: clueless, ineffective, disorganized, inaccessible & passing the buck would best describe my experience thus far with both the system in place for resolving this scenario or speaking to someone about it. I can’t blame the app here, the captain flying or the crew on board who consistently succeed at their job. However, I’m not happy with southwest & BWI’s teamwork in leaving me out in the cold (pun intended) on my way back up north tomorrow with a winter coat after a week of trying to just get a valid & directed response. There’s gotta be a better way! Why not incorporate the app.

Peace of Mind

Love this app and Southwest. I try to only fly Southwest when flying home. It’s a direct flight and the app makes booking, checking in and obtaining the boarding pass efficient and convenient.
I appreciated it even more when my mother was ill and I flew home for the battery of tests needed for her. I booked a last minute flight for Christmas Eve. Most flights were atrociously expensive but my Southwest flight was $75!!! I couldn’t book it fast enough. My mother was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer so my return flight was pushed back. I easily changed flights through the app within crazy fees. This occurred a few times as my mother quickly succumbed to the disease and I had to postpone my return flight again.
I cannot express how unbelievably thankful I am that during such a fluid, emotional and challenging time that my travel was so easily changed through the app at any time - and that I did NOT incur RIDICULOUS fees (my friend recently paid $250 to change flights to a less expensive flight through another airline???) that would’ve compounded my anguish at such a time.
I already loved Southwest but I’m this day and age, I appreciate them even more.
