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.

I Love Southwest!

I totally appreciate the LOVE! Every time I fly this airline I walk into an atmosphere where the employees have the freedom to be funny, to bring more of themselves into their jobs (on my last flight between Philly and Denver the flight attendant sang- she was awesome!), and where they seem to genuinely enjoy coming to work and also working together as a team. That happiness is contagious and only makes me want to add my own energy to it. (“What the world needs now is love, sweet love...”) I fly often, and as often as possible with Southwest. Pulling up to the airport, my own smile begins as I get out of the car and head to curb side checking; I know that from this first moment of my “Fly Southwest” experience, I will encounter energized, proactive, and friendly people who do a great job. And I know that the experience will simply continue through the moment I touch down at my final destination. I also TOTALLY appreciate the lack of baggage fees and the no-hassle trip change policies. Such a relief, and such an example of a better way to work with and treat people. We are all one human family and life is hard enough. Southwest makes it better!
