App Reviews

  • Peace of Mind

    By NOLAgirlinSFL
    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!

    By Marcy B who loves 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!
  • Subpar service

    By eeertttuuui
    Over a months ago I booked a flight. The flight changed and I was booked 2 days earlier and was suppose to receive a credit of 100. The day came for my flight and as I was checking in I received a text that my flight from Dallas was cancelled . I knew this before the sw rep! They tried to book me on a different flight but said it was leaving the gate in 20 minutes, I still had to go to security, I asked if they could hold it for 15 minutes because of their cancellation. They said no! Instead I was booked on a flight form San Antonio to salt lake via Sacramento, adding 5 hours to my flight and causing me to miss my ground transportation and hotel reservation. I was on the phone to sw while waiting for this new flight, they still haven’t credited me my 100 dollars or the 15 dollar early bird check in. Called today was directed to Dallas customer relations. I have spent over an hour and half holding with no response- writing this review as I hold! They tell me thru the automated system I can send an email. However, there is no contact on the app for customer service email nor can the normal techs “connect” me to Dallas customer relations! What? Sw has really fallen off and there is no way it will be a good international airlines at this rate. Imagine getting to Mexico and needing help!
  • Horrible experience

    By Jaidennnnnn
    The customer service was very rude. I have been on a plane over 10 times and Ive always had great friendly/funny Pilots, flight attendants, anybody working on the plane that Ive encountered customer service with. And to me thats one of the most important things. They were EXTREMELY rude while I started to feel sick on the plane which has never happened to me before I always have great flights with no problems, but usually I fly through Delta. I will NEVER fly with Southwest again because of how rude the workers were to not even just me. They were also super slow on getting our drinks out and no snacks were offered, which I thought all airlines offered snacks. And when I was using the bathroom I had forgotten to lock the door, one of the ladys working knocks and then OPENS the door to tell me I need to lock it. Luckily I wasn’t in the middle of going to the bathroom I was just about to wash my hands...I didnt notice if maybe the door was slightly open and she saw that I wasnt going to the bathroom so she opened it..but either way I thought it was rude of her to just open the bathroom door knowing I was in there. I didnt happen to catch the girls name that I had bad experiences with but she had short blonde hair, slightly bigger.
  • Disappointed

    By The katzmeow
    I have had fairly good luck w/ this app, however this review will highlight the reason NOT to pay for the Earlybird Check-in (36 hours before the 24 hours check-in). It cost $15 and you would think that you get a preferred boarding position in line. I was unable to do this on the app, even though it has a place to put your information and credit card data in, but no place to submit after all of your personal information has been entered. I finally called the Southwest rep and she completed the transaction via her terminal, (well within the 36 hours requested) however, she was unable to tell me my boarding letter and number. I would need to check-in during the regular 24-hour booking. When I received my booking I was shocked to find I was a B-13 and a friend who was traveling with me and chose not to pay, was a B-2.!! I called the SW rep and was given a feeble reason “that they just log in and give you a boarding number that is available at the time. They do not check to see if other passengers have a number higher than yours.” WHAT!!? Then what is the reason passengers PAY for a FAKE 36-hour boarding pass. Learn from my mistake and DO NOT PAY for an inflated fee that does not get you preferred boarding. Shame on you Southwest!
  • Good app overall, enhancements needed

    By DLhuegs
    The app is great if you’re booking your standard one way or roundtrip fares. It would be nice if you could book multiple destinations and legs of a trip within one booking in the app the way you can on the website. Also, it would be great if you could purchase inflight wifi from the app since our credit card and info is already attached there. Currently, you go through the website and browser. Also, if southwest could figure out a sign-in situation for the wifi to use on more than one device you own, that would be great. I had to pay $8 twice because I purchased the wifi on my phone first and then realized I needed to get work done on my laptop but could not use the same connection on more than one device. I believe Delta has figured it out, but it would be a great enhancement so I’m not double-paying or have to change my phone plan to use that as a hotspot for my laptop. If we’ve paid for wifi, it’s fair to be able to use it on multiple devices you own through some sign-on feature.
  • Beware Southwest Voucher

    By Soon to be previous customer
    I received a Southwest 100 voucher from Southwest after spending several hours delayed in the airport. I was pleasantly surprised until a attempted to use it but needed to cancel due to family emergency. What they FAILED to tell me is the voucher number changed to the flight I cancelled thus when I attempted to use it utilizing the voucher number it wouldn’t let me. I attempted to call southwest but this was during the hurricane emergency and several of their customer service locations were not available. I certainly understood that so I went ahead and scheduled my flight WITHOUT the voucher credit. Finally I got ahold of someone who said they could extend for another year because of my trouble and they could see where I had flown again with the voucher but they encouraged me to wait a couple of more months to call and extend since they could only do it once. I did so but the person I got said no. I explained to numerous phone calls and what I had been told but again was said no and no dialogue had been entered into my record. Be careful with your voucher IF you receive one. Southwest does not have the customer service it use to have.
  • A great suggestion from my Sis

    By I LIKE FREE 1965
    While planning for this trip to see my Sis in Washington, I must have looked on every site and looked up every travel carrier there is. A very slow and tedious process. I was so done and about to give up because I could not find what I wanted which was a cheap trip from Seattle, WA to Long Beach, Ca where I live. I did not want to be anywhere near LAX’s chaos, I just wanted to get home quickly. My Sis suggested Southwest which I was surprised that I hadn’t checked out. Booked me a trip just like! THEN - my hubby told of a time conflict he had - he had to be back in LBG on Monday. No problem, I thought, I’ll just talk to a rep to get the date changed. And I did talked to the rep and she assured me of the change. I printed out the tickets, didn’t look at the dates and left. (My bad) It wasn’t until I got ready to check in for the flight that I started having problems. Called a rep and guess what- no dates had been changed. Had to cancel so many things - horrible! The rep I talked to was so nice -LIZ - which why the rating is as it is but that rep bought it down. You only had ONE job...
  • Why I Prefer Southwest

    By ljcrist123
    My job requires that do a lot of traveling, the majority by air. Southwest makes flying easy for me. The Mobile App is quick and easy to use. If I need to change a flight, that is so easy and I really appreciate no change fee! I don’t have that with other airlines! The No Baggage Fee is the reason I started with SW, but the convenience of flying with them has kept me as a customer. I love the no hassle boarding and open seating policy. If they flew more routes to the Northeast, I would never fly any other airline. But the real reason I am a true SW Flier is their employees. Whether it’s the Sky Cap, the Counter Agents, the Flight Attendants, or the lady in the Lost Baggage Office (yes, it does happen) I have found all SW employees to go above and beyond what I experience on other airlines. They seem to really enjoy their job. And for the pilots (of which I’m a member of the club and tend to grade landings) you are the best! Keep doing what you are doing and I’m a Southwest customer for life!
  • Flights from Chicago to Phoenix

    By Ms.T, aka JenJen
    I’ve flown with Southwest a few times & I was pleasantly pleased. The Flight Attendees were very kind to my very talkative grandson. They not only kept him amused, but kept the hot chocolate coming, even a package to go upon leaving the flight. He still raves, saying those were my friends. He says ,”they really cared about me Ms.T, they really did. I am now & always looking for senior discounts & or just discounted flights period from Chicago to Glendale via Phoenix Airport and there are never any listed. Saddens me that all other destinations have discounts. So I am wondering what’s the reasoning differences. When I fly from Chicago to Glendale via Phoenix Airport, those flights are always filled, as on my return flights also from Phoenix. I plan on flying to Glendale sometime after the middle of February from Chicago’s Midway Airport to Phoenix Airport to reach my destination of Glendale Arizona. Thanks in advance for taking time to read. Virginia Taylor again Thanks You ....
