7 Secrets To Getting The Best Seats On Southwest Airlines

1. What Makes For a “Good” Southwest Seat?

With all this seating debate, which seats are good? Nearly all airline seats are same. Except for exit rows, there's no more legroom, and there's no seat advantage other than location.

2. Check-In ASAP

Southwest loyalists always check in 24 hours before the trip. I occasionally set a minute-specific alarm! Open the Southwest website on your PC, smartphone, or app.

3. EarlyBird Check-In Option

Will you be allowed to check in 24 hours before your flight? Maybe buy Southwest EarlyBird Check-In. One-way EarlyBird Check-In is $15.00 per person.

Southwest automatically checks you in and gives your boarding position within 36 hours of your flight with EarlyBird Check-In.

4. Southwest Airlines Family Boarding Policy?

An parent with a kid under six can board during Family Boarding after the “A” group and before the “B” group.

If both kid and adult have a “A” boarding pass, they should board in their allotted location, but if either is B1 or later, this shortcut allows families seat together.

5. Southwest Boarding Groups Move Fast—Walk Up Front If Late

Once Southwest boards, things move swiftly. Walk to the front of the queue to board if you're late and have an earlier boarding slot. Cutting isn't rude here.

6. Pay Extra or Fly More

Southwest's Business Select ticket assures A1-A15 boarding. Although more expensive than fully refundable tickets, these tariffs include FlyBy Priority Security lane access and complimentary drink vouchers.

7. Want to be unpopular? Try Saving Seats

Some passengers try to save seats for later boarding. Southwest's lack of a policy on this conduct will annoy frequent flyers. If they do, crews seldom act.
