I love flying Southwest. I usually am one of the first to board and I prefer a seat in the back. However, my biggest complaint, is when there are delays. The delay is not the problem so much. But, when I have a connecting flight, and now only have a short window to get to my next flight, perhaps the airlines should consider letting connecting flights people off first. My last flight I paid extra for early boarding. My flight was so delayed that I made sure to sit in the closest seat near the front. Even so, by the time I got off, I was literally running to the opposite end of the airport to get my connection. The plane had already started boarding when I got there. What’s worse, the flight attendants knew I had a connecting flight which started boarding before the door opened on the flight I was currently on. Perhaps, when delays happen, it would be polite to let people who have connections get off first. Especially when the connecting flights are that close to leaving. Delays are going to happen, I’m good with that, but show some appreciation to those of us who have connection and a short window to get to them. ❤️

No need to call “Customer Support” for this need.

Needed to change a ticket; departure airport and date. I initially called Customer Support. There was a wait period and the system offered a call back. Since I was on my landline with the information needed on my mobile device. I contemplated waiting for the call back but while looking at the mobile I saw that I could possibly do the changes (modify) myself. I declined the call back and proceeded to MODIFY my flight requirements. The process was GREAT including paying the delta of the fare with my card that was on file. Additionally I could have paid with other options such as Apple Pay and Paypal. In this case the need for human intervention was not needed.

However there have been times that is has been needed. So Southwest please do not eliminate your human access/contact for your customers even as AI becomes more prevalent. This will be a major differentiator for your airline. As a cost of doing business. Your overall profits will be rewarded.

In summary- instead of waiting 16 mins for a call back. I was able to handle my business with Southwest in under 5 minutes. Again the process was Great!!

SWA is always my first airline of choice. The customer service is the highest, in my opinion, in the airline industry. I once lost my wallet on the flight. Not only did they find it and contact me, but it was sent to the headquarters and mailed back to me with everything in tact!!! Including all the money!! Southwest Rocks!!! Please; never go out of business!!! In contrast, I once left my beautiful leather jacket on a Delta flight. The plane was still at the gate and when I realized, almost immediately, that I had left the jacket in the overhead bin, I reported it to the gate attendant. I got no help and never got the jacket back. One other time with Delta, I had to check my bag at the gate because the overhead bins were full. That had valuable personal items in the bag. The bag was stollen, no ID put into the computer and I never got it back. For at least 5 years I have put Delta airlines out of business, in my mind. Again...Southwest is the B E S T!!! Every other airline and many other industries can learn a lot by paying attention to the SWA business model.
