Ratings and Reviews
Southwest my Goto Airline
Southwest is my Goto Airline! Southwest (SW) has been my Goto airlines for the past 14 years since my oldest daughter starting traveling for Debate competitions and my other children followed. SW’s customer service has always been on point, helpful, and quick service-faster than most. They are a passenger friendly service with luggage + carryon, airfare + exchanges! They still put the passenger/customer needs a part of the equation when you are PLANNING a trip! Keyword here “planning.” Most of us don’t always know what outcomes of our trips may be. Take a college student athlete graduating.. that student could have a date for you, so you purchase the tickets in advance in order to get the best pricing. Four weeks later the college changes the date of graduation, and you are left with only 2-3 wks before the new graduation date, having to change all your plans! SW, has always helped us with unexpected changes w/o penalizing with outrageous fees for things we couldn’t prevent or needed to change.
Thanks Southwest for being our No.1, Goto Airline Service. I am grateful for all your service. I am grateful you service the needs of your customers where possible and being there to help.
Everything is a hassle
I bought a ticket that says they would auto check in for me 24 hours ahead and got an email confirmation that I was checked in. I was assigned an A number, and downloaded my boarding passes to my phone for my flight as well as my connecting flight. When I went to check in my bag, the attendant scolded me that I had not printed a bag tag and told me “look at everyone else they have tags on their bags“ and I offered to leave the line and go to the kiosk and print it. She printed it for me and told me I should’ve already printed it. On my incoming trip, they printed your bag tag when you brought your bag to the counter. My bag left and I went to the gate with boarding pass in hand, but they would not let me board and said I hadn’t checked in. Too bad for me (and rude). I had to go to the attendant and could no longer board with the A’s despite paying for business class. She printed me a boarding pass and scolded me “don’t get stressed out, everyone’s getting there at the same.” That’s 3 rude Southwest employees within 30 minutes. You’d think they would be trained that sometimes traveling is stressful for customers, and being unkind doesn’t help. I was so scared I wouldn’t get home that I was in tears by the time I boarded. My connecting flight was announced it would board in 5 minutes and we all got up. Five minutes later we were told it was delayed over 2 hours and sat back down. These things happen, but there’s no need to be unkind to customers.
App is great. Airline not what it used to be.
For many, many years this was my go to airline. Circa summer 2018 it became very unreliable (I take the same trip several times a year). My trips always include a layover and it’s been YEARS since I’ve been through all four flight segments w/ out a delay. The boarding system is a pain. No matter how diligent I am at checking in exactly 24 hrs prior to flight I still get stuck in end of A or B group and much worse than this is being stuck w/ a middle seat because 1st flight gets delayed to the point you cannot make it to the gate for 2nd flight until boarding is either over or almost over. I will give them props for holding connecting flights so as to not strand me and others but ideally wouldn’t have so many delays to begin with. Back in the 90’s and early turn of the century they were a clean, mean machine when it came to reliability. And, unless you’re taking a short flight (which I believe they still excel at) their prices are no longer competitive. And my biggest beef w/ this airline is sitting at the gate w/ no AC running so you melt & feel miserable. Then in air it’s frigid to the point you cannot get comfortable no matter what. This last one is what had really driven me away from this airline. I cannot stand being stuck on a plane that cannot regulate its cabin temp. No one wants this. Hoping they turn around and become as great as they once were.
