“Each leg was early!”
Review of Southwest Airlines


Reviewed 17 February 2020

Both flights left early since we were all on board. I thought at first that the check-in counter opened late but eventually realized the fault was mine ... I was early, having misread my departure time. It was early and SWA staff were not their usual flip selves. I think that starts after 6 am.

Southwest is always good. If you want to get there in one piece and on time without drama. The seats are close but not as bad a some airlines... there are minimal snacks or food service.. even for purchase. As long as you plan for no frills you are getting exactly what you pay for. I'd rather eat what I want prior to the flight and have a low price with baggage included. I've never had a problem on Southwest Airlines.

I always like Southwest. Two free bags, no charge for seats, done in numerical order. The staff is usually exceptionally friendly as well. They need more direct flights coast to coast, and the one downside is that they have NO reciprocal relationships with any other airline, so if the plane doesn't make it or the last SW flight is cancelled, you are STUCK.

They need to negotiate harder on the flight reciprocity with other airlines. Other than that, my top choice.

SMF packed flight, but SMOOTH flight. Return also smooth, but not full. Staff was great & friendly. Pilot took off & landing was so smooth.
