THE Best!!! Of all the apps ever used this one is the best. I literally just booked a flight for my partner in less than a minute and it takes even less time to book mine because my info auto populates. I'm so grateful for Southwest keeping me connected with my family. I've flown all the other major airlines. Southwest is the way to go. Their app makes my travels seamless. Flight status, hands free checking in, boarding passes and more all in this beautiful app. Thank you Southwest!

Great app, we only fly Southwest. Can't beat 2 free checked bags...Period!! Booking flights is easy to do and finding deals is also easy. I wish I could get the companion pass again!! Quick edit, please put on the app under the points everyone has how much money credits they have available. I just booked 2 flights and didn't know I had like $300 available to use because you can only see it if you use the website on a computer, laptop, tablet or web browser on your phone. Thanks

App is generally terrific! My main gripe is the inability to enter email addresses to share your itinerary with when booking a flight. That feature only exists on the website. Additionally, I've been getting randomly signed out. Even though I enable fingerprint login every time, I never get an option to use that. The app seems to support autofill but for some reason that rarely works (possibly an issue with my password manager? Hard to say...)
