Special Update Regarding 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic
We are serving water and snacks on flights over 250 miles, when available. Straws are available on request. For all other flights, snack and beverage service is suspended until further notice to limit close interactions. (Began May 22)

Southwest Airlines recently unveiled our new Evolve interior, an eco-friendly, cost-efficient new look for our cabin with an emphasis on comfort and personal space.
The bottom cushion is more comfortable with better lumbar support and a fixed wing headrest on each seat that will provide for a more relaxing experience. We've replaced the seatback pocket with a netted pocket that not only allows for more knee room, but also makes it easier to see what items have been stowed in it. Learn more about our new Evolve interior.
Please note: Cabin components, furnishings, and fixtures may not be altered or operated in any manner inconsistent with their original design and performance specifications. Personal devices (e.g., Knee Defenders, infant slings) may not be attached to any part of the aircraft.
TripAdvisor named us "Best Airline in North America"
