Southwest Airlines App for Android Released

18 – the airline with the catchy and funny commercials that really do make me want to fly with them – has released their Android app for all to book flights, reserve cars, check up on their rewards programs, and more. It’s a 1.5MB download and sounds like it’ll be well worth the space it takes up if you’re a fan of low rates and free bags. It’s on!

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  2. Hard to believe people are still getting suckered into flying on that cattle-call airline! Compare fares, people!!

  3. todd,
    maybe in your city they’re not cheapest. they are in mine.

  4. @Todd, they are usually the cheapest flights available. I don’t really like the A,B,C boarding, but their fares, and lack of baggage fees are a plus.

  5. Cattle-Call? Hardly. The boarding process changed and actually is pretty nice. Our seats are comfy and our crews are awesome!

  6. I get $29 flights with southwest…for those rates I’d be willing to stand in a box in the cargo area like a cow…thanks for the heads up on the app.

  7. I’m waiting for the jetblue app!! They need one stat

  8. Hard to believe people are still assuming their situation is the same as everyone else! More explanation marks, people!!

  9. Todd must work for a legacy airline that charges people change fees, luggage fees, and more fees.

  10. I am happy about this app. I LOVE southwest….use them all the time. MUCH cheaper than USAIR in Pgh market. Love their staff….they make flying a little bit of fun in this crazy travel world we live in. I love their non-union mentality….let’s all pitch in and get the job done. The day I saw a pilot helping to clean….I knew this was the airline for me. Everyone seems to work together for the customer.

  11. the bar code took me to App brain not the market… is this right?

  12. @ron QFT!
    They are the only airline that is run well. There is not a quicker boarding process in the industry and no one turns a plane in 25 minutes accept SWA. They also have more comfortable seats than anyone…I only wish the wifi was free. :)

  13. Garbage app for a garbage airline. Everybody turns a plane over in 25 minutes. And they don’t make you sit 3-a-side in a tiny jet that should only have 2-a-side to begin with. The fact they bought ScareTran speaks volumes of their quality.

  14. What about DING?

  15. JetBlue is awesome.

  16. sounds like tf is a little sour. maybe he didnt get hired when he applied with them.

  17. Sounds like djfusion isn’t aware that there’s plenty of airlines that are far cheaper and don’t herd you like cattle. Way to make assumptions about my work tho… too bad I work for a multi-national BANK and could care less about that shit airline.

  18. When I use the flight status function, if a plane is delayed, it says “delayed”, but it does not give you the new estimated arrival time. When I checked the same flight on the website it said “delayed” and then it gave you a new “actual” as the new estimated arrival time. Any thoughts?
