5 Things Southwest is Thankful to Offer You This Holiday Season

Explorer A

This time of year always reminds me that I have so many things to be grateful for.  I’m thankful for my family and our good health, but also for the 35,000 Southwest Warriors who every year make sure Customers’ holiday travels go as smoothly as possible.  Just to name a few, here are five things we at Southwest are thankful to offer you this holiday season.


 We’re thankful to provide our Customers with a simple travel experience. 
From our easy online check-in on to Customer offerings like EarlyBird where we save you a boarding pass or our Express Bag Drop, our goal is to simplify your overall experience.

We’re thankful to save our Customers money with Bags Fly Free. 
Whether you’re headed home to eat turkey with friends and family or traveling last minute for business, you can check two pieces of luggage, no charge, including golf clubs and skis.

We’re thankful to offer a spirited cocktail on Thanksgiving, compliments of SWA.   
It’s always happy hour at Southwest, on Thanksgiving, so cheers to a complimentary adult beverage for all you turkeys out there!

We’re thankful to have the happiest Employees in the industry.
For nearly 40 years, our Employees continue to not only deliver outstanding Customer Service but find ways to improve the Customer experience.  At the end of the day, our Employees are here for you—ready to offer their FUN-LUVing attitudes and a smile.

And, last but not least, we’re thankful for our Customers.
Without you, there wouldn’t be a LUV airline.  We’ve carried hundreds of millions of Customers, and we want to thank you for coming back time and time again and affording us the privilege and opportunity to serve you.

Here’s to hoping you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving!
