Southwest Airlines Boarding Passes Now Display A-List Status

Explorer C

Southwest Airlines is always looking for ways to improve our Customer experience and being an A-List Member just got better. Beginning Aug. 2, 2010, A-List status will be printed on all versions of the Southwest boarding pass and on security documents. That means if a Customer forgets to bring their A-List Membership card, there’s no need to worry.  With this new enhancement Customers can easily access Southwest’s coveted Fly By Priority Lane™.

There are many perks to being on the A-List which include a priority boarding position--most likely an “A”-- when purchasing travel at least 36 hours prior to the flight. A-List Members will also gain access to Fly By™ Priority Lanes for both checkin and security where available. To see which Southwest cities have Fly-By Lanes™, click here.

To earn A-List status, Customers must fly 16 roundtrips (32 one-way flights) in 12 months.  Visit our page of FAQs for more information about Southwest’s A-List recognition.
