Spreading Holiday Cheer with Southwest’s December Inflight Entertainment Offerings


It is beginning to look a lot like the holidays and Southwest Airlines is excited to share holiday cheer through our free inflight entertainment offerings for our Customers to enjoy while inflight, including movies, live TV offerings, custom TV series channels, and iHeartRadio’s free all-in-one digital music and live streaming radio service available onboard our WiFi-equipped fleet. Treat yo’elf to one of the free movies offered onboard, including Elf, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and A Bad Moms Christmas. You’re in for a jolly good time!


We’ve also added fan-favorites Mulan and The Personal History of David Copperfield to our current movie line-up with more than 50 movies to choose from this month.


Enjoy one of this month’s featured movies, Elf, available on the Inflight Entertainment Portal. Watch as Buddy the elf discovers he really isn’t an elf and tries to find his real father in New York City. Will the fast-paced pressure of New York, New York, be too much for Buddy? Or will Buddy spread his holiday cheer for everyone to hear?
