Self Connecting Flights

Aloha
New Arrival

I have booked self connecting flights from OKC to Honolulu. We will arrive in LAX at 11:30pm and then leave for Honolulu early the next morning leaving an approximate 4 hr layorver. I plan to stay in the airport for this layover. Will I need to claim my baggage and recheck it since these are self connecting flights and not a scheduled connection throught SW?

You will need to get your bag at LAX, Southwest will not store your bag overnight.

Both themiddleseat and I assume you meant 2 separate flights you paid for individually

as opposed to a simple connection.

Yes, that is correct. I booked two seperate flights. One from OKC to LAX and then one from LAX to Honolulu. As opposed to booking OKC to Honolulu.
