Note: Southwest estimates the 737 MAX will not return to service until at least the second quarter of 2021. Customers are able to view the scheduled aircraft type on their itinerary. Please keep in mind that aircraft swaps can occur, meaning the scheduled aircraft at the time of booking may be different than the aircraft type scheduled on the day of travel. We encourage Customers to check aircraft type closer to the scheduled departure date.

Is there anywhere else I can check my aircraft type?

Customers also have the ability to view aircraft type on the flight status pages on as well as iOS and Android mobile apps. As changes to the aircraft type are made, the aircraft type indicator will update immediately. Customers will also be able to view aircraft type on in the Select Flight flow, as they had previously. Customers using the mobile app must have the latest version 6.8 downloaded to view the aircraft type in flight status.
