New Arrival

Im flying with a 1 year old and a 9 month old. Will I be able to bring both of their car seats ? Will I have to hold both of them ?

Southwest allows for one child under the age of two to fly for free with an adult.  This child does not require a ticket and thus is not entitled to a seat.  However, if you fly before the end of November, Southwest is not selling all seats on the plane so this child would be able to sit in a seat next to you if you wanted.  Since you are looking to fly with two children under the age of 2 you would need to buy a ticket for the second child.  The paid child is entitled to a seat.  Long story short, you will need to buy 2 tickets and you will be able to use a row of 3 seats if you fly before end of November.  Car seats can be checked as baggage for free or carried on.  You can also take advantage of family boarding between the A and B boarding groups.
