Southwest Airlines Community

[ALERT] Systemwide Outages

Retired Community Manager


UPDATE at 8:00 p.m. CDT: Once our systems resume full functionality, we’re offering flexible accommodations for rebooking your travel. Please stay tuned for more.




Southwest Airlines began experiencing intermittent performance issues earlier this afternoon with multiple technology systems as a result of an outage.  We are now managing flight delays across our system, with a temporary ground stop in place for those flights that have not left the gate. We apologize to our Customers whose travel plans are impacted.
