“Avoid LAX”
Review of Southwest Airlines


Reviewed 25 February 2018

I chose this route flying into smaller Ontario Airport to avoid the chaos of LAX when planning a trip to Palm Desert. We were on a larger newer SWA plane which was great. Renting a car was easy and only a bit over an hour to drive to the desert. Outbound flight was Nashville-Oakland-Ontario. Return was Ontario-Phoenix-Nashville. No complaints—-friendly o time service.

Thank Proseco

So, this is the only airline that I know that doesn’t charge for baggage...at least for the first two checked-in bags. Seating is first come first serve so make sure to check in early. Prices are comprobable.

    • Customer service (e.g. attitude, care, helpfulness)
    • Legroom
    • In-flight entertainment (WiFi, TV, films)

The flight was perfect going and returning. The attendants were very pleasant. . Just a little turbulence. It was a full flight , and as close to departure time due to de-icing. The plane was clean. I just wish planes had more leg room.

Nonstop flight - all seats are economy but cheaper and more comfortable than other airlines. The flight crew are always top notch - professional and friendly, not snooty like other airlines if you are not a frequent flyer. Snacks and water/coffee/sodas are always free and cocktails/wine/beer are only $5.

On our trip back from the mountain states, we ended up in Utah and needed a flight back to the east coast. We chose Southwest airlines to get us home. Although there were a few delays, the pilot picked up some of the time in the air and got us home quick !! One stop in Denver and then we ended up in Boston. Smooth and uneventful flight.
