Sale fares include a carry-on bag, a personal item, and two free checked bags up to 50lbs/23kg each.

Seat Assignments

Southwest has an open seating policy, which means there are no assigned seats and you'll get to choose your seat during boarding. The order of boarding is determined by the time of check-in so check-in exactly 24 hours before departure or pay for priority boarding for a better choice of seat.

Alternate Fares

Hawaiian Airlines is fare matching on many of these routes, so if you prefer to fly with them, you should be able to find an itinerary at the same price point. Keep in mind that Hawaiian's baggage policy isn't as generous as Southwest's and checked baggage will cost additional.
