Questions We Hear the Most

  • I have a child traveling on one of your flights as an Unaccompanied Minor. How does this process work?

    Children ages five through 11 traveling without an accompanying Passenger age 12 or older must travel as an Unaccompanied Minor (UM), and there is a charge $50 each way ($100 roundtrip) in addition to the air fare per child. UMs may only travel on nonstop or direct (makes one or more stops but does not require a change of planes or flight number) flights. We will not transport UMs on flights that may be diverted or cancelled due to inclement weather or other operational abnormalities.  In addition, there are certain procedures in place that UMs must follow before, during, and after their journey.

  • Oops, I left something on the plane. Can I get it back?

    If you realize that you left an important item onboard the plane, please notify a Southwest Airlines Customer Service Agent before leaving the airport so he or she can try to retrieve the item.  If you’ve left the airport, please contact our lost and found.  Please provide detailed information regarding the item (i.e. model/serial number, brand, size, color, etc.).  We will make every effort to locate your item and return it to you. If you provide an email address you will receive regular communication on the status of the search for your item and will be contacted via email and phone if it’s located.  If you do not provide an email address you will only be contacted by phone if your item is located.  If we have not located your item within 30 days from the time it was reported, it is not likely that it was  turned in.  While we make every effort to locate lost items, Southwest Airlines is not liable for unchecked items left on the plane.
