    Connecting is easy and can be completed in a few easy steps:

    1. Once the Flight Attendant has announced it is safe to use approved portable electronics, turn on your WiFi-enabled device and set to airplane mode (if applicable).
    2. View available wireless networks, select “Southwest WiFi,” and connect.
    3. Launch your Internet browser for immediate access to the Southwest Airlines Hotspot portal and all it has to offer.
    4. Click on the A-List Preferred text link below the “Get Connected” button (an “A-List Preferred” link is also available on the initial payment page).
    5. Enter your Rapid Rewards username or account number and password in the A-List Preferred popup window.
    6. Enjoy surfing the web at 30,000 feet!
