Southwest Loyal! User friendly app, the flight selection & booking process is simple, get 2 free checked bags, and I don't have to worry about random fees. I almost cheated on Southwest one time. I saw cheap flights with another airline. I tried to book it several times, but when it was time to pay, "This flight does not exist at this price any more". & I would have to pay for each seat of each individual leg of flight. It wasn't worth the 2+ hours i spent trying to figure it out. Never again!

I love the accessibility and ease of this app. I see my itinerary immediately and am updated about any changes without having to log in and check up on it constantly. I also love the upgrade to business class and being automatically checked in without having to remember to check in myself 24 hours prior to flight. Will always fly with Southwest given the option

LOVE the low fare calculator but it's hard to navigate the site. If my profile is in there I don't want to have to plug in my reservation number every time. That's such a pain. Also hate that I can never get A boarding unless I pay. I got a ton of rewards up front but considering canceling my card because the rewards are better elsewhere.
