4 thoughts on “Southwest Airlines Customer Service Phone Number

  1. What is the phone number for Southwest airlines visa cards I can’t find it. You got 15 different things to call me out here.

  2. I can’t login with forgotten password, the online system insist on repeating with giving me chance to enter the proper one, but no guess worked, neither I got an offer to change my password. Now, even the Southwest app does not give a chance to get a new password…so, I am waiting to get a Southwest human over the phone to let me know what to do…is the loss of password so uncommon?

  3. I am currently in South Africa.

    I have tried every way I can to check on a flight I will take when I return to America. says i don’t have permissions.
    Every phone number I’ve called hangs up without connecting.
    The e-mail links are a page on (fancy that!!)
    I don’t have facebook, twitter or googleplus.

    I am totally baffled that Southwest would go to such lengths to prevent contact from customers or potential customers!!

  4. One of my daughters is flying Southwest today to Florida and was so impressed that one of the stewardesses asked the passengers to clap for the military on board! I have a big facebook following and posted this on my site. I said people need to support those honoring our patriots/military! God bless you for standing for America! I will be flying Southwest the next time I fly thanks to this act of kindness to our military!
