Any Tips of Flying Standby on Southwest?

Jump to last reply

Posted this also on the airlines forums, but thought I'd try here too.

For Christmas, I received enough standby coupons on Southwest for 2 complete round trip flights (with a maximum of one layover on each one-way trip).

I'm in Seattle, and ideally I'll fly nonstop on a weekend to either Oakland (head to San Francisco), San Jose (head to Monterey/Carmel), Vegas (Vegas!), or Phoenix (to see the sun).

Does anyone have any tips for how to determine my best chances for getting on a Southwest flight as a standby passenger? My parents also got coupons but they have more flexibility and do not restrict themselves to a nonstop flight (or weekend only flights).

Thanks!
