Southwest Upgrade?

How does this work on SW? I have a full-fare coach ticket, so would I have any chance of upgrade at check-in? If so, any best strategy? I rarely have a full-fare ticket, so I've never needed to know before. Thanks for any advice/info!

Upgrade to what?
I never flew SW, but I do believe it's one class only.
Sorry.

Yep, Southwest is all coach unless you're the pilot.

Yes, you are correct! I'm multi-tasking here and it's obviously taking a toll on my mental faculties. Thanks for the reminder.

Jenny,

Full fare coach on SWA does have an advantage.

You can change your flight( earlier or later) for no additonal charge.

Anyone on a discount ticket has to pay additional if they want to change their flight...like if you get to the airport early and want to take an earlier flight.

About the only upgrade would get is to fly backwards!! HOWEVER, Southwest lets you change your ticket for no fee and you can trade it to someone else, if it is an E ticket if you can not use it.

I like Southwest for that reason.

Annie: Southwest doesn't offer paper tickets unless it's the handwritten type done by a travel agent for a huge surcharge. Technically they don't even do e-tickets, they are considered "ticketless"

To Hee Hee Hee,
I beg your pardon. I do paper tickets on Southwest for customers paying by check, AND there is no extra fee.

I own my own travel agency (15 years now).

If a passenger pays by check you can not do E Tickets with Southwest and also the ability to make name changes goes away.

I suggest you call your local travel agent to verify my information.

So probably I who can say hee hee hee.

My TA does not charge me a fee for a Southwest ticket....They still pay travel agents commission, one if not THE last one to continue paying the TA's..
