Southwest adds $40 fee to board early
The airline that doesn’t charge for baggage is increasing fees to board early.
Southwest Airlines’ general boarding procedure currently allows passengers early check-in for $10 each way.
The new fee, according to the company, will cost an additional $40 each way and guarantees passengers will be among the first 15 in line.
Early boarding generally allows passengers to secure space in overhead bins and to choose preferred seats.
