2. Purchase Two Seats
Purchasing two seats is always a good idea, especially if you’re flying via Southwest. The company has a “Customer of Size” policy that allows plus-size travelers to pre-purchase additional seats, and the cost of the extra seat is fully refundable.
If you prefer not to purchase the additional seat upfront, you can speak to an agent at the terminal and they’ll make sure to give you an extra seat free of charge. Southwest is committed to making sure each customer has an adequate and safe traveling experience, especially for those who have special needs or specific traveling requirements.
The extra seat means you’ll be able to lift up the armrest and stretch out comfortably without encroaching on someone else’s space.
