We will be flying next month and wondering if my husband will be ok without a seat belt extender.  He is 5'7 and around 320.  Should we do early bird check in?

 

Thank you for you input.

I suggest you review Southwest's customer of size policy if you haven't already.

https://www.southwest.com/html/generated/help/faqs/extra_seat_policy_faq.html

 

The policy suggests preboarding so you should be able to utilize that instead of purchasing EarlyBird Check-In. You should also consider purchasing the extra seat that is described in the policy.

 

Regarding seatbelt extensions, here's what the policy says:

"Only one seatbelt extension may be used and only seatbelt extensions provided by Southwest Airlines are approved for use onboard our aircraft."

 

Have a great trip!
