Non-revenue listings tend to cost only the fraction of the price of standard flight tickets, but only if you get them on time. SWALife facilitates the process for those eligible, including employees.
Smart but clunky in execution
SWALife is an app for Southwest Airline employees to handle non-revenue listings from their mobile devices on the go.
SWALife seeks to make traveling more comfortable for its employees by letting them create, recover, or cancel their non-revenue listings from their smartphones.
Conveniently, this app covers both domestic and international flights. Moreover, the app is connected to the website, providing company information and the newest changes.
SWALife is also safe to use. During login, you give a password that keeps your data protected. Although it's a bit of a bother to log in every time, especially since the app logs out after a period of inactivity, the process also reinforces its security perk.
The UI is not entirely user-friendly. While the app looks sleek, navigating it can be troublesome. For example, the application fields don't auto-fill.
Where can you run this program?
This mobile app runs on Android devices 4.4 and up, as well as iOS 8.0 and later.
Is there a better alternative?
No, at least not for Southwest Airlines. However, for all flight-related matters and a bit extra, Momondo, Skyscanner, and Kayak are all highly functional.
The idea behind this app is excellent and security measures, commendable. It’s a shame that it’s not better executed, though.
Should you download it?
Yes, if you’re a current or former Southwest Airlines employee, or otherwise eligible for non-rev listings. Although it’s glitchy, this app can help you a lot.
