How to File a Complaint Against Southwest Airlines

Companies don't always respond to our complaints, and that's a well-known fact. They simply just don't want to deal with it most of the time. It's very easy for a big company, like Southwest Airlines, to glance over someone's complaint and toss it out like it never mattered in the first place. That's simply bad service, and every customer deserves to be heard when they have an issue. If Southwest Airlines refuses to respond to your complaint and fix the issue, then it's time to take your complaint even further.

You can choose to file a complaint with the following:

  • Better Business Bureau
  • Federal Trade Commission
  • State attorney of Texas
  • State in which Southwest Airlines headquarters are located

Before doing that, though, you may want to take your issue to social media. Some complaints can gain major attention, especially if other customers have experienced the same problem as you. Sometimes it provides a better chance of the issue being resolved, as companies don't want a bad online reputation.

To file a complaint against Southwest Airlines:

  1. Contact the BBB or FTC online and file a complaint with them.
  2. If you're unsuccessful in receiving a response, you can contact Texas' state attorney.
  3. If neither of those work, then you can choose to take the company to small claims court.

Sue Southwest Airlines if Your Issue Is Not Resolved

If a company still ignores you after you've tried every way you can to get their attention, then it's time to teach them a lesson by taking them to small claims court. They cannot ignore the issue without getting in legal trouble at that point, and they'll most likely try to resolve the issue outside of court. In order to avoid a bad public reputation, Southwest Airlines will have to respond to your complaint. Court proceedings against big companies often make it to major media platforms, which can cause them to lose a lot more than just one customer as a result of the unresolved complaint.
