Woman's Viral Video About Flying 'Southwest Airlines' Is Cracking Us Up

Where you sit on a flight can make all the difference when it comes to your overall experience. Most of the time, where you sit is under your control, but on some seats are determined by luck. Take Southwest Airlines, for example. Most people know that instead of an assigned seat, you get a boarding position, which determines the order in which you get to choose your seat on the plane. Some people actually love it!

In a video that was shared on TikTok by @abbie.cheeseman, she showcases what it really feels like to fly on Southwest. She shares a hack that can make all the difference when flying with this popular airline. This TikTok is so spot-on!

Haha, this is so true! When you don't do early bird checkin on Southwest and you don't get in 24 hours before, you wind up with the worst seat! The comments are making us all LOL! One commenter hit the nail right on the head, saying, "Boarding group c is actually the Hunger Games of the air." Ha! It's so true. You either have to get early bird, or you really are taking a leap of faith.

Believe it or not, there are still people out there who haven't quite mastered the art of flying Southwest, and they were shocked to hear about this little tip. One TikTok user, @heathersmith1019, said, "This TikTok has changed my life. I am always in the late C’s and I had no idea why 🤣." One thing's for sure, you can always count on TikTok to teach you something new every day. Better luck for getting an A or B boarding group next time, Heather!
