What snacks are served on Southwest?

Complimentary snacks are offered to passengers with even more options available when flying between Hawaii and the continental U.S. These include items such as pretzels and crackers.

Southwest Airlines does not offer snacks for sale onboard, so if you anticipate getting hungry during your flight, it’s a good idea to bring your own food with you.
