Southwest Airlines continues to have computer problems that are causing its best customers to lose a major perk -- early boarding.
The airline said Wednesday that it partially fixed the problem but was still working to make things right and find the cause of the glitch.
A spokeswoman says Southwest is giving extra frequent-flyer points to A-List and A-List Preferred customers who didn't get priority boarding in the last few days. It takes 25 one-way flights or a certain number of points in a calendar year to qualify for A-List, and 50 flights or even more points for A-List Preferred.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Most Southwest passengers board in the order they check in. Priority privileges can mean the difference between an aisle seat up front or a middle seat farther back.
Dallas-based Southwest carries the most passengers within the U.S. of any airline.
