|Quoting CentPIT (Thread starter):
I also am not very familiar with the WN seating besides that they have an A, B, C, D, and E section. How do I get window seats?
|Quoting Rottamo (Reply 2):|
Highly likely 737
|Quoting Atrude777 (Reply 3):|
They are ABCxDEF with A/F being Windows, B/E being middle seats and C and D being Aisle seats.
WN boards by groups. You have a better chance of getting an A card/Window Seat by checking in 24hrs in advanced online at southwest.com

I am showing A-25 for todays PHL-RDU SWA Arrival.
Thanks for Flying SWA and anymore questions ask here!
|Quoting CentPIT (Reply 4):|
Do you think that I will have to go from the D concourse to the E concourse when in PHL, or do you think the arriving PIT flight will be in the E concourse with the departing RDU flight and vise versa?
|Quoting Atrude777 (Reply 5):
Once again, looking today the RDU-PHL on your return happens to also arrive into D-3 at PHL, but your PHL-PIT is scheduled as E-9 today.
Hope this helps again!
|Quoting BishopOfPHL (Reply 8):|
I live in Phila so never really have the occasion to connect through PHL on US or WN, so I often wonder these things.....How often is it that folks need to switch from PHL Term D or Term E (or other direction) to connect on WN. I recently flew PIT-PHL and we came in at the D gate and wondered what a pain it must be to connect on to E with WN....the security lines were pretty long at D as I left the airport, and walking to the train I saw the same at E.
|Quoting CentPIT (Reply 9):|
Wait, so I would have to go through security to get back into the D or E? Oh, dear, I hope I just have to stay in one concourse! If I miss my flight I won't know what to do. I should have taken one of the non-stop PIT-RDU flights on US!
|Quoting BishopOfPHL (Reply 10):|
CentPIT, I wouldn't stress about the D to E transfer yet...looking at your flight combo for today (a comparable weekday sched), you should be all E Terminal on your way there, and all D Terminal on the way home.
|Quoting BishopOfPHL (Reply 10):|
As for taking US for the direct flight to RDU, look on the bright side - you get more segments from a spotting point of view, and you send a small message to WN that they should run a direct routing PIT-RDU....I think that route would do great, as with PHL there are tons of folks who have moved south to the RDU area from both ends of PA and the O/D has got to be there to make it worthwhile.
|Quoting Atrude777 (Reply 11):|
I really wouldn't worry centpit, you have over 2 hrs layover in PHL, plenty of time
|Quoting CentPIT (Reply 14):|
I just thought of something else. How do I keep my A boarding pass/card when I am connecting in PHL for my flight to RDU. Does it remain because I was in the A section in Pittsburgh or what? I really want window seats so how can I accomplish this....hahaha?
|Quoting BishopOfPHL (Reply 13):|
don't judge the whole of PHL airport or the city by the dankness of Terminal E.
|Quoting Vega (Reply 16):|
what makes you think any sentient being (other than those with a hidden negative agenda) would judge the entire city by the condition of Terminal E
|Quoting BishopOfPHL (Reply 17):|
Vega, by the way, do you have an answer to my reply #8? You seem to know a good bit about PHL's operations as well as the ongoing terminal shuffle. I'd hope that E would get a makeover too, if/when it becomes all WN, but I get the impression it's a bit difficult to get much in the way of gate improvement committments from them (think T1 in LAX).
|Quoting Atrude777 (Reply 15):|
When you check in, you are checking for both flights the PIT-PHL and the PHL-RDU.
|Quoting CentPIT (Reply 18):|
So right now, WN is the only airline using E, but they don't use all of the gates yet or what? Why isn't E connected to the rest of the airport?
|Quoting Usairways85 (Reply 20):|
Still haven't heard much reasoning behind DL staying in E. Some said it was because new international carriers, but they are just rumors and it would be at most 3 new flts a day.
|Quoting Usairways85 (Reply 23):|
Sometimes it depends more on who handles the flts. UA handles AC flts so AC is in D with UA.
I believe that NW and DL handle their own flts so in reality they really don't need to be in the same terminal with the exception of the NW club which i don't even know if its still open. Paxs are't going to connect from a NW flt to a DL flt so the need to be in the same terminal is not very high.
