Lost luggage claim laxwn7341****

Our attendant Nicky was very helpful. Nicky stayed on with us until all of our Southwest Airlines needs were met.

But after managing all of our claim needs she then asked if there was anything else she could help us with anything else, I requested winning lottery numbers.

Nicky replied that she was sorry that she had issued the ones she had the day before. Someone must have been very happy but we were happy just to talk with her!

This was my third call, eventually gave a credit with SW for the hotel portion. The hotel was TERRIBLE- *** parking lot drug deals, doors that didn’t close tightly terrible. Unbelievable it was on their vacation hotels list.
