Southwest Airlines Powershell Checkin Script

If you’ve ever flown Southwest Airlines you know that getting checked in as soon as you can is key to not getting stuck at the end of boarding group C and ending up in a middle seat in the back of the plane. This awesome Powershell script (courtesey of Bill Grauer) allows you to set a scheduled task to automatically check in your flight for you, so you don’t have to mess with calendar reminders or forgetting it entirely.

The script takes 3 parameters: First, Last, and Conf. Schedule it to run 1 minute before your checkin time and it will loop through for a few minutes or until you’re checked in. I also updated the log location to be my Dropbox folder, allowing me to validate that the check-in was successful from my mobile device (or anywhere else with Dropbox access).
