When we stayed at AKL and BLT, Southwest was part of DME. I know at one point there were a couple hotels that were not doing southwest yet but I'm not sure the progress on that as it was about a year ago. I'm sure someone else will know more recent information.

Thanks for the quick reply. We will be at AKL Kidani for the trip that I may need Southwest. United's fares are sky high I hate giving them up since it is a direct flight for me. But to save $$$ I would go Southwest.

We just returned from our trip and Southwest is part of DME, in addition you can also use Resort Airline Check-in for your return flight. This worked out great for us, in the morning we checked our luggage with them, they also issued our boarding passes to us. We did online check-in with Southwest 24 hours in advance on our cell phones and received A boarding group.
We left our carry-ons with the bellhop. We were then free to do what we wanted until it was time for our DME bus. When it was time for our bus we retrieved our carry-ons and jumped on the bus. Upon arrival at the airport went straight to security. Very easy process.
DME is available for anyone staying on property, regardless of the airline. It's the Resort Airline Check-In (completely different service) that is airline specific and now Southwest is a part of that.
DME is available for anyone staying on property, but if your airline isn't particpating , you have to get your luggage and take it with you to DME. southwest is participating, We used it last year at POP, and I think it is fantastic.
