SW Airlines is now boarding from the front and the rear of the plane at Ft. Lauderdale airport. To board in the back, you walk down some metal stairs down to the tarmac, then walk up metal stairs into the aircraft. If you are in B boarding group or C, do it. My husband and I had mid B boarding passes but ended up in the last row, him in a middle seat and me by the restroom, last two seats left. While we were in line on the jet way in the front of the plane, waiting for people to stuff their bags in the overhead, the C group snagged all the seats in the back of the plane.
