A nonstop flight between the cities can take close to two hours.
Passengers on a flight from Seattle to Dallas were turned around for an unusual reason over the weekend - a human heart was left on board.
Southwest spokesman Dan Landson confirmed to the newspaper that Flight 3606 landed at Sea-Tac International Airport after about three hours in flight, adding that the "life-critical cargo shipment" was removed from the plane.
Deanna Santa of Sierra Donor Services in Sacramento, Calif., said the organ-procurement organization sent the heart through a courier, who picked it up in Sacramento for shipment to Seattle.
However, no Seattle-area hospitals said they were involved.
Southwest Airlines was tasked with flying the heart from Sacramento to Washington, where an unidentified hospital was awaiting the organ.

Hundreds of 'yellow vest' protesters are detained in Paris
Already dozens of tax offices across the country have been attacked and mass protests are planned in Paris and other cities. But many "yellow vests" are urging fresh protests this weekend, saying a string of government concessions are not enough.
Someone forgot to unload the heart before the plane left for Dallas, and the captain announced over Idaho they were turning back.
It's unclear how long the flight was in the air before it made its return to Seattle or if the heart was intended for a specific patient.
However, many passengers were confused after finding out that a heart has limited time before it has to be transplanted.
At first, some passengers were shocked over the news but the reaction quickly turned to kindness, Dr. Andrew Gottschalk told the Times because everyone "was happy to save a life".
While the heart was likely needed for a transplant, it is not known exactly what objective it served. "We only use private flights", Pliska told The Seattle Times.
"We sincerely regret the inconvenience to the customers impacted by the delay", a Southwest Airlines spokesperson said.
