Southwest.com doesn't work when I'm in a foreign country?

I'm in Latin America. I will be in Los Angeles and trying to find pricing from LAX.
i can't get Southwest.com to even come up.
also Southwest app doesn't come up either.
error msg:

Access Denied

You don't have permission to access "http://mobile.southwest.com/" on this server.

But internet works. (Ie: I'm posting here)
​​​​​​W t f??

I'm using an international sim.
I've also VPN to various locations in the USA and still the same problem.

What's going on? Any help?
(Frustrated!!)

Lots of companies do this. Lots of threads on this. IP Blocking that companies use to prevent foreign access in hopes of limiting fraud. Yes, they know they might lose a customer/flight-booking because of this decision.

That's new. Other blocks are well-documented.

It shouldn't matter where in "Latin America" you're located. VPN could be misbehaving or misconfigured.
