southwest airlines

I was flying Southwest, where there are no reserved seats. There was a group of three adult women who were all friends. Note that they were not disabled or with special needs, just friends flying to the same destination together. In addition, this was a full flight (143 seats, 143 passengers).

So I was flying Southwest Airlines to Boston from Phoenix.  I couldn’t sleep the night before, so I looked forward to a pillow and being curled up against a window. I got my “A” boarding pass (lucky) and sat in my window seat.

I was heading home from San Francisco back to Phoenix. I checked in at Southwest Airlines and got, I think, seat B32. As I was sitting in the terminal by the gate, I heard a guy talking to a girl. His conversation centered around the fact that they both got “C” boarding passes and he […]

I bought a round-trip ticket from Chicago to San Jose, California on American Airlines… but because of changes in my friend’s departure, I ended up buying another ticket to go out to San Jose on Southwest, figuring I’d just catch the American flight back (that I paid almost $500 for). Suckah! I called to double-check […]

The wife and I just got back from Orlando via Southwest. I always try to use this airline as their prices and service are great. Anyway, they don’t have a seat purchase program but rather an EarlyBird check-in which gives you an earlier spot in line to board the plane.

It was April Fools Day 2013 and we were flying Southwest from RDU to MCO. We were seated front row left. An overweight senior male was seated aisle seat, front row right. Thirty minutes into our 1.5 hour flight we started to smell poop. We were thinking maybe someone’s baby needed a diaper change?

My husband and I were connecting in Phoenix via Southwest Airlines and finishing out our last 45 minutes until landing at John Wayne Airport. We were riding up front on the left hand side of the plane. A very large, overweight female senior was seated in the front row on the right side. She was […]

My daughter and I were booked on an AirTran flight from Milwaukee to Washington DC on Sunday Aug 5th. During the day I went online and realized early that the flight was delayed by two hours, re-scheduled to depart at 9:30 PM. But common sense and advice tells you to go to the airport as […]

It was February of 2010 when a friend and I decided to go and visit a close friend in Philadelphia. The two of us go to college in Texas about 100 miles outside of Houston. We booked our trip a few weeks in advance and planned on leaving Friday afternoon and returning Sunday evening to […]

A16. I love that number. As anyone who flies Southwest knows, that’s a magical number. That number means you can sit just about anywhere you want. On this particular flight from Denver to Ont., California, I chose to sit in the aisle seat of the bulkhead. People streamed past me to further aisles. On the […]

Hello Delta Customer Service, I would like you to please help me answer a question. I am trying to figure out the following: Why would I ever fly Delta Airlines again? I had a non-direct flight that required me to switch terminals in the PHX airport in order to board a Delta flight. As soon […]
