I Am Just Fed Up With Southwest.

I am so fed up with Southwest. I made dinner reservations at the Elk Tavern in Baltimore. The reservation was for 8:30. I was scheduled in SWA's fight plan to leave Cleveland Hopkins at 5:15. The plane arrived at 6:30. They didn't start boarding until 7:00. I arrived at BWI at 8:00. I'm fed up with their stampeding at the gate. It's like a rodeo to get the sacred number 1. I've had it with their chronic delays. On the way back the plane was 45 minutes late. On the plane the pilots were wearing shorts. It seems to me that that airline is trying to take the dignity out of flying. They always lower the standard. I miss the days when airlines had good service, that you remembered. I know that it was my fault for making dinner reservations. I guess you do get what you pay for, and what I paid for was a ticket for a seat in a plane. Nothing else. I didn't pay for an ontime arrival, or good service, that must cost extra. I don't know how an airline with such bad service can stay in business. I guess it's because of the low fares. Basically I got crap for service, lost dinner reservations, and an overall disappointment. I wish other airlines would match their fares, like JetBlue. I hope they have good service. When they come to Akron/Canton I will have no need to drive to Hopkins.

thank goodness. i thought i was the only one.
SWA's boarding process, service, and crap phantom hub system is somehting i try and avoid as often as possible. there is nothing quite like flying from msy to abq (a trip i took just last week) from msy -hou-lubbock-abq. i really enjoyed the round the world(texas) flight, but for only saving 30-40 bucks i would have just as assumed taking delta-to dfw then to abq. to bad that was full. overall you are correct, you get what you pay for and certainly not a bit more on SWA.

Thanks for showing some other facts, I just wanted to make sure it just wasn't on that route. There are too many Southwest sympathizers on this forum, that obscure the facts, and make excuses. It just has to stop, and I want to make sure that more people can share their Southwest stories, whether they be positive or negative.

I took a round trip PHX-SEA that had so many stops both ways that I thought I'd explode (or implode from hunger). As an aviation fan I love take offs and landings, but I had limited time and couldn't shake the thought of being able to drive it as fast.(I know, I know, but it seemed that way). I actually used the "B-word" to a woman in the line who declared that she had a condition that required her to use the bathroom every 20 minutes so she had to get on the plane first so she could sit by the lav despite her high boarding number. She called some old lady who pointed out her high number the same thing and I couldn't help it. That's very unlike me. And she never did use the lav. I did get some laughs by making cow and sheep noises during the stampede. A couple others did the same, which was cool. I respect them for filling their niche so well, but I won't be filling one of their seats again. Not worth the stress.

While I myself have never had any bad experiences with WN. But, then again, I've never flown them on any flight longer than LAX/ONT-LAS, ONT-SJC, ONT-PHX. But I must share a lot of your sentiments as far as "getting what you paid for". I think you already answered your own question. Unfortunately, most people will go through extraordinary lengths to save money, hence the popularity of Southwest. Because the public has that mentality, and Southwest is growing like a weed, they WILL be the size of American or United within 10 years.

Give me a break, guys. You all bought tickets on WN because they were the cheapest. If you don't like the service, break open your little piggie banks and fork over the extra dollars.

They might not always be on time, the boarding process sucks, but they always get you there safely and in reasonably new aircraft. You're not getting sympathy from me.

Somebody has to defend my friend Herb. I volunteer.

Every airline experiences delays. As a frequent flyer, you learn to expect it at certain times during the week, especially Friday afternoon and evening. My advice to you: get over it. I deal with it weekly, there is very little you can do to make it better.

If it rains in PHL, the airport shuts down. The carrier has nothing to do with that. It's ATC. Heck, BOS seems to shut down when it's sunny and bright. Anyway, if a plane gets delayed in Dallas for an hour, every flight that plane runs will be late. It's just the way the industry works. Of all the carriers in the US, Southwest is one of the few who can take a delay and turn it around to recover a lot of time within just a few segments.

I like the fact that Southwest encourages their people to dress down. Do you know how many pilots from other carriers act downright snobbish toward you when you're boarding the plane? Southwest reminds you that the flight crew is human too.

Keep in mind that Southwest is still at the top of the charts when it comes to on-time arrivals, safety, and lowest number of passenger complaints.

I'm hearing that the service is bad. How do you define service? Is service how the cabin crew and gate/ticketing agents treat you, or is service a four-course meal on a 90 minute flight? To most people, it's a combination of the two. However, you knew when you bought your ticket that the "snack" would be your coke and a bag of peanuts or pretzels. So if the crew was friendly and helpful, the only way you got bad service was if your coke was warm or your peanuts weren't salted.

There is one other thing that you have to remember, when Southwest comes into a city with new service, very rarely do they do it with less than ten flights. They usually offer a lot of flights to a lot of places, usually within one or two stops and/or connections.

In a lot of markets, Southwests's Y-fare tickets are about the same price as another carrier's discounted 14-day advanced purchase ticket.

If you want to get an insight of how and why Southwest does some of the crazy things they do, you need to read Nuts! : Southwest Airlines' Crazy Recipe for Business and Personal Success. I've set up the search link at Amazon, you'll find it here.

If you read this book, there is a story about a passenger who was never happy with her flights. She hated the fact that there was no meal, no first class seats, no pre-assigned seating, and that the people were off the wall. After several letters going through the customer service department, her letter was passed onto Herb, asking what they should do. Herb grabbed his notepad, hand-writing a letter that went something like "Dear Mrs. Crabtree, We'll miss you. Love, Herb."

My point to this story? If you don't like my friends at Southwest, and if you're going to whine about the "crap for service," please, go spend two or three times as much for a more limited flight schedule so you can get the same delays and even worse "crap for service" from UAL.

I agree with you completely... I work for America West here in PHX and don't appreciate Southwest taking away business, but they are a great company. They must be doing something right, even though I prefer not to fly them!

I do prefer the professionalism here at my airline by flight crews, but I do admire how they're able to be relaxed and fun loving at Southwest.

Here's some Texas talk for all you great Southwest employees:

Ya'll are doin' a great job o'er at Southwest Airlines... Keep it up and don't listen to these people... they'll eventually find other airlines, hopefully America West!

Huh?? Reasonable new aircraft????? I didn't know Boeing still made 737-200s!! Maybe I've been sleeping for the last 20 years.....

But seriously...Pilots in shorts???? Come on. I know they want to project a laid-back image..but a Pilot is still a professional. Look Like One for god's sake. If they want to "dress-down" try bluejeans, golf shirts, etc. But have some standards!!! Hey..even at K-Mart stores, which SW is constantly compared to, they make cashiers wear a vest with the "K".

People rush the gate thinking they got the best deal in aviation history but they don't realize that SW's fares are NOT always the lowest. Only in certain markets & times. Last year I would have flown them simply for the thrill of takeoffs & landings but I couldn't ignore another airline's lower fare....and professional service to go with that fare.

Bruce,

SWA operate over 60 spankin' new 737-700 aircraft, more than AA, DL, or CO. The 737-200's will be phased out and the 733's and 735's are still very young. Hell, SW was the launch customer of both the 735 and 73G.

Maybe their fares ain't always the best, but their point-to-point service is unrivalled. From my neck of the woods, WN are the only operators that can give me nonstops to CA destinations and to LAS. If I ever decide to go to Las Vegas, that will factor heavily in my decision to (maybe) pay a few bucks more.

Hypermike said it best: With Herb you know that you are getting a bag of peanuts period, with other airlines you are getting a "snack".

BTW, why criticize the airline because of the poor taste in clothes of the pilots. I'm sure there are SWA pilots who won't touch anything other than pressed pants and pilot whites.

If your place of business has "Casual Fridays" you will know what I mean. If John X wears an ugly Hawaiian shirt, it is unfair of me to say that his firm will provide me with substandard service.

Also, it boosts crew morale to let em wear what they like. Morale is something missing at a lot of major airlines.

The one, (and last) time I flew them it was point to point to point to point... it took all day, and frankly wasn't worth the minimal amount i saved. I'm sure it works for a lot of people, but count me out. I have had much better service and a much quicker overall trip flying United.

Then why don't you fly United if you think they have better service and quicker flights. Gosh, you were the one who chose the flights so just get over it. No need to bash Herb's airline. All airlines have a share of delays once in a while, it's not just SW. And the clothes, it's just style. I bet they feel a lot more comfortable in a pair of shorts and a golf shirt than what the usual pilots wear.

If you happen to be going to one of SW's "points" (notice I don't say "hubs") then its great. But a cross country flights.....can take all day......

I disagree about dress code. They don't have to always wear those "pilot whites" but there has to be some standard. The flying public is trusting their lives to these people. Its not an "ordinary" job. I don't trust my life to the pizza delivery guy, so I don't care what he's wearing.

Maybe it boosts morale but does it show pride in your job or company?

I think you are all jealous about the fact that your Airline didnt come up with the "dress down" idea first. So what if they wear shorts. Oh no!!!!!!! the brand new 737-700 is going to crash and burn beacause the pilot is wearing shorts, and the great salted peanuts are just going to keep the fire going. I dont think that the plane will crash if the pilot is wearing shorts. I personally enjoy the point-point-point-point thing, but i am my own person. The one thing i dont like is the "first one gets a free blow job from Pamela Lee" boarding plan, but hey Southwest is a great airline, even though the pilots wear shorts. But i agree with TWA 717 and Hypermike, go on ahead and pay more for a boring flight. Try Delta, they'll give you a boring one.

You get what you pay for. What'd you expect on Southwest? You made the reservation, take responsibility for it. I almost never fly them because of the cattle car feeling and lack of amenities but I'm glad Southwest is there to provide a cheaper and reliable alternative.

As for delays, yesterday had major weather problems from the midwest to the east coast. What'd you expect? Get real, my friend. In what sort of dream world are you living?

Very sorry to hear that your experience wasn't a positive one. There are numerous variables that affect the on-time performance of an airline, and without the specifics of your flight, any guess of mine as to why your flight was late would be just that--only a guess. One thing I can tell you is that Cleveland is often prone to sporadic ATC delays, and if the aircraft making up your CLE-BWI flight was delayed on its flight *into* CLE, well, delays have a way of cascading.

>>>I've had it with their chronic delays.

A check of the DOT stats and SWA's historic rankings would seem to indicate that the record is pretty good.

>>>On the way back the plane was 45 minutes late. On the plane the pilots were wearing shorts. It seems to me that that airline is trying to take the dignity out of flying. They always lower the standard. I miss the days when airlines had good service, that you remembered.

The pilots do not wear shorts, and my guess is that this was someone other than a pilot. As far as the dignity being removed from flying, I'd assess that that's a result of the Airline Deregulation Act of 1978, and the industry's move towards (and the public's expectations of) value-oriented air transportation.

>>>I know that it was my fault for making dinner reservations. I guess you do get what you pay for, and what I paid for was a ticket for a seat in a plane. Nothing else. I didn't pay for an ontime arrival, or good service, that must cost extra.

I've gotta ask this--would you have honestly made the above statements if your reservations had been for, say, *9:30*, and you'd been able to make it there on-time?

>>>I don't know how an airline with such bad service can stay in business. I guess it's because of the low fares. Basically I got crap for service, lost dinner reservations, and an overall disappointment.

Again, DOT stats, and 29 years of history pretty much answer your questions. Again, sorry you have a had a personally bad experience.

Wouldn't you agree that with no weather problems, 2 hrs is more than enough time to get to a not far away restaurant. That even accounts for a minor delay. As for the wonderful Point to Point service. You try being told you can't get off the plane in Tulsa to get something to eat after you have been fed trail bologna and trail mix for 4 hours. I think that is rediculous. As for the sympathizers, the Comtinental Cleveland to BWI flight was on time for a 1 hr. flight time from 6 to 7. There that means there was no weather delay.

There are three delays that I would gladly wait for, no matter what airline I was flying.

1. Weather.
One only has to look at the NTSB website to see how many accidents were caused by flying in borderline to unsafe weather conditions.

2. Maintenance.
I am married to a aircraft mechanic. I know they put their signature on the line everytime they fix something on a plane. I will gladly wait an extra one or two hours to make sure everything is just right.

3. ATC
No airline has control of when ATC orders a ground delay or closing of an airport. I support the measure that will disclose why a flight was delayed. That way the public will know not all delays are airline related.

I am glad the airline was thinking of your safety, when all you were thinking about was dinner.

This post is interesting reading for someone UK side of the pond.

The low budget revolution is also full steam ahead here with EasyJet, Ryanair, Buzz and Go. I use them because I know the deal - cheap ticket (in fact no ticket), no on board service, and no big customer relations dept. when it all goes tits up. Despite this, generally you can count on arriving safely and on time (I agree with you DeltaAgent)

If you don't like it, take a major (and a Platinum credit card)...

...Or may be start your own airline. Buy some old 707's, seat it out 2-2 all the way down the cabin, stick a bar in the back and get your lovely lady hostesses to call tea, coffee or milk... Hey presto, you've got the golden age of flying!!...and a bankrupt airline within 12 months.

I won't even argue most of the points you made as others have made them for me. As for the uniform comment, only OPNLGuy has mentioned it, and only as a part of his post.
I challenge you, no I beseech you to scan a picture and post it of a Southwest pilot wearing shorts. You can't do it, because ONE DOESN'T EXIST (while on the clock--plenty available at the beach).
I have jumped on WN at least 100+ times in the past seven years and have never found the crews to be anything other than professional and very capable. Don't know what you were looking at,,,maybe a F/A. The airline's safety is second to none.

Bottom line: You knew what WN was like before you bought the ticket. In the future, I suggest you look elsewhere as they aren't likely to change to suit your needs.
