I was flying Midway(JI) from RDU to PHL and we were put on a Carnival 727.
They handed out notes saying that due to the A-320s not getting certification as quickly as planned, they were having to lease aircraft for different flights.
They also gave out flight credits for any inconvenience.
You are now free to be sexually harassed and then terminated for filing a complaint--Southwest Airlines to me.

I remember a long time ago going through the check-in gate in Aruba (before they had jetways) for my AIR ARUBA flight back to EWR. When I got on the tarmac, I could't find our plane! I walked all the way back to the gate to be told to get on a KIWI bird they had leased. I guess they were both on the endangered list, because they are both extinct today!
