The show from MDW
was pretty hilarious IMHO. I have had some funny flight attendants, but that group was great. I think they went a bit over the top 'cause of the cameras on board, but still showed Southwest attitude & spirit.
Bear in mind these couple of things. The show depicts problems that happen and how far WN
employees go out of there way to help there customers. Take the guy in LAX
who was denied boarding because he "smelled bad." That lady went way over the top to help him out and get him flying.. and that is the Southwest Spirit. Period.
If you want to know how I feel about WN
and my personal experiences, do a search under my name... I'm new here so there won't be too many to go through.
Nycfuturepilot, why did this make you not want to fly WN
. Bear in mind, that what you saw was a bunch of problems packed into 40mins of air time. What you didn't see was the 114 flights that left LAX
that day, or the 134 that left MDW
(or would have if it wasn't for that bad ass rain storm).
And those flights on a normal day would have been mostly on time, with few boarding mishaps, and everyone getting their baggage, and getting where they wanted to go.
I watch WN
whenever I fly them, and am still amazed at what they do.
