I think WN
takes pride in its excellence that comes at a low cost. Of course we all want ptv's and ch.9 but further more we want to get there w/ both us and our wallet's in one peace. I have been on many WN
flights and they do a good job at keeping it between a good time and that sketchy airline feeling.
Timing however is not one of their big things when wanting to act goofy, when people grab the 5pm to OAK
they just want to get home and not have jokes and sometimes this open happiness is not welcome. But when it comes down to the basics they do great in service and entertainment.
I too have been on WN
flights where the f/a will do the usual briefing and serving drinks and don't even bother w/ the intercom and games. I think no matter what WN
has it made in both price and service because they are aimed towards the cost efficient passenger.
And they do set this example for themselves and this is what they have come to be known as (the goofy airline with games and laughing at a very low cost) so I get tired of those who post how they were totally taken by surprise by the crews actions, you and everyone knows that they should expect this and sometimes will and sometimes wont.
But you have to think too that they aren't doing this b/c they are in control of the a/c and are the only one's who can open the door but are just trying to rid of the boringness. A 737 can only hold so much built up stress, and the crews do a good job to rid of some of it!
