They are allright doing what they do. They cater to the average joe on the steet. Why does everybody here think that every airline need to have its employees wearing Armani? The late Bob Reeve, famed bush pilot and founder of my last airline employer in the late 40's had a problem. His main competitor Alaska Airlines started to issue uniforms to it's pilots. His solutions put ads in the paper saying, "Fly Reeve Aleutian Airways. No Zoot Suit Characters here. Just Reliable Aleutian Bush Pilots". I think there is a lesson here.
The one thing to note about cleaning airplane interiors is that their route structure has a lot of point to point to point flights. It isn't a pure hub. Also their groundcrews are keyed to doing complete turn arounds in 10 minutes. This may be why the interiors are not as clean. Most other airlines have between twenty minutes and forty five minutes to make a turnaround. And the crews have a lot more chance to work without passengers on board. Southwest feels that it is more importanct to try to minize the ground time then to get everybody off the plane for a cleaning. This policy doesn't seem to have hurt their sales any, and everybody like to have minimal ground time at an intermediate stop. I haven't had that problem on SEA-GEG flights. Also the airline has a lot more personality then any of the major ZOOT SUIT outfits.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.
