RE: Fox News Vittert Courageously Boards Lynx Flt ;-)

I was wondering where Leland ran off too. He used to over-report the news in Orlando.

RE: WN's New Boarding Process

I am very excited to try out the new boarding process over Christmas. I'm a little concerned about being shafted on the 24 hour check-in rule though. I'm the conceirge for a resort in Orlando, and I check in guests quite often for Southwest flights. I sat at the computer and clicked "check in" for a...

RE: Southwest To Add Wireless To 4 Planes

Alex, thanks for posting the pic of the remodeled gate area. If the gate area has the room for it, it looks great. Seems like smaller cities like <acronym title="Louisville - Standiford Field International (SDF / KSDF), USA - Kentucky">SDF</acronym> might have problems with the design. Cheers! Drew

Airlines You Will Never Fly?

After several of my friends had their vacation to see me in Orlando ruined over Valentine's Day, I think I'll shy away from Jetblue for my Florida - New York travels. Obviously the weather wasn't their fault, but the handling of the situation still leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

I just wonder how this did not end up on the news. The Cessna 310 that circled and landed gear-up in Tampa gained national news coverage. Was the time span too quick between the report of the emergency and the landing?
