This show is the bomb!

But I am worried some of the public who do not understand the problems these people go through will use this in a negative way against Southwest and other featured airlines.

How stupid was that lady??? She arrives at MDW 20 mins. before departure, missed her flight to SAN and DEMANDS an assigned seat immediately...

Guess she forgot; Southwest doesn't have assigned seats  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Thanks for reminder. Missed it last week, came on in the evening after flying MSP- Las Vegas for the CES show-Frontier 319 to DIA and Frontier 733 to LAS and returning 733/319. Got to LAS went to Hotel and found out hotel did not offer AE!

Gotta second the thanks for the reminder. I was going to watch Insomiac (a good show too) instead.

Pretty good episode too. I enjoyed the perspective of the chaperones in the BMX incident.

That Sharon woman's annoying me. You arrived late to the airport, so, yes, it's your own damn fault. If you don't wanna pay $3,000 bucks to get out of there, then you should've gotten there on time. Tch'.

I almost jumped in joy as I found out that that lady couldn't get on yet ANOTHER flight. You can see her cursing as she is furiously rushing around the terminal. I think this series is a great eye-opener; it really gives the general public an idea about the crap that these airline employees have to go through every day.

One time actually I arrived at Detroit Metro at 5:05 AM for a 5:35 AM departure to ATL on Delta and made it on the aircraft at 5:19 AM...I was the last one on and the plane pushed back at 5:24 AM, 11 mins. early... but that was very stupid of me and when the people at the check in counter told me i was cutting it really close, I wasn't gonna argue with them. But when they discovered I had no checked bags they thought it wasn't that bad after all cause there was no one at security.

Remember last week they had the same situation with the child looking older than 2? That couple was completely unco-operative and unfriendly. These people, although a bit upset (which is expected) they are still treating the agents with dignity and respect.

What is with this episode and showing all the trailer park trash that flies on Southwest Airlines? Good lord. That one lady that was on the flight with the unruly passengers is just in it for a free ticket. Yes, what you experienced may have been scary, but Southwest Airlines had no idea these passengers would behave this way. This means that they are not at fault and they should not have to compensate them for anything.

That crack addicted trailer park trash woman who is stuck in Chicago is absolutely ridiculous. What a hick. I honestly have never seen a grown woman behave in such a way. Screaming across the terminal "comon guys, lets go!"

Oh well. A day in the life...

to chime in:

the BMX issue is incredibly bad... every possible thing that should be done for these passengers (the bad and good ones) should be implemented

the kid by himself is nice... good to see a good story on the show

the family without the proof of ID.... no, its unacceptable!

and the one who did not get picked up under supervision....also unacceptable

GET THERE 2 HOURS BEFORE YOUR FLIGHT SHARON!

the next one seems great, i'll chime in at 11pm

I love how people blame the airline- when they are late getting to the airport, comedy indeed. I'm flying Southwest tomorrow, and there better not be any BMX bandits onboard. I didn't even know they had BMX 'tournaments' anymore ala. 1986.....

Well I am an Air Force Officer, my cousin is a congressman, and I travel with a gun many times(as the guy said....). The process is not that difficult. You declare the weapon in your checked bag, fill out the paperwork, and let them inspect the weapon. The guy should know that if he travels with a weapon allot. Sad.

Seems like Coleen is a Customer Service Manager.....it seems there are quite a few at MDW however as it is one of Southwest's busier stations...

I'm kinda agreeing with the people stranded 25 hours...that really sucks that they have to foot the expense of the hotel room themselves...especially considering that they had to ride a 4 and a half or 5 hour bus ride just to get to MDW...and paid for air travel...

All in all though, I think this show gives a wonderful perspective... what these employees go through everyday, and it also gives motivation to those of us who are nice to those same employees; they are more likely to do you a favor if you are nice...and even if they can't upgrade you or change your flight with no change fee, they'll be very happy that you treated them in a fair manner, since there certainly are travelers who do not.

The shotgun guy? If he isn't compliant with whatever they want to look at I would assume yes they can deny him boarding. But in all reality he was uncompliant, he was just ignorant, inconsiderate, and just a miserable person.

Was tonight not the first episode? I looked but I didn't see it last week if it premiered last week.

Sure shows what the employees have to put up with. Thank goodness the show's about Southwest and not one of the more staid majors.
