Happens all the time here at WN though everyone still acts as if we're the crap of the skies.
Glad to see other carriers have such spirit and dedication!
I was in Chicago a few months ago during the transfer to the new pilot base, and while I was talking with a couple of the chiefs in the old base, we heard that an A/C was going to have a late push due to bags, so we went outside to help speed up the bag loading process so that the A/C could leave as quickly as possible. Not many airlines out there with CPs that are willing to throw bags.

Your not the crap of the skies but most of your pax are the crap of the skies.
I would say you've rarely been on one of our flights. A high percentage of our travelers are business travelers. Just because you make more money than somebody who could only afford a WN fare doesn't mean that you shouldn't benefit from low prices too. I don't know if you were aware, but at this point you get better free food (unlimited drinks and snacks, with larger snack packs on longer flights), better pitch than most US domestic economy classes, and certainly better service than most US airlines out there. While WN isn't always the cheapest fare out there, it's certainly extremely close and the product that you are getting is much more consistent than most of the other US airlines out there (most, not all).
It never ceases to amaze me how many people seem to think that because WN is inexpensive, it's the WalMart of the skies.
It also disappoints me that somebody would judge another person to be "Crap" just because they happened to choose a less expensive fare.
