Last week as I was flying United I was thinking about how much I enjoy flying Southwest. Ooohhh let me count the ways…
1) Free luggage (on united its 15$ for first bag and skyrockets up to $250 per bag very quickly)
2) Drinks are only 4$ (but you can get free drink tickets everywhere)
3) People actually like there job who work there. – Southwest has profit sharing and takes care of their employees.
4) Same leg room as economy+ on united which ads 45$ PER WAY to your trip.
So no bs checked bag charge, no overcharging on drinks, no upsells on seats. I can dig it. In my case I have to drive over 60 miles to catch a southwest flight and its totally worth it.
I talked to the people staffing the Southwest Airlines booth at blogworld:
