I hope they hold the line and it inconveniences a chit load or important people, that way it’ll make a difference

Southwest stewardesses used to wear hot pants. Didn't hire ugly fat chicks. Some here remember.

He came and talked in one of my wife business classes while she was at UT, she said he burned heaters the entire time, this was in the early 2000's.

I flew to Albany, NY a couple weeks ago on AA and luckily didn't have any problems but I was definitely worried about cancellations and delays. Glad we didn't choose Southwest.

Getting stuck at an airport is so dang frustrating being completely out of control.

Used to think that way, but after a 7-hour flight to AK taking 49.5 hours on 3 airlines and AA losing the luggage for 3 weeks, I'm thinking Delta from now on.


My wife and I swore off American Airlines 7 years ago. Terrible customer service, terrible priced, broke down planes, late planes. They suck at life and I wish they would fail.

Frontier Airlines for the win.


AA goes everywhere we want to go, and usually goes there direct. That’s a big reason for us to use AA. The other reason is my wife flew on them 3-5 times a week for years, so she’s earned a lifetime status which is irreplaceable

Please support these guys if you able. There is a bill on the table to require a vaccine for all air travel.

this does not bode well for the stock market. SWA stock is sucking air right now. None of this is good for the country headed for another Great Depression.

Sounds a lot like what United did. You can get your exception, but we are going to put you on unpaid leave until we figure out what is going on with the virus and how we can bring you back to work. In other words, you're out of a job.


Thanks,

It was storming, heavy rain and lightning over Dallas tonight around 10pm, SWA planes were still flying into LUV, guess they forgot to cancel due to “weather”

I love companies that can’t be honest with their customers. Y’all keep praising them

If I never fly again - that is fine by me. They all have showed their [censored] the last two years.

I was asking a buddy about this yesterday and here's his reply. He's a pilot for a different airline, but is in the industry.

Quote
Meh it's not really as sensational as some folks are making it out to be. Yeah, we all have a vax mandate deadline coming up and yeah, people have an issue with that. That said - I asked a few guys I know who fly for SWA about this yesterday and they said it's a combo of about 5 things happening simultaneously but most of all just running a completely full schedule way understaffed. Same way pretty much every airline is running this Fall (us included) but apparently over there they just got tired of it and decided to stop working overtime and to use some of their sick time in somewhat of a coordinated manner. The ole "overworked and underpaid" thing and I guess it's getting to a breaking point over there.

Wifeypoo lifted off on time this AM. Be extra careful if you find yourself in the HEB area.

AA canceled my flight to Boston Monday morning. Got up at 3:30am, drove to Austin, and was standing in line for the TSA check point at 5:15 and my phone ding dinged saying my flight was canceled. bang I could have still been sleeping.

I have several classmates flying for SWA and they are saying the same as well. It may not have come down from the union directly, but make no mistake it was coordinated.

I get the sense it is a very tongue-in-cheek Steve Urkel, "Oops, did I do that?" kind of moment between line and management. The media (social and mainstream) is making it solely into a vax issue and small minds are buying into that one story line. There have been multiple issues brewing under the surface at the airlines that are coming to a head at SWA. The pilots flexed and got it to this point.

LUV stock was up a little today. They split awhile back.

Why would they? They are not employed by the hospital.

It is not about safety or health. It is about control.
