We’ve met hundreds of incredible people, traveled on some amazing adventures, and shared many heartfelt memories over the past seven years thanks to THIS very blog. As 2014 quickly approaches, let’s take a moment to reminisce about the most memorable Nuts About Southwest blog posts of 2013. 1)  A Wish Trip for Dex

Many of you may remember Dex, the little boy whose Make-A-Wish trip became a reality with the help of Southwest Airlines. In fact, more than 16,000 people were drawn to his journey, making his story the most popular Nuts About Southwest blog post in 2013.
  2) An Act of Kindness
Cynthia Moynihan, a hearing impaired passenger, was so touched by the helpfulness of a Southwest employee during her time of need, she wrote to us through LUV Letters.  An Act of Kindness was posted on the blog in May 2013, and the response was overwhelming. Cynthia’s story is one of the top five most viewed Nuts blog posts this year, and it has been shared more than 2,000 times in social media.

And often, it’s a new process or important industry changes that draw interest, as can be seen by thousands of blog readers who found the Worth The Wait story worthy of their time, because after all, who doesn’t want to leave their personal electronic device on below 10,000 feet?
In all, more than 635,000 people have viewed the Nuts About Southwest blog so far this year, and the numbers don’t lie. When words and pictures come to life to tell an emotional story, people will want to read it, share it, and comment. Nuts About Southwest is more than a blog. It’s a window into our company soul. It’s the emotional stories of our employees, our passengers, OUR people. We hope you like what you see, and more importantly, enjoy what you read. There is more to come in 2014…
