Parade of Roses: An Engagement at Chicago Midway

Not applicable

Recently, we helped a Southwest Customer, Jason, propose to his girlfriend, Allison.  Jason handed out roses on the plane, and when arriving in Midway, each Passenger emerged from the jetbridge carrying a rose and a note.  A lot of work when into Jason's big proposal, and this is what he said about the process:

The idea for this proposal came from a conversation I had on a flight from Denver to Chicago a few years ago. The plane was pretty empty so the flight attendants sat with the 10 or so passengers and talked. I brought up the idea then and the crew member I was talking with mentioned Southwest would love to help. My family has also been friends with a father and son who both fly for Southwest, and at my brother's 30th birthday party I asked the son, Mike Van Rosendale, if he could help. He told me to send him an email with exactly what I wanted to do.

This proposal took a lot of planning, a lot of help and a lot of luck. I know that marriage and the rest of my life will depend on those things as well. I also think this is the BEST proposal ever (maybe I'm biased), but if you had the opportunity to get to know Allison she truly deserves it. She is wonderful and I am very excited to move forward together.

I am truly grateful for Southwest's help and there is no doubt who will will chose to fly for the rest of our lives.

Thank you, 

Jason

Great job Southwest! Stories like these that make me smile, and make me glad that I chose you guys as my dedicated airline. I would rather drive to a city you guys don't fly to, than fly another airline.
