Southwest Comments on Flight 879

Frequent Flyer C
You may have seen headlines regarding the actions of some of our Customers and Crew Members on a recent Southwest flight.  On Monday, August 16, a family dispute occurred on Flight 879 from Dallas to Albuquerque. Our Flight Attendant came to the aid of a couple onboard the flight who were involved in a verbal dispute. That couple had a small child who was upset, so our Flight Attendant offered to hold the child. Out of an abundance of caution, our Crew asked the authorities to meet the flight and talk with the family. The couple was cleared to take a later flight to their final destination. The safety and wellbeing of our Customers and Employees is our highest priority. Our Flight Attendants do their very best to maintain a comfortable environment onboard every Southwest Airlines flight.
