If you’ve read the blog lately, you might know me from my starring role in “The Battle of the Ashley’s,”so you know I’m a Longhorn fan. Well, this past Saturday night was a nerve-wracking, nail-biting game for me. But we pulled through, and we’re headed back to the Rose Bowl to face the #1 team: University of Alabama Crimson Tide.
Southwest Airlines is excited about the game as well. We’ve added extra sections (or flights) to accommodate the demand from Customers. We’re adding Flight #109 on Wednesday, Jan. 6, departing Birmingham (BHM) at 10:55 am and arriving at Los Angeles (LAX) at 1:40 pm. The return flight will be Flight #132 on Friday, Jan. 8, departing LAX at 11:35am and arriving in BHM at 5:35 pm. For the Longhorns, we’re adding Flight #113 on Jan. 6, departing Austin (AUS) at 11:40 am and arriving in LAX at 1:05 pm. The return flight will be Flight #121 on Jan. 8, departing LAX at 10:50 am and arriving in AUS at 3:45 pm. Looks like there will be a flood of burnt orange and crimson mixing at the baggage claim at LAX on Wednesday afternoon. If you’re interested in heading to Pasadena to support your team, you can find these flights as well as other options atsouthwest.com.
Now, if your loyalties lie with another team and you need flights to a different bowl game, don’t fret! We’ll be adding additional itineraries to give Customers more options when traveling to cheer on their team.
I wish every team the best of luck! Well, maybe not every team…. Hook ’em!
