"In order to save on fuel costs we'll need to sit here during the flight and spin the fan blades around as quickly as possible".

Them USC Trojans sure have a great football team. They'll probably win another championship next season. Especially since they recruited the best running back in the country. (Joe Mcknight) I wonder if he is going to be on this flight? 8) Trojan Blog Boy

You stopped the engine with your fingertips. Very good, Grasshopper. But remember, when you lift the 85 pound bag...use your legs, not your back.

PHX new hire Rampers: "are you sure we'll be able to cool off a little when the fan turns on" Or... Ramp or MX orientation "Okay all you have to do to test this is blow in here and when it starts spinning like a pin wheel we will know it's working. Now don't worry if it takes awhile, sometimes it takes time. Just keep at it and I'll be back later to check on you." Or... I can't wait to see the pilots expression when the giant bubble gets blown up out of this. Now give me a little more soap.

This dohickey connects to that thingabob whicht pulls on that kajigger. That's what makes this thing fly. The most dangerous parts of this plane are the NUTS in the cockpit.

See Janet! I told you if you were really quiet you could hear the hamsters running in their wheels.

I would like to THANK Southwest for a truly "GREAT" travel experience from Jacksonville to Philly and back. I was very impressed. I had stopped flying because I no longer enjoyed it. Southwest changed my mind.! THANK YOU FOR A GREAT FLIGHT! Sharon Munozx

I think Fletch said it best: "It's all ball bearings nowadays. Now you prepare that Fetzer valve with some 3-in-1 oil and some gauze pads, and I'm gonna need 'bout ten quarts of anti-freeze, preferably Prestone. No, no make that Quaker State."

Today, I tried to get my boarding pass online and for the 2nd consecutive time I was denied. Last time when I got to the airport,I was put through the same check-in procedure as everyone else, so nothing was accomplished but a lot of inconvenience. If I thought that security was served, I would have no problem with this procedure, but nothing other than inconveniencing a customer was accomplished. I don't know why Southwest doesn't assign seats like everyone else.

Phillip, What was the exact message you received? There a few reasons that could prevent you from getting a boarding pass online: 1: Should you check in online and get to the next screen and it says "Airport Check in required" in RED, then that's either a random TSA security check OR your name might match a name on the watch list. There is nothing Southwest can do about that when it comes to TSA. We don't go out of our way to deliberatley try to inconvinience customers of ours. That wouldn't make much sense, would it? 2: If it says your reservation is currently being processed, then usually the airport made a change to the reservation such as a later flight or flying standby on an earlier flight. Any changes the airport does WILL result in that error message. When that happens, a simple call to reservations before midnight Central time or after 2AM Central can fix that. As soon as we fix it, then it's available to print. 3: If there is an age sensitive fare and the passenger is not age verified through their Rapid Rewards account, then they need to show proof of age at the ticket counter to receive that rate (IE. military, senior, child, infant, youth). Especially the senior fare for passengers over 65 because it's usually a substantial savings. Hope that explains a few things. Jedi Blog Master

I just wanted to let everyone know that we did check on Phillip's reservation and the problem was that he wasn't age-verified for the Senior Fare. We conntacted him and are working on his verification. Blog Boy
