I recently found the show "Airline" and have become addicted to it. We recently took a Southwest flight to Phoenix and I was talking to the flight attendants and she said the show actually aired a couple years ago. This is really a great show and I would love to see it come back.
I tend to fly Southwest when I can because of the character of the flight attendants. I'm not really fond of flying and they make it tolerable. A couple years ago we had a flight attendant tell us the smoking section was out on the wing - it's comments like that that really separate Southwest from the other airlines.
My only concern with Southwest is that you are still serving peanuts as a snack. With the rise of peanut allergies, (me included, but I can be on the plane with them, just not ingest any) I thought Southwest would have been one of the first airlines to ban peanuts for the safety. I did see a "Airline" show where a woman notified Southwest ahead of time of her childs severe allergy and the entire Southwest staff jumped in to help remove any peanut wrappers, dust, actual peanuts from the area where they would be sitting. I thought that was great but what wouldn't it be easier to eliminate peanuts all together? So many children are becoming allergic to peanuts and it's frightening to have an allergic reaction like that.
