FEES DON'T FLY ON SOUTHWEST
that's what grabbed my attention to click on their ad on a web page i was visiting.
after connecting to the southwest airlines ticket site and punching in destinations and dates, the rest of my day was spent singing : " all you need is luv ~~~~luv is all you need "
the trip involved an unaccompanied minor traveling to visit grandparents this summer.
now for you who don't have to deal with this type of ticket--getting a ticket for these cute little kids requires a lot of patience and tons of money. you may not ticket online. there is a fee to call for a ticket. there is a $100 each way fee for the ticket of the child. there is no way the child can fly on any flight that connects.
cha- ching cha- ching now add in the fee for the little one's bag ( one month stay at gramma's--it;s not really an overnight with just a few shirts ). gramma does have a washing machine, however , is it really fair that she only have a few shirts to work with that have been stuffed into a backpack ? he really is not going with any more than 1 bag ( a check in ), BUT feel the luv here at southwest as i tell you how easy it was to ticket him.
1: go online 2: punch in travel dates and find flights that may have a stop AS long as it doesn't change to a different plane it's considered ok for the little one to travel 3: pay for ticket at the adult fare 4: print itinerary 5: call southwest and tell them it's really a minor child not an adult 6: they check that you were smart enough to figure 1 stop without a new flight # meant southwest just dropped off folks and picked up folks somewhere along the way and the child just stayed on the plane the whole time til the end. almost like nonstop.
NO EXTRA FEES !!!!! really - no extra fees. they mean it.
i remember saying to the agent that answered my phone call WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF SOUTHWEST FIRST ???? an airline that really likes to fly people around. really. she chuckled and said thank you and everyone should feel the luv.
the ticket on another airline ( the only one with a nonstop) would have been more than double the cost on southwest. a higher ticket price because i couldn't book online and then the FEES.
an add that is truthful --southwest add above -- no fine print to make you feel duped at clicking the add and finding 5 pages of disclaimers that make the add shameful.
all you need is southwest ~~ luv is all you need.
