I am horrified by this. I have flown SWA exclusively since 1998. Now they are allowing pets on board an already cramped and sometimes smelly plane. Do the people that make these rules actually fly on SWA flights? Do they realize that even the smell of a stinky passenger quickly goes through much of the plane?
I have mild allergies to cats/dogs but it's bad enough that I will be sneezing and have a runny nose for the rest of the day! How can I now be able to get peanuts on board your planes, but no one cares if someone has allergies to pets? This allergy is much more common than peanuts!
I am encouraging everyone to write letters to the executive of SWA to express our disgust. I am writing a letter right now. I am also looking into other airlines....

I fly Southwest religiously! I'm flying you guys tomorrow actually! R/T from ISP to MCO, then again in May, Oct, and Nov! (May will be a free R/T thanks to the awesome Rapid Rewards!)
I don't really think that we need to get food service that is above and beyond the snack packs or the simple bags of peanuts or crackers. I think everyone that typically flies SWA would mostly agree.. I, as well as many people I see getting on various flights, pick up something in the airport and head to my plane. I get what food I want, it's either hot or cold, however I want it.
SWA is known for being simple. Don't complicate things.... Food means extra costs for all passengers, I don't think adding the food service will make someone switch to SWA, I think it may eliminate some passengers due to increased costs. Since I love SWA, I fly with you guys even if you are a few bucks more expensive than JetBlue (I've only seen this 2 times!) But increased prices may bring people to reconsider JetBlue, especially considering the amenities in their aircrafts.
Then you always have more complaints when you provide more services. You say your selling food, but then people complain because that's what people do.... Maybe you might run out of something....COMPLAINT! Maybe your equipment isn't functioning correctly....COMPLAINT! and many more!!
Keep SWA the way it is!
