Love Southwest Airlines, new planes, sounds cool but a recent round trip flight from Philadelphia to Fort Myers was far from cool.
New 800 arrives late to Philadelphia because they are new, delaying the fight. Sat on the Plane waiting to have them figure out how to get the plane in trim since the flight wasn't full. Over an hour delay because of the new 800.
Returning flight was delayed, the flight from Baltimore arrived at 11:25 (scheduled for 11:10). Since we missed our spot (in the air) sat for an hour to board pushing back about 12:50 scheduled for 11:55. Another over an hour wait.
My feeling is hope I don't see another 800 until they fly them like the 700's
