Since the early '80's I have been traveling Southwest and singing its praises to friends and family. Some have grown tired of me repeating the jokes I have heard aboard. But now, even the snootiest first class types have succumbed and agree the service can't be beat. In recent years I have needed a wheelchair lift from curb to boarding. Always treated with kindness and consideration. Example: when leaving RDU recently 7 or 8 chairs were lined up (one of us seated ones said we looked like a moving nursing home!) Took a bit to get us moving down to the plane...guess who came to get me and take me aboard?...none other than the pilot! Now, that is service top to bottom. Many thanks and do keep ABC.
