I love flying on Southwest. But I must admit, when this story broke I was in the middle of a trip from California to Florida and I was pretty nervous. I have never had a problem with flying but this was a long flight for me because of the worry I had about the plane's safety.
I hate to admit it, but I am strongly considering canceling a second trip to Florida using Southwest. I have no problem putting my on neck on the line, but this time my daughter will be flying with me and I'm not so sure it is worth saving a few bucks.
Southwest is going to have to get a clean bill of health from the experts before I will feel at ease about flying SWA. In a way I feel that the trust I had in SWA of being a top notch airline has been lost. How could Southwest allow this to happen. I certainly don't know enough about cracks in the fuselage and maintenance records but SWA will have to prove to me that those planes are safe.
