I want to know how you choose who is featured in your SWA Magazine Frequent Flyer stories? You always seem to pick guys. 😞 There are a few of us executive women out there that deserve a feature now and then! I have had various flight attendants that recognize me on my many journeys say that I would be a great pick for the inflight magazine but no one seems to know how they find that person. My 12 yr old son and I live in Sacramento, My husband and stepdaughter live in Phoenix, and we have a Vacation Home in Tahoe. I am the National Manager for a 6th generation smaller but well known winery and all of our staff and regional managers usually only fly SWA. We ALL carry Southwest airlines Visa cards ( I am sad that I do not get the flight credits for the money spent, wish you would change that) So you see there are women executives out there " roaming about the country" too! I use SWA as much as I drive my car. I made the desision to remain in Sacramento due to my job, ONLY because SWA has made it so easy for me to "Commute " home to see my husband once in a while, 😉 and not have to give up any custody of my son.....We are all one big happy extended family thanks to SWA, Thanks!

Wow, where do I start? First I had to pick myself up off the floor when I heard that there was the Possibility of assigned seating. Please I beg you NO NO NO!! Heres my dilemma, I live in Sacramento, my husband lives in Phoenix, we have a vacation home in Tahoe, we both have 2 kids that one is on a companion pass ( More on that issue later!!) I have to be able to travel at a moments notice. I also work as a National Manager for a Winery and have to "Be free to move about the country". If you assign seats then the people who know the system ( Getting A tickets online) will get all jumbled in with the flyers who rarely fly. I consider the way that we get our tickets 24 hours in advance online "First Class Seating" We who fly often EARNED this way of flying! We put in our time in the beginning, why take away something that we have made work for us? We ARE your First Class Customers! ( Ok maybe we are just smarter then the ones who are infrequent flyers, since they do not know the ropes yet)
I do everything that I can to fly Southwest air first, in fact the only blip in my travels have been trying to get to Dallas Love Field, well now you made that wish come true.... although I think that I singlehandley sent in 5 million requests for SWA to fly to that destination! :-)
I have been stuck on other ... ok Delta....with that horrible Zone boarding thing and to tell you the truth it always seemed to take longer then boarding on SWA. So Pleeeeeeese Pretttttty Pleassssse do not change my wonderful routine of booking last minute air to see my husband and kids! Pleasssse leave us alone and keep yourselves head of the herd in on time departures, oh wait a minute did I say herd? Herd of Cows? You know how some whiners claim its like a herd of Cows? Well then MOOOOOOOOOOOO! I am happy to be the A ticket Head of the Herd! Keep up the great work SWA, we Love ya! ( PS How do you get featured in the SWA magazine for being such a major flyer on SWA, especially with my crazy story of how and why I try to ONLY travel on SWA? Our Winery ONLY uses SWA when we can and we all carry the SWA Visa!) Hint Hint I am a presentable cute female, Seems like its always guys in those stories!
