After enjoying flying Southwest almost exclusively (OK, so when we went to Vienna I had to use one of the other guys) for several years, AND having retired three years ago and now doing a LOT of traveling, I think I have come up with a brilliant idea. I would LUV for SW to offer a Lifetime Fly Pass. I'm sure with actuarial tables you could crunch the numbers effectively, but I would be the first to purchase one for say $3,000 and be able to fly SW for the rest of my life (I am 60). You already offer seniors a fixed rate so this is the next logical step. LFPers would also be able to pre-board, be able to book on line and would get some classy luggage tags that say SW LUVS Lifetime Flyers. This is just another great innovation no other airline will have the foresight or chuzpah to offer. You know you LUV it...come on! Lifetime Flyer Pass. I want #1. Teresa

We LUV SW and could tell you many great experiences we have had. The idea of getting a bottle of water (free or purchased for a buck) is a terrific one. When we flew interisland flights in Hawaii (not on SW), they offer you a small foil-sealed juice cup as you board, or a small bottle of water. I think this would be an ideal routine for the short hop SW flights like the ones we often take from Buffalo to Baltimore and Baltimore to Norfolk. The FA barely have time to provide service to the whole plane especially if we have a little rough weather. We are accustomed to picking up our own head sets, we could easily pick up a juice cup pr water bottle and a bag of snacks. Just a thought! Keep up the fantastic job of getting us from here to there.
