SWA Customer Story: LUV is in the Air

Explorer B
We were so happy to learn that Southwest Airlines played a role in Customer Ethan Ganot’s recent engagement. The special day took the couple across the country to the cities that mean the most to them, ending in Philadelphia where he popped the question! Congratulations to the happy couple! IMG_3023I live in San Diego and my girlfriend lives in St. Louis. On the weekend of her 29th birthday, I flew to St. Louis, having previously told her not to make any plans. The night I arrived, I told her to pack an overnight bag because the next day we'd be taking a trip. I didn't tell her where or how, just some attire guidelines. The next morning, we woke up early and I surprised her by directing us to the airport, where we boarded a Southwest flight to Chicago, where I used to live. In Chicago we had brunch at one of our favorite spots, after which I surprised her again by steering us back to the airport, where we got on another Southwest flight to Philadelphia, where she used to live. In Philadelphia we had a great dinner and then stopped at a restaurant in her old neighborhood for our favorite dessert.  When the dessert arrived, I took out the engagement ring I'd been carrying the entire time and I asked her to marry me. She said yes; it was an amazing day! I couldn’t have done it without Southwest, so I wanted to say thank you!
