SWA Meteorology: Thanks, Canada!

By:

It was just two weeks ago we were experiencing the “return of the Polar Vortex” in the middle of summer, a highly unusual occurrence, or so we thought.  Now another round of welcome cool air is bringing much needed relief for the eastern half of the nation.  Is it another Polar Vortex?  Nah, this time, it’s cool air from Canada. Listen to a forecast on TV or read a... read more

Gate Games are just ‘Plane’ Fun

By:

Like any time-contentious traveler, I have at least an hour of downtime before my flight begins boarding.  When I’m traveling with my family, waiting time seems to go by even more slowly.  On my last vacation with my family, we had a two hour layover.  Normally we play a card game, but unfortunately, we (cough, cough—my dad) had forgotten to bring a deck of cards. ... read more

National Picnic Month: Southwest’s Top Ten Picnic Destinations

By:

I like to picnic every chance I get—which mostly depends on the Texas weather.  If it’s not raining or at 150 percent humidity level, a few Fellow Interns and I take our lunch breaks on the Headquarters’ “deck” for some good ole’ plane watching and sunshine.  And, we’re not the only ones!  Southwest is extremely familiar with picnicking, as it incorporates two... read more

Happy Independence Day—Home of the Red, White, and Canyon Blue!

By:

Every Independence Day I can remember has been the same:  My family goes to my grandma’s house; we toss the younger cousins around in the pool; we eat too much BBQ and then, drive over to the stadium to grab a good spot for the fireworks show. Some may call those activities boring in their predictability, but to me they’re perfect.  I get to celebrate the country I love... read more
