We always fly Southwest when possible. They had a very good reputation among the military pilots
The assumption was, for various reasons, among them, that SW had many ex military fliers, that if somethingvwent wrong they could handle it better than anyone
Their record stands for itself
I dont think they were yet a corp when Rainman was frantically looking for a safe ride
Looks like the gear failed during taxi
As good as this?
Seriously, any landing you can walk away from....
We agree wholeheartedly. We fly LUV (Soutwest) whenever we can.
We were returning to Albuquerque on American one time several years ago and the front landing gear dropped into a pot hole while we taxing to the gate. Whooops. We had to wait for one of the tractors come out to get us as the plane could not push us out of the hole. Funny to talk about it now.
I can imagine the feelings of the passengers if the whole front end drops down as it did at LGA.
