Have nay of you taken Southwest Airlines from the US West Coast to Hawaii and if so how was it?
They are all pretty much the same.
That’s two questions
You get on the plane.
You sit in a seat.
The plane takes off.
The plane arrives in Hawaii.
You get off.
Yes nay of us have.
Other than that, pretty good - never got sucked out of a window at 20,000 ft, but did happen once a few years ago.
They all suck but I found Jet Blue sucks less
“They are all pretty much the same” is pretty accurate.
They’re nice folks, no first class, and a relatively pleasant flight.
It’s like flying in a bus with gay guys giving you tiny bags of peanuts..
The advantage of SWA is, if you need to change flight after booking, you get the WHOLE price of the ticket back to use as a voucher for another flight at a later date.
As long as you cancel your flight at least 10 minutes before departure.
You left out a few things after “plane takes off” and “plane arrives in Hawaii.”
1. You are stuck in a middle seat in a full plane.
2. 450 pound passenger sits next to you and spills into your seat. You only get 1/2 of the seat you paid for.
3. Kid behind you kicks your seat for a couple of hours.
4. Teenager to your left plays his earbuds at hearing-destroying levels and you hear “boom-psst-bang-pfffft-zzzssst” for several hours.
5. Baby in front of you cries incessantly from ear discomfort. Mom doesn’t know how to get baby to drink and pop his or her ears.
6. You forgot to bring any food and the Southwest peanuts aren’t satisfying your food craving.
And no baggage fees for first 2 checked bags.
Is this just your way of shoving this into the faces of the weather impaired people suffering from snow shoveling bad backs,delayed flights and bored homebound kids?? Oh sure..take your flight to HAWAII. Sit in the sun drinking mai tais and watching the most beautiful sunsets in the world while SOME of us eat canned chili and pray for the snow to let up. Put a top hat and a carrot nose on your snowman. Don’t forget his tropical shirt. Just know this: We will KNOW who you are. You’ll be the one with a great suntan....ah-CHOO...
lol! Have fun!
And you can sometimes strategically pick a good seat (take the aisle seat next to the enormous guy in the window seat) ; not often someone will try and sit between you. Though I did get stuck sitting next to two Sumo wrestler types once, employing that strategy - very uncomfortable coast to coast flight.
Which island are you going to?
Hey have fun man :)
I had a bad flight to Japan on United like that. All the video displays went down, so we had a 14 hr flight with nothing to do.
Our of Epply Omaha?
I hope I never have to sit next to you.
