Booking a Flight

I am considering booking my first flight with Southwest; however, after reading the issues with the mechanics saying they are being forced to get planes back in service quicker, I am undecided.  I don't want my family on a plane that has been rushed through the maintenance process.  What is everyone's feelings on this?  Thank you.

IMO the airline is perfectly safe. The mechanics are saying things like that to sppeed up the contract negotiating process.

@AN90,

even though no one cannot guarantee your safety, I can say that I have been in the Southwest planes at least twice a week for many years, and I continue to feel that the company’s employees put safety first and I plan to be flying in the Southwest fleet for many years to come.  I believe the adage about “flying is safer than driving.”

 

Fun and safe travels to you, however you decide to go.
