While sitting on a recent Southwest Airlines flight, I got to talking with a kind man next to me—we talked about what we did for a living and I mentioned how passionate I am about teaching. He then asked me what the greatest challenge was that I’ve ever faced in my career. I was honest, and told him that working at a low income school can be heartbreaking—then, something amazing happened.

As of August 1, Southwest Airlines will no longer serve peanuts onboard and will instead serve pretzels on all flights.

Shortly after turning 50, I wanted to do something fun for my 50s. I wanted to travel, I wanted to write, I wanted to meet new people … and I wanted to barefoot water ski.

 

Out of all those passions, a quest was born. I wanted to barefoot water ski in all 50 states! I was going to give myself a full 10 years to complete the quest and enjoy every aspect of it.

Ah, summertime. Three things are guaranteed each summer: one, HEAT! Two, full flights. And three, Network Planning publishes the January schedule. That happened this morning, extending our schedule out through March 6, 2019. Some interesting changes to our schedule always await as we move from the holiday season schedule into the heart of winter of the new year, and this one’s no exception. Let’s discuss!

Our fourth annual Southwest Summer Camp is underway, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome over 160 campers (who are dependents of Southwest Employees) to our Headquarters this week! Additionally, we are hosting a few students from GenHERation and a few students whose nationally-recognized science experiment was sent to space. Most of these campers aren’t of legal voting age yet, but they just might be future Southwest Employees. In fact, that’s kind of the point.

During this year’s spring companywide initiative, hundreds of Employees put their Hearts in Action and participated in more than 70 projects across the system.

 

To help us create impact and make this volunteer event a success, we teamed up with one of our sustainability partners, the Student Conservation Association (SCA) to bring conservation projects to cities across the country.

Whether you’ve been the parent or the innocent bystander, you’ve probably encountered a child at some point during your airline travels. Oftentimes, traveling children can become impatient, frustrated, or confused during the travel process. The trick to traveling with children is to bring food, entertainment, and mostly luck, because let’s face it—children are unpredictable.

At Southwest Airlines, we love to inspire future generations to succeed, and one of the many ways we do that is through our Adopt-A-Pilot program. Since 1997, our Pilots have dedicated their own time to help students define, articulate, and plan for future success; all while enjoying fun-filled lessons! But for these father-son duos, this program has become more than fun—it’s become a family legacy.

My daughter’s high school robotics team competed at the World Championship in Houston recently, and they specifically chose to leave competition early so they would be home in time to celebrate their Senior Prom. All was going according to plan and spirits were high until they learned that their flight had a five hour delay which would put them home mere minutes before prom was to begin. Would senior prom be ruined? Not a chance with Southwest!
