1-Mikaela's Flight Cover.jpg

I always get a little nervous traveling with my five-year-old, autistic daughter, Mikaela. Every parent struggles, and a part of my struggle is my own anxiety, stemming from never knowing when and what may cause my child to have a breakdown. Luckily, on this flight, I learned I could count on Southwest to help alleviate those fears.

image1.jpegEmployees are the Heart of our business at Southwest. They help us connect People to what’s important in their lives through friendly, reliable, and low-cost air travel. We know from our 2017 fall campaign that behind every seat is a story, but there’s also a story behind every Employee across the system. SMF Ops Agent Jay Thomas and DEN First Officer Mike McGee are no exceptions.

It’s not a secret that here at Southwest Airlines, we are a Company that has always shown love, support, and admiration for our Military. When we discovered Olivia was seeking assistance with arranging roundtrip airfare for her father, a Vietnam Veteran, to travel to Florida to meet his grandchildren and great grandson—all of whom her father had never met before, we sprung into action.

Toddler Jeep.jpg

In California over the holidays, my toddler son received a power wheels Jeep as a gift from family. My mother thought we could easily return it to the store and have it reshipped to our home in Washington due to the large size, but that was sadly not the case.

 

As a last resort, we attempted to pack it up to ship as oversized baggage for our return trip home only to discover that wasn’t going to work. A wonderful Southwest Employee heard our dilemma and was determined to reunite us with my son’s holiday gift. In all honesty, I never expected to hear from him again...

After months and months of waiting, we got the call. The call telling us to travel immediately to Phoenix because the expectant mother of our soon-to-be-daughter was in labor. We knew we needed to get on the next plane and didn't even hesitate on which airline to call.

MCI.1jpg.jpgOne of many cards made by sweet kindergarteners.

To say that Southwest Airlines went above and beyond with their Customer Service and care is an understatement.  When I faced my worst fear as a police wife and not being in my home town everyone at Southwest Airlines—from start to finish—took me under their wing and treated me as one of their own family members.

As a WWII Navy Pilot, aviation is one of Mr. Richards’ many passions, but it is specifically the love he feels from my Southwest Cohearts that keeps Mr. Richards flying. Every Thursday, he goes to the Albuquerque Sheraton to meet and thank Southwest Crew Members staying there. When he travels, he has a special song he sings onboard about spreading love and happiness.

Earlier this month, we brought Mr. Richards to Southwest's Dallas Headquarters to express our appreciation with a VIP experience. Upon his departure in Albuquerque, the Station threw him a send-off party to commemorate his journey.

Aiden is quite possibly the biggest Southwest Airlines fan, and he is only three years old. When we asked him what he wanted for his birthday party, his reply was “A Southwest Airlines party!” So I called a few Southwest Airlines numbers and got in touch with a couple of Southwest Employees who took the time to make a little boy’s special day all the more memorable.
