For many of the communities Southwest Airlines serves, 2017 was a challenging year. Several places we love were impacted by natural disasters—one of the areas most impacted was Tapachula, Chiapas. People living in this area supply some of the coffee beans utilized by Community Coffee Company, our onboard partner that provides our inflight coffee. At Southwest, disaster preparedness and response is one of the core pillars of our community outreach efforts, and we are honored to play a role as the people of Tapachula rebuild.

One of the things I enjoy about my career at Southwest Airlines is endless opportunities for learning and growth. I am proud to be a participant in one of these transformative opportunities, the Manager in Training Program (MIT), a dynamic learning experience for top-performing Managers, Supervisors, and Team Leaders. I’ve enjoyed every aspect of the program, but the Servant’s Heart project is something I’m especially proud to have been a part of.

We introduced our EarlyBird product in 2009, and we’ve seen the popularity of the product increase with our Customers every year. With EarlyBird, we’ll automatically check you in and assign your boarding position within 36 hours of your flight’s departure—12 hours before general boarding positions become available.

 

Until now, the price for EarlyBird has been a flat rate for all routes—starting at $10 in 2009, and is currently $15. Beginning August 29, we are moving to a variable pricing structure with three price points: $15, $20, and $25. Read more for additional details on the changes to our EarlyBird pricing model.

When our founder launched FlightAware in 2005, he wanted to provide a tool for fellow pilots and AV geeks to track live flights (at the time, there was no publicly available way of doing so). I don’t think he ever guessed 12 years later, we would be tracking sharks on our maps—but that’s exactly what happened when we partnered with Southwest Airlines to help promote Shark Week!

During our short weekend stay, we were able to cover a lot of ground both in and around the city and discover some of the most scenic areas in California. Read more for my list of top five places to check out the next time you make it to this special part of the golden coast.

As a California native, my passion for the ocean started at a young age—in fact, just two months after I was born my father sat me on a surfboard for the first time. Ever since then, I have been hooked on surfing and working to preserve our oceans. I’m passionate about helping all the creatures in the ocean, which is why participating in Southwest Airlines’ Shark Week flight was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
