Luv is in the Air... and I am on it

“Sometimes the journey is just as important as the destination”

I thought since I have started to travel again, I should get my blog back to it’s Wanderlust roots. Ill probably write about travels in between my last post and now later, but for now, I want to focus on how I get where I go.

I used to travel a whole lot more. I have been on almost every airline, but there is one I had never tried: Southwest. I used them for the first time every this weekend. And, while I was not looking forward to the whole seating as you come situation, it was a cheap ticket.

Even though I was the last on the plane (doomed to sit in the worst middle seat ever), I ended up with an aisle seat.

The first thing the surprised me was peanuts. We got peanuts on this flight. I do not remember the last time I was on a flight that handed out peanuts. How neat.

Now, not only do airlines not give out peanuts anymore, most don’t give out any snacks (without charging that is). Southwest did not just give us peanuts, they gave us a box of snacks. It included cookies, dried fruit, and those sticks you can dip in cheese.

The pilots and flight attendants were also a nice addition to the flight. They danced up and down the aisle when there was turbulence.They made funny announcements and comments during the flight and even had a contest to win free alcoholic beverages.

I did not win.

But I will be taking Southwest more often.

Yay! You're blogging again!
I have also had good exeriences with Southwest airlines. However, they weren't as awesome as Jet Blue. I wish all airlines had that much leg room and personal tv screens. *sigh*
Anywho, enough about the airlines, let's hear about your travels!!
