In the US, at least.
If you’ve ever flown Southwest, you know their flight attendants have fun keeping bored airline passengers on the edge of their seats. Instead of the mundane, “In case of an emergency adjust your mask, then help your children,” a Southwest attendant might say …
“In case of an emergency, adjust your mask then help your child. If you have more than one child, choose your favorite and work from there.”
Or you might be greeted with, “Aloha. Welcome aboard Flight 123 en route to Maui. Oh, you aren’t going to Maui? Ok, then. We’ll go to Nashville.”
Long ago Southwest put the fun in flying and with the tightfisted tendencies we’ve seen lately, they remain a beckon of light in the dark unfriendly skies.
That’s why I’d like to put a little ring in your Love Thursday and tell you about the Southwest Ding that sends you personalized discounted offers for up to 10 of your favorite routes-directly to your desktop.
Here’s how it works. You download the Southwest Ding and enter your home zip code and up to 10 of your favorite destination airports. Whenever the price drops, Southwest will ding you with the details of the limited time offer.
Since Southwest Airlines still doesn’t charge a ticket change fee, you can buy a ticket for your next trip, then change the date at a later time. They currently allow you to save this credit for up to two years.
So frequent travelers, put a little DING in your week and have a great Love Thursday!
