Nice decision, as holes going through en route storms tend to change by the minute. That doesn't change what myself and numerous others from many airlines have observed with WN being willing to "take a look" while others let y'all do what you do.

I know what I'm going to bet on with this report. (just to make the WN types even more defensive).

I'll just leave this right here..

If you learn something from other people's mistake and possibly take an extra minute to think something over a little more since you remember something that you talked about/read about/thought about somewhere (maybe this forum) then you are right - - - maybe someone uses' exceptional judgment might rub off on you!

No doubt. And there are those nuggets to be gleaned which I appreciate. I'm just fascinated by how many more perfect pilots exist on this website than exist in real life. At least if you listen to them talk.

Eh, depends on a lot of variables. imo.

Cool... they were turning from a snow covered taxiway onto a snow covered ramp. No sliding involved... misread the blue lights.

Threat? Yup. Mistake made? Obviously. Get r done thing going on there? Nope.

Whatever makes you feel better, though.

Yes, but it's pretty hard to calculate all of those variables on the fly so the safer answer is usually stay on the ground once the reversers/brakes are in play. If it's too short to stop at the end it's probably too short to going flying... do you want to go off the end at 20kts, or 120 kts with full thrust. You can generally do a touch and go, but I wouldn't linger for long...

Uh huh. Predictable response as I see that my point eluded you. Should that be a plane wearing SWA colors we'd all be getting lectured about some mythical "Get r done" mentality trying to get to the gate. But since it's your brand, they get a pass.

'Whatever makes you feel better though.'

Let's all just agree to learn from unfortunate events such as these and do our best not to repeat them.

The point was completely clear. You just jumped on a picture without having any idea what happened hoping it would make your point! I'll jump on us hardcore for that attitude too when it pops up... We had a MD-88 captain (which isn't surprising in this circle) self deice frost off the plane in PNS. That right there, is eye rolling.

Agreed on learning from our mistakes and not repeating them! That's what I'm trying to get at...

Still escaping you I see. The point is that things happen at EVERY carrier. There's no need to smear airlines with a falsely perceived culture that you know nothing about. Let's move on. I'm happy no one was injured in both scenarios.
