Good job Southwest Crew!!!!
No "good jobs" but two "kudos" were posted.

And I'll add another "danged good job" as well.

Unfortunately, it'll only be hours before the armchair non-pilots start second guessing the crews actions a'la the DCA and MCO situations. We need to start spinning these incidents as "Flight Crews Saving-the-Day" headlines instead of spouting off with "What They Shoulda Done Was" and undermining the message that pilots can and do save lives and THAT'S why we are necessary and deserve to have decent work rules and compensation.

Nope-I heard they raced off to Chretin's and demanded 1-2-3's.

Why do we keep having Boeing's blow holes in them? There are Buses just as old out there working everyday and 9's or 80's that are way older and no holes...... I am just wondering what is going on with the Boeing narrowbodies?

Disregard. Ricky Bobby answered my question. 733.
Photos on this morning's TV news show a 737 with winglets. I don't think SWA, for that matter anyone, has -300s with winglets?

The -300s have winglets.

That was a joke. There are lots at SWA and a whole lot of other airlines too.

What is 'going on' is that they're having hundreds of thousands of completely safe and trouble-free flight hours.

Excellent work by the crew! My local paper reports a flight attendant "fainted" and hit her head. Hope all crew and pax are ok.
As far as the 1-2-3 at Chretins, place has gone downhill after moving from the original location.
