Default Just wanted to say thanks

I'm a Skywest guy and frequently hop on SWA for various travel purposes. While I have decent priority on UAL since we're a UAX carrier, I generally tend to try to jumpseat on SWA instead, simply because your crews are always very welcoming and friendly to us OAL crew, and your gate agents are universally helpful in trying to get us on (like this afternoon in LAX, although I should know better than to try to go *anywhere* on the last big Sunday before school starts!). I've probably jumped on SWA 40+ times and have always been treated wonderfully. I just wanted to say thanks, and I hope that when you all ride on OO, that we are equally welcoming

Absolutely, we’re practically family already. ATC calls us SkyWest on the radio half the time anyway.

Haha, that's true. When people ask who I work for, and I say Skywest, the response invariably is 'Oh yes, Southwest' and I then have to explain the difference, and sadly, that I don't have any drink coupons I can share with them.

Actually is that even a thing anymore? The drink coupons? Forever ago in a previous life I was an A-list Preferred customer (or whatever the top tier of Rapid Rewards was called before they changed the program). At one point I think I had enough drink coupons to buy drinks for the entire airplane...

I'll echo this sentiment. When I was commuting to MCI from AUS, WN was easily my best option.

The entire WN team was just amazing to me every time, from the gate agents, to pilots who made sure we were taken care of, to the flight attendants.

Y'all have a wonderful family and should be really proud of your airline.
