I think anyone who flies southwest is really brave..I enjoy watching the show on a and e called airline it profiles southwest terminals at certain airports and with all of the problems people have had I would never fly that airline. I also fly a few times a year and my husband flies on average 70-90 segments a year for his job and we like flying Continetal or Northwest these are our personal preferences. Howver we did take a American flight to Hawaii which was very enjoyable!! I love flying it is one of my favorite things to do!We went a year ago to Africa many many flights and Kenya Airways, Continental , KLM very interesting airline!! We had rather limnited choices on which airlines we flew!! Anyway we will be flying Northwest 2 days after Christams to visit family in Utah looking foward to it!! I hope tha airlines make it out of theri problems for those of us who like to travel and fly!!
