My favorite airlines
My favorite Airlines is Southwest hands down. I love them for many reasons, but mainly because I love supporting a company that just makes sense. I took a summer course at Harvard once and Southwest was our case study. I already loved the fact that they did not charge a ticket change fee and had low fares, but after this course I was sold for life.
Did I mention that YOU PAY NO CHANGE FEE? YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR FLIGHT ANYTIME AND JUST BANK THE COST TO USE LATER. THEY DO NOT CHARGE FOR LUGGAGE. THEIR REWARDS PROGRAM IS EASY AND YOU CAN USE IT ANYTIME.
They have the best Flight attendants. Their earlybird program is cheap $12.50 and allows you to board early. I always pay for this and sit in an aisle seat in one of the first few rows.
According to Wikipedia, "Southwest Airlines Co. is the world's largest low-cost carrier, headquartered in Dallas, Texas. The airline was established in 1967 by Herb Kelleher and adopted its current name (Southwest Airlines) in 1971.The airline has nearly 46,000 employees as of December 2014 and operates more than 3,800 flights per day. As of 2014, it carries the most domestic passengers of any U.S. airline."
Southwest hired its first black pilot, Louis Freeman, in 1980. In 1992, he was named the first black chief pilot of any major U.S. airline. On March 16, 1995, Southwest became one of the first airlines to have a website.
For the tenth year in a row, Fortune magazine recognized Southwest Airlines in its annual survey of corporate reputations. Among all industries in 2004, Fortune has listed Southwest Airlines as number three among America’s Top Ten most admired corporations. Southwest maintains excellent customer satisfaction ratings; according to the Department of Transportation (DOT) Southwest ranks number one (lowest number of complaints) of all U.S. airlines for customer complaints.
On April, 14th 2014, a FORTUNE magazine article by Joseph Blasi and Richard Freeman stated that "Southwest Airlines announced workers will share in a record $228 million profit-sharing payout this year. That’s nearly double the $121 million payout a year ago, and an example to everyone of what American capitalism should be. Southwest has a long history of broad-based cash profit sharing, broad-based employee stock ownership, and even, for many years, broad-based stock options among all of its employees. One can look at the Dallas-based airline’s actions using a “small ball” perspective, and think they are simply incentives to get people to work harder, or that it’s just a story about compensation. But what Southwest is really doing is setting the example of how all U.S. corporations should behave in a capitalist system that is inclusive to employees."
