An Open Letter to Southwest

Dear Southwest,

I love you. I’ve loved you since I was an undergrad student studying business when I learned about your disruptive business model, unique company culture and commitment to customer service.

Admittedly, I’ve never loved the “open seating” model and feeling like I’m being herded onto the plane (I’m from Kentucky, so I have to use the animal/farm comparison). In recent years, as I learned of your groundbreaking customer of size policy I have committed to flying your airline exclusively in order to both help make my own flying experiences better but also to put my money where my mouth is and support a business who accommodates people like me and makes our lives better/easier.

I travel A LOT for both business and pleasure.  Like, once a month or sometimes more. For a long time I was miserable during EVERY. SINGLE. FLIGHT.  The craziest part is that most of this misery was self-induced, but some of it was out of my control… at least that’s what I thought!

Over the years, I have finally figured out the most important tips & tricks for a stress-free and comfortable flight.

What I’m about to share with you really, truly changed my life and eliminated 99% of my travel related stress.
