Southwest Airlines Adds On Another Sneaky Fee PDF Print E-mail


Of course, all airlines are into the nickel-and-diming routine to boost income and exec salaries. The new SW charge, called Early Bird Check-In, will get you to a seat to grab before all those lined-up ABCD passengers behind you can scramble aboard.

However, before making reservations on any airline, do your online homework to get the best possible ticket prices, including taxes, extra fees and other sneaky add-ons.

Now that every aspect of our society is offensive to someone, the vintage Pirates Of The Caribbean rides at Disneyworld and Disney Land are changed. The scene where pirates auction off captured women is now auctions of captured chickens.

Southwest Air Tightens Rules On Flying Support Animals PDF Print E-mail


Senior travelers are familiar with the cheaters. Passengers who get fake IDs for Fido board first and grab the best seats. It happens on other airlines, as well as some cruise lines. Southwest has taken steps to make sure the helper animals are legitimate and not a bother to other passengers and crew. Now each must be on a leash throughout the flight and obey the rules.

Southwest's new policy, as of mid-September, requires travelers’ emotional support animal to wear a visible tag, and the owner must show a letter from an MD or licensed mental health pro. The only acceptable companions on SW flights are qualified dogs and cats.
