On my recent trip to San Antonio I had the pleasure of flying on Southwest Airlines. I like flying on Southwest (no, I am not a paid spokesperson) and have come to enjoy their playful approach the usually dry safety instructions given by the flight attendants. (For example; “If you are traveling with a child or someone that acts like a child...” or my favorite, “Please pretend to pay attention while the flight attendant explains the safety procedures...” But I’d have to say the funniest thing of all is something that in all likelihood was not meant to be funny at all. Southwest is probably one of the last airlines to offer free peanuts to its passengers. That in itself isn’t funny but the little disclaimer on the package is (this is paraphrased); “may have been processed on equipment that may have used peanuts.” What the...?! Kinda nutty, wouldn't you say?
*My other favorite airline is Horizon Air (No , I am not a paid spokesperson.) They give out free microbrew beer. Maybe Southwest and Horizon could merge....Free peanuts and beer. Now that would really be the only way to fly!
