I love Southwest when I go to orlando they have one way flights and it is so much better than connecting flights. Tried it this time going out to orlando. Had to stop in Atlanta and then fly again. hopefully never again. I get spoiled very easy to convenience and Southwest has that for now.

The TA I use does high cruise volume and has charter flights for their patrons on Sat. and Sun. morning (popular departure days for the 7 day cruises). Everyone on the plane pretty much is cruising. It is kind of fun. If you want to fly the day before you need to use scheduled air. It is really a nice set up--only scarey thing with flying same day is Minnesota weather.

SWA also allows two bags free!!! At todays' airline prices that saves us a chunk of cash!!

My wife just flew to Minneapolis on Southwest from Orange County (CA), and will fly back from Buffalo, N.Y.; the fare was $240 total and she checked two bags at no charge.

Southwest is our airline of choice. We only have 3 choices out of Amarillo...SW, Continental (which we use to fly to Coz) and American which is by far my least favorite.

We also us a SW Visa card (pay it off every month and never carry a balance) for all of our business and personal expenses and we haven't paid for a SW flight in over 5 years...sure helps the price on cruising.

When were were in Belfast last month, we noticed how very busy the travel agency places we saw were. It was a steady stream all day long and their windows were covered with cruise specials.

Back in July, when I did the Celebrity Equinox preview cruise, Southampton had 5 cruise ships in port on the day we debarked. The Celebrity CEO had a Q&A with the passengers and many of the UK citizens were quite direct about their displeasure with their small number of new ship options. To me it was clear - we in the UK have the money to spend and we don't want to have to fly to the U.S. for the latest and greatest ship. The CEO did a pretty good Ralph Kramden impression (hamina hamina hamina) to more than one questioner.
