Just like Ravn Alaska is way up north in Alaska, Southwest Airlines has their Head Office in Dallas, and that’s in Texas. I was so excited when they sent me a letter saying that they heard I went flying in a 1927 Waco Straight Wing biplane. But you know what? My one grandpa told me this great story about Southwest Airlines. He said it was just a story (that means it’s not true) but it’s still a great story.
He said that a long time ago, people said that Southwest Airlines got thought up on a paper napkin and that the idea was a triangle with three dots. Each dot was for a different city in Texas: San Antonio, Dallas, and Houston. And then the people with the napkin said, “Hey, that would be a really good idea to have a airline doing napkin flying.” Well, I don’t know if that’s exactly what grandpa said they said but that’s kind of what I remember mostly what he said so that’s close enough.
Anyway, it’s a story but it’s a great story, and it makes me think that everybody at Southwest Airlines probably is a whole lot of fun like whoever made up that story. Here’s what I know that’s true about Southwest Airlines: They wrote me a letter!
I’m going to ask my mom if she can get us to go on a trip on Southwest Airlines so I can look in the cockpit and see if they have a lady pilot. If they do, I’m going to ask if the airplane welcomer person can take a picture of me with the pilot.
I especially like the part of their letter that says they take kids to visit their grandparents. I’m really lucky because my grandparents don’t live so far away from me, so I don’t have to take a airplane to go see them. But if I did have to go a long way to see them, Southwest Airlines would take me there and I wouldn’t have to worry because they are superly friendly.
