Loophole to Buy Some Southwest Flights Over Half Off Through End of Month

Southwest Airlines does not charge customers change fees. However if you change your flight you take your original ticket cost and use it as a credit to buy a new flight. Southwest is apparently now waiving any increase in fare when you change flights. And that lets you buy a cheaper ticket than the one you want to fly, and just change to your preferred trip -- but that original booking must be in March.

Too Sexy to Fly: Woman in Crop Top Told to Cover Up or Get Off

Imagine my shock that Thomas Cook Airlines claims to have an (unpublished) policy against ‘inappropriate’ dress and that it was enforced against Emily O’Connor as she boarded her flight to Tenerife, a holiday destination in the Canary Islands. Southwest Airlines of course famously kicked 23 year old Kyla Ebbert off a flight over her short skirt, which struck me as ironic considering the original Southwest Airlines uniform.

Southwest Mechanics are Hamstringing the Airline, and it’s the Culture that May Suffer

The airline has been consistently down aircraft over the past couple of weeks and they haven't been able to fly a portion of their schedule. The carrier has been down 60 planes a day because a group of mechanics are writing up everything they can find to write up. The airline is almost certainly right that there’s a coordinated illegal job action on the part of mechanics, and it’s causing damage to the airline. However the carrier has maintained a strong culture of working with its employees. It...
