I was joking around with friends and family that the A-List from
Southwest doesn't really mean anything. I joked that there was no
first class, no upgrades, and they didn't even allow you to fly
standby (like most airlines). About the only thing you get as an A-
List member is occassional priority screening and ticketing lines
and . . . they check you in to your flight early putting you in as the
top 15 - 30 people to board the plane.
My last two flights I didn't take much advantage of that priviledge. I
sat in the back of the plane per normal situation for me, but this
time--as I fly on Sept 11th--I chose the emergency exit row. Why? I
figured, frankly, I'd help my fellow man on such a date as today. Now
that I'm sitting here though, typing away on my iPhone to create this
blog post, I'm enjoying crazy long leg room. That's not too big of a
deal seeing that I'm only 5'9" (well 5'10" if I stand up real
straight, usually only when I'm on a date with a tall woman or one in
some massive heels).
However the room for my laptop...now that is freaking awesome as hell
and well worth the 32 oneway flights needed to gain such prestigious
recognition as a Southwest Airlines A-List member. No need to scrunch
your elbows around trying to get to the mouse pad (or whatever it's
called). My screen isn't jammed up under the spinnie tray holder
dealie bob either so there's no reason to be freaked out that the dude
in front of me may get a sudden urge to press that button in his arm
chair and crush my screen to smitherings.
Life is good...A-List is good. Thanks @SouthwestAir you keep my
expectations low and over-deliver everytime!
Wait...free pretzels coming by...ooops...false alarm it was just the
honey roasted peanuts. ;-)
P.S. Sometimes it's just easier to blog on an iPhone.
