I’ve just experienced an incredible weekend, and I’m not ready for it to end. I never look forward to the end of fun weekends, but I’m dreading this trip home more than ever because I have to fly again…on Southwest.I booked this flight before my story made the news. And tomorrow I have to take that flight which makes me feel sick to my stomach.
I flew first class on American Airlines last week – best flight ever thanks to the lovely flight attendant as well as my incredible flying buddy – and as I said, I’ve purchased two seats many times in the past. At this point, I can sit with the armrests down without “spilling over”into the next seat. And I’ll be flying with friends tomorrow so I know I should relax and enjoy the last bit of time with people who support me and encourage me. But I find myself worrying about the boarding process because I can’t think of many things I dislike more than flying on Southwest.
That being said, my experience at the Southwest counter when I was en route to Los Angeles was fine. They did everything by the book, and Kent and I had no issues with our flight. I sat in the middle seat because Kent is so tall that he has to extend his legs into the isle when no one is walking through, and I was fortunate to sit next to a lovely woman who chatted with us throughout the flight.
I’ll check in tomorrow and hope for excellent service, but I’ll be a little nervous too until we’re in the air. I’m not sure how to release that fear so I’m sharing it here because that’s what this blog has always been about – sharing my fears, facing them and overcoming them.
Wish me luck….
