I was just about to post something about my disappointment in the newly started Southwest Airlines blog when Scoble, made more agile by his recent brief retirement, had this to say on the very same subject. He pretty much wraps up my thoughts on the subject.
I guess strange minds think alike.
Like, Scoble Southwest is my primary regional airline. I could tell them all sorts of reasons why I love them, but this blog by their VP Marketing and Sales does not motivate me to join their conversation.
God, I'd much rather hear from a pilot or flight attendant or one of their really nice gate personnel. But to tell me that SWA is for business travelers when I have been using it for business travel more than once a month for about a year now, is kind of insulting. To complain that they are not just a leisure travel airline has certain irony.
Every time I go to my favorite vacation spots, I have to use a different carrier because Southwest doesn't fly to Mexico, Hawaii, Italy or any of the other places where Paula and I can play when we have the money.
