The Southwest Airlines Experience: Flying with Kids in Tow

October 17, 2010 2 Comments I have to admit when I first learned that the only airline that flew direct from Las Vegas, NV to Austin, TX was Southwest, I was a bit concerned.  After all, in the past the airline’s reputation had been less than stellar.  The reviews from friends and family were mixed; some had literally sworn never ...
