When you say, “let’s go,” go with Southwest.

I don’t travel much, particularly by airplane, but when I do, I’ve usually used Southwest Airlines.  That habit developed for a number of reasons, with a key one being that unassigned seating seemed to me a touch of randomness that would dissuade would-be terrorists.  (Granted, this felt like a more-pressing consideration some years ago.)

Now I’ve got another reason:

“We’re heading east at about seven or eight miles per hour,” the pilot stated. “Clear visibility, mostly clear skies, about 77 degrees. Thanks for coming out and flying Southwest Airlines, welcome aboard, and remember, ‘let’s go, Brandon.’”

Of course, an AP reporter on the flight reported on the incident and outrage mobs kicked into gear, so Southwest may very well ruin the good vibe, but for the moment, a Brandonophile can still hope.
