Southwest June 2021 Schedule

Hey all - June credited 113 with 16 days off. Lots of reroutes and madness with computer issues. Also had a nice little flap fail issue into BZN where our final approach speed ended up around 170 knots and we had to wait 30 min for the brakes to cool before approaching the gate. Also inverter issues, DU issues… basically I am one big mechanical jinx. But it’s great experience! Loads are super full and lots of jumpseaters. Flew with our union VP yesterday and was interesting to hear his side of what’s going on. Looks like we will hire 120 folks before the end of the year. Cheers to one crazy summer!

One question? Did you have the fried rice in LIH?

Adam

I didn’t! I’ll take all the HI tips you’ve got. My CA on that trip actually lived on Kauai and ditched us to deal with some personal stuff. And I am sure you know how the rental car/uber situation is… so I didn’t get to explore much in Lihue.

Ok, little secret, the airport terminal restaurant (next to Starbucks) has the BEST fried rice on the planet! Our crews will bid those trips just to get rice and bring it home to the family. No rental or Uber needed. Your next LIH overnight grab some before you leave the airport or better before you leave in the am for breakfast. You will not be sorry. If you’re feel like being bad order it with gravy! It’s like crack! Seriously!
