Southwest Sept 2021 Schedule

Hey all - September credited 113 with 19 days off (16 without sick days). Stayed within the CONUS this month mostly. All Hawaii planned for next month now that winter is coming back (gotta stay away from that de-icing!).

Exciting part - got a call from our chief pilot to work our inaugural flight for our new Disney airplane! Both Southwest and Walt Disney World celebrate their 50th Anniversary this year. We got the water cannon salute and all - had a blast meeting all the Disney execs and social media folks and flying them into MCO. Such an honor!

No way! You’re the lucky pilot who got to be apart of the inaugural crew of the new Disney plane? That’s awesome!

Yep! Since it was just the one flight, the CA and I decided to split it. So I did the takeoff/first half and got to be the very first pilot to fly it. So honored!
