They don’t fly out of Newark Liberty Airport anymore and they definitely don’t fly out of JFK .
In the New York area, they fly out of McArthur Airport , which is in Islip and Laguardia, which is close to me but I’d rather fly out of Newark Liberty then fly out of the madhouse that is Laguardia .
As for Islip McArthur, it’s way too far and it isn’t even in the city of Islip ,Long Island .
It’s in Ronkonkoma.
So when my 30 Plus Teams Tour took me on a one day trip to San Francisco , I jumped at the chance to take my favorite airline for the one hour and 10 minute flight from Las Vegas .
As I really didn’t have any luggage, just a drawstring bag that held everything pretty much , security was quick and easy for once, and I arrived at the airport way earlier than my 6:15am flight.
Southwest doesn’t charge for carryon bags like some other airlines do, and your first two check in bags are free.
The seats have numbers but there’s no assigned seating , which means that you can sit anywhere on the plane , even the exit row, if you feel like helping out in cases of emergency .
It was nice having the middle seat empty.
A whole row to myself would have been nice, but hey, the Sports Diva is on the plane, living her best life,doing that 30 Plus Teams Tour of San Francisco .
There are no screaming babies on the flight and no kids kicking the back of my seat .
Coming back, I’ll be taking Alaska Airlines , a carrier that I have never been on before .
My return will be on another post .
In the meantime , it’s about the planes that are blue, orange and red, Southwest Airlines.
I just have one question for them though.
Would it be asking too much for you guys to fly out of JFK ?
I’m just asking for a friend who also loves going on 30 Plus Teams Tours .
