    Im really happy to hear that Southwest is comming to Grand Rapids but disapointed in the limited cities they will be flying to. I was hopeing for more

    I'm completely satisfied with this company. After living in Little Rock from 2003-2007 and using their airline for several trips home during military leave, I've trusted no other airline more than Southwest. Despite the "limited" cities issues, you can still get to nearly any city in the U.S. for as much, if not cheaper than the major airlines, who, may I add, charge outrageous baggage fees. The points system with Southwest is also much easier to earn free travel than any other airline, as well. When Southwest comes into Grand Rapids, U.S. Airways and United will completely lose my interest, as Southwest totally outperforms them in their business model, customer service and mostly in the way they don't class their passengers. Thank you, Southwest! I've been waiting a long time for this! :)

    It depends to a vary flights that they scheduled. A good vibes for the travelers/vacationist that they surprised for the promotions of purchasing tickets towards appetite to travel somewhere because summer is the best month/s to trip some wonderful places in the world.
