NOTAM


If you haven’t already, spawn in now as we are minutes away from pushback!


#144

So this is why there was a ton of SW aircraft at Oakland… sorry if I caused any delays 😬. Have a nice flight!


#145

It’s fine, I just didn’t know why you stopped taxiing near the remote gates


#146

Cause I was gonna let you guys go ahead of me, but no one moved.


#147

We were planning to let you go ahead of us XD

That is so we can be in queue with a bunch of Southwest aircraft and not a JetBlue in between them

Have a safe flight to Long Beach! :D

HAHA! Both KOAK and KSJC got traffic and there is no one on the ground at KSFO >:)
Thanks @Dylan_M for not cancelling the KSJC event even though it conflicts with my KOAK event! :D

Overall, this event turned out really well! :D
I really enjoyed celebrating this inaugural Southwest commercial/revenue flight to Hawaii! I really enjoyed this event! :D

Southwest Virtual pilots, make sure to add 1.5x bonus flight time to your PIREPs! :D

I will keep this thread open until tomorrow morning so you can share your pictures.
