At this point, the event is now full. If you would like a gate, take a look at the list of attendees and whoever has not checked in by the time the event starts, feel free to take their gate.

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

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

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

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

Spawned into KOAK

Traffic count at KOAK

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

Queuing and getting ready for takeoff Runway 30

Arrival into PHNL

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.

@BigBert10 I starved waiting for takeoff and then once I got in the air my game crashed and I couldn’t rejoin… thanks for hosting the event

Sorry about what happened and your iPad
Hopefully it works out better next time
