Hello! This is my first Trip report! I flew back home to Denver, from Grand Rapids , on Southwest on August 11. My trip out to Grand Rapids was not too entertaining, even though we did sit on the ramp for an hour because we had to change our flight plan due to a line of storms from Minnesota to Texas.
I was returning home to Colorado after an 8 day trip to West Michigan (8/03/18 to 8/11/18.) I had just finished visiting my family and I was ready to go home.
We got to the airport and we checked in for Southwest 6333. There was no one in line for our flight (I travel with my family) (I also forgot to take pictures for this part) We also got TSA pre check and we cleared that (It was really quiet, even though it was around 11 A.M. EDT)
I was the second person at the gate and got the best window seat to view the plane. I sat down and waited for the plane to arrive, and as I waited I did the IFC
Ah, there she is, N962WN! She is a 7 year old 737-700 with Split Scimitars!
I noticed that this plane had the old interior for Southwest. I haven’t flown on a plane with that interior since 2016.
We pushed back about 10 minutes early and taxiied towards runway 26 at KGRR.
We lifted off, and rapidly accelerated towards our cruising altitude of 40,000 feet. We flew over many small towns in Wisconsin, Iowa, and Nebraska. I switched seats with my dad about 1/2 way thru the flight. I got the window, and he moved to the aisle.
Food service was okay, and I got a Dr. Pepper, some pretzels, and veggie crackers from Southwest. I also got skittles and a water from the airport. rip Southwest peanuts by thw way😢
