    flyin a 737 and getting a lot of landings in one day would be a lot of fun, but for me its more about goals. I'm sure it would be a really fun place to work, with good job secuirty, but I'm pretty much addicted to traveling to cool places all over the world. It bugs the crap out of me if I dont accomplish a long term goal that I've had for a while, so if I dont get to do that I dont think I'd be happy.
    If you ever become a pilot here at WN....you will become a much more proficent pilot. In almost 3 years I can say that my visual approachs and landings have improved 100%. I'm no longer using the speedbrakes as a crutch for my poor vertical planning (except in the -700...you never have enough drag in those planes!). And while flying to the same places can be boring, it has advantages like knowing what runway to request to get in and out of an airport quickly. I was like you...I wanted internationl ops real bad, but I'm happy being a domestic guppy driver.

    But to return to the topic at hand:
    PT...you gotta a whole new way of like coming you're way man! Enjoy it....I have 2 boys (with numero 3 coming in 6-7 mos) and I tell everybody, even though they were not planned, they are the best things that I have done in my life and I'm sure you will feel the same way.

    Joe, as you know Southwest is not for everyone, SWA is for people who like to fly a lot of flights in a day, and stay within a certain area, and for good humored people (which is definetly you). By all means if you want to fly big planes and go intl go for it, clearly SWA is not the airline for you if you want to be able to do that. As Paul said you never know where or what SWA may be flying if they are still flying 30-40 years down the road. SWA is a good place to start but it is your choice to stay there or not. But in this day and age most people go for job security and in this industry, right now Southwest can offer that security.

    Just boils down to what your flying preference is!

    I think you might be a good fit for WN with your personality. Plus you never know where WN will be flying on what aircraft 30-40 years from now.

    See, I dont know if I'd want to fly for WN and here's why. Once you get on, other than upgrading to captain, there's really not much room for advancing your career. You're gonna be flyin the same plane to the same places for the rest of your career. But then again my goal since I was little was to fly somethin really reallly big and fly it all over the world.

    That would be cool, by the time shes a pilot for SWA maybe the W.A will be opened up and she can be the first pilot to fly out of DAL under the new law

    Maybe by the time she's a pilot Southwest will be the only Domestic airline.
