Nuts about blogs
Southwest Airlines, welcome to the blogosphere.
Southwest, an outstanding Boeing customer, has decided that blogging is not so nutty, and started up the Nuts about Southwest blog a couple of weeks ago. As Southwest proclaimed in its first entry, "Birds do it. Bees do it. Even educated Southwest is going to do it."
It's great that this fantastic airline is taking to the blogosphere to provide some insight into its world, its employees, and how they deliver superior customer service.
And I couldn't help but notice some mentions in the blog post about winglets on Southwest's fleet of 737s. They included some nice photos of winglets in flight.
And I really enjoyed another entry about the beekeeper who visited Southwest's Dallas maintenance hangar. The beekeeper said he understood why one of the airplanes was there to be fixed, because the wings were bent! A mechanic had to explain that actually, no, those were blended winglets, designed to help with fuel efficiency, range, and a variety of other benefits.
Just browsing the site almost makes you want to sit back and rip open a bag of peanuts!
