Wallace stated that, “he had half a pint of vodka, including two shots, just before boarding the plane.” He continues stating that he vaguely remembers tying their hands and it was all in “good fun.”

One of the flight attendants noticed his odd behavior and moved the two girls (whom Wallace did not know) to another aisle. It took action from the girl’s mother to prompt an investigation.

For the 69th straight quarter, Southwest Airlines is once again making a profit. With all the airlines charging more and adding on fees, Southwest Airlines sticks to its guns and continues to give the same great level of service with out tacking on fees.

Long ago Southwest Airlines was known to be a “no-frills” airline. Now with not charging for baggage or drinks, they are becoming “the frills airline”.

Personally, I hope they can keep it up!
