Is It Safe to Fly Southwest?

Are You Still a Fan of Southwest?

Your confidence in Southwest might have been shaken after hearing about the large hole that opened up on one of the budget airline's planes last week, which led to an emergency landing. About 600 flights were canceled over the weekend, and the airline inspections revealed that cracks were apparently found on two other planes. We've long been fans of the budget airline on Savvy, and have given you tips on how to find the best seat and dissecting its new rewards program, so this news comes as a blow to us.

I used to be a huge fan of Southwest, but I think I'm going to wait until I hear more news about the inspections before flying on it again. What about you — will you still fly Southwest?

When airlines find a major flaw, then tend to overhaul and over-inspect everything immediately after. Plus, to woo back customers that might be scared, they'll most likely lower prices. f anything, the next few months should be the best/safest times to fly with Southwest! (I am just saying this so that I can feel better about flying to Vegas via Southwest next month.)
