    My SW flight to Vegas on Thursday was announced as full based on the reduced capacity guidelines.
    They announced that everyone can have a window or aisle seat and the middle seat is only to be used if it is friends or family that you are comfortable with.

    Thats so crazy. That Chilis is normally packed at the bar. My next flight, hopefully, will be to MKE to visit family.
    I've never seen that airport so empty, even compared to when I get in early in the morning.

    Live an hour northwest of MKE and travel of of Mitchell Field several times a year; never seen it so empty. Going to Las Vegas 08/16, hopefully the plane is full, but not too full! and hoping to sip a Wild Turkey on ice on the way there.

    I flew back and forth to Phoenix over the weekend on SWA, and the flight was full both ways (except for the middle seats). The lack of face coverings and social distancing in Phoenix / Scottsdale area is somewhat scary. It is definitely a more cavalier attitude out there.

    We flew home to a Dallas from Kansas City with 7 other people. We all spread way out. My hubs and I both had our own row. Nice to had so much room.

    This is exactly why I don't care to fly in the near future. 30-60 days down the road will probably be more lax. As passenger loads increase, so will terminal crowds which is another problem. No thanks for now.

    My flight to and from Vegas were “full”, my boarding position was B20 and B43, and I was in group of the last 5 to board.

    Both ways, there were groups of people that simply took their mask off as soon as they got on the plane. The attendants didn’t even mention mask wearing once we lifted off. Just gave the water and snack and sat for the rest of the flight.

    Has SWA cutoff alcohol as well? I see that Delta and some others have. I've got a bag full of snacks for my flight on Thursday. I intend to slow eat the whole 4 hours. It's supposed to be better for you to eat slowly. :wink2:

    When you say full...was the middle seat open or all the seats like a normal full?
