I love flying Southwest, and no I'm not getting paid to say that. I just love that the two checked bags are free and even though the open seating isn't the best it's still a system that seems to work out pretty well.  Vacations are fun but spending a whole day on a plane can really suck the life out of you. Well coming home from this vacation was all kinds of suck. I had my mom and my son with me and folks we are a good trio I promise you that but we all have our limits and when a plane has a malfunction in the engine I don't care how long you've been waiting to go home, you're more than happy to deboard after sitting on the tarmac in a hot plane for an hour. And that's exactly what we did. All things considered I think they did a great job switching us out and taking care of our luggage and such. We all got home safe with all our things, even if it was 3 or 4 hours later than we had planned.
