We took Southwest's new non-stop service from St. Louis to San Diego and had the usual Southwest experience, few frills, but a great price plus no baggage fees - I managed to book for $64 per person one way plus taxes (!!). However, the flight crew was excellent as my 9 year-old son got sick (stomach flu) during the flight and they were right there and handled him wonderfully without most of the surrounding passengers even knowing. They didn't make a fuss, so he took it calmly, let him sit in the back for a few minutes, and checked on him after he went back to his seat. Considering it was nearly a four hour flight, and it could have seemed like the longest flight in the world, everything went great.
Yes, Southwest has it's downsides like no assigned seats, but the upsides of great prices, transferable reservations with no charge, and no baggage fees, plus some of the best flight attendants in the business make it my choice for family trips.
