FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We wouldn’t believe it if we didn’t see it for ourselves. On Thursday night’s non-stop Southwest Airlines flight from Long Island to Fort Lauderdale, roughly 15 passengers were boarded early in wheelchairs. Yet somehow, clearly through an act of God or at the very least Southwest’s super powerful peanut mix, ten of those passengers walked off the plane themselves in Florida.
We have asked the Vatican for comment — surely this is a miracle. So far, no response.
Appreciating the corporate secrecy that must surround “miracle flights,” we are not asking Southwest how the airline combines neurological miracles with their incredibly low fares, free baggage allowance and smiley customer service.
But note this: while we can’t make any promises, and certainly don’t want to inappropriately raise anyone’s hopes, it does seem that a disproportionate number of invalid flyers are suddenly able to walk again following certain Southwest flights into South Florida. And for your consideration: it seems that “wanna getaway” fares are just as effective on “miracle flights” as “business select,” although “business select” fares do ensure they if your flight is a miracle flight, you’ll be walking sooner than those who paid less.
