On the road to Mandalay......
Lined up on 24L as an Alaskan Mad Dog heads into the overcast sky.
Taxiing out to runway 10L.
90 seconds from landing and just passing downtown Phoenix.
Touchdown on 07R 53 minutes after take off from LAX, spoilers deployed and the control tower in the distance.
Turning onto final for 07R at Phoenix.
I could just as easily be in an easyJet 737 cruising over Europe as a Southwest 737 cruising over California-only the credits betray the myth.
I'm about to take my first Southwest flight, WN1339 to Phoenix, Jacksonville, Fort Lauderdale and Birmingham. I'm just onboard for the first sector.
