The ticket counter lady helped me schlep my suitcase to the X-ray machine and checked my car seat to make sure it's FAA approved....
She re-arranged our seats so that we'd be near the front of the plane, so that I didn't have to carry all my baby crud to the back of the plane. The gate agents helped me stow my stroller and carry on bags. The flight attendant chatted with my toddler about her doll....
I generally fly NWA (I'm Gold Elite) and don't get treated nearly as nicely as I did as a harried mom with two kids. And I wasn't charged to check my suitcase!
Sounds pretty nice except for one thing: Midwest will start charging $15 for your first checked bag on October 12.
