Southwest Airlines Wants You to Star in Their Next Commercial
October 11, 2010 at 10:30 AM
At this point Southwest Airlines has done a pretty good job letting everyone know that bags fly free aboard their red-bellied planes, but now they might be spreading the word about another of their traveler friendly policies. Best of all, they want you to help them out by promoting their lack of a change fee.
Southwest doesn’t charge a change fee, and they are looking for a few good travelers to share their stories about switching flights and paying for it. A casting company is trying to find some Los Angeles-area travelers who have been screwed by all kinds of change fees to star in some new commercials. The airline is looking for anyone and everyone, as long as you have paid one of these fees and have the paperwork to backup your sob story. They want to see credit card statements along with you tears.
If you think you can make your big break in Hollywood through a Southwest commercial, just send your name, age, phone number, location, a picture of yourself, and a little information about your change fee fiasco right here. We’ve never tried to become famous ourselves, so we don’t really know what the odds are that you’ll find yourself in front of the camera.
One thing we do know is that Southwest will be keeping this no-change-fee policy moving forward, once they finish the process of buddying up with AirTran. After all, they wouldn’t be filming new commercials if they were planning to get rid of this, right?
