We were the last flight out of Orlando on a flight that was delayed. When checking with airline personnel at check in, we were told immediately of the delay in this flight. Apparently an earlier flight had a mechanical issue which caused delays going forward. Boarding went well, no glitches and as is the norm with SW, you choose your seat when you board. Our flight was not quite full and we were able to get seats towards the front of the plane. We were told during our flight that there were significant storms across the Midwest and that we would be flying around 40K feet above the storms. Because of this decision, the flight was smooth with minimal turbulence. Comfortable flight. Would choose this airline again.
