Southwest Airlines 737 Blows Its Top. First Wi-Fi, Now Skylights?

Our staff actually (if you can believe it) has in-depth experience with Boeing 737's. All jokes aside about "Convertibles," "Cabriolets," "Skylights," and "Pop-Tops," the airplane and crew all did their jobs getting everyone on the ground safely (no matter what doom & gloom your local news broadcasts).

This event also supports our long standing opinion that high-cycle operations require more than the standard maintenance timelines.
