Default Southwest Passengers: "Goodbye Forever"

Southwest Airlines Passengers Thought Death Was Near as Plane Attempted Landing in Storm


Passengers on board a Southwest Airlines plane screamed, cried, vomited, and texted during an attempted landing in a storm in New Orleans.

The harrowing incident on Southwest Airlines Flight 3461 on Saturday also prompted one passenger to send goodbye sexts to loved ones as the pilot attempted to land the plane, which had set off from Fort Lauderdale. “I thought we were going to crash,” WWLTV reporter Lauren Bale, who was a passenger on board the flight, said.

“I was going all over the place. People were screaming, people were crying. The flight attendants were yelling over the speakers to fasten seat belts as tightly as possible and I was texting my boyfriend goodbye,” she added in comments carried by UK newspaper The Daily Mail. “I just don't understand why [Southwest Airlines] put everyone in that situation. Why did we have to fly at all?”

Another passenger, Marie Wary, told WWLTV she felt like she was about to die as the plane attempted to land, while at least one passenger vomited during the incident. After attempting to land at Armstrong International Airport in New Orleans, the plane was redirected to Panama City, in Florida, where it refueled and later continued on with its journey – eventually landing safely.

But given the storm, there were questions over why the flight was not cancelled before taking off, rather than trying to fly through the bad weather, with KGW reporting passengers saying there was little to no visibility with thunder and lighting during the attempted landing.

In a statement, Southwest Airlines said: “Our top focus is Safety. Flight 3461 from Fort Lauderdale to New Orleans arrived about fourteen hours behind schedule after persistent thunderstorms over New Orleans forced prolonged holding near New Orleans awaiting clearance from air traffic controllers followed by a refueling stop in Panama City before the completion of the journey.”

“We have no further comment,” the statement added.

Unrelated, but this was a landing during a storm....
Warning, this may be disturbing to some viewers because this is the actual CVR recording and everyone died:

I'm wondering if South-worst is competing with Allegiant Air in the attempt to give their passengers a flying experience like no other... You know when employees of the FAA say that they would never fly on Allegiant - yikes!

Cos they all had magic phones . . . or maybe cos clearly they were not at FL35 since they were attempting to land

For what is worth:

Planes don't fly into storms, we can see them and ATC can see them. Airliners have built in radar, we have nexrad or ADSB map overlay depictions. I dont know why that article keeps saying that they were flying through/into a storm. It doesnt happen.
Turbulence and winshear however are harder to forecast and are both invisible.

Planes do not "attempt to land" through (or in) a storm either. No approach or tower controller will ever clear you for an approach procedure nor a landing while a storm is over the field.
They would place you over a published hold and have you fly an oval pattern till conditions improve and they can accept arrivals. If you get low on fuel, or if you dont want to be on a hold, you can choose to be redirected to your alternate airport.

Being placed on a hold is NOT "attempting to land", so idk why they keep saying that on the article.
