Chase Employees Game The System, Too!

I had an interesting conversation with a Chase bank employee that threw me for a loop. I have a Chase bank branch that I’ve been using since the old days when it was a Washington Mutual. I know many of the employees there, and from time to time we chat about all things Chase. Last year Southwest Airlines had a special promotion, if you lived in California, giving its companion pass as a bonus when you got the Chase Southwest credit card. Quite a deal!

Southwest+Hawaii = Not The News We Were Hoping For

Come on, Southwest, get us to Hawaii already! I’m craving some aloha, a cup of Kona coffee, and an authentic poke bowl. I’ve been following the Hawaii-Southwest saga since early August.

Southwest Expands to Hawaii: Latest News

Come on, Southwest, get us to Hawaii already! October came and went and still no word from Southwest Airlines on its expansion to Hawaii. Disappointing, to say the least.

Friends in Hawaii report that they hear what’s blocking the start date are issues with the inter-island flights once SWA gets to Hawaii. None of my friends work for SWA so this is just what they hear and nothing official. But last time I wrote about Southwest’s expansion to Hawaii it addressed just this topic of inter-island flights.
