Every Seat Has a Story: Hudson’s Big Day

Below is a story that was born out of a Facebook post from Customer Trisha Hughes. The initial post contained a simple thank you and a request to find the Southwest Pilot who was kind enough to brake and wave to her 5-year-old son, Hudson, from the flight deck of a Boeing 737. Using the time the picture was taken and pairing it with our schedule out of Albuquerque's Sunport, we were able to identify the Pilot, Captain Michael Hickey. For one 5-year-old, a Pilot waving back to him from an airplane was more than enough. For Captain Michael Hickey, the wave was only the beginning. The following post tells the story of Trisha and her son after we acknowledged their "firecracker moment" on social media. The associated video goes a bit further.
