The whole model of the business community was focused on survival instead of expanding. But apart from many challenges, there were some goods in the process.

Southwest Airlines Just Made a Long-Awaited Change, and It Looks Like the End of an Era

This a story about Southwest Airlines catching up to its competitors.

Quick background: Just a few short years ago, one of the big challenges facing Southwest and other airlines was the proliferation of passengers who insisted on bringing emotional support animals aboard.
