Southwest Airlines -- Keeping fares low by not splurging on monospaced fonts for our word searches




The sad thing is that I had done all the rows and was starting on the third column before I noticed.

I don't think that is a font problem. its hard to read with the gold on blue, but it looks like the top row has 15 letters, and the 2nd has 13. Most rows have 13-14 letters, but the occasional 15 pops in there.

They just stuck as many letters on each row as it took to make them take up (roughly) the same horizontal space. The font they used in not monospaced/fixed-width, so it takes a different number of letters depending on which letters are used.

I noticed this yesterday as I flew home from holiday vacation. I'm pissed at Southwest Airlines though because they smashed the plastic casing on one of our suitcases and destroyed our daughter's car seat as well. They say that the car seat is tough luck because they don't insure them for damage. That would have been nice to know before we checked it.

Airlines do not feel that they are responsible for anything. yuk

Just be thankful that they didn't beat you and drag you off of the plane.
