For those of you who haven’t heard, our Twitter account, @FlightWisdom won a trip on the inaugural flight out of New York‘s LaGuardia Airport to Chicago‘s Midway Airport.

Southwest was even shocked they drew our name…to quote their tweet…

“wow, can’t believe I just drew @flightwisdom you have 2 mins (4:43 EST) to reply and win a spot on our 1st LGA-MDW flt Sunday!”

We are very excited. This is our first chance to cover an aviation event like this. We’ll try our hand at liveblogging and live-tweeting, as time permits, and snapping pictures(if only we had a better phone). We didn’t ask if Southwest has brought in one of their Wi-Fi equipped planes, but the hotel they are putting us up in definitely has wi-fi. We haven’t been on Southwest in a bit, and will be commenting on our thoughts on the experience, not only of their service, but launching a new city.

To satisfy the FTC: Southwest is picking up the tab for the trip, including hotel accommodations. We will attempt to report on them fairly and honestly.
