Glimpse Into a Wish with Southwest Airlines

Southwest Airlines, Give Wishes Wings, Kelly, Daniel
Sometimes, it’s the small details. It’s the little moments that add up to something that’s unforgettable.

tyler southwest airlinesThis photo from Tyler’s wish is a glimpse into one of those moments. And it’s exactly the sort of thing Southwest Airlines does so well for wish kids – they figure out how they can elevate wishes, from decorating the gates to announcing wish kids in-flight. (And let’s not forget the ticket vouchers Southwest donates to get wish kids to their destinations.)

Imagine what this is like for a 4-year-old boy with a heart condition. People Tyler doesn’t even know are making his day incredible in unexpected ways. Many of us at Make-A-Wish have seen Southwest Airlines employees in action during a wish – and their genuine, spontaneous enthusiasm is hard to match.

It’s right here in this photo … a pilot took a few extra moments for a wish kid. And both of their lives are better for it.
