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.
