TikTok Video About Southwest Airlines Checking Pool Noodle Goes Viral and Way Beyond That!
Sydney Fowls and her cousins were planning a girls’ trip from Columbus, Ohio to Tampa when the idea came to mind: See if they could get away with checking a pool noodle on their Southwest Airlines flight. Sydney, a poor college student, reluctantly agreed, thinking there was no way they would let her check that item.
“They were like, ‘That’d be so funny, do it!’ And I was like, ‘I’m not doing that,” Fowls said. “They said, ’We’ll give you $20 if you check your pool noodle’ – and I was like, ‘OK cool, $20, I’m in college, I’m broke.’”
“When we boarded the plane, we just happened to look out the window and there were the ramp guys loading my pool noodle onto the plane,” she laughed.
By the time she landed at TPA, she knew it’d make for a funny TikTok video – but never imagined it’d go viral.
Southwest Airlines went above and beyond the call of duty to show their appreciation. Check out this news story.
