After a lovely Columbus Day (or Indigenous People's Day) weekend, it was time to return back home to Washington. Traveling through PVD is always a breeze and I was airside within 10 minutes. I headed straight to my gate, which was a five minute walk away. There was a recently opened Escape Lounge there, however it was only part of the American Express Global Lounge Collection and not Priority Pass, which I get membership through my Chase Sapphire Reserve. Access would've been nice if not a bit unnecessary. I sure hope Priority Pass adds it since it has some other Escape Lounges in it's network. I'd certainly get use out of it since I travel roundtrip through PVD 2-3 times a year. Anyways, soon boarding was called. I was in the B boarding group and soon I was admitted onboard.
I was flying onboard a 737-700 with the old interior but new seat covers and bulkhead designs. What southwest is doing reminds me of what American has done im the past few years with LUS (Legacy US Airways) planes-it's all about style over substance. I stowed my bag and settled into my window seat. The recline felt pretty good for an economy seat and the legrrom was pretty ok. Soon, overhead bins were secured and the safety demo was performed.
After a short taxi, we were began our takeoff roll. Shortly after takeoff, pretzels were passed out and drink orders were taken.
Shortly after, we started our initial descent into BWI.
After landing, were on stand promptly. I grabbed my bag and headed straight to the exit.

Not a bad flight. Slightly above average if not anything special.
