Baby Born on Southwest Flight

Another baby was born mid-air, this time on a Southwest flight from Chicago to Salt Lake City on Friday. The mother went into premature labor, diverting the flight to a unexpected landing in Denver, where mother and baby were met with medical crew.

The baby, a boy, has not yet been named, but suggestions are flying around the interwebs: Sky, Midway, Turbulence, Peanut, and Southwest’s suggestion; TJ Luv, after the airlines’ own mascot. No word on what (if anything) the child and/or mother will get from Southwest, though I’m sure they are hoping for something a la Asia Air, who recently gave a lifetime pass to a baby born mid flight.
