The SW Pilots and Flight Attendants should be forever grateful to their benevolent management team. What the heck is Door Dash?

OK..from this article southwest is providing what is known as the "dashpass"for f/as and cockpit crew members..having used door dash myself i will tell you its NOT a membership,but rather a service you pay for in advance that deletes the delivery fees for food orders..the delivery fee varies but is generally around $5.99 per order, and then you add the tip..its an ok "perc", but not that much incentive..i wish southwest the best with their current problems..
