Despite Baltimore’s Image Problems, Southwest Airlines Magazine Calls it ‘the City You’re Missing’

Baltimore has been riddled with controversy since the start of the new year, but Southwest Airlines is singing its praises in an in-flight magazine that will reach more than 5 million readers next month.

“Southwest: The Magazine” will include a 24-page spread (13 editorial pages, the rest ads) on Charm City in its next issue, to be released on Feb. 1, taking an in-depth look at the city and its people alongside ads from local restaurants, hotels and organizations. Jay Heinrichs, a bestselling author and the magazine’s editorial director, touts Baltimore as possibly “the most underrated city in America” and “the city you’re missing.”
