    Flight Attendant Applications Swamp Website

    The number of people wanting to become a Southwest Airlines flight attendant has reached a record high. On Monday, Southwest began accepting flight attendant applications in the careers section of its website. So many people tried to submit an application that that part of the Dallas-based carrier’s website went down.
    “The pipeline was full,” Southwest spokeswoman Brandy King said about the website’s crash. “The number of people trying to utilize those pipelines was unprecedented.”
    Several people complained that they tried for hours to send Southwest their résumés, so the carrier reopened the flight attendant position post for a little more than an hour Wednesday.
