So glad the plane held up ok! Now they need to figure out why it happened! I'm not sure I would have flown just then...perhaps rent a car, or train, or....if possible.

low cost airline = low cost maintenance

Low cost, you are off base. Southwest is one of the safest airlines, and has one of the best records on maintenance.

This new problem was hidden from view and there was no indication from the airline manufacturer that this part of the plane had to be uncovered in order to check it as part of maintenance.
