Southwest knew what it was doing when it selected its ticker symbol. I’m sure it was because of its home base there in Dallas at Love Field, but I luv that company. Strange that they seem to be able to operate so well, so safely, so happily and so profitably when others cannot. People sure bitch about Southwest, and I think there was even a TV show based on travelers’ complaints, but if there’s a choice, I fly Southwest every time. This here’s a shot of them bringing me back from Vegas, with money in my pocket and no hangover. The three guys behind me who were celebrating a buddy’s return from Iraq? Not sure if they had any money left, but they were not feeling so well.
