CHEERS TO THREE YEARS!

Not applicable
It's hard to believe that it has already been three years since we began delivering our hottest deals directly to our Customer's desktops through DING! While it may be DING!'s anniversary, our Customers will be the ones receiving the gifts (no hard feelings, DING!). We're kicking off the celebration by offering three days of great DING! fares, plus the chance to win some awesome prizes by submitting your own DING! headline.   With so many fantastic offers the past few years, our DING! headline writers are exhausted and we're giving them a break! If you have a DING! headline you think will get a laugh out of us, enter the contest by clicking on the link within DING! or visit http://www.southwest.com/contest/ding_headlines/landing.html  to install DING! and send the headline our way. You just might win a Royal Caribbean Cruise, roundtrip tickets on Southwest Airlines, or a $500 southwestgiftcard.tm Happy Anniversary, DING! Here's to many more!

We long " DING" because it offers us the the best fares to travel within the USA. Our whole company will only travel with South West Airlines and we continue to spread the word to everyone on how great it is to download *DING* !.

Happy Birthday, DING! Let's have a party! :) Thought for the day: What do A.M. & P.M. stand for? SWA LUV! 🙂

Leah, Those are the two broadcast bands on your car radio. The A.M. usually has numbers from about 550 to 1600 on it and features scratchy music and programs where people argue back and forth on the telephone about sports and politics. The 88 to 108 numbers are F.M., which has music coming out of all of those speakers around you. You may think I'm teasing you, but I'm really quite sirius. Kim External Blog Boy and Listener of FM 🙂

Congratulations on 3 years of DING! Great way to find last-minute low fares. There is some room for improvement though. How about offering DING as text messages? Send a list or at least an indication that new DING fares are being posted so we can get to a computer as soon as the fares are released. A DING! version for the Iphone would be useful too, since the Iphone can display regular websites. Please pass this on to your IT department. This can increase revenue to Southwest! DING! should exist on portable platforms since not everyone is at a computer all the time.

Ah, I see. Well, if I listen to the radio, I have it on FM. I never listen to AM but have had it on long enough to notice it's scratchy. Okay, the birthday party is ready! 🙂 It'll be fun! I don't have another thought for the day. Maybe next time I will. It's bed time anyway. Zzzzzzzzz. SWA LUV! 🙂

Kim's back! I haven't seen the EBB sig in ages. Granted, I haven't been around much either, but it's good to see you again. And I love your description of AM radio! Poor Leah, Kim didn't read your post very well. If he had, he would have said something like, "AM is when you wake up and it's dark, PM is when it's dark and you go to sleep." AM = Amplitude Modulation FM = Frequency Modulation But back to Leah's query: AM = Ante Meridiem PM = Post Meridiem Ante is Latin for before, Post is Latin for After, and Meridiem is Latin for midday. And today is February 29, that once-every-four-year event that keeps the sun in the right spot in the sky. Here's a factoid for you Leah - In 1712, Sweden had to add TWO extra days at the end of February for leap year. So not only did they have February 29, but they also had a February 30!

I noticed that DING! fares have changed in the past few weeks to being an endless list of exclusions on which flights they apply to. It's so complicated to figure all of them out that I'm giving up on DING! now. It was so great back when it was a simple listing from my home city, check the dates if they worked and booked it. Nothing simpler than that. I don't have time to sift through all the junk about the fare only applying to this flight or that one. Sad really. Oh well hopefully Southwest will go back to the simpler approach to DING!
