Nuts About Southwest Gate Game...

Not applicable
Hello folks!  It has been awhile since I've had the opportunity to post.  I'm currently out on a leave of absence and hope to be back at work the middle of March.  But since I have A LOT of time on my hands, I thought I'd play a little game with ya'll!  So....let's go! Let's do a game about our accomplishments in the year 2007:

1- Our Customer Service Agents, Skycaps, and Ramp Agents carefully checked and loaded how many bags in 2007?

2 - In addition to offering Positively Outrageous Service to our Customers and ensuring that our aircraft depart safely, our Ops Agents played a key role in turning how many flights in 2007?

3 - Our skilled Pilots flew how many hours and how many miles?  Also, how many times around the earth is that equivalent to?

4 - In addition to gracefully managing those seemingly unending lines at the ticket counters and gates, our Customer Service Agents sold how many tickets?

4 - How many boarding passes were issued by our Customer Service Agents?

5 -How many of our GREAT Passengers printed their boarding passes at home?  At the kiosks?

6 - Our resourceful and patient Customer Relations/Rapid Rewards Department received and handled how many telephone calls?

7 - How many Customer letters did they answer?

8 - Our efficient Cargo and Ramp Agents transported how many pounds of Cargo?

Go ahead and post your guesses and the three folks with the closest answers to ALL the questions will receive a wonderful prize from Brian's SWAg closet!

To append to my answer for #3... 1,186,000 was my guess the number of flights. Miles - 628,712,500 Hours - 1,542,125 Times around the Earth.. 13,200 #4 Clarified... I think the CSA's sold about 5 Million tickets, and issues approximately 15 million boarding passes.

I got another trivia question for ya...How much do you think Southwest is gonna have to pay in fines for safety inspection violations?
Not applicable
how much will it cost southwest in customers, business and good will. I wonder if that is why the airline cracked down on skimpy outfits--easier to blow off once the convertable top is off.... yea, i know, bad color......but, flying me in unairworthy aircraft is worse.

Brian and DS - The inspections in question were one of many routine, redundant, and overlapping inspections of our fleet. As an article from todayÃ

All these games are fun, but shouldn't you be worrying about operating the planes safely and legally instead? I'm disappointed in Southwest. You always claim a passionate commitment to safety, but that's obviously just a hill of beans.

Bud, I'm not sure where you got your facts, but you're wrong. Southwest's rate of denied boarding is certainly not out of line--in fact, we're in the lower half of the industry in terms of our denied boarding rates, with a significantly lower rate than carriers like Continental, Alaska, Airtran, Delta, United, USAirways, and Northwest. Don't believe me? Check it out on the DOT's website--or click on the link below: http://airconsumer.ost.dot.gov/reports/2008/feburary/200802atcr.pdf And, of course, besides having a relatively low DB rate, we carry more Customers than any other airline in the world. With, by far, the lowest complaint ratio of any US air carrier. So I think we're probably doing pretty well, bud. Bill
