I would like to thank Leah, Kim, Francisco for their frequent post. We also should thank Gary Kelly and Bill Owens for covering those hot topics such as assigned seating or when will the schedule change. Also a nod out to the always informative entrys by Ray Stark, James Malone, Susie Boersma and Bert Stevens. Of course we must thank Jill for her jokes and Mary for her funny posts and all the other people who make this blog interesting. Which would mean a thank you also to Kyla Ebbert, who I thought made for very interesting reading. Brian, I am sure you gave a much better acceptance speech. But I guess I just felt the need to write one.

Congrats! I've always thought that the Nuts about SW blog to be one of the best (or I guess now the best) example of a company blog.

Great party Leah!!!! But you forgot the T-shirt. It can't be a SW blow-out without a T-shirt. Brian, what's the shirt look like for this one? Can you post a picture?

Congratulations Southwest, your hard work, and your contributions are just outstanding. We really appreciate what you do for us. The lowest fares out there, allowing us to fly more, for less. I would personally like to thank you so much for what you do. - Josh

Brian, Were you at a loss for words? WE WON was hardly a paragraph. C'mon... tell us more! You're allowed to Toot Your Horn here! I heard the competition was rather stiff and your SWA team beat out some very large companies! Wow! I love the communication shared by everyone. From the facts to the humor...to the touchy subjects. You print it all with honesty. Thank you! I guess this award means... now they won't fire you! Ha ha... I'm kidding. I had to throw that in! Congratulations to all of you! You are all LUVed. Kelli

WE ARE THRILLED TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR "BOARDING STRUCTURE" . AFTER FLYING LAST WEEK FROM SAN DIEGO TO HOUSTON, AND SEEING THIS "VERY RUDE OLD MAN" CUT IN FRONT OF EVERYONE IN LINE, WE ARE COUNTING THE DAYS......AT LEAST 3 VERY NICE ADULTS (INCLUDES ME) NICELY ASKED HIM TO GO TO THE END OF THE LINE, AND HIS RESPONSE WAS "I'M STANDING HERE AND I'M NOT MOVING!"...I PERSONALLY TOLD HIM I COULDN'T BELIEVE THAT HE WOULD DO WHAT HE DID, AND THOUGHT IT WAS RUDE.......IT DIDN'T MATTER, HE LOOKED STRAIGHT AHEAD AND SAID HE WASN'T MOVING......NOW, I POLITELY TOLD HIM "HE SHOULD HAVE HUNG HIS HEAD DOWN IN SHAME, OR BETTER YET, MOVE TO THE END OF THE ALREADY LONG LINE WITH THOSE WHO CAME TO THE AIRPORT EARLY LIKE WE DID AND TAKEN HIS PLACE IN LINE...........WE TEACH OUR CHILDREN TO DO THE RIGHT THING, LEAD BY EXAMPLE AND ALWAYS BE NICE TO ONE ANOTHER.......THEN WE AS PARENTS COME ACROSS THOSE WHOM FOR SOME REASON THINK THEY "ARE OWED" BECAUSE THEY HAVE LIVED ON THIS EARTH LONGER THEN WE...........THAT ISN'T RIGHT.........SO, WE ARE THRILLED AT YOUR SOON TO BE NEW BOARDING PROCEDURES AND THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR LISTENING TO MANY OF US TO DO A CHANGE THAT WOULD MAKE THE BOARDING PROCEDURES MORE PLEASANT.....YAHOOOOOO...NOW THERE WILL BE NO EXCUSES FOR THIS MAN AND MANY LIKE HIM...THEY'LL HAVE TO STAND IN ORDER COME NOVEMBER.....

FLYING IS STRESSFUL ENOUGH SO WHY NOT HELP TO MAKE IT PLEASANT.......... I'M REMINDED OF "DOUG" WHO WORKS IN YOUR FF CUSTOMER SERVICE IN DALLAS WHO HAS ALWAYS BEEN PLEASANT, AND MAKED ME FEEL AS THOUGH I MATTERERED......I ONLY SPOKE WITH HIM TWICE, WROTE A LETTER ABOUT HIM, BECAUSE IN LIFE, WE ONLY REMEMBER TWO KINDS OF SITUATION..........THE POSITIVE AND THE NEGATIVE........I WANT TO FLY OUT (AND WE FLY OUT ALOT) WITH A POSITIVE DURING THE LEAVING TRANSITION, SO, IS THERE A PLACE I COULD APPLY FOR ONE OF THEIR JOBS??????????????????
