I was on an incredible flight from Midland to Luv, flight 2099, on December 29th, I was seated in row 12 on the left side of the plane. In front of me was a guy and a girl, and another girl. About 30 minutes into the flight the guy (Russell) got up and walked to the front of the plane. The long and the short he proposed to the yound lady that was sitting in front of me (Nicole). He asked her to come forward, down on one knee, and asked if she would marry him. There was tumulterous clapping and shouting, Nicole was a bright red color and throughly embarrassed. Above the noise I could not hear if she accepted. Shortly after the pilot came on and offerred his congrats for the new couple. Russell works for SWA and lives in Midland while Nicole lives in Tulsa, they met on a SWA flight. Russell said from that first flight he knew that he wanted to marry her. I have flown for many years but I have never seen all the flight attendants crying at one time, numerous camera flashing. My congrats to the couple, long life and many wonderful years ahead.

I flew in from Midland on SWA 43, flight continued to Houston, next door at LUV was a tri color ed737 700 with Southwest airlines. I thought how odd, after several hours of research and looking at registration numbers, I realized it was a Ford Motor company selling of two 737 700 to SWA. I was fearful I was losing my mind, because often you will see a Whale, or the old SWA livery colors. Really neat, made my day.
