The real investigation that needs to happen is against the Minnesota Congressman James Oberstar which is who got all this negative publicity brought about in the media against Southwest Airlines.
Funny how when Northwest Airlines which is based out of Minnesota allowed ALL there aircraft mechanics to strike because the greedy management would not work with them on a fair contract, then they went and hired NON-skilled mechanics to maintain there aircraft, almost none of the maintenance problems they were having ever came out in the media, WHY IS THAT? Could it be because the Minnesota Congressman James Oberstar didn't think it was worth taking about since it was effecting the very AIrline that he has protected many other times before on other issues.
Southwest is be far the safest and best run airline in the WORLD, you don't earn a track record like they have by not doing things right.
The people that work for the media have one goal in mind and that is getting the highest RATINGS they can not nessacerally reporting the most accurate news.
I think many of us will be surprised when the full story comes out in the end, but then I dought it will ever make the news because it will show that Southwest was not at fault.
