43 for 43: Celebrate Southwest’s 43rd Birthday

Today at Southwest Airlines, we’re celebrating our 43rd birthday, and we couldn’t be more excited!  This milestone marks another year of bringing our Customers the highest quality of Service, delivered with lots of LUV!  Over the years, we’ve adapted to the ever-changing airline industry and stayed true to our Company Spirit, conquering numerous fare wars and, of course, the Wright Amendment.  From our legendary vintage Flight Attendant hot pants to our famous peanuts, we've gathered 43 things that symbolize Southwest.
