If not tonight, it could come by the end of the week. There has been speculation as the when it will be announced. I've heard Tuesday, Friday, anytime within an 11 day period ending this week, or by next fall.
Either way, if it's tonight it won't happen until 6:30-9:30 central time as stated above. And unless an employee that attends the Message comes on this board and announces the big news to everyone, you may not hear anything right away.
ALL views, opinions expressed are mine ONLY and are NOT representative of those shared by Southwest Airlines Co.

Could this be the "big" news?
After only a month on the job, retired Southwest CFO John Denison has been
appointed CEO at ATA. Denison was hired upon the recommendation of Southwest to make certain ATA was not only a good code share partner, but worthy of the LUV money being lent in Chapter 11.

um, appointing a retired CFO to a the CEO position of a company that you have code shar with and have purchased slots from isn't exactly earth shattering in the sense that "I will remember where I was when I heard the news!". It's got to be something bigger than that.
Doubt it...it was all over the wires several days ago... WN could have kept a better secret if this was it...If that is the major news, I'm even more disappointed than if them adding a city had been the news...

The pilot off of our inbound flight a moment ago said the "news" is that US Air and United either lost their mail contracts or that they quit their contracts and that WN is going to be carrying the mail from those contracts but that is still just a rumor until I hear "official" word.
My views are mine, and are not the views of Southwest Airlines. The opposite lately!

Hey called someone who spoke to the person who was there....there is NO big announcement. Someone even stood up and ask what the big news was and was told there is no big news. What a hoax and a huge rumor.
