Southwest changing its name and undoing all of its fantastic brand recognition for the sake of superstition has about the same chance as me impressing chicks at the club with my "can I park my 747 into your hangar baby?" pickup line... .......zilch.

Quoting ERJ170 (Reply 3): Quoting rj777 (Thread starter):
directions in their name
You forgot Southeast, Air South, Southern, Air Midwest, Northeastern, Atlantic Coast, etc.. so many.. all Gone..
And many others in the U.S. alone if you go back far enough. A few that come to mind:
Northeast (in addition to Northeastern)
Air West / Hughes Airwest
Chicago & Southern
Seaboard & Western (changed name in 1961 to Seaboard World)
Transcontinental & Western Air (TWA's name prior to Trans World Airlines)
Canada had many "compass point" airlines also, including:
North Canada Air (they used the marketing name "Norcanair")
Nordair ("North Air" in French)

...another airline virtually impossible to fail is WestJet in Canada. WestJet serves point to point throughout North America (..and Caribbean and Hawaii). My take is, they will be fine. Why? Inevitably, every WestJet flight will at some point in the flight, fly a bearing of West!
