SWA accepted their first -800 today. I noticed a decal "Warrior 1" on the nose. Anyone know the story behind the name?

"Warrior Spirit" (along with "Servant's Heart" and "Fun-Luving Attitude") is one of the key headlines of how they define their corporate culture.

"Warrior" is a very common phrase used internally. It's used to mean how WN will not fail and we will all fight for survival and to be the best in the industry.

Whoa! Having Reiplinger (deceased Hawaii comic genius) flash backs! If an "Aloha One" does come to fruition, that will be the second aviation "prophecy" come to life from that man's brain! (The first being Mahalo Airlines)



Fast cars and 'Jet A' - such a sweet smell!

That would also explain the "ETOPS" markings on the wheel well doors of the said bird...

As mentioned above, we employees at WN are referred to as "warriors", so basically this aircraft is dedicated to us. She sure is a beauty, I wasn't there today but she was in the hangar Mon. night and we were all admiring the new interior. Love the led lighting.
