Yes indeed it is true: I read the same article as Workbench. However, he failed to tell you everything. Southwest also has plans to acquire up to 4 747-400s to fly the Lubbuck-Amarillo-Tokyo route. They are also implementing a code share partnership with Saudia. By fall 2000, they hope to have rights for the ever so popular Nashville Riyadh-Dharain route ... isnt that right Workbench? :PPP!
All kidding aside: I think Workbench was reading the Enquirer! Souithwest with a 757? HAH! Now that's funny
