Southwest Airlines Billboards

Tue Feb 03, 2004 10:16 am

Yesterday, I was driving into the Phoenix Airport, and noticed the
SouthWest billboards. (I've seen them manymany times, but havent' really kept track of all of them)
Their tag lines were.
"RENO REPEATEDLTY"
"SKEEDADDLE TO SEATTLE"
What are some of the others that are commonplace around the country?

Jacksonville has "D.C. A.S.A.P." advertising Baltimore service plus a southwest.com billboard on the opposite side of the road (at the entrance to the airport).

In Baltimore, I've seen: "Hartford in a Hop." I've seen a bunch of others related to ORF, RDU, and ALB, but can't remember them offhand.

In Irving, Texas, along Route 183 by Texas Stadium: "If we didn't exist, would low fares?" A good question, that.

I guess that $109 PAH-JAX round trip isn't low....

There are quite a number of them on Mockingbird Lane near DAL. Unfortunately, I can't think of any of them off hand. I remember that destinations such as Albuquerque, San Antonio, and New Orleans ammon others, had billboards.

The "D.C. A.S.A.P." billboard is also on our MSY access road.

They have at least one of those "D.C A.S.A.P." billboards around IND. Can not remember any others they have had around here.

"D. C. ASAP" is in PVD as well. They have one for MDW and Florida as well, but can't remember the phrase they used.

"Juicy Deals to Florida" and "Nashville for a Song" are two that I saw in PVD back in the day. They had/have a rotating billboard there that showed about three different Southwest ads alongside the airport connector road off of I-95.

The road into Dallas Love Field is lined with Southwest billboards - many of them haven't changed since I was a little kid (except to convert the Southwest logo and font.)

"Byte-Sized Fares" - the huge billboard at Mockinbird and Cedar Springs
"Hobby Horse" (referring to Houston)
"Oklahoma and Back Homa"
"Tulsa Times"
"Albuquickly"
"El Paso Pronto"
"Love Is Still Our Field" - right at the airport entrance

Jamie,

Thanks for your list. I do remember the ELP and ABQ ones now that you've posted them. I'm thinking there was an MSY one, as well, at DAL. I was looking for a picture I took of it a couple of years ago, and (surprise) I can't find it. I'm thinking it mentioned something to do with gumbo. Sound familiar?

Tom, would you be referring to "Gumbo Jets" by any chance?  Smile I think they had those in the HOU area.

PS - I was at the Hornets game last night also. Not pretty.

AUS has one that says "Phoenix for Peanuts"

LBB has one that is usually up during football season, "More Dallas Touchdowns"
"Lose" is not spelled with two o's!!!!
