Class Act by Southwest Airlines saying thanks

Wow another class act by the mighty little airline that could based in Dallas, Texas. Give Credit Where Credit is Due.

Go to http://setlovefree.com/

You will see a form on the left to enter your US Zip code to Thank Congress for SETTING LOVE FREE. Its been up for several months already.

Thats class!


Lot to learn from giving credit where credit is due. Some learn the hard way.

That is nice to see.

I took the extra 5 minutes to say a thank you to my senators and local reps.

For those that was glad to see Wright go away please take the time too!

What is classy about it? I don't understand.

Good business? Yes. Classy? Why?

Now if only all the gates at Love were returned to their original owners who gave them up when they were instructed to move to DFW. Maybe the government should be paying the airlines some money for changing the rules on them.

Giving credit where credit is due. Not only sound business but an admirable skill (definition of class).

That'd be kind of tough since Braniff held most of the gates at Love.

That isn't really the definition of class.

Class would be wishing your competitors luck and offering them some gate space to compete on a better playing field, as stated above.
