This was pre-9/11, so I remember spending countless evenings in terminal 3 (airside) either sending him off or watching his airplane arrive. He exclusively took TWA, so I now have many fond memories of that red, black and white 757-200 being pushed back or pulling up to the gate, despite never having even been inside of one.

Your story doesn't make much sense.
PSA was merged into USAir in 1988.
Southwest began flight operation in 1971.
Why would PSA employees hand over their operations manuals to Southwest employees. After 17 years, Southwest's quick turn-around times and simplicity of operations was well established and they had their own FAA-approved operation manuals. Also, by 1988, Southwest wasn't such a small Texas carrier anymore; their network extended from California to the Great Lakes.
Could you explain your comment?
