You know, if you went back about 20 months on here I think you would find a post where I suggested that Southwest Airlines Co keep the -200s, and reduce the seating capacity to 56, and let 'er rip from Love Field.
Yes, you could do it with -500s.

If they are just announcing it to the employees, couldn't it be something more employee related....like something about profitsharing or stock or vacation time or a bonus or something like that.

Yeah, I was the one oddball from BWI who jumped up when Colleen was seeing who all was there.
|Quoting Wjcandee (reply 150):|
Also, Colleen, Herb and Gary all exercised options or sold shares in the past 30 days; if they knew about the potential offer, they would probably have been advised against doing so, although under some circumstances they could do so.
|Quoting Cactus739 (reply 159):|
Doesn't Southwest usually make their major announcements on Thursdays?
|Quoting CasInterest (reply 165):|
Especially since the announcement is in Chicago, I think they are going to make a point of letting people know that they can now get to all of the remaining ATA destinations by changing in Chicago.

Rumor has it new hire training at SWA is slowing down pending an announcment by Exxon-Mobile to make an offer to buy SWA. $80 a share for the preferred stock. SWA would be in the neighborhood of $1-$2.5 billion a year in profits. This is assuming scheduled service as it exists now with fuel being lowered to approx 45 cents per gallon of Jet A. (exxon-mobile cost of production)
All existing SWA management would stay in tack and it would result in $10-$15 billion cash infusion to fuel growth and expansion globally with SWA service. Common stock is predicted to trade in the $35-$45 range if this in announced. (lots of early retirements)

No, wait - I have it.
WN is buying Greyhound and operating them as "Southwest Express," repainting the buses in canyon blue and orange.

>>>They are bringing back the 737-200 and making it only be 56 seats and flying them as business club seats for the special business customers, and fly them out of DFW!!
Did you mean DAL Love? If you're flying out of DFW, you wouldn't need to limit to 56 seats...
