On Tuesday, Southwest reached a key milestone when we surpassed the 3,000-daily-flight mark. After beginning service 34 years ago with only three airplanes and three Texas cities, reaching 3,000 flights with a network stretching from coast to coast is truly an achievement to be proud of. With that many flights in the air, by the time our last flight lands out West, it's almost time to start the new day on the East Coast.

In EPT two weeks ago they reaffirmed the rumor that we will pass 4500 flights a day in the next 36 months.

With 4,500 flights a day, no one will ever be able to compete with us in the domestic market again. We are going to put all other carriers out of business.

Sounds like sarcasm. Or worse, the arrogance of youth.

Please, do everyone a favor and stop with that!

You definately don't sound representative of "SWA", and I highly doubt you work there!

Are there enough trailer parks in the US to sustain 4,500 flights a day?

I'm joking of course. A SWA captain I was jumpseating on told me one day "Everytime I take off there is an empty trailer park somewhere." Obviously he was poking fun at himself because I've seen all kinds of folks on their planes, and a lot of rich folks in Cali. You wouldn't know it from the tv show though.

What an azz. No room at major hubs, so a lot of those new flights will be at Midland Odessa. The MAF to PHL flight should be fun.

Buckaroo, If you are really a swa employee (I kinda doubt it), you need to take a chill pill and get off your high horse because we ain't immune here at SWA. Quite frankly, attitudes like yours really worries me. "Put all other carriers out of business" Puleeeze!

Any acknowledgement just encourages him. I dont really think anyone believes he's with SWA.

General,

The dude is being pompass, however, nice jab at us in whole. There is plenty to room to grow at hubs. PHL, PIT, MDW, BWI, MCO, LAS, and coming soon, DAL just to name a few. Midland, geez.

Keep up the great work SWA! You do a bang up job and have a very good system. You are always courteous when I need to j/s to home/work and your non-stop flights back to Texas to see family are always the least expensive.

Thanks, PT
