DALLAS, June 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Southwest Airlines Co.

For the first five months of 2002, Southwest flew 18.2 billion RPMs, compared to the 18.4 billion RPMs recorded for the same period of 2001, a decrease of 1.2 percent. Available seat miles increased 4.1 percent to 28.0 billion from the 2001 level of 26.9 billion. The year-to-date load factor was 65.0 percent, compared to 68.5 percent for the same period last year.

Can't be bad

When you fly more routes and miles, and your load factor remains unchanged from last year I would say you are doing better than average in this industry in this day and age.

Lets go to Dallas!
