Huh???? No rich grandparents out there???. Where the Christ hell did that comment come from? 7000 flights in the air at same time... that is called options. Reseach house downgraded a stock. This is not the funeral of Mr. Rogers. Something like 40% people under 28 living at home. Who has the money here???

I think things will only get worse with the high price of jet fuel! Maybe our overpaid socialist government officials can take a pay cut, and pass the savings on to the working class.

You are incoherent idiot. Has nothing do with with jet fuel cost or ALL AIRLINES WOULD BE DOWNGRADED. It is stock pick. Delta had huge quarter. There are many factors that go into evaluating a stock....all are beyond you. Multiple choice quiz: Who said" From each according to their ability...to each according to their need."
1) Karl Marx..2) Leon Trotsky. Neither of their busts are next to Washington Mounment. You do not know the difference between socialism, democracy, communism, banana republic, and your ass.

Yes, and all Mitt Romney needs to do is pick an IDIOT to run on the GOP ticket with him, say Rick Santorum or Michele Bachmann and you have handed ANOTHER 4 years of this nations leadership to Obama! Stop bitching and start cleaning up YOUR own party of the clowns you have paraded in front of the American voters! The GOP choices....yeah...so great. NOT! IDIOT! The GOP is just as much to blame as the give it away Demorats!

If you're a frequent flyer, as I am, you will appreciate that regardless of the increase in ticket prices, Southwest allows free flight changes and checked baggage, which is much more preferential over paying an extra hundo.

Wow, Southwest has more than 10,000 VP's? Did you know that of all airlines Southwest has the lowest Management to Labor ratio? Even further, they have the lowest paid Management and the highest paid Rampers?

OR 3) JESUS!

Actually the concept comes from the BIBLE. Specifically from the Acts of the Apostles 4:32-35. "There was no needy person among them for those who owned property or houses would sell them, bring the proceeds of the sale and put them at the feet of the apostles, AND THEY WERE DISTRIBUTED TO EACH ACCORDING TO HIS NEEDS"

Yes, Jesus was a commie socialist! Not to mention, a JEW!

Another literal Bible thumper. The Bible is a book a fiction.. like Grimm's Fairy Tales, Three Musketeers and any other adventure story. Anyone who thinks otherwise is deluding themselves...but that is what "religion" is there

figure of speech "not you", they're goin the way of the so called big guys, gettin to top heavy in mngmt, trust me the downfall is coming. To many people who don't know the job are makin decision's, wait till ATL open's their freight facility-on time departure will be a fantasy. And if AT emps win arbitration for seniority forget it. Maybe you didn't notice but when H&C left so did alot of the other "old guard", they knew what was comin.

Times change. Your business model has to change as well. To quote Herb "You change or you die." Even he has said that Gary has been the best leader for times we have been in. As far as ATL goes, the same thing was said when SWA started flying coast to coast, into busier airports and places without great weather all the time. I do belive SWA is posting the best on time performance ever for them so far this year.

mdw rat has a burr in his saddle about something, but he still doesn't know what he is talking about.

People have been predicting Southwest's demise since before their first flight. They are still the best airline going, and they are still doing an awful lot of things right.

Of course they would be downgraded.
If your business model is taking federal and state welfare checks from the negros and filling your airplanes full of negros and illegal aliens and transporting them from one getto city to the next.
Of course your revenues are going to be low.
Duh!
