    Trademark infringement?

  2. Grammar Police says:

    Cashing in at a time when fuel prices are up and ticket sales are down. This is still America, isn’t it?

  3. SWpants! says:

    Bring back the hot pants and watch sales increase. Now, that is a stimulus plan ; )

    I’d pay good money for A Gentleman’s Flying Experience.

    That’d get my tray-table in its upright, locked position!

    I applied for the job of official women’s clothing inspector for SWA — have not yet heard back.

    I think I’ll sit in the forward cabin…maybe around row 3 or 4…in a port-side window seat.

    The abberation was kicking off a scantily clad woman. This is more like the real Southwest making a comeback. You remember that Southwest: hot pants, free 1/5s of whiskey during a fare war, etc..

    @Dave Moore.

    You have no idea how bad I want to be Tony Stark… and not for the metal suit either.

    @Dallasite: I actually live inside the “Iron Man” movie. Don’t tell my wife. Well, she knows.
