Any idea when WN will open the rest of 2020? (was: WA)

Hi regular SWA fliers,

They usually open Nov. and Dec about now right? I know circumstances are unprecedented and opening any new schedule will take tons of more work. But I'm optimistic we will be able to travel again on whatever the new normal reality is by the late Fall.

I have to hold on to this hope, MGM is giving away rooms in Vegas and I want my $49 fare on SWA to get there!

Stay Healthy,

Paul

At least it doesn't say SW -- Fly to Namibia - Air Namibia - Carrying the Spirit of Namibia

I wonder how many people think SW is the right ID and how many have no idea what WN is?

I post on a few other sites and whenever I use WN - there is always a followup comment about "what is WN?" LOL

I try to use Southwest or SWA sometimes.

I generally use Southwest but have been trending to SWA I never use WN, and the people who complain about people using SW are just being petty, to prove their own superiority. It's not like Air Namibia's 10 planes are making it hard to tell the difference, although they apparently have or at least had permission to fly to the US, but don't currently do so. BTW the airline goes back to 1946 and South West Air Transport (SWAT) which though lots of changes later became Air Namibia.

I am really tired of people who complain about people who use SW to refer to our airline.

In earlier commercials, Wally Bird had a cigarette on a plane.

"Western Airlines. The ONLY way to fly!" was their motto. Free champagne on every flight poured by the "stewardess" (a "flight attendant", in those days, would have been working at in a bird park show).

And, of course, the Horizon Club....Western's private lounges with open bar, snacks, interesting celebrity sightings at LAX, and an escort to your plane for early boarding in smaller stations.

They also had the first (?) frequent flyer promotion BEFORE there were programs. Fly two round-trip flights and get a coupon good for a round trip, anywhere in the system, for $100(?? - it has been about 38 years, so my memory is hazy). I did one business trip and my first (and only?) mileage run (LAX-SAN for about $50). Then I flew to Alaska for my promo flight.

I don't remember that promotion. They did have a relatively inexpensive "triangle fare" for a flight from San Francisco to Anchorage, then to Honolulu, and back to SFO.

Also, I think AA had the first frequent flyer program. My father was a member of the "Admiral's Club" and it was by invitation only after being a frequent AA traveler. Later, if my memory serves me correctly, this was found to violate the equal rights amendment since nearly 100% of the members were white males. It was a different time.

Oh, and I think Western Airlines code was WA not WN.
