Are they setting up for a presser right now? It's 2:35PM CST now. (3:35 CDT)

Although it's after 10 HST (they don't have daylight time), so I'm not sure what was originally published. It would probably be HST or CDT, not CST.

Or if *anything* was published...

Actually, it was 3:30pm your time, not 2pm. 2pm is MST.

So quiet. Maybe there won't be an announcement today.

Conference continues tomorrow. Maybe they like free publicity.

It was 3:35 CDT, 2:35 CST, 2:35 MDT, 1:35 MST.

It seems more plausible that Southwest would announce a press conference in CDT, since that's where Dallas is and everybody in the Central time zone uses Daylight time.

If they announced it as HST, well that would be purposely releasing the cat from the bag...

Not to rain on anyone's parade but I wouldn't put too much stake in station decorations as a sign of anything. I believe this week is Spirit week at WN and stations typically use themed decorations to compete and celebrate. Could just be a weird coincidence that LAX chose a "tropical" theme.

You are absolutely right, reading a post from another forum this week is Spirit Week @ SWA, with today being Hawaii theme day. What a coincidence!

That can't be right. Everybody knows that Friday is Hawaiian shirt day.

The opening session tomorrow for GTS Hawaii is "Critical Access: The State of Air Service", so surely before or during that something will be announced...
