Recently, we held a contest where we encouraged our Customers to submit a DING! headline. We received around 30,000 entries, and many inquiring minds have been waiting for the winners to be announced.... ....drum roll please!


GRAND Prize Winners:

Joyce C. - Freedom is calling from the skies above! Choose one of our great deals and fall madly in LUV!

Patrick C. – Mondays are manic, but don’t you panic…..DING! has specials from the Pacific to the Atlantic


First Place Winners:

Pat N. – With this DING!, I thee fled.

Kimberly W. – Our prices are great! Our prices are low! Book with us, where you want to go!


Second Place Winner

Lisa E. – DING! today, Gone tomorrow! DING! fares are so cheap, you won’t have to borrow!

Wondering if we store all those fun headlines somewhere? We do! There is an actual DING! database that our very own software engineers built to grab the headlines for each DING!


Some of my favorites are:

-Gas prices are high. It's no joke! Fly on Southwest to avoid going broke

-Roses are red, violets are blue, there's a DING! offer waiting for you

-Feeling desperate? Need to get away? Check out these DING! fares, no need for dismay.

-Need to take a break? Need a place to go? Let Southwest take you to and fro.

-It's Friday afternoon. Your work is almost done. DING! fares have been released. And the fun has just begun.


Congrats to our creative winners, and if you don't have DING!, you better get that thing.

I Luv openiing up Ding! to see what cute headline will pop up. It's always a surprise. Congrats to the winners! Will any of the other non-winners phrases be used by chance?
We would like a mobile Ding! Many of us are out and about all day, or can't install Ding at work. Send us a text or email with a link to the same page, or a mobile friendly page. :-)
Hi Megan, Yes, we are planning to use the winners and non-winners for our future DINGs!
Hi "anonymous" Thank you for your suggestion, we are always looking to our Customers for ideas on improvement. I will forward this on to our DING! experts here at southwest.com. : )
Hi I am Ryan! any chance of the Philadelphia to west palm flights for June 21 going down to 59 or 79 dollars!!

Hi I am new to this blog and I travel every week from Nashville,TN to Austin,TX. Is there anyway where I can get good deals in tickets. pl let us know. Regards Balla
These are so dumb , they suck.If these are by Middle school students I think they are great but if these are written by grown ups, they need to be more creative.
So -- you are an adult -- insulting the writing skills of others -- and the best adjective you can fathom is "suck"! I appreciate Southwest Airlines and their dedicated employees. Their highly competetive fares have allowed me, and countless others, to make cross-country trips to visit family and friends who would otherwise be relegated to reading emails and engaging in telephonic communication. I especially enjoy the free, on-board entertainment by motivated employees who are both creative and talented! Thank you Southwest -- YOU'RE THE BEST!

Ditto on the Mobile DING -- I can't install DING on my office computer and by the time I get home (12 hour days are common), all the DING sales are over! But I do love that I can check flight status on my Blackberry.
Ding used to mean something. Now, ding prices are higher than most travel websites so why bother.
Any luck on a mobile DING? That would be great... Thanks, CC
Hi South West Airlines. i am taking a bit of a flyer here, but does anyone know if South West have any 737 scrap Thottle Quadrants like the one here http://www.737throttle.com. i am hoping that with 30000 entries to your competition onw will be an aircraft engineer. many thanks
My wife thought I should send the "fares on the ground" suggestion.
