Southwest Cargo proudly shepherds crawdaddies across the country so you can enjoy them fresh, but Louisiana Crawfish Company does the heaviest of the lifting. Check out their operation and why we're proud to call each other Family.

As a U.S. Army veteran, I was recently given the opportunity to share the story of my transition from the military to Southwest Airlines in G.I. Jobs Magazine. The reporter needed photos to accompany the article, so I asked a Pilot to join me in an "action" photo.  This is where the story takes an interesting twist.

A better airport experience for air travelers is a priority for both Southwest Airlines and the TSA. As such, we worked with our friends at the TSA to create the following post with information that can help make your summer travel easier.

 

As many frequent travelers know, TSA Pre✓® offers expedited security screening for trusted travelers at airports nationwide. With a TSA Pre✓® Known Traveler Number documented in a reservation, Customers receive a TSA Pre✓® designation on their boarding document and enjoy all the benefits of a more efficient security check point experience. With TSA Pre✓®, Customers breeze through security lines without removing shoes, belts, laptops, liquids, and light jackets. Aside from creating a better travel experience, it also ensures a safer air travel system for our nation.

One of the highlights of my career at Southwest happened 25 years ago today, when I played the role of ring announcer for Malice in Dallas.  Instead of taking a dispute over the slogan Just Plane Smart to a courtroom, Herb agreed with Stevens Aviation chairman Kurt Herwald to settle their differences in a wrestling rink.  It took place at the Dallas Sportatorium, which although once a fixture in the pro wrestling circuit of the 80s and 90s, had probably never held a louder crowd.
