    Thumbs up WN Turns Fifty!

    Fifty years ago (June 18, 1971) Southwest (737-200) makes its first flight DAL-SAT, fares were $20 and the "stewardesses" wore "hot pants" and knee-high "go-go boots".

    Happy Birthday Southwest!

    And now to the number one question asked about Southwest: Why is Southwest's code WN?
    Well I talked to a few people and we came up with - Texas/country music/Willie Nelson maybe
