On Dec. 17, Southwest Airlines posted a teaser on its “Nuts About Southwest” blog:
Could it be? Yes, it could.
Something’s coming, something good,
If I can wait………
Something’s coming, I don’t know what it is,
But it is
Gonna be great!
And since Dec. 17 FlyerTalkers have been trying to guess what this could possibly mean.
Something to do with the upcoming expiration of the Wright Amendment? Probably not. That doesn’t happen until October and the Southwest tease is in relation to the airline not releasing it’s route schedule from June through August 2014, as it usually would at this time.
Southwest flights to Hawaii? Perhaps.
International routes? Possibly.
Assigned seats? A revamped loyalty program? Space flight ala Virgin Atlantic? Highly unlikely.
I suppose we’ll have just to wait and see. But in the meantime the guessing is certainly an enjoyable distraction – especially now that we have passed the point of shaking wrapped presents and guessing at the contents therein.
