    Wasn't Southwest called "Love Airlines" or something like that?

    SW Air - ticker symbol LUV.

    Same here. My first sighting at close range was in Rio (1971), while sitting at dinner with friends on my birthday, who brought along a pretty young lady...... in hot-pants.

    In my work with the defendants (at the Nuremberg Trails 1945-1949)
    I was searching for the nature of evil and I now think I have come close to defining it. A lack of empathy. Itís the one characteristic that connects all the
    defendants, a genuine incapacity to feel with their fellow men.

    Evil, I think, is the absence of empathy.Ē

    I wouldn't think that the hooters' wing:breast ratio would work for an airline.

    What was the movie that had the line: "We dont have any Pan AM coffee, but we have plenty of TWA tea"?

    I was thinking PSA, got it, same.

    It was culture shock in the mid 70ís to go from Berkeley where hot pants and miniskirts were looked down upon to an Oakland PSA flight with attendants dressed like gogo dancers. I survived somehow.

    It was Southwest; we did a case study on them at INSEAD.

    VietJet seem to have studied them closely.
