I would imagine that if a person bought a ticket with a credit card (most of people probably do), they could electronically figure out the day of flight and which tails were flown using the maintenance logs. Of course, as it already has been said, SWA might not have to prove anything -- they'll probably settle this out of court.

New question. Isn't the PIC responsible if he/she flies an airplane that isn't air worthy? I only bring this up because of sutuations that I know of at other carriers. On one such instance, an airplane was missing a required fire bottle and the FAA went after all of the pilots that had flown the aircraft.

Just curious if the pilots could not possibly be wrapped up into this. This is going to spell trouble for ALL airlines, not just SWA.
