BECAUSE THEY OPERATE THE MOST FUEL EFFICIENT FLEET OF AC/SEAT IN THE WORLD AND OPERATE THEM 12-13 HOURS/DAY!
Funny, that's exactly what Dave Barger was saying about Jetblue in the beginnning of the year. Make no mistake, SWA made money last quarter for one reason...fuel hedging. 95 cents avg cost per gallon. vs well over 1.50 for Jetblue, for instance.
