I think Herb is sitting back having a few wild turkey's pondering this one. In reality I don't think this is going to hurt SWA they will somehow take a twist with this one and probably find some marketing genius side to it...stranger things have happened.

Based on a thorough review of many factors, including fleet history and test data, as well as other inspections and maintenance previously incorporated, Boeing concluded the 10-day compliance plan was technically valid. In Boeing's opinion, the safety of the Southwest fleet was not compromised.
Doesn't matter - the FAA still has to approve the extension. If my airline wants to extend something as simple as a DMI (deferred mx item) they need approval from their FAA Prinicpal Mx Inspector, even if Boeing says it's fine.

Just making a point that those who don't know their butt from third base shouldn't post on any airline thread.

Every CA I fly with leaves the choice up to me, when there is a choice involved.

The "soon" thing will not be applicable here in another month.

Can anybody actually, seriously wish ill-will on WN?? I know that happens in the Regionals all the time, but ya'll grow up when you move on, right??

Count I: At the Regionals, the 59,791 cycles (even self-disclosed) may have resulted in $10K per.

Count II: The 1451 additional cycles would probably have been levied at the maximum $25K per (willful intent).

$ 626 million ($ 590M + $36M) makes jo's Hawaiian headache look like chump change.

This makes the WN CFO's decision very easy to write the 10M check.
