    Interesting that other airlines aren't seeing a need to ground any of their 737's.:confused:

    Probably going to see the same thing with Southwest that American saw a couple of years ago. Not a flat-out grounding of the entire fleet, but the equivalent of a "rolling blackout." Maybe a "rolling grounding of the fleet" is more appropriate. United, with their $150 stand-by fee thing for Southwest refugees, knows what's going on.

    Some people won't fly Southwest because of the "cattle call" nature of their service. When holes are popping up in the middle of their flights, getting fined for bumping passengers, and more importantly fined for safety issues, that's enough for me to stick with another airline.
