Really? I mean.... ew

Why does Southwest think that marketing itself as a) cheap and b) promiscuous ('a little black book of all the cities we've "dated"' is 'a lot of ink' and 'filled up three of these this month already ' - oh, c'mon) is making them seem attractive? What kind of customers are they after, anyway?

Remember that airline commercial in the '70s -- National, if memory serves -- that closed with a stewardess (back when flight attendants were standardly single females) inviting viewers to "Fly me"?

Plus ça change, plus la même.

Yeah, but both of those implicitly promised you the woman. This campaign brags about sleeping around.

There's an implication that the "Fly me" stewardess is not likely still chaste ;-)

Though chased, perhaps.
