The first time the company was engaged in air transportation between the three cities in south Texas on three planes. The company managed to save on everything, even on embarkation time. Already after a couple of years, all the innovations began to bring a stable income of the company owners. In what were these innovations and why they were allowed to save on flights?
Firstly, it is a choice airport. The rate is not on the main, and secondary airports. This allowed us to reduce ticket prices and thereby pose a serious competitor to other carriers.
During all the years the airline Southwest Airlines has not committed any fatal accident.
Second, the authors of the new ideas developed its own model of reduction in fuel prices. To this end, analysts engaged in that constantly studied aviation fuel market following the jumps and falling prices and buy fuel only in those periods when the price fell as much as possible.

Thirdly, the company is, of course, does not provide a variety of services that get customers to other airlines. But most of the passengers are not able to pay for them, and are often forced to give up flying on airplanes. Southwest Airlines does not provide opportunity to its customers to purchase tickets through internet portals. The cabin of the company are equipped with the minimum and the menu is not very diverse. But these temporary inconveniences offset by lower ticket prices.

Passenger service on board is not quite normal, as well, and all the activities of the company. For example, all offers for flight attendants passengers recite and sing. In January 2005, the flight attendants greeted morning flight passengers in pajamas - this was the last day of the plane crash Boeing 737-200.
All this is not an indication of lack of professionalism of the company employees. The high quality of the work of pilots and maintenance personnel is demonstrated by the fact that for all the years the airline Southwest Airlines has not committed any fatal accident.
