    Thanks for the link, Seth. I just put my thoughts on today’s news up on crankyflier.com. Basically, I think it’s still too early to know enough yet, but this is certainly a concerning sign. Why didn’t Southwest find these problems when they self-reported a year ago? It makes you wonder what else is hiding.

    I agree that it is early, but certainly the fact that they took so long to fix it is a bad sign. It is one thing to notice a problem and then resolve it while sweeping the evidence under the rug. It is quite another to just sweep evidence of the problems under the rug without actually resolving them. Ultimately that should be what people look at in evaluating them, though we all know what should happen and what does happen are often two different things.
