Southwest Airlines gives away Vegas Valentine


DALLAS – This Valentine’s Day, Southwest Airlines is giving one lucky blogger a Valentine’s Day gift they will never forget. The LUV Airline is awarding a free trip to Las Vegas, including roundtrip airfare on Southwest Airlines, a two-night hotel stay at The Mirage, and two tickets to The Beatles(TM) LOVE(TM) by Cirque du Soleil(R) to the blogger who submits the most popular caption for a Valentine’s Day themed-photo at

“Southwest Airlines is the LUV Airline, and love is part of our history and our Culture,” said Paula Berg, official “Blog Girl” for Southwest Airlines. “Since our blog has become a virtual meeting place for people who love Southwest Airlines, it’s a perfect place to host a Valentine’s Day contest.”

More than thirty-six years ago, Southwest Airlines took its first flight from Dallas Love Field Airport, and the airline has been playing on the “Love” theme ever since. In the 1970’s, the airline’s onboard “menu” included “Love Bites” (peanuts) and “Love Potions” (cocktails), and the cash registers that dispensed Southwest tickets were known as “Love Machines.” And, in 1975, “LUV” became the airline’s official stock symbol on the New York Stock Exchange. Today, the airline continues to “LUV” its Customers with legendary Customer Service and the best ontime performance in the industry.

“Entering the contest is easy,” said Berg. “Just visit our blog, Nuts About Southwest, for instructions on how to enter a caption. Your fellow bloggers will vote for their favorite, and we’ll announce the winner on Valentine’s Day.”
