Southwest Airlines is Here to Say - It's NEA's 'Read Across America' Day!

DALLAS, March 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV) is taking Seuss-style rhymes to the skies to help the National Education Association (NEA) promote and commemorate reading, learning, and community in celebration of NEA's Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss' birthday.

"Every year on NEA's Read Across America Day, the imaginations of children across the country are ignited when they open up a good book," said NEA President Dennis Van Roekel. "NEA is pleased to join with Southwest Airlines to promote the importance of reading in school, at home, or inflight. NEA's Read Across America brings students, parents, educators, and the entire community together to share the joy of reading."

Southwest Customers have long enjoyed the carrier's entertaining inflight announcements. Customers flying on March 2 and March 3 may experience some extra rhymes in the skies as rhyme-time commences on select flights. Flight Attendants have been encouraged to wear Seuss-style flair and to deliver their pre-flight announcements in Seussical rhyme. Younger Customers will be invited to read Dr. Seuss stories over the PA on select flights.

Saturday, March 3, Southwest will launch a rhyming Twitter contest to see which @SouthwestAir follower tweets the best rhyme about Southwest Airlines for a chance to win four roundtrip tickets on Southwest Airlines.
