Flashback Fridays: Keeping up with the CARdashians

By:

Our desert gold 737s have been a recognizable fixture of the skies over Texas and surrounding areas for over 43 years now.  And for a few years in the 1970s, a small fleet of compact cars painted in a similar livery were also seen around the major cities and airports we served.

Happy Work Like a Dog Day!

By:

Ashley's dog, Harper I may be a cat person, but that doesn't mean I can’t appreciate dogs and their Fun-LUVing Attitudes.  As it’s Work like a Dog Day, I thought I’d switch my cat ears for those of man’s best friend.  (Unfortunately for us cat-lovers, Work like a Cat Day couldn't exist unless work involved a long nap in the sun, and that sounds like a vacation!)... read more

Flashback Fridays: An Exclusive Speed Limit

By:

I have always wondered why the speed limit on our Corporate Campus is 18 miles per hour.  My math isn't always that great, and, initially I assumed it had something to do with a possible metric conversion or possibly some obscure city ordinance pertaining to parking lots.
