             Southwest Airlines Pilots Earn 3 Percent Raise
                    Due to Company Profitability
(DALLAS) Today the Southwest Airlines Pilots’ Association (SWAPA) received official notice from
the Company that the negotiated profitability-based raise in the pilots’ contract has earned them a
3 percent raise for 2010. Originally valued during contract negotiations as a likely zero percent
raise due to the economy and Company performance at the time, this wage increase arrives as a
minor surprise and a sign of a changing economic climate.

Following is a statement from Capt. Carl Kuwitzky, SWAPA President:

“This raise is good news for both our pilot group and Southwest Airlines. The pilots have been
willing to tie our pay increases to the success of Southwest Airlines. Our pilots showed great
leadership and confidence in our Company and we are excited about a future with an improving
economy which allows our Company to maintain its profitability. The pilots, like all Southwest
employees, hope that positive announcements such as the one from the Company today signals an
end to difficult times and portends a bright, growth-filled future ahead.”
