Boeing 737 Southwest Airlines takes off from McCarran International Airport

Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE:LUV) is navigating through a tumultuous year, reminiscent of what Queen Elizabeth II described as an “annus horribilis” in 1992 for the royal family. Southwest’s challenges began before the end of 2022, with a mix of self-inflicted and unforeseen issues. However, the airline is handling these difficulties with grace, much like the British monarch.

Truth be told, the 2020s have not been kind to Southwest Airlines. Celebrating its 50th anniversary during the global COVID-19 pandemic has presented numerous obstacles for the company. As the U.S. airline industry enters earnings season and provides end-of-year guidance, it is crucial to assess Southwest’s current challenges and prospects for recovery.
