Southwest profits spike despite 737 Max groundings


The Associated Press - October 24, 2019

DALLAS - Southwest Airlines is muscling through the grounding of its Boeing 737 Max aircraft fleet, reporting a 7% jump in profits and record operating revenue.

Southwest had more Max jets than any airline when the plane was grounded in March after crashes involving other carriers in Indonesia and Ethiopia killed 346 people.

Strong travel demand and rising ticket prices helped offset its Boeing issues.

On Thursday, Southwest Airlines Co. reported third-quarter profit of $659 million, or $1.23 per share. That easily topped Wall Street expectations for $1.09, according to a survey by Zacks Investment Research.

Revenue of $5.64 billion was in line with expectations.
