Southwest Airlines hopes to take a bite out of Delta Air Lines' Atlanta market share as it begins offering service there Feb. 12 following its purchase of AirTran last year. Southwest plans to attract customers with its low fares, lack of baggage fees and cultivation of an image that it is simply more fun to fly than other airlines. "What's different about Southwest? Our legendary customer service, our low fares -- all of that showcased by the people who make a real connection with our customers," Southwest spokesman Brad Hawkins said.
AT&T has made its range of U-verse services available to customers in central Arkansas, including cities such as Little Rock, North Little Rock and Benton. The services include U-verse TV, as well as U-verse High-Speed Internet and U-verse Voice.
Customers of AT&T's U-verse TV service in San Antonio will be able to upload photos to the flickr.com Web site and watch them on their sets as part of the company's addition of more interactive features. The new options also allow subscribers to create a customized menu option to receive weather, sports and stock reports, check the local business phone directory on their TVs and play games from Yahoo!
