Decision Maker Response

Southwest Airlines’s response

Jan 9, 2014 — Southwest has a longstanding relationship with SeaWorld that is based on travel and bringing families together. We are currently in a multi-year contract with SeaWorld, and we are not contemplating changes to that at this time. We are engaged with SeaWorld related to the recent concerns being raised. We are in a listening and education mode with the goal of upholding our commitments as a good corporate citizen.

Thank you for engaging with us and for your patience; it is our responsibility and obligation to fully evaluate the issue with all our Stakeholders.
