Back in March, CNN
and The Wall Street Journal
profiled David Holmes, at right, otherwise known as the rapping Southwest Airlines flight attendant
-- and one of the stars of Saturday night's SWA employee banquet at the downtown Sheraton, where, from all appearances
, the airline spent far more than peanuts despite last week's notes of caution
concerning an expected drop in June revenues for the Dallas-based carrier. (Among the featured performers: an American Idol
and Saturday Night Live's "Weekend Update" anchor Seth Meyers
.) The video of Holmes's appearance Saturday night follows.
