    A press conference in Dallas with execs from Boeing (BA +2.2%) and Southwest Airlines (LUV +0.9%) over their blockbuster 737 MAX deal just concluded as the firms keep the LUV-fest between the two firms percolating. Highlights from Southwest CEO Gary Kelly: "One of the main challenges we face are high fuel costs and we are very much in need of new technology to reduce the fuel burn...for the near term we are not changing our fleet strategy...we will have flexibility in the future to manage our retirements and options that we can grow our fleet."
