"The whole world will be looking up on April 8, and we're over the moon to leverage our place in the sky by extending an opportunity to observe this phenomenon on several Southwest flights in the path of the eclipse," noted Julia Melle, Director of Brand and Content for Southwest Airlines.

“We have network and schedule planners, and they determined the Southwest flights that have the greatest likelihood of offering customers on board the best view,” Melle told AdWeek.

Meanwhile, Omni Hotels and Resorts Director of Brand Management and Marketing Colleen Buckley highlighted the significance of experiences and hospitality in their partnership with Southwest.

"Our partnership with Southwest Airlines allows us to share Omni's genuine hospitality and connect with their customers through the Solarbration sweepstakes," Buckley concluded.
