Easy, there, Charlie. This site was built by GSD&M in Austin, and 
they're pretty good at what they do. The site is built with .NET, but 
GSD&M is probably a mixed environment of Macs (for the designers) and 
Windows PCs (for the web developers). The Southwest site has surely been 
tested on both of those platforms, in multiple browsers. And if the site 
has been tested in both mozilla and webkit browsers on those platforms, 
then surely it is the fault of Google and the Mozilla Corp. that it 
doesn't work on linux.

Besides, you cannot honestly get that upset that a website doesn't work 
for <1% of the population.
