DON'T CRY DADDY -- NORTHWEST HAS SPECIAL 'ELVIS FARES' TO MEMPHIS

 MILWAUKEE, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- It's not "One Broken Heart for Sale" but rather airline tickets to Memphis. Fans will think they've found their "Good Luck Charm" when they take advantage of special "Elvis Fares" Northwest is offering to celebrate Elvis' 59th birthday on Jan. 8. Even a "Poor Boy" can "Follow His Dream" for as little as $99 round-trip to Memphis from Milwaukee.
 Whether they live at home or the "Heartbreak Hotel," passengers must take the early Saturday morning flights to Memphis on Jan. 8 and "Return to Sender" later that day. Tickets can be purchased in advance or "Until It's Time for
You to Go." All "Hound Dogs" should be placed in a kennel. "Don't Ask Me Why," but tickets are non-refundable.
 "Passengers just 'Can't Help Falling in Love' with these fares," said Michael E. Levine, executive vice president-marketing. "'Suspicious minds' will end up 'Crying in the Chapel' if they pass up this King-sized travel bargain."
 Unfortunately, "Elvis fares" to Memphis aren't available from Acapulco, Las Vegas or Blue Hawaii, but the sale is effective in the following cities: Atlanta; Austin, Texas; Birmingham, Huntsville and Mobile, Ala.; Baton Rouge and Shreveport, La.; Chattanooga, Knoxville and Nashville, Tenn.; Chicago; Dallas; Detroit; Fayetteville, Ark.; Gulfport and Tupelo, Miss.; Fort Myers, Fort Walton Beach and Tampa, Fla.; Houston; Indianapolis; Kansas City, Mo.; Louisville and Paducah, Ky.; Milwaukee; Minneapolis; Oklahoma City; Omaha, Neb.; St. Louis; Tulsa, Okla,; and Washington.
 "'Hard Hearted Women,' 'U.S. Males' and 'Kissin' Cousins' will be flocking to Graceland for Elvis' birthday," said Carolyn Mears, sales director for Graceland. "Visitors usually get 'All Shook Up' with the city's other music-oriented attractions such as Sun Studios where Elvis recorded early hits like 'That's Alright Mama' and 'Blue Moon Kentucky,' and Beale Street, birthplace of the Blues.
 Northwest, the official airline of Graceland, and its regional airline partners, together with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines form the world's first global airline alliance and the third largest airline system, serving more than 380 cities in 81 countries on six continents.
