According to the infamous ITRADE on USAviation...
US Airways has applied for route authority to: Austria, Czech Rep, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovak Rep, and Sweden. This would be either direct service or via code-share.
Any opinion/comment posted is that of my own and not that of Southwest Airlines Co.

Well it seems unlikely they would start non-stop service flights to any of those countries, a connection to Austria, Poland, and Scandanavia considering that USAirways have alliances there and a codeshare would be likely for routes to those locations first.
On another note, with the new US Airways International terminal at PHL, this would be a great time for international expansion.

If there was money to be made on these routes, CO or DL would have already been all over them. Very unlikely US will want to indulge in such adventurism at this point when they're looking over the edge...

I think US Air would indeed start codesharing to all the above destinations through - Lufthansa out of Munich/Frankfurt to Central/Eastern Europe plus Malta on one hand, SAS out of Reykjawick via Copenhagen to Norway, Finland, Sweden on the other.
So yes it seems that Boston or Philadelphia to Reykjawick (Iceland) service could be the one and only novelty here.
