I don't think Herb should get credit for the code-share concept, my understanding is one of TZ's aircraft lessors dreamed it up. However, Herb certainly deserves major kudos for recognizing the validity of the concept and acting acting upon the opportunity quickly.

This is great:

Southwest won't recommend a candidate for the position of ATA chief executive officer, but Kelleher hopes the interim CEO, John Denison, gets the permanent job. Denison is Southwest's former chief financial officer...

Taken from http://www.indystar.com/articles/5/234986-4535-223.html

I think they are effectively making a recommendation.

You really have to hand it to Herb Kelleher. Outside of Juan Trippe and Bob Crandall, I don't think there is anyone who has read the currents of the Airline industry better then Kelleher. Southwest has a fiscal stablity that just mocks the rest of the airline industry in the United States, and even overseas.

At the same time, I think the ATA experience is opening a few eyes at South West as well. A lot of the routes that ATA is lending to South West (via the code share) are doing really well according to anecdotal evidence (for example, DEN<->MDW) and the vacation routes that ATA has fills in very very nice with South Wests huge point to point system.

I'd wager that the Southwest codeshare is also a large part of why ATA no longer needed Chicago Express as a regional feeder. 1400 passengers per day is equivalent nearly 60 Saab flights filled to 70%.
