I am sure that there is an easy explanation to this. With all of the rumors and talks about possible mergers, no one mentions Southwest at all. Why is that? Personally, I would like to see SW stand alone, for it nicely fills a niche. But every other airline come sup when talking about possible mergers, take-overs, etc...

I don't think that has even a grain of possibility. Southwest is way too popular and successful. They have such a powerful image that the public outcry alone will almost guarantee that anyone that thought about buying them out would reconsider.

777X got it to the point, the issue with SW is rather it's unique structure especially the fact that it doesn't operate a hub! out of all US majors (and world majors) there is no one other than SW flying point to point.
