It all has to do with marketing and luring customers away from the Legacies. Now, what would be interesting would be if someone would start an airline specifically designed to tie LCC's together from continent to continent. In other words an airline that flew from STN/FRA-ATL/BWI and tied say Ryanair or EasyJet with AirTran or Southwest with interlined or codeshared connections.
I know that this is not the LCC's model structure to codeshare typically but say if an international carrier with 763's or 333's brought the two together somehow that would be interesting.
It may not work but hey looks like Virgin Blue is trying to come to the US from Australia, maybe they could tie in with FL, WN or B6?
