The WA "compromise" was a sell out by WN and AA. This just means everyone gets screwed evenly, for another 8 years.

The one and only bright light is if Congress does not go along with the deal worked out by Fort Worth, Dallas, DFW, AA, and WN, by 31 December 2006, the whole deal is off.

I hope my confidence in the do nothing Congress is justified.

Cj,

Rep. Johnson also has a large number of constituents in Dallas County. See, in Congress, districts run across county lines unlike the very narrow focus of your baseless arguments. Johnson's district runs into Richardson, which is in Dallas County

He is representing all of his constituents, even though he is not representing your specific views. But he doesn't have to answer to you.

It is a valid concern for him because there has been talk of turning TKI (McKinney/Colling County Airport) into a commercial airport in the future. And he is being consistent in his views, arguing for the freedom for airlines to fly where they would like to fly. Hmmm...freedom to make a profit. Sounds like a good business plan and a winner for both the airlines and local airports! Again and again you are proven to not know what you are talking about. Better luck next time.

Texan

Edit: Here's a map of Texas' 3rd District just in case you were curious. This way maybe someone won't be able to prove you incorrect again so quickly. By the way, three airports in Congressman Johnson's district have been closed already. He doesn't want to see a potentially high growth area and airport (TKI) severely restricted, nor does he want to inconvenience some of his constituents in Dallas County by closing DAL.

And actually, I believe it was Representative Wright from Fort Worth who "started this whole mess that affects the airports in Dallas and Tarrant County." See, he introduced this amendment that initially tried to completely shut down DAL and...well, you know the rest.

And you see, Congressmen and women are upset because the cities and airlines are trying to go behind Congress' back to pass something that they don't want and is not in the best interests of their constituents. For many Congressmen and women now, the best interests of their constituents lie in opening up DAL to more flights. This includes the Congresspeople wishing to receive donations from various large airlines in New York, Tennessee, Michigan, Minnesota, and Arizona. And since this agreement was reached between the two airlines and the two city councils, Congressmen and women have finally started looking and saying, "Man, that sounds extremely anti-competitive. Since we are capitalists here, wouldn't it make sense to allow more competition and allow the partially free market to decide which airlines thrive?"

So there is some of the reasoning behind it.

Pay attention here Texan, you said Dallas County not the City of Dallas. Richardson/Plano/McKinney/Allen is not Dallas. That was the point I was making. Why make waves for one City then stand back and cry Crocodile tears when your actions back fire on your own City? You are right he does not have to answer to me anymore than he answers to you. However I do vote and do contribute to campaigns. I also volunteer time to candidates I believe in. Needless to say neither Hensarling nor Johnson will get my money or time this election and Hensarling can kiss my vote good bye for what that is worth.

Maybe the good Congressman should read the agreement first. It only says that the Cities of Dallas and Ft Worth will look after their interests first. No where does it say that airlines cannot serve other airports in the 80 mile radius from Love Field only that if WN or AA do they will be forced to give up a capacity advantage at Love Field. How does that hamper efforts to create a commercial airport at TKI? He has more to fear from the Nimby’s in the growth areas near the airport than any agreement made by Dallas and Ft Worth to actively seek to promote new airlines service at DFW.

What is in the best interest of the cities is local control of airports and the right for the cities to decide what is the best option for the use of those airports. Try not to forget the goal of this whole miss adventure was to end the conditions that prevented competition in this market in the first place. If Dallas had not lost control of Love Field by government (Judicial Branch)interference this Wright issue would have never existed.

So the goal was to permanently open up DAL to all comers? Or to limit DFW to cities in TX, AR, OK, NM, LA, KS, AL, MS, MO?  Silly

I think they can amend the new compromise to allow a phase out of the Wright Restrictions, something like allowing 4-5 States a year to be added to DAL with all 50 States available in 8 years.

Legend terminal owners file Wright lawsuitBy TREBOR BANSTETTER
STAR-TELEGRAM STAFF WRITER
DALLAS -- The owners of the Legend Airlines terminal filed suit against the cities of Fort Worth and Dallas; American Airlines, Southwest Airlines and the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport board Monday afternoon, alleging that the local compromise on the Wright Amendment violates anti-trust laws.

Love Terminal Partners, which owns the vacant terminal on Lemmon Avenue at Love Field, filed the suit in federal court in Dallas late Monday afternoon. It charges that the Wright compromise, forged by the cities, the airlines and D/FW airport last month, is “a blatant violation of the federal antitrust laws.”

The suit also claims that the deal destroyed the value of the terminal, which the group had been negotiating to sell to Pinnacle Airlines for $100 million.

“The scheme protects and enhances the monopoly power of each of the participants,” the suit states. “The agreement is an anti-competitive deal that was put together in a back room to eliminate competition and protect two select carriers.”

The Wright Amendment is a 1979 federal law that restricts service from Dallas Love Field airport to Texas and adjacent states. Southwest, which is based at Love, began lobbying Congress in 2004 to have the law repealed.

American, which operates a hub at nearby D/FW Airport, fought the repeal efforts.

Last month, the mayors of Fort Worth and Dallas and the two airlines, as well as officials from D/FW, agreed to a compromise that would eliminate the geographic restrictions after eight years.

The agreement would also reduce the number of gates at Love from 32 to 20. Dallas Mayor Laura Miller said the city would seize the Legend terminal and tear it down in order to eliminate its six gates.

The agreement must be approved by Congress before it can take effect.

The suit asks the federal court to halt the cities from enforcing the agreement and asks for damages from both American and Southwest. It also asks for triple damages from both airlines and court and attorneys fees.

The suit is the latest obstacle to hit the Wright proposal, which was the subject of Congressional hearings last week. Discount carrier JetBlue Airways has also raised anti-trust concerns and charged that the deal blocks other airlines from accessing Love Field.

And officials with several North Texas communities have complained that some tenets of the agreement could prevent smaller airports from getting commercial airline service in the future.

This is what I am gathering from this whole Wright thing...

Yes, it limits competition in Dallas by holding WN to a more or less regional carrier out of DAL, serving adjacent states (plus STL and MCI).

It is a rather formidable effort to try and get LCCs into DFW and bring competition to that airport. AA, on the other hand, uses the Wright Amendment to its advantage. It looks at it as essentially keeping DFW to itself pretty much, given that WN, nor any other airline, for that matter, even wants to go near DFW, not even with a 79ft pole. AA and the airport authority have made it a rather hostile environment for any LCC or any other new carrier, for that matter, to come in and offer service to some of the markets out of DFW. I suppose that is also why there aren't many foreign carriers serving the airport either, as AA has essentially monopolized the international markets out of DFW???

Not sure, this is all just my assumption of all of this. Is it accurate, goofy? Am I nuts for thinking of it this way? (be honest  Wink)
