Uncle Herb announced today at the Air Carrier Conference in Miami that there is a strong possibility that Southwest would not open any new cities in 2001. Instead, they are considering focusing new capacity from the new 73Gs coming on line from Boeing to increasing frequencies in certain markets.
If they do add new cities to their mix, any guesses as to which ones?

A time-honored topic in this forum, but here are my picks in the proper priority:
1) ICT-Wichita, Kansas
2) MKE-Milwaukee, Wisconsin
3) CLT-Charlotte, NC or CHS-Charleston, SC
4) opposite of #3
5) COS-Colorado Springs, Colorado

I think what this means is that it is a wait and see game. It is quite likely they are waiting to see what happens with the situation in STL regarding TWA/AA. Im sure there has been a game plan drawen up to cover almost any eventuality there. I have a strong feeling that the additional capacity will primarily be used in STL perhaps BWI too if the UA/US merger goes through. On the other hand it might be Herbs way of catching the other airlines off guard and new cities will indeed be added in 2001.

What about Ft. Myers, FL, Great airport, very modern, and is going to have another terminal built soon. Since they already have lots of intra-FL routes, why dont they add it, NS from MDW or a direct through someplace?
