I think if VS ever gets into TPA, it would be with MAN.

But even then I think Thomas Cook beats them to MAN.

Saw on Twitter from a reporter, that Southern may move to the main terminal in the future. Only way that makes sense is if Southern is looking into bigger planes?

Also curious as toe FI buyout of WW and its implications for TPA. IMO I think they slowly end the WW product, but chance they could supplement FI to WW with the A321NEO? Hopefully not.

There was a Tampa Bay Business Journal article fairly recently, that named both ABQ and SAT as F9 future expansion.

As for Airside B, no idea about the sort facility and what could be done there, but I'm not even sure if the TPA main terminal could support a 6th airside, capacity wise.
