Interesting article from the St. Paul's Pioneer Press. You might have to create an account to view, but I thought it was worth it.

"It's hubs are quasi-monopoly fortresses -- hence the longstanding desciption of the NWA network: It's cold, it's dark and it's all ours," notes USB airline analyst Sam Buttick.

Very good quote. Sums up NWA's dominance at MSP, DTW, MEM, and the US heartland. But Northwest lawyers are good at fending off the anti-trust lawsuits.  Smile
