There was a small blurb in the latest AvWeek on a Southwest request to start international services from Houston Hobby. Key points from the article:
- Southwest is proposing Houston build an international terminal with 5 gates, allowing up to 25 daily departures to Mexico City, San Juan, Puerto Rico, Other Caribbean and South American cities.
- United has "unleashed" a major lobbying effort to try to block the deal.
