I heard from a friend that the Dept of Transportation (DOT) has asked to lift the ban on Dallas' Lovefield airport from flying direct to any destinations outside Texas & the 5 adjoining states (I think this is governed by the Wright Ammendment or something like that that was passed a long time ago by the backing of the city of Fortworth to protect DFW). However the city of Fortworth (in this case a.k.a AA or American airlines) is appealing the decision in order to protect DFW (i.e. the monopoly of AA at DFW). Can anyone confirm this? I would love to see expansion at lovefield, and also Direct SW flights to destinations like California, Orlando,etc!!!
I've flown on 9V-SPK.
