Re: Southwest, a stalwart Boeing 737 MAX customer, eyes other jets

Boeing can give WN discount after discount, but what's the point on giving them a discount on a bird that can;'t fly?

My guess is that once they get their own operating certificate, they'll probably get some A220's and 175E2's

Re: Midwest Express Partnering with Elite for Launch

D is where OneJet flew from, so this will probably be true for Midwest. In fact, they’ll probably use the same gate!

I wouldn't be surprised if they also used OneJet's ticket counter space as well!
