Re: 2020 SNA Slot Allocation released

Southwest greatly benefited by the system at SNA for ages picking up unwanted slots.

Now that other operators want to grow its logical SWA will lose access to the supplemental slots which were never permanent anyhow.

Suppose recent growth at nearby LGB can help offset things to some degree.
