RE: LCC With Two Aircraft Types?

I've wondered if Southwest could get a fleet of RJ's to use for smaller cities, and make that work, financially?

You can't get around the extra maintenance costs of having four engines (wasn't that what killed off the A340?), but what about a more fuel-efficient new engine for the 747? Would there be a way to make it more cost effective when compared to the 777 and 787, or is it simply too heavy?
