In any case, the four cities rumored to be under consideration outside of Ohio are all mega hubs (ATL, DFW, IAH, CLT), and furthermore the site selection expert mentions international air service as something that may be driving SW to consider other cities.

If CLE loses all or part of S-W, it will be a classic case of the rich getting richer-- the rich being those cities in our country that have airline hubs (plus a few areas like Austin and RDU whose airports are really moving in a nice direction).
John Boyd (a consultant) is the source of these statements and has said the same things across multiple publications. However, he has done little to no fact finding and doesn’t cite anything to back up his opinions. All he’s doing is throwing out the most obvious cities for a potential relocation: growing cities in the south and southeast with hub airports.
