Kirby has discussed a return to OAK, but aside from that, I don't know if anything will change with regard to United's strategy, which has been vigorous competition with Southwest on battlegrounds throughout the country.
I don't know if HOU or MDW would be on the table, but I can see OAK for sure.
United still owns gates at MDW, gate that we lease out to WN.
Not saying UA is going back to MDW but we still own a few gates over there.
How many gates does UA own and why don't they use them?
Can't tell you how many but they don't use them for the same reason they sub-lease the DAL gates to WN. They are not markets that UA thinks it can generate enough revenue to cover their costs rather they get a better ROI by leasing them out.
