Great new for Southwest which is looking for more slots. Believe it was Andrew Watterson the chief revenue officer that tweeted a few weeks back they wanted to grow LGB as slots become available.
Bad news for the consumer. WN’s fares are nowhere what they used to be in their glory days and usually a bit higher than legacy carriers on many routes when I’m booking business travel for my team. To pay those prices without a guaranteed seat and cattle herding boarding process is a joke.
I do hope B6 spreads the loss over a swath of other So-Cal airports. They usually have not only the best price, but the best offering of any carrier.
Good luck to WN with low hanging fruit, poor yields, a crappy city government, and neo-fascist NIMBY zombies.
