Wright Amendment? Who cares. Thats the same as when the opened PHL and PIT. Not really a big deal. So they connect LAX, MDW, OAK, LAS, BWI, etc. w/ Love field. Not THAT significant.

OK, tell me what you think or hurl a pie in my face.

Continental owns those gates don't they?
Airlines don't own gates anymore, airports do.
|Quoting Wjcandee (reply 82):|
I wouldn't be surprised if it had something to do with Herb. His lifetime of drinking too much and smoking even more has left him looking singularly unhealthy in the photos/videos that I have seen recently. OTOH, I'm not sure that they'd give a big buildup to something that would be so sad for everyone at Southwest. But that day's gonna have to come at some point.
|Quoting Gigneil (reply 37):|
In a one-class configuration, there is no advantage to owning a 737-900 instead of a 737-800.
They hold the same number of passengers.

I believe that would be known as the asymptote.
|Quoting Texan (reply 92):|
For an acquisition (most unlikely of the three above options), it would be Alaska
|Quoting Venuscat2 (reply 91):|
I seriously doubt this would happen, but, maybe Southwest will buy Independence Air (or at least part of their CRJ fleet) and start a Southwest Express operation. They'd first start flying "feeder" routes into focus cities. The 737's would still operate point to point, but the CRJs serve as more of a "shuttle bus" to the current WN cities.
Just an indea. Like I said, highly doubtful, but I think it's a good idea.

They are announcing that they will disregard all minimum flight time requirements for former interns and that interns will also get preferred hire status and a 1 year maximum time until Captain Upgrade.
