Details on numbers of flights as well as the full list of the cities and fares will be announced soon. The new flights will be made possible through a long-term sub-lease agreement that will transfer usage of two gates in the newly rebuilt 20-gate facility from United Airlines to Southwest Airlines. Terms of the deal are confidential. The transaction was reviewed and cleared without conditions by the U.S. Department of Justice Antitrust Division. The City of Dallas, the owner and operator of Love Field, also has approved the sublease.
Beginning in April, Southwest will offer daily nonstop flights to nine new cities from Dallas, including Memphis, Milwaukee, and Seattle, and will increase the number of nonstop flights to recently introduced destinations added after the October 2014 expiration of the Wright Amendment restrictions on long-haul flying at Love Field.
I guess DL is out. No surprise there, Southwest wanted the gates much more than DL. So Southwest will have control of 18 gates, and VX will have 2. Keep in mind Spirit and American are right across the city at DFW providing competition.
Also, as quoted above, it has been approved by everyone that needs to approve it. I guess this is why UA never added flights post wright amendment.
Back when Southwest published it's interest in the 2 AA gates, they listed cities they would add with the 2 gates. My guess is many of these cities will be added.http://swamedia.com/releases/southwe...ss-to-two-additional-gates?l=en-US
This ought to get all you Anti-WN, Anti-DAL people talking. Enjoy, lets all remember, we are here because we enjoy aviation so let's all be friendly!
