I have no idea what this means???
No one is talking about an acquisition. We're talking "regional feed". It's been a rumour longer than I've been here. I don't think it is out of the realm of possibility...but not likely either.The only way SWA will aquire another carrier will be in a fire sale. NO WAY will they merge employee groups. They hold their culture too dearly.
It will NEVER happen. IF it does, ready yourselves to re-interview to keep you job.
Gary K. is way too smart to ever, EVER try outsourcing SWA flying to RJs. Being the brilliant bean counter that he is, he understands that there is far more to the equation than just the numbers.
If there is ever any RJ flying for SWA, it will be strictly limited to small markets SWA would never otherwise serve. The codeshare will never be anything like the mass outsourcing that happened at the legacies.
East Bumblebee, Idaho to SEA maybe. LAX to SEA, never ever ever.
