DENVER, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV - News) announced today that the airline will continue its growth and commitment to Denver by adding 13 new daily flights and six new nonstop destinations next year from the Mile High City.

"We have consistently invested flights and resources to support our growing Denver operation, and we'll continue to do so," said Gary Kelly, Southwest's Chairman of the Board, President, and CEO. "Denver has been a great success story for Southwest, and, as a result, we've been able to grow at a record pace."
Kelly announced the expanded service today while visiting Denver to meet with Southwest Employees at Denver International Airport (DIA).

Southwest Airlines began service to Denver on January 3, 2006, with 13 daily nonstop departures to three destinations. The airline currently operates 112 daily nonstop flights from the Mile High City, making Denver the fastest growing city in the Company's history.

Sounds good to me. Hopefully it will push us closer to getting a crew base there.

I guess they are doing this by shuffling the existing fleet instead of adding more jets.

:DThey've also entered into an exclusive partnership with Louis Vitton, who released a signature brand of luggage in a cross-promotional campaign.

Here is my take after listening to a quote by Herb himself last week. Herb said,

"this is Southwest Airlines son. We ALWAYS get what we want."

My take...... We had a chance to make love to Frontier. Now we are going to just f#*k them but either way we still get our nut.

A guy I flew with a few weeks ago was at a GK base visit. Gary said DEN will be as big as MDW or bigger. We'll see.

I'm afraid it won't be us coming in to Atlanta as much as it would be a SWA/Airtran merger. I sure as hell hope I'm wrong.
