NEW YORK (AP) -- Southwest Airlines Co. may add flights to a third new major U.S. airport as early as next fall, as the low-cost carrier shifts its traditional focus on less-trafficked, secondary airports.
In an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday, Chief Executive Gary Kelly said there are "decent odds" the Dallas-based carrier will look to add flights to a new major U.S. airport next year, following the addition of Minneapolis-St. Paul and New York's LaGuardia Airport

CLT or ATL would look good on the napkin. It would clear up some of the white space between VA and FL.

Never ATL... too much AitTran there... CVG would make sense since it's being completely abandoned

From the Market Watch article, "Kelly said he was confident his airline could maintain its high standard for on-time efficiency despite the airport's reputation as a traffic bottleneck."

It would be so much fun being a fly on the wall in whatever NYC office those Texans from SWA meet in telling the Port Authority how to do its job.

The Port Authority is not PHL. Looks like Kelly and crew will have to learn this lesson the hard way.

Looks like Southwest is going to take on Delta. I say it's either CVG or MEM. BOS is another possibility. I know CVG board would jump at a chance to have SWA come to CVG. I forsee remodeling T-1 or building a brand new one to accomidate SWA.

Is that before or after you bought your job?:laugh:

So will it be Westjet or Volaris serving those routes?
After all, you don't mind an international code share!;)
