    Any plans for MORE expansions for Southwest??

    I think Southwest should stick with exactly what it's been doing over the past 25 years. No smaller spinoff airlines operating in specific regions (Hawaii, Alaska, etc.), and controlled expansion into airports which desperately need their service. Keep the route system simple (while not relying on congested hubs), keep the fleet standardized, and keep the planes in the air and off the gate as much as humanly possible.

    The fact is, Southwest's current business model has kept them profitable over the past 15 years, while other countless airlines have gone the path of bankruptcy.

    They're obviously doing something right over there, and to change that would be foolhardy.

    Thats exactly what I wanted to hear. Could you please maybe post a link to the story or whatever-I would be interested in reading it. Or was it just a brief news section?

    With the mentioning of the gates and terminals at Islip in another post, I wonder if they will add MORE airports?? They certainly need some to fly in the northwest-north region like montanna and wisconsin, and even denver, Colorado because UAL won't be seen as much as they used to be. Heck, wyoming sure would like to seem some Southwest planes fly there as well!! Maybe south Carolina, or somehwere in Georgia-not ATL but somewhere..Pennsylavania, while it may seem like Southwest flies EVERYWHERE- really they don't, they fly just barely over half of the states in the US. Maybe they need to start there own little service within the states of Alaska and Haiwaii, Alaska is certainly big enough like Texas and California to start flights within the state. Maybe fly to more Illinois cities like AirTran and ATA did, Moline, Quad, bloomington, just to name a few cities that has AirTran flying for. Its just a thought....hopefully in the near future it will be a defineite possiblity. Anyone want to comment on this?
