    Hi smartman,
    My take on Southwest’s pending purchase of AirTran—previously known as ValueJet—makes a lot of sense for the peanut carrier and its shareholders.
    Gives them badly needed additional slots at LaGuardia, entry into Reagan-Washington, Atlanta, Boston, Mexico and the Caribbean while ‘taking out’ a growing low-fare competitor in the process. Add to that the new slots SW is receiving from Continetal in Newark–WOW–the only represenation they won’t have in the Big Apple will be JFK.
    As to SW at MCI? It may not turn out to be so great for us. SW already has cut back service here. (Example: SW used to have about 15 daily non-stops to Midway. What do they have today–9?
    They’ve ‘repositioned’ those planes to more profitable markets such as Denver.
    It’ll be interesting to see how it’ll all play out.
    Oh–and will ticket prices rise next year? Chances for that to happen are about as good as Funkhouser to be re-elected.

    Jack: Thanks for the reply. Do you know if the SW non-stops to Chicago were cut back since many of them were midpoint touchdowns to other destinations to say Cleveland, Boston, Baltimore or New York?

    Which carrier(s) at MCI will be hurt the most by the acquistion?

    smartman: Here’s my guess as to SW cutbacks in K.C.
    First off, the economy made the airline cut back on some of their anticipated new aircraft aquisitions last year. So as they grew in destinations they decided to shift from ‘lesser’ markets. So we got caught in the squeeze.

    As to who’s going to get hurt most out of MCI?
    My guess would be Frontier and Delta.
    But then what the hell do I know, right?
