Southwest Starts Countdown

Southwest Airlines has started a countdown to October 13th, 2014, the end of the Wright Amendment and the beginning of Southwest’s ability to fly non-stop to wherever it wants in the continental United States.

Personally, I’m going to treat it as a countdown to my mother’s birthday (which is the same day).

My best guess on flights Southwest launches that day:

  • Chicago
  • Los Angeles
  • Portland
  • Atlanta
  • Baltimore
  • Newark
  • Phoenix

I know you’re surprised I put Portland on that list  but I do think it will become an immediate flight.  The fares on that route today are sky high with no competition.  American Airlines flies that route with 4 flights a day and Alaska Airlines has one flight a day as well.  This is a route I feel certain SWA will pick as low hanging fruit unless something happens to that city pair in the meantime.

October 13, 2014 will be a very big day in Dallas.
