Dallas Biz Jrnl: AirTran pulling back at D/FW Airport

AirTran pulling back at D/FW Airport
Margaret Allen
Staff Writer

Low-cost carrier AirTran Airways Inc. is cutting back some of its flights from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport because of high jet fuel costs, D/FW airport confirmed late Tuesday.

(snip)

AirTran, which operates about a dozen flights a day out of D/FW, is one of the airport's premier low-cost carriers.

(snip)

D/FW, which historically has had average fares much higher than other major U.S. hub airports, has consistently pointed to growth of its low-cost carriers as proof that smaller carriers can enter the D/FW Airport market and compete against American Airlines Inc.

(snip)

In a recent blow to D/FW, New York-based low-cost carrier JetBlue announced it was launching nonstop flights Jan. 19 between Austin's Bergstrom International Airport and New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport and Boston's Logan Airport.

1. They really need to abolish the Wright Amendment.
And then watch the fares drop when they are having to compete with low-cost carriers at Love Field.

2. I think Love Field is a noisy nuisance for the neighbors.

3. Interesting...
"I think Love Field is a noisy nuisance for the neighbors."

Well, if they reppeal the amendment, just imagine what will happen to Love Field... Do Dallas residents want a huge airport in their backyard?
