Interesting turn of events: DCA going to JetBlue!, DFW opening up slots to: Maybe SWA/Airtran(WN/FL) and DAL get into this market. DAL pulled out big time but may come back. WN/Fl chomping on the bit to get slots here and bring AA down to its knees.
This may lead to another trip to bankruptcy court for the new AA/US to remain competitive.
