All other airlines do not matter

You cannot take Southwest to Europe

Wow, nothing but boring liveries now

Hawaiian is the last "real" US widebody airline

Only high air fares now

Coach travel will get better with these "big four"

Employees from other carriers should look here

The future is these and regional airlines

WN and who else will have an all US made fleet

Air travel will never be the same

United States air travel has now changed forever. And, not necessarily for the best.

Really the only other airline firm in terms of fleet size comparable is SkyWest Inc. which has over 700 aircraft

Logistically that is a pretty massive operation. Thus the only otherway for another airline, for example like JetBlue to be a player would be to buy SkyWest Inc, and upsize the average fleet size by adding larger Ejet 190s flying on a very limited bases alongside SkyWest Incs, United Express, Delta Connection, and American Eagle branded flyings routes.

Now that happening is very unlikely. Jetblue however does have a brand strong enough to attract business upon any route a regional Express, Eagle, or Connection route that is presently flown.

WN Southwest is the only one of the big four that does not count Ejets among its fleet or operating partners such as Airtran.

Is it time WN stages a coup.

The youngest one I remember was a 9 year old and he could really suck. I remember when I slid into his tight ass he started calling me "da da".

Obviously, there is a very sick "oneworld skyteam star" stalker between my two responses. Shame but internet never fails to surprise.

If JetBlue was simply to merge with SkyWest they would just as large as WN in overall aircraft fleet size.

Not saying this is going to happen, but that is one way for JetBlue to get bigger
to become a more competitive airline with the "big 4"

Which of these companies aircraft will always get you there upon an American made Boeing 737 or larger aircraft?

NOT - UA, DL, or AA - if its not Boeing, should you be going!

Made in the USA is kind of important to our economy.

Don't you think? Thank You Southwest! Even if your on time performance, and internal cabin design, and new seats are sorry.

Thankfully most other airline seats are just as sorry as yours.

That is not the only problem with Southwest, or for that matter... JetBlue, lately.

Times are changing for first to worst!

Boeings are assembled in the US but American made, check your parts pal as with automobiles most are manufactured in some other country.

With all the regional jet flights coming to Boeing's home base of Washington state with DL's hub expansion in the Emerald City;

it sure looks like Boeing's employees and management are in for a big eye opener when they see first hand how much market they have ceded, by discontinuing, not replacing, or not updating the MD 95 / 717 line.

DL's Asian hub is going to be dominated by Airbus Scarebuses, and Embraer Jungle Jets, which is probably not the first thing Boeing wants airline executives to see once they step off the airplane for factory tours of the Boeing operation in the Pacific Northwest.

So much for the DC 9 replacement, which could have kept Boeing in the the 75 - 130 seat market pretty well.

Okay we get ... Yes you guys at Southwest have an all Boeing fleet. Now to the real issues at hand in regards to the big 4, who stands to get trounced with rising fuel prices going to $115 -$150 a barrel of oil?

Southwest faired well last time we had a fuel spike, with fuel hedging.

Basically though the rest of the airlines shot themselves in the foot when they tried to gamble on jet fuel costs. Southwest was lucky cause they gambled early. Hopefully dumb airline management does not get suckered into this kind of price escalating speculation again like the last oil shock.

Anyway who stands to fair worse in a fuel spike?
