This is just going to allow more negros into the air, on the ghetto express airline of America. Keep the negros on greyhound bus lines.

I believe they said Southwest Airlines was coming, not Airforce One!

I've flown Southwest quite a bit--and welcome them to the area.

All the bashing aside -- competition is good.

Stay classy racist conservatives. I like how the other conservatives say and do nothing when others of their ilk make such ridiculous, racist comments. It's almost as if they agree with them. And you people wonder why the rest of us think you're just a bunch of racist crackers.

As far as Southwest goes....it's about time. Fares will finally go down at GRR. It happens everywhere Southwest goes. No stupid bag fees, friendly staff and they are one of the most on-time airlines as well. No more driving to DTW or MDW as Southwest has been the only airline I've flown for the last 6 years or so.

It's a great thing for my family, since two sisters and their families live in Grand Haven....and the oldest has a condo in Orlando...it's a big upgrade for that airport....
