Say goodbye to Midwest. Not that there's much left of that once proud airline. Cheers to Southwest! Hopefully SW and Airtran can coexist somewhat peacefully.

When is Southwest going to fly to San Juan, Puerto Rico?

A great destination with no passport requirement!

IT'S ABOUT TIME!!! Not only will they get Northern Illinois travelers, they will get those folks from the Appleton / Neenah / Menasha, Central Wisconsin, and the Fond Du Lac / Oshkosh areas as well. Relatively good service + relatively good price + a great route system = WINNER!!! DING, DING.

Great news. I don't fly Southwest because I'm in the far northern 'burbs and Midway is too far. Mitchell is less crowded than O'Hare and the parking is a lot less expensive too.
