    Dear Southwest.... Come to Knoxville :thumbsup:

    Pretty sure these are old Airtran routes, but Southwest pulling into Charlotte offers up a ton of competition to US Airways.

    I'm sure Theshaah can explain it better, but apparently there are gov. qualifiers to fly over water and that's why SWA has only flown in the US. With the acquisition of Air Tran, that's going to be changing as we see we San Juan as a new destination.

    Flint was interesting for me as it would be a similar drive to Detroit (and a better duty free coming back), but looks like SW will only fly direct to Baltimore and Orlando from Flint.

    Just changing Airtran stuff to the Southwest side, not really a big deal.

    "*Southwest service to Branson, MO begins March 9, 2013; AirTran service to Branson ends March 8, 2013.
    *Southwest service to Charlotte, NC, Flint, MI, Portland, ME, and Rochester, NY begins April 14, 2013; AirTran service to Charlotte, Flint, Portland, and Rochester ends April 13, 2013."
