Southwest to Invade; US Airways Vows
Southwest Airlines, always on the lookout for
potentially-profitable routes, has set its sights on Philadelphia,
principal hub of US Airways. The low-cost giant announced that its
route system will include the City of Brotherly Love [LUV?] next
Philadelphia will be the first new city added to Southwest's
system since late 2001, when Norfolk (VA) was signed on.
US Airways CEO David Siegel (right)
was quoted as saying that Southwest is making a "direct assault on
our principal hub." He said he plans "to stand and fight" with his
airline, to maintain the lion's share of that market.
Philadelphia travelers can expect to start paying less for their
tickets, on certain routes, starting in May; and they can expect to
see more perqs from their hometown airline, as US Airways shores up
its customer base in the coming months.
