@ByERussell “Frankly Southwest has squandered the opportunity that AirTran gave them to start with a sizable presence in the market and grow,” says @hharteveldt. Southwest’s share in Atlanta fell below 10% in 2021, from nearly 15% a decade ago.
@ByERussell Norse hopes to receive its UK AOC “in a few months time,” flights could begin a few months later, says Larsen when asked when US-UK flights could begin.
