Friendly Skies

With the progressive repeal of the Wright Amendment, Southwest Airlines announced today that it will offer one stop destinations to Las Vegas, Chicago, Los Angeles and Orlando, Fla. I just can't figure out how much they'll charge - which is the important part. Both the Star Telegram and the DMN are running the same AP story despite the fact there was a press conference at 10:00 a.m. You'd think they could have someone in the newsroom do a little original work on the story. Edit: The airline, based at Love Field, will offer $99 one-way “introductory” fare on those routes. But Southwest did not disclose a specific end date for that promotion. The introductory fares are available with a 14-day advance purchase, for travel beginning Oct. 31.
