Southwest Airlines is mounting a grassroots movement to repeal the Wright Amendment that prevents them from flying beyond the four adjoining states around Texas from Love Field. To which I say HOORAY! At this point, there is little to no chance that extra flights from Love could significantly hurt DFW airport and it would only be a good thing for consumers.

I don”t understand why a Republican Senator and an Republican Congressman would want to fight for the repeal of something that would help business, increase consumer choice and lower prices for consumers but that”s what U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and Rep. Joe Barton, R-Ennis are saying they”ll do. I”m not sure what Southwest”s chances are but that”s a movement I could get behind.
