Houston, We Have a Solution!

Not applicable
In an overwhelming 16-1 vote, the Houston City Council voted this morning in favor of Southwest's proposal for international expansion at Houston Hobby. Gary and more than 60 Southwest Warriors were in attendance for today's historic vote.
After the vote, Gary graciously thanked Houston Mayor Annise Parker and members of council for their support. He also thanked members of the Houston community who rallied behind our cause to Free Hobby!
"This is a monumental moment for Southwest Airlines and the City of Houston," said Gary. "There is still work to do, but today we are one step closer to increased competition and lower fares for Houston's international travelers."
Also, thanks to everyone who visited freehobbyairport.com to sign the petition or e-mail their council members in support of bringing competition and low fares to international destinations like Mexico, the Caribbean, and cities in central and South America.

Very happy about the results! However, Southwest, remember that Houston and the Houston area went out on a limb for you...United/Continental is now making Houston pay the price for this vote. Share some of the Dallas luv with Houston!!!
