Thoroughly enjoyed reading about the terrific Southwest team in Little Rock. Though I have not had the pleasure of experiencing Little Rock's team I always strive to fly Southwest whenever possible. A suggestion for another great (small) airport the Southwest team could invigorate is the Cherry Capital Airport in Traverse City, Michigan. Traverse City, Michigan, is a terrific destination city, always in season.........All we need is LUV!
