WOW...I love this forum and am a big supporter of SWA. I am a corporate travel agent located in Columbia, SC (where we wish WN flew). Not a day goes by that I don't book passengers on Southwest. I have large corporate clients in many of Southwest cities Detroit, L.A., Ft Laud, Orlando, Dallas, etc. and they offer corporate travelers a choice of departures unrivaled in most markets, reasonable fares, modern fleet, and the best change policy in the industry!!! Keep up the great work that you do and please someone realize that you have a void to fill between Raleigh and Florida. That void is known as Columbia, SC. Columbia is centrally located in the state and is located in the center of and within 100 miles of each of the following: Charlotte, Greenville, Charleston and Augusta. Passengers from those cities can and will drive to Columbia. This is NOT true of other combinations of city pairs. i.e. Charleston pax would not drive to Charlotte or Greenville or Raleigh but they will drive to CAE. Since Independence Air folded, our average fares have skyrocketed. I am a firm believer in in doing away with the Wright Amendment.
