Southwest Seeks New York City Service

Everybody's favorite domestic airline, Southwest, is finally planning to operate out of a New York airport, La Guardia. Southwest said today it submitted a $7.5 million bid to acquire the unused slots of ATA Airlines, which declared bankruptcy last April, in a plan to operate seven non-stop routes from La Guardia.

Here's the announcement.

Southwest has been conspicuous in its absence from Kennedy, Newark and LaGuardia in the vital (and delay-ridden) New York air-travel market.
