Southwest Green-Lighted for La Guardia Slots

Southwest Airlines' bold move into New York is moving ahead, with a bankruptcy judge green-lighting its purchase the sale of 14 slots there that are among the assets of bankrupt ATA Airlines, it says here in the Dallas Morning News.

Used to be, major airlines would pounce like lions when uppity competitors like Southwest tried to nuzzle into major new territory. Southwest, whose service is widely anticipated in New York, seems to believe it can handle them. Note the recent move into Minneapolis-St. Paul, for example.
