NEWS: Psst...Southwest...check this out

OK, like Southwest Airlines needs any help picking new markets to exploit. Now they have people volunteering them. Analyst Michael Boyd is suggesting Southwest should make a move on Charlotte, NC as it is suffering from US Airways withdrawal symptoms much like Pittsburgh. Southwest CEO Gary Kelly said the airline is considering Charlotte. I wonder if Kelly had a funny look on his face when he said that? You know...that kinda apprehensive shut-the-h**l-up look that you get when somebody starts putting your semi-secret plans out into the glare of the press.
