Re: What would happen at DEN if Southwest overtakes United?

WN has already overtaken UA on many routes IND/STL/BNA/BWI/MKE/MCI/ABQ?/PHX/etc., and overall, in terms of capacity and local traffic. Also replaced UA entirely on DEN-OAK They didn't replace UA at Oakland. UA pulled out of OAK over some "Dingbat" reason about the Terminal upgrades they w...
