EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Southwest Airlines announced its intent to start flights into Minneapolis. This has historically been a fortress hub for Northwest Airlines and in normal circumstances Northwest could be expected to react with some prejudice. But of course they are so tied up with the Delta merger.

Is this move an indicator of more moves to come? Might AirTran try its luck in Cincinnati? The legacy airlines are all shrinking and even the LCCs are seeing some shrinkage. As David Field, Americas Editor of Airline Business and Mike Ciasullo, IAG's managing partner for consulting services point out, the industry is headed for a nasty winter.
