I know many of you like to keep tabs on new cities served by JetBlue and Southwest, so here’s one for you. Southwest has announced that it intends to serve two new destinations in South Carolina starting next year: Charleston (CHS) and Greenville-Spartanburg (GSP).
Details beyond that are slim at this point. But it’s still big news. Southwest will be the first low-cost carrier to serve Charleston (the city is pretty excited about the news), while at GSP, Southwest will join Allegiant to become the second low-cost carrier at the airport.
So what city do you want to get new airline service next? Are you rooting for your hometown, a place you visit regularly, or a place you’d like to visit? Which airline do you want to serve the destination? Southwest, with its large domestic network and funny flight crews? JetBlue with its impressive snacks and seatback entertainment? Virgin America, bringing the mood lighting and seatback meal ordering? One of the mainline carriers with a monster worldwide route network and extensive loyalty program?
