Unless you lived in Seattle or worked for Southwest you probably haven’t been following this, but Southwest has been threatening to leave Seattle’s Sea-Tac airport in favor of Boeing Field as a way of reducing costs. Well, that’s not going to happen. A city official announced that the city will not permit commercial flights from Boeing Field because of noise and environmental concerns (read: pressure from Alaska Airlines). If Southwest had moved, Alaska said that they would have to move as well, which leads to a chain reaction where airlines remaining at Sea-Tac are stuck with ridiculously high costs. Southwest said it will not fight the decision.
