Southwest Airlines, already looking at a partnership with WestJet in Canada, is now eyeing Hawaii, Mexico and the Caribbean, the Associated Press reports.
Could a partnership offering flights to Europe be far behind?
Yes, says airline consultant Mike Boyd. It could be way far behind.
“The last thing an international carrier wants is low-fare trash in the back of the plane,” he told the AP. “And Southwest doesn’t need Europe.”
Well, ouch. How do we low-fare trash travelers get across the Atlantic?
