What's your point?

All the more reason to allow Southwest to expand and even the playing field a bit.

You're a funny guy. You are right, they are not in the top 50. Creative posting though; you left out that if you click on page #2 they are right at the top in spot #52 and will jump into the top 50 with the international expansion.

Southwest deserves to expand but they play this game too. They stopped TX passenger rail not too long ago

Smaller companies provide better service than the large ones. Bigger is not always better. Quality over quantity.

The TGV consortium died 20 years ago and not at the hands of Southwest but because *competing rail companies* litigated to the max and because the consortium twice failed to meet bonding deadlines when their European banks decided to not back the bonds. In other words, Southwest didn't kill rail, rail self destructed.
