On March 31, 2014, Southwest Airlines Co.

According to Southwest, Kansas City area travelers would be left with three regional jet flights offered by the U.S. Airways in the absence of Southwest's daily nonstop service between the Nation's Capital and the "Paris of the Plains." Ron Ricks, Executive Vice President & Chief Legal/Regulatory Officer, commented, "Three other airlines are seeking the KCI-DCA slots exemptions in question but would use them to serve other markets to/from Washington, D.C. Specifically, if awarded the slots exemptions, these other airlines would fly between DCA and either Jacksonville, FL; Long Island, NY; or Myrtle Beach, SC. Kansas City is now in competition with these other cities for service to/from DCA." The full analyst notes on Southwest Airlines Co. are available to download free of charge at:
