Wright Amendment Heading Towards Repeal

American, Southwest, Love Field, and DFW have finally come to an agreement, and they are going to propose a full repeal of the Wright Amendment to the Texas house, with the stipulation that Love Field reduce it’s operating gates from 32 to 20, and there will be no international flights. Still not sure if that eliminates flying to, say, Newark or O’Hare and then on to Europe or if that will be restricted as well.

But anyway, we’ll finally have cheaper domestic flights and a closer airport if this passes, awesome.

    If loving you is wrong, I don’t want to be Wright. Super psyched to hear this news. Flying artists in for less $ is always good in my book…
