With Northwest and Delta combining why not create Southwest?

Got a new idea for SimAirline.net? We'd like to hear it.

With Northwest and Delta combining why not create Southwest?

Post by JohnSokol » 27 Nov 2008, 23:29

Hi everyone i read the posts about not adding more airlines but since delta and northwest are merging and Midway airlines doesnt exist anymore it would be nice to see another "american airline". We do have the legacy carriers but it would be nice to see Southwest. There is not one good virtual southwest airline and i cant think of a better group then SimAirline to create Virtual Southwest. Southwest is so different in the way that the fly thier routes completely different from other airlines in the US and they serve many smaller airports.
Thanks,
John Sokol

Please read the following post about why expansion will end.

In addition, there has been discussion about what the new Northwest/Delta will look like for SimAirline. Delta Virtual will obviously remain the same with the added Northwest built into it, and Northwest Virtual will be a throwback version of Northwest.

To add to Ben's points, the end goal is to have 32 virtual airlines. We strive to maintain good balance between regions, and the U.S. alone will have eight (nine if including Virgin America) of those anyways. Quite frankly, that's a lot.
