|Southwest Status Match Offer|
Southwest wants to eliminate competitors. That’s why they purchased AirTran and are dismantling it. Next on their list is Frontier, an airline without a strategy or deep pockets. It is an easy target. Southwest doesn’t want to agitate United in Denver because UA will go broke to defend the Denver hub and the airline’s customers don’t overlap well. Frontier can’t afford competition and their low cost customers can very easily become Southwest’s. Look for Frontier to return fire; they can hold off Southwest in the short term, but are doomed if Southwest lays siege to Denver.
