Dallas Clears Virgin America to Take Over American Air’s Love Field Gates

Skift Take

Virgin and Delta have a fifth of the available gates at Love Field, while Southwest retains everything else. It’s interesting when Delta is the little guy.

The city of Dallas just announced that it was granting two gates at Dallas Love Field to Virgin America.

American Airlines was forced to give up the gates by the U.S. Department of Justice as a condition of its merger with US Airways. Southwest Airlines, which already controls 16 of Love Field’s 20 gates, wanted the two gates and was applying considerable pressure on the city of Dallas.
