Southwest Goes Long, Again

This time killing a 6 year old boy.

CHICAGO Dec 9, 2005 At first, the passengers aboard the Southwest Airlines flight trying to land amid heavy snow at Midway International Airport thought it was a normal landing. Then there was a bump and the plane was in the street.

Southwest loves the older smaller intown airports, but this is the second time in 5 years that a Southwest plane has overrun the runway. You have to wonder if public pressure will start to effect their business model.

southwest's choice of airports has nothing to do with "older smaller intown [sic] airports" and everything to do with avoiding the congested airports that serve major cities. they fly into midway to avoid o'hare. they also fly to islip, bwi, dallas (love field), and houston (hobby) to avoid the other major airports in or near those cities. that is their business model.
