Austin to Boston Finally????

Imagine my surprise today reading the newspaper when I find out my favorite airline has FINALLY succumbed to having flights to Boston....course they aren't saying what city or cities in Texas will be the chosen...but I'm just hoping it's here. Cos I'll be burning the SWA website up with flights.

Southwest to begin flights to Boston in fall

Southwest Airlines Inc. plans to begin flying out of Logan International Airport in Boston this fall.

Brad Hawkins, a spokesman for the Dallas-based airline, said Southwest Chief Executive Officer Gary Kelly announced the move in a message to employees Wednesday night.

Kelly said in an interview with The Boston Globe that Southwest would start off with between eight and 12 daily departures from Logan and probably would initially fly to just a couple of destinations.

Hawkins said Southwest at Logan would "augment what is already a strong presence for Southwest" in New England.

Southwest flies into Manchester, N.H.; Providence, R.I. and Hartford, Conn.

"We make this decision with some confidence about what the market can sustain and what is needed," Hawkins said.

Southwest won't unveil the new routes until this spring.

Kelly told the Globe that the airline would be shifting from unpopular routes to markets that it hopes will be more profitable. The majority of its flights out of the Greater Boston area will continue to be from Manchester and Providence, Kelly said.

He said the move into Logan would bring 35-40 new jobs at the airport.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Wishing everyone of my friends and people out there Happy Valentine's Day!!! Even if you don't have that special someone in your life right now...surely you have something special in your life that you love. My love is about to start...well Pitchers and Catchers are already there...Spring Training is around the corner...the Opening Day brings smiles once again to Fenway. I'm looking forward to the MegaPalooza in May with all my pees from SG.

Today, I'm spending it with my family who I love very much. I'm learning no matter what house or structure you're can make it a home. My parents have been in a FEMA trailer since's small and you really can do anything without anyone else knowing. I just had sausage, eggs and grits and toast....about to drink some more coffee and spend some time with my son.

I hope you all are spending today doing something you love....or doing someone you love.
