Abstract

Under last year's Wright Amendment Reform Act, several gates at Love Field Airport in Dallas are slated for demolition because they could be leased to airlines other than American Airlines and Southwest Airlines, the two dominant players in the burgeoning North Texas market. The new law not only distributes market power in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, but also shapes activities everywhere else on the airline grid.
