boom missed a threat to Southwest. Southwest outsources MOST of their maintenance to anti-union chop shops. This has caused all other airlines to do the same in a race to the bottom. Now the mechanics at Southwest are the high cost mechanics and will be targeted for pay cuts. Southwest has driven everyone down to the lowest possible common denominator. Now Southwest is the high cost airline. What now...X?

Nice job, boom...
An additional threat is if airlines are rolled into Cap and Trade (Crap and Tax) legislation... will add significantly to cost of operations, and raise ticket prices markedly
