    I doubt it. They could all apply for access now under the current rule, but they haven't.

    AA can't. UA could, and technically still holds its lease, but apparently wants nothing to do with DAL.

    Allegiant, Spirit and Frontier appeal to an entirely different type of customer base (think Walmart, not Dillards), and that's not what DAL is about.

    Jetblue doesn't even fly JFK-DFW right now -- they only fly BOS-DFW. I certainly don't see them trying to do dual airport or move that over to DAL.

    So, who else is left?...
