You just cant admit that UAL does have protection for their preferential lease rights to those two gates.And for the 16th jillion time, WN has NO legal protection for its activities at DAL above the 16 gates that it had at the time WARA was created.
They can sublease them to anyone they want as long as the COD approves that sublease.
WN has acquired those subleases and the approvals from the COD.
"Southwest acquired United’s preferential gate use interest at Love Field through a sublease to which the City consented on or about January 28, 2015."
1. Southwest, United, and American are sometimes collectively termed the “Signatory Airlines” because they have signed leases for Love Field.
Delta isn't adding any flights because they don't hold any leases at Love Field.IOW.... you are losing one argument so you are trying to argue a different point as a distraction despite the fact that Kevin himself told you that DL very likely is not adding any flights until a final ruling is issued... but I can assure you that DL is not holding off unless it has been assured that its RIGHT to start those additional flights is preserved.
They hold what is referred to as temporary licenses to operate 5 flights only not a sublease.
Those licenses expired July 6 and are only being extended because a judge doesn't want the situation to change till he can hear the case.
2. Gate use agreements are contractual licenses between air carriers that, unlike subleases, have not traditionally required the City’s consent at Love Field. The City is not a party either to the subleases or to the gate use agreements cited in this complaint.
I believe only one person here will be proven wrong.The judge will give his opinion and that is all that matters.
The judge will decide and I strongly believe a lot of people here will be shown to be wrong.
