More Hubcentric - No Louisville - Atlanta Starting 6/8/14

Southwest has announced it'll stop the three daily flights between Louisville and Atlanta on 6/8. Looks like more trips through MDW.

Not necessarily indicative of "hubcentric." Maybe SDF - ATL just wasn't a profitable route anymore.

Not for the route network. Access and knowledge for international and competitor elimination are the obvious answers.

Couldn't have been that obvious. WN inaugurated the route 18 months ago.

This is the second cut at SDF recently -- they cut STL-SDF as well a few months ago.
