A group representing corporate travelers is siding with American Airlines in a dispute over passenger service in Dallas. The Business Travel Coalition concludes that Dallas Love Field should be closed to commercial flights.
Southwest Airlines is pushing for authority to expand long flights to and from Love, which is now under federal flight restrictions.
The business group says that doing would result in fewer flights and poorer service from many cities to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
Southwest officials are renewing threats to move the low-cost airline's headquarters from Dallas if Love Field is closed to commercial traffic. Instead, the airline wants Congress to repeal a 1979 law called the Wright Amendment, which restricts long flights to and from Love Field.
