While North Texas' Fort Worth-based airline may be cutting jobs, the Dallas-based one is adding positions.
Southwest Airlines said they'll hire an additional 140 pilots to fly new flights and help fill-in for those on vacation.
The low-fare carrier added 25 percent more traffic with the recent acquisition of AirTran, including routes in Washington, D.C., and Atlanta.
In just three years, passengers will be able to fly coast to coast from Love Field with the restrictions imposed by the Wright Amendment come to an end.
