Southwest Wins Houston Rights to International Flights, United Must Cut 1300 Jobs

United Airlines has lost its fight to prevent Southwest Airlines from adding international flights from Houston and this has made it necessary for the airline to cut 1300 jobs from the Houston's Hobby AIrport.  United warned the city council that jobs would be cut if they approved the additional international flights for Southwest.  However, city council approved the move on Wednesday, allowing Southwest to spend $100 million to add international gates and a customs facility to the airport.

United Airlines is the biggest airline in the world and its main hub is Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport.  United made the argument that if international traffic was added at Hobby Airport, it would negatively impact the international flights out of Bush Airport.  United said that starting this fall they will have to cut 10% of their flights, which will result in the layoffs of local workers, although Southwest said they won't be starting international flights until 2015.

The above article is a summary.  Please see the source article at Google News.
