Dallas-Love bill latest.

Legislation has been introduced in the US Senate aimed at lifting the restrictive Federal Wright Amendment at Dallas Love Field Airport, Texas, a move that could have an adverse effect on Dallas' DFW International. Senator John Ensign's bill would lift the 25-year-old flight restrictions that limit flights from Love to destinations within seven nearby states. DFW-based hub operator American Airlines stated: "This bill would not allow for the introduction of services by other carriers at Love, assure equal access to that airport or provide for the building of new gates or terminals.

"Moreover it does not require Southwest Airlines to make facilities available to other carriers in the absence of new gates, or in any way encourage competitors to enter the market. It also does not propose the lifting of restrictions imposed at other US airports such as Washington Reagan and New York La Guardia."
