· Southwest Airlines:
Slowly but surely they are going to take over all of the country’s airports, but this week Southwest Airlines is focusing on places like Tennessee, Washington, and California. The free bags will be flying from Nashville to San Diego, Kansas City, Seattle, and Providence, beginning when the warmer weather comes around next year. They’re mixing things up next spring, and will also be adding some new seasonal flights while reducing flights to places like Fort Myers and Phoenix.
· United Airlines:
Remember last week when American Airlines was all proud of their new flight to China? Well someone else in Los Angeles was pretty jealous, and now they’re looking to get in on the sweet and sour chicken for themselves. United Airlines has announced that they’re also planning to fly from LA to Shanghai. It’s not totally official yet, but the airline has asked Uncle Sam for the okay to do so about six weeks following the new flights that American Airlines has planned. Maybe all these new options can get us to China for a little less Renminbi.

Residents of Hawaii just got a little luckier, as they’ll now have a new option to roll the dice with nonstop service between Maui and Las Vegas. Hawaiian Airlines will run flights to Sin City on Mondays and Thursdays—awesome for a long weekend—and the routes will be served by Boeing 767-300 aircraft. Returning flights will head back to paradise on Sundays and Wednesdays right around dinnertime assuming that you didn’t pawn your return ticket.
