Ben Mutzabaugh reports in his USA Today "Today in the Sky" blog that Southwest Airlines plans to "add New York LaGuardia as its newest destination. With the move, Southwest throws yet another surprise at industry observers who had been trying to forecast where the USA's largest low-cost carrier would fly next." Southwest has in the past avoided airports such as LaGuardia, which is prone to traffic and weather delays. Just this week, the airport was virtually shut down due to high winds, a fact I can attest to since my flight from Ft. Lauderdale via JetBlue this past Sunday was diverted to Kennedy.
