    Something else from "the fool". I'll post the link and the entire article. (Seems you have to give an email addy to read it on fool.com.)

By offering significantly more options than their rivals, carriers can charge more for service and become the default choice of airline for that region's passengers. But a battle is shaping up over the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, and the carrier calling Atlanta home is looking to defend it.

    Important airport

    Much longer drive from Buckhead. You are going west of Cobb County for this new airport option. Southwest is also not in favor of this, and the only carriers that I could really see doing anything with this airport are Frontier and Allegiant.
