Southwest may become world’s biggest airline20 August 2007
Southwest Airlines Co. is on pace to unseat American Airlines this year as the world’s biggest airline, measured by passenger traffic.
The domestic-only discount carrier already eclipsed American’s combined domestic and international traffic during the first five months of 2007, according to a government tally released last week.
Southwest carried 40.3 million passengers on domestic routes between January and May, an increase of 4.2 percent from last year.
