    The one thing I really like about JBLU,besides being a clean nice ride, is the gates at major AP's like JFK and BOS. This carrier is a diamond and DAL and LUV are looking at the possibility of acquiring through a merger or buyout. Don't think so? Both of these companies are salivating at the possibilities. ALK paid way too much for Virgin America and they now know it. My choice is LUV. This fills in all the blanks for SW. I do see a problem with aircraft type but all carriers have for the most part different types of aircraft. DAL will probably make a play also and it will send the stock price soaring. What is stopping this now is LUV settling its cost of new contracts with employees. When that is settled hold on for a great ride.

    Sentiment: Buy

    You may not like Mr. Kelly but his numbers are incredible and that is not a empty statement. He is no Herb Kelleher when it comes to his employees, but there will never be a Herb again. But LUV is expanding and making tons of money and that is what I thought this site was all about. INVESTING not complaining....
    Barron's just LUV a $55 price target roughly and that is good news for all here in LUV. Not charging for bags is a strategy for SWA and it gets more new flyers than losing because of it. I am very long here and it will pay in the end. Bought a huge chunk when it was $5 way back when and sold it at $41. If I were you I would get in now while it is still low and ride it with a MARKET STOP at $45 or if you have balls like me ride it to at least $52. LUV may acquire another carrier in the next 12 to 18 months and you can make your own guess on that.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
