Southwest-AirTran? What about fees? First class? Who should worry?

Christopher Miuse, the CEO and founder of, one of the pioneers of airline fee tracking, has his own ideas about what the Southwest/AirTran merger will mean for the industry. He is not buying the Southwest line that they will remain a no-baggage-fee, single-class, open-seating airline after the merger with AirTran. He says the no-baggage-fee mantra will stay, but everything else may and probably will change. Plus, he adds an end-of-the-post shocker.
