Monday, Sept. 28, 2015|6:15 p.m.

DALLAS– Southwest Airlines is so bent on reinforcing its grip over Dallas Love Field that it is paying United Airlines $120 million to manage two more gates at the airport near downtown.

Southwest divulged the offer Monday throughout a hearing on a court battle that will certainly identify whether Delta Air Lines can stay at Love Field.

The hearing gave a rare peek into the high-stakes dealing that sometimes takes place in the airline company business as providers contend for limited gates and landing rights.

By subleasing United’s gates through 2028, Dallas-based Southwest now controls 18 of the airport’s 20 gates. Virgin America has the other 2.

Atlanta-based Delta aimed to get the United gates, and Southwest provided them to Delta in exchange for a few of Delta’s important takeoff and landing rights at New york city’s LaGuardia Airport, according to files. Delta passed.

Now U.S. District Judge Ed Kinkeade have to decide whether Delta can keep running 5 air travels a day at city-owned Love Field utilizing a gate that Southwest controls. Southwest, which runs 180 everyday air travels there, states it needs every bit of space it can get, and it wants Delta out as early as this week. Delta also flies to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport eight miles away.

However Delta likes Love Field’s place near some of the most affluent communities in Dallas. The airline company’s leading real estate executive, Holden Shannon, stated federal and city standards must have barred Southwest from purchasing gate space. Delta expected to invest about $300,000 each year for each gate, he stated– $8.4 million through 2028, compared with Southwest’s $120 million.

The hearing was arranged to resume Tuesday, with statement by more Delta Air Lines Inc. and Southwest Airlines Co. executives. Kinkeade forecasted that the losing airline will appeal his judgment.

The judge also expressed surprise at the $120 million price for 2 gates, specifically after learning that made use of jetliners are much cheaper.

So, he asked, “they could have bought eight or 10 airplanes for whatever this gate expense?”
