I’m assuming they’re adding service to O’Hare, not replacing the Midway service with O’Hare. Southwest has just announced that in Houston they’re adding service out of Bush Intercontinental, but they remain the primary carrier out of Hobby Airport. Seems a smart move to have service from both sides of town.

I'm sure they aren't replacing service from Midway, but still, that's pretty much Midway's only big money maker as far as I know, so I'm sure they don't appreciate the competition.

The biggest reason is look at how Chicago sprawl north & west, in addition to the demographics on that side of Chicagoland. It's the wealthier and much more white collar business-side. A good number of folks probably find it fairly out of the way to fly in/out of Midway versus O'Hare. That's why they're doing it also with Houston-Bush (IAH). Large corporate campuses and higher end suburban growth is west & north of the city, so it's trying to capture the market on that side of the metro area.  

This is all about finding business where you can and utilizing the assets you have versus just sitting on your hands.

Yes @NashRugger. Southwest has reached the point where they must add new destinations to grow. They are going into places like Chicago O'Hare and Houston Bush because people want to fly there. The thought is to gain additional business, but it is also understood that some travelers will choose to switch to the other airport, which has higher landing fees and per passenger costs.

British Airways axes Nashville for another month, and I honestly believe they will not return until at least April at the earliest. They're only flying to bigger hubs, and that's limited at best right now.

International air travel remains highly restricted and things are getting worse as COVID-19 spikes globally. As such there is zero possibility of the British Airways nonstop flight resuming until next summer — at the earliest.  There is simply no demand right now, even to much larger markets. .
