In case you didn't know the Wright Amendment restrictions were expiring in October....

Photo 1I don't get over to Dallas Love Field that often since I'm a Fort Worth resident, but on Monday, after I attended Southwest Airlines's press conference to announce new international service, I decided to take a drive by the other airport in the Metroplex.

But in case you didn't know the Wright Amendment restrictions were expiring in October, Southwest has put up plenty reminders as you enter Dallas Love Field.

Three billboards sit at the intersection of Mockingbird Lane and Cedar Springs Lane, proclaiming the end of Wright is near - 37 weeks to be exact, according to one of the signs.

Photo (12)There are over a dozen billboards along Mockingbird Lane from Southwest with sayings like "Let's Re-Wright the Rules on Love" and "Nonstop Love. All Flight Long."

The Wright Amendment restrictions are scheduled to expire in October and when lifted, will allow airlines to fly to any destination in the U.S.

Southwest hasn't announced what its plans are for the nonstop routes out of Love Field although it is expected the airline will reveal the flights when it updates its schedule this spring.

Here are some of the signs that Southwest put together for their ad campaign that bombards Dallas drivers as they enter the airport.
