No Sightings of Green Shoots in 2010 from Southwest's Flight Deck

According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly does not anticipate a rebound in business travel in 2010.  Kelly, who was speaking at an analyst conference had this to say:
"Southwest has not seen an uptick in business travel this fall. "Business travel continues to lag, and I'm not comfortable reporting any improvement in that market. I don't think it's gotten worse, but I'm not expecting strong economic growth in 2010 or a rebound in business travel."
2010 is not looking like any picnic we'd like to attend.
