DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Southwest Airlines Co. is raising the ante over Dallas Love Field Airport.

The airline said Monday it’ll begin flying next year from Dallas to Boston; Oakland and San Jose, Calif.; Portland, Ore.; and Panama City Beach, Fla. The Wright Amendment, a law banning flights with large planes like Southwest’s Boeing 737s from most anything other than non-stop flights to destinations within Texas and neighboring states, expires in October. Southwest recently announced the first 15 cities it’ll serve.

Southwest says that if it gets two more gates that American Airlines must sell, it’ll fly to San Francisco and Sacramento, Calif.; Seattle; Minneapolis; Philadelphia; Newark, N.J.; Detroit; Indianapolis; Memphis, Tenn.; Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham, N.C.; and Charleston, S.C.

Delta Air Lines Inc. and Virgin America also want the gates. The Justice Department will decide. American agreed to sell them to settle a government lawsuit against its merger with US Airways.
