Dear Southwest,

Welcome to the neighborhood; we’re pleased to learn that you have more gates and greater presence here at DCA. One reminder though:  please observe the posted noise abatement regs. For example, we’ve noticed a trend that SW hugs the western side of the Potomac and turns west earlier than other airlines.  This overflies our homes here in Old Town. A few of my buddies and I are watching dcawebtrak and the historical stats are interesting. We commend it for your consideration – although I’m sure you have better data than we do.

We’re glad to have you in the neighborhood – and want you to be a welcome neighbor!

Thanks much!

Cheers,

Mike Waschull
