Factors that might inhibit successThe optimal strategic alternative in my opinion is for Southwest to partner up with another company to give the consumers more bang for their buck. A factor that can limit this opportunity is the recent outbreak of the corona virus. Due to this recent outbreak not a lot of people are willing to go on a plain especially when the only source of oxygen is the recycled air everyone else breathes or coughs into. This can limit the amount of partnerships Southwest can build due to the fact that the amount of people traveling is decreasing. This also puts Southwest
7Southwest airlinesin the position to get taken advantage of. This can be corrected by assuring that the virus will pass in due time and business will resume as normal. Another factor that may play a role is the amount of money the airline will discount for the package. If Southwest is the one whose contribution margin decreases, they would not be able to make a profit from these partnerships. In order to combat this Southwest can ask the businesses they are partnering with to take on some of the loss as well, so one company is not losing more than the other. Elements for growthAlthough Southwest’s focus at this time is not to increase the size of their firm, other aspects of the company lend to grow such as customer loyalty and building relationships with their passengers. In order to achieve this growth, the company should simply continue to do whatthey do best and give their passengers the best experience they can. Whether it is through their price, the frees bag check in, or just the caring culture of the company. As one says, the easiest customer a company can get is a customer they already have.Conclusion The qualities of Southwest Airlines offer help for guaranteeing competitive advantage and productive business. For instance, the solid brand and versatility of activities encourage the organization's conceivable venture into extra business flying markets. Notwithstanding, the shortcomings distinguished right now show that Southwest Airlines has procedures that limit its present business productivity and development. In any case, the organization can develop through new procedures to abuse openings in the worldwide common aeronautics showcase, for example, business extension and the foundation of new associations. In any case, the dangers in the business condition force pressure on Southwest Airlines to consider imaginative or radical

Thinking about the interior variables and outside components, it is suggested that the organization grow its activities to other air travel markets. This proposal tends to Southwest's potential income and benefit development through global extension. Another suggestion is to grow new partnerships with different aircraft or integral non-carrier organizations, as an approach to expand the organization's compass in the worldwide market.
