Arrow Who will take over FL/WN slots in ATL?

It was just announced on Jane's that Southwest has officially de-hubbed KATL. I am curious as to what airline(s) will take over their slots and gates?
DL will now have a massive monopoly in ATL.

I thought they already had a massive monopoly....

This will make them basically the only carrier there besides some international carriers, and a few hub cities for other airlines like DFW, ORD, BWI, EWR, LGA, CLT etc.

jetbluefan....This month alone I have had the opportunity to photograph ATL from a helicopter above twice. DL is the massive major carrier there but from a 2000' above perspective AirTran occupied one of the terminals completely at one time.

As much as I would love to have seen that, sadly, those days are long over, now it will be Delta, followed by Delta, followed by Delta.

The last I heard is that Southwest still plans on operating roughly the same amount of flights it does now (Around 175) but they won't have banks of flights. They are simply trying to smooth out the schedule, eliminating connections while maintaining the number of flights, in an attempt to increase local traffic.
