The Dallas Morning News (http://bit.ly/1GaC1QR ) reports the current parking garage and nearby privately run lots have about 9,000 slots. Space ran out over the Thanksgiving holiday period.

Southwest Airlines Co. occupies most of the 20 gates at Love Field, which is its main hub. The new terminal airport opened in April 2013.
