DALLAS-- Three Dallas City Hall sources have now confirmed that the highly sought after gates at Love Field Airport will go to Virgin Airlines.

A memo from the Dallas city manager is expected to come out Friday afternoon.

Virgin America will sub-lease the gates from American Airlines. The airliner had launched a glitzy media campaign in efforts to win over passengers and the city of Dallas.

It even had the support of theU.S. Department of Justice.

Dallas-based Southwest Airlines had lobbied for those gates as well. News 8 caught up with Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly at a public appearance at Oak Hill Academy in Dallas.

Kelly says he has yet to be notified of any decision.

News 8 was also told that attorneys for Virgin Airlines and the city are still working through the fine print, but the official announcement is expected later Friday.
