Added Flying for Thanksgiving


Heads-up, Turkey-day travellers!  We just added some extra sections for the Saturday and Sunday after Thanksgiving in some markets to meet Customer demand (thanks, Bob J. in Schedule Planning and Allan K. in Revenue Management!).  It's not a lot of flights--we're a little constrained on aircraft availability for the Thanksgiving period, but we worked creatively with our colleagues and friends in Maintenance Planning, Charters, and Ground Operations, and we've been able to find available aircraft time to put these flights into the schedule.  We will, of course, keep looking to see if we can add even more seats where the advance bookings tell us we're not going to have enough.  It's like planning the Thanksgiving feast--you never want to run out of turkey, dressing, or mashed potatoes--and we don't want to run out of seats for you guys!

Extra sections are listed below and all are available for sale at or 1-800-IFLYSWA.
