NEW SERVICE IN NOVEMBER!

Bill

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  Today we're announcing service effective November 7th in four markets--two brand newbies, one returning after a brief vacation, and one that we just can't bear to drop.

First-time Southwest nonstops will take wing between Phoenix and Ft. Lauderdale with one daily roundtrip as well as double-daily roundtrips between Austin and San Jose, CA (yes--our very own "Nerd Bird!").  Phoenix-Ft. Lauderdale is a natural for us, and is timed to perfectly complement our existing service between Las Vegas and Lauderdale.  The new Austin-San Jose service (obviously) connects two of the biggest high-tech centers in the world, but also connects two important centers of higher education--so while it's the Google-Dell connection, it's also the Stanford-UT hook-up!

Returning after a short hiatus is nonstop service between St. Louis and Seattle.   This has been a *strong* performer this summer, and for the winter season it will be a perfect connector between Seattle and Florida.

And the market we just can't get rid of--we're "un-cancelling" our nonstop Baltimore-Los Angeles service...again!  We (of course) follow market demand, the demand for this market continues--and so will the flight.

All of this service is now available at southwest.com and the other usual places where you can buy seats on Southwest.  So what're you waiting for?  Fly somewhere, dang it!  Have a great week, everyone.

PLEASE look into the Charlotte market. US Air owns that area and they need some competition. I would use you every time! 😉

Now just add nonstop between MSP and AUS and we're set!

Can you confirm planned cancellation of nonstop service between LAS (Las Vegas) and ISP (Long Island)? If so, what is the effective date and will it occur for either or both directions? If my information is correct about such a planned change, might it be replaced with nonstop (both directions) between LGA (New York La Guardia and LAS? My mother-in-law has grown fond of the LAS/ISP nonstop route. Thanks for any update or correction you can provide. I would hate to steer to that "color" company. We love SW!

THANK YOU FOR KEEPING THE BALTIMORE TO LOS ANGELES FLIGHT. I WAS SORRY TO SEE IF OFF THE LAST SCHEDULE. HOPEFULLY IT WILL STAY AROUND FOR A LONG TIME AND GET A LOT OF PASSENGERS. PLEASE ADD MORE TRANS-CONTINENTAL SERVICE FROM BALTIMORE.

At the next available opportunity, Southwest should "nerdify" the flight numbers for the "Nerd Bird" flights. A few ideas off the top of my head: 1337 ("Leet"), 314 (pi), 1010 (flight 10 in binary), 42 ("Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life the Universe and Everything"), 1138 ("THX-1138"),

Please consider adding non-stop svc from MCI to SLC. Right now Delta has such a lock on that market. When you guys had it, we flew it all the time.

I am hoping you will add more non-stop flights from JAX to PHL and vice-versa. Jacksonville, FL is one of the biggest growing cities in the country right now!

It would be nice if SWA would bring back the direct flights between Amarillo and Albuquerque. I used to make that flight several times a year. Please bring it back!!!

It would be great for you to have a flight from Charlotte, NC or Greenville/Spartanburg, SC to Akron Canton, OH. There is a lot of people who travel there all the time. Please give it some great consideration. We would use it all the time. Thanks

Southwest- Give some LUV to Reno! How about some non-stops from Orange County or Ontario to Reno? Us fun in the sun 365 days a year peeps need our fix of snow skiing, mountain hiking and beautiful Lake Tahoe, without having to go to trashy LAX or through one of the Bay Area airports.

Non-stop from MSP to CMH would be wonderful!

What are the chances of Southwest ever flying out of White Plains, NY (Westchester County Airport)? It's such a great alternative to LaGuardia and Newark. Seems like that would be a more likely spot for Southwest than LaGuardia.

Are you ever going to bring back the Honolulu route? Also, is there a way to get snacks without MSG/autolyzed yeast extract, etc. in them when on your flights?

Love the St. Louis to Ft. Myers, Florida flights. The non-stopper is NICE! The scheduling of the connector through Orlando is a workable alternate when time is an issue. This is a "Loveable" schedule combination.

Bring back the non stop between VEGAS and ISLIP please....why did you take that away???? Huge amount of LI'ers travel to VEGAS and have moved to vegas....they travel between those 2 hubs for a multitude of reasons...I have NEVER been on the non-stop flight between those 2 cities that wasn't a full flight in the last 6 years....why did you eliminate it? Unless and Until it returns, I will now consider other airlines to travel between the NY and Vegas market....for 6 years I have only flown SWA....that will now change!

New Orleans to Austin would be splendid.

You need to add a stop on your Nashville, TN to New Orleans, LA route. You need to stop in Shreveport every time or at least once a day. There are numerous people here that have moved from Shreveport and would be of service getting to visit our families. Also Shreveport has become a big hub of casinos and that would be good for your business too. Please add this back on, years ago you used to stop in Shreveport, La.

I think Southwest should fly out of Atlantic City!!!!! Spirit has no competition there and you would totally dominate the East Coast! AND you could offer southwest vacations to Atlantic City and the Jersey Shore! Even Philly ( only 45 minutes from there) or NYC ( about 90 minutes!) Totally worth looking into!!!!LOVE YOU GUYS!!

How about adding Worcester MA to your territory? There is only one airline and a brand new airport!! I know you would get people to go there who normally have to go to MHT, PVD or BOS! It would be a huge gain for you!!

How come you don't have any flights coming back from Albuquerque, NM that stop in Baltimore. I like taking the Norfolk flight to BWI and then nonstop on to Albuquerque. I will be moving to Raleigh sooo maybe that will be better to fly to Albuquerque, NM by way of Southwest. I LOVE SOUTHWEST AND WILL ALWAYS FLY YOUR BIRD!!!

I wish you would bring back the non-stop flights between Philadelphia and Austin! I never understood getting rid of that when the flights I was on were always full or close to it, and I was flying every month or at least every other month.
