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.

I could use an earlier flight from RDU to PHL. 8:05 a.m. is borderline late. Keep up the good work though. Dave

Imagine in this day and age when Free Enterprise has been so maligned...that someone actually is wise enough to admit that they "follow market demand!" Hip, hip, hooray for Southwest - best business model out there in the wild blue yonder!!

Would love to see a flight from Denver to Durango. We can fly from Indy to either Denver or Alberque and drive to Durango, but it would be awsome if you would fly there! 🐵

Can you add the late evening nonstop flights from MDW to JAN? That was a great flight for us to take when we went home to Chicago. I was sad to see that choice disappear for most of the week. Adding flights to Las Vegas too out of Jackson would be great.

What ever happened to your non-stop from Cleveland to Phoenix???? I would think with the Cleveland Indians having their new training facility in Goodyear Az. you would ESPECIALLY HAVE A NON-STOP FROM CLEVELAND TO PHOENIX!!! I truly hope you reconsider putting your non-stop back in service!!! WE MISS NOT BEING ABLE TO TRAVEL ON SOUTHWEST!!!!!!!

I am still hoping that Southwest will start routes from Nashville to Shreveport! My son has been stationed there for years, and there is a HUGE military base there. I have been hoping ever since that crazy act was repealed to see flights to that corner of Louisiana. There aren't even any nonstops from BNA to DFW, much to my dismay. Even then it is still a 3 1/2 hour drive to Shreveport. Please, please, look as this route?

I travel to the Detroit area's northern suburbs on business about once a month. The airport in Flint is so much more convenient for Chrysler, etc. than the distance from Detroit Metro. The airport in Flint has good service but mostly to the East and South. How about it WN?

Thank you so much for "un-cancelling" the non-stop from BWI-LAX! We were ecstatic when you started it this year as it cuts so much time from the long trip out there for business and to visit our son. Please keep this up - I was devastated when I say it was gone after October! Love Southwest and don't ever like to fly anything else so keep adding cities (can't wait for SC so I can do business trips there on SW finally!) and non-stops on long flights!

Atlanta and especially Charlotte are crucial! Asheville would be even better, but at least getting close would help instead of the 4 hour drive to Raliegh!!!! (Yes I do that instead of the 2 hour drive to Charlotte and 1 hour to Ashville...talk about loyal!)

Would love to see a flight to Ft Meyers FL without a plane change. When you are a senior it is hard to change planes. I don't mind a stop in Orlando but to change planes is hard

You'll make a lot of people happy in east TN, if you'd come to Knoxville's McGhee Tyson Airport (TYS). It's not feasible nor economic having to drive 6 hours (round trip) to Nashville to fly with YOU, the airline I prefer. Atlanta's about the same distance, too. (sigh)

I've heard 'rumors' that Southwest is going to begin flights into GSP (Greenville/Spartanburg, SC). I LOVE SOUTHWEST and hope this isn't a rumor. If you are going to be flying into GSP, will there be a flight from SEA?

Newburg, NY to San Diego, CA would be a real boon for both areas..you should consider coming to Newburgh, NY. This airport will soon be the 4th NY airport and is worth consideration!

Please, please, please consider Savannah, GA!! Ever since Independence Air left we've been taking Amtrak! The flight prices here are atrocious! We sometimes fly out of JAX, but usually it's just too tough to add the 2.5 hours drive time in....

Is a Dallas (Love) to Savannah, GA direct flight ever in the cards? Great vacation destination for everyone, and it would help me immensely from a business aspect. Or is the moronic Wright Amendment still in play?

How about putting the flight from Hrtford to San Diego-via Chicago- back on the schedule. It was great to have a choice without getting off the plan and worry about connections.
