Cabin Question

New Arrival

Has anyone taken a SW flight that was considered full or close to full in the past week or two?

If so, what was your route?   Even though many planes fly routes that have been mostly empty,  I wanted to know what routes have been more to capacity.

I suspect the full flights that have happened had more to do with an unexpected cancelation than with a specific route being popular. If there are 3 flights per day scheduled and then one gets canceled because of a maintenance or crew issue then all of the passengers from the canceled flight would move to the next flight of the day. I've seen several reports like that.
