Sweet, that fills a pretty big hole in their Florida coverage.  Also, Long Beach (southern CA) announced this week that Southwest is basically taking over that airport, gaining access to 34 of the 53 daily flights allowed at that airport.

WOW, and I was looking into flights to Denver, Colorado, and what pops up, Flights to Steamboat Springs!!!  And flying from Albuquerque, NM the fares were OUTSTANDING.   So I actually looked into booking late for the 3 day weekend.  What I found out, i can fly there for around 250, but going to spend $700 in rental cars, lodging and meals for 3 days.  That is if there are any rental cars left.

No estimated date on when this might start.  I also heard somewhere, flight to Ft. Meyers?
