International flights non-stop from Arizona

New Arrival

Am I just missing something here?  I can't seem to find any non-stop flights from either of Arizona's international airports to any destinations shown in the latest pairings. Please explain why this obvious choice for such flights doesn't appear.

Well, with more than 34 planes grounded to to MAX issues (and likely more than that unavailable as MAX that would have been delivered since the grounding have not been), the airline can't fly to everywhere from everywhere else.


Further, the airline flies routes that make the most economic sense. SW is in business to serve passenger's as well as it's owners - it's stockholders. If it makes more sense to use planes elsewhere as opposed to using them for international service from Arizona, it will do so.
