Re: Southwest should start flying to these cities

Actually, several airlines stopped Mexico City service.


I believe the motivating factor was that most people flying the route were coming from the US. As I understand it, there were few passengers that originated in Mexico.


Thus it was difficult to get enough passenger to have the route make sense.

@dfwskier I'm sure that had something to do with it, if it made money, it wouldn't have stopped.  You might know, just when the NFL started to do Monday Night Football games in Mexico City, the team I support was playing that game.  SWA stopped flying there several months earlier.  It's been my life, so I'm used to it.   I'm sure that just suggesting a city won't make it change if it doesn't fit a business model to make money.   I'd love to see them go to Missoula, MT, Cheyenne, WY, Bismark, ND, Anchorage, AK, Toronto, Vancouver Canada, and so on.  Hummm, why no flight at all to Canada?  Does anyone have that answer?
