Travel to Cancun from Austin - What happened to my direct flight?

We used to be able to travel from AUS to CUN non stop. Now we have to go through DEN, ATL or HOU and the travel time increased from about 3 hrs to 8 hours. This is such a bummer. Has anyone else noticed this?

I haven't noticed that route, specifically. But I know that it doesn't mean it's lost forever. RNO to OAK is a good example. They got rid of that route a couple years ago, but it came back this year. 

 

Sorry about the increased travel time though. That stinks.

If you haven't already, call and ask a customer service agent to help you find the shortest route.    He or She may be able to find one that saves time even though it flys in a direction you may not think of looking.    An agent helped me with this a few years ago when a route was changed that I was taking frequently.    At least it will be on the SWA radar that folks like you need the route back.  🙂    Good luck.
