There are multiple other threads about this. Basically, it's gone, and it's not coming back. Speculation is that, with so many errors and issues plaguing the website these days, support for this feature was deemed expendable. The official line is that they are "working on" many "exciting new ways" for customers to "discover destinations," but I would't hold my breath.  😞

I miss the getaway finder so much. It was the only way we found our flights. I'm sitting here on my couch over fall break for the first time in about 7 years. I don't have anything booked for winter or spring break.  It's all because this tool was removed and not replaced, despite the promises of something better.

I never used GetAwayFinder.  How different was it from the "interactive route search tool"? https://www.southwest.com/flight/routemap_dyn.html?clk=GSUBNAV-AIR-ROUTEMAP

I can either hover over the city or click on list view, pick a departure, determine whether there are any non-stops by filtering at the top, etc. 

Did the old tool show (accurate) prices?  Anything else?
