As a former resident I still love the Emerald City and for years have visited friends and family there, always on Southwest. They visit me in the southwest when the weather is sunny here and grey in Seattle and always fly Southwest. I just went to book my next trip to Seattle only to find that Southwest has discontinued all non-stop flights between Albuquerque and Seattle. A 3 hour trip will now take over 7 hours and involve changing planes. I am SO BUMMED!! I love Southwest but now Alaska Airlines has put on an non-stop. Is Southwest just in effect ceding the route between Seattle and Albuquerque to Alaska??? No one is going to add 4 hours and plane changes to a trip. C'mon, Southwest!!! Give us back at least one non-stop a day! We don't want to switch!
