THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.
I jumped for joy when I heard a non-stop from my new home (RDU) to my old home (STL). I've always thought it would be a great flight with connection to LUV for all those hi-tech companies. The news that BNA and STL will be connected is GRREEAT, too. That means If I can't make the non-stop, I won't have to connect through Midway with its complete lack of seating when I fly to STL to visit the fam. Hope you make tons of money and expand it the route.

This is great. I am stoked. Going to colledge in OMA, I have friends and family in MSP, STL, OMA, MDY, and MCO. Although I hear A LOT of people requesting direct flights from MSP to one of these cities, keep in mind that Southwest has an obligation to Chicago to board a set number of people at each of the gates they purchased from ATA. If they cannot do this they will be subject to a penatly. If the economics justify it, they will bypass Midway, but having connections in Midway keeps it simple increases traffic through one of their de facto hubs. However, if we are going to make suggestions, I think either a MSP to MCO or STL and MSP to DEN and MSP to LVS will be the natural choices. (I personally think OMA to MCO is a good option too if gas prices remain under $2.50 for Jet A. Just my 2 cents.
