I would like to know why SWA has not taken advantage of the ripe Northern California market - in particular the Humboldt, Eureka, Arcata area? It is no secret that United has and uses their monopoly of the ACV airport. Alaska Air does hang a sign within, yet both airlines (in my opinion) offer a very minimal amount of efficiently routed, reasonably priced flights to the south, particularly to any of SWA's popular California and Nevada stops.
I'm not the only disgruntled flyer at this airport. I have found there are many business commuters, attorney's, student's, and general visitors that feel they have been taken advantage of. Likewise, I've heard a similar question many times: Does... or Why doesn't Southwest fly here?
So, would someone please explain to myself and other's, the reason SWA doesn't fly into ACV (Arcata), and are there any plans to, and any other particulars to this game?
PS. As a newbie to bloging and not knowing how or where to post a new topic. I chose what seemed closest to the issue - San Francisco.
