NEW SERVICE IN NOVEMBER!

Bill

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  Today we're announcing service effective November 7th in four markets--two brand newbies, one returning after a brief vacation, and one that we just can't bear to drop.

First-time Southwest nonstops will take wing between Phoenix and Ft. Lauderdale with one daily roundtrip as well as double-daily roundtrips between Austin and San Jose, CA (yes--our very own "Nerd Bird!").  Phoenix-Ft. Lauderdale is a natural for us, and is timed to perfectly complement our existing service between Las Vegas and Lauderdale.  The new Austin-San Jose service (obviously) connects two of the biggest high-tech centers in the world, but also connects two important centers of higher education--so while it's the Google-Dell connection, it's also the Stanford-UT hook-up!

Returning after a short hiatus is nonstop service between St. Louis and Seattle.   This has been a *strong* performer this summer, and for the winter season it will be a perfect connector between Seattle and Florida.

And the market we just can't get rid of--we're "un-cancelling" our nonstop Baltimore-Los Angeles service...again!  We (of course) follow market demand, the demand for this market continues--and so will the flight.

All of this service is now available at southwest.com and the other usual places where you can buy seats on Southwest.  So what're you waiting for?  Fly somewhere, dang it!  Have a great week, everyone.

How about Non Stop from St Louis to Fort Walton Beach/Destin. That way I do not have to take another airline?

Any chance that you will ever go MCO to Bakersfield, CA? Crazy about Southwest. Great employees and service. Now, how about a movie on long flights?

Are you considering commencing service between Southern California - SNA and LAX to Asheville. I think it would be a wonderful market for you and I know many people who will use it.

The nonstop from Orlando to Dulles is stopping in 2 weeks and changing to a one stop route through Chicago (not really on the way to DC from FL). I fly this for business at least every other week. Orlando is not my closest airport (an additional hour in each direction ) and even though there is non stop service to BWI, this is NOT a good alternative as it is NOWHERE near DC - (try making an evening flight fighting the traffic from the District). The Orlando/Dulles flight is ALWAYS full (no matter which day/time I have flown) and has a large amount of business travelers (as I always sit and talk with the same people in the exit rows each time I fly). And in talking with these other business passengers, we all agree that as much as we love SWA, we will be using a different carrier.

Please put in a direct flight with no stops from Orlando, FL to Oklahoma City, OK and vice-versa. We travel that route several times a year and it is hard for us to change planes and have lay overs with babies!

How about a non-stop between San Antonio and Austin? I hate that 2 hour drive! Actually a stop in New Braunfels or Seguin would be ok, as long as I didn;t have to change planes. 🙂

Please consider ATW (Appleton/Green Bay, WI) to Vegas. Many people I know fly out of ATW because MKE is too far away, parking is outrageous, and the traffic around MKE sucks. Has been under construction for about 10 years now, with no let up in sight. Go head to head with Allegiant, and kick their butts because you LOVE bags!

What happened to the SEA - STL direct? It was here and now it seems to be gone. American dropped their service as well. Fortunately, Alaska is picking it up, but not until 09/27/2010, This direct flight is always full and I cannot understand why everyone is pulling out!

Will SW be adding more non-stop flights from Philadelphia to Las Vegas in the next couple of months? They are needed!

I am hoping with the takeover of AirTran, you will have stops in Portland Maine or Bangor. Manchester is nice, but too far.
