So I have heard about WN starting operations at Dulles soon. Does anyone know how soon they are planning to open it up? Also what would be the top 5 destinations we could see WN start right away from IAD?

I'm thinking that one of the IAD destinations may be RDU. Isn't there as high-tech corridor near Dulles with lots of technology businesses? Since RDU is also a city with lots of high tach businesses there may be a potential for lots of business traffic between the two.

I am not sure where, but when I was at the American Association for Airport Executive conference in San Diego last month, a lady from the Washington Airport Authority in a round table large hub meeting said that Southwest was going to be starting this summer some time.

If WN was to go IAD-FLL they'd break the "gentleman's agreement" with B6. However, B6 is breaking the agreement with BUR-LAS...IAD-FLL is a much more important route, and if WN picked that route, not only would it be stupid with 2 competing carriers, one of which a LCC as well as a competiting carrier out of DCA, but it could lead to an all out war between B6 and WN. As far as LAS is concerned, yes B6 flies there, but WN has proven that 1X daily does not effect the operations of other airlines on the route, so I do not think that would be an issue.

Quoting WN57787 (Reply 18): WN is adding a gate in PIT , and adding staffing.... UA,US has service to DCA/IAD and BWI and DH had 8 flts to IAD I think pit has a chance to get 2 flts to IAD but we will see what WN decides to do..
So now WN will have A1, A3, and A5, or are they going to add A7?
I am excited for the announcement of the cities that will be served from IAD and i'm not quite sure why.
I think IAD-DEN could do really well!
