In the Nov. 4 Timetable, SJC was up to 80 flights per day. The May schedule changes result in a net increase of 1 flight, so they should be up to 81. Not sure where that fits in with relation to the other cities, though.

The link says Orlando was established in 1996. Surely that is wrong--didn't they pickup Orlando when they bought Muse in 1985? They didn't take an 11-year hiatus when they liquidated Transtar did they? Please tell me I'm not losing my mind here.
No, you are losing your mind! LOL 1996 is correct. I actually started with Southwest in Orlando back in 1997 and the station was very new. It is amazing to see the MCO operation today and how much it has grown. Three little gates back in the days.........for those who flew in/out of MCO back then you'll remember gates 5, 7R and 7L.

That just makes me feel old--1996 seems like yesterday. My recollection was that as it liquidated Transtar in 1987, WN quickly substituted its own service. 1987 was in the midst of WN's California conquest, so I guess it did take a decade for them to get back to Florida.

Quoting Boslax (Reply 10): Top 20 Southwest stations based on average daily departures, February 2008, based on the OAG
Those numbers are just a little off from the current Jan-Mar schedule. Anyway, here are the exact numbers for the summer schedule that starts May 11th, 2008. Also, I made it the top 25 just for fun and added the list of stations with less than 20 flights.

Quoting Bond007 (Reply 20): They actually were exactly the same as mine. My data was purely adding up actual WN flights over the past 14 days.
Not in the case of DAL they weren't. I'm looking at a November 4, 2007 printed timetable and DAL shows 137 daily (at least M-F) departures. Your list shows DAL at 124. Has WN eliminated 13 daily flights between November and the last two weeks? (They haven't)
Quoting Bond007 (Reply 20): Sure give us May 11th numbers, but I guarantee they won't be 'exact' if/when we revisit the list in May (another 3 months yet!)
Yes, actually, they will. If WN cuts frequencies in other markets, they won't take effect until after the end of the current booking schedule which runs part way through August. With regards to discontinued flights, once WN opens up their schedule, it's set in stone.
If WN decides to add new flights, the next round of "new" flights would probably begin in June or later. So May's totals (if N200WN counted right) should be exact.
I was just being pedantic (as usual) ... about in May it'll be this, XXX will add 3 flights next month so this will be different ... of course, I didn't note where the data originated from for the 'official' WN list
You're all correct .... brown nosing now!
I'd rather be on the ground wishing I was in the air, than in the air wishing I was on the ground!
