I know Southwest added alot of nonstop flights last year to new destinations like MCI, DEN, LAS, etc but I was just wondering what you guys think moving foward for Southwest in FLL? I know B6 is moving terminals in 2 weeks so I am sure there will be more gate space if needed but in the near term do you see much more added from FLL?

The way WN is adding new stations these days, about all I see being added to any existing stations is service to the new cities. WN is reducing service at many, many cities this year, due to the economy as well as the need for a/c to service all the new stations, and they are adding very little in the way of p-t-p service between mature stations.

Of course FLL is in a good position to see service to the new cities, expecially this winter, so I could certainly see new service such as MKE, LGA, MSP and/or BOS later this year. (Unfortunately, I also see the chances for a FLL-SAN n/s -- my hope -- as ~.00000000001!)

The only two cities that I think make sense are BMH and ORF. ABQ could work, but not in this environment. MHT has proven it could only be a seasonal destination.

Loads for the new routes have been pretty good. For example, for February: ALB (83.9%), DEN (85.1%), LAS (95.6%), MCI (86.5%).

For the first three months of the year, WN is now the largest carrier at FLL, surpassing NK. WN carried about 941,000 (+13% YOY) and NK about 901,000 (-2.7% YOY).

BOS, MSP, and MKE are of course possibilities, but I think those would come much further down the line for the development of those stations.

Does FLL still plan on adding a Concourse A to Terminal 1 for WN?

BDL and SAT make sense as well, IMO.

I don't think that is true at all. In this current environment, that is true, but in better times, this can work year-round as can, as you mentioned, potentially ABQ.

How about a 2nd frequency to RDU? there are only 2 non-stops on WN and B6.. surely another non-stop could work from one of them?


Aiming High and going far..
