WN will be releasing their latest schedules on JUL 9. Any speculation on possible new cities to be announced? This new release would be good through mid-February 2013. Any chance for Hawaii or Puerto Rico announcements?
My posts/replies are strictly my opinion and not that of any company, organization, or Southwest Airlines.

I highly doubt any HI or SJU since the FA's voted down their "Near Intl" (including SJU) TA recently and thus we can't even start overwater training until that's all hammered out. Since there's no definitive time-line on that I doubt they'll make a service announcement.

Quoting OzarkD9S (Reply 1): If anything, expect more FL flights transitioned to WN. MKE especially, since WN seems about halfway there already, and maybe some MCO/BWI as well.
I will be pleasantly surprised with the announcement of any new city or city-pair additions.
I agree with OZ....perhaps more FL>WN migration but thats about it. As much as I would love to see new city pairs announced, the 9 July release would mean October-December flying....kind of a bad time to start up new routes. Only caveat is seasonal sun destination stuff.....WN never really chased that in the past (other than adjusting frequencies) but we all know that todays WN isnt your dads WN

You got that right!
I will continue to hope to see SAN-ATL begin sometime in 2013 but I'm not holding my breath. As said earlier, Jan/Feb is not the time to expect to see much in the way of new p-2-p routes started by any carrier.

I could see an announcment for some near intl flying with FL metal, but I dont see anything major coming from the WN side. Seems to be in the short term the WN FAs may have cheated themselves out of additional trips and handed them to the FL side. . .well see. . . .

If a new city is announced I would think it would be non-stop from/to ATL. Looking at the WN interactive route map i saw twelve non-stop locations from the ATL. ATL-BNA has to be on the shortlist in that BNA is a focus city for WN.
