Quoting sdoyon (Reply 3): Quoting ryanrap1 (Reply 2):I was trying to book HOU to Key West and its saying there are no flights. Was looking for around Feb 20th. Can anyone advise why
Probably no connections on the HOU-MCO/TPA-EYW routes
It appears during that schedule period EYW is only reachable from HOU on Saturdays. Flight 2015 HOU-TPA and Flight 1957 TPA-EYW. The return is available any day of the week through MCO only.
Next flights: WN DSM-LAS-PHX, US PHX-SJD. Return: US SJD-PHX, WN PHX-MDW-DSM

Quoting Stackhouse007 (Reply 8): Obviously they have considered this not to be an issue since they are following through with the flights but I just never realized an airport this small could handle that size of a plane.
Delta doesn't seem to have an issue running 73Gs and A319s into EYW, so why would WN ?

Quoting Stackhouse007 (Reply 8): So there will be no issues flying a 737 full of passengers and luggage into an airport with a sub 5,000ft runway? What about taking off full of fuel and pax?
This is a common mistake folks make in slinging around the term "full". You could probably put 143 overweight people, each holding solid iron bars in their hands, and take off fine for a flight to MSY, TPA, or MCO. The fuel load for these trips in extremely light. You won't see anyone flying EYW - west coast.
