I agree with AWACSooner- I don't think OKC has the O&D to support flights to SFO or LAX ( at least not on aircraft the size of 319s or 320s) so they would have to fill it with connecting pax. Since many of VX's destinations from those cities are on the east coast, pax wanting to go from OKC to, say, JFK would have to backtrack 1800 miles. VX COULD lure pax onto such an itinerary....but they would probably have to lower fares to an uneconomical level.

United 1-2 daily CR7's and we send it out with 30 passengers sometimes. Granted this is a newer developing route, it has massive feed here into SFO. VX wouldn't stand a chance operating this route. It also doesn't fit their model of clientele.
