For MSP, I would bet WN adds TPA and RSW, Saturday-only for the Spring Break season. MCO will continue as a Saturday-only flight (currently Nov-Mar). LAS may return, ALSO as Saturday only, but possibly daily, only for Mar/Apr. This is the way it was in 2018 and nearly every year prior. No surprises....
