Southwest Starting LAS-STL

Sun Sep 08, 2002 11:33 pm

good to see some new service is being added to STL. Im curious why N9 is in Midway and ORD. Whats the point to that strategy???? I would think that if I owned an airline like that I would have invested in like MCI or MKE or MSP. I just dont get National.........Sun Country too with SEA-PDX. It seems like they have fourth graders doing some of their routings. DEN-Laughlin HUGE market there. LOL
Thx,

N9 started at Midway because it did not have slots for service @ ORD annd their investing partners recognized Chicago as a great travel market (to their flagship casino). They continued MDW after because they figured out that it was worth it (or it minimized the loss). Now they are dropping MDW while terminal construction takes place.

I'm happy that people from STL don't have to stop in MCI or MDW to get to vegas now!

Just to correct everyone, N7 is the correct code for National  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

AA-STL,

Denver (DEN) - Laughlin (IFP) is a scheduled charter route. Sun Country has a contract with this one casino in Laughlin to fly to various US destinations to bring gamblers to this casino.
