Wow!!! This is great news for WN and adds more flights to OAK, BDL, & JAX and it was more than of cities out of PHL. I spoke with my friend Mark was told me about these flights are very full on out of PHL and they are doing so well.

Now, they will make more cities of MDW, MHT, PVD, LAS, PHX, LAX, HOU, MSY, RDU, MCO, TPA, PBI & FLL. And will be adds 3 more cities to OAK, BDL, & JAX and it is whole of 15 cities out of PHL and they are doing well for more than of 60,000 customers.

Anyone have any idea why they haven't started service to BNA yet? Seems like a natural fit to me

No, it will not begin for nonstop from PHL-BNA and which one is only for one-stop service to RDU for same plane on their way to BNA. It can make it with their flights to BNA.

Hey Freshlove1 - are you confusing the Philadelphia Inquirer with the National Enquirer? The Philadelphia Inquirer is the city's main newspaper and it is how most everybody in the Philadelphia metropolitan area start their day.

I believe it. There was a thread on this forum as well as one over at flyertalk wondering why Southwest hadn't extended their schedule beyond Oct. 29 yet and the speculation was that they'd announce another round of new flights at their earnings conference call tomorrow and were waiting for the announcement to extend the schedule.

BDL and OAK don't surprise me, but JAX does in that US Airways already offers service at a pretty decent price. Without going back and checking, I think US average fare was around $127.00 each way, so it's not like they're gougin customers on this route.

BDL is a different story, though. US' average one-way fare PHL-BDL is well over $200.00 each way (for a 196mile trip), so BDL-PHL seems like a natural. Southwest had already announced Saturday-only nonstop to OAK (hadn't they?) and that's often times an indicator that daily service will soon follow.

Just curious...how long do you think before PHL starts to choke on it's new found success? Any sort of WX turns PHL into one of the flow control capitals of the western world.
With USAir determined to defend PHL as a 'fortress hub' and Southwest seemingly determined to expand there as quickly as possible, how long before the airport reaches the breaking point?

I was wondering the same thing..

How long before the sides of the PHL barrel burst and everything just blows to heck? From what I can recall of my travels through PHL.. it wasn't that timely B4 WN appeared.. I wonder how it is going to fair now?

If US goes out of business, PHL suddenly becomes a lot less busy. Even if other airlines move in to fill the void, I doubt it'll be AS busy as it is now.
Ask why..

PHLBOS,

Thanks for showing me with the news about PHL and this is really great news for more service to BDL, OAK, & JAX. I think would be wonderful for more excellent service to PHL.

Also, they adds more flights from PHL to FLL, LAX, MDW & MHT. It is wonderful flight to PHL and which one is always full on their way.

Regards!

This is WN's chance to do something really, really sneaky!
If I was them I would apply for LCC slots at LGA--they always grant these slots to the LCCs. I would just get 5 or so and start 5 daily flights from LGA to PHL.
US would go nuts! And WN would finally have an entrance into the NYC market. It is a great opportunity. They shouldn't even think of JFK or EWR on this one. Go right for the Lion's heart at LGA!

How many more flights can WN add before it reaches its capacity on the gates it currently has?

They can probably max out the gates at 44/45 flts a day. That's around 11 flts a day per gate. So they can only add 2 or 3 flts after the october schedule, unless somehow they can get a handle on more exsisting gates, since new ones won't be completed for at least 1 or 2 years

would they be able to do some "moving around?" Maybe move Northwest to concourse A...that would free up some space  Big thumbs up It seems like PHL is doing well for Southwest and if they are not able to expand anymore because of space, then that would be sad  Sad

If push came to shove regarding available gates, WN could utilize the old Overseas Terminal which is still there. After going through security at Terminal E, passengers can be directed to a courtesy bus that could take them to/from the plane. I believe there are a couple of exit doors at Terminal E that presently workers use to get to the aircraft apron outside. One downside (and certainly not the only one) to this would be the longer baggage transport time from E to the Overseas Terminal.

At present, usually during the late evening and early morning hours I've seen a few planes parked at the old Overseas Terminal (which is visable from I-95); usually CO, NW, UA and even YX.

Maybe move Northwest to concourse A

I do not believe that A-East or A-West has 3 spare gates for NW to move. They presently use E2, E4, & E6.

Maybe WN can use the spare Gate D12 next to FL... Yeah! Right.  Yeah sure

Or use a US gate at B, C, or D... Yeah! Double-Right!  Yeah sure

To some cities, Southwest giveth. In other cities, Southwest taketh away. Looks like HOU and DAL are the big losers with the latest schedule changes with each losing 10 daily departures.

Between now and Oct. 31, HOU loses2 daily departures to AUS, 2 daily departures to SAT, 3 daily departures to MSY and 3 daily departures to DAL.

DAL is losing 1 daily departure to ABQ, 1 daily departure to LIT, 1 daily departure to MAF, 2 daily departures to OKC, 2 daily departures to TUL and 3 daily departures to HOU.

I've read (but not verified) that LAX-LAS is also losing 1 daily roundtrip.

PHL-LGA service is kind of pointless since it usually takes less time to drive or take the train when you add in being at the airport an hour in advance, time spent in line for departure, etc.

With good scheduling, Southwest could probably squeeze another ten flights or so (with really clever scheduling, twenty more) per day out of their four PHL gates -- there are certain times of the day when they have no flights departing for 45 minutes to an hour or more. Granted, they may be avoiding the US Airways hub banks at those times. From looking at the new schedule, the A.M. originators seem to need about 40 minutes on the gate, and they could push a few more out between 0545 and 0620 or after 0730. They've only got seven flights departing in the 4.5 hours between 1155 and 1630, mid-mornings are quiet, and evenings are quiet between 1845 and 2115.

I guess one big question is whether WN feels it can get access to more gates before the Concourse E expansion is completed (is there a status on this project?) or before all the leases come up for renewal in two years. It's certainly possible that a couple of concourses might become available if US management can't figure out how to run their airline efficiently.

And yeah, sure looks like the Philly Inquirer missed the ball on this one...NOT. How long until US announces GoFares to BDL and JAX? They haven't matched to BDL in the reservations system yet.

LoneStarMike-

I suspect that some of the decreases intra-Texas are due to the retirement of the 737-200's and likely replacement with -300's and -700's. Plus HOU-AUS has got to have seen dramatic decreases in demand with the speed limit at 70, the new AUS being out at Bergstrom, improvements to SH 71 and US 290, more security hassle, etc. Hey, do they still have the "If you hit this, you'll hit bridge" sign on the SH 71 underpass at I-10 in Columbus?

HOU-SAT and DAL-OKC are pretty short flights as well, also affected by higher speed limits and increased security.

At present, the project is still in the preliminary design stages. I anticipate that bid documents for construction will be out by early 2005 with construction starting before next summer. Mind you, this is just a prediction.

Finally finally finally a non-stop from the bay area to PHL on something besides US and US and also not out of SFO.

It would be sheer bliss for me is they made it SJC-PHL since I live about 2 miles from SJC. But, can't have it all.

Anyways, more non-stop options for me and my wife to visit her family in PHL.

Interestingly enough, RT fares between SFO and PHL on UA and US have been hovering around 300. So SWA coming into this route I don't think is going to drop fares too much.

I thought they were going to tear down the building...if not then i would say remodel it and put it to use. Would it be possible to maybe add on to the overseas terminal and possibly use a tram/bus to connect the "overseas" terminal with the main building?

Just as a followup to the whole question about gates at PHL, this same question was raised in the results conference call this afternoon. Gary Kelly basically stated that the 41 flights scheduled are at or close to full utilization of those four gates. It was interesting, though, that he seemed somewhat evasive in giving a response to whether they'd be able to acquire additional gates at PHL aside from saying they wouldn't be able to in Concourse E.

I'd also add that they said that red-eye flying is NOT anticipated in the fall/winter schedule.

Manchester (MHT) gets a 'giveth' and a 'taketh-away.' The 'giveth' is our fifth nonstop to/from PHL. The 'taketh-away' is that we lose our lone nonstop to Kansas City. In my view the MCI nonstop existed as a connecting point for flights to/from further west, like SAN etc. Now that we have one daily LAS nonstop, another Saturday-only LAS nonstop coming soon, and likely PHX service at some point very late this year or early next, our need for that MCI flight has diminished...and will diminish further. It's never nice to lose a flight/route, but it's easy to see that we'll be well compensated for that single loss as we go forward here at MHT.

Other Southwest city-pairs where frequency is being cut back include MDW-IND (losing 1 daily departure), BWI-ORF (losing 2 daily departures), FLL-MCO (losing 2 daily departures) and FLL-TPA (losing 2 daily departures.)

Anyone who starts there day reading the Philadelphia Inquirer is nuts. That newspaper is so left wing and socialist it is sometimes like reading propaganda. They cannot cover a story without a slant to it that distracts the reader from the topic itself. I will never pay for a copy of it in my life.

Back to the topic here, it is interesting that Southwest is growing so fast at PHL. I wasn't paying a lot of attention to other cities that they recently started service to, but these new flights to PHL are really coming on fast.

As the airport continues to clog itself full of airplanes I wonder what will happen. Twenty minute turns like at places at MHT, HOU, etc. can rarely be done at PHL even in the middle of the day when things may not be so busy.

Sorry Scotty, I don't have load factors. I don't work for WN. I only figured out the reduced frequencies by comparing the schedule today with the schedule for Nov. 15.

Does anyone remember that article that came out about the time that Southwest announced it's second wave of flights out of PHL that said in ten years Southwest at PHL would likely have the same number of departures as Southwest has today at BWI? I think BWI currently has (or will soon have) 161 departures. It's taken 11 years for BWI to grow to 161 daily departures. That's about 15 newflights a year.

Yet six months after starting service to PHL, Southwest will be 25% of the way to 161 daily departures. I think PHL will wind up being Southwest's fastest growing city. It's not going to take 9 and a half more years for Southwest to get the gates and ticket counter space it needs to handle 160 daily departures at PHL.

HOU-SAT and DAL-OKC are pretty short flights as well, also affected by higher speed limits and increased security

It is pretty much a wash timewise to drive OKC-DAL since 9-11 extra security. You are also limited with the Wright Amendment as to what destinations you can get to easily through DAL. I suspect OKC-DAL passenger load less than 50% after 9-11.

Okie, The Load factors for OKC-DAL Descent most of the time. I say around 60-70% on weekdays. There are usually a good number of pax who orignate in HOU that flies HOU-DAL-OKC, keep and mind you have those who orignate in DAL and connects in DAL from midland and el paso etc etc. List goes on.

In conjuction with the Hammerhead E project, there will also be a building expansion between the Terminal D & E ticketing areas. This consolidation will be similar to what took place at B-C a few years ago.

I flew DAL-OKC a couple of months ago on a Wednesday. I tried to book flight 183 at 1:00 p.m. the day of the flight, but was told that it was sold out. I was able to book on flight 803 at 4:00 p.m., and that flight left full. There is something else that comes into play in the DAL-OKC flights...OKC is a jumping off point for us "two steppers" trying to get to MCI. On 803, about 40 people got off and walked over to the gate for the MCI flight.

MSY loses 3 HOU flights (bringing the total down to 17 flights every weekday) and 2 to BHM (down to 5 daily flights). I can live with these reductions. What's more interesting to me is the number of flights that are getting RE-TIMED. WN's nonstops from here to LAX,JAX,IND,LAS,PHX,SAN and some flights to DAL,MCO,TPA are all seeing significant time changes. For the better, I may add.

I can't wait for WN to add a second n/s LAS flight. The evening flight can be kind of inconvenient since it gets you to Vegas kind of late. I'm sure a 2nd LAS flight is on the way and if so it will probably be a morning flight which would be great. I am thrilled to have WN here in my hometown... because of them I can take a second vacation this year... WOOHOO!!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Oh God, y'all... I'm crying. USA Today vs. PHL Inquirer... look at the photos... corroborate the date... it's all too much! Can we get a tally on who watches the FOX networks vs. CNN while we're at it?!?

7E7 -- I flew from the old international terminal back in the early/mid 1980s on AIA (American International Airlines)... that short-lived domestic, holiday sun-spot DC-9/MD-80 operator that never gets any recognition... The terminal was cavernous and nearly windowless inside... not really appealing, and laid out so that arriving and departing passengers would all converge on the short curbside at about the same time. It was a hoot...

Come on y'all!!! it will not problems with WN in PHL and they are doing so well out of PHL. I am sure WN will make second daily from PHL-LAS anytime soon and it is already have in evening flight to Vegas flight.
