God bless them for they know not what they are up against! Stand in line for a boarding pass at the counter, then stand in line with that boarding pass to get a seat on the plane, then, only to most likely find they might be faced with a CAT II or CAT III approach with the a HUD hand flown approach.......not me! Nice airport, great prices for a few seat/flight. Have fun RSW, lets see, what color a a 737 you might find at your gate! Sorry, just don't find SWA to be like the were long ago before they the Morris Air and TranStar times!

Was that stat factoring in WN? WN seems to make cities grow exponentially.

Just curious, but why do you find this to be a problem?

(Not that RSW has a CAT-II or CAT-III approach anyway...)

yeah check-in online and still get your group A/B/C seat.

Good call on the lemons though, just want an assigned seat, upgrades if you qualify and automation on the flight deck!  Smile

So let me get this straight. You are using WN's lack of autoland capability as a point against the airline?

Not at all, nothing against any operator, just an observation...but the fleet is capable with the NG's at a minimum, why not use it, they paid for it. Guess it's just a philosophy.

yea, I just pulled those number out of thin air. I don't know how great the southwest effect will happen at RSW. The airport is already loaded with low fare carriers. Probably get a spike then level off.
