WN's DAL To STL & MCI - Nothing Is New

Sat Dec 03, 2005 9:27 pm

I was looking at the Dallas Love Field to Kansas City & St Louis schedules and all of a sudden I realized that this was deja vu all over again.

DAL-MCI 0850, 1245, 1845, 2045
MCI-DAL 0645, 1040, 1440, 1840

DAL-STL 0810, 1230, 1645, 2100
STL-DAL 0600, 1015, 1425, 1845

Do you have ANY idea of how many new markets that WN hasa opened up with 4 frequencies a day, spaced basically 4 hrs apart?

1975 - HOU-SAT 735, 1135, 1535, 1935
SAT-HOU 0830, 1230, 1630, 2030
*(now, this was not the initial pattern in this market, but it was what WN adopted when they decided they would keep it as a market)

1975 - HOU-HRL 0830, 1230, 1630, 2030
HRL-HOU 0625, 0930, 1330, 1730

1977 - DAL-LBB 0625, 1030, 1430, 1830
LBB-DAL 0730, 1130, 1530, 1930

1977 - DAL-MAF 0830, 1230, 1630, 2030
MAF-DAL 0645, 0945, 1345, 1745

1978 HOUSTON to AUSTIN 0735, 1135, 1535, 1935 & AUSTIN back to HOUSTON 0830, 1230, 1630, 2030

1977 CRP, 1979 MSY, 1980 OKC & TUL, AND 1982 ABQ & ELP TO PHX AND PHX TO LAS WERE ALL DONE WITH 4 INITIAL FREQUENCIES AT 4 HR INTERVALS BUT I CAN'T RECALL THE EXACT TIME SCHEDULE.

Bottom Line: In an era of change and turmoil it is nice to look at a company who continues to do the same thing over and over again with a modicum of success.
