This blocks out WN from serving CUN via Dallas. Would be nice if they applied for IAH-CUN as well.

Doesn't block WN from DAL. After Wright is lifted, flights can only fly to domestic destinations, so WN still wouldn't be able to fly DAL-CUN n/s.

HOU/IAH-CUN, on the other hand, has the potential to be a blocking move, depending on how many other carrier already fly that route.

Also, in doing further research, I came across this:

Looks like DFW-BWI and DFW-HOU/IAH (airport unknown at this point)start in September, and DFW-OAK/LAX start in April.

Interesting...

Wow Spirit's really going gangbusters at DFDub'. Wonder if the experiment will work.

I consider it a draw after BOSDFW fizzing out. The question is will SY fight it out as NK seems to be more likely to cut and run.

SY DFW-CUN service is primarily for tour operators (such as Apple), so I don't think there will be much overlap with NK unless some of the operators bail and decide to buy seats on NK instead.

SY has always been tour runs out of DFW, mostly the summer added flights.

Having flown SY DFW-CUN, I'd fly them again, anytime. Excellent service. Certainly a superior product to that offered by Spirit.

Welcome the competition, though!

This route is still open for booking though; at least for August. Didn't check beyond that.

Looks like it is bookable (per their website) through December 7th.
On September 5th, the flight times for DFW-BOS change to 8:05a departure and 12:35p arrival
