Got a friend who said today that WN announced PVD-SJU nonstop? Any info or start date?

WN is not starting N/S service between PVD and SJU.

It is one stop through (no change) PVD SJU service via Orlando on 737-800, not nonstop, commencing when the above new flights do.

Ah yeah I just got the clarification, it is through MCO on the -800. Thought it was nonstop, but that's no big deal. It's just a connecting flight basically, it's not big news like I thought.

Sorry for the hype!

No, it's a direct flight. Not nonstop, and not connecting.

That the carrier bothered to upguage the equipment and make it a through flight back and forth is not a bad thing. Might be a market test for the future. I could see SAT/SUN n/s in time to come. WN is into so many things at this transitional time that it is impossible to get the pulse in every instance.

Probably not. WN realizes that when there's no nonstop, a one stop can be just about as good as - or sometimes even better than - a nonstop.
