Did I Miss Something? OKC-MCO N/s Is On WN's Map!

Sat Jan 12, 2013 3:37 am

I was looking at WN's route map, and noticed that WN now has OKC-MCO on their n/s section. Is this Sat only, like what we had back in 2003? Or is this finally something more permanent?

Daily seasonal Feb 15 - Apr 14.
Lighten up while you still can, don't even try to understand, just find a place to make your stand and take it easy

It was mentioned on here in quick passing in one of the threads. If you want, I would bookmark this link since most of all the local changes are posted there: http://www.okctalk.com/transportatio...al-aviation-discussion-2013-a.html

You'd have thought, though, that this would've been mentioned in a prior press release...even if it is seasonal.

Here's hoping it sticks...we need another southeast connection opportunity since they won't give us a competing ATL route.

The ATL integration hasn't even started for WN.

Migration of flights, yes, but no codeshare (yet) or ATL links to cities that had WN but not FL.

Bill did a blog post about it, but not sure if the company did a full on press release for the seasonal services. I'm hoping this sticks around, but Florida from OKC has always stunk. However, WN keeps growing here (MCO is the 10th nonstop city now)...so we'll see what happens.

I'm not sure if we'll see ATL here or not. It would be nice to get some eastern connections. I would have thought we would have had BNA by now, but maybe ATL has a better shot.

I'd take an OKC-BNA n/s if we don't get OKC-ATL...

Never say never. Once we are completly absorbed into the mother company (WN) I wouldn't be surprised to see routes/service like this coming back with more frequency and even year round. I could see a WN flight:
  • OKC-BNA-MCO
  • OKC-MCO
  • OKC-MCO-TPA
  • OKC-ATL-FLL
  • OKC-TPA SEASONAL
  • OKC-FLL SEASONAL


With the contraction of SJU as a hub for AA I wouldn't be surprised to eventually have us WN gradually increasing frequency and destinations to SJU especially after we are just an In Our Hearts Forever memory Fully absorbed into WN.
