I wonder if IND will get any LUV from Southwest Thursday

If WN wants anything new during Spring Break, now is the time. Still waiting for IND-BNA.
Possibly IND-BNA and reinstating IND-SAN earlier or daily on IND-AUS, but I think they are just about tapped out from IND. I just don't think they are realistically going to add anything big from IND anytime soon.
Cutting NYC service isn't going to do them well in the long-run, and if they end up cutting IND-BOS that could be even more trouble at IND.
I just don't see where they are realistically going to add......that would be profitable.... (please do not respond jplatts)
Southwest could add IND-MKE. The service would connect the two cities and give travelers more options. From MKE they would have more options to ATL, BWI, BOS, CLE, DAL, DEN, HOU, LAS, LAX, BNA, LGA, MCO, PHX, STL, TPA, DCA, and seasonal service to FLL, RSW, SFO, and SEA.
Right now Southwest does not fly nonstop from IND to LGA or DCA, and no one flies IND-CLE after UA and DL dropped the route, so this would provide other opportunities for Southwest to provide service to passengers in these markets.
After take off from IND, the MKE-bound WN flight could make a low pass over the Steak 'n Shake in Brownsburg to remind passengers WN offers IND passengers service to ATL, AUS, BOS, BWI, DAL, DEN, EWR, FLL, HOU, LAS, LAX, MDW, MSY, OAK, PHX, RSW, TPA, and seasonal service to CUN and SAN. They might tweet to @SouthwestAir during their meal requesting Southwest add nonstops to BDL, ORF, PDX, or SAT. After booking a flight to BOS, they may tweet requesting service to not just BDL, but also MHT or PVD since they may fly over those airports on their approach to BOS, and after landing in BOS, may hear a boarding call for CMH, so they may request nonstop service there, too. Southwest could add CMH and BNA during a schedule extension in 2019, along with MEM and RNO. A flight to RNO may provide extra opportunities for passengers to connect to PDX and SJC. Southwest could eventually add nonstop service to these cities if there is enough demand since they currently do not offer nonstops from IND. Right now you can conect to these cities on Southwest via MDW, DEN, HOU, LAS, LAX, and PHX. They could always consider PNS. Right now Southwest does not offer nonstop service from IND to PNS. PNS is very popular for travelers from Indianapolis but most people tend to drive. Right now you can fly there from Southwest on IND via DAL, MDW, and HOU after eating your meal at Steak 'n Shake.
