WN runs BNA - OKC on Sunday only and I don’t believe it’s seasonal. It’s probably more of a testing of the market and aircraft availability and routing. They’re also adding OMA on Sundays as well.

Quick question with yields on a certain flight. MKE - BNA is the cheapest ticket out of MKE on WN. You can find tickets as low as 62$ pretty regularly. However the only non-stops are 5:30amCST and 6:30pmCST. I know WN runs a-lot of connections from MKE to BNA but what are the yields like? With it being one of, if not the cheapest ticket out of MKE we are hoping to get to Nashville this year for a quick weekend. Just curious with tickets that cheap if its a sign this route might not be around much longer and WN will just connect everything through BWI, DEN and DAL.

Thanks!

It has always been insanely cheap, even before the nonstops started. They need it to some extent for network reasons but I think the fares are a function of most passengers’ preference for the Chicago airports, not anything intrinsic to Nashville.

We’ve been running it pretty much daily on the holiday schedule. It goes back to Sundays only soon.

DL sells flights BNA-MKE really cheap too....regularly <$200 RT (through ATL mostly, of course)....as a DM on DL, I’ve noticed it along with BOS is almost always the cheapest destination from BNA

I was not aware it was that cheap on DL. I would just rather avoid the connection and fly WN. I really wish DL MKE-MSP was cheaper.... Tickets for 2 people can run 800$!
