I would love to see WN add more int'l flights to MDW, maybe to NAS and AUA. That would bring int'l service closer to what TZ used to have 15 years ago!
On a side note, I recently realized that WN service to EWR has been stuck at about 18 daily departures for quite a long time. Why is that? Even with only 3 gates they could surely add 1 or 2 additional departures per gate per day and there is demand for WN at that airport, maybe not from the NJ side, but from passengers flying into NJ from somewhere else and for whom LGA and ISP and PHL are poor options.
I went through MDW a couple weeks ago and all I saw at Concourse C was a DL 752 parked (NBA charter; I forget which team). As for EWR, the gate restrictions and DL/B6 dominating the NYC metro area doesn't help WN much.
