Is the jetway still there, at gate 2? Maybe that has to be replaced.
WN has been using 2-3 gates in T1W for a few months now so maybe they've closed gate 2 (temporarily?) for some rehab work -- maybe the jetway? -- or something else. Also this summer has seen a cut in WN flights due to the MAX grounding so perhaps they ended up with an extended period to do required or desired work.
Perhaps someone in the know will chime in if none of what I said is correct.
Using flightaware and its listing of the gates of departures, these are Southwest's departures for Monday morning, July 8, 2019:
0631 WN 1370 ABQ Gate 4
0633 WN 2392 MDW Gate 8
0644 WN 1323 MCI Gate 9
0645 WN 469 SMF Gate 11
0651 WN 806 LAS Gate 7
0653 WN 1402 SFO Gate 22
0659 WN 2232 PHX Gate 1
0701 WN 1847 AUS Gate 6
0702 WN 379 SJC Gate 3
0704 WN 1330 OAK Gate 1A
0716 WN 3781 DAL Gate 5
0724 WN 3936 OAK Gate 4 Our First Re-used gate
I scanned a few Southwest departures after this repeat, but not a single use of Gate 2 appears.
I would be shocked if this were permanent, but anything is possible.
