Anyone know if they are just testing the routes of Orlando, Las Vegas and Phoenix to Houston intercontinental to see if they work ?

Virtually all new routes by any airline are "tested" to see if they "work".

Looking at the new MDW-RIC flight times they seem like such a waste of aircraft time.
The out bound flights originates daily from RIC at 13:00. The In bound flight RON for the night at 15:20.
Seeing that WN is chasing leisure traffic and trying to drum up demand, Why wouldn't you send that aircraft to RON overnight in the usually added RIC-MCO service.

Per company memo -

MIA Terminal Move
Southwest will be moving operations from Concourse H gates to Concourse G gates in Miami (MIA). Southwest will be terminating flights at G gates starting on March 10 and will begin full operations at G gates beginning March 11.

This makes sense. With flights continuing to increase H was a little tight to begin with. Their check in desks are between G and H anyway. I think United also moved back over to G so H/J will now be the SkyTeam plus Frontier gates.

Buzz going around that WN might add what they're going to call Extra Small markets.
Places like AVL,SWF,ABE,MYR,DAB and MEL.
Using a hybrid weekend fluctuating market schedule along the lines of what Allegiant fly's.
One example used was AVL.
Tuesday,Thursday and Saturday fly BNA,DEN,TPA and Monday,Wednesday,Friday and Sunday fly BWI,MDW,MCO.

With the revenue fallout from this pandemic it's probably time for WN to try some less than daily Hybrid cities.

Thoughts?

Curious if we’ll see a quick build up or stick with the initial five routes through the summer?

MYR during summer at least makes sense. I figured that would be on the short list from the start.

Hate to nitpick, but did you mean MLB instead of MEL? ;)

Anyhow, all of the markets that you listed would make great WN stations. Surprised they're not already in MYR...

I would be all about WN starting DAB. If they ever would start CMH-DAB (which isn't the craziest thing in the world given they fly to ~20 cities from there), DL and AA might lose some of my business.

Colorado in general, as expected, seems to have a strong base for WN. Would be interested to see if they expand into EGE next winter and maybe even add something like FNL, just like COS but on the Northern side of the Denver metro. UA just added “wingless flights” and I could definitely see WN jumping on the actual flights if things go well

Would love to see an extra small market approach. Might be my only hope to see them at CID. Allegiant is successful at it and WN could offer seamless connections to many places. I could see them maybe alternating MDW/STL/DEN On certain days. It would be interesting for sure. Another way to expand their system.

I would be more concerned about VPS eating into ECP more than PNS. PNS metro over 400k and PNS also draws from Gulf Shores/Baldwin county Alabama and also Mobile and the drive from PNS to Destin on 98 is busy to say the least. ECP population to the east is fairly sparse until you get to Tallahassee which is over 100 miles or a couple hours away.

Next Thursday would be a good time to announce given they are inaugurating other new cities on the same day.

MYR & AVL make sense, as demand wouldn't be an issue at either.

I don't see SWF, given how WN struggles with Northeast point-of-sale.

IIRC, former FL markets which WN withdrew from were:
ABE, ACY, AVL, FNT, MDT, PHF, HSV, UTM, BDA, EYW, MLI, BMI, LEX, DAY, CRW, HPN, TYS

Of those, AVL seems the most likely. Maybe TYS or EYW.

WN seems to be focusing on leisure-centric destinations, which means they could expand further out west in Montana, Idaho, Oregon, and California.

And we all know everyone here is waiting for ANC to be announced, if it ever will be.

Can only speak for MDT and ABE, but MCO was daily to start and ended up being 2x daily for a while, once the announcement of the merger then it slowly dropped off to 1x daily. On the fall of the last full year there were a few weeks it wasn’t daily.

Southwest Airlines intends to fly to Bellingham, Eugene, and Myrtle Beach. Routes and other details will be announced later.

MYR expected to launch in time for summer vacations, BLI/EUG in the second half of 2021.

Is WN not looking back on how they left EWR high and dry and ever since their competitors have expanded greatly? WN would be extremely profitable on EWR-FLL/DEN/ATL/BNA/MDW/PHX/
HOU/MCO if they just gave it another chance. They have the planes now, so what is there to lose?

News out. Intent to add MYR, EUG, and BLI

https://www.prnewswire.com/news-release ... 42087.html

No info on start dates or initial routes/frequency, though the PR says the MYR launch is hoped to be in time for summer and EUG and BLI targeted for the second half of the year.

DALLAS, March 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE: LUV) today announced an intention to bring the flexibility and value of Southwest Airlines® to three new airports in 2021. Southwest Airlines Chairman and CEO Gary Kelly today is sharing the following message with the Employees of Southwest:

I'm pleased to share with you all that today we're announcing our intention to serve three more destinations and continue our focus on putting our aircraft to work to pursue more Customers and much-needed revenue.

And the destinations are (drum roll!) Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Eugene, Oregon; and Bellingham, Washington—three very different and appealing locations to both serve our existing Customers and places where we feel Southwest can make a real difference for local travelers.

We're looking to start Myrtle Beach service in time for summer vacations and we expect our arrival to appeal to travelers who currently drive to this very popular coastal area in the Southeast. 'Golf bags fly free'* should be very popular for Myrtle Beach service!

Eugene is about two hours south of Portland, and it's ripe for the Southwest Effect, our Hospitality, and our flexible policies, with no hidden fees, and low fares.

Southwest service in Bellingham positions us just south of metro Vancouver, British Colombia. Following the reopening of the Canadian border, we expect a return of the value-minded travelers who already drive to this alternative airport to escape high fares and taxes—and that's very, very typical for Southwest destinations. Southwest provides a great value for them.

Service to both Eugene and Bellingham is something we've anticipated in the second half of the year.

When Canadians can travel freely again - meaning crossing the U.S. border by all typical means, and not need to quarantine when they go home - BLI-DEN/PHX/SAN ought to be popular. Maybe they can work the web pages to accept provinces and post codes before they launch!

They've been - mostly - running hard in the opposite direction for the past 15 years. DEN, PHL, IAD, BOS, SFO, LGA, ATL, IAH, ORD.... Paying $$$ to make the 717s go away. Persistently upgauging with every new aircraft delivery since the first 738 in 2012. If WN has so many spare aircraft they need to pull an Allegiant and run a market like CID 3x weekly, they've got issues.

A lot of Buzz was going around this weekend that WN was going to add "Extra Small cities". I honestly don't think EUG and MYR fall into that category but BLI definitely might.

EUG and BLI definitely would make great choices for the Rumored upcoming Saturday only service to HNL.

I was just thinking yesterday that WN in EUG would be a good add. Bellingham is a surprise but they've had interest in northern Washington before and I'm glad it came to fruition. MYR is a natural add and will solidify some of the southeast vacation traffic
