WN Going Daily On MSY-SAT/MKE

Fri Aug 29, 2014 7:58 pm

MSY-SAT was recently announced as a Saturday only service starting in March. Today it was announced that it's going to be daily starting in April. The daily MKE is likely a seasonal ramp up of service if I had to guess, but you never know with WN...perhaps they'll give it a go again year-round.

I hope it's profitable enough for WN to keep it year round. I'm waiting for WN to add some more service from MKE but they haven't added much lately except for the winter adds to FL etc.

I agree. I'm really surprised WN hasn't offered this route for years already as it seems like a "logical" route for them to serve.

Finally got around to diffing up a little info on this nonstop city pair.

Never served nonstop prior to fall of 2010.

Onboard passengers MKE-MSY

101.4 April

90.2 November
83.3 December
84.5 January
98.4 February

---Southwest 737 replaces AirTran 717 unless noted--

Winter 2012/Spring 2013
71.7 January
85.8 February
114.6 March
96.5 April
86.0 May

Summer/Fall 2013 (first year-round service)
92.5 June
108.4 July
84.1 August
65.5 September
99.5 October

Winter 2013/Spring 2014

92.5 December (FL 717)
98.8 January
108.6 February
120.5 March
109.9 April
110.5 May

So MSY-MKE never operated before 2010 and this past summer/fall (2013) was the first and only time it ran through summer and fall. So far in 2014 the market seems to be filling seats reasonably well through May.

Thanks for checking the numbers. Those are definitely higher numbers on a larger plane without as much feed possibly at MKE due to the FL de-hubbing.
