On the flip side, BNA serves PNS, ECP, CLT, and CHS. WN also has nonstop service to SEA from BNA, but not from ATL. These lists demonstrate, I think, that the connections on BNA-ATL are or will be more about additional options in existing markets than about new markets, although BNA-PBI isn't easy ...
