Sad to see that happening. I wonder if WN will ever start selling their flights on Expedia and such. Many people in Central America book their flights through travel agencies and websites that are not specific to an airline.

Re: Southwest Schedule Extension 02/15/18

According to SWA’s website, WN is at around 122 daily flights as of January 18th from TPA. That is unreal, since I always thought WN was at around 80ish departures on average from TPA.

Excited to hear about the LAX addition.
