Welcome to the forum!
I did see it, and neither are a surprise. SAT is likely canabalizing the AUS route. AUS is only an hour drive, and has higher yielding passengers.
The A319, or even bigger, is too much aircraft for MCI without any feeding traffic on either end.
The one to keep an eye on is SAN to see if it grows or shrinks.
Thanks ... I really appreciate everyone's insight here! Yeah, I'm not very surprised, either. I was more hopeful for SAT. I didn't think MCI would work with WN on it, too. F9 seems to have a quick hook on their routes — interested to see how some of these other random flights fare (MHT, SYR, etc) and if they continue to add.
SAN is definitely one to keep an eye on.
