Anytime we expand Hawaii flights is always welcoming news. Hawaii flights will more than likely take off soon and SWA will take full advantage of it.
I know some follow this thread with friends and relatives in Hawaii so now SWA is bringing even more options with more coming in the future...

Per this article we are now reaching 80% LF's with 55% seats already sold for June and well over 2/3 of seats sold for July. It would make sense for the July month to start picking up even faster than the June month sales.
At this current rate we will be doing pretty well by end of summer, then comes the typical fall fare sales to keep'em flying thru to the holidays...

Sweeeet!!
Not sure why we bumped the 200 orders to 234 in total but luv it anyways. They did say they had room to expand further and now they proved it, fantastic...




Airplanes are getting fuller and fuller. Did not expect these kinds of LF so early on this year. Great news to hear. I pulled a para out to highlight the LF's and how passenger load levels compared to 2019:


"Nealon said Southwest's overall load factors and leisure fares are back to 2019 levels."

Now that's impressive, wasn't expecting these numbers until middle summer travel and here we are at the very beginning. 2022 will probably get even better as more and more folks get vaccinated and get the inch to "wanna get away" after being grounded for so long...

Happy travels folks...

This is really good news for Southwest International and other flights mentioned. International flights will all be restored by Nov 2021. Didn't expect to see that announcement until into 2022. The post pandemic is recovering much, much better than predicted. A welcoming change within our industry to say the least.

Holy Crap!! 50% off for 50 days? We will be very, very busy for the rest of this year for sure.
Folks, this is a true 50% off. I know of flights sold from Mo. to Fla for $65 and the same for return flights. $130 for round trip Mo.-Fl is way cheap. Get'em while they last folks. I expect people flooding to SWA.

It will in fact turn "Wanna Get Away" into "Gonna Get Away"
