Southwest nonstops out of DTW or FNT?

I noticed SW only has one nonstop a day out of Detroit, and non out of Flint. Do u think that is a sign they will be dropping them altogether like AirTran did?

I thought SW dropped their non-stops to MCO from Detroit awhile ago. I picked some random dates, didn't see any.

I don't think so, AT only had one non-stop from FNT for years before they dropped it and then it was only dropped for less than a year before SW picked up the routes and put the non-stop back in.

Wow!! I'm glad to see that SWA is flying non stop from DTW to MCO again! I hope they add more non stop flights.

I stopped flying SWA when they discontinued the non stop flights. I am flying SWA for the first time in years tomorrow. Going to Disneyland in CA. So excited!!

I'm not seeing where they have any true non-stops offered from DTW-MCO.
They have a few one-stops with no plane change, but nothing non-stop.
Are you referring to flights for a different destination?

I just checked August 1 to 9, I don't see any non-stops on SW. Do you mean Air Tran has non-stops?

Sorry!! It was out of Flint...which I love...BUT...they only have
Like two flights per day,one being a nonstop. That really makes me wonder if they are leaving Flint? There are many out of Detroit, but no nonstops

Flint was on the list of cities converting to Southwest, so they are not leaving Flint:

Southwest has pulled away from non-stops to Orlando out of other airlines hubs - Detroit (Delta), Cleveland (Continental/United), Washington Dulles (United), they have cut back in Philadelphia (USAir).

Right now AT only does nonstop once a day out of GR as well. Im really hoping that continues when SW takes over for AT. To me, its worth any extra cost for nonstop.
