Which routes have been cut too deeply?

Starting to have difficulty finding availability on the DAL-AUS and DAL-HOU routes.

Hoping Southwest will be nimble enough to add at least another flight or two quickly.

Anyone else having trouble finding availability? Which routes?

OAK-PHX frequently selling out, especially on Monday/Friday. Aircraft full (i.e., 2/3) in both directions last week.

I dunno how far out are you wanting to book travel: 1 day,1 week, 2 weeks, 1 month ?

DAL-SAT/HOU/AUS have all been very full the last few weeks. I hope all get a frequency added soon. Kinda shocked they didn't already in June. But they were empty until just a few weeks ago. Demand has come back very quickly like a light switch.

It's going to be a WN monopoly in short order with AA dropping out, so they'll presumably be adding frequencies

HP/US/AA had 36 years of continuous service at OAK. WN can feast on the leftovers.

A quick look at random Fridays, 1 and often 2x daily N/S going forward from mid-August thru the end of the current schedule are posted.

WN dropped nonstop PHX-PHL service. F9 has already announced PHL-PHX.

Looks like the WN nonstops will return later this year, but F9 will make it interesting with only O&D pax in the PHX/PHL market.

That's because WN has reduced the schedule through mid-August. They have not yet modified the schedule after that so hopefully they don't change it.

DAL-SAT has increased from 3x up to 5x on some dates I have checked in the next week. Very happy to see!

AA was down to a CR9 on the route, so not much competition the past six weeks or so.

My WN flights Friday/Monday were again full both directions. WN did not enforce face covering rule at PHX at all.
