Non-stop from EWR to MCO???

dmdj232

Why has Southwest discontinued Non-Stop Flights from EWR to MCO?  In fact, there are no Non-Stop flights from the tri-state area to MCO.  There are so many families traveling with kids and to have to do a transfer to go to an airport that has so many families traveling to Disney makes it very difficult.

Changing flight schedules is a common topic here, and I understand your frustration! One of my most frequent business travel routes used to be non-stop, and now it isn't! Unfortunately, there are so many factors that impact an airline's schedule: demand, needs in other cities, staffing, profitability, strategy, etc. 

 

You might consider other airports in the area to travel from, and you can also provide your feedback directly to SW via their Contact Us page. 

 

Good luck in that route going direct one day!

Does LGA work for you? There's a non-stop to MCO on Saturdays. You can didn't say when you were looking to travel and I only looked at January so the schedule may be different later in the year.

We are looking to travel in mid August.  Our dates have not been released yet, but I'm going off of what is available now leading up to our dates.  We have our rooms booked already and can not change the check-in or check-out dates without a penalty.  We would need a departure on a Thursday and Return on a Friday

August may be a good time for additional EWR-MCO service, so you may be in luck when the schedule is released. 

 

If not, an ample connection time or a one-stop-no-plane-change may also work for you (not sure if any of those showed up currently). The best comparison would be to last August rather than upcoming January/February timing - Southwest knows when kids are on break for heading to Florida.

 

Let us know what turns up!
