I'm a weekly traveler from austin to chicago and back and have enjoyed the early morning direct flight from AUS to MDW for a few years and then suddenly January 1 2018 with no notice, it's gone! I thought it might be temporary or seasonal but here it is almost April and it looks like it's not coming back. That flight was full 9 times out of 10 and so I don't understand what happened to it. Perfect commuter flight for those of us who live in Austin and work in Chicago. What happened and what can be done? Is there a way to submit a "give us back our flight!" request with enough interested travelers? Ive had to switch my work schedule and meetings significantly and am flying mostly American and United to chicago now and it SUCKS. I'm A-list Preferred and have a Companion Pass, but this may be the last year for that if I have to abandon loyalty to Southwest. Signed, Crammed into 18F on a crappy AA flight.
