Just a suggestion, but have you checked the SWA schedules lately?Originally Posted by psukhu
SWA has tweaked many of it's schedules to take advantage of the one-stop to-from Love Field now allowed, and continues to refine then.
If a SWA itinerary shows one flight number then it is the same plane for the whole flight, IE no getting off and back on.
I don't know what cities you fly between, but for example when I compared the flight duration time for LAX/DFW on AA with LAX/DAL on SWA for mid January 08, several of the SWA flights were at 3hr 50 min, vs 3hr 5min for AA. SWA cost less in in each case, and depending on your airport to home travel times, the total travel time may not be that different.
