Southwest Cutting Flights

Southwest Airlines announced yesterday that they are trimming 190 flights from its schedule starting in January 2009. While there do not appear to be many changes in service between cities, it appears that there will be reductions in frequency between cities with existing service. Some of the changes are seasonal, with the period immediately following the holidays typically representing a slower travel season. Southwest mentioned that they may add capacity again later in 2009 if things pick up.

PDX is losing three flights: one each to Chicago-Midway, Las Vegas, and Spokane. This will leave only one flight a day to MDW, although there will still remain several to LAS and GEG.
