Southwest 1414


#1

Just for fun, track this one. Chicago to Oakland via most of the east coast and Texas.


#2

Not too unusual for SWA. Take a look at SWA829 (routing: MCO-IND-MDW-LAX-OAK-PDX) and SWA640 (routing: RDU-BWI-DTW-MDW-BNA).


#3

Southwest’s dispatchers are pretty aggressive about planning for best winds and pilots are good at sticking to the plan…I hear them refuse “direct” quite often.
