  1. What is not mentioned here is that this new international service from MCO is replacing FLL service. Effective June 4th, Southwest drops all of the nonstop international destinations from FLL except for Montego Bay. They are showing they can’t compete in the FLL market with Spirit and JetBlue (and AA via MIA). Havana is also dropped and not moved to MCO… it will only be reached via TPA.
