RENO, Nev. (KRNV & -- You will soon have fewer options when it comes to getting to and from the bay area.

Southwest Airlines has announced it is cutting service from the Reno-Tahoe Airport to Oakland International. That's two daily non-stop flights that will go away starting in June of next year.

Those flights were often only half full and Southwest says, with higher fuel prices, they are forced to reassess their flight schedule and make changes to stay profitable.

The changes will take effect June 2.

Heidi Jared with the Reno-Tahoe Airport says they have already contacted other airlines in hopes of filling the void which will be left by Southwest on those Oakland flights.

Neither Heidi nor Jared asked SWA to keep one flight, presumably full instead of 2 half-empty. Or re-route to a "local" thru SMF or SJC? Plus, no attempt to link Burning Man or Burning BBQ promos so we Raider ranters can get to OAKtown quicker.
