$99 One way TIA-San Diego Flights Began!

Southwest to begin $99 one way flights between Tampa and San Diego!

TPA lands nonstop daily Southwest service to San Diego
(June 22, 2017) San Diego, here we come! Today, Tampa International Airport’s largest carrier, Southwest Airlines, announced it will launch daily nonstop flights to San Diego beginning Jan. 8, 2018.
The new service is a major win for the Airport and the Tampa Bay region, especially for the business community. TPA research shows that traffic between the two markets is heavily driven by business passengers, with strong links between our defense, aerospace and medical industries.
“This service is going to be a game-changer for us,” TPA CEO Joe Lopano said. “Southwest is very committed to this market and this new flight to San Diego furthers that commitment even more.”
This will be Southwest’s 38th nonstop destination from Tampa International and its first on the West Coast. Mondays through Fridays, the flight will depart TPA at 9:40 a.m. and arrive in San Diego at 11:55 a.m., then depart San Diego at 12:45 p.m., arriving at TPA at 8 p.m. On Saturdays and Sundays, the flight will depart San Diego at 9:05 a.m. to arrive at TPA at 4:30 p.m., then depart TPA at 4:50 p.m. and arrive in San Diego at 7 p.m.
San Diego was one of three domestic targets presented to the Hillsborough County Aviation Authority Board in November 2016 as part of TPA’s five-year Air Service Development strategy. In less than eight months, TPA has secured service to two of the three on that list – San Diego and Salt Lake City – with service to Salt Lake beginning Dec. 18. Portland is the remaining domestic target market.
“This really is keeping Tampa on the grid, so to speak,” Lopano said. “It’s really important for us to be connected to these West Coast destinations as we grow.”
Internationally, TPA is targeting Mexico City, Lima, Bogota, Amsterdam, Manchester and Dublin.
The San Diego announcement comes as the Airport is experiencing record passenger numbers, including the busiest March and April on record with nearly 3.8 million passengers passing through our gates. Book your West Coast getaway to San Diego today at

Should you try DIY orthodontics?

Should you try DIY orthodontics?


“We’ve talked about crazy trends many times on the show, but this next one may just take the cake,” says ER Physician Dr. Travis Stork. “This does not seem like a good idea!”

Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Kourosh Maddahi says it’s a terrible idea. “Teeth are not hard to move at all,” he notes – in fact, you can move your teeth over time just by pushing them with your tongue. This is why braces are effective, but it also means that if you move your teeth without knowing what you’re doing you can cause big problems

Teeth moved of out alignment throw off your bite, explains Dr. Maddahi. “You’re going to have gum recession or bone loss. Teeth become loose, and over time you can lose those teeth.”

Professional orthodontic appliances are designed to never go below the gums, because otherwise the gums could become inflamed and start overgrowing. But rubber bands easily slip under the gum and can cause enormous damage.

Dr. Stork notes that there are new options for moving misaligned teeth – you don’t have to choose traditional braces. “Please, in this case, do NOT do it yourself! Seek a professional’s help,” he pleads.
