JayDavis, is this your dream or are you getting some hot inside information? This issue has been discussed at length in other posts, but I never get tired of it.
Another discussion on this board talks about the lack of service from JFK to domestic markets such as DFW, ORD, DEN, etc. There are only two flights daily from DFW-JFK, both on AA. I think JetBlue could make AA sweat a little, but most DFW business travelers will still take AA to LGA.

Airtran is moving to B as Travtl said. That is to help with confusion between American Trans Air and Airtran. America West gets the others as they have hired new ground and ticket personel, because CO had been providing them in the past. I do know this for a fact. I havn't heard about Jet Blue, yet I'm not saying that they won't begin service.

America West sure could use a couple of their own gates at DFW rather than sharing CO's.
I fly DFW-PHX-ONT ONT-PHX-DFW every week as I recently took a contract position in Southern California. Nobody in Dallas is hiring! :-(
Anyway, those flights are having phenominal load factors as far as I can tell. 100% full every time.
They need their own gates..When I connect through PHX, they always point out my ticket says "Continental" and do a 2nd look.
I had never flown HP until I took this job.. I'll tell ya what, this airline is not as bad as people make it out to be! Always on time, walk up fares are around 440.00, which blows away any AA or DL fare to the same airport. Airplanes have been spotless and the seat pitch is generous.
I'll admit, my expectations were set pretty low because of all the comments I've read on this forum.. but with reward tickets at 20k miles and the quality of service I've experienced, why would I fly another carrier?

Where did you her Frontier Gave up some of its 318's. I doubt JetBlue would buy a 318 over a 320 (Like All Other Planes They Own) to such a big market. Frontier does have a gate Problem but they did not cancle orders.

Yes, I was pulling your leg about Frontier giving up their A-318's. What I didn't realize until this weekend though was that Frontier can only park their new A-318's on the north side of Terminal A in Denver. They think the tail is too high to fit under the bridge that goes from the main terminal to terminal A.

Milemaster, what do you mean that your ticket says Continental on it when you fly HP out of DFW?
Because the tickets are printed on Continental's paper stock instead of America West's. Curbside check-in as well as at the ticket counter are currently fully staffed/run by Continental. They even pointed out "Here is your Onepass number" on my ticket where it was actually my America West Flight Fund Number.
