The range on the standard 319 is not enough to bring it non-stop. If they did install Bladder tanks on the inside they would have to be removed and then returned to TLS. I have yet to see a F9 319/318 at MCO. But as of late I have not been able to get to the airport that much.

On thing about Frontier and there new planes, the first revenue flight is actually flown from say PHX to DIA, as then the plane is a used palne and not new thus saving them dollars in taxes. I read this in an airline magazine and it was something I never thought of myself.
