LAX-DEN was never scheduled to go beyond August anyways. I'm surprised they're letting it even run out that long.
Now lets see about that LAN-IAD route....haha. Actually looking ahead to Friday the LAN-IAD runs are booked to 7, 13, 9, and 12, out of 44 seats. Considering on a month's notice of the route being started, on a non-hub route thats somewhat better that what I would've thought. Oh well.

Im sorry MAH, your are incorrect as I was looking for flights for my parents from LAX to DEN in both September and October sometime during the last week in May and the flights were pulled from the system already. So those flights were gone before F9 announced.
THANK YOU FOR FLYING NORTHWEST AIRLINES, WE TRULY APPRECIATE YOUR BUSINESS!

Then I am incorrect in the date it was extended. It was originally in CRS system until 31 August 2004. Sometime in late May/June, it was extended year-round. It was definitley in reservation systems and bookable into 2005 after Frontier announced the MSP-LAX suspension. Many people mentioned it in the F9 threads, and were asking when it would be pulled out of res systems.

Mah is correct.
LAX/DEN was not iniitally loaded in the NWA computer beyond the end of August. However, this was changed, back in late May or early June.
I have the actual date it was loaded somewhere, if anyone wants me to look, because I made a post about it on the Yahoo Frontier stock board (FRNT).
The route was pulled by NWAC almost immediately that Frontier pulled LAX/MSP - within hours. The two decisions were announced in the Rocky Mountain news at the same time, before the rest of the press knew about it.

I doubt F9 will jump back into the LAX-MSP maket any time soon. NW does a good job protecting their territory, and it would be foolish for F9 to get into another fare war, because neither of them really win. There was an extended period of time where you could get a round trip fare from LAX-MSP for 120 something. I don't think you can make a profit off fares like that.
