I found schedules for DAY and FAT entered into Frontier's res system. Someone must have made a mistake because these flights have not been announced. Service is twice daily on CRJ700's. You can not see these flights on the first page of the website. You need to do a search for flight in Oct, then the city selections will move to the bottom left corner of the screen. Now you can change the cities and you will see DAY and FAT. I would add direct links but they are massive. Anyone have an idea when these will be announced? Great news for both cities. F9 seems to be following FL's lead in the Ohio markets.

Good news, finally they may be saying yes.
FAT had a SCASD grant for $1 million that was offered to F9 for the last couple of years. This year they filed for a new grant for less money that would go to CoEx. If they got this year's grant they would return the F9 grant money to the Feds. Maybe that got Frontier to speed up their process.

I did a search of other express flights, and no cities are dropped. I found an article in Regional Aviation News that says Horizon will receive two CRJ's per year with eight on order, it doesn't say if they are coming this year or not. They would need two jets to add these services.
Regional Aviation News, May 23 2005
"Now in its fifth quarter of restructured operations, Horizon Air has become profitable, Jeff Pinneo, the carrier's president, said. One-quarter of Horizon's revenue now comes from a code-share agreement with Frontier Airlines [FRNT]. It is flying eight CRJ 700s for Frontier. Another quarter of Horizon's capacity has been devoted to "harmonizing" its routes with Alaska Air [ALK], its sibling carrier. Under the program, the routes are coordinated so the most appropriate aircraft are serving the routes for either the regional or mainline.
Horizon has eight more CRJ 700s on order with two per year scheduled for delivery. It has the option to convert each order into a CRJ 900 or a Q400 turboprop."

It seems like Frontier is going the way of AirTran here in the Midwest. Frontier recently announced service into Akron/Canton and Flint, both big AirTran strongholds, Dayton is the same. I was hoping to see those cool animal tails here in Columbus myself, looks like they missed by a hundred miles to the west and to the northeast...lol.

It's interesting to me how Frontier always refers to themselves in press releases as a "low fare" airline when in fact they are merely a low cost airline. There's a big difference. Low costs, in this case, don't always equate to low fares. In most markets, there are many lower fare options. Just checking MCO-SEA, for instance, for 7/13-7/20 the lowest price I could find on F9 was $550. Much higher than almost every other airline, including nonstops on Alaska.
: Alphascan, Did they say what the schedule will be like in ABQ with the conversion to mainline service? They don't show the change in the reservations
: Well it's about time! It never ceases to amaze me when I hear about airlines falling all over themselves to expand out East, in slow-growth, heavily c
