Using the definition of a major as a carrier with $1 Billion in annual revenue, will 2005-2006 be Frontier's year? Their fiscal year ends 3/31/06, and as of their last fiscal year, they reported $800+million in revenue. Any predictions?

They reported $731 million in revenue. Becoming a major is probably still a few years away.

in the last fiscal year they had round and about 42 planes flying. On this moment it is 46, and in the next 4 years, they have only 4 new aircraft a year joining the fleet, they are slowing down their growth. If we assume ticket prices and other factors remain the same, it takes about 3 more years from now til they pass $1 bln.

nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

My guess would be late 2007 early 2008 though if someone goes out that could all change.
