Quoting PVD757 (Reply 2): I can only hope PVD can get on the F9 radar screen...
How is the gate situation at PVD? That seems to be the biggest issue every time I've been there. They are all taken except A2 which is an equipment parking lot for US. The other end is so crowded all the time that there is no space to move.. What's the temporary remedy to the problem?
for a carrier like F9 - no problem at all since I HIGHLY doubt they will lease thier own gate. With all the capacity cutting by DL, AA, NW, and US - there are plenty of gates to share depending on the time of day...
FL or B6 would be tough to squeeze in right now without getting creative.

Read this quote...
Frontier's service launch in Hartford marks the airline's return to New England. Until now, Hartford was the second largest unserved market from Denver, and the largest market from Denver to not have service in the last two years. Frontier previously provided service between Denver and Boston until 2002.
1 question.. What's the largest market without nonstop service? And when are they going to rectify THAT problem?

Quoting Richierich (Reply 20): If they couldn't make BOS work for whatever reason, what makes them think that BDL is going to be any better?
BOS failed due to operational issues that Massport (reportedly) failed to even care about with respect to F9. Loads were good but costs to operate at BOS made the flights unprofitable especially with the longer stage length (fuel).

One of the things that seems to be lost in the BDL announcement is the fact that the BWI station will close effective Januray 8th. I know Frontier has their own employees there above wing. I hope they are able to find something in the Baltimore/DC area within F9.
