Recently Frontier began non-stop service from Memphis to Denver, Las Vegas and Orlando. If I remember correctly, AirTran then added non-stop Orlando service from the Bluff City all the while Northwest came back with an additional flight to Orlando plus upgrading their Denver flights to mainline. Has anyone any news on load factors?
Several years back Midway began nonstop service, MEM-RDU. That didn't last long as NWA immediately came in with new flights to RDU and then Midway went bankrupt. I hope Memphis can hang onto Frontier and the additional service with AirTran. God knows the city needs the competition!

The routes are doing very well as Mariner has stated. Especially the early flight from DEN-MEM because it makes that quick stop in MEM and goes on to MCO. It is an overflow for the non-stop DEN-MCO
I had heard from a NW gate agent that they were thinking of scaling back the flights from DEN-MEM after they rushed to bump them up to airbus from the RJ. It has been a while since I heard that, so I am not sure if that is still the case.
