I am trying to catch a flight out of IND tomorrow at 630 into DEN instead of waiting for the 3 pm. Anyone know what the no show factor out of IND for f9 is ? I called and they said the flight was sold out. But tickets and seats still show up on the site. I know this doesnt mean much but could they be counting on that no show factor to sell more seats?

Actually, in general the later in the day goes, the higher the variability in bookings to actual boardings.
People's plans change, run late at work or traffic, or decide to hop on earlier/later flights or rebook their itineraries completely and hence why most airlines authorize higher booking levels for flights later in the day then ones early on.

http://www.seatcounter.com/ is a quick snapshot of available seat in the various classes on any given flight. It does seem fairly accurate at least on AS. A -0- (goose egg) indicates no seats are available in that particular fare class.
I've come to the conclusion it takes a degree in rocket science to decipher all of the fare classes. A call to a F9 Res center would probably produce the same results. Maybe someone in the company would take a few minutes and translate the classes as they apply to Frontier for us.
"F" is first class which F9 doesn't have. I belive "Y" is full coach and "Q" and "K" are in the super saver tier of fares.
The classes vary from airline to airline, "K" class on F9 may not mean the same on a AA flight, I think "K" on AA is a mileage ticket. The site does not monitor the availability of WN seats.
Thanks In Advance
