Is Frontier still planning to fly to Missoula and/or Bozeman? If so, what are the schedules and equipment?

I am hoping to see them over the long Memorial Day weekend.

Thanks!

Boseman, yes, Missoula, no.

When Frontier ended the Republic contract, they needed aircraft and MSO was the least well booked of the new routes - United had decided to make a stand there by going mainline (why?).

So BZN starts on May 22 as 3 x daily. Initially, one of the flights is Republic E170, but that changes to all Lynx when the Republic flying stops.

The United mainline in MSO is only seasonal. They really only added about 60 seats or so compared to last year. The difference is 2 A320 and 1 CRJ compared to 3 CR7 and 2 CRJ last year. I don't think that qualifies as a "stand." United also added seasonal mainline from BZN to both DEN and ORD as well as weekend non-stops to both LAX and SFO. But even with all the changes in BZN, United really only added about 60 seats a day there too. That's only the equivilent of another CR7 per day. It appears to me that United just sees the summer potential in Montana and added a few seats to BZN and MSO much like they added two CRJ flights to HLN, a third CRJ flight to GTF and a daily non-stop CR7 to FCA from ORD all for the summer. (They also added weekend non-stops from MSO and FCA to SFO) Billings, however, appears to have lost their weekend non-stop to SFO that they had last year.

Like Mariner said: 3x Daily starting May 22. It looks like it will go 100% Lynx on June 7. The 4XXX flights are Republic 170s and the 3XXX flights are Lynx Q400's.

If you notice anything else, feel free to correct.

May 22 it will be:

Let me rephrase it then - United raised the ante on what was, for Lynx/Frontier, probably one of the (presently) less valuable routes.

I'm just hoping they make it to the Memorial Day weekend!  duck 

Okay, so maybe surviving to Memorial Day is a no-brainer. But in the long term, IMO it gets a little dicey with the price of oil where it's at ($123/bbl today) with regards to some of these relatively smaller and weaker carriers.
