Is there any chance Frontier (or Lynx) will begin service this summer from Denver to Missoula? I need to book a couple trips to Missoula and would love to be able to fly Frontier.

Thx in advance for any info.

Anything is possible....

Lynx is getting a new plane in the late summer, so a new city may be a possibility. Who knows what that will be.

Well it was in their plans before so I would assume they'd still be looking at returning again. Well, Lynx as opposed to Frontier mainline this time.

Missoula has a good chance, but then again Sioux Falls also has a very good chance with DEN being in the top two most traveled to non-stop. Of course either one would be a nice addition to Lynx.

Wouldn't this technically be a resumption of service considering they served it early on?

No, they never started service. They announced the service but never started it.

I am thinking they are referring to Frontier II having serviced MSO before in mid 90's with their 737s. That was back when they also went to BZN BIS FAR MOT GFK LAS and DEN.

Actually frontier announces MSO last year, but axed the plans to fly there a month before start up. So not likely to return. my personal opinion is if any thing is resurrected it will be SUX, than my best guess (personal guess nothing more) would be LBB and AMA op by Lynx as well as taking back ABQ and the remaining flights for BOI and OKC, and possibly taking OMA from F9

Off topic, I know, but that's an interesting idea, those two haven't been on my list for potential Lynx cities.

Is there enough O&D at AMA to support DEN flights? I know Southwest flies the route, but I assume - perhaps wrongly - that it is for DAL pax wanting to get to DEN.

There is also the possibility - not now, but eventually - of Lynx doing a double - DEN-AMA-DFW or even DEN-LBB-DFW, I suppose.

Incorrect. F9 is trying to get a new A320 and lease return an A318 this spring. A new city is not in the works. LynxAviation is not getting any new planes this year, from what I have heard.

Airframe, that is incorrect, we have taken 2 of the options one should be delivered in july (meaning some where in sept with bombardier's track record,) and the other to be delivered in feb. so your source is incorrect. lynx will get one more plane in 09 and at least one more in '10

That's my understanding, too. I had heard June for the 11th Q, but that may move a tad, as you say.

SM has also said they intend to exercise all the Q400 options.

Quoting AirframeAS (Reply 9):

That's separate from Lynx. Yes, SM wants very much to get more A320's in the fleet, and fewer A318's.

My question, is where in the world are we going to park all these Q-400's we share gate 54 with gate 52, but we have 68,66,64,62,60,58,56,and 54 that only holds 8 planes at once, we have 10 planes now, but with 20 how on earth would we manage that?

I believe this is "under discussion" with DIA.

Then again - no one has ever said, to my knowledge, that all the Q400's would be based at DEN.  Smile

Yes Airframe, it is incorrect, lol go back to the state of the airlne, Menke mentions it. Also You do not always get the same info we L4 people get from and cam.

Mariner, That is rumored that 5 of the options could go to fly for another carrier, but alas thats just from rumor and speculation, the only thing i know as solid is We accepted the first two options due to arrive in rouchly June(ish) and feb respectively.

Who currently flies to MSO and from where? YX (Horizon) offers several daily SEA-MSO flights. UA did fly the route from DEN.

If memory serves me the USDA Forest Service has a significant first responder training center base near MSO. The academy trains those who fight the western wild fires (e.g. smoke jumpers) and other National Response Center agency attendees. MSO may be there inventory cache supply/support facility.

The potential traffic routed through Denver makes it plausible although Frontier Holdings already knows that. Lynx would have to compete annually with UA for the federal GSA city pairs contract program to capture a majority stake of this sect of business travelers.

I believe SM has addressed that - that it might eventually happen, but not yet, and that presently, they can better be used for Lynx.

But then - who knows what time frame SM has in his head.  Smile

It would be so nice if Lynx flew to FLG, that would be awesome! Only two carriers fly into FLG at the moment: QX and YV.
