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
Quoting TheGreatChecko (Reply 1):
Lynx is getting a new plane in the late summer...
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

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.

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.
Man can be taken from Alaska. Alaska can never be taken from the man.
