When F9 178 from DEN touched down on runway 19 on Friday June 11, it marked the first scheduled flight by Frontier into MSY since August, 2005. As a former F9 employee at MSY, it was deja vu for me, and it was like welcoming back an old friend. Airport staff greeted the plane and gave all arriving and departing passengers souvenir Mardi Gras beads. Both flights were full. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Wow, thanks for the pics, they are great!

And a warm welcome back for F9 and hope they stay!

Did they use the 318 last time or is this the first 318 in MSY?

Did it land a little long and hot?

They used the A318 from time to time. It never stayed for more than a couple of months before going back to 319 (or back then, 733) though.

You're not making reference to a really old post of mine are you? If so, man, you have a great memory! LOL

There are pictures that I took of Frontier A318s at MSY in the A.net database.

Actually, it looks like F9 has been serving MSY from MCI for a few weeks now... Or is that flight branded as Midwest?


Flying in the middle seat of coach is much better than not flying at all!

Yup...those are branded as Midwest. MCI-MSY was announced after DEN-MSY was announced, but MCI started sooner. They had the water cannon salute a few weeks ago for the MCI-MSY flight, too.

Not according to Frontierairlines.com. It shows MSY flights being branded as F9, not YX.

The OAG and Skyguide both list MCI-MSY as YX 1533, not F9 1533

Seeing it as F9 on the Frontier site doesn't mean it is Frontier. All Midwest flights such as MKE-RDU and BOS-MKE are for sale on the Frontier website with the F9 code. But there is an asterisk saying "operated by Republic DBA Midwest Airlines".

The whole traditional Midwest system is still primiarly listed and sold as YX. Even flights which the A319 flies like MKE-LGA are sold primarily as YX, with Frontier code sharing. Strange... but how it is. MCI-MSY is operated as YX.

This will all change soon, of course. But for the time being, the traditional Midwest routes are all still listed and sold first and foremost as YX, but Frontier code shares on all those flights. And vice versa...you can buy F9 flights like DCA-DEN-SFO as Midwest.

Looks like all flights will be F9 by November 1st, so soon the distinction between YX and F9 will be gone, including the strange situations sometimes encountered by the mix. I'll be glad when those quirks are a thing of the past!

Starting off with two...one each to DEN and MCI.

Yeah...just figured it warranted its own thread. I'm not sure everyone wants to go through the F9 threads.

1533 is a YX branded flight on an E70. The rest are F9 branded flights on Airbus. So I am mostly correct. Only one is YX and the rest is F9 MCI-MSY:

YX 1553 (E70)
F9 824 (A319)
F9 178 (A318)

There seems to be confusion..

When AirframeAS said this...

Quoting AirframeAS (Reply 7):

I assume he meant from DEN only, yet everyone assumed ALL MSY flights, MCY/DEN combined.

Later AirframeAS says what is true all along, MCI-MSY is a YX Flight through Republic.

Frontier's Website shows this during booking.
Flight

F9 1533

Operated by

Republic Airlines DBA Midwest Airlines


So Knope and AirframeAS are correct as both mention MCI-MSY as YX Flights.

That is the only one that is NOT an Airbus flight, Alex.....operated by RW.

I know did u not see my post in BOLD?

I never said it was an Airbus flight, the discussions between you and knope was whether it was Midwest or Frontier.

Where I mentioned it was operated by Republic, doing business as Midwest Airlines!

The only MCI-MSY nonstop flight is 1553.

F9 824 is MCI-DEN, and F9 178 is DEN-MSY.
