The reservation systems for Midwest Airlines and Frontier Airlines are now one system

All tickets for both Midwest and Frontier, which are being merged under the Frontier name, will now be purchased through FrontierAirlines.com">FrontierAirlines.com, and can be serviced by Frontier's reservation centers at (800) 4321-FLY, according to the announcement from Republic Airways Holdings Inc. When traveling, passengers can check in and print boarding passes at FrontierAirlines.com or on any airport kiosk, said Indianapolis-based Republic, which last year bought both Frontier and Midwest. -MORE-

Another positive step in this merger? Has this step been quicker than most? (announced merger in April res system merged by Oct 1, 5 months)

In the title, don't you mean FrontierAirlines.com? Frontier.com is registered to Frontier Communications, a large rural/suburban phone company, and I don't think they would want to give that domain name to F9.

I think this is actually month ahead of schedule. Wasn't the res system supposed to have been integrated 6 months after the F9/YX combination was announced? And didn't both F9 and YX use Sabre? That should have simplified things a bit.

Yes, both YX and F9 were hosted on SABRE. Their databases simply resided in two different partitions of the same computer system. This "reservation system consolidation" is really a non-event.

It's only significance is that it marked the end of any flights operated under the YX code and Midwest branding. All flights are now F9 coded, regardless if the aircraft is still blue and white.

Aren't there thousands and thousands of PNR's that had to be converted over from YX to F9? I have a couple and they got new confirmation codes. One lost the seat assignments but they were restored.

As somebody who does data conversions for a living, there is no such thing as a "non event" when two systems are integrated, even if they are on the same platform prior to the integration.

That's for sure...

You've got to worry about unique identifiers that might not be so unique between the two systems, what if one database has a slightly different structure than the other... or a slightly different version... ugh...
