Sounds like she's a marketing exec for WN. Do you think she's angling for a high position for WN at some point?

That's okay, I've heard a TV reporter claim SMF is a hub for WN as well. I about fell out of my chair when I heard that one.

TV reporters are not hired for their knowledge, but for how cute the look on air.

Her comparison of Denver to Chicago in order to justify Denver being a "three-airline town" is unrealistic. For starters, Denver is not Chicago - Chicago is a vastly larger market than Denver with dramatically different dynamics.

I continue to believe that, the Denver Aviation Manager's statements notwithstanding, Denver cannot remain a three-airline town. I believe that one way or another, that competitive dynamic is unsustainable and will inevitably change.

On the security situation, I 100% agree that the main checkpoint at DIA is terrible and needs to be fixed. Her talk about replacing the airlines' existing ticket counters with essentially bag drops and self-service machines, and putting TSA up where the ticketing areas are now, is very interesting.

I think the DIA security system works well. The most important variable is the level to which TSA staffs the screening stations. With adequate staffing, and with enough lines open, it works really well.

As much as the media makes egregious airline mistakes, I think this one can slide. What is she supposed to say, "Denver is a hub/very-large-O/D-operation-with-less-connecting-passengers-than-a-true-hub of United, Frontier, and Southwest"? One on this site can even argue WN has hubs, as hub can be very subjective and their is no real definition stating X flights with no more than Y% connecting...



Ironically I have never flown a Delta MD-90 :)
