F9 In IFP?

I've checked the forum, as well as the web, and can't find any mention of this.
I've noticed that F9 is looking to hire a staff for IFP - are they looking to try IFP-DEN? Or is this simply to handle charters? I know they've been trying some odd routes lately - do they think they could make this work?

haven't heard about this either. I can't imagine them hiring someone to handle charters. If Don Laughlin funds the service (much like he has for Sun Country), I could see them adding DEN-IFP. SY flew the route as a scheduled service back from 2002-2004 I think.

RP just won the contract to fly casino charters from Harrahs.

G4 will be removing their aircraft and RP is using one the E190s that F9 previously had.

Ahh that makes sense. I forgot about their new contract.

Very interesting, seeing as they had been using G4 for a number of years (Anytime you saw a G4 a/c here at ATL it was for a casino charter on behalf of Harrah's Entertainment.). I guess with G4 retiring their MD-87s, Caesars Entertainment didn't want the larger a/c.

For the typical casino charters, that's probably the right a/c size for the job. I've had the opportunity to take advantage of charter offers from Harrah's/Caesars in the past, and I'm a low-tier Total Rewards member. So they must have trouble filling some of these charters (One such charter I got an invite for several years ago was to Reno but I had to drive to Montgomery as that was where the G4 charter flight was operating from. No thanks.) so going with E-190s gives them a better chance of filling up these flights.

I guess that means that Gold Transportation's contract for charters must have went to them as well.

It would be interesting to see a scheduled airline like Great Lakes with service to a hub such as LAX or PHX that's for sure. The main thing hurting IFP is the relatively easy drive to LAS, especially now that it is all four-lane. It is also a quick drive to catch Great Lakes out of IGM to LAX or PHX (via PRC).

Service to PHX might not work. Obviously the drive is different, but here in PRC, Great Lakes cancelled the PHX service a couple of years ago, and switched to DEN (via FMN). Now PRC gets the LAX service daily and the DEN service daily through PGA.

I suppose they could make LAX work, perhaps as a tag from the PRC flight

I found this a while ago, published 6/10, with air stat info about IFP and subtitled "A discussion with Frontier Airlines"

Since this is 2010, to this time nothing has become of it. And IFP-Denver is only about 21 pdew, but maybe could be increased with some dedicated n/s service between the two?

Anyway, lots of info about the airport and not really that old (2009 stats).

Quick easy reading.

Gold lost the Caesars Ent. contract... the only thing they do now is Trump properties

Looks like RP will be handled by Midlantic Jet here

G4 also flew charters IFP-SBN-TOL and IFP-SBN-FWA looks like with F9 in SBN maybe we will see those charters on RP E190's.
