Haven't heard anything specific about whether F9 will return to DCA though it seems highly unlikely that they would not resume DEN-DCA when allowed to do so once again. DCA services are being allowed to resume on what appears to be a very limited basis with gradual buildup. I would expect to see F9, along with AS and HP (if the latter survives) serving DCA again under their "beyond (1,250 mi.) perimeter" exemptions by year end.

Im not a betting man but if I was in vegas I would bet against Frontier returning to DCA. I think you won't see any more "beyond 1,250" exemptions because with that distance you are getting into larger amounts of fuel, one of the reasons certain flights were targeted on 9/11 to begin with. I just see the end of the "1,250" flights as being one more security measure that will be implimented at DCA.

Alaska Airlines plans to re-start SEA-DCA non-stop service when allowed, which is anticipated to be in the not-too-distant future. It has been announced that the route will be flown by 73G equipment in place of the 739 type originally assigned. Alaska launched SEA-IAD non-stop today (10/8) with 73G equipment. The plan is for IAD service to continue in addition to SEA-DCA if/when the latter is able to be resumed.

I thought I read on the internet that Frontier announced would not resume service at DCA, even when it would have been able to. Perhaps if you did a search on press releases at Frontier, you couls find it.If I find where I read that I will post a link.
