Re: Frontier Airlines Network Thread 2018

Their online route map is a joke. Still doesn't show cities that they are now flying to (LFT), and it is such a jumble now anyway.
BOI ends today and resumes June 12, according to the extended schedule.

XNA probably has all of the Wal Mart and other Bentonville traffic. Berfore XNA, visitors to WM could Fly into LIR or TUL and drive......
