BA,

Oops!! This isn't not very good load as for STL and IAH as for Frontier JetExpress as for itself. It was been discontinuing with nonstop from DEN-IAH/STL flight as for while now. Later on that if they are made getting better soon as for near of the future, right? If I am wrong one as for flight to the east. So it will able begin as for nonstop from DEN-RSW, CUN. Did you know that I was there into CUN as for early January 2002. So anyway, I'd will talk with you soon. bye as for now!!

Regards,

Scott

I guess their small STL timetable couldn't handle competition from the many AA MD-80/757 and United B737 flights for the same fare.

I knew it was coming, the DEN-STL market is slightly over supplemented with RJ's from United/Skywest now coming in too. I believe that was the knockout punch. I think AA is downsizing their DEN-STL ops too  Sad. Oh well, I'm tired of RJ's anyways
Thx,

It should be clarified that in Houston the two JetExpress flights will be replaced with a 737-300 for an increase in seats, though it is a decrease in flights.
