Airlines In The Frontier

Thu Oct 28, 1999 6:27 am

I do not support the United Shuttle I believe it is preying on Frontier. The Denver-Salt Lake City Route was created to compete against Western Pacific (when it moved to Denver) and against Frontier. I believe it qualifies as a predatory practice. Western Pacific did price their product below cost, but Frontier does not. The Shuttle is sometimes priced below cost, I have observed it through fare checks. I have not seen Frontier price below cost.

Frontierboy:
There will always be a bully on the playground. UA is Denver's "bully". I don't mean this is a bad thing. Of course, they're bigger than anyone else, they have more power in the community and they have the most influence on what happens here. Some other airfields,fortunately, have more bullies who clash and bump heads once in a while.
What UA does with the shuttle route to SLC as you brought up, is keep the market competitive. Competition is good for the consumer. Surely, most seats on a particular flight are not going to be at that low fare. I have a strong feeling that F9's overall price range for all seats is going to be lower than UA's.
Another reason people perceive UA as predatory is their frequent service. This is what business travelers want. They want choices and flexibility, not two or three options a day. Don't worry, F9 is doing fine
