granted it was dark (around 615pm or so) but i am sure
it was a crj-700 and had the frontier large billboard titles
couldn't see the registration

can't find a horizon or frontier crj to any of their destinations from
SFO at that time horizon has a sjc>pdx but not from sfo

was it an extra section for the holidays perhaps ?

can't wait to see photos !!!

did a search on airliners.net, planepictures.net and jetphotos.net
but can't see any new colors anywhere

anyone have a photo or info yet ?

i know the new frontier jet express op by horizon starts 1-1-04

Jmacias34 is correct. Its A/C #601. Its actually made a over-weight landing here yesterday making my long day even longer. A/C #616 and #617 are in all white color (we call them Casper) and will soon have F9 sticker put on up in PDX. QX people may have the dates for that!
