I don't think the COS
/PUB thing has the population base as the DEN
/FNL thing. I can see FNL being an alternative airport to DIA. COS
kinda does that already. But I see the FNL/DEN
relationship more like the ORD
thing or the SFO
hasn't been at FNL long enough to prove to the airline industry that FNL is a great alternative airport.
Perhaps, although not too likely in the near future, I can see Air Tran making the trip between FNL and ATL
. Or perhaps SWA will see the DEN
alternative and enter in the FNL market. Now that would be a boost to the local economy. But we all know that FNL doesn't have the logistics for that kind of service yet.
It will be interesting to see what happens to FNL in the next 5 to 10 years.
