Gate Space For Frontier At LAX

Wed Apr 07, 2004 12:27 am

I was looking at the latest timetable for F9 after the LAX expansion. According to the schedule after May 23 F9 will be very busy between 9-11 am.
9:00 LAX-DEN
9:35 LAX-STL
9:55 LAX-MCI
10:00 LAX-MSP
10:55 LAX-PHL
10:55 LAX-DEN

That's 6 flights in 2 hours. Does anyone know what their plans are for gates, ticket counter space, etc. Looks like there could be some long lines unless they have extra people to help with check in.

Frontier has been getting ready for this:

http://www.rockymountainnews.com/drmn/business/article/0,1299,DRMN_4_2779794,00.html

Half way down the article, it explains that Frontier has increased the staff from 20 to 48, has increasd the check in desks from 4 to 10 and will retain gate 39 and share gates for the other flights.

Is that already make hired more staffs into the ticket counter and it would getting very busy day in LAX, huh? I'm guess this would be perfect for them.

Is that one of the old TWA gates? I had read somewhere that LAX was going to common use gates in certain areas to improve utilization in certain terminals.

Quickmover:

I forgot - the 10.55 am departure LAX/PHL is the regular LAX/DEN flight that continues on to PHL.

The LAX/PHL non-stop is a red-eye and leaves at 11.20 pm.

"10:55 LAX-PHL
10:55 LAX-DEN"

Are those, perhaps, the same flight? As in LAX-DEN-PHL?

I bet your right. I didn't look at the number of stops.
