As I pointed out in a previous post, one of F9
's highest load factors is on its DEN
flight. They currently operate one round trip a day, and usually up it to two flights daily in the winter months. They haven't announced their winter timetables yet, but their second flight usually runs from Halloween to Easter.
It seems to be one of the most popular rumors on this board that F9
is unhappy with FLL
. This rumor seems to have been around since 2002 when F9
began the DEN
flights. From what I can tell, nothing can be further from the truth. They used to be out of gate F10 (they should have secured gate F9
) in terminal 3, but were moved to gate B6
in terminal 1 with WN
sometime in 2003. F9
gets a lot of traffic on this route, especially from DEN
passengers heading to Miami and Fort Lauderdale for cruises. If you are in terminal 1 at FLL
on any weekend around noon, walk by the F9
ticket line and note how many passengers have luggage tags that read "Princess", "Carnival", "Royal Caribbean", "Celebrity", and "Holland America".
