I don't really have a problem anyway, because I think the rumors are amusing - and I think the sources are often as amusing.
Amusing? Sure, made up, absolutely not. I was sitting on the backside of a grouping of chairs; the woman (who is in management for maintenance training with DH
) was sitting on the other side of me. She was showing very nice pictures of their first A319 which she had taken on its initial approach into Dulles, on one of the new widescreen Apple laptops. While she and a gate agent were talking, she brought up the discussions about the proposed code share. She indicated that it was very preliminary and that she hoped that it would develop into a substantial deal. She also indicated that they may have some type of relationship at Denver in regards to ground handling.
After listening to their conversation I learned that she had been in Chattanooga doing maintenance training for new service that ACA
was starting from Cincinnati on behalf of Delta. While there she said that she did the training for both the Dojets and the RJs, just in case that DH
wanted to start service there after the contract with Delta ended.
All in all, rumor, just like many other posts on this board, but not simply because I thought it was a neat idea. I do not even know very much about Frontier, or their operations.
