F9 LGA 319 Question?

Tue May 10, 2005 9:18 am

This one is for any Frontier employees out there or any F9 diehard enthusiast. LGA gets two flights a day, because I work in a LGA ramp tower I see F9's afternoon flight 5 sometime 6 times a week, the evening terminator/morning originator typically 5-8 times a month. I have not seen a 319 newer than 917 in several months.I kept thinking it was just a coincidence but as the weeks tick buy I have begun to wonder. Is this an aircraft routing issue, is there something different about the earlier A319 deliveries that makes them better suited for LGA's short runways ? Just curious. Not to sound rude but I would enjoy replies from folks who might have the answer, if you just want to speculate the reason (non F9 folks) I can and already have done that !

Thanks Very Much

Shooting from the hip here, but it might be something to do with the engine upgrade, perhaps?
