America West And Frontier Request DCA Routes

Sat May 06, 2000 9:14 am

Today both America West and Frontier formally announced their requests for the slots for beyond perimeter flights into DCA. Frontier requested 2 from DEN and AWA is requesting both from PHX and LAS, though the press release did not specify how many.
Honestly I thnik Frontier and AWA have much better chances than United, Delta, or American... I am not sure about TWA. The Ford Act specifies that the routes should go towards new entrants in the market and to foster competition. This would seem to allude to AWA and Frontier. Also, there are another 12 slots available within the perimeter... who would get those??? More slots to AWA, Midway, Midwest Express, AirTran maybe??? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
