Frontier Airlines to pull out of New Orleans: The Denver-based low-cost carrier is the first to permanently discontinue service to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. The airline had planned to resume service, but says conditions following the storm have forced it to change plans. "We just didn't know if the demand between Denver and New Orleans would be great enough in the foreseeable future," Frontier spokesman Joe Hodas tells The Denver Post. Frontier relies largely on leisure passengers to make its New Orleans flights profitable. And, with New Orleans tourism likely to be down for the foreseeable future, the airline said on its website that "it became clear to Frontier that service would not be a viable option in the near future." Still, Hodas adds that flights to New Orleans could be resumed "at some point in the future."
