F9's Kudos From Airbus Vs B6's Nothing

Sun Nov 06, 2005 11:41 am

This is an interesting article (for me).

http://www.airbusnorthamerica.com/newsroom/customerservices.asp

I find it strange that Frontier is hailed as the only U.S. airline that is totally Airbus. I agree, it is true, except for their feeder regional jets, I think that is Horizon.

It's just the B6 had an all Airbus fleet at the time of the article, even though the ERJ's were on order.

I don't know, I just thought it was a slight blunder or whatever you wanna call it on Airbus' part. Kudos for F9 saving $11 million a year and absolutely nothing against Frontier.

WOW B6 is getting ERJ's! The E190's they have are considered a mainline aircraft and not a ERJ!

B6 had 101 non-Airbus jets on firm order at the time of the article... suffice to say, Airbus had no real reason to comment on them.

They are applauding F9 because they used to fly 737s and now have replaced them all with Airbus, while B6 was a new carrier and chose those pesky E190s over the "far superior" A318...  Wink
Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.
