All they did was confirm the order first announced in February.
It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.

That's not mentioned in the article, so I can't tell you.

It was even better to see it when it happened 3 months ago.  Wink

Maybe I'll get to fly one of the brand new 318s on an LAX-SFO flight.

While the decision was announced in February, the contracts have only just been signed.

It also doesn't alter the fact that it will be nice to see more A318s flying. Not to mention A320s flying for Frontier.

Actually the contracts were signed in Feb. There was a 90 day "buyer's remorse" clause built in so that either party had the option to cancel the order.
