After reading the forums for about a year now, I joined this morning. So go easy on me as this is my first time.
Does anyone know the status of the search for additional regional cities on Frontier with the Q400s? Have they made any decisions, has the city of aspen submitted any sort of proposal to them? I am sure they would have no problem filling the flights and maybe it would bring the prices down a little...1 month out to go home (MSY) for Christmas a roundtrip flight 23rd - 27th was running around 1200 bucks...I ended up using onepass miles out of EGE.
Also, the NWA ticket counter is still at the Aspen Airport despite not having had service there since the spring of 2006. Do any of NWA's regional carriers operate Dash 8s or CRJ 700s? I guess a Dash 8 from ASE to MSP or MEM is a bit of a stretch, but I am sure the 700 wouldn't be so bad. Would love to see another skyteam carrier into ASE...there are two star alliance USAIR express to PHX and of course the king of Colorado...United. Any thoughts?
