Recently Frontier began non-stop service from Memphis to Denver, Las Vegas and Orlando. If I remember correctly, AirTran then added non-stop Orlando service from the Bluff City all the while Northwest came back with an additional flight to Orlando plus upgrading their Denver flights to mainline. Has anyone any news on load factors?
Several years back Midway began nonstop service, MEM-RDU. That didn't last long as NWA immediately came in with new flights to RDU and then Midway went bankrupt. I hope Memphis can hang onto Frontier and the additional service with AirTran. God knows the city needs the competition!
