SAN has a curfew so the flights cannot leave SAN any earlier and the flights from SLC and DEN to MSP must leave at the times they do in order to maintain connectivity for that planes flights for the rest of the day.
I have no insight into the Frontier operation in DEN, but, while tight, your connection in SLC will most likely be fine.
|Quoting Jkudall (Reply 2):
As for SLC the only explanation I can give is that between about 8:00 am and noon, every gate DL has at SLC is occupied. Flights such as the MSP flight leaving a gate at 9:40 will quickly be replaced with another plane arriving.
The minimum connection time in SLC is 25 min.
The winter schedule shows the flight times as 615a - 915a which makes this a legal connection to a 940a departure. The March 2nd schedule shows the flight times as 615a - 918a which is short by 3 min. Chances are this just has not been noticed by DL schedulers yet and will be corrected with another schedule change later.
Why don't you just fly NW non-stop?

Every year I travel from San Diego to Minnesota in late June/early July.
Suncountry also flies SAN-MSP nonstop.
