As Randall stated it was a no show! I called after I got off work today to SOC and Dispatch at Frontier. Frontier pre-loaded the A318 into its schedule system early for booking purposes only. The aircraft is officially delivered on June 23 from PHX
in the afternoon.
So for the SEA
guys, its not coming. Frontier until weds will have other aircraft fly the routes that it is scheduled to be on until the aircraft is going to be delivered. I was told that once the airplane is in place in PHX
, that it will undergo proving flights, non-pax with the FAA Check Airmen. Then will be fully operational for Weds. I was also told the schedule from PHX
on Weds does not reflect a A318, and it will take over a 733 on one of the flights that day.
Also for future reference, Frontier will never have an aircraft delivered through any other cities except MCO
, as thats what dispatch told me.
So "Griswald" the bear will have to wait a few more days.
