Re: Frontier and their on-order A321XLR

I wonder if they'd try FAI and ANC again, from smaller or unserved/underserved cities less-than-daily in the summer. Examples:

LAS-ANC
LAS-FAI
LAS-JNU
DEN-JNU
PHX-ANC
PHX-FAI
AUS-ANC
SMF-ANC
SAN-ANC

etc, etc, etc,

Re: ANC closure 5-2-20

Just got back from FAI, watched the AN-225 take off to ANC. There was also a FedEx 777, Volga-Dnepr IL-76, SkyLease 747-400F, and Cargolux 747-8F on the ground. Exciting day at FAI.
