Re: Frontier and Toledo.

Frontier did a lot of "tags" at the end of spokes out of their Denver hub, something which was widely common among many airlines in those days. A few reasons why this was relatively common: 1. Average loads were much lower -- routinely in the 50's and 60's. So there was potential to fill m...
