Re: PIT Update Discussion Thread - 2019

Here's the schedule for Frontier's MCO resumption. Unsure if this is seasonal or year-round: F91174 321 MCO 0700 PIT 0930 F91175 321 PIT 1039 MCO 1319 The destinations page for PIT on F9's site is very misleading and seriously needs to be updated.

Re: pre-post screening spompert

I have to agree with the image being OS, looks like most of the aircraft is a bit too jaggy. Contrast isn't too bad, but it does seem to be on the high side and I would reduce it anyway.

I'll let a screener determine quality but I don't see how that's an issue. Noise seems really over-the-top IMHO.

PIT-DFW will also stay at 4x daily in February rather than 3x daily.
