SRQ is a slightly niche market (i.e. higher end), but essentially part of the TPA metro. Not sure I see the value proposition of opening it up without a strategy for differentiating it to customers (or nice subsidies from SRQ).
I was a big supporter of Frontier when they tried PIE for a while, which is certainly close to TPA than SRQ. But it didn't work - or it didn't work then. I'd very much like to see them give it another shot a little further away from TPA.
Not only did they try PIE...they tried PGD....so PGD/RSW is not the same market?
Honestly, with Allegiant here, I wouldn't be surprised to see F9 come in. Probably not NK though
