Just checked in with SBN. Delta cannot give a firm date on when they will start using larger two-class jets on SBN-ATL but they are coming in the future. Right now the folks are happy to get another daily R/T.
In addition to the lone (for now) EV
is going from 3 to 4 RTs as well come September.

I was just curious with Tyra Squires (ex-Allegiant Communications Director) now the Director Of Marketing at Frontier and being that she knows how successful the Allegiant operation at SBN has been, Is there a possibility that F9 can be returning to SBN-DEN and make it successful with a better person at the helm. After all I personally think that the service wasn't marketed very well by the then Frontier people.
If, as you said, advertising was a problem with F9
, a return would need both sides working together on advertising to ensure that the service is successful. This year marks G4
's seventh year at FWA
, and they have done a lot of creative collaboration and promotion between the two sides over the years.
