Currently on flightaware.com F9 # 1532 (FFT1532) enroute from TYS to DEN is a A320. I don't ever recall the A320 being used at TYS. Perhpas a repositioning flight back to DEN.
|Quoting MasseyBrown (Reply 98):|
Frontier.com says the airline will operate DEN-MSY from November to the end of February as seasonal. Seems like an odd choice of season, although it does include Mardi Gras. Outside of this window, there is apparently NO service at all.
I'm disappointed. I figured MSY would be ideal for increased service to Frontier's new focus cities. Maybe later ...
|Quoting mcg (Reply 106):|
F9 is looking for a guarantee from Missoula. Seems a little odd considering the LF associated with this summer's service.
|Quoting mcg (Reply 106):|
How often do airlines actually 'cash in' these sort of guarantees?

I find it interesting to have Dave doing the interview. Based on watching him so far, he's been a fairly silent executive.
|Quoting mariner (Reply 114):|
I don't know that he has changed, people don't change, but something has. He seems to have taken off his dark cloak from the US Airways days and his tone in some of his recent letters has been positively sunny.

Frontier this evening ran for the first time a television commercial in Denver using F9 employees to promote their new slogan " Low Fares Done Right".
|Quoting jcwr56 (Reply 119):|

|Quoting Frontier14 (Reply 122):|
Mariner, not exactly but the Denver tv commercial did use some excerpts from the one you found, as well as many of the same employees. Thanks for sharing this one......

I am sure a few that were forced to take a job with the subcontractors would tell a much different story.
|Quoting freakyrat (Reply 128):|
With a lower CASM and more fuel efficient planes this should make CID-DEN, BMI-DEN, and returning to RFD-DEN, GRR-DEN and SBN-DEN profitable. When F9 was operating SBN-DEN their CASM as reported to the DOT was about 9.5 cents. Carrying an average of 125 passengers on a 138 seat A319 at the fares they were charging was unsustainable. Also most passengers were connecting over O/D which costs more. They were profitable during the spring and summer months though and most flights were full and the DGS folks told me they didn't even have room for non-revs on a lot of them. With their financials in better shape who knows what will happen with lot of the abandoned cities. If Allegiant can make it in the small and mid sized cities with the the same ULCC model. F9 can do it also.

We have a new Griswald and the real Griswald in the same photo, so now there are two Griz in the fleet.
How they gunna explain that?
|Quoting GentFromAlaska (Reply 132):|
No doubt Griz is the lead spokes-critter and leader of the pack (interchange zoo or forest at your discretion). For no other reason than symbology I would have lead off with the new Griz too even with some overlap.
This is the first design upgrade of the tail critters since the zoo came to be a lot of years ago. As I'm sure you recall the tail animals at one time were added based on the their ingenuousness of the region and new city selection. I suspect the old Griz (Griz II) will be in the paint shop before too long; leaving the king of beast to regain his/her dominance across the fleet.
|Quoting kingcavalier (Reply 133):|
I believe he means the animal on 227FR is not Griz. It's the brown bear Bennie that is currently on 951FR. Griz is sitting down with his head turned. Bennie is standing up facing forward. But 227FR has Grizwald's name on the nose. So, either the advertising team or Frontier made a mistake or they plan to rename Bennie and make him Griz. That means the old Griz would be gone. It's like when they tried to switch Darrin on Bewitched with a new actor and thought no one would notice.
|Quoting jeepyjeep (Reply 135):|
I believe all of the animals are going to receive an updated look and I don't think the "new" Griz is a mistake.
|Quoting MasseyBrown (Reply 138):|
That is the same Dave S. who ran US Air at the time of the first bankruptcy? IMO, he did almost everything right at US. His two failures: employee relations and failing to get enough benefit out of the first bankruptcy.
|Quoting gustywinds (Reply 137):|
But this isn't a cropped or reworked image of Griz. The animal image on 227 is currently on 951. The animal is not Griz. It's Bennie.

Looks like a reworked image of Bennie

Because WN is the dominant tenant at MDW perhaps F9 yielded to WN seeing no reason to compete with them for less than daily table scraps.
