I'm curious how they calculated the average industry fare for UST...being that they're the only airline serving the airport at the moment.

Doesn't it seem like the fares are higher than before? No more $9 fares. Why?

Quoting flyDTW1992 (Reply 4):

Didn't NK also add that? More overlap...

With all of F9's route volatility, who knows? Give them credit for being bold and aggressive.


CVG-LAX and CVG-SFO. Big adds for the airport, and I expect them to sell. Always thought there was potential for UA/AA on these routes (with PIT and IND seeing west coast service).... Good for CVG to get some new adds just days after F9 had cancelled some routes.

CVG-PHL and CVG-IAH, who knows? Feels more like throwing darts at the board. Routes like IAD and DFW were cancelled, and never felt right with the frequencies.

A couple interesting adds. But what is more curious is a lot of the routes are less than daily. From the past couple of extensions I thought they would continue to just add daily routes.

CVG-SFO great add only DL right now
CVG-LAX same as above
IND-PHL great to see competition on this route, but I would have preferred TTN again. Loved that flight

Probably got too much angry backlash from it -- it was very limited (a handful of dates offering one seat at that price).

Will likely lead to further UA reductions. Yes, it's a slow travel season, but some flights like CLE-LAS have been awfully empty lately (sans the Holiday period).

Thu Jan 07, 2016 3:12 pm

I really don't get F9. I only follow the Midwest...ie, OMA, MCI, DSM, CID etc so can't speak about other cities. They make OMA-DEN daily in January, the lowest demand month for the market, then comes March and it goes down to 6x weekly, then in June, by far the strongest month from Omaha with the College World Series in town, average loads on all OMA flights that month are around 95%, they go down to only 4x weekly.

Analyzing the 4x weekly in June, the flights are on M,W,F,Sa, 730pm departure from OMA. For evening flights, the highest prices are found on Thursday and Sunday evenings, both days they are not flying this route. Tuesdays and Saturday evenings are by far the lowest demand times on OMA-DEN, and the operate a flight at both times. Seriously?

It is like they are just setting this city pair up to fail by flying exactly opposite of where demand dictates.

If it were me and Frontier was set on flying the OMA-DEN flight in the evening (I would change this to the morning with a RON in OMA), I would fly June daily, back down to 3x weekly in January with flights on Sunday, Thursday and Friday, then vary between 4x weekly and daily the rest of the year.

In addition, the busiest days of the year from OMA is when Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholders meeting is. Every flight into OMA on Thursday and Friday April 28th and 29th are 100% full, can't even purchase a ticket on any airline a week in advance, with absolute crazy prices charged. This is true leaving OMA on Sunday May 1st too.
For example, United is charging right now $1,500 roundtrip ORD-OMA, $1,000 DEN OMA, AS is $1100 SEA-OMA etc etc for that weekend. Point is, Frontier isn't even flying OMA-DEN on that Sunday last year or this year! They could get $400 per seat, every seat on the plane on the OMA-DEN flight on Sunday. You can't tell me they will get that yield on any other flight in the the nation on that particular day.

I just don't understand why they don't customize each individual city to the respective demand.

F9 seems to just be adding back most of their routes they previously dropped at CLE. The last time they added routes en masse they were up to 17 destinations, then slowly paired it back to, what, 9? I think only PHL and PDX are new.

Happy to see the MSY adds just from the perspective of ULCC service in the MCO and PHL markets, which will help keep fares in check somewhat. Frankly I'm surprised F9 added these instead of NK.

They're probably customizing each individual city with respect to relative respective demand. It may be OMA's big day but they probably figure those aircraft are better used elsewhere during June. Would you rather have College World Series traffic, small in the grand scheme of the world, or mop up families' summer vacation travel spend? Frontier's probably banking on winter ski traffic January through March as the best use of an airplane, then putting that airplane elsewhere during peak summer travel.

We are a transfer station, not strictly O&D. You should see where a lot of transfers go from here. They are really missing out.

For what it's worth, STL is an awful airport. Why they are the focus of attention is beyond me. Just my opinion.

What's wrong with the WN connecting experience at STL? Most of the problems with STL relate to the Main Terminal and to various O&D-related issues (traffic circulation, connection between Metrolink and the East Terminal, etc.).

The Frontier passenger base is all leisure/VFR. Some business pax may fly with them by choice, perhaps because of price, but the airline doesn't schedule to that market.

Here's the Frontier press release, with the full list of new service and the various fares:

That's the point, Southwest doesn't really need to respond - nor do any of the major, since Frontier is blatantly not targeting the business market, their bread-and-butter.

Some may, but less than daily is a tougher thing to combat, in the sense of - "why bother?"

Quoting Atlanta (Reply 44):
Did F9 previously serve BOS? For some reason I could swear I've seen the animals on the tail there.

Years ago, but there were problems with the Boston airport authority that left a bitter taste in F9's mouth.

New England is a gap in the F9 system. I do not think they are in a rush to return there, other than perhaps a summer seasonalin the future. B6 has made their niche there, and is very successful with it.

RE: F9 Adds 42 Routes

I count a total of 3 of the 42 routes have NK as direct competition. With these additions they are also eliminating 1 route where they previously competed with NK. They appear, to me, to be staying away from each other.

So slightly off topic but, any indications or rumor about DEN - MSO? Perhaps the dickie birds may have chirped a bit.

CVG-PHL and CVG-IAH, who knows? Feels more like throwing darts at the board. Routes like IAD and DFW were cancelled, and never felt right with the frequencies.

CVG-DFW is coming back, along with CVG-PHX.

I suppose I should've googled first and asked later, nevertheless do you have any idea what the issues with Massport was/were? And MCI seems like an odd choice, I would've thought it would be DEN.
