Re: Frontier Airlines Network Thread 2018

The SJC-TUL and SJC-SAT routes seem like seasonal routes to me, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they came back next summer (though I’d be more surprised if SJC-TUL returned than if SJC-SAT returned). In general, cuts in cities like AUS, JAX, and SAT all seemed like routes that were geared more towar...

I would not read too much into that. CA has ~30 A330-200 ( which are used in the SJC route 3-2 times per week) and 14 787s. They only need 1 aircraft for the SJC flight. I’m not. It’s a possibility. We know the LHR route is doing ok, but is getting sporadic service due to the 787 engine issues. Any...
