Frontier Airlines Updates?

Sun May 12, 2019 1:25 am

I have not seen much posted on Frontier for a bit. Has Frontier released any numbers or profits? Also, is there any word on if they are getting any new planes, or ordered any? What's their goal in fleet size in the next few years? Any rumors like maybe the Airbus 220? And finally, has Frontier considered operating out of Everett Washington?

Frontier has 176 planes on order right now. How many more do you think they need?

PAE is maxed out with what AS and UA are currently offering as AS took the slots that WN would have used and there's only 2 gates.

And yes they have planes on order, over 150 320/321NEO's but I believe they are slowing those down and the 319CEO's are going to AA.

I'm curious to as when they will release the 'winter' routes...they have a ton of ghost routes showing right now.

The latest with Frontier is the same. Operationally they're a frickin disgrace. Too many planes out of service with a schedule that provides no slack. And an ownership who doesn't give a crap about ops. Amazing how Spirit has completely lapped them in last few years. Barry & Bill deserve congrats - they've taken their Spirit to Frontier.

I think you've mostly named the rumors yourself. There is always the standard RIC flights rumor, and the Spirit merger rumor.

F9 adding service to RIC will probably happen in the near future as RIC is currently the largest market in the contiguous U.S. that doesn't already have nonstop service to DEN on any LCC's. F9 also already serves DEN nonstop from a few East Coast markets that are smaller than RIC.
