DFW is barely a market for WS. It does better than IAH (which has terrible loads) but nowhere near as well as Envoy which must be timed better for AA connections.

Sumer 2018 schedule, exact date tbd.

Expect 1 per day.

Mainline A320 service.

I would expect summer seasonal.

Overall 50% chance we see launch cone about in 2018.

I must be one of the few that flew Frontier out of YYC in about 2007. Recall it being decent service. Transfer in DEN on my way to Minnesota.
That Frontier went bankrupt of course, so not sure what the "new" version is like.

I don't like their chances much for survival after launch, but I see that you're saying they might not even launch at all. That more than confirms what I'm fearing...

Unless Indigo Partners has decided that running FlyToo to Denver for maintenance, or running Frontier to Calgary for maintenance makes a lot of sense.

Maintenance of the airplanes? Who here would be doing nightly B checks or more on an Airbus for planes to be rotated through here just for that purpose? That makes zero sense.

Much different than WestJet rotating jets through Ireland for type rating modifications?

The "who here" is the important part. I don't foresee AC or WS working on Frontier planes in their hangars overnight. If you know something about their operations that I don't, enlighten us.
