Frontier to announce new routes in 6 states

From Frontier Airlines' Facebook page this morning:

"Next week we’ll announce new routes with destinations in six states - two of which are NEW states for us! So let’s have some fun with it. Click the “Mystery Miles” tab and guess the two new states we’ll be serving. If you guess correctly you'll receive 1,000 EarlyReturns miles. And one lucky correct-guesser will get 25,000 EarlyReturns miles! Make sure to sign up for our EarlyReturns mileage program before entering so you can get those miles. Sign up here: http://bit.ly/NXSCPo Contest ends 8/5."

I'd love to hear the word "Hawaii" as one of the two.

There aren't many options. The following are, according to the route map, states not currently served:

Idaho
Hawaii
Alabama
Mississippi
South Carolina
North Carolina
West Virginia
Maine
New Hampshire
Vermont
Massachusetts
Rhode Island
Connecticut
New Jersey
Delaware

I'm assuming that "new" means not ones that were cut in the past couple years, which would discount NJ, MA, CT (others?).

Hawaii would require significant work though, no? Both Flag Carrier status and ETOPS certification would be needed, similar to what Allegiant just had to go through.

Yes, it is highly improbable. Just dreamin'.

My guess is it'll be Idaho (Boise) and North Carolina (Charlotte).

I think they may return BOS again. It's whether if they reinstating to BOS service again. It will get some more tougher competitive against UA, B6, WN.

I was thinking BOI and CLT or RDU. PVD might make sense, especially as they pulled out of BOS recently.

CLT would be great. I had to fly US Air there last month.

Personally, I'd like to see a direct PVU to LAS route

CLT is a mystery to me. US obviously dominates and the fares are usually ridiculous. It would seem like low hanging fruit for a lower priced carrier.

I'd guess a bulk of these new routes will be headed either to MCO or be more Apple Vacations flying for the winter.

I always thought and still do that WN would do this route. WN has a couple of gates from Airtran and so I would expect them to use them to take on US on expensive routes.

DEN-AZA? Underwhelming. Also, why? It's only 32 miles away from PHX. At least PVU, where I fly from, is at least 50 miles from SLC...

Yes way! You can fly out from Phoenix/Gateway Airport. It's easier for you. You don't have drive to Sky Harbor anymore. Because it's too far away from there. That's why I lived in Desert Ridge. It was 44 miles from there.
