F9 big route announcements on 7/18

Lookout for big route announcements by tomorrow morning. They getting more new routes from MIA, CVG, or anywhere else.

Let the speculation begin.

F9 added new routes from MIA to CVG, DTW, CLE, SJU, PVD, and MKE, as well.

And looks like Frontier will pull out of FLL.

Yeah, I got completely screwed by these changes. They killed my RDU -> SFO Round Trip and unhelpfully offered a refund and a $100 voucher. Looks like they're leaving RDU

Wow 21 new routes out of DEN...bringing back all the old ones and some

http://www.denverpost.com/2017/07/18...international/

I don't love F9 but this is a great move for me

Also, side thought: where exactly is F9 going to get all the extra gate space needed for this at DEN???

Glad I waited until today as I was trying to find MI/OH to Miami for less than $300 around Christmas and New Year.

Right now, you can get CLE-MIA for less than $100 1 way around Christmas/New Year, much cheaper than DTW. Kayak isn't quick enough to update the new airfares available but I took the plunge quickly, knowing it may be limited and a flash sale.

Besides nonstop and competitive pricing, I really like their middle of the day flights when I can arrive and get up at humane hours in MIA. AA and DL tend to time their flights for other connections so it's either early in the morning or evening.

p.s. low fare gone out of CLE for Xmas and NY but other dates are still incredibly cheap at $44.

Hugely disappointing they are not re-entering MDT. Frontier even went on record to say their MDT-DEN and MDT-MCO flights were profitable, with DEN getting an A320 some days. MDT is one of the largest markets without nonstop service to MCO.

Well, ATL-SJU three times a week, though a number of ATL routes will drop off seasonally soon.

Looks like they clearly want to re-hub DEN, but with sparse schedules to a number of cities you'll have people facing overnight layovers in DEN if they want to connect. Could lead to a noticeable increase in the number of people sleeping at the airport.

I agree with Rusty. I think it's great that they are expanding their flights in and out of DEN, but their connection times in that airport always seem to be really long.

One good thing, with the train to downtown Denver now, if you have a 6 hour layover you can always head into town and do some stuff there isntead of just waiting at the airport.

I'm interested in the Austin - Columbus route...all I can find is it will start in October and should be for sale "by September". Anyone know if there is more detail on the route schedule (daily? weekly?) and how to find out as soon as they go on sale?

Finally...a nonstop DEN-Upstate NY (Buffalo) (WN to ALB doesn't count...I won't fly them). Maybe UA will watch this route and compete at some point.

Not holding my breath.
