ANC/FAI-DEN

F9's schedule is out through August of next year and they have axed DEN-FAI (oldish-news) and DEN-ANC (new news).

Count me in as really hoping AS brings back DEN-ANC as a result. With F9 gone, yields likely wouldn't be as bad.

Come on AS, you need somewhere to fly all these new planes!

Wow shocked.

Maybe AS will start ANC/FAI-SLC?

Airframes may be a bit thin this summer.

Honestly, I think this is the more likely scenario given the current state of affairs with DL and the AS mini-hub at SLC

ANC-DEN is a bigger local market than ANC-SLC though. But I'd be happy either way.

If it's a DL jab then I sense SLC-SIT forthcoming.

How about SIT-ATL

Slightly under the range of AS' longest route, ANC-KOA

Per the OAG thread, UA is bumping ANC-DEN up to 2x daily in the summer.

FAI-ORD is daily though.

As a sidenote, UA's summer schedule ex-ANC appears to be 2x daily DEN, 2x daily ORD, 1x daily IAH, and 1x daily SFO.

well, with UA's reliability lately, they might actually operate 4 of those 6 flights on any given day

I would love anything from DEN that doesn't require me to fly UA, or to DFW on AA.
