Big Surprise right?


DENVER, June 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/

-- Frontier Airlines Holdings, Inc. (Pink Sheets: FRNTQ - News) today announced its wholly owned subsidiary Frontier Airlines, Inc., has reached a codeshare agreement with Milwaukee-based Midwest Airlines. The agreement will allow customers of both airlines to travel to more destinations while enjoying a seamless ticketing and customer service experience.

The agreement, which is scheduled to begin by late summer, will allow Frontier Airlines to sell tickets under a Frontier code and expand their networks to additional destinations currently served by Midwest. Frontier customers will now be able to reach more cities by connecting on Midwest through its Milwaukee hub. Midwest customers will also see an expanded network by connecting on Frontier and Lynx Aviation flights in Denver.
"This partnership allows us to broaden our network and provide even more destinations to our loyal customers," said Frontier Vice President for Strategy and Planning Daniel Shurz. "We also look forward to showcasing our airlines to many new customers who may be flying Frontier and Lynx for the first time by connecting from Midwest. We believe the synergy between our two airlines will serve the traveling public well."
"Under the codeshare, customers of both airlines will benefit from a wider choice of travel destinations and additional flight options and connection possibilities," explained Gregory D. Aretakis, vice president of Planning and Revenue Management for Midwest. "They will also have the convenience of booking their entire flight on a single ticket."

Under the terms of this agreement, both airlines' customers will also be able to participate in each other's respective frequent flyer programs - Frontier's EarlyReturns program and Midwest's Midwest Miles program, to earn miles and redeem them for free tickets. More details of the program, along with specific cities that will be available for this codeshare, will be announced at a later date.

I can't wait to eat a Frontier cookie. Mmm. Even better than a living wage for the pilots.

History repeating itself. What does the Frontier scope clause say about "code-shares"? Could Midwest be doing to Frontier what Republic did to itself? God, I hope not!

You know what else is spanish? LaQuinta, translated means "NEXT TO DENNY'S"

In my experience they've always been next to a Denny's restaurantA.
