Frontier thinks all-you-can-fly is best for its empty seats
If you need the latest trends at U.S. ULCCs, don't miss today's post, which includes news from Frontier, Spirit and Sun Country.
Welcome to the new readers who joined after hearing me on Skift’s Airline Weekly Lounge podcast with Jay Shabat. Jay is a former colleague and one of the best analysts around. While today's post is behind the paywall, I have temporarily added free trial subscriptions. You can unlock today’s post and have the next seven days to explore the archives and read future editions without hitting the paywall.
Today's newsletter is the final installment covering the J.P. Morgan Industrials conference, and it’s all about the ULCCs. You'll learn about the unique reason Frontier started an all-you-can-fly subscription pass, the economics behind Spirit's Big Front Seat, and the rationale behind some of Sun Country's summer routes, including its Minneapolis-to-Charlotte route. This follows two earlier stories from the conference — one on premium U.S. carriers, and the other on America’s LCCs.
Also, please read to the end to participate in a very important poll for my personal life.
