Frontier Airlines removing 17 aircraft in late & 2012/2013

3 A318

2 A319

12 E-190

Whats the future for these planes?

If the Airbusses are high cycle (approaching the 25,000 cycle lower wing skin AD), they’ll probably go to scrap. Some FFT Airbusses already have.

It was always planned to retire the A318’s.

The E-190’s will definitely find a home somewhere (probably not in the US).

As F9 transitions to an ULCC model, the A319 and A320 are the best aircraft for them to use - costs on the E190 are too high.

Don’t know about the 319 / 320 but 10 of the E-190s are returning to USAirways.
