Iíve only been here about a year and when CAís ask me what I think of Frontier, I say the same thing, ďIíve never been someplace where the leadership team and executive staff seem so disinterested in creating a successful business.Ē

At the head of it all is Mr. Biffle. I still struggle to understand how the board of directors can find his performance even remotely acceptable. Just put his hand on the rip cord and have him deploy the golden parachute already. Get him gone and replace him with someone that actually wants to run an airline. Either that or put a for sale sign out in front of corporate HQ.
Hell, I would take his spot... If he ever wants to leave, just let me know and I can jump in and pull the rip cord

In regards to the recruitment page.... of course it was all naysayers. But the official Frontier page just put out a statement about how it was undergoing maintenance and will be back up shortly.

I interviewed yesterday and didnít get any feeling of a slow down in hiring. The HR person after the day said she was overloaded with interviews, Indocs, etc. I didnít get the impression she saw a slow down anytime soon. I overheard a couple guys at the next table talking engine issues, and fairly minor impacts to deliveries in the future. No plans to defer deliveries, and need to keep training pilots. Class dates for direct FOs were in a few months and the cadet program were in early 2024. I got an offer so was pretty pumped.

My understanding is that PW has fixed the engine issues in the new planes and it only affects the ones that are a few years old. I just canít find the article about that.

Frontier is not affected by the engine issues other than the delays they have caused receiving new aircraft from the factory. However, the 9 aircraft delivery delay we have currently have from Airbus is rolling. We were 5 aircraft short in 2022 that has extended to 9 in 2023. According to Barry on, I believe, the Q1 2023 investor call that delay remains unchanged and we will be 6 months behind on the delivery schedule until Airbus can begin to catch back up.

So looking at the planned growth chart on FFTpilots.com was the plan but you can can subtract currently 9 per year beginning in 2024 to reflect the current delay. 2023 has been accounted for already.
