I would say the one that hires you, all things being equal F9 only because I don't think we have as many pilots a Spirit, therefore you may still be able to get onto top %50 of the seniority here, where as at Spirit I keep hearing that they have surpassed that number, so you will be a FO for a long time.

Thanks. So are people leaving for the legacies and does Frontier have a plan for more growth?
I can't find any info on future anticipated aircraft deliveries.

It's a 10+ month wait to hold it, so that's something to consider.

The vsa's are run several months in advance. So a January hire that can't hold it on this vsa will have waited 8 months already. They're not running classes for (2 months was it?) so there's your 10 months.

There's been next to no info on the vegas situation, so that can't really be accounted for.

From 60-some airplanes to 120-some airplanes in 4-5 years.

Everybody PLANS on growing. But, "all the best laid plans of mice and men..."

If I were a betting man I'd say that once this current VSA closes we'll see the LAS VSA right behind it. That would allow the company to contractually operate LAS based crews in August/September.

My guess is F9 wants to wait and see if the NEO deliveries return to schedule. If they pick back up probably a las base in late summer or early fall. If they continue to trickle in it will most likely be closer to the end of the year.

Have any of our planes been delayed? As far as I was concerned the leap neos were on schedule.
