I remember vividly Frontier Airlines' (Jack the rabbit was on the tail) inaugural landing at this airport. It was a windy, overcast day but that didn't sour our spirits at all. Our two fire trucks were at the ready; waiting to form a water arch for the Airbus 319 to taxi through on their way to the gate.
More than 50 VIPs, media cameras, and CAK employees were there to welcome Jack, Paul Tate (Canton native and former Frontier Airlines CFO)...

Times are tough out there. You know what I mean, the economy, global warming, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the list goes on and on.

I was in Denver yesterday with Joyce visiting Frontier Airlines at the G-O. We had great meetings all day- sales, corporate communications, marketing, planning and scheduling. Frontier folks work exceeding hard to build a quality brand based on customer service. I particularly loved the DirectTV®! I was able to watch a new show called Saving Grace on TNT, on the way home and it sure helped pass the time. And even though the flight was 100% full, the cabin still felt roomy thanks...

Every month I wait, with a knot in my tummy, for the airlines to report their passenger boardings to us. The figures come in one-by-one for about a week. Sometimes, they are up sometimes they are down. This month, thankfully, more were up than we were down. Our margin of increase in May was very slim, just 177 more passengers than last year, but in this economy up is up! Read the press release.
At the AAAE National Conference in Philadelphia earlier this week,...
