Frontier Airlines: “Our financial performance in July and over the past nine months was possible because of our continuous focus on achieving the lowest cost structure in the industry, developing alternative revenue streams through our branded AirFairs program as well as the introduction of ancillary revenues and our constant attention to quality customer service. These results attracted two major investors to vie for ownership of our company and bring us out of bankruptcy,” Sean Menke, President and CEO. Source: Frontier Airlines, 27-Aug-2009.
