What physical assets does Frontier have?

This does not sound good. Will the firm buy the airline and parcel off some of its routes such as its international route authorites to another airline, leaving and unprofitable shell of a company?

Inflight entertainment systems, are they assets that can be resold?

Would united like a codeshare agreement and take the Airbuses in trade for United Express flying contracted by the investment firm out of Denver.

So sorry to all of the going through this at Frontier right now, and the Wall Street Journal is subscription so they are not letting you folks who need to watch your spending in to see who it may be.

Indigo Partners who has invested in Spirit Airlines before, is probably thinking they can unload the Airbuses through some of its contacts with other airlines they have had before.

Well I guess the private equity firms are gambling there is more money to be made by knocking off Frontier prior to the economy failing, rather than waiting to see who will fail more quickly Virgin America or Frontier.

This is another plausable rationale. An folks the economy is not doing well.
