Frontier's Daniel Shurz on Southwest's AirTran acquisition and how key Denver is to his airline

A Frontier Airlines statement about Southwest's bid to acquire AirTran didn't include any reference to Denver. But Daniel Shurz, Frontier's vice president of strategy and planning, stresses that the Mile High City's very much in the forefront of the carrier's plans. "Denver is 76, 77 percent of the Frontier network today," he says. "It's the most important part of this network, and the one we're most focused on making work."
