Statement from the Air Line Pilots Association on Operational Disruptions at Denver International Airport

“The operational challenges Frontier Airlines is experiencing today are not due to a pilot ‘sickout’ or any other concerted action by the pilot group. We believe this meltdown is due to the same executive mismanagement and misplaced focus on cost-cutting that has placed Frontier at the very bottom of the industry in operational performance and customer satisfaction.”

Founded in 1931, ALPA is the largest airline pilot union in the world and represents over 54,000 pilots at 31 U.S. and Canadian airlines. Visit the ALPA website at or follow us on Twitter @WeAreALPA.
