Tweets of the day:

@airportscouncil Biffle: We are looking to double the size of @FlyFrontier within the next 5 years – #JumpStart16.

@e_russell “We’re right at Spirit’s costs,” says @FlyFrontier chief Biffle. CASM ex-fuel was 5.86 cents in 2015. A long sought goal. #Jumpstart16.

@e_russell .@FlyFrontier carries few biz pax, says chief Biffle. Pax breaks down to 54% VFR and 37% on holiday, only 9% biz. #JumpStart16.

@e_russell It took @SouthwestAir ~20yrs (to the 1990s) for them to become a mainstream low-fare carrier, says F9 CEO Biffle. #JumpStart16.

@JustinMeyerKC “Our competitors may match our fares, and that’s cute, but we will still make money.” Frontier Airlines CEO Barry Biffle #Jumpstart16.
