STEVE INSKEEP, Host:
NPR's Jeff Brady explains.
JEFF BRADY: Airline analyst Mike Boyd says Republic's strategy for Frontier is partly to blame.
MIKE BOYD: They have an operation in Denver and they have an operation in Milwaukee, and they're trying to fly flights out of Kansas City and out of Omaha, and I think it's kind of frittered away their strength.
BRADY: Boyd says Frontier's strength is its association with Denver and the brand loyalty the airline has with flyers here. Boyd says Frontier is still a well-run airline; it just needs to return to its Mile High roots.
BOYD: So with a little more capital, there's no question they can survive.
