HEBRON, Ky. -- A rash of flight delays and some cancelations Monday morning at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport were all weather related, not part of a rumored walk-off, according to a Frontier Airlines spokesman.
"Frontier is focused on getting crews back in place," said Jim Faulkner, Frontier Airlines spokesman. "They're working hard today."
Faulkner said severe winter weather has displaced and delayed crews around the country.
However, Capt. Brian Ketchum, the chairman of the Frontier pilots' union, said the "meltdown by Frontier Airlines is due to the same executive mismanagement and misplaced focus on cost-cutting that has placed Frontier near the very bottom of the industry in operational performance and customer satisfaction."
"Leaving passengers and even their own cockpit and cabin crews stranded for hours without information is outrageous - even more so when this quarter was one of the airline's most profitable ever financially," Ketchum said.
Either way, passengers were stuck with long wait times and, for some, canceled flights.
