Southwest Airlines today is pitching its takeover bid to stakeholders at Frontier Airlines, in advance of Thursday's auction for the bankrupt carrier between Southwest and Republic Airways. Southwest plans to utilize 80% of Frontier's fleet and maintain all existing routes from its Denver hub in addition to adding new cities not currently served from DIA. That would likely make Denver the busiest airport in Southwest's network, as well as adding regional aircraft and international flights to the Southwest mix.
