Each Will Show World Series Games On Planes
Eager to show its pride for the hometown baseball team,
Denver-based Frontier Airlines announced it will show World Series
games onboard its planes. The Colorado Rockies face the Boston
Red Sox in the latest Fall Classic showdown.
The games will be broadcast onboard Frontier Airlines mainline
planes by DirecTV. Obtaining permission to show the games required
some fancy legal footwork, as the airline's contract with the
satellite television provider doesn't normally cover the Fox
"It has taken a lot of coordination and effort ... to make this
happen," Frontier spokesman Joe Hodas told The Associated Press.
"We're so appreciative that we'll be able to show the games to our
Frontier charges $5 for the satellite-TV service, which is
available on 60 Airbus planes.
Red Sox fans shouldn't feel let down, though. New England-based
JetBlue Airways (well, Queens, NY... but the Mets aren't in
the Series) will also show World Series games on its planes... and
that carrier doesn't charge for the service.
That could make for some animated conversations among
passengers. Frontier doesn't offer service from Denver to Boston --
it sends those fliers to partner AirTran Airways -- but JetBlue
does offer direct service between the two cities.
