DENVER ” Of the 456 people Frontier Airlines plans to lay off this fall, the majority are pilots and flight attendants.

Colorado Department of Labor and Employment spokesman Bill Thoennes said Tuesday that Frontier told the state the layoffs include 152 first officers, 169 flight attendants, 50 customer service agents and 35 mechanics.

The list also includes various other positions including dispatcher, inspector and aircraft cabin cleaners.

Denver-based Frontier had said in June that it planned to cut flights, planes and employees as it deals with soaring fuel costs and works through a bankruptcy court filing.
