I am looking forward but it seems I can get cheaper flights to MCO from EWR or PHL. $69 one way tkt comes with pretty hefty return ticket.

I know where the airport is, I was being funny
I might give this service a go, I'm a big fan of small local airports.

Sadly, this probably means TTN will be getting TSA. Hopefully Streamline Air is able to keep a separate TSA-free operation like they currently have.

Brilliant move by Frontier.
They probably received a federal grant providing "Essential Air Service" as being the only carrier out of Trenton.
Also the state of NJ, city of Trenton, or the county Trenton is in probably coughed up additional cash as an "airline revenue guarantee" to make sure that Frontier is profitable even if Frontier can't sell enough airline seats.
So if this route doesn't do well, after however long either the Federal or State/City/County grants last, there's a definately possiblity that Frontier will pack their own bags and leave Trenton.
This is common in markets where an airline can't justfiy bleeding cash if after gov't subsidies are done, the route isn't a money maker.
Good luck to the folks in Trenton for this route lasting as long as possible!

I think I paid the same price from Allentown,pa to Orland,FL last year with Airtran.

As someone who regularly flies out of two smaller, "regional" airports, you're totally missing the point if you think flying out of a place like TTN is a bad deal because it costs a little more. I LIKE the shorter lines, being able to arrive an hour before my flight and still get on the plane on time, the 5 minute walk from my car to the terminal, shorter wait for bags, (generally) on-site rental cars where available, lack of crowds, etc. I'll pay MORE to fly out of MHT or PWM than go down to BOS.
Hell, one baggage claim experience at PHL should tell you all you need to know about why you'd choose TTN over PHL for a family trip down to Disney World. Go ahead and give it a shot.

Frontier is actually flying out of Allentown as well w/ similarly inexpensive flights. It's my go-to airport of choice, but sadly there aren't many direct flights. I hope the trend continues and they bring more direct flights.
