William Franke, Spirits chairman and managing partner of Indigo Partners, a private equity firm that focuses on airlines, is negotiating to acquire Frontier Airlines from Republic Airways Holdings ( RJET ) and turn it into the same type of operation he pioneered at Spirit, Dow Jones reported this week. Indigo will sell its 16 percent stake in Spirit, and Franke and another Indigo partner, John Wilson, will resign from Spirits board next month.
