    Frontier airlines?

    Anyone have any experience with Frontier? I have to fly AGAIN and was told to try them because theyíre super cheap.
    Iíve tried a few times today to get on their website but havenít been able to get past entering my destination. I called and was on the phone with a woman who seemed to not know how to look up a flight... I gave up after 30 minutes out of frustration.
    Iíll try again in the morning before I book with a higher priced airline. Just trying to save money after flying way more than Iíd like and purchasing flights for family members in the last few weeks.

    Reviews aren't very good for them on Trip Advisor...

    Didn't they start out as a charter for the .gov?

    I would think your phone experience with them would tell all you needed to know.

    The Frontier of today has evolved from the Frontier of 15 years ago.

    Its a fine airline for an ultra low cost carrier, I have a few friends that fly there, but like most things you get what you pay for.

    Iíd not necessarily be opposed to a direct flight but I would not choose a two-leg flight.

    From my understanding frontier is like Allegiant... cheap but have to pay for everything.


    i fly Allegiant down to Florida. When I fly solo, I can get a round trip for less then a couple Hundo (no check bags, sit in the middle, just a backpack).

    when I fly with my family and we ďneedĒto sit together... and need to bring three checked bags, all the fees add up, but Iím paying for the direct flight. Still is normally cheaper than southwest

    unlike most people in this country I donít mind being uncomfortable and not being waited on hand and foot

    The weak link for airlines like Frontier is they have no agreements with other airlines. If your aircraft suffers a mechanical, you're waiting for it to be fixed or for another plane from the same airline to get there and Frontier lacks the fleet size to have much in the way of online spares to ferry in. Personally, I wouldn't fly them at all. They tend to run a long MEL in the interests of keeping planes in the air at all costs (this is technically legal but leaves a lot of links available to forge a disaster chain). But even if I was less picky, I wouldn't fly them if arrival time was crucial such as to an event like a wedding or reunion. Their seats also have some of the smallest pitch in the industry, 28.5 inches I believe (SW is 31)

    We flew them on our last journey to Florida. One way both ways non-stop. Convenient and pretty much on time. But the fees. Wow. If you are on a tight budget these need to be known. It did not set us back but the 2 students in line behind us had to use lunch money.
    I would fly them again buy they do need to tell you up front about the baggage and other fee's.

    But the seats didnít look very comfortable.

    Frontier seats

    They are a very slim line seat made out of molded plastic, so they donít have a lot of give. Nor do they recline.


    From:https://onemileatatime.com/frontier-airlines-review/ which might give some insight into how they operate
