    I am still at the airport
    Summary
    We've been delayed for about 24 hours now. ANd there is nothing Frontier is doing.
    Full Fright
    I am a medical student in Omaha and took a quick trip out to Durango with friends. The airplane broke down before the scheduled departure, the mechanic was not available, I missed my connection in Denver and have been here for the last 24-27 hours. Apparently Frontier does not work with other airlines - or other airlines don't work with Frontier. The two men at the gate where I was on standby were less than courteous, the ladies at the customer desk were nice but unhelpful. They have no way of c..

    Illegal text to husband to tell him I love him in case we crash
    Summary
    Lies lies and the liars who tell them, Merry Christmas.
    Full Fright
    This was a Christmas Day flight from Denver to Cedar Rapids (visiting my father, who died a week later).
    Flight seems normal (though yes, a typical cramped Frontier flight, complete with cranky flight attendants, Weather report said light drizzle in Cedar Rapids but it was warm out.  Plane descends to make a landing and things don't sound quite right (I have flown hundreds of times and know the sounds that go with replying landing gear, etc.).  Suddenly they are going back up. &..

    12/18 Flt 283, St. Louis to Denver, my daughter flying home from college. Frontier reports flight delayed by hours, then suddenly on time, forcing her to rush to airport in panic, only to learn that flight is actually delayed by another 8 hours.

    Frontier is horrible!
    Summary
    Frontier Airlines caused us to miss our connecting flight and refused to do anything about it. They didn't even offer us an apology.
    Full Fright
    Arranged a round-trip flight from Chicago to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. We arrived back to Chicago at 6:00 and had a connecting flight to make at 9:00 through Spirit. We were unable to deboard the plane until 7:20 due to an unspecified problem at the gate. They moved the plane to a different gate and we ran through the first customs to get our checked bags. Somehow there was an  issue with Frontier's luggage crew and they couldn't get anyone's luggag..

    made my 2 year old sit alone
    Summary
    we booked seats on frontier 3 in a row for my husband, 2 year old son and i. Frontier screwed up the boarding passes and put my 2 year old in a row with strangers, my husband in another row and me in a 3rd row. although passengers were willing to switch the pilot/stewardesses were not willing to let us make changes because they were in a rush to leave. I kid you not. (excuse the pun) They are out of their minds.
    Full Fright
    I flew from Trenton to MSP on FrontierAirlines. When booking my flight I made sure to choose three seats in a row one for my husband, one for myself and one for my 2 year old son. when they printed out the boarding passes they separated all 3 of us and put my 2 year old son in a row by himself. needless to say all the neighboring passengers were more than willing to switch seats (no one wanted to sit next to a screaming 2 year old) but the stewardesses were so unbelievably obnoxious they were ye..

    Their website has issues and people get delayed
    Summary
    If you haven't printed out your boarding pass, make sure you have a very long time before your flight to do it.
    Full Fright
    I arrive with more than 40 minutes to spare for my flight from Trenton to Raleigh. Due to a website issue I was unable to print out a proper boarding pass. Upon arrival the kiosk would not allow me to print my pass as it was under the 45 minute deadline, a deadline that I have never encountered in all my years of flying. The Frontier reps at the counter were of no help and were quite hostile to my (and the 7 other passengers) complaints. They are essentially running a racket. Trenton airport is ..

    There's noone at Frontier's counter
    Summary
    I had checked in online and printed boarding passes and coupons for my luggage. I arrived at the Madison WI airport 40 minutes prior to my flight. Madison is a small airport and usually does not take much time to check luggage and get to the gate. The Frontier desk was closed.
    Full Fright
    There was a sign on the counter stating someone would return after the flight left. We did not make our flight to Seattle. I think it would be most helpful if Frontier stated on their website that the gates close 45 minutes prior to take off and that you will not be able to board your plane. I paid $75 to get a flight out a day later. I asked if I could travel to a nearby airport and take their flight later in the day to Seattle and I was told this was not an option unless I wanted to pay full f..

    Summary
    We had booked with Frontier for a family vacation to Yellowstone National Park for our family of 5. The flights were supposed to go from Detroit to Denver to Bozeman, MT and vice versa. This story is hard to believe but true. We had both our outbound and return flights delayed or cancelled, luggage lost and kids diagnosed with dehydration after being in airport for over 24 hours. At Frontier's suggestion we were forced to book with another airline to get home from Bozeman MT or stay 4 more da..

    On Monday July 7th, we had our outbound flight 625 from Detroit to Denver delayed due to mechanical problems and ended up being at 4 airports for over 24 hours straight because of missed connecting flights.

    Spokane to Denver, 18 June. Stormy weather in Denver prevented our flight from landing 3 times so we flew to Colorado Springs to refuel. We had to stay on the plane and only 1 of the 3 lavatories was operational - there was a line of about 30 people waiting to use it. An hour later I was close to the lav and had to sit down again for take-off. We got to Denver 2.5 hours late and my connecting flight to Little Rock had already left. After standing in a long line I found out their next flight to L..

    DFW-DEN on 6/14/2014. Arrived at airport at 4.40am to find out that our 6.10am flight was cancelled due to not having a flight crew. There was no notification of such a cancellation, even when we arrived at the airport the monitors still said 'On Time'. There were over 100 people in line at the ticketing counter and only 2 agents at the desk. Hold time on the phone was over 30 mins. Frontier could not get us out that day and we had to be rescheduled for the next day. When I discussed the no noti..

    It definitely costs more to fly with Frontier
    Summary
    I thought flying with Frontier would be a lot less than on other airlines. Boy, I was so wrong. By the time you add up all the fees, then throw in the delay, it costs more to fly Frontier. Never again!
    Full Fright
    The flight was several hours late leaving, resulting in missing events in L A. & costing much more for the car. Persons I was meeting were forced to rent a hotel room near the airport because we were so late. Gates were switched 3 times, the plane was broken then fixed, then broken again. Another plane was brought in (another delay). I had paid for an "upgrade" (upgrade from steerage to what?). The upgraded seat was the size of the smallest seat on competitors. Luggage fees are ridiculous and ad..

    Summary
    With our flight cancelled, we have to find our own way to fly to a city near Wilmington.
    Full Fright
    They cancelled our flight from Orlando to Wilmington at the last minute saying the plane did not ever leave Denver. They said maybe they could get us on a flight in 3 days! They would not help even help us find another airline to fly. They just gave us a business card with a 1-800-432-1359 number on it. This had a 67 minute wait time. We had to pay top dollar at US Air to get to a city close to Wilmington.

    I would like to warn travelers to be wary of low fares promoted by Frontier Airlines. My wife and I took a trip to Nashville for a writers' conference earlier this week. We planned to return Thursday on a Frontier flight out of Nashville to Portland via Denver. We arrived at the airport for this flight, learned it was canceled, and there was no one at the counter. The management sent out one young woman to confront stranded passengers. She said the computers were down, no one was available and g..

    Be advised that you must reach counter/representative 45minutes before departure. Something Southwest, Delta, and others don't do. Attendant was working with other customers for awhile (by herself) and I missed the 45minute window. Or was it professional 'mis-direction;' with both the flight being oversold and their 'contract' employees understaffed so they had to leave the counter to attend to Gate duties?

    This flight actually left early. 15 passenger were rebooked to other flights at 8am and 8pm the next day (some on standby for already overbooked flights) We spent the night on thefloor of the airport because the voucher for the discounted hotel would only be helpful IF there were shuttles running to get us there. There were not and we never got on the 8am flight but our luggage did! We were rerouted to Seattle on Alaska Airlines (they were wonderful!!) and back down to SNA by 6pm that next day. ..

    First, both of my flights were delayed without notice from the airline of such delays. Therefore, I missed out on an entire day of my trip to see a loved one. I dealt with very rude people both days. The first day, I called to try and get a faster flight out of St. Louis and spoke to Kevin a floor supervisor both days I believe and he was quick to cut me off, not offer empathy, and simply cut down any hopes of making my situation better. I finally arrived in Los Angeles late last night (almos..

NOTABLE FRIGHTS
 The sexism and harassment was visceral and cruel by male agents. 

Happy

 They don't get anything right. 

Jason

 Unacceptable...I will stick with Southwest Airlines from now on, and tell anyone else to do the same. the few bucks saved wasn't worth the inconvenience. 

Julius Caesar C

 I fly a fair amount (20+ times per year) and have been on almost all major US carriers, this one takes the cake as the worst! 

JK Roland

 Traveling Frontier has been one of the worst experiences I have ever had. Rude, disrespectful and completely unhelpful. I would highly discourage traveling with them
