    Ground delay on a plane full of angry bikers

    Gate wasn't open upon arrival and I was stuck on the tarmac in a plane full of angry bikers and drunk millenials.

    I took a one way Frontier flight from Denver to Miami a couple weeks ago to help my girlfriend drive back to Denver with her belongings so we could start our new life together. I can say now that everything is going wonderfully, but it had an inauspicious start to say the least.

    It became apparent at the beginning of this flight that we had a pretty unusual passenger list, at least half of the passengers were clearly members of a motorcycle club. I could tell by the copious amount..

    Flew round trip from Ft Myers to Denver 12/12. Flight out was no problem. Return flight - flight listed as on time on the screens, but we boarded over 30 minutes late. No announcement made that explained when we would be boarding, the reason for the delay, or any kind of apology or assurance. Asked to check our carryon bags at the gate, which was not a problem except that my companion was not given the receipt from her bag check. The agent said she would be right back with the tag, never returne..

    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.

    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.

    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..

    Pushed me to the edge!
    Summary
    In over 30 years of flying, I have never encountered such rude and inhumane service and after reading the reviews it is of NO surprise my first complaint was not responded to or the fact the FA aggressively and physically approached me as I left the plane - it would appear from the HUNDREDS of similar complaints this behavior is not only ignored but encouraged.

    My first flight left Fort Lauderdale for Trenton NJ/Mercer County. This airline just started flying there and it's convenient for neighboring Bucks County residents who prefer this short ride over the congestion and busy airport in Philly. Take the drive - it's not worth the inhumane treatment you will endure on this airline. The flight was delayed and then we sat on the runway for 30 min. Almost an hour after take off with ZERO turbulence, the seat belt sign was still on and many people were..

    Summary
    I booked a flight for my sister to visit us - flying from Oklahoma City to Portland, Oregon on June 20, 2014. I booked with one carry-on bag and was charged $25. After speaking with my sister, she indicated that she preferred to check 2 bags. I phoned Frontier but got a message that due to heavy volume my wait would be 36 minutes. So while waiting, I sent an email with my request. I got a reply saying that due to heavier volume they would get to me as soon as possible. That was on May 30. Today ..

    I flew Frontier for the first and only time yesterday. My scheduled 5:40pm flight from TTN to CVG did not leave until 9:44pm. I had signed up for alerts in case of a delay and was not notified until i arrived at the airport. The counter staff were extremely rude and uninformative, offered no explanation except " I think there was no air traffic controller at one of the stops".

    Summary
    My husband purchased a ticket from Frontier for our daughter to fly from Nashville, TN to Denver, CO to travel on May 24, 2014. Our daughter was in line to check her and baggage (fees already paid) 1 hour and 15 min prior to departure. But she still went through all the trouble and didn't get her baggage on time.

    She was in no way the last person in line. There was ONLY one female employee for both baggage and person church in. When she got to the counter she was told that her luggage could not go on her flight as it was late. She was told to get on the plane and her luggage would go on the next flight. She is 19 and is going as a volunteer to work at Frontier Young Life Camp. She did as she was told and flew to Denver.

    Frontier airlines in Phoenix is horrible. I booked a flight with them to Denver because it was the cheapest, but I did not know it would entail an 8 hour delay and ZERO notification of it until the scheduled time to take off.

    Not competitive
    Summary
    I was 45 minutes early to my flight from DEN to SAN and because the plane arrived earlier than scheduled, I get screwed because they can leave early. Lady at the desk was unaccommodating and particularly callous to my situation. I will never fly with them ever again.
    Full Fright
    The flight was boarding 45 minutes before the scheduled departure, so I was not allowed on due to an early boarding. Great for people who showed up early, bad for people who showed up at the cut off limit. The best she could do for me is get me on a flight 2 DAYS later, and acted like she was doing me a service. Even if the plane is able to be boarded early, it should NEVER leave before the scheduled departure time. Not only was I not refunded but I had to purchase an emergency ticket with Un..

    Frontier Airlines is horrible. I am not one to write reviews but I have had a series of terrible experiences. Flying out of Indianapolis they are severely understaffed. Since the airline does not participate in digital boarding passes, I arrived over an hour early prior to boarding so I could do so, and get through security. The self check in computers were down and I was unable to print my pass, along with several others. We all waited in line listening to an irate customer rant about nothing..

    My wife and I have flown Frontier as a preference for years. Our latest trip we booked was handled very poorly and we will not use them again.

    Frontier Airlines-Bad Customer Service in Orlando
    Summary
    After checking in online and paying for 3 checked bags, they wouldn't include our checked bags on the flight. They told us to either pay $300 for change flight or get on the flight and just leave the baggage behind. I had to pay $100 to MAYBE get on a standby flight with the two remaining bag after they agreed to get my husband and my grandson on the flight with one bag. TERRIBLE customer service!

    Things do get to a point where quality trumps cost.

    There are a lot of things that makes me want to fly in another airline. Frontier doesn't honor reserved seats booked from a third party, they put us on opposite ends of the plane. Our luggage got to another destination because of the wrong tag. Everything had extra cost. And they don't have enough water for everyone.

    I think this airline is the current winner in the race to the bottom of US airline carriers. We booked this flight as part of a round trip on Travelocity. The first leg was on another airline that we frequently use, and was great, as always. Had only flew Frontier once before. First surprise, reserved seats not honored, my wife and I were given middle seats at opposite ends of the aircraft. Told that they don't honor seat reservations from any third party. Can't get $20/apiece luggage tags ..

 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
