    I am still at the airport
    Summary
    We've been delayed for about 24 hours now. ANd there is nothing Frontier is doing.

    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..

    Frontier is horrible!

    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..

    My wife and I booked a flight with Expedia from O'Hare International Airport to Cancun Mexico on 8/11/14 for an 8 am flight. The flight was a Funjet flight operated by Frontier Airlines. We arrived at ORD at 630am as per our itinerary's directions. When we got to the ticket counter at 650, we were told that we wouldn't be able to check in due to our late arrival and because the counters were closed. We didn't have any carry on luggage and we attempted to check in the night before but were unable..

    Address your problems Frontier and you have to realize that there are a lot!
    Summary
    I flew yesterday from Trenton to Ft. Lauderdale. Was very excited to be flying from Trenton - much more convenient than going to Newark or Philadelphia. Check in was fine - security easy and waiting area adequate. The problem came when the flight was delayed for 9 hours - yes 9 hours.
    Full Fright
    I spent the entire day and evening at the airport. the problem is two-fold - why I am not likely to fly Frontier again: 1) The communication throughout the ordeal was worse than awful - it is pretty clear that they knew early on that this was going to be a horrific wait. They kept stringing us along - many of us could have gone home for the day, but instead we were there not knowing what was going on. 2) Second issue - staff are incredibly rude. Staff upstairs at check in were great, but those i..

    We were left to find a solution to our problems brought about by Frontier's ridiculous policies
    Summary
    I arrived at the Sioux City airport an hour before my flight. It's a very small airport with just a few flights and a few gates going at one time. 30 minutes prior to my flight, the man at the ticket counter announced they were closing the check-in desk and no one else would be able to print boarding passes or check luggage.
    Full Fright
    I had checked-in previously from home and just needed a boarding pass printed. Frontier did not have a single self- service kiosk at the airport so I wouldn't have to wait in line with people who needed to check baggage. Myself and about 12 other people had been in line for 30 minutes but were turned away from our flight because they closed the desk. The next option they presented was rebooking in Omaha which is a 90 minute drive without offering a complimentary rebooking or even a discounted ti..

    Summary
    Flying to Denver from Seattle, and back, Frontier failed to get me on either flight.
    Full Fright
    In Seattle, the check-in desk was empty at 6pm Saturday with a sign that it would reopen 10 hours later at 4am. The automated machines were not giving boarding passes and I along with other passengers were stranded, unable to reach our flight. On the return trip in Denver, recent changes in timing cost me my flight. At the start, the desk representative wasn't aware that my boarding pass could be printed for me after I'd checked in online. Unlike all other airlines the doors are closed early, an..

    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.

    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..

    Awful Customer Service
    Summary
    I am writing again regarding the experience my children and I had on 6/14/14. I originally emailed on 6/17/14 and again on 6/19/14. I also called and was routed to voicemail. I cannot understand how a company does not respond to paying customer within a few days. I rarely feel the need to write a letter to convey my dissatisfaction but it has been one thing after another with Frontier since 6/14/14.

    they didnt help us get another flight
    Summary
    We will not fly with Frontier again. After having paid for tickets for our trip to Costa Rica months in advance, we were informed at the gate that our flight was delayed, but the check in agent said that we should still be able to make our connecting flight through Denver. But that was a big lie.
    Full Fright
    we check our bags ($50 for 2) and go through security. Upon arrival at the gate, we were told that we would arrive in Denver at 11:55 p.m., which was the departure time for our connecting flight to Costa Rica. We asked if they would be able to hold the plan for 10 minutes so that we and the 3-4 other passengers who were in the same situation could make the flight. The gate agent said that she had called the staff in Denver and they refused to hold the flight as it would further increase delays. ..

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.

    I was so sick when the flight reached our destination
    Summary
    I would like to complain about a terrible flight experience I had on Saturday, 4/12. I was scheduled to fly out of Los Cabos at 7:25pm on 4/12 and the flight was eventually cancelled and a new flight was set up for 4/13 at 12:35pm. There was little to no communication about what was going on with the 7:25pm flight.
    Full Fright
    The announcements were given in an extremely heavy Spanish accent that most could not understand. What I could glean was there was some sort of "maintenance issue." Finally, at 10pm we were told that the flight was cancelled and rescheduled and Apple travel company would be busing us to a hotel and arranging for our accommodation. I actually thought it was nice of them to cover the accommodation, but what I did not like was the lack of communication, the long delay in relaying what was going on ..

 Cheaper isn't always better.

 Depending on which rules they choose to enforce, you can never be assured that you will be granted access to their boarding process.

 I have never had a more infuriating, more frustrating, or more demoralizing experience traveling in my life!

 Never again. Rude stewardesses, ignorant pilots, and nothing's free. The price isn't cheap enough for this.
