    Never again!

    Our round trip flight with Frontier made us decide not to fly with them again. Flight was delayed but it was listed on screen as ON TIME, incompetence of staff caused us additional delays, no acknowledgement from FAs or the pilot during turbulence...

    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..

    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. &..

    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..

    Review from Paradise, Nevada
    Summary
    This is the worst service I have ever received flying.The flight was delayed over four hours and when asked for any type of compensation including sitting with the rest of my party they refused and sent me back to waiting for the plane to arrive.
    Full Fright
    When the plane finally did arrive they said that their systems were about to time out so they didn't have time to properly clean the plane and rushed everyone on back to front instead of doing zones or taking into account different loading ways. After finally arriving it took over an hour and a half to receive baggage because things that should have been placed with larger luggage and not put on the ramp with the rest of then stopped it completely. The men had to crawl through the luggage cla..

    I am cancelling ALL my pre-booked flights with Frontier!
    Summary
    I tried to fly from MPLA to Denver on 10 August 2014. The flight was delayed by four hours. Even though there were other Frontier flights leaving between the original departure time and the new departure time, staff refused to accommodate any customers in any way. They would not put us on standby. They refuse to help us with a new flight.
    Full Fright
    We got to the MPLS airport two hours early. There was no security wait. Unfortunately, the Frontier ticket staff wasn't there. I stood in front of an empty counter for 45 minutes. When the staff finally arrived, the security line had 45 minutes wait. I didn't know that my flight was delayed. There were zero announcements. After waiting for 45 minutes waiting to talk to the people at the gate ticket counter, I asked the lady, who identified herself as Candy, she didn't have a name tag, said that ..

    We used over 100k miles to fly my husband and me (plus our toddler under 2) on a last minute flight from Denver to San Diego for an immediate family member's funeral. We arrived at the airport and were told the flight had been downgraded and our seats could not be assigned and we needed to talk to the agent at the gate. We got to the gate and were told to wait off to the side. We waited off to the side, as requested, and tried not to be one of those passengers that got heated and be patient unti..

    Frontier ruined every little bit of our plans!
    Summary
    I filed an official complaint with Frontier concerning my one and only trip with them which, two weeks out, they still haven't replied to. So here's my complaint letter that I sent to them so maybe I can save another person the frustration of dealing with these people.

    You, Frontier, ruined my vacation home with your irresponsible handling of mine and my fiancee's suitcase. On Friday July 25th at approximately 4:20 PM my fiancee and I arrived at the ticket counter to get our boarding passes. Starting with the fact that the woman working the counter had a snarky attitude which I didn't care for, I handed our luggage over with a $25 luggage fee. She asked if our bag was going to St. Louis, to which we replied yes, and then put a sticker on it with the location c..

    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..

    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..

    I booked another flight for my husband and this time the pop-up screen was much more clear on what I was purchasing-carry on and not checked luggage. I called and had a total of an hour wait just to talk to anyone!

    Summary
    I never used Frontier before, so I took a gamble for a weekend trip. I guess I shouldn't have made the risk.
    Full Fright
    My flight was scheduled to leave at 3.13pm. I was not told of any delay until I was at airport with bags in hand. Personnel were more concerned about the size of bags rather than telling us of a delay. We were delayed to the aircraft flying to Tampa first and coming back to Trenton. We finally got on board at 5.30 for a 5.50 departure and then were delayed as a passenger was injured trying to get onto plane. After that hour delay, the captain stated that there was some issues with the plane's lo..

    Why would you sell a ticket and not figure that there would be any baggage?
    Summary
    I paid for my daughters' flight. Little did I know that there are other fees to be paid for their trip and Frontier got them stranded in Denver UNLESS they PAY for their carry ons.
    Full Fright
    My daughters flew from KC to Salt Lake City, via Denver. They were told, in Denver that they could not board, after having flown from MCI, until they paid additional "baggage" fee, in the amount of $100.00, for the two small carryon bags that they had. That is one bag each. My daughters were very upset, as they had little cash with them and no credit cards. This is a form of extortion as far as I am concerned. I prepaid for their flights, with the understanding that this was all paid for.

    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..

    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.
