    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..

    Just trying to get home
    Summary
    We were just trying to get home. When our flight got re-scheduled, they booked us a hotel but didn't inform me of the further changes in schedule. They even separated me from my 9-year-old

    Trying to get home to Orange County, CA from Orlando. Flight was scheduled for Monday but I tried to grab an earlier flight. Frontier had zero flights leaving until Monday. On Monday as I arrived at the airport I was notified the flight had been changed to 5.48 am the following day. I was given a hotel voucher. A few hours later I happened to be walking past ticketing and noticed my flight to Denver was now showing 11.48 pm same day (in a few hours). I asked if the flight at 5.48 am tomorrow was..

    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..

    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. &..

    On a Classic Plus
    Summary
    They have all these rules about when we are to check in etc but when we get there to check in where are they?
    Full Fright
    The Sky Harbor ticket counter was horrible. Not only did we have to wait on them for 15+ minutes when they did show up they sauntered like they had all day. No comments to anyone about our wait. We happened to be first and actually got our bags tagged after the sixth person in line behind us. The gal "helping" us was rude and I swear moving as slow as she could. Maybe I should not have said anything about being there first! I have over 200k frequent flyer miles-Southwest here I come!

    My wife and I had scheduled flights 4 months in advanced with Frontier Airlines August 11 with what was suppose to be a plane change in Denver with a 45 minute wait time however once we arrived in Denver which was over an hour late we had just got off our first flight and heard last call boarding to Wash.and we literally had to run from one flight to the next with our carry ons from one side of the airport to the next. We were out of breath and not happy! From the very beginning of our trip t..

    My 2 crying year old
    Summary
    They placed my 2 year old away from me. And talked about us to other passengers.
    Full Fright
    Flew from SLC to Denver then to Puerto Vallarta. First flew with small children all separated from parents when asked to change seats was told by a very rude stewardess that we had to stay in assigned seats. What person flying wants to sit next to someone else's crying two year old? Then the stewardess had the nerve to talk to other passengers about us, very unprofessional. Pay the extra fly Delta.

    What can DOT say about this "compliance"?
    Summary
    They were very dishonest in telling us the reason for flight delays.
    Full Fright
    Flight delay from 6:55 pm departure to 12:20 am next day was falsely attributed by Frontier agents to "weather delay of incoming flight from Seattle." However, (1) Seattle flying weather was excellent all day. (2) Frontier website showed all Seattle-Denver flights arrived on time that day. (3) Frontier evidently switched the designated equipment (from incoming Seattle-Denver flight 140, arriving approx. 4:30 pm) to a different route, possibly one that did encounter a weather delay -- and (4) mad..

    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..

    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..

    Bullied to pay!!!
    Summary
    Attendant took our itinerary, asked us to measure our two bags. They were fit the smaller frame which was 18 x 14 x 8. But she insisted on that we need to have them checked-in. And looked at her watch, said the gate will be closed in 5 minutes... She says if we did not pay $50.00, we would be paying $70.00 when boarding at the gate. We thought that Frontier Airlines did not allow any personal belongings to get on the airplane. So, we hurriedly but reluctantly gave her the credit card paying $50...
    Full Fright
    After we had security check to the waiting area by the gate, the airplane just arrived. The passengers were starting to get out of the plane. It was not the gate closed. It still had 45 minutes. To my shocked was the passengers out and in with luggage were all bigger than ours. We were allowed to have carry-ons and bags! I asked some of them who did not pay for any fees. I talked to the attendant by the gate what happened to us with our bags, she handed me the "FLYFRONTIER.COM" card and told me ..

    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 were treated poorly and forced to pay fee $50.00 for personal items by a front desk.
    Summary
    We got the Orlando airport.The front desk lady attendant took our itinerary asked us to measure the our two bags. They were fit the smaller frame which was 18x14x8. But she insisted on that we need to have them checked-in. We did not want to because bags were not the size of carry-on so that we did not want to waiting for the luggage when we arrive to TTN. So we moved in the items out to make room in the bags.

    She gave us contempt look and said the air plane had 5 minutes to close the gate. We asked if we could just checking one piece because the other one was empty. She rudely replied that it was our problem. She kept reminding us that it was us who was trying to change airline policy. She says, if we did not pay $50.00 we would be paying $70.00 when boarding at the gate. We thought that Frontier airline did not allow any personal belongs to get on the air plane.

    They will not refund my change fee and I got nothing for this. Is this how you stay afloat? Ripping people off. No email,message etc from airline. No reason for cancellation. The other airline were still flying in and out of Chicago they gave weather as the excuse when I called on 8/14 . No one even said they were sorry, Russ were very rude, as the "Face" of that speaks volumes. They told us all flights were booked till Wed the 13th, our return date.

    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 ..

    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.
    Full Fright
    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..

    In Denver the gate agent refused to let me board because my fly rod did not fit the size requirements. I said "they had no problem with it in Cincinnati" to which he replied "well I wasn't in Cincinnati." I asked for a supervisor who said the same thing. When I asked for her name, she said she didn't have to give it to me. Then I was charged $35 to check the rod.If I had known beforehand, it would have cost only $15 at online check-in. This was, hands down, the worst customer service I hav..
