    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..

    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 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.

    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.
    Full Fright
    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. So, we were hurriedly but reluctan..

    I had scheduled a flight for July 30th, changed date till Aug 8th and paid $75.00 to change flight dates.Showed up for flight only to be told the flight was cancelled.

    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 feel I should be refunded my $75.00 s..

    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..

    Summary
    It is unforgivable and unexcusable that we would miss an immediate family member's funeral and then to be provided no help in securing another flight, etc.

    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..

    Terrible Customer Service and Website not working
    Summary
    I tried to view/change my reservation using the website.Although I've flown Frontier several times in the past I was unable to retrieve my reservation online. I had to call the 800 number, then guess what?
    Full Fright
    I was told by the recording that there was a 50 minute wait !!! When I finally reached a customer service agent and complained she seemed indifferent and "beaten down: but the number of complaints that she surely hears every day. Bottom line - Frontier deserves to go out of business.The way they treat customers with their "surprise" charges is despicable. I understand that they need to make money to survive but alienating their customers is clearly not the way to do it.I have not even got ..

    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..

    Charges for anything extra
    Summary
    I am so frustrated with Frontier's new policies to charge you extra for everything: seat assignment, carry-on bag, checked bag, coffee on the flight, etc.
    Full Fright
    I'm sure they will be charging for seat belts soon. Frontier used to be my favorite airline, but now I avoid them at all costs. I am happy to pay a little extra (or not in many cases) to fly Southwest Airlines where they still let you check a bag for free and carry on a bag with your personal item. If Southwest isn't available, I look for anything other than Frontier now. We are spreading the word and on my recent flight from Cincinnati, I heard several passengers complaining saying they wouldn'..

    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..

    Summary
    Check in was slow and unfriendly. My seat on the way to my destination was slouched to the right and the cushion was worn below the frame so I had two hours of metal frame for a seat. The story goes on...

    Costs for drinks are what they are, but the crew could offer the complimentary cup of water or the charge for bottled. Also if you have to delay a flight 2.5 hours and not update the flight information on the boards I highly suggest you use the intercom when calling to finally board. I appreciate that I was nearly left behind after being told that You were being screamed at to close the doors yet could not properly inform passengers that the plane planning to leave. But here is my favorite part ..

    We were early for our flight but still got delayed because they didn't let us board
    Summary
    I would never fly Frontier Airlines again. Last week we have a 7am flight departing Denver on Friday morning. We arrived at the airport at 5.30am to check in for our flight, we had to check bags so we figured we would just check in at the gate. We waited in line to check in for 45 minutes. But got on the flight 10 hours after.
    Full Fright
    We waited in line to check in for 45 minutes and when we got to the check in counter, the lady stated that their system had locked (it was now 41 minutes before our flight) and we were not allowed to check in or attempt to catch our flight. Their policy is that you must be checked in 45 minutes before departure or you are out of luck, we were 4 minutes late but had also been waiting in line for 45 minutes. The front desk lady was extremely rude and unhelpful and just continued saying "well do yo..

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

Happy

 They don't get anything right. 

Jason

 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 

Lander

 "I detect an accent. Do you understand English?" - Frontier staff... This is clearly discrimination!!
