    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..

    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?

    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 ..

    No Plus with Classic Plus
    Summary
    I spent more for more services but got less. I think I just wasted my money.
    Full Fright
    I recently flew from Cincinnati to Denver with a full Classic Plus fare. I was supposed to get a free alcohol drink and unlimited regular drinks on the flight. Yet when I asked for a diet pepsi I was charged $1.99. I paid over $100 extra for this segment for the Classic Plus fare. Also the airline didn't even know I was on this flight and cancelled my return flight. I had to wait on hold with customer service for 45 minutes to have this error corrected. I don't understand why this airline ..

    We felt so violated!
    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..

    On Monday July 7th, we had our outbound flight 625 from Detroit to Denver delayed due to mechanical problems and ended up being at 4 airports for over 24 hours straight because of missed connecting flights. The flight was supposed to leave at 7:10 pm on Monday to Denver and arrive in Bozeman at 11 pm mountain time. It ended up leaving Detroit at 2:45 am on Tuesday July 8th. We arrived in Denver at 3:45 am mountain time (5:45 am eastern time). We were then sent on a connecting flight to Seattle a..

    BEWARE OF FRONTIER CHARGES
    Summary
    I booked a Frontier flight and got the screen for buying luggage ahead of time to save me money. I clicked yes and didn't think anything of it.
    Full Fright
    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! After 1 customer service agent and 2 supervisors, I was told conflicting information and was basically told nobody is willing to help me transfer my carry on to checked bags. I am disappointed that I chose Frontier; I used to like them and paid 10 bucks more for my flight that is goin..

    Summary
    I do NOT recommend this airport, Yes the Frontier flights are super cheap, but DO expect to get what you pay for.

    Yesterday my nieces and I were flying out of Trenton to Milwaukee, my nieces are 16 and 13 and had their own reservation so technically they were "alone." We arrived just a few mins before the cutoff time of 45 (you must check in or you cannot board the plane) we had a bag to check in so we chose not to do the online check in, since I knew we would be stuck in line anyway. The kiosk told me I had to get in line to check in, before I knew it I overheard other passengers saying the plane left earl..

    Nightmare on Frontier
    Summary
    I purchased my ticket from Phoenix to Fairbanks through a 3rd party. While price comparing, I checked Frontier's bag policy before booking my flight and it read 1 carry on and 1 checked bag aloud so I booked the flight. Today while trying to check in, I see the fees for bags, more for a carry on than a checked bag. I call to inquire about the misinformation, while on hold for 45 min, I hear the recording about the bundles, ok, now I understand but when I checked the site, I found that confusing.
    Full Fright
    I continued to check in and after three hours of trying to check in I called customer "no service" about the baggage information misunderstanding, and the inability to check in. All she said was that I should have booked through their site, I would have better information regarding the baggage policy, even though I went to their site to obtain the baggage policy. When I asked her about my ability to check in, she said I have to make sure I have the ability to print or it won't check me in. I tol..

    My baggage was booked, I was not!
    Summary
    I've been a satisfied Frontier customer for about 10 years, tapering off my patronage after they dropped Boise and my family member moved from there. In all that time, pleasant flight crews and no lost baggage. However, I sense there's been a paradigm shift in the way Frontier treats its customers, and what I experienced and observed yesterday is consistent with so many complaints about this airline.
    Full Fright
    My booking included 2 passengers, rt ATL-SEA, partially paid for with ER miles. That's actually what prompted the trip use or lose notice for my ER miles. I paid for stretch seating an additional $30/apiece on each flight, or $120. The ATL-SEA piece was without incident. Upon return, I was able to log on and check in my fellow passenger, a grandson, but not myself. The notice said something about getting to the airport 3 hours in advance. (Supposedly to resolve whatever problem there was. I ran ..

    Some are ok. Most are not!
    Summary
    Some of the policies and employees are ok and bearable.But most are not.
    Full Fright
    Frontier is very slow to answer their phones. Customer Care won't even talk to you, only by email. The hold times are anywhere from 30 min to an hour on better. I lost my miles with them because I could not talk to a person before they expired and when I finally got to a person I was too late and they said there was nothing they could do. Their no frills flights are OK. You have to buy everything but the employees are nice when you are able to talk to them... Thanks...

    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 ..

    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.

    My ex-husband and I share custody of our two children Ava age 8 and Gabriel age 6. We split time between Minneapolis and Salt Lake City as I live in Utah and Steve in Minnesota. Ever since Gabriel turned 5 they have been flying Frontier from Minneapolis to Denver and I either fly from Salt Lake City to Denver to meet them or drive to pick them up. On 6/14/14 I opted to fly from SLC to DEN to meet my children and catch the late flight from DEN to SLC that evening. My flight (572) was delayed to D..

    There is no more customer service
    Summary
    It seems that Frontier is purely business. No customer service at all, or if there is, it's awful. Additional fees that makes them more expensive.
    Full Fright
    What was once a decent airline is now beyond a nightmare. The new baggage policies are ridiculous. They are taking no frills to new limits, and despite the few bucks you save on the ticket price, you will end up paying more than competitors in the long run after $2 water charge $50 carry on charge (for the first carry on) and have a poor experience. Customer service, if you can even get it, is awful. On the phone, from a gate agent, etc. this airline is almost primitive now. Very disappointing. ..

    Once upon a time.... Actually on May 30th
    Summary
    A long-term married couple made their way to the KCI (Kansas City) airport to catch a booked flight on Frontier Airlines. They where ultimately headed to EUG and had a lay-over in DEN. Looking forward to a family reunion and assured all of their information was correct, they headed to check in and pay the $20 for one checked bag. Once that was taken care of, they innocently headed to the gate to board their flight. Oh, the chaos that was waiting for them….
    Full Fright
    At the gate, the female agent made an announcement that all carryons were subject to an additional fee. However, the wife being secure in her printed out paperwork, new that they had packed according to the guidelines at the time of purchase. She boldly went up to the gate attendant to ask what was going on with this announcement, only to be told she needed to pay for her additional carryon. The wife pulled out her papers, printed on the day of booking, showing the baggage guidelines. She shows ..

    With our flight cancelled, we have to find our own way to fly to a city near Wilmington.

    They cancelled our flight from Orlando to Wilmington at the last minute saying the plane did not ever leave Denver. They said maybe they could get us on a flight in 3 days! They would not help even help us find another airline to fly. They just gave us a business card with a 1-800-432-1359 number on it. This had a 67 minute wait time. We had to pay top dollar at US Air to get to a city close to Wilmington.

    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.

    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. After arriving at Denver she was told that her luggage was marked as NOT TO BE DEL..

    Hands down worst customer service of any airline/company

    I first attempted to call their customer service line to resolve my problem, and everytime I called there was a 45+ minute wait, so I emailed instead. But issue still didn't get resolved.
    Full Fright
    Keep in mind it takes them 3-4 days to respond to emails (which I find unacceptable) so I tried to work it out with them for a few weeks. Following my initial complaint, the customer service rep went in and deleted all my airline miles I had accumulated, seeing as how my initial contact with them was resolving and issue on using them. Second, they didn't even bother to tell me they deleted the miles, they tried to play me for being ignorant and said I had no miles. Three weeks of battling with t..

    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.

    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. ..
