    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
    Full Fright
    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..

    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. &..

    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.
    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..

    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...

    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.

Moreover, the daughter and mother she was flying with was suddenly charged $150 extra dollars. I will never fly Frontier for their lies and deceit.

    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..

    We thought we had the best deal with the least expensive fair
    Summary
    The least expensive airfare looks like a lot of savings but I guess we wrong
    Full Fright
    We flew Frontier from Trenton to Tampa because the flight appeared to be the least expensive and because of the convenience of Trenton Airport. It was a mistake that we will never make again! No free luggage at all - the first piece checked in costs $25. If you have a carry, it costs even more - $35. When we factor in $8 a day for parking at Trenton Airport, we ended paying more than what we would have flying other airlines. The flight was delayed both ways. The fight from Trenton was over an ho..

    Denver to SFO, July 2nd. This is an inferior airline due to its policies and poor customer service. It is a myth that it costs less when you are done with their nickle and diming. The flight crews are fine, it is everything leading up to it. The extra charges are over the top. The only thing that does not cost is a glass of water and using the toilet but I would not be surprised if this will change. I witnessed a young woman traveling with a baby who had paid for a checked bag. When she decided ..

My girlfriend and I checked in at our house and did not have access to a printer to print our passes leaving us with the only option of arriving early to have them printed by a Frontier representative. Confident that we were on time, (over an hour early for boarding at this small airport) we stood in line behind a handful of people and two, sometimes one representative. The line crept. Two or three people had been assisted in front of us and all the sudden..

    I recently flew American Airlines to Seattle to get my two children and we flew Frontier back to TN. I had no problems at all with American to Seattle. No unexpected fees and charges or hassles at all. You should know that your buck doesn't stop with buying a ticket with Frontier. You must buy your seats and you must pay $50 per any carry on that goes in an overhead or checked at the gate. Even if it fits easily. They are out to squeeze every dime out of you in every way.

    A detailed report of Frontier's Scheme
    Summary
    I am a former rocket scientist, aerospace executive, President of a Utah computer software company, and business entrepreneur. I have read hundreds of online reviews regarding the many different ways that Frontier Airlines ALLEGEDLY uses to purposely deny some persons, that have purchased tickets on SOLD OUT Frontier Flights, a timely issued boarding pass, thus preventing those persons from boarding their Flight, and also allowing Frontier to avoid paying those persons compensation of up to $130..
    Full Fright
    This Frontier rule, combined with the all too often late arrival of Frontier Gate Agents, makes it easy for Frontier Gate Agents to deny some persons a boarding pass on sold out flights, thus saving Frontier up to $1300 per passenger on sold out flights as per 14 CFR 250 rules. And to make things even worse, Frontier then usually imposing a ticket change fee of $75 to $100 or more if you are not issued a valid boarding pass prior to 45 minutes before your flight departs.
