Cons: Seats are not that comfortable, I now bring my own cushion. I suspect that people are not being checked to make sure that they paid for a carry on. If it's a personal item it should not go overhead. De plane process is slow because of the passengers fumbling over head.

Pros: I’m pretty positive everything would’ve been great however we called frontier Airline several times to tell them the connecting flight was delayed unfortunately making us eight minutes late and they departed without us so we were not able to be on the flight and now we contacted the office.

Cons: In this uncontrollable circumstances with proof possibly allow a credit or refund better because now we have to book another flight or make a red another arrangements to drive or salon and pay for rooms. Town that we flew out from did not have frontier. This is a family medical ER trip not pleasure

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
