Pros: The staff was excellent and the boarding process was quick and smooth. While the flight was delayed, staff really did a great job moving everyone along quickly and safely.

Cons: This was my first time flying Frontier. The flight was 2 and 1/2 hours delayed. While the boarding process was quick, the delay really put a damper on the flight. Seats were very uncomfortabe and seemed smaller than other airlines I have traveled more frequently. The carpet had gum all over it.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: Absolutely horrible aircraft. I am 6 ft 3 and there was no way I could fit my body into the seat without crushing my knees. So I had one leg underneath the seat in front of me the other leg in the Isle. The flight attendant came down the aisle with the drink cart running it squarely into my knee.

Cons: I cried out in pain with tears in my eyes and all she could say was you shouldn't have your leg in the Isle.

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.
