Mediocre 2.6

Pros: Plane was clean

Cons: They forgot to change a tire apparently overnight? Boarded the whole plain and maintenance shows up with 10 mins until take off time and has the whole plane deplaned so they could change a tire at 530am. Ridiculous.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: The crew was confused with a passenger. Left 30 minutes late on a full plane due to one person. Weak. Plane was nice and air conditioned from the gate though.

Cons: I'm shocked Frontier charges individually and at tiered rates for: Carry on bags Checked bags Seats selection Food Water Just wait, they'll be issuing credits for a bathroom break based on good behavior soon. Shocking practices deserve shocking responses. I'll only use Frontier in a very bad bind.

Pros: Definitely can't beat the price, especially for a non-stop flight halfway across the country. I had plenty of room in my seat even with my backpack under the seat. The drink and snack selections are pretty decent.

Cons: Delayed to start and it took a while for all the bags to be loaded. Once we arrived it took over an hour from the time we touched down to when our bags arrived at the baggage claim. Ended up finally leaving the airport an hour and a half after the time I was originally supposed to arrive.

Cons: They were delayed. They wouldn't let us keep our checked sized bags which slowed us down even more. Our next flight left without us while we were waiting for a gate to open so we could get off the plane. There were no more flights so we had to fly to an alternate city and rent a car to get home.

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.
