Flight was delayed with no recognition or apologies. Seats were incredibly uncomfortable. Waited 1.5 hours in baggage claim for my bags... and again no explaination, no official to ask what was happening or when we could expect our bags. Word spread that the conveyer belt froze and the bags were stuck in the plane. Who knows. And as I write this: I am currently on a flight that has been delayed from 4:00 pm now leaving at 11:45pm. I will never book with them again.

Frontier website is cumbersome & not intuitive for check in & baggage calculations and classification purposes, needs a major overhaul. For that reason alone, I'll avoid flying Frontier in the future.

Nice people work at Frontier for most part. Very affordable flights due to cost cutting all over. As long as you just want a basic flight to and from, Frontier is solid.

Try to charge ya for a coke, guess that's why they are so cheap, no freebies. Seats remind me of luxurious greyhound seats. Can tell Frontier cuts corners left and right to lower ticket cost. Delayed an hour, probably due to Ohare Airport.

The plane eventually got me to Chicago.

The plane was inexplicably delayed by first 7 hours and ultimately 9 hours. Rather than leave at 7:30 pm Wednesday night, it took off at 4:30 am Thursday morning. Even worse, TSA didn't START work at the airport in Salt Lake until 4:30. I was fortunate enough to make the flight, but many others did not. Frontier provided no explanation regarding the delay, nor could they explain or even bother to care that the rescheduling occurred at a time Salt Lake passengers couldn't even go through security! Overall, this was an unacceptable experience.

Initial ticket price was low, but everything else has a cost. From checked to carry-on luggage, drinks and snacks on board. I prefer all inclusive pricing.

Seats were very uncomfortable, probably the worst I've experienced. They are locked in an upright position so you can't lean back. That's probably good though because you are crammed in pretty tight.

It was cheap. Although in the end I would have paid much more for a flight that actually got me somewhere.

Flight was delayed from 4pm to 10:13 pm. Then boarding it too slow and we get in the plane at 10:45. Then, we wait at the gate for various reasons (?????) until 12:30, at which point the crew informs us that the crew has exceeded their time limit and we're returning to the gate. 8 hours of exhaustion and no flight,

The crew was good- at least one of the guys was. Never saw the others so I can't speak about them.

Very uncomfortable seats. A plastic chair with barely a 1/4" foam on it. Smallest tray tables ever- probably for the drink and snacks they charge you for. Not roomy at all. And more expensive than my other flight- only reason I took this one was because it was the only non stop flight to SLC. Paid $357 then was charged an additional $60 to pick my seat and for a carry on- what the heck was the $357 for?? Not to mention the plane was dirty- I guess they didn't have time to clean it between flights- not the crews fault I guess. I will go out of my way to avoid frontier from now on. It was my first and last flight with them. I'll take my chances on the plane they transported the Ebola patient in from overseas. How are companies with this many low ratings still in business?

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.
