Pros: Seats were better than usual. On time.

Cons: Jammed full, not enough overhead bin storage. Too many people allowed to bring on WAY too much as carry-on. Badly managed. Wasn't Lufthansa, was a code share on a United flight. Wish it was Lufthansa, which is what the ticket originally was supposed to be. Bait and switch!

Pros: Seat - non-adjustable. Hard but survivable for 3 hours. A320 equip

Cons: Time of day was not good - but you can't control THAT. Roudy passengers (group of 3 men in 20's) behind us - musta be (legal in Colorado) 'chemically enhanced' - uncomfortably LOUD.

DCA
DEN
Okay 5.6

Pros: The crew on my flight it self did a great job but comfort is not there. I don’t think I’ll fly with Frontier anymore. It’s not worth the hassle.

Cons: The experience was aweful, simple language purchase took me two days to get. 1 days of stress figuring out how to buy my carry online. 45 min wait to talk to someone. The good thing was the call center representative was patient and help me out, if not for her I would’ve have to spend more than $650

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.
