Tried to change flights because of my mother's passing and had so much frustration to change the flight it became too much to deal with. I will be happier to pay more for a different carrier in the future than fly on Frontier.

The cabin crew was great at boarding and organizing the overhead bin space. Also, ground staff didn’t start check roll aboards before the overheads bins were full. There is nothing more frustrating than getting on after forced to gate check your bag to empty bin space (ahem, United at SFO).

Couldn’t get the entertainment to work.

I did like that "new plane" smell. Good pretzels.

Plane was too new; computer system hadn't been set right. Left 45 minutes late, though made up some lost time in the air. Very rude passengers (obviously not the airline's fault, I know). Everyone thinks they should be the first to get off the plane!

Boarding was good

How do you board a multi-million dollar aircraft, yet still find yourself in an old western tv show. Easy, fly Frontier Airlines. The seats were like riding on an old horse buggy. Hard and unforgiving. The only positive was I didn’t get any slivers in my butt. No complimentary anything. Even the old settlers from the past could rustle up something simple to eat and drink, but not on Frontier. They need to get up to speed in this department, other airlines are starting to give drinks and snacks again for the long wagon ride in front of them.

I finally got to Portland.

The plane did not arrive at gate, they gave us poor/invalid excuses as to why there was no plane. We moved from gate 73A to gate 82, in another terminal back to gate 73A for no explainable reason. Finally we left after having to checked in now at gate 73.....what a mess and over 2hrs late!

I’m not a fan of the waffle cookies, wish they had a couple of choices of snacks.

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.
