Pros: Crew did fine. Flight was on time.

Cons: The area I sat in smelled of vomit upon boarding. In addition sat next to a child that pooped himself about 15 minutes after takeoff and his parents neglected to change him for the remainder of the flight. One of the adult beverages that I attempted to order was in the menu, but no longer carried.

Pros: Frontier closed their ticketing counter before 45mins before the flight was scheduled to take off. No one was at the ticketing counter...just a small sign saying counter closes 45mins before flight. Self service kiosk worked for some but started telling everyone to go to the ticketing counter.

Cons: Seemed like they oversold the flight and once there were enough people who checked in, they closed the ticket counter.

The price was not super competitive and on top they give you mediocre Seats, they split your family members just to push you to pay for the upgrades.

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.
