The price of the flight was great, but even with an upgraded seat I will not be flying Frontier again.

I upgraded my girlfriend and I to stretch seating for our 5 hour flights roundtrip from ATL to SFO. I did not realize by upgrading and selecting my seat in row 4 that my seats do not recline. This caused several issues with my bad back and with the fold down tray on the seat in front of me. I had my laptop on the tray, and when the person in front of me leaned his seat back all the way suddenly, it pinched the top of the screen between the tray and the back of his seat and cracked my laptop exterior. The main issue was not being able to "stretch" by not having a reclining seat and experienced major discomfort and back pain both flights.

The seats had slightly more leg room than usual but their seats don't recline so that sort of undermines the positive.

They charge for bags checked, they charge for carry ons larger than a backpack, they charge for coffee, they charge for soda, and I half expected their to be a bathroom fee. The crew was competent but they work for a greedy company that doesn't value customer service. One lady was late for her flight and they told her to call an 800 number. It's called frontier because you are on your own in the wilderness of this airline. Whatever discounts on airfare you get, they make up with charges and fees. So bad!

Where should I begin! To be as modest as they are in what they provide the tickets prices aren't even mindblowingly low!! Seats don't recline, service was a joke( maybe the staff had a hard time because of all the delays, I did cut them a little slack with the extra star) and only 2/4 lavatories worked. Frontier got me this time, but bets believe it won't happen again!!

From checkin to in flight service. It was horrible. The 5 hours flight with nothing, no tv, movie, nor complimentary snacks or drink. Everything need to be purchased, even a small orange juice cup will cost about $4. The only free is a cup of ice water. When I asked for another water, they told me they only give 2 cups of 2 waters. If I need more, I need to purchase it. Omg! Really? I seriously think they hire those stewardesswith a minimum wage and they have to sale stuff for commission. Why would they need 5 stewardesses when they didn’t even serve.

Let's see - I was in first class. The flight itself was fine - and only one hour + late!

Food - Served the "breakfast" (when it was called a protein plate) I had coming (into MSP). for "lunch" on the way back (called it a meat plate for lunch. One slice turkey, one slice jamon, one egg, cinnamon roll and fruit. Just because they don't want to serve bread - they call it a protein plate? I'm not on a protein diet. Food was pretty sick for the amount I paid for the fight. Stewardess said it was against Republic's rules to give a customer a can of tonic water (so I could add to the small amount of vodka) - she also told me that it was against Delta's, American's and United's rules to give a can - strange? First Class seat did not recline. First Class was freezing per every flight on this segment (the stewardesses sit in the back and don't want to be uncomfortable - if they make the front warm - the back is too hot for them (not joking on this one). So many things to list - that I will finish on the AA site.

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.
