“Not Bad”
Review of Frontier Airlines


Reviewed 22 September 2017 via mobile

Frontier Airlines is what it is: a barebones economy airline that will get you front Point A to Point B. Annoying you have to pay for carry ons, but you get a free pass for one personal item. So if you're going away for a day, cheat. Paying for water is beyond me - it's a necessity for petes sake, but I was on a short flight. Flying out of LGA to a real airport is always funny, but Frontier got me to ATL in one piece, on time and safe. New-ish airplanes. I wouldn't fly them cross country but I'd do it for a short flight in a pinch again.

I will never fly this airline again. Cheap flight but they charge you for everything. Charge for check bags, charge you for overhead bags, you can bring for free one personnel item for under your seat in front of you. No snacks , no drinks unless you want to pay for snacks or drinks. I think they do offer water for free (to drink with your bread) Charge you for seats also(10.00 to 57.00 per seat) unless you check in early to get some of the few free seats in the back and the middle. What's next ? Charge you to go to the bathroom. Fly southwest with lots of free bags.

We recently flew Frontier for the first time after our trip was diverted from Corpus Cristi due to the hurricane. The flight was non stop and everyone was very nice and the last minute booking price was great.I will always check with Frontier first before booking with another airline.check your bags in online to save money.

The seats are still comfortable. I do just fine with a carry on, so I don't have the extra charges. Very tiny tray tables but they work. staff on both flights were friendly.

Frontier Airlines primarily uses Airbus A-319 jets which are only comfortable for flights of less than 2 hours MAX. Anything more than 1.5 hours are not recommended (by me). The seats are hard with very little leg room. Frontier entices you with low fares up front, then hooks you with $12 per person for seat assignments FOR EACH leg of your trip. Then there's the $35 -$55 per bag. You will be crammed in like a sardine. Bring your own snacks because a soft drink and some chips will set you back about $6.00.
