Frontier Airlines

I'm planning a vacation to OR in Aug. We are taking AMTRAK out but flying back. So far Frontier Airlines is offering the best price. I've never used them. HELP. Anything I should be aware of before committing?

Put the correct name on the tickets? Make sure it's the right date? I don't think you need to particularly worry about anything special with Frontier.

We have flown on Frontier a number of times and always had great experiences. I wouldn't worry at all.

We flew to Punta Cana last week on Frontier (Apple Tours uses Frontier's jets). Flights were on time. If you can, request seats that are next to the emergency exits. You'll have twice the leg room.

We recently flew Frontier for the first time from New Orleans, LA to Denver, CO. When we checked in the staff were accommodating to make sure that my partner had a window seat and we sat together. In flight the attendants were professional and friendly. We were in Zone 2 which has a little extra leg room but not much. Things to look out for with Frontier: July 1st they will begin charging for what are now complimentary beverages (Pepsi products) and at some point if you book through a discount website you will be paying a carry on baggage fee.

Frontier are transitioning to an ultra low cost carrier. So read their website very carefully for additional fees. It doesn't make them a bad airline, just that you need to be aware of what your ticket gets you and what it doesn't. Their latest fee is for carry-ons in the overhead bin, but you can avoid that by booking direct with the airline.

If I book "economy"..can we choose our seat in advance. we are a family of 4 with kids so want to be sure we are seated together. We also are a little leary of booking with them. They are half the cost from NJ to Orlando than United!!! But I worry if there is a delay of any kind how soon would we fly. When returning from Orlando the morning flight is they only one that day. Also they are the only carrier that leaves from the airport in nj, so if there is a delay/cancellation...no alternatives!! Are they dependable?? Would love to save this amount of money :)!!

I just flew round trip Oregon to Florida and Frontier as a "Classic Plus" passenger. Really they're just another cheapskate airline with hard seats and filthy tray tables. On the 4 hour flight FLL to Denver there was some kind of problem wherein they had no snacks on board for any price. And don't count on any free snack or TV or movie or magazine or even SkyMall. You will get a free sales pitch to sign up for the Frontier Airlines credit card, though.

I was wondering about this airline as well. They seem to be as cheap as Spirit. Do they nickle and dime you as well?
