My Frontier Airlines Review

My Frontier Airlines ReviewI had the opportunity to fly with Frontier Airlines last month. I can’t lie, I was a little nervous. The reviews for Frontier were not the best, but I wanted to stay within my budget. I booked my return flight from Las Vegas to Atlanta with them. I had a layover in Denver. This post is my Frontier Airlines review.

The first thing that I must say is that when booking a flight with Frontier, you have to make sure you read their policies. The website explains EVERYTHING from baggage fees to info about snacks. I can guarantee that half the people that left negative reviews about Frontier on Yelp did not read the policy information on their site. I’m sure that most of their problems would not have happened if they would have taken a couple of extra minutes to read it. Below are the pros and cons of my trip.

Pros

On Time

As stated earlier I flew from Las Vegas to Denver then from Denver to Atlanta. Both of the flights were on time.

Clean

Both planes that I flew on were clean. I had read a couple of reviews where people said there was a little trash on the ground under the seat in front of them. I didn’t see anything like that. The bathrooms were even clean.

Flights Attendants

The flight attendants were very nice. They even explained the snack menu in detail to an older couple that was seated in front of me.

Price

My flight cost $119. That was an excellent price for a one-way ticket. I only had to pay $20 to check my bag. That made my total charges to Frontier $139. You can’t beat that. Frontier seems to have pretty good prices for most of their destinations.

Space

The plane had enough space for me. Reading some of the reviews, I thought people would be packed together like sardines or something. I’m glad that wasn’t the case.

Cons

Seats

One thing that could be a slight con is that the seats didn’t recline on either of the planes I was on. I know that could a big deal for some people. It really didn’t bother me, though.

No Wi-Fi

This isn’t really that big of a con, but the majority of their planes don’t have Wi-Fi. That wasn’t a big deal to me. I slept and listened to music for the majority of my flights.

I hope you enjoyed my Frontier Airlines review.I had a better than expected experience flying with Frontier Airlines. In my opinion, they are much better than Spirit Airlines. I would probably fly with Frontier again if it saved me money.

Have you ever flown with Frontier Airlines? What was your experience? If you haven’t flown with them why not?

  1. Never have flown with Frontier Airlines but based in this review, I might. Never do recline my seat anyway and love that the guy in front of me can’t! LOL

    Yes, I flew Frontier Airlines one time and never again! I was flying from Sacramento to Minneapolis. When I got on the plane in Sacramento, someone was in my seat. Frontier double booked my seat, which they do deliberately. The flight attendant simple dismissed me out-of-hand and said go talk to the people at the desk. The desk told me they could get me on a plane in 2 days! My husband had driven me the one hour to the airport, and I called him again to pick me up. Just as he drove up, someone came out and said they had a seat for me on a later plane that day.

    What really bugged me about this airline was their general rudeness. I am a very mild person, but I became angry about this. I had bought and paid for a seat on that plane. I was traveling to see a family member recovering from surgery. When my voice began to rise a little in anger, they said they were calling security. Excuse me? Never, never again will I fly Frontier. I stick with Southwest and never have any problems.

  3. Glad to hear this Jason. I live near Newark Airport and most of the flights are with United, an airline that has the worst customer service this side of Comcast. I’ve been curious about Frontier because they fly into Trenton which is farther away from me but potentially promises a much less congested experience.

  4. I’ve never flown on Frontier, so good information to hear. It’s always good to hear about the alternatives to the big ones!

  5. I’ve never flown Frontier either but based on your review I’d certainly give them a try if the opportunity arose. Thanks!

  6. I don’t fly or for that matter, travel so can’t really say anything about Frontier. I do feel this post can be helpful to a lot of travelers although reading the comments, not everyone is happy. Your post though will probably encourage some to at least give Frontier a chance, especially considering the savings.

  7. No but I live in sunny UK.

    Your review covers absolutely everything for a person flying with Frontier . You do not scrimp on words but let it flow.

  8. I never flew Frontier but I did hear a review about them. They did say to check the policy. I’m glad you had a good experience.

  9. I have a warm place in my heart for frontier airlines is that is the airline I used to move to Los Angeles. And I too stopped in Denver (I think that is where almost all their flights stop since that is their main hub.) I remember going over Vegas and the pilot said to look out the right so we could see all the lights. I had never been to the west coast so I was so excited to see Vegas, even if it was from very far away. Frontier is no frills. So if you’re expecting frills just use a different airline. I personally thought they were just fine.
