Great early morning crew and flight deck...

Nov 14, 2019

Fun staff, nice new plane, wonderful seat, and best value ever. Oh and one of the best landings I have ever had. Some how I got my ticket for $19 and some how I got a whole row to myself. I drove to Denver vehicle processing center to have my sons car shipped to his base in spangdahlem Germany from Omaha NE. It was a long drive, a stressful inspection, a confusing trip by taxi to the airport, a large airport to maneuver and the plane ride to get me home was stress free, an ending I Really needed. Thank you! I will recommend Frontier to all!

I didn’t like that you had to pay for a backpack only on the frontier flight. Didn't have to pay on United.

Was disappointed that we sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes waiting for a paper for the Captain to sign, at Grand Junction before take off. This made it a dash to get to the gate in Denver.
