Great flight

Jan 19, 2020

It would have been nice to get email notifications. Usually when flying frontier I get email notifications. From Frontier, including one that tells me which terminal in Austin I'm flying into, which is important since it takes about 20 minutes to drive to the next terminal. Luckily I already figured it would be the new terminal and was able to get my ride to pick me up from there. I did receive email notifications from Americanan airlines for my arrival trip, but not from Frontier on my return trip. Since I have never had that issues with Frontier before, I can only assume there was some communication issue between Orbitz and Frontier.

It is freezing cold in this plane, and the sales pitch was cheesy, but overall a good flight!
