Flights Review

Feb 28, 2020

The only thing that I didn’t like was when one of the pilots came around showing a brochure for the United Airlines credit card. Seemed a little bit tacky.

Feb 24, 2020

Overall my experience was good. The only down fall was they sent our luggage to NC on the way home vs. Denver. So we will not get it for over 24 hours. Which is a bit of a bummer.

Feb 20, 2020

I am generally happy with the flight, but I miss the customer service atmosphere that used to be the norm in the airline industry of a few years ago when beverages, snacks (even meals), and a complimentary carry on and checked bag were free of charge (or at least not treated as extras for a price). That level of service demonstrates value for the customer and encourages repeat travel, even company loyalty. Please consider bringing this back in the context of your business.

great crew who were welcoming and helpful

Jan 7, 2020

The price is pretty cheap and that is fantastic, but honestly other than the friendly staff, flying frontier has little else to offer to make the flight a positive experience.
