My only criticism is that my boyfriend and I weren’t seated together. There were other areas of the plane with two spots so not sure why that happened.

Good flight

Mar 8, 2018

NO USB PORTS😡 :(. Excessive charges for carry-ons, seat selection, and checked bags.All disguised by the low-low ticket price. C’mon, make all that simpler! Up the ticket price and charge for baggage. It’s confusing to go through d buy all these options! Also, why was a round-trip ticket made into two separate transactions with different conf. codes?! Would not use Frontier again for these reasons.
