    Here we are again... Frontier! Next up, a couple of United trips which were interesting, to say the least. Make sure you tune in for those... especially the premium transcontinental flight in Business 😬

      One question to avoid the bag check fee at the gate how will I know my bag is too big I have a four wheel bag but it's not very big but it is a little wide is there a way to find out bag size before the trip or is it better to go up to the counter and ask them if the bag is too big or the right size I definitely need to know I might fly this airline to go see my dad if I get enough PTO hours and if my boss approves my time off I'm very curious and definitely need to know

      I enjoy your videos. I enjoy objectivity in your reports. I am eager to see a report on Air Baltic route from Riga to Abu Dhabi which is the longest route in the A220 at this moment. I'd like to see how this plane performs in a 6 hour flight, in a two class configuration. Is the passenger experience better than the one than of the A320 or the 737. Is this plane a real game changer? Is it really that flexible to be considered a substitute for the A320 in low demand medium haul routes?

    So this is a long review but here's my experience this past Wednesday.

    I had a flight from Baltimore to Denver to Ontario (CA). I left Baltimore around 11 AM and got to Denver around 1 to 2-ish. I had a 6 hour layover and was set to takeoff around 8:40 PM. We boarded the plan and for some reason just sat their for like 20 minutes. We were all wondering what was going on and then suddenly we started to smell a horrible smell which to me smelled like gasoline. They told everyone to get off the plane while they "fixed" the problem. We were taken back to the gate and got off the plane and waited for about 30 minutes. We were about to re-board the plane when suddenly one of the flight attendants was seen being escorted off the plane in a wheelchair nearly unconscious. We were told she had passed out from the fumes. We ended up having to wait another 30 minutes for a another flight attendant to arrive to replace her.

    So for some reason once we were ready to re-board they made everyone turn in their boarding passes so they could re-print them yet they were the EXACT same boarding passes, nothing on them changed. This process took another 15-20 minutes. So we get back on the plane finally and again we're sitting on the plane not moving for about 20 minutes when suddenly the pilot gets on the speaker and says the plane still has an issue and instructs everyone to exit the plane. At this point of course everyone is furious and over it. We all stand up to exit and then the pilot say "No please take your seats, we're gonna try to fix the problem." but at this point everyone wants to get off but they close the doors on us. So basically they locked us in broken plane and wouldn't let us leave. We take our seats and sit their for 10 minutes just to be told they can't fix and tell us to exit the plane again but then they tell us what we were smelling after the first time we had boarded was actually the plane smoking from the back. HOW DID THEY LET US GET BACK ON A SMOKING PLANE? But wait not done.

    So we get off the plane and they instruct everyone to go to customer service. So a giant angry mob is rushing to customer service and when we get their a fight breaks out, that security has to break up so chaos ensues for a bit. Once that's over another Frontier flight had just landed and so they say they're going to clean the plane and ready it for takeoff so we can get on that one. We wait another 20 minutes or so for them to get it ready and then have to re-print the EXACT same boarding passes again, which adds another 10 or so minutes and then we finally get back on the plane. Once on board again we're sitting there not moving until the pilot comes on the speaker and tells us we can't take off because the planes main computer failed and we have to wait for a mechanic to come fix it. At this point nobody even reacts we're just that over it. So we wait for the mechanic to come fix it and he leaves but we're still not moving. We sit their for a full hour I am not kidding The pilot then again comes on and says well the main computer is fixed however because a repair was made on the plane a report of the repair has to be sent to confirm the repair but the computer used to send that report just went down too and now we have to wait on another mechanic to fix the computer so we can send a report that the last mechanic fixed the other computer....I cannot make this up. All in all I was supposed to leave Denver at 8:40 PM and arrive in Ontario at 10 PM, I instead enduring this nightmare ended up leaving Denver at 2:36 AM the next morning.and arrived in Ontario at 4:30 AM spending a total of about 14-15 hours in the airport and actually spent more on the ground inside the plane waiting for 2 mechanics than I spent in the air once we finally took off 5 hours late. Like.....how does this happen?

    I wanted to book a flight with frontier the flight started at $49 but by the time it got to book it it came up to over $400!?!? This happened several times with different routes all domestic flights. I have yet to see a flight at the price advertised. Small carry on and just basic flight.

    This is the down fall of real Airline service in America ... this is just as bad as Allegiant Air (AKA , SCARE AIR) and if you think you are going to get out of that aluminum cigar tube in an accident , think again, you are crammed in year after year ,closer and closer like sardines , it’s a joke. If you can , fly a real Airline and fly first class if you want a higher chance of survivability by getting out first

    I also was impressed by Frontier Airline. It's the Greyhound in the sky. If you want to check a bag it's going to cost you fifty bucks compared to a carry-on which is free. My daughter and I flew from Detroit to Raleigh round way for $129. You cannot beat that.

  • Christopher Pericolosi

    I flew Frontier from STL to DEN a few years ago. On my return trip, i happened to be sitting the row behind the rearmost escape exit, on the 321. As im sitting there, i noticed that the flight attendant had not armed the emergency exit door. Im a former flight attendant and know when its not armed. I casually mentioned to the FA that it wasnt armed, and she might want to fix it. She was on her phone playing some game the entire time, plus when i told her this, she gave me a dirty look, and pretty much told me to shut up becausr i dudnt know what i was talking about... needless to say, about 15 minutes later, the captain announced that one of the emergency exit doors was giving a false positive (meaning it wasnt armed) and if they couldnt fix it, wed all have to get off the aircraft. Besides this, all the flight attendants were seriously rude, and the one FA who id told about the door made every effort to both ignore me, and make my trip miserable. Ill never ever fly Frontier again. When the passenger obviously is inconveniencing the crew, at the expense of MY safety, i will absolutely not fly with them. I did that job. And i NEVER made a passenger feel the way that flight attendant made me feel!!!

    Paul, I've not seen you do anything in Cuba. If you wouldn't mind, please head down there and do a Cubana Airlines flight from Havana to Santiago de Cuba and then take the Cuban railroad back to Havana. I'm planning this itinerary for January but I need someone to test it out for me. I hear they've just got 80 new rail cars from China last month. First class with AC and economy cars with ceiling fans. Thank you!

    You should have tried to fly Frontier to their main hub Denver International Airport. It's fun seeing all the animal fins moving around. Frontier has a pretty big fleet for such a small airline. Aviation enthusiasts sometimes like stop and take pics of the tails when the planes are lined up at the gates.

    Hey. I know you said frontier is great and all... but I flew frontier to Orlando once. My flight was uncomfortable and they crew seemed tired and annoyed with everyone minus two of the workers. They told us which baggage claim we were at, which changed 2 times, and when I got my bag the wheels had been broken. I had to buy a new bag.

    Frontier broke my heart when they stopped offering complementary hot chocolate chip cookies on their flights. It just wasn't the same ever again after that. They saved $.50 per airfare, but shot themselves in the head with that one.

    I only fly Frontier. I've never found cheaper fares. However, I hate their non-stretch seats in the back. The seats are so close together, it felt like my knees were up under my chin. I happily pay extra to sit up front and ease my claustrophobia.

    In the 1950s the Frontier Airlines 2-propeller DC-3 flight from Alamosa, Colorado to Denver tended to encounter violent updrafts or headwinds over the Rockies. The sturdy DC3s were tossed about so much that they earned the affectionate sobriquet of "The Vomit Comet".

      Depends when you purchase it. It will always be cheaper to buy tickets directly on Frontier's website and make both the seat and bag selections when you buy the tickets. I'm 6'2" and the stretch seating is well worth it and the last time I booked Frontier, I did select "The Perks" option.
