Frontier Win

You can fairly say I have been overly harsh on Denver based airline Frontier Airlines.

Recently, they added the AirFairs program, which is a great step back in the right direction.

With AirFairs, the choice is yours! You select the level of flexibility and amenities you want. Check out your options below. It’s as simple as one, two, three.

They restored almost every benefit that was there before the “gas is $4 a gallon and we need to cut all costs” freakout.  Great to see.

I’m back to going out of my way to fly Frontier.  They are hands down the best airline out of Denver (I base this on convenience, on time percentage and legroom).

Jeremy wrote a better post than this about this topic.

But then today I noticed they got rid of a Summit benefit of flying the day before or after standby, without emailing the Summit members.

2 steps forward, 1 step back.

Let’s keep going forward Frontier.

  • I have had similar experience with Frontier. And JetBlue.

    Incidentally this is a reason to NOT get credit cards with airline miles — you never know which airline will end up being better for you. Get the 1%-cash-back stuff instead and spend on whatever you want. Air travel is already nightmarish — the least you can do is bless yourself with a decent carrier.

    And you're right — if the airfares went up because of gas prices, and now prices are back down, are the airfares coming down? I guess you're pointing out the beginning of that perhaps? Hope so.
