Avoid Booking Frontier Airline Tickets

Avoid booking air tickets on Frontier Airlines thru Orbitz or other on line web site. You may end up with cheap tickets but NOT a bargain! You may end up with their "Basic" level tickets which do not allow you to get a seat assignment and charge you for carry on bag in addition to charges for checked bags. You can call them and pay the fee to upgrade your seat in order to get an assigned seat but you will be stuck paying for your checked bag. It might cost you more than another airline if you have to pay these fees.

Yet another post stating what has been repeated over and over again in this forum. Book direct with the airline, not via a 3rd party website.

This has come up on this forum before. The Frontier policy is fairly new and is designed to encourage passengers to book directly with the airline.

A little research, like visit the airline's website, would have found this information. Blindly booking through a third party because it's cheap (ah that word has such magical powers) will land you in the situation you found yourself.

And btw the title of your thread is misleading.
