I tend to fly with Southwest or Allegiant. What should I know ahead of time, if I were to book a flight with Frontier?

From what I understand, Frontier makes Spirit, Allegient, et al, look pretty damn good. Another poster on this forum, when visiting me last weekend, said this about Frontier: ´it was our worst nightmare, like flying in prison´ and ´would rather have taken a Greyhound bus from Cali to Jax´

I´m one of those who, when flying economy, doesn´t mind the difference between an ULCC, a LCC, or a regular old legacy carrier like DL UA AA....

BUT...the horror stories coming out of Frontier make me think: never, under any circumstances, fly them.

Wish I had better news, but I do trust this guys opinion (and I do work in the travel business - all my colleagues seem to say the same thing).

I flew Frontier back in August MCO-DEN for last minute work trip.   I had no issues, other than the slimline seats that many carriers are going to now days.  4 hrs in those seats is about all I can handle.   Other than that, knowing how an ULCC works I had no issues.  I did pay extra for the "works" which gives you a seat up front with a wider pitch and pays for your bags etc. 

It wasn't nearly as bad as I expect Allegiant to be.  Just my .02

I have a friend who flew Frontier from Fort Lauderdale to San Francisco area. No complaints and said he would do again. I believe domestic coach flights as it relates to service is not much different for all major airlines these days.
