Just wanted to know if anyone has flown the Tucson to Denver route or vice versa on Frontier Airlines. Just curious to know what it's like. I'll be heading to Denver from Tucson in March.
Thanks,

Daniel_T

I have never flown Frontier, but how different can it be? You wait in a lot of lines and have a degrading experience with security. You get in an uncomfortable seat and are bored for a couple of hours, unless you pay five dollars (on Frontier) to watch TV. You arrive at your destination and wait half an hour or more for your baggage. That particular flight is amost always late, BTW, so plan on more waiting.

That's a very good description of the flying "experience" nowadays, but I'll have to correct one sentence.

You MIGHT arrive at your destination and you can only HOPE your baggage arrived with you.

Sad to break the news, Daniel, but FLYING is FLYING nowadays . . . . IT STINKS!

Just give yourself plenty of time and include either books or magazines and anything else to occupy your time.

I sympathize. I flew from Tucson to Denver (not Frontier) a few years ago for work, and it was the scariest flight ever!!! Since then I border on panic attacks in a plane. Not good. That's where my old pal lorazepam steps in.

Sorry, guess I should have clarified. There was a weird weather pattern going on and we were in a smaller airplane and my seat was all the way in the back. It was like riding a bucking horse... lots of turbulance and drops. The landing was really rough. Also, this wasn't long after 9/11 and there was a French couple arguing with the check-in person over whether or not they could bring the gas tank from their camp stove on the plane with them.

oh. I see. I'm prepared for the turbulence. Denver is a rough place to fly into. Almost the same as Vegas. I've flown into Vegas numerous times and it's always fairly bumpy. Some of the worst turbulence i've ever experienced was out of Vegas. This July as a matter of fact.

I done this flight a few times-it is usually only about 1/2 full-a pretty pleasant flight. BTW I think the Tuscon airport is great-easy parking and hassle free.
