    Why should non-pet owners have to put up with pets?

    The airlines are making money from my discomfort, If you charge $75 for someone else to bring a pet that I have to tolerate, I want the $75. At least put all the pets together in the back of the plane.

    Frontier has definitely gone to the dogs

    Big dog seated in 1F, Smaller dog seated in 3F (humans under them). Poor me sitting in 2E and nose starts running as big dog watches me eat through the gap in the seat. Dogs take first place with Frontier. Have fun. I won't be using this carrier again. Pretend it is a service animal - power to you.

    Super Friendly and understanding

    I flew with my Emotional Support dog (mini-schnauzer) for the first time, and I was incredibly nervous about the carrier situation since their under seat area is a little smaller than other airlines. However, the flight attendant told me I could keep him out on my lap. Every flight attendant that came by was incredibly kind and friendly toward me and Shaker, both on the way there and back. It was such a relief to be able to have him on my lap the entire trip! I'm hopeful that my next trip with Frontier will be equally as positive! (side note: This was just luck, but the couple next to me was also incredibly understanding of my having him out, and even offered to hold him when I went to the bathroom so he wouldn't have to go back in the carrier!)

    I have flown with Frontier before, so I somewhat know what to expect: small seating space, paying for your seat, etc. I called and talked to two different people. It was confirmed by both people that guinea pigs may fly for $75. This is the only airline that will allow them to fly in cabin without being checked in. The only problem? I have never talked to anyone with experience in flying with a guinea pig. I am embarking on new territory.

    Unfortunately, I did not have a positive experience flying Frontier for the first time with my emotional support dog (a small pug). The carrier couldn't be pushed under the seat all the way (never the case with other airlines) and the flight attendant kept insisting that it be pushed in. She even manually tried to shift it around herself and she was NOT gentle about it. Afterwards, in a condescending tone, she told me that having my carrier/dog there was "illegal" which I did not appreciate considering he was my emotional support animal.

    Just spoke to them and you can just show your pet when you arrive you got to have it in a carrier that is no bigger the 8x14 and able to stand in natural position and lay down in natural position. $75 per pet. Even if it is service dog.

    Airports and Airlines are generally covered under the American Disabilities Act when it comes to service dogs the air carrier access Act covers disabled person's rights from what I've read. Either way they can't deny you morning, although I have been denied before. It is very discouraging and inconsistent and I have seen a lot of discrimination in this respect.

    I plan to pick up a puppy in Seattle and bring him back to Denver. The only price shown is $150 on the web which suggests a round trip with a pet. Tried to call and got in "hold", "what do you want recording", finally gave up and went United.

    I was looking at flights to Denver and Frontier boast "low fares done right" when I went to book it was very easy to add a pet to my ticket, and very reasonable at $75 each way. However with all the other add ons like carry-ons I began to wonder about extra fees. I decided to call and after a 30 minute wait time I got someone that said that I would have to pay again for my pet as a carry on because a pet doesn't count as a personal item like on other airlines. So I don't see how this is "low fares done right if I have to pay twice to fly.

    I'm looking for a flight to go back home to Las Vegas. There's one small problem though, I need to bring my doggy. I can't leave her behind. She's 50 pounds, is she allowed on ANY flight? She's a catahoula cure, medium size. I'm new to bringing pets on a flight. If anyone could answer my question it would be greatly appreciated.

    Inconsiderate Flight Attendants

    We have flown many times with our small Jack Russell with various airlines and the flight attendants are usually very accommodating. Our most recent trip with Frontier left us overwhelmed and unhappy. As soon as arriving on the plane the flight attendant made a point to yell to us from the middle of the plane that the dog must remain zipped into the case the entire flight. Other airlines have allowed us to unzip the top of the case while in flight (pets must be zippered in and under the seat during take off and landing). And this allows the air to circulate and for us to comfort and give refreshment to a stressed animal. They were very unkind when we tried to explain.

    I am about to book a flight for my wife and myself to Florida to visit family. We are going to try to bring our Yorkie with us in the cabin. Does anyone know if they are very strict on the exact size of the carrier?

    My friends just flew to FL w/ their young kids. There were 3 big dogs in seats in the cabin. This is dangerous and ludicrous. I am a frequent flyer of Frontier, but I will now be changing carriers.

    I travelled with my 19 lb shih tsu mix from Nashville to Spokane and back a few weeks later. Not only did they allow my big soft sided carrier, they also gate checked my dogs stroller. I put her in the stroller in the airport on the layover so she can stand up and move around. They were nice at the counter and at the gate they didnt even notice I had a dog. My dog is quiet-never barks. Most everyone around me didnt even realize I had a dog. And for anyone who complains about allergies, I have had allergic reactions to people's stinky perfume, B.O., cigarette stink, etc. My dog is groomed and way better smelling than a lot of people!

    I need to send my animals by plane, which costs a LOT of money. But I can't even get a real person on the phone. So i can't even make a resrvation if I wanted to. Very bad first impression.

    Frontier does allow 1 pet in cabin per passenger and 2 additional if needed as cargo. They are one of the few airlines that allow you to fly with your bully breed as long as the weather permits. Many others put full embargo's during the summer. I flew my last bulldog with them twice and he was taken care of. One employee heard him yelping when he saw me at a transfer and offered to take him out to go to the restroom. I'm booked to fly them again with my dog and cats and hope to have another great experience.

    Frontier has never not allowed Service Dogs on board the aircraft. We evel allow "emotional Support" animals to travel on baord the aircraft with the proper documentation. As for other dogs, you can purchase a seat on frontier for a fee or place the animal in cargo for a fee. As with all airlines, pets in cargo are subject to weather and weight restrictions for that particular flight. I have a dog that travels with me on Frontier in the cabin all the time.

    XXXXXXXX to be accompanied by his Service Dog in the cabin of the aircraft, in accordance with the Air Carrier Access Act (49 U.S.C. 41705 and 14 C.F.R. 382). There are some additional guidlines that must be met but if you meet the legal definition of being disabled then Frontier Airlines CANNOT RESTRICT YOU FROM TAKING THE SERVICE DOG INTO THE CABIN!

    Article is not totally correct. Please check ADA guidelines as a Service Dog is allowed inside the cabin with the handler and they are not permitted to charge any additional fees for the Service Dog.

    I have a mini schnauzer, he is not small enough to fit in the cabin. We have traveled 4 trips with my dog and Frontier. Every time it seems that they really care. One instance, the lady at the gate double-checked to make sure my dog had enough water by going outside and giving him water personally through his cage before they put him on the plane! The pilot then assured me that "Banjo" was fine and hanging out with Jay the parrot! ;) This was really the most amazing thing ever!!
