I didn't know there were planes where seats do not recline, but this was one. It is not mentioned on their website, so unless somebody tips you, there is no way of knowing that only rows 1 and 13 have reclining seats. Very uncomfortable, especially on a night flight.
Im 6ft 235pds and fit snug but comfortably in the aisle seat. Big bonus, these seats do not recline so no issues with that. I feel that anyone larger than me should upgrade their seat.
2D is a 'stretch' seat. Compared to standard seat, it has extra legroom and a regular sized tray table. No entertainment screen or charging station. Overhead bin above seat is reserved for row 1. Service for food/drink was very good (pay for it), and lots of trash runs.
The new A320 Neo's are pretty yet Frontier chose the most uncomfortable seats that not only do not recline, but are extremely thin and poorly designed. Bring neck pillows, cushions and expect to have some back pain much after disembarking...
Row 14 on this aircraft is behind a "Stretch" row. Because of this, the seats in row 14, while standard seating, have full-size tray tables, unlike the remainder of the standard seating, thus making them desirable. (Most standard seats just have the tablet trays.)
Bulkhead seats are awful - worse than run-of-the-mill seats when considering legroom. You CANNOT stretch your legs in the Frontier front row. This airline (unlike United) places a hard, solid, wall between the first row of seats and the doorway. Unreal. This could have been a premium seat but Frontier chose to ruin sears 1A, 1B, and 1C. Beware.
There's nothing wrong with Frontier Airlines. If you want a little more room, pay for the stretch seating. Row 1 also has plenty of room before the bulk head, but if you like to stretch your legs under the seat in front of you move back a row or two. It's true that in the front rows that if you have to store your carryons overhead that they may be several row behind you. However, no one had to wait to deplane as bags were easily passed forward. Also, pack your own snacks and grab a bottle or two of water/soda in the airport and you don't have to worry about paying for them on the plane.
Stretch seat has recline. But so did the one in front. Frontier now charges for all food and drink - even in this section. Water is extra cost. Annoyingly you pay with a reader that requires you to hit a button. Southwest has the right idea: just scan your card and return it. Worse yet they allow a tip line just like a restaurant. But stretch seat upgrade includes 1 checked bag and 1 carry on so I always use it if I fly Frontier. For old timers (circa 80s and earlier) stretch seating is exactly the same as coach seating compared to the "new normal" of being pinned in the seat unable to move at all.
Frontier is not a legacy carrier. It is a low cost/no-frills airline, and if you are expecting a lot, you will be disappointed. BUT- I fly with them all the time from Orlando and Tampa to Las Vegas because you can't beat the price. I have created my own memory foam seat cushion and lumbar support, and I am just fine on a 5 hr flight. (I can roll it up and it fits just fine in my backpack) If you have a short flight, the seats shouldn't be a problem though. I always pay for Stretch Seating and the legroom is fantastic, seats also recline. Don't sit in the front row, though- the bulkhead limits your legroom (defeating the purpose of paying for Stretch Seating). Other than that, the planes ride quite nicely, are quiet, and there's not much else to complain about. If you're looking for luxury seats and complimentary snacks- fly another airline.
This was a bare bones basic seat with no recline. I was able to see out both the window directly to the side of me and the window directly behind me. Noise level was low, overhead cooling works great, overhead lighting is super bright. Bring a snack and you will be fine if it's no more than than a 3 hour flight as the seats are tight. If you are a big person, get a different seat style as you won't be comfortable.
This flight had their new slim line interior. Non stretch seats have NO RECLINE, NO ADJUSTABLE HEAD REST, & a teeny-tiny tray ledge that is all but unusable. There is no longer any TV anywhere on board. In fact, there's no power nor wifi either. The new slim line seats are fairly uncomfortable for longer flights. It really is bare-bones transportation getting you from point A to point B.
The drop down tray was about 6 inches by 10 inches. too small for anything to set on. The storage under seat, was just big enough for an iPad in its case, which they wanted to charge extra for. If I can find other airlines that is close to the schedule I need, Frontier will be history.
Frontier has downgraded all seats to very lightweight, thin, miserably uncomfortable torture devices. No seats recline. No in-flight entertainment, no free coffee or water or anything else, regardless of ticket class or milage club membership status. Advise travelors to bring their own seat cushions and lumbar support.
Bulkhead seats have restricted legroom. Rows 2&3 are much better,your feet can go under the seat in front of you.
