Frontier Elite FAQs

Frontier Elite benefits state that I will still get an advanced seat assignment. What does that mean?

As a Frontier Elite member, you will receive a complimentary STANDARD or SELECT seat assignment when you book your flight.  You will be eligible for a free upgrade to STRETCH seating when you check-in for your flight.

I don’t see checked bags as a Frontier Elite benefit. If I’m a Frontier Elite member, will I still receive free checked bags?

Frontier Elite members will receive a complimentary carry-on bag, but will no longer receive free checked bags. Remember, as an EarlyReturns® member, you have been automatically enrolled in the Discount Den which offers a $5 discount on checked bag fees.

Will Frontier Elite members receive waived change fees?

Change fees are not an included benefit for Frontier Elite members. If you would like a fully refundable fare, we offer our Classic Plus fare.

I’m currently a Summit member. Will my traveling companions continue to receive some of the benefits I receive (i.e., complimentary seat assignments, free bags)?

Frontier Elite benefits are only available to the Frontier Elite member.

You keep changing the benefits for elite travelers. Does this mean that Frontier is planning to end the elite traveler program altogether?

No, we are not planning to change the elite tier structure any further at this time. 


Why is Frontier charging a fee to use my EarlyReturns® miles? I thought miles were supposed to be for free flights.

As long as you book 180 days or more in advance of your flight, there is no fee to redeem your miles.  Remember, Frontier Elite members and Frontier Airlines MasterCard holders have the award redemption fee waived.


Why should I still give Frontier my business? What’s the benefit of being a Frontier frequent flyer anymore?

Flying Frontier offers you ultra low fares which makes air travel even more affordable!  You can expect more choice from us and the ability to optimize your travel experience for the comfort and value you seek.  Additionally, being an EarlyReturns® member allows you to accrue miles that you can use towards award travel (subject to fees/taxes from $5.60) or partner awards.  Plus, we offer a competitive elite status which offers additional benefits like advanced seating and a free carry-on.
