The return flight on Sunday 6/23 is listed at 7:45 am! OMG YIKES! A 4:45 am DME sounds awful. We haven't flown out that early since 2007 and I vowed to never do it again. What to do...what to do

I keep asking them to become a resort participating airline...so hopefully they will soon, otherwise I may book a different airline back to PHL instead.
Congratulations! Unfortunately it won't fit in with our plans right now but glad you were able to find a great deal. We flew down on Frontier in Oct. and it was a great flight. Then in Dec. we flew down again (Frontier) and flew USAir back (through Charlotte) because of the nonparticipating part. My husband uses a wheelchair at the airport and dragging our luggage on the ME bus and then through the airport is just not doable so we opted for USAir so that we could check our bags at the resort. When I got home I wrote to them again about RAC and how I had opted to fly another airline for the return flight just because of this. Haven't heard anything though. Again, congratulations, just hope if we keep urging them to participate it will have some influence!

This was another reason we opted for USAir on the return flight. Our flight left at 10:25am so not a really early ME depart time. When we flew back in Oct. on Frontier we actually took a limo to the airport (traveling with other family members) so we didn't leave 3 hrs. earlier than flight like ME does. Worked out well for us.

We are getting ready to book for next month at $59 per person. For 3 of us it's going to cost $360. Cheaper then southwest and more convenient for us!

Use the promo code CHOICE before 1/10 and you save 10% on classic fares and 5% on the cheapo fares.

It may not be their choice. Southwest was not participating for a long time because their reservation system was not compatable. Airportbags is the service provider, they may not want to work with Frontier to make their systems compatable because they are not that big.

Here is their website if you want to contact them:

For the poster above who mentioned hating to wait in line at MCO to check bags....try going outside to curbside....the lines are ALWAYS much, much shorter than inside at the counter. It may cost you a few bucks to tip the skycap.....but, IMO it's worth it to avoid waiting in those awful lines inside. We rarely check bags anymore (it's just the two of us these days since our kids are all adults now) but, on the few occasions we do......I head right outside to the curb.
