I can't speak highly enough of Frontier. I have never received poor service, the planes are comfortable, the food is quite tasty actually (I like the breadsticks).
They also carry a really large selection of beers... many quite good ones.
I know the anti-PTV crowd in here will say that for short US domestic sectors IFE is pointless, but obviously none of those people have ADD. The PTV goes a long way towards keeping me from jogging up and down the aisles.
Those are ex-DEN...coming from the east coast to DEN, the snack differs but usually isn't a wrap...lately on my East Coast-DEN flights it's been those fabulous breadsticks like Gigneil mentioned, sometimes they also offer little plastic wrappings of assorted snacks heading to DEN....
Service-wise, you will find that it goes above and beyond what you expect...definitely way better than any major in Y, and I also highly recommend the PTV's...they really make the flight fly right by (no pun intended)!
One thing I'm curious about though...MSY or other F9 people, do you have any stats on what the overall percentage of pax is that use the PTV's?

description: N920FR (cn 1997) I have been told by a few folks that my photos were the reason they decided to buy some tickets on FRONTIER and give us a try over the Denver alternative... Well hopefully this will sell a few more! Direct TV in every seat. Aircraft just cleaned and ready for the Red-Eye run to LGA as Flt. 518.

I flew Frontier last summer. I found their seats extremely comfortable, although I could have used a tad more legroom (but couldn't we all on all airlines?) The wrap sandwich was great on one leg and on the other, they gave us a snack pack with oreos and granola bars, etc. All free and all very good. I have also flown on their commuter service which is a perfect match, Frontier and Horizon both being some of my favorite airlines in the world.
