I just booked LAX-DEN-IAH and back with Frontier. I am real excited to fly this airline as I never have before. Unfortunately, I only have a 50 minute layover in Denver on the way to IAH and a 45 minute layover on the way back. I would have liked more time to check out the airport because I have never been there either. My question is if Frontier's flights all operate out of the same concourse because my layovers seem really short for such a big airport. Also, what are some general opinions about flying with Frontier? How do you guys like them?

In 1957, after I got out of the Navy, I drove my 1954 Nash from NAS Moffett to New York where my parents lived. I had applied for many airlines, and hit them as I drove across the USA in Jan. 1957.
Among them was Frontier, out of DEN. I liked the idea of living there, and was warmly recieved by the Frontier Chief Pilot. He gave me a jump seat pass to fly the trips of my choice. I took a pairing that went South to ELP, then North to Cheyenne.
Interesting. All in a DC-3, over the Rockies, through the WX, and back to DEN. Starting pay was $250/month. I had been making $600 as a LTjg. No Thank You, Sir. Off the MKC for TWA, which hired me in March.
If I recall, the Frontier pilots got a screwing from UAL. They thought they'd merge, instead Frontier went under.
