I think this is an absolutely great feature.
I just checked in online for tomorrow morning's F9 flight 721 DCA-DEN, and, at the completion of checkin, it displayed an image of the tail of the A319 I'll be flying on along with "You will be flying on the Wolf!".
I think this is one of those little details that makes F9 a very pleasant airline to do business with.

They also put the same picture from the tail on the winglets. Therefore, you will be able to see the tail animal from your seat. I don't remember them announcing the animal on my tail at either DEN or FLL on my recent flights, however. I did like the new LiveTV movie channels. I had a blast watching "Pirates of the Caribbean" on a DEN-FLL flight, especially since I was taking a Caribbean cruise!

This must be a pretty recent development. I was on F9 about two weeks ago and didn't experience any of this.
I think it's a great idea. I wonder how many pax actually fly Frontier and never realize that there is a different animal on each of their planes, or that there is even an animal at all back there! (If pax don't know how many engines a plane has when they fly.....)
I was at IAH yesterday and saw the Mustang Horse A319 there. Just beautiful!

Having flown MDW-DEN over a dozen times on the A318/19s, I've observed what passengers really notice are the animal portraits on the inboard side of the wing fences, which match the tail portrait. On one flight in an A319, the wing fence was blank for some reason and the lady in the window seat was quite disappointed!
