FWIW, if you fly them again I suggest not bothering to buy your seats until online check in. Chances are good you'll get decent seats and still be together without having to pay. We are rarely assigned seats all the way in the back. And if you check in and find you don't like your seats you can go back after online check in and add them at that time. Between my boyfriend and myself we fly them at least 10-12 times a year and haven't seen any automatic upgrades. But we also fly a popular route and flights are always full so there isn't much option to ask if we can move either.I am flying Frontier for the first time next week. I did purchase seats for my daughter and I to sit together, but just the $5 seats. There were a lot of seats available yesterday when I bought them...although I realize many people may not have chosen their seats. My question is will they "upgrade" us and allow us to sit closer to the front if, indeed, there are many available seats? or does Frontier not do that?
