Kids Fly Free?

While searching for fares I noticed the website says "Kids Fly Free", but then links to flyfrontier.com/kidsflyfree which is a broken link.

Where can I find more information on the dates for this offer?

There is a lot of "fine print" dates and flights are limited, no international flights, only one kid to an adult but still it's a pretty good deal.

It is discrimination. Just because you "have" a kid, you get a free companion. Frontier already lets children who have not paid for carry on bags get a free diaper bag and a free stroller.

I am sick of it. Parents should pay.

Any Discount Den member, then, should be able to bring a free companion.

Ages ago TWA had a kids fly free promo every February and March. IIRC if was offered for all domestic flights, one kid per paying adult. I don't remember whether is was coach only but back then FC fares were extremely high and almost no one bought them.

I have a trip from SEA to DEN and looked at this promo, itís $39 per ticket and as a family with 2 adults and 3 children we would essesntially get 2 free. After joining the Den, paying for copious amounts of ski bags and payment for a seat, it would be $350-400 for all 5 of us. Would be $450 or so with DL or AS, but we get free bags/seat assignments with them and they have more flights w better timing. Not sure saving at most $100 over 5 pax makes it a good deal.

I doubt if its actually classed as "discrimination"...I wasn't aware being childless made you a "protected class"... I don't have kids either...but these offers take nothing AWAY from me..... so I don't care.
Getting bent out of shape because some little extras are offered to others but NOT to you sounds like a recipe for unhappiness. Do you get annoyed when veterans are offered early boarding? Do you get annoyed when standing on a full train and the woman next to you gets offered a seat, and you do not?

Love how you did the math on this. Seeing on some other threads about this not on Flyertalk people saving way more than $100. Really depends on what you end up with. Does DL or AS count ski bags are normal checked bags? I know F9 does which has always been surprising to me. No oversized charge.

Actually, "familial status" IS a protected class. Similar to denying a hotel room (or airline seating) because someone "has" a child (and there is talk of about not permitting children in F class)

It has nothing to do with others getting certain seating courtesies....this is about me subsidizing someone else's child (their choice) when I have paid into the Club the same as them and do not receive the same benefit. I have been F9 Elite for two years and D Den for three, and yes, as a paid member, I should be able to take a free companion if another person can, and not simply base the benefit on familial status

You will notice the promotion does not require that the child traveling with you be your child. Thus, all members are being treated the same.

My wife and three kids (6, 8, and 12) are taking a trip this summer. If we buy an adult ticket for my wife and an adult ticket for one of the kids, the other two should be free, right? In other words, the two paid tickets just have to be adult fares, not actual adults?
