Killer Diller Low Airfares are coming to Sacramentio

After a five year absence Frontier Airlines is returning to Sacramento International August 1.   With four week daily flights to Denver and Las Vegas beginning August 12th.

When Frontier left Sacramento, they were a discount Airline, similar to Southwest.

What is returning is a different airline an “Ultra Discount Carrier”  their fares are almost much lower than Southwest. The trade off is. Everything thing else is extra and they can add up quickly. Bring any backpack or carry on is $30. If you don’t prepay there could be a five to ten dollar surcharge. In fact you may find surcharges on anything isn’t paid for in advance.

Learning Curve

Most people aren’t prepared for Spirit or Frontier. That’s why they along with Allegiant have the most customers complaints of nearly all the  other Airlines. Prepare yourself for non reclining hard seats. With small tray tables. If you over 5 10 Its gonna be tight. If you are a wide body. It could be complete agony as the seats are smaller. Frontier is bare bones. Its gonna be crowded and uncomfortable. However if you pack light and prepare yourself for angry co passengers. The low, low, low fares might be worth it.  I know someone who flys Frontier exclusively.  She understands the culture and takes advantage of the airlines super low prices.

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
