DENVER, COLORADO -- I am writing with much disappointment. My husband and myself are both disabled. We totally enjoyed our trip from MPLS TO DENVER THEN AGAIN FROM DENVER TO PORTLAND OREGON. My husband said, “this is the airline we will use from now on. Very pleased. Then on the way from Denver to MPLS we had a big problem. First of all I thought the stewards were there to help the customers to keep them comfortable and content. On the previous flight from Portland to Denver I had asked for a full can of Diet Pepsi and they said NO PROBLEM. You see my diabetes had been causing me a great deal of problem on our vacation. Blood sugars in the 3-400’s which is dangerously high. The problem started from the get go. Apparently my husband did not’t arrange our carry on items in the right way. I have a Cpap machine, which cost $3000 and he has a Bi-pap machine which is $8000. He put his jacket by his to pad it so to speak. She snapped at us and said to hold your jacket she then put his Bi pap in front where it got slammed when the overhead was slammed shut. I explained why we did it nd she mocked me by saying "reeeer," like a cat. Then we watched another gentleman put his jacket in the same compartment and she slammed the door again, she said nothing to him about his jacket going there, in fact she looked at me and said she was NOT picking on me. Unfortunately the front of the bi-pap was broken. Which is not even my biggest complaint but still part of the whole bigger problem. My husband has prosthetic knees and said I have to put my leg out, “hope I don’t trip her.” Apparently she heard it differently and said we were TRYING to trip her, TOTALLY NOT TRUE. They checked to make sure everything was under front of seat which my purse was, the same way it was on all the flights. Then came around with drinks. I had to keep pulling my purse out as I felt strange with my blood sugars running in low 400’s so had to keep checking it and giving myself more insulin. If your diabetes is high you tend to be extremely thirsty. So when she came around I had my 14 pills to take and was very thirsty. I asked for a full can of diet Pepsi and she very disrespectfully said to me flat out, "you will get a glass and NO MORE." The people sitting across from us all had full cans. I tried to continue to explain to her that I needed more to take my pills because she filled it with ice and only added maybe 2/3 full of soda. Not enough that is for sure. As I am trying to talk to her she ignores me and asks my daughter what she would like. My daughter is 11 and is very sensitive. She was upset at how we were being treated and started crying because she has seen me go into diabetic coma before and was scared. I told Lana she was being very unprofessional by ignoring me and she just continued and I asked her name and said I was planning on doing a complaint. She said sure, it is Lana and make sure to include that your husband was trying to trip us……I could not even respond, she was being incredibly rude. She continued to tell the other lady with the cart to ignore us..when I was asking her for water or something. She told her "don't antagonize them, they are not worth it." Is that how your train your people? I could not take my pills and ended up very sick once landing and had trouble all night. I really don’t believe that this is your practice as we had wonderful stewards on all the other trips we had. I want some kind of response about this issue. If I do not get some kind of resolution then I will be contacting my lawyer attorney general, going to all newspapers, Internet blogs etc. I will be sure to take it as far as I need to as I feel we were treated with no respect or dignity and it effected my health problems. I do not think she should have treated us this way.. And that still did not end then horrible ordeal. Before landing the other steward came by and told me my purse was not far enough under the seat in front of me. I had it in the same position on all flights and wanted to have it at quick grab if needed for emergency injection. She told me if I did not push it up farther she would have to take it from me and find a spot in the over head. I told her since she wanted to ignore me that I had had enough and to go bother somebody else. She said, "if we crash your daughter will be trapped!" which is a crock and made my daughter cry and be very scared as there was some turbulence. I understand you have to have rules and that certain things have to be followed but I also know that people with disabilities should not be treated indifferent. I felt like she was copping an attitude right away for whatever reason. I would appreciate a quick response to this letter or I will do as I promised! Lana should get reprimanded for breaking the bipap machine front and for her total disregard our well being. Simple common courtesy would have been expected.
FORT WAYNE, INDIANA -- A door to door Frontier representative offered to reduce our bill. She did by getting rid of half of the TV stations we watch! Calls to Frontier techs transferred me to billing. After a half an hour, the employee said he got it straightened out "but needed to have his supervisor" OK it. Nothing changed. Another call to another billing person, promising to resolve the problem with his supervisors OK. Nothing happened. Calls to the 1st employee's extension went unanswered. Another call, another employee who supposedly hand carried the order to a technician to fix the problem. The technician "wasn't in, but they will get the order in the morning."
I am about ready to drive to the Frontier office and ask for the head honcho who has ignored all requests for a signature so this can get resolved.
KEYSER, WEST VIRGINIA -- Frontier is one of those companies that know you have no allternatives and they take advantage of it. We started 3 years ago and things went downhill from day one. The internet service BARELY scratches 1.5 Mb and that's on a high note. A high note that is like a legendary once in a lifetime note. The regular speed is so low going with one of those unidentified connections you pick up is faster and they refuse to admit they even have a problem.
The service end fee is ungodly and its not worth it. If you have ANY bloody alternatives then take them. Stay away from this company.
IDAHO -- On a calling plan that was fine until this year. Frontier started billing me late fees on my calling plan, they said they could not give me an exact monthly bill because taxes change month to month. They said the only way to correct this was to let them do their auto deduction from my bank. Well this was a flat lie. They personally changed the taxes a bit to gain a late fee.
I complained two months ago to the FCC about this practice. My phone bill is supposed to be set at a certain price every month for unlimited long distance.
Frontier knows I live in a rural area with no cell phone service. They stared this scam this year, before this my bill was set for the same amount every month.
OWOSSO, MICHIGAN -- Set appointment time for installation no show/ no call. After being on ignore for several minutes, transferred numerous times. Then was told had to call different number. When we got a hold of them, we were told we were set up for self install and a box was mailed to us. We received no box. And why would they have set a time with us for if we were doing it ourselves???
Had to argue with them to get someone out to self install. Then he came with a lousy attitude towards us. Next salesmen from Frontier came to house to sell us internet. We told them we already had it, they said they could beat the rate. We spent over an hour with them while they made calls. Now our bill is higher than it was originally. No explanation.
JEDDO, MICHIGAN -- I am so fed up with this company. They have not sent me a bill in 4 months. I have to contact them every month and see how much my bill is. They have lost 2 checks I mailed out to pay the phone bill. I have been forced to issue a stop payment twice. I have contacted them dozens of times about this problem, But it is the same CRAP every month. I am now coming to the conclusion, That this is the most frustrating phone company I have ever dealt with. We have had problems with our internet blacking out also. They tell us our bill has been lowered, And I find out it is actually raised. I am going to dump this company, As soon as I find an alternative.
COOKEVILLE, TENNESSEE -- We have had phone service from Frontier in Cookeville, Tn. for last 6 years and most of the time after a heavy rain the line gets loud static so it is nearly impossible to hear anyone. I put in a Magic Jack on my computer which I love (no more long distance charges and it becomes my backup line after it rains).Service techs out so many times I have lost count. Some have said part of line needs to be replaced but they don't want to do it probably because of cost issue. Most customer service reps. unhelpful at the least and sometimes just unpleasant. Now DSL goes out when it rains as well as regular line with static so now I really have a problem. They say they can't fix line unless it is acting up when service tech is here but they always send them after 1-2 days and line working when tech finally gets here. Would suggest you find out who provides phone service in area you plan to move to because I will NEVER again move into area serviced by Frontier!!!!
WILMINGTON, OHIO -- Customer service told me they switched the e-mail and combined with Yahoo to increase profit. He said so many people search Yahoo from the Frontier e-mail home page it only made sense to profit from that. Well not to me. I can get a Yahoo e-mail for free. My e-mail home page is full of ads now. I should pay less for Internet service if Yahoo e-mail is what I get. I hate the switch and I'm leaving Frontier.
NEW YORK -- This has been a nightmare since the first time they called me to switch to them!! I purchased a bundle from them. After the Dish was hooked-up they lost my work order. Start all over again. New price.. MORE. Did not show up for install of phone or internet..Called customer service. New price..More I told them I wanted out of agreemen To get out of agreement it would be $420.00 early ter. of the Dish. Excalation Dept. said they would help me. New price...MORE. Would not call me back to help me. Their Personal Call Attendant Dept. refuses to return my phone calls even though they told me to call them after I received my first bill. I made two calls with no reply. This is the worse service I have ever had in 40 yrs. of doing business. Frontier phone does what they want and they don't care if you like it or not..they have you locked into an aggrement that will cost you a fortune to get out of.
ROCHESTER, NEW YORK -- I canceled my phone service in November 2011 switching back to Verizon. Frontier bought out Verizon's residential phone service, so we switched back to our original home phone carrier. Frontier charged $156.05 for an early termination fee for a contract I (nor my husband) signed or agreed to. I have made 5 calls to Frontier customer service in which each time I was told they would sent the information to the account depart to have the early termination fee waived. I received another bill 2 weeks ago. At that point, I called and requested that my checking account information be removed from the account to prevent an automated deduction from my checking account. Today, $156.05 was debited by Frontier from my checking account. I was placed on hold for 25 minutes before calling back I received the same explanation of being account being reviewed. After 5 phone calls to Frontier's customer service department since December 2011, this is still not resolved. Each representative explained the process takes 3-5 days. Now, they have withdrawn the money from my account after I specifically called and asked them to remove my checking account information and not automatically withdraw the early termination fee.
