A month ago, Frontier Airlines announced an upcoming unlimited all-you-can-fly pass. And as of now, the details and prices have been revealed by the airline.
Frontier Airlines GoWild! All-You-Can-Fly Pass
Frontier’s GoWild! Pass is now available for purchase where you can fly unlimited starting May 2, 2023. Here are the full details of this unlimited flight pass.
The All-You-Can-Fly pass will cost US$599 per year but it will auto-renew at a cost of US$1,999, which I think is quite an outrageous pricing. There is a limited number of passes with the initial pricing so if you are interested, I’ll recommend you go for it.
Next, when you purchased the pass, then for each flight, you’ll pay US$0.01 in airfare plus taxes, fees, and charges at the time of booking. But keep in mind that Frontier Airlines is a low-cost carrier so pretty extras on the flight such as baggage and seat selections will cost you more than the ticket itself.
There are also nearly 60 days of blackout dates which are:
- 2023: May 25, 26, 29; June 29, 30; July 1-5, 8, 9; August 31; September 1, 4; October 5, 6, 9; November 18, 22, 24-27; December 16, 17, 22-24, 26-31;
- 2024: January 1, 15; February 15, 16, 19; March 3, 10, 15-17, 22-24, 29-31; April 5-7, 12-14.
Here are some of the benefits of GoWild! pass:
- An unlimited number of flights
- Flights are available 300+ days a year
- Access to all U.S. destinations, including Puerto Rico
- Travel that will keep your miles from expiring
- One low annual price for pass access to 12 months of travel
- Get confirmed bookings the day before flight departure
Frontier Airlines GoWild! Pass Destinations
When Frontier first announced this pass, it stated the pass will cover all the destinations Frontier flies but that seems to have changed. The flight pass will only cover all U.S. Destinations, including Puerto Rico only.
Earning Miles Or Elite Status
Unfortunately, this pass will not be eligible to earn either miles or elite status on the Frontier Miles program. But existing Frontier Miles elite will receive the benefits according to their tier level.
Is The Pass Worth It
I wouldn’t say the pass is not worth it but at the same time, I think the pass is not worth it to those who do not have super flexible travel plans or schedules. The reason behind this is first you can only book the ticket one day before departure, and this still does not guarantee when seats are full.
Also, you need to consider how much applicable taxes and fees will cost. Frontier Airlines charges different amounts of taxes so this will be an important aspect before buying the pass.
To be honest, Frontier Airlines offers great airfares like the above pictures, and these fares are applicable for mileage earning and elite status points. On top of that, the taxes cost similar to the GoWild! pass issued tickets. So I prefer to buy the full fare tickets and earn miles and status.
Frontier Airlines is now selling its GoWild! All-You-Can-Fly Pass for US$599 for the first year and US$1,999 for renewal. Leaving aside the hefty renewal cost, paying US$599 to travel free for a year is an attractive value.
However, the cheaper the price, there are consequences too. As flights and seats are subject to availability and last-seat availability is not guaranteed, you have to plan your travels at the last-minute most of the time.
