    Complaints against Frontier Airlines trend lower than last year

    Frontier Airlines continued its year-over-year decline in consumer complaints, though more people filed grievances against the Denver-based company in September than they did in August. Frontier ranked 10th among the country’s 12 largest airlines for September, according to the monthly Air Travel Consumer Report released Thursday by the U.S. Department of Transportation. Its 2.52 complaints per 100,000 enplanements were ahead only of American Airlines (2.54) and fellow ultra-low-cost carrier Spirit Airlines (6.65), and were a bump from the 1.74 complaints filed with the DOT in August .

    U.S. airlines sharply cut involuntary passenger bumping: DOT

    Major U.S. airlines are bumping far fewer passengers from overbooked flights after a high-profile incident in April prompted the industry to reassess its practices, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) reported on Thursday. The government reported the rate of involuntary bumping passengers among the 12 largest U.S. carriers fell to 0.15 per 10,000 passengers in the three months ended Sept. 30 - the lowest quarterly rate dating back to 1995 - and down sharply from a rate of 0.69 in the same period last year. The involuntary bumping figure does not take into account passengers who agree to give up their seats in exchange for compensation.
