DENVER – Frontier Airlines passengers bound for San Diego were among hundreds of frustrated travelers experiencing major delays and issues at Denver International Airport on Sunday.

Some passengers told FOX 31 they have been waiting for almost 30 hours at the airport because of the problems. Their checked bags were also placed on the ground in a sea of bags at the airport.

According to CBS Denver, there were more than 120 Frontier Airlines flights canceled over the weekend.  Several Frontier passengers said they had long wait times on the tarmac, too.

Frustrated customers have been waiting in line for over 10 hours to speak to customer service. It’s been so long that some people are sleeping in line, FOX 31 reported.

However, Frontier Airlines spokesman Jim Faulkner told the Denver news that they are still experiencing ripple delays, but are trying to get things back to normal.


The only Frontier Airlines flight from Denver to San Diego Sunday evening was canceled.

Despite the roads being clear of snow, Faulkner said weather conditions played a factor for some workers who were not able to get into work. According to the airline, additional employees had been called in Sunday to assist passengers.
