But you get extras for it. 2 free checked bags, free in-seat directTV on the flight (6 dollars otherwise) and choice of seats closer to the front, ability to change flights for free.

Frontier has found a market at Allentown. ....
Thanks for this information, its reassuring. I was planning on getting the Classic, mainly because we are traveling with a toddler and I think we could use the extra room and bags. Glad to know I was planning correctly! Didn't realize about the DirectTV being included, that's a big bonus for us since that would keep our little one quiet. Was planning on taking a portable DVD player, maybe won't have to now. Not being on RAC is not a big concern since we are only staying a couple of days and then moving on to a vacation home offsite. Thanks again. Everyone on these boards is always so helpful. I'll report back after our trip to "pay it forward"!

My fatigue, sorry I flew Allegiant to Sandford/Orlando from Allentown. There is no ME.....I was frustrated at cost add on's and poor airport set up; check in upper, security, lower, the plane upper with tiny elevators.
A bottle of water was $2.50 but the one ticket was $55.

Prepay check bag, $20, overhead storage $16, one carry on back pack size free. Avg ticket was 97 with fees, some seats were $35, $55, $75.
Many people stowed their back pack in the overhead leaving no room for our paid bag.

I would take Frontier which took over the AirTran from Allentown, or prefer Harrisburg. The Advantage to Allegiant this week was flights to local airport Wilkes Barre/Scranton.
Return there was much, much better. Twenty minutes we were home.

Be cautious about Rt 22 traffic, delays and accidents.

We flew from Allentown on Frontier this morning. We did the classic fare, which included the checked bags and tv, and paid for stretch seating as we are both tall. The plane was full. They give you a drink for free, any snacks are extra. But the flight was fine with no problems. If are trip home is anything similar I would have no hesitation on flying Frontier again. If you need the legroom the stretch seating is worth the upgrade. The tv was nice, watched Brave on the way down. Flight attendants were nice, boarding was slow-people trying to stow carry ons clogged the aisles. Despite living 30 minutes from the Avoca airport, I would prefer to fly into Orlando and not deal with Allegiants crazy fees. I wouldn't be worrying about flying Frontier, no problems for us or our friends who flew with us.

I agree with you, ahrizel, about Allegiant's fees.....and we live 5 minutes from AVP. However, for our trip in December we are flying Allegiant from AVP and using Frontier back to ABE....only because the flight times work better for us.
We'll just have our daughter drop us at AVP for the Allegiant flight to Sanford...we were planning to rent a car in Orlando this trip anyway..... and then rent a car to drive home from ABE for the return.....which is about same cost as paying for parking if we were leaving a car at the airport. Glad to hear Frontier is OK....we've traditionally been either SWA or Airtran....and love them both.....but, really tired of making the drive to/from PHL for flights....we loved when AT was at ABE for a few years.
