I am an existing Frontier elite member (not status matched), and have a higher status with another airline/hotel. Can I get an upgrade?
If you hold a higher status tier with an eligible airline/hotel that would grant you a status match to a higher Frontier tier than you currently hold – you can apply for a status match using that other airline/hotel status, and you will be granted that higher equivalent tier with Frontier.
I successfully status matched with Frontier and since then, my other airline/hotel status has been upgraded to an even higher tier, can I get my Frontier status updated/upgraded?
No. Status Matches are calculated on the tier you hold at the time of application. If you are, for example, about to be upgraded to the next tier with your airline/hotel – we recommend applying for the Frontier Status Match after you have that higher tier in your account.
I am an elite tier holder with an airline that is not listed as an eligible airline, can I get a status match?
At this time, the match is only offered to the listed airline status members. However, if you begin the status match application process, and select the airline/hotel you have elite status with – we will record your details and alert you at a later stage should a status match opportunity become available for you.
