Frontier is a unique airline. Whenever I see the Frontier Airlines planes, I love to look at the tails. They have the cutest animals on their tails, and their airplanes are never boring!
One of the things I personally love about Frontier Airlines is that they are known as “The Worlds Greenest Airline” and keeping with that environmentally friendly approach, its aircraft tails bring awareness to endangered animals.
Frontier even offers “pet insurance” for its employees animals. How cool is that?
