There was a good amount of space for leg room. This was only a 2 1/2 hour flight so that there was no need for any kind of entertainment. The food and drink were not free, but I expected that. Therefore I have no real opinion on the quality of either. The plane was very clean and the attendants were friendly. I would fly Frontier again.
