Default Airplane tickets

So im flying to salt lake city this on friday with my GF. This is my first time flying. Heres the deal, we have a total of 4 flights, 3 with Frontier, and 1 on United. Now, on the 3 Frontier flights we are on totally different ends of the plane, but on united we are next to each other. Is there any chance that the airline will let us move seats around to sit next to each other?
Sorry for the ignorant question, but this is my first time flying.

If the planes not full, yes they will.
If it's full, it's still possiable but a little more difficult.

If the plane is not full, Northwest lets you choose/re-choose your seat assignments yourself as much as you want online.

Ask the flight attendent. MOST of the time, they will help you find seats together...even if the flight is full. I've swaped seats before so people could sit together. It isn't a big deal. The flight attendants are pretty good at picking people who are receptive to moving.

In my most recent trips they have shot down people asking to change. Noting the whole Orange Level and FAA regulations.

Either way, often times if you do E-Tickets like Spro said, you can change them. I didn't read, did you try just calling them to see if they could change them for you?

Looks like they are like Northwest.
24 hours in advance do ticket check in and I would guess you can change seats at that time also. If your still concerned call them as each airline handles things differently.

Most times at check in you can request with the ticket agent. They can set you up for the whole Trip right there. I've always delt with American, and never had problems. The only time I had to ask passengers was when I flew stand-by, and most people are happy, as long as the seat is closer to the main exit. Also request that you are not in an exit row, some seats don't recline. And most of all, be sure that you lift your butt off the seat during take-off when the back of the plane hits the ground before flight

Second some people are uneasy about flying, and joking about such things honestly isn't cool in my opinion.

Deuce..........I'm just as uneasy about flying. In fact I'd rather drive. My father is also a retired pilot for American Airlines. I still get nerveous everytime I fly though. Even if it is the safest form of transportation

I just know adding fuel to the fire isn't cool about some things.

I personally LOVE flying. Looking at the landscapes from a birds eye view. Always associated the view with Lego's and Micro Machines.

DSon't sweat it. When you get on the plane, go to your asigned seats. Ask the person next to you ( have your G/F do the same) if they will trade so you two can sit together. The Flight attendants don't care where you are sitting as long as you are on the plane. Most of the time you can talk a seat mate into making a switch, your best bet is trading a spot near the front of the plane for one near the back, or trading an isle seat or window for a middle row.
