A Frontier Airlines Airbus A320-200, registration N232FR performing flight F9-129 from Dallas Ft. Worth,TX to Denver,CO (USA), was climbing out of DFW's runway 18L when the crew stopped the climb at about 10,000 feet requesting to descend to 5000 feet due to problems with the cabin pressurization. The aircraft burned off fuel and returned to Dallas for a safe landing on runway 18R about 65 minutes after departure.

Passengers reported the aircraft departed with delay due to maintenance working on a door seal. Shortly after departure most passengers started to complain about headache, a number of passengers began vomitting, babies were crying. After landing back the airline indicated another plane would take them to Denver, after boarding that plane the captain announced they had just discovered an oil leak and needed yet another aircraft. The third aircraft finally managed to take them to Denver with a delay of about 17 hours.

The airline reported the crew received indication of a pressurization issue and returned to DFW for maintenance. A replacement aircraft was dispatched.
