Getting a minor onto a plane without an ID?

I have a domestic flight for the 19th and I don't have an id. From what I read I don't need one to get on the plane if I have an adult confirm it's really me. I was wondering if my friend that's bringing me to the airport would be able to be my "adult" because she's 18 and has an id. Just wanted to make sure it doesn't have to be an adult over a certain age. I'm 17 and it's for Frontier Airlines if that matters.


I know it's short notice :c I only got the tickets yesterday, which is why I'm checking so close to the date. On the official Frontier site it says:

Children 17 years and under traveling alone will need:

— Official photo ID issued by a government authority

— Two forms of ID (without a photo), one of which must be issued by a government authority

— Be accompanied by an adult with appropriate ID

So I'm assuming that they'd consider 18 an adult. Last time I flew I didn't need a "legal guardian" to get on the plane, an adult family friend brought me and they checked his id before letting me on.

Update 2:

Why would it need to be 21 years old? Just curious.
