Boarding process was disjointed and weird. Understaffed desk at gate and resulting overwhelm precluded any boarding announcements! Flight itself was fine, with good crew and adequate service. On time with no major delays.
Boarded late and then sat on plane for 45 minutes because of a clerical error...whatever that means. Then only one truck to deice plane, adding more time to our take off.
Pros: "Flight was good and crew were good. Nothing very outstanding but by no means a terrible flight."

Pros: "They let me sleep."
Pros: "good job over all"
Pros: "Entertainment on the flight was fantastic."
Cons: "Delta really struggles with trying to get everyone in the plane in an orderly fashion. Window seats must climb over all of the aisle passengers that got on before."
Pros: "Incredible service, great entertainment options, comfy seats"
Pros: "Pleasant flight, plenty of entertainment on a long flight."
Cons: "Delayed our flight, had to buy another hotel night to accommodate and restructure our schedule, but it was pleasant other than that."
Pros: "Good flight."
Cons: "Delta scheduled us a connection with only 35 min of layover. We had to go from Concourse E to A and the plane was several min late.We barely made it before the gate closed 10 min before pushback."
Pros: "New airplanes.On time schedule .Very professional a"
Cons: "Could not get my boarding pass from Delta for the flight from PHX to LAX. Aeromexico did not confirm that leg of the trip, so I lost all day and had to buy another ticket for tomorrow. Still, Aeromexico has not solved anything"
Cons: "Full flight and tiny seats surrounded by 2 300lb guys and they wouldn't let me switch my seat."
Pros: "got to the plane even though the ground crews had a lot of people to get bags checked for even down to 30 min to flight departure but still got their bags onto the plane"
Cons: "massive rips in the bag"
Pros: "Everything except food. I asked them for halal food when I bought tickets. But they didn't serve me halal food. Very very disappointed."
Cons: "Food and food."
Cons: "Poor WiFi. Paid extra to get it, but didnt sporadic at best."
Pros: "Airport was being remodeled so there was a bit of confusion and lack of accommodation but other than that the flight was good"
Pros: "If you're willing to pay the upgrade, the entertainment system and ear buds should be in working order! Seats still uncomfortably narrow and audio system on plane should be audible!"
Pros: "The airline crew seems to be getting better, although I can't say that they are super helpful"
Cons: "The seats, just water offered, the bathroom, no Wifi, extremely crowded and small plane. Seriously, I don't understand what is all the money payed used for since I just heard that the crew members might be actually underpaid"

Pros: "The Flight crew was great and the pilot got us there with the least amount of delay as possible. Thanks everyone!"
Pros: "New comfort seats. Nice staff. Pilot kept us continuously updated."
Cons: "Unclear info on upgrade [priority boarding when upgraded?]. Inability to upgrade ticket made using mileage points or upgrade at counter at gate."
Cons: "The redesign of seats means that very few of Delta's planes can actually accommodate a sherpa-style pet carrier, even though they are an industry standard for in-cabin travel. Further complicating the problem is that the clearance under the seat varies depending where in the cabin you're seated. It's become an extremely stressful proposition for which I have the privilege of paying an extra +$100 each way whilst having to give up one of my carry ons. As far as I can see, the charge is just straight up greed, since no one would be able to use the space beneath the seat in front of me, anyway, and carrying on my cat cause zero extra work for the crew. I'm going to have rethink my loyalty to Delta. At least with Southwest, they'll let me check two bags for no additional cost."
Pros: "very attentive service and remarkably tasty food in first class"
Cons: "seat was tight. not much legroom and very claustrophobic when the person in front of me reclined his seat."

Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Pros: "Staff was so kind and helpful."
Cons: "They ran out of a couple of the snacks, not a big problem but note worthy."

Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Cons: "Nothing. Awesome Customer Service"
Pros: "The flight was probably one of the worst I've ever taken. The seats and aisles are so narrow. You had to walk side ways to get down the aisles. Very uncomfortable flight. It was so bad I had to upgrade to first class on the return flight because I just couldn't bear it again. I was not happy ."
Pros: "4 flights and all of them in middle uncomfortable seats. I requested aisle seats many times and counter agents were unhelpful and rude."
Cons: "Better seat options and more comfortable seats"
Pros: "Overall a very good flight"
Cons: "Awful, loud credit card sales pitch wine up children and another everyone in cabin for what seemed an eternity. Absolutely disgusting."

Pros: "Made it to destination"
Cons: "Gate changed without any notification"
Cons: "As soon as I boarded I noticed a strong urine smell. It didn’t really go away, or I just got used to it."
Pros: "The comfort of the plane and the continued update on my flight delay."
Cons: "The flight was delayed but no fault of American."
Cons: "We boarded a bit late. No big deal. Once on, however, they made us deboard because they forgot to do a security check. Oops. Flight attendants made the experience much better -- funny, enthusiastic, hard-working."

Pros: "Easy flight"
Cons: "too tight to connection time in DFW"
Pros: "Customer service people were nice."

Pros: "blanket made it comfortable"
Cons: "No entertainment options"

Cons: "I liked Everything!"
Pros: "This was the same crew and pilot from the flight I took to LAX. His landing was so smooth, I woke up pleasantly upon landing!"
Pros: "The trip was on time and with no issues flying. I really enjoyed the ability to watch a movie...this was AWESOME!"

Pros: "Planes were on time and staff was friendly"
Cons: "Nothing disliked"
Cons: "Flight was changed. Didn't get the seats I had already picked out. Woman on flight was very rude to me when I asked where the restroom was. NOT a good experience over all."
Cons: "Flight delayed going to and from my destination with no compensation. My bag I had to wait for it to come on the next flight and had to wait 2 hours for it."
Pros: "Standard flight , however I can't believe what most passengers bring on as cabin baggage !!"
Cons: "Evening meal of a turkey sandwich on dry bread was forgettable and considering that they co-share with Qantas , American could learn about providing a decent meal on a long expensive flight"
Pros: "Checkin was fast. Crew is always pleasant."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. I chose to upgrade my seat and was charged but i couldnt see any difference between my seat and anyone elses. I dont understand how it works. Then I was refunded the upgrade amount..."
Pros: "After missing my flight and zero empathy from AA employee who reassigned a new ticket - I was given 3 new times and an explanation that no pilots were there yet. Flight was short and painless -- but the scheduling was totally frustrating."
Pros: "I love the cookies"
Cons: "I wish my seat would recline more"
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very pleasant; almost pretentious. One had a passive aggressive attitude towards an older couple next to me with questions regarding the exit seats. The flight attendant was short and quick to snap. This was the couples first trip to hawaii and the attendant gave them a sour impression leaving the plane. I was disappointed."
Pros: "Everything was nice and comfy"
Cons: "Nothing everything is perfect"
Cons: "There were no screens by each place!!"
Pros: "The lay over wasn't bad at all had enough time to make it to my gate and get something to eat"
Cons: "Was scheduled to leave at 3:15pm didn't leave until 4:17pm"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed due to weather, which I was fine with as I wanted to fly home in the safest conditions, and I do trust the captains decision. However, upon arrival, we were stuck on the runway for 3 hours!!!! Our flight landed at 1, we did not exit plane until 3:40. They were not curtious enough to give us accurate time frames on when we would be allowed off. They told us 40 minutes initially, obviously was a lie. We did not receive updates whatsoever. We had to stay seated the entire time with seat belts even though we were not moving!! I got up to use the restroom and was instructed to sit back down even though attendants were aware that we were not moving and were not getting off any time soon. A 2 hour flight turned into 5 hours on the plane instead so of course many passengers needed to use the restroom. Flight attendants offered no avail with extra attention, drinks, snacks or even by allowing fussy babies to be strolled down the aisle as the aircraft was completely still until the last 3-5 minutes when we FINALLY pulled to a terminal. We had to have a terminal when southwest would have gladly brought stairs to our flight so we could at least wait inside a less compact space, such as the airport, for luggage. I know of many people on our flight who missed connecting flights, which I'm sure AA did nothing to accommodate. By the end of it all, my family member who originally was going to pick us up from airport went home as he waited over 3 hours for me to get off the plane. I had to pay a taxi cab to bring me home and did not make it home until 6am when it was all said and done. To add insult to injury, the flight attendants did not even thank us for our patience or have the decency to address said issue. Never flying AA again."
Cons: "Terrible side to side of aeroport to get conetion fly with out time"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Our flight was delayed 3 hours and they did their best to keep all the passengers comfortable and happy."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment to rate"
Pros: "I was in group 2"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Seats comfortable for economy. Routine pretzel/cookie/peanuts and beverage. The crew picks up the garbage almost immediately after giving it me...huh? Then I'm left holding it the remainder of the flight when the come back through again. Now for the kicker....I had two flights the same day so I opted to buy the All Day Pass for $25.95!!! What? It was a 2 hour flight each way... Can't they prorate for flight duration or something??!! I ended up watching 1 movie "Superman vs Batman" that was 1 of 4 options of movies that come with the $25.95 package. Other movies available are an additional $5.99 to "rent". Wow...ruined."
Cons: "See the pro section it won't let me copy and paste into the con section."
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "This is what every flight should be like."
Cons: "Pretzels was only free snack."
Pros: "Window seat"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding. Not a smooth flight. Landing was questionable."
This flight never happened. We were not even in the airport because the connection was delayed hours past when this one was supposed to leave. Everyone knew it would be. But United didn’t say anything until they canceled it at it’s departure time.
It is virtually impossible to hear the announcements on this plane. Very poor audible equipment. The attendant did a nice job with serving drinks and snacks to everyone on this tiny plane. He was efficient and pleasant.
Pros: "I was able to change my seat."
Cons: "Five hour delay, no entertainment, no food... A really poor experience."
Pros: "Leg room and entertainment current."
Cons: "Seats to recline further."
Pros: "Timely flight. Smooth and easy check in."
Cons: "United Airlines were curt and unhelpful. The refused to allow me to board my flight unless I arrived at least 1 hour before takeoff. There were 57min until takeoff after I checked in at the counter. I have a trusted traveler card and TSA express."
Pros: "Supe easy flight."
Pros: "I was asleep in this flight & was not bothered during beverage service. This flight was only 2 & 1/2 hrs"
Pros: "The ease of boarding and plenty of room."
Cons: "Only that the man sitting next to me kept the light on. It was an early morning flight."
Pros: "This airplane was older and it seemed there was more leg room than on other planes I've ridden on. I'm 5'11 and my husband is 6'4. This was really appreciated. Nice attendants. Boarding was orderly the different groups waited in rows. Older gentleman greeted us with Merry Christmas as he took our tickets. Overall nice feeling."
Cons: "Had to cancel my trip due to family illness. But, not acceptable to United for a refund. And wants to charge me as much as a new ticket to save my ticket. Why penalize me for a sick relative? Unbelievable! And very disappointing."
Pros: "Very nice flight attendant and the landing was very smooth."
Cons: "I’m not a fan of the waffle cookies, wish they had a couple of choices of snacks."
Pros: "Good thing it was first thing in the morning."
Pros: "What isn't there to like about first class?"
Pros: "Got me there"
Cons: "Bad knee hurt by end of flgt"
Cons: "Preboarding wasent allowed. They forced me to check my bag in even though it was made for airplanes. Rude customer service. Flight was delayed."
Pros: "Coustumer Service"
Pros: "Apologies and attitude of crew They got me on another carrier so I could get to my destination"
Cons: "Not enough people on hand to reroute customers. Some picky customers took too much time. After an hour they handed out phone number to call and make our own arrangements"
Pros: "Watching part of a baseball game at the Chicago airport and reading a book."
Cons: "I did not get to fly to Fargo. I had to drive. all flights were delayed or cancelled."
Pros: "Everyone was pleasant."
Cons: "Delays due to staffing issues led to missed connection and 7 hour wait for next available flight."
Pros: "The fact that no one was seated next to me"
Cons: "Everything else. Got to SFO later than I was SUPPOSED to get to PDX, my final destination. Supposedly due to weather. Not a cloud in the sky......"
Cons: "Did' agree with decision of Ua air to include unannounced stop at Rapid City to drop off crew as it was not a part of my scheduling ticket. A bit confusing at the gate w/ looking for flight to Fargo. Had to ask other passengers at gate what was going on."
Pros: "Friendly staff, smooth flight"
Pros: "That the plane got me back to the US."
Cons: "Flight crew should learn how to smile. In general, not even vaguely friendly. Food was the absolute worse I have eaten in many, many years ( I have millions of miles of air travel). Seats old and hard and extremely close together."
Cons: "The flight delay was terrible"
Pros: "I arrived and my flight was delayed until after 9:30pm and my connecting flight left at 10."
Cons: "Unreliable. Could not get me to my destination in a timely manner. Trip cancelled."
Pros: "It was wonderful plenty of space, legroom"
Pros: "Flight was wonderful!"
Pros: "Everything worked out just fine"
Pros: "The captain of the plane was polite and kind."
Cons: "The weather in SF delayed is so very long while the airport staff were rather rude at both airports. And after all that, my bag did not make it on my connecting flight- or maybe it did but you guys texted me it didn't via your little app- and I had to go back for it mysef the next day becuase you would not deliver it or help me find it. wanted to be compensated for my long and horrible ordeal."
Pros: "I was never able to take the flight because of a significant delay in arrival in Tucson and subsequent arrival in Chicago."
Pros: "Easy enough to get on and stow my carry on."
Cons: "Narrow as all hell. Also, somewhere between Tucson and Nashville the baggage guys played football with my case. I ended up with broken gifts and a suitcase full of crushed cookies after the damn container is broken as well."
Pros: "Helpful employees"
Cons: "Being charged for internet access. Cramped seating."
Pros: "Pros: flight landed early Boarding was easy. Flight was smooth"
Cons: "Was FAR too cold on the plane. The way bags were being distributed the large carry ons from under the plane after landing was unorganized and poorly planned. Tried to reschedule my flight, to do so is a cost of $200 not including the price difference in having to buy a new ticket. May not be flying United anymore"
Cons: "I had to go in and out of security 3 times to try to make alternate flight arrangements. The United staff was slow, unsympathetic and made several errors. I spent 7 hours in the airport due to errors."
Pros: "We landed."
Cons: "I sat in 3A. Almost every passenger getting onboard hit me with his or her bag. The guy across the aisle stepped on my foot. There simply was not enough room for people to move in the aisle."
Cons: "The plane was not prepared to travel; snacks and beverages were note available during our flight because someone forgot to stock the plane."
Pros: "Not much, crew was pleasant enough."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs, missed connection, had to spend day in limbo at DIA. Seats were rock hard on aircraft. I flew on UA because of the timing to my destination. 6 hours of travel time turned into a 13 hr experience. boo"
Cons: "Our flight arrived at LAX 20 minutes early so expected to get my connecting flight on time. Boy was I wrong, we sat inside the plane on the runway for over an hour. It was getting hot inside and people were getting upset about missing their connecting flights. We went around in circles on the runway, about 3 times. As people were getting agitated, so was the stewardess. Also people had to use the restroom, and the stewardess kept asking people to stay in there seats and she begin to lose her cool. What do you expect when your on the runway for over an hour. When people got to go, they got to go. So after finally arriving at the gate, "late" United did get me on another flight thru Alaska which was great. Will I fly United again, hmm I'm sure I will, One bad experience won't scratch them off my list, but I will choose other airlines first and United will be my last resort."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early. Also, the ticket purchase was seamless. Perfection!"
Pros: "Staff is always friendly"
Cons: "We never boarded on time. Houston to Orlando was a nightmare."
Pros: "The cookies"
Cons: "Everything went alright, got to LAX in 1 hour. Felt nice."
Pros: "assigned seating"
Cons: "Hate the lack of leg room."
Cons: "Due to my initial delayed flight I got to O'Hare during a drastically busy time. Due to the amount of people, noise, and dishevelment my PTSD became aggravated and I found myself having an attack. I chose the initial early flight to ensure this would not happen. I am aware of what causes my PTSD to become aggravated and I take that into consideration when I make all plans."
Cons: "My 7 year old first time flying and only had 1/2 a window view. Other passenger closed it, not knowing we were looking out. But for a short flight, pretty comfortable."
Pros: "My flight home was surprisingly faster than I thought it would take and the entire time I was comfortable and relaxed."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and staff was great."
Cons: "Our trip was delayed 3 hours but Frontier gave us a voucher to say they were sorry for the inconvenience. But overall the flight was good and the crew were very professional and friendly."
Cons: "overweight. took forever"
Cons: "Seats super uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was good . Flight was efficient ."
Cons: "The extra charges that kept being added on was frustrating ...the one way direct started out at 63$ and ended up being 164$"
Pros: "The direct flight and the price Was excellent"
Cons: "Very good flight"
Pros: "Crew did fairly well under the circumstances. Clean aircraft."
Cons: "4 hour delay because frontier either doesn’t contract for or refuses to pay for deicing services in Phoenix. The pilot stated that Sky Harbor doesn’t have deicing services which I personally know to be false because southwest and delta both have deicing services and their is a deicing location at the airport. Instead we waited for the sun to thaw the airplane and further waited for a fuel truck afterwards. Only the first three rows have reclining seats that you pay extra for. I only recommend frontier for SHORT commutes, as the seats really are that uncomfortable with very little padding. NEVER AGAIN!"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "It was an early flight and when i got to the airport (at the time i was supposed to) there was a line stretching and no attendants.. they then came out late, others almost missed thier flights because they had been waiting so long. When they came out the workers looked so surprised and flustered. You know what time customers will begin arriving. You should know what time your employees should be at work. Unacceptable to have an empty counter that we have to ask someone to go find workers for. Especially when you like to charge for so many things at that counter. You should have paid me for my luggage instead of the other way around."
Cons: "The total cost of the flight is just a fraction of what you’ll pay. The nickel and dime you for everything. $38 for a carrying on, same for a checked bag. It was a quick trip and thought a back pack would be okay to carry on.... nope that’s $38, if you pay ahead of time. They charge more at the gate. When you check in they try to get you to pay anywhere from $9 to $21 to pick a seat. Seats don’t recline either. Flight was also late. You’re better off paying the full fare on another flight than flying Frontier. Never again."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing. I'M SORRY AS IT WAS MY FIRST TIME AND I have to tell you that I m usually pretty low maintenance....but damn ....this was was brutal! Price was was great... but not worth the experience."
Cons: "Seat comfort, cattle care of crew, no movie, no real food....you name it."
Pros: "The flight took off on time & arrived in Cincinnati CVG airport a half hour early."
Pros: "Like low airfare."
Cons: "Don't like having to pay for every little thing, like carry-ons, sodas + snacks on trip, and seating. Feel nickel + dimed to death, negating savings."
Cons: "11 hour delay .....Flight 740 From phx to den departure @6 am had a mechanical. First it was going to be delayed until 10 am them 11 am then 4 pm then 530 pm .it left at 6 pm . It got in at 9 pm by the time we got the car and got to out friend home it would have been close to 11 . We would have been up for 20 hours ( got up at 3 am to get there for a 6 am flight . We were going to a business meeting in demver in the morning in the afternoon a 70 th birthday lunch for my best friend. This trip was planned for months . We live in phx after it was clear we had missed both events we went back home @5 We ended up paying for a supper shuttle and a rent a car in Denver . We paid all that money To go noware the customer service woman there , was uncaring to everyone on board we were just on our own . I am heartbroken we missed the party ."
Cons: "My flight had a six hour delay and the whole Phoenix Frontier section of the terminal was packed because there were multiple flights delayed. All for mystery "mechanical" issues."
Pros: "On-time factor"
Cons: "Having to pay for basics"
Pros: "The desk and gate staff was super helpful!"
Cons: "I understand that weather can't be controlled, but I feel as though more could have been done to get me to Philadelphia...even if that meant sending me to another city instead of Denver, for a layover."
Pros: "The trip was excellent, the flight boarded and took off on time, and we arrived early! Great flight"
Cons: "The seats are not angled to fit the figure of a person. The back of the seat leans back and the head of the seat is perfectly straight up. It meets at a point where that does not line up with the persons body height depending on the person. If you just leave it at one angle of give it the potential to lean back just enough, People will be that much more comfortable. I wasn't the only person who mentioned this on my flight, in fact I spoke with 3 people and overheard others complaints as well. One angle or at least a centimeter of space to lean back...I don't think it will mess with people behind them since there's no tv or entertainment and I think it will continue to bring more people into frontier."
Cons: "Frontier ingeneral. Very poor customer service, very uncomfortable, no accommodations for taller people with service animal, flight was delayed twice. Won't make that mistake again."
Pros: "I was almost late and they did everything they could to help me get to my destination including running my drivers license to me, as I was realizing at the security check that I had lost it. Then the crew was second to none and far better than other larger airlines. I'm sure most people know through word of mouth or their own experiences that they are sometimes spread too thin to cater to the customer anymore and this, however, was a fresh change of pace. I rarely take the time to fill reviews out but felt obligated in this case to spread the word through my gratitude. I had recently been laid off and they made sure I got on my flight for a job opportunity I needed. I thought the best part was the $59 ticket with tax but you can't quantify real costumer service like that. Thank you again to everyone at Frontier Airlines!"
Cons: "The plane was delayed an hour and a half because of a computer problem."
Pros: "The initial fare seemed reasonable but they charge you for carry on as well as checked baggage big time."
Cons: "When we checked in for the return flight EVERY SEAT had a price tag, and the implicit threat was that your may not be seated together if you didn't pony up."
Pros: "Relatively quick flight - I slept much of the time. Decent leg room (but I am short). Great price!! I overheard others on the flight with similar prices, I am glad this was available."
Cons: "A loud crying baby was behind me the whole time. Inevitably, he stopped crying just five minutes before the flight ended. Nothing much any one can do about this. I did not think to ask for ear plugs, maybe you have them."
Pros: "I liked everything except I was a bit surprised to find out it was an extra $40 for my carry-on each way. I would've paid the extra $80 upfront but it seemed a little bit sneaky to add it on when I got to the airport. Otherwise it was a very enjoyable experience."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "seats tight hard"
Cons: "As the other airlines were flying out of Denver despite the falling snow, Frontier cancelled almost every flight anywhere. Including ours. To their credit, they refunded our money, but its hard to need to go somewhere and the airline you've chosen is sitting on the ground. Very bad form."
Pros: "Nothing other than getting from Phoenix to Atlanta"
Cons: "The baggage check in process at Phoenix is a complete joke. What is the point of prepaying for baggage on line if you still have to stand in line for over half an hour while you watch other passengers drop their jaws when they find out how much checking a bag costs, have the agents explaining the process and the price, fumbling for credit cards, processing the payments, etc, then, when you finally get to your turn, you are out of there in 30 seconds. There should be at lease one agent at all times who is dedicated to serving the passengers who do not need to pay. They should be in and out, not standing in line, when there is no payment to process. Then there is the total joke of the refreshments sales process on board the flight. It's not even worth going into that since I will never board another Frontier flight."
Pros: "Be prepared to pay $150+ to pick your seat and check your luggage, even your carry-on."
Pros: "I have flown with frontier multiple times, and everytime there is an issue. From lengthy delays, rude employees or overly priced checked luggage. And not only that their new seats are so uncomfortable and don't recline back. The Some what lower prices aren't worth it any more. I will not be flying with frontier anymore."
Cons: "The original fair cost was inexpensive but you pay for it at check in with extra cost to sit together and more for checked luggage than other airlines. To add to the additional costs, there was no free in-flight drinks or snacks offered. Is it asking that much for a water and a cookie. The seats and the plane overall were very cheesie. I spent just as much in the end flying frontier as I would have flying another more expensive airline. And would have gotten at least a drink and a cookie from them."
Pros: "nothing, we got text messages, rarely was there any personnel at the gate."
Cons: "Sitting on tarmac for hour and a half with no time of getting off rhe plane os inhumane treatment."
Cons: "We have been delayed 2.5 hours and still waiting. No one has been at the desk the entire time to give us any updates or information. Our message board behind the desk still says we were departing 30 minutes ago. Pilots took forever with pre check"
Cons: "I had to change flight plans with travel insurance reccomended by Kayak (which was no help at all). What the travel insurance covered was so specific that it was pointless to buy...(even though Kayak said that I would get a refund not matter what if I bought the travel insurance)."
Pros: "I was glad the flight had room to move around and I was able to change seats to watch out the window. I was especially glad to have seating room. Also it was a pleasure to ride in a newer aircraft."
Pros: "I appreciated that we were allowed a purse as individual carry on. They do charge for carry ons, so check the measurements of your bag. They didn't appear to be too anal about it, but $60 charge at the gate wasn't worth it."
Cons: "Misleading during online check in about paying extra for more "valuable" seats. If you really don't care, don't pay extra unless you like giving away your money."
Pros: "The crew was nice, flight on time and fine."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that you do not recycle, yet you provide goods that are just placed in landfills and will take hundreds of years to decompose. The airports recycle, is it that difficult to make that happen for Frontier? The hundreds of plastic cups, plastic bottles, cans, etc. etc. is mind blowing and is something I pay attention to. I actually took my item back to the airport instead of giving to the crew at the end so I could place the item in the recycle bin in the airport after asking your crew if there was recycling. They said there was no recycling. I also picked up a plastic bottle from another seat on the way out to help clean up since I knew you guys would throw it out anyway. Thanks for considering being more sustainable, eco-friendly, and for thinking about my comment seriously to minimize your airplane's environmental impact. I will pay attention and voice my concerns elsewhere as well - recycling shouldn't have to be done by the consumer, the businesses need to step up and make it happen."
Pros: "fares are fine but you offer NOTHING FREE like they did in the good old days, not even a small pillow or blanket, no small bottle of water or peanuts. Back in the day we got food, snacks, room to move and comfortable seats for an airplane."
Cons: "Paying for all the extras is disgusting, bags, drink, nuts, no pillow, no blanket, HARD SEATS with no room to relax."
Pros: "My initial flight from Denver to Phoenix was a hour late, but lets talk about the way home.... Flight got in OK and then we waited 45 minutes for a gate to open. Could you park us at another gate? That would be too simple. When we parked we waited another 20 minutes while they put a jet way in place. Now answer this... the other plane just left that spot, so what happened to the jet way from that plane? Do they completely take it away or just fold it up? Fold it up I bet , so it was in place just had to be opened up. I guess they couldn't find anyone to do that. I know this sounds petty, but I have never taken a Frontier flight that went smoothly. Thank God I haven't had to take many. And it's not as cheap as it looks by the time they get you for bags and a charge for your seat. I ALREADY PAID FOR MY SEAT, WHAT'S THAT ALL ABOUT. Bye Bye Frontier, I'll pay more for the service issues."
Pros: "Quick, organized check in"
Cons: "TINY seats..... minimal legroom...... stationary seat backs"
Cons: "I got stung by the $30 each way for a carry on bag. This made the flight the most expensive of my choices rather than the most affordable. Never again."
Pros: "Service is nonexistent. Website doesn't work. Extra Charges for NOT using the website are insane. Food and beverages are nonexistent. Service is among the worst in the world. Seats aren't much more comfortable than folding chairs would be. Extra charges for absolutely every little thing ( which are normally free on every other airline ) make travel an annoying nuisance. Even carryon bags are charged --- and cost more than checked bags. It's insane."

Pros: "Quick off and on"
Cons: "No one checks people on how their kids should behave. Two hours I had my seat kicked and clawed. No matter the age, a child needs his or her own seat. The flight attendants need to be more apt to the problems caused and less to how cute a child may or may not be."
Pros: "Honestly at first I liked how it appeared to be a newer plane with updated seats but then..."
Cons: "I saw those updated seats and the joke of a tray table that was provided wouldn't even hold my iPad. The staff was apparently new because they couldn't get through one intercom conversation without fumbling through it and when a customer asked how long the flight was the flight attendant didn't know and another passenger had to answer. We were delayed by 2 hours and all because the intercom phone was broken. I know it's a safety hazard but it just wasn't a smooth professional staff that you typically see. One of the three flight attendants was tenure but all I saw was the new girl fumble through everything. I'm hoping she was new...also, we are delayed two hours sitting on the plane, so I know people will give bad reviews about that but there's nothing you can control regarding our safety. It is what it is, I just couldn't stop shaking my head everything they spoke on the intercom how bad they were on it."
Pros: "This was my first flight on Frontier and didn't know what to expect. When my iPhone boarding pass wouldn't work at security I was sent to the Frontier counter and they helped me instantly. The Phoenix boarding lounge was NOT a good introduction with holes and rips in the seats and a "sofa" that rocked everyone on it whenever someone moved.. The gate attendant however was great - and funny. The plane was VERY nice and made up for the lounge plus we made it to Colorado Springs 20 minutes early! The price ($56 including fees and taxes) means I'll be looking at Frontier in the future."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Tray tables were too small."
Pros: "Cheap price, friendly and courteous crew."
Cons: "Boarding was like a stampede. No way that many people were in Zone 1. The boarding gang could have exerted better control. Be aware that the seats are basic-very small tray tables, no recline and not as upholstered as other airlines. But, not terribly uncomfortable."
Pros: "There was a gate issue in PHX, but they found another gate and we still arrived on time."
Cons: "I do not like random seat assignment. I was not aware of this until check-in."
Pros: "Plan was on schedule, the staff was friendly and it was a smooth ride."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that all food and beverages were an additional cost and the bag fee of $30 in addition to the ticket price."
Pros: "Being on time and boarding."
Cons: "Charges for selecting seat."
Cons: "Seriously, it was a horrible experience. Everyone complains that they're misleading with the cost, but it really just adds up to what you pay on other lines, maybe slightly less still. BUT, so not worth it. Spend the extra money elsewhere. Terrible customer service. Seriously, there were 3 people that were nice, everyone else was flat out rude. Both on the phone and in person. And I was nice to them even though I was really upset, which was hard to do. Our first flight was delayed 8 hours for maintenance. We got a $10 food voucher and a $100 flight voucher. Not the best compensation considering the duration of our time in the airport and the cost of food, plus the fact that our flight was more than $100. We couldn't use the flight voucher on our return flight because it was already booked (even though a supervisor prior to that said we could), so that was worthless since I have no interest in flying with them ever again. I found out later that the flight voucher can at least be used for baggage and seat selection on the return flight, which no one mentioned even when I specifically asked multiple people (including a different supervisor) what it could be used for. But that didn't help me out either since... the flight back was flat out cancelled 40 mins before it was due to leave because they didn't have a crew to fly it due to weather issues elsewhere. The next flight they could get us on was two days later or 2 weeks later... We got a refund, but of course since it was such short notice then booking on another airline was far more expensive and they don't make up the difference. It seemed like Frontier runs things so tight that they don't have any backup plans for what I would assume are not wholly uncommon things, like maintenance and weather issues. And, as other people have pointed out, they were the tiniest seats I have ever seen. All I could think once we got on the plane was, "Thank God I'm not fatter or taller and thank God we weren't stuck on the plane itself!""
Pros: "Low fare"
Cons: "No beverage service-not even free water, really? Having to pay even to suggest where you might sit. One gentleman had to pay for his carryon, even though it fit in the baggage size indicator."
