Pros: "Getting home EVENTUALLY"
Cons: "10 minutes after leaving Austin the pilot tellsnus Houston air traffic control is grounding all westbound flights due to a storm in Dallas that's causing too much congestion. So we sa on the Tarmac for 90 minutes. I have a difficult time believing this situation was a surprise. Possibly it was just to free up the gate and not have to go through reboarding. Also leg room is getting reduced to 28 inches. I'm 5"11 and cramped. How is JetBlue better than American? How much will these airlines continue to bend us over. I didn't even take the screaming infant into account.... since it's not AA's fault for letting that baby on board."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "They lost our bags in Dallas. The customer service rep was useless"
Cons: "westjet delayed my flight once again, so I was stuck in the LAX airport for 5 hours"
Pros: "My Mom was very grateful for the friendly assistance as she is wheelchair bound and was flying aline. Excellent service!!"
Pros: "easy on and easy off. ontime."

Pros: "Good price, effective transportation, nothing special"
Cons: "Very full, not super comfortable"
Pros: "Good entertainment options in newer flights."
Cons: "Food options for first class could be better."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "No safety briefing for infants, rude gate staff, primitive fleet, terrible customer service at all levels."
Pros: "I was flying with 2 children on my own and had an issue booking seats together, the gate agents worked to find a solution when we arrived and we were all seated together. Thank you so much for keeping us all together, as my one child has aspbergers and the other is only 8 and we are not frequent flyers. I highly recommend your airline to everyone I meet. Everything met or exceeded our needs. Thank you so very much."
Pros: "I like the movie selection"
Cons: "The landing was horrible like slamming on the brakes in traffic. Also when I bought the ticket from Alaska Airlibes on kayak I had bought it at a higher price specifically for that. There was an American Airlines ticket that was cheaper but I opted to pay more because I thought I was flying on Alaska not American. I was very disappointed to see that I was actually flying on American once I was pro ting my ticket and after purchase and "no refund" message. I was very upset about that!"
Pros: "Quick connection"
Cons: "Tiny overhead bins - even in first class"
Cons: "Kiosks were not functioning and we were forced to stand in long lines for customer service for luggage tags Many passengers missed their flights No help for those using malfunctioning kiosks only one person to help hundreds of stuck customers and we barely made our flight"
Pros: "Our experience was very smooth. We appreciate all the work that went into making this a pleasant experience for all of us."
Pros: "The flight was very good. Boarding was good, shorter flight, smooth, landed and off we were."
Cons: "Seating still needs a little more padding for comfort. Delta airlines has a screen on every seat and you can see where you are and how far you have gone and so on. That would be nice. It was very difficult to hear what the pilot said when he spoke to say hello and whatever else he said. Entertainment? There wasn't any on this flight"
Cons: "Staff behaviour"
Cons: "There was no food offered. The stewardess was not happy to be at work."
Pros: "I made it home safe."
Cons: "However, the customer service was horrible and very unprofessional. I had to leave a loved one behind because nobody knew the rules and regulations on bringing back a pet! Now, I don't have my dog Tyson with me and my fiancé surprised me with him as an early Christmas gift. I won't be flying with American Airlines again!)"
Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Cons: "No internet on plane. Plane was older. Seats were not comfortable. Had to wait 40 minutes in hot plane for our gate to be available for our plane to pull into."
Pros: "Flight attendants allowed me to move into an unoccupied seat to have more room. Very polite."
Pros: "The flight was on time, and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "The boarding was very disorganized and took a long time, and there was no silverware on board, which I needed."
Cons: "It took so long for me to leave this airport. I got there around 11:30pm and my flight wasn't till around 9:45am the next day and so when it came to that time they had cancelled my flight so I got another ticked for around 2pm and they didn't board that flight till around 4:30. My experience there was to much to handle. I was supposed to get to Colorado Friday night but didn't even get here time Saturday afternoon. Really upsetted me because I leave wednsday so I don't have enough time to be with my boyfriend. I honestly don't think I'll be flying American Airlines again"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice and the plane was on time."
Cons: "I tried to switch my flight to an earlier time. First, they charge $75 (Southwest is always free). Second, the gate agent charged me and let me board, but her boss came on the plane and pulled me off because I wasn't Executive Platinum status! The plane took off with an empty seat and I had to wait two more hours for the first flight. When I complained to AA about it, they sent me a $50 voucher. I don't plan on giving any business to AA for the rest of my life."
Cons: "Apparently my seat change did not go through because I was still stuck in the last row near the bathrooms. I must say, the fecal aroma really complemented the on set nausea that was triggered by the turbulence. Every time I thought I was gona drift off to sleep I was rudely awakened by the constant "thwacking" of the bathroom doors. The family next to me was nice enough but they did have a toddler who was very loud and unhappy and the tantrums followed. I have been a server for 14 years and generally can brush annoyances off like this but this was by far the worst flight I have been on."
Pros: "Free WiFi, better options for entertainment, better snacks (see Alaska Airlines or Southwest)"
Cons: "The snacks, internet prices, and entertainment"
Pros: "crew was amazing!!"
Pros: "Snacks were delicious, flight attendant was very attentive, great conversation—I mean it might have been better because I was in first class, but it was definitely worth the upgrade."
Cons: "Seats weren’t as comfortable as I have experienced before in first class on other airlines (Delta, American)"
Pros: "While i normally fly AA i gave United a try & my flight to Austin was surprisingly comfortable & enjoyable. The trip back was another story. Seated between two very nice but 250lb people who spilled over into my seat. The Entertainment channel was best part of trip and that was uneven."
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable. Inedible food that I had to pay for was another frustration. We had a 45 min flight delay. At that point food should be gratis. A good opportunity to create loyalty was squandered. Complete lack of awareness about human essentials."
Pros: "I liked the free in ight movies which makes a 5 hr plane ride a a lot more enjoyable. Having 2 rounds of free beverages was also what I liked. The seats are comfortable, plenty of leg room, love that there are plug/ports to charge you electronic devices."
Cons: "What could have been better especially on a 5hr flight to Honolulu would be free wifi, free meals, if not free meals then 2 rounds of snacks, and I know it's out of the airlines control, but families with their screaming babies who's parents leave the tray down to keep their toddler entertained so she could kick it up and down through out the flight. I feel the airlines should place families with babies and toddlers together on a portion of the plane."
Pros: "They check in lady was wonderful."
Cons: "In flight entertainment kept getting disconnected. Stewardess serving drinks seemed a bit cranky."
Cons: "Had to sit on the tarmac for 35 minutes because our flight was “randomly” selected to wait because there was too much air traffic over Houston. Result: I missed my connection to my final destination. The airline promised that the other flights were alerted of the delay and that people would be there to assist. May departure gate was literally two gates away from my arrival gate in Houston. No one was there to help. No exceptions were made to get me on the flight, even as it was delayed at the gate for 15 minutes, meaning that they could have gotten me aboard. The whole experience made me very angry. After all this, I had to wait an additional two hours for the next flight."
Pros: "Flight was good and I am satisfied."
Cons: "My entertainment set didn't work because the headphone jack was broken so that was a major bummer."
Pros: "Flight was quick"
Cons: "better coffee"
Pros: "Ronald fight attendant made our first time to Europe trip very pleasing. He was amazing."
Cons: "nothing everything was perfect."
Pros: "The pilot team did an outstanding job explaining and communicating our progress in our holding pattern outside of Newark. We still missed our flight but God love em, they tried!"
Cons: "Great airline...change nothing down! Keep the current level or keep raising it."
Pros: "The airplane"
Cons: "The departure was delayed because of weather in Houston. If the Houston flight to SJC would have waited than we could have avoided other delays"
Pros: "Not much honestly"
Cons: "In flight entertainment system is outdated without many good movies. Screaming children and the flight attendants did nothing about them. We boarded very late and I was afraid that I would miss the flight due to UA making us sit on the tarmac forever."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Cons: "Stewardess was impatient, rude and not helpful. Asked for milk & it was spoiled which made my daughter gag. Worst part is I called United to confirm they would take care of the transfer of my luggage all the way to my final destination even with sleeping over in Japan & they said yes. Turns out, I had to get all my luggage & check it back in the next day."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Due to space limitations this was one of the most uncomfortable transatlantic trips in about 30 years"
Pros: "Over all flight was good.."
Cons: "Our plane was delayed 4 hours ..I waited at the Austin Airport all day before boarding plane coming from the Atlanta airport due to the outage ..noone was informed of the delay while waiting for boarding. I had missed my original flight and was bumped to a later flight which turned into waiting 8 hours to board ..so, I really was frustrated."
Cons: "The fact that you can not check in online unless pay for checked baggage is predatory and manipulative."
Cons: "No room for overhead bag. The overhead has room for 3 bags over each set of 3 seats. So there’s room for one bag for each passenger. How does united allow the overhead to fill up in an unfair manner"
Pros: "The cabin crew weren't charging people for alcohol on the flight"
Cons: "On checking in we had to use a machine to print our boarding passes and take our bags to a bag drop in Newark. The man proceeded to put a large tray on the conveyor belt, swing our bags in the air then smash them down into the tray. This was done to both bags as if we weren't there. Had there been something expensive in there it would have been totally destroyed. He really couldn't have cared less about our bags and their contents. We were talking to a woman on the plane who was telling us that a woman a few rows behind who had a new born baby as was told she would be given a seat with extra legroom had this taken away from her to United could sell the seat to someone paying for it. The chicken and orzo dinner was absolutely revolting. The orzo was so over cooked that it just turned to mush and the chicken really didn't taste like it had ever seen a chicken. All this combined with the issues we had on our flight out show that United are scum and just see you as ££. Sorry I cant be more complementary than that, its just the truth."
Pros: "Helpful staff and smooth flight. No connections or Hassels"
Pros: "Flight was delayed causing us to miss our connection in Houston to Bonaire. No flights until 2 weeks and we missed a vacation planned with several friends. All United said was they were sorry. We did get our money back. But not another thing."
Pros: "All of the united staff was very understanding and patient. Since this was the first time that we brought our daughter who is six months old we were both worried"
Pros: "The flight attendants were pretty nice."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour and a half while we waited for 'paperwork'. The captain kept trying to make it seem like our fault for missing our connections because we didn't have longer layovers in O'Hare. I barely made my connection. I know other people did not."
Pros: "Delayed, still in Houston waiting for another flight to go back home since last night"
Cons: "My July 11 fiight UA1259 was delayed and I could not connect to Milan. I had to stay in Newark for 1 night. But UA assigned me a hotel about 1 hour driving from Newark Airport. I had to rent by my own money $160 a day. UA should arraign a hotel either close to the airport or pay the rental car for me."
Pros: "Just your avergae flight and time for a quick flight to a nearby city"
Cons: "Just luggage being lost at the final destination was a despressing conversation"
Pros: "We liked the crew, they were helpful."
Cons: "We did not like the video on the United flight that used the app. We were not told about this until it was too late and the instructions were not good for how to get the app--they were misleading. I had to go to the app store, not the United website. Also, our seats were changed without our knowledge and the flight description for the flight from Austin to Washington, DC, specified complimentary lunch and there was no lunch unless you wanted to buy it. This should be more clear, so that I can bring my own lunch if there will be none provided."
Pros: "I boarded Lufthansa Flight# 568 on June 1st from Frankfurt to Lagos (my Destination) but forgot my pair of glasses. I made a couple of calls and was finally able to get a contact email address for email@example.com. He is the gentleman at the NAHCO AVIANCE office. He was not only very professional but went over and beyond corresponding well and was able to get the word across to the Malabo Airport where the flight finally terminated. My pair of glasses was returned from Malabo to Nigeria where I picked it up within a couple of days. I was so overjoyed at this display of fantastic customer service. Great job by the excellent team at Lufthansa. I'm going to remain with Lufthansa for future trips. Signed OF."
Pros: "The crew was understanding and patient"
Cons: "I was informed by text that flight would be 3 hours late but when I called I was told I would need to get to airport at least an hour before scheduled departure as They MIGHT get a new aircraft!!!! However when I got to airport the flight was now listed at 4 hours late. Then it was listed as 6 hours late and We arrived 6 1/2 hours late. I had missed my first trAin connection and lost part of that fee because of change then had to take UBER from airport to Penn Station in order to catch the LAST train to my home in upstate NY and was so late I could not call people to pick me up so had to take another taxi. The $50 credit you gave us did not even cover my extra taxi fares let alone aggravation AND the TV monitor in front of my seat did not work!! I am a United mileage person who flies regularly but to Texas and internationally but this was worst flight in years."
Pros: "I like that since the fight wasn't full, and I didn't know until after I bought my ticket on kayak that I couldn't change seats. The crew allowed me and my friend to sit together."
Cons: "That the window seat armrest doesn't raise to allow more room that's available."
Cons: "My plans for travel were ruined because when I arrived at the airport for my flight I was told it was too late to check my bags, therefore I had to be placed on a later flight which then set off a chain reaction where I lost my rental car and missed various meetings at the event I was supposed to be at my final destination. The main issue was that when I purchased my ticket throughout Kayak YOU NEVER SPECIFIED THAT I SHOULD CHECK MY BAGS 45 MINUTES EARLY OR I WOULD LOOSE MY FLIGHT. YOUR LACK OF CLEAR INSTRUCTION SCREWED UP MY TRIP"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Seating and maybe some different reading material"
Pros: "The attendants were friendly, knowledgeable, available. Flight was ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and cramped. Cold inside plane. "Free" Wi-Fi free only after you downloaded app. Didn't know I needed to down load app before we took off so then I needed Wi-Fi to download app, which cost money. Noisy inside plane. Ear plugs would be nice."
Pros: "Bigger jet, more room. I was able to keep my carry on with me in the over head bin. Friendly staff. Very clean cabin."
Cons: "Though delayed through no fault of the airline, there was very little effort made to hold connecting flight for a few brief moments so that we could catch up to it"
Pros: "Small plane"
Cons: "Air con too cold. Freezing inside the plane"
Cons: "The arrogance and attitude from air crew, ground service staff to lounge receptionist was unreal."
Pros: "Polite, professional and kept us informed"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "Cancelled and automatically booked with no option for a refund unless I waited seven hours in line at 1 AM. Ridiculous especially given demver's proximity to the springs. WEBSITE NEEDS A STREAMLINED REFUND OPTION FOR AUTOMATICALLY REBOOKED FLIGHTS."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled so I'm on stand by for who knows when"
Pros: "Flight itself was short."
Cons: "It took longer to board and wait to take off than the entire flight lasted. Deplaning and receiving gate checked bags seemed to take longer than normal times. One of the attendants (don't know his name, but he had glasses) was not pleasant. He seemed to want to be anywhere other than there."
Pros: "Both flights were early landing which was nice everything moved smoothly"
Cons: "I didn't have an assigned seat in the 22nd flight so when they called I asked about they said wait for ur flight to be called so I went and Sat back down til they called me by name so almost missed my flight because the communication with the staff needs improvements"
Cons: "The people at the check in in Boise were unpleasant. Seemed angry and frustrated with everyone. Our flight from San Francisco to Boise was cancelled and the person on the phone was not helpful at all. The two flight attendants argued at least three times dragging passengers in on their fight. My husband and I were sitting in the back. It was very uncomfortable. Thank goodness I had my headphones. Then the flight attendant followed one of the passengers to the women's restroom at the SF airport to argue her point after overhearing she was going to email the airline!"
Pros: "I had an empty row."
Cons: "Waiting for boarding an extra 30mins. Waiting for departure an extra 30mins. All after having my gates switched, and walking accros the concourse just to get to it."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hours and when I checked in the agents at the front desk offered me a $10 meal voucher to restaurants that were already closed, so it was basically useless. I had to walk to opposite end of the airport just to find something open. My seat and surrounding area were filthy. There was hard, crunchy food on the floor, the tray was sticky and the seat 'cushion' was rock hard. Being that I have a preexisting lower-back condition, sitting in that seat was horrible. When I asked a flight attendant for a wet rag to wipe the tray off they told me I could just switch seats and showed that they didn't care. Basically, it was a disappointing end to a great trip."
Pros: "When they couldn't do their job they turned us over to American Airlines."
Cons: "Cancelled our scheduled 1:30 pm flight from Austin to Chicago for "scheduled" maintainence. We drove 3 hours and spent almost $300 for a rental car to get to Dallas for the flight they put us on, which we couldn't make. We told the check in counter and they gave us boarding passes for an American flight that wouldn't leave until 10:00 pm but that we could try to get on stand by for an earlier flight. At this point we were already missing a concert we were trying to make in Chicago. Another $150 gone. We were lucky enough to make the 8:30 pm Dallas to Chicago with American and arrived at Ohare by 11:00 pm. All in all United wasted $300 on a rental car, $150 of concert tickets and 5 hours of paid time off I can't get back. Very disappointed. PS: they gave us food vouchers at the airport to apologize and they were already expired. They couldn't do one thing right."
Cons: "It is June, not December. No idea why the delays. Got put on multiple different flights due to delays, missed connection and meeting. Turned around to go home at 3 am. It was hell. United is so disappointing, not the first time. Will avoid at all cost in the future."
Cons: "It took almost 15 minutes to get my bag back that I had to gate check. We were not allowed to carry on."
Cons: "The in-house wifi signal was constantly cutting in and out. Made it impossible to watch any of the media that was pre-downloaded on the United app."
Pros: "I liked having multiple lines for each boarding group. I think it would make sense to board from back of plane to front. I think it would make it go quicker"
Cons: "Having to check my bag plane side."
"Say on tarmac for almost an hour in Denver…"
Pros: "The crew was hilarious. I love their honesty and awareness of how terrible it is to charge people $4 for water on a 3 hr flight."
Cons: "The seats, the leg room, the captains announcements, the intercoms sound quality, the temperature, the entertainment, so so so very much."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Crew didn’t wear masks correctly."
Cons: "Frontier did not notify customers where the flight was in a terminal 20 minutes away from the main terminal accessible only by shuttle which only picked up people at the main terminal every 20 to 30 minutes"
Cons: "The plane was delayed 4 hours, they charged me $40 for a carry on. This is a bad airline"
Pros: "a320, arrived early"
Cons: "very inconvenient terminal - make shift terminal and boarding - had better in third word airports"
Pros: "This was an uneventful, therefore pleasant, flight."
Pros: "Air crew were attentive and courteous"
Cons: "It’s a budget airline, so I didn’t expect a lot of creature comforts"
Pros: "Standard bare bones Frontier flight."
Cons: "There's a new terminal at the Austin airport that I didn't know about. Only way to get there was on a shuttle that added 25 minutes to my wait/drive time. Would have arrived earlier if I knew about the addition. Luckily, security was quick. $40 for a carry-on backpack is a little steep."
Cons: "Cold ... very tight seating, non reclining seats"
Cons: "I filled a lost & found claim for my mother's coat she had forgotten in flight from John Wayne California to Austin but haven't heard back even if it has been submitted or not yet. On our way back..Poor Airport service in Virginia, The lady on the counter said I can go but my mom who was on wheel chair cannot go as she wont make it to the gate and also that luggage has been closed 3 minutes ago and we cant take luggage... Three Minutes cost me buying new tickets from South west that was cheaper than you and allow extra bag. Your representative was in moo mood to either help me or compensate me in your next flight.. very Poor. Upon dialing your number I couldn't get hold of a representative to address my concerns. You guys need to improve your customer service and clients call response and make it effective."
Pros: "The flight, the crew, the overall experience had ZERO redeeming qualities."
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that the flight was delayed by nearly 4 hours and we didn’t receive an explanation OR an apology. Nor did they offer any sort of compensation to us as passengers. Overall- one of the worst flying experiences for me in recent history."
Pros: "Sat by great people"
Cons: "plane was 2 hours late!"
Pros: "Cost of ticket. Direct flights"
Cons: "Nothing really to dislike. Frontier is a discount airline, no frills and this is great if you just want a ride to wherever they go."
Cons: "This is really weird. First of all, I booked the flight without paying attention that I was redirected to a flight booking website called Kiwi!!! I wouldn’t even recommend that you guys co-work with this kiwi website. I booked the flight with 20 hours layover, fine, I wanted to, to save money. But I have done math wrong and I realized I have to be on Portland by Sunday not Monday. So I go ahead and try to do manage booking and just change the date! I did but their portal just made me pay for 250 or something I don’t remember for the flight from Charlotte to Portland and I thought they will reimburse me part of original flight price after deducting any fees. But No it’s like nothing really happened and the most ridiculous and unprofessional thing they do is someone can’t reach out to any representative for this company. At all. It’s like they know, they are messed up so they avoid being on calls! How bad this is. Even when I get a number for them it’s not even free call it’s an international number. And after all of these, I get notifications from kayak, I don’t even know why. If kayak is stating that it’s nit responsible for any issues that could happen between a customer and any page he/she got redirected to, so why am I even getting notifications now? If you can really discuss and solve this out for me with the least I can get from this website called kiwi, I would appreciate it. Otherwise, I’m not even using either. Thanks It’s me Muhammad - 9893957358"
Pros: "The seats had lots of room"
Cons: "The flight attendants were very informal and not well groomed. The announcements made were not very professional"
Pros: "Landing and getting off the plane"
Cons: "Honestly, I’ve traveled a lot. And this was the worst experience I’ve ever had on an airplane. Aside from being charged $45 to carry on my small backpack, upon boarding the plane I was immediately uncomfortable with the service. The flight attendants were rude and made every request seem like the most inconvenient thing they’ve ever been asked. I got multiple eye rolls and sighs when requesting service from a particular crew member. The seat belt sign stayed on 45 minutes into the flight and I eventually needed to get up to use the restroom and actually got the response “use your eyes and see that the seatbelt sign is still on. You can’t be out of your seat”. There was also a drunk and belligerent man sitting in front of me, harassing the woman next to him and when she addressed the flight attendant about it, they responded “what do you expect us to say to him that you can’t say yourself?” I was absolutely astonished by this crew member and I don’t think she should be working in the service industry at all. The plane itself was nice and clean, though I was disappointed to have not been offered any water throughout the whole flight, and it was absolutely freezing. Will not be flying with Frontier again."
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 9 hours. Weather on both ends was great. Stuff happens, I get it. But to have no one at the gate and no explanation is incredibly cowardly. And then to do the usual banter at 2 and 3 in the morning thanking us for “choosing” Frontier and other chipper comments rang incredibly hollow. Things like “we hope you had a great flight!” A great flight by Frontier standards would have gotten us to our destination on time. The meal voucher is a complete joke — sending an email for us to get the voucher from the gate agent AND THEN NOT HAVING A GATE AGENT UNTIL 90% OF THE AIRPORT RESTAURANTS ARE CLOSED is just beyond all decency. I will never fly Frontier again and I will tell everyone I know to avoid it like the plague. If you only have one thing to offer (reasonably on time flights) then you should do that one thing really well. Frontier doesn’t."
Pros: "Nothing throughout the arrival to landing except the actual flight crew was at an even decent level."
Cons: "After having flown to Austin for the death of my mother my return flight to DC was delayed for over 8 hours. There was minimal communication and no real understanding of what was happening by frontier. When asked about any sort of compensation the employees were extremely rude and difficult. After so many hours they’re required to give a 50 dollar voucher but failed to do so. After not sleeping for multiple nights due to my situation I did not arrive into DC till 1am and had to drive multiple hours home in the middle of the night which was a major safety hazard. Frontier did not offer to compensate a hotel or anything for the inconvenice. Extremely disappointed in the horrendous service provided by the airline in this nightmare scenario"
Pros: "When we were able to finally board and depart, it was expedited."
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that with numerous delays, we were not even given actual information as to the cause. At one point the, the person at the desk picked up their belongings and left the passengers at the gate. Weather was the excuse but there wasn’t any severe weather in either destination!"
Cons: "HORRIBLE CREW! I’ve never been treated so poorly by a professional in any industry. They were childish and inconsiderate. They made the already horrible experience of flying with this subpar airline even worse! I would never recommend this airline to anyone. I wouldn’t fly this airline again if they paid me to. We were in the 4th row and wanted to use the restroom, they put their cart in front of aisle (horizontally) and told us we couldn’t use the front restroom. No explanation at all. Just said “you have to use the one in the back”. As we turned to walk all the way to the back you could hear them laughing and snickering at us. Another example was when we pushed the call light to ask them to take our 4 empty cans so we’d have room for our laptop on the tray. She came to our seats and asked what we wanted. When we told her she said “you’ll have to wait” then walked away empty handed. It made no sense and they didn’t pick up the garbage for awhile later. Overall, the worst. Don’t fly this airline, EVER!"
Pros: "The fair was low and boarding was efficient."
Cons: "The booking process was terrible online. There’s a charge for refreshments, the tray table is tiny, the staff didn’t seem happy, the seats don’t recline at all, they charge for carry ons, no outlet to charge my device."
Cons: "Same ☝"
Pros: "Nothing. Every single person I spoke with was insulting to me, repeated information they already gave me and showed no sympathy whatsoever. They cost me money, they cost me a day of work and no one even seemed to care but every single agent did find something different about me to blame. What an embarrassment."
Cons: "I couldn't check in online because of a website error. I couldn’t get ahold of anyone on the phone to check in. When I did they said I had to use the website. I arrived in plenty of time to board (there was a 4 minute security line) but they would not check me in and told me to call a number and they made no offer to help me and told me I should have chexked in online. I called the number and they gave me. I was on hold till I missed the flight. The agent told me the people at the counter could help me. I aksed for a supervisor. He offered to reschedule me for Sunday, (today is Thursday) for a $99 fee (the ticket was $63). After arguing for an hour i finally got the supervisor to refund my money but I still had to buy another ticket on another airline to get there. I will never fly frontier again ever."
Pros: "Boarding was good and quick. Flight went smoothly and we arrived when we intended to. Cheap rate, because it was indeed a no-frills flight. Checked my bag because of the carry-on fees. No free water/snacks, at least on my two-hour flight. Come prepared. The seats were a bit stiff, but sufficient."
Cons: "Seat was a bit stiff, difficult to be in after an hour or so. A person larger than me would have had trouble."
Cons: "I missed my flight because traffic made me late and no one was at the counter to check my bag and issue a boarding pass"
Pros: "Boarding process."
Cons: "Long flight, uncomfortable seats, a la carte everything, and prices were high for food and beverage. Vendor booked flight for me, so I did not choose to fly Frontier. Thought I had a direct to San Diego from D.C., turns out, we stopped in Colorado Springs, de boarded, waited an hour or so, then re boarded."
Pros: "Bird was clean; crew was pleasant; flight was on time. Can't ask for much more."
Cons: "The layout of Frontier's planes, understandably, is to maximize the number of passengers while minimizing weight. However, the "lawn chair" (for lack of a better term) seating does not give a sleek, modern look; more of a cheap (and uncomfortable) one. This flight was about 2 hrs, and I couldn't sit in those seats much longer. As for the food/drinks comments, as many other travelers have noted, my suggestion is to either go back to the old school program of no-charge can of soda and small bag of pretzels, or don't even have a drink cart.....you're just making people mad in an, already, stressful environment for most."
Cons: "I was charged $60 for a gate check on a carry-on bag, because I was not aware of this nor informed by the check-in associate at the counter. Frontier is notorious for having rules, and I thought I was following all of them properly. I can't be researching which airline accepts or doesn't accept carry-ons...This should be an inherent right as a flyer. It's not worth the lower fare they tease customers with."
Pros: "The attractive fare."
Cons: "Long delay on return flight."
Pros: "It was a comfortable flight."
Cons: "I didn't think it was fair to charge your passengers $40 for putting luggage in the plane and/or $45 for carry on. Jet Blue didn't charge me anything nor has any other flight I have taken. I was very disappointed. Makes me think twice about using you!"
Pros: "I didn't like anything"
Cons: "It was the worst customer service I have ever had. Our flight was cancelled and frontier did absolutely nothing to accommodate us that night or get us on a flight the next day."
Pros: "Maybe just the price but it makes sense why it was so cheap."
Cons: "I was checking in on my app while I was on my way to airport. Approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes before departure time. The app didn't work and keeps on telling me the app has error. I restarted phone and everything. I had to check in at airport with no bags. When I arrived, there WAS NO ONE at check in desk. I was standing at empty security checkpoint and I could see my gate. The frontier employees were at gate early and never came to assist me. I waited for an hour until my flight left. You can imagine how furious I was- ridiculous for me to have this kind of experience. Thankfully united airlines got me on plane. Never flying frontier again."
Cons: "I won't fly Frontier again. The fact that we arrived into Colorado Springs 5 1/2 hours late wasn't the issue, as weather cannot be helped. But it was the lack of organization in the face of adversity that aggravated all the customers most. I would think a prestigious company like Frontier would have a better Plan B, than to unload us all in DIA, not allow us to retrieve our bags and find a faster way home, wait for a new flight crew, wait longer for a new plane, and once re-boarding to wait even longer because bags had never been loaded onto the new plane and there was no ramp crew. A shuttle to Colorado Springs would have been three hours faster. Think outside the box. Our patience was indeed tested."
Pros: "Planes are newer, seat backs are thinner which gives the impression of more leg room, not very comfortable though unfortunately."
Cons: "For what looks like a competitive airfare consumers get up charged when it's time to get your seat assignment (ie. pay $9 or $15 or $30 MORE for a seat on the plane when it's time to check in - not disclosed when you book through Kayak of course). To be fair, there was 1 seat available for $0, it was in the last row in the middle...1 seat. I also experienced a first...getting charged $30 to bring my backpack on board as a carry-on. Airlines are now charging to put luggage in the overhead compartment. Same carry-on luggage you'd bring with you on any other airline for free, apparently not on Frontier. $30 for a backpack, wow. Apparently Frontier also claims 'we don't participate in TSA Pre-Check', meaning it's great if you have TSA Pre-check, but given Frontier doesn't 'participate' in this program even if the consumer has paid the $100 and cleared to checks to use this program (which is awesome), if you fly Frontier, you can't use it, they won't put the 'TSA Pre-Check' denotation on your boarding pass. Huh? I get companies like this shooting for operational efficiency, scaling lean, profit maximization et al, however this airline feels like a total money suck from top to bottom. 'We have snacks available for purchase'! Of course you do Frontier, of course you do."
Pros: "I think the only good thing was the fact that we made it to the correct airport and didnt die."
Cons: "Frontier WAY overbooked the first flight. Myself and 4 others sat on a bench and waited to see if we could even get on the flight because it was "overbooked". No warning that this might happen mind you. When expressing my shock that the flight was overbooked, the gate attendants explanation was "Well that's frontier for you!" what kind of response is that? When speaking to the others waiting with me to see if they would be flying or waiting 24hrs before the next flight they said they will probably never fly Frontier again. Fast foward to the second flight, boarding went smoothly, the flight was fine and on time, until we landed and there was "another plane at the gate and it would be 5 minutes or so." 20 minutes later we start moving toward the gate only to get a second announcement that there was no crew to dolly us to the gate and we would have to wait til someone got us. Tack on another 40 minutes and we had been waiting in one spot for an hour after landing turning our 2 hour flight into a 3 hour flight. A woman even missed her second flight because of that delay! Seriously crazy that an airline can be so irresponsible with their customers money and time."
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."
Cons: "I missed my flight because they closed the check-in counter and hour before departure."
Pros: "Initially; I liked the price of the ticket"
Cons: "But. That price was an outright lie. That price was only to get a spot on the plane. Then you had to choose your seat with an up barge of anywhere from $11-$35. Then you have to pay for a bag. Zero free bags. Carey on cost $40. $40!!!! And a checked bag is $35. So my low prices ticket actually cost me another $51 plus tax above advertised. Then the plane. Plastic seats that do not recline or have any head support adjustment. I'm 5'10" and my knees touched the next seat. The over 6' gu next to me had his legs spread into both my area and the woman next to him just to try and fit at all. The only complimentary drink was water. No entertainment screen and the most laughable tray table I've ever seen. I had a cup of small Starbucks coffee and it wouldn't even sit flat on the little narrow tray. I used to fly frontier exclusively because the prices where really great and so was everything else. I'll never fly frontier again if I can help it."
Cons: "I lost my bag on a direct flight from Denver to Austin. Once Frontier lost my bag, a representative gave me a claim number and a number to call for inquiries and a status update. I called the lost baggage claim department several times and not once did they answer my call. I had to leave a few voice mails to an automated system. Finally, someone after 12 hours from leaving my initial voicemail called me back to let me know that my bag was found and would be delivered to the my friend's address. The bag was not delivered to my friend's house until 1:30am the following night, which was 36 hours after my flight had landed in Denver from Austin. Frontier also said that they would refund me the $40, but that they happened either. Frontier has very low air fares, but I now know that is in fact very deceiving and ultimately not in fact true. Asking customers to pay $40 both ways to check a bag is not worth it if they can't even safely transport a bag on a direct flight."
Cons: "I arrived at Austin airport one hour before my flight and no one was at the Frontier counter to help with a boarding pass and check my bag in. I had no choice but to miss my flight and they wouldn't give me a refund and basically told me it was my fault because I didn't arrive two hours prior to boarding? The Lady at the Delta counter told me no one had been at the Frontier counter for over an hour! So I recommend anyone spend the extra money and avoid this airline like the plague. Terrible terrible terrible!"
Cons: "Frontier's baggage policy is such a rip off and comparatively over priced. They allow 1 checked bag for 40$ whereas American Airlines and others charge 25$ a bag. For carry on items Frontier charges 60$(!) We were two passengers with each allowed a carry on item. After paying for our 2 bags, we were about to board when the lady at the boarding gate insisted on having us pay for our carry on ( whilst they clearly say one carry on item per person ). We were threatened with being kicked off the flight if we didn't pay for the carry on. Other passengers were also subjected to this behaviour. Never flying Frontier again. Rude boarding attendant, and a rip off baggage policy."
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 6 and a half hours. On top of that the airline charges $35 each way to have a carry on so I had to pay $70 on top of my already $200 something ticket. Then they charged $2 on the flight for a soda which is normally complimentary on all other airlines I have flown on. Then when I called customer service they said there was nothing they could do or credit any of the fees I incurred from paying for carry on baggage and said it was too bad the flight was delayed they didn't care at all."
Cons: "The woman at the check in counter was rude, and by the end she had me in tears my bag was fine on the fight in but she insisted on charging me 60 dollars on the way home I had no money or credit cards on me so I had to beg a stranger for money, and when I gave her the 60 dollars she said with a grin on her face we don't accept cash at that point I broke down not knowing what to do she announced one minute to board and finally they let me on I was a mess by then! Never again will I fly Frontier!!!!!!!!!!! Robin M. Cahill 215-669-1108"
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled and there was no customer service to help us rebook - we are heading to the airport now."
Cons: "Lack of customer service"
Pros: "I loved the economic prices and was very skeptical due to the old saying: "You get what you PAY for" And yet I was pleasantly SURPRISED. Great BIG plane sold out and yet very comfy and nice ride! Staff well-diversed age, gender, race and creed as well."
Cons: "No Entertainment Devices"
Pros: "NOTHING! They cancelled it!"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight the night before, their website gave confusing information (some places said it was on time, some said cancelled), and I was on hold for SEVEN HOURS!!!!! They never actually answered the phone. Guess what? I went to the airport in person, and nobody was at the Frontier counter for 3 hours. When someone finally showed up, THEY TOLD ME TO CALL THE NUMBER I WAS ALREADY ON HOLD WITH! I told him I'd been awake the entire night trying to solve this issue. SCREW IT! In the end, I went with Delta, costing me $441 more dollars on top of what Frontier stole! Delta was fantastic, the guy who booked me was hilarious and helpful, and I'm never messing with this 3rd party nonsense again unless I get a full refund."
Cons: "All frontier cares about is nickle and diming their customers. The flight was not too much less than any of the other airlines, but I should've done reviews before choosing them. They charge you $20 for your seat on top of your fare when you try to check in 24 hours early. They charge more for a carry on than a checked bag. They do not provide anything complimentary during the flight. Drinks are $2. Overall, I spent just as much as I would've with Southwest of American, but I felt ripped off and unappreciated. If you want a loyal customer base, Fronteir, I suggest you change your flight policies. This is 2016 and customer service is everything."
Pros: "The only two things I was dissatisfied with was baggage claim how nearly after 25 minutes finally our bags came. The second was the air stewards. They kept smashing into me and I was sitting on the aisle seat. One was skinny so I don't know why she kept bumping my arm the second one was overweight and even if he sidled he still would brush passengers's parts of their body on the aisle side. The tall skinny stewardes walked very heavily and I was trying to nap and everytime she walked past it woke me up. She needs to learn how to walk lightly that's my feedback"
Pros: "The plane was clean, the staff on flught was professional but I already knew I would have to pay for a carry on so opted not to take one. Stepped on board with a bag to go under a seat which was the only saving grace for a flight with this airline. A reasonable price if you aren't taking much."
Cons: "After the flight I looked at my credit card statement and noticed a LARGE, unexplained charge. (When I say large I mean 4x the price of the original ticket). Turned out that when I checked in they decided I needed my full middle name because the initial wasn't enough, even though that's all they originally asked for. Then they automatically charged me for the change without notifying me! Reported it to my credit card company as fraud until I found out what happened. They ended up refunding the charge, admitting they shouldn't have charged it in the first place, but what a hassle! Not an airline for passengers who care about their money."
