Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Cons: "Stewardess was impatient, rude and not helpful. Asked for milk & it was spoiled which made my daughter gag.

It also took almost 25 minutes on-hold to try and get a customer service rep on the phone and by that time I was going to be late for my flight and United would not refund my money even though it was their issue that was causing my delay. There are too many other airlines to have to deal with the rude people at the check-in area and the lack of customer support."

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: "I like that southwest flew out of the same terminal Bc after the nightmares I walked over and happily paid full price for Southwest."
Cons: "2 agents for 300 bags in the same time window is not only unexpectable but poor customer service. Several people including 6 people in wheelchairs were deeply effected by this event not to mention. 100 of passagers without a answers. There was no staff at the 3 gates ! Even before the planes were scheduled to take off."
Pros: "The plane was clean. The food and drink selection was fabulous, although we didn’t get any because the flight was short and turbulent but good to know for next time."
Cons: "Wish I could check in online and have boarding pass sent to phone or print out myself."
Cons: "crew was loud and unprofessional. they were talking the entire flight very loud and then talked about bad experiences they had in the past and their party lives.."

Cons: "seats can not be reclaine, coke for $4.99. Delay take off “"
Pros: "Luckily made it home!"
Cons: "2 flights were cancelled & The customer service was horriible and My wife and I didn't receive the 200$ voucher for next flight we were promised, just all around pissed"
Cons: "Added fees for seat and carryon luggage."
Pros: "They have taken out the seats and replaced them with "skinny" seats. 2 inches less legroom but they can cram 5 more people on their jets! No service, no smiles, no entertainment, From now on ... I say NO WAY am I getting on another Frontier flight! Remember when air travel was fun and exciting!"
Cons: "This company has forgotten what they sell! I would have more room, more entertainment and a better ride on a bus. God help us all, but before he does I'm flying United. They at least smile!"
Cons: "Rude lazy attendants. No effort to offer even water to me on a two hour flight. All they wanted us to do was clean up trash to make their job easier. Nickel and dimed and this kind of service?????? Also didn't need a repeated 15 minute sales pitch for a credit card!"
Pros: "very warm staff"
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: "Staff was very courteous and pilot performed an excellent landing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed three times, no reason given. Arrived at 2:15 am instead of 9:45. Could have at least offered free drinks."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "They have stripped down the seats of this plane to make more room to squeeze in more rows. The seats are incredibly uncomfortable even for my short 3 hour flight. The try table is less than the size of a half sheet of paper - you simply cannot put your laptop up and work. $35 for a carry on, nickel and dime you for everything including a drink. Last time I will be flying frontier!"
Cons: "The two hour delay on the return flight"
Pros: "Even with very rainy weather in Austin, flight left on time. Crew was very nice on both our flights. Plane was clean. Comfortable enough--about what to expect in this day and age."
Cons: "A lot of fees with Frontier flights. Wny not just include in the original fare of the flight?"
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: "Flight was on time. The flight crew was very nice. The pilots handled the little bit of turbulence we had, wonderfully. Over all, a great experience."
Cons: "The flight attendant was extremely rude and condescending to a handicapped man both on the flight and after he exited the plane."
Cons: "Charge for everything- assigned seat - carryon baggage"
Cons: "The initial price did not include a free seat . Had to pay $16.00 extra for a seat."
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: "I was fortunate enough to sit next to two passengers who calmed me down during the plane ride."
Cons: "The staff were aloof and slightly unprofessional. They did not seem to be very confident about the flight, which made me worried and concerned about my experience. They rushed through standard procedures and were not very comforting to passengers. I have never flown by myself before, so my anxiety levels were high and I was extremely nervous the whole time. I wish that they would have been a little more easy-going with nervous passengers, such as myself, because I left the flight shaking."
Pros: "New plane. Good deals on food, though you had to pay."
Cons: "4 hours late on departure, with various reasons given depending on the staff. Flight attendants were good at their job, but could not be both polite and stern (as in, please sit down while the plane is still climbing, or even a "Pay attention, please!" said during the emergency evacuation procedure discussion.)"
Pros: "Flight landed earlier by 30 mins"
Cons: "Luggage was delayed by 40 mins!"
Pros: "Another passenger got a little light headed during the flight and the crew did excellent well on helping and resolving the issue."
Cons: "Charged me for CARRY-ON luggage at gate. First off , this is absurd. It reminded me why I fly with proper airlines. Second, this should have been made clear at time of booking so I realized how much the flight would ACTUALLY cost and book with a more comfortable and professional airline. The seats are awful and don't recline."
Pros: "The flight attendants and staff were friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and they didn't even keep us posted as to what was going on with the flight. By the time we arrived to the gate, our gate was occupied so we had to sit on the plane for an even longer amount of time. If anyone had connecting flights, they would have missed them by far."
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: "I don't usually even do reviews but since flying with Frontier from many places. But being military and flying from multiple cities and going with Frontier I have experience super cheap tickets through other websites, quick check ins, free baggage because I am military and non-stop flights that have great take off and arrival times. Frontier is my favorite out of the many other airlines I have taken."
Pros: "I liked the amount of space I had in my seat that I voluntarily paid to have."
Cons: "The seat itself was not very comfortable. Also, a member of the crew was either not masking her disdain for her fellow crew members very well, or has a wicked case of resting-bitch-face, it was kind of off putting."
Cons: "You should let your kayak users know that frontier doesn't allow carry on bags the way most airlines do and that you have to pay $30 for one. It's deceiving"
Pros: "Price was very low"
Cons: "Plane had a bad part and instead of rerouting another plane or bringing part by special courier they waited for 12 hours for a part. If the CEO or the head of maintenance had been on that flight they would have made accommodations in an hour, not 15. No attempt to get us on the five other flights heading to Atlanta that morning. To add insult to injury Frontier offered a $100 credit for another flight within only 90 days. With bags being $35 each way and picking a seat another $15, that means I get my baggage free only. NEVERMORE."
Pros: "Being notified early"
Cons: "Not flying Not receiving a refund our voucher for the (2) 1-way tickets you cancelled & not being refunded for seats we paid to select on a flight that did not exist. Not having another Frontier option until Monday Being asked repeatedly on a call if I'd like to cancel my flight. You cancelled my flight. Give me half my money back."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "Small and uncomfortable seats with no leg room and no reclining, tiny tray tables, fees like no airline I've used, including a charge for carry on luggage, and a website that is not user friendly. Back to Southwest for us."
Pros: "Cheap price for ticket"
Cons: "Pay for a carry-on?! Pay if you want a soda?!"
Pros: "Our seats had enough room"
Cons: "This was without a doubt the worst flight we have ever taken and we will NEVER fly Frontier again. They were the rudest, most unhelpful people we have ever encountered from start to finish."
Pros: "Cost Supervisor Maggie"
Cons: "I arrived for my 6:10 flight at 5:00 traveling for a one day engagement with zero pieces of luggage and one well traveled companion again no luggage. The counter said it would close at 5:25. Odd that a flight was scheduled to take off while the counter was closed but I had no fears I was well within the open hours. I waited for an associate until 5:30 then tried the automated kiosk. It said see an attendant. Back to the empty counter. Called the suggested 800 on the same sign and am accused of lying about my arrival time to the counter and informed I can get the next flight in 13 hours for twice the cost of the round price tickets. Supervisor Maggie got me on the flight at my reserved rate and adjusted my return flight but I was still out the hotel both in Denver and having to pay another night in Austin."
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Terrible service with lots of delays and was not taken care properly at all. Spent 28 hours in total to reach destination."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "They tricked me into paying a seating fee when I was checking in online by having to select the seat. They also charge a $40 per carry on. The boarding was done horrible, they called zones with only a minute in between so there was people from all areas boarding at the same time. The seats were the most horrible, didnt recline, and were hard plastic with no cushioning. No peanuts or drinks offered."
Pros: "Frontier was fast at boarding and had us to our destanation each leg ahead of schedule."
Cons: "While frontier can rationalize that charging for both checked & carry on helps with efficiency I personally fond it offensive. They also are atrocious in their seating charges. I simply wont fly an airline that feels like a bait and switch used car sales tecniques when I fly. I am willing to.pay more to have simple luxuries like a seat that leans back. Very unorganized system of boarding...."
Cons: "I had a boarding pass on my phone, but when I got to security it wouldn't scan and they sent me back to get a hard copy. Almost missed my flight because of this. I was also unaware that Frontier charges $30 per carry-on per flight. I've never seen that with any other airline."
Cons: "whatever $ you save on initial price they'll get back"
Pros: "The seats are thin, with little padding, but they do not recline. I love that particular part so much."
Pros: "Great price, service and people"
Cons: "No mink lined toilet seat covers"
