Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "More snack choices"
Cons: "First plane broken, second plane broken, overall 4 hours late, 2 hours of that sitting in a hot plane"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled on Sunday and they couldn’t get us out until the following Saturday. So we had to cancel our reservation and get refunded... except American says talk to royal jordanian, royal jordanian says talk to air booking. Air booking isn’t reimbursing us and want US to pay $400."
Pros: "Nothing was better than standard"
Cons: "It felt like the staff had instructoions not to smile not even once. The food was beyond terrible. I’m not asking for hot bread like other airlines do, but at least serve it at room temperature instead of super frozen. Same for the butter. The continental breakfast had nothing continental about it"
Cons: "The legroom on AA's new planes is atrocious."
Pros: "Seats which I choose where very comfortable."
Cons: "Would have like a choice in food severd"
Cons: "Mechanical problems deejays the flight and I missed my connection. Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Ease of check in"
Cons: "DIdnt understand why a seat as not assigned. A few people had the same issue and the gate agent suggested we may not get seats. Very stressful given he need to make an international connection. Gate service was not available early enough."
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"
Cons: "Wanted more food. Haha!!"
Cons: "No carbs free meals."
Pros: "My Mom was very grateful for the friendly assistance as she is wheelchair bound and was flying aline. Excellent service!!"
Pros: "Courteous personnel"
Cons: "Almost wouldn't let me check my luggage to Europe as I arrived an hour in advance to flight from Austin to Dallas, ground crew claimed I should've been there 3 hrs early. Says so nowhere. Then flight departure was delayed! No individual video screens, no choice of movies. No food."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Attendants were nice."

Pros: "It's just like very other airlines."
Pros: "Quick boarding to make up for a late flight arrival."
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: "Airport expansion"
Cons: "Due to construction traffic is a problem but still manageable"
Pros: "The stewardess/flight crew were awesome."
Cons: "Airport staff, tight seats and boarding process."
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"
Pros: "wifi was great"
Pros: "Plane did not crash."
Cons: "Has anyone at AA ever watched the insane boarding process? No running water on the plane, not hot anything (coffee, tea, food). Generally terrible experience, like most of the airlines."
Pros: "Service was not only on time we landed early as oppose to me losing 1300 usd on my original flight to dallas for work Friday which I didn't make and cost me out of pocket"
Cons: "Staff behaviour"
Pros: "Staff was wonderful."
Pros: "Arrived. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Seat too small, cramped leg room. Was told there was no space for my carry-on and to check it, but there was plenty of space when I got on plane."
Cons: "The 20 minute wait before we could dock at the gate An annoying air vent making an intermittent noise... Something broken obviously"
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: "I did not like any of it."
Cons: "We couldn't hear any of the group calling. There were so many different reward members that by the time group B was called I had to check in my baggage. I was not able to pick another seat during ticketing. When I fly for business I generally have a carry on so I can quickly catch my ride however dour to check in of my baggage I had to wait another 30 min before I received my baggage. Air hostess were not very friendly or helpful."
Pros: "I prefer this size plane to the other alternatives."
Cons: "No snacks were offered at all."
Pros: "The flight was only 30 min"
Pros: "fly was on time"
Pros: "Boarding was fast."

Pros: "Flight attendants allowed me to move into an unoccupied seat to have more room. Very polite."
Pros: "Boarding was pleasant, flight attendant was very nice. Served several snacks and choice of drinks."
Cons: "no entertainment"
Cons: "I paid $40 extra to select a seat and the seat was a middle seat and very uncomfortable and a rip off."
Cons: "Terrible customer service, multiple flight cancellations"
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."
Cons: "Headphones should be provided in flights"
Cons: "Got cancelled"
Cons: "When going to website to link to free entertainment the flight is wifi capable but you must purchase Internet. Not sure why they did not make the move to add free entertainment on a 4+ hour flight."
Pros: "Crew were nice and as accommodating as possible."
Cons: "On a round-trip, both airplanes on outbound and return flights had mechanical failures, resulting in over 3hr delays both times. This was for a short Austin-Dallas round trip, where I could have driven in less time than what I spent delayed at the airports. I can only conclude that AA is skimping on maintenance."
Pros: "No weather issues this time"
Cons: "Nothing good flight"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Crew didn’t wear masks correctly."
Pros: "Flying frontier was excellent for a short trip. Took off early, landed early, very pleasant crew, boarding was smooth, not a problem with anything at all!! Will definitely fly them again when possible."
Cons: "Nothing that I didn’t like for a budget airline."
Pros: "New seats, comfy, legroom, pleasant FAs"
Cons: "Only coke products. Asked for tomato juice - was told it would be $2.50. Nope."
Cons: "Baggage fees higher than expected and seats don’t recline"
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: "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: "Added fees for seat and carryon luggage."
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: "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"
Cons: "Delayed three hours and Frontier nickle and dimes you for everything."
Cons: "I missed my flight on a Thursday and won't be able to leave until Monday morning. Very unhelpful at the original gate in Austin and waited for 2 hours in line to change my 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?"
Cons: "HIDDEN. FEES. They charge you at least $17 at check-in to select ANY seat, and another $40 for a carry-on. The tray tables were (no joke) 4 inches by 8 inches, and barely fit a soda can, cup of ice, and snack. Seats were also hard as rock."
Cons: "Well atleast coffee supost to be free on the bord"
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 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: "got me there on time"
Cons: "cramped flight"
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.)"
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: "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."
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: "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."
Cons: "Didn't make flight because online boarding pass would not scan, and there was no crew at ticketing counter to assist. I was told by TSA, and not the airline, that the same crew at the ticketing corner moved to the gate to board people 45 minutes before flight. Because I was there 40 minutes before flight, I got zero customer service. This was my first and last time flying Frontier! I wish zero stars was an option."
Cons: "The flight crew prior to getying on the plane were rude and outlandish. They have no tact and were not respectful to travelers. You have to payfor what others consider complimentary services. In addition, the flight was delayed with no explanation. I will not be flying frontier again."
Pros: "Good crew and cheap flights."
Cons: "Both destination and returning flights were delayed. I knew about the carry on and checked baggage fees, but it was still a bit of a hassle. Make sure you pay during booking to get the best prices. I did NOT know all drinks and snacks were an extra charge. If you know all this ahead of time and don't have a time schedule, it is a great, inexpensive company"
Pros: "Can't believe I was charged $45 for a carry on bag each way. Soda and coffee starts at $1.99. Was not informed byKayak and priceline that these fees would be in place. The only good thing is this is a nonstop flight Austin to Las Vegas that on united and American has layovers."
Cons: "I will fly Southwest next time because the fees added up to almost $100.00"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "You shouldn't charge for a carry on."
Cons: "Frontier offers a deal upfront on your ticket price, but does not tell you that the only baggage you are allowed to carry on free is one personal belonging, like a purse. At the counter, they then charge $50 for a small carry-on suitcase( ONE WAY!), or $40 one way if you let them check it on, adding an extra $100 to the price of your ticket, making other major airlines ticket prices more desirable! Then, on board, you find very narrow seats that don't even recline at all, and they offer you nothing on the flight - NOTHING AT ALL, unless you pay for it!!! Then to top off their deceptive treatment of their passengers, their on-line web site encourages you to choose your own seat on the plane, never telling you that you'll be charged each way for that personal choice! If you are able to figure out this trick and continue on to where you allow them to randomly assign you to a seat ( usually such seats are the worst ones on the plane: the dreaded middle seat) you will not be charged! I hate underhanded, sneaky deception and poor service like that and I will NEVER fly Frontier Airlines again!!! There's no way I will encourage greedy dishonest behavior like that and I'll tell all my friends and family members about my experience!!! I hope they rot in hell!"
Cons: "Everything..... To begin with I didn't even get to go on the flight I was scheduled for because I got there and when I went to print my tickets.... It was impossible to because it advised me to see the counter person... Well there was no one at the counter so I proceeded to the office... No one was at the office! I ended up missing my flight and losing my money... It seemed like some sort of scam ... Basically a loop you could not get out of and no one es there to help.. Worst experience!"
Cons: "I was charged for everything and your flight was not much cheaper! Luggage carry on, not even a complimentary soft drink! The landing shook my teeth! Honestly not impressed."
Cons: "The entire experience was horrible. The flight was delayed 6hours in which initially it was due to fog, then no plane available as all.other airlines departed, and there was no representative available during the entire process for Q & A. I had to take another in order to arrive in ATL for a business meeting which I missed."
Pros: "That I finally got home after a long wait in the airport not knowing what was causing the delay."
Cons: "After you add in all of the extras like paying for your seat and carry on baggage, the price isn't as attractive as represented. It was a topic of discussion on the flight when we finally got off the ground. There were 5 gate attendants working the flight that had no earthly idea what was going on and when they did find find out they wouldn't share the information. Overall not a good experience. I can't see a situation where I would fly Fronteer again."
Pros: "Getting off the plane. It was a moment to celebrate- my last Frontier flight ever."
Cons: "The charge for carrying ON a bag. Being told plane was at gate, but couldn't leave at 7a as sched because pilots needed rest. Then being told at 10a that plane was in Houston. Then ultimately leaving at around 11a."
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."
