Cons: "Flight delay due to weather."

Cons: "Cannot complain about anything on this flight."
Pros: "The crew was awesome."
Cons: "The airplanewas a bit cramped for such a long flight"
Pros: "Attentive staff."
Cons: "Long flight, no food. Crying kid that kept kicking the back of my seat (not airlines fault). They have a nice movie but you can watch on your phone.... that I learned about with 45 minutes left into a 6-hour flight. They really should have done a better job of letting passengers know about their options while in flight. A shot of Jack would have been VERY appreciated just for putting up with the kid/family. I joke.... but yeah, that would have been nice."
Cons: "Half the attendents were super nice and accommodating, but 2 were quite rude and short with passengers (first class attendant particularly rude). Also, I didn't get to finish my movie before the in flight entertainment was taken away :("
Pros: "My flights arrived early on both ends of a round trip—loved it! Plus, it was great having more leg room than the average airline offers. I'm over 6 feet tall. Leg room is a VERY big deal for folks like me."
Cons: "On the return trip, my plane taxied on the runway for over 30 minutes due to a conga line. As a result, an early arrival pretty much became an on-time arrival, so I'll give Alaska the benefit of the doubt."
Cons: "The way to count Hockey bags is totally different from any other company. Also we were announced the plane is not functional after we boarded. I will never use Alaska again."
Pros: "From checking in the bags to boarding the flight, the staff was very helpful. They really care about their customers. My friend and I were separated on the flight and they did everything to sit us together."
Cons: "I don't like sitting in the middle seat for 6 hours"
Cons: "The flight attendant said my bag was too large for the overhead bin, and would need to be checked. Her demeanor was rude, and unprofessional. She said "well, if you can close this bin, then go right ahead". I closed it very easily. Her behavior made me much less likely to fly Alaska Airlines again."
Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "The crew was overly aggressive with mask policy enforcement. They patrolled the aisles and routine pointed at passengers directing them in a hostile manner to keep their masks on their faces, even when they were trying to eat or drink. They also threatened customers by stating it was a federal law several times. It was very uncomfortable to say the least. I will not fly delta again by choice."
Pros: "The space we currently have."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and engaging"
Cons: "I wiped down my seat area to clean it. It would be nice to know what Delta is doing as well."
Cons: "They lost my bags. Unacceptable"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "the seats are horribly squished and uncomfortable. It’s the only thing that makes the flight not excellent"

Pros: "No comments"
Cons: "Cleaners had not done a great job. There were paper napkins left over in the seat pocket from earlier flight."

Pros: "It wasn’t delayed 3 hours like the first flight"
Cons: "Departing on time"
Pros: "Delta crew is always great."

Cons: "Crew was grouchy and rushed past you without really trying to cater to your needs/ get you what you want."
Pros: "Airbus was nice"
Cons: "Delayed by over 1 1/2 hours"
Pros: "Efficient, cheerful crew"
Cons: "Stop making seats smaller! The added revenue from 10 squeezed seats is not worth the discomfort it causes."
Pros: "I got to board early because I volunteered to check my carry-on. Very friendly flight attendants. Love flying delta. They are always consistent and the movies they offer with the gogo in-flight app are always updated and recently released popular movies."
Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed by a few minutes we still arrived on time."
Pros: "The whole crew was great and very accommodating"
Pros: "Excellent"

Cons: "No entertainment and no place to charge devices."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful, the flight was on time."
Cons: "But the seats are so tight that we were definitely elbow to elbow and once seated I was unable to access even the purse that was at my feet. There was no entertainment and the tray table was tiny, not even an indentation for a cup!"
Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "The seat was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Smooth flight, on-tome departure"
Cons: "Service in business class left a little more to be desired. I had to ask for food and drinks, because I feel off to sleep in the first round. Came to Gate early, but had to wait for agent to put the jet bridge. Only one person was available."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "No complain"
Pros: "Great service all around. As comfortable as you can get for a domestic flight."
Cons: "Food was pretty good, but not up to their usual high standards"
Cons: "Delta staff is not too friendly"

Pros: "Flights were on time boarding was easy. 2nd crew from ATLANTA was friendly."
Cons: "The foldable snack tray was broken on the flight to ATL."
Pros: "This trip into Merida was amazing from start to finish. Something was lost in translation with my handicap assistance in Atlanta, but the trip was lovely nonetheless."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentative."
Cons: "The amount of delays causing us to miss our connection and be stuck in another city for a night before getting to our destination the next day(hopefully)."
Cons: "There was a change in our flight. According to Delta you didn't confirm every leg of our flight and the plane was over booked."
Pros: "There was a threat in the airport which caused the closure of one terminal. It happened to be the one from which this flight was due to depart. The crew was calm and able to get everyone on board with a minimum delay, considering the circumstances. The flight crew made up some time in the air and we were able to land less than 30 minutes after our original ETA. Well done, Delta."
Pros: "Smooth and easy."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "People"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The staff"
Pros: "I had to take a United flight last week for a short flight and once again I was reminded why I ALWAYS fly Delta if at all possible. United crew hid in the galley the whole trip wit lititle to no interaction with passengers. My flight today on Delta was great; food really excellent (Chicken Tika) and the crew was great as usual. Delta remains the best."
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Friendly service."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The leg room and freedom of not having another seat in front of me throughout this flight was great. It made getting comfortable a lot easier."
Cons: "We couldn't hear the overhead announcements at all. Seated right next to the turbine intake on the wing made the amount of ambient noise especially high, so all the in-flight announcements were pretty much unintelligible."
Pros: "Good seat, easy on and off, everything went a little ahead of schedule and smooth"
Pros: "I was able to pick my own flight online easily."
Cons: "Lack of same day, 1 connection, first class seats. Had to fly out the next day because only middle seats left. Frustrating because I paid for first class and had no good choices for my departure day of choice."
Pros: "The crew were AMAZING and made the flight so much better. Boarding was easy. I also love that the pilot acknowledged the Service men and women on our flight."
Cons: "The older plan didn't have some of the perks that I expected from Comfort +... No conformed headrest, no USB plugs... I paid extra for Comfort + and expected some of these things."
Pros: "Great plane"
Pros: "Staff were courteous. Captain explained reason for delay."
Cons: "Over 20 minute delay to begin boarding with no explanation. Boarding process very slow due to excess carry ones needing to be checked."
Pros: "Upgrading to First Class made it worthwhile."
Cons: "As a minority provider of service at BWI, the gate was the furthest from the entry. Gate security is almost always a source of delay here."
Pros: "After the extremely long wait to check bags which made us miss the flight, the date crew got us in another flight...it wasn't direct which is what I paid for, but they did get us out, but i missed an interview because of the lack of crew and a missing luggage."
Cons: "Checking a bag, delta did not have enough crew to get everyone thru to their flights. We waited for 80 minutes inline to check a bag. Then we ran to the gate inky to find the gate was closed less than 2 minutes before we arrived. At least 20 others also missed the plane because of the lack of crew and long lines checking bags. It was frustrating, irritating, uncaring crew checking in, and a bit rude. Then on of my checked luggage was lost enroute - which made getting off the flights even later which made me miss a meeting that I was scheduled to be at. All because you didn't have the crew needed to check in."
Pros: "...the fact that they got us on the plane and back to GRR even though the connecting flight from BWI was delayed and there was little time to make that last flight out of DTW..."
Pros: "I haven't traveled by air for a number of years, it had gotten to be so crazy at checkin. Well imagine my surprise when I was checked in within five minutes of arriving at the airport. KAYAK took care of everything. All the flights were on time, I received email updates along the way and I am so happy I'm planning my next trip already."
Cons: "Even the babies in the waiting area were quiet on the flight, which leaves nothing for me to complain about at all."
Cons: "My inflight entertainment wouldnt work."
Cons: "Lots of delays and sometimes confusing communications from the airlines about departure times."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Be on time"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "You were late per usual. I wouldn’t have a job if I operated like you. It would be nice if there was some accountability"
Pros: "Nothing on this flight was good except for the Captain with constant updates on the never ending delays."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for nearly three hours due to a mechanical problem with the assigned aircraft. We did not get the reason for the delay until nearly 2 hours after the scheduled departure time. Then, when a new plane was assigned. The boarding agents were rude. The flight attendant was rude."
Pros: "Got me to my destination"
Cons: "Attendants were less than welcoming with NO sense of humor. I found an empty whiskey container in the area under the seat in front of me. When I jokingly said that I found it empty and could she refill it for me, the attendant went off on me, telling me that she was too busy and couldn’t take it"
Pros: "Service was American average. Not necessarily a good thing, but it could have been worse."
Cons: "Seats with more leg room required for people over 6' tall."
Pros: "The flight crew was pleasant!!!"
Pros: "It s american!"
Pros: "Very helpful crew."
Cons: "Too often the video screen I’m given doesn’t charge up and it has to be replaced mid flight. This happened again during this flight when 2 screens didn’t charge and had to be replaced before the movie ended. The crew was helpful, but this problem is annoying."
Cons: "No personal entertainment for an international flight."
Pros: "Nice new 737-800 w/ comfy seats, but the plane was nearly 40 mins late due to previous flights."
Cons: "The flight was fine, just be on-time."
Cons: "Constant delays, wrongful promises of when/how long delays would take"
Pros: "Crew was polite, Captain was helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to mechanical issues."
Cons: "Turbulence throughout the entire flight, couldnt sleep, and they didnt offer any snacks because of this"
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Great flight experience overall!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed & ultimately cancelled. Replacement flight required going to another airport. That flight too was delayed putting at risk our ability to make the BA flight to Lisbon. Therefore, we took AA flight to JFK and a TAP flight to Lisbon.did not take this flight."
Pros: "Once we boarded in philly"
Cons: "The amount of time on the ground"
Cons: "Confusing in LAX as to where to go for the flight"
Cons: "First of all, this flight was not good; that was my rating for the first leg of CLE to DFW. DFW to SJC was a disaster due to weather and multiple equipment changes. Overall the flight was delayed 7 hours, from 4:50pm to 11:40pm. I opted to reschedule for the following morning -- and that flight ended up being delayed for an hour due to equipment changes and mechanical issues. Door-to-door I spent 30 hours getting from CLE to SJC."
Pros: "The flight was very short compared with LHR to LAX, so, I don't have much to say about it."
Pros: "Great and safe"
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "One of the flight attendants was nice."
Cons: "AA is now trying to save money (presumably) by doing like Delta: forcing half of us to connect in Charlotte. Unfortunately, the Charlotte airport is not ready to accommodate so many people. The airport looks like it is being renovated, which is fine, but there is no tape/cones to mark off the renovated areas from the walkways. You literally walk through dirt and construction sites. I didn't even think that was legal in the US?! Anyway, maybe it will be worth it once the renovations are complete, especially if AA is going to use it as a hub."
Pros: "The customer service!"
Cons: "Eventhough, I have accumulated over 100000 points. I don't get any seat upgrades or gold status!"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and smooth. The flight was great, seat was comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was great."
Cons: "Inadequate overhead baggage space."
Pros: "Staff courtesy."
Cons: "When I started this leg of my trip, I was completely exhausted having been in sitting position for almost 24 hours straight. Airline made no concessions for travelers knowing that some were just doing a simple trip and those others whose journey was very long. Narrow seats added to stress and discomfort. Airline policy seemed to be "Give me the money and I will deliver you safely. Period" Humanity seems to be last on airline list. Traveling is seriously grueling and unpleasant for all those not in First Class."
Pros: "Comfortable and smooth"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Very nice in flight staff"
Cons: "This flight transfer was totally ridiculous, and required me to exit security, take a bus, get through security again, take another bus, and then wait in a crappy gate with one single terrible food option. Whoever thinks this is a reasonable transfer ought to be subjected to it themselves before booking it for others."
Pros: "The plane was brand new and the crew were very nice. Entertainment system was well-done with good selection of movies. Even unedited movies!! Great."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for a half hour before it was marked as "delayed" and then it was delayed another half hour. If I had known it was going to be an hour late I would've been able to eat a proper dinner. They seemed to be out of every normal drink on the drink cart."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and we were never notified!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight was prompt. Crew was good."
Cons: "Not seated together with my wife. Looked at paying for upgrade, but no seats together."
Pros: "Everything went smooth. Staff were professional and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "More options with first class food"
Pros: "I like that it's open seating."
Cons: "I don't like how there's not de-boarding procedure. Some people try to just rush off the plane."
Cons: "No issues"
Cons: "THe reading light was broken"
Pros: "We boarded on time, we sat in the exit aisle, so we have a little extra room. They offered free movies, which my husband took advantage of. Pleasant flight"
Pros: "Wonderful"
Cons: "Great"
Pros: "Smooth, quick flight!"
Pros: "Again getting moved up to first class"
Cons: "I would have liked to know before I was already seated in Coach."
Pros: "I didn't fly through Charlotte on my way home. I went through Philadelphia which was shorter."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Everything was perfect."
Cons: "."

Cons: "Vegetarian food on first."

Cons: "United has always been good to me."
Pros: "Boarding on time"
Cons: "It was a decent flight"
Pros: "The sleeper seats. Flight attendants"
Cons: "Temperature during the entire flight was too cold! Food was not great for a first class flight!"
Pros: "Same as above. Nothing to add"
Pros: "Arrived early, short layover. The plane to Hawaii was much more comfortable"
Cons: "Being cramped in the middle on the plane to Denver"
Pros: "Short trip"
Cons: "Rude crew"
Pros: "My seat neighbors were friendly. I didn't take a look at the provided entertainment since I had had to wake up at three in the morning."
Cons: "As far as refreshments are concerned, I wish there was a bit more variety in the provided snacks, and the drinks cart came more often."
Cons: "Heading from BWI to Newark to Boston on 9/29 on United. There were delays at Newark airport which lasted about an hour, and meant that we would be super tight getting in for our connecting flight. We had been told ahead of the departure of the delayed flight that there would be someone on the ground at Newark monitoring the delayed connecting flights, in case a flight needed to be held. Well, we actually landed about 15 minutes before our connecting flight was due to take off. However, we quickly found out that not only were the gates closed early, but the flight tracker was showing the flight had actually left early. There was clearly no communication between on the ground crews, and everyone working at the airport once we landed seemed confused about the situation. By the time we got within eyeshot of our gate, the gate agents were telling us that the Boston flight was already closed. This meant that no one was even monitoring the situation for us, and that they made no effort to hold the plane for the five of us who were supposed to be on that flight. Additionally, that was the last flight to Boston from Newark, so they literally didn't give one iota of care for our situation. I had a 10am wedding to attend that next day, and even after telling the agent this information she still asked me whether I wanted to get on a 10:38am flight to Boston, which made exactly zero sense. After all of this, she ended up getting me on a flight into manchester (that flight had been delayed for 3 hours by this time, and was delayed again after I was booked on it) which landed at 1:24am, a full two hours and some change after I would have landed in Boston, and a full hour away from Boston. Luckily, my boyfriend had his car and was able to pick me up. I finally got to Boston around 2:45am. My suggestion to the airport crews is to actually communicate when you have issues like this. It wasn't our fault, but we were greatly inconvenienced and they did not make an effort to prevent the situation at all. Adding to this, our pilot for that first flight told us that the reason for the first delay was that Newark was congested with too many flights into and out of the airport. THAT is entirely their fault for not being able to properly gauge their own capacity and should not have ended up inconveniencing passengers! I end all this with an additional inconvenience- when I arrived for my flight on Sunday at 4:40am for a 5:55am flight back to DC, I was told that my return flight had been CANCELED. Somehow, in rebooking me on the flight to Manchester. So I had to spend 30 minutes on the phone with United to get that fixed at 5 in the morning and nearly missed my return flight due to crew incompetence as well."
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "No snack or drink was offered."
Cons: "At the plane door, the crew had me check a carry-on bag, saying they had no more room in the plane. When we got off the plane, others were pulling two and three items out of the overhead storage compartment."

Cons: "Seat too narrow and not enough leg room"

Pros: "Short flight, so no food or entertainment"
Pros: "Despite delay, pilot made up time in air and we made our connection in Denver. Advice to download United app for free entertainment ahead of takeoff meant we didn't miss the chance to offer movies to our kids on flight. In-flight crew was incredibly friendly/helpful."
Cons: "Gate attendant was INCREDIBLY unfriendly - made no eye contact or completely ignored our verbal greetings/thanks during early boarding w/ our young child. Delayed an hour out of Baltimore, we were worried we'd miss our connection."
Pros: "no delays"
Pros: "Kindness of employees. Bathroom was mostly tidy. Pilot was good."
Cons: "Surprise check bag fee even though it was small carry on and I had no other carry on. Happened both ways for total of $50. Felt like I was taken advantage of. You had to pay for any entertainment. Only food was a tiny bag of pretzels for a 6hr flight. Also maintenance delay."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Beth legs of the flight were delayed. The first delay causing me to miss my connecting flight and he second causing me to miss an import an important dinner in Boston."

Cons: "We booked a flight on ANA Airlines specifically for our trip to Japan. However, upon arriving at the airport to board our plane we discovered the flight was operated by another carrier. Out intent and desire was to fly on ANA."

Cons: "No extra creature comforts."
Pros: "N/A"

Cons: "the plane was cold early in the morning. I was feeling cold in the plane."

Pros: "The plane left on time, the morning after a huge storm that stranded thousands."
Cons: "The seats and sharing the row with an extremely overweight woman."
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was nice."
Pros: "The accuracy"
Cons: "The chairs"
Pros: "the fact we could get tv & movies on our own devices and watch our own choices"
Cons: "Very hard to get it working, not enough choices. I don't watch "stupid comedy" or slasher stuff or news. I look for uplifting, "family" fare. Couldn't get Creed to play, tried on 3 flights"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "always delay!!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for tall passengers"
Pros: "The strudel was amazing"
Cons: "There was only one strudel"
Cons: "My luggage got soaked in overhead compartment. Signed rare book was ruined by another passengers' luggage that leaked liquid and soaked my bag and contents inside."
Pros: "Fast flight, friendly and funny crew."
Pros: "Both flights were early! Boarding was easy"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive to each guest."
Cons: "Well I paid more for a lesser quality plane ride... didn’t like that very much."
Pros: "On time. Professional. Clean."
Cons: "Nothing. As expected"
Pros: "The Crew"
Cons: "It was a passenger on the plane acting real suspicious. I didn’t like that. Also the seats was uncomfortable."
Pros: "THe passengers were well behave during and polite"
Cons: "The 2 hour flight delay"
Cons: "The crew was rude to the passengers. They charge form 9$ to 40$ for seat selection. Charge for a Carry on bag (anything that doesn't fit under your seat). The flights had maintenance issue, hence delayed. I will absolutely avoid traveling with frontier in the future."
Cons: "Connecting flight was delayed by one hour!!!!!"
Cons: "if flight was delayed should at least provide complementary soft drinks..."
Cons: "Delayed 7 hours"
Cons: "There was a malfunction online and I was overcharged for my flight. There were also delays going to and from my destination."
Cons: "I dont even know why you are sending me a survey of a flight i didnt even have... Plus, you didnt send me an email to let me know that the flight was canceled, i realizado that once i got to the airport... you should do something about it"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "There were extra fees for carry on and checked bags, which was not revealed until we printed our boarding passes. In addition, we had to pay to reserve seats. On top of that, I have never sat in such uncomfortable seats. They charged $2.99 for a can of soda on the flight. Finally, they lost our bag, after our flight took an hour longer than it was supposed to."
Pros: "Not Much"
Cons: "Seats are too small."
Cons: "The flight was first cancelled, then I had to wait two days for the next available flight out. Also was charged for my carry on bag. This airline does not offer any complimentary drinks. I will not book this company again, you think your saving a little and end up spending More at the end."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "Frontier has to be the worst airline I've ever flown on. You have to pay for everything "extra". Your ticket doesn't even give you a seat, you have to buy your seat extra, carry on is extra... Etc. might as well charge for using their tray tables while they are at it. I can honestly say I'll never fly with them again."
Pros: "Nice crew. Plane clean."
Cons: "On this long flight from Atlanta to San Francisco, a reclining seat would have been nice."
Pros: "The initial price I paid. Which was very reasonable for a non-stop flight."
Cons: "Paying for a checked bag. Paying for a seat so I could be assured a decent seat. My decent price soon became what I would pay on any major airline. So why would I fly Frontier?"
Pros: "Little."
Cons: "Worst flight of my entire life."
Cons: "Flight was significantly delayed. Advertised as low cost, which it was, but that is because they make you pay for everything except water. Seats do not recline either...bad for red-eye."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over 4 hours due to operational issues (not weather or maintenance). The gate representative didn't keep us informed of the issues and when he did, he was usually wrong. There is a surcharge for everything from carry-on fees to beverages on the plane. The plane itself was uncomfortable with uncushioned seats. Let's just say that if I had to choose between a Frontier flight and a Delta flight that was $400 more, I will choose the Delta. Same goes with any competitor. I will never fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Operational failure by Frontier made the flight late and chaotic."
Cons: "It's very late to get a hotel and they didn't arrange anything for us. We get a credit for future flights and hotel reimbursement. But I'd rather not fly Frontier again!"
Cons: "My bag is still missing i don't have critical medication and I can't even get customer service to answer my calls"
Cons: "Flight attendant from Denver to San Francisco had a bad attitude and was passive aggressive with guests. Perhaps it was a long day for her but at the end of the day you have a job to do and don't take it out on paying customers."
Pros: "Did have good leg room in exit row."
Cons: "Thought we got such a good deal on flight, but had to pay extra for carry-on and even to choose a seat. The seats did not recline, but maybe that was because we were in exit row. Boarded an hour late to clean up from last fight because of (per their announcement) vomit."
Cons: "Frontier charges for seat assignments and even carry-on bags. It's the #1 airline for indignities and nickel and diming its passengers."
Pros: "The crew and neatness"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "Flight price...that's it."
Cons: "Most everything else. Ur charged for everything. Including a carry on! I understand the checked bags but a carry on? Come on now. All seats don't recline. Trays are super small. All my flights were late. I was only given one cup of water."
Pros: "I do not normally complain, but my two flights this weekend were more than an hour late each, coupled with horrible cramped seating, unfriendly flight crew, tons of extra charges, and a dirty plane. I will be trying to avoid frontier flights on the future."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "Flight had uncomfortable Seats was delayed 1.5 hours and the baggage took more than 30 mins to come out"
Cons: "We were stuck on the runway for over an hour after we landed and getting our luggage was a DISASTER. They changed the location of our baggage claim carousel with minimal notice, only to change it back to the original carousel with NO NOTICE. It took over an hour again for our luggage to come out and it trickled in so slowly, that I ended up getting my bag a full two and a half hours after we landed. Awful experience."
Cons: "I was seated between an overweight man and a very tall man, both of whom felt as though their sizes allowed them to infringe upon my space. There were plenty of open seats on the flight and yet no effort was made to alleviate this clear problem."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Unfriendly crew and horrible check in process. I was asked an extra $45 fee for two luggages for my wife and I on the flight back. For future trips, I will avoid booking with Frontier Airlines."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It took over 30 for bags to arrive. After a long flight from one coast to the next at the very least get bags out swiftly."
Pros: "The time of the flights, and the quick security at the terminal."
Cons: "Hidden fees for everything. You book your flight for one price. (mine was about 100$ less than other airlines at time of booking) -Then they have you pick your seat (charge) -Then if you want to check a bag (charge) -Then if you want to BRING A CARRY ON (CHARGE) It ended up being way MORE than the other flights I could have just booked on other airlines. (I booked at $220.00 and by the end of my trip spent $373.00 with Frontier) Also, the returning flight was delayed 45 minutes but I received no notifications."
Pros: "Nonthing"
Cons: "My checked bag was damaged We were stuck on the run way departing and arriving The smell of the plane was terrible Rude flight crew Flight was late"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and I arrived safely. Grateful for these aspects of my trip."
Cons: "Employees were rude. Inaccurate information about flight times provided before and during the flight. The hidden fees were ridiculous, such as $1.99 for seltzer water. Note that you cannot pay in cash for anything. Not so unusual, but a pain for since my debit card was lost. Because flight times were inaccurate, I had no time to buy food during my layover and wasn't able to purchase food on the flight. Overall, I would NOT choose to fly Frontier Airlines again unless absolutely necessary."
Pros: "Your flight's delay was unchanged; I likes its consistency."
Cons: "I did not like paying $5 more for my checked bag. Although I did log in to see if I could check in more than 24 hours before the flight nothing suggested that I should pay for my bag though I could not do seat assignment at that time. I did not like that I paid $5 for set assignments inferior to what my friends got by taking their chances. Although I understand your motives, not showing what the free alternative is seems a bit smarmy. The one hour delay on the tarmac before we could get to a departure gate was not directly your fault, but it was annoying."
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Airport gave wrong information, display showed gate A30 instead of the correct A11, mistake cannot just be attributed to airport but also to the airline for miscommunicating with the airport. Chairs were uncomfortable. But it was a cheap flight so understandable."
Cons: "Boarding was bad, after a delay it seem as if we were rushed onto the plane to make up time."
Cons: "The check in staff at the initial location said our personal item was fine, but then at boarding time they gave us a hard time."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "These flights are horrible- hard cramped seats, no services, not even a cup of coffee unless you pay extra. $40 to bring a carry on bag on the plane. Cost more than any other flight in the long run."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline and website is misleading when it comes to purchasing seats. I was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like how we were notified last minute about our flight being delayed for THREE hours. There was no voucher offered as well. Completely terrible."
Pros: "Courteous crew."
Cons: "Gate change at last minute. Had to wait for plane to get to gate. 1 hour late. Another 45 minutes waiting for de-iceing but that not their fault. Will not use this airline again."
Cons: "I don't like paying for my seat or a cup of coffee. Hate paying for my bags, yes, even the carry on. Just give us honest fares and make it a nice trip - you're going there anyway, right?"
Pros: "When we got to the airport the kiosk was not working, and no one was at the counter. Checked in online, they charged us $45 per carry on (didn't read the small print, because it's so small, and no other airline I've been on charges for carry ons). To check a bag was cheaper, $35 but no one was at the counter. Also, they charged us $20 per seat when we checked in, did not give us the option of a no-charge seat online. (even though we did have tickets) So, I paid an additional $130 for the 2 tickets total. Shabby airline."
Cons: "Having to pay for a carry on. Having to pay for water on the plane!! That's insane! The fact that it's 2016 and there's no entertainment or free wifi. Ridiculous. I fly frontier out of desperation but never as a choice."
Pros: "Worst experience in my entire life. Staffs were rude, unofficial, mean while dealing with passenger..They charge 60$ for a carry on to use a over head cabin. ... Rediculous!!!!! They are very unfair.."
Cons: "all the additional fees, cancels out any savings on fare"
Cons: "The pilots were an hour late after we had already boarded and provided no explanation or appologies."
