The price.

Before boardong the Frontier gate rep kept barking on the mic to clear the gate if you wete not group 1. Group 2, etc. She was sharp and had aytitude in her voice. There are better ways to get people to do something than to keep barking at them. A passenger had her cell ph on speaker and was very loud, before take off and immediately at touch down.

Poor and confusing nternet communication for flight changes, delays and checki-in capibility, prior to flight. Obtaining bording passes. Ticket purchase stated $148.00 price charged sraref $191.00. My frequent flyer account locked and then when I did get help my prior air miles were set back to zero. Upon arrival to Denver faulty equipment delayed disembarking for 25 mins. Excessive bag expenses and seats do not recline,

Flight attendants completely unresponsive when overhead space was filled by a lot of backpacks that supposed to go under seats. Also, kept selling alcohol to people who were clearly drunk and were obnoxious and loud the whole trip.

Check in at SFO was helpful.

Website not usable, perhaps because flight was booked on Lufthansa. Requirement to scan passport rather than enter passport number prevents being able to complete process. United wouldn't let me get a seat assignment til I was at the airport the day of the flight, inspite of my going to the airport the day before. United wanted me to upgrade and pay them more to get a better seat assignment.

Thank you for moving me to another flight when mine was cancelled I appreciate that.

Movies were not accessible - captions were too small. Movie also froze a few times or became jerky. Not sure whether or not it was your issue or the phone itself.

temperature during flight. Freezing then hot, freezing then hot and never a comfortable temp. Food was terrible. Entrees were flavorless and smelled terrible. Time they served food made no sense at all either. Within the hour of getting on the plane, they served a meal which made no sense because most folks ate before getting on the plane. Stewardesses were not friendly (only 1 made me feel valued and welcomed)

Food, comfort, entertainment and treatment by the crew on this flight was spectacular. There was a lot of food, good entertainment and importantly, the seats were wide and comfortable.

Very old plane, 767-300. The bathrooms needed a better and more thorough renovation.

The service on our flight was absolutely amazing, the food was surprisingly great, and the long ride was as comfortable as it could have been in an economy booking.

My entertainment pad malfunctioned the whole time, even after it was reset. Thankfully I had enough things to keep me busy on my own, but it still would have been nice to have.

Nothing, the seats were really horrendous, the head rest was in such an awkward position that it was better to attempt to hunch over and try to sleep on the tray. The lack of leg room as well made it equally uncomfortable. Seriously, the most uncomfortable flight I have ever been on.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
