Airline reviews

Cons: "All good"

Pros: "We normally get nothing better than a 717 on ATL-OKC, but the 737-800 was an incredible aircraft that made everything better owning to COVID 19 factors."
Cons: "DL needs to find a better way to manage food and drinks for FC during the COVID 19 era."

Cons: "Broken monitor and seat"

Pros: "Good"

Pros: "The flight attendant (age gentleman) with the quite sense of humor, and converse with a measure of ease. A role model for others, a nice aptitude than one can learn from."
Cons: "Just keep up the good work and always work towards self development. Treat others the way you would like to be treated, with respect."

Pros: "You're kidding!!!"
Cons: "Seating 3 across. the passenger on the isle seat got served and the other passenger and myself were ignored. NO SERVICE!"

Cons: "Flight was 20 minutes delayed"

Cons: "On my opinion Delta is one of the best airlines. Staff are friendly and they made me feel service. They are really nice and they.take care of been on time and anything you ask them they are there to answer. Great airline"

Cons: "Every thing was excellent"

Pros: "Decent service"
Cons: "I booked with KLM (sky team) two separate return bookings on via SKY TEAM JFK > heathrow (delta) Heathrow > Amsterdam (klm) On the return leg, I couldn’t check my bag all the way through to JFK even though I stayed on SKY TEAM carriers. That should be possible, otherwise the value of staying in SKY TEAM isn’t as valuable to me."

Pros: "."

Pros: "Direct flight from Indy to CDG is great."

Cons: "We barely made it through a storm. Super scary. Even the pilot said we "barely made it" over the speaker. I would rather be hours late getting home than feel like my life was possibly gambled with. I have my pilot's license so I am not unfamiliar with having to create an alternate flight plan when inclimate weather strikes. However, this was scary. My boyfriend quietly had a panic attack while we were on board. Would not fly Delta again because of this experience."

Cons: "It was smelly. Anyone who does not smoke can smell old smoke. Yuk. Also, smells like a neighboring passenger has bowel issues. Ick"

Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."

Pros: "the flight was quick and it was fine. flight crew was polite and professional."
Cons: "i didn’t like that my knees were in the row in front of me, and we hit some pretty scary bumps. i get really anxious about turbulence."

Pros: "They were quick and efficient."

Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"

Pros: "Easy transition from one gate to the next.."
Cons: "The food was not fut for human consumption and the servers did not care"

Pros: "Good choice of video programs."
Cons: "The flight attendant took 25 minutes to appear, and had enough time for one round of service. First class, at least you should get two drinks. Fly basic economy, there just isn’t any reason to fly first class."

Pros: "Got in 1/2 hour early"

Pros: "Alaska Airlines is way overpriced and way less comfortable than Delta. I’m a Delta loyalist forever now!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour and a half"

Pros: "I liked the legroom and the seat"
Cons: "No entertainment screen, no real food, I don’t care how long the trip is, I got first class, I expect first class service."

Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Very minimal legroom. Screaming children behind me kicking my seat during flight"

Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "That one flight attendant brushed me off with a wave of her hand... SUPER RUDE!"

Cons: "Delayed 2.5 hrs. The next flight to Atl left and reached earlier"

Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."

Pros: "Variety of entertainment options, much was complementary, which was definitely a neat addition."
Cons: "There was a bit of a delay right before boarding, which was not the airline's fault, but air traffic control at the destination. Unfortunate, but things happen."

Pros: "Standard Flight boarded fast everything went smooth"

Pros: "Service was excellent in spite of the terrible weather conditions. Flight attendants were very friendly."

Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"

Cons: "Missed our connection due to a 30 flight delay because crew duty day and crew rest and had to rebook on a later flight on the same day. Downgraded from first class by the airline without any compensation."

Pros: "I loved his pilot. His take of and landing were so smooth. I wish I could request him and his co-pilot for every trip I take. The flight attendants served and did not hang around and harass you like some do. They were efficient."

Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Crew lacked any customer centricity, service was poor"

Pros: "When I went into customer service and explained that I lost my flight because of bean at the immigration for almost 2hrs and the woman she say u going on the next flight, one hr later I was heading to my destination Richmond."

Pros: "The only flight that was a bit better was from Mumbai to Hyderabad."
Cons: "Almost the entire trip, due to the following reasons: 1. The online check in process didn't work at all. The Delta staff at the Boston airport weren't pleasant and courteous at all. 2. Poor coordination between Delta & Jet Airways - the meal preference was selected before flight at the Jet Airways website but the same didn't get registered properly, even though the website confirmed to me that it was all set. This resulted in appropriate food not being available to the customer on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam. The customer had to literally starve on the flight. 3. The pursers and stewards on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam weren't pleasant and courteous at all. For anything they were asked, their responses ."

Pros: "They offered water and snacks It was quick"

Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"

Cons: "The flight attendant looked like she was mad throughout the whole flight"

Pros: "Flight attendant was very fun. It was her birthday and made the day fun for everyone."
Cons: "Seats are always too close together - left to right and front to back. A sad reality that only improves for the well-to-do."

Pros: "Easy boarding, smooth flight, friendly staff."
Cons: "Small plane, kept hitting my head on overhead bins"

Cons: "The terminal 52A-J is a disgrace"

Pros: "For me, a flight is “excellent” anymore if it’s on time and no one gets booted off the plane. Both flights were early!"
Cons: "Didn’t look he the free snacks."

Pros: "Flight attendants actually seemed to care about what they were doing. Seats were pretty comfy for once."
Cons: "Flight delayed with no explanation or apologies. Putting two and two together from the airport monitors it looks like they had to swap planes due to a scheduling or maintenance issue. Just another chapter in the neverending saga of delayed American airlines flights"

Cons: "experienced a 1hr mechanical delay. it would be nice if refreshments were served."

Pros: "Actually had leg room on these flights and was pretty comfortable. Excellent crew, food pretty good too on the first leg."

Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Internet slow to access."

Pros: "The row I was in was spacious, I'm glad that I paid extra to move closer to front of plane and then paid extra to get an earlier boarding. I would recommend seat 13C for these types of flights. Legroom was good and I was comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment program was a bit glitchy towards the end of my flight, but I slept inside. Maybe check all screens and such because it wasn't really registering when I would push the buttons."

Pros: "blanket made it comfortable"
Cons: "No entertainment options"

Pros: "I really enjoyed the movies on this flight and they had us change to better seats before we took off"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Surprisingly, AA provided the worst experience of the overall itinerary, compared to Aer Lingus and Iberia. The AA plane was outdated, cramped legroom - despite having purchased an "upgraded seat" and departed 1hr late"

Pros: "Nothing special, but no problems. I did pay for the fruit and cheese plate, which I think is a good deal for the price. Brie is better than you'd expect on a plane! Totally recommend it."

Cons: "tvs weren't working correctly during the entire flight"

Pros: "No entertainment nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight crew was great and it was a very smooth landing."
Cons: "Had to pay extra for seats so we could sit together, near the front of the plane (not really, and no bathroom nearby, very small seats with zero legroom). we were delayed twice (40m then 1h10m) then told to go to a different terminal because now our flight WAS leaving on time! so we hauled over there only to be delayed again several times. we know it was a weather thing, but just wish there was more accurate info about when we would actually take off. seats on outgoing flight from SFO to CLT were GREAT, very roomy, comfortable. Coming back- not so much."

Cons: "Felt sufforcation again and flight was delayed"

Pros: "The plane was comfortable and flight was smooth."
Cons: "The shuttle to the plane wasn't bad, but would prefer not to have that element included."

Cons: "No Gogo entertainment"

Cons: "I didn't get ANY flight status reports until I had arrived and was at my destination for the night!! American did a fine job. I got updates TODAY on my flight and baggage claim for yesterdays flight form you!!! Your service sucked balls!!"

Cons: "Again American Airlines was LATE. It was boarding time and no agent was at the gate. 10 minutes past boarding time the screen shows that the flight is delayed 25 minutes... but wait, there is still no plane at the gate! After 45 minutes the plane arrived, again had to be "cleaned" and prepared for flight back to SF. Customers were told the flight was delayed because Air Traffic Control issues in SF, but there was no plane in sight... Again I felt we were being lied to. The plane was filthy with garbage everywhere still. I will never fly American Airlines by choice!"

Pros: "That this flight didn't get cancelled"
Cons: "Well I didn't like that we sat at the airport for nearly 10 hours after multiple flight delays and cancellations. Why not just let us know we aren't going to be flying out. That way you could reduce the 10 hour anxiety attack and mixed emotions coming with all the drama. I also didn't like that the only flight we could get the next day was into San Jose (not SFO which is what I paid for) there wasn't any offer of reimbursement for hotel, taxi or flight. I also missed 2 extremely important fairs that my company was expected to participate in on Saturday Morning. I didn't like that when we landed in San Jose our bags were in SFO. Then American Airlines didn't want to get us a ride to SFO which we finally received after a lot of arguing which I don't find ideal. I feel like AA didn't take any responsibility. They kept saying it was weather related which I can't accept because other flights (including AA) were coming and going the entire day!!! One customer service member said the plane we were supposed to be on had to be maintenances and another said they didn't have a flight crew. The whole day was a disaster and it cost my thousands of dollars and many many hours of stress and anxiety."

Pros: "I can't comment on food or entertainment and there is no N/A option. I did not purchase food or use the wifi for entertainment. The seat I upgraded to was comfortable and spacious even if it didn't recline (I sat in front of the OWWE)."

Pros: "Pilot did a great job coming into SFO airport. Had to abort landing and do it again."
Cons: "Unless we slept through it, no food or snack was served. It was a 6+ hour flight. I was awake for water and soda offerings but not even nuts. To be fair, I may have been asleep but I woke up every time a drink was offered. We came from a connecting international flight with no time to get a meal. We grabbed a bagel as we rushed through the airport. I didn't pick the flight so we couldn't have more time."

Cons: "Lovely flight, but onboarding groups were a nightmare. Given the chaos, they started forcing bags to be checked early."

Pros: "Entertainment"

Pros: "Good communication"
Cons: "I don't understand why you boarded the flight when it seemed you knew there would be a delay to take off to SFO. We boarded only to learn we would sit at the gate for 30 min and the wait on the tarmac for anothe 40. Why not just delay the flight an board an hour later? It would have been a lot more comfortable in the terminal."

Cons: "Multiple delays, ended up having to change flights, then 2nd flight was also delayed. The only silver lining was the customer service representative, I think named Sofie(?) was astoundingly wonderful and helpful."

Pros: "The entertainment screens and the new seats in business class were very nice"

Pros: "Tebsnacks were awesome!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Customer service was not great. They canceled my flight without any great reason. While I learned about another situation regarding my flight, I was not treated well on the phone by costumer service. I don't think I want to fly with American Airlines again."

Pros: "It's nice to see a large corporation getting back to the basics which helped their company grow CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!"
Cons: "The airport waiting times through TSA check points. It's over kill and an obvious reason just to extend employment. Reminds me of the old saying " the criminals are running the asylum @"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The snacks are good and the seats are fairly comfortable. The entertainment options were nice too."
Cons: "But paying $8 for 30 mins of Wi-Fi is just outrageous. I did not, and will not ever pay that much for internet service. Additionally, my bag was asked to be checked at the gate. Mind you, my bag was a Airline Compliant design, that fit into the overhead bin sideways on the same sized plane going out to Chicago. If the flight were full, I would understand them being cautious about space, but the plane was barely over half full. It was just an annoying inconvenience."

Pros: "Nothing absolute nightmare .. no water .. are you serious"

Cons: "The flight was delayed, the ground staff made no effort to update its passengers as the mood to grow angry, however instead two of the counter people continued to laugh joke and talk between themselves as everyone grew more and more restless by 6:30pm"

Pros: "The flight was >1 hour late, which the pilot told us was due to the LAX controllers changing the landing patterns due to weather. So this really wasn't anyone's fault. But there was a large difference in comfort between this flight and the JAL flight from Tokyo. Seats were smaller, and my wife and I couldn't get seats together."

Cons: "Sits were not comfortable."

Cons: "Crew was not skilled or kind in dealing with others around me. Had the finesse of a frustrated 10 year old when asking other to check their bags."

Cons: "My flight was delayed for 3 hours and they where rude about my flight being delayed"

Pros: "IFE"
Cons: "Delay 1st leg. Had to rebook to later flight. Later flight delayed. Then delayed again due to crew time out. Arrived 4 hours later than originally scheduled. Meaning public transportation could not be used to get into downtown final destination. Made an originally short trip even shorter."

Pros: "How the pilot was insistent on the idea of taking off and flying, although we were informed of two system error messages, alledgedly the first for an issue with the AC, the other regarding the drain system. After our return to the gate for the second warning, I deplaned. Didn't feel safe after that!"
Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "I liked that the seats had chargers (even though I didn't need them) and that they offered entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was over 30 minutes late which ruined my SF plans. The crew was mot welcoming walking on or off the flight. They were also very rude when serving, one even gave me a super nasty look and mumbled something under her breathe because she ran into me. Just a terrible experience. They also didn't tell me baggage prices when I was there just swiped my card."

Pros: "Flight attendants very kind"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful providing updates to our status. They moved us smoothly on and off the plane during the delay."
Cons: "Sitting on the runway for what seemed like hours. The initial boarding was confusing with multiple levels of priority boarding."

Cons: "The plane was freezing and made me very uncomfortable! I asked the flight attendant for a blanket and she told me no. Even though I saw some in first class.... I would have purchased one. It was very hard for me to fall asleep because of how cold I was. Comfort is one of the main things I expect in a 4 plus hour flight."

Pros: "Thank you for the new, comfortable plane"
Cons: "No IFE on 6 hour flight."

Cons: "All 3 of my flights were delayed due to mechanical issues. GET IT TOGETHER"

Pros: "All hostes are nice"
Cons: "İt was Delay almost 90 mins and the plane was so cold:)"

Cons: "I did not like the lack of space."

Pros: "I arrived safely"

Cons: "The crew personnel were rude enough to ask even a glass of water. The revolving belt at baggage claim area started so late. The ticket should include the laggage charges whether it is 100$ or 150 $. I faced so difficulty in paying the baggage charges because of non availability of credit card. As they don't accept cash. Kindly make it easy for passengers"

Cons: "Baggage fees... oh and every flight was late and if they couldn't fill a plane, they would push people back to the next one to combine the loads and have the nerve to say it's a delay caused by TSA. My return flight home was delayed almost 3 hours, I missed my layover and there were no other flights out to my destination til the next day. I was a full day late and missed a very important interview thanks to Frontiers poor ethics."

Pros: "The effort to find the crew to gly the plzne"
Cons: "The irresponsability of the originall crew. Just left with out care of all of us wanting to get home."

Pros: "The seats don't recline, thy is the way for short haul flights"
Cons: "Dreadful bag drop. Awful! What is wrong with management at Frontier?"

Cons: "Comfort, no snacks, no free bags. Zero frills"

Cons: "Flight delayed 9 hours, not good. Not sure I'll take again"

Pros: "Great price for the tickets! Non-stop flights are the best."
Cons: "Plane was an hour delayed then had to wait another 45 min on the runway."

Cons: "Prices are misleading because they don't inform customer that you have to pay for a carry on."

Pros: "Aisle seat"
Cons: "Having to pay for carry-on AND checked bags Horrible website experience - couldn't complete transaction And the staff is even worse - neglected to give me my baggage tags and give my credit card back"

Pros: "Very fast boarding process."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline. The tray table was very tiny, dimensions were prob 5"x3" which barely fit my phone. You have to purchase drinks and snacks but they'll give you a cup of free water but only if you ask. On a 5 hour flight, no food or drink is very crappy so be sure to bring your own on."

Cons: "$40 for a carry on per flight - that's $80 more the cost of the flight."

Cons: "Plane was 2 hours late, no advance notice of the delay, and was on the hangar the entire time. No accommodations for delay and."

Cons: "if flight was delayed should at least provide complementary soft drinks..."

Pros: "Crew was okay although one flight attendant was rude for the entire flight"
Cons: "1) Flight Delayed 5 hours turning a quick evening trip into an unintended red eye 2) When I boarded the plane, it was gross. Floors had not been cleaned one bit"

Cons: "Huge delay, terrible seat comfort (metal) cramped legs, bumpy ride and terrible landing."

Pros: "Nice staff, just oblivious to everyone sleeping at 2am while they carried on and on with their chatty gossip."
Cons: "Baggage took almost an hour to arrive on both legs of my trip. We were delayed in SFO but due to a long planned maintenance there. Airline could have prepared better. No early boarding with my two year old, but only after all the elite and a whole zone 1 of people. Seats have big gaps that allow things to fall and people sneezing on you from behind. Loud crew with obnoxious lights on during a very delayed flight that became a red eye. Why pay more for seats near the loud crew who doesn't take in the fact that we're all tired. You want to sell food? Choose better items. My $3.99 coffee could at least have more than a powder non-dairy creamer. Flight price is so deceiving when you charge for everything on top of it, including where I sit. Lame, awful, corporate money grubbing mentality. I'll stick with southwest (I later learned they had had fewer options for once because they actually considered that a runway was closed)."

Pros: "canceled flights lack of knowledge.."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "No upgrades. No entertainment. NO CONDUSIVE FOR ANY FLIGHT LONGER THAN TWO HOURS"

Cons: "The seats were VERY uncomfortable especially for a 5.5 hour flight!! and the dinky trays severed no...NO purpose!! The crew did as good a they could under the circumstances!!"

Pros: "The crew were helpful."
Cons: "$40 charge for carry-on bag? Charge for drinks?!! The seats does not go back It is a 5.5 hr flight from coast to coast, give me a break! I almost paid $300. This isn't low cost!"

Pros: "The flight was delayed several times but besides that everything was great."

Pros: "The price was right, the plane was clean, staff was friendly. Option on time was nice"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flights were delayed several times, missed half my vacation as a result. Compensation was mediocre, I received a hotel room for 5 hours and was thrown to the streets unless I paid for another day, since my flight was at 12:00am the next day. I will NEVER fly with Frontier, and neither should you. P.S. there is a $40 carry on charge, even when they mess up your entire schedule."

Pros: "Passengers and crew were helpful to me in getting down my suitcase from the overhead."
Cons: "Plane was 3 hours late. Charging for take on suitcase Charging for food and even coffee"

Pros: "pretty much nothing"
Cons: "seats were uncomfortable staff wasnt very friendly carryon luggage was expensive and I had to keep the one bag that i took under the seat in front of me and not up in the cabin"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor customer service. Uncomfortable flight. Both flights delayed. Would never use this airline again"

Pros: "Seat was upgraded at check in because of low passenger count. Plane arrived one half hour before scheduled time."
Cons: "Surprised that I had to pay for a seat, assumed my ticket would include a seat."

Cons: "Worker at the gate was not friendly at all but crew on board was better. I had my 83 year old mother traveling with me & the cramped seating was a little too aggressive. After everyone boarded, they were still trying to sell some of the empty extra legroom seats and I feel at that point they could have sold them at a bargain. I hated to rate Entertainment a 2 but there wasn't any at all. Ive been flying Frontier for about 6 years and it's a shame they now charge for carryons and have been charging for seating for awhile. I'm sure I will fly frontier again in the near future but I feel that the extra charges took a lot away from the excitement of obtaining a good deal. The pilot seemed very competent and friendly."

Pros: "Fight boarded early and left on time, and my luggage arrived without an issue."
Cons: "The added fees for everything. I prefer airlines who tell you upfront what your total cost will be. After the added cost for checked bags, carry-ons, snacks and beverages and the $99 fee to change or cancel your flight, I feel I would have spent less if I had chosen a more expensive ticket to begin with. i doubt I will fly this airline again."

Cons: "I wish you will take cash payments for meal purchase"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Unprofessional crew. Cattle call boarding practice (all of zone 1 and anyone with a carry on) meant that although I paid more to be in the first row, I had to put my bag 7 rows back. I couldn't have my personal bag with me in the first row at all, which was hugely inconvenient. Doesn't seem like that should cost someone more, even if there is a bit of extra leg room. Nickled and dimed for everything, including carry on bag, beverages, snacks. No entertainment options."

Cons: "45 bucks for ckecked bags and you have to pay for your carry on"

Cons: "Terrible flight delays, due to plane maintenance missing our connecting flight. Only after speaking to several people were we able to get a ticket on the next flight. We were offered standby and a ticket on the flight the next morning. They would not schedule is with another airline as they were not affiliated with any one. And gave us excuses as to why they could not accommodate us with another carrier. Very uncomfortable flight"

Pros: "The flight ride was so smooth as well as departing and landing smooth"
Cons: "The flight had delayed for an hour. Why?"

Pros: "Flight was on-time."
Cons: "We had to wait for an hour for a check-in attendant at one of the largest airports in the world where there are no shops or services. Let me know when you fix that because I'm not likely to consider Frontier again until it is fixed."

Pros: "We didn't crash and I had lots of leg room. I had to unknowingly pay for the leg room."
Cons: "They advertise really cheap flights however they don't tell you that you'll have to pay $60 for a carry-on bag. That's right.. any Carry on bags. Checked bags were also $60+. I also had to pay $50 for my "premium" seat because I didn't choose a seat at check-in. By premium they mean you get a few extra inches of leg room. On a 4.5 hour flight plus 1 hour of sitting on the runway, the only free amenity was a small cup of water. I will never be using this airline again."

Pros: "It was cheap way cheaper than any other airline!"
Cons: "You get what you pay for, but for a short trip this is the way to go if you want a cheap flight. Just remember to pay for your carry on/ luggage prior to your trip otherwise the price doubles."

Pros: "overall the aircraft and schedule was ok"
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive at our destination. It was an absolute nightmare to get it back!! I had to call the airline about 50 times, where most of the calls were not answered. I had to keep calling and following up. When the luggage did come they only delivered one of the 2 pieces. The calling marathon had to be resumed most of which went unanswered! We finally had to rely on the delivery company to provide alternate numbers where there was a possibility to get an answer. Absolute nightmare!!! Never never will I travel this airline."

Pros: "Sat closer to the exit door"
Cons: "Left the gate late, delayed flight up to 50 minutes"

Pros: "People were great. Boarding was early"
Cons: "Once we landed we sat on the airstrip for 1 hour. Ruined the early landing since it was now 12am instead of 11 pm"

Pros: "I just slept through the flight."
Cons: "I just slept through the flight."

Cons: "When retrieving out luggage at midnight, the wait time felt extremely long and made me wonder if anyone was working?"

Cons: "I was helping my mother - in - law check in and board - she needed wheel chair assistance. We were in line to drop off a bag that we had checked in online an hour before the flight. There were 5 people in the line with only 2 reps helping. Since I hadn't printed the boarding pass, I tried to print the pass at the self-help kiosks getting the message that I needed to see an agent. The cut-off for checked in baggage is 45 mins before the flight, however the reps were making no effort to expedite the service. In 15 mins they had helped 2 people making us the 3rd in line and the line had grown to an additional 5-6 people behind us. 45 mins before the flight they refused to take in any bags for checking - in. Since I was able to take the checked in bag with me, I asked that the agent print the boarding pass for my mother in law and call for wheel chair assistance. The agent called for wheel chair assistance but refused to print the boarding pass! The one thing that the ticketing / check in agent should be able to do is to print a boarding pass for a reservation that is fully paid. Because of this my mother in law had to miss her flight and we paid an additional $99 to get onto the next flight. I was so taken aback when the agent refused to print the boarding pass, that I did not even know how to convince her to do her job. This is probably the worst experience I have ever had with any airline!"

Cons: "The web site is deceiving in that it makes you think every seat is an upgrade and no regular seats remain. A distinct "no upgrade" choice needs to be present for people to see. It makes one think, how much money Frontier has made from people due to their purposeful website's lack of clarity. This is pretty pathetic."

Pros: "We arrived safely."
