Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Although there was an issue with a passengers’ dog(who ultimately had to be asked off, before we could leave). It was handled quickly and our flight departed on time."
Cons: "The entertainment didn’t work/have a signal until our descent to land."
Cons: "Wonderful wheel chair service."
Cons: "I was not on it"
Pros: "Everything about the flight operated smooth and comfortably. Efficient boarding, surprised and delighted to have inflight entertainment for such a short flight where most other airlines use older planes without tv/movies."
Cons: "did my pre flight check in at about 3pm for my 8:50pm flight. I didnt immediately receive my boarding pass via text but figured it’d come in the next 4hrs. It didn’t and I had to go through the line for a paper pass, then at about 11pm when I was already home after my flight I received the text containing my boarding pass. Obviously a simple hiccup in an automated process but laughably pathetic in terms of delivering a simple service for paying customers that’s designed to save you, JetBlue, time and money"
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "Cheap on the food"
Cons: "Our stewardess annouced that the pkane had technical issues with tge mobitors. Apparently the pmane was in use all day on multiple routes. They tried resetting it a few times but it was unsuccessful. The screens froze in the middle of your program and would not recover. We were directed to contact the jeyblue 1-800 number for some type of credit"
Cons: "Plane was delayed 90 minutes for takeoff as it came in late."

Pros: "The extra room. The staff was friendly."
Cons: "There could be additional snacks available especially on a flight that’s over 3 hrs. I had a short lay over in JFK and wasn’t able to buy a meal and very limited snacks on board so I left home 2:00 to be early and arrived at my destination at 2:30pm with only chips to eat"

Cons: "I had no in flight entertainment and warm, more nutritionally dense food options would have helped."
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays. They knew the plane was going to be delayed very far in advance yet they didn't notify us. The board at the airport and online even said it was an on time flight up until the moment it was originally supposed to depart (not board). So they knew ( because they didn't let us board) but never updated their info. A simple email would have saved me from getting up 5 hours early just wait 5 hours in the airport. Fu ck them for that!"

Pros: "Easy and clear instructions on boarding."
Pros: "Flight from ny was great"

I’m Upset at the fact that we were told it was a 20 minute delay then it became an hour delay on ground then it became another 45 minute delay in traffic then another hour delay in the sky. Disappointed because of this. Communication was horrible! N to think I just signed up for JetBlue credit card"
Pros: "Free internet, great landing."
Pros: "I like the hospitality of the crew members everyone was so warm and friendly and make u feel right at home the pilot let u felt easy telling you everything going to be ok and it will be a quick flight over to orlando hearing that let me felt a bit of ease its a great experience i would recommend anyone flying to consider jetblue"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that we were delayed so long and for all the passenger that had to check in few hours before flight started to feel hungry because of the delays think it was delayed over 3 hours"
Pros: "Great trip, but the mini tv wasn't working which was a bummer."
Pros: "Flight was good, fast , even though plane was late. I always enjoy flying Jet Blue"
Cons: "No gluten free snacks were served. Maybe have more selection so everyone can enjoy."
Pros: "My flight was already a late flight and boarded 15 minutes past the boarding time. In addition the plane had to return to the terminal after getting ready to take off because of the PDA system needing to be replaced. I am all for safety first but this threw off my entire plans for my destination."
Cons: "The crew was not as friendly and poor communication."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. I like the Dunkin Donuts coffee"
Cons: "My overhead light and tv we're both not working. The stewardess was rude when I brought it up. Told me to move to the next empty seat dismissively. I bought a window seat on purpose and did not want to move. My concerns were left unaddressed"
Pros: "Comfort was very good. The level of communication when things changed was very good. Good crew."
Cons: "It was obvious that they would not accommodate all carry on bags, this could have been announced earlier and allow for mutual benefit to both parties. JETBLUE cards benefits are only allowed to American residents as if they are the only one who supports them in travel"
Cons: "When the flight is cancelled you need to find a solution for those passengers who travelled that day by bus or car just to catch the flight!!! At least a hostel to sleep over night or give them back the money or let them travel with another company...not to wait 12 hours on the airport!!! Thats not professional at all!"
Pros: "Delayed 1.5 hrs, then sat on plane for two hours before being returned to the gate, re-boarded 45 mins later and sat on the plane another hour before finally taking off. We were supposed to leave at 10.40, we didn't leave till around 4."
Pros: "friendly crew"
Cons: "long delay"
Pros: "Flight was smooth once we were in the air."
Cons: "We had to wait on the plane prior to take off for quite sometime because the bridge gate would not disconnect. One of the flight attendants was not so cordial."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Couldn't understand captain, televisions would short out, wifi was super slow and pointless."
Cons: "The flight started boarding late and we took off late. We arrived at our destination 30 min late"
Pros: "Friendly crew with nice food"
Pros: "Good, friendly, competent service all around."
"We waited for bags in Tampa airport for 2 hours. Also, no food or even water. Not going on it again"
Pros: "On time. Boarding easy and organized. Crew were nice."
Cons: "No drinks at all to "minimize contact". A bottle of water would have been nice."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly AMD nice"
Cons: "It would have been better if my chair reclined and that baby didn't cry my whole flight"
Cons: "Frontier seems to always have friendly staff"
Pros: "Crew was grumpy. So glad that I brought my own water and snacks for the long flight! Why would I pay $2.99 for water on the flight? No Wi-Fi, AT ALL. Ridiculous to have to pay for everything. Never again. You guys need to update your system. No savings at all."
Cons: "Stop charging for every little thing. Train your crew better to deal with travelers. Update your services."
Pros: "Air crew were attentive and courteous"
Cons: "It’s a budget airline, so I didn’t expect a lot of creature comforts"
Pros: "the crew was very welcoming"
Cons: "1the seat was extra super uncomfortable. There was a big metallic box under the seat in front of me so I could not extend my feet or put my personal purse under the seat. The space for my knees was very limited. I did not understand the entertainment options. II d had to pay for moveis on my phone?"
Cons: "Getting off the plane my stroller wasn’t there. Then I was directed to 3 different places before I could find it near the baggage area. The reason I had the stroller... to help me Navigate an airport with little children. Totally defeated the purpose. Never again frontier. You all suck"
Cons: "It’s was delayed 3 hours in buffalo ."
Pros: "Couldn't get buttons to work on previous page. flight was fine"
Pros: "They informed us about 5 hours in advance there was a delay."
Cons: "The flight was very late. They gave me a voucher for $50 as a consolation, but it is only on purchasing a new ticket within 90 days, not very helpful. Since they nickel and dime you for seat selection, checked bags etc, it would be nice to at least use the voucher for seat selection on my return trip."
Pros: "Very good. All as is supposed to be"
Pros: "Nothing. Absolutely nothing. I mean I got where I was going and didn’t die, but that’s about the extent of the positive things I have to say."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, no beverage service. Up charge for literally everything, carry on’s were charged, as much as checking bags. I’ll be avoiding frontier like the plague in the future."
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding was smooth. The crew was great!"
Pros: "The flight was clean and nice we enjoy crew they are friendly I had sugar was down and she give me orange juice very fast thanks for that"
Pros: "price was right"
Cons: "maybe a little cramped"
Pros: "price and non-stop flight"
Cons: "The flight was 60+ minutes late, due to another plane sitting on the runway. The other plane kept passengers sitting on the tarmac for over an hour. We were told the plane had mechanical problems. The waiting area was so crowded with people it was people standing all over the place...it turned out that 2 flights full of people were waiting there. When we finally boarded, the plane had to be refueled and the plane had to be started up by being jumped or something because one motor was not working normallly; this was a bit frightening. Staff was not even smiling, or even comforting when we boarded. Brief apology by pilot."
Pros: "Flight was great. Checkin etc was great"
Pros: "The service was Ok, but our flight was 4 hours delayed and it wasn't mechanical or weather related delay, the airline made a scheduling error, we almost missed our car rental and we didn't get to our destination til really late at night when it should been there in the daytime. Overall, won't fly with them again"
Pros: "Direct floght for the route with really no competition for the same airports and similar times. Checkin staff was courteous, embarking was swift, flight on time, safe, no issues."
Cons: "No quick bag drop off option, very slow to be processed. Tons of fees, they really add up and if you pay the extras it can easily be more expensive than the competitors. Super rude and careless flight attendant. Asked for bathroom permission for my 3-year-old once we were at full altitude and she denied. Sure enough 2 minutes later an adult just went for it. Then as the seatbelt sign was off she was blocking the aisle with the trolley. When I asked kindly to make room, she didn’t even acknowledge that she heard my request... she did, eventually, without even looking at me. Also very slow to get the stroller and a bit slow to get the baggage but these latter issues may be airport dependent."
Pros: "I thought that everything went fine except for the weather delays but I know that is not the fault of the airline."
Pros: "Some questions aren't relevant to my flight. The pilot negotiated turbulence, and we arrived early."
Cons: "Fronitier seems to have electronic glitches on their website and check in kiosks"
Cons: "Was late leaving las vagas"
Cons: "Comfort was almost unbearable"
Pros: "The crew on this flight was good :)"
Cons: "Beverages are not included :( AND I couldn't eat the bag of nuts I had purchased as my meal. Totally understand about nut allergies, but that's one of the few things I can actually have as a snack. I also did not like the lack of space for a tray, which really didn't matter anyways since you don't provide comp beverages or snacks."
Pros: "We took off and landed on time. The support staff was friendly. The airport in Orlando was a God awful mess so no matter what airline you were flying today out of Orlando, it would have been enough to make a priest swear We missed our flight but were rescheduled in a very timely matter by very pleasant Frontier staff."
Cons: "I absolutely hate all the fees for this and that. I started flying in the days of stewardesses who dressed up (not that a give a fig about that really) and meals were included. It's really difficult to come to terms with being charged for water. I made a mistake when booking and had a checked bag outbound and then a carry on returning which should have been a checked bag. I played hell trying to get this matter straightened around a few days before and then again while I was checking in for the flight. I finally requested to speak with someone higher up the food chain, and she managed to make things right in short order. Of course, there was no $5 refund. Why did it take 20 minutes of time to do this? In order to save us both from this type of thing in the future, I will avoid booking with Frontier. I think one has to be more organized than I to do things with a no frills airline."
Pros: "Clean environment. Friendly staff."
Pros: "We had no issues boarding."
Cons: "The staff were angry, I paid for a direct flight and had a layover added after booking, staff were not happy, they charge for picking a seat, having a soda, seats don't recline, the plane was dirty, flight was late taking off. Instead of getting into Philadelphia via a direct flight early in the afternoon, we had a layover, delayed flight and I got into Philadelphia at rush hour."
Pros: "Friendliness of my Mothers assistance with her wheelchair."
Cons: "The delays were ridiculous."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I was not informed of the cancellation until 3 hours prior to flight and there was no one at the counter that could help !! They stated it was because of weather but when calling frontier directly it seems it was more because they didn't have safe and the earliest I would be able to come home on another flight of there's was Friday! No help trying to get another flight . I had to spend almost $600 on a flight from AA"
Pros: "On time, went smoothly. Didn't buy any food"
Cons: "On line check in confused me and I bought baggage plan I didn't want. Called rep and she said she would remove charge for a fee but so far it is still on my credit card. She added another baggage fee to my credit card. Was unable after that use the on line check in as it insisted I owed money. Was able to get boarding pass at the check in counter with no more fees. Very confusing"
Pros: "Friendliness of crew. The crew moved me and my party near the front of the plan so that we could get off first in hopes that I would make my connecting flight."
Cons: "The plan sat in Denver for over 30 min. It was stressful wondering how I was going to make the connecting flight to Seattle. Seattle was late boarding. I am unsure if I will recommend to fly and fly frontier again because of this experience."
Cons: "Flight delayed again, upon arrival in Seattle we were unable to find our car seat. The Frontier rep was not upstairs nor at the carrousel even after being paged by the port of Seattle. Eventually, we found it in front of Delta's baggage claim with no bag on, no indicator (signage) at all that it was part of Frontier's flight."
Pros: "Both flights were on time."
Pros: "Very professional"
Cons: "The seats weren't uncomfortable, and the service lacked to the point were even soft drinks were $2"
Pros: "wait times kept changing and got totally ridiculous. my uber cost me twice as much and i was delayed 4 hours. never flying with you ever again."
Pros: "Planes were in good condition and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "First, the flight was late which cut down my 90 min layover by 30 minutes. I understand that weather can be a HUGE variable when flying-however, when I asked a flight attendant if they had connecting flight information while we were waiting on the tarmac for over 30 minutes to get a gate when we landed- she responded with "I'm on the same flight as you, I don't know"....really?! That is NOT customer service and I asked very politely and was responded to rudely. The response of the people all around me was confirmation that it wasn't just in my head. Completely uncalled for. It would have been simple to say, "Sorry, I haven't received any information but let me check and I'll get back to you." Another 30 minutes later we are finally able to get off the plane. 0 min Layover. Thankfully they held the connecting flight leaving for charlotte so I wasn't stuck in Denver."
Cons: "The wait for check in was long and only 2 ticket agents helped a Kiosk would be a great addition"
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to no crew? Customer service people seemed dumb and poorly trained. Supervisor still below what you would find at a normal company."
Pros: "N/A for food or entertainment"
Cons: "Spend the extra money & book with another airline! Staff was rude & contradictory on policies. Was charge for checkin baggage for a skateboard!?! Ridiculous. There was no sleeping in these uncomfortable seats. Flight late. And was an hour wait for luggage."
Pros: "Nonstop service is nice, and the trip was as pleasant as possible since it wasn't a full flight and we could spread out."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour due to late incoming plane. You have to pay for a carry-on, and it's cheaper to check a bag. Both cost quite a bit, even if reserved early. You have to pay to choose your seat. Since I was traveling alone, I didn't pick a seat. I was assigned to a full row when there were other entire empty rows around me. I moved once everyone was seated."
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "Longest security line I have ever seen and I travel in a lot of countries all over the world that have outrageous security lines. Had an hour and a half to get through security and still missed the flight. Nothing could be done because the next flight was in 3 days."
Cons: "there was a charge for carry on that was not disclosed when i bought the ticket. further, i was unable to get the ticket from home so had to go through the extra time to go to the ticket counter."
Cons: "Had to pay for snacks so I did not get any."
Pros: "I hate the nickel and diming of frontier airlines."
Cons: "The plan is extremly small. No wifi or entertainment"
