Cons: "Baggage fees."

Cons: "no music. no wi-fi. nothing to enhance the experience. check out jet blue."

Cons: "I was seated at the emergency exit, seat 17a. Flight attended tells everyone that were responsible to open the emergency door and we must know english.

Pros: "Best flight attendants in a long time. Lots of fun!"
Cons: "seats seemed extremely narrow"

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and absolutely polite! The check in was flawless! The plane was well maintained and clean, bathrooms in board were spotless as well. For a 5 hour flight there was a three time beverage service, which was great! The pilot and crew were informative."
Cons: "The chairs on the plane were not able to lean back which was a disappointment for a 5 hour flight. Also i would have expected to have in-seat entertainment for a middle-term distance flight. I know they offered tablets but for a fee, which is unacceptable."

Pros: "Alaska has always treated us well. I would recommend them anytime."

Pros: "I think Alaska is trying hard to compete with the big boys, and they do a good job. Seats are comfortable and the entertainment device is really good."

Cons: "LAX security is awful. We never left the airport (arrived LAX from Sydney AU) yet were forced thru security again. Had to remove shoes, was scanned and "frisked" by TSA to get to Denver. To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney. Where's the uniformity or standards for TSA?? Why did I have to be subjected to this garbage on the way home?? This is why I despise flying. It makes no sense to me. This ruined what was a great vacation."

Bathrooms onboard were a pigstie."

After sizing my carry on and getting permission for my bag to go onboard I was stopped at the gate before boarding, the bag was re-sized and they made me check it in.

Cons: "NOTHING AA IS JUST AS BAD AS FIJI AIRWAYS"

Pros: "On time departite"

Pros: "Everything was fine"

Pros: "Nothing!!"

Cons: "No room in the seating, nor in the overhead."

Pros: "Staff was nice and chairs were comfortable"

Cons: "The turbulence"

Pros: "The food."

Pros: "Same,as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Total femal crew!!"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "We did not crash. I appreciated that. Also, we made slightly faster time than planned."
Cons: "I had no idea that a *carry on* costs $30. That's just obscene. My GF and I took a weekend trip to Utah and brought only our backpacks because we didn't want to spend the extra dough. Lame. At Frontier, you don't even get to choose your seats without paying extra money. If you want to guarantee that you can sit in the absolute worst seats on the plane that's gonna cost you an extra $5. Sure hope we get to sit together! Lame. The seats were one step above folding lawn chairs. Lame. When the flight crew refers to the 6 inch by 3 inch "table" as a "barbie tray" that makes it funny, but no less lame. How could we top all this lameness off with a lame sauce? How about the flight crew "requesting" your attention and forcing you to sit through a 5 minute *credit card offer*. I could not believe it when the credit card offer started. Afterwards, she walked through the aisles and asked every person who dared to gaze in her general direction whether they were interested in her offer. How many were? ZERO. Before this flight I truly had no opinion about which airline I should fly, but now I do have a preference... Literally anyone other than Frontier."

Pros: "New, very nice, very clean, very safe plane. I would fly this airline again."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Comfortable"

Cons: "Frontier is a truly terrible organization."

Pros: "The flight was fine. It arrived on time, and I don't mind the immobile seat backs and the lack of a talk tray table."
Cons: "I received an email on Tuesday night informing me that my Thursday am flight was cancelled, due to anticipated weather (no increment weather at the time), The email provided no instructions for rebooking except a phone number. I tried rebooking on the web site, but that didn't work. The web site did not know about the cancellation at all and wanted to charge me a large rebooking fee. Meanwhile I was on hold for two hours. Finally, I needed a midnight trip to the airport in order to rebook. At the airport, I witnessed ill-informed and stressed agents failing to cope with stressed stranded customers. One agent told a customer that she refused to help him any longer because he recorded her."

Pros: "The flight was on time and the plane was clean. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The airline did not provide seat assignments at booking or prior to the flight. To secure seats together with my 11 year old son, I was upcharged at the airport ($85 for tow flights). No amenities were provided. Apple juice cost $3. No in flight entertainment, not even a magazine. This flight cost as much as a major airline when I booked it--the only convenience was timing back to our original airport. Add the seat up charge and I probably paid more. This experience proved to me that it might be ok to pay a little extra for a major carrier, especially on long trips."

Pros: "From check in to landing every thing was very quick and efficient!"

Cons: "Lost bags"

Pros: "Getting off the plane was the best part"
Cons: "Babies crying kicking my seat screaming in my ear"

Pros: "Size of plane"
Cons: "Staff members not offering water (at least). Only items that cost"

Cons: "It hasn't left yet and you do not know that."

Cons: "Same screaming infants. They were able to sleep but allowed to roam aisles."

Cons: "Lost luggage and delayed takeoff"

Cons: "Communication at the gate was poor. As well as the communication on board the plane."

Cons: "The day after arriving at our destination, our return trip was canceled: "due to day-of-travel flight cancellation or traveler no-show." I can assure you, we did show; I had the pictures. They tried to put us on an earlier flight, which was not convenient, due to travel plans made 8 months prior, so the return flight was scheduled for the next day (again, inconvenient, due to loss of income). Frontier attempted to charge me for the extra day. After I complained multiple times, they finally waived the additional charge when I reminded them I was NOT the one who canceled the original flight. My daughter and I were provided $100 travel vouchers, each, for the "inconvenience." Frontier can keep their $200."

Cons: "Let people know about their carry on luggage charges!"

Cons: "Baggage for 2 pieces of luggage $75.00 then a gimmicky Visa card to earn miles not cost effective"

Cons: "more than 2 hrs late"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Horrible space No comp beverage No wifi No magazine Delayed"

Pros: "made it to DC"
Cons: "delayed 1.5 hours. little information. no apology. no explanation."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "That the captain finally showed up to fly the plane."
Cons: "That the flight was delayed 5+ times with several conflicting reasons given."

Cons: "Seat was awful even though I paid for an aisle."

Cons: "Frontier airlines as a whole. Nickel and dime you for everything. Kinda surprised the bathroom was free."

Cons: "3hour delay."

Cons: "Paying extra for EVERYTHING. Will never travel with Frontier again."

Cons: "Only food for purchase - did not buy any. No entertainment available, incl music. Seating crowded."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "They nickel and dime you to death. Leg room is horrible if your over 4 feet tall."

Pros: "I just plain like the Frontier method as it has been done for years. The pricing, seating, employees and most everything else just works."
Cons: "I've traveled with Frontier for years and on previous flights to DCA, I thought I should blame the baggage claim delay on the airport. Now I am told it is a Frontier responsibility and I am livid. It gets worse every trip. This time it took an hour to get our bags and it was clearly unnecessary. The first bags came out at about 30 minutes, but after that they dribbled out with no explanation whatsoever. Someone is a real laggard and they need to be fired! This experience was so bad that it takes precedence over our previous beefs. Boarding could be much better from back to front and the new seats are terrible, but like I said, if the baggage could be fixed, I would be willing to concede a few. At this point, I am ready to jump ship to Southwest."

Pros: "Early Arrival"
Cons: "Paying for a seat"

Pros: "except for the food and what entertainment it was over all good"
Cons: "could not pay cash"

Cons: "they cancelled the fligh on me - over booked"

Cons: "Your seats and absolutely terrible. What kind of an idiot designed them. Yes sure you added a few extra seats but the comfort level is horrible. I had so much back pain for sitting on those garden plastic chairs"

Cons: "Having to sit on the plane for four hours in the same position of the seat."

Cons: "They charged me 70 for bags.... Which is insane.... Without warning basically."
