Cons: "Frontier airline Cancun to Phila Boarded plane early just to wait over 1 hour on tarmac Turn off ac multiple times while waiting on a hot Mexico summer day Incredibly uncomfortable seats that don't recline No complimentary drinks for a 4 hour ride Won't let you sit in emergency row even though no one else is without paying Incompetent staff that allows long lines at back of plane, disregarding federal aviation laws Insufficient head room on window seats"
Pros: "Good captain. Quick flight."
Cons: "Cold with no blanket provided. No movie."
Cons: "No internet connectivity. This is an ABSOLUTE deal breaker for me. I MUST have this to be able to work."
Pros: "Times offered"
Cons: "Small seats, no tvs anywhere on the plane and everything costs you. A soda was even $2, hidden fees everywhere, of course with annoying baggage fees and choosing your seat assignments! Will avoid flying to another country on Frontier again. Long flight without any sort of entertainment offered especially for the expense and hassle of baggage fees etc. One flight attendant was rude and snotty."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and well managed, the flight was flawless and The Pilot told us the CoPilot, Bonnie was going to get us in early, we were 40 minutes early, and that included a little maneuvering around some storm clouds. Didn't try the food and missed the entertainment."
Cons: "It took 40 minutes for our baggage to arrive at the carousel."
Cons: "When I received my checked suitcase, it was completely damaged beyond repair. I had to cut it open. The zippers wouldn't work. And the sides were crushed in. I have to dispose of the suitcase. It was in great condition prior to this trip."
Pros: "On time. Good price. Great crew!"
Pros: "on time, pleasant crew, no complaints and the price was great"
Pros: "On time and smooth ."
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Staff tried to make me pay for two carry-on's for one bag and one purse--totaling to $90. You have to pay for soft drinks. Generally bad experience and a rip off."
Cons: "The flight landed early but then I had to wait 40 minutes for my bag. Then another 40 minutes for a shuttle to take me 100 feet to another part of the airport. It was ridiculous. Very dissatisfied!"
Cons: "the charge for luggage too expensive, I'll never use this airline again."
Pros: "Both flights (to and from) were on-time. The crew was very capable especially the crew on the initial flight as they were confronted with two heavy drinkers one of whom got sick. Their handling of these two was very professional, firm and effective."
Cons: "The increase of $10.00 (from $25.00 to $35.00) for my checked-in bag from my initial flight one week ago to my returning flight. There was no prior information of this increase."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice. We were on time."
Cons: "We wish we would've known about them charging for carry on bags ahead of time. We would've consolidated. Instead, we were surprised at the gate when we were informed that EACH carry on would be $40 EACH way! That added an additional $160 to our trip and was more expensive than our checked bags ($30). Then upon boarding, we were seated in a row without a window, and the tray tables are TINY. They charge extra for EVERYTHING, even water. After flying Southwest exclusively, all of this came as a surprise to us. We also have TSA Pre-Check, but the woman that checked us in said "she didn't have time to look it up", she seemed clueless."
Pros: "On time service."
Pros: "Cheaper fare and on time."
Cons: "$30.00 for luggage-check. No reclining seats No entertainment No food."
Pros: "Service was good on a clean plane. Once airborne, it was a pleasant ride."
Cons: "Aircraft was late inbound and 50 minutes late to depart. Baggage was not delivered to any passengers until a full hour after arrival."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "The nickel and diming. Good lord."
Cons: "Bagage policy is BS. Unless you fly with just the shirt on your back, they are going to charge you more that ticket price, and tell you luggage wont fit to get you to unnecessarily check it."
Pros: "I did not like anything"
Cons: "Passengers were kept on the plane for 3hours before the captain made a decision to let the passengers off. the flight attendants were rude and lacked compassion for the passengers discomfort. Passengers were not offered any complimentary beverages or snacks to compensate for the inconvenience. Limited clarity was given concerning steps needed to board the next flight. The seats are hard, uncomfortable and do not recline. This is not my first negative experience with frontier but it will be the last."
Pros: "Even the lower cost seats were comfortable. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Took off late both coming and going. They did make up time. Glad I was not connecting flight as it would have been stressful"
Cons: "Beware of the $75 charge for bags over 50 lbs. We were not aware of this policy until checking the bags in at the counter. Would have been better to take two small bags rather than one big one. Because of this we will look for other airlines when booking in the future."
Pros: "All of the flight attendants were fabulous. They were very kind and happy and helpful."
Cons: "Because the baggage was unloaded so slowly we almost missed our connection. The only reason we didn't was the next pilot had to land at another airport and then we waited for 2 extra hours. When we did arrive in Salt Lake we had to wait another 45 minutes to get our baggage so that we could go home."
Pros: "I liked the cheap ticket price."
Cons: "I felt a bit nickle and dimed with having to purchase water on the flight and being charge for bags, even "carry ons". I also couldn't believe that the seats didn't recline AT ALL?!"
Cons: "All flights were delayed, my luggage was lost, the only airline where soda cost money."
Pros: "Boarding was timely and efficient. The Crew was friendly."
Cons: "You pay for f*cking water! WTF! Seats don't recline seats are uncomfortable No Direct TV anymore No in flight magazine pay for 1st piece of checked luggage pay for carry on you pay for seat selection, I like window seats $$$ Frontier USED to be my favorite airline. Back to United and Alaska I guess Overall, just a terrible experience. If I had the time I would picket their check in area warning passengers about their upcoming nightmare."
Cons: "The seats are so crammed together, we felt like cattle more than humans. On both flights I lost feeling in my feet 3 hours into the flight. There is zero leg room and to be honest, the lack of leg room feels like a safety hazard. Not sure how Frontier can get away with this, because if there was a disaster and you needed to exit the plane quickly I'm not sure it would get done. It's disappointing how much an airline will nickel and dime its customers to death for things like checked baggage, choosing seats (so I could actually sit next to my wife) and even carry-ons. I think we've determined we'll never fly Frontier again, nor will we advocate for them in the future."
Cons: "People stole my wallet on the airplane and you guys did nothing."
Cons: "Huge delay!!!"
Pros: "Plane was fairly new"
Cons: "Dirty finger prints on window"

Cons: "Everything was bad!!"
Cons: "Second of two flights that were late Baggage pick up took twenty minutes..."
Pros: "It was ontime and uneventful. OTOH it was Spirit."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Cons: "So just remember that while the ticket itself might not be that expensive, you'll be charged for everything other than your personal bag, which might make up for the difference in ticket cost. Both of my flights were also delayed by about a half hour, which didn't make that much difference to my trip, but could be problematic if you have a tight layover."
Cons: "Cleanliness of plane was dissastisfactory."
Cons: "Terrible costumer service"
Cons: "Never again with spirit."
Pros: "Got a free upgrade to first seat. Super comfy!"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient."
Cons: "The food selections for purchase were poor."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "Too many add on fees, to liitle seat space"
Pros: "Initially I liked the lower fares"
Cons: "The bag policy was confusing. And expensive. A bag is a bag. Why should the same size bag cost more if it is checked in at a different place? Absolutely terribly crowded in the plane itself. Could hardly breathe. The bathroom reaked of old urine."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Paying my small luggage for 45 dollars"
Pros: "I got put into row 3 by the gate attendant! Nice wide seat, plenty of legroom. What's not to like?"

Cons: "Horrible servie. Just taking money for no show. Terrible system."
Pros: "overall value"
Cons: "need more legroom, tray table was minimal"
Cons: "Very cramped. No reclining. This is the city bus of airlines."
Pros: "Good rate"
Cons: "Like all"
Cons: "If you're eager for an entirely dehumanizing, infuriating travel experience, try Spirit!"
