Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I dont know WHY Delta changed my flight with ALIITALIA, but, DON'T DO IT DELTA. The check in process took an hour, not talking about the line, the ACTUAL checkin at the counter. I couldn't complete my web checkin at the AliItalia web site. Landed in JFK, still sucks as an airport, nobody helps, nobody explains anything, very poor signs and instructions, Global Entry kiosk are hard to spot. My connection ticket didn't have the TSA/PRECHECK legend, went to AliItalia counter, the lady at AliItalia barely said anything when I asked for help with that, her immediate answer was to disengage and sent me to another terminal "to talk to Delta". She didn't explain or didn't want to give an explanation until I started to act as an already 9hr30min flight frustrated customer in a very old, very poor plane with poor food service. Again, I bought an over $1,000 ticket with DELTA, NOT ALIITALIA, if Delta send people with their "partners" at least make sure that they are taken care of properly."
Pros: "I needed extra space because of my pregnancy, but didn't realize I couldn't upgrade my seat online or at check in. I was advised to tell the Boarding attendants I needed extra space and they promptly changed my seat and let me preboard. I'm so grateful and I had a wonderful flight back home. I was also very sick, so it was a relief knowing I could rest comfortably before arriving home to my children."
Cons: "We had problem with the airplane brake but the crew made the transition to the other plane so smooth. Amazing job to this delta crew."

Pros: "we could not get a seat until we arrived at the airport."
Pros: "We got earlier than expected to our destination"

Cons: "Departing on time"
Pros: "Charging at every seat is great."

Pros: "Friendly fast service to Albany"

So spent flight in last seat in back next to bathroom, while 2 comfort + seats were empty. Did not feel like a valued customer."
Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."

Pros: "Great entertainment offering plus liked that I was able to charge my phone at the same time."
Cons: "Nothing to add"
Pros: "Left on time all went well in Atlanta"
Cons: "Impossible to figure out what to do in Toronto at Canadian Customs. You move from secure to unsecure then back to secure. It’s a mess and nobody tells you what to do or where to go. Picture process took 4 times. Nobody tells you that you have to transfer your own bags from Delta to West Jet. I even asked in a Toronto and they said no and nobody in Atlanta told me to collect my bags. So bags never made it until the next AM. The West Jet rep was very good and located the bags and they were delivered as promised. You should provide 3 page detailed instructions on how to handle Toronto. I am a seasoned traveler by the way. I’ve never seen anything worse. I could go on and on."
Pros: "And arrived early, too.☺"
Cons: "The plane was dirty. The grounds staff was complaining as we got on about having to work late."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. They were attentive and very professional"
Cons: "I upgraded my seat and paid extra for one with more room. And I wasn’t impressed with my upgrade, doesn’t feel like more leg than regular seats. Comfort was below average. The crew"
Pros: "Quick boarding, clean plane, good entertainment system."
Cons: "Used a neck/back pillow and jacket against hull to try and keep my shoulder and arm from freezing solid. I usually sit by the window on a couple dozen flights per year, and it has never been this cold on my arm. I wonder if a heating pad would work on their outlet?"
Pros: "The plane went where it was supposed to go."
Pros: "No food, no entertainment but the crew were nice and the process was painless. Recommended"
Pros: "The flight was on time and very smooth flight .. felt like you was on a private jet"
Cons: "Smaller seats for bigger guys .. not fat but bigger person.. the crew was rough around there corners .. but in all very nice people.. they have to deal with jerks who think they are king or queen and don’t have to obey any rules .."

Cons: "Nothing negative to say!"
Pros: "Flight crew were friendly and engaging."
Cons: "Delta customer service- terrible when I called about reservation. Agent upon arrival at airport clearly not happy about 5am shift."
Pros: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."

Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."
Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "Boarding class and queuing for boarding is always a clusterf***. People will crowd the gate and board with the wrong class and that creates anxiety and leads to edginess. If a system could be worked out and enforced that would help."
Pros: "The only thing I liked was that I was one fight closer to home. This flight was awful."
Cons: "The aft lavatory had a broken seat lid so they took the entire lavatory out of commission for our flight, and our flight knowingly experienced ground delays so one lavatory for 100 people for several hours is UNPLEASANT. One crewmember was in a foul mood, and due to the lavatory issue, refused to let anyone use the forward lavatory while she was doing drink service, even during an emergency."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."
Cons: "Did not allow use of exit rows to improve social distancing (those seats “not in my class of service“). Flight was crowded."
Pros: "Everything was great. Easy boarding great comfortable seating and friendly efficient stewardship"
Pros: "Everything was on time!"
Pros: "I got the vegetarian meal I asked for."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, because of the boarding process with immigration"

Pros: "Staff extremely friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Old plane with no individual tv screens!!! Didn't know these planes still existed!"
Pros: "Extra blanket and pillow. Empty seat to sleep in. Fairly clean interior for the most part."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."
Pros: "Flights lately have been a huge disappointment but American Airlines was great! Crew was so pleasant and helpful,food was good and the "entertainment" was too! I'll definitely fly with them again!"
Pros: "All good! Nice staff. Easy travel."
Pros: "The crew was very efficient and friendly while handling everyone. Flight was smooth, food was good. I went to the wrong terminal and did not know that the advertised finair flight was actually American Airlines, the AA ticket counter attendant went all out to make sure I made it to the gate. All this with less than an hour before departure."
Cons: "I went to the wrong terminal, the email ticket had finair in large print and in smaller print indicated American. Luckily I was able to literally run and make my flight. Would be better to more clearly indicate actual airline."
Cons: "Small seats, no wifi, no chargers, terrible entertainment."
Pros: "Once we got on the plane, everything was pretty standard"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "The staff were fine and boarding went relatively smoothly."
Cons: "The plane was dated and small. There were no individual screens for entertainment. I've flown internationally with American before and felt this specific experience was worse."
Pros: "Staff on the plane were nice."
Cons: "5 hour delay, fear of cancellation ruining a trip planned for years, not feeling we were told what was happening, series of delays extending decision time, unappetizing sandwiches during delay."
Pros: "An agent found me a window seat for the Chicago-Barcelona leg of the trip with extra leg room. That was amazing. Also, the lost luggage assistant for American Airlines was super helpful and nice. Also, the 787 (I think that was the Chicago-Barcelona craft) was a very enjoyable airplane. It was super smooth. It had high tech windows that adjusted the amount or type of light that could filter through the windows depending on the settings."
Cons: "When I arrived in Barcelona my Bag went missing. It showed up an two hours after my flight landed."
Pros: "Nice head rest (although it did not stay bent at angle, so could actually rest against it)."
Cons: "Think it is ridiculous that I had to pay so much to select a seat ahead of time, and it was just a regular seat. I can understand for extra legroom or exit row, but for a regular seat, that is ridiculous. Then there was a fee to change priority boarding, so I could ensure I was able to have my carry-on with me, instead of risk having it go underneath."
Pros: "Free alcohol and good passenger friends and friendly service."
Cons: "No outlets for phones"
Cons: "Could not read paper when passenger in front reclined seat. No space between rows."
Pros: "Crew was excellent but it was literally the most uncomfortable plane ride I have ever been. There was even an empty seat in the middle and I couldn't sleep at all. The seats were super shOrr and the headrests sucked"
Cons: "My flight was actually processed under American Airlines. Oddly, the confirmation email stated it was Finnair."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Entertainment system outdated"
Cons: "Plane was too old, flight attendants were rude"
Pros: "The departure time. This left enough time to get to the airport and go through security without rushing!"
Cons: "Sitting in the middle Paying for luggage ( I wish Southwest flew out of ORD)"
Cons: "Due to two flight delays, I traveled an additional 24 hours, on top of my 20 hour original flight. Albuquerque Airline staff were rude, dismissive, incompetent, and each individual I spoke with gave me wildly differing information. The two delays (leading to approximately 48 hours of travel) would have been stressful enough, but the callous, ignorant and unprofessional attitudes of American Airlines staff (and staff in general at Chicago O'Hare Airport) really disappointed me. This was even more striking compared with the professional service I received from British Airways (from whom I purchased the tickets). I was ashamed that my country could lag so far behind in terms of basic customer service and problem solving."
Cons: "Requested for wheelchair assistance but none provided?!!"
Pros: "Timing and transit time was excellent"
Cons: "Food was horribe and no dedicated tv per seat"
Cons: "We were delayed for 6 hours due to a maintenance issue. Horrible customer service"
Cons: "Always a problem with these guys"
Pros: "Couldn't of been more impressed especially after being hung out by Southwest!!!"
Cons: "We have flown to Europe recently on SAS and that airline was so much more comfortable than airberlin. Things we missed: personal TVs on the seats, good leg room (airberlin was quite cramped), and small attentions like a disposable towelette. I got no sleep on airberlin."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Experienced 4 hour delay with mechanical and weather problems. But glad they put safety first"
Pros: "They put safety first"
Cons: "Frustrating 4 hour delay"
Pros: "Vegetarian pesto pasta was good, but all other food was not good and way too sweet and sugary."
Cons: "Flight was delayed several hours, entertainment system did not have many choices and stopped working early in the flight."
Cons: "I am very disappointed in my flight. I am 6'7 and paid for an exit row seat. When I got to the airport they gave me a different seat with no leg room. They told me they changed planes and there was nothing they could do to help me. I tried again at the gate and again nothing. Will never fly again."
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude, they had no dinner, no healthy breakfast options, they rationed the beverages and after being without enough water for 12 hours, they would give you dirty looks when you asked for a second serving of plain water."
Pros: "Room on flight in coach was sufficient and im 6 ft 2"
Pros: "My original flight was canceled and booking agent was able to get me on the earlier flight."
Cons: "Stewardesses did not pick up trash near the end of the flight. I had to hold it until we landed."
Pros: "The entertainment was pretty good . There was a good variety of movies and music"
Cons: "the cabin was extremely small, absolutely no leg dpace unless you were in first class, specially if you are a taller person."
Pros: "Overall pleasant experience."
Cons: "I was not aware that the FinnAir flight was being handled by American. I missed it when reading my itinerary and had a brief panic when I showed up to the international terminal and my flight was not even listed on the board. Perhaps it could be written a little larger? Thanks."
Pros: "Good value"
Cons: "Poor food quality"
Cons: "That small space!! This is a long flight and you have no room to move around at all!!!!!"
Pros: "Appreciated that the cre didn't wake me to give me my landing card. They did make sure I got one though."
Cons: "I didn't get vegetarian food that I ordered over the phone and I did made sure that it said vegetarian Jain meal on the ticket that I printed. Very disappointed because no point ordering then. I paid $1234 for the trip. And I am traveling because of funeral."
Cons: "Seats too tight. No room"
Pros: "Food, entertainment and free checked bag. Can ask for more!"
Pros: "In flight service."
Cons: "The first check in kiosk associate was turning us away because we reached 30 minutes prior to scheduled departure. However, by then they knew that they were going to be at least 1 hour 30 minute late. Then when kayak emailed us about the delay, the check in people let us in. Ultimately the flight was three hours late."
Pros: "Food, blanket & pillow,"
Cons: "Most of the video screens did not work. Long flight with no entertainment!"
Pros: "Seat accommodations were great Gate assignments at airport should be confirmed before the plane arrived"
Cons: "I'm upset with kayak for sending a survey before I was off the plane!"
Cons: "Pop and pretzels"
Pros: "Punta Gorda was not over-busy. So the hassle level of the pre--flight experience was way down from the norm nowadays. The flight was on time, and only mostly full, not crowded."
Cons: "Not even water free infliight is a tad chintzy. Allegiant is not responsible for this, but the seat belt sign was on most of the time. I counld wish for better weather enroute. On arrival at ALB there was not video display announcing the belt numbers fror different arriving flights. One had to just drift from belt to belt"
Cons: "Alligient air is an excellent economy airline that flies non-stop to smaller cities."
Pros: "Not much after sitting in the airport for two extra hours on both flights"

Pros: "Great crew. Good on-time flight (early, actually). Smooth boarding."
Cons: "Standard no-frills gripes. Seat is tolerable but basic, no recline. No power, zero inflight entertainment, etc etc. They won't even give you a sip of water for free, which is just absurd in my opinion. They did give me a free cup of ice... so I guess ice + time = free water..."
Pros: "When you land at Concord you are right near the parking lot!!!"
Pros: "Crew was really nice! Flight was quick and easy"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "They gave us a soda in the waiting area, because we were so delayed. Flight attendants were friendly."

Cons: "flight delayed 3 times didn’t leave until 11pm 3 hours late last delay because pilot was late. didn’t get home until 3am."
Cons: "Paying extra for EVERYTHING"
Cons: "5 delays between for a 4:27PM flight that eventually took off at 3:15am. My biggest issue is the unrealistic delay that could have left us in the airport for 11+ hours. Very thankful that they did allow me to change departure locations to another airport at no charge. That flight went well, even arrived early."
Pros: "Non-stop flight at a reasonable price"
Cons: "Food choices are very limited"
Cons: "Baggage claim very slow"
Pros: "Great price, flight on time , great trip would use again"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable- they do not recline and the springs in the seat back pole into your back"
Cons: "I attempted to check in online and was unable to do so. Bad app."
Pros: "From entering the airport, gate, and plane- nothing is more pleasant and efficient than Allegiant flights. I was able to attend my grandsons bday and back by start of the next week- round trip at REASONBLE prices! Thank you."
Cons: "I am ok with it but the walk way was so filthy on my return trip. I know plane was late and we boarded late... but a really quick vacuum would have taken only a few minutes. I realize it was messy from cl"
Pros: "Nonstop on time and as expected"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was fast but I was coming from Vegas so it’s not that far."
Cons: "They charged me $50 for a carry on even after I told them repeatedly that I tried to change it on my ticket days before I was leaving. It would not let me change it or even check in on the mobile app. It was very hot and we had to wait for awhile before any air conditioning started. No entertainment or complimentary drinks."
Cons: "Sent email out asking for volunteers to reschedule her flight. Got on the plane our seats were not the same as selected. And we paid more to select our seats. Friend of ours seat was switched also and instead of him sitting next to his wife he sat next to a person who did not have an assigned seat he was extremely large and he was hanging off The seat into the aisle I noticed an empty seat and had to ask the stewardess if he could switch seats instead of the stewardess offering on her own. The flight out was delayed approximately one hour various mechanics coming on and off plane until finally we were able to leave."
Pros: "Love this flight from Belleville to Punta Gorda. On time and great crew."
Pros: "Flight went smooth"
Cons: "I checked into my flight with luggage to check in. The lady behind the counter said I could not check my luggage that the only way for it to get on the plane was to take it through the TSA checkpoint. They confiscated everything in my bag that was over 3oz which was quite a bit of stuff hence the reason why I was trying to check it in. I will not be flying Allegiant air again."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for hours then canceled"
Pros: "I had 44 min they wouldn't give me my boarding pass then the flight was delayed to 5:30 and they still wouldn't allow me up."
Pros: "The original price points for the direct flights are wonderful. You can actually book the week of a trip and save hundreds because those prices will probably still be the best. That is, until you learn about all of their extra fees."
Cons: "Wow, they sure do add extra fees for everything. Watch out. In the end, I bet it was cheaper to book with a major airline like American. They charge extra for each bag, including your carry- on, when you pick your seat you are charged depending on where it is in the aircraft, if you want a drink or food on the plane you will have to pay, if you do not print your ticket prior to arriving to the aiport they will charge you, etc."
Pros: "No frills inexprnsive"
Cons: "No services"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time. Boarding was OK."
Cons: "Not even water provided on flight. I miss amenities."
Pros: "Very nice flight attendants."
Cons: "45 minute delay my 1st flight and a 2 hour delay on the 2nd. It's become so late so consistently that I don't even bother to arrive early anymore."
Pros: "Nothing. We were scheduled to fly back to Vegas at 7:07 then delayed to 8:30 then 10 pm then 11:25 pm now 1:15 am. This is unbelievable, unacceptable and ridiculous! And I have to work the next day. This is unacceptable! I just received another update that now we're leaving at 1:45 am . Please do not, again do not use Allegheny EVER again!!"
Cons: "So many delays. This airline is unreliable, unprofessional! Ridiculous! Please read my comments above. Do not use Allegiant!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding outside in the pouring rain!!!"
Pros: "Overall good experience"
Pros: "We were supposed to have boarded for 5:00, flight was at 6pm. They were missing 1 crew member and could board the plane. She showed up, then they made a announcement that the Oakland flight will be delayed till 8:10 takeoff. I was able to get on a flight to Stockton Airport without problem. They wouldnt tell me what was wrong, and i didnt want to chance that it was the last dlight to Oakland and went with Stockton. The flight was good, you have to pay for your water."

Pros: "Replace 1 star ratings with na since offered."
Cons: "When we booked our flight you seperated us on the plane seating Why? That really sucked. We then found out you charge extra to sit together for each of us. We would not recommend first time travelers to your airline for that reason"
Pros: "It was cheap and was no different than other flights I have taken."
Cons: "Their station at the airport didn't open until about an hour before my flight."
Pros: "Not much"

Cons: "The crew no food no pillow no blanket"
Cons: "See above comments."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great!"
Pros: "The comfy seats"

Cons: "On the return home, I was seated in the last row right next to the lavatory. I was bumped into at least 40 times by other passengers and flight attendants."
Pros: "not a damn thing"
Cons: "Weather delays are a typical part of travel. What's not typical are 5+ hour delays and sitting on the tarmac and watching your connection take off without you. First Class seats morphed into Economy center seats the next day, with nary a hotel room in sight. Thanks for nothing."
Cons: "The flight was very hot and uncomfortable!"
Cons: "This flight never happened it continued to get canceled and canceled!!"
Cons: "Everything! Even worse than my previous flight. Delays were inexcusable, staff ridiculously unfriendly and just bad attitudes all round. Very unpleasant experience, won't be using this airline ever again."

Pros: "Pre-check with United"
Cons: "Did not get connecting flights boarding pass from the beginning. Short connection time - was very stressful"
Cons: "Couldn't reserve/request a seat. Assigned to me About 1.5 hours prior to boarding. Had to wait Around the gate. Should have told me I would not have any choice. Could have walked around. Got a middle seat. It was a long flight."
Pros: "The flight attendant was great! Pleasant, polite and professional!"
Cons: "The flight from ORD to ABE was on a plane with expired maintenance logs or inspections? We were delayed 2 hours in arriving for what seemed like a pilots lax in paperwork. But what does a customer expect from an airline who knows they that customer by the balls?"
Pros: "We were tossed into the last row; I had no leg room and was constantly being bumped by people using the rest rooms. As a result it was a sleepless flight."
Pros: "Great boarding at ORD."

Pros: "Movie selection and delivery/access was very good"
Cons: "Seat legroom is insufficient. There was a water leak in the ceiling that dripped cold Wster on me for a portion of the trip."

Pros: "Everything else was fine"
Cons: "For such a long flight and quite expensive some food should be provided. I have never flown before like that (over hundreds of overseas flights) and had NO FOOD given at all."
Pros: "the flight attendant crew was super nice throughout the entire flight."
Cons: "the tvs weren't working for the all the seats, and the food was not very tasty."
Pros: "Flight itself was good. Nice flight attendants. Funny pilot."
Cons: "The lady at desk to board the flight made me check my carry on. I had assumed it was because the plane was full, but when I got on the plane there were more than adequate spots to stow more bags. There was a compartment across from my seat that remained open the entire flight. While I completely understand the need to check extra luggage when the plane is full, I was very upset when I saw it was not. I intentionally fly with a carry on for the convenience, and to be inconvenienced for absolutely no reason made me not want to fly with this company again for fear it could happen again in the future."
Pros: "The flight crew was very helpful and organised the connection between two flights very well under pressing circumstances when there was only 15 min between the flights and the boarding gates being in opposite ends of a big Munic airport"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 h, so we had to run through Munic airport for connected flight. Good sport, but rather tiresome."
Cons: "8 channels of looped shows and movies. Too long a flight for that...and then have to use my device to watch on the free part of the wifi.so no battery left. For this price? And I booked through Lufthansa but flew United. Bad form."
Cons: "The plane was tiny and the seats were tiny. Could not carry on a bag and it took a long time to get the bag back from having been gate checked."

Pros: "friendly attitude"
Cons: "$85 for two checked bags, many little issues along the way but got there safely"
Pros: "Fare, boarding, seat selection, ease of purchase."
Cons: "On my first leg of my round trip flight free refreshments were offered. On my return flight they were not and was told everything beside water only was available for purchase. It also seemed a bit unsafe for during the course of the short 2:15 hr flight between Chicago and Austin for the Pilots to leave the cockpit with the only things standing between someone rushing the cockpit when the door is opened are a drink cart and an older female flight attendant."
Pros: "Bag charged"
Pros: "Steamboat Springs, CO There were many CUBS fans on this flight! Good to leave rainy Chicago & arrive in dry Denver! Even though the plane was late, I was still able to catch my Alpine Taxi to Steamboat!"
Cons: "There should be a way to know when the bathroom is available!"
Cons: "The fact that Reclining seats are a upgrade is unexceptable . The price online to check in your bags change during a check in. I was charged more than what your website state. The check-in reservation is was rude and unwilling to correct a computer glitch . She stated that your software had no ability to override a mistake."
Pros: "Not much. Very amateur service"
Cons: "To pay $40 for a carry on bag is being a thief. The seat in the plane do not recline... comfort is a thing of the past!"
Cons: "Worst flight of my entire life."
Pros: "absolutely nothing."
Cons: "cheap seats, dirty plane, garbage in the front pockets. Nickle and dime you to death on everything!"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable enough. The departure was 40 min late, but the plane eventually landed according to the original schedule, which was nice. The price was very good, even with adding 40$ for too big carry-on."
Cons: "The attendants were talking way too much, making different announcements and explanations almost non-stop. They also organized some kind of reshuffling of people inside the plane due to the need to ... rebalance the aircraft. Never saw it at any other airline."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "They nickel and dime you for every little thing! You want to bring any luggage? Too bad it costs $35 or $60 per bag. You want to pick your seat? Too bad it's $11+. You want any food or drink on the plane? Too bad it's expensive."
Cons: "Email notification of a 3 hour flight delay 2 hours before flight but I was already on my way to the airport. Then the flight gets cancelled but no email notification was sent and the screen wasn't updated at the gate (the whole time I was there). If I hadn't come back to the gate during the long delay and asked a fellow passenger why they were in line, I wouldn't have known it was cancelled for a long time. The employees at the gate were helpful in refunding our tickets, etc. but overall, not happy with my experience with Frontier Airlines."
Cons: "Behind, plane troubles, and very uncomfortable seats. Not worth the money"
Cons: "there were too many delays and the situation was handled poorly. I do not plan to fly Frontier again in the future."
Cons: "The crew made us move from the seats I booked without a good explanation"
Cons: "Worst seats in any plane I have EVER been on (and I travel ALL the time). Those steel seats with 0 cushion have resulted in me having the worst back pain and being on bed rest for the past 3 days on severe pain medication with no signs of improvement. I will never fly Frontier again."
Pros: "The tate"
Cons: "Paying for bags"
Cons: "Lots of screaming children, but I had to fly to Orlando."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "All the hidden costs"
Pros: "I will never fly Frontier again. Poor customer service. Poor baggage handling. Poor timeliness of flight and baggage delivery. Poor communication of flight delays and baggage mix-ups. Understaffed. Undertrained. Poor seats, particularly considering I paid for the best. Inadequate compensation for 8+ hour delay and missing baggage for 3 days. After all the nickel and diming for seats, baggage (checked AND carry on) it would have cost me less to fly my preferred carrier and avoided every hassle, not to mention the inadequate compensation (again). Horrible, horrible experience."

Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Very very terrible seats. Always late"
Pros: "We had a flight to Philadelphia we boarded on time and landed early! It was great!"
Pros: "The boarding process was really good and the crew was really helpful with helping me with my luggage and finding the seat"
Cons: "The comfort of the plane I couldn't recline my seat the book light didn't work"
Pros: "Pay extra for another airlines. Frontier is uncomfortable and you have to pay for everything after the ticket. You only end up saving minimal amounts."
Pros: "Frontier airines was great. We got a ridiculously cheap flight so to pay $30 for a carry on was no problem. We knew all the fees up front so we planned accordingly and packed light. Staff was friendly and organized. Flight got in early."
Cons: "The flight was fine.. We didn't know that we have to pay a luggage fee for a carry on for $45.. I was surprised when they told us to pay since carry on so far in other flights were free.. The seats weren't comfortable since it doesn't recline. This plane really is only good for probably a one hour flight not 4 hours because you can't even relaxed and reclined your seat.. All food you have to pay including water.. I will never fly frontier ever again..."
Pros: "Original ticket price was cheaper than any other, and flight time options were great for an early flight out or late flight in, etc."
Cons: "Cheap and cheap. O'hare has an awful set-up for bag check and security for frontier/spirit/virgin/other cheap airlines together. You wait to print, then wait to check, then wait to drop your own bags (with zero instruction or customer service or signage), then wait for security. They hate for EVERYTHING: just to check in for your flight and pick a seat. $11-17-37 to sit together. Each. And then for bags. $35 to check and $60 to carry on (makes no sense) even when checking in online early. And even more cost to have both checked and carry on. And seats don't recline, that costs more. And have a 4inch by 5 inch-ish tray table. And EVERYTHING costs money onboard from WATER to Pepsi to snacks. It cost an extra $92 each way for two of us to check in and check one small bag. My back hurts and I will ALWAYS pay a bit more for another airline."
Cons: "1) Although flights are fairly low fare, they get you with baggage. Had to pay to check OR to carry-on. 2) Flew out of Chicago O'Hare - a major hub - and Frontier, Spirit, Virgin America, & Alaskan all shared a SINGLE security check. Yes ladies and gentleman, one security scanner. I have never in my life (usually fly American, United, or Southwest) waited more than 30 minutes to get through security. This time was well over an hour, I almost missed my flight. 3) On-board staff was friendly (all but one woman), but there were no complimentary beverages or snacks. I did pay for some & they were not too pricey, but having to whip out my credit card yet again made my whole travel experience feel far from effortless."
Pros: "Really good experience"
Pros: "The price for the trip was great. I thought the boarding was efficient and the flight crew pleasant. Check in at the airport was very easy although the automatic machines were non functing."
Cons: "Long pre security screening lines. The seating is rather cramped."
Pros: "I got where I wanted to go for a reasonable price."
Cons: "I did not calculate for the extra fee for a carry-on. I'm always disappointed when I don't get a complementary beverage and snack. Sad but worth the savings."
Pros: "Flights were cheap."
Cons: "You end up paying an additional $30-35 to check a bag or carry on-board, you also end up paying $15-20 to reserve a seat. In addition, they won't accept your checked-in baggage if you're not at the airport 45 min before boarding to drop it off. They made me re-book my flight out of Chicago for the next day and charged me $99. I was only 5 min late to drop my bag off, and because of bad traffic. The airline has no empathy, they seem to be only concerned with charging you at every opportunity they get. I will never fly frontier again."
Cons: "inflight everything requires payment."
Cons: "45 dollars for each carry on . Not pleased to pay 90 extra dollars. Never flying Frontier again"
Cons: "While booking I was unaware frontier airlines charged for carry on luggage and didn't participate in TSA pre check. In addition to paying $45 more for the ticket than advertised and having to use normal security, the plane was so cramped the guy behind me hit me in the head. Finally there was a persistent foul smell in the plane. It was a rough 4hrs 30 min. I would recommend spending more and flying southwest or United."
Cons: "The price of the trip did not include a seat, nor baggage, this was unclear and I felt misled. The seating is extremely uncomfortable. Checking in online was terrible, the website was hard to navigate, the prices were inconsistent (I was checking on my phone and computer at the same time and getting different rates for seats). I felt the communication was poor. I did not feel safe. I will not choose this Airline again."
Cons: "I was charged $45 for my carry on. My bag was within the specs. they had on their website. I will never fly with them again."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "(a) No wifi (b) Being nickled and dimed for too many things (c) really uncomfortable plane. Even the $30 premium seats are terrible and don't recline If I had known about carry on and seat assignment fees I would have just flown on a different airline because there would have been no difference in price."
Pros: "Boarding process was quick, flight was early, people were courteous and friendly."
Cons: "It would have been perfect if we could have had a free beverage."
Pros: "Inexpensive flight. Friendly but no nonsense crew."
Cons: "Why do they seat front rows first? You would think that would block people from getting in."
Pros: "While going over the safety information, our flight attendants snuck in a few jokes. That always helps to keep people's attention and sets the tone for the flight. The takeoff and landing were super smooth, and we were on time, which isn't expected on Frontier!"
Pros: "What more could you ask for we were on time. The pilot saved 20 minutes in the air. Staff was polite and attentive. The plane was just renovated."
Cons: "I don't understand why my TSA pre-approval is not included on a Frontier Flight. I have Global Entry verification, and am surprised this is not honored."
Pros: "Our Stewardess was fantastic! She is the only reason i was able to endure this fiasco....even though she had a sprained ankle she was wonderful....Jessica was The supervisor ispoke with her briefly and she gave a fair explanation...but kudos to the stewardess that evening they pulled us through. .."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 2hrs with a notification that we would be 16 minutes behind our regularly scheduled flight. ..this was such a inconvenience to me others.."
Pros: "I like the leg room that I had and the crew all were wonderful."
Cons: "I don't like how this company nickel and dimes you. You pay a low rate only to be slapped with a seating fee when you check in for your flight. Then ofcourse the ridiculous nature of charging for a carry on bag."
Cons: "Seats are one inch thick, and don't recline. 5" tray table is shorter than my cell phone. Pay separately for carry on, drinks, snacks, and pretty much everything except sitting on the airplane. No wifi. Never flying frontier again."
Pros: "Crew gave me a row of my own because the row I was in was crowded on flight from Chicago to Trenton"
Cons: "No free soda on flights. Trenton airport."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"
