Moved my seat to a middle chair without asking me

Moved my seat to a middle chair without asking me

👌

i wouldve liked to be offered earphones to enjoy the great selection of movies provided. i was also asked to be moved from my seat by the staff despite being assigned the seat on my ticket without any explanation. i am also active duty military (not in uniform), and expected to be put on priority seating (seated first) but that is not as bad as i'm not sure if that service is offered, but it was offered on my prior delta flight that day.

I never took this flight and was never able to cancel it in Kayak’s system! I will never book through Kayak again. The flight was probably fine. Next time I will only book with the airline directly. I would caution anyone else to do the same.

On time even early. Excellent flight.

Pros: "I got home on the day I planned."
Cons: "This is the second time we've flown from NYC to SC on Delta and it's the second time they messed around with the departure time. We actually got back to SC pretty much on time but the confusion is aggravating and stressful when you're ready to get where you are going. Both times we got to SC when scheduled and Delta appears to think that makes everything fine. Not quite..."
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: "Speedy flight"

Pros: "The flight is short"
Cons: "Delayed from 930pm to 6am. Didn't tell us till almost midnight. Because of scheduling issues not weather or anything. The check in people had no idea what I was talking about when I tried to check in for my 6am rescheduled flight."

Cons: "No food"
Pros: "Over all everything specially we got in earlier than expected"
Pros: "I was traveling for medical reasons and the Delta crew took great care of me, made sure I was at my connecting gate on time, and even put me in a better seat on the plane. Not sure if that was a coincidental upgrade, or intentional, but it was perfect."
Pros: "I lost the flight To hartford and I pay 4 the hotel"
Cons: "I lost the flight To hartford and I pay 4 the hotel"
Pros: "Flight crew was good, we arrived early on flight out and back! Feel like seats are tinier than ever, maybe it was just me. Food (water & pretzels) were OK, but nothing special (then again it was a short flight, so I didn't expect anything). Plane was small so we needed to gate check bags and the gate attendant came around and tagged everyone's bag for us, well before boarding which was hugely efficient - kudos to her on that!"
Cons: "Gate attendant's mic was broken (or she didn't know how to use) so she had to yell into the boarding area."
Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "That one flight attendant brushed me off with a wave of her hand... SUPER RUDE!"
Cons: "All was well"
Pros: "The USB connection at my seat worked; it often does not, so this was an improvement. The turkey sandwich was moist and delicious."
Cons: "Takeoff was delayed approx 4 hours which made me miss my connection and prolonged the whole travel day."

Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."
Pros: "The food has REALLY improved!! GREAT CREW!"
Pros: "No issue. Everything was good."
Cons: "Not much. Everything was good."
Pros: "Flight attendants were competent."
Cons: "Air conditioning was extremely noisy."
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."
Pros: "Smooth boarding, no delays, quiet easy flight, arrived on time and quick deplaning."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice and polite. They served drinks and snacks in a timely manner while on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."
Pros: "Just absolutely uneventful and quick."
Cons: "TSA"
Pros: "Awesome service in first."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Missed original connection, booked on a three hour later flight that was delayed another hour, then three hours. Finally switched to Alaska 2 hours prior to departure. Was assured our bags would be on Alaska flight. They weren't. One eventually showed up in Spokane at 2 a.m. on a Delta flight the other on a separate Alaska flight at 3 a.m."
Cons: "Free streaming movies on WiFi did not work (the system was broken on this aircraft according to the customer support). We had 3 people flying together but did not get the seats assigned in one place. Yes, we did not pay extra for confirmed seats but since we were buying 3 tickets I think 3 seats close to each other (if not in one row) should be expected."
Pros: "Have not flown Delta for some time and was very impressed. Definitely would fly again."
Pros: "Got my first class seat, smooth ride, early arrival"
Cons: "Late and then mechanical issues."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable. Flight was much too crowded"
Pros: "Nicole and I really like the Economy Plus seating with the extra legroom. It is a good compromise between sitting in cramped Economy seating and spending way too much money in Business Class."
Cons: "I wish that the Seattle Tacoma Airport has an Admiral's Club Lounge. Actually, I might as well fess up... I wish that EVERY airport had an Admiral's Club Lounge. I also wish it would be possible to "gift" miles to family members. I would love to have my son and daughter-in-law take advantage of my miles to go on a honeymoon."
Pros: "Once we took off the flight was quick and smooth"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from 11:55 am take off to a 1:30 pm take off."
Cons: "Was next to crying child. I do understand crying children. But I should have footed a free glass of rose."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled after multiple delays & I changed to United."
Cons: "Stop delaying & canceling flights, especially last minute"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "The delays due to software"
Pros: "Really easy boarding and flight. Great in flight entertainment options."
Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Seat assignment process was great and considerate of my preferences."
Cons: "If AA could fix its luggage handling process that would be great. BOTH (!) of my bags have been lost on this flight. Both have been eventually located, recovered and delivered to me, but experience was not pleasant this time."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and thoughtful."
Cons: "Seating is too tight. Hard to believe that in 2019, major airlines still have seats without any electrical or UBS outlets for charging devices."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Plane was about 1000 years old and I don’t think I’ve sat in a more uncomfortable seat."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and snack / drinks service"
Cons: "Delayed flight departure and bumpy landing"
Cons: "I was apparently "flagged" by British Airways for extra security checks. As I understood it in London, I was randomly selected for this security check. This then apparently meant that I was to be flagged for all subsequent flights. This meant that in Chicago, after going through two other security checks that day (Zurich and London) and completing customs, I had to engage in a full Homeland security check. This involved removing protective covers from my laptop and phone that were hard to get off (not meant to be taken off regularly) and a full body search that I did not have to do in London. After many hours of traveling, this was very a frustrating experience."
Cons: "I will never, ever book with Kayak again"
Pros: "Flight crew was great. The plane was half full, so the attendants allowed us to move."
Cons: "Terrible landing in Charlotte. The plane was rattling and had an annoying whistle."
Cons: "It was not clear that I needed a different 6 letter code to checkin using the AA website. I finally got frustrated and called AA only to find out the code was different. The codes should have been the same or you should have referenced it on the website when I tried to check in"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 4 hours with little communication from staff as to why, gate was changed to a gate across the airport."
Pros: "On an overnight long-haul the thing I hope for most is sleep. The crew rapidly started beverage service after takeoff. Dinner was cleared and lights turned down about 1.5 hours later, including three opportunities for beverages. Lights came back up only about an hour before landing. Despite that no one seemed rushed. Seconds were offered for coffee, passengers had time to use the restroom before de-planing. We likely had almost 4 hours of our approximately 7.5 hour itinerary to attempt sleep."
Cons: "Having said that, the seats are not made for my over 6 feet tall spouse and myself. More leg room isn't going to help a lot. There's too much room between our necks and heads and the headrest so we end up slumped over even if we recline the seats. Hoping to win the lottery so we can afford first class some day."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and easy as well as the crew was friendly and accommodating. Great end to a fun weekend away."
Pros: "Our plane was late getting to the gate. They kept us informed and turned it around pretty quickly. There were storms between Chicago and Rochester so we were rerouted. As a result the hour flight was an hour and a half. The pilot kept us informed and it was a very smooth flight. So even though I was over an hour late arriving I so appreciated the communications and the safer route. AA seems to be communicating more than other airlines and I appreciate that. Flying is absolutely no fun anymore so you take what you can get for the positives."
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working so I couldn’t communicate my late arrival to family picking me up."
Cons: "On my first flight from SLC to ORD I asked 3 different American Airlines employees if I needed to pay for my carryon before I got on the plane. They all said no. I got on the plane, put my carryon under the seat in front of me and everything was great. I landed in Chicago, got to my gate, went to board and this very rude employee stopped me after I scanned my ticket and told me I couldn’t board with my bag. The EXACT bag I had boarded with in SLC. After harshly grabbing my bag and putting it in the carryon basket to check for size, she wouldn’t let me pass by her into the boarding bridge and told me I was going to have to pay. I tried explaining that I had asked I’m SLC if I needed to check it and they had all said no and that it fit under my seat. She said, “I don’t care what they said in SL, this is what I’m saying here.” And directed me to the front desk where I had to pay $50!! $50 for a carryon backpack that fit under my seat comfortably 20 minutes before!! Without saying a word (cause I didn’t want to yell at the poor girl behind the desk) I paid the $50 and proceeded to enter the bridge but before I passed through, the rude woman said, “have a nice flight ma’am” and scoffed!! An audible scoff. So I’m short, I hate American Airlines and I will do my BEST to not have to fly with them in the future."
Pros: "The fact that they re-booked without me having to contact customer service."
Cons: "The connecting flight was cancelled while boarding was in progress at the start of the journey."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by untold circumstances causing us to miss our connecting flight to Venice."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nice crew Spacious plane"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight was very smooth, arrived early, plane clean, service was great."
Cons: "For being in first class, my seat did not recline so I couldn't sleep and audio for my entertainment center was not working"
Pros: "Good time for flight"
Cons: "Tight, hot inside plane, no refreshments"
Cons: "They left the lights on the whole flight"
Cons: "My check in bag it’s lost got wrong boarding pass even when I told them I had electronic boarding pass on my phone. Really disappointed with this."
Cons: "Great trip"
Pros: "Not turbulence"
Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Not eventful."
Pros: "crew was great, plane seemed newer and clean. individual screens worked better than others I've used in flights."
Cons: "newer touch screens were great except viewing angle couldn't be adjusted. standard food was horrible, esp for an international flight; not sure if specialty diets have better meals. kid movies were dubbed into many language options but Chinese was not one for ANY kid films. bathrooms with the same crappy mini sinks that you can't really wash your hands in, esp if someone pukes in it. they should all learn from Japan's ANA airliners with the motion sensor sinks with faucets raised up high enough for you to wash your hands without touching the gross basin."
Pros: "On time, good service."
Cons: "Luggage did not make the transfer on time (Chicago-Charlotte after Tokyo), although they had about 45 minutes to load it. Do not buy an international ticket with less than 1.5 hours transfer time. (It took 45 minutes to get through customs/immigration and retrieve luggage for transfer."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "An S80? Really? This plane was older than me! Horrible plane! The crew looked like they had been up since 4 am. Looked exhausted and unfriendly. I do want to clarify that this was an American Airlines operated plane, not etihad."
Cons: "All was excellent! Only the internet was not working good , payed for all flight access but most of the time the internet was not working. Anyway I contacted support team and they refunded me"
Cons: "The flight was delayed more times than I can count, we got a different reason each time. Weather I can understand, but telling us we are waiting on a specific crew to arrive and then announcing that crew is not for our flight was just terrible communication. No one seemed apologetic. The only thing they did was bring a snack cart over for us, and that got raided by children so many people didn't get anything. We had arranged transport from Orlando to Tampa for that evening, and our rides had to cancel because instead of 7pm we were now arriving at 130am. Your airline's mistakes put everyone at an inconvenience and we weren't offered assistance to fix it. My husband went to ask for help in arranging new transport home, but he couldn't even get to the front of the line. The customer service was terrible. We really enjoyed our first leg of the flight home with American Airlines, but after the second leg and all of the problems we had... we will not fly with American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very cold"
Cons: "This made the check in process extremely frustrating and confusing. Traveling with my elderly dad who had to squeeze between two large men for 7 hours because people who actually booked the airline got priority seating. We had to pay an extra $500 to upgrade to comfortable seats. Not pleased w Kayak."
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: "I enjoyed the entertainment because I don't watch movies in the theater often. The movies I saw in-flight were recent films I've been wanting to see and made time pass fairly quickly."
Cons: "I'm not a giant, but there definitely was not enough leg room in the main cabin. I could not sit comfortably, especially in the middle seat."
Pros: "Good flight. Arrived on time"
Cons: "Jet bridge was broken and needed repair. Delayed departure."
Pros: "The crew were exceptionally friendly and helpful. They made the negatives about the flight much more bearably be their excellence service whether during boarding, in flight, or after landing."
Cons: "I booked the flight originally through british airways and expected your standard, modern plane for cross atlantic travel. Boarding to find myself on a 767 designed (and likely built) in the 80s was rather disappointing."
Pros: "I like the updated airplane were we all had our own Tv's to watch whatever we wanted"
Cons: "Had to switch planes twice late boarding food sucks it what to freaking hot in the plan seat where Uncomfy no freaking movie on our way back I'm not sure if I'll fly again with AA to many complains from people"
Pros: "Seats were really neither notably comfortable nor notably uncomfortable. I think they were slightly on the comfortable side."
Cons: "Would be nice to have more modern aircraft amenities, like power outlets for device charging, and display screens with at least some complimentary entertainment, or at least flight path tracking. Boarding counter lady was obnoxiously strict about not letting our carry-on bags to be carry-on. She made us test them in the size device and said they were too big, even though they could easy be pushed into the space, and regardless of the fact that we just flew on an American Airlines flight with them as carry-on and were only on a layover with them! Regarding the previous AA agent who let them be carry-on, she said "shame on them." Complete opposite of the positive experience we had with her counterpart in Phoenix. ಠ_ಠ"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight and put me to fly the next day"
Pros: "Everybody was nice my ride was comfortable and they treat me with respect"
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "Flight was smooth, boarding was smooth, made good time in the air despite slight delay"
Cons: "We sat on the plane at the gate and then on the tarmac for quite awhile after some delays, but the air conditioning wasn't working. It was incredibly hot, uncomfortable, and I felt sick due to the temperature in the cabin It's just unacceptable to have to sit there in that condition!"
Pros: "They were friendly. Seats are rarely comfortable..."
Cons: "I think all planes need better leg room...."
Cons: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "The flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Too many people with carry on luggage."
Cons: "The Boarding was not fair. The most horrible experience in my life and the Customer Service made me felt like a delinquent."
Pros: "Efficient"
Cons: "Free wifi"
Pros: "One attendant did it all. And very well. Impressive."
Cons: "More snack options."
Pros: "Friendly crew, tasty meals. Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Flight attendants were absolutely amazing!!!!! They made the trip very enjoyable!"
Cons: "Food!"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The entertainment system for an international flight was lacking compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Corralled group lines allowed people to get in line when I was ready versus open entrance for each group"
Cons: "Plane arrived late to gate making my flight arrive in Austin an hour later. I have an ride home, too."
Cons: "Delayed Swiss flight 8 tue 12 dec 2017 led to catastrophe"
Pros: "Quick"
Pros: "Comfortable Flight"
Cons: "Inflight WI-FI doesn’t work, it kept on dropping in the middle of the movie or it went back to the beginning. Couldn’t see a movie."
Pros: "Nothing! I will make sure to never use United for any flight from now on."
Cons: "Everything! The customer service was terrible and cold. Non refundable tickets should state in huge red writing that they are non refundable!!!"
Cons: "You better get rid of basic economy."
Pros: "A FUN HAPPY TIME AS THE CHAPS WHO SAT EITHER SIDE OF ME WERE CHATTY AND HUMOROUS - THEY WERE HAPPY THAT COLUMBUS DAY WAS TO BE CELEBRATED THIS PAST MONDAY AND WHEN I TOLD THEM I WAS TO CELEBRATE CANADIAN THANKSGIVING WITH MY SON AND HIS AMERICAN WIFE AND THEIR 2 CHILDREN - WELL LET'S JUST SAY THE 3 HOURS OF THE FLIGHT FLEW BY. SMILE"
Pros: "No delay, friendly crew"
Pros: "Boarding was fine, no delays. Crew was nice, no complaints there! I had an empty seat next to me, so could stretch out. Luckily I brought a blanket with me, since I know from previous experience it's always too cold on planes."
Cons: "The entertainment didn't work on my iPad or my iPhone. I kept getting an error. Also, the WIFI is way too expensive."
Pros: "Associates were nice and knowledgeable. The airplanes were comfortable. Love the onetime performance of scheduling."
Cons: "Unite Airline performance wasn't the good. Also, there was nobody in Chicago to help us with the transferring process."
Pros: "I had the exit window and that made a huge difference in my trip as I am a 6ft tall woman who is all legs."
Cons: "It was slightly turbulent and TSA at O'hare airport are the rudest and laziest humans on the planet."
Pros: "Snacks and drink"
Cons: "Average"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and cramped."
Cons: "The pilot's landing was way too fast. I was sure that the plane would come to a stop in Hwy 280 at the end of the Asheville runway. That plane probably needed a major brake job after that landing. We ended up at the absolute very end of the runway!"
Pros: "Wasn't thrown off"
Cons: "Another delayed flight with United"
Cons: "They might as well have thrown us in a car trunk the crew was very unaccommodating they didn't really care about us and the room legroom is ridiculously smal. On the connecting flight, the last flight the plane was two thirds empty and the crew made us sit in our assigned seats, crammed together telling us that if we want to sit in a seat with more legroom we have to pay $180"
Cons: "Too many seats too close together. The entire trip was too hot and stuffy. The flight attendants showed minimal care about the uncomfortable hot and stuffy environment."
Pros: "Flight attendant noticed my husbands t-shirt from Galveston and talked briefly about it. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Since it was a smaller plane the seating room was tight."
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "Seats BARELY reclined, and leg room was minimal. The whole flight was very uncomfortable even for someone who's only 5'3" who flys regularly. Also, no in flight entertainment for a long flight. Total fail."
Pros: "Our connecting flight was more comfortable than flight from San Francisco"
Cons: "Delay because of change of plane and 3 gate changes"
Pros: "We'll coordinated."
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable (including her flight to Chicago). The cushion made me slide down the seat and could not get comfortable."
Pros: "My flight in was smooth, seamless and amazing. The crew was so lovely."
Cons: "My flight out was a shot show that included a four hour delay and frantic running to gate changes. The staff was very unhelpful. The snack was awful."
Cons: "I went on this trip as an veterinary humanitarian out reach. I was also guardian to one high school student so that she might have an experience of such to guild her future. Her flight was missed booked to leave after mine, I attempted to rebook my flight with Luthansia but they would not let me me even partial rebook. I attempted a number of times to rebook the flight but their solution was extreme financial gain for them when more reasonable alternative could have been arranged. They canceled my entire return flight and left me stranded. I had to piece together a return flight on a shoe string budget. Thankfully American Airlines was understanding for it appears Luthansia and United are not."
Pros: "In flight entertainment worked. Staff was friendly."
Cons: "I had no issue with the delay, things happen. I was dealing with a knee injury and the gate plan had us all over the airport. It was quite frustrating to get to a gate in another terminal only to get told we were being moved back to the terminal we had just come from! Then that gate was changed again, involving another long walk on said bad knee!"
Pros: "The promptness on the flight -the friendly crew - arriving on time means the most, also the flight itself was smooth"
Cons: "There were no ticketing agents at the gate adding an hour to the flight."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay. No working bathrooms. Couldn't hear the tv and headphones that they gave out were useless."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and the flight wasn't bad at all"
Cons: "It was suggested that I didn't bring my carry on with me so I left it to be voluntarily checked and it came back ripped"
Pros: "Over all it was a great flight aside from the rain delay but that's Mother Nature for you"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to severl technical issues. Crew at least offer free drinks or snacks for the five hour delay."
Pros: "I wish I would have caught her name but the staff member at the boarding gate was fabulous! She is someone I would want representing my company."
Cons: "The wafer served with the beverage & my seat assignment stunk."
Pros: "I had no complications before/during this flight. It was as if the air travel angels were smiling down on me, making little decisions like, "Sure. Give her that rare luxury of having no one sitting beside her... twice in a row. And toss in not one, but two of those United Airlines cookies." (Those cookies are sooooo good.) Really, at the moment, I can think of nothing anyone could've done any better."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Nice clean planes and seat, on time performance"
Cons: "The flight attendant was hard to understand"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was angry that I had to fly to Houston before heading to Phoenix which made my arrival in AZ much later than I had planned. My flight had been rescheduled since I missed my flight the night before because the first flight had been delayed. So the new flight was a longer trip because of the extra layover. The overall flight was a mess."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Multiple delays and gate changes; chaotic boarding; shabby plane condition (bathroom looked held together with duct tape)."
Pros: "Nice crew and boarding staff. The plane was repaired rather than the flight being cancelled."
Cons: "No airconditioning on the ground so the extra time on the tarmac was very uncomfortable. While taxiing, a screen went blank, so the plane returned to the terminal, deplaned, and there was a two hour delay for the repair."
Pros: "Tons of food and water. Movies good. Staff on plane were excellent. Clean bathrooms and peacful. Nice that headphones were provided."
Cons: "Seats should not be set to go back so far, if a person in front sets back all way, no space passenger behind. The seats should be calibrated to go back less of an angle."
Cons: "Some inspector idiot decided that the exterior cover stickers weren't "up to code" literally half an hour before my flight, delaying us 2 hours. I got onto a different flight at the last second, then the same thing happened to that plane. Brilliant on their parts. I almost lost a job interview thanks to your people."
Cons: "Boarding went quickly but then waited almost 35 minutes on the plane to take off. Once the plane landed there was again a wait to pull into the gate. Spent more time waiting on the plane than the flight itself."

Frontier is probably the last carrier I will travel with in the future. The ticket agents, gate attendants and crew were not friendly at all. The fees are ridiculous and no other carrier charges extra for over 40 lbs.

Bad service over charge for everything and always late

My 1st time flying and I was very please. Staff were excellent.

Pros: "The crew was very helpful towards my elderly mother. The plane was clean."
Cons: "For the price I paid, I don't see how things could have been improved."
Cons: "late take off 30 minutes waiting for clearance from headquarters not airport"
Cons: "Free food and baggage"
Cons: "The flight came in early which was great, but it Took 2 hours to get our luggage. Apparently there were not enough Frontier personnel."
Pros: "Terrible seats, very cramped, but clean"
Pros: "non-stop, pilot made up time of initial delay due to medical, price"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That they charged me $65 for a carry on bag ..the person told me an amount went to the machine get a card get charged $5 extra for the card go to the counter they tell me a diffrent amount have to get a diffrent card more money..i made a facebook post to never fly with this company ever again"
Pros: "This airline is completely disorganized and with no apologies. I waited an hour in a bag drop line and then an hour and a half in the plane with no real explanation as to why. Planes are super bare bones which is fine. They just seem to be incredibly understaffed and unorganized as a company. All of the attendants and desk workers were trying their best but were set up for failure"

Pros: "Efficient, cost effective."
Cons: "Chairs don't recline, food for "purchase" only."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable trip. By the time I was done paying for baggage and a seat cus I don’t want to sit in the middle I could have bought a more expensive flight"
Pros: "Kind attentive staff"
Cons: "We had to wait a half hour, or so, On the tarmac before we could leave Philly"
Pros: "Didn't crash"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats and flight was late"
Pros: "I paid 270$ extra for the carry on bags for the three tickets. If I knew that I would have chosen United tickets because they would be cheaper."
Cons: "Kayak you guys fooled me and I’ll not trust you again."
Cons: "Flight took too long to go off"
Cons: "I was forced to pay for my carry-on which was the same price as the check in bag. The complimentary drink and nuts were a charge and I missed my layover flight because they did not announce it. I want my money back! I had to get a whole new ticket from a different airline."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 1/2 hours then my bag didn't arrive at baggage claim for 45 minutes"
Pros: "cheapest flight I could find. The flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "seats were very uncomfortable because they were basically plastic and they didn't fold back. very little space for my knees."
Pros: "The person checking me in was nice"
Cons: "Carry on luggage fees are too high On board snacks are too expensive Seats are not that comfortable"
Pros: "Friendly crew, and on time flights."
Cons: "Having to pay extra to sit together with my spouse, when the tickets was purchased together."
Pros: "Everything was ontime - and the flight was even a few minutes early. I like the streamlined seats - they are a little firmer which is actually better for one's body than more cushiony seats."
Cons: "Knowing it's a no-frills airline, I expected every additional thing to cost money, which can be kind of a nuisance, but I was prepared and did not mind. My main complaint would be more about the airport - the Frontier gates have only one shop - a Dunkin donuts nearby. A magazine stand and other eating establishments are always nice to have near the gate! This is more a complaint with IAD than with Frontier"
Pros: "I got where I needed to be at a low cost."
Cons: "Crew seemed unhappy. Seats are even more compact than other airlines(or so it felt)."
Pros: "I got a great deal on Kayak but after taxes and carryon fees it was not a super deal."
Pros: "There was urine pooling on the floors of both bathroom. I told the crew and their response was "we don't clean". Fifty plane."
Pros: "clean"
Cons: "No internet connectivity. This is an ABSOLUTE deal breaker for me. I MUST have this to be able to work."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Seats don't recline, and the tray tables are a little bigger then the boarding pass. Fine for a short flight but not a cross country one."
Cons: "There was no communication about how long this delay was going to be. As we approached two hours I became nervous that I was not going to make it for my father's funeral the next day. I spoke to the man at the desk and explained my predicament and he was unable to give information as to whether I should seek another carrier. Ultimately, he said he had 'a good idea' that the flight would be boarding soon, and that I should not go back to the booking area to seek another provider as I might miss this flight. All this was super disconcerting given the gravity of my situation."
Pros: "Smooth ride, wonderfully professional, cheerful crew. Seats were comfortable, though tight. Check-in/bag drop was slow but agents were cheerful and helpful. Flight departed on time and landed early."
Cons: "Checked bag was badly damaged (bent frame) but hoping to receive satisfaction from submitted damage report tomorrow. Frontier charges for beverages, so a bottle of water or can of soda is 2.50-$3.00! Important to pay for all bags early as paying at the airport is more expensive, plus Frontier charges for carry-on bags. One free personal item only."
Pros: "We arrived 40 minutes early. Flight attendants were friendly."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Original ticket price was cheaper than other airlines, but after the $35 overhead baggage fee, the a la carte costs for a drink and snack, and the extra $120 for business class, we paid over $200 more per person per ticket that the past 4 times we've flown on Delta. Won't fly Frontier again."
Cons: "First they delayed the flight for X then they downgraded the airplane so that it would be a full flight then they overbooked the flight"
Pros: "Stewardess was nice"
Cons: "Seating uncomfortable, trays are so small couldn't even set up a laptop. Charge for all drinks even bottled water"
Pros: "Boarding announcements were clear, the process was prompt and friendly! Inflight crew were so efficient!"
Pros: "Stewardess was funny."
Cons: "Everything else."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Everything is am upcharge! Food, bags, seats... they even charge for all beverages and ask for a tip on top of it. The seats don't recline and tgere is no entertainment. I will not fly Frontier Airlines ever again. What a disappointment."
Cons: "The worst flight I've ever taken"
Cons: "Frontier nicked and died you at every turn - even for carryon luggage. 2 dollars for an in flight coke. End the end just as expensive as the better airlines."
Pros: "We took off and landed safely."
Cons: "Extra charges for everything, including all bags, choosing a seat and even buying a ginger ale. The playful upbeat tone of Frontier Airlines is all gone."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was late. Showing up, departing, and arriving! The seats felt like I was sitting on cardboard and they didn't recline. The flight attendants didn't offer me any water. It seems they were only concerned with selling me something to drink."
Pros: "The storms in the front range were nasty. The pilot kept us informed and I felt safe in a potentially dangerous situation."
Cons: "Changing rules about the size of carry on bags. Indifferent flight attendants but I pay for the convenience of a direct flight and pilot expertise"
Pros: "Not a single thing. Horrible experience completely."
Cons: "The crew was rude and disrespectful. The entire trip was uncomfortable, ridiculously over priced for the quality of the crew and horrible all around."
Cons: "Online checking in is a bit confusing and frustrating."
Pros: "Seats to recline a little bit, complimentary drinks ( soda, tea, coffee, water )"
Cons: "Seats did not recline and uncomfortable on 3 hr trips."
Pros: "Easy boarding, clean plane and bathroom."
Cons: "My chair didn't let back so it was a bit uncomfortable but I had decent leg room on an aisle seat."
Pros: "I was charged $40 for my bag, $2 for a soda that I didn't finish and my seat was $42. The 6 gate crew members in Atlanta were a joke (1 was eating a bag of cheetos). They allowed 4 people to run up the gangway to the plane without checking their tickets before the plane was cleaned from the previous flight. They had to call security to be sure the men never made it on board. They were extremely unprofessional and unorganized. Upon embarkation I had to remind her that I had a ticket that she needed to check! I required assistance with my bag, and had to shove it under my seat because i couldn't lift it. I will not be using them again. BTW, my American ticket was $26, included 1 bag and beverage service."
Cons: "I have never flown an airline that has to explain to the passengers that they must sit in their assigned seats. This statement was repeated several times during the boarding process. I have never experienced a flight quite like this one, the gate agents boarded no less than 6 or 7 times to escort people to their seats. We were over 30 minutes late leaving because of "weather" but I believe that it's code for incompetence. The flight crew were the only professionals on board. I have to say the woman at the ticket counter was quite helpful and very calm even when passengers became upset with her for charging the bag fee. The flight attendants were friendly but not attentive."
Cons: "I was shocked to be charged a $40 fee for a carry-on bag. This was a hidden fee to me, as I did not know about this charge and no other airlines have this fee."
Pros: "Hummm, landed safely! I do like that "carry on" people have to pay extra."
Cons: "No reclining seats even after paying an extra $50 for the good seats (and to ensure sitting by spouse). Cannot even get a glass of water without an extra charge."
Pros: "Flight crew pleasant, even making sarcastic comments about the cheapness of their airline. For example, "If you don't like our service, there are 8 emergency exits on this plane." We arrived safely and our bags got there too!"
Cons: "It was a tough day due to weather delays and cancellations, but the airport crew was overwhelmed and failed to control the massive crowd. At one point, service members started calling out destinations and it became a free for all. Passengers jumped over each other and across the ropes to cut in front. Elderly and children were pushed aside. At the gate, it was announced "in 15 minutes, we will ask passengers needing help to board", followed immediately by another crew member "we are already boarding all passengers!", then right back to the first crew "we are not boarding yet, we will start boarding in 15 minutes". Confusion! Departure was listed on time, but we really left 40 minutes late."
