Delta cancelled flight due to weather, which turned out to be sunny. Then rebooked me on a 2 stop flight the next day. Now been on hold for 4 hours with them...

Even tho we paid to have seat next to each other we had to give them up, and my husband who just had major surgery on his hand was given an isle seat which was part of the reason we PAID to have seats next to each other and him in a middle seat

Pros: "The flight between Dothan and Atlanta was hot both ways - several guys were drenched in sweat by the time we got to ATL (which unfortunately is usually transferring for a longer flight elsewhere)..."
Cons: "If the Delta gate agent makes a change, make sure you get a printout of the changes... Our gate agent told us she had corrected a earlier problem (created when Delta changed our flight 2 different times within the month before our flight) and really created a mess with our seats on board, luckily one of the flight attendants was walking by when the gate agent told me and my daughter that she had moved us to the same row... Since, she has then given away our original seats... SMH..."
Pros: "Crew was nice the flight was smooth and comfortable seats."
Pros: "Like the pleasantries from the Delta crew"
Cons: "More snacks :) !!!!"
Cons: "Food service Leg room"
Pros: "You're kidding!!!"
Cons: "Seating 3 across. the passenger on the isle seat got served and the other passenger and myself were ignored. NO SERVICE!"
Cons: "5 hours delay. Most of that time we were on the runway. We even had to deplane and board again. We were given all kind of excuses till the pilot himself said that this is unheard off !!"
Cons: "More leg room and seat width. I don’t like having other passengers pressed against me."
Cons: "Left A bag behind in NY"
Pros: "Nice crew. Stable flight."
Cons: "No gluten free snack options."
Pros: "Crew was great, just not very much room."
Cons: "Larger seat room."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing, keep at it"
Pros: "36 minute flight.."
Cons: "Not really much you can do"
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight due to delay and late arrival! No help getting seats on a later flight or next morning."
Pros: "Delta personnel at DTW knew they were overwhelmed and did everything they could to mitigate the problems."
Cons: "Delta should have had more than 3 staff on to check in 300 people."
Cons: "At least one hour late"
Pros: "No problems"
Cons: "Takes so long to board plane"
Pros: "I liked the cookies and juice. The interactive screen to watch something. The cleanliness. The price. On time. The service. Thank you. The excitement of flying."
Cons: "Very slow to load and unload. Not sure how I always get a middle seat in the far back. Basic economy is basic."
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of snacks and drinks on such a short flight."
Pros: "The fact that I was so relaxed."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "17 minutes late, arrived 5 minutes early. Crew Friendly. If you agree ALL airlines screw you ( and they do) Delta is about as good as you can get."
Pros: "Quick!"
Pros: "Nice plane staff"
Cons: "Very hot airport. Having to load plane outside (hotter on tarmac). Then Delta being 3.50 hours late. Sitting in a hot airport for 6 hours. Not my idea of fun"
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: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos, please reimburse on the credit card"
Cons: "I can’t make it in mexico city on tuesday, wednesday’s performance had to be cancelled and we need to pay the cancellation fee 11500 mexican pesos of the studio and musicians"
Pros: "Everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Nothing!!!!!!!!!11111!!!!1111111!!1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "I got to fly where I needed to go."
Cons: "The vents above my entire row of seats did not work, meaning there was never any air coming out even when they were fully open. This made for a long, hot, claustrophobic ride. The flight attendants seemed first disbelieving and later unconcerned that no air came out of our vents. I doubt they even reported them as broken after the flight. Delta's new boarding process is absolute chaos. More than half the plane had no seats assigned until 20 minutes before boarding, and the seats were displayed on a screen a good 25 feet away from the gate, meaning people had to constantly walk back and forth between the doorway and the screen. The gate agents were clearly overwhelmed. If this is how Delta is organized now, I won't be flying on them again."
Pros: "I had the opportunity to send my carry on to the final destination. The flight was overbooked and there was no place to put carry on on the top place."
Cons: "I did not have the chance to choose my seat. I traveled sandwiched by two overweighted guys. I was holding my arms and was literally compressed by the gentlemen. Horrible experience. If I had the chance to choose my seat I would pick the corridor, and had a little less embarrassment and sweating."
Cons: "Having to wait a long time standing in line before boarding the plane."
Pros: "Got upgraded to comfort class it was comfy"
Pros: "Wow! One of the passengers on the plane looked exactly like Anne Coulter!!!"
Pros: "Got exit seats with extra leg room at no charge . Flight was quick and crew was very accomadating and friendly. Very good at providing updates and delays"
Pros: "Our flight attendants were lovely people specifically the first class attendant and he was humorous and witty, polite and friendly trying to make our christmas eve late night flight to be enjoyable."
Cons: "When we touched down in a blizzard we were told there was no jetway available and we had to climb down an icy ladder to walk probably 1000 feet on black ice barely seeing where we were going and at least one person fell and overall it was just very unprofessional and not the quality of service I expect from Delta."
Pros: "The plane was really cool. Some more advanced technologies than other Airline companies. Crew was good too."
Cons: "Issue happened with my landing. Didn't make it in time to next gate. Delta did everything they could to blame me, insulted me on The phone and definitely provided the worst customer service"
Cons: "3.5 hours late."
Pros: "Friendliness, spirit, organization of crew."
Cons: "The obvious- no leg room, no food"
Pros: "Crew very nice"
Pros: "LGA caused massive delays due to construction."
Cons: "Nice airplane with good seats and legroom"
Pros: "My flight was delayed 40 minutes in Detroit after a 3 hour lay over we boarded the plane. Then 45 minutes into the flight they said the landing gear light came on and they would be going back to change plans. My mother with Lymes disease was waiting 3 hours in Providence supposed to arrive a 11:50 instead 2:50am we were so tired missed a day of vacation."
Cons: "Rough flight and landing."
Cons: "As usual, a small space on a full flight. Pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."
Cons: "Delayed 12 hours"
Cons: "The handle on my checked bag was broken when I got it at immigration. Not sure why they pulled out the handle since it was retracted when checked in."
Pros: "everything, thank you."
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: "Flight left on time and got in early. This allowed us to catch an earlier flight to Seattle."
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."
Cons: "Really sad in time of Covid19 they sell minimal seats but then put everyone! who did not purchase a seat in the back of the plane, 6 across with ABSOLUTELY NO regard for social distancing, despite the fact the plane was only 1/3 full. The staff gave some BS excuse that weight needed to be distributed to the back of the plane...BS! I was a single person in a middle seat, seated between 2 strangers, one coughing. No wonder our kids' generation believes big business needs to be brought down!"
Pros: "The flight was great. The customer service over the phone and online was pretty bad. I had long holds on the phone and my itinerary got changed, which I then had to PAY the fix."
Cons: "Easier to navigate website, and be more clear about what you will be charged for."
Pros: "Window seat"
Cons: "Lower fares"
Pros: "Crew was excellent, always smiling and upbeat!"
Cons: "I don't think it could have been, I will definitely fly Frontier again!"
Pros: "I slept"
Pros: "Very fast flight. Got to destination early."
Cons: "One flight attendant was pretty rude. Her poor attitude was noticed by multiple passengers."
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."
Cons: "Missed flight due to delayed one of 5 plus hours"
Pros: "Check in crew is efficient."
Cons: "Check in procedures are arduous. No kiosks, long lines. baggage fees are ridiculously high."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The inability of someone to take responsibility of the mistakes made by DIA and Frontier airlines. I will be bringing this to the attention of Corporate regarding this incident, and if need be I will be contacting the media"
Pros: "The agent was very helpful with my rescheduling. I am hoping my flight two days from now will go well."
Cons: "There was a six hour delay without any likelihood of a departure. Frontier I was told had problems acquiring a crew."
Pros: "Nothing. Would rather take a bus or pay the $ to fly a normal airline."
Cons: "The service is trashy. Frontier customer service hung up on me when I called to complain about rude service. The cheap price is a scam if you have anything more than a personal bag. Absolutely terrible airline. Will not ever fly again."
Pros: "Great landing"
Cons: "It was awful. The flight attendants are rude and have no consideration for the passengers. They sit in the galley having very loud personal conversations late at night."
Cons: "I reserved seats for both flights @ 13.00 per seat (2) and never got the seats I reserved."
Pros: "Getting to Nashville eventually"
Cons: "The 2 hours delay departure. The crew had no idea what happened. It was a big secret"
Pros: "The crew were friendly, helpful,. We were on time that is a plus."
Cons: "The family behind me were very rude, especially their child who kicked my seat many times, and hit me in the head twice"
Pros: "Not much. I really can't find much good to say other than that the gate agents took a tremendous amount of grief and stayed professional."
Cons: "Everything else. People, don't be fooled by the low prices - it is not worth it. Avoid Frontier like the plague. Flight from SAN to MCO was cancelled, rebooked 14 hrs later. We were 6 min past curfew leaving SAN and they returned us to the gate. Crew made no effort to hurry. They were ignorant or indifferent. Leaving MCO a week later flight was supposed to depart at 9:00 PM and was delayed 3.5 hrs and then cancelled. Next available flight was 24 hrs later. Frontier apparently only has one flight out of MCO daily. I had to book with Delta to get back to SAN within reason. I will never fly on Frontier again."
Cons: "My luggage was lost."
Cons: "Flight attendant didn't take the time to read the entire certification label on our child's car seat. As a result she made me gate check it (no cost at least)...trying to keep a 2 year old in a seat for 3 hours with a lap belt that doesn't fit tightly doesn't seem like the best option. After we landed and I retrieved the seat, I spoke with the attendant and respectfully pointed out that it was in fact certified for aircraft. She apologized and accepted the feedback."
Pros: "Only the boarding, it was smooth."
Cons: "I was ready for not having the power outlets, no complains about that part, but I didn't realize that the Frontier airlines would be so obsessed about saving their money that you can't even have a free glass of plain water!, everything is for purchase only. I am not even mentioning juices, tea, coffee etc., which are complimentary in all other airlines. The seats cannot be reclined, so you have to sit straight for all the duration of the flight. I hope the Frontier corporate staff monitors these reviews and will improve, but honestly I doubt. Once a person or an airline becomes greedy, there is no way they will change for the best."
Pros: "The saying is true .. you get what you pay for. Flight was delayed 6 hours, they offered us a 10 meal voucher. No one wanted to try and help those of us that were inconvenienced. The customer service was poor and the agents at the counters were extremely unprofessional. Flights were cheap but the hassle was not worth the savinga."
Pros: "Efficient from the crowded baggage check to baggage claim. Great Job!"
Cons: "Seats don't recline, get what you pay for!"
Cons: "Cost of original ticket was very misleading. Frontier is good if you have no baggage"
Pros: "Cheap price. Fight was on time."
Cons: "Crowded flight. Seats very uncomfortable for a 4 hour flight. Plane engine noise was unusually loud"
Pros: "The attendants who operated the wheelchairs were fantastic!"
Pros: "went from point A to point B, that's what I paid for and that's what I got"
Cons: "seats were uncomfortable but what can you do"
Cons: "Take off"
Pros: "The Air Bus 321 was clean and the staff were friendly."
Cons: "They put us on a broken plane and it took 2.5hrs to fix and get us in the air. Offering a high rate credit card with miles on it is not at all acceptable."
Pros: "Everyone was polite during the check in and boarding process and both occurred smoothly and efficiently."
Cons: "Turbulence can be expected during any flight, however, when the entire length of the flight has turbulence and the pilots do not mention the possibility of this it can become anxiety inducing. It is most reassuring prior to take off knowing that there will be expected turbulence due to weather, and then continued updates during the flight. I believe communication from the pilots should be more than "prepare for take off" and "prepare for landing"."
Pros: "The cost of luggage AND carry on came to the cost of another ticket. The lugguge was lost (well, never put on the plane), but was delivered late at night, the next night. The flight left an hour late. The flight was booked solid so the plane was full and crowded."
Pros: "PRICE WITHOUT LUGGAGE"
Cons: "SEATS KILLED MY BACK DID NOT RECLINE CARRY ON COST TOO MUCH YOU DO NOT FLY DIRECT FROM FLINT MICHIGAN TO PHOENIX"
Cons: "Carry on price. Was not told about carry on price."
Cons: "Replacement flights would have required us to lose two days and spend the night in Denver - not our destination"
Pros: "Wow. Talk about ripoff. I had to pay 40 dollars to carry on my own bag. The seats didn't even recline. You had to pay a premium price to get the reclining seats. Crew was nice but made no attempt to help the woman vomiting beside me or the elderly ladies next to me. I felt like they should have paid me the 40 dollars for taking care of there customers. Spend a little extra and ride a different airline. They were the worse."
Cons: "Fronter seems to be delayed often"
Pros: "My God what an excruciating 3 hour endeavor. Kicks, screams, and all in the awful pitch of a little brat. Kid wouldn't sit down and wouldn't shut up. Flight was full so when I asked to move there were no other options. In all of the flights of my life, by far the worst experience."
Cons: "Price"
Cons: "Seats don't recline. You have to pay for drinks ( water, etc). Seats small. Not worth it"
Pros: "Boarding announcements were clear, the process was prompt and friendly! Inflight crew were so efficient!"
Pros: "At least, paying for carry on baggage allowed me to board a bit faster (though if you don't have carry on, you don't care about finding room for your luggage...)"
Cons: "No complimentary food nor drinks, no entertainment in flight, pay to choose your seat, and seats did not even recline."
Pros: "The people were very friendly. The initial price was the lowest to fly."
Cons: "They charged for a carry-on bag, charged for any checked bags, charged to pick a seat on the flight. None of that information is available before purchasing a ticket. I will fly southwest next time."
Cons: "That I had to pay &46 got my carry on luggage & that all drinks & snacks cost money"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Deceptive pricing practices. Hidden charges. The advertised price looks low but then they charge for carry on bags, seat selection, etc. I was surprised they didn't charge me for the glass of water. Of course you don't find out all this until it's time to check in. Also the seats were like metal folding chairs that you couldn't even recline at all."
Cons: "Everything about Frontier tells me that they'd prefer to stick me in their size box and charge me extra."
Pros: "Clean seats"
Cons: "Same as previous."
Cons: "because of flight delayed 2 times I missed my ride in NewYork and I had to take taxi. I paid extra 100$ for the taxi"
Cons: "We were stuck at the airport for over 8 hours. Nobody gave us any information for a while. Nobody gave us any voucher for food or anything. I missed a really important event because I was stuck at the airport."
Cons: "They don't ever provide water! But, then, the fold-down tray was so small a cup wouldn't balance on it."
Pros: "My son has autism, we were allowed to board first with plenty of time to get settled into our seats. This was EXTREMELY helpful. We both enjoyed the humor and joy spread by the crew, even the pilots injected some fun into the trip."
Cons: "Fee for checked and carry-on baggage. Fee for food & drink. Tight sitting space, little leg room."
Cons: "there was a charge for carry on that was not disclosed when i bought the ticket. further, i was unable to get the ticket from home so had to go through the extra time to go to the ticket counter."
