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: "The carrots were hard and the bread was cold."

Pros: "Comfortable plane due to few passengers"
Cons: "7 hour delay after flight postponed."

Cons: "I would ask that the gate does not share in detail reason for delay in seat assignment is related to getting a family sitting together when the basic rules should apply unilaterally."

Pros: "Got to my destination without any issues"
Cons: "Seats/seating area are too small, and I'm not a big person."

Pros: "No"
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost 6 hours, the crew was rude and the “comfort +” seats had very little leg room ."

Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was pleasant and looked like they enjoyed working in the air."
Cons: "Our second time on a 787 Dreamliner across the Atlantic as about the same as the the first. The seat pitch is very tight so when a passenger reclines into the next row the seatback nearly touches your face. The Dreamliner seats seem to be very hard and it's difficult to get comfortable."

Cons: "No AC for an hour before takeoff - very uncomfortable. Audio for tv did not work."

Cons: "Flight was delayed a bit due to a couple passenger booking/misc issues. 1st class didn’t get gate bevfood service. Oven was busted so my meal wasn’t available. Entertainment console had all channels functional except — not really an issue I just really wanted to have ESPN playing in the background"

Pros: "Son got wings, so was happy."
Cons: "No entertainment."

Cons: "It was late"

Pros: "Crew was nice and welcoming"
Cons: "Well, if our plane had been leaving on time it would've been superb."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Chinese Eastern did not try to help and solve my problem."

Pros: "After the long overseas flight this was quick. Nice that it included snacks and beverages."
Cons: "Had to sit on the run way a bit as we were coming in at Albany but not for very long."

Pros: "There was a bit of a mixup in boarding the plane but otherwise the flight was good. There was no entertainment system on this short flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant & efficient. They only served snacks on this short flight but were very good at ensuring everyone had at least one or more beverages. The premium seats were very comfortable ."

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant was not willing to go above and beyond as he stated he would. My husband asked for a coke and the flight attendant told him he could only get water."

Pros: "On time departure/arrival despite weather in Atlanta. Always a fan of free messaging and choice of snacks."
Cons: "Delta needs to invest in their gate area at ORD. Understand it’s not a hub but it’s a key business/leisure destination. The MD-80s are ok for a short hop but over 1 hour unless you’re in Comfort+, it’s tight."

Pros: "Snacks, cleanliness and crew"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "From the begging they changed the flights for something totally different. It was a 14 hour trip. Awful"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They take them forever to find me another fly ,make miss my other fly, my work my time and my sleep"

Pros: "Quick service, good information."
Cons: "Not applicable, it was a good flight."

Pros: "Newer plane, even though it was a short flight there was a choice of movies and tv shows. Crew was very nice."

Pros: "It was a normal flight as well expected."

Pros: "I was with my friend"
Cons: "Delayed 12+ hours"

Pros: "We had a 2 1/2 delay due to mechanical issues but the crews, flight and ground, did a great job. Thanks."

Pros: "I was given a complimentary upgrade."

Pros: "The crew and pilot were absolutely amazing."
Cons: "This is my 3rd delta flight in a row that has been delayed. I understand these things happen, just extremely frustrating."

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"

Cons: "It takes time and worries to find the air train and Aeroflot registration."

Pros: "My flight was great. Boarding was easy and the seats were comfortable."

Pros: "The service was amazing , the staff was honestly friendly and nice"

Pros: "Great service, nice agent friendly"

Pros: "Very friendly and professional gate agent and flight attendant"

Cons: "I was unable to fly at all due to a spelling error on my ticket. The airline refused to alter the ticket. Worst experience of my life, ruined my Christmas"

Pros: "Very nice flight and attentive staff. Enjoyed the view of NYC as we flew up the East River, then looped over Nassau County to approach LGA."
Cons: "The male flight attendant who handed out the complimentary drinks and snacks acted a bit strangely. I was very thirsty, and I asked him if I could keep the rest of the can of soda. He neither said yes nor no, but rather completely ignored what I said and just poured my drink and moved on. I was a mildly annoyed, but figured maybe it was policy and he was shy and didn't want to debate the matter. When he took care of the older couple behind us, however, things got really strange. He asked them whether they wanted pretzels or peanuts, but they misheard him and asked for a ginger ale. I happened to know that he did have ginger ale, since my wife had just gotten one, but rather than just pouring the old folks a drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" They misheard again and asked him whether he had a diet ginger ale. Again, rather than just pour them the drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" This went round and round a few more times -- like a poorly designed computer UI that refuses to accept anything except the correct input -- before the old couple finally figured out the disconnect and picked their snacks before their drinks. Very weird."

Cons: "Layover"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Too cold Not friendly boarding agent"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay for no apparent reason at first (supposed mechanical issues with plane) and then waited on plane at gate for a missing pilot who never got picked up from his airport and got stuck in Chicago traffic trying to get to O'Hare. Eventually had to take pilot from another flight before leaving at 8:45 when flight was scheduled for 6:00am."

Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Snacks!!! Nice flight crew."
Cons: "I liked everything."

Pros: "The Gogo Inflight wifi and entertainment did not work for even a minute. I choose flights based on their amenities and this one had offered full WIFI service which swayed me to choose to fly with Delta. I'm not sure who is to blame about this issue but I'm pretty frustrated that it was completely dysfunctional."

Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."

Pros: "I missed my flight for the first time and I was having a complete meltdown at the check in desk until the sweetest agent said "oh no worries sweetheart, let's find you another flight back home"... It seems so simple but with the morning I had, this simple act had me in tears! The kindness and patience she showed me was amazing and definitely the reason I will always fly Delta to any and every destination they are able to take me! <3"

Pros: "No fee to get on an earlier flught"
Cons: "When I tried to rebook online this flight was not an option"

Cons: "I am a 5'3" 125# woman who, unfortunately, had a middle seat assignment. The passenger to my right, on the aisle, weighed approximately 375# and took up 1/3 of my seat. The arm was not able to go down comfortably, and when it did it was not usable . The passenger on my left, window seat, was probably 6'7" and had to sit with a man spread in order to fit. I could not move and was extremely uncomfortable. The plane was overbooked so I was unable to move. Therefore, worst flight ever. Plus, I paid for a full seat and was only able to occupy half of it."

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 in-flight service was good."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor hospitality by alaska airline staff, especially by MrPavel at gate H4, 01nov2016, prior boarding around 0730am"

Cons: "The "Delta Comfort" seats were not comfortable: the armrest didn't raise, so the seats were narrow. The handle of our suitcase got broken."

Cons: "Did not allow use of exit rows to improve social distancing (those seats “not in my class of service“). Flight was crowded."

Pros: "Cheapest flight to Cyprus"
Cons: "Dirty, cramped, and they neglected to send my luggage on from Amman."

Pros: "Exit row seat very roomy with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Flight from ORD to LGA delayed even though the plane was already at the gate in ORD. No announcement explaining why it was delayed. What was worse was that after landing at LGA, baggage tagged as Priority did not come out first, it came out much later - after numerous non-priority baggage came out. This is not the first time this has happened at LGA. What's the point of tagging it as Priority if it won't be handled that way?"

Cons: "This agent spent 30+ min to check us in through a connection flight to Seattle. He couldn't find my wife's reservation, when it should be in the same reservation as me. He tried 5 times, and still failed. Later we found out at the gate that he was using the wrong name (same last name, different first name). Luckily the American Airline agent at the gate was more than competent and efficient to correct the issue in 5 min."

Cons: "Horrible delays. Delta doesn't have these problems."

Pros: "Always delayed. Always check my carry on. Which equals me being late to where I'm going."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Food was decent, service was okay"

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: "Crew was very nice. Free snacks provided on plane."

Pros: "United airlines canceled a flight last minute that I needed in order to get to my best friends' wedding on time, I usually fly AA but the United flights were slightly cheaper at the time. The options United gave me would have had me missing the wedding, AA had more flights that allowed me to make it in time, considering it was booked 12 hours before take-off, it was decently reasonable and left on time and got in early (imagine that, United). Thank you American Airlines, again!"

Cons: "Surprisingly, AA provided the worst experience of the overall itinerary, compared to Aer Lingus and Iberia. The AA plane was outdated, cramped legroom - despite having purchased an "upgraded seat" and departed 1hr late"

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very cold"

Cons: "The entertainment system in my seat was broken. Was a bummer since we added a extra hour ground hold for weather."

Pros: "Once I made it, they worked to get me on the plane from Chicago quickly."
Cons: "I barely made it for my flight in Chicago and that was with running. They were already boarding the other plane when my plane from Hattiesburg landed. Earlier in the day I had to get them to change my flight from Chicago in Hattiesburg because it wasn't changed for me when the delay had my original flight leaving before I was to land in Chicago. I don't fault them for someone getting sick at the last minute or my inconvenience, but it was still inconvenient."

Cons: "30 minutes late taking off. Therefore arrived late."

Cons: "Tsa is very unorganized and extremely rude."

Pros: "In flight movie options are great!"
Cons: "We boarded about an hour late but that happens."

Pros: "NOT much!"
Cons: "My window seat was right against the right engine. I could feel the vibrations and noise. It seemed like an old plane. I was definitely miserable on this flight. Very!"

Pros: "I appreciated the American Airlines crew at the gate in Chicago, who helped us to get two seats together. The flight crew was excellent as well."
Cons: "Not being able to choose our seats beforehand."

Cons: "it was an hour late"

Pros: "Was listed on-time up to 20 minutes before boarding. Then the departure time kept getting pushed back until we departed two hours late"
Cons: "If there is a delay, I'd rather them just be up front in estimating the time of the delay."

Pros: "In your Chicago office. He was extremely helpful both to us (too older ladies) and to others. Please thank him for us and look at him for a promotion. I think he may work for American Airlines instead of British Airways."

Pros: "First class flight attendant was awesome!!"

Pros: "Actually, I like that it was late because my first flight arrived late. The flight overall was very quick and smooth."
Cons: "The seats were covered in crumbs from the previous flight, but that's probably because of the hurry to get passengers on to the next flight because the plane was late."

Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Overweight flight attendant bumped into me everytime they went down the aisle making sleep very difficult."

Pros: "The crew was great and getting 2 meals was very nice."
Cons: "My headphone jack kept malfunctioning (loud popping noises in my earbuds) while watching the movie and all the reading lights came on and stayed on the majority of the flight so sleeping was difficult."

Pros: "We boarded on time and arrived early. What more can ya ask for? Fairly easy ride. Free entertainment on board, movies and shows! Awesome."
Cons: "The speaker that the pilot used was static-y, hard to understand. No free wifi option. Rough landing."

Pros: "Staff was very nice; very courteous."
Cons: "We were delayed for 2 hours! I had a premium seat but still ended up boarding with Group 6. Almost ran out of room and had to check my roller. Not happy with late boarding given that when I booked my ticket, it said I'd have priority seating."

Pros: "All connections-smooth"

Pros: "We did not take this flight when its schedule was moved back, instead taking one LHR-SEA that would get us home at a reasonable hour."
Cons: "The change by British Air in flight departure/arrival times. The resulting adjustment was costly and we were unable to get "extra" seating on the long leg of the trip by the time we were notified of the changes."

Pros: "More options for entertainment on a long flight."

Cons: "one of the worst trip ever. although there were many turbulances, the captain did not appear to be proficient along the way. The landing was horrible as well."

Cons: "Ground crew was inadequate and unorganized. Ground crew caused a late flight to be even later. Plane was overbooked and the ground crew was more interested in filling the flight than accommodating Advantage Member seating."

Pros: "When we arrived, we found the plane was changed, and our seats were in the middle, and separated. We had paid extra to have window seats.. After speaking to one of the gate attendant ( Arturo ), he went out of his way to accommodate us, and we ended up with great seats. Friendly and accommodating crew! ."

Pros: "worst experience. Airplane people not so good"

Pros: "The crew was courteous and very nice."
Cons: "The aisles are too narrow. As passengers are boarding and you sit in the aisles you are constantly struck. FAA should investigate with the decreased aisle width and distance between the seats, can the evacuation be completed within required time, in an actual emergency. American Airlines is endangering the lives of passengers. And the cramped conditions are contributing to the hostile actions of some passengers. What does it take to do what is right?"

Cons: "Forced to check my carry on. Took 30min for the bags to come out on the carousel. Which is why i never check my bag."

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."

Cons: "I took the bus from Ohare to Gen Mitchell airport because of delay at Ohare. No crew, again."

Cons: "Lovely flight, but onboarding groups were a nightmare. Given the chaos, they started forcing bags to be checked early."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "3 hour delay"

Pros: "Exit row seating."

Pros: "No individual screens to watch. Get with the times for long flights !"

Cons: "My outbound flight to Manila had an overnight layover in Japan. I asked at the luggage check-in at O'Hare International Airport if they can check it all the way through as I had planned to go outside of the Narita airport for the layover. They told me I couldn't check the luggage all the way through and that I had to pick it up from baggage claim once I land in Narita. From there I had to check-in the luggage again on the same day. When I took my luggage out from baggage claim, I tried to check-in and the counter crew told me I was given wrong information. I had to keep my luggage with me until my flight the following day. On my return flight from Manila and another overnight layover in Narita, the check-in crew at NAIA told me I could check-in my luggage all the way through, and that they also allowed this at my outbound flight to Manila. The check-in crew at O'Hare International Airport gave me wrong information."

Pros: "Flight was straightforward and crew were pleasant."
Cons: "The boarding process was not so good. It was a busy flight and they needed to put luggage underneath asking for volunteer, then after a certain point it was mandatory. I completely appreciate the need for it to happen, but it turned into caos. People everywhere stood waiting. My suggestion would be to have people who need to check baggage stand off to the side and continue boarding those who are ready to go."

Pros: "Ok flight"
Cons: "Not iberia"

Cons: "I was unable to get this flight and rebooked onto a United flight that was denatured 4 hours."

Cons: "Return flight was delayed, gate changes unfriendly and unhelpful flight attendants"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Thought it was funny I didn't get a survey about my disaster trying to leave Boston, only the on time flight getting back. 6 hour delay leaving because of a warning light they didn't catch to begin with. Missed a whole day of vaca. No help once they deplaned us. Horrible flight. First time on American too. Paid for a window seat specific and had no window."

Pros: "Boarded plane on time"
Cons: "Plane looked old and beat up. Sat in plane at jetway for a 45 minute maintenance delay."

Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Endless delays on top of delays."

Pros: "It was efficient."
Cons: "Crew wasn’t too friendly but not unpleasant either."

Cons: "Worst customer service ever."

Pros: "The staff was wonderful"
Cons: "Bummpy ride"

Cons: "High fare"

Cons: "While going inside the flight they told me there is no room for Carryon and gave me ticket to book the luggage. When I went inside the Flight there is lot of room to carryon's, why they have to lie this BS."

Cons: "The crew no food no pillow no blanket"

Pros: "We'll coordinated."

Pros: "I liked the Lufthansa flights using Airbus Aircraft the entertainment system is the best."
Cons: "The entertainment system on the boeing planes is not necessarily the best, the screens are smaller, the selection of movies is not upto date and even Live TV does not work"

Cons: "See above comments."

Pros: "In flight entertainment was great!"

Pros: "The comfy seats"
Cons: "The fact that I had to pay to watch tv. Maybe people should have to pay for movies, but not for watching tv. Flights and till we takeoff can take a while. It would be nice to have some free entertainment. The plane was very hot when we were boarding."

Pros: "Airline personnel were friendly and smiling"

Cons: "Entertainment and food could have been better."

Pros: "Good entertainment for a long flight."
Cons: "A power jack could come handing."

Pros: "Same as above"

Pros: "Loved that it was an empty flight"

Pros: "The service was good"

Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, helpful staff at the ticket counter."
Cons: "Unable to check into both legs of my flight even though Air Canada used United for the first leg."

Cons: "Had to wait to fly out on the plane for about an hour. It was hot inside the plane, needed more air flow"

Cons: "Two hour delay for start of engines.. Not enough chichen and pasta was not good"

Pros: "The flight was a head of schedule and very smooth."
Cons: "It was freezing cold. I was wearing a sweater and was freezing."

Pros: "I have metal leg braces. The staff was helpful getting me from terminal to terminal. They were very helpful."
Cons: "Having a leg brace makes difficult I am blessed I can move a little without them. I had to move a short distance without my brace. No place to put it back on."

Cons: "i missed my flight because my flight left Toronto late"

Pros: "Pilot was very happy and friendly! Very informative throughout flight."
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!"

Pros: "Nothing"
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: "Nice clean plane, very friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "The hour delay."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic despite the entertainment system wasn't working"
Cons: "The entertainment and wifi was nonfunctional for the 8 hr flight."

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: "Great boarding at ORD."
Cons: "My seat"

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."

Cons: "The flight was late by 5 hrs due to mechanical problems. The gate crew was confused about what to do and we ended up with several deboardings and boardings. Food was terrible. The entertainment system did not work."

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: "the japanese speaking flight attendant was exellent! she was very observant to passengers needs. i was also pleasantly surprised by the entertainment system."
Cons: "there was a flight delay due to maintenance, which was inconvenient."

Pros: "service,crue,flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours for departure.I am a member of Team USA and was on my way to OTC for TEAM PRACTICE getting ready for Panamericans in Santo Domingo.Arriving late caused a series of events that cost me a lot of money.I missed the athletes bus by being late and had to take a taxi.I missed the morning and afternoon practice due to the plane delay ,which was so important to me.The first day of training out of the 7 scheduled was waisted.I can not afford to lose time and money in that manner,therefore I will think twice before I risk another flight with Frontier."

Cons: "Arrival seemed uncoordinated and didn't have a dedicated terminal gate."

Pros: "Fast boarding and that's the only good quality. No refreshments or snacks offered without a price tag included. Seats don't recline. Uncomfortable hard seats without any head rests for Support. Small tray tables that won't hold a laptop or drink."
Cons: "It's been 45+ minutes after landing that we have been stuck on the runway unable to dock the plane due to some delays. How Terrible is it that the pilot gets on the radio to say he has no updates or much information to give! People are antsy, children crying and this delays all passengers with other accommodations. Seems like there's no communication or organization from Frontier at all!!'"

Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Being in the plane"

Cons: "Staff was rude was not comfortable seating"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "I arrived 20 mins before departure and from front desk agents would not issue a boarding pass because they said they were already boarding and I wouldn't make it to the gate. Their only solution given to me was to fly to Denver the next day for a layover and fly out to my final destination the next day after that. I was encouraged to find another airline too."

Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "Staff was rude. Seats uncomfortable. Sat on the runway for 30 minutes because we we're a half hour early."

Pros: "Quick boarding and great comfortable ride, awesome flight attendance!"
Cons: "No complimentary snacks nor tv"

Pros: "Offering a direct flight from COS"
Cons: "Outrageous charge for checked bag"

Pros: "Everything except the passenger who was drunk"
Cons: "The fact they allow him to answer the plane when he cannot stand on his feet"

Pros: "Nice crew"

Pros: "Best Frontier experience I've had in a long time. Everything was very good and despite a delay getting the plane to the gate in Chicago, we were able to make up almost all of the time!"

Cons: "Additional costs for selecting a seat and carrying on a bag that was not readily apparent when the flight was originally booked, but added $50+ to the overall cost of the flight. In addition, I experienced a 2+ hour delay on my flight from Chicago to LAX on a Sunday evening, which soured the comfortable end to my weekend travel experience."

Pros: "The crew were pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Delayed 3 times. Didn't get to my destination until 1:30 am. 5 hours later than expected. I don't think I'll fly frontier again."

Pros: "Everyone was very nice, the seats were roomie!"
Cons: "Everything was good!"

Cons: "They didn't tell us they stop issuing tickets 45 minutes before departure."

Pros: "O'hare airport."
Cons: "I was unable to print a boarding pass at one of the many kiosks - it informed me I needed to speak with a Frontier agent. The line for the agents was about 2 hours long, too long to wait to make the flight. After being told by a frontier employee that I'd just want to get in to the line to rebook on a later flight (9 hours later) I proceeded to speak with a momentarily vacant agent who, helpfully, printed and handed me my boarding pass. I arrived at the gate to a closed door and ended up needing to rebook anyway. I decided to just not go on the trip.... wasn't worth having to deal with Frontier 2 times in one day."

Pros: "For less than two tanks of gas, I flew from RDU to Chicago and back. It's a no frills airline, but everyone was nice, and I got where I was going on time. Can't really ask for more than that."

Pros: "Flight was on time, boarding was quick."
Cons: "They charged to pick seating, for carry-ons, and for beverages on the flight. The money I "saved" compared to other airlines, I ended up probably spending more due to the additional charges."

Cons: "Seats are not conftable"

Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Free drinks and Snacks weren't provided"

Pros: "Boarding was easy. On time departure and on time arrival."
Cons: "Short flight so no food or entertainment. Initially crew said would be coming with cart with complimentary beverages and then they said they weren't but you could buy items."

Pros: "On time, friendly and affordable prices"
Cons: "Not very clean, the airplane was messy"

Cons: "It was a terrible experience in my life. A Frontier female worker who was working at O'Hare international airport between 4pm and 5pm was really rude. There was a problem in my barcode so I asked how I could solve the problem. When I first went there, she said "no" and she started to ignore me by not answering. I almost missed the flight. And when I went there twice, the woman hided under the counter after seeing me. I was shocked. The worker at Frontier was never professional and acted like a child. The service was terrible. I would feel okay if she could try to help me not to miss the flight. Instead, she had no willing to help me, and sneered me. I missed the flight so I had to buy a new flight ticket. I'll NEVER use Frontier anymore, and I'll recommend to people not to take Frontier. Workers' service is the representative of the company, and she was terrible."

Pros: "The over all experience"

Pros: "The price of the ticket"
Cons: "The seats were awful, no padding what so ever!!!!"

Cons: "Flight home was 30 minutes late and not one rep apologized or updated passengers. Horrible communication."

Cons: "3 HR unknown delay"

Pros: "Easy boarding easy check in"
Cons: "Nothing that bad, chairs are maybe a bit thin but not terribly uncomfortable"

Cons: "Cabin was pretty dirty and not well managed."

Pros: "price"
Cons: "seats are hard. the time on the ticket was not changed for the time zones so we waited to get to gate"

Pros: "Speedy boarding and fast flight, crew was ok."
Cons: "Charged for one bag, charged for soda and chips on plane."

Pros: "Price of the flight was great, but there are hidden fees."
Cons: "Having to pay for carry on and seats aren't comfortable"

Pros: "The crew was nice and fun"

Cons: "The web site is deceiving in that it makes you think every seat is an upgrade and no regular seats remain. A distinct "no upgrade" choice needs to be present for people to see. It makes one think, how much money Frontier has made from people due to their purposeful website's lack of clarity. This is pretty pathetic."

Pros: "Great prices and way better flight experience than I was expecting after reading other reviews. Seats don't recline but are still comfortable."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no updates were given. Upon arrival, our checked bags took an hour to get to the carousel. Again, no updates at all."

Pros: "No problems went very well"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"

Pros: "Non- Stop flight"
Cons: "6 hour 15 minute delay due to a mechanical problem. I learned that the problem was a broken seatbelt. I later learned that this plane was in the hanger in Chicago since the previous night. I received a $100 voucher for the inconvenience. I have to use the voucher in 90 days. Since I am not a frequent flyer this is no use to me,it should be extended to one year."

Pros: "Easy quick boarding"
Cons: "No entertainment or courtesy drinks on the flight"

Pros: "When it was over."
Cons: "A four hour delay with no explanation. Giving up my seat so a family could sit together, only to be told I might have to get off the flight because they were over sold. Complete lack of professionalism."

Cons: "plane 2 hours late. They charge for everything-even your seat"

Pros: "Boarding was easy due to being able to pay for a seat ahead of time."
Cons: "The flight attendant was cranky and I was shocked when I asked for a bag of peanuts and she said that I would have to pay for them. Not even a stale soda is offered. You have to pay for everything. I will pay for Southwest next time. The flight, after all the extra charges, was more expensive than the Southwest flight. I am very disappointed."

Pros: "Everything from start to finish was great. Professional crew, on-time, painless boarding. I'm a fan!"

Pros: "The flight was on time despite the Chicago snows. The gate staff and onboard flight staff were friendly and professional."

Pros: "Courteous crew."
Cons: "Gate change at last minute. Had to wait for plane to get to gate. 1 hour late. Another 45 minutes waiting for de-iceing but that not their fault. Will not use this airline again."

Cons: "You get what you pay for. I will pay for better service next time. I'm not a tall person I and I felt cramped in the seats. There was no in flight movie. It was a 4 hour flight. With all the add ons my ticket ended up being the same price as the other airlines. I will never fly frontier again."

Pros: "The flights were great. Left on time and arrived early!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "It's so nice to not be bombarded by mircrowave radiation durint the flight, thank you for not having wi-fi onboard, we appreciate it!"
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable"

Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Just remember, you get what you pay for. My flight was $148 from Denver to Chicago on Frontier."

Pros: "It was very punctual"
