Pros: "Flight was on time. Smooth flight."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was below expectations"
Pros: "The crew did the best they could."
Cons: "The 767 is no longer feasible at the load factors that the airline is using for it. Although the seats had been re-furbished, the overhead space is completely unsuited for roll on luggage and so, can't even come close to accommodating the number of bags that are brought on to any flight close to capacity. I would think that it would be beneficial for American to waive the checked baggage fee on any 767 flight to keep from boarding delays due to lack of overhead space. Also, on this flight we had the added problem of a maintenance issue. The flight departure kept getting pushed back in 15 minute increments and there appeared to be a disturbing lack of knowledge of what needed to be done and the time it would take to finish the repair and more on the paperwork to release the plane. We were kept in cramped and uncomfortable circumstances for 3 hours for a 2.5 hour flight.. This was a bad experience."
Pros: "On the 2nd flight it must've been a new airplane because this was the first time my knees weren't jammed into the seat in front of me flying coach. Most comfortable flight I've been on in a decade."
Cons: "Could not read paper when passenger in front reclined seat. No space between rows."

Cons: "Basic Economy tickets are a joke. They are no savings for customers just added restrictions and an overall unenjoyable flight experience as you are being surveillanced by every United associate to ensure you pay for a carry on bag. United and Spirit airlines are now one in the same. United hasn’t suddenly introduced lower fares than before, but rather is reducing the benefits that come with the most basic fares."

Cons: "Everything else. There was no food. The seats did not recline (confirmed by flight attendant), no entertainment, baggage claim took over 45 minutes.

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very bad seats"
Pros: "The crew was awesome. They were very understanding and flexible to sitting arrangements as long as you were within your zone."
Cons: "Didn't like the idea of having to pay for a carryon. Really don't like the idea of having to pay to sit by my husband. I would definitely never fly again unless I'm traveling alone for a one day trip. This airline only seems to cater to the business traveler, not leisure."
Pros: "The flight was on time, and actually arrived about a half hour early. The crew was very attentive. Yeah, you have to pay for everything including carry-on, but if you do your homework then you know what bags you can take without having to pay the fee. If I'm traveling on a budget then I would definitely take Frontier again."

Cons: "there were too many delays and the situation was handled poorly. I do not plan to fly Frontier again in the future."
Cons: "Front desk people were very rude and charge me $45 for a carry on bag"
Cons: "Arriving at O'Hare to take this Frontier Flight.. there was a line a mile long for Frontier Airlines. They created a mess and did not try to assist those of us in line. The line was to check in bags. There were 3 different flights, and it was so unorganized. I realized after an hour that I didn't need to be in this line. I had paid for a carry on, thank goodness otherwise I would have missed this flight, like many did behind me. The flight attendants were rude! I needed to purchase a drink to take some medication, and they made me wait. It was ridiculous."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Terrible seats"
Cons: "Horrible fight."
Pros: "On board crew was very nice and were very entertaining."
Cons: "I've flown frontier before and I have never had a problem. Tried to check in for our flight 30min before it took off as we were running late. The rep who was working the desk (young female, approx. 20yrs old) gave us the worst guest service I have ever received. I did not understand why we could not check in, nor attempt to board our flight, although I understood it is our fault for running late. We did not need to check any bags as we were carrying them on. The woman behind the desk only kept saying you missed your flight and was very disrespectful when our friend tried to talk to her saying "I don't know why your even trying to talk to me, I told you I am done with you." I work in the guest service industry and have never been treated or talked to with such disrespect. I would have understood if she was apologetic and explained to us WHY we could not board or make our flight, compared to being rude and rolling her eyes constantly. I will not be flying frontier again I can avoid it."
Pros: "Boarding in Miami was extremely painless and easy."
Cons: "In Chicago, Monday 4/4, we were running late and the young lady at the bag check was extremely rude to my wife. In so much as to have her co-worker step in and tell her rude co-worker to stop talking. This 15 minute interaction has caused us not to fly Frontier again."
Cons: "The staff does not offer water on a 3 hour flight. Even bringing a carry on for the overhead bin is an extra fee. The website deceives you into paying more for seating."
Pros: "No problems went very well"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"
Pros: "I liked boarding first because I had a carry on. Easier to lug it up into the overhead compartment without the potential of hitting someone in the head. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The seats have no padding. Comfort comes at a price I suppose."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Leg room gets tighter every year lots of extra charges"
Pros: "The cost efficiency of the ticket"
Cons: "The fact that check in at counter was denied for showing up a minute or two at the counter. Wasted finances."
Cons: "Seats didnt recline."
Pros: "The crew was courteous and professional."
Cons: "After adding up all of the hidden fees with the "low cost" of the flight, it all came out to MORE than I would have paid if I had booked a flight with another carrier!. As ad DEPENDENT of an active duty military member, I NEVER have to pay for checked luggage, much less a carry on! Once I got over having to pay and additional $150 for luggage, I board the plane to find extremely uncomfortable seats with half of a tray table, all I could do was laugh. The joke was totally on me!!!! For a flight that was over 3 hours long, it was NOT WORTH ANY OF IT!!! I didn't do the research that I should have, and that is totally on me. Fool me once, but NEVER AGAIN."
Cons: "I was locked out of the first flight due to not having the ability to get a boarding pass via the internet. When I arrived, I used the kiosk to get a boarding pass. Was directed to the ticket agent who stated I was too late to get a boarding pas. I asked if there was room on the flight and was told there was a lot of room. This was 1/2 hour before the doors closed for this flight. The agent told be to go elsewhere and that if I were to get to Miami I needed to book through another airline. I found American had a flight that left half an hour later and booked it at an additional expense of $493.10 FYI: I did have flight insurance and was told it is no good and that basically I'm screwed. I hope someone reads this and compensates me for my added expense."
Pros: "I liked the professionalism of the crew...the boarding quickness, and the cleanliness of the aircraft."
Cons: "What I didn't like, is what I don't like on any airline, and something that will never change...is the crowded cabins...the less comfortable seats that no longer recline, and, the fees for baggage, both checked and carry on's. When posting the seat fees, why not also include what the "average" cost will be, say, for two, with checking one bag, and having two carry-ons? This would make budgeting a couples trip, much easier to figure."
Pros: "I liked how punctual the airline boarded."
Cons: "The seating on the plane was very uncomfortable. The seats do not recline, and being that I was on a 6:30 A.M. flight, not having this feature to rest, made the flight very uncomfortable. I do not plan to use Frontier airlines for an early flight or for a flight that is three or more hours."
Pros: "Cheap tickets."
Cons: "You have to pay almost as much for your bags and seat selection as the tickets. Seats are hard as a rock and really jammed together."
Pros: "Customer service does not exist.i iwill never fly again with you or any of your affiliates. Don't bother w a response unless you're offering me a free flight. Good luck, you will need it if you want to remain in business, Sincerely, Lee Arroyo"
Cons: "Delay of two hours"
Cons: "1- solamente daban agua en un viaje de 5 horas 2-la comodidad terrible los acuentos parecian de bus de carretera ... Bueno el avion decia airbus pienso que esta aerolinia no esta capacitada de ningun modo para hacer viajes mas largo de 1 hora 3- de regreso las vegas miami nunca me ofrecieron ni agua 4-los acientos no se podian ni reclinar tan si quiera mi novio tiene los pies grandes y tuvo que ir doblado todo el tiempo ... Entre mucho mas no recomiendo esta aerolinia es barata pero lo barato sale caro gracias!!!!"
Pros: "My name is Yacouba, On the day of the flight I had to return a rental car in a city that I am not familiar with. Therefore, doing so took a little long than expected. I happened to miss the flight. At the checkin, instead of putting me on another flight, they told me that it was over that I had to rebook a new tickets to my own expense. I thought that was not fair enough from an airline."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled at the last minute forcing me to look for another flight and ending up buying a very, expensive, last minute ticket on United Airline. I could not accept the flight on December 31, 2015 due to many very important meetings. I hope that this will not happen again."
