Pros: "Average"
Cons: "Seat back screens. More space."

Pros: "The crew did very well. The seats could have been a little more comfortable, the lumbar could have been a bit more stiff for lower back support, the arm rest up and down function did not work, and a little more space between rows and seats would have made it more comfortable."
Cons: "The seats could have been a little more comfortable, the lumbar could have been a bit more stiff for lower back support, the arm rest up and down function did not work, and a little more space between rows and seats would have made it more comfortable. The bathroom was too narrow."

Cons: "There was no entertainment (movies) on this long flight. Not an issue for me, but I know other airlines typically do have them."

Pros: "First off Bonnie at the boarding gate was phenomenal , She has an amazing disposition ( especially at 5:00 in the morning ) she greeted each and every customer by name and with a smile ! Our flight was delayed for 2 hours as we sat at the gate while problems were fixed . The Captain made sure he kept us informed as each problem occurred and was fixed . The rest of the flight crew remained patient and attentive , which of course kept all the customers onboard calm and patient as well . My daughter just moved to Seattle and if this is the norm for this airline I will continue to use them for my future visits ! Elizabeth"

Pros: "The plane was new but with no bells let alone whistles."

Cons: "My initial flight was at 0800; I got to the gate before 0800 and was told I couldn't board the flight even though it was still at the gate and was still before the flight time. I had to pay to rebook my flight, spent over $200 in rides to and from airport, had additional parking fees and was several hours late to work. I have many family members who work in flight service so I understand that employees don't like to re-do paperwork; however, being there before the flight time and being denied cost a lot of work time and money. I have always had great experiences with Alaska so this one was quite a disappointment compared to their usual great service. :("

Pros: "Very accommodating staff"

Pros: "The staff was extremely pleasant. Plenty of leg room. Departed on time and arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Flight service kept things light and friendly, efficient. Although the takeoff was late, attempts were made to shorten the flight so that overall delay was minimized on the back end. Thank you!"
Cons: "Can't think of anything."

Cons: "Sparse food."

Pros: "Flight was 30min faster than we expect, awesome :) we arrived 30min earlier :) she was the most beautiful pilot i ever saw. ."
Cons: "Everything was just fine. ."

Pros: "That everything was in time. No delays."

Pros: "I am a tall woman and rarely ride in an airplane without my kneecaps brushing the seat in front of me in coach. Not sure what Alaska Airlines is doing differently, but I had knee-room to spare on my flight to Seattle!"
Cons: "Upon our arrival in Seattle, it seemed that the gate wasn't quite ready for us and we spent a restless few minutes "getting docked" for departure."

Cons: "A child crying the whole trip behind my seat. No effort by mother to stop child from crying"

Pros: "Timeliness"

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

Pros: "the food was really top notch and service was great and friendly"

Pros: "Jeff was our flight attendant in first class. He is an excellent flight attendant. He has an amazing attitude and his manner made us feel as if we had been friends with him for years."
Cons: "Passengers who pay retail for first class on domestic flights should get access to the Delta lounges even without the AE card. Other airlines do this, and we have come to expect it."

Cons: "The boarding process at LAX was awful. I’m sure the horrible shuttle wait and transfer from terminal to terminal is the airport’s fault, but the airline did not do anywhere near enough to inform passengers of what was in store. It was confusing and annoying."

Pros: "Easy and on time and Delta Comfort is always the best. Easy boarding process too!"

Pros: "Quick boarding process"
Cons: "Wifi stopped working halfway"

Pros: "The boarding was fast and very well handled."

Cons: "Great"

Pros: "Great movie selection"

Pros: "Delta did a really good job as always. Cheaper, more comfortable, and a WAY better experience than Alaska Airlines."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Almost everything besides the staff on the plane"

Pros: "Kara was really nice to us."
Cons: "Noisy plane."

Pros: "Movies"

Cons: "horrible boarding management in SJC."

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

Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"

Pros: "Free novies"
Cons: "Food service and better social distancing"

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: "I was moved up to seat 9E from 16E move leg room makes a difference"
Cons: "I had started a movie on the earlier flight but I could not finish it because it was not offered on this flight"

Cons: "Ether bursting process."

Cons: "I will never, ever book with Kayak again"

Cons: "Kept the lights on for too long serving dinner. Forgot to serve the middle section beverages during breakfast."

Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Not eventful."

Pros: "Excellent flight crew, attentive and polite."

Pros: "Amazing entertainment selection, comfortable."

Pros: "Almost empty in economy"
Cons: "I liked everything"

Cons: "For our delay with no information"

Pros: "Food was surprisingly good. Smooth ride could have been just good weather, but it was nice. We got in early!!!"
Cons: "Legroom was ok for me because I'm short. Others may have needed more."

Pros: "The airplale MD 80 are old"

Pros: "Left on time, relatively comfortable considering I had already spent almost 9 hours on a previous flight, landed 30 minutes early"
Cons: "Mixed feelings about the entertainment app, I was pleased that something was available at all, however had the person sitting next to me not mentioned I needed an app to watch the in flight entertainment moments before it would have been too late to use the internet to download it, I would not have been able to use it, unless paying for a limited time package from AA to use the internet to download the app. A better job of advertising of the gogo app is needed more than the booklet in the seat pocket. Also I was only able to watch one movie, after that the system kicked me out saying high usage was making it not work for me. The gate changed a couple of times which had me trawling up and down the H and K concourses, could have done without that after the 9 hour journey I had already taken."

Pros: "Excellent service. Loved the tv screens with the remote. Exclennt flignt"

Cons: "They were late because of bad scheduling and the gate agent was rude"

Cons: "I loved everything"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly with our girls and accommodating with switching around our seats so we could sit together."
Cons: "There weren't any screens, which surprised me since our 3 other flights had them, and we unfortunately didn't have a backup plan. Our kids were disappointed. Also in order to sit with our young children we were only given the option to sit in the very last row that doesn't recline which was difficult seeing as the flight took place in the middle of the night according to our bodies. No actual food was provided despite it being a 6 hour dinner time flight."

Pros: "was a pain checking extra baggage. No one seemed to know what to do.. Apart from that AA was good."

Pros: "Lovely service, but less comfortable plane... nothing terrible though"

Cons: "Indian vegetarian rice uncooked vegetables cold inedible when asked about different food no protein no vegetables Please have better food more options for vegetarian"

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."

Pros: "Extra blanket and pillow. Empty seat to sleep in. Fairly clean interior for the most part."

Cons: "Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead."

Pros: "Boarding and service was nice"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour because the plan was in the hanger! Why? We were all there, didn't American know the plane should be at he gate! No escplanation as to why the plane was not there other than it was in the hanger! Airlines need to let the customers be flexible especially when are!"

Cons: "Three gate changes and 45 minute delay. Same happened two years ago"

Cons: "Could not read paper when passenger in front reclined seat. No space between rows."

Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Had good bathroom access and place to stand in the back galley so you could exercise and stretch as this was a connecting flight and I had been in the air a long time."
Cons: "The older woman stewardess was rude. I tried to give her my papers and she ignored me. So I put them in the pocket and the man next to me saw what happened and she responded to him. Curt. The plane is old and no individual TV. The food choices were very limited. I felt like cattle rather than a relaxing flight. Flying use to be fun and exciting and part of a great trip. Now it is endured to get on a trip."

Pros: "I loved how sweet the crew was. I loved the movie selection."
Cons: "The seat was completely uncomfortable. My feet are swollen and my back hurts still."

Pros: "Timing and transit time was excellent"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Food was horribe and no dedicated tv per seat"

Cons: "They cancelled the flight and put me to fly the next day"

Pros: "I had my first experience in the Admiral's Lounge at O'Hare and enjoyed it very much."
Cons: "My traveling companion's tray table was disgusting when she folded it down for beverage service. She asked for a wet towel and the flight attendant was snarky but went to get one without even looking or asking to see what the problem was. Her entertainment console wasn't working so they reset it but instead it reset mine (two seats over) they did this again and I let them know it was resetting mine. I was told that I was not in the seat they were resetting for ...I inquired if perhaps they should try to reset mine and see if it would, in fact, fix hers..it did. When she slipped off her shoes the carpet was soaking wet. This was a really crummy, crummy flight."

Cons: "The cabin pressure gave me such a migraine, I couldn't think"

Pros: "Crew was A+."
Cons: "Leg space severely lacking."

Pros: "Team worked well together."
Cons: "Could not figure out how to plug in ac for my device. An educational label would help."

Cons: "The plane was just too darn hot and the fans were barely working. All of us were melting."

Cons: "Seats where horrible, the plain was delayed and no one made announcements regarding the reason or any updates, the plain felt cramped"

Pros: "Multiple rounds of drinks/snacks"
Cons: "The crew did not update us about why the WiFi was not working and whether we could expect it to start working again, so I kept checking my computer over the 4 hour flight to see if the WiFi was working and it never did. This was despite multiple passengers inquiring about the WiFi..."

Pros: "The crew was amazing and also the space of my seat"
Cons: "Wish they have a portable TV in my seat"

Cons: "United airlines got many of the luggage pieces wet (it was raining outside). Pieces were also pretty dinged up with black scuff marks and a plastic piece hanging off, though this could have occurred at ORD in between legs."

Pros: "Brand new plane"
Cons: "Didn't get much refreshment"

Pros: "The personal entertainment is always great on United"
Cons: "This was a comedy of errors of United being terrible at their own airport. The first plane essentially had a check engine light that they couldn’t figure out. Finally got us a second plane but then got delayed because they couldn’t get catering to come service the plane. The food on the plane looked like it has sat outside for hours. The oils in the hummus and bruschetta has seperated. Good try United but if you can’t get it right at your base how do you expect to get it right anywhere else."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They delayed our flight 4 times, over 4 hours, told us the flight moved to a gate that didn’t exist, gave us erroneous information about alternate flights, assigned 3 different planes that needed maintenance, and then we waited over 2 hours to talk with a supervisor. I finally had them rebook me on Alaska Airlines (the best)."

Cons: "2 h delay because United didn’t remember international flights can’t go to terminal 1. Really bizarre…"

Pros: "Nothing, horrible experience."
Cons: "RST to ORD to SEA took 16 hours because of non airworthy United planes at RST. First one cancelled, second fixed after several hours but SEA connection missed at ORD. Fortunately AA had a ORD-SEA flight available or I'd still be in Chicago"

Pros: "Flight crew was amazing, They were so kind to my infant son. Huge props to them."
Cons: "Pay for wifi which would cut out. Couldn't access United.com or the United App. Everything cost money even the flight status which just shows our plane crossing the country. Who is going to pay over $5 to watch a plane snail its way over Saskatchewan. Seating was god awful. My knees were jammed into the seat back so badly the person in front of me couldn't recline because it was hitting my knees. Pretzels....unless you wanted to pay artisan prices for microwave food."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything. I will never fly with United again. I will pay more money for another airline which respects people and their money."

Cons: "Delay caused missed flight. Staff did not accomidate efficiently. Ended up on a much later flight and was treated unfairly."

Cons: "The flight staff was rude, the wrong gas was put in the plane causing a delay, I missed my connection because of this where they wrote it was delayed because "it was snowing in Savannah" which was a blatant lie, but made it so they did not have to help me in any way since their delay was "weather" related. They could not get my to my destination until noon the next day which forced me to buy a new flight on Alaska air. My flight on Alaska was absolutely fantastic and I regret ever buying any United flight and will not in the future."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival, friendly staff"
Cons: "Cramped planes with not enough legroom. Poor food options."

Pros: "I would suggest upgrading to a bigger seat for this 4.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Cramped seats"

Pros: "Everything was great except for the food."
Cons: "The hamburger bun was hard as a rock."

Cons: "the wifi was slow to non-existent for the 4 hour flight. they need to bring back the movie screens & headphone jacks !"

Pros: "Both flights"
Cons: "Couldn't figure out why I couldn't accesss movies on my iPhone since I had downloaded the United App prior Also do not like that the free (always nice) entertainment is on a revolving scgedule so couldn't see any movie from the beginning. It would e best if movie streaming was controlled by the viewer beginning to end."

Pros: "The staff were above and beyond on the flight. At the desk pre-boarding, they were not helpful or friendly."
Cons: "Packed in like sardines! My second middle seat on this trip! And those were the only ones in my lifetime (never again!). Overcrowded and I won't book/fly again with that cheap flight (I forget what it's called but it's limited in every way)."

Pros: "Crew was super nice! Did great job boarding us as some of us were running late."
Cons: "Our cabin was so cold that I had three jackets and I was still freezing. No blanket available. No gluten free snacks or meal options except for one snack you can buy. My connecting flight arrived late and there was no time for me to buy anything in airport. So I hadn't eaten in 8 plus hours."

Pros: "Quiet and calm smooth flight"
Cons: "It was cold in cabin at first."

Pros: "Leg room and window seat."
Cons: "Better free tv"

Pros: "Everything. Specially, the United entertainment thing."

Cons: "This flight was also late, and this was after having to spend the night in the airport"

Pros: "It was in time. Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Having a flight. United Airlines employee at the help desk was very helpful and found the quickest available flight."
Cons: "Got my ticket. Had to run through the airport because the layover time was too short (as it has been on MANY of my flights with United). Attendant that took my ticket was actually rude to me about having a ticket on the plane. Boarding was disorganized."

Pros: "The aircraft"
Cons: "Crew delay"

Cons: "Snacks are a joke. Barely enough to fill a teaspoon. Entertainment choices are extremely limited"

Pros: "Friendly captain!"
Cons: "Legs cramped"

Pros: "Roomy exit row seats."
Cons: "Having flown on several other air carriers in the past two years, United's inflight entertainment is poor. Don't make us use our own devices - that's just cheap on your part."

Pros: "Not much, except maybe the price."
Cons: "Rude ground staff (air staff were nice). Several delays and not organized at all."

Pros: "Upgraded me to a bulkhead seat to accommodate my 6ft 4 inch frame!"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Airport not crowded. Efficient boarding!"

Cons: "Again, upgraded to first to be more comfortable now that i had food posioning, the seats were so hard my back and butt. Not doing that again."

Cons: "Felt a little cramped. Baby was crying the majority of the 4 hour flight."

Cons: "The difference in entertainment options between different United flights is frustrating. Unlike some flights, which offer a bunch of free movies and shows you can watch on your phone or tablet, this flight offered a small selection of movies I could pay $8 for access to, which started at pre-determined times so you might pay for them and not even be able to catch the movie from the beginning. My original flight offered an outlet to charge my phone and a fairly large selection of free movies, so I watched 3 movies and the time went by quickly. My return flight did have an outlet, but I didn't want to pay for a bad selection of movies that I couldn't pause or start from the beginning, so it felt like a much longer flight."

Pros: "I arrived"
Cons: "Tsa yelled and embarrassed me for no reason, expensive food, janky airplane, no ammenities"

Pros: "Prebording was helpful being disabled and having a service dog, crew was very helpful, and it was much more comfortable having the extra legroom as requested in advance and having it honored."
Cons: "I did not enjoy having to pay for even the most basic entertainment."

Pros: "On a 4+ hour flight, food and entertainment should be free like the "old days""
Cons: "United, should take the LEAD, and bring back the glory days of air travel. It should not be all about squeezing every cent out of ticket prices. Respect air travel!!!"

Pros: "Streaming in-flight entertainment options are great (using the United app) and the under-seat power outlets are life-savers. Temperature on the trip was nice and the Economy seats were comfortable enough."

Cons: "delayed"

Cons: "Having to pay for Internet sucks"

Pros: "Never took flight"
Cons: "Never took flight"

Pros: "Flight crew very friendly"
Cons: "Flight delay"

Pros: "Everything listed above is accurate of the 1st flight. I had just as much leg room on the 2nd flight as the first with it being even more crowded. Doing well!"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind that I would be willing to say anything about."

Cons: "Flight was delayed over and over again"

Pros: "Friendly staff"

Cons: "Not sure why there even is a flight staff. Airline doesn't even offer snacks. Airline did one round of "beverages" on a 4+ hour flight. The in cabin crew hangs out in the front just chatting with each other (because they presumably have nothing else to do). $40 to put a bag overhead. Seats don't recline at all."

Pros: "Solid. Everything "worked". On time, no problems with luggage. Good value"
Cons: "Check In not very efficient"

Pros: "The crew were never short or rude at least."
Cons: "Poor handling of delay. Announced a maintenance problem, due to bird strike, which itself is understandable and I certainly wouldn't want to have that rushed, but at one point they said it would only be another 10 min. Ended up being something like a 5hour delay. They wouldn't just tell us it was a significant delay, but instead kept announcing "any minute now." Offered food vouchers eventually, but many of the few places we could use it were closed by then. Stranded in the airport."

Cons: "I have not yet had a good experience on Frontier Airlines, though my personality keeps urging me to give them chance after chance to prove it was "just that one time". The seats are some of the most uncomfortable pieces of furniture I've ever had to force myself to sit in for four hours. To be generous, they are plastic chairs with a thin foam/leather cover over the top that don't recline and have tiny armrests and tiny tray tables. The crew has never gone out of their way to assist me without an eye roll. Every flight I've been on has gum and other unidentifiable piles mashed into the carpet. The planes never seem to handle turbulence well. I, like many other reviewers, was taken by surprise when charged for my carry-on bag. Obviously, there is no wi-fi or other entertainment option, because the airline is archaic. The money that you might think you're initially saving by booking on this budget airline is not worth it. Spend the extra $50-$75 and fly through someone else."

Pros: "The staff and crew were handling the situation well given the hand they were dealt."
Cons: "6 hour delay before they found replacement airplane, waiting till almost all food was closed before issuing meal vouchers, chairs do not recline at all, no head rest padding."

Pros: "The quick flight and getting there early and baggage was waiting when we got there."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable, no free beverages even water."

Pros: "The plane didn't crash"
Cons: "I've never been on a flight that charges for carry on items or the basic beverage service. Also the flight crew should realize that just because we refuse to pay $1.99 for a soft drink doesn't mean we aren't thirsty. Water should've been offered more than one time. The seats are extremely uncomfortable and no option to recline doesn't make them better. Overall cheap price for a cheap airline I guess. I learned my lesson and won't be flying with you again."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I haven't flown frontier for about 7 years. I used to love the airline but didn't realize they had changed their model. I was so surprised we had to pay for EVERYTHING even a carry on bag. The seats were uncomfortable and didn't recline. There wasn't a real tray table to do work, you can't get any sort of beverage without paying. I felt nickeled and dimed the entire time. The crew were not very friendly. Also, I was given a $10 voucher by frontier and I asked 3 different employees how to use the voucher and no one knew. Additionally, the frontier website and check in process is not intuitive and very lengthy and frustrating. I would gladly pay more to fly ANY other airline but frontier in the future."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The added fees are ridiculous. First we are charged for our seats upon check in. Ugh. Then, we were able to bring our small roller luggage at no extra charge from Seattle to Chicago. However, in Chicago, we were told to pay $60 (PER BAG!!!) to bring them with us, which I think is exploitation because looking back, i wonder if they could have gone underneath in storage at no charge. Also, the inconsistency of fees was VERY frustrating. Plus, $60 for a bag is absurd, what a completely ridiculous number. The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. This is the most economy airline I've ever flown, and it was horrendous. I'm surprised these even passed code, the tops felt like metal bars and barely any padding. I felt unsafe in the case there were to be an emergency. I will never fly Frontier again, and I will always warn people about flying this carrier. Nothing good to say."

Cons: "Being charged for a carry on."

Cons: "Trip had over 8 hours of delays."

Pros: "Price was good. Can't complain with that fare. Airplane was efficient, the seats were small to allow slightly more space. Boarding was fast and efficient. Crew was very competent, if not the friendliest."
Cons: "Quality of cabin experience. Loudspeaker was too loud. Airline aggressively charges for extras like carry on bags, food and even seat selection."

Pros: "I actually like that you cannot lean your seat back. It's too imposing on the passenger behind you."
Cons: "They charge extra for everything. Every seat has an extra charge except for the middle seats in the very back row. Once you've paid for your seat and for your carry-on bag(!), you've paid as much as you would have flying with Alaska, American, United, etc. There was no entertainment whatsoever on a 5 hour flight (not even for purchase) and no snack provide either. I believe there was food for purchase but I didn't even look at it. Also, they do not support TSA pre-check. This would have been something the representative I called should have informed me of but instead she told me she had updated my records. So in addition to the fee gouging, their staff are either uninformed or outright dishonest."

Pros: "Crew on the plane was super nice and cared for us."
Cons: "Check in process was HORRIBLE. I initially showed my military I.D in order to check into my flight. All U.S Navy service members that are attached to a ship have a sticker on their I.D that states their ship and department. The lady that was assisting me accused me for having a fraud military I.D as the sticker ONLY hides what branch I serve in. She accused me for hiding information on my I.D as she tried taking the sticker off as I need that sticker to get on and off my ship. I was also accused for not looking like my military I.D picture. That picture was taken during boot camp as my head was completly shaved and I had no facial hair. I obviously grew out my hair and had facial hair as I was in a leave status. I was not required to shave for the duration of my leave. She also asked why I was not in uniform. The lady assisting me failed to realized that active duty members do NOT have to be in uniform every second of their waking lives. She did not believe I was in the U.S Navy and was super disrespectful. I just gave her my Illinois I.D to avoid any other trouble. I'm not a confrontational person so I just tried to avoid creating a scene in front of everyone. She was not wearing a name tag so I called frontier to make a formal complaint. I will not be flying with frontier anymore. Thank you."

Cons: "3 hour delay! Uncomfortable seats that don't even recline a little. I will never fly frontier again."

Pros: "The flight was cheap and was one way."
Cons: "3hr + delay, no device charging, seats are uncomfortable."

Cons: "Very very poor service"

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The seats don't recline, the boarding passes didn't scan anywhere we tried to scan into."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Rude boarding staff. Extremely delayed flight that wasn't reimbursed fully or gave options to choose another flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The time delay, the rudeness by the checkin desk workers."

Pros: "There was nothing I liked about my experience."
Cons: "We had to pay an additional $40 each for a carry on and then our flight was over 4 hours delayed. They gave some people a food voucher for the airport with only 15 minutes to use it before everywhere closed. Not once did they apologize. The seats were plastic uncomfortable and did not recline and NO leg room. We had to fight just to get a glass of water on the plane. Everything was purchase only. I will never fly Frontier again."

Cons: "We were delayed three times until we were forced to arrive in Seattle about 1:20am--when no public transportation is available. Seats are hard, narrow and have small, flimsy armrests. Overall, this was a terrible experience."

Cons: "Both flights were delayed for 3 hours during my round trip. The service was great, but it was inconvenient to be late on both sides. Not upset, just a little sleepy!"

Cons: "Forgot about luggage charges, seat selection charge and the seats don't recline - pretty horrible for a red eye."

Cons: "I was very upset to learn that we had to pay for luggage when that was not mention ed on Kayak"

Pros: "I didn't like anything about frontier. It was horrible."
Cons: "I did not like the seats as they were uncomfortable and did not recline. The tray tables were tiny. The price is deceptive as you have to pay for checked bag, carry on, and a decent seat. The inflight refreshments were not complimentary. Everything had an additional price!"

Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "4 hour delay"

Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable. The tray table was way too small. A 40 minute wait for luggage is unacceptable. This was my first and last flight with this airline. The cheaper ticket ended up costing as much as a decent airline by the time all the "extras" were added in."

Cons: "I did not like that I had to pay an extra fee for my check-in luggage. There were screaming kids the entire flight. Volume of passengers was not pleasant."

Cons: "delays with NO feedback"

Cons: "The online check in was a bit complicated and not really clear if we could use e boarding pass."

Pros: "Crew were courteous"
Cons: "Seattle to Chicago: Had to wait "two hours' before flight to check our baggage in. Made getting to the air port "3 hours early" as recommended by their email alert to avoid long TSA lines - which weren't - made us waiting in the airport way too long Chicago to Seattle: Same "3 hours prior" alert (the lines again were not long) made getting to and waiting in the airport way too long. Plane was delayed getting to gate and/or they brought a "new" plane in - and had to wait to get it "cleaned up" since the agent at the desk was the only one on duty, she said. Plane left late, sat on taxiway and returned with a "sensor warning" that needed looked at. Left way late in the end."

Pros: "I got one free drink for the delay"

Pros: "We made it."
Cons: "2nd flight in two weeks delayed nearly 4 hours. Mechanical issue, delayed fuel truck, etc."

Cons: "Behind, plane troubles, and very uncomfortable seats. Not worth the money"

Cons: "No TSA Pre-check even with my Global Entry card $45 fee for carry-on luggage (each way) $16 seat selection charge (up to $55 per seat per ticket) No complimentary soda / crackers (only water) No entertainment onboard Told that the ticket I purchased was a 'low fare' ticket which didn't include ANY luggage, not even carry-on Charging more for carry-on luggage than check-in luggage (there is no labor on the airline side for carry-on, but they made it more expensive for the Customer because they'll generate more revenue)"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours. The plane came in and sat at the gate the whole time, and no updates or explanation was given by the ground staff as to the cause of delay or the expected time of take off."

Cons: "The seats are amazingly uncomfortable. Your ticket price is good , until you realize you pay extra for absolutely everything."

Cons: "We were charged $180 in baggage fees at check in. Had we been able to compare that added cost, we might not have picked these flights on Frontier. When we complained, Frontier placed the blame squarely on KAYAK, and told us to go directly through their site next time."

Pros: "Fare"
Cons: "Delays! Delays! Delays! Carry on bag fees Seat assignment charges Lack of professionalism - pilot and some flight attendants"

Cons: "They nickle and dime you to death. They even charge you for soda!"

Pros: "The fellow that checked us in and helped us with checking the bags was a nice person."
Cons: "Having to pay extra for all bags -- Having an hour delay because the pilot didn't arrive on time very uncomfortable seats. Don't expect to ever fly Frontier again!"

Pros: "Crew was nice. coyote is cute."
Cons: "Not very comfy w/o recline. Long time on Tarmac waiting for pilot to land an earlier flight."

Pros: "In spite of the apparently hard-and-fast rule about exit row seats costing extra, a friendly and intelligent young man at the desk at the boarding gate made an exception for me. I am 6'4' tall and a retired firefighter, first responder, ambulance driver, and former EMT. Having a person well-trained for emergencies located in an exit row seat is a potential benefit for the airline as well as for a tall passenger. Your man made a good decision and I appreciated it greatly."
Cons: "I don't favor the large surcharge for exit row seats, especially after the plane is loaded and there are such seats remaining empty. I would suggest dropping the price at that point to $10 or $20 to fill the seats.At least you would make some extra $ instead of zero if no one feels they can afford the seat upgrade. You will gain many more loyal flyers."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over three hours. At destination (Seattle) the Link Rail system was closed and I had to pay $50 for taxi service. This was an unplanned expense. I can forgive issues with planes and reasonable delays but there was little or no concern about leaving passengers stranded at the airport. The $50 discount on a next flight with Frontier (which won't happen) is of little use. I would have appreciated some help with getting to my destination and room accommodations. Do you know how hard it is to make arrangements at 2:30am at the Seattle Airport. No food, no ride, and had to get someone to let me into my room early in the morning."

Pros: "The flight itself was relatively inexpensive."
Cons: "Return flight was delayed 2 hours. Paid $45.00 for carry-on, both ways. Flight attendants were ride to some passengers. Noticed baggage handler, through the airport window, kicking luggage. Arrives at the airport at 8:30 PM, and was greeted by two very nice desk clerks. When my flight finally arrived at 2:00AM, the obviously exhausted desk clerks arrived at the gate to board passengers onto the airplane. It appeared to me that they were severely understaffed. Upon arriving at my destination, we were delayed an additional 20 minutes while the airplane in the gate was delayed, due to mechanical problems. While just one of these issues is not necessarily a problem, collectively they were maddening. I will NEVER fly Fronteir again."

Pros: "Mediorce, that's good way to to sum up my feelings about Frontier. My flight to Seattle was fine but my flight to Chicago was just awful! The staff was gossiping about passengers and they were rude. I couldn't believe the unprofessionalism of that crew. The Chicago to Seattle crew was fine, pleasant even. But I will never again fly Frontier."
Cons: "Frontier nickle and dimes you. They only allow on a personal item and I was charged $35 for a tiny suitcase when there was ample space in the overhead bins. Such a rip off. They also don't do ANY beverage service."

Cons: "had to pay for 3 bags they were all small carry ons. My special needs daughter and her two children had no money so they called me crying her mother so I had to charge 120.00 to my card They said landing was the worst. Now they don't want to fly home on your airlines but they have no choice My name is Juliana Parker jmp511@comcast.net phone 425-433-8882"
