Pros: "Seats are comfortable and didn’t mind staying with the back upright. Flight attendants veery friendly and boarding was fast and easy."

Pros: "Video access"
Cons: "Too hot, too crowded"
Cons: "Didn’t get our beverage and snack till we were almost ready to land at Charlotte"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."

Pros: "Great experience. Left on time and landed early. Comfortable and great crew"
Cons: "Wish there were more snack options"
Cons: "Aiirlines always want to try and chargel extra money for everything. If you purchase tickets back in February and still can't sit with your significant other that's a problem to me."

Pros: "The people was relaxed and the flight attendant was polite and professional.. everything was on time"
Cons: "Nothing at all great service"

Cons: "Bumpy ride. Nobody's fault."
Pros: "Really nice staff all the way through from gate agent to flight attendants. Flight left on time and landed early. Night and day vs American"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was perfect."
Pros: "Flight crew is helpful. We travelled with my 82 year old mother who needed some assistance, especially for our short connection times, and they made sure she and our whole group made it to the connections on time."
Pros: "I liked booking/purchasing my ticket on Kayak on June 3rd."
Cons: "I did not like arriving for my 4:50 PM EST flight at 4:10 PM EST and being told there is no way I can make my flight. The crew at CVG’s Delta desk is incredibly uninspiring and not helpful at all. A lot can be done in 40 minutes and they made little to no effort helping me make my flight or to get me on another flight on 6/13 that would get me home to Colorado Springs the same day."
Pros: "Like the smaller contingent of passengers. Boerding a lot quicker and simpler. Captain gave us some interesting details about plane and its capabilities."
Cons: "Exit row seats were were very uncomfortable, very little padding, although there was plenty of legroom. No snacks or entertainment. WiFi did not work."
Cons: "I was the very first person in line for Zone 3, and they automatically told me I had to gate check my bag, which would mean adding at least 20 minutes when I landed. I took it on the plane anyway; and there was PLENTY of space in the overhead compartments. This feels like I’m being treated as a second class citizen because I was unwilling to be nickel and dimed for seat or boarding upgrades. It’s infuriating"
Pros: "It was great because I was able to get an aisle seat."
Cons: "Like it all"
Pros: "CVG isn't a huge airport, but it has a good amount of things to keep you entertained/well fed."
Cons: "CVG security line isn't terrible, but there seemingly is ALWAYS a decent wait. When a flight is full, like this one, it's never very comfortable – even a short flight."
Pros: "Delta personnel were very pleasant/friendly"
Cons: "The attendants at the delta counter in the airport were very rude and told us we were nit elite member when in Lima and Mexico was at the contrary"
Cons: "My return portion of my flight was canceled and had to purchase a new ticket. I would like a full refund of my expenses."
Pros: "Friendly crew with modern plane"
Cons: "Why am I paying for first class for just snacks I can buy in an airport shop?"
Cons: "Flight was late by almost 2 hours!!!"
Cons: "I understand gate changes happen, but I got 4 texts switching the gates back and forth. Is that necessary?"
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Cons: "I paid for the upgrade to Delta Comfort Plus for an aisle seat & for some reason they reassigned our seats and I got Putin a middle seat. It was not what I paid for and it was very uncomfortable. If people pay to upgrade to specific seats we should. It be reassigned to whatever seat they want to put us in."
Cons: "I told you my daughter's birthdate, you know her age, don't require me to call you and wait on hold for 30+ minutes for her to not be seated by herself."
Pros: "Flying to Portland was trouble free."
Cons: "No complaints here"
Cons: "The aircraft was older and visibly dirty in the corners. The baggage took well over the guaranteed 20 mins."
Pros: "Really surprised to see that Deltas new 737's had free in seat entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was a little awkward."
Cons: "i checked my bag and did not have any carry-on. Generally, i feel i should be offered boarding before all the masses who try to carry on bags that are too large and need to be gate-checked....they clog up the ramp and aisles once on the plane (this is a general complaint that is not directed at Delta specifically...applies to all airlines)"
Pros: "The gate agents were courteous and efficient. The flight crew was very attentive. The pilots were clear in their announcements. Even though we were held up by sheer plane/ground traffic, we managed to still get back home early!"
Cons: "At one point on the initial flight, the cabin got so cold that I had to put on a jacket."
Cons: "Due to last minute and absurd changes made to my itinerary by Delta without my knowledge, I was not on this flight."
Pros: "Boarding was not a problem at all! ."
Cons: "The pilot was very rough maneuvering the aircraft. Starting from take off the pilot took off from a halt and accelerated so fast that I believe takeoff took 3sec or less. Also taxi into the airport about to land His maneuvering was Preety rough compared to the other two delta pilots that were perfect. There wasnt any food offered."
Cons: "Seating is too crowded"
Pros: "Tail winds provided an early arrival. When my flight was rebooked due to a delay on my first booking I was upgraded to Permium booking and drinks were complementary on the flight from Atlanta to Philadelphia."
Pros: "The checkin agents did their best. Flight attendantw very helpful when overhead bins were full."
Cons: "No food/beverage service. Agent at gate desk visibly tired and short with customers, but not rude."
Pros: "Quick hop from Cincinnati to DC - efficient, nice flight."
Pros: "The cookies!!!"
Cons: "To cold on plane"
Pros: "The nice couple sitting next to me."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, carry on filled up fast, and there was nothing special about the plane or service."
Cons: "no food. no entertainment"
Pros: "The teeny bag of free pretzels"
Cons: "Very bumpy flight. No movie"
Pros: "Staff through the entire process were great. Flight on time and even landed early. I didn't have the in flight snack but the options for drinks were good. The only snack was pretzels but folks with gluten allergies can't have those. I'll admit I didn't ask for an alternative."
Cons: "My luggage was overweight because it's such a long trip and I wouldn't have been able to manage two checked bags by myself. I am okay with the $25 checked back fee but $100 for 19 extra lbs is a little ridiculous."
Pros: "Peaceful and smooth"
Pros: "Liked we actually made it."
Cons: "Another delayed American Airlines flight where the temperature in the cabin was as the overall apathy of the employees."
Cons: "We landed early and had to wait 45 min on the runway."

Pros: "Flight was delayed so much that I would miss my connection so I never went and am on a new flight today on a different airline"
Cons: "First plane's engine caught on fire."
Pros: "It was a short smooth ride, no delays and the crew was nice. The snack was fine."
Cons: "I wish they offered drinks more. Like a bottle of water along with something else to drink."
Cons: "Flight left late, once in Charlotte sat on taomac 20 min, waited 20 min for our forced to check carry on and missed our connecting flight. They gave away our seats and were not helpful. Eventually wander to a customer service desk. Anitbef ling wait. Finally got a flight out."
Pros: "It was okay"
Cons: "We loaded late and than sat in the plane awhile before we left. No explanation was given. Once we arrived in Charlie we sat on the tarmac for 20 min. No explanation. Than we waited 20 min fir our carry on luggage to arrive. We were told we had to check it. By the time we arrived at our gate they had given outlet seats away. They were not very polity ir helpful."
Pros: "I like that American offers free movies thru their app but there was a glitch and I couldn't get it to work!"
Cons: "Couldn't get the entertainment app to work"
Pros: "the crew and the people at the desk for boarding were great. the app helped me keep up with the changes"
Cons: "delays and changing gates"
Pros: "Both American flights (on Airbus 321, I think) I've taken in the past two weeks had comfortable seating with great legroom. My knees were not knocking the seat in front of me! Seat width also comfortable. Not sure how I lucked up on both flights!"
Pros: "They delayed 5 times and we're never honest about departure time. Then lost my luggage. They told me that I will need to go back.to the airport to pick up the luggage which is unacceptable."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Cabin was clean. Flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "Their snacks were merely a cookie which was okay, but not what I would have wanted."

Pros: "Extra blanket and pillow. Empty seat to sleep in. Fairly clean interior for the most part."
Cons: "The plane supposedly was running out of fuel, which I've never heard of such thing. So we had to go down 20mns before reaching Charlotte to a nearby airport to get fueled up and then went back in the air. The whole ordeal made me miss my connection flight to Barcelona! And I wasn't able to get on a flight until the next day. To make matters worse I had to flight back to New York to catch the flight to Barcelona! Unbelievable. I was beyond disappointed. I chose American Airlines for a reason, a good one at that. Yet this happened."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. By the time groups 5&6 boarded the first groups had not finished and there were no longer any lines to control the crowd, just people trying to get on board to assure overhead cabin space."
Pros: "Timely and prepared flight."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and got lots to eat. Flight was pretty much on time."
Pros: "Flights attendants were super friendly and the plane was very clean"
Cons: "seats are uncomfortable"
Cons: "The first class flight attendants were VERY RUDE to the passengers getting on the plane, especially the male flight attendant. While serving drinks, instead of saying things like "pardon me", they would say "move" (as was said directly to me) and get out of the way" (as I herd him say to another passinger). Very disrespectful way to treat a person, let alone a paying customer! Btw...I am a middle class 5' 11" tall college educated male."

Pros: "* on time * courteous staff"

Cons: "Seats on smaller planes were very tight!!! It's not just your butt in the seat but where do you put your elbows?!?!?!?"
Cons: "The plane was 2 hours late . It was in the hsngar. They said they were fixing the plane. It was an old plane. No Screen anywhere . It was 5.5 flight across country. Only pretzels. I will try not to fly American again."
Cons: "I paid $75.00 to take an earlier flight and Americans crew error nullified this. I feel ripped off."
Pros: "Food was better than expected - not a fan of airline food, but this was not so bad."
Cons: "Finnair was thru American Airlines. American had only a couple of check in windows open when we got to the Frankfurt airport - nowhere near enough to handle the number of people checking in."
Pros: "Polite and professional:-)"
Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a smooth flight, my row was totally empty, which enabled me to pass out like a little baby. I forgot that I was on an airplane and not an air mattress. Kudos to the pilot!"

Pros: "I liked that I landed in time to get to my next flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had a child kicking my seat back the whole flight and that the in flight movie that I purchased skipped more than it played."
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "The AA employee at the counter in Batoj Rouge informed me that I would miss my connection at Charlotte Airport due to a delayed in the incoming flight. Hebgave me the option to flight the next day or flight the same day, and after a 2 hour delay flight to Charlotte where I would be provided a hotel room and a meal for the night. I asked several times if that information was confirmed and he repeatedly said yes. At my arrival at Charlotte Airport (near midnight) every AA employee said that they did NOT have any more hotels. It was obvious that everything was a staged lie since over 100 people had to spend the night in one of the the terminals where we were provided a pillow and a blanket. I am terribly disappointed for the lack of transparency in AA. I was told my some friends that they also have had experiences like that at the same Charlotte Airport. You have damage once again your reputation and from no own in will expect THE WORST from AA."
Pros: "Arrived home safely"
Cons: "Arrived very early due to logistics and our flight was not leaving for 9 hrs and the AA Representative would only put us on a earlier flight if we paid a large fee, so we waited then the original flight was delayed 2 hours and we nearly missed our connection in another city, it all could have been avoided if a little flexability and care were involved to put us on a earlier flight"

Pros: "Easy to get bags checked and get my boarding pass. Online check-in was helpful, and the electronic boarding pass is convenient."
Cons: "Every source told me my bags were coming on belt E, but they somehow ended up on C."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and welcoming. I enjoy having more choices then just pretzels and peanuts for a snack."
Cons: "The boarding process seems like it is hectic and not very well planned. A lot of people still standing in line that are not actually boarding yet because they are not in the correct group. This made it hard to actually board and know where the line was. Once on the plane the seats just seemed very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Staff were efficient and helpful."
Cons: "I was told at 7;15 am that the flight was delayed until 11:30. Unfortunately, I was already at the airport as my original flight was at 9:00. Luckily, there was another flight that would get me to my final destination at the same time as what I booked."
Pros: "The humor of the flight attendants"
Cons: "The fact that my flight was so incredibly delayed because a child vomited during landing causing my flight to board 40 minutes late"

Finally had to switch to Delta and got to Chicago at 1AM EST, missed the wedding."
Pros: "Most things"
Cons: "Some things"
Cons: "Late arriving crew. Screw up because the ground crew forgot to throw a switch. So we left even later. Got to Charlotte and United had forgotten to request a gate."
Cons: "We waited all evening for a flight that kept being changed and then finally canceled. We were given several reasons from bad weather, mechanical problems, and crew out of hours. We should hv been transferred to another plane sooner without having to stay overnight with no change of clothes or personal items."

Pros: "Price and comfortable new plane"
Cons: "Male stewardess was very unpleasant/unprofessional No food or snack or water offered to my son or I"
Cons: "First, when I got to the booth AFTER checking in, they told me that there isn't any more seats on the flight. The attendant proceeded to tell me "just go to JFK and see what happens" obviously I was furious. United will be lucky if I ever fly on them again"
Pros: "The flight was fine nothing to rave about or complain about."
Cons: "The cargo door did jam on the return flight so we had to wait at least 30 minutes to get our bags. Not sure if someone didn't do what they were supposed to do when securing luggage. It took maintenance some time and several calls before they came to assist."
Pros: "There is absolutely nothing that I liked about this experience!"
Cons: "They had to reroute my flight four times! Then when they finally gave me a final flight I didn't get the premier seating that I paid for! Even if it's the only flight available the next time I fly I will not book with United!"

Cons: "We were grounded for over an hour, no fault of United. Spent a half hour on the runway, it would've been nice to be told that before taking off."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't care for is I sat beside a man that was 63 and weighed about 275 pounds and I had absolutely no room to sit. Also I couldn't buy any snacks on the plane because it only took cards ."
Pros: "I requested a wheelchair. My foot is in a boot and I am not suppose to walk any distance on it. I was told there were only 2 wheelchairs and that they were for 2 elderly passengers. I passed 8 more wheelchairs that were not being used. Very rude airport employees. I had to use an escalator and almost fell."
Pros: "Nothing. As the flight never departed due to "weather""
Pros: "The crew made the best of the situation, seemed friendly."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Really tight seats"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours, putting me home at 4:00 am, instead of my planned 12:30 am. At that point, I wish I had booked a flight for Sunday. I was stuck in the ohare airport for hours while stores and restaurants were closed, without wifi, and tired. Then I had to wait for my paid checked bag once I landed in Charlotte."
Pros: "First Class"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "We waited in the plane for two hours before taking off to de ice trucks."
Cons: "3 lbs over on luggage wasn’t an issue leaving but return made big deal and said she gets audited and can be a couple of lbs overweight. Wanted $75. So we threw away some liquids and dispersed some closed into carryons. Really stupid. Seats super small uncomfortable always have their hand out for payment for everything. Not eager to fly frontier ever again."
Pros: "friendly attendants"
Cons: "Only rough glitch was the pre flight wait at TSA, even though I was supposed to haver TSA precheck"
Cons: "Arrived 25 minutes prior to the flight, after checking in to hours before the flight. No electronic ticket available and no printers available at frontier ticket counter. No front tier personnel available. No front tier electronic kiosk to print tickets. Missed my flight because I could not get through security. Frontier need to upgrade their customer service at Providence TE Green Airport. It reads poorly and I will not fly frontier again"
Cons: "being nickle and dimed for every little convenience, checked bag, carry on bag, seat selection, etc. What I though was a good deal ticket turned out to be way more expensive than I imagined."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and comforting, as this was my first time ever flying and I was terrified."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant enough."
Cons: "Both of my flights were delayed. We had to get off the plane on both ends before we were allowed to reboard. I missed a long awaited dinner reservation with my husband at one end and was several hours late arriving at my final destination. Mechanical issues on both planes doesn't inspire a lot of confidence. My family and I will not fly Frontier again."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful!"
Cons: "I thought it was kind of cheap that your company doesn't offer complimentary beverages or food anymore. I also think that the tray tables in my plane specifically seemed a lot smaller than I remember and that seemed kind of cheap to me."
Pros: "Flight was reasonably priced. Flight options were great"
Cons: "Rates are misleading. Once you add in the higher baggage fee, the seat fees (no free seats), the flight is priced the same if not higher than other airlines but the real difference is in all of this is customer service. The lead flight attendant on the my flight was extremely rude and unresponsive. My mother had a wheelchair assist her to the gate for our departing flight in Orlando. This was arranged by the ticket counter. Apparently, Frontier screwed up and did not arrange for a wheelchair to meet us at the gate in Charlotte. When we mentioned this to the lead flight attendant, he said we would need to go and find one ourselves. I asked if he could call the gate and asked them to bring one so I wouldn't have to leave my elderly mother, he said, "no". I asked again and explained that I didn't want to leave my mother. This time he rolled his eyes at me and said, it wasn't his problem. Really? This is precisely the reason I will not take Frontier again. Please look into training your people better or your hiring process. Cheap flight do not address this issue."
Cons: "I don't like the way price of the ticket got dropped"
Cons: "Seats are tiny, all in flight services are for charge."
Cons: "There were several delays."
Cons: "Had to pay 40 to check a bag. Will be hit again on way home. Seems to be a hidden fee that I will account for in the future and do the math and not fly Frontier. Only one person checking people. No kiosks. Delays on both flights. Overall terrible experience. Took 11 hours to get from Cincinnati to Salt Lake City."
Pros: "Frontier encourages you to check your bag by offering a lower fee for checking than carrying the bag onto the plane This made getting into and out of the plane so much quicker The seats were comfortable enough and I had my own food and beverages so did not need to purchase any."
Cons: "My reasonable priced ticket went up $104 by the time I paid to check my bag and pick a seat. I would rather gate check my bag and get it when I exit the plane because it took over an hour for it to come to baggage claim."
Cons: "I selected the wrong flight and called to cancel. They charged me $99 and I didn't get to go on vacation."
Pros: "Very easy flight with excellent pilot and crew. Smoothest flight I've had in years."
Cons: "Didn't get my luggage to Atlanta. They didn't put it on the plane. Had to send it to me the next day."
Cons: "Having to pay all the extra fees for a checked bag and carry on luggage."
Cons: "no amenities"
Pros: "Awesome experience my mother had to have assistance and they were very accommodating"
Cons: "my mother had to have assistance and they were very accommodating"
Cons: "Longest security line I have ever seen and I travel in a lot of countries all over the world that have outrageous security lines. Had an hour and a half to get through security and still missed the flight. Nothing could be done because the next flight was in 3 days."
Pros: "The staff was very kind and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Around the time we should have been starting our descent into Denver, the pilot came overhead and said we had been re-routed an hour north due to storms and would land in about another hour. It would have been nice if they had notified us of the change as it happened. Also, when I bought my ticket online, I was left thinking I had to purchase a carry-on despite the fact that it would fit under the seat in front of me. As it turnes out, I didn't have to and was out that money. I was also caught by surprise by having to pay extra for my seat selection."
Pros: "The plane was clean, the flight crew was very polite and helpful... flight was on time leaving and early on arrival."
Cons: "Extra fees for everything. Additional fee to book your seat. Additional fee for luggage... even carry on."
Pros: "the airplane was the most comfortable I've been on for quite a while...also the crew was extremely friendly and helpful. don't like that Frontier nickels and dimes the customer to death. Would like to have baggage charges not so complicated."
Cons: "My flight went out 1hr and 20 mins. late and no notification so had a very long wait at the airport and person coming to airport to pick me up sat there also... a notification would have allowed me to call her before she left her her and not waste her time sitting in her car waiting"
Pros: "We left on time."
Cons: "The children crying"
Pros: "I usually don't fly frontier and was reminded why. The planes don't have seat rows listed on them and once you get to your seat, they're terribly uncomfortable. I guess the price is right to fly but after adding 40 dollars for a carry on item, what I paid doesn't look as good. silly to me that frontier can't afford to offer a free drink as well."
Pros: "It was very good boarding was great no hassle just got on and we was off thank you"
Cons: "It'd be nice if I could specify N/A for items that I didn't have, such as food and entertainment."
Pros: "The contact points I had at each step were very friendly. Out welcome to Charlotte from the flight attendant warmed me with joy on a joyous holiday. Yet, I was not informed of the fee for carryon luggage moments before boarding. It was a shared experience a passenger checking in next to me. It was a great flight."
Pros: "Firendly crew"
Cons: "The seats are so small and close together that my 6'3" self acutally does not fit in them. There are no headrests. You can even lean forward on your tray table bc the seat in front is too close and the tray table in 6 inches long and 4 inches wide. A middle seat on a Frontier flight is the worst thing going in travel right now."
Pros: "The gate personnel and flight crew did a great job. The price of the flight was very good, about half the price of a normal non-stop. I was aware of the additional baggage and carry on costs so I was able to factor that into my decision on the price."
Cons: "I experienced difficulties with the Frontier Airlines website. Multiple calls to fix matters related to typos in our names and getting our baggage purchased. The check in desk assigned us seats but didn't tell us. The gate personnel fixed this. The flight was fine but the seats were absolutely the most uncomfortable I've flown on in many years."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic and super friendly. We actually departed the gate a little early and arrived at our destination 30 minutes early. Easy travel the Sunday after Thanksgiving felt like a miracle. You have to know that you pay for all of the extras (including coffee). It's still less expensive than flying other airlines most of the time."
Cons: "I bought a more expensive seat -- you pay for all the extras -- which meant I got an exit row (plenty of leg room), but my seat didn't recline. My flight wasn't that long but it was early in the day, so I intended to get a seat that reclined. I was disappointed for paying $25 for the seat and not even getting a reclining seat."
Pros: "My flight took off on time no luggage nor carry on but was surprise when found out frontier would charge carry on. Flight was cheap, crews were fine. We arrived half hour earlier then schedule which was great only to find out they couldn't open the plane's door so had to wait for 20 minutes before it opened. All and all I would rate 4 stars and will give another try."
Pros: "We experienced no problems, just minor irritations."
Cons: "We did not expect to be charged $45 for a bag that could have fit in the carry-on in our opinion. We had not flown for three years and would have appreciated a free soda and some peanuts, but apparently those are things of the past on flights. We also remember the days when flight attendants were all slim and whose make-up was appropriate. One of those on our flight had on fake eyelashes that looked like she might have not been able to see through them, if an emergency had arisen where we might have needed her help. She boarded the plane in stiletto heels which she later shed."
Pros: "Tout le monde a été thés gentil. Très facile"
Pros: "Staff and timeliness were great!"
Cons: "Comfort was poor- I'm a tall guy and the regular seats are too small and not very comfortable to rest in."
Pros: "During the flight they asked for medical train personnel. I got to spend the whole flight in the back galley helping a sick passenger. Just like on TV ."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Changed gate without notice. Seats did not recline. Paid extra for setting next to spouse and had to pay extra for carrying on bags. Too much!"
Pros: "So quick!"
Pros: "I liked the low fares, easy check-in and boarding and the friendly flight crew."
Cons: "I did not like having to pay for a small carry-on, not being able to pick coach seats without paying a premium charge, limited snack selection."
Cons: "The additional cost of literally everything. Our luggage was damaged and Frontier has not returned our calls regarding the damaged luggage."
Pros: "Food and entertainment were N/A for us. Price was great."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Seats are small"
Pros: "Crew was laid back and flight actually arrived a little early. People who didn't know they would be charged for carry-on bags clearly do not know how to read. The process is very clear even before you book your ticket. And you know the people who don't want to be scammed into paying extra for a seat because they are usually in the middle... Middle Rules!"
Pros: "Front desk people were nice and professional"
Cons: "Not enough chargers in the terminal waiting area"
Cons: "No warning, seat didn't recline. I was in deep pain in my lower back, almost the entire flight. My back took days to reasonably stop hurting. I still have to careful with most things I do. My back is still in delicate condition."
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "Seats way to close,"
Cons: "Seat would not even recline"
Pros: "Non stop flight, helpful staff"
Cons: "Pay extra for everything... Making the cheap flight, not as cheap as I thought!"
Pros: "Great customer service"
Pros: "the flight was excellent the stewardess were very professional and informative on the safety guidelines rules and regulations of the flight there was a slight delay but we can't help that I will continue to use kayak.com and fly on frontier thank you very much"
