We were making a move to Mexico from the U.S., and we were amazed at how pleasant the trip was. We had quite a few pieces of luggage, and everyone was extremely helpful. The crew and staff from both Delta and AeroMexico were great, and made our trip as easy as possible. Thanks to all!

Cons: "My bag was roughed up a bit. Protective belt was torn off & signs of light damage."

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: "This was probably the best flight I’ve ever been on. The staff had a great sense of humor, as well as openly honored our military by bumping up an active member to first class."
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."

Cons: "Water not to top; towel holder broken. 20 minutes for wheel chair to arrive"
Pros: "Service was great"
Cons: "Food wasn't great cookie!"
Pros: "Didn't nickel and dime us about snacks or entertainment. Warned us about turbulence, but it wasn't too bad, thanks to the pilot for doing his best to keep us on an even keel. Did not feel,squished in the "comfort" or Premium Economy seats. In the lowered expectations world of modern air travel, this was relatively OK, which means I recommend it and would fly with them again."
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"
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)"
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."

Very little food option

I’m not a fan of small planes. Not enough leg room. There was a man that would keep his mask on. He and his partner were disruptive. He/they should have been arrested upon landing. Or at least inconvenienced in some way.

Worst airline experience of my life, depending on how the rest of my “customer service” experience goes I may never fly american airlines again.

The flight itself was good. Unfortunately I somehow found myself surrounded by 2 rows of families with small children. I had about all of the seat kicking and yelling that I could take for 3ish hours straight. Kinda wish the staff could have intervened somehow.

Pros: "Easy"
Cons: "All was good."

Pros: "Flight attendant, David, was extremely professional and nice."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "They overbooked every flight of the day (total of 4) and offered us no solution except what as standby and try to get on next days flight. Very bad form and they were not helpful in finding a solution. we finally rented a car and drove home over 8 hours- still trying to get the rental car cost reimbursed....and oh yeah they completed tore apart my METAL GUN CASE!!!!"

Cons: "On the flight home my seat wouldn't let back, so I had to sleep in an upright position. Lol"
Cons: "The fact that people carry-on luggage that exceeds the max requirements for carry on luggage so they can avoid the checked luggage fee. It's a disgrace. It time to live by your rules, the same for everyone. I had to be rebooked out a different airport as PGV was flooded. I was seated in 21F which does not recline. AA cancelled my flight out of PGV, a better seat would have been nice since I had to drive an hour to EWN whereas I was staying only 10 mins from PGV."

Cons: "United Airlines doesn't have power outlets in their economy seats."
Pros: "On time, good service"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The temperature on the plane was so cold that ice was falling on passengers throughout the flight from the vents. I chose coffee for my in-flight beverage to warm up, but the flight attendants did not have lids available to offer. As you can imagine, that didn't end well on a turbulent flight."
Pros: "Fast flight home"
Cons: "The 3 hr layover in Houston"

Pros: "That I arrived to Memphis on time!"
Cons: "That the air isn't on until its time to board, instead of being a lil before its time to board."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was good."
Cons: "First time flying Express...plane was really small and seat was uncomfortable even on a less than 2 hour flight"
Pros: "I was incredibly disappointed that my luggage got sent on an earlier flight to Memphis from Chicago. When I arrived in Memphis after 24 hours of flying, I found my luggage locked up and no representative to be found. Exhausted, frustrated, and seeing my luggage through the glass door and not being able to retreave it, I was incredibly frustrated with United. If you are going to send luggage on a different flight, be there and available to let travelers claim their luggage. My entire flight had gotten their bags from baggage claim before I even found someone available to open the door. I had to get an American Airlines representative to call them to the area twice before they arrived. If you are going to do this, offer the traveler to be on the earlier flight too. I was very disappointed, especially after my flight was delayed by 45 minutes on top of it."
Cons: "The poor customer service."
Cons: "The snack food was the worst I've ever had on any flight. It was some kind of Asian-style snack and I almost gagged. Never had a snack on a plane I couldn't eat until now."
Cons: "Flight delayed so booked on another flight. Get to layover and was told that United tried but couldn't book the second leg of the flight after all. Before we left our original destination, they assured us all the arrangements had been made. Lying to customers doesn't look good for businesses."
Cons: "My TSA wasn't tagged to my ticket"
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!"
Pros: "United left late and then had their connecting flight leave early. Both flights were through United and on same itinerary. My teenage son was treated rudely and left to find for himself by the United counter in Dulles, even though he would have made the connection if they had adhered to the departure time. Staff refused to speak with me because, as they told my son, he was the passenger. Unbelievably poor service....and lack of care, professionalism and compassion."
Cons: "Everything"

Not one thing to complain about

We got here thirty minutes ahead of schedule. That's pretty awesome. I wouldn't change anything personally.

Pay for everything, seat, bags, water, boarding, etc. Flight from Orlando was serious late.

Pros: "Cheap! So cheap!"
Cons: "The lavatory could use some love. “Paper Towels” was written in black permanent marker above the dispenser. WiFi would also be nice on a 4.5 hour flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight attendants continued to over serve drunk passengers in row 17 18 and 19. Two large parties came into the plane hammered. One spilled a drink on me while his buddies from across the aisle hit me in the eye with an empty liquor bottle screwing around. Another member of their party got up to go to the bathroom while we were landing. Flight attendants did nothing to accommodate me or the other 100 people pissed st the clowns. Last time I fly frontier most likely. I’ll be calling corporate shortly. Like to know why they continued to over serve them?"
Cons: "Not only was I unsure of what time to get to the airport because of all the text messages with different times, but it was delayed more and more once I got to my stop in Orlando. Once I finally got to Vegas, my bags were lost. And on the flight back, I had to go back out just to get my bags on the layover flight and check them in again (PAY FOR THEM AGAIN TOO). Just a really horrible experience. I will never book Frontier again. It was miserable."
Pros: "price was amazing! customer service did their job but with little-to-no empathy."
Cons: "the flight was delayed, which i knew about. then it’s was moved up, which i wasn’t informed about until i walked to the gate to find it empty."
Pros: "Nothing really after paying $45 and l have to pay another $45 to go back to Cincinnati"
Cons: "Too much luggage fee $45 is too much"
Pros: "It got me where I needed to go, albeit with a little effort and stress. Crew was pleasant. Thank you."
Cons: "6 people overbooked, who might not have gotten seats. I was one of them. I recognize there was nothing I could have done either way but it was unpleasant to hear I might not get a seat on a flight I bought a ticket to a month ago, regardless of the price. And the return flight was dismal. Had to wait an extra 3 hours for maintanence on the plane (fine, would rather it get fixed than have an issue in the air) but we were told there would be vouchers worth some amount sent to our email after we landed back in cincinnati. It's been 3 days and I have received no such vouchers. It also turns out I payed $45 for a personal bag that was I guess covered under a personal bag? I recognize this as being partly my fault, but when I went to get my ticket "personal bag" wasn't an option, so I didn't think I had one, or my single backpack actually was $45 to take with me. Was not a terrible experience. Just not a good one."
Pros: "Flight was only 2 hours."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable. Tray table can barely fit 1 water bottle. The have taken the standard tray table and made it into something that is basically worthless. Forget trying to use a laptop or even a tablet to work. They charge for everything and now ask you to tip your flight attendant for handing you a water that costs $3.00. Will avoid Frontier at all costs in the future. Seats are thin, hard and so close together. No room between seats. Seats do not recline unless you are in emergency exit room. If you want to select your seat during check-in, they charge you extra. Even for a seat in the last row on the plane was an extra $5 just to select it. Seats closer to the front were an extra $25, but these are not better seats or offer more room, just the ability to get off the plane faster after landing. Carry on baggage cost extra and checked bags are $40. After paying for baggage, seats, a water on a round trip, the low cost turned out to be more expensive than another carrier with seats that are more comfortable and gave you more room between seats, entertainment and a free soft drink or water."
Pros: "I liked that I could fly to my destination with a non-stop flight. I also liked the (what seemed to be) final prices of the tickets."
Cons: "I did not like that I had to pay for seats when I already bought a ticket for the flight. It was a hidden fee and unfair to charge. The carry-on bags were also a hidden fee. I figured as much that to check a bag would be more expensive, but to have a carry-on cost as much as a checked bag? Not cool."
Pros: "I arrived alive. Flight was not delayed. Water was free."
Cons: "Leg room and seats lack an appropriate amount of cushions and space for long flights. The seat back trays are a joke. My tablet was bigger than the tray. I also dislike the extra charges for EVERYTHING that was not disclosed on the purchase through Kayak like seat selection, carryon bags, early on zones, etc. No snacks were offered on the flight. I understand that this is a discount carrier, but after all was said and done, I could have paid the same for a major airline and had way more room and comfort. No pre-Check. WTH??!!! The airline attendants bumped me going up and down the aisle EVERY single time and never offered an apology for bumping me and I was NOT in their way."
Pros: "price and flight time"
Cons: "had to ask for water, it was not offered when they asked if anyone water to purchase food & drink. bettter seating was too expensive"
Pros: "Crew was always nice, plane was clean. Appreciated the 50 dollar voucher I was given from my previous delayed frontier flight (LGA to CVG) - it was nice to receive it without having to ask."
Cons: "Seats don't recline, everything is an extra charge (was not notified that selecting a seat or having a carry on was an extra charge when I booked via Kayak, added 100 dollars total to my round trip - misleading), no tvs."
Cons: "My flight from LAX-DEN was delayed. Ended up missing my flight, as well as my flight from DEN-CIN. We as passengers were not told where to go (we waited two hours to hear any kind of news). We were told that the Frontier staff would know what was going on at the DEN airport once we arrived, but they did not. We then waited another hour to be told where to go. I was given a voucher for my hotel, food and transportation. However, my transportation voucher did not work. I waited over an hour for a bus that never came. My transportation in the AM back to the airport was not covered either. I ended up paying money out of pocket both times when it should've been free of charge. The staff on the airplanes were OK, although at times unprofessional."
Cons: "Frontier is now a leader in PRICE FRAUD & Extortion! They believe in Dishonest pricing & Deliberately deceiving their customers. They slapped me with an $80 fee to board my flight! Extortion!! So my $170 airfare suddenly increased in price by 47% !! This is a total scam. Worse than a bait & switch scam (which is illegal). Even the smallest tote bag with a toothbrush & overnight clothes will incur extra big fees for carry-on "luggage"... Where is the FCC & the consumer protection bureau on this?...Fees for basic carry-on items needs to be made ILLEGAL!! I'll never fly again with such a dishonest airline. Sign me up for SouthWest every time...I don't care what the price difference is, I refuse to give my money to mobsters.You blew it Frontier! Never Again."
Cons: "Arrived on time time only to be told to wait in line as others who arrived late and after me were moved to front of check in line. Stuck on tarmac due to rain: 30 minutes so far. Crew on board was fine. True what others say about plane feeling old."
Pros: "Heather was great with all of the young kids on the flight. A nice greeting, and helped put the kids in a good frame of mind for the trip. The crew hustled given that we were only in the air for 80 minutes!"
Pros: "the direct flight. the only reason i booked with them :/"
Cons: "paid the extra $74 (discounted - bundle rate) fee to check bag and carry on and select a seat! crazy... i was wondering why a 4 hr fight from cincinatti to san diego direct could POSSIBLY cost just $90... now i know.. it DIDNT... it cost $164 each way... lol. NOT. also - the crew was just lame. they didnt look at you ever and you had to flag the down after they passed you to hand over trash... basically just spent their time socializing and had an overal BITCHY tone... that you didnt matter to them. will avoid this airline from now on."
Pros: "Timeliness, rapid boarding, departure and arrival. Cleanliness. Price"
Cons: "No snacks, only water is complimentary. Seats are ok, no wifi to connect to, no reclining seats, no in flight entertainment. Have to pay for everything including carry on."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. I just feel lucky I made it back to Orlando considering I did not get to my destination on time."
Cons: "Everything about frontier. I understand it is a budget airline and I don't expect the basic comforts any other airline would provide. However I do not appreciate the hidden fees they will find a way to slap onto a traveler no matter how much research you do. In reality they are probably one of the more expensive airlines although they have no customer service and you could not possibly imagine a more uncomfortable flight. I also no longer trust them to to get me to a destination on time. I will never fly frontier again and kayak should consider no longer booking flights with this airline. When I tried to complain they referred me to kayak as if it was kayaks fault that my flight was delayed."
Pros: "Arrived at airport at 940 pm which was great because we were early but didn't get off the plane until almost 12am due to an airplane being worked on at our parking gate and also had to wait for local sheriffs office to board the plane to escort a lady off the plane when we finally did park and during that time the flight attendants were yelling at the paying customers because they had their phones out. One flight attendant even smacked a phone out of someone's hands! Will take a miracle to get me and my family to ever fly frontier again. Worse flight experience ever."
Pros: "As you all may have guessed, Frontier Airlines is absolute garbage to fly with. Not only do you pay an astronomical amount to fly your bags, there are no in flight refreshments and the service is heinous. Even when I had a THREE hour delay that then put me getting home at 1 in the morning, not a single apology was said by staff, no one was even in the gate to talk to those who had connecting flights. I will never fly frontier again even though it is the only airline that flies direct to Denver. I would rather sit 12 hours on a Southwest flight than ever have to talk to Frontier employee again."
Cons: "Had to pay for drinks and couldn't recline the seat even a little. Also, microscopic tray tables. Having to pay to choose your seat and get a lemonade on a flight is not my idea of comfort or convenience."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional, and the pre-flight instruction "talk" was very humorous, which kept the attention of the passengers. Seats were comfortable enough for our 2 hour flight. Boarding was very quick, and the plane was a nice, new airbus. The flight home was only half full, so we had more room to stretch. Plane was very clean. We got by with one checked suitcase to save on the carry on fee, which I'm hoping they do away with as they grow in competitiveness."
Cons: "We went online to check our bag, just one, and the site "The Perks" automatically added a carry on for both of us on both the return and departure flights. We could not edit online at all, and had no luck reaching them by phone. Sent an immediate e-mail stating we were being charged for something we did not have, and received a reply confirming we picked a "bundle" which we did not! When we arrived back home, I was able to talk directly to a supervisor, and got MOST of the bogus charges dropped. Be wary ! You SAVE by doing it online, but next time I will check baggage by talking to a LIVE person by phone."
Pros: "The humor of the crew, the skill of the pilots"
Cons: "Seats are impossible to get comfortable in. The cabin temperature was too warm to he point I felt air sick."
Pros: "Both of my flights left early and arrived early. Makes me wonder why other airlines are always late."
Cons: "The baggage fees are ridiculous. A small carry-on bag should be free, not a third of the cost of your ticket."
Pros: "The no-frills (cheap) pricing."
Cons: "We had about a 3 hour delay with no explanation. The tickets told us to be there for boarding at the normal time though, so we were essentially threatened with missing the flight and had to hang out in the airport for several hours. The seats don't lie back at all, and the airline is very basic. Then again, you get what you pay for and we were expecting that."
Pros: "Boarding was quick. Enough room for carry on items."
Cons: "Seats are tight/uncomfortable. Flight was delayed with no notice until we looked at flight boards after getting through security."
Cons: "Every plane I was on, from Memphis to Denver, Denver to San Diego and the return flight back home, every single plane was delayed. I lost so much time being stuck in an airport that could have been spent with my grieving family even if I didn't have a grieving family, this was unacceptable. There was one instance where the plane was delayed (of course) and they changed gates at the last min without making an announcement or letting anyone that was waiting at the gate know! The Captain and Flight attendants just started moving to another location! Not only will I never fly with Frontier again, I will actively tell everyone I know that flies to never fly with Frontier not just once, but every time I hear the word airplane. In the positive section I mentioned that the flight attendants were good with letting us know what is going on, well the Captain is the one that is supposed to be the one letting us know what is going on, not the flight attendants. Whatever Frontier has got going on, seems like it is overwhelming. I will never fly with them again."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, humorous, and accommodating."
Cons: "Charging for any kind of snack or drink is pretty frugal and ridiculous. At least having some complimentary drinks would be nice. Most airlines have a movable headrest, complimentary music, and recliner chairs. I understand cost savings and maximizing profit, but I feel like frontier has gone too far and seems unconcerned with customer contentment. Also, we arrived at the gate 40 minutes late because our gate was occupied by another plane. An alternate gate could have been chosen earlier than it was in the end."
Pros: "Cheap (except for the ludicrous bag fees. Really???) On time--big plus."
Cons: "Bag fees are ridiculous. The crew is non-present. On my return flight the only employee who spoke to us was a clearly unhappy woman who was going down the aisle with a garbage bag yelling, "Trash! Trash!""
Pros: "Aircraft was clean, staff were really friendly and professional, no flight issues"
Cons: "Did not like size of pull down trays, do not like paying for a cup of coffee and sure as hell do not like being asked to leave. A tip for the attendant when using a credit card. Do not like to be gouged for amenities that were once free."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable, length of time for check in, although we were early, we couldnt check in early"
Pros: "The time of the day the flight was supposed to occur"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 12 hours before scheduled to take off; didn't have a pilot. Having to pay for seats and luggage; Seats did not recline; Flight took off 45 minutes late; when we arrived in Denver there was no place to park the plane; waited for an hour and 10 minutes to get off the plane; captain kept on giving us inaccurate information; lots of apologies but it was enough to prevent me from flying with them again. They have gone from a great airline to a horrible airline - you get what you pay for"
Pros: "got there safely and our checked luggage went with us ; plus the employees were nice but that's about it. Could've been worse but won't Frontier to make it so in the future."
Cons: "We were late arriving on both flights, online check in didn't work, had to pay extra for ANY seat and for all other things that aren't normally paid for on other airlines and the airline overall is obviously barely making it. I thought that major carriers such as Delta and United were bad but Frontier and so many others that are cut rate airlines make them look not so bad which is why I'll go back to flying with them and Frontier will probably never see my money again."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Flight delayed. Disorganized boarding. Generally uncomfortable an unpleasant."
Pros: "Great price and direct flights"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hrs and that caused many of the passengers to be irate by the time the flight boarded. The boarding crew should have been a bit more competent and comforting to assure passengers."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled. It was rescheduled to fly out 8 hours later. The lady at the check-in desk was so rude to me and the other customers around me. She talked to me so hateful! That would have been my first time ever flying with Frontier airlines. I will NEVER fly with them because of this experience, and plan to let all of my family and friends know how rude, uncaring and unprofessional this airlines is!!!"
Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable, we were delayed 2.5 hours and had a 4 hour and 45 minute flight and didn't get a drink or a snack."
Cons: "It took over an hour and a half for our bags to reach the baggage claim. I could have carried my own bag from the plane way faster than that. Made us miss our arrangements in Denver. Poor service."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I selected the wrong flight and called to cancel. They charged me $99 and I didn't get to go on vacation."
Pros: "For a traveller, without any luggage or even a small carry- on, with a very nominal fee, it is the best & economical way to travel. For example, in my case, my son & myself had to take all his stuff like sofa, bed, dressers, chairs, tables, & kitchen wares other household items in a U-Haul & drove his car ti Cincinnati, Ohio (as he finished his studies in GMC & had to start his residency in children hospital in Cin......After unloading all the stuff in his apartment, I had fly back to Atlanta with only a small backpack, there was no sense to pay about $250.00 with Delta, it was a logical way of coming by Frontier costing less than $50.00. with comfortable seats within an hour."
Pros: "This was my first time on Frontier. Like any other airline the process from getting on the plane to my destination was just like any other. I had low expectations, as I do with nearly every flight I go on and was pleased by the fact that nothing was truly below my expectations."
Cons: "I'm fine with the lack of entertainment on a flight considering most people bring laptops and tablets and other ways to keep themselves occupied. I never pay for in-flight food or beverage because of the prices but was kind of surprised nothing was complimentary. Not shocking by any means considering the price of the ticket. I was under the assumption there two separate fees for baggage, one if you preferred to check a bag and one if you carried on a bag. Had I of known that my carry-on would be checked I would have brought a larger luggage container to get the most for my money. Again, though, hard to beat the price of the actual ticket."
Pros: "Great price."
Cons: "Seats don't lean back at all.."
Pros: "cheap"
Cons: "no amenities"
Pros: "The lines were short. Staff was friendly. The prices were great! This is a very professional air line and I will definitely use them again. A few things to improve on: simple things like complimentary coffee or water would be nice. Also, a magazine for flyers would give us a nice touch of entertainment. These are small things that matter."
Cons: "No complimentary water or coffee."
Pros: "The staff were great, the flight was on time and smooth. I was hesitant about Frontier because of all the bad reviews but my experience was excellent and When I fly again it will be with Frontier."
Pros: "Honestly, there was nothing positive about my experience. It literally broke my heart and reduced me to tears in public."
Cons: "I'd just barely missed my 45-minute cutoff, and the employees at the desk refused to do anything to help get me on my flight. In fact, when I started crying and explained why this trip was immensely important, I was told, "You can cry all you want, but it won't get you on this flight." They offered to reschedule me for a flight two days later, which would have meant missing the viewing and mass and only being able to make the funeral, and which would cost as much to reschedule as the ticket I'd already purchased. I unfortunately couldn't afford to do that. Lastly, I was told that I could call Frontier to see if I might be able to get a refund. But, umm, they work for Frontier. Why wouldn't they just know? I never bother to review anything online, positive or negative, but my first experience with Frontier will be my last. I cannot believe how horribly I was treated, especially in light of my circumstances. Have you people no empathy?"
Pros: "crew was friendly. flight act tally left a little late from the scheduled time but arrived at destination early!"
Cons: "seats were uncomfortable for a 3 1/2 hour flight"
