Cons: "It was so late I missed my connection to sun valley flight. There was not another flight for 8 hrs!!! I think the sun valley flight should have waited for us. It was a matter of 10-15 min. Crew did not try to board people quickly to get us out of San Diego. 5 more minutes might have made a difference."

Pros: "It was on time. Flight crew was courteous. Plenty of room and comfy seats. Good entrainment media"
Cons: "Wish it would've had more movie options"

Pros: "I fly non Rev so it's great to fly economy comfort for free"
Cons: "Seats were available so not a bad experience. Sometimes not knowing if I'll make the flight is unnerving. It's worth it however for the flight benefit I book directly through Delta so very curious how and why Kayak is requesting this survey"

Pros: "Entertainment, newer plane, great crew. and complimentary meal? fantastic."
Cons: "I checked in 12 hours in advance for both trips and was assigned a B seat toward the back of the plane for both, with no capability to select my seats in advance."

Pros: "Complimentary meal and entertainment, very good service from flight attendants."
Cons: "Seat 43B?! I checked in 12+ hours in advance."

Pros: "Nice views on the east side of the flight. Caught Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams, Lake Tahoe, Yosemite Half Dome, Edwards AFB, downtown LA Free Gogo in-flight wifi allowed Google Maps to work well, though nothing else seemed to load. In-flight magazine was well-written."
Cons: "Flight ran a bit late due to departure congestion."

Pros: "Friendly crews."
Cons: "Crying girl whole flight"

Pros: "The flight crew were really nice and I was really comfortable in the Comfort+ section of the plane. It's a nice upgrade for Delta and hope the other airlines follow suit. Granted I had a very active infant, I didn't have any problems."

Pros: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"
Cons: "It was a smooth ride and overall very enjoyable flight as the entertainment was very enjoyable and a lot to choose from"

Pros: "Refer to my comments about flight from Chicago to Minneapolis."

Pros: "Decent food"
Cons: "Bad delay Flight attendants not friendly"

Pros: "Didn't know you could get complimentary meals anymore! The movie selection was awesome too!"
Cons: "Why is the complimentary Wi-Fi and messaging only for T-Mobile subscribers?"

Cons: "I have never been to Billings, so I find it rather difficult to review this flight that I have never been on."

Cons: "had to check my carryon which got WET sitting outside to be loaded on the plane. It was a cloth bag."

Pros: "Snacks included bananas."
Cons: "Forced to gate check a bag that fit within the size constraints."

Pros: "The cinnamon cookies, the in-flight movie selection, and the helpful flight crew helped make this flight not as bad as it could have been."
Cons: "There was an infant in the seat directly behind me that chose to cry and scream through a large part of the flight. The mother of this child did not/was not able to keep the child from crying. Even with headphones on, this child's crying persisted to pierce the ears of every passenger within 5 rows of it."

Cons: "Boarding was ok however person sitting next to me, her seat was double booked. Luckily the other person also got Comfort seat."

Pros: "The crew chief"
Cons: "Water not to top; towel holder broken. 20 minutes for wheel chair to arrive"

Cons: "Flight from LAX to SAN was good once we got across the airport from Westjet terminal to the Delta terminal. LAX is never simple! Comfort on aircraft today is never comfortable unless you pay the extreme pricing of premium seating."

Cons: "Strangely cold!"

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)"

Pros: "I could have flown United direct for about the same price - but chose to fly Delta via Atlanta because, well, it's DELTA. Delta's first class is really first class - it's more than just a bigger seat .... the staff from the counter to the cabin crew all treat you like you're a valued first class customer. The experience of flying today is mostly like being shoved into a subway train in Japan with no genuine gratitude for my patronage. Not with Delta - they really do go above and beyond and it is not lost on me."

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: "Delta used to be such a good quality airline, but lately, the fact that you have to pay for all checked luggage, small overhead compartments, and the over-selling of seats makes it feel cheap and less stable. I think the boarding process should start with people in the back of the airplane and fill the plane back to front. Boarding would be more efficient."

Pros: "Entertainment system was a plus"
Cons: "Boarding order. I was toward the back of the aircraft yet had to wait until last"

Pros: "Quick hop from Cincinnati to DC - efficient, nice flight."

Pros: "The cookies!!!"
Cons: "To cold on plane"

Pros: "The two ladies who were initially boarding passengers were excellent. They had wonderful people skills, were smiling, and extremely personable. I loved the interaction."

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: "Smooth easy flight"
Cons: "I arrived for my layover early, and noticed there was another flight currently boarding for my destination. I asked the boarding attendant if I could just get on this flight rather than waiting 2 1/2 hours for the next one. She said there were open seats on this flight but it would be a $50 fee to switch. This makes NO SENSE! I was standing there with a ticket purchased for the exact same itinerary, ready to board this flight with open seats, and I would have to pay extra? When this switch would open up a seat for the later flight for someone else in the same situation? Just a ridiculous way to charge people extra money for nothing. Very dissapoibted in Delta for this."

Pros: "The entertainment, the pilot"

Pros: "Flight from Narita to Kaoshiung was great, as usual, with JAL"
Cons: "Slept overnight in LA terminal, Bag sent to San Diego. Flight on American Airlines to Narita was cramped. Short stay in Narita, on to Kaoshiung via JAL, got to Kaoshiung and bag was/is still in San Diego. Hopefully, I'll never have to fly American Airlines again."

Cons: "Had to buy another ticket"

Pros: "Smootm and in early."
Cons: "Not knowing no gratis drinks were served."

Pros: "We took off and arrived on time. That was the only thing they did right."
Cons: "The service was terrible. The stewardess was clearly doing exactly what she needed to in order to not get fired."

Pros: "Everything was great!"

Cons: "Unbelievably poor customer support. They accidentally canceled my flight and when I tried to retrieve my seat back, the lady was taking it as somebody else problem... If the AA was the one made an error of canceling my seat, I wished they would show at least an attitude of taking responsibility to fix the problem."

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Numerous delays."

Pros: "Staff was awesome!"
Cons: "As was getting in line for security, overheard it was at least a one-half hour wait. The wait was actually pretty close to 1/2 hr."

Cons: "The check in process at JFK was a disaster. The kiosk check in machines were constantly malfunctioning, where to line up was unclear, and staff acted frustrated. After several failed attempts with the kiosks you have to wait in line to check in at the counter anyways. It would have saved almost an hour of my time to just go straight to the counter-- had I been allowed to. I wanted to check a bag which contained some fragile items. Several bottles of wine which I wrapped in bubble wrap and cushioned with my packed clothes. I requested a "Fragile" sticker to be put on my bag. I was told "We don't do that here". So I asked if they handle ALL bags with extreme care and I was laughed at and told to go on my way. When I got my bag at my destination-- the outside of my leather suitcase was sliced to the lining. There were scuff marks and torn leather. My wine had been completely shattered. Not just a crack in the bottle, but flattened completely. My clothes were stained, my bag ruined. I don't know if putting a fragile sticker on would have prevented this, but I don't understand why they just "don't do that". We are trusting our property to the airline when we check bags. I will never trust American Airlines ever again. They don't want to know if I have anything fragile, and they don't care when I tell them."

Pros: "Quick and easy thanks"

Pros: "My daughter liked the movie Gifted on the flight. Only decent experience in 2 days of travel"
Cons: "Worst experience with an airline ever. Never going to fly AA again. They lost 3 valued customers."

Cons: "My seat was not clean"

Pros: "plane had lots of leg room- movies were free"
Cons: "bought ticket online for an Alaska Airlines flight 3 weeks prior to flight online, picked seat, too. When I checked in online 24 hours to flight, it became an American Airlines lflight, and my seat was gone, and when I checked at the gate, I had NO SEAT! I was the last person to board the flight- no seat choice!! Absolute bullshit when I pay for ticket and pick seat 3 weeks prior- on June 6. Didn't even know if I was going to get on flight until last minute."

Pros: "Sittings on the tarmac for 90 minutes no airs no waters. 114 degrees"
Cons: "The very least employees should offer customer some waters to cool of"

Pros: "It's not the person at the gate's fault. She tried to be very informative and kind."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to leave at 630am. It's currently 945am and I'm still in the airport. Now a new maintenance issue was found. Flying is a first world luxury with first world problems."

Pros: "It was fine. Nothing special, nothing wrong. On time."

Cons: "Despite paying 5 months in advance, couldn't check in online or reserve seats without paying extra. AA customer service told me there were no more "complimentary " seats!! Very tight legroom in cabin."

Cons: "Took my bag for no reason, I flew there with it."

Cons: "The stewardesses were gossiping in the back of the plane and we could all hear their complaints about the new uniform policy. They did not seem very happy to be there and there was no in flight entertainment. A total bummer."

Cons: "AA canceled my flight my kids who live 4 hours away from San Diego drove that distance to pick me up yesterday, we got a hotel room for the canceled flight but they ended up paying $200 for the night. AA did not let us know thr flight was canceled until late last night."

Pros: "SEATS IN FIRST CLASS WERE EXCELLENT WITH MANY PERKS."
Cons: "DELAYS IN BOARDING. Almost 2hrs"

Cons: "It did not happen! Had to taxi to Austin!"

Pros: "My husband and I were traveling together to Dallas, and we were unable to sit together-The ticketing agent was very rude when we asked if she could find us seats that were together. She said, "We could ask someone on the flight to switch with us". We paid $738.00 total for both tickets to Dallas, and found it very hard to believe that we could not get seats that were next to each other. We have had this same situation on other airlines, and they were very accommodating to our needs."

Pros: "The staff were professional about the situation. Flight attendants were nice, courteous and the complimentary drinks were good. It was a good flight despite all the changes... but who likes their flight changed anyway."
Cons: "flight was delayed. standing there and they said our plane was there but didn't know what gate. our gate was a35 then changed to a28 but then delayed 1 hour, then 2 hours. So overall, it was switching back and forth then changed the time from 1830 to now a 2000 departure."

Pros: "Fast shuttle to our hotel"
Cons: "Heat"

Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Flight was canceled... apparently they won't be able to get me home until 24 hours later than I was scheduled to get there. Standing in line 5 hours later still waiting for vouchers. My bags already went to san diego. Customer service has been confrontational. Terrible all the way around."

Pros: "Unhappy first class passengers! Flight attendant decided it was better to have the first class passengers have restroom privileges and announce to the whole plane that they would have to wait until the service cart finished its path down the aisle."
Cons: "Flying has become a product of what are you willing to pay for! Baggage costs, seat costs, food costs. It's always changing I guess that's good!"

Pros: "the crew was nice. mostly what i liked"
Cons: "didn't like the fact had to check in my carry on. so many of the passenger were had more than a carry on, wasn't pleased with that."

Pros: "Flight not full so with empty seat beside me I had lots of room to sprawl!"
Cons: "I still think it's wrong for airlines to charge for food so I didn't buy any. Couldn't get United app to work so no in-flight entertainment except what I brought."

Pros: "Boarded the plane at regular time but then had to get off because our pilots were switched to another plane. We had to then get off the plane and wait 2 hours for our next crew of pilots. It was a frustrating trip."

Pros: "outstanding service from the flight crew - makes me very happy to fly United comfortable seating and in-flight options clean, efficient gate made for a pleasant boarding experience"
Cons: "folks in economy that stuffed their items in business class which made getting my items extraordinarily difficult. Flight attendants should be monitoring this as it defeats the purpose of flying exclusively on United and premier status, which includes the benefit of getting off of the plane quickly upon arrival. whoever thought the ratio of eggs to oatmeal meals is completely off base. At least 7 more passengers would have preferred eggs, but were told there were no more to be offered. intercom is way too loud, esp. if you have earbuds in - we can hear you through the earbuds, esp. when plugged into the console when we'rer watching movies"

Pros: "I was short."

Cons: "My 6:50 am flight was canceled at 11:40 pm the night before. Spent an hour and 15 minutes trying to talk to costumer service before I gave up since it was 1:30 am. Got put on a standby list for a flight and the flight was 5.5 hours delayed. Finally left SFO to San at 2 pm after being at the airport since 7am. Was supposed to originally be there by 8:30am but had to use my PTO since I missed the whole day of work."

Pros: "Service was fine, friendly flight attendances."
Cons: "Movies were not on demand, you had to wait until they would start. Then, you would be missing more than one, or watch not from the beginning."

Pros: "Nothing. As the flight never departed due to "weather""

Cons: "My flight was delayed an hour and we sat at the gate with no explanation why for over 20 minutes."

Pros: "Flexible flight and schedule is on time. Usually I taken United for my traveling ."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Staff were polite. Flight was totally uneventful (just how we like them)."
Cons: "We were all required to check our carry-on bags as we boarded as there was apparently no more space in the plane, though once on board, there was space in the overhead storage - I think they did it because it was expedient for them to have us do so. I didn't eat any food so can't really comment on it (gave it "okay" but don't rely on that). The screen for my seat didn't work - no big deal on a short flight but there you go."

Cons: "No snacks, only beverages and wifi wasn't included in ticket price."

Pros: "Everything. This flight had more space and staff were excellent. No delays and left on time."

Cons: "Flight diverted to LAX then stuck on tarmac for 2.5 hours waiting for decision. Then waited for bus to terminal. Then waited 45 minutes for baggage to unload. Then put on a charter bus to San Diego. When arrived at SAN had to wait 45 min for a cab because United didn't let the cab companies know that 250 people would be arriving at 2:30AM. So instead of arriving at 9PM we arrived in the middle of the night with horrible service all around."

Cons: "The flight was delayed and it was freezing. The TV monitors kept turning on and off and it was a night flight with the lights off, so it kept waking me up."

Cons: "I lost my opportunity to attend a work conference due to detours, mechanical issues, and poor planning. I also lost my $1000 grant that I would have received through the conference. All.i.have is a hurting back, empty stomach, and money lost on a terrible experience. Will not use United anytime soon. I wish I could change my return flight to another carrier"

Cons: "Flight never happened."

Pros: "Getting off the plane was made easy and exited with a smile."
Cons: "Seating and in flight entertainment."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "was not happy about the prices of baggage that were not mentioned upon booking and the seats were very tight and not comfortable. No wi-fi, entertainment, think I will fly United in the future"

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."

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."

Cons: "Only rough glitch was the pre flight wait at TSA, even though I was supposed to haver TSA precheck"

Pros: "on time, polite crew"

Pros: "Direct Flight"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and comforting, as this was my first time ever flying and I was terrified."
Cons: "The boarding staff were rude! There was absolutely no form of entertainment. The seats were uncomfortable online said they recline for comfort however I couldn't find anywhere to get them to recline."

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."

Cons: "There was really nothing to complain about. Seat were a little uncomfortable, but when speaking to regular flyers they mentioned how flying is not very comfortable in any airline."

Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. To many little charges; i.e. Snack drinks, baggage going and coming, seat selection. I would consider taking another airline and paying a higher price. Faulty/broken arm rest. Flight attendants slightly rude/short with passengers. Initially, the flight was cheaper but ended up being the same cost as every other airline once all the additional charges were added. What I thought was a positive for this airline quickly became a negative outcome."

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "Seats are tiny, all in flight services are for charge."

Cons: "Seats are tiny, all in flight services are for charge. However, my main complaint lies with their horrible customer service. Our flight was delaid, ultimately cancelled, and no one from the frontier staff informed us of the change, why it was cancelled, or when we would be rebooked."

Pros: "Good Fly, nice atention and good landing"
Cons: "the seats do not recline"

Pros: "The flight itself was OK considering the price."
Cons: "My luggage (and those of a few other passengers) did not arrive with me and I spent one hour for bagage claim. There was no clear reason for that: it was a direct flight and the luggage was registered two hour before the departure. However the luggage was finally delivered to my hotel the next morning."

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."

Pros: "I liked who I sat next to."
Cons: "We had to pay for our carry on, our phones wouldn't scan for the ticket, lines were long, I had to run all the way back to print our tickets out, women working outside of the gate were so rude, no tv, thin and uncomfortable seats, just overall disappointing."

Pros: "Check in was done quickly"

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: "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."

Pros: "cheap"
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"

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: "Cheap fare."
Cons: "The remodeled interior puts the seats closer together from front to back and don't recline. That also limits the size of the tray table, which is tiny. Even as a tiny, short person, it was uncomfortable. For anyone of normal stature it would be torture. Paying for a "better" seat appears to provide very little if any added benefit, just keeps your party together. There is no entertainment, movies, music, or wifi so bring your battery pack charger. There is only expensive junk food to eat. My only option on my coast to coast flight was a red eye. So you arrived just wiped out. So if you do this to save money, in my overall assessment, it's just not worth it. I'll never do it again."

Cons: "Baggage fees were ridiculous and the seats were very uncomfortable. Take off and landings were very rough."

Pros: "Super low rate - on time flight a day after a massive storm blanketed Denver with a foot of snow. I assume I have to pay for each breath I take on a Frontier flight so it's never a surprise. A la carte is fine with me when a 3,000 mile round trip is $81.- Nice attendant at luggage check-in moved me to a window seat which was appreciated."
Cons: "Frontiers website is the worst in the airline industry."

Pros: "The crew was great. We flew into some particularly bad weather and the cockpit crew did an excellent job landing the airplane. Some passengers even applauded once we were safely on the ground. The fair was - reasonable. The plane appeared to be new-ish and was pretty clean."
Cons: "A fee for EVERYTHING. I think I knew Frontier charged for everything but forgot when making my last minute reservation to see my ailing father. When it was time to check in on-line, it appeared every seat was either considered a premium seat or was not available. Middle seats and seats near the lav were considered premium. And the fee was either $20 or $35. I elected not to pay for a premium seat and took my chances that I would actually get a seat when I checked in at the counter. I believe they also charge for soda."

Cons: "No free soft drinks.."

Pros: "All the crew and do tier employees I interacted with where very friendly and curious! I had a broken leg and they made sure that I was taken care of"
Cons: "The seats we're very hard... No leg room at all (even in the stretch seating area. I was not offered any complimentary snacks or drinks."

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"

Cons: "I have flown on several different airlines thru out my lifetime but Frontier is the worst. All other airlines give you soda and coffee for free. Frontier charges you $1.99 with a credit card for a cup of coffee. I flew from DIA to San Diego Dec 23,2015 with a carry on bag. But coming Home from San Diego to DIA Dec 27.2015 my bag grew 2"inches longer and I was forced to pay a extra $45.00. It's was the same carry on bag I took to San Diego. I travel a lot and know many people all over the United States who travel and I would not ever return flying FRONTIER or would I recommend it to anyone else. P.S. I measure my carry one bag before I left Denver. Poor service!!!!!"

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."

Cons: "Flight attendant put his dick in my face!!!"

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: "It was a short flight, the customer service rep waived the carry on charge for me."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour. Food was EXTREMELY expensive. Non alcoholic drinks weren't free like most carriers. Seats didn't recline. There is a $40 carry on fee for luggage! $60 if you wait until you get to the gate. (The at gate rep was kind enough to waive the fee for me however) No on-flight entertainment. This plane was BASIC. No wifi, no tvs."

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."
