It was my first time flying with them but the ticket agent was helpful and attentive"

Pros: "Seats are comfortable and didn’t mind staying with the back upright. Flight attendants veery friendly and boarding was fast and easy."
Cons: "Headrest was too short and there’s no seat back screen. More communication from the cockpit at the end would have been nice. Announcements were very hard to hear over the background plane noise."

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: "On time."

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

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: "Clean bathrooms and great refreshment choices"

Pros: "Flight attendant was great!"

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Due to a family illness i was not able to make the 1st leg of my roundtrip flight to Santa Ana. Not only was i forced to buy a brand new flight to get out to Orange County, i was charged $150 JUST to be able to keep the 2nd leg of my trip, which i'd already paid for. It's the 2nd Time Delta has done this to me in the space of 2 weeks and it's absolute Idiocy. Gouging you loyal customers like this is NOT how you do business."

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"

Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "The flight was very rough on landing"

Pros: "anaheim"
Cons: "luggage did not arrive same time with me and not the same airport"

Cons: "The wifi wasn't strong enough to download the app to watch movies on the plane."

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!!!"

Pros: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."

Cons: "Why can't all the Delta gates be near each other. My connecting flight was very far."

Pros: "It was as fast!!"
Cons: "Nothing was offered, my bag was checked at the door but no big deal"

Pros: "Overall great experience"

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

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."

Pros: "How reassuring the previous crew was that everything would be fine"
Cons: "They lied. Due to delays we got to plane 5 min before scheduled departure. But crew closed plane on our noses. No explanation. No consideration that most of airport was running late"

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."

"No food except pretzels were served and no movies available - no comment can be made"

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

Cons: "The past two times flying with American out of Dallas my girlfriend and I have been separated on the flight. The first time we were able to be placed with each other but this time the attendant at the counter basically told everyone that because the flight was booked and there were so many people who had the issue that she could not move anyone around to be with their families. That on top of being rude to many of the flyers just makes the DFW experience with American feel like they don’t care about you."

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Did not make this flight"

Pros: "Overall very good flight!"
Cons: "Nothing much!"

Pros: "You sold my seat , now I am sleeping in the airport it is no nice"
Cons: "Yes if you keep my seat"

Cons: "We landed early and had to wait 45 min on the runway."

Cons: "The flight was very good. The landing sounded rough with a lot of braking. Crew were really friendly. The food was expensive but fresh sandwich. Plane was beautiful. Lovely flight overall"

Pros: "Crew professional and competent"

Cons: "Due to missed connection, computer booked me on later flight, but in the wrong class (i.e., not first class as ticketed). Very helpful agent at O'Hare was able to remedy this though (didn't get her name. 6/25/19 at help desk near O'Hare gate L4, 7PM)"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "AMERICAN IS THE WORST. Never flying with them again. My flight was cancelled, &they would NOT rebook me until 2 days later. REFUSED to compensate for the hotel I booked for the night. Held my baggage hostage & would not return it for a whole day. And their customer service is non-existent."

Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, and the flight was very bumpy and the pilot really had a bad landing."

Pros: "Courteous crew and staff"
Cons: "Check bags online for all flights"

Cons: "Very confused as to why I am receiving messages regarding confirming flight and post flight review when I did not purchase this flight. I watched it, did NOT book it. I should not be charged for it."

Pros: "Being able to pick your seat ahead of time, comfortable leather seats, snacks, on-board entertainment and free carry on make it worth paying a little extra over the other budget airlines."
Cons: "Constant delays. Maybe it has more to do with O'Hare itself than AA."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Having to check our carry ons. We noticed another passenger had placed two carry ons in the overhead. If others are doing that, it forces others to check their carryons."

Pros: "Smooth ride, good service."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "As soon as I boarded I noticed a strong urine smell. It didn’t really go away, or I just got used to it."

Pros: "On time and convenient"
Cons: "Crowded"

Pros: "Departure was on time"
Cons: "Really hard seats, no phone charger outlets, on board WiFi didn’t work"

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"

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "More than 3 hour delay, entertainment system audio did not function and the flight path was set to Palm Beach instead of Orange County."

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

Cons: "Late , didn't make it on our flight back to Santa Ana"

Pros: "Nice newer plane, beautiful."
Cons: "Though I was in a elite preferred seat (not biz). I had about 6-7 inches from my face to the built in screen in the headrest. Hard not to notice that I couldn’t move an inch without hitting the seat in front of me or passenger next to me."

Pros: "Too many commercials on the TV before being able to watch the show."
Cons: "The aisles are not wide enough and people continue to hit me with their luggage and hand bags. Always the people waiting block the entrance of the gate when it is time to board."

Pros: "On time, crew was helpful and kind, entertainment options were vast."

Pros: "The AA flight attendant staff served good food and enough snacks and beverages to make me feel full on my 11 hour flight. The selection of movies and music was very diverse. And tge flight was an overall enjoyable experience."

Cons: "They put a bunch of crying babies next to me, other than that it was a good experience."

Pros: "Very smooth trip from beginning to end."

Pros: "Crew was very nice. Free snacks provided on plane."

Pros: "On time and very professional"

Cons: "The snack had coffee in it."

Pros: "There was a TV. Crew was friendly and professional."

Pros: "I enjoyed the Gps chart showing the flight data from takeoff to landing."

Pros: "Rapid boarding. On time performance. Plane was reasonably clean."
Cons: "Seats were tight but OK for a 3 hr flight. AA allows first passengers to carry excessive carry-on forcing later boarding passengers to check everything."

Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft, the attendant at the gate told me to check the size of my carryon bag against the test dimensions, which I did. My bag fit but I had to press the side in slightly to make it fit. She said it had to slide in without me pressing on it and proceeded to make me remove items from the bag in order to board the plane. I walked down the ramp with my extra pair of shoes and a book in my hands. As a result, I had to place my bag far from my seat due to the added time. My bag easily fit in the overhead compartment with room to spare and my being made an example was a completely pointless exercise."

Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me $50 when i checked in my suitcase."

Pros: "The entertainment selection was wonderful."
Cons: "The flight left on time but arrived late by at least 1/2 hour. I am small but the seat was narrow: my neighbors kept on hitting me when they moved. And I think it is terrible to have to pay to reserve almost any seats except for the middle seats."

Pros: "Flight was quiet and uneventful, but late."
Cons: "no good glutenfree options. How about a Turkey Sandwich on multigrain gf bread? Or a wrap made with corn tortillas? Toasted almonds instead of only pretzles. Or a coconut macaroon instead of a cookie made with wheat."

Pros: "* on time * courteous staff"

Pros: "Staff was pleasant and efficient. Schedules met my needs."
Cons: "Seats on smaller planes were very tight!!! It's not just your butt in the seat but where do you put your elbows?!?!?!?"

Pros: "Polite and professional"

Pros: "The flight was not only on time, but a little early!! The flight crew were fantastic & the plane looked new. Everything went according to plan which rarely happens these days!!!"

Pros: "I love the stewartesssssss"
Cons: "The dudes cause they prolly gay"

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: "As I was sitting there waiting to board the plane I started to have anxiety. Watching how many people lined up to get on the plane made me a little nervous. I even thought about renting a car and driving from Dallas to OC California. I waited until i was almost the last person to board. What a pleasant surprise. I was seated between 2 lovely people who probably could have but didn't hardly talk the entire flight. The conversations we did have were pleasant, and they slept some of the time without snoring. It was a very nice flight home! And I'm thankful I didn't rent a car. Flying is much quicker!"
Cons: "Same as above answer. Boarding the back of the plane first makes so much more sense! I'm totally sure you all have your reasons for doing it the way you do since you have been doing this thing for years now, I would just do it different."

Pros: "The attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Why are you asking about entertainment? There is none. There were a few TV screens scattered about showing something, but no headphones were offered at all, and it appeared the entertainment, which was very hard to see, was NBC TV shows. The quality of air travel has plummetted over the last 10 years."

Pros: "The chairs where comfortable and there was a free movie"
Cons: "The sound for the movie didn't work, the atenders dI'd not do any thing tI make uo for it. There was no complimentary snack. Loading on was a mess, not organized well."

Pros: "Comfortable newer plane More overhead cargo room"
Cons: "Not enough time between groups - people standing around blocked terminal Extremely full flight"

Cons: "The seats are too narrow"

Cons: "Bigger seats and food service"

Cons: "0 space felt like two people were sitting on top of me the entire flight. Seats are so small. No room to even put my arms at my side. I'm 5'9 and my knees were scraping the seat in front of me. Uncomfortable the entire flight. only nice part of the flight was the captain and crew."

Pros: "staff was fine"
Cons: "Loaded us on the plane and kept us on the small cramped plane for 90 minutes before leaving. Just stuck sitting there"

Cons: "Asked which sandwich was most popular, burger or chicken, and flight attendant told me she was a vegetarian. Diet Coke had one small ice cube."

Pros: "Great crew. Clean cabin. United App easy and free entertainment"
Cons: "Cramped seats - no leg room (unless you want to pay much more). I'm 5'10 on a good day, so I don't know how someone 6'+ can sit in the back 2/3 of the plane."

Pros: "crew was SO pleasant! respectful of sleeping passengers came around with snacks and drinks then came around a bit later with coffee and water in case anyone needed a refill or missed it the first time"

Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "United Arlines has a lot of room to improve. It’s clearly just in it to make money and doesn’t care about the individual customer"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pilot need to improve on communication skill, use better judgement when storm or other situations arise don't boarded the plane and let customers. Wait for 2hrs then turn back to the gate, I don't know what are the protocol, but letting cust. waiting in the plane on the tarmac for 2hrs that's unacceptable. Thank you"

Pros: "This was the final leg of our Toronto to Orange County trip. It was 1 ½ hours. We got on fast and took off on time. I slept through most of it..."
Cons: "As we have learned, airlines, like banks, have figured out how to make more money (even though fuel prices have dropped) fees, fees and more fees and less, less, less services..."

Pros: "I was in Economy Plus and it was as nice as any type seat on any other airline."
Cons: "It would be nice if they could serve a snack in mid flight as it's a long long way!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cut one hour and took off when I made chek in they gave another ticket I was supposed to arrive 6 pm in my destination I arrived 11 pm and they were very very rude when I tried to complain about it! United no more!!!"

Pros: "The layover in Denver worked out perfectly - no long wait. The United entertainment availability. Friendliness of crew. On-time flight."
Cons: "The leg room. Small size of complimentary snacks. No screens for United entertainment so you had to use cell phone, but this eats battery and no power in our zone"

Pros: "The crew was professional."
Cons: "What entertainment system? This was terrible. While so many airplanes have personal screens and entertainment systems, this flight was a find your own connection and good luck. Not very helpful and on a VERY late flight (due to weather)."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Layover in Newark was too long and Newark is not a good airport for layover"

Cons: "The Wi-Fi didn't work when I tried it on my computer."

Cons: "This flight seems to be frequently delayed waiting on the inbound aircraft from SFO to CVG"

Pros: "Everything was smooth"

Cons: "There wasn't anything I didn't like it was my first flight ever and it was good"

Cons: "I was forced to check in my carry-on bag (and pay). My flight was delayed and therefore I missed my connecting flight. I was unable to change seats, and the United staff were I accommodating to assist with the "Basic Economy" fare."

Pros: "All was good. Crew was nice to everyone."
Cons: "Two large people had carry on bags that did fit in the overhead. They kept trying different areas and delaying boarding for other passagers."

Pros: "Eventually got home safe and sound."
Cons: "Delayed after boarding because of a technical issue and then after waiting over an hour we had to deplane and board another plane in a different terminal. That was a bummer"

Pros: "Your crew was sympathetic to the dry air and happily provided extra water when I asked"
Cons: "Fellow next to me was having a hard time with the credit card use for direct tv."

Cons: "Too many seats too close together. The entire trip was too hot and stuffy. The flight attendants showed minimal care about the uncomfortable hot and stuffy environment."

Pros: "Efficient, smooth boarding, on-time push and take off, good skill on a crosswind landing."
Cons: "Being packed into a CRJ-700 with 50 of my closest friends I never knew. Snacks are ok but nothing exciting. No elbow room (I'm not obese)"

Pros: "Ditto"

Pros: "The crew on the plane were nice."
Cons: "You cancelled my flight when I was in chicago to cincinnati United did not offer me anything no hotel, money back nothing and I had to be somewhere very important I didn't have my thing because it was in my suitcase which i didn't get till sunday. Ended up renting a car and driving the rest of the way. Never offer anything to help me. Then United messed up my plane ticket on my way back home almost miss my flight."

Cons: "The flight was delayed, I missed my connection, the flight attendant did not care one bit, she was a bit rude, the food was horrible."

Pros: "Once we got on it went well, so I won't complain! It was a pleasant flight."
Cons: "Well my boarding group (5) was the last to board, we were informed after they shut the door and boarded all other groups that it was overbooked and that 14 people couldn't take this flight. We had 2 in our party that had made the plane (grp4, child n wife). After about a half hr of confusion and a handful of volunteers to take alternate flights, I boarded along with a friend who was traveling with me, they then shut the door behind us telling the rest they couldn't board"

Pros: "On time and available since my last flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Generally cramped and we sat on the tarmac for about an hour before taking off for some reason."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice, the plane had wifi"
Cons: "We were sat against the bathroom in the very back and there is no leg room or any chance to lean back, mine and my wife's backs were very sore after the flight. The plane was outdated, I was really hoping for TV but it didn't have it."

Pros: "The flight attendant was very friendly"
Cons: "Since I could not check in the day before I was not able to change my seat. The gate agent was not helpful"

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: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Late out of ORD"

Pros: "Everything ran on time in a smoothly Manor..."
Cons: "Not to comfortable need more space between People"

Cons: "The pane was 2 hours delayed due tom problem at airport. While we sat on the plane for 2 hours in old uncomfortable seats (5pm - 7pm) we were not offered refreshments or snacks. When the flight finally took off and they got to us after 9pm, they had ran out of food. Lastly, this plan was made for short flights. No one should be asked to sit in those seats for 7 hours."

Pros: "Everything went like clockwork, the announcements, the boarding, the take off, the landing and the on time arrival. This trip was an example of how things should go."

Pros: "Early boarding for passengers with children under age of 2 was super helpful for me as I was traveling by myself with baby for the first time!"

Pros: "choices"
Cons: "too much $ for 1/2 a meal."

Cons: "Getting rerouted to LAX. It would have been much less expensive to book a flight to LAX originally."

Cons: "My flight was late causing me to miss my connecting flight. Having to spent the night here at the airport. I'm still here waiting. I was rebooked on a 11:55am flight for this morning 7/19/16. Very disappointed."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 1/2 hours, transferred carriers and still don't have my bag"

Cons: "The flight was delayed so that I would miss my connecting flight so they change me to a different flight which was been cancelled and I had to get a different flight to Detroit where I landed as far from my departing gate as you could possibly make it with 20 minutes to get there"

Pros: "The cabins was remarkably clean and the pilot on the second leg was very entertaining, pointing out landmarks."
Cons: "The video selection on the second leg."

Cons: "Waiting In the airport 6hr waiting on a flight that takes and hour"

Pros: "We finally got to Chicago.... In one piece!"
Cons: "The delay, the plane changed so the seat assignments changed but we were not given new boarding passes, A MESS!"

Pros: "Wifi"
Cons: "Julie was the most rude person I've ever had the Unsatisfaction Of meeting."

Pros: "did not enjoy my flight whatsoever."
Cons: "they had to change me and about 10 other peoples flights because of the delays from "cloud cover" (what the hell?? terrible excuse) then the attendant LIED to me about where my bag would go. i missed my flight because of this, had to get re routed to san diego over 2 hours from my house, and my bag was sent to john wayne so i had to drive ANOTHER hour ans a half in traffic out of my way all because that illiterate moron of a flight attendant didn't know how to communicate with her coworkers about where our bags would be or how we could get them. absolutely never flying united again. horrible. what an awful day. they DO NOT deserve my hard-earned money, and the people deserve to know how truly crappy their service is."

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."

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."

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

Pros: "Flight was fine. Drunk unmasked passenger behind me"
Cons: "Move the drunk passenger in the back where there were empty seats, and monitor him to keep his mask on."

Pros: "Frontier male stewardess was rude. Most uncomfortable seats on a plane I’ve ever sat in."
Cons: "Customer service as well ass comfort"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "A lot. They could have had the decency to empathize with new travelers in this pandemic situation."

Pros: "The crew was polite and pleasant. The plane was very clean and organized."
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable."

Cons: "More leg room"

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: "I filled a lost & found claim for my mother's coat she had forgotten in flight from John Wayne California to Austin but haven't heard back even if it has been submitted or not yet. On our way back..Poor Airport service in Virginia, The lady on the counter said I can go but my mom who was on wheel chair cannot go as she wont make it to the gate and also that luggage has been closed 3 minutes ago and we cant take luggage... Three Minutes cost me buying new tickets from South west that was cheaper than you and allow extra bag. Your representative was in moo mood to either help me or compensate me in your next flight.. very Poor. Upon dialing your number I couldn't get hold of a representative to address my concerns. You guys need to improve your customer service and clients call response and make it effective."

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: "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."

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."

Pros: "nothing. it terrible all around"
Cons: "getting delayed for 8 hours and then getting locked out of security and being made to pay for an extra tickets. actually filing extorsion charges"

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."

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: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "A basic seat should not cost extra money. Nor should bottled water."

Pros: "The service was efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Not a thing."

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: "The staff was very professional. Especially the male flight attendant on F9269 Denver to Santa Ana. Staff on the plane was great!"
Cons: "I understand there were a lot of issues with the weather and the original plane to be boarded. We departed an hour and 15 minutes late and with the transfer of planes, it seemed that at least half the plane did not get their luggage. There was at least 50 of us standing at the baggage claim and we never got our bags. There was also no one to really talk to about it except one person. We all lined up to give our information to her. Fortunately, I was already talking to her when the line started and got that done pretty quickly. As far as the rest of the passengers, I'm assuming if they were at the back they had to waste another hour waiting to give information after waiting about an hour for our luggage. Also, I live local so it is not a big deal for me to go to the airport to retrieve my bag, wherever it is. Others do not have that luxury."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lost my bag and the lines were insane!"

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 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: "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."

Pros: "The price was good, but I would've been better off with a different airline."
Cons: "Every seat was the same but there was an upcharge on different flights. I paid an extra $9.00 for a window seat in the back of the plane and it would've been $20.00 for the same seat closer to the front. They also charge for bags whether they are carry on or checked. My first flight, a kid in front of me threw up and it went under his seat and all inside of my bag. I spent the entire flight cleaning puke off of my computer and my clothes. The flight attendant just told me there were paper towels in the lavatory. When we finally arrived at 11pm we sat in the runway for 30-45 minutes until our gate was clear. Then we finally pulled up and it took another 15-20 mins for them to attach the bridge for us to get off the plane."

Pros: "Departures were on time."
Cons: "I am not a big person. 5'4" and the seating space is incredibly tight. I can't imagine how more uncomfortable it is for those taller than me."

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: "Not much. This was a terrible flight."
Cons: "They charge for everything! Bags, food, drinks, seats... and the seats in the plane do not recline and the trays tables are TINY. The crew made the passengers clean the plane on account because due to the fact that it was delayed they needed to turn the plane around quickly to get it back to Denver. Never have I been asked to clean the plane on account of their delay!"

Cons: "I didn't like that you could not have a carry on and personal item but others did without paying."

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 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."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and I arrived safely. Grateful for these aspects of my trip."
Cons: "Employees were rude from the time I checked my bag, through to the end of the trip. Inaccurate information about flight times provided before and during the flight made it stressful to make my connection. The hidden fees were ridiculous, such as $1.99 for seltzer water, and a $40 (FORTY!!) bag fee. Note that you cannot pay in cash for anything. Not so unusual, but a pain since my debit card was lost. I was not even offered a cup of water on either flight of this trip. Overall, I would NOT choose to fly Frontier Airlines again unless absolutely necessary."

Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly. The food and beverage selection was nice though everything cost money, even sodas. The capatain was informative and kept us to date with every change while we were stuck on the Tarmac for almost an hour due to bad"
Cons: "I understand the reason for all the fees and I know that's how the initial ticket prices stay cheap. But some of those fees are absolutely ridiculous. We were charged almost double the price for our checked baggage on this flight compared to the previous one because during our trip it switched to "the busy season." There was no notice of this when buying the tickets. There is also no good reason to charge more for a carry on than checked baggage. Just make it the same price if your going to charge for both. Also, the increase in price for carry on and checked baggage when checking in at the airport instead of online is massive. I drove down from the mountains where I had zero service straight to the airport. Had I pulled over somewhere on the way and checkin in before, I would have saved a ton of money on our three bags. I'm not sure if I'll ever be flying frontier again."

Pros: "Quick boarding and baggage check-in"
Cons: "Lots of hidden fees, VERY unfriendly baggage policies, VERY UNCOMFORTABLE SEATS. You'll end up paying the same price for a nicer flight with better baggage policies and more comfy seats after you end up paying all the hidden charges. Expect to add $105 each way on to your total costs. The seats look like aluminum frames with some cloth draped over it..."

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: "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"

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."
