Cons: "The main terminal could really use some love. It's just a bungalow type of room with a vending machine. I really wish they had tables with chairs and a way to order a drink/food via the restaurant that's outside the terminal. This isn't a huge deal considering the airport itself only does one flight at a time so getting through security is easy. Just check any baggage you're not carrying on and go to the restaurant. About 20-30min before the flight go through security (5min process and they're probably still 10 min from boarding). It's one plane so it's easy to get through security and To get on the plane."

We were in First Class, and it was worth every penny with Sandee In our section. She had a great sense of humor, was very responsive to our needs, and made the trip home just as pleasurable as our Resort Vacation."
Cons: "There could have been more pens available for the Immigration/Customs forms. I seem to forget to bring my own sharpened pencils, ballpoint pens, awls, screwdrivers, ice-picks, and quills when I fly. Sandee loaned me hers, but there were several people scrambling to complete the forms."

Cons: "The seats weren't very wide and the carts going up and down the aisles bumping elbows wasn't pleasant."
Pros: "Boarding went fast and smooth"
Cons: "Boarding fast but had to wait 20 min on hot plane got several more passengers. Uncomfortable, no power outlets, slow loading in flight entertainment and device lost battery power during movie I paid for. Could not hear one thing pilot said from row 20."
Pros: "Staff was kind and courteous. There were some seating issues with other passengers that made it take longer than expected and people had to be moved around once already seated, but it was handled well, fast and professionally and with courtesy."
Cons: "I was unable to connect to gogo for wifi my entire trip up to Idaho, so I refused to purchase it coming back. I needed to catch up on work and it would have been an opportune time of sitting and getting things done and not taking time away from my family upon my return. It should not be offered if it is unavailable."

Not eager to fly frontier ever again."

Cons: "No reclining of seats"
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."
Cons: "Seats are tiny, all in flight services are for charge."
Cons: "There were several delays."
Cons: "Had to pay 40 to check a bag. Will be hit again on way home. Seems to be a hidden fee that I will account for in the future and do the math and not fly Frontier. Only one person checking people. No kiosks. Delays on both flights. Overall terrible experience. Took 11 hours to get from Cincinnati to Salt Lake City."
Pros: "Frontier encourages you to check your bag by offering a lower fee for checking than carrying the bag onto the plane This made getting into and out of the plane so much quicker The seats were comfortable enough and I had my own food and beverages so did not need to purchase any."
Cons: "My reasonable priced ticket went up $104 by the time I paid to check my bag and pick a seat. I would rather gate check my bag and get it when I exit the plane because it took over an hour for it to come to baggage claim."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I got Frontier because I thought I got I good deal but end the end of the trip with all the extra fee on carrier on I spent more than other airline where all the seat can be recliner, sodas free and carrier on are free too. I will try to avoid to use Frontier airlines."
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."

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."
Cons: "Ripoff across the board"
Pros: "I liked the serves & the smooth flying. good job thanks from dianna"
Pros: "Check in person at baggage and person scanning tickets while boarding were very nice."
Cons: "Did not eat any food (slept instead) and flight did not have entertainment"
Cons: "There was a man who needed didn't feel well. As a nurse w advanced life support certification I was surprised they didn't relocate him. If he needed any advanced skill he should have been sitting in an asile preferably in an area you could lay him on the floor. Stereoscope didn't work Crew didn't ask for assistance from passengers until we landed. A flight attendant did sit by this man most of the flight"
Cons: "Paying $40 freaking dollars to ship my suit case. I thought that was a bit much. Going home, how can I reduce the cost?"
Pros: "Quick direct flight"
Cons: "Seating was a little tight"
Cons: "Me and someone else was assigned the same seat."
Pros: "We landed upright with the wheels down."
Cons: "What didn't I like? Frontier has gone to teenie- tinie seats and even teenie-tinier trays. Add that to the fact that I had to pay $35 each way for my carry-on, and pay additional to select a seat. Foolish question."
Cons: "extra fees- just put the total cost on the ticket. quit trying to make the fee look small with hidden extras. no none likes extras. quality of seating- what the heck did you do to your aircraft seats. hard to sit for 2 hours."
Pros: "Flight was on time, plane was clean, crew was courteous. Frontier got the basics right"
Cons: "Charging for everything was a bit comical."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "Late take off, rough flight (turbulence), cramped seats with tiny tables that can't even hold a laptop, but worst of all is all of the fees that frontier has added… Undisclosed fees for carry-ons, seat selection, sodas, etc. I haven't flown frontier in a while-they used to be my favorite. Now, I will be avoiding frontier where possible."
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"
Cons: "Late arrival flight, thin, uncomfortable seats, no complimentary snacks, charged for my overhead bag."
Pros: "The crew on board was awesome. But the check in agent's in Cincinnati were absolutely rude and need to be better trained. Yes I know they are not employees of Frontier that they are contracted. But it leaves a bad mark on Frontier. The crew on the flight however made up for their rudeness."
Cons: "I can't believe they charged 45.00 for carry on luggage and 40.00 for one checked bag. That is ridiculous. Will stick with southwest, which I much prefer. Friendlier and more reasonable."
Pros: "We left on time."
Cons: "The children crying"
Pros: "It was very good boarding was great no hassle just got on and we was off thank you"
Cons: "It'd be nice if I could specify N/A for items that I didn't have, such as food and entertainment."
Pros: "The 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."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours! Wasted two hours of my time with my family, worse seat ever, all the way in the back, chair does not lean back, had to sleep slouching, disappointed that I had to leave two hours late after getting off work extremely early to catch the flight.. I demand another plane ticket"
Pros: "For the price of our tickets it was fine."
Cons: "I didn't like that we had to pay for soda..."
Cons: "Seat would not even recline"
Pros: "Non stop flight, helpful staff"
Cons: "Pay extra for everything... Making the cheap flight, not as cheap as I thought!"
Cons: "Crew is not friendly. Doesn't seem like they like their job. Plane is filthy. No blanket, pillow offered. Seats do not go back. The only offer was a small cup of water. Not a pleasant experience."
Pros: "Great customer service"
Pros: "It was on time - departure Slightly early arrival"
Cons: "My seat assignment in the middle - it wasn't that bad"
Pros: "Seats. Ok that they didn't recline."
Cons: "Paying for everything. Super lame. Will not fly you guys again because of it."
Cons: "The seats, the atmosphere, you're check in personel. Name it. Everything but the flight attendants and the pilot"
Pros: "landing was smooth"
Cons: "Seats were overcrowded uncomfortable with not enough room to put carry-on bags . plus they charge you for carry-on bags. Just downright insulting"
Pros: "On time and crew on plane was pleasant."
Cons: "Thaere is not enough room for a grown man to put his legs and it is so close that you can not move your legs!"
