Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Team worked well together."
Cons: "Could not figure out how to plug in ac for my device. An educational label would help."
Pros: "Comfortable seating, good service, wide variety of entertainment options."
Cons: "I’m vegetarian and the food was horrendous and extremely limited."
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"

Pros: "Politeness of the crew, not cramped"
Cons: "Flight was already scheduled to get in late--around midnight. Didn't get in until ~2 am."
Pros: "I would suggest upgrading to a bigger seat for this 4.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "The crew was very nice...excellent choices in entertainment...and I appreciate the perk of Preferred Boarding in group 2."
Cons: "We had to deplane 2X for maintenance issues. It was frustrating because it caused a 3-hour delay...however, we do appreciate the safety aspect and would rather be safe than sorry. You also ask us to rate food, but they do not provide food...what do we rate...the soda choices, the teeny bags of snack mix."
Cons: "The Capt. Lying to Us and after 40 minutes sitting on the rap being held. The Captain came on and said the delay was Dorothea baggage boys loading the plane aft heavy and incorrectly loaded they had to totally remove every bag and reload the entire baggage and move most of the bags to a forward compartment . Many passengers wanted off but they crew refused Another reason not to fly United I am cancelling my return flight an returning on another airline! United is e worse airline in business today. Do not book on United Everett Johnson Bellevue, Washington"
Cons: "Roundtrip flight to Seattle with a layover, first flight went without incident, so far so good. On the flight back (during a layover) literaly 5 minutes till boarding the plane, the pilot is ready to go, the people are standing in line, United decides it wont make enough $ on the flight and gives it to an Ontario flight. We are canceled and now have to wait 4 additional hours in the airport. Was told it was air traffic control that messed up, not United, which was not even possible and an obvious untruth. Was offered a complimentary bottle of water for the trouble. Classic united."
Pros: "No charging docks on plane as military duffle bag open with clothing hanging out on arrival ~ not sure if anything stolen but the threat is very real and it's unacceptable for military bags to be delivered in that manner"
Pros: "The email updates on flight gates."
Cons: "No room in the seating, nor in the overhead."
Pros: "The smooth ride"
Cons: "Could not cross my legs Not enough room for food and diabetes kit Flight information would not load"
Pros: "Lining up in groups"
Pros: "Crew was a little more enthusiastic. There was wifi on the flight. I fell asleep for half of the ride, so we had a smooth ride for the most part."
Cons: "Asian style snacks need a little help. I was assigned to a middle seat again and my back started aching from the seats. Just little things though."
Pros: "I just missed my flight by a few minutes. The crew was very helpful for booking me in the next flight."
Cons: "No entertainment at all."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful. United took care of my hotel when mechanical issues caused a missed connection. I really appreciate them taking care of that."
Cons: "Mechanical problems resulted in a 3 hr delay. When I inquired about Overnight accommodations, the flights delay had been incorrectly listed as a weather delay... I worry it might be common practice to incorrectly list the cause of delay to improve their stats. This could also cause a problem for people on the landing side when they need accommodations... luckily, a CSR got to the bottom of the discreptancy for me."
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: "I liked that United got me a flight on Delta. A delay on my United flight would have taken off after my connecting flight took off from Chicago to Hartford."
Cons: "I did not get a text message or a phone call that my flight had a long delay."
Cons: "Delays caused missed connections in not directions and terrible rerouting plus lost luggage"
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: "The airplane was dirty. There was stuff on the window, the tray table. I get you run a tight schedule but if I didn't have Purell and a Kleenex I would have been really disgusted with the food and coffee or pop splatters all over the window and tray table."
Cons: "All my flights were delayed due to weather in airports that were not a part of either my destination or point of origin. Not a single United employee apologized. There was no one to talk to on the 800 number, no one in the airport. No offers for any sort of vouchers or compensation was offered. The United website did my give accurate updates for when the flights would be rescheduled and there were two representatives in the airport to handle several hundred customers. When I finally did get on a flight, the flight attendants pushes the beverage cart right past my seat without offering anything. I asked one of them if I could have a cup of water and her reply was a very curt 'no'. Rude flight attendants on top of everything else? And the final straw came when a mechanical error delayed my flight home and I missed my ride from the airport and had to pay for an expensive cab ride. The airline representative I spoke to once we landed told me "you should be grateful you even got home. I don't care if you have to spend money on a can, you look like you can afford it." There are no words for how absolutely unacceptable your employees behaved, and how unaccountable and disorganized your airline is. I don't care if it costs me hundreds of dollars more, I will NEVER give your company another dollar."
Cons: "Everything. United is the worst everytime. I will never fly them again!!"
Pros: "The ticket agent boarded military service men and women with priority. For the delayed flight, free in-flight entertainment and wifi was offered."
Cons: "The flight was delayed taking off two hours. Once boarded we sat for an additional amount of time. The flight attendant offered the option for those that wanted to deplane at some point and when asked how much longer we would be sitting she said it was another 30 minutes waiting on 15 people."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Seats are small and cramped."
Pros: "Nothing. As the flight never departed due to "weather""
Pros: "Had a lot of leg room"
Cons: "I wasn't assigned a seat and the line to talk to the agents was long with only one guy and the he didn't help anyone til it was almost time to board. Probably one of the most stressful flights"
Pros: "The crew made the best of the situation, seemed friendly."
Cons: "Flight left an hour late. Delay caused numerous travelers (including myself) to miss connecting flights. Plane was cramped and we had to sit there for over an hour on the tarmac while we waited for an issue with the plane's weight to be resolved."
Cons: "Sat in the plane at Cicinnati airport, for 6.5 hours before the airline decided to cancel the flight Disgusting abuse of customers."
Pros: "Was in first class and food was good however I don't think the crew knew when to set the alcohol off to a few people"
Cons: "What I didn't like about the first class was the fact of the crew gave out a little bit too much alcohol to a few people and at which point they became belligerent and bumping into people and Isles just a little to satisfied with that and would hope that would change in future"
Cons: "Man at security made me check my bag even though it fit in the test structure. My suitcase handle was then ripped off and the fabric was ripped when I picked up at baggage claim. Additionally, another person on my flight had the same first and last name as me and we had been assigned the same seats. Luckily there was another seat but it was obviously a bit mistake on uniteds part. I really dislike united. Their employees are stressed, rude, and entitled. There's no need to say things like "hurry up" or make people check bags when they don't need to...I used to fly United a lot but I will now make every effort to not fly this airline again."
Cons: "Router tracker"
Pros: "Flight was excellent."
Cons: "Same as above. In the future I will be bringing my own snacks."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Really tight seats"
Pros: "I liked the distance between my seat the seat in front of me. Hands down, this is one of the most spacious planes to fly on in economy class. I also appreciated the attendant giving me the entire can of club soda rather than pouring it over ice. Staff was communicative, and the pilot provided us periodic updates on our speedy progress and early arrival. Cleanliness of the plane was also well appreciated. Even the bathroom towards the end of the flight was in satisfactory condition. Above all, I loved that there wasn't a television in my face the entire flight. Nice to have a break from seeing screens."
Cons: "There were signs on our tray tables indicating that charging stations were under our seats. They weren't working. Although the flight attendant came on the intercom with the pilot stating the charging happened in a wave around the cabin, this was a lie. Both my neighbors in my row had devices plugged in the entire 5+ hour flight and they didn't charge a bit. It's disappointing that a small half ounce bag of peanuts is too much of an expense for the airline nowadays. Given the amount of time in the air, I believe a full meal provided by the airline would have been closer to meeting basic needs of your average metabolism. United fell far from expectations on this aspect."
Cons: "I had a carry on but they said the over head compartments were too full. So they grabbed the bag from as I was boarding. They then lost my bag. Now United is refusing to send my bag even though it has been found by the airport lost and found police in a city that was not my destination."
Pros: "Overall flight N/A good"
Pros: "It was a modern plane"
Cons: "Very cramped. No snacks. Food cost money. Tv cost most. I'm a skinny person and I had very little room to be comfortable. I enjoying flying but this flight was very uncomfortable"
Cons: "While the tv on the plane is something that I could see people enjoying, the controls are located right where an arm rest is resulting in flipping channels changing contrast and all other things I had no idea what was going on, as nobody passed that information."
Pros: "Crew was great. Plane was clean. Pilots provided rapid updates"
Cons: "Waiting to leave because of engine problems"
Pros: "There was a really awesome guy flight attendant working this flight. I liked his personality. He actually talked to people."
Cons: "We never heard the reason for the delay, which I thought was odd because it was 30+ minutes of wondering what was going on. This flight had wi-fi, but I couldn't figure out how to log on, so I didn't use it."
Cons: "Both my connections were late. First over 2 hours, the second 45 min. The salad I spent $10 on was horrible. Overall just a bad experience with the airline- wish I could get my money back."
Pros: "We had to have seats assigned at the gate and the representative gave us exit aisle seats. Upon entering the plane the flight attendants were very friendly, funny and helpful."
Pros: "All aspects ne"
Pros: "I arrived."
Cons: "It was an hour after boarding before take off. Another 15 minutes on the ground after landing waiting for a gate at midnight on a weekday. I understand that circumstances occur beyond the airlines control, but this has been routinely occurring on my trips with Frontier. Absent compelling reasons, I will not be flying with them again."
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."
Cons: "The captain of the flight was running late. We had already boarded when we found out that the captain wasn't going to make it and that they were on hold with scheduling to try and find a replacement. Half an hour later they had us de-plane. From there we waited around for another 2 hours before a replacement was able to make it. They had us board again, and then we were waiting on ground crew to come push us back from the gate for another 20 minutes. It was a disaster. We got into Seattle almost four hours later than we originally should have. The attendants were short with all of us. Granted there were quite a few people who were being nasty. I understand that it wasn't in their control. But customer service is. They all fell short."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and flight was quiet."
Cons: "I once loved Frontier and used them exclusively. Now, however, their new seats destroy my spine before taxiing from the gate. It is the most uncomfortable airline I have had to use... ever! I feel like their planes are so overpacked that, were there ever an accident, just getting out of my seat would pose a challenge. I willl avoid them at all cost in the future. It is no fun fkying in those seats for 3hrs then trying to enjoy your destination. Never again!!!!!"
Pros: "Liked the ease of boarding and cleanliness of the plane!"
Cons: "No reclining of seats"
Cons: "Crew not that friendly. When boarding first flight attendant seemed annoyed that I asked her about my seat. ** there is a fee for about everything on frontier. I would rather pay additional for the tickets on other airlines because the process to check in luggage, get to the gate, and have the Benicia of not being charged for every little thing is WORTH IT. You end up paying more to fly frontier by the time you are done paying for the extras. I prefer the one stop shop. Convenient and no drama."
Cons: "Was not aware of the cost to carry on a bag or pre assign general seats. Would avoid flying Frontier in the future unless no other options were available."
Cons: "We were part of the week when Frontier had a horrendous problem with on-schedule flights. We were two hours late for a 2.5 hour flight. At the gate, attendants were very poor at communicating. Couldn't hear them on the PA. Several people asked me "do you know what zone they are currenly loading?". They board weirdly - instead of back to front. When we got on (seated near the very rear) there were people seated everywhere. Slowed down loading, which slowed down departure. (2.5 hours late) Rows too close together, absolutely no leg room. Seats are the bare minimum - wouldn't recommend a long flight. Not sure I will fly with Frontier again. Will have to pony up the dollars for a better airline."
Cons: "Seats are tiny, all in flight services are for charge."
Pros: "The announcement (although I didn't take them up on it) to offer two domestic round trips if I'd sign up for one of their Mastercards. It's probably not a bad deal for someone who likes to have lots of credit cards and doesn't mind annual fees, I'm just not one of those people."
Cons: "My inability to access their e-mail offers to set things up ahead of time and at lower costs than paying them at the airport check-in, above and beyond the baggage charges themselves (Seventy bucks), especially for my carry on ... COME ON! I've become used to Southwest's far more enlightened policies, which I obviously prefer. Since it also has flights between Seattle and Denver, I'll look much more closely at staying with them the next time I make this trip."
Cons: "There were several delays."
Cons: "I am never flying Frontier Airlines again. Hidden fees everywhere that make the price much, much less of a deal than it looked when I did the price comparisons against some legitimate airlines. Frontier charged for carry-on bags, tried to charge for seat assignments (all of the available seats & not just the desired ones), charged for every beverage including sodas. Frankly I was surprised they didn't charge for water! Seats didn't recline at all & were like sitting on a metal folding chair for 5 hours. Food tray was about 3 inches wide, could barely put a plastic cup on it let alone a laptop or anything like that. Deceptive pricing combined with crappy accommodations - a combination I will avoid next time."
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: "Left late but made up some of the time. Staff were nice."
Cons: "Left late, then sat on the tarmac for almost 30 mins to take off. Cramped again and not happy about the extra fees (see above)."
Cons: "Behind, plane troubles, and very uncomfortable seats. Not worth the money"
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: "The crew was professional and curtious."
Cons: "If you're going to charge people for things like carry on, and seat assignment there's no chance you'll ever be my go-to airline again. If you are going to charge that much, at least give me a free cookie, include a tv on back of my seat. Most of all, give the the option to recline my seat!"
Cons: "I selected the wrong flight and called to cancel. They charged me $99 and I didn't get to go on vacation."
Pros: "Very easy flight with excellent pilot and crew. Smoothest flight I've had in years."
Cons: "Didn't get my luggage to Atlanta. They didn't put it on the plane. Had to send it to me the next day."
Cons: "no amenities"
Pros: "The price was good."
Cons: "But not that good."
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: "I like that it is inexpensive because I would not be able to fly otherwise."
Cons: "I've ridden Frontier several times but never have I ridden on a flight that doesn't even let you put your seat back. For a 4 hour red-eye, this was a huge disappointment."
Cons: "First time flying Frontier. Great advertised rate round trip Sea to Denver $140 vs next best AK at $170. Receive email to pick seat, Suprise... They cost $9-36 each way, no mention of free seats if you just show up and go open seating. also Suprise# 2 carrying are $40 each way. I choose $18 seats and had a carry on so total trip ended up being $140 + $126 in a frontier gotcha money an increase in fare of almost double. I did find out about the seat chafe scam before checking in and asked to just go open seat.....uhh no. So how much would the Alaska Air trip have been....$170 plus $0 for assigned seat and $0 for carry on so $170. So fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.... Their will not be a twice and I suggest Kayak add some notes to fares to avoid future bilking by Frontier."
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: "charge for carry on, no let room"
Pros: "The return Flight arrived early and the Frontier employees where all very nice."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seating I've ever experienced. I'm not a big guy and I was squeezed in my seat. At check in I HAD to pay extra for a seat, prices ranged from $40 - $13. This was not just to upgrade but any seat, I thought I was purchasing a seat when I bought the ticket? Also if you have baggage you have to pay whether you check it or it carry-on. If I'm going to be charged to check my bag I will then have an expectation of receiving a service. Baggage on both the arrival & return took longer then on other carriers. After paying for all the hidden fees, this flight was only about $10 less than a carrier with better seating and up front pricing. I can not recommended Frontier."
Pros: "Arriving to my destination"
Cons: "If I wanted to pay $200 more for my flight not this "good deal" I would have flown United and payed up front so it was budgeted. I have never flown Frontier so I didn't know I was going to be getting taken both coming and going just for a seat reservation! Bags! Checking in early! NOT A DEAL"
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"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice. This is the best I can say about Frontier Airlines."
Cons: "Whoever designed the seats does not understand the human form. They were TORTUOUS to sit it. I had to take my emergency anti-nausea pill, the seats torked my body so badly. I was in so much pain after I arrived at my destination at both ends, I needed medical help. Charging extra for every little thing was insane. They didn't even give you a basic drink without drooling into your wallet. I have never been charged for a carry on bag before. Checked luggage yes, but never carry on. Both on the flight out and on the flight in, they missed the boarding gate, so we had to wait a long time while they lined it up with the airplane. A frightening lack of training here. Flying sucks. I understand that; that's the way of the system now. This went so far beyond the basic suckage of the regular flying experience, it was unbelievable. Frontier will NEVER be getting my money again. Probably the most expensive flight for the least comfort and amenities you could find."
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: "Cheaper tickets"
Cons: "No professionalism by gate staff Poor boarding timing Small plane and tight uncomfortable seats No direct flights unless you're flying from Denver. High prices to check bags No snacks or drinks"
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: "1: We have paid to be part of TSA Pre-Check, but Frontier does not put this info on their boarding passes. What's with that? 2: We waited along with everyone else on the flight for over 40 minutes for our to arrive. Really? Really?"
Pros: "it was a seat at least"
Cons: "The air on the plane was not working. People over heated as we were landing and they had to call an emergency crew in to take care of the passengers. The airline did not explain the charge for carryon witch added another 70 dollars to the round trip flight. There was no food or drink with out paying for it, including water."
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: "Beer was cheaper on the flight than in the airport."
Cons: "Flight was late to board, chairs where uncomfortable and my seat keep being kicked from behind"
Pros: "The attendants were friendly, and I sat next to a great gal."
Cons: "The small trays were ridiculous. No beverages and having to ask for a free water seemed below average for airline amenities. We sat on the runway for 45 minutes "waiting for the processing papers." Still made it on time, but it was not a good way to start."
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: "My mother did not get one of her bag back when we arrived in Seattle"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "They took my bags"
Cons: "They lost my skis It took 30+ minutes for anything to disembark. They loaded another plane before moving any of our luggage to the"
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "my bike and my girlfriend's bikes as well as the vast majority of our luggage were lost in transit and we are currently stuck in loreto mexico waiting to locate our things. hopefully this can be resolved quickly as it is becoming very costly and interrupting our travel plans."
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."
Pros: "We left on time."
Cons: "The children crying"
