Pros: "Service"
Cons: "More seat space"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."
Pros: "The crew was great and the service was quick and very nice."
Cons: "It sounds weird but I didn’t know which window was mine so I had one shut and the one in front of me shut during the flight."
Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"
Pros: "Amazing crew and clean cabin."
Pros: "The staff was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "My husband and I could not fit in the seats without our shoulders being on top of each other. My shoulder was in the aisle way. I am 5’8 and my knees were up againstthe seat in front of me. Our flight from CVG to DFW had none of these problems."

Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable and the entertainment was not readily accessible."
Pros: "Mobile entertainment was great and the crew was lovely."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed, which is a understandable part of travel. But what made it worse was that we didn’t have any visibility on our actually departure time. We were first told our flight would be delayed an hour, then the departure time was moved up 40 minutes without any clear messaging. We caught an email from Delta, but if we hadn’t, we might have missed our flight. The plane was also abnormally loud on board, and the air pressure seemed to fluctuate throughout the flight, making the experience uncomfortable."

Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pros: "We flew first class for the first time. Now I don't think I'll fly any other way!"
Pros: "Small plane. Not a lot of room for carry-ons."
Cons: "Short-ish flight"
Pros: "Cookies"
Cons: "Space"
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Pros: "Nonstop quick flight"
Pros: "Weather, I think, caused a delay for my flight to Atlanta from Dallas which results in missing my connection. I was traveling with my 4-year old granddaughter. However, when I arrived having already missed my flight, I found special assistance area and was able to immediately connect with an agent who booked us on the next flight (last flight of the day to Richmond). Saving the day."
Cons: "All the planes were full and did not have enough room for carry on causing delays and getting the flight off later. The gate agents and crew did what they could to get the plane loaded faster, but they loaded the front first and those in the back could not get past making loading the plane take even longer."
Cons: "The flight attendant looked like she was mad throughout the whole flight"
Pros: "The African-American gentleman flight attendant was extremely helpful, funny, engaging, and service exceeded normal expectations! The plane had blue lights & calming music on in the cabin."
Cons: "The plane didn't have full catering options."
Pros: "Nice flight. Early arrival. Had a complementary beer onboard. Luggage in less than 20 mins."
Pros: "Flight was smooth once it finally left."
Cons: "Plane was delayed coming in, due to mechanical reasons. So I missed my connection and had to take the later flight. Ended up sitting in Minneapolis for 5 hours waiting for my flight. Had to cancel my rental car cause they close at 8 and my new flight didn't get in til after 9. Because of that I had to have my parents drive 2 hours at night in the snow to pick me up. I booked this flight months ago and had everything set so it would be smooth, but it turned into an all day ordeal that Delta offered nothing more then a, sorry for your inconvenience."
Cons: "Delayed by an hour and then the took nearly an hour to board when they made people check their carry-ons and their printer broke.."
Cons: "The video on safety did not work"
Cons: "While waiting for seat assignment the plane began boarding after being told by the clerk at the counter my name would be called I had to see the clerk for my seat after the plane was boarded not very professional no food options given on plane just handed cookies and attendant walked away"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 min"
Pros: "Crew was very good. Seats were uncomfortable. Too close together and hard."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and the seats were roomier than I expected."
Pros: "I did not get my luggage in Munich"
Cons: "I know that flying isn’t what it once was when it comes to comfort and amenities, but good, polite, service seems to be vanishing as well."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Plane boarded late for unknown reasons then once hosted left late due to maintenance. Seats were mediocre at best, WiFi was over priced for the length of flight, pretzle bags were incredibly small and beverage options all involved a cup, no small bottles of water even."
Pros: "Seats comfortable. Easy boarding."
Cons: "United couldn’t seem to get gas in the airplane and we had delayed departure from DFW. Upon arrival to Chicago we taxied for 22 minutes to the gate causing rushed connection to Munich. Baggage did not arrive at Munich so now we have no luggage."
Pros: "the flight attendants and service were amazing and perfect. The green tea from All Nippon Airline was awesome."
Cons: "All the food were terribly salty, inedible because the beef was hard like rock, I was unable to eat or chew. The sauce was salty and terrible so threw them away. In general, the food were inedible and poorly prepared that means they were not considerate and discreet about cooking, selecting material,too. The airline only pick the terribly cheap meat to scam and mistreat the passengers. I felt I was ripped off and sadden."
Pros: "Even though we had a few delays and got stuck in Milwaukee for a couple hours the crew was cheerful and helpful and made everything much less stressful, by far one of the best flights I've been on"
Cons: "Was a not a fan of the weather delays, but that can't really be helped."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Just waiting in line to get on a plane. Pretty easy."
Cons: "No problems with the flight from Dallas to Chicago. Very quick and easy flight. Chicago to Paris was a bad experience."
Pros: "I LIKE THE SERVICE ON BORD OF THE PLANE"
Cons: "NOTHING"
Pros: "Friendliness of Crew"
Cons: "Seat handles would not go all the way up. Did not make for enough room with an empty seat righ beside me."
Cons: "I booked my flight months in advance and paid for the leg room in the emergency row. I get a smaller plane and cramp seating. Wasn't sure why this happened and why I wasn't compensated for what I was charged for. Wondering if I need to change my regular air carrier now. I don't like small planes!"
Pros: "Semi professional. Placed in a small space for over four hours and staff at counter did not seems to know the flight status most of the time."
Cons: "Pilots being on strike in Olso, did not know if we were Flying Into olso that day or not. Luckily we were only delayed four additional hours ."
Pros: "At all points in the process from check-in to exiting the plan, the staff was quick to step in and help with direction to keep everyone moving."
Cons: "A teacher was put into tears at the gate agent desk prior to boarding because she had a purse and a shopping bag but had a ticket that only allowed one bag that could not be a full roller board. I did see her eventually board wiping her tears away with a single bag, so she either paid the extra $50 or they figured something out."
Cons: "Delays all day"
Cons: "Wifi didn't work. Entertainment options limited."
Pros: "Very clean and pleasant flight personal great."
Cons: "I know many people don't care to eat but the airlines could provide a better selection of food to serve or snacks."
Pros: "Slept so can't complain."
Pros: "I liked that my flights were on time! We even arrived earlier."
Cons: "The woman when boarding the plane in Chicago was very rude. Crew is not friendly! We received one glass of soda, they do not give you the whole can and one small snack. In Delta they give you the whole can and they give you 3 snacks. If I have a choice I will not fly United again."
Pros: "Arrived early which was great. Thank you"
Pros: "Nice comfortable seating."
Cons: "Liked everything"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Chicago"
Pros: "Great flight. Flight attendants were great"
Cons: "Did not take flight, but couldn't reschedule because re-booking was more expensive than the original ticket."
Pros: "Flight was great after sitting on tarmac In dallas for an hour.?missed my connection by seconds... I would have thought they could have held the plane for 5 min"
Pros: "Getting home, early"
Cons: "Flight was a hour late leaving, when I got to my destination my bag wasn't here due to just making my connection"
Cons: "Entertainment could have been better."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was oversold so they booked another flight on American that still hasn't even left Dallas! Should have arrived by now."
Cons: "Packed in like sardines. This is not comfortable."
Pros: "Respect for military personnel and disabilities."
Cons: "Seating arrangement for economy passenger."
Pros: "The snacks"
Cons: "It was a really noisy flight because a little boy was crying in the back"
Pros: "This was the first time I flew United, wow, I was so pleasantly surprised. I am very tall and need leg room. The way United had their seats designed have plenty of leg room for me, even in economy class. I will look for United flights from now on."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Plane was clean overall."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 5 hours. They saw it coming as delayed all day with equipment problems that morning and then Houston weather. Why didn't they substitute the aircraft? When we finally got to Chicago at midnight another group was still waiting to board. It's just amazing the crew didn't hour out."
Cons: "The flight was delayed numerous times. I lost my connection twice. At the end, they transferred me to American Airlines. I spent 10 hours in the airport and they didn't even give me a voucher to eat. It was a terrible and stressful day for me."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly"
Pros: "Was nice"
Cons: "Pay for ticket and couldn't get a seat assignment. Had to go to the kiosk before my flight and try to get a seat. It processed for 5 minutes while I waited thinking it was stuck. Finally it told me there were no seats available unless I wanted to pay for upgrade. Gee I thought a seat came with the price of a ticket. Then there was no shoulder room in the seating and I am an average sized person. There was leg room because it was an exit row. Then they tried to sell me a round-trip ticket that was more costly than buying individual tickets. What a scam."
Pros: "The plane was clean and the.05 ounce snack was very tasty. Incidentally, the tasty snack was scant. Sadly, I saw nothing appealing on the pay menu. My flight connected from DFW so I was kinda hungry."
Cons: "The seats are too small and if the nice big and tall gentleman sitting next to you is obese, the time cannot pass quickly enough."
Pros: "Not one thing."
Cons: "I chose to fly UA back from a trip to Fort Worth because your price was cheaper than the airline I normally use. Boy do I know why! You have the rudest staff I have ever encountered. My day started out at 6:30am with one of your staff members rudely telling me I had to check my bag, which met all of the dimension requirements you put in place, because two notches on the back side of the carry on did not allow it to completely slide into the display. This women waited until you were halfway through the security line to call you back and make you measure the suitcase. So then you had to walk back through a long line and find yourself even FURTHER back in the line to get through security. She was so unprofessional- not compassionate, unpleasant attitude, and was all about making sure as many people as possible had to pay the extra $25 for a checked bag. The person I flew with is a military wife and you would not honor the free checked bag because her husband was not on the trip and this policy was not included anywhere on her flight documents. Again, the "customer service" reps were rude to her about this and she had to pay the $25 to check her bag. You do not believe in offering quality customer service or ensuring that we have a pleasant experience, you want our money and look to us as an opportunity to make a dollar. Never again!!!"
Pros: "I loved the comfortable seats, leg room and t.v."
Cons: "The check-in process was hectic. The kiosk tried to double charge me for checked bags tht I purchased previously online. I had to wait in a separate "additional services" line to be helped."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Now have to sleep in airport because connecting flight was missed. Terrible experience."
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Space boarding and flight"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Friendly steward, boarding staff very good , no delay"
Pros: "Excellent service."
Pros: "Everything else was fine"
Cons: "Not a lot of smiles"
Pros: "I survived!"
Cons: "Disruptive passenger should have been removed! The flight was delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "I got to where I wanted to go"
Cons: "I reached out to your customer support already about this, but haven't heard back. The departure time (for both legs of my trip) that was confirmed with my purchase from Kayak was incorrect and caused a major inconvenience. I'd very much like to receive a response. My email addres"
Cons: "The plane was delayed due to “maintenance” but no explanation was given as to why."
Pros: "Crew was professional and friendly"
Pros: "when at O'Hare, it was not a very long taxi to get to the gate"
Cons: "flight was delayed an hour; I felt very cramped in that small space for my seat"
Pros: "Plenty of leg room and very helpful staff"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for two and a half hours due to mechanical issues. Happy to know everything eventually was in working order, but didn't enjoy having my legs fall asleep while waiting"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Delay in departing, but seemed to make up time in the air and landed on time."
Pros: "Lower cost, but sacrifice comfort and amenities, flight attendants fine"
Cons: "Sat in row 26, nothing except bare bones service"
Cons: "Seats don't recline, have to pay for soda etc"
Pros: "Cheap airfare. Stretch seating option."
Cons: "Where do I start? Going to Vegas (from Chicago), we sat on the tarmac for 90 minutes with no explanation. We finally took off after that, and no attempt was made to regain lost time. In fact, the flight took even longer after we were up than the original plan. The seats were very uncomfortable. I don't know if the seats on the return trip had more padding, but there seemed to be a noticeable difference between the two flights, not just by myself, but noticeable in the lack of squirming on the second flight by everyone else as well."
Cons: "The plane had by far the most uncomfortable seats I've ever been in. They might as well have had metal fold-up seats. I paid extra for a specific seat, and when another passenger took it, a flight attendant gave me a hard time when I asked them to move. I was unaware that I'd have to pay $40 just for a carry on until AFTER I booked the flight, in which case I would've just chosen a better airline."
Pros: "Larger seating was available."
Cons: "Additional charge for carry on luggage. No entertainment and no "free" food. The adds on (seat/luggage/food) put the cost of flying with Frontier to the same level as the airlines that don't charge for additional "things"! So why wld you fly "discount " if in the end you pay as much...possibly more than the competition!"
Pros: "The only think we liked about Frontier was the fact it was on time, to and from. Also that we actually arrived to the destination both ways."
Cons: "What we didnt like is a much more lengthy list, the flight was cramped, the seats were most uncomfortable, the trays were ever so small, you had to pay for luggage and carry ons, pay for water and soda, when asked why we had to pay every time we turn around the flight attendant replied, "Thats how we make our money" wow! Not to mention how dirty and filthy the plane was both ways, dont people even clean them . Really bad experience, NEVER WILL FLY FRONTIER AGAIN!!!"
Pros: "I liked the price but class of service given.....i would gladly pay more. I arrived at the ticket counter at 9am to a line of people with 12 empty counters.We were told by other airlines and security that they open at 9:30.Finally some came at 9:45...and then only one person. Also by the time I added an additional 65.00 for baggage my flight ended up costing more than if I would have taken a classier airline."
Pros: "I have to say that the flight attendants were very nice and attentive! Much much better then the attendants from AA! We left on time and arrived early at out destination! Yes you guys charge for everything and the planes are old and not much seat leg room, but its expected based on the price! Over all a great flight for our money! We had the same experience on our round trip to FL!"
Cons: "The outrageous surcharges for seats and luggage and the incredibly uncomfortable plane ride"
Cons: "The flight was 7.5 hours delayed with little information on why. I was not aware that I would have to pay to select my seat as well as paying for carry on. These last minute fees were high and completed defeated the purpose of flying on a cheap airline. The crew was fine. This was the worst airline I have ever flown, never again."
Cons: "Surprised at how much we were nickel and dimed. Carry-ons cost $45 each. Checked bags cost $40 each. The crew seemed apathetic and exhausted. We were delayed an hour then sat on the runway for another hour before departing. No explanations were given either in the terminal or from the pilot. We will try very hard not to fly Frontier again if we can at all help it."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and they didn't have any more flight Ha for 6 days. So frustrating. Ended up paying $500 for a last minute flight on another airline."
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized, customer support seemed very unknowledgable at the check in counter, very disappointing overall"
Pros: "Flight was good and landing smooth."
Cons: "No beverages or snacks were offered. The flight was a late night flight and there was no where refreshments or beverages could be purchased, hence I was forced to fast for 6 hours."
Pros: "I highly recommend them, will use this airline again"
Cons: "Only thing that they wanted to charge extra for window seat and plane wasn't fully booked, otherwise the best service"
Pros: "Friendliness of crew. The crew moved me and my party near the front of the plan so that we could get off first in hopes that I would make my connecting flight."
Cons: "The plan sat in Denver for over 30 min. It was stressful wondering how I was going to make the connecting flight to Seattle. Seattle was late boarding. I am unsure if I will recommend to fly and fly frontier again because of this experience."
Pros: "Friendly crew, easy boarding, everything on time"
Cons: "Price of seats not included in ticket cost, but since ticket so cheap not really that big of a deal."
Pros: "It would have been nice to receive an email so I could make other arrangements!"
Pros: "Honestly the WORST experience ever with a flight. Angry Kayak doesn't post the cost of luggage and carry one with them. Flight delayed 5 hours for non existent weather, leading to 1 hour sitting on the tarmac because they didn't have a gate at the largest airport. Then, they destroyed brand new luggage."
Cons: "I hated the whole thing. Seats and tray tables are a joke"
Pros: "Easy boarding process"
Cons: "Extremely narrow and uncomfortable seats Dog wandering in aisle and under my legs while I tried to sleep"
Pros: "Airline attendants were kind."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable - I could feel the metal underneath the leather. But most importantly, I wish there was more signage about the baggage fee for a carry-on. If I would have known that I couldn't take a carry-on without having to pay for it, I would have checked my bag. I was extremely frustrated having to pay even more than the original fee at the gate. Because of this, I am never flying Frontier again."
Cons: "That I had to sit on the outside of the airport for two hours with no where else to go because ticket crews didnt arrive until two hours before the flight. pretty bullshit."
Pros: "Almost nothing about this flight was positive. I have to struggle to find something, but I can say that boarding wasn't too bad. Quick and organized."
Cons: "Everything else. To start, Frontier does not include any carry-ons with the flight, so either we pay $70.00 round trip for a bag or we have to shove everything we want for our trip into a "personal bag". We checked in about 24 hours before the flight and realized only after we had already waited in line for security that we needed printed paper boarding passes rather than using our phones (like every other airline). Luckily, we didn't wait until the last minute to show up, so we could go back, re-check in, wait in line for security a second time, and make it to our gate. Once boarded, things turned even worse when we realized that the seats on this Airbus were nothing more than very thin plastic with a very small amount of cushion, making the metal folding chairs from my youth seem preferable. In addition, while planes are not necessarily known for being comfortable, even the small conveniences of other planes were missing. These seats had no entertainment devices, terribly positioned armrests, a tray table that would barely hold my iPhone, no option to recline at all, and so little room ahead of us that my knees were pushed against the seat ahead of me. I was offered some respite when the flight attendant said that the flight was completely boarded but there were some exit row seats available. We were told that the attendants would "be happy to move you to a seat with a little more leg room and would be happy to swipe your card for the $50.00 charge". Really? $50.00 for an upgrade to an exit row? Generally, any flight I have been on will give a free upgrade or two if these seats are vacant. Nobody is there anyway, so why not offer them to give a sense of friendliness to your customers? You are not making any money on those seats anyway. On a roughly four hour flight, there were drinks and snacks offered, but their special was 2 cans of soda and a snack (peanuts or trail mix) for 9.00. Water, soda, and all snacks were an extra charge... Bottom line, this was a terrible experience with a terrible airline. If I have anything to say about it, I will never fly with Frontier again."
Pros: "We left on time"
Cons: "You have to buy drinks and snacks nothing is complimentary Seats are not reclinable (well mine wasn't) maybe b/c I paid $13 instead of $20 for it (ridiculous to have to pay for a seat, include it in the flight price)"
Cons: "Seats are rock hard and finding gate for frontier airlines takes for ever"
Cons: "Mechanical issue with the plane was reported the night before and not looked at until next morning after all passages had to be boarded. This caused all passengers to have to be unloaded and wait numerous hours before knowing if/when we were leaving. They passed out a handful of breakfast voucher then stopped until about an hour later they gave the rest of us our vouchers."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Ended up paying $16 for choosing a seat and 40$ for a cabin luggage. That's lame. Not to mention the 90 degree immovable seats."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "2 hour unexplained delay and no customer service at the desk to explain. Seats are so hard and I still feel the pain in my body Didnt drink anything since they charge you for everything after landing in ohare we were taxiing for an hour before we were let go. Also unexplained Never again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay, luggage prices. No better than spirit. Never flying Frontier ever again!"
Pros: "Airfare was good, flight was on time"
Cons: "Bag fee too high, online system confusing, craft not clean, tray tables too small"
Pros: "Very nice flight....flight attendants were very friendly and accommodating. NICE to leave on time and land early!! Lots of leg room. For a last minute ticket purchase I was certainly excited to find such a great deal. Definitely will fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Flight 33 minutes late leaving. Did not realize Frontier now charges for everything. My mistake but realized I could have flown on American for same price after all extras added to ticket by Frontiet. Not likely to ever fly on Frontier again."
Pros: "The low price of the fare"
Cons: "1. All the added charges even for a refreshment 2. The obnoxiously loud noises coming from the plane mechanics 3. A group of 5 that were drunk, belligerent, loud, and inappropriate 4. Lack of cleanliness (old tissues & trash stuffed in the seat pocket, trash on the floor, looked like throw up in our aisle-our entire aisle asked to move seats) 5. Stewardess speakerphone so loud It was painful"
Cons: "The lines to check a bag were outrageous and security check was the same."
Pros: "The price. Ok for short flights only."
Cons: "It is an Airbus, but a bus is more comfortable. The seats are hard and cramped. The base price may be great, but be aware they charge for extra for everything including carry-on if it does not fit under the seat."
Pros: "The flights were exactly on time, and the crews were very friendly. The boarding process was appreciated because people with carry on bags are allowed to board first, which helps with overhead compartment space."
Cons: "The hidden seat assignment and carry on baggage fees were unexpectedly high (at least $11 to get a seat and $30 for a carry on bag, both one way, and apparently both fees would have been higher if I had paid at the airport). I ended up paying $88 on top of the price of the ticket, which would have been nice to know for budgeting purposes."
Pros: "The crew is friendly and the flight was on time"
Cons: "You think frontier is saving you money? Think again, therms have hidden charges, upon check in you have to pay extra to be assigned any seat + your carry on to be placed on the top compartments it's also an extra fee"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful, I needed assistance and they were there to take care of my needs."
Cons: "How the airlines charges for everything except water."
Pros: "Not much..liked on this airline."
Cons: "Pay extra for seat Resv, coffee/soda, carry on bag, check bag(cheaper than carry on), and the seats are like sitting on boards. Never again, I'll pay the extra for United or even Soutwest."
Cons: "the baggage fees were extremely high. i would have paid a higher fare upfront knowing i didn't have to pay for my carry-on. i ended up paying an additional $90 for my carry-on! i also didn't like the fact that i had to pay more money to check-in online; i already paid for my fare, why do i have to pay some more? the seats were very uncomfortable, there was no wifi or entertainment on board during flight and you couldn't even get a free cup of water. EVERYTHING had a cost. the crew wasn't friendly, i wasn't greeted at either flight. i will neve fly frontier and i will sharing my experience with all of my family and friends."
Pros: "Positives - Very smooth boarding process, clean plane and early departure."
Cons: "If you don't have luggage, carry-ons, can wait to check-in (60 minutes at check-in line) and will bring your own food and water, this plane is for you. Very disappointed, I needed to pay not only for checking in a bag but to bring on a carry-on and to reserve a any seat prior to boarding. It added an extra $88 to my flight (nearly doubled my fare). They even charged for soda and water on the flight !!!"
Pros: "No good seats---no good padding--by the end of the flight I wanted out of the plane.Arm rests are a JOKE!!!no more flights on frontier."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "I was completely informed on the luggage charges from the time at booking to the email sent to me days prior to leaving. So my wife and I made sure that our carry on baggage would fit the sizes that are provided. There were no baggage charges and hassles. The plane actually left early and returned early, Thank you."
Cons: "It’s just Spirit and you just need to know what you are getting when you fly them"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Bag check in was scary. Got there an hour and a half early and it was like a zoo. Barely got to my flight group To board the plane. Paid for the first row seat.

I will never fly with them again under any circumstances! I hate this airline. I was thankful we landed safely after a very rough flight, that's about it. The upcharges are rediculous. Purchasing a card to pay for a carry on is fcvkin rediculous. I hate this airline"

Showed up an hour early and the line for security was very long. Got to the gate 14 minutes prior to departure and they had already canceled my seat and locked the door. There were 8 other people that it happened to as well. I thought I had come prepared to deal with their typical issues and take advantage of a cheap flight but ended up spending 5 times the amount to book on American. Stay away from this airline!"
