Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Precautions taken appropriate"
Cons: "Environmental controls, it was a little warm. Seats seemed more uncomfortable than usual. Air vents, lights, too far from aisle seats."
Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "Th plain boarding took much longer, we flew in circles above JFK, waited for a gate for us, then waited for all passengers with connecting flights to get off because we were late and that resulted in a VERY long process for the rest of us. The descent into the airport was also not the smoothest, but it was a smaller plane."
Pros: "The plane needed more leg room."
Pros: "Short flight and no problems."
Pros: "When my initial flight was delayed significantly, the gate agents went above and beyond to help me get on an earlier flight so I didn't get home too late."

Cons: "My screen wasn’t working. It would have been great if it was."
Cons: "original, non-stop flight was delayed by 6 hours; was able to get rebooked to another flight but was still 2 hours delayed and my bag arrived another 2 hours after me, ending in a 4 hour delay over all. paid for a non-stop and ended up with a layover."
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."
Pros: "Nice plane and super nice crew."
Pros: "The flight crew were really polite and helpful."
Pros: "Very good crew"
Pros: "The comfort the professionalism of the staff everywhere I went"
Cons: "Little pricey on rental and hotel."
Cons: "poor hospitality by cabin crews poor toilet smell, business class can smell the poor toilet if the door is opened"
Pros: "More room and comfort than American Airlines."
Cons: "The new "class of service" rules are really awful. "Pay for privilege" is terrible customer service."
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of snacks and drinks on such a short flight."
Pros: "Arrives earlier than scheduled, no wait time on runway taking off or getting to gate after landing. Rare to not have these delays occur in some form every flight...excellent"
Cons: "Nothing, the flight was a rare perfect 10/10"
Pros: "The flight left on time and landed 15 mins early. Staff was nice and attentive."
Cons: "The organization for boarding in zones."
Pros: "The flight from Dallas was on Wednesday the 8th of August. It was scheduled for a 32 minute layover, which turned into a 30 minute layover. My son, who I booked the ticket for, ran all the way to the connecting flight's gate. They'd already closed the doors, and wouldn't let him on. Consequently he had to be re-booked onto the next flight, which didn't leave until 2200."
Cons: "Did I mention that he'd taken a Greyhound bus to Dallas from Memphis on Monday the 6th of August? He got to DFW airport on plenty of time for his flight to Scotland. It should have been DFW to JFK to Glasgow. Delta cancelled his flight. Citing "weather issues." My family researched this, and couldn't find any weather issues in the North East or NY area."
Pros: "The flight attendants gave great service"
Pros: "Nice plane, comfortable accommodations, great crew."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Cons: "I was first in line for a 1st class upgrade. They didn’t upgrade me but when I got on the plane, the flight attendant randomly asked someone if they wanted to move to 1st class because of an open sest"
Pros: "It was a very easy boarding process and everybody I can across seemed to be enjoying themselves."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncomfortable and the entertainment was not readily accessible."
Pros: "The Delta desk attendant at CVG was unable to come up with another flight to get me from CVG to Colorado Springs on 6/13. There is nothing to like."
Cons: "See comments above."
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: "Great airline stewards"
Cons: "Suggestion- Overhead bin should be assigned to the seat the person is seated in."
Cons: "Pretzel mix was lacking in quantity and taste."
Cons: "SofinwS turned off for most of trip"
Cons: "We boarded on time and were ready to leave the gate early. Somehow the pilot and air traffic controller managed to take 1 hour for de ice and takeoff even though we were 2nd in the queue. No excuse!"
Cons: "Bullshit seating...will happily put frequent flyers next to the freaking toilets."
Pros: "Good service, more leg room than American Airlines."

Pros: "Just over 2hrs only. Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "A bit of turbulence due to weather (no fault of the airlines)."
Cons: "Delta should change their name to always delayed"
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."
Pros: "Enough said"
Pros: "friendly crew and staff"
Cons: "the unsheltered boarding in snowy and icy weather treacherous for those of us who are not so sure footed"
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."
Pros: "Wi-Fi was great. Watched two movies. Flight was on time and painless"
Cons: "Only complimentary snack was pretzels and only a cup of water."
Cons: "While my experience was excellent, I must acknowledge that the practice of charging significantly more for some seats is outrageous. I was happy with the (free) seats I had."
Cons: "Gluten free meal not provided as requested. Entertainment totally lacking."
Cons: "The snacks."
Pros: "The seating arrangement and the friendly nature and helpful service of the attendants."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Entertainment is good, polite staff"
Cons: "The food was horrid, the seats are short for leg-room, although this was American Airlines Operated by Cathay."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Food was so bad The seats were so cramped"
Pros: "Cabin crew were good. Their service was good. And quality of flight and food was good"
Cons: "My flight from dallas got delayed and hence I missed my flight to Bahrain from Heathrow. They hence booked me on a british airways flight, bt after i reached delhi, i did not receive my checked bags. I still have not received my checked bags"
Pros: "I planned a very affordable & organized trip, using KAYAK! Very satisfied so far!"
Cons: "The seating on the plane from the US to Heathrow... VERY uncomfortable!! The food was just ok... glad to be fed, though! :)"
Cons: "Seats a bit uncomfortable. The angled cubical is a bit confining. Seat belts are short so tough to roll over in the full sleeping position."
Cons: "Did not realize this flight was operated by American"
Pros: "The food was good and there was a great entertainment selection."
Cons: "The one calling out the group numbers was unnecessarily rude. Then when I couldn't pull up my boarding pass to see my seat number the woman at plane's door acted like they was nothing she could do to find out my seat. Luckily another flight attendant actually knew how to do something and cared about me getting to my seat. For the flight, the air quality in the plane wasn't good and they seats felt like small prisons."
Cons: "How can a plane be this cold?? I travel all the time, but I have never experienced this. It seemed like there was a general temp control - apart from the air vents. I had on a sweatshirt and by the end of the flight was sitting on my hands! Couple that with the “I don’t care” attitude of the flight crew, and I was counting the minutes to landing. Definitely not the AA that I’ve given my business to."
Cons: "Missed flight in DFW. All other flights full. Had to reroute thru Miami"
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "This new low life category where you cannot even pay to be treated like a human."
Cons: "Late , didn't make it on our flight back to Santa Ana"
Cons: "Had a mechanical problem and took us 30 minutes to take off"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Cabin crew"

Cons: "Seats tight and barely reclined, not clean, neighbor got sick no one attended to him."
Pros: "There was quite a large selection of movies. New releases to old classics. All free."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed by a few hours due to mechanical issues but they did give us free food and drinks once we were on the plane."
Cons: "Ct for. R"
Pros: "They gave us free headphones. The seat back entertainment had a large selection of movies to watch."
Cons: "Similar to my previous review, the crew treated the passengers like we were in the way of their travel plans. There were far too many interruptions during the flight that paused the seat back entertainment. Awesome that you have a credit card, but I don't need to hear about it 100 times during the flight."
Cons: "Seats that are smaller and more cramped than even the customary seats on domestic flights. The "breakfast" constituted yogurt and was served literally 42 minutes before we landed."
Pros: "Food and movies"
Pros: "They passed out headphones for the entertainment early in the flight. The meal service was efficient and more than adequate. The fight also arrived 30 minutes early."
Pros: "There were a lot of entertainment options, the seats were comfortable, staff was attentive, and two meals were included."
Cons: "Getting around London Heathrow was a pain and took a long time."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac after landing for 40+ minutes."

Pros: "Plane was brand new. Nice to flight in a plane like this"
Cons: "Unexpected changes in the boarding gate, not clearly notified"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No entertainment. Learn from TAM in Brazil and offer entertainment via smartphone / tablet. No food service."
Pros: "I was just happy to get a flight out early the next morning when my Thursday afternoon flight was cancelled."
Cons: "I ended up in a middle seat due to having to be rescheduled, but it was still comfortable."
Pros: "Got to my destination on time."
Cons: "Where to start? How about when I checked in at the counter, I asked the check in attendant to add my FF number on my ticket. They said they'll get right to it, handed me my tickets and sent me on my way. It never happened. Not a big deal, I can request the mileage post flight, but still something. Look at my tickets, that I had booked a week in advance and specifically reserved an aisle seat. My ticket says "Priority Verification," whatever that means. Turns out it means you don't have a seat, and you get the worst of the worst. So what seat is the worst? How about the middle seat in a row of 5. The middle in a row of 5, on a transoceanic flight... What kind of airlines has 5 in a row? The guy next to me spent $300 for his ticket, I spent $1200, for the same flight, and this is the kind of seat I get? The plane felt like it was straight out of the 90's, carpeted center walls, old seats, tiny tv's. Overall, a plane that felt had not been updated in decades. Took 20 minutes for a flight attendant to respond to the flight attendant sign. This wasn't during beverage or food service, just a normal time at cruising altitude. They also don't have eye masks. Every other transoceanic flight I've been on has them provided in the seat pocket, American Airlines doesn't even have them on the plane! Economy class has no USB or power outlets, the in flight entertainment is about a 5" screen in probably 260p resolution. Decent selection of movies, but you have to join the movie in progress or wait approx 10 minutes for the next movie to start. Legroom was okay unless you had one of the entertainment boxes in your way, then that takes up 30% of your space. Some of the tray tables do not have cup holders, on the top, bottom, or anywhere on it. Also my table was tilted, so every time I put a cup on it, it slid right off. Seems like a minor complaint, but eating dinner and fighting a sliding cup the whole time is a pain. Dinner and breakfast tasted decent, but you can tell American is cheap on the food. Most airlines will give something like a main course, a bread roll, fruit cup/salad, juice, small dessert. American gives you the main course and a fruit cup and that is all. Crappy utensils too. Overall, if I had paid maybe $200 for the flight, I wouldn't have any room to complain, but because American holds the government carrier contract for FY17, I had to fly on them at exorbitant cost, and would never recommend them to anyone."
Pros: "Great food, comfort, and smiles :)"
Cons: "in the gate the crew didnt let me took my only hand bag i have with my personel things including my medcian and cupe machine for brithing they say that my bag is big but itwas in the standert that i was allowed to take up to airplane i think the reason was i was the lat passenger to go in the air aplein and no space t o put the hand bag"
Cons: "Missed flight at london. Had to go to abu dhabi and Hyderabad. Very bad service"
Pros: "*Kosher* meals are always better than regular meals on AA. Served first and meals are fuller and of higher-quality (on AA, at least)."
Cons: "The selection of movies and tv shows was very poor. The plane was packed and the seats uncomfortable. The flight was delayed so we missed our connection and none of the staff could tell us where to go for more information.The worst international flight I've ever experienced."
Pros: "The upgrade to main cabin extra was worth the cost. Extra leg room, entertainment options, and room to breathe when the passenger in cent leans all the way back made a long flight more than bearable. The crew handled themselves and us very well."
Cons: "my luggage was lost between Dallas and St petersburg russia and I waited 5 days to receive it"
Cons: "Because it was a day later!!!"
Pros: "Almost half empty cabin made this a very pleasant flight!"
Cons: "Food on AA was mediocre as usual. Edamame salad was nice and fresh for a change. Desserts are now prepackaged wrapping similar to candy bar..."
Pros: "The food and drinks were great. Flight left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "This flight was actually on an American 777. One of the older models. For an almost 9+ hour flight, the in-seat entertainment systems need to be upgraded. The seats did not have USB charging capabilities, the selection of movies at the seat consisted of about 8 choices, and the screen size wasn't much larger than that of an iPhone 6 Plus. This was supposed to be a British Airlines flight, but it really was an American flight. I expected to be on a BA aircraft, which would have probably been upgraded."
Pros: "It served the function of crossing the ocean. The crew was kind."
Cons: "The airplane was outdated. It did not have personal entertainment suites at each seat. I haven't flown across the ocean without being able to choose my own movie in 3 years. Also, because of the outdated entertainment suite, the headphone jack is located in the armrest to the side instead of in the seat back in front of you. This caused me to bend my 3.5mm headphone connection at one point while I was moving my leg, because the connection jack is located below thigh level. The temperature was unbearable, and could not be controlled by the flight crew. Dressed for winter weather and roasted for the entire flight. I actually was dehydrated when we landed because I was sweating for 7 hours crossing the ocean."
Pros: "Crew, great. Flight smooth."
Cons: "Our equipment was a bit older, reminiscent of the plane featured in Die Hard 2: very 90's chic"
Pros: "World class"
Cons: "On time departure"
Cons: "More pretzels."
Cons: "When I tried too cancel the flight. No body answered or responded too my emails. So I had too loose the 500 I spent on the flight even though I paid for the protection! I wasn’t even on the flight!"
Cons: "The flight was three hours late!!!!!!! I had to get on and get off the plane with all my stuff. This has financial implications on the ground later that evening in Uber Cost and I had to pay for the additional day for my car because I was not able to pick it up at the originally scheduled time. I contacted United and have not heard ANYTHING!!!!! Please help me get my money back!!!"
Cons: "Over two hours delayed. Had to carry on carry off my bags that were heavy. Messed up my schedule. Had to incur extra charges at San Diego destination due to the inconvenience."
Pros: "Emailing me with updates"
Pros: "The flight was very affordable and turned out to be great. I love the new United Basic Economy seats."
Cons: "I hate that we can't bring two carry-on bags, but we were able to get everything into one. Our trip was short so we did not need much."
Pros: "Easy check in. Flight crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "My daughter's flight was delayed in DALLAS & in DENVER!!! We are never flying UNITED AIRLINES again!!!! Can they ever do anything right!!!! SMH"
Cons: "Cant turn it off. Want to sleep"
Pros: "No issues"
Pros: "Security was quick and efficient. Boarding was extremely organized. The airline attendants were attentive. The pilot on United informed us when the possibility of hitting turbulence occurred so we could adjust accordingly. Overall, great travel experience."
Pros: "Boarding and landing ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Generally it was ok. Travelling is so horrible these days that "ok" seems pretty great."
Cons: "My bag was lost but my husband's, checked at the same time, made it."
Cons: "Refused to delay connecting flight in Denver even though severL of where already on ground in delayed flight coming into Denver. Albuquerque flght was still at gate when I got there, having run through airport along with several others. We were refused admission to plane despite delay being United's fault. Unacceptable! I will avoid flying United in the future whenever possible"
Pros: "Flight was wonderful!"
Pros: "I didn't fly.I bought the ticket for my son. He had no complaints. You should ask in your questionnaire if the booked flight was for self or someone else."
Cons: "How they canceled one of my flights just as I landed at my layover for that flight when I look back at Boston they had a direct flight ready for my destination. Very poor management I was stuck in Chicago with no money or food for hours then after they start boarding for my new flight they tell me that I may not be able to get on even with ticket in hand. It was a joke and very stressful"
Pros: "Boarding was uneventful, but I wish I could have gotten a gate check....I;m 76 and getting my bag above the seat is difficult. But the gate attendant said there was no gate check on that flight."
Cons: "I had a center seat and that is very uncomfortable for me."
Pros: "Got there on time."
Cons: "Private screening does not work well. Very little kneeroom. No room in seat back pockets to put anything."
Pros: "On-time departure from Cancun but early arrival in Denver (relatively mild jet stream?). Otherwise, fairly typical United cattle carrier."
Pros: "The pilot apologized profusely for our delayed departure, and offered us free in-flight TV. He made up time, and we arrived only 30 minutes late (take-off was delayed over an hour)."
Cons: "Airplane went to the wrong airport and caused 3 hour delay . Missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "Suitcase arrived at the carrousel on time , much better than Houston."
Cons: "Delayed and got downgraded without refund of difference"

Pros: "Iam 53 not i to electronics much and to have no movue or music on the second longer flight is assinine most of the people o.n brd didnt have anything to do for the price i might as well just flown spirt and saved money"
Cons: "By removi g all inflyte movie and no hot food and no music your getting like Spirit. But cost alot more maby i need to go to them and just bring some food iam not electronics guy and most around me werent but a AM flight over 2 hrs should serve bot foid as well as a movie or at least have music to listen to"
Pros: "Use of my phone for boarding ticket"
Cons: "Sitting next to a large man who took 25% of my seat and space."
Cons: "My son ( a minor) was held over in Denver airport for over 12 hours because of delays and cancellations. Not once did your United crew or service workers offer him a meal voucher. This is absolutely wrong. This was my son's first flight alone and he also could not find any venders open to buy food. I will NEVER fly United again and will tell all friends and relatives about your inconsideration to minor passengers who are too shy to ask for help.!"
Pros: "United seems to be recycling which is a good thing."
Cons: "The obnoxious child sitting behind me. He kicked the seat and pulled on the tray."
Cons: "Need more leg room."
Pros: "Pilot was wonderful and did a fabulous job landing in the windy conditions."
Cons: "The flight attendant was dismissive and rude. The united terminal at DFW was terrible. Dirty, old and just plain disgusting. Craft was a bit run down and dirty as well"
Pros: "Instead of a 4 hour layover in Denver, I was easily able to get on an earlier flight to slc thank you to such a wonderful front desk agent. Even the crew members on board were so pleasant you could tell they truly enjoy their job and want to make for an enjoyable flight. Thank you United!! Will be flying with you again!!"
Pros: "Extremely friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment, but that is expected"
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Very rough flight but pilot did a good job of keeping passengers informed"
Cons: "Long wait on Tarmac and not being able to add my boarding pass to my Apple wallet"
Pros: "My flight home was surprisingly faster than I thought it would take and the entire time I was comfortable and relaxed."
Pros: "Excellent service."
Pros: "The crew members were welcoming and the cabin was clean."
Cons: "Only limited drinks were available and then the flight attendant forgot to bring the water I requested. Thankfully it was a short flight, so it wasn't that big of a deal."
Pros: "Customer service at Dulles was helpful"
Cons: "My trip was jacked up on both ends, starting with cancelled flight at 11 p.m. the night before, phone calls to United to change flights on the way out, and then maintenance on the way back home, which caused me to miss my connection in Dulles. Horrible accommodations, bad replacement flights, baggage service in Syracuse was dishonest and apathetic. All around bad."
Pros: "Nothing, because I did not fly"
Cons: "Due to some reasons I want to change the destination, but it seems to cost me an extra amount of 230$. I just cancelled my trip and I dint fly neither my amount is refunded"
Pros: "It got me to where I needed to go."
Cons: "I'm 5"10 and my knees were pressed into the seat infront of me. The chairs are plastic bucket seats with a thin layer of leather over them to give the illusion of comfort."
Pros: "I'm still alive"
Cons: "In purchasing the ticket from your website, the price does not reflect comparative like and kind price comparison. If a carrier charges for a carry-on, this should be displayed as part of their price and a buyer should not have to go through a drop down menu to find out. Further, when I arrived at the airport, there was no explanation of this charge other than the kiosk, where I was not required to purchase. After dropping off my bag with the front desk agent at the airport, I went through security with my personal item and carry on. When I get to the gate, I find out not only do they enforce this charge, but they actually raise 50% from the front desk to the gate and the agents had no absolutely no desire or power to give me the $40 price. When directed to their website to purchase, the site was unresponsive and I was unable to purchase at the $40 rate. I was forced, literally forced given the fact I wasn't going to be able to fly home otherwise, to pay the $60. This matter is going to the state attorney generals office in Texas and the Better Business Bureau. If that does not resolve, I will be working on a class action lawsuit so all victims of this price gouging can receive compensation."
Pros: "Great new plane. Comfortable seats"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The fact that you are charged for a drink is a bit much. Surely the price of the round trip ticket should cover a small cup of soda or coffee. And charging for a checked bag is crazy. I mean you have room allotted on these planes for baggage, & yet you charge a minimum of $30 to take a very small bag."
Pros: "My flight was delayed, but when it got there the staff was quick to get us in the air. Everyone was very nice."
Cons: "Paying to carry on a bag and for snacks."
Cons: "Late 21/2 hours waited another 30 minutes to shuttle inn"
Pros: "Plane in good condition and relatively comfortable"
Cons: "Was an hour late taking off"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant. The flight was the cheapest I found. The pilots on the round trip were very capable."
Cons: "The reason why it's so cheap is that they charge for everything. For some reason the site combined my first and middle name. I noticed when checking in and was prompted to change it. I was then showing a $400 balance even though I had already paid for my ticket months ago. I called customer service and they luckily updated it for me. The person then proceeded to tell me if I check a bag, bring a carry one, or want to choose a seat, there will be a charge. $60 just to bring a checked bag (27 lbs by the way) round trip. I opted not to spend even more money on the carry on and seat. I've seen other airlines charge for seats, but they're typically upgrades and you can choose another available seat for free. Not Frontier. If you don't want to pay the site tells you it will choose a seat for you. I don't know what the point of checking in 24 hours in advance is juat to be put in the last group no matter what. Speaking of seats, these were plastic, tiny, and uncomfortable. Speaking of uncomfortable, the plane felt like it was going to fall apart with even a hint of turbulence. Overall not great and I may have to go elsewhere for plane trips in the future. But that's up to Frontier."
Cons: "Slow to board, slow to take off, nickle and dime you for everything and anything. NOT a fan of frontier."
Pros: "Front ones were nice."
Cons: "These 2 ladies need another job. Customer Service is NOT in their vocab"
Pros: "The crew was fabulous as was the boarding process."
Cons: "The seats are terribly uncomfortable and no longer recline. There isn't any entertainment or food provided so hopefully you have something to occupy your time. My checked baggage surpassed the 50 pound limit and I was charged an additional $75 on top of the $30 checked bag fee."
Pros: "The pilot did a great job of landing in very windy conditions."
Cons: "I've been flying for many years, and I miss the hospitality of the free snack and drink."
Pros: "Easy boarding and great crew"
Cons: "NO back support in your seats - nobody seems to have it - you are not alone but I can't understand why airline seats are so concave, uncomfortable and bad for passengers spinal health"
Pros: "Flight was quick and cheap. Checked bag fee was reasonable."
Cons: "Carry-on bag fee was way too high. Personal item policy was too strict. Seats are not roomy enough for a larger person 6 feet tall or over. Seats did not appear to recline. Cabin was a bit hot."
Pros: "Smoothness of the flight. The staff."
Cons: "No snacks. Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "I like the new seats on the Airbus 319."
Cons: "I don't like the high prices for a drink. The fact that they don't take cash on the plane means it takes them forever to get drinks out."
Pros: "Services and very good pilot !!!"
Pros: "Helpful employees"
Pros: "The flight was kinda cheap, but I'll never fly frontier again."
Cons: "I could not make it on my return flight in time, but you still charged me for my checked bag! Which you DID NOT transport. I won't fly frontier again. Everything they could possibly cut costs on, they did! They even made the little tray on the seat backs about 1/2 the size. I couldn't put my laptop or my book on it lol. Might as well not put a drink on it either, because it would just fall off -- there was not a cup indention for the cup to sit in. Very dissatisfied. Won't fly with yall again. Sorry."
Pros: "Good flight. No issues"
Cons: "I was unaware Frontier had gone the ultra economy route like Spirit and started charging for Carry On and printing boarding passes. Should be disclosed up front, not after purchase."
Pros: "Okay price, but person next to me reserved after and was able to buy at half the price"
Cons: "Planes are old and not maintained well. Both flights were delayed due to airplane maintenance issues."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. They were funny, polite, and very professional. The boarding process was very smooth and quick."
Cons: "The seats are awful as they no longer recline and have very little padding making the trip seem exponentially longer than it actually is. Carry on prices are absurdly expensive ($45) at the airport for one little duffle bag that was barely too big to fit under the seat. Food and entertainment are no longer provided on short routes so you better bring something to do!"
Pros: "The crew was great. No issues getting on board and we arrived on time. No issues with the flight."
Pros: "crew was fine, but plane and seats were old"
Cons: "The whole process is a little deceptive. Thought I had booked an inexpensive flight, but by the time I paid to select our seats, ($35.00 each for a decent seat, even $1.00 for 2nd to the back), paid for luggage, paid for a coke, my total cost for two of us almost doubled."
Pros: "Smooth landing."
Cons: "The added charges for my self contained firearms."
Cons: "Flight delayed 5 hours had to pay for a ride to final destination. Because plane was late arriving in Denver the $ 50 travel voucher 3 month expiration was lame should gave 50 refund off ticket I understand things happen but voucher is a joke"
Pros: "We were delayed 4 hrs."
Cons: "4 hours delay which messed all the planning...they gave us food coupons which were not acceptable by many food places..."
Cons: "60 dollars to check a bag 35 dollars for a hard plastic seat that didn't recline."
Pros: "Seats were super affordable. Plane was new and nice. Flight crew was very professional. Overall really good experience. I will definitely fly Frontier in the future."
Cons: "The seats are really jammed together, and I am not a large person. The plane was an Airbus A319. Nice plane, but the seats were not very comfortable. Any flight over two hours would be unbearable. I am just being picky. No complaints really."
Pros: "Seats are uncomfortable and $65 fee for a carry on? That was more than the flight. No chance of me flying Frontier again. Just be honest and dont charge for a cup of water......"
Pros: "I liked the crew. And the flight was on scedule. Also, the flight had very little of turbulence."
Cons: "I don't like the fact the seats are so close and hard. And very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Flight delayed 4.5 hours for mechanical problems so we didnt arrive in Dallas until 340am. I understand these things happen but g'dam how bout a contingency plan Frontier"
Pros: "They got us there alive. Boarding went smoothly. Everyone was more than happy to exit the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "Not having flown for 6 months, we were not prepared for the nickel-and-diming that Frontier has become. The astronomical baggage fees were a complete surprise- they were nearly as much as our tickets. And why charge us for the same bags there and back? They charged for picking your seat, they charged for a soft drink,though we think they likely waived the fee for breathing their stale air. The staff, historically great, were short and clearly frustrated with what their roles had become, with looks that shared our incredulous stares of bewilderment. We used Twitter to voice our frustration and though they replied quickly, they said we could negate a percentage of the fees if we joined a new but obscure program... which of course charged us more fees. So sad to see our favorite airline reduced to this impractical, impersonal money-grubbing caricature of corporate greed."
Pros: "Basic seating was ok, but not comfort based."
Cons: "Finding out at the gate and not at counter (where we paid to check bags $30) that we needed to pay $45 per carry on. No this flight became an unexpectedly $200 more expensive"
Cons: "The plane was very hot inside, on the ground and in the air. The cost was more than expected. We had to buy bags. We ourcgased seats so we could sit together."
Pros: "Timeliness Clean Cabin Great Value Friendliness of Crew"
Cons: "Slightly cramped seating, but what I expected."
Pros: "FRONTIER took 25 minuts to get the bags onto the plane and 45 minutes to get our bags off the plane and to baggage claim"
Pros: "Not much you can do about the weather, but we were given very few updates and those we could barley hear."
Pros: "I could not checkin online or pay for baggage online. This takes time that might make someone late for their flight."
Cons: "They need to be more interactive via text email rather than calls and face to face."
Cons: "Too many children crying. Seats very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Fast and easy flight."
Cons: "One of the other passengers took my window seat. Didn't want to get a hassle to make them get up, so I didn't say anything."
Pros: "I like the low prices. Usually Frontier is on the cheaper side."
Cons: "There are a lot of hidden fees and rules and regulations. BEWARE! Luckily someone cut me a break since I had nvr ridden on Frontier. Most of the staff seemed a lil rude. The plane was super late. Frontier requires you to get their app if you don't want to print off you're boarding pass. This is the age of technology, why am I printing a boarding pass? Worst security I've gone through."
Pros: "Got there safe"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight, on time arrival and departure"
Cons: "They are smaller planes so it is a little cramped, but for the price"
Pros: "Getting a pre-board was easy, since I need a wheelchair in the airport. Having my seat changed to a window from an aisle was done by my wheelchair assistant, and made my day."
Cons: "My "bargain" flight wasn't really a bargain. All the extra charges made the price much higher. (the upgrade to a window seat would have been $35 if not for my hearing disability). And the seats were hard and flat. Is this the trade off for "lower fares"- being uncomfortable, cramped and thirsty during a two hour flight?"
Pros: "The flight was very inexpensive, so that makes up for a lot of things I didn't enjoy. You have to realize you are flying a budget airline, something that is newish to the USA. Europe has had them for a while and they are just the same, point A to point B, super cheap."
Cons: "Tray tables are tiny tiny, could barely fit my drink and a snack on it. Seats are not that comfortable."
Cons: "I knew I was going to miss my flight so I called Frontier to get on another flight that same day, if possible. They said a ten o'clock flight was available and then said they needed to send me to billing. After 10 minutes of being on hold they disconnected me. This same routine happened a SECOND time. By the time I called back a third, the flight I was trying to get on was full. I had to pay $300 to fly with another airline to make my appointment. Frontier only offered to accommodate me by reducing the cost of changing my flight from $110 to $75 and get me there a day late. Their customer service is the worst. I will avoid flying with them again, if at all possible."
Pros: "The flight was speedy, crew did not disturb my sleeping."
Cons: "Luggage and seating upgrade fees. Seemed to nickle and dime you a bit."
Cons: "We had a 2 hour delay in boarding and then a 20 minute wait at the landing gate as they were all full."
Cons: "Middle assigned seat"
Pros: "Smooth and without delays"
Cons: "Even after I told crew that I had my seat belt fastened, they made me stop reading and move my sweater aside to prove it to them."
Pros: "Absolutely ridiculous policy on making me go to a different terminal to get a boarding pass. Every other airline in the United States can issues electronic boarding passes these guys blocked me out 1 hour and ten minutes before the flight and said I had to go to terminal E counter to get boarding pass. I was at terminal A. Because I did not have boarding pass I could not enter through terminal A and use skylink I had to take the bus instead. That took 25 minutes. Then when I arrived at counter they said the flight was closed. And even though it was 25 minutes before boarding I was out of luck. The rude counter person said I should have been there 3 hours before the flight and now all they can do is reschedule for another day and it will cost an additional $100. Fortunately there were about 10 other people in a similar situation as mine and it became overwhelming for the counter people and they started issuing us tickets. This caused 10 of use to rush to security yelling we only have 10 minutes to get to flight. Fortunately all the people in line were understanding and TSA did the best they could but it still took time and probably stressed everyone out at security including TSA. This was just a money grab by Spirit airlines. Any other airlines an electronic ticket would have issued to my phone and I could have entered security at terminal A, caught skylink to Terminal E for my flight and been at gate 30 minutes before departure. This ridiculous policy of locking me out over an hour before the flight caused a great deal of stress to myself, the spirit counter crew, the TSA, all the other airline passengers waiting at security, and all the other spirit passengers who were gamed by Spirit airlines moneygrab. I intend to file complaints with Better Business Bureau, FAA, and Homeland security. This was totally unnecessary chaos!!!!"

Cons: "No charging devices very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and the airplane was very clean. The space underneath seats was roomy enough that I could easily fit my bag. Flight was very affordable, especially for a holiday weekend."
Cons: "I did not like that I was forced to create an account with Spirit to check in for my flight. I have never had to do that with any other airline, and the experience was frustrating. I also would appreciate if they would give water for free in flight. I understand their policy is to require customers to pay for extras, but water would be nice. There was also no explanation about which security line to get in when I bought the "bypass security" option and no one to ask when I arrived at security until I had gone through the full line. An explanation when the ticket is purchased would be helpful."
Cons: "They did not allow me to obtain a boarding pass 45 minutes before my flight. I was flying from out of town and was unable to print beforehand. I also was unable to get to the airport earlier so I was required to buy a flight through Southwest. Customer service was kind but only able to refund me a mere $7.31 for not allowing me to print the pass at the airport. I will not be flying Spirit in the future."
Pros: "Not much...on time."
Cons: "Deceptive about leg room on last 3 or 4 rows of seats. There was no way my legs (5'10") would fit in these seats for 2 hours. fortunately, the flight was not full and I could sit crossways, but that was also painful. $55 baggage charge is a total rip-off."
Cons: "did not inform the extra charge for carryon."
Cons: "That my bags are more expensive than my plane ticket"
Cons: "1st time using spirit got to counter check in 43 minutes till.. flight was closed. I wasn't aware of the policy"
Pros: "Reached my destination"
Cons: "The $55 charge for a carry on is absolutely absurd. No one should have to pay for their carry on; Spirit is the only airline that does this. If this was the only problem, then I wouldn't be so dissatisfied. The seating in the plane was very tight and uncomfortable. The boarding gate area was packed, and there was no place to sit and even stand to wait for the plane. I also found it astounding how there were no complementary beverages or snacks on the flight, and I had to pay for a drink of water. Every other airline on the dozens of flights I have been on gave us beverages and snacks for free. Also, there was no entertainment on the flight whatsoever. Not even a magazine or anything. Overall a terrible experience, and I will never fly Spirit again if possible, and will certainly not recommend it to anyone I know but will instead spread the word of the horrible airline company that Spirit is."
Pros: "polite crew"
Cons: "baggage limit of 40 lbs ticket agent with extremely thick accent no legroom no complimentary snacks"
Pros: "They suck so bad!!!"
Cons: "They just suck really bad!!!"
Pros: "Decent once we got on the plane."
Cons: "We were asked to step aside during boarding for accusations of being drunk."
Pros: "Love the flight attendants, they has an awesome sense of humor"
Cons: "A la carte can be a hassle but not enough to dislike the airlines"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable. seating. Pushing the Master Card thing, without fully explaining. Miles only good if u use thm quickly... Making Boston passengers get off plane & reboard. Trying to make me pay for a carryon bag.f"
Cons: "Why ask for a ratING on food and entertainment that don't exist?"
Pros: "Was able to get a flight on relatively short notice at a decent fare and without having to switch between carriers."
Cons: "Baggage restrictions and fees are absurd. Standard carry-ons are charged for (you can bring your one 'personal item' free of charge if it's small enough). A single checked bag is $51. Most carriers offer your first checked bag for free. Add $50 to your fare for a bag and see how competitive Spirit really is. No complimentary snacks or beverages---a soft drink is $3. Seats are very tight, unless you pay for an upgrade. Need to fly fast and don't need luggage, or expect basics like nuts and a cup of soda, then Spirit may be a cheaper carrier. Add the 'ala carte' items-like luggage-and the fare becomes average."
Pros: "From the beginning of my trip at DFW there was this very polite black assistant who help me get my ticket and a wheelchair all the way through my existing DIA.. The flight crew were also a lovely set of people..."
Pros: "Price was good. i ]will fly Spirit whenever possible and I will rnecomend often"
Cons: "Delay other than I did get a reminder ."
Cons: "pay for everything? that is just absurd. the airline tickets weren't cheap enough to make up for it."
Pros: "I liked that they got us there safe."
Cons: "They nickel and dime for everything. I bought the ticket thinking it was the cheapest option. After all is said and done, they were not the cheapest option at all."
Pros: "The effenciency"
Pros: "Safety and crew."
Cons: "Lacking comfort"
Cons: "Trying to load a bag that is accepted by any other airline for carry on cod not carry on an had to pay 50 plus dollars and have spent several hours trying to get a fee paid for return trip at a rate of 32 dollars. This airline is bullshit"
Pros: "Cost savings"
Cons: "Carry on/ baggage fees"
Pros: "The comedian crew member on this flight was absolutely my favorite part of the trip. He was entertaining and incredibly positive thru out the 4.5 hour tarmack stand still. His charisma and wit kept most of the passengers and crew members on point. He was just a happy go lucky guy with a good heart. Kudos to him!"
Cons: "Mother Nature was not kind and the humans closed down the Denver airport, avoiding any threatening interactions. It was most unfavorable being stuck on the tarmack for 4.5 hours, being charged a lot of money for crumby snacks, however I am grateful that I am still alive and did not have a more tramatic plane experience (aka a crash landing accident due to lightning). Over all, it was a pain in the butt, waiting to hear about updates (taking hours at a time to decide), and then getting redirected from Colorado Springs to Denver on a bus. My friend whom was picking me up from the airport was inconvenienced as well, but we tried to be positive about the whole experience. I don't ever want to fly with Spirit again, but because it was so inexpensive, I just rolled with the punches. You get what you pay for..."
Cons: "Did not do final leg"
Pros: "Worst flight i have ever been on"
Cons: "i will never book with them again"
Pros: "A voucher for a free flight. My husband and I were both stuck in this fight and now live, at 4 am, are driving around trying to find somewhere to sleep that isn't sold out."
Cons: "No organization, preparation for this kind of event. No assistance in finding lodging. No offered compensation for the 13 hour blunder."
Cons: "This second leg of my flight to Denver was cancelled due to "inclement weather in Denver". They did not offer another flight for two days. I rebooked myself on a different airline and was able to get to Denver that night with no weather issues. The total cost was way to much."
Cons: "They cancelled it, no reason, no voucher to stay around till have next flight."
Cons: "Payment for drinks"
Pros: "Nothing - will never fly Spirit again"
Cons: "Their website check-in if horrible, you can't call a real person for help not can you get chat help, their email response time in case of a problem is 48 hours, the seats are so uncomfortable, you need pain killers, and after paying for carry-on bag and seat assignment, it was no bargain. A horrible experience - don't fly Spirit!!!!!!!"
Cons: "they charge you for everything. They say they are making you a deal by giving you a cheap flight. but charge you for carry on and personal items. and charge you $4for a tiny water.They are a bunch of A-hole. And I will never use spirit again"
Cons: "It was the same thing. Almost got charged $100 to carry on one of bags which I had already carried on the other flight."
Cons: "Bags never arrived and we were promised a phone call that evening with an update, which never happened. No sense of urgency from baggage staff."
Pros: "The flight was on time this time! Pilot did great through the storm and we had minimal turbulance"
Cons: "The seats are awful. I'm fairly short and I had no leg room at all."
Pros: "Quick k and easy."
Pros: "Check in at the front desk was awesome. They were very helpful!"
Cons: "We sat at the gate on the Plane for 2 1/2 hrs because maintenance and paper work on tha maintenance was not completed."
Pros: "Boarding was good."
Cons: "Smallest seats I have ever had on a plane. It cost more for my luggage to travel than it did to buy my ticket."
Cons: "It was terrible and I didn't get there the airline sux. Will never fly it again."
Pros: "It got me there"
Cons: "Yes it is a budget airline. But being an hour late getting there due to a delay and the. taking 30 minutes to taxi to the gate when we landed is bad for any airline. And they need to do something about the leg room on the seats. Budget airline or not, people are taller than what they evidently think."
Pros: "The good price and straightforward process"
Cons: "The delay but it happens"
Pros: "efficient boarding and very nice flight attendants"
Cons: "there were no backseat rest to place laptops but just a small piece of metal. no reclining"
Pros: "Flight was delayed too many times. Ended up taking a vehicle to my destination. Got there faster"
