Cons: "the connection time between flights was NOT adequate especially considering I had to go through customs! AA did page me and had a representative (I think his name was Brian) waiting for me to help me get to my connection. He gave me a bright red/orange tag. I still hit some barriers. I was stopped in security and my carry on was put aside to be searched. It sat and sat . I explained to the man I had to go. He said he was working alone, so I had to wait. I was ready to leave it and just run to catch the flight, but the security man said I wasn't allowed to do that. He finally called someone else to search my bag (nothing found) I did make it...barely!"

Pros: "Read above"

Cons: "United have somehow managed to make their newer planes (777) even less comfortable then their old ones, I thought that was impossible but they found a way."

Pros: "The crew and the fact that they at least acted like they cared."
Cons: "After UA posted a four hour delay for my original flight, I switched to the next available 1.5 hours later. That flight got delayed and then delayed some more, and by the time I got to SFO, the flight I originally booked, landed about 20 minutes later."

Pros: "Food was great"

Cons: "I didn't go on my trip. My course in SF was cancelled and United would n't refund my money or change the dates for my trips because of there basic economy package. They have 3 different economy packages and the economy basic doesn't get refunds and you can't change the flights if needed. It feels like they are banking on increasing there ROI with this basic economy ticket which is 40 -60 dollars cheaper than the next economy package. Intuitively they know people will pick that, but if something comes up the customer is screwed."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Sardine can with no amenities. What value."

Pros: "I like that this flight got me from point A to point B. It was uneventful."
Cons: "I am tall and there is never enough leg room"

Pros: "There was a mechanical delay that caused us to leave 1.5hr late. The gate team did a good job keeping us informed of what was going on."
Cons: "Delay kept changing as they tried to fix the problems. Also, wifi did not work so I couldn't use free United entertainment via the app."

Pros: "Crew did a great job. Air China had much better food service."
Cons: "Seats two small, not enough room to stretch your legs. Bathroom to small. Designed for people less than 150lbs, and 5'-6" in height Not comfortable for people over 6' tall."

Pros: "Price was good. If it'd been an expensive ticket I'd have been upset"
Cons: "Pay for carry on luggage, last board plane despite having a window so everyone had to get up to let me in, no check in 24 hours in advance unless paying for baggage, in flight entertainment didn't work, seat charging outlet didn't work."

Pros: "Seats were comfy and I liked that the screens on the back of seats had a map of where we were in the flight."
Cons: "Wifi was kind of expensive- I bought 30 minutes for like $3- but it didn't even work. Maybe got 5-10 minutes of actual internet out of it, the rest was frustrating loading pages. Not worth the purchase."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Couldn't even get me a slightly better seat given all the hassles I'd been put thru up to that point."

Pros: "Flight was shorter than expected"

Cons: "United king of being delayed.."

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Flight delayed 11 hrs, they could not offer me an alternative to get me to my event in time so after five hours at the airport I had to return home. Their offer was "maybe" a refund and a $10 food credit. Out $500+ lost in hotel fees at my destination- which most importantly, was my ten year grad school reunion!"

Pros: "The flight attendant was really nice"
Cons: "Way too much money for the quality of first glass - I should have never upgraded, ancient."

Pros: "On time from Checking In and Departure"

Cons: "No on board entertainment unless you had your own device, which I didn't."

Cons: "EVERYTHING. My flight was originally scheduled for 650p. I understand that weather can cause delays. That's OK. However, the flight departure kept getting shifted. We ended up boarding for a 9:58p departure. I was told there was no more overhead space for my bag and forced to check it. When I got on the plane at 930p, there was clearly enough overhead room for my bag. I'm not sure why I was forced to check it. We then sat from 930p to 958p. We pulled away from the gate and then were told that we had to wait another 20 min. We turned off the engine and then waited until sometime between 1130-45 ON THE AIRPLANE on the runway. Is this even legal?? We finally took off and landed at 115a PST. I waited for 35 min for my bag that they forced me to check. They loaded our bags onto the wrong carousel, which caused all of us to be waiting for our bags in the wrong place for 10 minutes. This was the worst experience I've ever had flying. It wasn't the delay but the lack of clarity, being forced to sit on that plane for hours, and having my bag taken. I got to the airport in Denver at 550p PST and got home to SF at 3a PST for a 2 hour flight."

Cons: "Food was mediocre. Some staff was friendly, some was NOT"

Pros: "nothibg"

Cons: "The stewardess was very hard to understand in English."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Got to sfo early which I always appreciate"
Cons: "Boarding took about an hour because people didn't seat in their assigned seats and the flight attendants didn't notice until a family who had purchased seats together found their seats occupied. About 8-12 people had to switch seats, absolutely ridiculous"

Pros: "Left in time"
Cons: "The plane was so unbelievably hot. The air hardly blew out of the vents. Also, they left the lights on the entire time on a flight that left at 10pm and arrived at 12:30pm (11:30pm local time). It made for a very uncomfortable ride"

Pros: "There was nothing to like"
Cons: "Departed 45 mins late. Flight attendants too old, opinionated and grouchy for the job. Ground crew not any better."

Pros: "Free wifi, one free snack and drink, overall one personal item and one free carry on bag."

Pros: "I arrived safely"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "They didn't know how to handle the unpleasant situation of having delay due to "the plane is having some problems and they will try to fix it asap before departure"."

Pros: "Gate crew at Denver on May 2nd (afternoon) were just disorganized and confused. She was just stressed out for no reason. Seems like not a people's person and can't stay calm at ALL. Can't handle stress at all"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "After building in additional fees paid for seats didn't really cost less than competing airlines. No reclining seats. First airline where you had to pay for everything including soda."

Pros: "Wonderful service"

Cons: "Seriously, extra charge for a seat and carryon? Crappy plane, etc."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My layover went from 7hrs to 11yrs. Changed gates 3x. Communication was poor."

Pros: "Personnel were very polite and tried to be helpful."
Cons: "Our luggage was not loaded onto the plane. The lost luggage support at SFO was friendly but extremely inefficient."

Pros: "Great people"
Cons: "But no leg room"

Cons: "They lost my luggage, never filed my claim until two days and 3 people later, and I didn't receive my bag back until 4 days after and the delivery guy was mad at me because even though I told 3 different people my address and wrote it down before leaving the airport, they never told him."

Pros: "Friendly attitude"
Cons: "Should be an agent helping people in line at ticket counter. More ticket counter agents."

Cons: "Pay $2 for a juice? And $25 for a skateboard? Hidden charges suck."

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Everything."

Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "the low fares"
Cons: "the delays and carry on charges"

Cons: "Frontier doesn't lease enough gates. Waited 35 minutes after landing for gate to clear. Both flights. Frontier late in unloading bags. Waited 40 minutes at luggage carousel. Frontier lost my bag"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "trash airline"

Pros: "Inexpensive"
Cons: "Seat extremely uncomfortable for a person my height (6') and not adjustable in any way. Not a ton of leg room either, though not noticeably less legroom than other airlines."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The minimal interaction I had with the Crew suggested that they were nice."
Cons: "It was continuously delayed a total of five times. It was not explained why things were delayed. The spaces were cramped and the trays were small. Leads me to be interested in traveling in other "cheaper" airlines such as Spirit."

Pros: "Delay for too long. It took so long after landing! What are the ground crews doing?"

Cons: "Frontier charges for the most basic amenities that other airlines provide (non alcoholic beverages and carry-on luggage space)."

Cons: "luggage was lost seating very cramped had to rush to board, almost missed connection"

Pros: "Excellente"
Cons: "Excellent"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything. what has happened to frontier? wont fly them again"

Pros: "The bare bones frontier philosophy leaves nothing to like"
Cons: "Feeling like cattle"

Cons: "Delayed, no notifications"

Cons: "Boarding - people who sit up front go first meaning that those that have seats in the back have to go in past people who are still in the aisles arranging themselves. I could not get a drink of water without paying. Is it really that esxpensive to give a coke and some peanuts??? Paying for seat selection means that some people get in the seats other peoiple want (like window seats) who don't want them. I tryly believe that Frontier is the nickel and diming airline. And I don't believe you had to wait for a gate and 11:30 at night."

Pros: "That they got me to my destination safely."
Cons: "This airline is a joke. Shame on me for booking late and choosing the cheapest ticket. BUT knowing what I now know, I would have selected the Delta flight for $80 more. Here's why: No TSA Pre-Check. This aspects alone is a deal breaker. Pay for carry-on bag AND IT COSTS $40. Pay for beverages, snacks. Seats don't recline - "pre-reclined for your maximum comfort." Whatever Tray table is metal and tiny. You couldn't even fit an iPad mini on it, let alone a lap top. So, I put my MacBook on my lap to work, but it's uncomfortable, MacBook slides off. You're hitting the person next to you with your elbows. AND I have to take off my jacket, to protect my MacBook against hitting the metal tray table, so I got cold. No internet. It's 2016. No internet. It's 2016. Never again."

Pros: "Cheapest airline ever"

Cons: "No snacks no televisions on flight , even seats are worst ."

Pros: "seating too hard- need more cushioning"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable cramped seats that do not recline. The price does not reflect that you have to pay for everything, checked bags, carryon bags, snacks, soda's. No entertainment even during a 4 hour flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "This airline comes up with every idea possible to charge the costomer. I give the airline a star for being sneaky and sly and having rules and policies to rip off passengers. Because it is brilliant that they con you without breaking any laws."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Horrible service"

Cons: "Frontier nickles and dimes you."

Cons: "I will not fly Frontier again."

Pros: "Flying for cheap. Trays are too small"
