Delta terminal 2 gate 24B would not allow us to board the plane 3 minutes after main2 zone was called. We were forced to take a flight 4 hours later, waiting at the airport. And the female check in lady at the gate was rude and completely unhelpful. Delta service is poor at LAX

Pros: "The crew did a good job in announcing the arrival of the flight and where we are at and how far we are flying overall did an excellent job"

Cons: "The wheel to my luggage broke off in deltas care so if that could have not happened it would have been way better."

Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Not delayed"
Pros: "The crew on both legs of our trip were nice and accommodating."
Pros: "No food, late by hour"
Pros: "Crew"
Pros: "Fact that there’s a flight available to get me-from a to b, Crew were friendly-great, cabins clean."
Cons: "Expensive, Delayed flight, unable to hear and understand boarding announcements, No WiFi, and a magazine that caters to the top 5% of passengers. Then to top it off a lost bag and over 2.0 hours spent either on hold or awaiting a call back to resolve issues with my last bag-totally unacceptable"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No drink/snack service because of shorter flight times."
Cons: "Better accommodation for handicap passengers."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable but crowded. Was nice to have the built in screen for entertainment."
Cons: "Did not like being bumped to a flight with a five hour layover in SLC. Travel day was already very long. We booked the flight originally based on the shorter layover of an hour and a half. Seemed very inconsiderate."
Pros: "Crew was great (once they arrived)"
Cons: "1.5 hour delay added 5+ hours to our travel day. Not fun..."
Cons: "The check-in process was abysmal. The crew gave poor guidance delaying my ability to check in my bag, then refused to check it. They then told me to cancel my skymiles flight and purchase a new ticket. I was able to check my bag at the gate. Show up 2 hours before to account for their incompetenc"
Pros: "food and service was amazing"
Cons: "delay in seattle caused a loss of a whole day of my holiday. VERY UNHAPPY"
Pros: "Short and easy"
Pros: "The bag service"
Cons: "The flight delays"
Pros: "I like the efficiency of the boarding process & the courtesy of the crew."
Cons: "Small overhead bins. No entertainment facilities on the seats. Although I wasn't expecting a movie for an hour-and-a-half flight, at least the airplane should have amenities to provide music so that passengers bringing their own headphones can listen to some music."
Pros: "I was given an upgrade to a exit row seat so I could stretch out which nice since this was a connection from Sydney so I’d been flying for 14 hours already. The entertainment was excellent and the inflight messaging was wonderful. The staff was friendly and helpful. And the biscoff cookies are amazing."
Cons: "The seats need a cushion."
Pros: "Super friendly flight crew."
Pros: "Leg room and seats are very tight and I'm a small person."
Cons: "Coach class is very crowded."
Pros: "Everyone was fairly friendly"
Cons: "Cramped foot room"
Pros: "Jamaica security and boarding, despite a crowded airport and gate, was very quick. Appeared chaotic but was friendly and efficient. Boarding was orderly and efficient. Flight was smooth, seats luxurious (comfort+ aisle and window seats with an empty center!). Arrival into ATL half an hour early."
Cons: "Only one offer of beverage on 3 hr. flight. "Food" at dinner time was chips or crackers. Arriving 1/2 hour early we sat on tarmac for 50 minutes before reaching gate. 20+ minute walk to customs, 30 minute line."
Pros: "I like the snacks they are not giving out on the flights. It seems that Delta is trying to make the flying experience nicer instead of more tedious and uncomfortable like many other airlines, which is appreciated."
Cons: "The flights were both operated by Delta but booked through WestJet, and the flights themselves were fine. The booking was through WestJet (found the flight on kayak which kicked me over to West Jet's site) and check in was a pain. Their code did not work for their site or Delta's, I had to FB message them both leaving and returning to ask for the correct one, and the first request took them hours to answer. I'll just book Delta next time and save myself the trouble."
Pros: "Quiet, friendly, fast and efficient. What you'd want for a flight at 6am"
Pros: "I missed my flight and was not able to rebook any of it, losing 600 dollars..."
Pros: "Good selection of movies/shows."
Cons: "Flight was delayed half an hour due to “medical emergency”. Guy passed out as we were about to take off so we turned back to the gate and sat on the plane for over 30 mins while we waited for medical personnel to check the guy out. Then had to wait another 15 mins for the fuel truck to refill us because we had burnt so much sitting there. I understand that we had to turn back due to his condition but why was he not removed from the plane and put on a later flight when he felt better instead of making all of us late? You would think after all this the crew would be kind and appreciate our patience but 2 of the flight attendants were the exact opposite of that. Both of them were very short with people and the one kept rolling her eyes at people as they were handing out drinks. The only thing I would give 5 stars is the tv entertainment. My seat wouldn’t even recline for me to enjoy though."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The boarding didn’t take long at all. The staff and crew were very pleasant and polite. Everything was done in a timely manner."
Cons: "Well you get what you pay for so I’m not really complaining here. The economy seating was a bit cramped. I’m 6 foot and it was not comfortable for me. I can only imagine how it eould be for people taller and bigger than me. Flight was too short for meas. Snacks were good though."
Pros: "It all went very well. Arrived 20 minutes ahead of time. Wifi movies were great. Stewardesses were very efficient."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cancelled my flight because I lost one of the arms"
Cons: "To be clear, I do not have an issue with overweight people. That being said, I was put in an extremely uncomforatable position on this flight. My seatmate was a woman who easily weighed 400 pounds without the slightest exageration and was 5'7 at best. She carried all of her weight in her midsection and behind, which was truly uncomforatable for us both. As she attempted to squeeze into the aisle seat it became apparent that with the armrest down it was not going to happen. She raised the armrest and finally maneuvered into her seat and part of mine also. Not only was her bottom in my seat but her stomach was resting on my entire right leg. It felt like a toddler was sitting on my lap. This was beyond uncomfortable and embarrassing for us both as it was clear that she knew how intrusive this was and kept apologizing. My leg went to sleep after about 15 minutes so I asked to be let out. I approached the flight attendent and requested that my seat be changed to which she responded that the flight was full. I know it wasn't because I could see an empty seat about four rows in front of me. Finally I sat back down but every 15 minutes or so she would get uncomforatable and get up to stretch. The first time it was a welcomed break, until she came back and flopped in her seat with so much force that it felt like someone had ran and jumped in my lap. This occurred 4 or 5 times during the flight. I am not sure what the policy is for obese passengers, but it should be relooked. As a passenger I should not be put in a position to address another passengers weight. I also should not have to pay for a seat and only get to use 2/3 of it. Lastly, no one should ever be allowed to put their body parts on top of another persons lap and that be considered ok."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic. I generally love flying Delta and find their crew to always be very professional and kind."
Cons: "As this was a smaller, regional jet, there weren't a lot of amenities. But that's fine, it's only a 40-minute flight!"
Pros: "Staff were awesome. Give them a raise."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Condition of the airplane"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Too short of a layover in Atlanta"
Pros: "The aircraft was new and most flight crew were nice."
Cons: "Way too many useless announcements by the copilot and the lead flight attendant. Keep it short. Don't get back on once you put the mic back. And how about announcing th baggage claim carousel if your going to interrupt as much as you did."
Cons: "Was never able to get on flight. The plane lost a windshield wiper and didn't have any spare parts."
Pros: "On time Clean airplane Smooth ride Friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "I'm not sure if this staff is exhausted or just over there job, but they cow towed to a woman who made major complaints about the air conditioning and even gave her points to help her deal with the temperature. Strange. They were only gold stays and I'm only Platinum and didn't complain once. Oh well, that's delta, we all deal with their silence when we post anything that is unfair."
Cons: "I purchased my tickets about 5 weeks before my trip and got to the airport 2 hrs prior. I recieved no seat assignment, just a boarding pass that said request seat. So I requested a seat. Then the people were rude and told me to come back, so I did about 45 min later and asked again, they were rude again and said come back later. The third time I got s seat assigned but again, they were very rude. Won't fly delta again."
Cons: "No entertainment - just a long boring flight. Should have some sort of entertainment for the longer flights."
Pros: "Organized and smooth"
Pros: "Seats in Delta Comfort section were quite nice. Flight attendants were extremely nice, attentive and helpful. The sandwich I purchased was tasty and a pretty good value for airline/airport food."
Pros: "Flight crew were excellent and very helpful with my kids."
Cons: "When I arrived at my destination, my bags did not make it with me. When I called in the morning, they said they would not be out for delivery until 11:30 am and had a 6 hour delivery window. I told them to hold the bags and I would pick them up myself."
Pros: "The check in personnel was fantastic - very helpful and friendly with a very relevant story that made me feel more relaxed. Our not so good seats were somewhat compensated by the plane staff that gave us each a full beverage can, extra pretzels, and some cookies."
Cons: "Our seats that we'd picked out seemed to get changed when we checked in and we got out in the last row, which had no window, and smelled strongly of bathroom cleaner."
Cons: "Not a lot of leg room"
Pros: "Cormfortable and brief"
Cons: "A screaming spoiled three year old that started acting out in the boarding area and progressed to screaming for things at the boarding gate and didn't stop until we were almost there. At the top of her lungs screaming!! This was no child with ear issues, this was a child with parents that don't say no! Bad towards the front, I can't imagine how it was for the poor people seated in the back. Geez!!!!"

Everything was ok , .

It, like most of our other flights was delayed significantly. However, since my 1st flight was delayed, it worked out for us, as we wouldn't have been able to catch this flight if it had been on time.

Pros: "Friendly and prompt attendants."
Cons: "I couldn't ask for anything more from American than what was provided"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Connections great"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Miserable all around experience"
Cons: "The flight delay was not reported correctly until 30 minutes before expected departure. The baggage carousel stopped running after already being more then a hour late. No members present to rectify. Absolutely terrible trip"
Pros: "Short, sweet and great crew."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Nothing evething is ok"
Pros: "The crew was incredibly attentive and helpful."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "God knows how long we sat in the plane on the tarmac. I fell asleep! Totally missed my tour at the Airplane boneyard as a consequence. Way to go AA. You truly suck!"
Pros: "Whole row to myself. Greqt movie, in early and informative pro of a captain."
Cons: "Americans lack of competence caused me to miss this floght"
Cons: "I already complained about the lateness of airlines. So it all still stands"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "You could have been on time. You could be accountable. You ruined my wife’s 40th birthday by failing to fulfill you’re end of the deal."
Cons: "Less passengers or bigger plane means more room. Everything was perfect except for being uncomfortably cramped."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "The entertainment center in the headrests"
Cons: "Switch planes and make that the one that flies between Phoenix and Orlando...the entertainment cent on the shirt flight with 3 kids was better suited for the long flight"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, considering the late flight & full plane."
Cons: "Took forever to get the bags"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Baggage was not that faster but was still okay Although improvements will be great"
Pros: "Overall decent, standard AA experience."
Cons: "If you’re used to Main Cabin Extra, you get easily tricked by the red trimmed seats. The gentleman in front of us was. Also, Tucson airport baggage delivery was D- as usual. Slow and only partial regard for priority tags."
Cons: "I am glad I am still alive"
Pros: "Loved the interactive headrest system. Games, movies and more. Kept me so busy that the trip seemed like minutes instead of hours. Very comfortable seats!!"
Cons: "Tight squeeze down the aisle and heaven forbid you drop something while seated because you pretty much had to put your head on you neighbors lap to get it."
Pros: "Would fly again- irritated at how does a flight manage to get overbooked"
Cons: "Flight was 3 seats overbooked, they had to wait until 3 people willingly took a later flight. Like a game of chicken between 100 people."
Pros: "A comedy of errors that really wasn't funny. My poor elderly parents are exhausted by what should have been an easy non-stop flight in good weather."
Cons: "The service and equipment problems."
Pros: "They rerouted me so I at least salvaged some of my trip."
Cons: "They rerouted me for no reason making me miss my reunion."
Pros: "Once we were finally on the plane everything felt comfortable and looked newish."
Cons: "DO NOT FLY AVIANCA IF YOU HAVE ANYWHERE YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO GO! The flight was delayed by 7 hours. We were told different stories Time and Time again by the ground crew. Either the plane was on the way or it was turning back, or it had landed or was perpetually 20 mins from landing. At one point, they did slip and admit that they actually had no way of actually tracking the plane, so everything they told us had been wild guesses about what had actually been happening! When some passengers asked to speak with a manager, we were told that the manager was not accepting calls at that time. After hours and hour and hours of delays and lies, they finally found a plane, but we still had to wait an hour for a crew as the original crew was now over their time limit. Once we were airborne, the flight was smooth and the newly cobbled together crew was nice. Zero mention or promise of reparations for the massive delay. AGAIN, DO NOT FLY AVIANCA IF YOU HAVE ANYWHERE YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO GO!"
Cons: "Bought 2 tickets but seats weren’t together poor service"
Pros: "Despite numerous delays, we made it to Philadelphia. We were alerted to the delays in a timely manner. We were also treated to a snack cart and cupcakes to celebrate the first day of direct flights."
Cons: "A long delay. Patience is everything and the staff and crew were very friendly."
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."
Pros: "The help on getting on the plane and the pleasant staff on the flight"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Staff and Entertainment"
Cons: "Back row, but someone has to sit there :)"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible parking, had to book a later flight an extra 75.00 for my bag."
Pros: "Crew was able to switch our seats so that we had extra space since we were traveling with lap infant."
Cons: "Plane was new, but small for an international flight. We traveled with an infant and there was no bassinet."
Cons: "Food, connecting flight long time waiting"
Pros: "Entertainment, food and smooth flight."
Cons: "Did not like Early boarding with known mechanical problems, waited for almost 2 hours inside aircraft before taking off. Crew okay but could be more courteous."
Pros: "Today's trip.was ontime with a great crew. A big turnaround from our last trip."
Cons: "Zip"
Pros: "Got to my destination..."
Cons: "Seat was tiny. Felt crammed in there. I'm just 6ft tall, but couldn't even use the headrest...it was a back rest. No individual inflight entertainment on a 3 hour flight? I've had screens in front of me for hour long flights. Left 30 minutes late with no indication as to why. Just one of the most uncomfortable flights I've had in a long time."
Cons: "Tsa is very unorganized and extremely rude."
Pros: "Seat next to mine was free. Ice cream was good."
Cons: "The crew looked sad at best, angry at worst. Never smiled. It looked like they felt like they were in bondage, not rude but very much like they hated their jobs. Two flight attendants were obese, the rest were just overweight, all but one unkempt, sloppy, washed out. Worst looking crew I've ever seen. I think they belong in another field. No inflight film after many attempts to re-boot system. What has happened to American Airlines standards, they used to be so high?"
Pros: "This leg from PHX to TUC, the AA staff did GREAT. They held the last flight for about 10 of us (the last one of the night). Were pleasant and professional."
Pros: "Finally had power outlets. 1 for 3. First class crew great."
Cons: "Didn't honor priority luggage tags. Small seats for 1st class."
Cons: "2 hours late. Kept moving the boarding time by 10min"
Pros: "Once I managed to get to my connecting terminal which was an adventure in itself, the original plane we were to fly on was having maintenance issues. The ground crew worked quickly to get a different plane and moved us to an adjoining terminal."
Cons: "LAX. The airport is just a pain with long lines for everything, although staff try very hard to help you get where you need to be"
Pros: "Leg room Kind stewards"
Cons: "No gluten free meal options"
Pros: "After missing my flight and zero empathy from AA employee who reassigned a new ticket - I was given 3 new times and an explanation that no pilots were there yet. Flight was short and painless -- but the scheduling was totally frustrating."
Cons: "Everything was just perfect .. on time , friendly faces, great attitudes, very helpful . The fight was wonderful ."
Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, energetic, educational and very helpful"
Cons: "Des moines airplanes seem to be the left overs. Old and outdated."
Cons: "The automatic machines wouldn't check me in. The lazy who checked me in manually have me wrong information about my luggage. The affect on the Mexico side have me MORE wrong information about my luggage. Ultimately, my luggage was lost. Still waiting for them to find it."
Pros: "At 10 pm no one would help to get a room to spend the night. No vouchers. No help for a mother with infant. Had to find hotel on own."
Cons: "See above. Horrible. Absolutely horrible experience."

30 min to get luggage at SRQ! This not what we are paying for.

Everything went splendidly

Over an hour wait to get my checked bag.—Can’t they do better than that?

Pros: "Boarding was easy, there was sufficient leg room"
Cons: "No snacks unless you want to pay an arm and a leg. One stewardess snapped at me when I tried to touch a bag of chips to move it and see what was available. She could’ve been a lot friendlier! I had no way of seeing what was on the cart from my seat and had to rely on her to tell me what was available. After I bought something and she passed by, I saw something else I’d rather have but it was too late by then….and she didn’t list it as an option. In flight movies would’ve been nice, too."

My only real issue was that when I booked this flight through Kayak, I somehow booked via BudgetAir.com (though I was on your website.) Due to this, I was unable to access boarding passes coming or going via the Kayak app, or the Allegient app. Luckily I was able to print them prior to leaving home (and the resort printed them for on the way back), but using this site is definitely something I'll have to consider for my trip. I should have been able to access boarding passes electronically via the app regardless.

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Delays are a thing with allegiant. This time 4 hrs., previous to that 2 hrs, messy boarding, staff is unfriendly both in McAllen and Sanford. Total mess."
Pros: "No seat not comfortable."
Cons: "No legroom."
Pros: "The crew was super nice and helpful. They made an effort to answer any questions the passengers had. They made the flight home very enjoyable. I plan to fly with Allegiant again."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Give complimentary water"
Pros: "The passengers were spaced out, so we could actually social distance."
Cons: "Not all passengers wore masks. During a contagious pandemic. What the actual hell? Also, the tray tables are too small to use for anything, and we didn’t even get a free drink. Water and soda are so cheap, it’s absurd. I’d never take Allegiant again if they weren’t basically the only airline operating out of my town’s small airport."
Cons: "Great price. Wonderful flight. Seats are so close knees touched the whole flight."
Cons: "The boarding process. And how the flight attendants speak to the customers; I found a bit abrasive and insensitive for no real reason."
Pros: "Fast boarding, early arrival"
Cons: "Snack offerings"
Cons: "Late to load and then put us all on the plane and made us sit on tarmac for over 1 1/2 hours"
Cons: "Free beverages"
Pros: "There was nothing outstanding really"
Cons: "It’s a low cost airline, so expectations are very low. Plane was very dirty because it just keeps on hopping back and forth without any cleaning service it seems"
Pros: "Crew food. Seat small little leg room."
Cons: "Plane on time. More leg room."
Pros: "Great crew. Good on-time flight (early, actually). Smooth boarding."
Cons: "Standard no-frills gripes. Seat is tolerable but basic, no recline. No power, zero inflight entertainment, etc etc. They won't even give you a sip of water for free, which is just absurd in my opinion. They did give me a free cup of ice... so I guess ice + time = free water..."
Cons: "No hot coffee on 7:40am flight. Not right."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Allegiant knows how to get people off and back on the plane ASAP. The last few flights I have taken we left early and arrived earlier than planned because of this. Crew was friendly. I like the fact the flights are direct and no layovers at airports."
Pros: "Boarding is always a pleasure out of Provo, with no security wait and a pleasant crew. The plane we took was a newer model, and is similar to many Fronteir and economy Delta planes. Unfortunately that means that even a short one-hour flight leaves pains."
Cons: "Our ride was very turbulent, whether that’s due to weather or pioloting I’m not sure. Either way it would have been wonderful to have a free cup of water. Sat for de-icing for about 20 minutes before takeoff."
Pros: "Crew friendly and professional"
Cons: "Everything is extra, even water or soda. Seats are narrow so glad im not a heavier person"
Cons: "I dislike their pricing structure."
Pros: "Stewardess moved me to a more comfortable seat without me asking."
Pros: "They gave us a soda in the waiting area, because we were so delayed. Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed about 2.5 hours, with no explanation or information given. Loading was extremely slow, hot, and uncomfortable."
Cons: "5 delays between for a 4:27PM flight that eventually took off at 3:15am. My biggest issue is the unrealistic delay that could have left us in the airport for 11+ hours. Very thankful that they did allow me to change departure locations to another airport at no charge. That flight went well, even arrived early."
Pros: "The flight was delayed for almost 4 hrs, but the staff was excellent. From the check-in agent, the gate agent, the flight attendants and pilots - everybody was upbeat and helpful."
Cons: "Just the continual delays, but the mobile notices were so helpful in not coming to the airport for a delayed flight. As always, the fact that the seats don’t recline makes the trip more uncomfortable."
Cons: "I am so angry booking with them. I booked the flight and then thought, ok I will add a rental car. It said clearly that the rental Car could be canceled up until 24 hours before the flight. Well, 2 weeks before the flight, my friend said, don’t get a rental car, I will have my car. So I cancelled and only then did I find out that once I booked it through their site I could not get a refund for the car and I could only get a voucher for use on one of their flights! And only after they take out any fees and costs that was accrued! So angry!"
Pros: "Airport and onboard crew were nice."
Cons: "It was myself, my wife, and our 18 month old son. The trip was a complete disaster. The first delay was from 12 noon to 7:30 pm because the plane was unavailable. We left the airport and returned at 6 pm for the 7:30 pm departure. The plane was "available." We checked our bags, found our way to the gate, and eventually boarded "ontime." Instead of taking off, however, we sat on board the plane at the gate for 2 hours as work was being done. The work was first called "maintenance," then "a small error code." The captain teased us by saying "folks, just a few more minutes and we should be departing." The crew nourished us with a dixie sized cups of water and Chex mix. Then finally the airline gave up and deplaned everyone. Once deplaned, it was explained to us that they couldn't clear the error code, so they couldn't use that plane. But there was another plane coming from Las Vegas to use so that we could expect a departure around 12 midnight. 12 midnight rolls around. Nothing. 12:30 am. 1 am. Finally, a plane arrives. But then the airline holds us up yet again - turns out we can't depart after all because the arriving airport shuts down at 2 am. Gee, they didn't know that before making us wait another 3 hours??? Now they're offering a refund to anybody who wants one, as well as a hotel for the night and the promise of a flight at 2:30 pm the following day. At this point, many of us are looking up alternative flights to Eugene and even Portland. A $1,000 extra for us. We're not sure whether we can trust Allegiant to have an actual plane ready to go the next day. And we're too tired at that point to even ask why the next flight would be at 2:30 pm rather than first thing in the morning. So finally we line up to get a hotel voucher and find our way to the hotel. It takes over an hour to checkin at the hotel because it's the middle of the night and 150 people just showed up to checkin. We finally get to our room at about 3:30 am. I'm amazed at how well our toddler held up sitting on an airplane for 2 hours, sitting at the airport for about 6 hours, and waiting to fall asleep all night. We eventually made it back to the airport the following afternoon and, praise the lord, made it to our destination. Allegiant - NEVER AGAIN!"
Pros: "Great airfare, great staff, etc. Cant help that the passengers are idiots ! Love this place."
Pros: "Kids board first and you dont have to worry about seating if u have a young child. Also, the nonstop flight was so relaxing."
Cons: "Not much..."
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Pros: "Ease of getting on and off, direct flight home, free parking in Belleville."
Cons: "seats are ok for 2 hour flight"
Pros: "On time and very efficient"
Pros: "Priority check-in and boarding were pleasant."
Cons: "Very tight seats, even for a small person. No recline. Screaming children throughout the cabin."
Pros: "Cheap."
Cons: "Both departing and return flights were delayed by just over 5 hours."
Pros: "Both ways were good flights. The return flight however was delayed. We did enjoy buying some tickets from a lady named Valerie in Des Moines who also later had to come on the plane and remove an intoxicated woman. She made everything so easy and simple and enjoyable. And we especially enjoyed the treatment that we received as my husband is a veteran. Thank you so much for that."
Pros: "The view through a milkey-filmed window."
Cons: "Airplane would have been nicer and lighter if the 4 attendants would have cleaned it."
Pros: "Cost of tickets, airport locations-and more convenient travel utilizing smaller airports."
Cons: "Baggage fees are outrageous, no complimentary amenities or refreshments. Flight attendants were rude in asking parties to return to assigned seats, while there were several completely open rows towards the back, (no obvious or explained reason aside from "assigned ticket seats" that they should remain empty. Families or companions could have traveled together- seemed unnecessary to prevent this, only gain noticed was Flight attendants satisfaction at denying seat relocation."
Pros: "Being on time and the crew"
Cons: "The chair is not reclining"

Cons: "Paying for checked luggage..."

Cons: "Three hour delay"
Cons: "Quick and easy. Great crew."
Pros: "Didn’t make this flight."

Pros: "Delays were clearly communicated with ample time to make changes if necessary"
Cons: "TEEEEENY WEENY itty bitty plane - hard to be comfortable- but fortunately it was a short flight"
Cons: "I had to check my carry on from DEN to DSM because flight was full which I was told I could pickup at gate.. at the gate the TSA agent was very rude to me as I was confused as where my bag was, which I had to to baggage claim."
Cons: "Flight delayed over 2 hours & little done to compensate travelers. No in-seat entertainment on a 2.5+ hour flight. I expect this from a budget airline, not United."
Cons: "Small old plane without any entertainment."
Cons: "The United crew really needs an attitude check. How can someone be angry at 6 am?"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Getting in so late the rental car offices were closed"
Cons: "The plane was not at the airport on time and when it caused us to miss the flight they blamed the weather instead of the plane not being at the airport on time. They were rude and refused to give hotel vouchers."
Pros: "Friendly service,. On time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everybody was so friendly"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "At least we didn't crash and die"
Cons: "I've flown with United before, and I've only had nothing but trouble. Decided to give them one last try, since their flights were a few bucks cheaper. Big mistake. They canceled my return flight last minute, and scheduled a new one over 24 hours later. Thus causing me to have to book a hotel last minute, as well as now being AWOL, since my Leave paperwork only lasted until my return date. Had to explain to the chief why I won't be at formation. I'm saving myself the trouble and never flying united again, even if I have to spend more money. United isn't even reimbursing me for the hotel. They basically told me to go f**k myself and file a complaint. They can eat a d**k."
Pros: "I MISSED IT BECAUSE UNITED DELAYED MY FLIGHT"
Cons: "UNITED DELAYED MY FLIGHT TO SAN FRANCISCO SO I HAVE NO IDEA."
Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "Everyone was super nice and gelpful"
Pros: "good entertainment through the united app"
Pros: "Quick and easy. Nice crew."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Attitude of gate agent, crews. Boarding penalizes all but highest level and they've demoted me since the merger and erased my 30 year history with UAL. Watched them mishandle a paraplegic passenger until another passenger swapped seats. Last choice for me."
Cons: "Tight seats, full flights"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crowded, overbooked, made me check my carry on which made me miss my train. Took 4 flights to get to my final destination. Small seats, uncomfortable... list goes on and on"
Pros: "Being up in the sky so cool."
Cons: "Na"
Cons: "Cancelled flight. No true explanation. Lack of detail and delay caused me to miss other flight opportunities."
Cons: "The airplane needed to be swapped, which caused an hour delay and made me miss my flight"
Pros: "They were kind enough to hold the flight as it was the only one today to Tucson!!"
Pros: "I loved it"
Pros: "My son was under 18 and was flying alone. He missed flight because boarding was complete and he was 5 min late. His next flight was delayed and he didn't get back to Tucson untill 9 p.m. I, parent did not get to escort child to the gate because my pass did not have fast pass stamp. Very poor experience and airport staff was not helpful."
Pros: "The crew were nice and even if they were stressed didn't show it one bit."
Cons: "With a flight based out of Denver, I'd have expected you to be a LITTLE more prepared for the inclement weather, and not be delayed over 12 hours with thousands of other people."
Pros: "Crew professional, a little bag of snacks and one cup of beverage so nothing outstanding, but then again nothing substandard than anyone else does nowadays. This flight arrived and departed right on time, as all of United flights did for me and right near Thanksgiving travel time too."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Staff was ok."
Pros: "At least I made it"
Cons: "Flight attendant for United 426 to Chicago was rude, flight delayed and they weren't very helpful"

Cons: "Lack of updates"
Pros: "Everything's on time"
Cons: "No,"
Cons: "The snack"
Pros: "Flight on time, no delays or problems"
Cons: "Seating for midgets"
Cons: "About two hours before my flight, it was canceled after previously making an airplane switch the night before after checking in online. The I received an email while I was on the way to the airport saying that the airplane that I was going to fly out on was canceled due to airplane maintenance. While I am happy they didn't fly the plane while needing maintenance, they should have planned ahead and known of the maintenance or had a backup ready to go. Obviously it must have been something they just found, but in the big picture of things. You have to pay an way to much for a flight as it is. They should have to solve their own issues to honor their part of the contract. We (as customers) can't cancel a flight with out penalties. Why shouldn't they have to do the same?"
Pros: "On the trip from Des Moines to Houston, timeliness of flight was great. The boarding went smooth and was done quickly. The crew were friendly and courteous. Overall the first half of the trip was fine."
Cons: "I was extremely disappointed in the condition of my luggage when I picked it up plane side. The wheel was broke off and all the pockets had been unzipped and it appeared they had been rummaged through. I had to drag my bag through the terminal. I spoke with 3 individuals with United who referred me onto the next and each unwilling as the previous to help. I myself am in customer service and would never treat my customers the way I was treated by the employees representing your Airline. I would go above and beyond to make the sure that the customers experience was a great one in spite of the unfotunate incident so they would return. I have never flown United before, and I will not consider your airline in the future."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I paid extra money for our seats so we cud sit together N I ended up on the front of the plane N my boyfriend clear in the back I'll never fly United again y the hell did I pay almost 25$ per seat to sit together to sit on opposite ends of the plane"
Pros: "They whole computer system went down all morning"
Cons: "I haven't made it. Their computer system was down all morning. I got a pretty inexpensive flight which was refunded. Although I can't go home, all the one way tickets are 3 times the price. Me and my 6 month old baby can't get home to his daddy."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Pros: "Everything was great, no waits, and right on time!"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and got us to our destination safely."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and boarding gate changed."
Pros: "That the flight was on time. disenchanted flight attendants. Makes you want to not need her assistance."
Cons: "Disenchanted flight attendants. For whatever reason, it is obvious that there is unhappiness. Not flat affect, just the look of disinterest, a look that tells you I don't care. In a customer based business it is so disheartening that the very person you may have to depend on to survive is not vested in the clientele that keeps her company in business, thereby insuring future paychecks. I'd like to communicate here that it wasn't all the attendants on either flight, but enough that it was obvious to anyone who paid even casual attention. I was flying home to California, so there were two additional flights a few days before the flights home. I never had any of the same flight attendants on any of the flight. As far as my observation of the attendants, as stated above, I think that speaks volumes. I will cite an example that happened on my trip from Iowa to Denver. I need wheelchair assistance, I walk with a cane, but not able to walk any distance. I pack a light carry-on, bring my purse, jacket and cane. I was being wheeled up the passageway in a regular wheelchair, and the man pushing me stated to the on-coming crew he "would be right back to get my suitcase, couldn't take both at the same time", and added " unless one of you could roll it up?". After an embarrassing pause, a female flight attendant said "Let the flight attendant do it. Add this to the list of responsibilities that aren't really my job." I actually twisted around to look at this person, I was so stunned to hear that! She grabbed my rolling carry-on handle and the look spoke columns. I was embarrased. Thank you. Debra K. Forsythe"
Pros: "Communication between crew and passengers"
Cons: "Obnoxious crew, repeating the same instructions over and over. No food, no entertainment. Short flight though."
Pros: "I like how I made it to my destination even after a huge blizzard in Denver."
Cons: "We were really delayed while on the air plane and the seats were not as comfortable as before. I understand that the delay is not the crews fault but actually DIA, but it was my least favorite part of the trip because it made me late to an appointment in Tucson."
Pros: "Everything was great and the trip was on time perfect"
Cons: "I have flown with United several times and will be avoiding this airline in the future. After notification that our flight had been delayed by 3 hours, the customer service was awful. The United representatives at the gate told us they could not rebook us nor would they be able to assist us with locating a different connecting flight. We then contacted customer service by phone and were directed to connecting flights. However the connecting flights were at an airport two hours away. After being informed that we would not be able to fly out the next day from the Des Moines airport, we. Had no other choice but to rent a car to drive to the Omaha airport. We had to rent a car because they would not accommodate us by changing our return flights to match where we flying out of. This whole experience has been awful for a trip that has been booked for more than 6 months. I plan to continue to inform the public of this horrendous experience."
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple timess"

My trip Chicago to Phoenix was good. I slept most of the way. They charge for everything now. Carry-on was ~$50. I brought my own snacks. Seats close together ( well, it is an airplane), but luckily I’ve been vaccinated. It was a round trip and on both, the flight was delayed an hour. The delays were from lightening storms. It was ok.

Good

Flight 3 hours late. Moved gates.

Seats are hard & don’t recline

Good price long layover

The flight, crew and cleanliness was good, my main complaint is that they tried to charge for ANY and EVERY BAG bag, whether checked or carry on. So you think you are getting a good deal for flight tickets, but that cost does NOT include ANY bags. The very nice gentleman who checked us in ended up only charging us for 2 of our 6 bags. We had 1 checked bag and 5 carry on (1 for each of us traveling). So he charged for our 1 big checked bag and 1 carry on and then waived the fees for all our other carry on bags. This helped tremendously and was very much appreciated. Although, since we now know Frontier does charge for all bag types, we will probably avoid using them again.

Frontier is a cheap airline but everything went well

Experienced a 1 hr flight delay, but they kept u updated on changes. Very clean, new looking planes. Have to pay for any inflight food /beverages. Little leg room but ok for short flights!! Helpful, friendly flight attendents. No wifi onboard. Have to pay extra for larger carryon bag & extra legroom seats. But basic flight prices are good so will try them again!!

the flight was on time but boarding didn’t start till 30 + mins later so kind of delayed!

Pros: "Crew was entertaining"
Cons: "So cramped and hot... awful"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The staff was excellent and the boarding process was quick and smooth. While the flight was delayed, staff really did a great job moving everyone along quickly and safely."
Cons: "This was my first time flying Frontier. The flight was 2 and 1/2 hours delayed. While the boarding process was quick, the delay really put a damper on the flight. Seats were very uncomfortabe and seemed smaller than other airlines I have traveled more frequently. The carpet had gum all over it."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats were really tight."
Pros: "Orderly boarding; very friendly flight attendants who REALLY know their craft. Shortly after takeoff there was a medical energency that they handled with expertise and caring as well as authority. The lead flight attendant and her staff worked together like a well oiled machine. this is our first time flying Frontier and it was an excellent experience. We’lll be back! Oh yea, coffee was great, not that awful strong Starbucks stuff."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Cons: "Didn’t even offer water on a 3hr flight"
Pros: "That I made it there in one piece."
Cons: "Not worth saving a couple dollars. Front tier airlines does not allow you to pick your seats before hand nor does it allow you to select baggage and the app, it is recessed for whatever reason. The seats are extremely tiny the tree table is so small you can barely fit an English muffin on it. There is no entertainment whatsoever, there is no Internet on the plane, and if you want anything to eat or drink besides water you will be paying for it. I’m sorry to say but flying on frontier was more like a punishment for me. I always fly American and wanted to save a few dollars what a mistake! With American most the planes that I have flown in have free movie entertainment and everybody seat the seats are comfortable And recline. And the snacks are free along with the soda. Please think twice before flying frontier."
Pros: "Do people write here for frontier?"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for over 3 hours. A fight broke loose and we had to return to the terminal and then back to the tarmac for more sitting. The crew finally figured out how uncomfortable and frustrated people were getting 2.5 hours to sitting with no air on the tarmac. They relieved their customers suffering then with complimentary water! Now that’s service. Frontier is one of the most base airlines out there. I’m entirely frustrated that they are one of the only airlines that service our podunk airport."
Pros: "I liked that I could fly to my destination with a non-stop flight. I also liked the (what seemed to be) final prices of the tickets."
Cons: "I did not like that I had to pay for seats when I already bought a ticket for the flight. It was a hidden fee and unfair to charge. The carry-on bags were also a hidden fee. I figured as much that to check a bag would be more expensive, but to have a carry-on cost as much as a checked bag? Not cool."
Cons: "My seat was not worth an extra $50. Sat next to a lady with a stinky dog in her lap that was probably a little too big for lap."
Cons: "Frontier seats are minimally padded and do not recline. It's difficult to sit in them for more than a couple of hours. Our 3.5 hour flight turned into a 7 hour flight after being unable to land because of storm conditions, circling for over an hour, and being rerouted to land at another airport for refueling before finally heading to our destination. It has been a week and our backs are still bothering us. We flew Frontier because it looked cheaper but after paying for luggage, seats, and food we would have been way better off to have flown on Southwest. We will never fly Frontier again."
Cons: "You're charged for everything. When checking in you have to pay for your seats... what's the point of spending $350 on a ticket if you have to spend another $60 on your seat. What was the ticket for?"
Cons: "Air bondage the seats were thin and uncomfortable they look like my daughters play school set .we were jammed in like crayons in a box .carpet , seats window Tray tables were a filthy and the tray table was so small , there was not enough room on it to hold a glass . The flight was 14 hours late coming in to den , plane broke down and do you they would help you ,,,nope your on your own . Missed a 70 th birthday party . I used to fly frontier exclusively the customer service wa great the plans clean with entertainment in the seat back . now it's like riding in an upholstered sewage pip With all the delux amenities of the DMV .by the time they up charge , you could have trvailed on real airline ."
Cons: "No emailed itinerary or checkin notification - I blame Kayak for this (it seems to happen whenever I book through Kayak) and will no longer book flights through Kayak. Frontier sucks, but you already know that going in so you get what you expect."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Biggest regret buying this "discounted" ticket. Not a real discount. Found out there were a bunch of hidden fees when I was checking in. They charge $60 for the checked bag EACH WAY and was super shocked they charge for a CARRYON!! Unbelievable. None of the regular seats recline whatsoever unless you pay more hidden fees just to have your seat not be straight up the entire time, and there is no front table to put a computer. To save another dime, they installed some super cheap 6 inch x 3 inch mini ledges that they call tables. I'll NEVER fly with Frontier again. They also refused to let me check in early so I had to sit and wait for hours since they refused to give me a boarding pass until I came all the way back to ticketing exactly and only exactly at 2 hours before boarding. Worst flight. A total shame since the crew was incredibly nice."
Cons: "Called in to book and the agent booked my trip backwards. They would not reimburse full unless I rebooked that moment so they only did half which I have to use in 90 days"
Pros: "Went off on time and early arrival"
Cons: "Bit of turbulence"
Pros: "Pleasant & helpful service."
Cons: "Crowded seating."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and kind."
Cons: "I felt like I was sitting on the person who sat beside me I wasn't really fond of touching some stranger...Water should be free I"
Pros: "The baggage claim girl in Atlanta was Wonderful she was very pleasant to me and my boyfriend and expressed a genuine concern about my unfortunate circumstance. Mariah (Frontire baggage claim girl) did everything she could to make sure I got my Bag back and called as soon as it arrived Thanks Mariah !!!!"
Cons: "They lost my bags I was flying to Atlanta from Phoenix and my bag ended up in St Louis ... i would assume that if your going to make me pay for my checked bag it would atleast make it to the correct destination. The crew wasn't as pleasant and friendly as I'd like them to be but did there jobs (I guess) then we had to sit and wait for a gate .... the only reason why a gate finally opened up was because people started asking for snacks. Overall there was nothing special about this flight I was upset that I didn't have my luggage from the beggening of my trip but the day before I left my bag was recovered . The ticket was inexpensive but I'm not sure if it was worth the hasstle Then I had to pay for my bags coming back as well. Suggestion maybe have a 50% voucher ad a courtesy from sending a bag to the wrong destination."
Cons: "They say low fares done right but my "cheap" flight turned out to cost me over double what it should have with their extra cost for everything! And I mean for EVERYTHING. Will never fly frontier again!"
Pros: "Seating is not guaranteed (may possibly break up party) unless given additional money at check-in. Charges for bags, and the website is very glitchy (be aware a glitch I encountered charged me $50 for ONE bag, I had to call the airline to pay by phone to correct it). The airline call center is international and the staff are very difficult to understand."
Pros: "Buying their bundle through Frontiers website that includes a checked bag, a carry-on, a seat, and zone one boarding was worth it for this airline."
Cons: "The plane was definitely older and there was trash and something sticky all in and around my seat. The flight attendants were very stuck up and played on their tablets and phones for the duration of the flight, ate pizza, and looked to be drinking too. Not much customer help, but that's also because no complimentary items are given through frontier, no even a half cup of soda. There are no bonus features on board like wi-fi or tv's on seat backs to order tv or movies. The price of flight was offset by the cost of bags and seat, so I ended up paying the same as I would have via United. I will not be flyin Frontier again."
Pros: "It was cheap!"
Cons: "It was cheap. You get what you pay for... I had forgot that there were absolutely NO additional frills with this airline... You get one cup of water and absolutely nothing else. The staff was a nice as can be expected, but didn't look like anyone wanted to be there. And when my husband asked for some hot tea (thinking it would be complimentary - it was not), they got very frustrated. But I would guess they're just victims of their circumstances, so no hard feelings... Still, wouldn't recommend unless you're on an extreme budget."
Pros: "The crew on the flight out of Detroit were pleasant and professional."
Cons: "The attendants in the airport at DTW weren't very friendly and throw luggage on the conveyor belt not taking into consideration people's belongings. Also the cost of bags and having to pay additionally for the seat is ridiculous. I would have rather pay a little more for a ticket for a nicer plane and be able to take my carry-on And my purse for free. I actually payed more with the cost of a ticket, bags and seat than a flight out with another airline. Both flights I took PHX-DTW and back were both significantly delayed. The seats were uncomfortable and tight. This is the first and last time flying with Frontier airlines."
Pros: "Likely the most uncomfortable plane I've ever been on. Seats feature zero padding, the inability to recline, and a tray table the size of a DVD case. I'm 5' 9" 148 pounds, young and very healthy. I left the plane with a twisted up neck like I've never had before. I landed safely so I MUST be thankful for that, but if I was booking I would want to know this information. Since I'm the wiser now I will not book with Frontier again. Also it was an extra $90 for my CARRY ON round trip. It notified me it would be extra when I booked online but didn't specify how much. What a surprise. I spent more on the fees for the bag than I spent on the bag itself (and most of the contents for that matter)."
Pros: "Paid for more room. It was enough. Glad I paid for it. The price kept going up as I was shopping seats (over the course of 20 minutes) the first time this was after the site crashed. Lame."
Cons: "Seat assignment pricing slowly tickin up as I check in seemed predatory. Baggage policy confused most people and made boarding slow. Rude worker. Everything costs $$$. Not worth the headache for the few bucks saved (I saved $20 at the end of day to not take Delta.)"
Pros: "I missed my first flight back to Phoenix and a sipervisor rescheduled me for a later flight. She was amazing and wonderful as there were no extra charges. She also helped me with handicapped transport around the airport. The man who got me from the counter to the gate stopped at a restaurant so I could grab some food as I didn't have any time to eat during the day. However all 3 flights were pushed back with the last over 2 hours late. I didn't get home until well after 2 am. Should have gotten home by 11:30 pm. Colleen"
Pros: "That they waited for a plane to get in and take the passengers who were already booked. Between the holidays and bad weather, it was the right thing to do."
Cons: "Tried to cancel this flight using the flight insurance I was up sold during checkout. Turns out that the flight insurance was only available for international flights? When I ask the agent why it was the recommended during purchase, she said I should have read the full terms and conditions during checkout. To me, this was a true scam. She told me that I could appeal the conditions of the travel insurance, but I would have to present a death certificate of the friend's baby that had just passed - the reason the baby shower was cancelled, and the reason this trip was cancelled. It was appalling. I tried calling Frontier directly, but their reservation desk was closed due to their system being down. HOURS I tried to call, and could not get a rep. I ended up not able to cancel the flight or even speak w a Frontier rep before my flight departed. In all, I was given 6 different numbers or lines to call to sort through this situation. All I did was waste hours of my time. This was a terrible situation where I feel like I was the victim of a scam."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Frontier has got to be the worst airline in the country. This is America's Ryan Air. They close their gate 40 minutes before the plane leaves; you will be stranded if you are late (My son missed his flight in the past when we arrived 50 minutes before the plane left). They charge for everything; checked bags, carry-ons, even drinks. There is no room to store anything. The seats don't recline. There is no entertainment. The staff is surly. They are supposed to be a low-cost airline, but, after all of the mark-ups, it's about the same. They have the worst on-time performance of any domestic airline. Do not fall for it. If you have ANY alternative choice, take it!!!"
Pros: "The flight was super cheap, the flight crew was friendly, and the seats were fairly comfortable."
Cons: "Though a sign was posted with a time when the counter agent would arrive, we (there were MANY of us waiting who had checked in electronically) had to wait over 20 minutes for her to show up to tag and take our checked bags. She was unkempt and unfriendly, and oddly insisted on looking at everyone's identification, even those who weren't checking bags. The flight crew was wonderful, and the rest of the flight was generally good. It's not effective for a travel business to begin a journey on a bad note."
Pros: "Quick boarding, and friendly staff."
Cons: "The charge for a drink, other than water. Also the amount of crying babies on the flight, which Frontier had no control over."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about traveling with Frontier."
Cons: "Upcharge for Seats, Upcharge for Checked Bags, Upcharge for Carry Ons, Upcharge for Water. They charge you for water. That seems illegal. The flight was delayed, the gate was changed. We had to change gates which means we had to go through security twice. The staff blamed everyone and everything else (even the passengers) for all the issues and took ZERO responsibility for anything. I can't believe they are still in business with this level of customer service. The flight attendants were ghetto too. Making light of a bad situation by saying the worst things possible. Total embarasment transfer. I'll never fly Frontier again and will think twice about booking travel with Kayak."
Pros: "Co-pilot who had to explain to passengers why so many flaws occurred in this flight, she tried to be humorous."
Cons: "Flight 1884 out of SFO was doomed from the beginning starting with a notice (thanks Kayak) via email that the flight would be 1 hour late. Then, the Departure board at the airport totally dropped the flight, Then (again thru Kayak) I read that the flight would NOT board in terminal 1, Gate 21, Domestic terminal, but ar gate A3 in the International terminal. We all had to exit domestic and go to international and again through TSA. Then the flight departed another 30 minutes late finally over 2 hours LATE! Upon arrival at Phoenix the plane taxied too far away from the exit ramp-another 40 minutes before we could depart. It was an awful flight experience. Did they offer a free soda or anything for inconvenience we experienced-NOT A THING!"
Pros: "The flights went fine, and were mostly on-time, just a little delay leaving Chicago because the incoming flight had to wait for a gate to open up"
Cons: "Frontier's customer service line is horrible, with no clear option to reach a person to ask questions of without hunting through every option. Also, they charged me to pick a seat, ANY seat, so what the hell am I paying for when I pay for a flight?! I also had to put my backpack under my seat, even though it was stated numerous times on their website that it would be too big, and I had to pay $40 to make it a carry-on, when there was no room in the overhead bins. Their customer service line AND website stated I could be charged up to DOUBLE that ($80) if I had to pay for it at the gate. I looked it up, and I would have payed less on at least two other carriers because of the extra charges. This is information that should CLEARLY be stated when listing the costs of a flight, not "covered" under "additional costs may apply" or some such legalese"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. The worse airline out there. Bunch of crooks. Kept 150 more people in the dark while we were delayed for almost 7 hours! Did not offer any information, did not solve any issues, did not even offer a damn bottle of water! GOD AWFUL customer service. Never again will Frontier get my business. Neither us or anyone else that I know."
Cons: "Everything about it was horrible. I will make sure our Awful experience will be heard every where in the media. It's a shame that Kayak supports such a low rate airline. Next time around I will check other sites before finalizing my ticket with Kayak."
Cons: "I bought a plane ticket and then had to pay for a seat on top of that, as well as exorbitant charges for bags, and we ended up paying far more than even the plane ticket for all the extra charges. If I buy a plane ticket, that price is what I am expecting to pay. I understand a few charges here and there, but more than double what I expected to pay is completely crooked and terrible business. The plane ride was bare bones, uncomfortable seats, and average service. We will never be flying Frontier again."
Pros: "Except for my "complaint," I thought the flight was fine. People were helpful boarding the play. The crew seemed friendly and chatty. I had a good seat (upgraded to the first three rows for extra expense). The monkey white wine was good and the flight attendant was witty and helpful. Thanks!"
Cons: "The only thing that caused me some concern was that the ATL gate on the printed ticket read 1 but the actual departure gate was 1A. At first I went to 1 and the flight information said Trenton and I didn't see the 1A or even go there to look. I found a helpful Delta service personnel who said, "Oh these people, they are never around to help the passengers. I'll help you. He went online at a kiosk in the general hallway and pulled up the flight as departing 1A. Sincere there was no way for me to know about this. I could have missed the flight. Either post someone to direct passengers OR put the correct information on the electronic ticket. Thanks."
Cons: "Had to deplane, then get back on the plane, staff didn't communicate what was happening. We still didn't fly out for 45 minutes M. We had a sleepy, cranky baby because we were already flying out 2 hrs later than scheduled. No one checked in on is once. Very frustrating experience and I don't think we will fly frontier again if we can help it."
Pros: "on time service personel good"
Cons: "the air line is charging for everything including sodas ,cary on lagages with I think it is a little to much for the price"
