Overhead announcement said reason we could not move was people were not in seats... not at all true after they announced to sit, everyone sat... no further explanation... here we still sit"

Pros: "I Was given a seat by the emergency door. I'm 6'3" so that was really appreciated. friendly crew,nice flight and we arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule."
Cons: "I was unable to print my boarding pass at the airport. I only had a carry-on, but had to stand in a long line that only had one agent working."

Cons: "The plane smelled awful. It was old. The seats were way to upright and uncomfortable. This made many people recline. This encroaches on the small amount of space of the person behind."
Pros: "Due to purchasing carry-on at the last minute, had Zone 1 seating which was wonderful. Didn't care for the price very much but seating-wise great. Everyone was cheerful & friendly & due to the nature of this trip much needed. Have flown Frontier 1x before and both times gates were very convenient which was nice."
Cons: "I don't know. Was glad that majority of children/babies were more to the back of the plane."
Pros: "Gate keeper never told us that the flight would be delayed due to plane issues."
Cons: "I would never fly frontier again"
Pros: "nothing, the service was terrible all around for frontier airlines."
Cons: "The airline had a hidden Carry On Luggage Charge that blindsided me. The combined cost of taking a carry on cost over half the amount of my roundtrip airfare for three people. Other airlines provide complimentary carry ons as a service to their customers. On top of this the flight was delayed by more than six hours and we were not offered any sort of refreshments on the flight free of charge to compensate for the large delay and overall made the experience poor. I will never fly with frontier again and would neither recommend the company to my clients or friends. I demand a refund on the charge of my carry on luggage as that was a shady business practice and poor service by frontier airlines for also delaying my flight."
Pros: "The boarding and deplaning process was very fast. Most likely this is due to the fact that it is less expensive to check a bag than to carry one on, so there were way fewer bags overhead than on a typical flight with another airline."
Cons: "Be prepared to pay if you want to eat or drink. All items are for purchase only. I don't think that my seat reclined at all (and I wasn't near an exit row), so no sleep for me on my almost three hour flight."
Pros: "crew was great ,will fly again with frontier"
Cons: "Stewart was not very friendly"
Pros: "Rough flight but early to Orlando!"
Pros: "All of the counter people and crew were very friendly. The plane was new and very clean. The flight arrived ahead of schedule. It is true that we did not get free drinks but nothing is free. The price was great and I was well treated. I would certainly fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful!!!"
Pros: "Attendants were pleasant. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Charges for selecting a seat and all bags other than a personal item."
Pros: "The crew members were very nice and the entire flight was fine.. baggage arrived quickly. No problems with anything."
Cons: "Hate having to pay more for seat selection, baggage and refreshments. Will never fly frontier again for these reasons."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight and lost a day with my son."
Pros: "None specific"
Pros: "Boarding was fast. The only slightly negative I noticed was the window was very dirty on the inside and the seat back in front of me was too."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled after waiting 2 hrs. Tried to use the 1-800 number they gave. During the 1 hour call, I was initially told I could get to Orlando late, then after multipal waits, I was told nothing was available until the next day late. I tried to cancel the flight and get my money back because it was a long weekend trip. Frontier has you fill out a request and will not give a decision for 7 days. Terrible service."
Pros: "Price was good."
Cons: "Charged for every thing seats, luggage, . Took over an hour for luggage. They waited for the next Frontier flight about half an hour then brought lugage from both flights at the same time. Not enough to get me back to Frontier!"
Cons: "I was told 25 for luggage then 30 got to airport they said 40$ that I didn't pre check which I did, and they said no cash only credit so it cost me another 5 for credit card. I'm very upset over this"
Pros: "I'd never flown frontier until this flight. I was very satisfied, with the exception being the lack of entertainment. I scored low because there wasn't any. That doesn't mean I was unhappy, as it was a three hour flight, and I'm perfectly capable of being screen free for a few hours. There was ample leg room, and the flight attendant staff was not only friendly, but funny and individual. One was even cracking jokes, which I loved. It keeps the stress of traveling off my mind. Additionally, the flight was fairly smooth, free of turbulence, and early arriving. I'll be flying frontier again for sure."
Cons: "The cheap flight price was coupled with a charge for carry-on luggage. I didn't know about this, so I was a bit put off."
Pros: "Cramed in like cattle cheap flimsy seats.where did the fun of flying go?"
Cons: "Its all about money"
Pros: "Left right on time. The crew was excellent. Everything was great. Would definitely fly with Frontier again!"
Pros: "Courteous crew while boarding. + My flight was on time and even arrived early. ++ The crew was very professional in their jobs, from boarding to offering drinks and snacks. Even though I declined. Always had a smile. However I think while getting off the plane they could have been a little more greatful or thankful. It was really no big deal. But she seemed a little nerved. Maybe she had a moment. We all do. Overall great flight."
Cons: "However. Padding on the seats would be appreciated. I have a bad back. Your seats were the most uncomfortable seats I've ever been in. I know there was padding. But very little. I fly about 4,times a year. Would be more app to using your airlines on a regular basis if this problem was resolved."
Cons: "It took over an hour to retrieve checked luggage."
Cons: "They lost my bags"
Pros: "took off early and arrived early to destination"
Cons: "what i stated and flight very rough"

Pros: "Highly skilled pilots. Great job flying through storm on flight to Florida and very smooth landing and flight on the way back to Detroit. Clean plane and seemed in great shape. Flight crew very nice and friendly."
Pros: "Crew was fine. Seat was like any other."
Cons: "What is the point of "social distancing" when you pack every single seat sitting on top of one other and throw out the guidelines the second you step on the plane?"
Pros: "The crew was nice but could have been more informative on details of layover"
Cons: "Spirit nickle and dimes you to death. 3 dollars for water. Also have to pay for seats to make sure we can set together. Then had a woman with fairly large child in her lap next to us. No seat for the child and she cried and kicked my wife most of the way."
Pros: "Crew was fun"

My purse and clothes had sticky pop all over them."
