Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Drinks and snacks."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Baggage claim took one hour"

Pros: "Arrived 30 min early"

Pros: "That it got me from A to B."
Cons: "Going from PHX to DTW I didn't recieve any confirmation email 24 hrs in advance. The AC in the cabin wasnt working and was unbearably hot. From DTW to PHX still didn't get a confirmation email 24 hrs in advance again with any policys or check in. Arrived "on time" but wouldn't let us and other paying customers through to our gate...wanted to make me pay additionally for our return flight the NEXT day when we both had to miss work. Was very disappointed with customer service and the way thinga were handled from the beginning. Frontier has really declined as of recent. Supposed to be going on a trip in October and initially was going to use frontier but not sure I will be any longer. Wouldn't recommend to anyone after that."

Cons: "The landing was horrible"

Pros: "Polite employees from Frontier, courteous and helpful. Knowledgeable, too."
Cons: "What happened to, snacks & soda on flights? Everything is *for purchase *.other airlines done have sales people on board, credit card, for purchase snacks ~ silly!"

Pros: "Quick boarding, and fair service"
Cons: "Nothing super fantastic to say, but also no real complaints!"

Pros: "Direct flight on time smooth flight"

Pros: "The flight was very smooth. By"

Cons: "$40 for a carry on bag. Only free water and no snacks for a 4 hour flight."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. They had a funny sense of humor and made the flight fun. This was my 3rd flight with Frontier in 6 months, will continue to fly you have affordable fares..."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 hour. I think it is ridiculous to charge customers for water."

Pros: "price"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"

Pros: "Before our trip, I read some mixed reviews, but honestly the experience was what I expected. The crew was really friendly and attentive, our flight took off and landed on time, so that was great."
Cons: "The seats were only so comfortable, and don't recline, no in-flight wi-fi, and everything needed to be purchased as extra. This was what I was expecting though, so I came prepared with my kindle and snacks purchased from the airport."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight had been delayed 4 1/2 hours. This was because they were waiting for another plane to arrive due to mechanical problems. The plane seating is cramped and no leg room. Nothing special about your flight attendant.."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Boarding was quick."
Cons: "Plane was delayed half hour. Could have been cleaned better. Forward bathroom smelled like urine. Don't like the request for tip when purchasing food or beverage. We are already charged for EVERYTHING!"

Pros: "I got a full row to myself.."
Cons: "Could not recline seat. Could not understand flight attendants' speech."

Pros: "Everyone is on time or ahead of time and the people who served us in the plane or very nice"
Cons: "When I needed to make arrangements for bloggers to order things to do at the change the flight times it was almost impossible to Richard Hillman when I did the person if I talked to was nice and helpful but it was just very difficult to reach a human"

Pros: "Went off on time and early arrival"
Cons: "Bit of turbulence"

Pros: "The only thing to ever like about Frontier if their price and that is only if you pack light and carry a personal bag on board"
Cons: "The boarding process per zone makes no sense causing no room overhead so in an already congested seat you now have no leg room because your bag is jammed under. They dont check you in with any care causing massive lines and i feel sorry for the individual who misses their '45 min deadline'. NO ELECTRONIC FRONTIER CHECK INS IN DETROIT."

Pros: "Great take off and landing. Very comfortable seats."
Cons: "That no snacks or beverages were provided for free"

Pros: "I enjoyed the trip in though your people are slow."
Cons: "The seats"

Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time."
Cons: "It took 2 hours to get our bags we checked."

Cons: "The seats are way too small. I had someone's body/ arm halfway into my seat the entire time. Seats do not recline. The turbulence was the worst I have ever ever ever experienced. Seats are uncomfy. I will not be flying frontier ever again. The pilots never once commented on turbulence or how bad it was going to be. Weird noises coming from the plane halfway throughout flight."

Pros: "If you have ever flown Ryan air ,this appears to be the American version."

Pros: "Staff was fine."
Cons: "delays, delays, delays. My flight were delayed with unknown times, including flights before me. Seems to be a very consistent problem. Waiting to dock the plane into the terminal was an extra 20 minutes. schedule efficiency is poor."

Pros: "Crew very attentive. Best landing ever. A few empty seats so we felt less confined. Seats are small but okay for a 4 hour trip. I know about the charges for bags so I am prepare to pay up or fly light."

Pros: "I liked the bundle package of a carry on, a checked bag and stretch seating. A fair price for the extras and the stretch seating is definitely a must!"
Cons: "I wasn't really impressed by the general lack of kindness from the flight attendants. Seemed like they hated their jobs and didn't want to be doing it. Didn't really want to ask for anything because I felt like I was inconveniencing them."

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: "Boarding process was fine."
Cons: "Seat assignment process is ridiculous. To get assigned seats, there was a charge for every seat on the plane. Seats don't recline unless you pay a significant upcharge. Table trays are about 5" deep. If you wait long enough to check in online, you get an improved sear assignment."

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."

Pros: "I did like the crew"
Cons: "I did pay the carry-on. On last Sunday, the trip was cancelled for one of my son who was back to Phoenix. My family and I will never use this company to travel."

Pros: "The flight was cheap, $12 for 2 tickets one way with taxes it came to $120 and change."

Pros: "I really like the reasonable prices and the direct flights to certain destinations."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that your charged and extra fee for your bags at the gate. I also think Frontier should at a minimum serve snacks and a drink for free."

Pros: "No wifi made the trip unbearable."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly. There was a medical emergency and they handled it very professionally. They kept us updated the whole time. I also love how cheap it is to fly Frontier."
Cons: "This is the 3rd time I've flown Frontier, and every time it takes more than 30 minutes after I've arrived at baggage claim for them to send out our bags...I'm not sure who is responsible for the efficiency of this process, but it's literally every time I fly Frontier that I'm waiting forever for my bag. This does not happen on other airlines."

Cons: "changed itinerary with 9 hr layover in Denver or somewhere, making it impossible to get to the wedding in time. So i cancelled flight. At least they refunded me...."

Cons: "Baggage price is ridiculous"

Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and super cramped. The food options weren't super great. Nothing for vegetarians or vegans. High prices as well. Not a fan of frontier at all."

Pros: "Flight arrived on-time"
Cons: "The non-reclining chairs are very uncomfortable for any flight over 90 minutes. The fact that carry-ons, drinks and snacks are priced expensively makes me wish I had flown a different airline. This was my first experience with Frontier and I doubt that I will book a flight with them anytime soon."

Pros: "No connext flight from DTW to P hx"
Cons: "The window seat was very hard to go to the restroom"

Pros: "Arrived early to our destination"
