Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"Flight was delayed"
"It was quick, plane was loaded and the service on board was ok"
"Those corn kernel snacks were too hard for my dentures"
Pros: "I didn’t like the crew on board .. everyone else was good, there was a flight attendant on my flight very rude, I asked if it was possible to get an additional snack, and she looked at me, she told me something that I didn’t understand , she placed an extra snack on my tray.. then she picked it up and took it away from me … that was extremely rude .. I am a 71 years old woman and I was never treated the way the attendant treated me"
Cons: "You need to provide a better customer service to your passengers, you need to train them and evaluate them to treat passengers with respect, if they have a job it is because we people use your airline not the other way around"
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working"
Pros: "Uneventful flight. Departed on time. Arrived ahead of schedule (good thing). Excellent crew from nose to tail."
Cons: "PA system at gate was awful. Instructions were inaudible."
Pros: "crew was great and moved me further up in the plane to make a tight connection"
Pros: "Everything about my trip was exceptional!"
Pros: "Very clean and plane was not crowded!"
Cons: "Food and beverage service, but we completely understand with COVID 19"
Pros: "Good seats and very clear"
Pros: "Nothing,really other than the fact that it Got us home."
Cons: "At least offer water. There was no service whatsoever"
Pros: "Flight and plan where great."
Cons: "Stewardess was very rude and un please y with all customers. Didn’t feel like she wanted to be on the flight. Her attitude was the main problem."

Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "comfortable first class seat"
Cons: "There was no wifi. No entertainment, no ability to work."
Pros: "Crew was awesome, friendly, tentative, and welcoming."
Cons: "Screaming kid in the background, wouldn't stop the entire flight."
Pros: "Pilots and crew are still great- all negative comments have to do with corporate policy."
Cons: "Not able to social distance at all. We had to board a bus to get to the plane and we sat there for 20 minutes breathing in exhaust while we were packed in like sardines rather than the bus going back and fourth with smaller groups. The plane was tiny, so again- no way to distance at all. Seats at the front were left unoccupied rather than allowing others to move to them for social distancing."
Cons: "Seats are thick but zero lumbar. Back too short at shoulders and I'm only 5'8""
Cons: "There were too many people on the flight. The middle seat was occupied."
Pros: "2 and 2 seats, all occupied, no distancing."
Cons: "Better seating, boarding from the tail to decrease contact"
Pros: "Boarding process was easy and flight was smooth."
Pros: "Crew was great seats like always aren’t comfy"
Cons: "Better seats"
Pros: "Flight diverted. Poor communication"
Cons: "Realistically explain options of what may happen due to weather issues"
Pros: "The crew was very polite and helpful as the flight attendant was still new."
Cons: "It was FREEZING on the plane."
Cons: "Truth is they practice in like cattle. I ended up sitting next to a ginormous woman. It was a very uncomfortable flight from DC to Charleston. Come on American you're better than that quit using such small planes!"
Cons: "Everything AA did nothing right."
Pros: "The was plenty of leg room."
Cons: "One flight attendant was pretty unfriendly."
Pros: "Was not long enough"
Cons: "We were delayed at the gate after getting on the plane. While the crew was communicative it would have been better if we were alerted before boarding"
Pros: "Good crew, good service, good captain."
Cons: "If I did not have to check my carry-on to baggage claim. The flight was delayed and landed late (high winds)"
Pros: "One of our fellow passengers was willing to change seats so my wife and I could sit together."
Cons: "I'm not a fan of American's Basic Economy, where they nickel-and-dime for every little thing. Choosing seats while checking in online does not cost the airline any more than assigning them, so charging for the privilege of choosing your seat is simply a money grab."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Negative leg room. If the seat next to me had not been vacant, my legs would have lost circulation."
Pros: "Efforts to get us to Philadelphia"
Cons: "Got to Philly - no one there - rushed 2 concourses and plane still there with daughter on-board. They gave away our seats, told us we would not get on, would not get our baggage and would not get put up in a hotel. Because of the NBA draft - had to travel 60 miles to New Jersey for a hotel. Lost a day, lost 2 tours, endured additional hotel costs...and the attendant made it clear she was on overtime and we just needed to move on. American Airlines is too big and consolidation of airlines has not been good for the public."
Pros: "Pleasant service ; courteous team"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "DCA based AA gate agents were awesome. We were booked on a flight that was delayed, turned out there was a flight about to depart (it had been delayed 2.5hrs due to weather), but was departing prior to our reg scheduled flight so they put us on standby. No doubt the crew was also columbus based and eager to get home...as they did. Couldn’t be more pleased to get home"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "There was NO ROOM for my legs when the man in front of me reclined his seat. I could not work on my laptop because it was such a ridiculously tight fit. I am 5'9" tall, and i have never been so cramped on an airplane."
Pros: "The flight attendant was fantastic. Very friendly, very helpful, checking on all the passengers. He even loaned his phone charger to one passenger. It was a full flight and he was working hard, but had a smile on his face the entire time. Give him a raise!"
Cons: "the airplane was absolutely freezing. It was so cold, you could actually see the air blowing (like in winter). There's no need for that. Somehow European airlines manage not to freeze out all their passengers. It was less than a two hour flight but felt like an eternity because it was so uncomfortable. Seat size - this is absolutely the smallest it can/should go. I am pretty skinny, but even I'm running out of room and the seat backs could be made a bit more comfortable. Not only is there almost no recline, but the way they are constructed - they actually push my head forward - not made for short people."
Pros: "I think for the most part you have some of the best customer service but your snacks are awful compared to other airlines."
Cons: "Mechanical issues, late late late, bad communication, no apologies or compensation for huge waste of time."
Pros: "I love the fact I've flown with American Airlines 4 times over the last month and have not had any issues, delays or even an unfriendly face no matter the time or airport!"
Cons: "Late late cancelled chaos in reassignment late late One agent threw up hands said I'm done and left with long line of passengers not yet reassigned Person behind me asked why didn't we take Delta?"
Pros: "Food, OK legroom, complimentary wine & beer on a US carrier"
Cons: "Barely functioning ancient touchscreen system"
Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"
Pros: "The plane has improved greatly with their comfort and leg space"
Cons: "With checking my luggage my bag fee was waived a total of seven times this trip because I'm a military wife to see my husband overseas who is serving a year in Saudi Arabi except this past time on October 2nd at DCA airport. Spoke with the Supervisor Ralph who stated it was against policy. How stringent is this policy if it was waived seven times previously? Policy needs to be reviewed with entire staff. I will no longer use American Airlines because their military convenience and policies no longer seem to favor the military. My husband also after speaking with him will also no longer use your airline including all his members he overseas when they return after their year tour."
Cons: "I thought I was booking an Alaska Airlines flight. I booked on Alaska Airlines website. I picked seats. I missed the part in the email I received later saying I didn't have seats. I never received a check in notification email. It took forever to check in at the airport because the the kiosk took a while to pull up my reservation after asking for additional information. I got stuck with middle seats on 5 hour plus flights when I had actually checked to confirm I could still select a window seat before I booked and did indeed select window seats when I booked."
Pros: "I was in first class, so the legroom and seat comfort is good. The seats were removed with leather and headrest was movable."
Cons: "The gate agent didn't enforce the carry-on policies. Large roller bags were turned sideways in the overhead bins. Flight attendants were not friendly. Why pay profit sharing to employees if they still are treating people badly. Overall it was an ok flight, I wouldn't go out of my way to fly them, just if they are the cheapest, because their attitude towards paying customers is horrible. I wish I could return the favor to them one day, I bet they wouldn't like it very much."
Pros: "Was about an average flight for domestic travel."
Cons: "Leg room on flight wasn't the greatest and seat recline also slides the bottom of the seat forward."
Cons: "The flight attendant chastised my husband loudly when doing a pre check before take off. She reached over and yanked his charger our of the socket and stood over him and reprimanded him for not being on airplane mode. The passengers in front were turning around while the passengers behind were laughing. It was excessive and inappropriate. The passengers behind him had tray tables down and video games out and when she addressed them it was in a respectful manner, but when addressing my husband, it was disrespectful and unprofessional. Seemed to be discrimination as she did not treat any other passengers like this. I wish I would have captured this on video to share with American Airlines as I do not think they would condone her behavior. Her name was Marlene and she needs additional training regarding customer service."
Pros: "Crew was ok, did their best considering the circumstances, but even they were getting aggravated and were short with the passengers near the end."
Cons: "The Washington airport is horrible. The gate we left from was not a gate but a series of doors that buses came to. This wouldn't be so bad if they were able to handle it in an orderly way, but the airport showed complete incompetence in organizing anything and there were people everywhere trying to find the right door which kept changing on them, and the times kept changing...it was a mess. Then, when we finally got on the plane and were about to take off, the air traffic control tower called and said that their flight path was incorrect and to not take off...but didn't give them a new flight path for nearly two hours as we sat on the runway. Nationalize the airports in DC, fire the whole lot and start fresh, I'd say."
Cons: "They oversold the flight and many People had to stay for 2 more days I was lucky to get a seat they sold my ticket to someone else it was like a nightmare"
Cons: "On time"
Cons: "Treat form Volaris personal at Cancun terminal"
Cons: "Flight was over sold and lost my seat"
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "Volaris's system apparently was malfunctioning that prevented anyone from checking in online or through any app which caused stress the day before travel. Even worse, they couldnt even check in at the gate and had to fill out forms by hand, which caused a 2 hours delay!"
Cons: "The flights took off over an hour late. The seats were incredibly uncomfortable and didn’t recline., even ven a little bit. I am 5’6” and my knees touched the seat in front of me."
Pros: "on-time flight and arrive"
Cons: "- Worst seats ever. I felt that I was sitting on stones. Limites recline, limited legs space.No entertainment, no water. Worst boarding system EVER!!! , No flight again, Do not fly this airline!!"
Cons: "Volaris airline didn’t even receive the confirmation of the flight I purchased"
Pros: "The flight was delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "My suitcase was damage when I pick it up"
Pros: "The price of the ticket."
Cons: "Polaris told passengers to arrive at the Morelia airport 3 hours before departure, which for a 6:20am flight meant 3:20am. Many passengers arrived a little before that time, and there were no Volaris representatives available to answer questions or even a clear area in which to form a queue."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew friendly."
Cons: "The new seat design slim seats are so uncomfortable. They are really bad! To Volaris could @ least offer coffee, tea and water Complimentary."
Cons: "This fly was pretty good!"
Pros: "The seat was awful! No cushion at all. Very old like you are sitting on a piece of hard wood for 3 hours. Causes unnecessary back pain. No leg room or arm room. Won’t travel Volaris again."
Pros: "The crew was fine"
Cons: "My flight supposed to be $220.00 but when I got to the airport the final price was $340.00. It was rather unfortunate to learn that they lied with their online prices. It was until I was at the terminal did they start charging me for everything that was not included in the online bill."
Pros: "The crew was SUPER nice and waited for me even though I was late and helped me get through security check and everything. Super, Amazing crew"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Staff was joking around, lot of people didn't respect the sites on tickets so it was a mess, instead of a solution, some persons were finding a sit before take off. The crew didn't took responsibility."
Pros: "Good basic airline ALWAYS reserve your seat ahead of time"
Cons: "Softer seats more like cement"
Cons: "El vuelo más incómodo de mi vida. Ridiculo el espacio entre asientos fila 30."

Pros: "All right"
Cons: "Volaris charged $36 for 1lb over in my carry on luggage."
Pros: "That we landed safely"
Cons: "This airline needs to be shut down please, if you’re over 5’4 it’s not for you. Seats are hard and uncomfortable, they are never on time with anything. The bilingual representatives just stare at you when you ask something in English. You’re charged $25 us if you’re 1pound over the 22 lb limit."
Pros: "Attentive, respectful, and on time! This airline has treated me very well."
Cons: "Everything, the service, they charge for everything."
Pros: "Helpful check in Pleasant crew"

Pros: "Comfort was ok"
Cons: "No free snacks or Water."
Pros: "I like the good service"

Pros: "We checked all of our luggage for free. Great customer service."

Cons: "The friendliness of the service from both the people from the ticketing counter and at the gate counter."
Pros: "Very efficient"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Don’t block the bathroom for >1 hr during the flight because one flight attendant is hanging out with the pilot."
Cons: "An isle or window seat"
Cons: "Stewardess who had to repeatedly ask a customer to put their mask on said “I hope you get it”. Referring, of course, to COVID-19. Horrible."
Pros: "The emergency row seat was good."
Cons: "The hidden carry on luggage fee is terrible."
Cons: "The woman sitting across the aisle from me wasn't wearing a mask. I asked her to put one on and she refused. I asked a crew member to ask her and she also didn't comply. It was uncomfortable and I was disappointed the crew didn't do more to force the issue."
Cons: "Good service"
Pros: "easy boarding, on time departure"
Cons: "seat comfort, leg room"
Pros: "I like the convenient flight from Islip to RSW."
Cons: "Every bag is an additional charge, most every choice of seat costs more. There are no TVs, minimal snacks and beverages have to all be purchased. Snack tables are super tiny, seats do not recline."
Pros: "The boarding process is efficient and they don't run out of bin space. The crew is nice and we got in really early."
Cons: "They charge you for literally everything but water. The seats are also uncomfortable for more than a three-hour flight and don't recline. The tray table is 1/3 the size of a normal one."
Cons: "the flight was cancelled and never re booked."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and we were only notified once we reached the airport. I will never fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Seats were made of hard plastic and did not recline. No radio or TV. No free food offered. Waited hours as they had to locate a mechanic, repair an armrest and then do the paperwork to prove that he had finishes the armrest!"
Pros: "Was in Zone 1 and boarding was easy. Captain was informative. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3.5hrs. Tray-table barely holds a cell phone, seats don’t recline, no air while we waited to get approval to take off"
Pros: "The punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "The comfort and entertainment is fair but could be better. For instance news papers ,books or magazines could be placed on each passenger seat for such long flights . Moreover the crew in charge for checking weren't early and this creates a mad que"
Pros: "Cheaper prices. Safe flight in a steel tube. Because Frontier charges for food, the stewards/stewardesses were very quiet about it and let the passengers sleep."
Cons: "Food costs extra. the fact that I didn't get notice beforehand about purchasing my bag space before getting to the front counter and paying there. So it was more expensive. Boo! The fact that baggage costs money. The fact that you get yelled at over the airline PA that if you can no longer place your carry on in the overhead bins unless you paid for it, and that your bags must now go underneath the seat in front of you, when leg space is already tight. And, no, I am not overweight by a long shot."
Cons: "The flight was uncomfortable, cheap rate but you had to pay $40 for just a carry on and another $11-$50 to check in and pick a seat! The flight attendants were less than friendly and not even a coke was complimentary."
Cons: "pay for tea-never!!!! I got hot water instead- next time I'll bring a tea bag..No other airline has asked me to remain thirsty for a flight of 4 hours. Add getting on and off the plane and to the gates and baggage claim and you are without anything to drink for 6 hours or more.... Pay for water is above and beyond. Some people arrive late and literally have to run to their plane. Hydration is a huge factor in maintaining a good outlook, being able to think clearly, and maintaining ones health-avoiding blood clots etc. . For safety reasons, please offer water! This should be poured and not in individual plastic bottles which are dangerous and polluting."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and professional, the flight was on time as well."
Cons: "Yes it's a budget airline but the seats are not very comfortable and there is absolutely no leg room unless your 5'4 and they do not recline. The seating arrangement is nuts they choose for you, you can choose yourself if you join their club and you still have to pay. The carry on/checking fee is $30 if your bag is 50 lbs or less. Otherwise you will pay $75 I believe. The only thing that is free is water by the cup otherwise the small bottle water is expensive. Yes it's a budget airline so remember, on longer flights I think I would rather pay more and have a more comfortable flight. Also the Airbus 319/320 that they use suck. They are old and you feel a lot of turbulence."
Pros: "The plane was spacious."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable with no recline or movable headrest options. Paying for a carry on bag was outrageous. More expensive than a checked bag. I checked in online and meant to pay for a checked bag, but accidentally payed for a carry on. When I went to check in in the morning for the flight they wouldn't refund me a portion of the money. Paying for soda or juice, also ridiculous. The delays were also absurd. We did not get explanations for why were just sitting on the run way and not taking off."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding. Smooth flight that left online."
Cons: "No entertainment at all on flight, seat wouldn't recline (after paying for one that would), and sat at the gate for hours before finally parking (making us upwards of an hour late...)"
Pros: "Departed on time. Flight generally fine."
Cons: "Baggage service in Denver. Considering that Denver is a major hub for Frontier, I would have thought that the baggage claim process would be good. On the contrary, we and about 15 - 20 other customers waited more than 90 minutes for our baggage. The conveyer belt bringing the baggage up to the carousel stopped twice. The second time, it was not fixed for nearly 30 minutes - AFTER THIS WAS BROUGHT TO THE ATTENTION OF THREE DIFFERENT FRONTIER BAGGAGE PERSONNEL. Frontier baggage personnel were ineffective and indifferent. I asked one Frontier employee about the delays - the only response I got was " They were a little short handed and little behind. " " Total Indifference " seems to bear the Frontier customer service motto as far as baggage is concerned - and I paid for the damn baggage service."
Cons: "Baggage claim. We waited 90 minutes to get our baggage at the main hub of Frontier in Denver. Frontier baggage employees were incompetent and totally disinterested and and had no idea there was any problem with baggage. When this was brought to the attention of three different Frontier employees, no fix was made for nearly thirty minutes - and this was the second time that the conveyor belt stopped. Frontier employees were totally indifferent and did nothing to personally help rectify situation. Customers from multiple flights were waiting extended periods of time. Horrible service and enough to make paying customer refuse to use Frontier in the future."
Pros: "I'll give a thumbs up to a pleasant crew each flight, however, tho both flights were nonstop, both were very late to leave and tho the pilot said he'd make up time going east, that didn't happen and no apologies/explanations. To exacerbate the length of time traveling, both flights baggage retrieval were an hour. Add to that the really ridiculous hour long wait on the runway after landing because a gate wasn't available! Overall Frontier is pretty bad-they obviously do not employ enough people nor implement plans for staying on time or at least working to minimize delays due to weather issues. I have always left late on frontier but succumbed for the last time for a cheaper priced nonstop; it was definitely not worth it. To be clear about judging the length of time: flight out was scheduled to leave 1030 mountain and arrive 400 eastern. It was 630 eastern before we had our bags. Return flight was scheduled 500 eastern departure and 600 arrival mountain. It was 1000 mountain by the time we got our bags. One last comment-there were hundreds of unclaimed bags surrounding the frontier carousel...wonder where they were actually supposed to be???"
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "Arriving early for a change only to sit on the tarmac for over 30 mins waiting to pull into terminal"
Cons: "Seating is extremely uncomfortable. They are fixed, leave little leg room (it is hard to retrieve things from the floor), and very, very firm. Overall it is the most cramped seating I've every encountered on an airline!"
Pros: "It was cheap, which we appreciated. Even paying for carry on did not add much to the price overall. We will use this airline again. The crew were very nice. Our flight was on time and even got us there early."
Cons: "We were not offered water. But I can understand they are trying to cut costs for us. On the return trip, we brought our own water. No big deal. There is very little room onboard, so we felt squished."
Pros: "While the planes were kind of old feeling, the pilots were top notch - giving us some of the smoothest landings I've experienced. :-)"
Cons: "Dinky tray tables"
Pros: "Arriving at Denver, NO gates available...we sat on the tarmac about 1 hour, with the seat belt light lites on. Captain told us there would be a delay until a gate opened up. He, nor any of the stewardesses made any other contact for at least 1/2 hour. Finaly, the captain said we could use the restrooms as we waited. NO contact from the flight crew, or other contact from the Captain until we were finally led to a gate. Communication is everything. It would have eased the temperaments of the passengers a great deal to have more updates, and even the presence of a stewardess. NOTHING>"
Pros: "I didn't like anything about it."
Cons: "Everyone was rude and pushed us through the line then we sat on the tarmac in Denver waiting for another plane to leave then they couldn't find a tarmac operator for the bridge then they couldn't figure out the luggage. Took me 2 hours just to leave FIA after landing."
Cons: "When we checked in at the counter they did not inform us about carry-on charges. Most airlines don't charge fees for carry-ons, but frontier does. We had to pay $60 each for small carry-on at the gate. This practice is unfair to people who are not familiar with cheap airline business models. They should be more transparent about their fees on the ticket and at the counter. This cheap airline is so cheap that they couldn't hire enough staffs at the DCA gate. There's only one staff checking in the tickets at the gate and we had to wait until everyone went into the plane to pay for our $60 check in fees."
Pros: "I'm cool with saving a few bucks and not getting free soda and peanuts."
Cons: "I feel like Frontier takes the no frills thing a bit extreme, and then relies on the customer to work within the confines of their rules without making it super clear what those rules are. Seats a VERY uncomfortable, thin almost non-existent padding over hard plastic. Seats also cost money and you're not offered to buy your seats ahead of time but only when you check in, or if you know ahead how Frontier operates. Puts some folks in the position of having to buy expensive seats on the spot at check in. Also this is my 3rd Frontier flight in as many months and every time something has gone wrong, delays, or computers down. 1 more chance with me on my flight home in 2 weeks. If it messes up again, I'm officially never booking again."
Pros: "Frontier at one time was a decent airline, not any more. You pay to either carry on or check a bag, carry on is more expensive. No reclining seat, no leg room unless you want to pay another added fee for the privilege. No beverage unless you pay extra yet again. Their only redeeming quality was a safe flight and our bags didn't get lost. Never flying Frontier again."
Pros: "The crew was nice and efficient at getting everyone settled; finding space for baggage."
Cons: "Didn't like that my seat was hard and uncomfortable and didn't seem to recline. Both my flights were delayed; waited an hour for baggage transfer from a connecting flight that really should have been sent the next day. Had to pay for a soft drink. Don't like all the extra costs on this airline. Might be more tolerable if the comfort level was higher. No entertainment folks, so be sure to bring your own, along with peanuts, drink or any other snack you may want. I will be sure to research airlines better before booking next time."
Pros: "The crew was lovely and friendly"
Cons: "It was absurd that I had to pay for a carry on and then place it in row 17 when I was sitting in row 4. I boarded when I was supposed to; it was bizarre and several other people faced the same problem. I fly a lot and I think it's happened maybe two other times in ten years that my carry on has been behind me -- and never so far."
Pros: "The staff was very personable and helpful, and there was plenty of leg room onboard. Heading into Denver, our flight was late and the staff let everyone onboard know that our group needed to exit the aircraft first. Those onboard were more that happy to ensure we made our connection."
Cons: "We had difficulty getting checked in as the website crashed and was not available before we headed to the airport. Once there, we did get to the gate easily enough, only to have our flight delayed in Denver. We had to sit on the tarmac for over half and hour before we could get to a gate. I'm also not a big fan of the 'pay for everything separately' type of fare. These days, travel is expensive enough without having to nickel and dime everything, including bags and snacks."
Pros: "I had low expectations since Frontier's switch to low budget. But after accepting the inevitable add-on costs for carry on, seat reservations etc, I found the flight comfortable and efficient. Only gripe is that the seat did not decline, which I assume helps them cram more seats into the cabin."
Pros: "Gate agents and flight crews were very nice people."
Cons: "Seats were barely minimum quality, no entertainment systems, no food (not even a little bag of peanuts or pretzels), flights were late, and on the last leg I missed my connection, partly because we were late, but also because there was no ground crew to get the plane to the gate, so we waited over 15 minutes just meters from the dock, and watched the ground crew handle several other planes down the line, during which time my last flight must have taken off. I was rebooked on the next flight to my destination, even mentioning my checked bag, which I hoped would also be placed on the next flight out. That last flight was also delayed in departing, and when I arrived at my destination, my bag did not. I filed a claim, and was told I'd receive an email with a claim # and contact info, and my bag would be delivered to my home the following day. No emai arrived, and no bag arrived. I have filed another claim via the airline's web site, so we'll see what happens. Also, they charge high prices (IMO) for checked bags, carry-on bags (1 personal item is free), and seat selection. Not as economical as it seems at first! I doubt I will ever use this airline again."
Pros: "My husband said that there was a little more room than usual in the seats, in part bc the seats don't have a full size drop down tray. I did appreciate that the seats were comfortable even though they don't tilt back, and since they don't tilt back, it means you don't have the person in front of you tilting all the way back into your space."
Cons: "Frontier is really just another cheap airline that will charge you extra for everything now. It's annoying enough that you have to pay to get a seat assignment and to take a bag (carry on or check) but when the flight attendant said it would cost be $1.99 to get a cup of coffee, that was it for me. I also found the dinky little half trays annoying - there's no way to do anything on them. and since they don't lock, every child on the plane spent the entire trip dropping them down to hear the loud sound they made. Also with the arm rests. Oy. Also, the board of our flight out of Denver was ridiculous. The flight was delayed quite a bit and then Frontier check in person not once but twice announced we would begin boarding only to then realize it wasn't ready yet and shut the doors. It was really weird."
Cons: "Watch out- Frontier charges you extra for everything, down to choosing your seats on the plane!"
Cons: "Size of tray table, no entertainment, no wifi, literally just sit uncomfortably and stare straight ahead. Man I used to love frontier but y'all are terrible now."
Cons: "The three hour delay which was only partially explained by weather."
Pros: "Not really completely your fault -- but it took all day to get from DC to Denver"
Cons: "for one thing, that Denver would not let us land"
Cons: "Boarding was completely disorganized. The attendant shouted the boarding order which was completely ignored. Our flight was delayed but we didn't know because because the sign indicated that it was "On-time" because we were held in a holding pattern for more than 45 minutes our plane ran low on fuel and we had to be diverted to Colorado Springs to refuel. Because of these delays we missed our connecting flight. We stood in line for more than an hour to see when we could fly out. We were told the airline would not compensate us for a hotel room even though the next flight out was not to be until the afternoon of the next day. Because of a convention in town there were NO hotels available. I am a 70 year old woman and I had to spend the night in the airport with my grandson. I have not had any sleep and we are still waiting (3 & 1/2 hours to go as of now) for our flight out. Because Frontier does not partner (I think this is likely the other way around) with any of the other airlines we could not even get a flight with one of them. Beyond that the seats are plastic with barely any padding and most uncomfortable. I will NEVER use this airline again. I am outraged."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and the plane for the most part was clean."
Cons: "This is a very stripped down way to travel. Expect to be nickeled and dimed for everything. Carry on ran me $40. However, they don't check if you actually paid the carry on fee and put your things in the overhead compartment. I watched people putting the backpacks and other items up there (and they did not pay). Additionally, nothing is for free on board- food and drinks will cost you (even a soda). The worst was not realizing you are assigned a seat (free), I got the middle seat (yay)! If you want to check in and select a seat, it will cost you $9 to $45 for any seat (they also do not recline)... Just crazy! My trip ended up costing me the same amount as a Virgin America ticket I passed up because it was too expensive."
Cons: "The man at the check in counter was rude and I sat in line waiting for over 30 minutes though I arrived at 2. The flight attendants were rude and not very courteous. The flight was also very turbulent. Worst flying experience and I've been flying since I was 5"
Pros: "Nothing of note"
Cons: "Multiple charges that bought 'low' airfare up with others, yet lacked any free perk/service. Felt duped. Nickel-&-dimed for even a drink of water. Took abt an HOUR for luggage to appear! WTF? Hated it. Will not fly Frontier ever again unless desperate."
Pros: "Boarding 21st organized"
Cons: "They would not add my tsa precheck to my ticket when I checked in, I have never had that issue before. And I tried calling in days before the flight to add it but spent almost 30 min on hold on three differnt calls and never got a real person."
Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable, barely any leg room, seats did not recline, seats were narrow. Flight attendants kept repeating messages. I weigh 145 pounds and am 5'11", for me to feel crammed into a seat is ridiculous. I will not be flying frontier any more based on this experience."
