Pros: "Was a good flight . Everyone was friendly."

Pros: "I paid 60 bucks for an emergency row exit, take get some extra leg room and space so that I would be fresh when I arrived in Munich. However KLM allowed a passenger — who did not pay for the emergency row to sit next to me because he needed the extra space because he was a liarge man, and clearly didn’t fit very well in the economy seats. Thus I I lost all the extra space and actually would of preferred a regular economy seat. that would’ve been more preferential then paying $60 and getting less space than I would’ve had it in a regular economy. I understand the other passengers comfort was important and if that was the case he should’ve paid $60 as well."
Cons: "I did not get a choice of seat for the one and a half hour flight from Amsterdam to Munich and I sat in a middle row for the first time in 20 years."

Pros: "On Time, comfortable seats, good coffee and mixed nuts, smooth flight and landing."

Cons: "I srill dislike the idea of purchasing food and paying baggage fees separately from the tickets. Creates inconvenience as well as at least three separate transactions, increasing your exposure to possible credit card data theft."

Cons: "NA"

Pros: "The space"
Cons: "No TVs"

Pros: "Comfortable seats, friendly staff."

Pros: "The initial boarding process was quick, smooth flight"

Pros: "Had tv & movies available but kept losing signal"
Cons: "Terrible turbulence. Very rough landing. No beverage service. Late taking off."

Pros: "Despite small aircraft, boarding was fast and easy. On time departure and arrival. And quite clean aircraft despite a very fast turnaround. And Biscoff!!!!

Cons: "Super delayed. Sat on runway for 2.5 hours"

Pros: "The gate agents and flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "We were not able to choose our seats until we got to the airport. Which was a waste of time since we did online check in but still needed to go to the self check for seat assignment.

Cons: "If they can’t serve beverages. Can we be allowed o e water bottle through security?"

Cons: "All seats were booked, no covid-19 social distancing"

Cons: "No overhead space"

Pros: "Flight attendant was beyond excellent, Yaniel, who smiled and greeted me helping me to my singular seat on the right side of the plane. He was very professional and kind, with a very well appearance and a fantastic attitude. He was quick with delivering my snack and coffee. Very pleased!!!! First flight attendant to ever make the trip as exceptional as possible. Thank you Yaniel very much."
Cons: "Unbelievable wait times at LGA. Late arrival of plane, extremely late departure at over an hour passed original departure time. Waste of money choosing that ticket and time frame when it was clearly not a concern of American Airlines that I was missing my rides, late getting to CMH etc."

Cons: "Waited an extra 30 minutes for luggage to be loaded. Every American ( British airways partner) flight we took was delayed."

Pros: "On time! That pretty much says it all. I think American did a great job at everything they had control of."
Cons: "Having connecting flights that seem like they are miles apart. I’m sure there is a good reason for this but it is annoying to have to change concourses at these huge airports."

Cons: "I guess I was lucky to get a seat at all, since this last leg of my itinerary was deleted from my ticket when I got to the airport. So my bag couldn't be checked through, and they wanted to charge me for it even though it was a connection to the international flight I had just taken. A truly dreadful experience."

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: "see above"

Cons: "The flight was perfect."

Pros: "Customer service in general"
Cons: "Boading could be smoother. Some customers had a hard time to put a luggage into the upper compartment and blocked a passage."

Cons: "I'm pregnant, and didn't have time before my connecting flight to get food at the airport. I was sitting near the back of the plane, and was ready to purchase food. By the time the cart reached my row, all the food options were literally sold out. I ate the free cookie and had some apple juice, but wanted something with some protein. I guess I'll remember to pack more snacks next time."

Pros: "worst experience. Airplane people not so good"

Cons: "The seats were so old, I didn't have a screen to watch movies on and it was really really cold"

Cons: "I would like to see passengers behave better. One lady pushed in at boarding and went ahead despite the checker telling her she was out of order, Another passenger used both underseat storage in front of him and under him so the person in back of him had no place to put things. Staff should try hard"

Pros: "Ues"

Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "The plane was only 3 seats across, one seat, aisle, two seats. Very tiny!"

Pros: "This was my first experience flying United. The staff and pilot were friendly even though everyone seemed grumpy and tired. There was a poor baby that cried almost the whole flight-I get it, I was tired and wanted to cry too...ha! They handled everyone with patience and a smile."
Cons: "When we landed in Columbus we were stuck on the plane for almost a half hour because there were issues with the walking bridge. This was annoying."

Cons: "Given that the airline tickets were purchased together many months ago, it would have been nice if we - husband and wife - would have had side-by-side seating. In the computer age of 2018, that cannot be very difficult to orchestrate."

Cons: "This airline is never on time. Their employees are rude and unhelpful. Planes were dirty! I won’t fly them again"

Pros: "That I was able to take my dog with me on the plane."
Cons: "the seats were too small."

Pros: "No frills with this airline. Very lean operation. The crew in the City and onboard were bright and positive and handled disgrunted crowds in an effective but respectful way. Pilot was excellent. Airline provided food vouchers for delayed flights."
Cons: "Delayed flight 4 times. Seats are waay uncomfortable."

Cons: "Our plane landed late, we boarded late, and arrived in Columbus nearly an hour late."

Pros: "Stewardess"
Cons: "Seats are pathetic, screaming baby behind me for 3 hrs....not your fault. Charge for snacks not what was advertised on pamphlet...way overcharged.."

Pros: "new planes"
Cons: "seats do not recline."

Cons: "Delay delay delay. Was not aware of all the costs added on, with paying for carry on, and water. Even the staff seemed to know the airline was not worth anything. No pride in their work or workplace."

Pros: "Comfortable flight, cheap rates"
Cons: "Some maintenance problems prior to boarding, gate agents not well prepared for situation, very hard to hear and understand their PA announcements"

Pros: "The cost was good... until the $60 carry-on charges."
Cons: "Maintenance issues. Delays. Horribly uncomfortable seats (I've never seen an airline with less padding in their seat). Rude stewardess. Just avoid at all costs."

Cons: "I don't like paying $45 for a carry on"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They canceled my ticket without telling me me made me miss work after driving two hours to get there and everyone was so rude! Was the worst experience ever toatally messed everything up."

Pros: "Tried to get the lowest price."
Cons: "Humor"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "The hour wait for bags. No joke"

Pros: "very affordable, we got there safely"
Cons: "they were late, serve drinks only one time, no room for legs"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Had to cancel whole trip instead of just the one flight to Las Vegas that was cancelled VERY VERY last minute because flight crew never showed... how the hell does an airline allow that to happen?!? It put us in a situation where we had to spend 3000 dollars on flight tickets with another airline because they didn't have any outgoing flights for another 3 days... which is absolutely insane, ESPECIALLY during the holidays. I will never book with them again and I don't understand how they are still in business. Completely unacceptable."

Pros: "Cost & crew on plane were good."
Cons: "2hr delay Boarding pass and screen display for which gate didn't match. Gate officially changed twice Announcement's for which gate were wrong. (in experienced person) My HUGE gripe is the temperature on the plane. It was so hot I was sweating on both trips. Also, the seats were so close and had armrests that were fixed in the down position. Ingress / egress was hard for me and for others too. On the return flight our plane was making weird noises on decent. It made several people nervous. (I've been flying for 25 yrs)"

Cons: "I'm 5'2" and I felt cramped! We thought we were saving money but by the time they were done charging us for every little thing, we could have flown an airline with seats that actually recline."

Cons: "Mass confusion on correct gate, boards in airport incorrect. Frontier had to change brakes on plane which resulted in over an hour delay. I appreciate safety but they cant arrange a better majntenance program at their main hub? Reading lights above me did not work for the second time on this trp. Sat in the dark in a plastic bucket seat. Awful. I never want to fly frontier again."

Cons: "Extra price for luggage Extremely long lines Asked for money back for mistake on number of bags and was told no"

Pros: "Any of my ratings other than excellent relate only to the fact Frontier is a great airline on a budget, so some issues like food and entertainment are not addressed. I had a great flight."

Pros: "They delayed then cancelled flight. Refunded 1/4 of paid round trip price. Cost 3 people extra 3k for hotels and flights to get home! "Our policy is what it is" I was told. Never Again."

Cons: "Can't recline"

Pros: "Cancelled. can’t see my family now."

Pros: "One lady had a medical problem after we had boarded and had to find her luggage to be taken off, the whole ordeal only lasted about 15 minutes"

Cons: "You have to pay for everything. It was $45 to check a bag, and $40 to store a bag in the overhead compartment. My husband and I would have had to pay an additional $30 to sit next to each other. On the flight out, the stewardess asked us if we wanted to buy any food or drinks, but never offered even free water. The seats are horribly uncomfortable. I was in the middle seat on a red eye, and I was so cramped and sore, I couldn't fall asleep for more than a minute. I landed feeling exhausted, sore, and miserable. This was my first and last time flying on Frontier."

Pros: "The crew were nice and polite."
Cons: "Crowded, uncomfortable seating. Flight was overbooked. Had to pay extra for everything."

Pros: "Good price cool staff"
Cons: "Wow it is so cramped. Need to get the AC working too hot"

Pros: "I am not the type of person to complain about something that is expensive, if I am receiving the services I am paying for. Therefore, I cannot complain too much about Frontier since I paid so little and received what was promised: a round-trip flight at an affordable price. I understand that, in order to be competitive, stay open for business, and keep rates low, Frontier must find additional ways to accrue income besides the base fare. However, literally everything beyond a basic ticket was vastly overpriced. "You want to bring more than two tee-shirts and a book? $30." "You want a childs ration of nuts and a soda in flight? $12. You can place them on your 3 inch tray table." And then, as we near the end of an already insufferably uncomfortable flight, we must endure a 20 minute long speech over the PA about the Frontier rewards credit card. I truly appreciate that Frontier Airlines offers competitively unheard of rates for a basic fare. But aside from being allowed to bring a only a change of shirt to Denver for the weekend, sitting in a dingy/cramped plane next to a stranger because I would not pay $42 extra to sit next to a friend, and being forced to listen to the desperate plea of a credit card signup quota, I will next time happily pay the traditional rate to take a flight somewhere where I am treated like I am not a passenger on a Malaysian Airlines flight that has somewhere along the way become lost between the importance of customer satisfaction and competitive prices."
Cons: "Maybe I should have chosen to write that down here instead. Although I am sure I will not be charged additional fees to both compliment and complain, I believe this all goes to the same department."

Pros: "Great flight, on time, smooth"

Pros: "Best value for price you could ask for."

Pros: "Check in and the security screen took an hour and a half, flight delayed an hour in beautiful weather. NO TSA Pre-Check at Frontier's home base."

Pros: "Airfare appeared to be affordable and competitive. Typical flying experience."
Cons: "I just took a small backpack and duffel bag. They made me pay $40 each way for the duffel bag! I thought every airline at least gave you a personal item and carry-on. This put me in a position of having to put $80 on my personal card for a work trip or to abandon my bag. Ridiculous! I don't like being put in that situation and will remember it next time I go to book. I also recognize they need to make some money off of snacks and drinks, but to not even provide a complimentary drink of water feels extra stingy too."

Pros: "The flight was direct. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "I wasn't told it would cost to have a carry on. There was no free drinks or snacks and no free entertainment options on board."

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The most acute plane discomfort imaginable"

Cons: "We reserved a seat and PAID an upgraded price for the reserved seats and they put us on stand by! They were so rude about it as well. I will never fly with them again"

Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "Just ridiculous, as follows: 1-Deceptive web page at check in makes you think paying extra for seats is required 2-Seats don't recline unless you PAY EXTRA 3-Carry on bag? PAY EXTRA 4-Care for a Soda? PAY EXTRA 5-Tray table - the size of a business envelope? Really? 6-In-flight magazine? HA! Read the safety info or the back of the barf bag, that's all Frontier provides. 7-Paid $50 each to upgrade seats to front (1st class?) No refreshments, no amenities, just a bigger tray table and a reclining seat. For $50. Sat on tarmac for 1.5 hours in 90 degree heat. I know this because I could hear the pilot yelling over the radio that it was 90 degrees in the plane. No A/C while on tarmac because APU was down, according to pilot announcement. Everyone I talked to felt deceived by the online check in and the extra charge for seats (if you want to sit with your party, otherwise no guarantees). Bad representation, deceptive web check in, uncomfortable plane, zero amenities unless you PAY EXTRA. Sorry Frontier, but FAIL!!!!"

Pros: "Direct from CMH to DIA"
Cons: "Seats are one shade shy from a metal folding chair, they don't recline, charge for everything g except water! Who charges for carry on bags!?!? Frontier!!!"

Cons: "It wasn't the flight from Orlando To Cincinnati that I was upset about. I was suppose to catch a flight out of Columbus straight through to Orlando Only to find out they overbooked the flight. I had to drive another 3 hours to Cincinnati Airport to catch a flight 8 hours after original flight. I will not be booking with Frontier!"

Pros: "I really enjoyed my trip on Frontier airlines. It was efficient, the planes were clean and the staff friendly. I gave lower marks on food and entertainment because there was no entertainment aside from the magazines I brought and the food was a pay as you go affair, which I didn't use."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't care for was being charged $40 for a carry on bag. On the return flight. I didn't have checked bags."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Paying for a seat"

Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "The whole trip was very nice"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "the male flight attendant on our flight was spectacular. he was helpful during boarding, and was kind enough to not disturb our sleeping baby (which I'm sure the entire flight appreciated) while handling the flight. he was also friendly and quietly attentive throughout the flight. i regret not catching his name, but my wife and i both commented on how pleasant he was."
