Cons: "I was sitting in 29C (aisle seat) and 2 of the 3 crew members kept running into my aisle-side shoulder and arm. I’m a bigger guy and I understand that occasionally bumps will happen, but 15-20 times on ONE FLIGHT?! The only thing I wanted was an “excuse me” or “pardon me”, you know COMMON COURTESY!"

Pros: "From the friendly welcome greeting at the terminal to the smoothest landing, comfortable seats with lots of legroom and long seatbelts, everything was great."

Pros: "Arrived 5 min early and bags at bag claim in less than 20 min"

Pros: "Average flight..."
Cons: "cramped, pay for everything, flight was packed, asked to check carryon's because there wasn't enough room."

Pros: "um...I got home?"
Cons: "Ugh where to start. First my flight from Oakland was delayed an hour, and while they did rebook me a flight (with a 3-hour layover in Seattle), they couldn't keep me in a first-class seat and didn't offer anything to compensate for that. This was my first time (and probably last time) treating myself to a first-class flight, and I was kind of looking forward to that seat...although I understand if flights are full.. When I arrived (an hour late) in Seattle, the gate was shown as N2, about ten thousand miles away from my debarking gate in the C section. After walking halfway there, I stopped at an Alaska desk to AGAIN verify info and ask if someone could PLEASE CHECK and see if I could keep my first-class seating, since I PAID for one originally and the delay was airline-based. They blandly told me the flights were full and everyone had checked in already, and then mentioned that the gate had been changed BACK to C section, so hike back another 5000 miles to where I started. Wait three hours. I did check in at the gate as well, yet again, to beg with my best smiley-face and see if the girls could find me a first class spot or put me on standby, since I PAID for it. They said, sadly, no it's all full and checked in. Wait and wait. When I finally did board, I noticed that the info board said that "two upgrade requests" had been filled. What? Seriously? Is that MY FIRST CLASS SEAT YOU JUST GAVE SOMEONE? *frowns slightly* Walked through the already-seated first-class cabin, noticing that TWO OF THEM are empty. I was seated in the middle between a regular dude and this woman who is apparently running her company and having a conference call loudly on her phone, right in my ear. So yes, we understand: She's important. After sitting for a few minutes, I finally buzzed an attendant, who finally arrived, and asked her AGAIN, if she could please check if there any first class seats open, because that is what I PAID FOR and I'd appreciate finishing my trip as it was origanally booked. She said she'd check. AND THEN DISAPPEARED FOREVER. Never did see her again. A few minutes later, yet another attendant walked down the aisle with a clipboard, checking for open seats and I'm thinking she's coming to tell me that yes, there's been an opening and one of those 2 empty seats is mine and please go ahead and move. But no. She walks on by and says something about adding more standby people to some empty seats. I'm literally biting my tongue. Then, before I can say anything, these TWO GUYS come flailing down the gangway and bail into the two lovely EMPTY first-class seats in front of me. *scowl* I'm sorry, but unless they were late getting to the plane, and those were actually their seats (could be true), this whole thing was handled very strangely. I never fly first class anyway, and I understand delays and full flights, but it would have been nice to have anyone even attempt to help me finish my trip in the class that I had PAID FOR."

Pros: "I used the call button for the first time because I had ignored the drink service and desperately needed coffee. The flight attendant came back with a smile and got me some of the best coffee I could've asked for."

Pros: "Very friendly staff, on time and professional."

Pros: "Awesome services from the crew, very accommodating"
Cons: "It's all perfect"

Pros: "Great flight attendants!"
Cons: "In coach and very little space. Just like all the other airlines."

Pros: "Overall no complaints about flying from Newark to San Diego. The extra legroom in coach was much appreciated as this is how Alaska sets up their seat configuration. Flight attendants came through numerous times with beverages. Having the free movies available on your personal device great. I also liked having the ability to print out my bag tags I had a time and just dropping off my check in baggage quickly."
Cons: "Only reason I couldn't give 5 stars was limited free snacks as they gave some small cookies. Even having some small bags of chips like they do on JetBlue would be nice. My flight was delayed 90 min, so that was painful."

Cons: "The exit row that I paid up for, for leg room, didn't have extra leg room. First world problems."

Pros: "Crew was quick to help."
Cons: "long flight -- 2nd cup of coffee"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "We had to go back to the gate to correct an interior light problem."

Pros: "The tv is good addition Comfortable chairs"

Cons: "Snacks"

Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Games on the tv were okay. Tetris would be a nice addition."

Pros: "Flight was early into New Orleans"
Cons: "Flight had a lot of turbulence"

Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Wi-Fi not working or hard to get to work. Flight was delayed by an hour and service was very rushed."

Pros: "The crew! You have great people working for you on these routes."
Cons: "This was an easy flight. Nothing bad."

Pros: "My seat was randomly the exit row, so more leg room and pilots made great time"
Cons: "Left 20 minutes late because of travel agents"

Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and concerned about us making our connections"
Cons: "The fact that they didn’t make sure all the paperwork was correct and our delay to NO was due to that issue"

Pros: "Great staff, plenty of room, efficient snack and drink delivery, effluent boarding"

Pros: "Easy transition through customs."

Pros: "Airline was clean and upgraded, flight departed and arrived on time. Crew was courteous and professional."

Cons: "No TVs"

Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Snacks were great!"

Pros: "Great flight . Even got here early"

Pros: "The outbound crew was terrific. The flight itself was fine. We even arrived early."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."

Pros: "Really helpful staff, clean plane, attentive and easy boardiing"
Cons: "The check in was a bit confusing at the airport."

Pros: "Plane nice and comfortable"

Cons: "Paid first class. Got served after people in coach."

Pros: "New aircraft A320"
Cons: "Late,"

Cons: "1 hour flight delay"

Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"

Pros: "I was able to get a gluten free snack"
Cons: "Tried to get an upgrade at the gate and they said our ticket wouldn't allow it."

Pros: "The gate person was very accommodating"
Cons: "It was over 2hrs late due to mechanical problems. Seems to be the norm."

Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."

Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"

Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."
Cons: "The gratis food offering isn't healthy - those bread pretzels, versus the almond & tomato juice I had on the next flight, with ...can't remember the name."

Pros: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled so we didn't have to run to catch our connecting flight."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."

Cons: "Seating was tight"

Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "I would never fly Delta again! What you have done to the leg room, seating reminds of living in a third world country!"

Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"

Pros: "Personnel and crew handled the problem in a professional manner doing everything in their power to make the best of a bad situation. Another plane was provided within a reasonable time frame."
Cons: "Four hour delay. Boarded and then being told after 40 minutes that the problem was not fixable."

Cons: "No space."

Pros: "Delta provided a superior experience!"

Pros: "crew was great"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The crew was great"

Cons: "They claim to be cleaning these planes but I find that hard to believe when there is Gum on the window sill. We were also delayed quite a bit in the boarding process. Also I would imagine that during Covid-19 these companies would do a better job of not overbooking flights but all of my flights with American this past weekend were overbooked. Which delayed us even longer as they searched for volunteers to adjust their flights. In today's age of technology the idea that they are still overbooking planes makes no sense to me in the slightest. I will be walking, driving or taking a boat before I fly American Airlines again."

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

Cons: "Bumped from first class to coach."

Cons: "WiFi"

Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "The salad was included two unmentioned items that were unwelcome: bleu cheese and pasta."

Cons: "Everything, especially an AA customer representative. Very rude, inconsiderate, and unprofessional."

Pros: "Crew was great. Flight delayed due to lavatory door not closing. Then+0, 20 minutes of papaerwork. Followed by no one able to operate bridge when landed for 20 minutes."
Cons: "Delays,"

Pros: "Someone got sick but the crew helped her right away. An ambulance was already waiting for her. Flight despite this arrived on time."
Cons: "Snacks"

Pros: "Like clockwork. New plane."

Cons: "the fact that they rushed everyone only to have you wait in the ramp"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight got delayed which caused me to miss the last flight for my connecting flight."

Cons: "They lost and cant track my baggage. Very poor customer service."

Cons: "How does a ground crew not know a plane is coming in late. How is there no one here for baggage. It's a joke."

Cons: "inadequate ventilation"

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."

Pros: "LOVED the spacious leg room on that aircraft!"
Cons: "The lady beside me and everyone else listened to her audio book."

Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "This new low life category where you cannot even pay to be treated like a human."

Pros: "Seats were nice, service came pretty quickly considering the size of the plane, boarding went reasonably quick"
Cons: "Started boarding and didn't announce another delay till we're on the aircraft, sitting in the gate for an hour and a half. My audio jack was broken and regardless, it will still trying to charge me for everything even though i was force to be squashed between two people who are also frustrated about sitting doing nothing."

Pros: "Attendants are always friendly; always a peaceful travel event"

Pros: "Roomy seats"
Cons: "Long wait for clearance"

Pros: "Travel time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight. The charging stations come in between legs space and very uncomfortable they got to be re adjusted. Make sure these are taken care in upcoming flights."

Pros: "it was a bit bumpy all the way to NOLA, but we still got drinks and snacks, and flight attendants were very nice"

Pros: "On time and what was advertised. Considering that the flight was after Thanksgiving and very full, we still had a good experience."

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: "Not a fan of baggage fees especially this high for only one checked. Next time Southwest Air, I guess."

Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "American advertised free TV and movies streamed to your device via a card placed in the seatback pocket and in the flight attendant's announcement. Although the card stated, "This Flight. Free Entertainment..." I was informed that there was, in fact, no such feature."

Pros: "Cabin was clean. Flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "Their snacks were merely a cookie which was okay, but not what I would have wanted."

Cons: "Middle seat and one of the last ones on. Enough said"

Pros: "I made it safely to my destinations and in a timely manner."
Cons: "The lack of space to breathe. Being herded like cattle to our seats. The fact that in flight service BARELY made it to the back of the plane before we landed."

Pros: "The entertainment system. It was awesome. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing notable."

Pros: "Pilot was very communicative, which was great but plane was 1 hour late and we had a mechanical problem while taxing, pilots fixed it while still on the ground. Not their fault those planes are 35 years old, come on!"
Cons: "Stop flying MD80's, please! 35 year old planes!"

Pros: "Everything was very pleasant for myself and my four year old grandson. Have never had any problems flying with American Airlines. Thank you"

Pros: "Tvs on last flight"
Cons: "Overnight delay in Dallas."

Pros: "Easy to navigate site. Was given Pre-check on one leg, which was nice."
Cons: "Had to purchase a seat on one leg, resulting in an extra $12. That was a surprise."

Cons: "Internet is kinda hard to get connected to sometimes."

Pros: "Flights were on time and smooth. Some of the planes were fairly new."
Cons: "Paid for each bag, on one regional flight the.plane was falling apart on the inside with no padding on the seat, armrest padding coming off the seats in multiple seats."

Pros: "Captain and crew were capable and friendly."

Pros: "I loved the price more than anything else. All the staff were friendly and professional. Every flight was on time with no delays."

Pros: "they cancelled the flight and they did not say anything, then the crew in the airport were very rude with everyone."

Cons: "seats were very uncomfortable"

Pros: "I like the seat is comfortable, I have enough legroom everywhere (by every seats)."
Cons: "I didn't like the snack what I get."

Pros: "I received help from the staff at the airport when I wasn't sure what to do."
Cons: "My flight was changed a few times so I was sitting in the airport for seven hours before I was even informed on which flight I would actually be on. Horrible experience."

Cons: "Flight delayed. Seats are not very comfortable."

Pros: "We have no other complaints. It was all good."
Cons: "There was no air conditioner on the airplane . made it very uncomfortable ."

Pros: "power outlets & TV"
Cons: "crew was cranky"

Cons: "Poor cew service"

Cons: "Our flight was over 1.5 hours delayed but the AA staff at the desk wouldnt give any updates despite it being clear we were severely delayed."

Pros: "What mede this trip so poor was that the agent at the desk informed me that as I was boarding the plane my carry on suitcase had to be checked due to limited space in the overhead bins. This is the same carry on that I have stored in overheads on literally over 100 flights including a United flight 4 days earlier. I was the approximately the fith passenger to board in group 3 and after I let her check my bag I walked on to the plane to see not only was it only one quarter full of passengers, most of the overhead bins were completely empty. So I had to go to baggage claim to get my checked bag after we landed which took almost 40 minutes. Very frustrating!"
Cons: "See above!"

Pros: "The price for flight was great. Layover was perfectly timed and didn’t have to wait long before boarding."

Pros: "Flight attendant hooked it up with a whole open isle of seating and free drinks!"

Pros: "It was a good flight- friendly staff and crew."

Pros: "Great crew"

Cons: "Couldn’t finish check in process without checking a bag"

Pros: "The time between boarding and departure was limited."
Cons: "It was hot and the pilot sped up through turbulence to land on time. The wind was too rough to fly fast through, I almost needed the "barf bag"."

Pros: "Everything went well"
Cons: "I loved everything"

Pros: "I was able to change my seat since mine was all the way in the back. very happy about that."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I didn’t like that the plane took off before the takeoff time and thus I missed my flight. No explanation. No apologies. This was also the last flight out to NOLA and you would think they would take that into consideration. Nope."

Pros: "Even with a nearly hour delay to switch planes, the captain and crew were very good at keeping people informed of the situation. The plane we were supposed to be on was having mechanical issues and rather than waiting until we were boarded and sitting on the plane until the issues were resolved (which coincidentally happened on my earlier flight for 1.5 hrs) the stopped boarding, which made a bad situation a little less crummy."
Cons: "Being delayed an hour for an red-eye flight sucks no matter what the circumstances, but better safe than sorry"

Pros: "Very nice employees. The trip was good. Unfortunately, the plane was delayed for a fueling off load for 45 minutes but it all worked out just fine."
Cons: "NONE"

Pros: "Very late - no communication from gate agents."

Pros: "Besides being tired and walking what felt like 3 miles to new gate I have not issues to report."
Cons: "I chose to fly Southwest on the way back and for less money I received better service. If you find a reasonably priced flight you don't have to worry about paying extra for baggage or stomach during the flight. On the flight home, I realized that they have bigger seats, your bags ( 1 personal, 1 carry-on, and 2 checked bags) are "free" and they give you a little snack to hold you for maybe and hour. Overall I prefer Southwest because of all the benefits you get while flying with them but it doesn't mean I will never fly United again."

Pros: "Upgraded to forst xlass minute and super glad I did. My flight company was the perfect stranger to talk like with and the flight attendant was quite lovely and accomodating."
Cons: "This is about my 3rd FC experience where the 2nd meal option was not availbale for everyone. other than that drink service was prompt and bountiful!"

Cons: "I was informed at check in that I could not bring a carry on bag. Therefore, I had to pay to check my bag. However, all other passengers on the plane brought carry on bags. Then, upon arrival in New Orleans, my bag failed to arrive. My bag was still in Chicago."

Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Too tight to sit in seat"

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant & helping. There was a gentlemen I sat beside with a service dog the size of a horse! He (diesel) was a gentle giant. The crew were dog lovers so they took care of diesel like he was a rock star!"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "Pilot communicated everything"
Cons: "Late takeoff"

Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "My group got separated, as well as a few other groups I saw. There was no effort made by the airport staff to accommodate any of us."

Pros: "On time. Comfortable"

Cons: "The plane being overbooked, having to check my carry on bag. Making me late to my event having to wait at the carousel."

Pros: "Wish all the major airlines would have more flight options from ORD and MSY, but all went well"
Cons: "Fast and painless"

Pros: "'Nuff said"
Cons: "Everything else was great!!!"

Pros: "Nice new comfortable seats"

Cons: "Grinding and whining while plane in taxi- extremely loud frinding when landing gear engaged and disengaged"

Pros: "Timely Clean"
Cons: "Too much carry-on luggage slow loading and exiting of the airplane"

Cons: "I was forced to check my carry on because others were allowed to bring several carry one bags I counted 18 passengers that were allowed to bring 3 carry one bags & a personal item to store under the seat so if you are in the 3rd, 4th or 5tn boarding group there isn't any overhead storage available I paid to check check my other luggage so I would follow the rules others should be made to do the same I worried all the way to New Orleans that my carry would be lost"

Pros: "couldn't access wifi. crowded cabin. passengers being loud/obtrusive. long delay for takeoff."

Pros: "Excellent service!"

Pros: "Excellent responsive service start to finish."

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Beyond making sure we were comfortable."

Cons: "No usb hookup. No food"

Pros: "On time and direct"

Cons: "Same comment as above"

Pros: "The people at the gate and on the plane were nice. But I flew United Airlines not Lufthansa."
Cons: "Really sad that you have to pay extra money to watch the monitors on the back of the headrest for a 2.5 trip. That's crappy. And then there is a point when you're out of the Directv Range. We're paying more for flights and then they have flight waitresses trying to monetize the time you're in the air. And when I was checking in in Berlin this guy was asking me a ton of questions, but didn't ask the next 5 people any questions. When I stared at him he started asking others questions. It's really none of your business why I'm going somewhere or what I'm doing. These terrorist attacks are giving people authority they have no business having."

Pros: "Yes!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Plane was new"
Cons: "They want $40 for a carry on backpack! And you have to pay more to choose a seat snd even more for one that reclines... the space under the seats is purposely blocked to only fit tiny bags so they can charge you. A low cost airline is not low cost I'd think they make you pay extra for every little thing. It's very misleading."

Cons: "The 2.5+ hour delay"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everthing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Worst airline ever"

Cons: "In less than 24 hours I cancelled my reservation but they don't refund unless you cancel 7 days in advance, but I bought the ticket less than two days before my travel date and then cancelled the next day in the 24 hour grace period. They said I could get a credit to use in the next 3 months,but I will not be needing a ticket in The next three months. My travels are over. I am really pissed off. I will NEVER FLY FRONTIER again."

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Arriving early"
Cons: "Having to pay for basics"

Cons: "The Flamingo. We began our vacation with Frontier Airlines on a note of apparent tension between the attendants and boarding passengers. Having not been a frequent flyer, I assumed that this was normal in post 9/11. The male attendant had a cold demeanor, until he was chatting up passengers to buy snacks and drinks. Why sell bar drinks when there is enough disorderly conduct in the air? The plane was cold, noisy and the outside air currents were choppy. No conversation from the pilot was forth coming as to what to expect during the flight. Then there was a the Master Card Commercial. It's bad enough to be crammed into a noisy old plane, but to have to be subjected to a lengthy pitch for a credit card is inexcusable. Sandra Fliniau flight 04-09-2017"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Beverages and snacks not complimentary on flight??? Have never seen this."

Pros: "It was fast easy simple. I thought charging for hand luggage as crazy but they seemed flexible about what a purse is. Ate nothing, didn't watch anything. Stewardesses warm and friendly."

Cons: "MY LUGGAGE WAS LOST!!!"

Pros: "Our flight was cancelled. We were given a 1-800 number to call to rebook. The guy was in India, slow computer, kept putting me on hold. 2 hours later, no rebooking, no resolution and I was postal. I missed the funeral of my relative, so did my kids. Horrible service, I will never fly Frontier again. What a nightmare. I kept asking for a manager or supervisor and was told there was no one."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Layover for 12 hours no snacks"

Pros: "Staff great , very nice new plane"
Cons: "Hard seats Small space"

Pros: "Left on time, landed on time. Seats were comfortable, what more would you need for an hour and a half flight"

Cons: "."

Pros: "Arriving"
Cons: "Constant waiting and delays and ridiculous fees. Would be better to charge more instead of deceptive charges."

Pros: "Safety instructions worth the funny copy was great."

Cons: "Fronter seems to be delayed often"

Pros: "That they got me to where I was going with out falling out of the sky."
Cons: "Baggage claim times, accommodations and non-caring attitudes."

Cons: "The plane departed 45 minutes behind schedule. When we arrived, 20 people or so did not receive their luggage. Frontier representatives were nowhere to be found. Finally someone came and herded us upstairs, gave us no information about our luggage, and had us form a line to file a claim. Frontier staff was utterly unapologetic and had no sense of urgency. I still don't know where my bag is. The plane was supposed to land at 12:45, and I left the airport at 3:30 and missed an important work meeting."

Pros: "The staff and pilots were great!"
Cons: "The seat I spent extra for."

Pros: "The friendliness of the flight attendants, as well as the help I received at the check-In desk."
Cons: "The comfort of the seats, I'm 6-4" the room available is tiny for me."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Size of seats"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Got a cheap flight but little did I know that that would be offset by being nickeled and dimed for seats, bags, and drinks. On top of that th plane was five hours late from its start point and the only information the gate agents would give (with an attitude) was the plane was coming. I called customer service to see if they were offering any restitution for this, and I was told that's not up to him. I will never never never fly frontier ever again."

Cons: "The flight attendants said I was on the plane when I in fact was not and they gave my seat away to someone (had the person act like they were me) now I am stuck in Philly for 2 days"

Pros: "On first off first"
Cons: "Too small of a plane and was charged for my one and only carry on bag which was to standard size"

Cons: "O couldn't take the flight because the cost of my luggage exceeded the costed my fight & was not allowed to cancel for refund of any kind."

Pros: "The cost was low, so it made the return part of my trip easier to pay for."
Cons: "I had not been prepared for how "no frills' your airline is, so I didn't know to expect rigid chairs with no adjustment, and that all items offered in flight were to be paid for. It wasn't a long flight, so I didn't miss not have a snack or drink, but I didn't know any of that in advance. My fault for not checking into it a little more, but it was a whirlwind trip to move my daughter and the travel was Spartan but necessary."

Cons: "the pilot almost crashed the plane"

Cons: "You have to pay extra for your seat - if you want to sit with your party and not be scattered all over the plane. You have to pay for your carry on and you have to of course pay for your checked bag. So everything you saved on the cost of the flight is eaten up with the extras."

Pros: "The flight attending Andrew was very rude. Rude to me and many others. I felt it was the worst experience ive had on a flight, i fly often."

Cons: "Even had to pay for ONE carry on. Ridiculous. Everything was a charge, even selecting a spot to sit. Not what I expected."

Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather. No other to help with rebooking or solutions to being stranded in the airport. Calls and emails all fell on death ears. As a Colorado resident I try to fly frontier exclusively, no more. I will never give my money to this failing airline."

Cons: "See above"

Cons: "183$ in seating and luggage fees AFTER the base ticket price...I wasn't made aware of these charges until I went to check in for my flight. No leg room. Seats don't recline. Tray table about the size of an iPhone 6. No entertainment. No snacks. All drinks cost money. Rude staff. Just a disaster of an experience. I'll never fly frontier again."

Pros: "The Denver people who helped"
Cons: "My brand new suitcase was broken after paying for it to be checked. My clothes and bath bag was on the pick up alone. When it was in my bag. Had to ask for tape to keep it somewhat closed to the rode and hotel. Still no email from frontier !"

Pros: "Flight crew was very pleasant both ways, but didn't make the trip worth it with all the negatives."
Cons: "Frontier's electronic tickets don't work at security. The added fees were ridiculous. Paying for a SEAT and a CARRY-ON is outlandish! They even charge for water. Seriously? The new seats are extremely uncomfortable, the armrests are cold metal, and the seats don't recline. They tray tables are about the size of a small romance novel. We felt incredibly duped. I will gladly pay more to fly an alternate airline. I hope to never fly this airline again."

Pros: "Great fare.awesome staff.had to wait to load bags.but will fly again"
