This affects ,sometimes, how luggage is handled especially when you land in another country and you have to manually transfer your own - and nobody tells you. You actually change airlines. Itinerary implies West Jet controls the entire thing. Not the case.

Not very nice☹️ Only Chardonnay & Merlot wines were available. if you're going to carry two full bodied wines then you should carry two light wines as well. For example a Riesling or Pinot noir. I could not drink either of the wines delta carried. Furthermore, I tend to eat low carb & sugar snacks. All the snacks offered were high in carbs except the peanut packs. Delta only had one peanut pack on board. They had many pretzels , bananas & yogurt bars which were high sugar & carbs! Try carrying some Greek plain yogurt & unsweetened vanilla almond milk. TY for your attention."

Pros: "I like to staff and flight."
Cons: "My legs are too long for the seats"
Cons: "On both segments of the trip American changed my seat which I. I’d not realize until boarding. Way to late to protest. You pay for preferred seating but then get bumped to a lousy seat with no explanation. Likely because I was a single traveler and an American employee wanted my seat. Better not happen on the return flight"
Cons: "It is clearly the policy or American Airlines to discriminate against passengers based on their class of flight"

Cons: "Plane was very dated, food service was aweful..... bag of chips in first class."
Cons: "Not very helpful in rebooking"
Cons: "The first class flight attendants were VERY RUDE to the passengers getting on the plane, especially the male flight attendant. While serving drinks, instead of saying things like "pardon me", they would say "move" (as was said directly to me) and get out of the way" (as I herd him say to another passinger). Very disrespectful way to treat a person, let alone a paying customer! Btw...I am a middle class 5' 11" tall college educated male."

Cons: "Nearly missing the flight that my luggage did not arrive with me that I had to go back to airport 6 hours later to get it!!!!!"
Pros: "The cue was great. Did not try the food! Overall I had a ver good experience. The seats on the airline needed more leg and seer room . The space was uncomfortable. And I am not a fat person"
Cons: "I guess the same! The crue was very nice and helpful! It's the space that was shared with the other person that was painful"
Pros: "The seats had head rests"

Cons: "Plane was cold! But better than hot!"
Pros: "A FUN HAPPY TIME AS THE CHAPS WHO SAT EITHER SIDE OF ME WERE CHATTY AND HUMOROUS - THEY WERE HAPPY THAT COLUMBUS DAY WAS TO BE CELEBRATED THIS PAST MONDAY AND WHEN I TOLD THEM I WAS TO CELEBRATE CANADIAN THANKSGIVING WITH MY SON AND HIS AMERICAN WIFE AND THEIR 2 CHILDREN - WELL LET'S JUST SAY THE 3 HOURS OF THE FLIGHT FLEW BY. SMILE"
Pros: "It was the worst trip I have ever taken. Delayed 2 hours due to air traffic control problems, then they landed us in Baltimore and decided we were gonna take buses to Newark. They put us back on the plane and drove around the runway for 2 more hours until I finally had a panic attack. I got off. Then they pulled everyone off and 3 busses took us to NJ, arrival at 4 a.m....HORRIBLE crew had timed out, horrible stewards served up water in cups and were yelling at people to sit saying we were NOT getting off the plane."
Cons: "UNITED AIR"
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "It was just fine."
Pros: "We loved the small terminal at Sky Harbor, with the cute little discounted parking lot, no more that 100 feet away. We loved the location of Avis Rental Car, directly across from the baggage pick-up exit doors, at Regional Southwest. Our flights were all on-time, and the crew was extremely professional."
Cons: "No need for reclining seats. These cause a problem with leg room, for the person behind the "recliner.""
Pros: "Plane was fine but cheap seats suck"
Cons: "It was a miserably long weather delay that turned into a sleepless. nIght in the airport and on the too cold plane. Not their fault, they kept us updated but updates were always more delays."
Pros: "Uneventful, on time! Knees will never be the same, but small price to pay - or so I'm led to believe by your marketing. Also paid 10 bucks for internet- seems excessive."
Pros: "Not really impressed"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, plane clean and comfortable"
Cons: "It's about time airlines offer a better snack without paying for it! The sweet wafer is not enough neither are the tiny bags of pretzels!"
Cons: "The seats are Uncomfortable. The food no longer exists. They give you two ounces of drink"
Cons: "After booking my flight months in advance United change are seating and separated us. Spent hours on the phone with no explanation and no assistance. Didn't even help me upgrade when I was willing to pay for it. The worst of it all was the nonsense that their customer service kept spewing. Brushed and straight up lied to. Will do everything possible to never fly united again"
Pros: "Lost flight other one took longer not happy"
Cons: "Lost flight other took too long"
Pros: "Flight attendant very friendly and helpful Seat row layout of 1 and 2 On time Legroom adequate Smooth flight"

Cons: "The amount of luggage people bring as carry ons."
Cons: "Rude staff,"
Pros: "Flight staff was wonderful."
Cons: "Newark Airport. The terminal was probably 60 degrees. Navigation signs were the least helpful of any airport I've flown out of or into."
Pros: "Finally arriving at the destination."
Cons: "We were stranded in Newark with little to no air conditioning in 90 degree heat. Our flight was delayed 9 HOURS. I lost an entire day of my family's vacation because of United Airlines and their massive blunder. They said it was because there was no air conditioning, but at the same time they said their crew clocked out and we had to wait for new personnel to man the plane. I find it hard to believe that this couldn't be foreseen and avoided. By the time we finally got our crew, we then had to await for a storm to pass, and then 40 other planes had to take off first. All United offered in apology were $10 vouchers that expire in two days, and a free drink on the plane."
Pros: "On time and friendly to Portland as always."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled in Newark for an unknown reason. Luggage was then delayed because nobody from united cared to change it onto the new flight I was assigned to."
Cons: "Please read above--I was standing at the gate waiting to board when the gate rep told me and another passenger there was only one seat left--on a flight I was confirmed on! The other passenger said he had a family obligation and the rep handed him the last ticket before I could get a word out. I felt so disrespected and like my business and money meant nothing to United. Then began my saga to get to Portland. Unbelievable."
Pros: "There were empty seats and the very polite flight attendant offered for me to move without me having to ask."
Cons: "I arrived at my final destination and walked to baggage claim. I was just standing there waiting when a young girl walked by me in a uniform and said rudely and almost annoyed, "do you have a question". I replied that I was waiting on my bag. She then said these are it and I said so my bag has been lost? Without any empathy AT ALL she again, rudely and now most definitely annoyed said Do you have your bag tag? I said yes and she proceeded to walk away to a corner office. I assumed I was to follow. She took my tag, no communication at all from her, I said what are you doing and she replied I have to file a claim. She then proceeded to tell me that Newark Airport was horrible and never travel through there if I know what's good for me. This was extremely unprofessional. I was simply wanting some guidance from her on what to expect etc. I had to ask her what my next steps were. She handed me a flyer and said if I had any questions to call baggage information listed on the pamphlet. I left. The next day at about 1 p.m. I called the number and the update said my bag had left the airport and was out for delivery. Keep in mind that I had to work the next day after the airline losing my bag and had to purchase shower items etc due to them being in my lost bag. Portland jetport and my home address is less than 40 minutes apart, yet my bag did not arrive at my home until 8:30 p.m. and I'm also not confident it would have ever arrived because I called around 7 p.m. and spoke with someone who called the delivery service to ask their ETA. I paid $25 to check my bag and yet it was lost. What did I pay for?! If I can help it, I will NEVER fly United again and I'll be certain to tell everyone I know about my experience with this airline."
Pros: "Everyone was pleasant and ask are you comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was great"
Cons: "Departure was changed twice until I would miss my connecting flight. I was sent to another airlines with not much help. Stayed in the airport an additional five hours."
Cons: "I booked my flight over 5 weeks ago, and was given an aisle seat. When I checked in online, my seat had been changed to a middle seat. I tried to change my seat online, and was only given the option of 1 other middle seat. I have to have an aisle seat because of arthritis, and I need to walk around during flight. There were long lines at the desk at the gate, and I couldn't stand there to get my seat changed. Now I'm dealing with lots of leg pain as a result. I NEVER would have booked this flight if I'd known I would'nt have an aisle seat. IT IS "BAIT AND SWITCH"!"
Cons: "Deverted to Newark to get to portland"
Pros: "Very polite, upbeat crew"
Cons: "Newark airport a mess!"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled and the later flights to Portland were all full, so I was offered a flight to Boston instead, with no refund for the bus ticket from Boston to Portland, and of course my bag did not arrive with me."
Pros: "Not much to say about an hour flight. Coffee could not be served due to weather conditions, not airlines fault."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy"
Cons: "signed up for a window seat was assigned a middle"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Dinner was served within 1 hr of takeoff and breakfast 1-2 hrs of landing. Nothing served inbetween. There was about 10-11 hrs of nothing. No drinks or snacks served. Very poor service in compairison to other international flights I have taken."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues after waiting for 3 hours. The next flight they put me on was the next day on another airline. They put us up in a shity hotel and the meal vouchers only worked at the airport where everything was closed by then or hotel which had no restaurant. United offered a $50 compensation which is a kick in the teeth compared to the inconvenience I was put trough. If I don't get properly compensated from United for that horrible experience I will never fly them again and tell everyone I know to never fly United."
Pros: "On my first flight from SNA plane and crew excellent. Due t storm in Houston we got on and off plane 3x until tower thought it was a go. Captain was excellent explained everything I am a scared flyer but he was so encouraging and funny he made it a goo experience"
Cons: "Flights back from Fort Meyers planes seemed smaller and no room in seats Entrainment 0 can't fix stars Food 0!didnt eat"
Pros: "The crew -- friendly and informative."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great direct flight, served coffee & snack as soon as reached cruising, offered OJ & water later. Even offered second cup of coffee. Flight arrived at the gate 15 min. early, the baggage was at baggage carrosel fast"
Cons: "We flew united on our way to forida and we had a layover our first flight got delayed so we missed our second flight. Then on our way back they tried doing the same thing. The lady at the counter thank god ran down to delta and got us a flight to atlanta then to st louis. I think united just doesnt want to pay for a hotel room when they are the ones that kept delaying it. It was a nightmare and i dont plan on flying united again."
Cons: "There is extreme turbulence and no one came over the PA system for sure that it was just turbulence. I was afraid"
Pros: "Easy,smooth ride, thank you"
Cons: "Over four hour delay due to "crew unavailability.""
Pros: "Cost Ease of booking"
Cons: "delays (weather based )"
Pros: "The flight was short(ish)."
Cons: "The price of flight not in line with service, comfort, anything. Full flight, small seat, some flight attendants in crabby mood, luggage hassle in Houston, didn't get it first, thought they didn't have it. Had to go to United customer service. Ended up being somekind of "jam". Took forever to get luggage. And it cost me 25 bucks extra. Shameful. Poor experience."
Pros: "Boarding on time and easy Seats super comfy Tv was great"
Cons: "Staff not attentive or friendly Not many food options"
Pros: "Updates were poor as to wether or not I would make my connecting flight. When I asked if there were back up options and was told there were not any. After an hour delay I was called up and given a flight number that could be an option."
Cons: "The delays that I experienced were incredibly long. The major problem with this was the lack of comunication that I received from the airline. I could not figure out how to turn off the tv."
Pros: "Security staff was terrific , the Crew was exceptional . Overall satisfied ..."
Cons: "It was a short flight but still very tight . I couldn't take a longer flight on a 737 . Uncomfortable ."
Pros: "Boarding was well organized on a fully packed flight"
Cons: "They sold an economy class ticket to a 400 pound woman by the window seat of my row and she spilled 50% of the way into the middle seat. The woman assigned the middle switched with a relatively thin member of her own party, but the poor kid was still cheated of his space and pushed against me in the aisle seat. I know it's considered insensitive to complain about the morbidly obese, but c'mon!!! Her inability to control her weight has affected me in a material way by subjecting me and the kid in the middle to 3 1/2 hours of misery. I guess the airline CAN'T call this issue to her attention for fear of discrimination charges, but they might make some kind of compensation (free flight, or at least a food coupon, or a pass to the United Club) to assuage the injured seatmates. Also, the airline was generous with drinks, but served no snack. Nothing? Really? I really don't like United, but, unfortunately, it's the main airline flying my route. I fly them only when there is no other choice."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "No complementary snacks. You had to pay for the direct TV and the price of wifi has been raised"
Pros: "on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "seats too narrow"
Pros: "Row A"
Cons: "My checked bag was left in Chicago. Major inconvenience"
Cons: "I didn't like that they gave me an extra layover causing me to come into Portland six hours later than I was supposed to. I went from Chicago to Newark, when I was only supposed to go from Chicago to Portland."
Pros: "Attendants were competent but casual. Friendly."
Cons: "Boarding should have been back to front. Late both ways because of slow boarding. Being charged for every single thing is not worth the "cheap" price. Advertised prices are just to suck you in then upcharges for everything including seats, carry on, and water, make you feel like a chump because you fell for it. I only fly it because of the direct route but would avoid this line if I can."
Cons: "8 hour layover in airport, 2 hours holdover inside plane cabin on departure flight. On return flight 2 hour hold in cabin on tarmac while other frontier plane waits to take off. They were still cleaning up their mess a week later, claiming issues were due to weather while pilots admitted otherwise and all other airlines continued to fly with no issue. I will avoid this airline in the future, its not worth spending a little less to risk your vacation. Also if you have back problems none of their coach seats recline they are so cheap."
Cons: "Canceled the flight for no reason."
Pros: "I felt deceived by Frontier. I knew paying the low fair I was going to get a bare bones trip. I was fine with paying for my own drink. I cannot believe that the airline is charging $40 bags for a carry on!!!!!! Also I had to pay an additional $27 each so my husband and I could sit together. Shame on you frontier. Of given the choice I will NEVER fly with this airline again. Everyone I tell about my experience has their own negative story to tell about Frontier. I suggest you change your practice before you go out of business. My final cost was double the original price of my original ticket. Just price the ticket as it should be."
Pros: "My Frontiier flight went very well. I arrived 2hours before my domestic flight which insured the wait to checking in baggage did not create any angst. I was seated, waiting for boarding plane 15 min beforehand. It all went well."
Cons: "Nothing. I got what I paid for."
Cons: "Seat backs were uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was polite and heloful."
Cons: "I hate the "hidden" prices. I bought a ticket. Why do I need to pay extra for the seat. And luggage? Don't get me started."
Pros: "The crew was nice and tried to be entertaining during the safety instructions, etc. But did not make up for sardine can cramped seating."
Cons: "The seats are so tight that you are literally wedged into them like a tight shoe. I have mild claustrophobia and as soon as I sat in my seat I began to have a panic attack (first time in my life) the plane wasn't even off the ground and I literally could not move. The seat in front of me was jammed against my knees, my shoulders were wedged against the window and the back of the seat was straight up with no wiggle room whatsoever! I seriously considered clawing my way off the plane before it left the ground because I was in such a panic. On the way home I had to upgrade my seat to the $60 front row seat (thank God they had one left) which gave a slight bit more leg room and I made it home, never to fly on that sardine can again! Come on! I get they want to cram as many people as they can on a plane, but we are not pygmies here! Plus, when I checked my bag in Denver, my sister put her bag on first and it was under weight (42.5 lbs.) and we joked to the lady "Marta" that her bag had lost weight because we were both at 50 on the way there - and she yanked my sister's bag off the scale and threw it on the conveyor BEFORE she would weigh mine, which weighed in at 52 pounds. We asked her to allow us to put a few of my things in my sister's bag and she said NO her bag was at 49 pounds already - which was a lie, we all saw the scale when it read 42.5 lbs.! We tried to reason with her and she just ignored us and yelled "NEXT" and would not allow us to get our boarding passes until I pulled 2 pounds of clothing out of my bag and crammed it into mine and my sister's purse/personal bag. She was a flat-out power hungry witch, for no reason, my sister's bag was easy to open and had plenty of room. I'm so done with them!"
Cons: "To crowded to move. I am 6 1" and 200 lds. That is not to big a deal by todays standards . I won't fly Frontier again because of the way the seats are arranged. First time I sat in a bulk head seat and couldn't get out without climbing over fellow passengers Ray Pope"
Cons: "Flight was suppose to leave 9:40pm which was reported on time up until 9pm then flight was delayed until 12:42 am even though weather was completely clear, the pilots and the plane was there. They wanted to "wait for a fresh crew to fly in" from another location. Had to sit in the airport for 4 hours due to poor scheduling? That's ridiculous."
Pros: "I chose this airline because the flight was the least expensive. The additional fees for baggage, both checked and carry-on, surprised me but the cost was still more than $100.00 less than any other airline. All the airline personnel with whom I interacted were gracious, helpful, and professional. Would definitely fly with Frontier again."
Pros: "I found the flight attendants friendly and helpful. The prices were fair and the seats while a bit cramped were doable consistent with the price."
Cons: "i thought being charged for the first checked bag a bit unfair."
Cons: "Frontier NEEDS TSA Pre-Check!!"
Cons: "The misleading baggage up charges including for carry ons, tiny seats and space to sit, hard and uncomfortable seats-unless you paid $50. Up charge, lousy attitude of flight crew-never saw them smile..we arrived safely and on time which is why I am giving poor rating and not terrible. No matter what the cost Zi will never fly Frontier again!"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seating. They charge for carry-on bags."
Pros: "Nonstop and smooth flying"
Cons: "The fact that you can't check one bag without paying for it."
Pros: "The flight was on-time and arrived early"
Cons: "The seats did not recline and I felt cramped and uncomfortable the entire trip"
Pros: "The attendant who helped check me in was kind. I had an overweight bag and she was polite and pleasant about that and helped to make it the right weight. Her thoroughness was totally appreciated!"
Cons: "Check in line took over an hour and almost caused us and several other passengers to miss our flights. Seats are cramped and uncomfortable. Hidden fees are worse than any other airline. Initial tickets are cheap but eventually cost as much as any other airline, I will remember this in the future and avoid booking with Frontier whenever possible."
Cons: "Seats do not recline. Paying for a Coke and carry ons."
Pros: "the boarding was efficient and easy"
Cons: "charges for seating, charges for luggage carry on, charges for luggage check, charges for food, no "entertainment," uncomfortable seats-didn't recline,"
Pros: "Flights on time, staff very friendly. This is our first time with Frontier and it was great."
Cons: "Seats don't recline at all. But seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Pilot was very funny when making announcements. "Anyone caught smoking in the bathrooms will be duck tape to the side of the plane for the duration of the flight"."
Cons: "Seats were pretty close - not much room. Could not chose as seat online at check- in."
Pros: "Timely schedule, seat assignment Ease of security check Minimum staff exchanges but positive outcomes"
Cons: "Size of seats, tray too small to be useful"
Cons: "delay in boarding, miscommunication between ground and crew left us standing in the jetway for 10 minutes waiting for crew to finish preparations. Not good when you are with your 91 year old mother"
Pros: "Fantastic. Smooth ride all the way to Florida."
Pros: "Seats are not comfortable. Frontier offered tvs and no longer does. The carry on charge is just awful. Frontier is one of the only airlines that don't honor pre-tsa"
Pros: "For the price it's all good! Food I would have rated " N/A". Worse thing is comfort; seats are not comfortable and quarters are tight. But I will continue to fly Frontier b/c of savings."
Pros: "Pilot was a cowboy, quick taxi and fast flight, arrived at gate 45 minutes early. On a late flight, the early arrival was a welcomed outcome."
Cons: "I checked a hard case fishing rod tube that contained a brand new fishing rod. The case can be opened from the top and side and both can be locked. The side was the only thing locked and top opening had a simple clip on it so anyone could to easily open it up and inspect the inside. Someone cut the side lock off, took the case apart obviously looking for something and then jammed everything back together securing the cut off lock with a zip tie. After I got home late that night I noticed my lock was cut off and rod broken in 2 pieces. Very disappointed, hopefully someone at Frontier reimburses me for the damage."
Pros: "I had a good experience! I will use Frontier again in the near future as the flight experience was indeed a good one, expect for changing gates 3 times before we finally got on the plane. Could have been worse, at least the gates were close together."
Cons: "A few things that I was unhappy about......, When I went to go print my ticket for my flight, I "then" found out I would be charged for a carry on bag. I was not aware of this charge! So having to pay an extra $40.00 did not make me a happy customer! You need to let people know of such charges. Note: Also let customers know that when they print their ticket they will have choices not only on carry on bags but also seating on the plane. I took the seat given to me as I was not paying extra for the seat too! Also, I had never been charged for a soda or snack before on any other flights I have been on, So I just drank water! Good to know it was free! :)"
Pros: "Very competitive pricing, good departure times, departures were on time and friendly crew."
Cons: "Changes need make to online check in. I selected our seats 24 Hrs in advance and the ticket desk gave our seats to another couple. Flight was not full so the issues was resolved. embarrassing to staff and customers. (both partes)"
Pros: "on Time."
Cons: "Check in by computer 24 hours in advance did not work. The guy in front of me at the check in line had the same problem."
Pros: "Everything has a price - including water and carry ons; disappointing"
Pros: "everyone did a great job - especially one of the gals at the check in counter and boarding area - witnessed her handle several frustrated travelers with courteous professional ease. (did not catch her name, but overheard she was from el Salvador) - thanks Frontier, you Rock"
Pros: "Flight was for my son. Tried to checkin and was not allowed to, since it just changed to the 45 min mark before departure. Ticket was auto cancelled. Went to southwest and booked a ticket on their direct flight which was to leave 10 min later than the Frontier flight. It actually left 8 min early, while the Frontier flight was still boarding."
Cons: "No obvious warning that Frontier requires checkin 45 min before departure or they auto cancel the ticket. Received an email from kayak 3 hours before departure, no warning there. Did not notice any warning when buying the ticket. Frontier is at the bottom of my list, for choice of carriers."
Pros: "We got to St. Louis early"
Pros: "The crew treats you better than crews on more expensive airlines, and they have a great sense of humor. You can tell that positivity and how they interact with passengers is a priority in the hiring and training process. A lot of people have complained about having to pay extra for carry-ons and other luggage, but Frontier is REALLY clear about their policy for baggage when you book, so these people shouldn't have been shocked. It is a great deal for people who only travel with one small bag, and I'm glad that there is an airline that offers such cheap flights for light travelers. If you need to take a lot of luggage, you can add the cost as you are booking and then decide if it's the best deal before you finalize payment. Overall, it was a very good experience. You aren't going to get a ton of extras for free on this airline, but if getting to point B from point A with a nice flight crew is all that matters to you, Frontier is a great deal."
Pros: "Liked the meal and next flight coupons."
Pros: "the price was awesome"
Cons: "seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flight attendant was funny which made me feel comfortable. The flight was faster than expected which was a plus."
Cons: "My bag got jammed in the baggage claim and I had to wait 30 minutes for the problem to be resolved."
Cons: "the web site had issues and I could not pay for my carry on, called airline, they won't help"
Pros: "Very appreciative of the attentive crew and captain keeping us updated on our very bumpy (and sometimes worrisome) flight."
Cons: "Delayed, tons of turbulence (nobody's fault but ugh), issue with the ramp that had is sitting on the plane in Philly and then our luggage took forever. Honesty it was nothing terrible, just a series of crappy moments on a late at night flight with two kids after a long weekend was just blah."
Cons: "Their pricing is very deceptive. No seat that doesn't cost extra money (minimum was $ 16) and baggage fee is outrageous. A $ 250 ticket when purchased turned into a $ 350 flight. Also they do not participate in TSA pre-check program so had to go through full security. Should be advised of this in advance, and all the extra fees. I could have flown on American for less and had pre-check. Will know next time."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seats I have ever had from any airline. Flight staff was not friendly."
Pros: "THE PRICE BEFORE ALL THE EXTRA CHARGES!!!"
Cons: "could not print out tickets night before kiosk at airport morning of flight not working stood in line long time was not informed of delay until gate flight delayed 2 hours so crew could have break.(GET THAT PART) BUT should have brought in new crew seats were horrible. really uncomfortable and no recline. pathetic tray table Really??? had to pay for seat without knowing(would like our $24 back) $35 carry on charge. NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE HARD PRESSED TO FLY FRONTIER AGAIN USED TO BE FAVORITE CARRIER"
Cons: "Computer fraud in booking on line All company personnel caliber in performance low class Extreme cheap AC seating configuration Very poor communication skills from cockpit and cabin crew"
Pros: "The PEOPLE/staff are great from counter baggage check-in to gate and stewards. I forgot to get the name of the stewardess who was so much fun and entertaining on the flight. I noticed her energy at the gate, and then when she was on the flight, she joked and maintained a light and happy attitude! How refreshing! Unfortunate the aging fleet and overworked employees can't be better taken care of."
Cons: "I did read all the disclosures, so I was aware of other fees to add expense to my ticket which just comes across as ' not straight-forward'. So many financial penalties for not choosing the right/ best way to take your clothes with you when you travel!??? The website check-in is too messy, and misleading, also. I had to call to clarify the information on seat assignment which is a waste of everyone's time! We were delayed for an hour both at the gate and on the plane. Paying for orange juice on a plane is ridiculous! Missed my bus to Colorado Springs and had to wait another hour and a half for the next one."
Pros: "I gave two stars. One for the nice group of flight attendants and one for surprisingly not losing our bags"
Cons: "Being delayed over an hour with minimal explanation and zero apology is unacceptable. We picked that flight because it was the earliest back to Denver and were both subsequently late to meetings. The initial 25 minutes we understood, but adding an additional 30 while we were in the air and couldn't contact our respective bosses made one hell of a Friday for both of us. The seats (which we had to pay for) were glorified plastic chairs. Did not recline, had a tiny tray table, had zero pillow, and were super uncomfortable. I'm greatly confused as to why we pay a fare that doesn't include a seat, as there were literally zero free seats to choose from, and they were all just as uncomfortable. What exactly does the fare cover? Because carry on bags, beverages, and seats weren't included. The flight was approximately 4 hours long. Nearly half of that was tortuous as a child several rows ahead was having a full blown fit complete with yelling at the top of their lungs, hitting seats, etc. This was not your normal upset child on a plane, he was extremely misbehaving and there was no effort from the flight crew to ask the parents to calm him or to offer any help. It made the entire flight that much worse to watch the entire group of passengers appalled at this child's behavior and not so much as a free juice for him or even a hello from the crew to distract him. Both of us have been flying since we were toddlers and understand a crying child. This was so much more than that. We regret that frontier is often our only option for getting home to CO without purposefully booking an additional flight to another hub. Every time we have to fly Frontier we get our hopes up that things have improved and are regularly disappointed. Your planes rarely leave on time, and when they do the passenger experience is still sub par. Hoping we can get another major airline to put more flights out of Denver or Colorado Springs solely so we don't have to rely on Frontier, the unreliable carrier."
Cons: "The fee for a carry-on bag if you had a purse as well. The fee for a soda. I had to buy a seat? Never again the flight attendants were burnt out and ill tempered. No you won't be seeing me again."
Cons: "Paid for a seat upgrade in the front row hoping to have more room on a long flight, only to be sandwiched between 2 very large people that should have paid for two seats. I have nothing against anyone who is larger, but when you are spilling over into my seat, I have a problem with that especially paying for an upgrade on a longer flight."
