Cons: "Poor selection was offered. I know they were on a short flight so it really didn’t matter and it’s not their fault that they can only serve what they are given. The crew was exceptional in every other way."
Pros: "I know the pilot did the best he could but the landing in Newark was the worst I ever went through. About 20 people vomited, including myself. The crew was very thoughtful and picked up the bags before landing."
Cons: "Flight delayed over an hour and a half. We had to stay on plane the whole time . What concerns me is we received an email that stated we were already delayed prior to leaving for airport. A ten min delay. That tells me they knew already there was an issue and chose not to deal with it until the next flight. Not a good way to address the mechanical issue. We pulled away from the boarding area and sat on runway while they tried to fix the minor issue."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Hot with little air"
Pros: "Leg room and free working wifi"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Cons: "Tiny TVs. Needed reading glasses to see programming."
Pros: "It took off and landed on time. Baggage came in a timely fashion."

Pros: "service, food and cleanness"

Pros: "Great flight great experience"
Cons: "Long lines at TSA checkpoint."
Pros: "Excellent customer service."
Cons: "Issues with on board entertainment - credit was provided."
Pros: "Great process, easy boarding and smooth flight."
Pros: "So I couldn’t get a full boarding pass.. and had to go to the American Airlines to get my continue ticket.. that is not the right way to do it .. other then that every thing was good."
Cons: "Read the above"
Pros: "Smooth ride. Great snacks."
Cons: "Everything was excellent."
Pros: "Everything about Jet Blue was excellent. Especially impressive was their baggage handling. In Ft. Meyers, my bag was on the baggage claim before I got there. In Newark, where baggage claim in usually lousy, my bag was there in less than 5 minutes. I'm definitely going to fly Jet Blue more. Lew"
Pros: "Trip was on time, smooth and watched part of the football game."
Cons: "Too many people with big bags on the overhead compartments. Took a long time to disembark."
Pros: "We were in row 9. We had the row to ourselves so lots of leg room and a middle area to stretch out and into. A rare experience these days. And on time. Great trip."
Pros: "Nice leg room in row #2"
Cons: "Entertainment system in middle seat did not work"
Pros: "Cheap flight, plenty of room, free snacks, on time.. what more could you ask for?"
Cons: "It was all great!"
Pros: "My flight from fort Myers to New York was amazing. Flight was ahead of time and crew was polite."
Cons: "When I received my luggage it was so damaged that someone used clear tape to keep it closed. There was no note inside the luggage to state if it was tsa who went through the bag so I went to customer service to inquire about it. The representative from New York airport stated that I over packed my bag that's why it was damaged. I can assure you that my bag was under weight and there was no problem when i last closed it. So to be clear both zippers on my luggage was completely destroyed and taped up like a ragged cloth. I was embarrassed to walk around with my bag and the only recompensation I received was a $40 credit to my next flight."
Pros: "Lisa was great . Thank you for making my trip so pleasant"
Pros: "the air crew was excellent for a great flight! thank you pilot and copilot! :)"
Cons: "waiting in the airplane for a long time for the "union" ground crew to load the bags into the aircraft. They were on hold because of lightning in the area but we saw only 1 strike far away. that's a "union" for you! :/"
Pros: "You can pretty much count on having a great crew with JetBlue This flight's embodied patience: patience with the lady who wanted to bring a smartecarte loaded with diaper bags, blankies, handbags and stuffed animals onto the plane; patience with the baby in the first row who cried throughout the entire boarding process and patience witht; patience with the lady in the first row (who didn't have a seat in front of her to put her handbag containing a small service dog underneath) and two, I guess, wanted to keep the dog on her lap during take off. It was a plane full of first time flyers, with resulting chaos. And they kept their cool throughout."
Cons: "It was a plane full of first-time flyers, with resulting chaos. it's not Jetblue's fault that people are chaotic and babies cry loudly when they are in unfamiliar surroundings. But it sure makes it trying for people who are sharing the same cramped space. You don't realize that there's an art to being a good passenger until you see passengers who are unskilled at being passengers. I know this sounds very unkind, but it was a late flight."
Cons: "Seems to be every flight we take over the past year has had long delays"
Cons: "Bad attitudes, long lines, and no options. TERRIBLE experience and my vacation had to be canceled."
Pros: "The flights are good, plenty of room and great service."
Cons: "The 3 hour delay for "weather" was a bit much after sitting all day in the airport. Since no storms were in the NJ area until after 2am. The delay I'm guessing was due to Gov Christies ridiculous FAA changes. I cannot hold JetBlue responsible for this but anyone flying into the north east should count on a delay or canceled flights."
Cons: "The plane was dirty my entertainment system did not work I know Stewart didn't seem like she cared and the plane was 5 hours late due to weather I get that with the day before my flight was cancelled I always fly JetBlue but now I'm thinking"
Pros: "JetBlue has leg room appropriate for adult humans. AA and UA imprison you in spaces so small you suffer actual damage to your body."
Pros: "Boarded and took off on time ...landed early comfy seat and great shows"
Cons: "I had to change my flight the first person I talked to quoted me 425 per person to do so called back and provided the quotes price online and deal was done"
Cons: "No beverages were available to even purchase!"
Cons: "The plane was completely packed despite the COVID pandemic. A stranger sat next to me on the plane (distance of about 6 inches, not 6 feet). What social distancing? And yet they conveniently said no food/drink beverage for safety reasons. Good way for the airline to save a few bucks. Other airlines (like JetBlue) block out adjacent sears and give snacks in individual bags but this... I flew several times since the pandemic began and this was by far the worst. What a joke of an airline. Never flying them again"
Pros: "We appreciated being upgraded to first class using my segments."
Cons: "For a 2 1/2 hour flight in first class all we got was our pick from a basket of chips. Horrible!"
Pros: "Great stewardesses"
Cons: "We waited in the shuttle bus for one hour while they determined the plane needed maintenance and found another plane to warm up"
Pros: "I liked how convenient and smooth everything was, from the price of my plane ticket to the pick-up and drop-off of my rental vehicle. Also, the text notifications I received upon landing that informed me how much time I had I had between flights & where to go!"
Cons: "Honestly, there's nothing that comes to mind for me as far as improvements go."
Cons: "just the food options were not that good. all other things were ok."
Pros: "Very nice crew, smooth boarding, made up time from late arriving aircraft. Surprised and impressed by how good AA was relative to how I remember it."
Cons: "Wifi was unreliable."
Pros: "Arriving in SFO for Christmas"
Cons: "Gate changed 4 times...late boarding and even later departure 2 hours. Put us on a small plane and then do maintenance. not cool."

Pros: "Pleased to get luggage with tight connections. Exceptional crew RSW- Charlotte. Good legroom in overseas flight . Please do on all flights"
Cons: "Tv screen didn’t work on trans Atlantic flight"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Nothing I didnt like"
Pros: "They rerouted me so I at least salvaged some of my trip."
Cons: "They rerouted me for no reason making me miss my reunion."
Pros: "Comfortable wifi enabled jet."
Cons: "Flight delayed over 2hrs. Inbound aircraft mechanical trouble. No info provided by airline. Maddening 10 minute rolling delay. "Your flight is boarding in xx(10) minutes and no airplane is at gate. It's just ridiculous."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to weather"
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."

Cons: "Lack of gluten free snack Cramped knee room"
Pros: "Nothing to complain about!"

Cons: "The fact that the flight was cancelled and I was unable to reschedule from this airport, resulting in an increased price of almost $1,000."
Cons: "Staff at N Carolina were rude and had there heads buried in there computers! Acted like they were doing you a favor to answer a question!"
Cons: "No charges for cellphones on first class! (Plane looks pretty new as well)"
Cons: "gate assignment took too long"
Pros: "The direct flight, less time"

Cons: "No negative actions or interactions."
Pros: "Crew was great, took off and landed early."
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."
Pros: "I. Did not take this flight had a family emergency had to get home right away"
Pros: "Boarded on time and was easy"

Cons: "Didn't ask for any food so can't rate that or entertainment"
Cons: "I paid $75.00 to take an earlier flight and Americans crew error nullified this. I feel ripped off."

Pros: "A great ride."
Pros: "everything was polite with a lot of courtesy service was given excellence I would recommend to everyone at all times everything was clean too"
Pros: "Best airline ever"
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: "Rude staff, flight was delayed. No food or drink service."
Cons: "Tight space"
Cons: "American Airlines is the worst airlines of ever flown time and time again they let me down I didn't get me there on time and I spent the night in an airplane they wouldn't touch down in Jackson and aborted the mission house lights on the runway was not working when any other airline already landed that night so we spent the night going back to North Carolina and I didn't even take care of hotels or get us a cabin or anything to get to the hotel so that sums it up I'm not show"
Cons: "Plane was cold! But better than hot!"
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: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "No delays on take off ,"
Cons: "Seating no leg room if your a tall person"
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!"
Pros: "On time, courteous & caring flight attendant & desk staff. Unable to understand pilot or first officer's PA announcements...language & microphone issues. Airplane is severely cramped so flight was uncomfortable."
Cons: "See above"
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: "My flight was delayed 30+ minutes going out from Ohare. But overall the flight was good & service was fine. Thanks!"
Cons: "The delay concerned me, years ago we flew to Mudkegon and our flight was delayed and we ended up stranded in Detroit overnight. I was very happy to see our plane fly into terminal."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over two hours"
Pros: "The flight was to depart at 8:15 but due to delay only leaving at 3;30. Dissapointed as it took two agents to process a replacement flight (first agent offered a connection for a 1.5h flight only)."
Cons: "More attentive staff willing to help and at the very least, be emphatic."
Cons: "The crew was unprofessional and Unprepared"
Cons: "They would not honor their refund policy with proper documentation submitted four weeks in advance."
Pros: "The crew is really nice. They are considerate and helpful as if they know you will be bored through out the flight."
Cons: "You get no food. One advise for the company, do not serve alcohol on 6 AM flights. Just serve some eggs or bread. Try to compete with international airlines like emirates and not greyhound buses. The entertainment system requires you to download the app on your phone and you need to buy the internet."
Pros: "Uneventful is good now a days when flying. Plane was comfortable an very smooth flying!!"
Cons: "Our flight attendant was all business an no smiles. I asked for ice an never received."
Pros: "Lost flight other one took longer not happy"
Cons: "Lost flight other took too long"
Pros: "Same as before"
Pros: "Had the ability to connect in my phone to the app for free in-flight entertainment. Other United flights will have the TV in the headrest but charge you for wifi or to watch TV or movies."
Cons: "Our flight got delayed 3 hours (which I understand happens) but they boarded group 1 individually, group 2 individually, then combined groups 3, 4, and 5 in the same line. I was in group 3 but was stuck behind people in other groups. Also, they ran out of room in the overhead storage which is frustrating when you're flight is already pushed out to a later time - the last thing I want to do at 1:00 am is wait for my luggage because it had to be checked. People brought on carry-on suitcases along with 1 personal item which were huge tote bags or backpacks. There's got to be a way to monitor overhead storage for items like that - if it's the size of a carry-on, they should need to check their suitcase. The snack was lack-luster. I went on a 5-hour flight to Seattle a few months ago and one cookie with no protein is hardly filling for that long of a flight."
Cons: "The amount of luggage people bring as carry ons."
Cons: "Rude staff,"
Pros: "did not crash"
Cons: "It appeared that flight was not ever scheduled to go to Providence, The plane was too large to land in Providence. United probably sold too many tickets. Arrived at 130 a.m. next day -- not 9 p.m. lie I was supposed to arrive. United offered a $100 e-ticket gift. I do not fly very often. Could use $100 cash or free flight to Providence -- not Boston"
Pros: "Very nice and smooth flight, lasted even less time"
Cons: "The lady at check in couldn't give me and my boyfriend seats next to each other, but thankfully there was a very nice lady who agreed to exchange seats in the plane."
Cons: "Did not like the commuter ride from newark to syracuse. Probably would not use united again because of that. Had to get on a bus that took us across the street to board this little, very noisy plane. Even the flight to newark was uncomfortable. Seats are too close no legroom and my back was killing me due to uncomfortable small seats. United is not for me. Sorry."
Pros: "We received a free video service for the flight"
Cons: "First of all the flight was booked for a plane which was too large to land in Providence. So either way we were going to have a longer day and extra leg.....which I only paid for ONE plane change. After running to the gate because my first flight was late taking off, this flight was delayed due to engine issues. The agent had us standing in line for 1 1/2 hours while she tried to figure out what was going on. So instead of taking off at 5:40 pm, we took off at 9 pm and still had to catch a bus from Boston to Providence...HORRIBLE Flight = Long Day/Night"
Pros: "Getting home."
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: "Long layover"
Cons: "The gate changed twice. We were directed to a bus to take us to our flight to only be made to get back off the bus because we didn't have a crew. No one would tell us anything. Got back into the airport and then 30 minutes later got put back on the bus. The plane was disgusting, smelled like urine. The air conditioning didn't work. Terrible."
Pros: "Everyone was pleasant and ask are you comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was great"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "That all the passengers were allowed a carry on bag, the flt was full and they made a lot of people check their bags, not fare!!! This airlines breaks their people into 5 different classes, I'm not sure what or how they do it, I was a 5, I boarded last, people climbing over each other, use to be back to front, after 1st class, of course. It was ridiculous."
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"!"
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"
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: "Very friendly crew, everything went smoothly and efficiently. On a personal level I felt a lot more comfortable on these smaller planes, just because there were less people I suppose."
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: "Plane was new Airbus A320"
Cons: "Feel like i was nickel and dimed for a seat and luggage. Do 1 low price for the airfare, baggage including seat assignment. Food / drinks can be an add on"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Seats don’t recline. Lots of chop!"
Pros: "Basic, simple. No frills but economical"
Cons: "Seats did not recline.. So uncomfortable"
Pros: "This crew was a lot friendlier the the crew that I flew out with. They had smiles on their faces and no attitudes unlike the first crew from BUFFALO to Fort Myers. This crew makes me want to fly again with this airline. The other crew had me questioning my decision to fly with this company at all."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "I have flown Frontier on and off for the past five years. Today really deterred me from wanting to fly them ever again. Two separate kiosk issues with my friend's ticket, unable to use the website either, waited in line for seat assignment and finally, off to the races, but we were too late after all of these setbacks. Missed flight. Disappointed."
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."
Cons: "Pay for drinks, pay for food, pay for bags, pay to pick seat, etc etc"
Cons: "After paying for my luggage & to choose my seat (why would it cost ME money to do someone else's job!?!?), the cost of my flight would have been the same on pretty much any other airline. The seats are hard as a rock, they don't recline and the tray tables barely hold a cellphone. On top of the ridiculous extra fees and discomfort, there is a charge for any and all snacks/beverages. I can't believe that after all of those fees Frontier can't even offer water? I will be avoiding flying Frontier from now on."
Cons: "Excessive baggage fees"
Pros: "clean plane, well piloted, courteous crew. early arrival both directions."
Cons: "credit card pitches. they're getting a little annoying."
Pros: "Attendants were pleasant and arrivals and departures were excellent....other than that I would not recommend this airline."
Pros: "Timliness of Takeoff and landing"
Cons: "Too many babies on the plane. Not enough leg room Landed early. No available gate."
Pros: "They were on time."
Cons: "The whole pay for everything additions, no entertainment, and no reclining seats."
Pros: "I traveled home safely!"
Cons: "No water service"
Cons: "Plane was 3 hours late. They knew this in advance but did not bother to send out any sort of notification so we could wait at home instead of the airport. The new seats are very uncomfortable and don't incline unless you pay extra for the stretch seats. They are now charging forty dollars for each carry-on bag and charging for beverages. Altogether, I'm miserable experience and I plan on avoiding frontier in the future if it all possible."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Waiting in the airport from 630 pm to 230am for our plane to arrive & take off! Second time I've had a 4+ hr delay with Frontier."
Cons: "PASSENGER RUDENESS"
Pros: "The friendly service!! It's always nerve-wracking for me & they were friendly & helpful from the check-in process to saying good-bye! The rates are wonderful too! A little disappointing that the rates went up for checked bags :/"
Cons: "Rates went up for checked bags since my flight JUST LAST WEEK! "/"
Pros: "Overall excellent experience. Nonstop flights from Ohio to Fort Myers Florida were on time and arrived at destination early! The Frontier app was great to get early check in and pick seats. The line I was able to skip at airport check in was horrible and I felt like a pro being able to go straight to security!"
Pros: "Left right on time & arrived early."
Cons: "Paying $45.00 for a carry-on ... "stinks". Fold down table is too small. Unable to adjust seat made for an uncomfortable 2 1/2 hours. I'm flying back to Fort Myers on Tuesday (2-16-16). Can you give me a "free" carry-on? Don (248) 798-6660"
Pros: "This was the only airline with a direct, non-stop flight. And we landed early!"
Cons: "Paying for all the add-ons: luggage, seat."
Cons: "Baggage did not arrive due to weight limitations which in my opinion is due to too many seats crammed onto the plane. My 89/91 year old parents first class seats were possibly a few inches wider and still 3 seats across...that's a rip off. No TSA - pre check. Limited staff for check in with long lines. Also, only 2 check-in kiosks with only one working and no assistant to help speed along the process. I witnessed one man who spent approximately ten minutes trying to print his boarding pass. Cheap tickets which result in getting what you pay for."
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."
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."
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"
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: "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: "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: "Flight was 3 hours late. No comps."
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."
Pros: "I had ankle surgery a few months ago and am still wearing a cast. Since I was in a wheelchair and the flight was not full, I was upgraded to a better seat. I certainly appreciated that!"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "As I said, the personnel and overall operation was good. Friendly people."
Cons: "Flight was running late when gate agent announced a 30-45 minute delay for a security sweep because aircraft was left untended. Saw the first office and one flight attendant go down jetway while passengers were still deplaning. That should have solved that problem. What happened?"
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."
