Pros: "The aircraft was new and most flight crew were nice."

Cons: "When I checked in online, I received boarding passes for the first two legs of the trip, but was told to see a gate agent in Amsterdam for the boarding pass for that flight. It turns out that there was a problem, attributed by one of the KLM staff that I talked with to "a communication problem between Delta and KLM." As a result, I was finally given a stand-by boarding pass. Since the flight was full, I was denied boarding. After hours of trying to figure this out, the KLM staff put me on a flight for the next day and organized a stay at an airport hotel. The KLM staff were very nice, but it seemed to take a very long time to figure this out. They also failed to note that the denial of boarding in the records, which caused a problem in my return flight. The upshot: I missed a follow-on flight to Budapest and had to pay a huge rebooking fee for that missed flight. I also missed a day of my vacation."
Pros: "Flight attendant was excellent and pilots did a great job with weather"
Cons: "Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes.

Cons: "Seats had no leg room."

Cons: "Sat on the plane at the gate for close to an hour. Very warm It was quite a while before they told us that paperwork had been done wrong. More waiting. Plane was late by 30 minutes arriving"
Cons: "Comfort and food."
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"

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"
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: "On time"
Cons: "Food horrible especially for first class and entertainment did not work"
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"

Pros: "Best airline ever"
Pros: "I liked sitting next to my friends."
Cons: "Lack of leg room"

Pros: "The seats had head rests"
Cons: "Rude staff, flight was delayed. No food or drink service."
Cons: "Tight space"
Pros: "I liked that I landed in time to get to my next flight."

Pros: "That I slept all the way"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Cons: "Ride was bumpy"
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"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour"
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy."
Cons: "Flight attendant never smiled once. She got short with the lady in front of me. Just looked like she doesn't like her job. You could tell she didn't want to be there. I never did hear the Captain speak. The crew just seemed unfriendly to me. Service at the airport was great!"
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."
Cons: "Seats are ridicoualy close together and the aisle's width to short. Every time someone moves, they are bumping into people seated in aisle seats. Boarding and replanting is a nightmare. Asked to help clean up plane before leaving. For all this, I paid $650."
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost every half hour from 4 pm til 9:30. We finally boarded the plane to be ushered off without anyone letting us know anything. Flight was cancelled and we flew the following day"
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: "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: "There was room for my carry on on both flights."
Cons: "The bathroom on the plane smelled of urine. The only snack offered on both flights was a stroopwaffle. Seat didn't relive at all."
Cons: "The seats are Uncomfortable. The food no longer exists. They give you two ounces of drink"
Cons: "Lots of turbulence. Horrible landing...very abrupt."
Cons: "I was rerouted, very efficiently, to another airline by United due to late planes. I had paid my baggage fee on united and then had to pay it on the other airline. I have been on the phone 3 times for half an hour each time to get my refund from United. I STILL do not have it!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "workers were caring and professional"
Cons: "some people take on extra large luggage and too much stuff"
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"
Cons: "Delayed in Fort Myers due to maintenance. Just missed flight in Chicago. United wouldn't hold flight, spent night. No offer to compensate. Writing letter. Poor customer service as well. Unpleasant experience."
Pros: "Seats are far tooo tight for long flights.. So I booked Virgin America on the way back."
Cons: "Entertainment not working well. It was too difficult to get a movie, and I am using the same laptop/ equipment that I had on the last united flight. It made a long flight even longer."
Pros: "TSA precheck, Group 2 boarding, more room in seat"
Cons: "The usual things that you can't do much about: small package of pretzels, bathrooms, crowded. I wasn't unhappy, it just goes with flying."
Pros: "It was coach so you get what you pay for"
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: "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: "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."
Pros: "I was late to get to airport-- the airport is small-- I hauled and managed to get checked in and got to gate 15 minutes before take off. There was no one at the gate door. I went to another gate and she tried to call the attendant at the door. She didn't respond because her phone was at the desk. I was frustrated I didn't get on while I could see she was talking with people at the gate and in the airplane-- but I should have been there earlier. That said-- she came out and was incredibly helpful-- she managed to get me on a flight only an hour after that one and I didn't miss my connecting flight."
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: "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: "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."
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."
Cons: "Despite that the plane had clearly not arrived, the desk people indicated we would still be on time, and we were told that we would make up the time in the air. After waiting for 1.5 hours on the tarmac, we were 1.5 hours late to our destination. The seat were very small and not very comfortable and did not recline. We were told when checking-in online that we would have to pay $16 - $50 to guarantee that we would sit next to each other (only 2 people). Also there was a steep charge for checking and even carry-on luggage! The airline also lost one of our bags on the return trip. Pretty terrible experience overall."
Pros: "Feeling like cattle on a flight delayed 2 hours, in uncomfortable seats and waiting nearly an hour (at 1:00 AM) for luggage to arrive at the carousel. this all translates to getting home at 2:00 AM with a back ache."
Cons: "no TSA pecheck"
Cons: "rough landing"
Pros: "A very smooth landing."
Cons: "I waited in line to check in for 45 minutes or so. No-one was at the desk. A customer ended up finding a security guard and asking them to find a Frontier employee. They paged for one over the loud speaker. How embarrassing. A woman started checking customers in, with the attitude of the century. She was angry, rude, and just plain nasty. This should not be the face of Frontier. When friends and family ask, "How was your flight?" All I can picture is that woman and her pinched tight frown of a mouth, angry grimace of a face and condescending hateful tone. Good day."
Pros: "Friendly staff, efficient boarding"
Cons: "Paying for a carry on bag (not making this more clear when booking), uncomfortable seats, cheap/small tray tables, no complimentary beverage service."
Cons: "Paying for every item. Just include it in flight. Delayed luggage on return"
Pros: "Non-stop flight, understanding service personnel"
Cons: "They don't allow carry on bags that are of normal size for free=>90$ extra hidden fee ; the personnel is overworked and checkin lines can be 100+yards long, we barely made to the boarding despite arriving more than 2 h in advance;the baggage arrived very late. The seats are nonreclining; you pay for almost all common drinks. Cannot comment on the crash risk factors, but given all this the odds are probably stacked more against you with this carrier..."
Pros: "The non stop flight is the only way to go. That part was nice."
Cons: "Trying to prepay my baggage was a nightmare. I never, repeat I never had so much trouble navigating a flight option in my life. I spent an hour before leaving Cincinnati and before leaving Ft. Myers. I was forced to pay $40 for one bag each. Online baggage fee was $25. I would like to be reimbursed the difference please. If this doesn't do it, I will write to the airline. Sincerely, Peter j Vlasic"
Pros: "Frontier Airlines were a pleasant change from Spirit Airlines if only from the point that there were no delays."
Cons: "I can't think of a single thing other than the seat prices and the luggage charges are more than Spirit, however, the weight maximums are more than Spirit allow and that was pleasing."
Pros: "Good price, on time. Crew seemed fine."
Cons: "The flight was a GREAT price, so the non-recline seats were expected. What was not expected was Frontier losing my luggage for two days. And since it was a golf trip, I had to rent/borrow clubs for two of the 3 rounds I played. Not ideal. Especially when I had to pay $80 extra to bring them! Having to pay for water is inexcusable!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed fromv9:40 to finally taking off at 12:50 no reason given. A voucher was promised but never received!"
Cons: "I could not figure out how to pay for my bag in advance. When I asked the agent at check-in they were not helpful. The check in counter does not open until two hours before the flight long lines at check in and security barely made it to gate."
Pros: "Seats very small and uncomfortable. Can't recline"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and comforting to the customers"
Cons: "Just need WI-FI"
Pros: "The flight crew was fantastic & I finally made it home"
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times but passengers were not notified. The gate marquee wasn't even updated. Once on the plane most of the reading light in my area (row 23) didn't work."
Pros: "The price was great. The flight was excellent. Crew was very nice and professional."
Cons: "The seats were hard and uncomfortable. I'm glad I was on a short flight."
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: "Timliness of Takeoff and landing"
Cons: "Too many babies on the plane. Not enough leg room Landed early. No available gate."
Pros: "Friendly crew, back to Denver ahead of time. Always a plus"
Cons: "New seats are uncomfortable. A free beverage coffee or a soda should be offered. It's not that expensive, especially when you have to pay for baggage."
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: "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 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."
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: "Crew did a great job keeping everyone happy with the weather delays."
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."
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: "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."
