I had already checked in online but becAuse of a glitch couldnt access it. I went to customer service desk and Asked for a hard copy boarding pass but Alaska Would not help me , it was Too late. So I waited for 38 minutes, watching an empty TSA line and then listened as my flight pre-boarded, , boarded and took Off without me.

Pros: "We had a delay in landing. I was feeling sick to my stomach and after landing i used the restroom. When I got back to my seat to retrieve my things a man from the cleaning crew had one of the bags I had under my seat. I had $500 cash in my wallet that my husband gave me to deposit in the bank upon my arrival. When i asked the guy why he had my bag he said he was security and he thought I left. I felt that was odd because people were still exiting the plane. I grabbed my things and left. I didn't realize my money was taken until i got my rental car. That was the only time my bag was left unattended. I have never experienced this before and was so disappointed in my ingnorance. Since it was cash, my colleagues told me I would most likely be wasting my time."
Pros: "Just to clarify... I had a very short flight where entertainment and food were not an option. Overall, my first experience on Alaskan was great."
Pros: "The captain and crew were friendly"
Pros: "The crew in Fresno actually moved me to an earlier flight that did not route through San Diego, but rather Seattle. They were super helpful and had excellent customer service. They actually checked me in before I arrived because the timing was very tight for me to check in on time. I had a great experience with the service in Fresno."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Thw services was great"
Pros: "It was a short, and the amount of people was small."
Pros: "Flight was earlier than scheduled. Crew was good."

Cons: "Nothing--everything was great--perhaps the best service I've ever received."
Cons: "For the longer leg of my trip, there was no entertainment. No screens at all! No food besides some dry pretzels on a 5 hour flight and the crew was borderline surly. They were running into people with the drink cart, bumping any edge of arm or leg that was in the aisle, not smiling, not pleasant at all."
Pros: "The pilot, crew, etc. was all good. Boarding was great, as was deplaning. There was a lot of communication."
Cons: "I'm a tall woman and I was never more cramped. I think in a long flight such as this 2.5+ hours, they should not be using American Eagle jets. They are so tiny and my neighbor and I were practically on each other's laps."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, i had a good seat."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, Meal was delicious, crew was friendly"
Pros: "Flight got in early. Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Bags could have been brought onto the plane instead of being checked in. There was space in the overhead bins. The space wasn’t utilized efficiently. It would be nice if there were a few choices for the snacks."
Cons: "On time departure would have been nice. Delayed about an hour."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The crew, comfort, flight itself"
Pros: "Most was pretty standard. We did arrive 30 minutes early, which was nice."
Cons: "My bag was checked at the gate, and I was told I could pick it up in Sint Maarten, my final destination. I arrived in Sint Maarten to learn that AA had left my luggage at Charlotte Airport, despite having landed 30 minutes early."
Pros: "Boarding was average. Cabin crew was very nice and attentive when needed. Flight was on-time. Luggage arrived quickly and unharmed."
Cons: "When will airlines end cramming in as many sardines/passengers in the plane? The seating for me (6"1") was too close to the seat in front. Luckily, the passenger in front of me did not recline."
Pros: "Was not long enough"
Pros: "Pleasant flight crew!!"
Pros: "Crew was cordial. Pilot did treat during some rough turbulence."
Cons: "Late boarding, narrow seats"
Pros: "One of the ladies working was very unhappy with life. The other lady was kind and delightful."
Cons: "The air vents did work. So very hot on board. Timing of boarding and landing was great. Some turbulance during flight. Here's the kicker my first fight was delayed and my luggage was stuck in Dallas! My luggage did appear at my house in the middle of the night. Is that a good use of resources?"
Pros: "Nothing spectacular, but nothing bad."
Cons: "3 hour flight and no entertainment options. Disappointed with that."
Pros: "It was a comfortable night flight, great crew"
Cons: "Give a hot drink in the morning"
Cons: "I was apparently "flagged" by British Airways for extra security checks. As I understood it in London, I was randomly selected for this security check. This then apparently meant that I was to be flagged for all subsequent flights. This meant that in Chicago, after going through two other security checks that day (Zurich and London) and completing customs, I had to engage in a full Homeland security check. This involved removing protective covers from my laptop and phone that were hard to get off (not meant to be taken off regularly) and a full body search that I did not have to do in London. After many hours of traveling, this was very a frustrating experience."
Cons: "Long delay"
Pros: "The seats seem to be shrinking. The flight was flawless."
Cons: "Tight seats, but I guess that is going to be the norm now."
Pros: "Smooth flight !"
Cons: "Too tight for 6'3 male."
Pros: "Finishing my flight, being able to say I'll never fly American again."
Cons: "Without notice or warning, I was required to pay $200 for my dog, tranferring from Alaska Air, to ride in cargo for the 2nd leg of my trip. My fare was approx. $84. They would not accept cash, but made me spend another $5 on a "gift card," because I don't own credit cards. Rude, uncaring, marginally competent ground crew."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Baggage was damaged and took a long time to get to the claim area."
Cons: "Late to Tulsa again.l"
Cons: "Delay in Fresno"
Pros: "The seats on this little plane were large and comfy (which I never thought I'd say about a plane again). The crew was great, and the flight was hitchless."
Cons: "We were delayed by an hour and a half. Not that big a deal in the grand scheme of things, but it still puts a cramp in my day."
Pros: "The boarding was done well"
Cons: "This was a 6 hour flight so American could at least have offered a better choice of in flight food purchases"
Cons: "Didn't make it to Tulsa. Won't make it for almost 8 more hours. Shameful."
Pros: "YYC is a nice airport. I have found I like Canadian's more then Americans when it come to air travel."
Cons: "LAX is not a convenient airport at all."
Pros: "Nice amount of leg room!!!"
Pros: "I miss the first leg of my flight and they cancelled my whole ticket and didn’t rebook me. This was an intentional flight. I paid $1500 for the ticket and even when another airline was going to fly me to catch the second leg they denied me. This was my worst experience, I have missed flights before and I get rebooked pay some fee but I still get to my destination. I missed an opportunity to pay last respect to my dad. I’m so very disappointed"
Cons: "The customer service is just horrible. They simply don’t care about you just what you paid."
Pros: "That I got there safely"
Cons: "My bags were not sent though. I had to pick them up in London and transport then to another terminal where Jet Blue is. American says no contract with Jet Blue. Yet when I departed Sjc bags were sent through American to Jet Blue arrived in London no problem. Rather other way Around Jet Blue to American. Kayak don't sell us tickets through Amiteris because American Airlines owns them it does not work well!!!!@'m"
Pros: "On-time arrival"
Cons: "They lost a bag and then took nearly an hour to do the lost luggage report. Handoffs among three staffers (one disappeared)."
Pros: "*finally* getting rebooked"
Cons: "The aircraft was downgraded, so there were 12 "overbooked" seats. The flight was delayed several times, with each new delay only being acknowledged after the previous departure time had already passed. Eventually, the flight was "delayed" to 3:15, but then it was bumped BACK to 2:45, so one woman ended up missing the flight because she had gone to the lounge based on the 3:15 departure. I accepted a voucher, but as the original flight kept getting delayed and I couldn't receive the voucher until the doors closed, I almost missed the flight I was rebooked on. If airlines would just communicate better (e.g., tell us there's a delay *before the departure time has passed*), people would be much more willing to deal with the hassle."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "The AA station in Madison (MSN) is notoriously SLOW in downloading bags from the plane and getting them to the baggage claim. So far this flight ot is about 30 minutes from when the plane pulled into the gate and still no bags yet."
Cons: "Plane needs updating. Pretty outdated and dirty"
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were nice and tried to help, food and refreshment was good."
Cons: "1) Flight from Dallas delayed and caused me to miss the connecting flight from London to Vienna. 2) Monitor for the entertainment not working AT ALL. Crew tried to reset it multiple times, but it didn't help. So flight was longer due to delay and I was looking at the BLACK SCREEN entire time. 3) I attempted to read my book. Since it was a night flight and overhead lights were off to prevent disturbance, I needed to use reading light. Well, the reading light was not working. I called a flight attendant to assist me. She tried to help me, but confirmed that it was out of order. 4) There was not information regarding terminal for my connecting flight. Captain kindly referred us to look up this information on our individual screens. Mine was not working, neither was the screen of the passengers next to me. Not helpful at all."
Pros: "Slept very well in business. Great crew!"
Pros: "Once arrived all was fine. Once arrived all was fine."
Cons: "Being Over hour late. Updates kind of slow. But really hot on the plane"
Cons: "You wouldn't let me change my flight so I didn't even take it"
Pros: "I got home eventually"

Pros: "The crew on ground and on the plane are great"
Cons: "The planes are old and crowded"
Pros: "Everyone very nice"
Cons: "All good not dislikes"
Pros: "I liked the customer service from the employees trying to help everyone get situated from the flight cancellation."
Cons: "I didn't like how there was no communication from the airline that the flight was canceled and that we customers and employees at the Fresno airport. We should have received notification as soon as the flight was canceled so we don't have to spend all day at the airport thinking it's just a delay."
Cons: "Ladies in the front desk are super RUDE yes I said super not just rude! I WILL NEVER book with American Airlines again. Worst customer service I have ever encountered. When I left from Fresno onto when I left from Pheonix!"
Pros: "The service was good. Headrests were nice, recliner had good range."
Cons: "Would have paid more $ for more space, but not willing to pay first class ticket price $$$. Elbow room could always be improved."
Pros: "Crew quiet and professional"
Cons: "Screaming child boarded"
Pros: "Flights were delayed due to hydraulics issues, they got it fixed, turned it around quickly in Denver, made up time in the air, and got us in 20m early."
Cons: "Not sure why they add basic economy passengers to middle seats between others when there are open rows in the back. Would seem like they could set up the system to assign people to seats in the aisle/window first and then start putting them in the middle. We all moved before takeoff, but it would make things quicker and easier if they assigned seats in a more logical way."
Cons: "Very little. This was very smooth work."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Pros: "The crew made up for the delay."
Cons: "The delay and the communication were awful."
Cons: "Was not informed that there was a required 30 minute check in and was given incorrect information about what time the airport opened. Causing us to miss our flight and purchase new tickets at an extra $620, whereas I believe it should have been a free adjustment. I will never use united or kayak again."
Pros: "They canceled the flight"
Pros: "How pleasant everyone was"
Pros: "I was pleased that I was able to carry on my small suitcase. The flight was on time and in the same Concourse as the previous flight I needed. That allowed a tighter layover to work seamlessly."
Cons: "I want a nonstop flight from CLE to MAD"
Pros: "We were late leaving Fresno we sat on the runway for 40 minutes and 100° we left Fresno to Denver so the plane from Denver had to wait for us"
Pros: "The Fresno staff was incredible, patient, and very helpful. Take-off and landing was super smooth."
Cons: "There was no food, only a glass of water. The steward was very kind though. The layover at LAX seemed unrealistic. When I called ahead of time about it, a United employee told me it was "do-able". We barely made it, even with riding on the skycap's cart. If I hadn't had that cart ride, I would definitely have missed it. Reasonable layovers would be more helpful."
Cons: "Staff was rude and not helpful at all. Delayed over 3 hours waiting on crew coming in on another plane. Short staffed."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "For the second time this trip our seats were changed and we were separated seating both of us with strangers after we had chosen our seats at the time of the ticket purchase"
Cons: "Poor Steward. Very unfriendly"
Pros: "Got me on an earlier flight, nice guy at the desk."
Cons: "Seats way too small, no food, no on flight entertainment"
Pros: "Loved boarding process. Nearly impossible to get down the aisle with carry on, personal item and a coat. Come on...."
Pros: "Checked my carry on for free."
Cons: "left an hour behind scheduled departure."
Cons: "Check in reservation clerk really hassled me when checking in when she saw the reservation under my name was spelled wrong. She acted as if I was NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO BOARD!! I did not make the error! They had my Date of birth, my service dog traveling with me, and still were acting like they weren't going to check me in! Extremely stressful!!"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Pros: "Very friendly hostesses and Avery welcoming feel"
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight because of maintenance problems. Had to wait an extra 5 hours just to get to Las Vegas. BULLSHIT! Never again!!"
Pros: "Love the non-stop service from Newark to Madison."
Cons: "What can you do? This model of jet is just a shuttle train. Only a two hour flight, but the snack is a bit chintzy. Not up to Lufthansa standards."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Delayed flight caused me to miss my connection and caused numerous problems."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food quality"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Was not a smooth flight"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled and i was not informed of this. Waited for 9+ hours just for my next flight"
Pros: "NOTHING THIS FLIGHT GOT CANCELED"
Cons: "all flights from Madison to Chicago ended up being canceled, but they did not tell us until around 430pm. I ended up having to take a bus after waiting in the airport for 4 hours. If I had taken the bus as soon as I arrived I would not of missed my job interview."
Pros: "I liked the price and the time of departures."
Cons: "I didn't like that my flight got canceled and rebooked 3 different times. My final flight got delayed 8 times. I, a 22 young woman traveling alone, got stranded in Washington traveling from New York at 1am because of weather. United didn't give me money for a cab, couldn't help me with a hotel since they were all full and told me they wouldn't be refunding my pet deposit or help with my next flight out pet deposit. I wish I could give them less than 1 star overall. They didn't care about my well being or safety at all. Very disappointed United"
Pros: "Plenty of leg room but I had the very back seat so it doesn't lean back"
Cons: "The very last seat doesn't lean back because of thewall."
Cons: "Airline did not provided information ahead of time related to carry on being checked on the gate bc of size. My carry on was small and still was checked at the gate because the aircraft did not have space for it. I was not provided with that information ahead of time"
Pros: "Flight crew was great and funny!"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and not a lot of space. No entertainment"
Pros: "terminal in Boston Boarding arrived early"
Cons: "group of 2 was split up"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing, the flight was cancelled and the airline offered little or no assistance."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and we needed to return home for work the next day. It was the last flight out so we asked about a ground transportation voucher. The telephone agent told us to see the customer service rep at the terminal counter. After waiting inline for almost 45 minutes we asked an agent who was standing there about a voucher. She checked with a supervisor and said they would not provide them, we would have to wait to see an agent. Rather than miss the next bus to be delayed another 2 hours waiting for someone to tell us they wouldn't do anything for us, we left the line and purchased bus tickets. We had to pick up our luggage at the airport because we 'missed' our flight rather having it delivered. We understand flight cancelations but at no time during the process, especially at the airport, did we ever get the impression that anyone cared about us or what happened to us. We will avoid this airline."
Cons: "At least one check-in baggage should be free for the price."
Cons: "Had to rebook."
Pros: "The way they said "Hello" to me. Other than that, the water was good."
Cons: "Everything else. My flight was delayed for weather, and I missed my boarding by 2 MINUTES, and they rejected me at the gate, and told me my seat was already taken by stand-by. Then the lady I went to see at the customer service desk was rude, and rejected me from first class even though it was THEIR MISTAKE I was booked there. Then I didn't even land at LAX! I had to take another flight that landed at Ontario so I can make my appointment on time. Will NEVER travel with United again!"
Pros: "The crew overheard me offer my scarf to the lady next to me because I noticed that she was cold, and a few minutes later they offered her a blanket without us even asking for one. We were both so shocked that they knew what we needed before we asked for it."
Cons: "When i came back to my country everything was ok until i got my credit details and i saw that your receptionist stole money from my card. I should have pay for an exstra suitcase 60 dollars so i gave the receptionist my credit card. Yesterday I got my credit details i saw an extra charge of 400 hundred dollars !!! I am so mad and im waiting for you to cancel it and recompense. I hope it will be soon before i involve a layer and require you. My phone number is +97224518838."
Pros: "See above comment"
Pros: "nothing my plane was canceled"
Cons: "that my trip was canceled"
Cons: "Failed to compensate my flights and hospitality. Not a better place to be stranded. Fresno, ca. Not impressed."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and attempted to be helpful."
Cons: "Was delayed and missed my connection home. The hotel provided by United was dirty and run down. They gave me food vouchers for the hotel but the hotel did not have any food options. I was rescheduled on a flight home and was forced to sit in the row in front of the bathroom by the window. Likely the most cramped seat on the aircraft. I literally could not sit upright with out my head striking the wall. To top it all off they lost my bag. After hours of wrangling with the baggage folks it could not be located in their computer system at all. I was told they could only reimburse for $3,500. Needless to say I had some expensive camera equipment in my checked luggage and was not too excited about this reimbursement cap. By some miracle the bag ended up at my home destination. It was off in the corner of baggage claim. No tag on it, no one standing around it, no one knew anything about it. I just happen to walk by it on my way out of the airport. Horrible experience. I think I’ll stick with the other airlines in the future."
Pros: "Done with United! Will never fly them again. Every flight is overbooked. Just a matter of time before you get screwed."
Pros: "They cancelled my flight from Chicago to Madison. It was super stressful."
Pros: "Danny the crew member"
Cons: "Our pilot called in sick and the airline had no back up. It delayed our flight 1 hour and 20 minutes, which made us miss our connecting flight. We stayed in the airport 10 hours to get a flight out to Portland. Whole day of vacation ruined."
Pros: "Got from point A to B efficiently."
Pros: "On time/ early"
Cons: "The tray table was tiny."
Pros: "We would not fly Frontier again unless it was a day trip."
Cons: "We booked this flight as part of a four week international trip. We were flying with quite a big of luggage, all of which they charged us massive fees for without leniency. Our ticket costs ended up being the same as other airlines who would have provided better service/facilities."
Cons: "More room in seat"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful."
Cons: "Knee space is tight for someone with long legs."
Cons: "It would be more efficient if they called the boarding passengers by row. Nothing worse than having to stand 5th in line in that skinny aisle watching someone in the 3rd row trying to get their carry-on in the overhead bin when my seat is in the 24th row. Or is that because some passenger was not listening to directions...?"
Pros: "Fastest most drama free flight ever"
Cons: "No fast menu foods in madison. I honestly wanted a day did burger for the first time ever but had to head to town first"
Pros: "The plane was clean the flight crew was polite. No real issues once a pilot arrived in Vegas."
Cons: "I heard that this happens a lot with Frontier. Everyone arrived about 2 hours before the flight before receiving the notification of the delay. The pilot announced he was contacted last minute in Denver to fly to Vegas and cover the flight."
Cons: "Flight delayed - missed important meeting"
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "The flight boarded when it was supposed to be taking off."
Pros: "Excellent flight. Would absolutely go again"
Cons: "3$ for soda?"
Pros: "On time, early in fact"
Cons: "Tip during drink service"
Pros: "Quick service"
Cons: "Expensive bags and small amount of room on the plane"
Pros: "Crew was very professional & upbeat. Meal vochure was provided for 4+ hour delay"
Cons: "Multiple delays, & bad, poor & nonsensical information about delays. This is not my normal experience with this flight."
Pros: "The pilots flew the plane well and the crew gave a good preflight tutorial."
Cons: "Delayed bording time by over 1/2 hour, 4 crying babies, snippy/jerky flight crew and check in personel also charged me $75 on top of the $45 bag charge on my originating flight because my bag was 8 lbs too heavy, yes a whopping 58 whole lbs."
Pros: "Even though plane on tarmac for 20 min, made time up in the air for an on time arrival"
Cons: "Flight has attendant had very negative attitude, smart mouth remarks and seemingly did not want to be there or working at the time"
Pros: "This was the only flight out of 4 that the stewardess smiled and was helpful. Flight 160. I wanted to cry when I was actually treated like a person rather than a cattle call."
Cons: "I barely caught this flight as my connection was an hour late. I wished I had time to grab some food or drink. I went all day without anything but two small glasses of water (1 per flight). My anger though resides in my cheap 250 ticket actually ended up costing over 450. Traveling by air is becoming only for the elite of society. Next time I fly, I will travel with an airline that costs are upfront."
Cons: "I am a 75 year old female and I did not hear the overhead page for early boarding, as I am a little slower to get on the plane and would appreciate the extra time to get into my seat. When I went to board the plane (zone 3), another passenger and his girlfriend wanted to sit together and refused to move out of my window seat, even after I told the gentleman I paid for that seat, including extra ($6) for the window seat. I felt I was bullied me out of my seat that I paid extra money for and because then another passenger in the other row yelled at me to "sit down" so I would not hold up the other passengers from sitting down in their seats. I was forced to take the seat the gentleman's girlfriend must have had in the middle of the two other passengers in the other row across from where I was scheduled to sit. I know I could have called the airline stewardess but felt pressured to stay where I was because of the other passenger I had to sit next to who had yelled at me earlier. I wish there was more of an attempt to let elderly passengers board first."
Pros: "Flight leave on time and arrive early in Madison"
Cons: "No food/snack included with fare"
Cons: "They made us get on and off the plane, first they said leave your bags on the plane, then take them off, then reload and put them back on. They didn't know what they were doing. On top of that, the baggage fees are outrageous. I will never fly frontier again."
Pros: "A bit annoying with add on fees. Just a bus ride basically."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant overall and my inflight experience was fine."
Cons: "The check-in process was terrible. I had checked in and had the tickets available on my phone but just needed to drop off a checked bag -- and it took over an hour and a half to do so! I was only able to drop off the bag when "last call" for my flight was announced. I arrived at 6:15am for an 8:35am flight and made it to the gate just in time for boarding. Unacceptable."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The flight attendant talking throughout the entire flight. It was an early flight and wanted to sleep."
Pros: "Everything was great! My fave airline!"
Cons: "All good! Want to fly Frontier in May if I can!!"
Cons: "The extra charges are ridiculous. I paid out close to $100 on top of the ticket charge. Ridiculous. Never again and I'm telling everyone I know. Unbelievable. I wish I had known more about it. Also, it's nearly impossible to talk to a person for information. I don't know how you stay in business, let alone try to expand.."
Pros: "cancelled our flight for 5 days and offered zero compensation"
Cons: "I left for the airport 2 hours before my flight because it takes 30 minutes to get there. My flight was on-time when I left for the airport. When I got to the airport it was cancelled. WTH! No weather issues in either the from or to location so not sure why there was not more advanced notice. HORRIBLY handled by Frontier. This has happened too many times and I will NOT be flying Frontier again. Terrible planes and very, very unreliable."
Cons: "We were delayed because of mechanical /electrical problems. They allowed passengers to get off the plane. They finally admit they can't fix it. Now we have to wait while the people who got off get their bags again. Then we have to switch dates. Our flight was supposed to land at 7:19 it was after 11 o'clock p.m. my mother had the same experience on Frontier on Wednesday flying out to Denver. Frontier needs to get their act together it will be a long time before I book with them again."
Cons: "Canceled flight and no flights till Friday [4 days away]. Frontier incompetence."
Cons: "Noises sales pitch."
Pros: "flight was smooth and on time"
Cons: "My luggage didn't make it with me on Wednesday. I have to wait until Friday."
Pros: "The flight was exactly like any Delta or AA flight minus the frills at a very reasonable price. I added a bag & seat choice package for $100, but even with that additional cost my flight was $200 less than it would have been."
Cons: "The seats were pretty much very fancy, padded lawn chairs, and the tray tables that fold out from the arm rests are pretty much useless, but these are minor complaints compared to the value of the flight."
Cons: "I was notified about our flight delay this morning - at least six hours before boarding. There was no explanation of why, which doesn't always happen, but odd that alternate arrangements couldn't be made during that time. When it came to the planned boarding time, there was no update. The city name was removed from the board and a new one added. Still no update. We started boarding about 20 minutes after the delayed *departure* time. Passengers from the next listed flight kept shuffling in line, based on the confusion of the destination update displayed. It was a mess. Saving money on flights was not worth this hassle. Beyond the flight itself, here are some other gems of the experience: *upon arriving at the airport, at least half of the kiosks weren't working. There were hundreds of people in line, and five counters staffed. *when we arrived on our previous flight, we were early! However, there was a plane at our gate...and it had mechanical problems. We sat on the runway for at least half an hour."
Cons: "The $17 price for a seat when i checked in. Why would that not be part of the ticket price when i bought the ticket."
Cons: "I waited an hour and a half in line only to have the gate changed and for you to not let me on my flight. Horrible experience."
Pros: "timely boarding and arrival. Courteous staff."
Cons: "Upon arrival, baggage took over 15 minutes to be available to passengers and it was at different carol that we were told on plane. Frontier flight from Madison to Denver a week earlier was late to board. Time was made up in flight only to remain on tarmac for an hour and twenty minutes. It seems there is a shortage of staff. Was not informed of additional charges for carry on baggage."
Cons: "I don't like that they charge for everything. Seat assignment for two people traveling together, carry-on luggage and checked bags (note that checked is actually cheaper). They don't have gluten free food. In Madison, at a certain point there are no staff at the ticketing counter. They are at the gate and cannot help you."
Cons: "Don't mention a mechanical issue on a flight I just got off of, that's a little scary boarding the same plane. Tight, uncomfortable seats, no entertainment, only free water. Very poor, not the same Frontier I flew a few years ago."
Cons: "I was seated next to a lady with a dog. Why is a dog on the plane? She called it a service dog, not comfort dog. Had no identification collar stating either. I paid extra to sit closer to front of plane and this is what I get?? I have also have allergies so didn't appreciate being next to a dog. It sat on the ladies lap and looked at me with its tongue hanging out and panting while the lady slept the entire flight. Planes are full of germs already without adding the mess of a dog. Too many people are taking advantage of this whole comfort dog thing. New rules and regulations are needed. Snakes can get certified as comfort animals. What's to prevent someone from bringing such an animal for their comfort? When people board a plane it is expected that it will have human beings in it. Anything else should be known ahead of time. What about people allergic or afraid of animals. Please think of your paying customers first. My flight was $400. I should get better treatment than a $75 dog."
Cons: "Changed flight, Sat on runway for an hour. Missed my bus, had to wait 4 hours for another bus. Got all my stuff stolen while on the bus."
Pros: "We chose Frontier because it offered flights to and from our home airport at times that fit our schedule."
Cons: "I thought the price was competitive, but with all the extra charges, it certainly wasn't. When you check in you'll find that checked bags cost more than most other airlines. If you are bringing a carry on, that costs too. When you choose your seats, they cost extra. When you get on the plane you'll find cheaply made, narrow seats, with very little leg room. On top of that, the seats don't recline. Want a drink or a snack, even a small plastic cup of soda comes with a price. But to top it all off, one of our bags didn't arrive, and we're still working with Frontier to locate it and deliver it to us. I'll find an option other than Frontier when I fly again."
Pros: "Nothing, I was just glad it was over. The staff weren't awful but I had no interaction with them other than to day goodbye."
Cons: "First impression was that the tray table is the size of a hardcover book. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. The seats seemed like they might be doable but right away the armrest became a source of pain. After an hour in the seat of became a huge pain. By there time we landed another hour later my back and butt were very sore. I will not voluntarily ride in another am Frontier flight again."
Cons: "Frontier is now charging for seat selection, yet another hidden fee. Between the baggage fee for each leg of the trip and the seat selection, it was an additional $85."
Cons: "We were delayed on the plans for 2 hours. Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great flight crew."
Cons: "Two hours late."
Cons: "Delays and gate changes"
Cons: "Couldn't pick a seat prior to check in without a fee"
Cons: "Apology is at least"
Pros: "Great Crew! This guy was a stand up comedian and hilarious! Kept us totally entertained!"
Cons: "All the additional costs for baggage. Yikes! A cheap flight can become very expensive."
Pros: "The only thing I liked was the very funny attendant. He lightened the atmosphere and made me smile."
Cons: "I couldn't check in early because you wanted to charge for the seat I already paid for. Then, you charged me for a carry on. Who doesn't have a carry on? The attendant at the gate was extremely rude. The seats were uncomfortable. The plane made a high pitch squealing noise that made it impossible to even talk with my husband. You charged me for carry on bags on the way home but not on the way there which made for a horrible surprise. I find charging for carry on bags appapalling. I paid hundreds of dollars for the flight and you can't even handle a carry on bag without charging me? I will never fly Frontier again and have already spread this around on Facebook."
