Airline reviews

Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. The flight got in slightly early. Baggage was swiftly delivered after our arrival."
Cons: "Very little legroom. I would have appreciated a small lunch item, beyond a tiny bag of almonds or two small cookies. But this is where we are these days with air travel."

Pros: "Crew could have been more helpful, had a 30 min layover and the gate was very far away. They could have told us directions"

Pros: "The gate agents and flight crew were very accommodating."
Cons: "I was extremely annoyed that TSA Pre-Check was unavailable at Terminal 2 at 8:15am. This is unacceptable and not the TSA's fault. I fault the airline for this oversight. Delta needs to communicate better to the passengers if there is a possibility of this service being unavailable at an airport."

Cons: "Food offered in first"

Cons: "The coffee could’ve tasted better."

Pros: "Crew was awesome. Movie was awesome. Delta always comes through."

Cons: "The airport."

Cons: "Even the baggage was quick (highly unusual for Columbus, Ohio)! Everything went smoothly."

Cons: "Person next to me overflowed into my seat…"

Cons: "Flight was delayed more than 4 hours. I switched flights to try to beat the 4 hour delay but was still delayed 4 hours. After verifying with delta t am members that my bags had been rechecked they had not"

Pros: "Although the weather was sketchy and the flight was delayed about 2 hours, the actual flight was much smoother than forecasted."

Cons: "It was a late flight and didn't see the flight crew much at all"

Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Boarding was fast and efficient, nobody bumrushed."
Cons: "The non-reclining seat right next to the bathroom door opening should not exist. I was miserable there; I swear everyone on the plane made sure to take a dump on this <2 hour flight. Also none of the windows on any of these small planes line up with the actual positions of seats and it sucks."

Pros: "Excellent crew, snacks and coffee, comfortable economy seats. Plane landed 15 min early. Bags beat me to the carousel."

Pros: "Generally, Delta is cleaner, their terminals are much nicer, and the experience is better than one with American and United. I wish they had more direct flights to my normal destinations--I'd fly with them more!"
Cons: "Someone unloaded a lot of crumbs on my tray table and they all got smooshed on the back of the seat between the tray table and chair. It was pretty nasty. (The tray table was clean, the back of the seat wasn't. Please be nasty.)"

Pros: "Gate Agent was extremely helpful and compassionate regarding making sure our family (traveling with adolescent children)was accommodated ."

Pros: "On Time, comfortable seats, good coffee and mixed nuts, smooth flight and landing."

Pros: "Never got ticket or email or booking number. Called my bank they said charge still pending. I asked if they could cancel. Bank said yes. Told them to cancel and rebooked throught Delta website. Got eticet. But charge was not cancelled. At airport I had 2 tickets. Working with bank. Today gate agent gave me 1st ticket number. Used Kayak and delt never had this issue. Email not changed or misspelled."
Cons: "No eticket or booking number recieved."

Pros: "Food was amazing tasted and seasoned well. Not bland, really good salad and chicken."
Cons: "Delay. (liked kayak delay updates tho!) crew not very attending and it looked like they didnt care. In order to keep folks busy because of the delay. They gave out immigration and customs papers out, but refused to give pen. I literally didn't had one and answer from the crew was like that. " Excuse me do you have a pen by any chance?" . "NO! I dont! asked them" pointing out to other crew members, -this is the best part- the female stewardess had clearly visibly a pen in her front shirt pocket! Sitting around and trying to kill time and no pen still. While busy with food and other stuff, i fell asleep. Then after a while when going to the restroom i asked the male steward if he would have a pen please, he pointed out they dont have any pens. ( please note he marked on his check board, who is getting which meal on the first class)"

Pros: "Female flight attendant was incredibly personable and had a bubbly personality. Definitely made you want to smile"

Pros: "Movie selection was great!"

Pros: "Always nice to be on an American plane out of an American airport.....SO much more professional. :))"

Pros: "The initial boarding process was quick, smooth flight"
Cons: "I've never had a flight wait over 30 minutes past departure got other people to make a connection and get on to this flight. Seems beyond normal and wrong to those that were there in time and on the flight to support an on time departure"

Cons: "For the second consecutive Delta flight, one at LGA, one at JFK, (it’s never happened on any other airline) TSA pre-check was closed and over a dozen agents trying to upsell the CLEAR program were working hard to get people to spend $175 not to wait in the resulting one hour long line."

Pros: "Had tv & movies available but kept losing signal"
Cons: "Terrible turbulence. Very rough landing. No beverage service. Late taking off."

Pros: "The professionalism of Delta employees, timeliness of flt."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"

Pros: "The service on board is always GREAT! in Aeromexico"
Cons: "The flight was canceled and we were put in another flight next night. But the staff in Buenos Aires run the situation chaotically and made mistakes that infuriated many passengers. They need more training to learn how to say "I am sorry" more often and know how to avoid getting into arguments with passengers."

Pros: "The crew and service were outstanding, seat was comfortable."

Pros: "I was going for weekend trip and because of delays I would've been there less than 20 hours. But Delta was terrific in giving me a refund and essy to work with via Twitter. 2 hour phone delay but they called me back to complete refund."
Cons: "Chaos at gates. Changed gate 3 times. No real updates."

Pros: "Even with the weather being bad, the flight crew handled the situation really well. No one on the plane freaked out which was awesome, so I'm happy with the way they handled it."
Cons: "The weather was pretty nasty so we had to be re-routed to Cleveland to get more gas before landing in Columbus. It definitely wasn't the airline's fault, but it still was annoying. Thankfully I didn't miss anything!"

Cons: "Super delayed. Sat on runway for 2.5 hours"

Pros: "friendly courteous staff"
Cons: "didn't have the tapas box, or the crave box or any food box for sale...the flight attendant did give me extra cookies and pretzels"

Pros: "The crew was very competent and friendly."
Cons: "Insufficient seating area, no meal offered."

Cons: "See above."

Pros: "I was very grateful to have made this flight on standby."
Cons: "Someone has to sit in the seat next to the restroom. Had I a choice in the matter, I would have preferred to sit elsewhere. But as I said, I was grateful to have made the flight, and arrive at my destination a mere 3 hours late."

Pros: "Got on earlier flight as standby."

Pros: "Cookies"
Cons: "Late"

Pros: "This doesn't really have to do with Delta Airlines however it does affect my experience. I had a very rude TSA agent speak to me na very degrading tone prior to boarding the plane. This experience affected my travel experience with Delta. I realize this person is not a Delta employee however the rudeness that I experienced affected my travel experience."

Cons: "Paid for Comfort+ at the Kiosk. My app said I had a Comfort+ seat, but at boarding found out I had two (yes, two) non Comfort+ seats assigned to me. Had to call and tweet to get my payment for Comfort+ back. All in all a very poor showing for Delta's seat assignment and reservation system."

Cons: "If they can’t serve beverages. Can we be allowed o e water bottle through security?"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The crew was rude, we left over an hour late due to human error, there was no food for sale and the internet was down"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "DCA poorly organized"

Cons: "i was on a commuter jet for 2 1/2 hours which was cramped and uncomfortable. no wifi or any entertainment. we sat on the tarmac when we landed for approximately 10 minutes even though we were not early."

Cons: "Super hot inside the cabin and little we could do to lower the temp"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and well organized. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "By the time the snack service was completed, the plane was already descending and the crew had to pick up the service items before people had a chance to finish."

Pros: "I've been flying Spirit lately to save money, so know that this is my comparison. American Airlines staff were friendly and helpful, the website was easy to use for things such as changing seats and adding bags, and I really appreciate the updates from AA via email and text. I appreciate the snack."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "The 2 flight attendants who continued to work this flight were amazing. The gate agent in Phoenix was also great."
Cons: "7 hour delay initially because of a mechanical problem, but massively exacerbated by an inability to find crew. Disappointing...."

Cons: "My seat was disgusting when I went to sit in it. Then I discovered the seat was broken. 24A"

Pros: "Early arrival!"

Pros: "Very nice new plane."

Pros: "Second flight had more comfortable seating in comparison to our first flight."

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Getting through security at O'Hare was horrible. My plane seat was too upright and felt like it was not bolted to the floor properly."

Pros: "Quick flight, great crew, orderly boarding. Updates to gate were clearly communicated"
Cons: "Very annoyed at "Basic Economy" being a thing. Annoying way to get more $ for the same seat. Avoiding any airline with this status."

Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Plane was a little bigger from Grand Rapids and they moved us around to balance the plane and a lot of us got better seats."

Cons: "British Airways/American Airlines lost/delayed luggage again! Then send an email in the middle of night with a link to schedule home delivery of the luggage that was valid for 4 hours only. It is clearly an attempt to cheat out of their responsibility of home delivery of the luggage that was delayed the second time. Poor, poor service by American Airlines."

Cons: "The crew was very disappointing!!!!!!"

Cons: "No overhead space"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "It’s a commuter. It’s tiny. In flight left trash with us till plane was about to land. Pilots seemed inexperienced. Landing was hard, braking was hard approach was awkward and it was a beautiful day with no wind. Pilot shortage isn’t helping the regionals."

Pros: "Flight attendant was beyond excellent, Yaniel, who smiled and greeted me helping me to my singular seat on the right side of the plane. He was very professional and kind, with a very well appearance and a fantastic attitude. He was quick with delivering my snack and coffee. Very pleased!!!! First flight attendant to ever make the trip as exceptional as possible. Thank you Yaniel very much."
Cons: "Unbelievable wait times at LGA. Late arrival of plane, extremely late departure at over an hour passed original departure time. Waste of money choosing that ticket and time frame when it was clearly not a concern of American Airlines that I was missing my rides, late getting to CMH etc."

Cons: "Waited an extra 30 minutes for luggage to be loaded. Every American ( British airways partner) flight we took was delayed."

Pros: "Nothing about the flight we screwed around before takeoff, in the air as well as on the ground. Wasted an hour and a half, missed my connection"
Cons: "Everything."

Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable, no entertainment, barely a snack. Sadness."

Cons: "A two-stop flight turned into a three-stop flight and lost connecting flights!"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "NA"

Cons: "I guess I was lucky to get a seat at all, since this last leg of my itinerary was deleted from my ticket when I got to the airport. So my bag couldn't be checked through, and they wanted to charge me for it even though it was a connection to the international flight I had just taken. A truly dreadful experience."

Pros: "DCA based AA gate agents were awesome. We were booked on a flight that was delayed, turned out there was a flight about to depart (it had been delayed 2.5hrs due to weather), but was departing prior to our reg scheduled flight so they put us on standby. No doubt the crew was also columbus based and eager to get home...as they did. Couldn’t be more pleased to get home"

Cons: "Seats are cramped"

Pros: "40 minute flight, on time, no complaints."

Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"

Pros: "Smooth takeoff and landing. The seats were comfortable for a 3 hour flight."
Cons: "Stuffy on the plane. This might not be the airline’s problem but it was hot and the air vent didn’t cool me down."

Pros: "As usual, the Cathay Pacific staff were awesome and very professional. Never hesitated to serve the passengers with infants/kids and elderly people. My overall experience was great!! Thank you to all staff!!"

Cons: "Have to pay for wifi use. Entertainment used to be included in flights and was apart of your airfare."

Pros: "The plane was very comfortable. The steward as very helpful - just a cup of coffee when I entered the plane - but after nearly missing connections, it was very welcome."
Cons: "The flight was perfect."

Pros: "Smooth at GRR. A little Delay in CLT. It was a good experience because we weren't on a deadline to be somewhere."

Pros: "Smooth ride and friendly helpful airline atendents."

Pros: "Bridget was managing the cancellation lines with finesse, compassion, and urgency. She was a star! The rebooked flight was fast, comfortable, and landed early."
Cons: "Previous flight was canceled and forced us to stay in DC an extra day. Watched flights continue to arrive and depart from our hotel room. Rebooked using the mobile app but could not check in on mobile or at the kiosk. Waited in line for almost 2 hours for AA to simply check us in and print passes. The flight did not get catering refreshed after landing in DC so no refreshments or snacks were offered during the flight home."

Cons: "I'm pregnant, and didn't have time before my connecting flight to get food at the airport. I was sitting near the back of the plane, and was ready to purchase food. By the time the cart reached my row, all the food options were literally sold out. I ate the free cookie and had some apple juice, but wanted something with some protein. I guess I'll remember to pack more snacks next time."

Pros: "Awesome crew. On time."

Pros: "worst experience. Airplane people not so good"

Pros: "Crew was nice"

Cons: "The seats were so old, I didn't have a screen to watch movies on and it was really really cold"

Pros: "It was a fairly routine flight. Could use a more substantial snack for a four hour flight."
Cons: "While waiting for our baggage in Phoenix, we noticed a few random bags with tears, rips and clothes hanging out. Then we saw our suitcase. The zipper was torn away from the lining so that it no longer closes all the way. There items hanging out of the gap. What was happening in the basement that caused at least 4 damaged bags?"

Pros: "the plane, a 380, had comfortable seats, fewer occupants, more and easier access to bathrooms, did not like the larger plane I flew on going to Australia, it held 700 persons could physically reach the lights and when on, they didn't disturb anyone vegetarian food was delicious and nutritionally sound and varied love the soft blankets"
Cons: "not a very good choice of current movies"

Cons: "Old Equipment"

Cons: "Unprofessional, rude, unorganized, & just ridiculous!!!!"

Pros: "The flight crew was exetrmely helpful"
Cons: "Even for a more room seat it was a bit tight"

Pros: "The flight attendants were not only exceedingly courteous, but they also knew how to put their guests in a good mood. They had fun with their job, which put me in a much better mood than I would have otherwise been in. Also, flight was efficient."
Cons: "Not much to dislike, good all around. We left the runway a bit late, but I'm guessing that wasn't anything the crew could control."

Pros: "This was my first experience flying United. The staff and pilot were friendly even though everyone seemed grumpy and tired. There was a poor baby that cried almost the whole flight-I get it, I was tired and wanted to cry too...ha! They handled everyone with patience and a smile."
Cons: "When we landed in Columbus we were stuck on the plane for almost a half hour because there were issues with the walking bridge. This was annoying."

Cons: "The onboard wifi was not working."

Pros: "On my flight home from Columbus, there was one guy running the whole ship! He. Was. Everything!!! So Attentive but not overly so. And he read my mind and gave me what I needed before I even realized I did. Thank you to him for one of my best flights!"
Cons: "There really wasn't an entertainment option. A lot of airlines these days have much better service that's simple yet good. Also, just a small pack of pretzels? Fail. You have to keep up with the Deltas and Jetblues of the world!"

Pros: "Short flight so not all questions applied"
Cons: "Too small seats"

Pros: "Flight left on time! No problem in OHare with transferring planes. Next flight also on time."

Pros: "Crew staff was excellent"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hours due to a delayed aircraft; followed by a broken seat. Seat seemed to have tape wrapped around the seat back tray."

Cons: "Group 5 was a very delayed boarding beyond what it should have been with no explanation. Felt like second class citizen"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and had plenty of leg room"

Pros: "The crew were very understanding that we all just wanted to be home (the flight was delayed for three hours, so we didn't get home until 2am). They were efficient and got us home safely and quickly."
Cons: "I was not impressed with United and how they handled the delay. The staff did not care that we were waiting for 5 hours for a plane they couldn't even guarantee was coming. No workers were at the gate for a long time to even help out customers."

Pros: "Great flight."

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "feeling cramped"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Plane was delayed 1 hrs because short of crew member"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was 2.5 hours late and during this time the crew instructed us to leave our seatbelts on and remain seated. The crew "didn't know" when were going to leave. No snacks were passed out during this flight or during the time we had to wait. The crew was hiding in the back of the plane giggling and gossiping about people which I found to be very rude. I could hear their whole conversation making my trip a terrible experience."

Cons: "I purchase the economy plus seat, hoping to get some sleep. But, the seat did not recline at all! It was so uncomfortable that I could not rest. This was not worth the extra $57 I paid."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and was very responsive with passengers."
Cons: "Flight was delayed so we ended up arriving about 40 minutes late. Not enough leg room which ends up making lots of people grumpy."

Pros: "Time of flight"
Cons: "Crew. The flight attendant in the forward cabin was rude and yelled at the passengers."

Cons: "Flights were all delayed or cancelled"

Cons: "The aircraft smelled like the restroom due to the fact the aircraft came out of the hangar and the bathroom didn't get cleaned. This flight was delayed as well."

Pros: "This is not a long flight (Grand Rapids, MI to Newark, NJ: just under 2 hours). There was a minor delay for departure of 20 minutes that Kayak and United kept us well aware of. The Grand Rapids, Ml airport is one of my new favorites -it's small, friendly, comfortable and quick and easy to navigate."

Cons: "Left about 15 minutes late. But we didn't miss any connections so everything turned out okay."

Pros: "Slow return of carry on at end of flight....crowded jetlway with so many waiting."

Pros: "Fast flight, on-time"
Cons: "Old plane, uncomfortable seats, really dirty looking bathroom"

Pros: "Plane was very comfortable. Attendants were friendly and it was very smooth and quick!"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Maybe pick a packet food that is more favoured by more people. The wasabi peas weren't a good choice for our family"

Cons: "I cancelled it and it appears it didn't really cancel"

Cons: "Good trip overall."

Pros: "Even though it was a bumpy flight do to strong winds, the pilot did his best to find smooth air"
Cons: "The baggage claim took forever. Our flight actually disappeared from the tv screen and our luggage was not out. Finally after waiting about 20 minutes it popped back up on the screen and them arrived. This is the second time this has happened to me in Columbus and I don't fly there too often"

Cons: "Our plane was delayed leaving Grand Rapids. Once in Houston there was no gate available causing another 10 minute delay. All bags were required to be checked plane side so once we finally got off the plane it took another 10 minutes to get our bags. Many passengers had tight connections and had to rush to their next flight. My connection was already tight as it was - and I had to go to a completely different terminal very far from where I was to catch it. Five of us were on that flight connecting to San Diego. We finally made it to the gate. The plane was still there but the door was closed so we were not allowed to board. It was the last flight out so we were stranded in Houston overnight. This caused me to miss a very important medical appointment this morning - and to have to cancel client sessions leading to a significant loss of income."

Pros: "United always has the cleanest planes I've been on the offer a lot for what they have."
Cons: "Seats are a little tight. I'm a 6'4" male knees always in the back of a seat makes for an uncomfortable ride. However the seats are the most comfortable one been on in a nation wide travel."

Pros: "The lady flight attendant as the best I have ever had. I think her name was Jan."

Pros: "Non stop service Friendly, courteous personnel"
Cons: "Cost of the flight"

Pros: "Flight was delayed because they couldn't get their passenger count straight! 30 min delay just to leave the gate!"
Cons: "When we arrived 20 mins late and then no one was at the terminal gate to put sky walk in place! After 20 min wait we had to walk down the aircraft stairs outside and go thru a door and climb two flights of stairs just to get into the airport"

Pros: "Everything was smooth and senseless. And I liked kayak updated me which baggage terminal my bags were. Saved a lot of time walking around the Dulles terminal."

Pros: "I liked that I could do self check in and get my boarding pass without joining a long line. Had a great flight and no complaints."

Pros: "We got to Columbus early"

Pros: "Great staff"

Pros: "The plane had tvs on the back of each seat"

Cons: "They didn't have wifi"

Pros: "On time, actually early love that."
Cons: "Don't even get pretzels I though United way going to upgrade food service? Maybe just if you want to pay extra?"

Pros: "Very much on time!! Love the punctuality!!"

Pros: "We had a good trip. Thank You All"

Pros: "Very nice & friendly staff. Great flight!!"

Pros: "on-time! Even a little early!"

Pros: "The trip itself was great. Even though I arrived at the airport 90 minutes before takeoff and was pre tickited and checked my bag curbside I almost missed my flight because of the long single line at security check and then my bag never got on the p!ane."
Cons: "The fact that I had to wait to get my bag until it came in on a later flight. I didn't receive my bag until 12:00 am"

Pros: "Arrived 20 minutes early!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "See below"
Cons: "Even with an over 3 hour layover in Texas we missed out connection and had to stay over night in Texas. Adding $400 to our trip with dinner and room. Only 4 desks of 60 open at passport control and only 3 desks open at customs. All to process 7000ish people. Our tax $ at work."

Cons: "Old seats are bad for my back and neck."

Cons: "Gate checked bags took 15 minutes to get back"

Cons: "Luggage was lost"

Pros: "Loved the up dates"

Pros: "I'm glad the boarding process is typically quick to stay on schedule."
Cons: "There should be a message when booking through travel sites about having to pay additionally for your seat and even carry-on baggage at the time of check-in. This never used to be policy for Frontier and I was shocked to pay $68 from Columbus to Denver and then $58 on the way back just for my carry-on and seat. I also had two unattended toddlers behind me on the way home which were disturbing the entire flight. Their mother chose to sit across the aisle for some reason and they were literally screaming the entire way. Perhaps an adult or parental guardian should be required to sit with children under the age of 6? Come on."

Pros: "What I like best is the update I get on my phone, thus during delays and how long the flight takes. I actually bought this ticket for a friend and it made trip of going to pick him up from the airport very easy."

Pros: "They delayed then cancelled flight. Refunded 1/4 of paid round trip price. Cost 3 people extra 3k for hotels and flights to get home! "Our policy is what it is" I was told. Never Again."

Pros: "The crew provided great service. Very friendly."
Cons: "Not very comfortable. Doesn't not have small things like a port to charge phones. Things that are needed for long flights and are provided by other airlines. Seems outdated."

Pros: "One lady had a medical problem after we had boarded and had to find her luggage to be taken off, the whole ordeal only lasted about 15 minutes"

Cons: "You have to pay for everything. It was $45 to check a bag, and $40 to store a bag in the overhead compartment. My husband and I would have had to pay an additional $30 to sit next to each other. On the flight out, the stewardess asked us if we wanted to buy any food or drinks, but never offered even free water. The seats are horribly uncomfortable. I was in the middle seat on a red eye, and I was so cramped and sore, I couldn't fall asleep for more than a minute. I landed feeling exhausted, sore, and miserable. This was my first and last time flying on Frontier."

Pros: "The crew were nice and polite."
Cons: "Crowded, uncomfortable seating. Flight was overbooked. Had to pay extra for everything."

Pros: "value and staff helpfulness. Also, I think it is good to see an airline discourage carry on baggage via higher pricing. Too many passengers bring large bags onto flights that seem dangerous and much too awkward getting on and off plane."
Cons: "The seats I purchased had additional leg room. I appreciated that, but the seats were cramped shoulder to shoulder and I was made very uncomfortable between two men with broad shoulders. One other thing: on this 4 hour overnight flight, I found the seats to be very uncomfortable with thin padding and no real head rest. My tailbone hurt."

Pros: "Good price cool staff"
Cons: "Wow it is so cramped. Need to get the AC working too hot"

Pros: "I am not the type of person to complain about something that is expensive, if I am receiving the services I am paying for. Therefore, I cannot complain too much about Frontier since I paid so little and received what was promised: a round-trip flight at an affordable price. I understand that, in order to be competitive, stay open for business, and keep rates low, Frontier must find additional ways to accrue income besides the base fare. However, literally everything beyond a basic ticket was vastly overpriced. "You want to bring more than two tee-shirts and a book? $30." "You want a childs ration of nuts and a soda in flight? $12. You can place them on your 3 inch tray table." And then, as we near the end of an already insufferably uncomfortable flight, we must endure a 20 minute long speech over the PA about the Frontier rewards credit card. I truly appreciate that Frontier Airlines offers competitively unheard of rates for a basic fare. But aside from being allowed to bring a only a change of shirt to Denver for the weekend, sitting in a dingy/cramped plane next to a stranger because I would not pay $42 extra to sit next to a friend, and being forced to listen to the desperate plea of a credit card signup quota, I will next time happily pay the traditional rate to take a flight somewhere where I am treated like I am not a passenger on a Malaysian Airlines flight that has somewhere along the way become lost between the importance of customer satisfaction and competitive prices."
Cons: "Maybe I should have chosen to write that down here instead. Although I am sure I will not be charged additional fees to both compliment and complain, I believe this all goes to the same department."

Cons: "Paying for a carry on bag"

Pros: "Great flight, on time, smooth"

Pros: "Overall smooth ride"
Cons: "Having almost 2 hour delay with no explaination."

Pros: "Best value for price you could ask for."

Pros: "Check in and the security screen took an hour and a half, flight delayed an hour in beautiful weather. NO TSA Pre-Check at Frontier's home base."

Pros: "Airfare appeared to be affordable and competitive. Typical flying experience."
Cons: "I just took a small backpack and duffel bag. They made me pay $40 each way for the duffel bag! I thought every airline at least gave you a personal item and carry-on. This put me in a position of having to put $80 on my personal card for a work trip or to abandon my bag. Ridiculous! I don't like being put in that situation and will remember it next time I go to book. I also recognize they need to make some money off of snacks and drinks, but to not even provide a complimentary drink of water feels extra stingy too."

Cons: "Seats too close together, stuffy, cramped, no space."

Pros: "The flight was direct. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "I wasn't told it would cost to have a carry on. There was no free drinks or snacks and no free entertainment options on board."

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The most acute plane discomfort imaginable"

Pros: "Everything was terrible. First i wasnt notified anywhere on my purchase that Frontier charges a fee for checked bags ANd carry ones!! Then everyone was super rude at me at chekc in. In Denver every check in machine wsd malfunctioninf. This caused huge lines and several people were visibly pissed cuz they misse their flights. I was rudely treated too and yelled at because i inquired how is it possible all machines wre down. Apparently this happens to them in a weekly basis."

Pros: "The gate agent was very helpful."
Cons: "The crew was so snobby. The head attendant was very condescending to everyone she talked to. She was most concerned that every one didn't get in her way. No one was allows even an arm in the isle. Her favorite quote was "this is your space (placing her hand right on either side of the passengers head), this is my space (signaling to the isle)"."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I missed my flight Saturday the 24th. I wasn't given a credit at all I had to buy a whole new ticket. The flight was delayed as always with this airline, the planes are uncomfortable, and I'd rather pay more to fly with an airline that knows how to appreciates it's customers."

Cons: "We reserved a seat and PAID an upgraded price for the reserved seats and they put us on stand by! They were so rude about it as well. I will never fly with them again"

Pros: "It was a flight home"
Cons: "Flight was 1.5 hours late due to previous flight at the gate. Gate attendant was rude to several people when the designated city on the gate "sign" changed but they were still boarding previous city. The seats are the most uncomfortable of any airline I have ever flown (I travel 25% for business)."

Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "Just ridiculous, as follows: 1-Deceptive web page at check in makes you think paying extra for seats is required 2-Seats don't recline unless you PAY EXTRA 3-Carry on bag? PAY EXTRA 4-Care for a Soda? PAY EXTRA 5-Tray table - the size of a business envelope? Really? 6-In-flight magazine? HA! Read the safety info or the back of the barf bag, that's all Frontier provides. 7-Paid $50 each to upgrade seats to front (1st class?) No refreshments, no amenities, just a bigger tray table and a reclining seat. For $50. Sat on tarmac for 1.5 hours in 90 degree heat. I know this because I could hear the pilot yelling over the radio that it was 90 degrees in the plane. No A/C while on tarmac because APU was down, according to pilot announcement. Everyone I talked to felt deceived by the online check in and the extra charge for seats (if you want to sit with your party, otherwise no guarantees). Bad representation, deceptive web check in, uncomfortable plane, zero amenities unless you PAY EXTRA. Sorry Frontier, but FAIL!!!!"

Pros: "Direct from CMH to DIA"
Cons: "Seats are one shade shy from a metal folding chair, they don't recline, charge for everything g except water! Who charges for carry on bags!?!? Frontier!!!"

Cons: "Frontier changes our flight and then wouldn't refund money for a missed flight."

Cons: "It wasn't the flight from Orlando To Cincinnati that I was upset about. I was suppose to catch a flight out of Columbus straight through to Orlando Only to find out they overbooked the flight. I had to drive another 3 hours to Cincinnati Airport to catch a flight 8 hours after original flight. I will not be booking with Frontier!"

Pros: "I really enjoyed my trip on Frontier airlines. It was efficient, the planes were clean and the staff friendly. I gave lower marks on food and entertainment because there was no entertainment aside from the magazines I brought and the food was a pay as you go affair, which I didn't use."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't care for was being charged $40 for a carry on bag. On the return flight. I didn't have checked bags."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Paying for a seat"

Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "The whole trip was very nice"

Pros: "The price. The flights to/from were smooth. Crew was experienced."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable particularly for a flight over 2 hrs."

Pros: "They kept the lights down; it was a red-eye."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, you cannot lounge unless you pay an extra $50; the entire trip should have been only $50. Felt like I was a the Dollar General. Not as cheap as it should be due to uncomfortable seats and lounging."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "the male flight attendant on our flight was spectacular. he was helpful during boarding, and was kind enough to not disturb our sleeping baby (which I'm sure the entire flight appreciated) while handling the flight. he was also friendly and quietly attentive throughout the flight. i regret not catching his name, but my wife and i both commented on how pleasant he was."

Pros: "I did not have food or entertainment."

Cons: "I would not refer anyone to travel with frontier my experience was really bad I was at gate around 50 min before they didn't allow me to check in there was problem with there site that is why we couldn't check in online but we checked our bags online I had insurance also they just gave me refund of 40$ as a ticket credit which I have to use for my name only that too for a period of 2 months."

Pros: "Boarding was quick, crew was nice, comfort was okay but for the price it was expected."
Cons: "When I booked the tickets I didn't know there was a charge associated with carry-on luggage. On my phone it was $40, at the check-in it was $45, and at the gate it was $60..."

Pros: "The crew was nice and the flight itself went well."
Cons: "Having to pay more for seats that allow you to actually have room to feel like you can breathe."

Pros: "Low Prices, Plane was clean,"
Cons: "very close to other passengers, babies crying the entire 4 hour flight on an overnight flight. Uncomfortable and disappointed seats didn't recline at all to ease the overnight flight."

Pros: "The new seats seem more comfortable, and less bulky."
Cons: "The new seats have no TVs in the back of the headrests (a feature I liked) and have a new, pathetically tiny (5"x10"?) tray table."

Cons: "Flight was 7 hours late because of staffing error and you have to buy all refreshments and basic courtesies."

Cons: "I need my money back they didn't let me on borde bkz I was 30 minutes late"

Cons: "Boarding gate was changed and there was no announcement on the flight that the connection was at a different gate."

Pros: "The flight attendant went out of her way to give us personal attention."

Pros: "Well Seated on the very first row of the first Class; and everything else went very good."

Pros: "The staff was amazingly helpful, empathetic, and kind. I genuinely enjoyed the experience because the gate attendants, crew, and pilot were fantastic."
Cons: "I did not like that I did not read the fine print and ended up having to pay at the gate for a carry on. I'd never flown Frontier before . . . but I'll know for next time: one personal item only. :)"

Pros: "New Airbus 319"
Cons: "Late. Don't know why it took so long to load baggage. You have to be careful with adding all the extras to the base price to get a true comparison. You have to pay for seat assignment which is dumb. You pay for both carry-on and checked luggage but do it well in advance"

Pros: "Disappointed that ticketing agent wouldn't let me check my bag since I was there before 45 minute deadline. Had to throw out my new shampoo and conditioner. Seats didn't recline for all nighter. Cheap, safe and on time."
