Cons: "The departure gate was changed four or five times, including after we had traipsed from one end of the concourse to the other, only to have the gate changed BACK to the one from which we came. This was at supper time; we wanted to eat in the terminal but were rousted from two different lines to change gates. We couldn't stop running back and forth long enough to eat! I got updated info more quickly from Kayak than from United, despite having signed up for email and text notifications and having the United app. Come on!! Eventually we were marched down to a narrow hallway, crowded with passengers from two other departing flights, held in formation by obviously harried gate agents and finally led outside to the ramp to board the plane. The worst boarding experience. Ever. Give me Southwest anytime."

Pros: "Boarded on time. Smooth boarding. Departed on time. Landed on time."

Cons: "Late again"

Cons: "Pay for food, cold on plane entire time, everyone bundled up in blankets, jackets but staff friendly"

Pros: "Easy going all the way"
Cons: "Having to run from one side of Denver International to the complete other side"

Cons: "Tuna and crackers as a first class snack option? And yes, pay for WiFi again."

Cons: "In both airports I was wheeled to gates and left in the way of people coming and going. I tried to get the attention of airline employees and when I did they told someone else and so I sat for between 40-60 minutes."

Pros: "Comfy roomy seats, free WiFi, free coffee"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours."

Pros: "The flight was quick and easy"

Pros: "Mediocre. The attendant was lovely."
Cons: "I hate being charged for one bag. It should be included. I'm glad I wasn't bumped off and dragged off the plane bloodied, it was a concern. Especially because I'm an Asian person."

Pros: "Boarded quickly and on time!"
Cons: "n/a"

Cons: "Flight delayed 45 min to change a tire. Takes too long to get paperwork for mechanical issues completed. Delayed 10 min on arrival while gate was readied. They had 2 hrs to get ready!!"

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to tell someone to meet me so I could hopefully be on time at work. I was not on time .! I'm unhappy !"

Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Delayed. Missed connection. Happens too often. Moving my business to southwest."

Pros: "Never been treated so disrespectful and like I was insignificant in allyour life!"

Pros: "Nkthing"
Cons: "3 hour delay, water didn't work in bathroom so there was no washing my hands, bathroom old and dirty, seats old, mismatched and dirty. Essentially a terrible flight."

Pros: "It never took off. I should have just drove from NYC to Milwaukee. It would have been faster! Now, I have to deal with baggage issues because they made me unnecessarily check my carry on."
Cons: "All of it"

Pros: "Didn't take me long to rebook the flight when it got cancelled due to weather/pilots timing out"
Cons: "The way the whole thing was handled. I ended up flying on the 5th because of the issues with weather. My general problem was with the way the situation was handled. We shouldn't have boarded the plane on the 4th given the fact that the pilots were probably gonna time out anyway. Instead of wasting time, the protocol should've been to begin rebooking everybody to another flight. Just my two cents"

Pros: "Great flight."

Cons: "I missed my connection due to long lines in customs and security. United was unable to get me another flight out that day and I ended up taking a bus back to Milwaukee instead."

Cons: "Flights were all delayed or cancelled"

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."

Pros: "The smooth take off & landing. The flight attendants were very helpful."
Cons: "Nothing"

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

Cons: "In Houston, At the gate with my ticket in hand, I was told I was not on the flight and would have to be scheduled on the next flight. The boarding pass in my hand matched the flight and time with the seat I picked out online when I purchased the ticket. Then a bad storm went through and many flights were cancelled. (Not the fault of United of course). About 9 hours later with a new boarding pass, I went to the gate to board and was told once again that I was not on that flight even though I was holding a new boarding pass!! What is going on here!? How can this happen twice to the same person, let alone happen at all??!"

Pros: "We were on time and that was great!"

Pros: "Had crosswinds and thermals but pilot and crew handled it well. On time arriving,"

Pros: "That trip was great to Housto!"

Pros: "Nowadays the gate closes 10 minutes before takeoff which really helps get the plane off on time as we can make connections. Some may not know this and find it frustrating. As a regular traveler I appreciate the move."

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

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."

Cons: "Same as above"

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

Cons: "Too many people on the plane during Covid"

Pros: "The lady was nice."
Cons: "I hate having to pay for every bag, a half a glass of water, vinyl that looka like it was clawed by a grizzly and then proceeds to stick to my legs so I have big red blocks on the back of my legs. Less expensive tickets are nice but they are a muut point when you end up paying more in the long run."

Cons: "Pricing of carry ons a rip off."

Cons: "Seat comfort and space could be improved."

Cons: "All was good. Nice easy trip!"

Cons: "Free non-alcoholic beverages at least."

Cons: "Lost luggage. Terrible customer support. Never flying frontier again."

Pros: "They made me feel like it was safe to fall asleep"

Pros: "Another set of employees rebooked us to a near city right away at no charge."
Cons: "How they closed the door to the Jet way when I was 5-8 steps away and would not open it when I knocked. To be clear, I'm not speaking of the door to the plane, just the jetway. We were kindly and quickly rerouted from Milwaukee to Chicago and told to go to Milwaukee to pick up your luggage as soon as we arrive in Chicago. When we attempted to pick up our luggage there was no one from Frontier at the airport, no one. When I called Frontier they told me toy return the next day. We returned the next morning and again no one was there. After two hours of waiting airport operations had to open the door for me to get my luggage. At the very least, they could ask a neighboring airline permission to access Frontier's baggage storage."

Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Prompt departure. Arrived 15 minutes early."

Pros: "Over all a great value.Even with the cost of luggage."

Pros: "Quick & cheap"
Cons: "No Wi-Fi c'mon guys"

Pros: "Still waiting in the Denver airport. Haven't boarded yet"

Pros: "The seats on the plane were so thin and uncomfortable I believe they comprised only of metal and synthetic leather with zero cushioning. If the seats recline, good luck finding out how to recline them. I was on two Frontier planes January 15th and 19th 2017 and never discovered out the answer to the magic needed to recline. Yes, I could have asked however, the flight attendant was as ornery as an alley cat who was only there for a pay check not customer service. I was unprepared, had I brought my own plate I could have had plenty of snacks from off the floor and from between the seats. Bummer for me."
Cons: "Flights left and arrived on time for once."

Pros: "Great Value...never mind a complimentary beverage, this was good value."

Pros: "Packed in like sardines and I am a small person"

Pros: "Nothing yet..."
Cons: "I got this survey meanwhile I'm still stuck at the airport and haven't departed... delays arriving to DEN and departing. Some weather related, some mismanagement from an operation standpoint."

Cons: "never notified of delay in departure"

Cons: "Loud drunk people taking selfies with their flash on while people are trying to sleep. Guy behind me laughing super loud and kicking my chair the entire 3+ hour flight."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "I had never flown Frontier and the online checkin process is confusing only worsened by their baggage policy which I still don't understand I may have paid too much."

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very small tight seating size"

Pros: "A health concern with the passenger was dealt with professionally and quickly"

Pros: "el viaje fue muy bien gracias"

Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."

Cons: "Give me a break"

Cons: "Boarding was not very courteous and customer friendly"

Cons: "$45 for carry on"

Cons: "no first class"

Pros: "Attention to detail. Outstanding miles membership program."
Cons: "Notta thing"

Cons: "My bags as well as my associates bags ( 13 people total) were not sent to our destination. Therefore we were at our work convention without our suits, and no running material for our company wide 5k . It was raining so I had soaking wet clothing and no change of clothes. All in all not very pleased with my experience."

Pros: "Seats were non-adjustable, which avoided getting into situation where person in front leans his seat all the way back."
