Cons: "The airport."
Pros: "The crew was attentive."

Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."
Cons: "The person next to me"

Cons: "Wi-Fi not working or hard to get to work. Flight was delayed by an hour and service was very rushed."
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: "The crew! You have great people working for you on these routes."
Cons: "This was an easy flight. Nothing bad."
Pros: "Being able to watch videos."

Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."

Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"
Pros: "The gate person was very accommodating"
Cons: "It was over 2hrs late due to mechanical problems. Seems to be the norm."
Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."
Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"
Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."

Cons: "Seating was tight"
Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"
Pros: "Personnel and crew handled the problem in a professional manner doing everything in their power to make the best of a bad situation. Another plane was provided within a reasonable time frame."

Cons: "No space."

Pros: "The crew was very competent and friendly."
Cons: "Insufficient seating area, no meal offered."
Pros: "When our flight was delayed by four hours they gave us snacks at the gate. No one offered to reschedule."
Cons: "The 45 minute wait in the Sky Priority lane to drop off baggage. The flight was delayed because of weather and then their scheduling system crashed. Had to wait for a pilot. When we finally boarded at 5 we got peanuts in first class. That was worth the mileage upgrade. Upon landing there was a 1/2 wait on the tarmac to get a gate. That same plane, upon taking off back to DTW blew a tire upon take-off, had to do an emergency landing and everyone had to spend the night in NOLA after being delayed all day."
Pros: "Quick flight time even though we left late."
Cons: "Needed larger plane. The passengers were smashed together in small seats."

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."
Cons: "Everything, especially an AA customer representative. Very rude, inconsiderate, and unprofessional."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight delayed due to lavatory door not closing. Then+0, 20 minutes of papaerwork. Followed by no one able to operate bridge when landed for 20 minutes."

Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat with complimentary drinks that I still got charged for."
Cons: "They lost and cant track my baggage. Very poor customer service."
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."
Cons: "How does a ground crew not know a plane is coming in late. How is there no one here for baggage. It's a joke."
Cons: "inadequate ventilation"
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"

Pros: "Seats were nice, service came pretty quickly considering the size of the plane, boarding went reasonably quick"
Cons: "Started boarding and didn't announce another delay till we're on the aircraft, sitting in the gate for an hour and a half. My audio jack was broken and regardless, it will still trying to charge me for everything even though i was force to be squashed between two people who are also frustrated about sitting doing nothing."
Pros: "Attendants are always friendly; always a peaceful travel event"
Pros: "Travel time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight. The charging stations come in between legs space and very uncomfortable they got to be re adjusted. Make sure these are taken care in upcoming flights."

Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "American advertised free TV and movies streamed to your device via a card placed in the seatback pocket and in the flight attendant's announcement. Although the card stated, "This Flight. Free Entertainment..." I was informed that there was, in fact, no such feature."
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: "Cabin was clean. Flight attendants were courteous."

Pros: "Smooth ride and friendly helpful airline atendents."
Cons: "Middle seat and one of the last ones on. Enough said"
Pros: "I made it safely to my destinations and in a timely manner."
Cons: "The lack of space to breathe. Being herded like cattle to our seats. The fact that in flight service BARELY made it to the back of the plane before we landed."
Pros: "The entertainment system. It was awesome. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing notable."
Pros: "Pilot was very communicative, which was great but plane was 1 hour late and we had a mechanical problem while taxing, pilots fixed it while still on the ground. Not their fault those planes are 35 years old, come on!"
Cons: "Stop flying MD80's, please! 35 year old planes!"
Pros: "The flight assistants were nice"
Cons: "The entire flight from Miami to New Orleans, the ac felt like the heater was on. I was sweating and felt nasty."

Cons: "Flight was delayed for 8 hours before ultimately being canceled."
Cons: "Worst airline ever"
Pros: "The plane was clean. The food and drink selection was fabulous, although we didn’t get any because the flight was short and turbulent but good to know for next time."
Cons: "Wish I could check in online and have boarding pass sent to phone or print out myself."
Pros: "Nothing, it still goes to prove that cheaper it’s always better."
Cons: "Let me put it this way. I WOULD NEVER SUGGEST THIS AIRLINE TO ANYONE, NOT EVEN IT THE FLIGHT WAS FREE"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant. I was sitting in row 3, which was great! But because the plane wasn’t full, many people who didn’t pay the extra $30 ahead of time to select seats were invited to move forward. Lucky for them, but kind of aggravating to me."
Cons: "I paid $75 extra to bring my pet onboard. I had to push her kennel under the seat, and she never made a peep. But babies are allowed to ride for free with their parents, and scream for most of the trip!"
Pros: "Literally nothing. Will not fly again."
Cons: "Completely disorganized. Took 30 minutes to check a bag. Nickel and dimed at every turn. Flight crew was borderline annoying. Was not a relaxing flight whatsoever. JUST BAD."
Cons: "Small table trays & uncomfortable seats. You get what you pay for."
Pros: "I can appreciate the smaller seat size for its efficient use of space."
Cons: "Why do you try to trick people into paying for seat selection by making actual purchase choices very unclear? Why do I have to call in and have a lengthy conversation with a person just so that I can add my KTN to my profile? Why did it take an hour for a technician to arrive to solve a computer problem? Why is flight delay information so slow to be communicated?"
Pros: "Great cheap flight, on time!! Will be using this more to visit my grandbabies in the Orlando area! :-)"
Cons: "Extra baggage fees.."
Cons: "The plane departed 45 minutes behind schedule. When we arrived, 20 people or so did not receive their luggage. Frontier representatives were nowhere to be found. Finally someone came and herded us upstairs, gave us no information about our luggage, and had us form a line to file a claim. Frontier staff was utterly unapologetic and had no sense of urgency. I still don't know where my bag is. The plane was supposed to land at 12:45, and I left the airport at 3:30 and missed an important work meeting."
Pros: "The staff and pilots were great!"
Cons: "The seat I spent extra for."
Cons: "I didn't know Carry on bags had a fee until I got to the airport"
Pros: "The friendliness of the flight attendants, as well as the help I received at the check-In desk."
Cons: "The comfort of the seats, I'm 6-4" the room available is tiny for me."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Size of seats"
Cons: "The flight attendants said I was on the plane when I in fact was not and they gave my seat away to someone (had the person act like they were me) now I am stuck in Philly for 2 days"
Pros: "On first off first"
Cons: "Too small of a plane and was charged for my one and only carry on bag which was to standard size"
Pros: "I can tell you what I didn't like. My seat and bags cost more than the flight itself. So no I did not have a good experience and I will never fly Spirit again"
Pros: "They give you free water on the plane. That's it..."
Cons: "First off, our flight was delayed 5 hours. I understand because of weather. No big deal. But when it is supposed to leave at 4:15 and You tell everyone 5:15, and then at 5:15 tell everyone it'll be here at 6:15, then at 6:15 it went to 7:15 and then again 8:15. During this entire time, I kept asking for updates and the staff at Frontier seemed angry so many people kept asking....that's your job. Because of the long wait many people didn't eat dinner, JetBlu decided to get coffee and donuts for all of their passengers (they said it over the loud speaker), Frontier didn't give us anything. When the plane landed at 8:15, the slowness of the workers couldn't have been any worse. Loading the bags slow, cleaning the plane slow. Plane gets here at 8:15 and we don't take off until 9:30. You'd think we would get some type of snack or drink for this horrible wait time right? Water is free on frontier, but nothing else. And they stuck with that. NOTHING FREE! Not even a soda or bag of chips! My friend is 6 foot 4 and I'm not sure how they get away with the nonexistent leg room. His knees were smashed against the chair in front of him the entire time. Funny for me, sucked for him (or anyone tall). He asked to change seats to 1 of the 2 open seats we had seen with more leg room (near the side emergency exit). They said no unless he wants to pay $50 right there. In the middle of the flight. I have no words for it. Customer service was horrible, food was nonexistent, drinks were nonexistent, leg room was nonexistent. And that sums up how I'll never be using frontier ever again. Pay $50 more for a better plane service seriously."
Pros: "Caring crew! The flight was on time and we even arrived slotted early"
Cons: "We were not offered a free cup of water. Even though it was a short flight it would have been appreciated"
Pros: "I liked the price and the direct flight"
Cons: "The non-reclining seat, the charge for non-alcoholic drinks, the screaming kids kicking my seat"
Cons: "Plane was an hour late . All if the extra fees made me decide to not travel on Frontier again"
Pros: "I like the fact that we finally arrived ..that's the only thing positive I can think of"
Cons: "We were delayed three hours coming and going and no one had a clue wha was going on ..when we did board the crew was extremely short and acted irritated to be there"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and humorous"
Cons: "Flight attendants made too many unnecessary reminders throughout the flight about buckling seat belts and staying seated when the seatbelt sign is illuminated. It felt like every 5 minutes they were making an announcement making it impossible to get any rest. Passengers were roundly and acted like they had never been on a plane before. Maybe they hadn't and just didn't know any better. But it made the flight unpleasant."
Pros: "The non stop flight was awesome. Just a hour and a half and I was there Also the price was second to none."
Cons: "I don't have anything to complain about. I'm always going to look at Frontiers flight before booking. Wish they flew to more places"
Cons: "the pilot almost crashed the plane"
Pros: "Crew and the general process"
Cons: "Mostly the fact that we had to pay extra to check in!!!!!! Ridiculous! I was trying to check in using the Frontier App on my phone and I had to enter my credit card information. Then we had to pay for seltzer water??!!! Your tray tables are a joke (WAY TOO SMALL). Seats are not very comfortable"
Cons: "You have to pay extra for your seat - if you want to sit with your party and not be scattered all over the plane. You have to pay for your carry on and you have to of course pay for your checked bag. So everything you saved on the cost of the flight is eaten up with the extras."
Cons: "Late flight, disorganized at gate"
Cons: "Even had to pay for ONE carry on. Ridiculous. Everything was a charge, even selecting a spot to sit. Not what I expected."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Cost of the flight - efficient boarding - delightful crew - on time, even early - convenient time of flight"
Cons: "Cost of baggage fee - the fact that even a soft drink cost money - cost of a regular economy seat"
Cons: "183$ in seating and luggage fees AFTER the base ticket price...I wasn't made aware of these charges until I went to check in for my flight. No leg room. Seats don't recline. Tray table about the size of an iPhone 6. No entertainment. No snacks. All drinks cost money. Rude staff. Just a disaster of an experience. I'll never fly frontier again."
Pros: "The Denver people who helped"
Cons: "My brand new suitcase was broken after paying for it to be checked. My clothes and bath bag was on the pick up alone. When it was in my bag. Had to ask for tape to keep it somewhat closed to the rode and hotel. Still no email from frontier !"
Pros: "Flight crew was very pleasant both ways, but didn't make the trip worth it with all the negatives."
Cons: "Frontier's electronic tickets don't work at security. The added fees were ridiculous. Paying for a SEAT and a CARRY-ON is outlandish! They even charge for water. Seriously? The new seats are extremely uncomfortable, the armrests are cold metal, and the seats don't recline. They tray tables are about the size of a small romance novel. We felt incredibly duped. I will gladly pay more to fly an alternate airline. I hope to never fly this airline again."
Pros: "A mediocre experience that charged me for every interaction with the airline, including a can of club soda. An obnoxious business model."
Pros: "Great fare.awesome staff.had to wait to load bags.but will fly again"
Cons: "That they did not have enough people to process all the flights " we didn't expect all of you to show up" Allowed four other flights to cut in line to make their flight but when it came to new Orleans had 100 of us not board. 4 hours later, 5 lines and lying to us about the plane turning around They Told us the next flight was 4 days later... not even connections options. At first they did not want to give us refunds either until they called security on one irate small blonde lady and security, afraid of a riot I think, told the airline they needed to resolve the issue."
Cons: "I did not like the rude service i was given... the flight attendees were extremely rude and one of them forgot to give me back my credit card and he couldn't find it initially."
Pros: "On time bag claim fast comfortable seat for short flight"
Cons: "Baggage drop off line at 5am ridiculous"
Pros: "We never made it to New Orleans because there was an unbelievable number of people trying to check in and the usual number of people checking in to the point that the check in line was over 2 hours long. This is completely unacceptable that Frontier wouldn't be staffed enough to meet the needs of the people who are paying for flights."
Cons: "We never made it to New Orleans because there was an unbelievable number of people trying to check in and the usual number of people checking in to the point that the check in line was over 2 hours long. This is completely unacceptable that Frontier wouldn't be staffed enough to meet the needs of the people who are paying for flights."
Cons: "Flight was delayed three hours with no compensation for time. It would've been nice to receive a voucher for dinner considering time. Also, attempting to sleep on a flight is always difficult but turning on the lights to serve beverages was a bit much. Dim lighting would be a better option."
Cons: "I say the exact same "I should have just flown delta" story EVERY TIME I go with a cheap airline. Flight was delayed from 5pm to 6pm, then to 11:30pm, then 1:30am. So I had to buy a stupid expensive last minute ticket on Delta (Frontier doesn't work with other airlines, to rebook flights or even find your luggage) then drive two hours from the airport to see my family for the holidays.. Then take a 2 hour trip back to the airport the next day to pick up my luggage, which Frontier wouldn't deliver to me because I "voluntarily separated" from them. I suppose that's technically true, but I think there's an argument there that Frontier's complete lack of competency forced to me do it."
Pros: "I knew of the baggage policies so check in was easy and smooth. Other people seemed to have trouble with it so maybe baggage policies should be more advertised. Overall, great and comfortable experience for me."
Cons: "They didn't have paperwork done and we were sitting on the runway for over an hour waiting."
Pros: "boarding fine flight good"
Cons: "have to buy food on board , and only snacks available to buy, sandwiches would be better."
Cons: "Delays costed me tons of cash!"
Pros: "Best priced flights of anyone"
Cons: "SW airlines does do a better job wit incentives like first 2 bags free under 50lbs., complimentary drink & snack, and no charge for first carry-on. I'd honestly make Frontier my ONLY carrier if they addressed the first bag free, no carry-on fee and free water/drink & snack."
Cons: "If you think you'll be saving money by booking through frontier, think again. They charge you extra in every way they possibly can--including seat arrangements and carry-on bags that end up being even more expensive than checked bags. They tell you everything is cheaper when being set up through their website, but their site crashes like crazy and people on the phone are also very unhelpful. Our flight was delayed for 3 hours and the maintenance crew was very unhelpful in relaying information to the crew. We never got a perfectly clear answer on what the actual problem was."
Pros: "People were friendly."
Cons: "Charging for all of these things that should be free is ridiculous. I don't want to ever again fly Frontier."
Pros: "Process was easy"
Cons: "Having to pay for a carry on bag, my seat, beverages, and snacks!"
