Cons: "Boarding is slow and awkward, with too many passengers with carryons that don't fit. AA did not enforce size restriction on carryon bags, nor help maximize bin space.

On that trip I did a review and gave the whole trip a 1 out of 5 stars. That trip was the trip from hell, with delays, waiting on the Tarmac, deplaning, almost cancelled, more waiting on the Tarmac, wheels up in Reagan, wheels down in ORD, and then more Tarmac waiting for a gate. So I was already more than perturbed when this trip had similar outcomes."

Pros: "Punctual departure, arrival ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The man in front of me thought it was obvious that he should enjoy 130% space, leaving me with 70%. I couldn't even read my magazine. I've paid full price for my seat. Slow service. Half an hour wait for baggage claim."

Cons: "Departure was delayed for five hours. Gate changes 4 different times to opposite sides of the terminal. Weren't told honest reason of the delay until two hours in. They boarded half of the plane and stopped when the pilots radioed in that there was a severe hydraulic fluid leak. Updates were supposed to happen every thirty minutes but more than three times they were longer than thirty minute intervals and at one point more than ninety minutes without an update. The representatives at the Chicago gate told us we were all set then the rest of the passengers boarded the plane. The pilot said they were waiting on maintenance paperwork to print off but then we waited an extra hour at the gate on board while we could still hear very loud tests of the hydraulic system. Once we finally left the gate and headed out on the runway for takeoff we stopped just before takeoff and the pilot said we were waiting on PAPERWORK AGAIN! This was another 30 minute delay and we finally took off. We were supposed to arrive home at 10:00pm and instead arrived at 3:00am..."

Cons: "Hard seat"
Pros: "Straightforward and down to business."
Cons: "Give us all a free beverage, please!"
Cons: "I was charged an extra $45 dollars from Denver to DC for my hand luggage. I had previously checked in another luggage from Vegas at the same cost. This meant i had to pay a total of $90 plus the travel cost, which was very unfortunate and very costly. Such communication of anticipated cost on hand luggage was not shared prior to the trip. This was very disappointing and clearly made my entire trip very frustrating. I would not consider using the services ever again."

Cons: "Same screaming infants. They were able to sleep but allowed to roam aisles."
Pros: "cheap ticket"
Cons: "- Trays were about 10 inches wide and 5 inches deep - which provides no value whatsoever. You can't place anything on it b/c it's not big enough. - Chairs were short so I had nothing to rest my head on. - Cramped isle space"
Pros: "They gave us a $10 voucher to use in IAD while we waited...for 6.5 hours."
Cons: "The delay seemed like it could have been prevented with a better computer system; we paid for our bags ahead and others didn't have to pay when we checked in because the system was down, no offer for a refund on that."
Cons: "Lost luggage and delayed takeoff"
Cons: "Communication at the gate was poor. As well as the communication on board the plane."
Cons: "Let people know about their carry on luggage charges!"
Pros: "Everyone was nice once we were on board"
Cons: "Our well-working plane was clearly given to another group, and all we were told was that we had a gate change that then turned into a 2h delay for mechanical problems. If you're giving the broken plane to us because the other passengers have a connection and we don't, say that, don't just act like nothing changed. Also, it's been a while since I rode Frontier and I really disliked the dinky trays and poorly arranged under-seat storage."

Cons: "delayed 1.5 hours. little information. no apology. no explanation."
Cons: "Seat was awful even though I paid for an aisle."
Pros: "not much You pay for everthing incuding water, its like being nickled and dimed at every turn."
Cons: "3hour delay."
Pros: "It felt very simple and non complex, unlike other airlines where they make the process of traveling a long and tumultuous process. Bravo Frontier!"
Cons: "There was a Lady checking in people at the gate who had questioned many customers of whether their carry-on would fit, it seemed to bother many guests because they didn't want to be charged extra."
