Pros: "Delayed"
Read more about Delta
Pros: "Delayed"
Pros: "The crew went the extra mile to accomodate my bag due to not having a seat in front of me to stow it. Also, Delta Comfort was exceptional!"
Pros: "Very professional crew. Nice equipment. Very pleased."
Cons: "Terrible delays"
Cons: "We weren't alerted there was a chance of delays. Over two hours late."
Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "Cabin was way too hot despite complaining multiple times. Wi-Fi didn’t work the whole flight. The entertainment system was down. Seats uncomfortable. Inept crew. Worst flight I’ve ever taken."
Pros: "No food, late by hour"
Pros: "Excellent crew and clean aircraft"
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 20 mins because we were early..."
Pros: "The crew was communicative and courteous."
Cons: "There was a flight delay in LAX due to a maintenance issue. The captain and crew informed us before we boarded the plane which was excellent. However, they could not figure out what was wrong with the planed and delayed the boarding for another 3 hours, putting our 1900 departure time to 2100."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and communicated well. They also had a friendly attitude."
Cons: "A 1 hour wait for wheelchair assistance in Houston and then a 30 minute delay for wheelchair people to take my mom to baggage claim. Then the wheelchair attendant kept complaining she wouldn't receive a good tip to take us to the Lyft pickup area."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I came from a long trip from France, the seat I was assigned was not reclinable, close to the restroom. I was totally exhausted from the previous flight, not able to sleep at all and when I tried to stretch my legs by sitting sidewards on the aisle a crew member keep bothering me to keep my legs out"
Cons: "The flight had over six hours in combined delays!!!"
Pros: "Very comfortable, no complaints."
Cons: "No delays. And have the terminal bridge in working order"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, capt. had smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "Late gate change threw me for a loop. Had dinner with some friends in terminal before they caught a different flight. Walked to my gate only to find flight had changed to a different terminal and gate. Ended up fine because there was a delay with the lane switch, but made me a little anxious."
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Took off late. Other than that very comfortable and great experience"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the service on Delta. The entire process was better than what i've come to expect on airlines. My flight attendant was Kate, and she was awesome - super friendly, professional, thoughtful."
Pros: "It is a busy travel day and this flight was unbelievably smooth. The entire crew was competent and friendly."
Pros: "Overall service was great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."
Pros: "Having three seats."
Cons: "I had three seats to myself! After getting elbowed all the way from Amsterdam to Minneapolis, I was tired and I slept three good hours."
Pros: "Better than average entertainment system for domestic flights."
Cons: "Boarding done against logic: my seat was in the last 5 rows of the cabin and I was scheduled to board in the final group. When I got to my seat the first 30 rows were nearly fully, but the back of the plane was half empty. The whole time the gate agent was urging passengers to move faster through the aisle, but Delta should really rethink its boarding strategy. It shouldn't take 40 minutes to board a 757."
Cons: "Kayak a howed my gate as something that didn’t exist at the terminal. I went to a kayak help desk to have a ticket printed that showed my TSA precheck because it wasn’t showing on my mobile ticket, and no one was there to help. I waisted for 10 mins. It then took me nearly 2 hours to get through security. I asked if I could get through quicker and was told I could not, despite it being passed my boarding time. I then ran to my gate where I waited for another 10 mins (no one was there, again) and then an employee came out and said they couldn’t let anyone board once the door was shut. He then directed me to the delta help desk (there was at least 20 people behind me who missed their flight). I then had to pay an additional $75 to get a later flight. The whole experience was awful and I’m disappointed with Kayak and the gate confusion, but mostly Delta and the lack of customer service."
Cons: "Sat on the runway for over an hour to get the gate. Unacceptable."
Pros: "Everyone was very courteous, the plane took off on schedule and arrived at our destination early. Also got a complimentary upgrade to Comfort Plus."
Cons: "Ticket price was a bit much, the seats and aisle inside the plane are only made for skinny people. Aisle was barely longer across than my foot, and the guy next to me was a bit bigger than average, leaving me to have to scrunch in my seat the whole flight. Lots of elbows, butts and hips knocking into my shoulders as people boarded."
Pros: "The staff & crew were friendly. I liked having access to free entertainment. I liked being able to see the tracking of my checked bag (notifications)."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Take a long time to taxi to the gate & getting off the plane."
Pros: "Everything was great, easy boarding, great idea (board ahead of your zone if you check bag free at gate), courteous staff, good food choices, arrived ahead of schedule, good movies."
Pros: "Personality and charm of the flight attendants made it an especially relaxing trip."
Pros: "Fast boarding and complimentary snacks."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large woman who came over the arm rest onto my seat."
Pros: "How they take off and land"
Cons: "The price versus other companies"
Pros: "The movie selection is very good"
Cons: "Both boarding the flight and getting off the flight were severely delayed. The flight attendants also seemed to ignore half the plane when handing out drinks and when picking up trash. I had to flag someone down after they had simply walked past my row both times."
Pros: "Being on time."
Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"
Pros: "We were not happy with our flight my flight got cancelled 3 times I miss work they need to reimburse us and also reimburses the hotel cuz we had to stay at a hotel because they cancelled our flight three times and then our flight that we went out on Monday was late because of a flight attendant arriving late to the hotel to the airport"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable flight. Seats are to close to each other"
Pros: "I didn't get a chance to get the gentleman's name at the gate, but he was able to get me on the earlier flight (since I had NO luggage and only 1 carry on that fit under my seat) and didn't charge me the stupid fee for filling a seat that was empty when I was giving up a seat on a later flight that would accommodate those who missed this earlier flight. Nice to see kindness in an industry that seizes fees on every opportunity."
Pros: "It got me to SFO earlyish"
Cons: "Was told to go away and wait for name to appear on screen for seat assignment. Was seated apart from travel companion. Got to sit next to folks with questionable hygiene, seat broken. Seatbelt broken. Stuck in back of plane window seat and was supposed to be “happy”. I was brilliantly ignored by crew. Seat back entertainment broken snd flight crew never answered the call button. Got to watch bag handlers throw and drop luggage like true gorillas. Delta, this time you truely are the worst. Wont book you again."
Pros: "We'd paid extra for main cabin so hot to choose seats and got in flight entertainment.. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "No free wifi."
Pros: "Very nice and friendly crew were very efficient."
Cons: "Very nice and friendly crew were very efficient. Unfortunately, we had to wait over 20 minutes to get into our gate because another plane was there, so we arrived late. Not DELTA's fault."
Pros: "The crew on Delta create a welcome atmosphere every time I have flown with them."
Pros: "The entertainment options and noticing the little touches that Delta is making to improve the brand and experience."
Cons: "Seems like there are legacy "attitude" issues with the crew. I sat on the aisle yesterday, and SEVERAL times I was bumped, quite rudely, by passing crew. In one instance, as they passed to pick up trash, they took two of my three items. They started walking on, and I tapped them as they passed to pick up the third. She brusquely turned and said: don't touch me to get my attention. No please; quite rude, and unnecessary."
Pros: "The boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Three hour departure delay. No explanation given. No apology."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for very 4 hrs sat in plane for 2.5 of those. Flight was delayed dye to strike in Barcelona. But replacement plane had fueling problems delaying the flight another 2 hours"
Cons: "Zero communication to the passengers as to why we were delayed for almost an hour sitting on the plane"
Pros: "They arrived on schedule."
Cons: "Seated in the rear middle seat. I had no options to select a seat when I checked in or made my reservation that wasn't an extra charge. I'mover 6' tall and middle seats are painful, especially cross country. Airlines need to be a little more attentive to their customers' needs. If a passenger is taller than average, and the flight is more than 60 minutes, provide comfortable seating at no extra charge. If a customer has a short layover, which their system knows about since it is the sourve of the flight plans, put the customer toward the front of the aircraft since these flights are habitually late and customers end up having to sprint through airports to try to make connections."
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Rocky takeoff"
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "Delta costumer service was terrible. Cancelled my trip twice. They lied to us saying that they were going to give vouchers for hotel, that we were going to be automatically booked for next flight and that our bags would arrive with our flight. Waited 7hs to talk to an agent in the airport. 24h wait in Atlanta had to sleep in airport. They wanted me to wait three days in atlanta. They forced me to check a carry on because they didn't have room in the plane. They told me my bag would arrive with my flight. It never did. I still dont have by only bag. Unbelievable."
Pros: "Decent food and drink. Flight attendants were very nice, although not quite as excellent as on the other Air France flights which I had on this trip"
Cons: "The seat is angled when fully reclined so there's a feeling that you'll slide off the seat, making it difficult to find a good position to sleep. Video screen seemed quite large. Headphones were noise canceling and worked well"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I don't get it.. why airlines have no pride? Tickets are expensive! Fuel is lately cheap.. a Don't get it.. why do they keep crying and act like poor helpless companies? You are connecting 2 major cities in the US... can you please have some pride and offer a Nice airplane and not a crappy old one? Can you have some service going beyond just a soda? It doesn't make sense! When you fly in Europe with any major airline company (not low cost..), no matter how long or short the flight is, minimum you get a sandwich and abundance of drinks.. not with Delta (or any other american airline company).. pontless. We always get treated like cattle.. but they like keeping the prices of tickets expensive, don't they???"

Crew was friendly, but airplane it’s not comfortable.

The best Airline United

Checking in was a breeze and the flight overall was pleasant.

Crew was great. Seats were great. Luggage drop off was a little confusing but was easier than waiting in a long line.

Most uncomfortable seat I've ever sat on in any airline, ever.

Cons: "expensive tickets"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Pros: "that I was finally able to go home"
Cons: "Customer service was very poor. The arline could've notified the connecting flight that we had landed and to wait on us. Instead, the connecting flight was scheduled to leave at 9:50. I arrived at the gate at 9:49 and the flight had already left. In addition, the reps did not show and form of empathy that we had missed the flight, of no fault of our own. When asked to provide transportation the connecting flight, the rep acted put out and stated we would have to wait (mind you, the next flight wasn't scheduled to board until 1:44pm). I was then told, the rep was going to lunch and I would have to flag down a ride. Lastly, a $10.00 voucher was nothing considering most airport meals are over $10.00."
Pros: "The crew were ok, but could have handled the situation different. It was upsetting how discrimination is still so active in this country and as "crew members" they should not have chosen sides"
Cons: "Watch videos on discrimination"
Pros: "Never made it."
Cons: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."
Pros: "Crew was accommodating."
Pros: "Spacious first class seating with full reclining bed."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "The greeting and smiles I received from the crew members as I was boarding. The plane had entertainment and alcoholic beverages."
Cons: "The only thing I can complain about is the weather causing the aircraft to shake"
Pros: "They let us off the plane to stretch and get food when we had to return to the gate for mechanical issue."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour late so we barely made our connection and certainly didn't get food which was our plan. They did not have room for any of our carry on as we were some of the last to board so they took it at the door of plane. . They managed to put our carry on on a flight to Beijing, not in the plane( that is mind boggling). The seats were uncomfortably tight. Our next flight on a smaller plane was roomier. No warning we needed to download the app to our device for entertainment as you had to pay for inseat tv."
Pros: "Departed / arrived on time, clean, good snack options."
Pros: "The crew was very kind, professional and accommodating."
Cons: "I paid extra so that we could have more leg room and be closer to the front of the plane yet upon embarking we were part of the last group to board. We sat in the first isle directly behind firstclass yet borded. virtually last. I was told by the flight attendant that because I purchased my airfare through Kayak as opposed to the airline was the reason behind this. I had no idea that this was the case and on top of spending the additional fee for upgrading, I was disappointed. I have a 0 star for entertainment because there was no N/A as a selection choice. There were no movies or entertainment aboard this aircraft."
Cons: "I had seats selected with my travel companion TOGETHER and when we boarded we were bumped to middle seats at the rear (the least desirable seat in the plane, separate from one another). I had select d seats when I purchased. The reassignment was not requested by me nor was it presented to me. I bought a specific seat and it was given to someone else. I am not happy with this."
Pros: "The crew was nice and did an excellent job."
Cons: "The seat was uncomfortable, cramped, and didn't really recline. Had to pay for food and tv/movie. No way to get comfortable on this flight."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and helpful with passengers boarding with luggage."
Cons: "There was an attractive female with brunette hair on this flight who was very rude to a Chinese lady passenger next to me."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight going to Ontario left before I even arrived"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing! It was there that I found out my plane was delayed and I would miss my baby’s ceremony. Things went downhill from there."
Cons: "The fact that I’d depart an entire day later. Was given a complimentary hotel but my luggage had already made it to Honolulu. No clothes and my medicine was in my luggage. I can’t explain the disappointment I feel simply because I know United Airlines doesn’t care about their customers. Like I’ve been told it’s corporate America and all that matters is the money. So sad because it’s the customers that have to suffer!"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I almost missed my connecting flight because the immigration lines, the baggage claim wait, then recheck of bag, then through security clearance took over an hour to do."
Pros: "We had an aisle each! The staff were friendly too."
Cons: "A slight delay"
Cons: "4 hr delay"
Pros: "Bags caught an earlier flight so the one usual complaint about delay in getting bags was actually positive. They got there before me."
Pros: "Ordered the Protein Box, it was ok.. crew members nice."
Cons: "The Smell on the flight was unacceptable, I was sitting about a couple rows across the middle bathroom, and it smelled horrible, I had never had an experience like this on any other flight, I fly United many times a year, and this had me really uncomfortable for almost 5 hours, since the flight was delayed almost 1.5 hours while we sat onboard the aircraft at the gate, that had me miss dinner plans too in San Francisco as well. I really hope they can fix that, For the good of the passengers, felt like I was going to be nauseous all the time, and I'm really not someone that complains or takes time to review badly."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable but small. The staff were nice."
Cons: "They didn't know where our luggage was. First we were told carousel #1 and then #6 and we had to keep going back and forth to try to find it. Finally they announced that they would bring the remaining pieces from carousel #1 to carousel #6. It should have been handled better. Also the flight was delayed several times."
Pros: "Polaris"
Pros: "Polaris"
Cons: "It is smaller"
Pros: "Good schedule, leaves at 6pm and arrives at 8pm. Many nonstop flights during the day to SFO."
Cons: "We sat on tarmac for over 40 minutes since construction at SFO was going to cause is delays. Ended up being delayed 30 minutes. The flight was completely full and I got a middle Economy seat. United Basic Economy is terrible, makes flying United honestly worse than Spirit."
Pros: "Even though our departure was delayed for about half and hour, we got to SF at a reasonable time."
Cons: "Seats too narrow. Not much for the added cost to Economy Plus. The deboarding of passengers from plane was very slow."
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "?"
Cons: "The worst cheesburger ever...you ran out of my first 3 choices"
Pros: "Fast arrival 30 minutes ahead of time, lots of space in exit row."
Cons: "My bag got gate checked bag even though I am pretty sure it would have fit."
Pros: "Finally! A happy staff!"
Pros: "Same as flight from Miami to Houston."
Pros: "Food was good and crew was very helpful. I loved that you can watch new release movies without having to pay extra."
Cons: "Wifi wast working for most of the flight."
Cons: "Air plane with mechanic problems and I buy firts class when they changed the fly don't give me the same class and can't take the refund"
Cons: "Delayed at arrival gate - Luggage did not make transfer to next flight"
Pros: "The crew was great at keeping us updated on timing for takeoff. I had a narrow window for a connecting flight and they announced this prior to landing for everyone who didn't need to hurry to stay seated, so that those of us with this connection could run to make it"
Cons: "First of all, it was a completely full flight. Crew were asking people to volunteer for another flight as well as asking people to check their carry on luggage because of the space limitations....United charges for carry on....they basically are ASKING for this problem. People Are now cramming what the can into a "carry on size" just to avoid paying these fees. And now while we're boarding people are strewn about the cabin trying to find a place for their bags. Now once everyone is boarded and sitting on a hot plane with no air circulation...they tell us maintenance is being done and we will be held up for another half hour. If this was known, why board everyone! Why not let us wait in the aircon airport in Houston and then board everyone. The leg room on this flight was by far the smallest I've seen. again, no mercy when asking for an exit row or a seat with a little more leg room because it "costs extra". Not being able to DO anything about my height, I feel this is unfair!"
Cons: "Delayed boarding, no overhead room, change of gate.... Kayak informed me of gate change and delayed flight easily 30 minutes prior to board change in the airport"
Pros: "I loved how helpful and kind the staff was. There was an issue with seating and they sorted it out in a quick and professional manner."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable when sitting for long periods and the seatbelts could have been a little bigger."
Pros: "My flight from Houston to San Francisco was good. There was lots of leg space."
Cons: "Inconsistency of United over size baggage embargo."
Pros: "Delays."
Cons: "Delays. But sometime is better for segurity I understand."
Pros: "Also a very solid crew!"
Pros: "On time departure, smoother flight."
Cons: "No food was offered and no entertainment except with pay."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Rather than a new delay each hour and being stuck at the gate would rather just have a set delay time later in the future so you can make other arrangements in time."
Pros: "The crew saw me running to board and helped me and my daughter board the plane fast even though we got there late."
Cons: "The food and seats weren't great. The food was nasty for $10. The seats were uncomfortable due to we had a bigger man next to us who didn't allow any arm space at all and was uncomfortable the entire flight home."
Cons: "It was delayed by 3 hours or more. Was starving and exhausted by the time we arrived. It took 12 or more hours to get there. I will never fly with a connection. Lost a whole day."
Cons: "Cuatomer service front desk and we arrive earlier! Fast!"
Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Everything else: 1+ hr delay for boarding with Frontier employees at Houston gate insensitive to our worries;they didn't bother to let people know what is going on,time frame,etc; they were just killing the time and joking with each other When arriving on SFO, there were 2 or 3 plains ahead of us at the gate,plane full with infants crying at that late hour trapped on the plane,crew not kind or thoughtful to go around give some hot tea or water or,or..nothing. BTW, only something like 2oz of water is complimentary,a lousy cup of coffee or tea is $2.99 ! Luggage was another stroke causing situation when in top of the history of this flight,the belt bringing the luggage to the baggage claim area...broke and luggage had to be loaded manually..We all learned about the cause of the delay after about 45-50 min of just waiting ,abandoned,with nobody to tell us what is going on.!"
Pros: "Got to my destination"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "I have a small bag on the plan n they charge me 60 dolllar for that it not fair"
Cons: "They don't have a good service"
Pros: "Frontier is very affordable when compared to other airlines."
Cons: "They nickle and dime you for every little thing. Airlines in general are not very accommodating when it comes to people like me who are above average in height. Frontier fails at this more so than others because they expect 50 dollars from me so I can get a seat that I'd be comfortable in. I could understand the upcharge if I were of average height and I just wanted a little bit of extra leg room. However that is not the case and I was stuck in a seat clearly not made with men and women who are above average height in mind. Even with my back all the way up against my seat, my knees were still pressed against the seat in front of me on a 4 hour flight."
Cons: "Prices are misleading because they don't inform customer that you have to pay for a carry on."
Pros: "Aisle seat"
Cons: "Having to pay for carry-on AND checked bags Horrible website experience - couldn't complete transaction And the staff is even worse - neglected to give me my baggage tags and give my credit card back"
Cons: "The seats are barely glorified lawn chairs, and the crew was extremely insensitive to the fact that the flight took off over 5 hours late and while most people were trying to sleep, they were loud, kept the lights on and were uapologetic that the flight was so ridiculously late. There were children and infants on that flight with exhausted parents who had to take off at 2am instead of 8:50pm. It was awful. Plus you have to pay for a carry on? Ridiculous. I never want to fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Crew was okay although one flight attendant was rude for the entire flight"
Cons: "1) Flight Delayed 5 hours turning a quick evening trip into an unintended red eye 2) When I boarded the plane, it was gross. Floors had not been cleaned one bit"
Cons: "Old uncomfortable seats. 4 hour flight with no tv. Flight was delayed with no explanation why."
Pros: "Nice staff, just oblivious to everyone sleeping at 2am while they carried on and on with their chatty gossip."
Cons: "Baggage took almost an hour to arrive on both legs of my trip. We were delayed in SFO but due to a long planned maintenance there. Airline could have prepared better. No early boarding with my two year old, but only after all the elite and a whole zone 1 of people. Seats have big gaps that allow things to fall and people sneezing on you from behind. Loud crew with obnoxious lights on during a very delayed flight that became a red eye. Why pay more for seats near the loud crew who doesn't take in the fact that we're all tired. You want to sell food? Choose better items. My $3.99 coffee could at least have more than a powder non-dairy creamer. Flight price is so deceiving when you charge for everything on top of it, including where I sit. Lame, awful, corporate money grubbing mentality. I'll stick with southwest (I later learned they had had fewer options for once because they actually considered that a runway was closed)."
Pros: "the flight was good"
Cons: "The sitting is too tight"
Cons: "DELAY"
Cons: "Basically everything. Cramped, smelly, old, not even free water."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I didnt like the fact that I couldn't talk to someone here in the United states for frontier. I didn't like that when I called customer service I was instructed to do the wrong thing and fill out the wrong form. And most of all I really hated that my flight was cancelled and my money put into a "shell credit" and when I went to re book the fight it cost 3 times the amount than I originally paid. Overall this has been a horrible experience and I will be tell everyone I know and even people I don't know via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and snap chat about my experience . Overall I feel your service and your service provider failed miserably."
Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Fee for carry on bag. Fee to choose seat. Total fees doubled base rate ($200 to $400). Only most expensive seats recline. Did not participate in TSA Pre-check (they started a couple days before my flight but the website was not updated to tell you this nor to let you enter your KTN. If you read the website it would tell you they did not participate. If you call a live person can add your KTN to your reservation."
Pros: "Allways on time."
Pros: "Non"
Cons: "Boarding process- need better communication Don't have hidden fees such as carry on bag and for seats Have planes that have seats the can move back and bigger tables"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Baggage came out on carousel promptly."
Cons: "Flight attendants were rude and condescending, not typically what I've found when flying frontier. I'm not sure if they were having a bad day or what, but all three needed a serious attitude adjustment. The flight was delayed but no details as to why it was delayed were given which would be helpful. There is no entertainment on frontiers flights and there is no option to purchase wifi to make the journey more comfortable."
Pros: "I first thought the price is good.. then I got to pay nickles and dime for the seat, carry on, check in, soda, coffee..."
Cons: "appeared to have someone spit or sneeze over the seat, the tray, sides of the back seat then touching the light or air knob.... all were having smeared stuff and very dirty. there were old used napkins left in the seat pockets. the floors were like never been vacuumed. We would not travel with Frontier again. Mike"
Pros: "The ticket price was good and for once I enjoyed the boarding process. Everyone was civil and boarded when their zone was called. Also, I had space in the overhead bin for my small carry on - that was a plus."
Cons: "Seats did not recline. For long flights a little creature comfort would be nice."
Pros: "The crew and neatness"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "The crew were very nice."
Cons: "Crew service when serving paid drinks, mis-taken order"
Pros: "Landing at destination and deplaning."
Cons: "Won't fly frontier again unless absolutely no other option. Long line at check in with only one person at desk. Seats are like hard plastic and nearly took out my back. Zero legroom. Spent most of the flight standing in the back by the restroom."
Pros: "The cabin staff was functional, the cockpit crew did all they could to make up for late departures and petty collection of bag fees."
Cons: "If you don't upgrade and pay more of every aspect of the flight, you might as well take Grayhound. The standard coach seats might as well be park benches with no leg room. I normally don't worry because I don't take things to shove under the seat in front of me, but the standard coach rows are so narrow a normal male can't bend his legs to extend into the space. I finally had to resort to pretend I was getting into a kayak or sports car for the five hour flight. There is nothing free, even soft drinks are $2.00."
Pros: "Flights were on time and were boarded quite promptly."
Cons: "You have to pay for every add on like carry on/checked bags and seat assignments."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, newer plane, airy feel to cabin."
Cons: "Baggage policy is by far the most cryptic & restrictive of any national carrier... And ever heard of paying to reserve a seat?"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Airport gave wrong information, display showed gate A30 instead of the correct A11, mistake cannot just be attributed to airport but also to the airline for miscommunicating with the airport. Chairs were uncomfortable. But it was a cheap flight so understandable."
Pros: "Straight flight"
Cons: "No comfort on flight very rigid seat. No entertainment at all. No complimentry snack and soft drinks. Even luggage charges way high."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "- Seats are uncomfortable - My seat was dirty even after we waited for the plane to be cleaned - Seats can't recline - Tray table is a joke. Barely big enough to hold an iPhone - They charge you to pick a seat. If you want aisle or middle be prepared to pay. - They charge to bring bags on board - They charge for food - They charge for drinks, even soda or juice - They pretty much charge for everything - I will do everything I can to avoid this airline in the future"
Pros: "I picked this air like cause it was the cheapesr"
Cons: "The room, I upgraded $50 for a better seat that honestly wasn't any better. Then they charge you for everything. An assigned seat is money, a drink is money, checked in bag is money. So honestly when all is said and done you should go with a different airline."
Cons: "Worker at the gate was not friendly at all but crew on board was better. I had my 83 year old mother traveling with me & the cramped seating was a little too aggressive. After everyone boarded, they were still trying to sell some of the empty extra legroom seats and I feel at that point they could have sold them at a bargain. I hated to rate Entertainment a 2 but there wasn't any at all. Ive been flying Frontier for about 6 years and it's a shame they now charge for carryons and have been charging for seating for awhile. I'm sure I will fly frontier again in the near future but I feel that the extra charges took a lot away from the excitement of obtaining a good deal. The pilot seemed very competent and friendly."
Cons: "I was helping my mother - in - law check in and board - she needed wheel chair assistance. We were in line to drop off a bag that we had checked in online an hour before the flight. There were 5 people in the line with only 2 reps helping. Since I hadn't printed the boarding pass, I tried to print the pass at the self-help kiosks getting the message that I needed to see an agent. The cut-off for checked in baggage is 45 mins before the flight, however the reps were making no effort to expedite the service. In 15 mins they had helped 2 people making us the 3rd in line and the line had grown to an additional 5-6 people behind us. 45 mins before the flight they refused to take in any bags for checking - in. Since I was able to take the checked in bag with me, I asked that the agent print the boarding pass for my mother in law and call for wheel chair assistance. The agent called for wheel chair assistance but refused to print the boarding pass! The one thing that the ticketing / check in agent should be able to do is to print a boarding pass for a reservation that is fully paid. Because of this my mother in law had to miss her flight and we paid an additional $99 to get onto the next flight. I was so taken aback when the agent refused to print the boarding pass, that I did not even know how to convince her to do her job. This is probably the worst experience I have ever had with any airline!"
Pros: "Cheap fair"
Cons: "Delayed trip coming home , having to pay for luggage, no reclining seats."
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable. check in terminals went down."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Arrived early. Modern spiffy cabin, seats are molded on backs so a bit more room for passengers. I loved being able to add a tip on food bill, a way of expressing appreciation for the crew has been missing for too long."
Cons: "Seats don't recline! I think my back started to hurt because I couldn't change seat; standing up helped. There's no charge for carrying on personal items but I saw a family with personal size shopping bags that was shocked to learn that a carry on suitcase wasn't a personal item and woul cost $60 (can that be right?). I tried to help them and could see that their English wasn't too strong. They hadn't understood the clear written rules and were severely punished to the point of crying - they won't fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to SF weather. But it's the price gouging and lack of entertainment or wifi that really grinded my gears."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was only delayed by one hour...as opposed to the 4 hours it was delayed going from San Francisco to Houston!!"
Cons: "2/3 crew members seemed overly annoyed by simple requests like bringing a glass of water. No water was offered unless requested...poor service and even worse attitudes!!"
Pros: "The crew was exceptionally helpful on both segments."
Cons: "The seats were not comfy at all- no reclining whatsoever and had to prepay for every bag."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Waited through 3 hours of delays just to have flight cancelled! Frontier did nothing for their travelers! Reschedule flight 3 days later! No transfers to other carriers was offered!"
Pros: "Terrible customer service"
Cons: "The flight was canceled and changed to las vegas. And than I have to buy ticket from las vegad to san francisco again."
Pros: "The crew was fine."
Cons: "First, I was not made aware that checking a bag, selecting a seat, and carrying on a bag would each be extra charges on top of the ticket price. If I had known that, I would have used a different airline, because the prices were relatively similar after all of the added costs. Secondly, the actual plane ride was incredibly uncomfortable. The seats on these airplanes do not recline (which is frustrating for a 3.5 - 4 hour flight), drinks or snacks are not free, and most of the other passengers were rude and difficult. I would not recommend this airline for any flights longer than 1.5 hours."
Cons: "I had a prior international flight that landed at 5AM that morning. I hustled through customs to try to make this flight. I asked multiple TSA agents how worried I should be about making my Frontier flight and I was assured that I would have time to make it. After running through the A Terminal, I got to my gate and the doors were already closed and no agent was there. I feel let down by the TSA agents."
Cons: "Frontier has trained their staff and written their website to "threaten" passengers into buying extra's like bags, assigned seats ."if your bag doesn't fit we will charge you 120 at the gate", I cant' guarantee a refund" "you may not get a seat if you don't buy one online (they warn you three times on the website before you can complete online check in...we were "randomly assigned" 6 seats together for free by skipping the buy seats step and completing online check in). On frontier you can only take one personal item for free. carry on is $70 (35 one way) and checked bags are $60 (30 one way)...MORE at the airport. I also fault Kayak here, they don't compare apples to apples - united carry on bags are free.. I bought 5 checked bags (6 people flying), but we decided to just do a personal item in the end. Turns out you can only get bag refunds at the airport ticket office ..not online or by phone. The ticket agent said there was no guarantee we would get a refund, but she would put a note in our record. Hmmm....prepaid $300 for a service we didn't use and may not get refunded. Online check in tries to bully you into buying seats...you have to say no 3 times before they let you complete check in. That would have been another $120 for the 6 of us. The best for last. On the return flight home, we went to ticketing agent to get refund for return bags ( the outbound ticket agent would only put a note in our record for the outbound flight, so we had to stand in line again for the return flight). She told us there was a gate change and sent us to the international terminal (a different terminal than the rest of Frontier flights). She marked the new terminal on our tickets. We were at the gate for 45 minutes and realized there were only about 10 other passengers for our flight there. I tried to call frontier on the white airport phone. They just had a recording and told me to dial an 800 number. I was on hold for 20 minutes before i got a person who said he couldn't get me any information. The flight wasn't listed on the departures board in the international terminal we had been sent to, so finally we decided we'd better go to the original gate. We had to go to another termanial, go through security again, and found our flight boarding at the original gate. The woman who sent us to the wrong terminal was at original gate loading passengers, so she knew there had been a mistake. She said they had made two announcements. The trouble is, the announcements were not audible in the international terminal. I told her there were several other passengers at the wrong gate, one of whom was elderly and would need help making the flight, No apology, and when we continued to try to get help for the other passengers, they, told us to move away from the podium or they would call security!!! ARGH!"
Cons: "They offered cheap tickets to lure my friend in (she paid for my flight to her wedding as I just moved to another state and was strapped for cash) and only when I arrived at the ticket counter, did I find out that I had to shell out an additional 45 dollars FOR A CARRY-ON!! So, I had to pay 90 dollars, which I didn't have, AND pay for snacks and a beverage, because nothing was open at airport at the time of my flight. The flight crew was mediocre at best, as the flight attendants didn't bother to greet anyone except for the only man in a business suit. If you're going to nickel and dime people, I think it better to charge a little more for everyone's ticket, instead of slamming them with hidden costs. Overall, this experience left a bad taste in my mouth that even the 2 bucks a piece in-flight sodas couldn't wash away."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I had to pay for placing a carry on in the overhead compartment, when most airlines do not charge for that. Also, the price for a carry-on was more expensive than a check-in bag. Then our flight was delayed for 3 hours and the board at the airline still showed "On-Time". After we landed in San Francisco from Las Vegas, we were stuck on the tarmac for 45 min. and could not leave the plane. While waiting on the plane I was how your baggage handlers were literally throwing the passengers luggage because they failed to drive the cart closer to the conveyor belt (now I know why luggage looks discombobulated). When we were able to leave the plane(we were off loaded at the international airport), the flight attendant failed to announce that our luggage was moved to the domestic terminal. She only announced that our luggage was going to be at carousel #12. Both the international and domestic terminals have a carousel #12. All the passengers waited at carousel #12 in the international terminal for at least 15 mins. Then when we found out it was at the domestic terminal, we all had to walk about 1 mile. My overall first time experience with Frontier was absolutely horrible. The staff was very unhelpful and did not inform the passengers properly which cause the passengers more time at the airport and less time at their final destination. Terrible, terrible airline. I would never recommend this airline to anyone at all."
Pros: "easy and the crew was helpful. No frills but wasn't looking for any."
Cons: "You can't charge people for carry on. Cheapskate"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I got held up at TSA so long that they made me miss my plane. I spent ALL of my money on that ticket. Frontier employees were ALL gone from the airport, so I had to call. And since frontier didn't help AT ALL and said I had to purchase another ticket, i spent the rest of the day sleeping at the airport and waiting for a friend to pull through with lending me the money to get another ticket, which finally just happened."
