Pros: "Good movie selection"
Cons: "Always late to depart. Seating was cramped and uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Pros: "Just the crew was super sweet and amazing. Everything else sucks. My seat won't recline and the flights get delayed all the time. Worst was the state LaGuardia is in right now."

Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours"
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: "Information communicated about delays."
Cons: "- more communication (any!) about bag status when landed - flight delay due to too many/too heavy baggage. Long delay was said to be due to making sure our baggage would accompany destination. Upon arrival, bag was left in NYC but this wasn't communicated. No info on bag status at airport or via ema"
Cons: "The flight had over six hours in combined delays!!!"
Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"

Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."
Cons: "Flight Delayed > Pilot on Connecting Flight"

Cons: "The aircraft is too old, MD-88. I don't know how Delta is flying that type of aircraft. Is very risky"
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: "Another safe flight. Crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"
Cons: "Plane delayed 4 times for a total of 4 hours"
Pros: "The flight was probably only half booked, the crew was awesome, very attentive and accommodating. Legroom at seat 13A was plenty. Also the fact that messaging is free is convenient."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable flight. Seats are to close to each other"
Pros: "Once again, the people were friendly, but I did not really experience much since I went to sleep as soon as the plane took off. I did, however notice that the seats reclined a little more than normal (which was amazing for me). I had a comfortable flight and caught a great nap."
Pros: "I could be wrong, but the seats were very comfortable (for a plane) and I felt my knees weren't as close to the seat in front of me than other airlines. So that's a plus."

Cons: "On my first flight they forgot to turn the wifi on. I have unlim data but obviously can't use while in air; no big though."

Pros: "Good seats."
Pros: "Free drinks in Comfort+"
Cons: "See above description"
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: "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???"

Cons: "Our bags were lost going to Rome for a wedding and our cloths were in the bags for the brides father and sister bridesmade. No updates and the have my phone number and email address. You would think it was 1968 or something! Unacceptable in this day and age of communication! The wedding is in 48 hours and can’t find our bags? All this was explained to the airline in Rome the baggage handlers etc. etc. still nothing. Absolutely amazing and disappointing!"
Pros: "Everything was fine except..."
Cons: "The directions don’t work to connect to in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Left and arrived more or less on time. No major issues."
Cons: "Gates are way too far apart in Miami and the golf carts to get between areas seem to require reservations and long waits. Ridiculous. Most MIA staff was very rude (this wasn't American's own staff, or TSA, I should note). American stripped my group of our seat assignments (which we had selected 6 months prior) without reason and with minimal apology. No solution offered. Got middle seats but luckily was able to switch on one of the computer kiosks. Flight crew didn't seem to care that other people moved to the for-pay seats further up front (the flight wasn't full)... so why did we lose our seat assignments and get grief with not being able to select anything good? Not impressed."

Pros: "The fact we arrived safely"
Cons: "Long time to claim baggage, three hours delay, uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Airplane very uncomfortable!spacevery reduce to obtain more seating capacity they forgot customer comfort"

Cons: "Personnel; lack of customer service"
Pros: "I did have to speak with an attendant at the customer service area of checkin and she was great. Very helpful."
Pros: "This particular trip everything went as well as can be expected. I was upgraded to first on both legs, always a bonus. Crew was friendly and efficient. FYI, this was not AA crew and equipment, was the regional sub. But still, all good."
Cons: "I don't care for the shuttle from the main terminal to the remote. It's crowded and uncomfortable, even for a few minutes."
Cons: "Plane got cancelled. Missed my other flight. Spending $100 more that was unnecessary"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and caused me to miss another connecting flight to get to my destination, and now need to purchase new tickets."
Pros: "The spaciousness of the seating on AA is tops bar none"

Cons: "Overcrowded, but that's the same no matter where. Usual rude frequent fliers, who also usually take up all the overhead space."
Pros: "Getting off of that plane."
Cons: "I understand delays happen and are sometimes out of your control. However, customer service is something that you can, should, and must control. I witnessed a lack of self control of the American employees (including a Supervisor) and every point of my trip w/your customers. I was embarrassed for the American executive team."
Pros: "Much more legroom on this flight, even though it was a smaller aircraft."
Cons: "Gate agent seemed a bit overwhelmed. Helpful, but not overly friendly. In stark contrast to my earlier flight from Charlotte to Memphis, where the gentleman was extremely pleasant and cheerful."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to keep us updated about the flight delay"
Pros: "Free beverage"
Cons: "Was told I couldn't get on earlier flight because I hate checked a bag. That bag ended up on earlier flight and sat in Rochester for 5 hours. Was delayed due to "maintenance" and the inability to find flight attendant. Ended up changing gates and then forgotten for 45 minutes before manager asked someone if we were headed to Rochester. Once aboard second plane waited for another 45 minutes for fuel. Never flying American again.Was told I couldn't get on earlier flight because I hate checked a bag.

Never flying American again."
Pros: "once I made it on it was smooth"

Cons: "I don't really like the complimentary pretzels."
Pros: "I sat next to my wife"
Cons: "Paying extra for seating"
Cons: "I feel as though I should receive some kind of courtesy credit for the poor condition of the plane, friendliness of the staff, efficiency of the staff, and finally for being 3 hours late because failure to adequately fuel the plane. I was skipped for receiving refreshments, the plane had interior panels falling off. The second flight didn't have enough fuel for a 40 minute flight. The pilot told us that we were delayed for rain for 10 minutes but we did not have enough fuel to circle around. As a result we came back to Philadelphia. I missed a graduation party as a result. I had a poor experience. The flight attendants did not greet me on entrance or exit."
Pros: "A two hour ride on an airplane without having to drive."
Cons: "The seats are extremely uncomfortable on this pane."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that American Airlines cancelled my 17 Yr old neice's flight from Dallas to Denver over a thing called "timed-out". And had her sleep in a room with a cott instead of a hotel room. And the fact that we as customers pay good money for tickets only to be subject to the airlines way of business. It is absolutely unacceptable!"
Pros: "The flight was excellent and the price was right"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Wait 4 hours for a delay flight"
Pros: "Flight and flight crew were wonderful. No problems at all."
Cons: "Had to be rebooked, but was not told it was as a stand-by. I think this information is important to tell a customer. Was only told the next flight time out. Then when I received my bag back (was placed under plane upon boarding which was no problem), my handle was broken."
Pros: "I don't like my flight getting cancelled with me STILL at the airport stranded until tomorrow, sleeping on the floor!!"
Cons: "No accommodations, considerations nor apologies: poor service and just abandoned"
Pros: "Everything from boarding to offloading went smoothly and orderly."
Pros: "Nice flight and great service"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, even in first class. Food a joke for a 4 hour class. No pillows, even in first class."
Pros: "Stuartess provides free first class items like blankets and drinks."
Cons: "Social distancing was not practiced by using nearly 50 middle class seats left empty while the entire rear of the plane was jam packed in economy seating."
Cons: "Seat space is to small"
Pros: "The free in-flight entertainment was great. I appreciate it being free as it makes up for some of the other issues of not being able to sit next to fellow travelers on the low-fare"
Cons: "Did not like that on the low-fare I could not choose a seat next to my traveler. This made me ask the person next to my wife if they would like to switch, which they nicely did. But I imagine this asking of switching seats will probably create tension for your customers in the future. You might consider going back to the original model of sitting next to your fellow travelers."
Cons: "It took an hour and 20 minutes to get our bags from baggage claim which is ridiculous"
Cons: "Same as above same as above"
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "Leg room is non existent, overweight crew kept smashing into me literally every time they'd walk by"

Cons: "Seat space No food at all Internet too expensive"
Cons: "Wi-Fi wasn't available"
Pros: "Crew hospitality"
Cons: "Small knee room. Too much like Spirit Air. !!!"
Pros: "There was plenty of room because the flight was less than half full. There was a very friendly and helpful female flight attendant with an Asian ethnic background."
Cons: "It was impossible to check in online because I have a U.S. Green Card. Something should be done to fix this. It shouldn't be too difficult. There was a gray-haired male flight attendant who was extremely negative and unfriendly. Perhaps (I hope) he was really a security guard. But if he is going to serve people, he has to understand the concept of service."
Pros: "Not sure there was anything"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5.5 hours. Lost my luggage."
Cons: "Several mechanical failures caused a 7hr delay"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Wasn't offered a snack. Was in the BR whe they were handed out."

Cons: "Terminals were a bit far a part"
Pros: "Direct tv in united codeshare flt"
Pros: "The crew was great, the service impeccable, the boarding process fast"
Cons: "At least two different kind of snacks to choose from, will be much appreciated"
Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn't like everything. All my United flight were delayed, the international was cancelled after waiting for 7 hours of delays."
Pros: "It was nice"
Pros: "My other passengers in First Class. Your crew was also very kind and well mannered."
Cons: "I spent over 150 for an upgrade for a red eye for a flight I already spent over 500. Your crew lacked attention in service and one specific crew member (male) woke me up twice due to the loudness of his voice. Disappointed in the quality for the amount spent."
Pros: "Seats were comfy, and the snack (caramel-filled waffle cookie) was a nice little treat."
Cons: "I didn't know to download the United entertainment app in advance. Once I found out at boarding, it was too late."
Pros: "Uncrowded flight so there were lots of extra seats!"
Cons: "No food or snacks provided for free."
Pros: "Entertainment options were great, and the food was decent."
Cons: "The seat were really uncomfortable."
Pros: "Curtesy of staff"
Cons: "No seat reclining at all. Feeling very stiff by the end of the fight."
Pros: "The updates that were sent to me in e-mail."
Pros: "About as comfortable as a trans-pacific flight gets in economy class. Plenty of leg room, great entertainment choices, surprisingly good food - and plenty of it, by the time breakfast came around I was actually too full to eat it!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The plane was so damn HOT inside. Then we sat on the tarmac for 40mins, while being cramped inside with no word from the flight crew, on why we were not taking off. Worst and most uncomfortable flight in years for me and the rest of us suffering passengers on board.... Horrible Horrible Flight"
Cons: "My bags were tagged to Dakar but my final destination was Conakry. I was told my United that South African airlines doesn't have a "luggage contract" with ASky so my bags could not be tagged to my final destination. This is bizarre because Kayak didn't inform me of this when I bought my ticket otherwise I would never have bought that flight."
Cons: "Very rude crew."
Pros: "I liked temperature!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 3 times which led me to being 1.5 hours late to my meeting. We weren't told there was going to be a delay until we lined up to start boarding!"
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was pleasant and professional."
Cons: "Snack and drink selection was poor."
Cons: "My 3rd old was very hungry and I reached out to cabin staff for any kind of food for purchase, they turned me down saying I need to wait for another hour till the dinner time. Did not provide any help there."
Pros: "The plane was exceptionally nice,"
Cons: "Although I purchased my ticket more than four months prior, due to some complication or miscommunication between SAS and US Air, my seat had been filled and someone had to be "bought off the plane" with a voucher and better seat. If someone wouldn't have taken the offer, I would have missed all of my flight waiting on a new connection."
Cons: "-Was a United flight despite being billed as Lufthansa, I always try and avoid United as I have had bad experiences in the past. -Was unable to choose seats online. -Upon check in was told that only middle seats were available for my partner and I away from each other even though we showed up 6 hours early in order to get good seats as we couldn't check in online. -We then paid extra to get seats next to each other (250 bucks) and the entertainment systems in those seats were broken. -When we told the flight attendant staff they said there was nothing they could do and were rude. -When trying to explain the situation to United Customer service they were also rude."
Pros: "It was also 2 hours late."
Cons: "The crew was very rude and argued with me for not saying thank you to him after he gave me water. I had actually said Thank you but he didn't hear it. I don't mind saying it again."
Cons: "They gave me the last seat in the airplane"
Cons: "Almost two hours delay and lost of connection"
Cons: "Small glasses of water were offered very infrequently. Needed much much more"
Pros: "No delays, was actually 35 minutes early on my return flight, attendants were especially kind to me and helped me out significantly, and I was pleased with the free in-flight entertainment via the free Wifi. Overall, a Good experience with United."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Nothing throughout the arrival to landing except the actual flight crew was at an even decent level."
Cons: "After having flown to Austin for the death of my mother my return flight to DC was delayed for over 8 hours. There was minimal communication and no real understanding of what was happening by frontier. When asked about any sort of compensation the employees were extremely rude and difficult. After so many hours they’re required to give a 50 dollar voucher but failed to do so. After not sleeping for multiple nights due to my situation I did not arrive into DC till 1am and had to drive multiple hours home in the middle of the night which was a major safety hazard. Frontier did not offer to compensate a hotel or anything for the inconvenice. Extremely disappointed in the horrendous service provided by the airline in this nightmare scenario"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable."
Cons: "THE most uncomfortable seats ever!! The seat bottom has been reduced in size by half - the edge hits mid-thigh - and all cushioning has been removed - like sitting on a folding chair, but less comfortable! And the pricing: I paid as much to bring my luggage with me as I did for my "seat". And to top it off, it was a red-eye flight and the crew were yacking the whole time. I will NEVER fly frontier again."
Pros: "no free drinks or snacks, everything is an extra charge. no hospitality. the workers were helpful though but didn't smile much"
Cons: "Departure delay was too long on board"
Cons: "Crew service when serving paid drinks, mis-taken order"
Pros: "Liked that it was cheap and that it got me to my destination."
Cons: "The flight was significantly late (both of my Frontier flights were), the seats had no padding, the tray-tables were half-sized so that you couldn't put a laptop on them. I would not recommend Frontier to anyone unless they absolutely cannot afford another airline. There are affordable airlines that do cheap flights well. This is not one of them."
Pros: "I found the seats to be an acceptable level of comfort. I'm not a skinny person but I didn't feel any more squeezed in than on any other airline."
Cons: "There was a one hour delay on my flight out and the pilot apologized for this during his announcements. Ended up at my destination about 45 minutes later than scheduled but this did not cause any problems for me."
Pros: "There wasn't any in flight entertainment and I didn't order food, so that's why my rating is neutral. Our flight back was 30 min early, so that was great."
Cons: "The flight attendant complaining about it being a 9 hour day . Slouching Over seats seemed to be dreading the day."
Pros: "Cheap cost flight, but very misleading"
Cons: "Frontier nickels and dimes their passengers. They charge for seats, charges excessively for baggage (including carry-ones) and gouges for drinks"
Cons: "I wasn't happy to hear that Frontier charges for everything. I also hated that because I was 5 minutes late to checking in, because apparently after 45 minutes you aren't supposed to check in. So they charged me $40 for a carry on, that I couldn't even get checked in."
Pros: "First time and I was pleased to fly this carrier"
Pros: "It wasn't a bad flight, got me home on time."
Cons: "Seating is to close, seats don't recline. Person next to me coughed and gagged the whole trip. Now I'm sick."
Pros: "Great flight. On time. Cheap. Love it"
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."
Pros: "The crew and ticket price are the only positive things I can think of."
Cons: "You have to pay ridiculous prices for just about everything. If water wasn't necessary for basic survival they probably would've charged at least 1 dollar per ounce. You can't recline and leg room is scarce."
Pros: "On both fights I was surprised by the overbearing rudeness of the flight attendants. I turned around when I heard a loud female voice chastising someone only to find the attendant speaking to a customer. On my return flight, the pilot came in hot causing the wings to sway wildly when on the ground. The stewardess actually said, over the loudspeaker, "yehaw - we're back in Texas!!" This did not comfort me. Also, I travel alot. This was my first experience on Frontier for years. Not impressed with anything but the price."
Pros: "One of the worst landing I have ever experienced. The pilot pancaked the landing. Everything else went as expected. The seats were uncomfortable and small. The staff was super nice. Everything else went as expected."
Cons: "The whole process was bad... from checking in my bags to getting off the plane. The staff was somewhat rude, everything costs money, and the pilot flew like it was his first time."
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."
Pros: "Got me to where I was going"
Cons: "1 hour late"
Pros: "Cheap price. Comfortable seat (with upgraded price)"
Cons: "There was no snack or in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "You can't charge people for carry on. Cheapskate"
Pros: "The service from the employees were great. Their attitudes were superior. The flight went with no problems."
Pros: "The crew and accommodations were fine."
Cons: "Lost my bag and did not have a rep readily available. Also, when a rep was located, I had to fill out a form by hand since they do not track bags digitally?!? Over the next day, I was not called or updated on the bag. I had to call all day to get someone and they did not deliver it in a timely manner. Horrible experience."
Pros: "Price was great. The actual flight was typical for modern air travel. Crew was nice."
Cons: "I got to the airport about 2.5 hours before the flight. There was a sign at the Frontier check-in desk in Houston: "Check-in begins 2 hours before the flight." I was one of the first people in line. Exactly 2 hours before the flight, two check-in agents strolled out and started accepting baggage. By then, there was a very long line behind me of people waiting to check their bags. BE SURE TO READ BAGGAGE RULES! There are many different prices depending on when and where you check in your luggage. And there is a fee for carry-on luggage. Don't get caught at the gate with carry-on that is not already paid for or you will pay a very high price to pay it at that point. Even if you pay in advance, it costs MORE to carry on luggage than to check it. No free sodas or bottled water on the plane -- they cost $3 each. Only tap water is free. And all seats except middle seats were considered "premium" with an extra charge of $13 to $25."
Pros: "Initial price."
Cons: "$40.00 for a carry on!"
Cons: "Carry on bag fees, reserve seating fees, uncomfortable seats, loud airplane staff."
Pros: "Pricing and easiness"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "My return flight from Houston to SFO was scheduled to depart at 2:50 pm. I showed up at noon to check in, and had to wait an hour for Frontier personnel to show up to man the check-in desk. Two of the three automated kiosks were out of order, as well."
Pros: "food and entertainment were not spplicable- you might need to add that sd an option"
Pros: "Plane was clean and somewhat comfortable."
Cons: "Bate and switch Internet fares. Confusing baggage fees i.e The definition of carry on baggage. Confusing seating fees. Misleading prices. Web site times out before seating and baggage fees can be determined. I will be more careful comparing Frontier prices for future flights and will advise family and friends to do the same."
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable. Why use a 319 aircraft and not get comfortable seats that lean back at the very least?"
Pros: "Unprofessional boarding employees. Lack customer service."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "All ok."
Cons: "Nothing terrible terrible"
Cons: "No drinks, Can't recline seats."
Pros: "Nothing. The lady told me that I was too late to check into my flight and then the plane had a delay in so I did have enough time but she still wouldn't give me back my money or let me get on my flight"
Cons: "Everything. No one seem to want to help me and everybody was very rude. The lady gave me a phone number to call and told me sorry for my luck. I probably will never use frontier ever again and I will make sure that I let everybody else to not use them as well I just wanted my money back."
Pros: "Price, flight, Awesome!!!! Keep it up Frontier!!"
Cons: "That I can't always get that that price :)"
Pros: "The staff were friendly."
Cons: "I do not fly a lot but in my experience in comparison to Delta, US airways and American Airlines, these seats were more cramped and much less comfortable. They were solid plastic with little padding. I've never seen an airline charge for a carry on bag. This is extreme considering some airlines still find ways to check bags for free. Finally, I am very claustrophobic and can not risk being put in a middle seat. I also am not very comfortable with a window seat either. The fact that I had to pay $10+ each way to ensure comfort which I can choose for free on any other airline was frustrating. These three items will keep me from flying this airline again."
Pros: "Offer free drinks"
Cons: "Nothing free to drink"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Terrible service with lots of delays and was not taken care properly at all. Spent 28 hours in total to reach destination."
Pros: "Flight was smooth including takeoff and landing"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, had to pay for snacks. Four hours is too long without TV to offer."
Pros: "2 hour wait to drop off the bags. The counter was closed, No one there. The crew was rude, more so then usual. Every time I fly Frontier, which thank god is not very often, I promise not to do it again. A half a penny better then Spirit, which is a sad comparison"
Pros: "Friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "No wifi, charge for everything except water. Charge for carry on bag. Cheaper to check luggage. No efficiency towards customer service. Doubtful I'll ever fly frontier again."
Pros: "Traffic delayed me - showed up 40 minutes before the flight. All other airlines I've dealt with - this would be no problem. In the case of Frontier - staff had left the ticket counter!!! That's their actual policy to leave the ticket counter 45 minutes before the flight. No warning from Kayak on this, by the way. Several us in the same predicament had to stand around calling 800 numbers to see what to do. Finally, with all the calling - someone from Frontier shows up and says our only recourse is to fly the next day, at our expense!!! Adn pay an extra $100 fee on top of the ticket cost. There 40 minutes before the flight, and they won't give us a freaking boarding pass! I had to book a flight later that day on United at my expense."
Cons: "Total fiasco."
