Cons: "Window shades were cheap plastic and jammed up or down, felt like the plane details were not cared about"
Pros: "Good leg room. Not full flight."
Pros: "Not the friendliest airline but great value for the money!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 hour."
Pros: "Late due to weather. Southwest is offering free TV to your phone or computer now. It’s still pretty crowded on there but probably less so than a commuter jet. Limited tp pretzels for a snack."
Pros: "Being able to change tickets and onlly pay the difference"
Cons: "plane normally pretty full and extra tight when heavier person next to me"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and accommodating with the short flight. They were also efficient in getting everyone on the plane."
Cons: "When a plane is on time but waiting for another plane to leave the gate that is late. As to not delay the next flight you may want to change Gates of that on time flight. Flight was also uncomfortably warm."
Pros: "Flight attendants made me laugh, specially the one with the mike made the boarding time very pleasant. Another was very helpful and patient with my wife who wanted to connect to southwest online in the middle of the trip."
Pros: "The kind staff who quickly helped me rebook my flight after I missed my original departure."
Cons: "The unforeseen mechanical problems that delayed the flight."
Cons: "Stewardesses were not friendly. I had to request several times juice to drink as they missed serving my row and the one in front of me."
Pros: "Arrived on time, overall a smooth flight"
Cons: "I don’t like the boarding process."
Pros: "Flight attendants are always nice."
Cons: "I was in a group of 4 with boarding positions A2 through A5. We couldn't all get exit row, which is important to my husband who is over 6' tall, in spite of this which I find totally obnoxious. This was due to a woman who boarded outside of her group (she was C!), who boarded with her friend who had A1, and saved a seat for her daughter. The Southwest system is completely unfair unless two things happen: 1) people are not allowed to board outside their group and 2) IMPORTANTLY NO RESERVING seats. We have noticed that the trend seems to be pay for one person in a party to have early bird, and then reserve a seat. This is shitty."
Pros: "The flight and crew were very good. Arrived ahead of scheduled time"
Cons: "There was a delay in departure"
Pros: "Our flight was on time."
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "I didn't have a note from my daughter's mother saying I could travel alone with her. I was delayed 24 hours. I really wish this was something SW would address in the booking process when they can see that 1 adult is traveling with a minor. The agents in Houston took zero responsibility, demeaned me in front of my daughter for not know that rule, and never apologized."
Pros: "The Crew went above and beyond as usual."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "A/c was not working. Pretty dang hot."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Variety of snack selection."
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Pros: "apple juice for the kids"
Cons: "on a clear day from SFO, was delayed about 90 min. They said we're down to one runway with in and out flights."
Pros: "Lots of empty seats on the flight so more comfortable than most. Friendly communicative crew. Was very relieved to be on this flight out of Houston just before the hurricane hit-- thank you for not canceling it!"
Cons: "Everybody hates peanuts. Please consider providing outlets at the seats so we can charge our devices, and little tvs on the backs of the seats. As-is, $8 for internet on a short flight is dumb and my phone can't last very long playing media anyways."
Pros: "Nothing. Canceled"
Cons: "Surprised yow didnt know that flight was canceled"
Pros: "Flight needed to wait on a few people. Got off OK and landed well. Luggage was taken off at Houston."
Cons: "Luggage was removed in Houston (our layover). So we didn't have the bags in Indy. Was provided a kit to help. And bags came in around 1:30a to our hotel. Thankful! So great of SW to get them to us so quickly. We had a wedding to attend and will be able to wear our wedding clothes!"
Pros: "Boarding and quick baggage delivery."
Cons: "Baggage claim was very professional but we were lucky to get there ahead of a group from a flight where it looked like a bunch of bags were late. Process is slow (probably unavoidable) but only two people to handle the crowd."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "I don't like the free for all seat situation. It would be nice if we could pick our seats depending on when we book our flight, etc. The seats are rather tight. If you have wider hips, it will be hard for you to sit in the center seat or on the aisle when the plane is packed. I also wish they sold food on the plane. My total travel time with two flights is almost 6 hours. I always start to crave the protein boxes or healthy food options American Airlines sells on their flights. SW should sell food. They would profit."
Pros: "SWA is awesome! Courteous flight crew. Pop quiz to the people in the exit row before departure, made them think (what do you do if you look out your window and see fire?). Got their attention and reminded them of the seriousness of them accepting the responsibility of sitting there."
Cons: "Construction at the Boston airport caused a delay on the return flight, not able to handle all the flights with one of the runways torn up. Southwest shifted the departure and still made it a good flight with an almost on time arrival in Houston."
Pros: "The flight crew was great, cheeky but they drew in some laughs Tom make the flight very easy. Love that Hou to Den is only a short 2.5 hours, flight was easy and the plane was very clean. Quite surprised at how well maintained the plane was. Great job Southwest, you really do tackle the competitor and not your guests."
Cons: "This was nothing against the company but, more on their passengers. People when your seated in the very back don't cut off the entire front and middle of the plane just so you can get off first!"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "This COVID to be over"
Pros: "The sanitizing of the aircraft was beyond expectations. The personal wipes were a plus so we could clean the areas around our seats to our satisfaction. The individual snack bags are a great idea to minimize handling."
Pros: "Customer service as always"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "When my initial flight was delayed significantly, the gate agents went above and beyond to help me get on an earlier flight so I didn't get home too late."
Cons: "Better allergy aware food."
Pros: "The crew."
Pros: "There were 12 delays. No help and I slept overnight in the airport. Worst experience I will never fly delta again"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Great seat easy flight. The food always seem to be the same. I wish they would change it up every once in a while. I've been on this flight 14 times this year and its always exactly the same.."
Cons: "The gate was under construction in Seattle, and it was impossible to hear the gate agents."
Cons: "Filthy plane, and delayed too long"
Pros: "Yes, . Amazing crew Seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Coffee or beverage service would have been a nice touch."
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable, tight space. Could barely move and i’m Not a large person."
Cons: "Late arrival"
Cons: "delayed flight"
Cons: "The comfort seats are not that comfortable"
Pros: "View"
Cons: "Delay after landing"
Pros: "Food and entertainment not applicable"
Cons: "Seats very tight!"
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of snacks and drinks on such a short flight."
Pros: "The crew both going and coming from San Jose, Costa Rica were incredible."
Cons: "The long waits on the tarmac waiting on other planes to leave. Which was a big problem because it caused a lot of us to either barely miss our flight or miss our flight."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and upbeat. Boarding was quick and easy."
Cons: "I paid for a window seat, and there was no window where I sat. Seats weren’t terribly comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "No TV unfortunately"
Pros: "Clean bathrooms and great refreshment choices"
Pros: "Flight attendant was great!"
Pros: "Crew was amazing , one patient was getting sick while flight and always to flight stewards where always outside bathroom to help her. And crew was still able to service whole plane of 200 passengers."
Cons: "My screen seat miniature work but headphone jack was messed up tried two cords and not working so could see movie could not hear so for 5hrs that’s what I did which made me focus more on comfort. Plane interior was or looked brand new."
Pros: "Delta personel were wonderful and helpful both flights"
Cons: "Flights were continually changed both on route to Cancun and on the way back"
Pros: "The flight was good, Boarding was smooth and fast"
Cons: "I asked one of the crew members to help me to get a better seat as I was very tired and wanted to sleep better during the flight and he didnt pay attention to me. I realized there were emthy seats available during the flight"
Cons: "Delayed for no reason"
Pros: "The movies were great and the boarding was more streamlined.the plane was clean and in good condition."
Cons: "The seats are getting smaller and more cramped. There still better then American but ugh. Delta's is stingy with their snacks unlike Southwest gives you two or three without even asking you have to beg for two from Delta and they act like it's breaking rules"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Due to a family illness i was not able to make the 1st leg of my roundtrip flight to Santa Ana. Not only was i forced to buy a brand new flight to get out to Orange County, i was charged $150 JUST to be able to keep the 2nd leg of my trip, which i'd already paid for. It's the 2nd Time Delta has done this to me in the space of 2 weeks and it's absolute Idiocy. Gouging you loyal customers like this is NOT how you do business."
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "Again, a quick and easy connector and flight homeward."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "The flight was very rough on landing"
Pros: "anaheim"
Cons: "luggage did not arrive same time with me and not the same airport"
Cons: "The wifi wasn't strong enough to download the app to watch movies on the plane."
Pros: "Comfortable seats in coach Good snacks Friendly crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "4 hour flight. Non-eventful except slight turbulence. Good to be home! Thank you!"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Yet one more trip that reminds me why I refuse to fly any other airline than Delta. (I fly every week for work.) Top-rate LA crew, flights always departs on time, early to destination more than half the time. Comfortable seats, upgraded to Delta Comfort today. Gate agent was friendly, helpful and joking with passengers. Made it seem like we were all going on an adventure. Kudos to Delta all around!!"
Pros: "Fast and very friendly staff."
Pros: "everything on schedule; courteous staff and great pilots"
Cons: "everything was very ordinary so cannot complain"
Cons: "Why can't all the Delta gates be near each other. My connecting flight was very far."
Pros: "With the free entertainment, the time just flew by. From the time we left MSP to the time we landed, everything went smoothly"
Pros: "It was as fast!!"
Cons: "Nothing was offered, my bag was checked at the door but no big deal"
Pros: "Overall great experience"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Blankets"
Pros: "How reassuring the previous crew was that everything would be fine"
Cons: "They lied. Due to delays we got to plane 5 min before scheduled departure. But crew closed plane on our noses. No explanation. No consideration that most of airport was running late"
Cons: "A flying chicken bus. The air conditioning was really loud."
Pros: "in-flight experience was great delta comfort seats crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Boarding staff were flustered because of overbooked flights - I asked them for a seat assignment and they dismissed me saying wait for your name. I asked again several minutes later after I hadnt heard or seen my name on screen, and they rushed me onto the last seat on the plane right before doors closed. I dont think I should have been dismissed so quickly and probably wouldnt have made it on the plane if I wasn't persistent I wish Delta offered better flight snacks in general. Pretzels and peanuts are disappointing. If not, then maybe offer snacks for purchase (on all flights). This was a 2.5 hour flight and they had nothing. I was starving. (Jetblue Southwest Virgin do a better job w food)."
Cons: "Only food available was pretzels. Not even peanuts or cookies."

On our return trip we were able to get on an earlier flight. American airlines made it so easy to do & at no cost!

Cons: "The past two times flying with American out of Dallas my girlfriend and I have been separated on the flight. The first time we were able to be placed with each other but this time the attendant at the counter basically told everyone that because the flight was booked and there were so many people who had the issue that she could not move anyone around to be with their families. That on top of being rude to many of the flyers just makes the DFW experience with American feel like they don’t care about you."
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Did not make this flight"
Cons: "Not as crowded as the LAX to PHX"
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Overall very good flight!"
Cons: "Nothing much!"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything was generally great I don’t have any complaints."
Cons: "Well it’s nothing you can change I was pleased that the flight took 8 hours instead of 9 but because we were early it was a bit inconvenient that Heathrow had us do a “hard” arrival I think that’s what it was called so instead of a gate we got off on the tarmac."
Cons: "The flight was very good. The landing sounded rough with a lot of braking. Crew were really friendly. The food was expensive but fresh sandwich. Plane was beautiful. Lovely flight overall"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "AMERICAN IS THE WORST. Never flying with them again. My flight was cancelled, &they would NOT rebook me until 2 days later. REFUSED to compensate for the hotel I booked for the night. Held my baggage hostage & would not return it for a whole day. And their customer service is non-existent."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, and the flight was very bumpy and the pilot really had a bad landing."
Cons: "The man in the aisle seat was so obese he took room from the middle seat, which caused that person to lean into my seat. I spent three hours leaning to the right against the wall. If the airlines are going to make the seats smaller, they need to make arrangements for people who don’t fit in the seats. Entertainment didn’t work."
Pros: "On-time departure and arrival, friendly ground staff and flight attendant"
Pros: "Being able to pick your seat ahead of time, comfortable leather seats, snacks, on-board entertainment and free carry on make it worth paying a little extra over the other budget airlines."
Cons: "Constant delays. Maybe it has more to do with O'Hare itself than AA."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Having to check our carry ons. We noticed another passenger had placed two carry ons in the overhead. If others are doing that, it forces others to check their carryons."
Pros: "Smooth ride, good service."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "As soon as I boarded I noticed a strong urine smell. It didn’t really go away, or I just got used to it."
Pros: "On time and convenient"
Cons: "Crowded"
Pros: "The seats were quite comfortable."
Cons: "My bags didn’t make any legs of the trip. AA should allow downloading the app on the airplane."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "More than 3 hour delay, entertainment system audio did not function and the flight path was set to Palm Beach instead of Orange County."
Pros: "I had a connection flight to JFK I came before the time about 15 min and crew saw me but she told me, sorry someone took your seats I lost around 4000$. This happened at Dallas airport."
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Late , didn't make it on our flight back to Santa Ana"
Pros: "Nice newer plane, beautiful."
Cons: "Though I was in a elite preferred seat (not biz). I had about 6-7 inches from my face to the built in screen in the headrest. Hard not to notice that I couldn’t move an inch without hitting the seat in front of me or passenger next to me."
Pros: "The airline staff was SO kind and helpful. I'm an AA fan now!"
Pros: "Too many commercials on the TV before being able to watch the show."
Cons: "The aisles are not wide enough and people continue to hit me with their luggage and hand bags. Always the people waiting block the entrance of the gate when it is time to board."
Pros: "On time, crew was helpful and kind, entertainment options were vast."
Pros: "The AA flight attendant staff served good food and enough snacks and beverages to make me feel full on my 11 hour flight. The selection of movies and music was very diverse. And tge flight was an overall enjoyable experience."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They had a delay that bumped our international connection. We had to switch airports and airlines and arrived significantly later than originally planned, causing us to miss pre-wedding events."
Pros: "Very smooth trip from beginning to end."
Cons: "I was not a fan that the overhead compartment for my row was not available due to the life raft in there. I understand you have to have one on board, but I think it should be more at the emergency aisles. Also the size of the seats and the space you get is not really worth the price anymore. No matter how big or small someone is, its not comfortable. Airlines need to get back to how the seating was back in the day with great leg room and the seats are a bit wider than what it is now."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Free snacks provided on plane."
Pros: "On time and very professional"
Cons: "The snack had coffee in it."
Pros: "There was a TV. Crew was friendly and professional."
Pros: "I enjoyed the Gps chart showing the flight data from takeoff to landing."
Pros: "Rapid boarding. On time performance. Plane was reasonably clean."
Cons: "Seats were tight but OK for a 3 hr flight. AA allows first passengers to carry excessive carry-on forcing later boarding passengers to check everything."
Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft, the attendant at the gate told me to check the size of my carryon bag against the test dimensions, which I did. My bag fit but I had to press the side in slightly to make it fit. She said it had to slide in without me pressing on it and proceeded to make me remove items from the bag in order to board the plane. I walked down the ramp with my extra pair of shoes and a book in my hands. As a result, I had to place my bag far from my seat due to the added time. My bag easily fit in the overhead compartment with room to spare and my being made an example was a completely pointless exercise."
Pros: "Staff was honest. Pilot and ground representative kept us updated."
Cons: "Delay while we waited for a crew from Denver and nobody cleaned the plane while they waited. Instead the crew arrives quite late to find a dirty plane. While the plane was being cleaned our Co-pilot was reassigned. We waited on the plane while they scouted up a different co-pilot. This caused another delay. Staff did the best they could but the organizational incompetence was not lost on the passengers."
Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me $50 when i checked in my suitcase."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was wonderful."
Cons: "The flight left on time but arrived late by at least 1/2 hour. I am small but the seat was narrow: my neighbors kept on hitting me when they moved. And I think it is terrible to have to pay to reserve almost any seats except for the middle seats."
Pros: "Flight was quiet and uneventful, but late."
Cons: "no good glutenfree options. How about a Turkey Sandwich on multigrain gf bread? Or a wrap made with corn tortillas? Toasted almonds instead of only pretzles. Or a coconut macaroon instead of a cookie made with wheat."
Pros: "We did get onto another flight that morning in the exit row."
Cons: "I didn't receive an email to check into my flight for Alaskian airline/American Airlines, and when I tried to check in online from my confirmed ticket order the website wouldn't let me check in. When searching where to go at dallas ft.worth (DFW) airport to check in for our alaskian airlines flight the website sold us to go to terminal E 18 where they are, but when we arrived we were in fact flying out of a completely different terminal A, not having enough time to check our bags and missing the flight."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Our flight was so late. I actually missed the original time. Ran thought TSA, sprinted to the gate and then... waited for slightly over an eternity. But honestly, the great part of AA is the super small seats, really whi fits in these seads. Thank you. I'm 4-5."
Pros: "Seats were new."
Cons: "A lot less leg room than Southwest. Very cramped. Boarding crew in PHX was very uptight and stressed. Not sure why as everything seemed in order."
Pros: "Polite and professional"
Cons: "No Free Wi-Fi"
Pros: "I love the stewartesssssss"
Cons: "The dudes cause they prolly gay"
Pros: "As I was sitting there waiting to board the plane I started to have anxiety. Watching how many people lined up to get on the plane made me a little nervous. I even thought about renting a car and driving from Dallas to OC California. I waited until i was almost the last person to board. What a pleasant surprise. I was seated between 2 lovely people who probably could have but didn't hardly talk the entire flight. The conversations we did have were pleasant, and they slept some of the time without snoring. It was a very nice flight home! And I'm thankful I didn't rent a car. Flying is much quicker!"
Cons: "Same as above answer. Boarding the back of the plane first makes so much more sense! I'm totally sure you all have your reasons for doing it the way you do since you have been doing this thing for years now, I would just do it different."
Pros: "The attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Why are you asking about entertainment? There is none. There were a few TV screens scattered about showing something, but no headphones were offered at all, and it appeared the entertainment, which was very hard to see, was NBC TV shows. The quality of air travel has plummetted over the last 10 years."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "More room"
Pros: "The flight was cheap and no real issues with it. I'm just looking for a cheap flight and no bags lost/delayed and I think Frontier is great! 10/10! :-)"
Cons: "Gummi Bears were out of stock on the plane but no big deal since I bought almond M&M's instead. There isn't too much leg room I guess and no TV or radio but considering the price is cheap that is to be expected. 10/10! :-)"
Pros: "The plane did not crash."
Cons: "Aside from a 3 hour delay that made me miss my appointment for the day, *all* available seats are premium seats with a charge assigned if you choose one. But they magically get you one for free if you don't select one. The seats are TERRIBLE - uncomfortable and don't recline. They charge for a carry-on. Don't fly Frontier if you can afford any other choices. Even water or soda is $3."
Pros: "It was a direct flight and the flight was on time."
Cons: "the baggage fees were outrageous and made this trip much more expensive than if I had gone with a better airline. There is no wifi on the plane and while you can buy everything else, there is no option to buy wifi which is the one thing I would have paid for. The staff was unfriendly at best and one was very rude and frantic. I will not be flying this airlines again!"
Pros: "Air hosts and hostesses"
Cons: "Need more leg space"
Cons: "Extreme turbulence. Crew didn’t do anything to inform or keep passenw"
Pros: "FAST BOARDING. NICE AND COLD FLIGHT."
Cons: "BAD QUALITY COFFEE."
Pros: "Basic service but smooth."
Cons: "No food or drinks."
Pros: "2 hour delay"
Cons: "Long wait"
Pros: "Nithing"
Cons: "Rude attendants, filthy plane, charged for soda and ice water.. Will not fly this airline again"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bad experience!!!!!"
Cons: "The 3 hour delay and continued to have to pay extra for food, carry on, etc. No apology for the delay. I don't know why I bother to show up on time for frontier flights. I've not had one leave on time."
Pros: "Smooth take-off and landing, right on time, fast boarding."
Cons: "No entertaining screen."
Cons: "Flight canceled without explanation after a 4 hour delay."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence at the beginning of the flight. I would have liked it if the pilot let us know about the bumpy ride."
Cons: "Ridiculous, hidden fee add-ons, Totally unprofessional airline from staff to website."
Pros: "Flight went as expected, no problems"
Cons: "Disappointed overall. I had never flown with frontier before that I would remember all the differences. Not to be negative but your company needs to know. I fly all over the place and use many airlines but this one was disappointing. Price was great I thought......."
Cons: "You have to pay for hot tea, coffee when every other airline it's complimentary. Along with paying for carry on bags. Ridiculous!"
Pros: "Rude crew, over charge gor luggage, will never fly again frontier again"
Pros: "The staff was very professional. Especially the male flight attendant on F9269 Denver to Santa Ana. Staff on the plane was great!"
Cons: "I understand there were a lot of issues with the weather and the original plane to be boarded. We departed an hour and 15 minutes late and with the transfer of planes, it seemed that at least half the plane did not get their luggage. There was at least 50 of us standing at the baggage claim and we never got our bags. There was also no one to really talk to about it except one person. We all lined up to give our information to her. Fortunately, I was already talking to her when the line started and got that done pretty quickly. As far as the rest of the passengers, I'm assuming if they were at the back they had to waste another hour waiting to give information after waiting about an hour for our luggage. Also, I live local so it is not a big deal for me to go to the airport to retrieve my bag, wherever it is. Others do not have that luxury."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lost my bag and the lines were insane!"
Cons: "The extra charge for a seat is absolutely terrible, or risk not sitting with your travel companion! Also while the airline "alerts" you about the charge a for carry-on bag, I saw no enforcement of that rule and many passengers I spoke with stated they did not pay the extra carry-on baggage fee. The seats were terrible and the tray table was a joke. No complimentary beverages. Awful experience!!!!"
Pros: "I had to cancel my trip plans and went to cancel and found out that not only would I not get a refund on the flight but I also was not going to be able to get a refund on the seat selection. Front tier has nickeled and dimed me to a degree that I would never Fly them ever."
Cons: "They have a low flight charge but then you have to pay for everything else that you want. You have to pay even for carry-on baggage. You have to pay for any seat selection other than in the back of the plane. when all is said and done, their prices are equal or higher than any other carrier."
Cons: "They lost our luggage. We didn't find it for two days. When we noticed it missing there was no one to report it too. We had to rely on the kindness of Southwest to help us. When the Frontier agent finally came to take our report, they let us know they don't offer a emergency shave kit for passengers with lost luggage. :(( Really just the topper of a horrible uncomfortable flight with a crew that wasn't helpful..."
Pros: "Front tier flight was canceled due to mechanical problems. Our passenger was not rescheduled on another airline, he had to make his own reservations after that. It took him 18 hours to go from Colorado to California"
Cons: "Front tier flight was canceled due to mechanical problems. Our passenger was not rescheduled on another airline, he had to make his own reservations after that. It took him 18 hours to go from Colorado to California"
Pros: "Clean airplane"
Cons: "Impossible to fit through your aisle to get to main aisle if someone's seat is reclined. I literally had to crawl over the people in the middle and aisle seats because I could y walk in front of them without basically being in their laps. The biggest thing, ITS ALWAYS A DELAYED FLIGHT. I have flown frontier San Diego to Denver and OC to Denver probably over 100 times. I have ALWAYS had a delayed flight do to nothing but poor planning by frontier. It's never weather, 85: never a plane malfunction, just delayed for whatever reasons. It's pretty irritating after years of flying your airline, that you can pretty much always gaurentee a delayed flight."
Cons: "I hate me being stuck in the middle seat . yimour seating system is unfair . You charge for seating in the isle or window seat . That is ridiculous . I will never fly with ur airline again"
Pros: "One attendant tried really hard."
Cons: "Gate change plane 1 1/2 hours late no one at podem to check flight before mine out and then she had to do our flight she was overwhelmed and no assistance, one passenger was taken off the plane a dog got loose inside the plane before take off during the flight we were all looking for a dog that got out of its carrier New attendants was overwhelmed and coukd not handle the angry passengers because they all wanted free drinks for the flight taking off so late. The senior attendant how to deal with angry passengers and do her job a screaming baby on the entire flight So many passengers with needs, wheelchairs and so many baby strollers took so long to board plane then passengers rushing to use the rest room so we kept waiting to take off I could go on but I won'the. If your company policy is one personal item and ever other carry on is a fee please stick to that for everyone. I Pais my fee but many other passengers had twice as much as I carried on and they never paid additional fee..."
Pros: "Crew was efficient and courteous."
Cons: "Cramp and uncomfortable seating. Slow, inefficient baggage handling. Excessive flight delay time."
Pros: "Every one in the plane will be thursty and hungry. You can charge the trvellers and gave him food or water or juice every one hour. I feel bad no water no food and first time i travelled by frontier beside me got food and ate it infront of me and me woww in a very bad situation"
Cons: "I didn't like how it was delayed for 2 hours. I bought this ticket to get home to see my fiancé because he was coming home from deployment. Then with it being delayed caused problems"
Cons: "Seats"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "The company needs to treat its customers better. The seats are awful. We had to change planes and they didn't give us any compensation for our loss of time."
Pros: "Funny steward.....short flight"
Cons: "Long check in lines........delay one hour"
Cons: "We had to wait for an hour on the plane to take off due to a luggage loading problem. I was over an hour late getting home."
Cons: "The ticket kiosks did not seem to work well and nobody wanted to help- they just said get in line. There were 2 huge lines even though i got there almost 2 hours before my flight. I had no luggage to check in so I tried the kiosk, finally got one to work and it found me and my flight but said I needed to go to the counter. I waited in line >25 minutes then they announced that all Orange County passengers needed to move ahead. Got my ticket no problem, but another long line through security and not sure if I would make the flight. Got to the gate 2 minutes before boarding. It all caused a lot of anxiety!! The flight was fine- no frills and it was somewhat late arriving.I am not sure I will fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Flight boarded 40 minutes late due to Frontier airlines personal issues. No snacks or even water served without a cost. Seats uncomfortable and did not recline."
Cons: "The seats no longer recline making them uncomfortable. Carryon luggage is charged even a soda is charged! Probably will never use again."
Pros: "It didn't crash."
Cons: "Frontier's bait-and-swicth a la carte pricing (ALL seats and ALL luggage - including carry-on - have additional costs over the base fare). The fare listed on travel sites only applies if you have no luggage and sit in the aisle. Total cost was equal to or more than that of competitive airlines. No food or entertainment offered. Seats are cheaply made, 6" tray tables. Return flight was delayed for unexplained reasons longer than the flight time itself. First - and last - time I've flown Frontier."
Cons: "Didn't make the 45 minute cutoff for check-in on the flight the previous day because of hevy traffic and road work coming into Denver. I went with another airline that got me home instead of waiting until the next day"
Pros: "Frontier is not what it used to be. Your nickled and dimed. I will avoid using Frontier in the future."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Quick boarding and baggage check-in"
Cons: "Lots of hidden fees, VERY unfriendly baggage policies, VERY UNCOMFORTABLE SEATS. You'll end up paying the same price for a nicer flight with better baggage policies and more comfy seats after you end up paying all the hidden charges. Expect to add $105 each way on to your total costs. The seats look like aluminum frames with some cloth draped over it..."
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "When the cost of the ticket is displayed it doesn't include the extra money you have to pay each way to get a seat, every single seat costs extra money, why not just include it in the price. Then even carry on bags cost an extra $30 each way, if you get the cheapest seats and carry on a bag, your flight ends up being $100 extra from what was displayed."
Cons: "No water or any beverage offered. A new low even for Frontier."
Pros: "Boarding was effeicient. Back to front. Flight left on time and was early on arrival. Yay!"
Cons: "Minimal comforts. Seats, trays, and not technology. Food wasn't poor because I didn't have any. Just no good, interesting or healthy choices."
Pros: "All processes were smooth. This was my first Frontier flight in years, so I was a bit surprised at having to pay for coffee, but so be it."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ripoff across the board"
Pros: "Ticket price was refunded with no questions asked. Ticket counter clerk was very nice."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with no rescheduling, no vouchers were given for hotel or for flights on another airline."
Cons: "It was by far the worst customer service I've ever encountered! Never been so nickel and dined!"
