Pros: "Crew was great, flight in general was okay"

I'm not sure the tray table was wiped down, or at least not very well. The in-flight tracker was completely incorrect, I was on a 4-hour flight and it read 14 hours and counting throughout."
Pros: "Crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "Delta check in was HORRIBLE! I was charged for a bag check in and had to take my bag through security and they threw away my cologne and razors."
Pros: "The movies were good on the plane."
Cons: "Everything! I was given a wheelchair, wheeled to a spot and told to stay there. I waited over an hour. I couldn’t get thru customs and security alone and I had to ask a non employee to help me the whole time, I was then yelled at by an employee because they didn’t think I was handicapped at the gate"

Pros: "The plane had more leg room and felt less confined because of higher ceilings."
Cons: "The 2 bathrooms in the rear are VERY narrow. I'm average size and barely fit. Also, the waiting area in terminal 3 at LAX is very crowded and noisy and the options for charging portable devices is minimal. I will definitely avoid Delta if I have to go through LAX."
Pros: "Good flight attendants.."
Pros: "Olivia Sanchez and Yvette Diaz were absolutely. 100% phenomenal. They upgraded my friends and I to a flight tomorrow, and we can still meet with our group in time."

Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."

Cons: "you couldn't hear the staff when they started boarding the plane"
Pros: "Smooth, quick and comfortable flight."
Cons: "I have the worst opinion of the Delta company, when I was flying to Atlanta on October 20 they changed my flight at the last minute I had to leave until my job to take another flight. Just today when returning my suitcase did not arrive they sent it to another destination. I think the company gives very bad service."
Pros: "Great Food. Good entertainment. I recommend the aisle seat if you have to go top the bathroom frequently. :-) I felt that the flight attendants were concerned about our comfort on the flights."
Cons: "I would have liked more of a music and movie selection."
Pros: "Perfect flight"
Pros: "Good food and movies. Comfy seating with plenty of room."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and gave great service."
Cons: "Legroom was poor, Im 6' tall and my knees were rubbing the seat in front. Flight was full so no alternate."
Pros: "Free movies helped the time fly by. Stewardess, or whatever the PC word us now, Britt was awesome"
Pros: "Cabin crew was very polite helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Can't change the weather. Flight was delayed a bit but they were very informative as they found out info."
Cons: "Never made it on this flight and in the end my luggage was lost."
Pros: "Crew was very good and nice on the flight"
Cons: "Flight terminal was changed about 30 to 45 minutes before boarding Flight was delayed due to AC problem Configuration of the plane was terrible. Little leg room but the windows did not align with the seats so a window was shared with two rows making it challenging to open or close a window without disturbing the passenger in the other row with whom the window is being shared. No charging outlets in the terminal or on the plane. Plane had no food to offer for purchase. Expected better from Delta."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Well delta over sells their flights every time and have to buy people out of their seats. This would be fine if it didn't mean that your seats have to be changed last minute and without your knowledge. I choose a window on purpose because I am claustrophobic. I did not pay for upgrade because I was able to select a seat that was a window...had I known it could change I would have. Zero communication just surprise you have a. Ew seat."
Pros: "Very new plane arrived on time no problems"
Cons: "Nothing everything was great"
Pros: "First class crew was great! Smooth ride, arrived early"
Cons: "Lunch option on LAX-AUS wasn't that good (chicken salad or meatballs), also was pretty sparse on the meal itself compared to other airlines"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Pros: "Crew was attentive, kept us informed throughout, and were friendly. Landing was smooth."
Cons: "Bathroom ran out of tissues and toilet paper halfway through the flight. Alerted the crew, and they added tp. Bathrooms seem to have gotten even narrower, barely any room to move in there! Also, we had to sit on the tarmac after landing for 30 min due to gate traffic. A few minor inconveniences, but overall tolerable."
Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."
Pros: "The Delta crew on the flight was wonderful - but the crew at ATL really shined. A huge amount of people for connections arrived at the same time and needed to get through customs and the staff were very calm and efficient in directing everyone and making sure the line moved."
Pros: "Clean plane, good service. on time departure, early arrival."
Cons: "I did not like the way the plane was boarded- people could not get into their seats because others blocked the aisles - so chaotic. Passengers were not being rude to one another, it was simply that the process is poor. Could the zones instead reflect both location of seat and area of plane, so that those with window seats at the back board first, then middle seats, then aisle? That way if aisle seats fill first, seated people are not stepping back into the aisle to accommodate others needing to get a seat in that row, while everyone on the gang way must wait for the aisle to clear."
Cons: "New design of the the plane with side to side bathrooms at the back leaves much to be desired. Those were the smallest airplane bathrooms I've ever used!! I had trouble fitting and I'm not a large person!"
Cons: "No leg room, seats vastly too narrow"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice and polite. They served drinks and snacks in a timely manner while on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."
Cons: "The economy seating was very tight on this plane. I'm just 5'8", and it felt incredibly tight. I think I had 2" of leg room. I cannot imagine being much taller."
"Wasn’t allowed to get on the flight even though we made it to our connecting gate 10 minutes prior to the scheduled departure."
"It left on time and arrived a few minutes early. The whole process of checking in, seating (got my upgrade thankfully!), and the meals (superb multi-grain healthy salad) were great. It arrived on time (actually a few minutes early). American continue to keep up its promise of customer service. I love being part of the American traveller family."
Pros: "Landed early in Austin, always nice."
Cons: "For an over 3hr flight, no snacks for sale was surprising and disappointing. Wifi entertainment did not work on personal devices, either."
Pros: "My flight was canceled and I don't know when or how much I will be refunded. The flight was canceled due to "maintenance" and they booked me on a new flight...for 16 hours later on the NEXT DAY. That was not acceptable for me and my travel companion since we have work today. There were no other flights and rental cars were scarce. I was able to book us tickets on a bus, and incurred costs for the bus tickets and the transportation to the bus stop. I want to be compensated for those costs AND refunded for the price of the ticket."
Cons: "Everything. There was also a lot of miscommunication about how my gate checked bag would be handled. Once I got back to Austin, my husband had to drive all the way out to the airport to retrieve my bag because they were not able to give it to me in Dallas. It was a huge inconvenience all around."
Pros: "Took care of us, gave us snacks and drinks, and pillows and blankets"
Cons: "Plane almost caught up in flames. Gas was filled through the entire plane. Had a big scare."
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Great crew, clean plane."
Cons: "Bring back beverage service when you can!"
Cons: "Its okay"
Cons: "They could at least announce boarding group 4..."
Cons: "communication prevented me boarding my British flight, rerouting done by american, had paid reseved seat don't know if I will receive a refund. now have to spend my first few days back home going through the delayed flight to europe protocols."
Pros: "We were given sandwiches and drinks when our flight was delayed."
Cons: "We boarded our flight and then told there are maintenance problems. Our flight was delayed 4 hours."
Cons: "More beverages"
Cons: "The communication to the passengers. Our flight kept getting delayed every 30 min. They kept telling us different reasons. We were supposed to take off at 2:40pm and we waited every 30 min delay until 7pm. We have kids so we had to get home. We ended up renting a car and driving to Austin."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and they announced it was because they weren’t sure there was enough tread on the tire to land which didn’t give anyone a great feeling. Crew was probably on their last shift and just rude."
Pros: "Travel time was great"
Cons: "The chairs can be more comfortable."
Pros: "Nothing, flight was delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "Even the food was decent (granted, I flew in 1st,so at least there was food)."
Cons: "Power outlet cover was busted. But it worked."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and easy as well as the crew was friendly and accommodating. Great end to a fun weekend away."
Pros: "The crew handled the flight delay well."
Cons: "Having to wait in Chicago due to mechanical plane problems was a bunner!"
Cons: "After boarding the plane, it lost power. We sat at the gate with no air conditioning for almost an hour. While they tried to jump start the plane. After deboarding due to the heat (Dallas temps around 105 F), instead of telling us the next available plane to put us on was going to be 5 hours later, they delayed the flight 15-30 minutes at a time. This was a flight from Dallas to Austin and I could have rented a car and driven in a shorter amount of time."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Cons: "Most was as expected."
Cons: "Had a mechanical problem and took us 30 minutes to take off"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "entertainment monitor for my seat did not work at all. also on all flights: I was not aware one needed one's own headphones to hear entertainment."
Pros: "I lost money, I came back a day later wish it wasn’t plan and is NOT ok ."
Pros: "Curteous. Prompt. On time."
Pros: "Good Hospitality"
Cons: "Insuffecient supply of juices etc"
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Cons: "I bought travel insurance as I do with any trip. I have a complicated family emergency that forced me to call off the trip. Being that I bought trip insurance, I felt good. Well turns out they make you jump through so many hoops that your travel insurance fee is useless. I sent a letter to Allianz (the company that handles the travel insurance) and blasted them for their insensitivity in a difficult time. Going forward, I will not be purchasing travel insurance in the future. It may sound irrational but if you think about it, travel insurance is the tax on gullible people. You hear travel insurance and one assumes that if you spend the extra money on the insurance and something comes up, you can at least get much of your money back. Don't count on it! It's a 1/1000 chance they will do the right thing so the odds are not in people's favor. If you want to be smart, use the money you would have spent on travel insurance on some pre flight cocktails at the airport bar. Air travel is hellish enough without scams like Allianz!"
Cons: "Leg room/space BA offers is calculated for short and small body frame passengers and it is on not acceptable. It feels like cattle Wagon. BA should show consideration for real passengers not some sort of statistical average. I am 6'4" and sitting in your plane's cabin inflicts hours of body pain. The space given is sufficient for children and teenagers. Also sitting in the hot cabin for extended amount of time is extremely uncomfortable. Why there is no cooling and proper air ventilation right from the beginning?"
Pros: "the plane was very new and in excellent condition"
Pros: "Full can of tomato juice, head rests on the seat, relatively roomy seats and happy attendants."
Pros: "NOT much!"
Cons: "My window seat was right against the right engine. I could feel the vibrations and noise. It seemed like an old plane. I was definitely miserable on this flight. Very!"
Pros: "Love these Non-stop to Austin even though they are always full. Thanks for this luxury of non having to transfer in Dallas."
Cons: "The down side is that these planes are smaller so we didn't have any entertainment and therefore no place to charge digital devices. There is however, wifi to purchase."
Cons: "Delayed waiting to unload fuel, then delayed again after they broke the tow-bar and had to inspect the nose gear. Hot cabin while waiting."
Pros: "Everything was timely, courteous & pleasant. The aircraft was very clean."
Pros: "I got home safely"
Cons: "The airport was super crowded and the space in the plane was cramped (and I am a small person - 120 pounds). The plane was not clean and I actually picked up a virus on the plane and am still sick. I wiped down all of the surface area around my seat and still got sick. Airline travel is miserable and crowded and there is minimum service."
Cons: "He flight was extremely cold and they did not have any blankets. Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I liked the 2 x 2 seating arrangement. Leg room was adequate."
Pros: "I got these flights for dj jobs I had under a us p2 visa. My original flight to dallas was delayed from 12:56 to 8pm which would of landed me in dallas at 2:21am but the club Fat Rabbit closes at 2am Which in fact was a 1300 (US dollar) loss. I re booked my ticket to Austin from Vancouver this morning because the only reason to go dallas was my job. Was supposed to fly in have dinner play music get back on the plane n go Austin but going to dallas was irrelevant and a 7 hour delay was absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "The fact I lost 1300.00 us has pissed me off I'm contacting AA about this I have my visa papers n contracts to show proof if not action is taken i will be contacting a lawyer"
Cons: "Delayed on the ground and didn't make up any time in the air. Arrived 45 minutes late."
Pros: "New plane with leather like seats and good entertainment system."
Pros: "Both power and USB plugs at each seat. Entertainment options not bad."
Cons: "Very narrow seats with little leg room. Reclined seat in front of you is right in your face."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful, the magazine was worth reading and the flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "The seat felt like a wooden block was strapped to my back."
Pros: "Crew was super nice"
Cons: "Flight was hour late leaving. Seats too close together. Guy next to me dipped himself in cologne before boarding."
Cons: "the flight was 4 hours late. we were constantly shuffled to different gates. the internet on the flight didn't work."
Pros: "The crew, how we left promptly and didn't take ages boarding."
Cons: "The seats, the lack of food options."
Pros: "Good customer service but to be expected"
Cons: "Horrible bin space Sitting arrangement southwest has better system including free baggage"
"Worst plane ride ever. So uncomfortable and it ran late was just not a great company for us"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, there was sufficient leg room"
Cons: "No snacks unless you want to pay an arm and a leg. One stewardess snapped at me when I tried to touch a bag of chips to move it and see what was available. She could’ve been a lot friendlier! I had no way of seeing what was on the cart from my seat and had to rely on her to tell me what was available. After I bought something and she passed by, I saw something else I’d rather have but it was too late by then….and she didn’t list it as an option. In flight movies would’ve been nice, too."
Cons: "Delays are a thing with allegiant. This time 4 hrs., previous to that 2 hrs, messy boarding, staff is unfriendly both in McAllen and Sanford. Total mess."
Cons: "For the price it was a very good flying experience"
Pros: "Allegiant does a great job of turning flights and getting you out on time in general. The crew is friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding."
Cons: "Should offer free water at least."
Cons: "I had problems with baggage and Allegiant staff at the airport were very unhelpful."
Cons: "The ticket lady was rude just nasty and upset for no reason."
Pros: "I'm never flying them again I like nothing"
Cons: "the flights were never on time"
Pros: "Not much after sitting in the airport for two extra hours on both flights"
Cons: "They could have boarded flights on time or at least explained why the flight had been delayed."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Bag check agent could have been a little more friendly."
Pros: "Comfortable and inexpensive tickets"
Cons: "It was all good!"
Cons: "Flight itself was great. Seats are very narrow"
Pros: "The price was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for two hours."
Pros: "Price of ticket. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "Baggage limitations are not clear: especially when the ticket says no carryon luggage. What they mean is anything that fits under your seat and is under 20 lbs is OK. Seat did not recline. Leg room was poor."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Offer at least water at no charge."
Pros: "The boarding wasn’t smooth, there were 3 women at the podium listing zones and it was very mumbled and low, quite hard to hear despite the small area dedicated to Allegiant passengers."
Cons: "The women at the podium listing flights could have been friendlier and more customer service oriented... there was a lot of mumbling into the speaker for boarding ... and the person kept giggling into the mic. Once past boarding, everything was great !"
Pros: "Great fares even for last minute booking."
Cons: "Services and comfort as expected for the price."
Pros: "Definitely the price. Boarding process was pretty quick. Flight attendants seemed nice."
Cons: "Left a little late, but still arrived on time, so that was okay. Seats aren't the most comfortable, but that's expected. Was still able to get a little nap in."
Cons: "I dislike their pricing structure."
Pros: "The check-in line moved quickly and our representative was very friendly and encouraged us to download the app rather than pay for boarding passes. Good experience all around"
Pros: "Easy boarding, very nice crew. I would definitely recommend spending the extra for Priority, it is much faster."
Pros: "I’m 5’10- tall for a woman but average height I’d say overall. I was so cramped in that seat that next time I will choose another airline to get more rom."
Cons: "No free water?! That’s just cruel considering the flight was over 2 hours."
Pros: "The service is not extravagant but completely adequate. Also, it is very consistent every time I fly them."
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Pros: "Nonstop on time and as expected"
Cons: "Lands in South Terminal of Austin’s airport, meaning you have to shuttle 8 miles to get to main terminal or long term parking. Unbelievable! Very inconvenient..."
Pros: "Boarding at the new Austin South terminal was a breeze!"
Cons: "It's ridiculous to make passengers keep their personal items on the floor when most of the overhead lockers are empty. Ridiculous and dangerous."
Pros: "- Good price, even with carry-on and larger seat. - Comfortable seats, despite no incline - better than major airlines."
Cons: "- No food or drinks. - No entertainment. Both are acceptable given the price. - Misinformation regarding flight delay, I was sent notifications and app updated to be 1 hour late. However on arrival, boarding time was as usual."
Pros: "the pilot"
Cons: "checking in , it seemed like no one knew what they were doing."
Cons: "We were moved gates a few times. Delayed a few times, finally on a plane and they deboard the whole thing. No one seemed too apologetic at all. Pretty much who cares, after spending money and being moved all over seeming like they cared would've been nice."
Pros: "Last week I flew to Florida on this airline. I quickly wrote a stellar review because the flight crew was sincere, nice and kind. Apparently, that is against policy and on this flight there was no hint of that nice attitude. No frills, no courtesy, just transportation."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "I did not like anything about it. The Departure flight was two hours late. They made us board then unboard the plane, change gates. Then the return flight was posponed from 9pm to 3am departure. They didn't have any refreshments in the gare area other than stale unhealthy pizza, no water. The seats on the plane were the most uncomfortable. I even purchased the extI did not like anything about it. The Departure flight was two hours late.

No recline, no room. Horrible flight"

No recline, no room. Horrible flight"
Pros: "They offered a direct flight from Cincinnati to Austin. The price was good, even though they charge for carry on."
Cons: "They land at the Austin airport, kind of. Once we landed they took us to a Remote terminal which required waiting for a bus to fill up and then take you back to the actual airport. There was no quick way for the bus to return and it has to drive for 15 to 20 minutes to get to the main airport. I took 1 complete hour from when I landed to when I got in my car in lot D."
Pros: "Quick boarding with priority access Friendly staff"
Cons: "Unclear boarding instructions. Both flights roundtrip were delayed about an hour. Wasn't advised of seat changes and reasons why. Mobile passes were unavailable due to a system issue gate attendants had to check manually. Bring own snacks or eat before flight and provide your own entertainment. Seats not reclining are uncomfortable. Not suitable for someone with back issues. First flight was uncomfortably cold return flight was uncomfortably hot."
Pros: "Well, it was a somewhat inexpensive flight out of a convenient terminal."
Cons: "I say somewhat cheap, because by the time they ala carte everything, it's not so cheap anymore. As in no longer cheap enough to justify the bare bones service. The flight attendants are basically candy salespeople. I typically need help putting things in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant actually told me it wasn't her job. That indeed may be the airline's bad policy, but she also thought her way of expressing it was appropriate, which it is not. That has to come straight from the top. Also, what kinda janky airline doesn't serve complementary water. Probably the biggest deal though was that my flight was delayed for 2 hours both ways due to a maintenance issue. I know air travel is fairly safe, but given the track record of both Allegiant and Airbus, I was a little worried during the flights. Even though this particular route is convenient for me, I'm going to avoid Allegiant."
Pros: "Nothing. We were scheduled to fly back to Vegas at 7:07 then delayed to 8:30 then 10 pm then 11:25 pm now 1:15 am. This is unbelievable, unacceptable and ridiculous! And I have to work the next day. This is unacceptable! I just received another update that now we're leaving at 1:45 am . Please do not, again do not use Allegheny EVER again!!"
Cons: "So many delays. This airline is unreliable, unprofessional! Ridiculous! Please read my comments above. Do not use Allegiant!"
Pros: "The idea of a more competitive airfare. New South terminal in Austin is nice. Parking is cheaper. Food truck and outdoor seating are nice."
Cons: "No wifi. No entertainment options. You have to pay for snacks and regular drinks- even water."
Pros: "First time flyer on this airline... I loved that it was a DIRECT flight halfway across the country."
Cons: "Where to start... i guess for starters EVERYTHING is an upcharge. I was suprissed the seatbelts were included! Less legroom than a Cesna 152 and surrounded by 159 of my closest friends. And i mean SURROUNDED. That cabin is SO tight! So tight in fact the seats are a blow mold plastic with roughly 1.5" of foam and fabric. Think go-cart bucket seat with some foam rubber and pleather. Then there's luggage... My carry on bag (that I've used for 15yrs) was too big for the jig at the counter so got to check it for an additional $10 (above the $30 i had to pay to bring it) and they charged me $40 for my original check bag. The hitch is that they only allow 40lbs ($1/lb) for that check bag when the rest of the industry says 50lbs is the norm. Oops, gotta pay for that too! And wait for it... sodas are $2 in flight!"
Pros: "Crew was great and handled the delay well. Definitely worth the 6 bucks each way to get the seats with additional leg room."
Cons: "This the 2nd time I've flown from Punta Gorda to Indy in the last month and both times the departures were delayed because of mechanical issues. No vouchers offered + no free anything offered = Bad customer service model. This airline also charges for carry-ons."
Pros: "Low cost, great service, arrived 20 min early"
Cons: "Seats were kinda tight but I'm sort of used to that"
Pros: "Arrived an hour before flight. Check in took 25 min and tsa 30 minutes. Tried to go through expedite line but agent refused to let me even though flight was leaving in 30 minutes. I have received better treatment in new York airports than here in Myrtle Beach. Who would have thought. There were 3 others that missed the flight. Why would they not just let's be expedited?"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "I paid more to be upfront so I could get off plane faster but there was no room in overhead because people had put their carry on and personal items. I also didn't like that drinks weren't complimentary, especially beings that it was a 3 hour flight."
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Pros: "Great price ."
Cons: "Landing in Austin and having to walk down a wet slippery ramp and then across the tarmac in a thunderstorm ... got VERY wet . How about a cover ?"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Having then bill me for each little thing."
Pros: "It's a cheap direct flight. Seats don't recline, so if you're tall, you won't have anyone leaning into your knees."
Cons: "The seats are really packed in, and people kept slamming into my elbow as they walked down the aisle. De-planing was a bit chaotic, I don't think many of these people fly regularly, and were having some serious heebie-jeebies at their bags being in an overhead compartment not immediately above their head. So before anyone was mobile or doors were open, there were large pieces of luggage being passed around through really crowded spaces. Chill, people. The baggage carousel at the new terminal was poorly designed, shutting down when people went to pick up their bags. It took awhile to get our bags, and we were scolded by the staff for tripping some sensor. I don't know what universe y'all live in, but in this one, you have to move close to the carousel to lift your bag. So the sensor tripped like three times and people were unhappy."
Pros: "The crew was good and had customer service"
Cons: "After an 36 hour delay and only $8 meal voucher in Las Vegas, highly disappointed!!! The next flight was late arrival and Late boarding. everything to include water and sodas are extra fees. not impressed and will never fly Allegiant again"
Pros: "Plane was roomy and comfortable."
Cons: "The Plane WAS NOT CLEAN! The turn around of the plane was so short that you guys did not take the time to vacuum the interior of the plane. My seat and other seats in my row was full of cookie crumbs and sticky food from the previous passengers. It was totally disgusting. Yuck !!"
Cons: "I moved my seat when I checked in to sit with a friend and paid about ten bucks for a different seat. I didn't think much of it until I got to my new seat and realized I had paid to sit in a seat that was basically a bench that didn't recline and was right in front of the bathroom so it rattled every time someone flushed. Classy."
Pros: "Excellent experience & return flight on airbus plane was fantastic, reduced flight time by 1 hour. Great trip, thank you United Airlines"
Cons: "All great"
Pros: "Price line is better not thief like you yu take my money for nothing my husband not traveling your given me fake tickets . bring my money back on my account. am gonna take to court yu fukin beach.yubstolen my money"
Cons: "No bad, easy"
Pros: "The boarding process was good. Departed on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "No social distancing of passengers on the plane yet there are empty rows of seats."
Pros: "One passenger was removed from the plane after 3 times he was warned about removing his mask before takeoff. Due to Covid19, United was boarding by row, from the rear to the front."
Cons: "When I made the original bookings, United was not allowing the middle site of the row to be used. Unfortunately, the plane was almost packed. 8 seats in the rear were empty."
Pros: "They were friendly. Seats are rarely comfortable..."
Cons: "I think all planes need better leg room...."
Pros: "Made up time on delayed flight. Friendly, efficient and helpful."
Pros: "It was okay. I slept mostly. The crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "Even thought I got off a plane and direct to another I had to to go through security again. This meant I had no time to get any food or drink. I got to the new gate after boarding had started. Again, the flights were to close together."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "United Airlines in our experience runs late putting a lot of pressure on any ongoing connections . Not clean . Staff not friendly . Only sometimes helpful."
Pros: "Crew was super helpful and patient as the flight was delayed by more than 3 hours. Captain kept everyone up to date with whatever was going on."
Cons: "Flight delay impacted a lot of other travel plans. No compensation for long delays"
Cons: "My suitcase handle was broken"
Pros: "I liked everything was excellent"
Cons: "There was a 10 minutes delay"
Pros: "Everything was fine once we got on the plane."
Cons: "United took our plane and gave it to another delayed flight, meaning they delayed us by over 4 hours. Didn’t take off until 12:30 am when we were supposed to have taken off at 7:55 pm."
Pros: "TV and movie choices should be according to 2018 instead of1980. Also TV should be from running Era"
Pros: "Captain and crew were brilliant, kept passengers informed throughout as to the delays, as a result all passengers were patient and understanding. Not much more could have been done to improve the experience as the snow and conditions at Dublin airport were out of their hands."
Pros: "My husband and i we want to seat next to each other"
Cons: "1) Chicago O'Hare Airport Airline staff very rude. 2) from Los Angeles to Chicago my husband and i are not sitting to each other. My husband is upset. 3) from Chicago to Los Angeles my husband and i are not sitting to each other. It happened again. Very disappointing. We think the airline doing this intentionally."
Pros: "The price was unreal so I had to jump on this, I was able to get on and off with my backpack no problem. The flights were good, captains were very communicative about times, expectations and when turbulence was present."
Cons: "The check in had to be done in person because of the need to check my bag size, I felt a little insulted that I would have to be checked on my honesty. When I got to the check in it was like watching a special forces team measuring and prodding peoples bags to get them in to the little box even when the shapes were the reason they couldn't fit, not the size of the bags. I literally watched someone fit their bag and the attendant take it out and make it misshaped for the box and show how it didn't slide in. I had no issues with my luggage, but that sucked to watch happen to others. The food and drinks came about 10 minutes before the plane landed."
Cons: "Denied access to lounge in Chicago. Didn't have requested (vegetarian) meal. Flight attendants were rude, not friendly."
Pros: "Corralled group lines allowed people to get in line when I was ready versus open entrance for each group"
Cons: "Plane arrived late to gate making my flight arrive in Austin an hour later. I have an ride home, too."
Pros: "crowded, hot"
Cons: "I didn't like how they switched my seat and stuck me in the middle of to stinky people"
Cons: "Seats were small with not much leg room"
Pros: "The crew The entertainment options The power options The drinks"
Cons: "10 minutes earlier and the food would have been better. Then again, 10 minutes earlier and wouldn’t have made flight."
Pros: "Crew help and service"
Cons: "Lending was bumpy. , Internet was not Working and no entertainment chenal as well"
Cons: "Staff was very unprofessional looking. Hair hanging in faces, not dressed alike, and over weight to the point of touching both sides of the aisle."
Pros: "They got my vegetarian food order right"
Cons: "Old airplanes both there and back, we had a choice of a few movies on a TV that we couldn't access on demand so you had to start half way through, and the quality was appalling. We were supposedly promised we could stream onto our devices via wifi but this didn't happen"
Cons: "The card reader for enetertainment directv didn't work so I couldn't watch tv for flight"
Cons: "Late flight. Plane 1 hour and 37 minutes late because arriving plane was late, then the arriving plane was slow to de-plane, then spent the next hour waiting on "paperwork" to approve takeoff. Very dissatisfied."
Pros: "It got us from a to b but not much more to be said!"
Cons: "The idea of the entertainment system broadcast to your hand held device is fine - it didn't work for me though."
Cons: "United has new seats that have absolutely no leg room and are very uncomfortable. I will make sure never to fly United again. This was 3 hours of agony."
Cons: "Same issue with boarding. Mass of people, no organization."
Pros: "I had the exit window and that made a huge difference in my trip as I am a 6ft tall woman who is all legs."
Cons: "It was slightly turbulent and TSA at O'hare airport are the rudest and laziest humans on the planet."
Pros: "Nothing!!! It was handled in a terrible way"
Cons: "The way they didn't care"
Pros: "Very hot upon entrance to airplane, minimal ventilation, very hot entire flight Seats too close together front to back!!!!"
Cons: "Very hot poor if any ventilation i had to remove my shirt and sit in t-shirt only and still too hot ( i am not a large person-165 pounds and 6 feet tall ) the larger person next to me was suffering even more"
Pros: "Can not think of anything"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Pros: "Crew. Aircraft selection."
Cons: "several people assigned to the same seats, mine included. lots of last minute moving around."
Pros: "quick and efficient way to get to O'Hare."
Pros: "Very polite and helpful staff"
Cons: "Food could be better"
Pros: "They double booked my seat and forced me to sit in an emergency exit row. Pretty sure this is against FAA regulation."
Cons: "While happy to have pilots concerned about my safety, it was frustrating to suffer thru 2 different mechanical delays. The first one was a missing rivet - which turned out to be so bad they had to put Us in a different plane. Then, that plane developed some mechanical/software issues as we were taxing. My 3-hour flight turned into a +5.5 HR endeavor. When you are on 2 broken planes in a row with the same airline you start to to wonder about how well they are maintaining their equipment. I feel like I deserve more than a "sorry" for the use of my extra time, but no credit or flight certificate was forthcoming."
Pros: "The flight was a head of schedule and very smooth."
Cons: "It was freezing cold. I was wearing a sweater and was freezing."
Cons: "Wifi did not work. Limited food & beverage choices."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Kept us belted down for s very long time. Lacked food service, lacked water service till the very end of the lock down. Then we were given the option to leave the plane as the doors were to be disarmed. But if we did the plane could get clearence and leave with no warning. I missed my connecting transportation, had to scrape my weekend plans, currently searching for a place to stay tonight while they locate my bag. I am cold and left my jacket in my bag. The United counter people are blaming it on the weather. I am sure everything was delayed by the laxadaysical baggage loader. The one person ( or lack of help loading the bags on the plane completely altered my travel plans. I requested assistance for hotel only to be told they are full when in fact several are vacant on the Internet. I should of videotaped the baggage loading in Canada, it would of went viral."
Cons: "Second, much longer, leg didnt have free streaming from a personal device. You were asked to pay $8 to watch TV and movies."
Cons: "Food. It is a very long time and there no food enough"
Pros: "Looking out the windows admiring the clouds"
Cons: "Nothing it was overall a nice flight"
Cons: "- Horrible food; - Very old airplane. The oldest I ever flew; - The entertainment system was horrible and not worked. We came the whole flight without having access to anything, neither the map of the flight."
"3.5 hours late and took 40 minutes to get to gate after landing. Frontier is a mess."
"Leave on time and not wait for 40 minutes to be unloaded. Also I was throwing up for most of the flight but unless I wanted to call the paramedics, I was to stay in my seat."
"Why is frontier flights always late ? I have never been in an on time flight with frontier"
Pros: "Flight itself went smoothly and crew was responsive to people's needs"
Cons: "The check-in process for Frontier is a scam. Initial cost of my flight was $70, but they neglected to inform me of extra charges like carry-on and assigned seating until the time of Check-in, which upped my price to ~$130. Still not the worst price, but it was very scummy that this wasn't just charged upfront. Seats are uncomfortable, which led to many people getting up despite the seatbelt sign being on."
Cons: "Having respect for disabled travelers. Offering them time to board ahead of general boarding"
Cons: "Upholding mask expectations! Several passengers deviated without accountability checks by crew."
Pros: "Direct 3 hour flight! Easy"
Cons: "Bring on time but not a biggie!"
Cons: "Always delayed with frontier it’s ridiculous"
Pros: "For low fare it’s ok"
Cons: "It’s ok as we travelled as low fare"
Pros: "They delayed the flight and waited for all passengers to board. Lot of delays in checkin"
Cons: "Charging $$ for every little thing e.g., coke can $2.99, carryon luggage $55, ...."
Pros: "The flight attendants were pretty nice and attentive. The captain was good at keeping the passengers updated."
Cons: "The 2 hour delay was not fun while we sat waiting on the airplane. I realize this is not the crew’s fault."
Pros: "Cost of flight."
Cons: "The seats in a A320/321 are not adjustable. A much longer flight then a couple of hours would be tuff."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues. No help was offered other than rebooking on a flight that didn’t get me to my destination until the next day and included an overnight stay at a hub airport with no hotel voucher. When told that was unacceptable I was handed a piece of paper listing two “Options” from Frontier. Both options involved going to a website and filling out forms. One for cancellation and $500 in travel vouchers which, after filling out the form and submitting returned with a message that the website was closed. Option 2 was to try to rebook which led to a dead end. I finally called Frontier directly and spent over 45 minutes getting everything straightened out. Now I have vouchers that have to be used by January 1, 2019."
Pros: "The crew was sweet for compensating me with Pringle’s and red wine after my seat was not allowed to be occupied"
Cons: "His was my first time flying frontier and absolutely my last. I have now missed my best friends rehearsal dinner for her wedding due to flight delays and lack of communication. “low fare” completely the opposite. My flight ended up costing me more than a United Pium Economy Farr which actually got in on time. When I first boarded after my delay I found a do not occult sign on my seat. The flight attendants noted quickly hat yes that was here seat to fly in, not the patio customers flight. So they compensated me in Pringle’s and a glass of red wine for the inconvenience. I personally will never fly nor recommend this airline. It was worth paying a first class ticket to Austin then having to rush and now kiss the entire rehearsal for my best friend."
Cons: "I purchased a round trip trip to Orlando, my departing flight was delayed due to maintenance issues for almost 5 hours. I cancel my flight at the gate and took another flight with another airline. I emailed Frontier’s customer service that was told I would receive a confirmation email about my refund but I had not received anything, I also tried calling but I kept being disconnected. At the gate, they told me that this would not affect my return flight at all but IT did! I got an email saying I received a full refund 2 hrs before I was suppose to head to to airport to go back home. I immediately called & found out they canceled my ticket & the first person I spoke with wanted me to pay $160 to get back on the flight which I more than I paid for the round trip flight in the first place. I spoke with a manager and was able to get back on the flight for what I paid the first time. Which I’m still not happy about, I’m lucky I checked my email at all that day and realized what they did but still instead of enjoying my last day in Orlando I spend it dealing with this. The return flight was on time but I was seated next to a gentlemen who was a mix of cologne & BO and would not be still. To top it off after landing in Austin, we were stuck on the tarmac for 1hr and 20 minutes because the airplane at the gate we were going to was having some kind of maintenance issues. I’m never flying with Frontier again."
Pros: "I liked that we left on time and actually arrived early."
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that you have to pay for wveeyrhing.I don’t like that they nickel and dime you"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Missed my flight because lack of people to check people in. So slow. Waited 25 minutes. Figured I missed my flight since the board said on time. It was 2:25. Asked if I could get on 7:30 flight. Took computer 10 minutes for her to see and book. As I left, she said the 2:30 was still boarding. I said, oh, do you think I could still make it? She said the plane was still loading and running a bit late, but impossible to get on because I was booked on the 7:30 flight. I will probably not fly Frontier again. 4 hours later and $50 dollars in the hole for food and drink sitting here dreading my middle seat and no room to move for 2 hours. Then, have to pay for a Lyft to get to my car because my cousin was my ride back to her house. I sure do miss the old Frontier."
Pros: "The leg room was very good. The flight was right on time! The plane was neat and clean. The price was the best. Nice crew."
Cons: "I'd have liked a drink and a snack since the Starbucks next to the site was so slow I stood in line 1/2 hour and left without getting to the counter for coffee! Doesn't everyone take luggage - just add it to the ticket price so one can know the actual cost."
Pros: "Very cheap"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable no elbow room or leg room and the chairs are hard."
Pros: "The staff that handled baggage was nice. Also, I liked that we made it safe."
Cons: "My flight was supposed to leave at 3:50...I got to the airport and went through security before I found out that my flight was delayed until 7:30. The flight kept getting pushed back. I waited 8 hours before the flight took off. There no outlets anywhere...leaving customers at a disadvantage because with our delay, our electronics were all almost dead or dead. There were no food options. We were supposed to get a voucher, and I have not received it. Lastly, after waiting over 8 HOuRS, we still had to pay for snack and drink. I was ripped off and will not be flying with Frontier again."
Pros: "Boarding the plane was simple and like most other airlines"
Cons: "First and hopefully last time flying Frontier. Carry-on baggage charge of $60 per person at the gate and only $35 online...added bag online to avoid additional fee. Boarding was fine, but had to wait 45 minutes past take-off time for mechanic to sign off on all maintenance items for plane. All the while, the crew stood around and didn't make anyone aware of anything, almost like it was something that happens to them all the time. Very unprofessional and clearly not focused on the actual people on the plane. The flight attendants were chatting with each other like they were off work and NOT attending to anyone. Very poor crew."
Pros: "The crew and captain were really informative throughout the trip and kept us updated about incoming turbulence. They were very calm and professional about it. We were a bit late boarding on but still arrived on time!"
Cons: "Nothing in particular was bad. You just have to pay for any kind of food or drink onboard so maybe take some snacks or water beforehand. The seats also don't decline. Again, not a big deal to me so it was good overall. Also, if you actually read their website and pay attention to the numerous emails they send you, they TOTALLY mention that you have to pay for a carry on. So just book it online and save yourself the money, it's like $25 for a carry on and $30 for a checked bag. Plus, you should be looking at all that info before you fly, regardless of the airline."
Pros: "The fares are unbeatable"
Cons: "Consistently late."
Cons: "How is it acceptable to place someone who is highly allergic to dogs right next to a lady with a service dog on the flight? I spent 25 bucks to upgrade my seat to avoid the nuisances of an everyday flight. I didn't think I'd be stuck next to an animal. How is it acceptable to not disclose that I'd be stuck next to a service dog? I was miserable the entire 2.5 hour flight back to denverz I am extremely irritated."
Pros: "Ads profess low prices when in fact you have to pay for every single thing and in the end you end up paying the same or more as all other airlines. This is my second Frontier experience and both times I was not able to pay for my bags online with my credit card, therefore I was forced to pay higher prices than necessary. Can't believe you charged me $45 for a carry-on - preposterous!!! Also - I was not able to check in at the kiosk when I got to the airport.... I tried to different kiosks and neither would take my credit card so I had to wait in the long line to talk to ticketing agent . Poor experience all around - will not recommend or use front tier in the future."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "I have been more comfortable on church basement folding chairs that the seats on Frontier. I did pay to move to seat 1A, and it still felt like a torture device."
Pros: "The staff are friendly and professional, for the most part. Check-in was easy and I wasn't hassled about my 'personal item' being too big, which I was sure it was."
Cons: "Firstly, I'm pretty sure that the planes Frontier uses are re-purposed prison planes. The seats don't recline and are uncomfortable as all get-out. They cram you into some kind of military stress-position that ensures you won't sleep, won't be comfortable, and will be reduced into an unsmiling pile of compliance. Secondly, Frontier charges for *everything* - carry-on? That'll be $40-$60. You want a soda? That'll be $2.00. Snack? Yep... pay up, sucka. Water's free, thankfully. That said, the price was right and the flight was mercifully short; so I'd probably do it again. Because I'm a sadist, apparently."
Pros: "I loved the customer service, flight attendants really sweet especially when I had gum on my seat, they upgraded my seat at no cost and offered free snacks and drinks."
Cons: "There was no tv or charging port for cell phone or laptop"
Pros: "Flight was ok. No turbulance. Pilots seemed nice."
Cons: "The crew wasn't very pleasant. I asked a flight attendant if any snacks or drinks were complimentary. She said "No because you got this flight for $100 or maybe even $200 off. I think you can afford a $3 snack". Ha! Why YES I CAN, but I don't want to give YOU any of my money based on that attitude alone."
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "The flight crew was atrocious. They were rude when they spoke to us and when I asked for refreshments they turned around as if to get them for me and then the lady sitting next to my husband had to get their attention again to ask a second time if I could have water and Chex Mix so I could take my medicine. I have serious health conditions and I couldn't even get water without paying $3 a bottle. It is disgusting to me that we are charged for flight and then charged for Refreshments during that flight. Any other Airline who charges for a seat to take you to your destination includes at least drinks and nuts for free but not you."
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times, never even offered a free drink for the trouble"
Pros: "The flight was taking us home"
Cons: "It was a new plane, but late getting out, had no amenities and for me was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Where do I begin? This airline is so incredibly chincy it boggles the mind. $40 to have a carry on bag???? You've got to be kidding me. I think you also have to pay for air circulation on the plane. We sat on the runway for an hour, and the plane was about 95 degrees for the entire time we were on the plane. My requests for the captain to turn on the air were ignored, and we were all left to sweat it out. You have to pay for everything except water, and even getting water is a difficult task! About an hour in, with no carts going by, I went to the back of the plane to ask for a glass of water. The flight attendant, who was literally standing next to the water cart, told me to wait for the service component. I'm 8 months pregnant, was uncomfortable and parched from the roasting plane. I asked why she couldn't just pour me a quick cup right there, and she said "you're just going to have to wait like everyone else." Turbulence ensued and an hour later the attendants made their way to give people their free water. No seats on this plane recline, no leg room. Just awful. Never ever flying this airline again!"
Cons: "Fronteir created new seats that do not recline, are quite thin and small tray tables that don't lock. The consequence is that the man next to me couldn't lean back enough, so slumped onto me most of the flight. A one year old behind me constantly pulled up and down the unmatchable tray table and kicked my thin chair -- so I felt every little tiny foot. The stewardess refused to give us water when our row asked and they forgot to call boarding zone 2 when boarding so it was a mess. I would say Frontier was a terrible airline. Their discounted prices are a farce as they charge for a seat and carry-on luggage, so I may as well have paid for a regular fare from a more comfortable airline."
Cons: "Frontier has a ton of hidden fees...including no free drinks/snacks on the flight, fee for carry-ons. Seats do not recline so you're stuck in 1 position the whole flight. Tray tables were the same size as an iphone."
Cons: "After pushing the flight back twice, they then bumped the flight back up and changed the gate without making an announcement throughout the terminal. I also received a text notification indicating the flight was delayed, but not that it was moved up again and the gate had changed. They only called our names after it was too late and they would not allow us to board. They left seven people standing at the gate as they pulled away. The earliest they could rebook us was 2 days later. Book a budget airline, get budget service. Will happily pay more next time for a different airline."
Cons: "The flight was delayed a few hours. It took forever to Get out of the gate. It took an hour once we landed to get in the gate and deplane. I was given a seat on the computer and then when I got on the plane there were two people with same seat. The floors and seats were unbelievably dirty as well. I have never seen so much trash and crumbs everywhere. It was an awful experience. Our trip to Vegas the first night was ruined because we were planning to see a show Thursday evening and landed two hours late and could have possibly made it but we sat on runway for an hour before deplaning."
Pros: "We got there safely."
Cons: "(same plane and same flight crew for this leg) Overall the Frontier staff was not helpful. They had no information and didn't really seem to care. The flight attendants were doing the bare minimum. And when asked a question they were not helpful and also didn't seem to care about the comfort of the passengers. Several of the overhead lamps on this plane were out. Even though we had to wait on the plane for over an hour before departing, no drinks were offered (unless you wanted to pay for them). I think there are things that can be done to make an experience more enjoyable even when things are not great. Like offering a free soft drink to passengers as they wait etc. Being cheerful can go a long way, and we weren't getting that from this Frontier crew."
Pros: "the crew made the best of a miserable corporate policy; the baggage arrived - 45 minutes after landing."
Cons: "2.0 hours late boarding; boarded 2x; lousy information; surly condescending station manager; insane baggage counter hours; no connection information in flight despite airline full responsibility for everyone on the plane being behind schedule.; connecting flight still at gate when 10 people tried to board and were not given access until a near riot occurred; no one seemed care at all. A woman with 5 week old child, a senior citizen with a cane, a woman recovering form surgery all RAN from gate to the other (about 1/2 miles) only to be told they were too late, the terminal door was closed. Only after pounding on the door, cajoling the customer service people 10 feet away and telling 50 others waiting in the service area did the door open!"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Seats were very comfortable l, but not much leg room"
Cons: "They charge for for everything on this flight. Checking in - it cost $35 to check your bag in - $40 of you want to board with it! I do all the work and I have to pay more? Then to pick a seat - any seat - it is another $5 - $25. I understand that for premium seating (ext, etc) but any seat? Finally - drinks and snacks - that costs money too. While the fare looks cheap - beware of all the add ons. At a minimum, you have an additional $70 to $100 to the price of the ticket This does not turn out to be a cheaper price....beware."
Pros: "The only redeeming quality were the flight attendants. They were kind and professional."
Cons: "$40 for checked bag, $45 for a second carry-on Flight was 45 minutes late with no explanation. The woman operating the gate counter was very unprofessional and downright rude to several people, including myself, who went up to ask a question. There is no free snack or beverage service on flights. Seats do not recline unless you pay extra. During take off the pilot let down the landing gear jolting everyone. Something "overheated." Turbulence persisted throughout the flight. This is my second time flying with them and having a very similar experience. Needless to say, I will not be flying frontier again."
Cons: "Cheapness got the best of Frontier at long last and while my outbound flight was OK, we suffered through an inexplicable two hour delay returning as the passenger computer systems all crashed and a member of the flight crew had to, at long last, go through the cabin and count off each passenger in person. Meanwhile the flight attendants, who all seemed like minimum wage temp workers, had no idea what was going on and could not help passengers. All very disorganized and unprofessional - followed by the offer of $2 for a soda. Avoid."
Cons: "The way I was held hostage by the gate attendant I had to pay an additional $45 to get my one carry on on the flight it was same size when I flew into Denver When I protested he threatened my with a $60 fee He also picked several others to be mean to making them delay boarding He made them step out of line for carry on bags before he even checked their boarding pass Some had paid a fee to carry on extra bags He even brought one girls to tears she had no credit card or money for fee She also had paid extra What a jerk NO ONE should be brought to tears I complained to air line but as usual the just don't care they have their money I will NEVER FLY Frontier again I hate the way airlines treat people now days they treat people like we are less than cattle Not like we are the paying public that they are here to serve with out us what are they flying for??????? I have not flown in years I drive This flight confirmed my feelings NEVER again"
Pros: "good price roomier seat section"
Cons: "In Denver--The electronic sign at the gate my boarding pass indicated was not displaying my flight (AGAIN!!!)and it did not indicate if the gate number had been changed. I and other passengers were alarmed that the flight was not going to happen. Someone did check the airport departure and arrival screen and found out the gate had been changed. Can't the electronic signs at the gates indicate the gate changes of flights? somehow get the word out at the gate? Not all people are experienced enough flyers to know to check the big airport arrival/departure boards and there wasn't a Frontier soul anywhere around to ask."
Pros: "The pricing of the flight was great in comparison to other airlines, the flight was also on time and a bit early arriving to my destination. I did do my research prior to flying with frontier and noticed that many other travelers have complained about the added costs; the airlines website states that you have to pay ahead for baggage and carry-on's prior to arriving at the airport otherwise it'll be a lot more expensive there. I paid for luggage each way, no carry-on during this flight but did choose my seat ahead of time as well as I was traveling with my husband."
Cons: "The bathroom was not clean and smelled terrible - this should definitely be looked into as airplane restrooms are pretty gross already (also being pregnant, the smell was even worse). You don't get a complimentary snack/drink on the plane light other airlines but the ticket was about $100 cheaper than competitors so it wasn't anything to really complain about."
Pros: "The flight, the crew, the updates from the airline and Kayak was great. Frontier is a great company and very affordable."
Cons: "The airline increased the bag fees for the summer without an obvious communication. Very unfair and un professional from such a company. I paid $10 extra than 5 days before. The only problem with Frontier is that to check in bags there is only 1 maybe 2 people taking bags for full planes at least 100+ passengers. As it is cheaper and better to check in bags than carry on the airline should make this proccess more efficient. I spend at least 20-30 minutes to check my bag each wat ok my last trip. Very unefficient!"
Pros: "The Staff was friendly"
Cons: "the flight was only cheaper until you had to either check a bag or pay to carry on! Pay to drink a soda or anything! The seats are the most stripped down uncomfortable airline seats I have ever experienced. After all the add on costs, there is no value in the cramped, crowded, uncomfortable flight. Also, on every flight at least half of the passengers were not aware of the baggage policy until it was too late to check it for less money and had to pay extra to carry on. To top it off, we had to change gates at the last minute, resulting in having to go out of the Domestic terminal and sent us all back through the check in!!! We should have at least been able to fly through the pre check if not rerouted us through another way that did not require the total shoes off, open bags, metal detection all over again!!!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the airline charges for everything. They tried to charge me for my CARRYON bag which is hilarious, and I proceeded to say I would not pay that charge. The attendant let me board the plane anyway and I put my carryon in the overhead without an issue, which deeply concerns me. It seems as if Frontier arbitrarily tacks on that charge, tricking their customers like con artists who will fall for this absurdity. The air conditioning did not work well and they almost forgot to give us water. Maybe they even charged for the water. The attendants were rude. Dont fly Frontier unless you really really really need to save a dime or two."
Pros: "...the ticket agent who got me checked and put me through priority TSA so I could make my flight!"
Cons: "The assistance of a front counter agent was horrible and made inappropriate comments to me due to me being late to my flight which was due to a faulty shuttle and short staffed rental service as if I was aware of airline policy! Even though I wanted to avoid all of lines to check in (only carry on bag) but all kiosk where out of service which why the lines where so long...the snide remarks and rude comments were not appreciated especially in front of other patrons, thank God another agent to assist me after the line agent moved me another customer up due to our flights."
Cons: "Flight canceled due to weather. ok, nobody's fault. But it was over an hour before a Frontier employee came to the gate to explain what was happening & why. He was rude, said not his fault (we know), unapologetic & said only to call the 800 number. For 20 to 30 minutes nobody got thru. Those that finally did were told the next available was Friday (a day & a half). All I got was to call back later. I didn't get my checked bag back until an hour & a half after scheduled departure. I couldn't try to find a different flight till after that. Their customer service was non-existent. MAJOR EPIC FAIL for FRONTIER AIR."
