There were no employees checking baggage until 4:30am despite there being several 6am flights. There were people truly worried as I was that I would miss my flight. They should’ve had employees working earlier to accommodate to their schedules.

Pros: "Crew was friendly"

Cons: "They ran out of food by the time they got to the back of the plane."
Pros: "Seats confort for nearly a 5 hours flights were ok. Entertainment system is working good."
Cons: "For a more than $800 ticket on a domestic flight: The flight could have been on time The food is not free and limited Entertainment system: the choice of programs and movies is a little bit too limited."
Cons: "Leave on time so passengers dont miss their connection flights My family of 7 people are stuck at the airport in Zurich with no connection flights until tomorrow to have to board on two additional flights Absolutely unacceptable Never again will we book flights with Delta."
Cons: "It was just the weather. I don't handle turbulence well. Delta crew was amazing as always."
Pros: "Was ultimately seated in Comfort+ even though I had an Economy ticket."
Cons: "Seat assignment with Economy ticket. More than willing to be asked to move for family seating, etc. Just feels nicer knowing you have an actual seat."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "I wish there was a way to access the delta movies in small planes that don’t have seat back entertainment"
Pros: "The booking in staff person was positive and friendly. I was disappointed that the system would not allow me to be placed on the upgrade list as a silver Velosity me mm ber partner to Delta."

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Friendly staff. Entertainment selection is impressive (though I didn't use it). Drinks and snacks are provided."
Cons: "Boarding process was time consuming due to poor organization from Delta. Unloading process takes forever for the same reason. Despite booking at the same time my fiancee and I didn't get seated next to one another."
Pros: "The staff was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "My husband and I could not fit in the seats without our shoulders being on top of each other. My shoulder was in the aisle way. I am 5’8 and my knees were up againstthe seat in front of me. Our flight from CVG to DFW had none of these problems."
Pros: "Staff were friendly. Nothing they could do about the maintenance issue that we experienced."
Cons: "Hour delay due to a maintenance issue. This was a hassle in and of itself, but the flight was also on New Year's Eve and ended up getting us to Buffalo about 20 minutes before midnight, which was a bit disappointing when I had made previous plans for the night. Also, I found the cabin to be very cold during the flight, but it was pretty short so I didn't complain."
Pros: "I was moved to an end Seat, as I was in constant leg pain."
Cons: "I was zitting against my Neighbor as the Seats are so narrow."
Cons: "Another delayed flight due to equipment problems"
Cons: "The flight dely 1 hour"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Boarding was fast and efficient, nobody bumrushed."
Cons: "The non-reclining seat right next to the bathroom door opening should not exist. I was miserable there; I swear everyone on the plane made sure to take a dump on this <2 hour flight. Also none of the windows on any of these small planes line up with the actual positions of seats and it sucks."
Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant"
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable, cabin was cold and no blankets available, food was just ok, plane had lots of empty seats yet everyone was squeezed into 3 in a row making it uncomfortable, no updates from captain or crew as to where we were in the flight....."
Cons: "My seat ,the distance to get to the gate, The wheelchair l No window The distance I had it walk to get to my seat I was told this was the row behind the break after the exit row. I was not I’ve been with you before and have not any of these problems No more"
Cons: "The attitude of the employees."
Pros: "The pilots were communicative of why and what the reasons were of delays as far as the landing and getting the plane to the gate."
Cons: "Attendants that offered drinks and snacks offered me coffee or water but didn’t offer a snack. But asked the girl next to me if she would want one. No consistency"
Pros: "Nothing.. the entire experience was horrible. Nasty seat. Had to get rebooked 3 times to finally get home but had to fly into a different airport and you also lost my bag so I have nothing to wear to my father's funeral."
Cons: "Everyrhing. the entire experience was horrible. Nasty seat. Had to get rebooked 3 times to finally get home but had to fly into a different airport and you also lost my bag so I have nothing to wear to my father's funeral"
Pros: "It was a short easy flight that actually landed early."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Delta personnel were very pleasant/friendly"
Pros: "Our flight attendants were lovely people specifically the first class attendant and he was humorous and witty, polite and friendly trying to make our christmas eve late night flight to be enjoyable."
Cons: "When we touched down in a blizzard we were told there was no jetway available and we had to climb down an icy ladder to walk probably 1000 feet on black ice barely seeing where we were going and at least one person fell and overall it was just very unprofessional and not the quality of service I expect from Delta."
Pros: "The entertainment unit allowed me to watch the Denver Broncos game live which helped lessen the delayed departure and uncomfortable seating."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating....too crowded!! We had a delayed departure by 30-40 minutes because of a computer download issue. Too many folks carrying carry-ons delayed boarding. I wish folks were not encouraged to go that route but to check baggage. This time of year gets even tougher with folks carrying Christmas presents and over sized personal items. Ugh. Not fun to travel this time of year."
Pros: "All the staff are sincere in serving. It must be a direct result of the great management at the top. If the employees were unhappy and rude that also would be a direct reflection of the management. I use the same flight often and let the staff know I appreciate them."
Cons: "Snacks are small, but delicious cookies."
Cons: "I paid extra to sit comfortably only to have the seat adjoining my occupied by someone who expanded over onto my seat! Leaving me barely any room to sit comfortably."
Pros: "I didn't like much about this flight."
Cons: "Flight left late. When we landed the sky bridge was broken so we had to walk outside, which isn't a big deal but it took a while sitting on the runway for the stairs to come. Then we proceeded to baggage claim and waited a few minutes and one of our 2 bags was there. The crew member then said "that's everything. If you're missing bags come see us." Well about 5 people on a small flight had to see them. My bag was stuck in JFK. I was told id have to come back to the airport tomorrow. At this point id been traveling for close to 24 hours. Im not a happy camper. I usually fly JetBlue and this has never happened with them. Delta acted like its a normal thing with them. I paid 25 dollars to check each bag. How can both my bags not reach their final destination together and how come this seems like a normal procedure for Delta. I paid you for a service and now I have to drive back to the airport or wait for you at home to deliver my bags whenever Delta feels like it. I probably won't fly Delta again unless I absolutely have to."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay and inoperative Sattelite TV"
Pros: "Service and staff"
Pros: "Business as usual and we actually arrived abit earlier than projected. Cudos to the pilot and crew."

Cons: "The plane and the atention"
Pros: "Good heads up to turbulence."
Pros: "Staff as always was very attentive and courteous. The board process proceeded smoothly and we were able to depart a few minutes early."
Cons: "One attendant did display a slight level of un-professionalism after spilling a drink on my mom and not apologizing. I chalk it up to her embarrassment and she probably just forgot."
Cons: "We we missed our connection they wouldn't help us at all."
Cons: "Not a fan of the distance between our arrival gate in ATL and connecting flight to BUF. Couldn't be helped, I suppose."
Pros: "Got us home super fast"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever had"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and understanding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 times, didn't land in ATL until almost 4 a.m. Still was charged for bags and when I called in to reschedule so I could get another nights sleep they said next flight wasn't until 10 the next day and there was charge for that. Also my flight from ATL to Boston earlier that week was delayed 3x. Overall not impressed with this connection. Meanwhile another flight to Boston from ATL left and I was not notified or selected for this change."
Pros: "On time great staff"
Cons: "Little cold"
Pros: "Turbulence didn't allow the beverage cart to serve passengers"
Pros: "Cookies"
Cons: "Space"
Pros: "As Scheduled, staff hospitality"
Cons: "+$25 extra each bag, seats not near travel companion"

On a321s the seat back of the person in front of us was giving us no room, there head was on our lap, seat should not go so far back also rows are too tight, JetBlue and southwest has more space on there planes

Cons: "80 minute delay"
Cons: "Boarding is always awkward on any airline. If you boarded back to front and deplaned front to back, time and aggravation would be reduced."
Pros: "New onboard entertainment"
Pros: "Even with the weather the flight made it out of Dallas and on to Philadelphia. I am guessing they had to switch crews but not much of a hiccup."
Pros: "On time flight, as comfortable as can be hoped for."
Cons: "This flight was on time, but Dallas to Huntsville is frequently delayed. Also, the airplane is often quite old-appearing on the interior."
Pros: "I was truly surprised by how smooth the entire experience was on this flight. The crew was excellent and the flight was on time!"

Pros: "Flight crew were visibly exhausted and nervous. WORST FLYING EXPERIENCE EVER. It's unfortunate that this leg of the trip was American Eagle. We paid a lot for these tickets."
Cons: "Flight crew were visibly exhausted and nervous. WORST FLYING EXPERIENCE EVER. It's unfortunate that this leg of the trip was American Eagle. We paid a lot for these tickets."
Pros: "flight left on time and went smoothly. Flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "person next to me did not fit in their seat and spilled over into mine. Could not even put armrest down - so i was sitting in less than a full seat.."
Cons: "."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for 35 minutes without a single announcement as to why there was a delay."
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: "Very late"
Pros: "The staff always looked like they were happy to help."
Cons: "Cold"
Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "Kept asking passengers pretty boarding to check luggage due to limited space...yet after we boarded there was at least 1 completely empty overhead compartment."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Seats are not roomy, but that's par for the course."
Cons: "No individual tv screens seems a little ridiculous for a nonstop 5 hour flight"
Pros: "A short flight, so quite comfortable"
Cons: "The food was awful. Fish was rubbery and smelled bad, eggs were a gloppy mess, everything was too salty."
Cons: "Late departure. Seats were double booked. Had to delay again to sort it out."
Pros: "Easier to board. Smaller plane so not as many people to climb over"
Cons: "Planes overall every airline are too tight but AA seemed better than others I've been on actually"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable, and my favorite on this aircraft - 3F on the MD80. Boarding was quick, and service was efficient once airborne."
Cons: "AA crews are skimping on pre-departure service, rarely offering PDBs (pre-departure beverages), or, when they do, half-assing it by putting water and OJ on a tray and making it clear nothing else is available as they did on this flight. It sets the expectations very low for the rest of the flight, and that's what happened."
Pros: "Overall good experience"
Cons: "Delayed almost an hour."
Pros: "AA is stepping there game up when it comes to entertainment. Newer planes have power surges, consistent wifi, and screens in the back of each seat loaded with games and movies."
Cons: "My flight was delayed prolonging my trip. Customer service was terrible. And, when I got to my final destination my checked luggage wasn't there. It took them over 24 hours to locate and return my luggage."
Pros: "We had a delay due to an equipment malfunction. They deboarded us so we didn't have to sit on a hot plane. That was greatly appreciated. The crew and gate personell in Cedar Rapids were very friendly and organized in getting us all back on the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "We made up time in the air to Dallas. We arrived early and waited about 15min. Due to another plane being in our gate."
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "You couldn't hear anything as people boarded."

Cons: "On time arrival."
Pros: "Crew and boarding"
Cons: "Seats are tiny"
Pros: "Delayed notifications"
Cons: "Hours of delays and no courtesy by airline."
Cons: "VERY close quarters."
Pros: "Delays were clearly communicated with ample time to make changes if necessary"
Cons: "TEEEEENY WEENY itty bitty plane - hard to be comfortable- but fortunately it was a short flight"
Cons: "I had to check my carry on from DEN to DSM because flight was full which I was told I could pickup at gate.. at the gate the TSA agent was very rude to me as I was confused as where my bag was, which I had to to baggage claim."
Pros: "First time didn’t sit on runway. Landed early"
Cons: "The United crew really needs an attitude check. How can someone be angry at 6 am?"
Cons: "The plane was not at the airport on time and when it caused us to miss the flight they blamed the weather instead of the plane not being at the airport on time. They were rude and refused to give hotel vouchers."
Pros: "Crew was nice, but could tell they were tired."
Cons: "Waited for late connecting flights almost 40 minutes (15-20 people). First class seats were like bricks - lower cushions need upgrade or replacement. Very hard landing including a good pavement “bounce”. Not what I would consider first class accomodations all around. 3 different baggage claim turnstiles until they finally got it right."
Cons: "Late"
Cons: "Such a downgrade from other airlines! Awful! They board backwards. Usually the back seats board on the plane after the special needs people. Makes more sense, people are out of the way. My water was poured into a cup from a big water battle. I like how Jetblue gives me a personal water bottle and a variety of snack option. I was given a "snack mix" on this flight which was not good. I hated this flight and there were NO televisions, or usb ports to charge phones. Never again. They didn't even have enough room for carry on bags for everyone. Thank god I packed light and didn't need to use that option. Good to know United Airlines has crappy everything."
Pros: "Friendly service,. On time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everybody was so friendly"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "Everyone was super nice and gelpful"
Pros: "Quick and easy. Nice crew."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Attitude of gate agent, crews. Boarding penalizes all but highest level and they've demoted me since the merger and erased my 30 year history with UAL. Watched them mishandle a paraplegic passenger until another passenger swapped seats. Last choice for me."
Cons: "Tight seats, full flights"
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours because they were waiting on an aircraft, which happens but no one to the time to explain or apologize even when asked. An apology goes a long way when you are stuck in an airport with every restaurant closing and you're hungry and tired. Definitely only flying delta or southwest from now on."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crowded, overbooked, made me check my carry on which made me miss my train. Took 4 flights to get to my final destination. Small seats, uncomfortable... list goes on and on"
Cons: "Cancelled flight. No true explanation. Lack of detail and delay caused me to miss other flight opportunities."
Cons: "The airplane needed to be swapped, which caused an hour delay and made me miss my flight"
Pros: "I didn't like much. The employees were great and that's about it!"
Cons: "I've only flown with United for four flights. And of those four flights they have been delayed for three of them. To be specific about this flight, straight off the bat the flight was late due to a late arriving plane.. Understandable. Then to top it off they had no pilot. So then the 1.5 hour delay has now turned into a four hour wait. But I'm still waiting for the flight so the wait could be even longer yet. The airline should consider refunding everyone's money on this flight. An hour delay is one thing, but four hours is uncalled for. Never flying with United again."
Pros: "I loved it"
Pros: "Cheap flight no problem."
Pros: "Staff was ok."
Pros: "At least I made it"
Cons: "Flight attendant for United 426 to Chicago was rude, flight delayed and they weren't very helpful"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lack of updates"
Cons: "Small seats. They r making problem cause of small camera bag and the plain was half empty!"
Pros: "Everything's on time"
Cons: "No,"
Cons: "Crowded."
Pros: "A little snack going with the beverage service. The wifi was cheaper than Air Canada's."
Cons: "Minimum legroom, entertainment system is not on demand and u have to pay for that...Wifi is way slower than the one on Air Canada. Also, boarding was very chaotic and the gate agent seems really not wanna work there."
Cons: "Flight was more than an hour late. My bags came back in terrible shape. One of them got torn"
Cons: "The snack"
Pros: "Flight on time, no delays or problems"
Cons: "Seating for midgets"
Cons: "About two hours before my flight, it was canceled after previously making an airplane switch the night before after checking in online. The I received an email while I was on the way to the airport saying that the airplane that I was going to fly out on was canceled due to airplane maintenance. While I am happy they didn't fly the plane while needing maintenance, they should have planned ahead and known of the maintenance or had a backup ready to go. Obviously it must have been something they just found, but in the big picture of things. You have to pay an way to much for a flight as it is. They should have to solve their own issues to honor their part of the contract. We (as customers) can't cancel a flight with out penalties. Why shouldn't they have to do the same?"
Cons: "There were parts of this trip that were out of your control- for instance, the weather. Most people are very understanding of the fact that flights were cancelled or delayed because of this, but members of the UA were short with customers, making unprofessional facial expressions at people who were stressed out because they were trying to reach their destinations, and some staff was even ignoring customers in a long line to have personal conversations with one another or texting on their cell phone."
Pros: "Seating arrangement"
Cons: "The delay and the worry of the door condition"
Pros: "On the trip from Des Moines to Houston, timeliness of flight was great. The boarding went smooth and was done quickly. The crew were friendly and courteous. Overall the first half of the trip was fine."
Cons: "I was extremely disappointed in the condition of my luggage when I picked it up plane side. The wheel was broke off and all the pockets had been unzipped and it appeared they had been rummaged through. I had to drag my bag through the terminal. I spoke with 3 individuals with United who referred me onto the next and each unwilling as the previous to help. I myself am in customer service and would never treat my customers the way I was treated by the employees representing your Airline. I would go above and beyond to make the sure that the customers experience was a great one in spite of the unfotunate incident so they would return. I have never flown United before, and I will not consider your airline in the future."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I paid extra money for our seats so we cud sit together N I ended up on the front of the plane N my boyfriend clear in the back I'll never fly United again y the hell did I pay almost 25$ per seat to sit together to sit on opposite ends of the plane"
Pros: "On time, quick on and off. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Very small carry-on baggage capacity. Had to surrender in jetway."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Pros: "Everything was great, no waits, and right on time!"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "That the flight was on time. disenchanted flight attendants. Makes you want to not need her assistance."
Cons: "Disenchanted flight attendants. For whatever reason, it is obvious that there is unhappiness. Not flat affect, just the look of disinterest, a look that tells you I don't care. In a customer based business it is so disheartening that the very person you may have to depend on to survive is not vested in the clientele that keeps her company in business, thereby insuring future paychecks. I'd like to communicate here that it wasn't all the attendants on either flight, but enough that it was obvious to anyone who paid even casual attention. I was flying home to California, so there were two additional flights a few days before the flights home. I never had any of the same flight attendants on any of the flight. As far as my observation of the attendants, as stated above, I think that speaks volumes. I will cite an example that happened on my trip from Iowa to Denver. I need wheelchair assistance, I walk with a cane, but not able to walk any distance. I pack a light carry-on, bring my purse, jacket and cane. I was being wheeled up the passageway in a regular wheelchair, and the man pushing me stated to the on-coming crew he "would be right back to get my suitcase, couldn't take both at the same time", and added " unless one of you could roll it up?". After an embarrassing pause, a female flight attendant said "Let the flight attendant do it. Add this to the list of responsibilities that aren't really my job." I actually twisted around to look at this person, I was so stunned to hear that! She grabbed my rolling carry-on handle and the look spoke columns. I was embarrased. Thank you. Debra K. Forsythe"
Cons: "While people were waiting on delay their was no effort made to get people seat locations. When time to board their was a line of 30 people getting new seat location before they could board the plane. A seat location I had for 3 months and checked in Ft. Myers 8 hours earlier was occupied so I was told very rudely to get in line behind 30 people to get new seat location. It took over an hour to board plane before take off. There was non English speaking customers who received no help boarding plane finding seats because crew was laughing joking with other passenger. They tried to put a non English speaking passenger in exit row. I paid $25 to check a bag to find passengers getting free bag checking at gate."
Pros: "Courtesy"
Pros: "I wrote my review above"
Cons: "Obnoxious crew, repeating the same instructions over and over. No food, no entertainment. Short flight though."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane smelled like someone had recently vomited inside, there was no air blowing on the plane and it was very hot. Lastly, the bathroom wasn't equipt with a working sink which is completely unsanitary."
Pros: "Speed, this airline is on a mission. I like that."
Cons: "Just keep it simple"
Pros: "I hate frontier! Never drive with them!"
Cons: "I find it very frustrating that I get this great deal and get charged for EVERYTHING. Bags...drinks...snacks. I mean not even a cookie or pretzels? In the end I’m paying for a budget flight where I would have been treated like a valued customer."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for more than three hours and for my inconvenience a $50 voucher !!!"
Pros: "It was a quick flight."
Cons: "The crew was obnoxious. They spent the whole time talking about work loudly, sometimes rude, and laughing hysterically. It was hard to rest."
Pros: "Crew was great, friendly, and accommodating."
Cons: "Seats do not recline, could have better snacks!!"
Pros: "The flight was ok, nothing outstanding. Ordinary uneventful flight."
Cons: "Lots of extra costs for baggage, seats, drinks and snacks, not experienced with other airlines. One of the hardest landings I’ve ever experienced. Perfect weather and no wind to speak of so not sure what happened there."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed, uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Crew was fun, family oriented"
Cons: "Entertainment options, complimentary tea and coffee"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "No three hour delay"
Pros: "The ground crew was rude, the desk people were even less helpful and acted like I was a burden to them by asking qurstions"
Cons: "Frontier could have sucked less"
Pros: "Fairly comfortable seating"
Cons: "It would be nice to have complimentary coffee. $3.00 for 6oz of coffee is a bit much,"
Pros: "Crew was super friendly."
Cons: "It would be nice to offer non alcoholic beverages for free."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "It was difficult hearing when the captain was giving announcements."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Was on the runway for 3 hours waiting to take off while in fort Myers"
Pros: "We were originally delayed by about 30 minutes due to a lack of a pilot. Another was called in and we still got to our destination on the other side of the country on time - amazing!"
Pros: "Attendants were nice"
Cons: "Seats are hard, late plane, over an hour late"
Pros: "Perfect price, great crew, Wonderful overall experience."
Cons: "A little cramped and you should be more upfront about a dumb fee of $45 for a carry on. I thought I was getting a good deal on a flight but I guess I was wrong. I will probably fly with an airline that doesn’t charge you for something that should be free from now on"
Pros: "Service friendly. Pilot funny. Clean. Average comfort."
Cons: "Cost for baggage. Too much."
Cons: "They should start boarding from the rear of the plane to the front so that people sitting in back don't have to wait for people in the front or middle of the plane to stow their bags."
Pros: "Direct flight is great. Price very good if you Don’t need to bring luggage ."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating. Long flights would Not be good"
Pros: "The crew was good and the the seats were semi comfortable. The price round trip was good."
Cons: "4 hour delay going to our destination because of a "scheduling issue" Unacceptable. We almost missed our car rental. Also, on a side note, Do not use Fox Rent a Car in Orlando, our car had mechanical issues and there was also blood splatter on the roof, disgusting! And going home we were scheduled to be on time and we were boarded on time and about to leave the gate and they told us that they found a dent in the plane which later on we found out was a hole in the engine. So we were taken off the plane and wasn't for another 4 hours that we got another plane. Overall not impressed. We did receive a 100 dollar voucher each for both delays but honestly would never use this airline again."
Cons: "Had the AC cranked. Asked for a blanket and the attendant laughed like airplanes never carry those."
Pros: "Everything went as planned"
Cons: "Frontier has absurd baggage fees."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service during delays"
Pros: "This crew was a lot friendlier the the crew that I flew out with. They had smiles on their faces and no attitudes unlike the first crew from BUFFALO to Fort Myers. This crew makes me want to fly again with this airline. The other crew had me questioning my decision to fly with this company at all."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Was nice that they waited for a couple passengers instead of closing the door on the dot. The stewardess were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I would have really liked WiFi and some healthy food options. They were out of the beef jerky and everything else was even more unhealthy. The flight was full and felt pretty tight and crowded."
Pros: "Seats"
Cons: "Paying for water"
Pros: "on-time flight, easy boarding, friendly staff, flight duration announcement (I like to know how long the flight time will be wheels up to wheels down)."
Cons: "the seats didn't recline and were uncomfortable. I also didn't like paying $80 round-trip for a small carry-on"
Pros: "The staff was so kind and made the trip fun, very fast flight but so enjoyable. I honestly will not fly another airline if frontier is available. And best of all it was inexpensive... other flights were pushing 500$ and I got this ticket for 200$ overall great experience!!"
Cons: "Only thing was I couldn't buy a drink with cash which is all I had on me but I think that's every airline so nothing frontier specific :)"
Pros: "Easy"
Cons: "Prices change quickly"
Pros: "We were boarded quickly, ahead of schedule and were able to reach destination almost a half hour ahead of time. Nice crew, plane clean"
Cons: "This is not just Frontier - it is a BIGGER passengers trying to sit in constantly shrinking seat widths and leg room. I sat next to a very nice BIG person that was in my seat with me....had to keep the armrest up to allow them to fit. I know your bottom line is profit - so shrinking the passenger seat/room when the population as a whole is expanding makes flying overall a not good experience. I am waiting for you all to officially charge us for Cain air seperately."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "Seat was not uncomfortable"
Cons: "Mechanical problem and delay and no option to bring another plane or crew in or have us fly another airline to destination. Flight delayed in stages till 19 hours later it did leave."
Pros: "Terrible. The charge extra for everything: $40 for a carryon bag, $11 to reserve a seat, $3.99 for a soda."
Cons: "Charged more for carry on than checked no entertainment"
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The baggage fee was too high."
Pros: "People"
Cons: "Concourse changes last minute and not communicated..."
Pros: "The no-frills (cheap) pricing."
Cons: "We had about a 3 hour delay with no explanation. The tickets told us to be there for boarding at the normal time though, so we were essentially threatened with missing the flight and had to hang out in the airport for several hours. The seats don't lie back at all, and the airline is very basic. Then again, you get what you pay for and we were expecting that."
Pros: "The crew was nice, and the plane was clean."
Cons: "I purchased my ticket at a good price but if you didn't watch all of the catchy add-ons you were paying a much higher price. That is why you must always read the fine print. It was almost impossible to check in online as I had to keep starting over not sure why."
Cons: "The luggage took forever to come out and caused me to miss a bus"
Pros: "#dicksoutforharambe"
Cons: "#neverforget"
Pros: "The flight crew was alright."
Cons: "Did not like that everytime I fly the flight is delayed, usually by a lot."
Cons: "Two hour delays on both flights"
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Over 6 hours of delays - about 45 minutes in the plane waiting for a gate, the rest waiting for the flight to arrive. The worst part is not a single person offered any kind of explanation - no one in the airport and no one on the plane. When do you ever wait 5 1/2 hours for a meeting and receive no explanation for the delay? Inexcusable. Frontier will always be my very last resort from now on."
Pros: "Good efficient staff, newer aircraft, comfortable seats"
Cons: "cramped seating, no food/beverages at all, attempts to get more money for seats during on-line check-in. It seemed deceitful, set up to make people think they had to upgrade or they wouldn't get a seat."
Cons: "late departure late arrival sat on tarmac 40 minutes"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When we checked our bags it cost me and my friend $125.00 dollars to check our bags what a never fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Is it really that desperate that airlines have to charge $2 for soda?"
