Cons: "connecting flight left without 1/6th of its passengers. Stuck at airport now because of Deltas laziness"

Pros: "Not one of my good experiences with Delta. Two hours delay in the flight"
Cons: "Information on the flight delay as communication was. at least very poor. Also A 220 was ok but First Class was so so"

Pros: "Very nice, pleasant crew."
Cons: "Extended turbulence was very uncomfortable. One toilet out of service. Otherwise good flight."

Pros: "There were a few hiccups with the overall flight process, but the crew was very friendly and informed everyone in a timely manner of the situation. There were also good snacks. Also, flexible baggage policy, which was great."
Cons: "The boarding situation is odd and less organized or structured than any of the other airlines I've flown with."

Pros: "Crew was awesome. Very respectful and helpful"
Cons: "Food options"

Pros: "Got to Houston on time"
Cons: "WiFi that I paid for on Delta didn't work, flight was delayed at take off due to waiting for restroom supplies; lead flight attendant had a major accent and was difficult to understand. She also stated to keep my mother's walker outside the plane when entering the plane"

Cons: "It was just the weather. I don't handle turbulence well. Delta crew was amazing as always."

Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "Bathrooms were filthy"

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: "Very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should have be provided at check in."

Cons: "Wifi was not working"

Cons: "gate agent said I could check my bags at door of plane -nobody was waiting there so I asked flight attendant & he was very rude to me wouldn’t help me & didn’t tell me where to hang up my coats when I asked / not my fault plane boarded 25 min late"

Cons: "Old plane, long delay, sketchy WiFi."

Pros: "Excellent hospitality I asked for a cup of coffee at an odd time, the attendant went out of his way to brew fresh pot and served me, instead of just saying "Sorry sir, we don't have any coffee at this time....""

Pros: "Flight itself was fine. Captain was very communicative about rough air. 757-300's are amazingling noisy; recommend headphones for a relaxing flight."
Cons: "Could not login to Delta app at MCO to show boarding pass. Had to return to a kiosk to print paper passes. Very aggravating but lesson learned to always have a paper backup. Boarding was disorganized and not by priority. Gate agents allowed passengers bull rush the gate and allowed line cuts. They lost control."

Pros: "Everything clicked from the start"
Cons: "This flight always arrived 25-30 minutes early...why cant delta post the correct arrival times?? My first class priority boxes did not come off first but near last and wet!? Bad handling but at least within the 20 minutes!"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The flight attendants was very rude & keep harassing me about my emotional support dog, I was a real animal hater, the complaint is to long to list here, never experienced such a rude flight attendant in all my years of flying , I filed a official complaint with delta."

Cons: "Put me on an Aeromexico plane without a seat. When I went to get seat assignments she gave me very last seat with a “window” she said. There was no window. I was absolutely closterphobic"

Cons: "Crew"

Pros: "Friendliness of flight attendants"
Cons: "I wasn't awake long enough to find fault"

Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The flight was incredibly uncomfortable. The Delta team in Houston was not very pleasant."

Pros: "Food and service was nice"
Cons: "Very long route to my final destination"

Pros: "Nice flight attendants"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic and very helpful."
Cons: "Not sure who was in charge of loading the plane with food for purchase, but they forgot it all entirely. The crew was kind enough to give extra snacks. Kinda curious how you forgot to load a plane with food for purchase and how did the crew not notice in advance? I would think that is one of their checks of the cabin. Not mention who ever signed off saying they filled the plane with food for purchase lied. Very frustrating not only for the crew but for the passengers."

Cons: "No issues. Smooth ride. Decent service."

Cons: "I couldn’t watch a movie and I couldn’t fall asleep because the the person in front of me had a light on."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Late bumby ride"

Pros: "CVG isn't a huge airport, but it has a good amount of things to keep you entertained/well fed."
Cons: "CVG security line isn't terrible, but there seemingly is ALWAYS a decent wait. When a flight is full, like this one, it's never very comfortable – even a short flight."

Cons: "1 hour delay, no explanation, no weather problems, late for my meeting in Houston."

Cons: "The Cancun airport provides a terrible experience for transferring between flights, especially if you need to change from the international terminal to a domestic terminal or vice-versa. There is no way to get between terminals inside security and the free shuttle is slow and overcrowded. Meanwhile, one is forced to run a gauntlet of taxi and shuttle drivers trying to get you to pay them exorbitant fees to drive you to your terminal. Once you finally arrive you discover that there is no dedicated baggage recheck for an international arrival. Just don't buy a ticket that transfers in CUN."

Pros: "The gate agent and cabin crew handled passenger's misery with friendly grace and professionalism. Also, it was an old plane and so the seats, even in coach, were comfortable."
Cons: "Plane was around 45 minutes late in arriving at our Minneapolis gate. Flight was further delayed by something (unspecified) being "frozen." WORST part was that the temperature in the seating area at the gate was horribly cold. Departing passengers at a neighboring gate were bound for Fargo and sat with their parkas on and with parka hoods up. We Houston-bound had packed our coats & boots and were shivering. Then when we finally boarded the crew announced that the plane's water system was broken and so we would have no hot coffee or hot tea or hot anything. No water, also and obviously, in the restroom sink. But sani-wipes were provided in the sink basin."

Pros: "Quick flight, great landing and takeoff."
Cons: "Everything was great today."

Cons: "After waiting patiently through a 3 hour delay we were inbound to Minneapolis. We were set to arrive at 9:45 pm and there were multiple 10 pm connections. Delta flew into the furthest gate away, didn't communicate with the connecting flights to give it 5 more minutes and didn't have transportation waiting to bring us top our connections. After ruining across the entire length of the MSP concourse I arrived at 9:58 only to be told they already left. Worst communication I've ever seen. Delta should be ashamed."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Early morning flights .. the People are not aware and awake"

Pros: "Service and staff"

Pros: "Could not use the bathroom"

Pros: "Business as usual and we actually arrived abit earlier than projected. Cudos to the pilot and crew."

Cons: "After more than an hour on the tarmac.. would be nice to have water availatfor passengers."

Pros: "Same"
Cons: "Same"

Cons: "Delayed by an hour!"

Cons: "Late taking off, and then unable to get to gate on arrival"

Pros: "On time great staff"
Cons: "Little cold"

Pros: "As Scheduled, staff hospitality"
Cons: "+$25 extra each bag, seats not near travel companion"

Pros: "Every thing except food!"
Cons: "Not enough food provided by airline!"

Pros: "The delta employees kept us informed of what was going on with the jetway which had broken. Despite the chaotic boarding, we arrived at our destination on time! Way to go! I do love delta."
Cons: "Due to the construction in the airport, there is a small area for this group of people to be ready to board, therefore, it was very difficult to move or get around, Suggest that employees give more instructions about boarding procedures and suggest that people line up accordingly in the right order. They should explain the order of entry, and ask for people who are the last group to stay back so that those who board first are allowed through."

Pros: "First flight was not sold out which allowed me to change seats"

Pros: "Average crew. The seat became comfortable after complaining that the one I requested was not noted on passenger request or should I say begging for the request."
Cons: "Listen to the passenger."

Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Power in the airplane to charge phones. A form of entertainment would have been nice"

Cons: "The flight was delayed and then stuck on runway for over an hour. No air at 3 am"

Cons: "Has been sitting in hot airplane on runway for over an hour with no reasonable updates when we finally get out"

Cons: "The crew was not friendly. Rude tone."

Cons: "Because of 12 hr between original flight and this flight, we drive"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Only thing that was good was tail wind."
Cons: "The plane was so small and tight. And they sat me next to 260lbs x football player in this tiny plane. Not really your fault but a plane that size is just too small esp when your neighbor is double your size."

Cons: "My original flight was delayed then we had to spend the night in Dallas."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No legroom in 17 E"

Pros: "Crew members. After a long time I got to see some friendly cabin crew members."
Cons: "Boarding was little delayed. But that's alright."

Cons: "I could not get the Wi-Fi to work even though I paid for 24 hours of it there was a different Wi-Fi Carrier on this flight than the flight from Munich to Philadelphia, he did not recognize me and even the free shows I could not get to work it had 3 different site said it told me the log in to in none of them work on my cell."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Once aboard, LATAM is actually quite impressive. The logistical part of the company is horrendous, but the service onboard is exemplar."
Cons: "LATAM changed my itinerary without my authorization and despite my clear verbal directions to NOT change it. The airline took directions from a corrupt official with the Colombian immigration office and cancelled my return flights. I was forced to purchase an additional ticket, travel on and separate flight from my wife and children. I then had to spend several hours waiting to resolve the case in person. The customer service at LATAM is a joke. If I'd received this treatment in the United States, I would have filed a lawsuit for their infringement on my rights and collaboration with the discriminatory practices of the Colombian immigration office in Bogota."

Cons: "This was my final connection from a long flight, we did a line to check in and get our boarding passes, when we got to the gate I found out I didn’t have a seat number asigned but husband did, they gave me one there but of course it was not next to my husband, it was the last seat available at the end next to restroom. The smell coming out from the it was so disgusting even before th first person went in, they should do something to improve the cleaness in the restroom between flights. It would probably take them 30 more minutes to do so, and I would not mind waiting for it even if this was my final flight after 15+ hours."

Cons: "I STILL HAVE NOT LEFT RIC!!!!"

Pros: "The people I spoke to on the customer service line and then especially at the service desk in Miami were able to help me get a sooner flight so I didn’t have to be driving home until the wee morning. I am VERY grateful to them and American Airlines policies which empower its employees to assist its customers."
Cons: "There seemed to be some passive aggressiveness present on the flight to Houston. Passengers seemed to be defying in small ways orders from the staff, standing etc. The staff responded quite severely in my opinion, repeating the safety video to everyone’s annoyance because some passengers were talking out loud."

Cons: "AA lost put my checked baggage onto a different flight during my layover in Philly to my final destination. After losing my baggage, it took them over 24 hours to return it to me, telling me that it would only be "another hour" till they would deliver it to my house. No airline is perfect, but I don't like being lied to about my baggage not being transferred properly to my final flight, nor do appreciate how they kept giving me vague estimates and round-a-bout answers about my checked bag which they lost in the first place. If I can help it, I will never fly with American Airlines again; they have lost my business!"

Pros: "Bad bad"
Cons: "Bad bad"

Pros: "It was a good flight"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Delayed, old aircraft, no food, no entertainment"

Pros: "Not much, the flight attendants were fine"
Cons: "They boarded the plane for the ‘on-time departure’ scam, then proceeded to do maintenance for 30 minutes, then when you think your on your way we wait another 15 minutes for takeoff. We spent more time sitting still than we did in motion. Horrible."

Cons: "Delayed 2hrs"

Cons: "I'm not a large man. I shouldn't need to fold my arms to keep from bumping into and intruding on my neighbors."

Pros: "Timely and comfortable flight!"

Cons: "Missed flight"

Pros: "Cookie"
Cons: "Flight delayed"

Cons: "Boarding was delayed 30 minutes, with no explanation. Upon arrival, another airplane was in our gate, resulting in an additional 30 minute wait, buckled in my seat on the tarmac."

Pros: "It was a small plane so I didn't expect much. The attendants were a little disconnected for it being a three hour flight."

Cons: "."

Pros: "Seats were better padded than that of the previous flight. There was sufficient leg room for a short flight. Seats actually allowed for passengers to adjust back of seats."
Cons: "Space is very limited between neighborning seats."

Cons: "When the flight was on time, we learned it was overbooked. Agents stated that if people would not willingly accept their offer to fly at a later time random people would be denied boarding. This was a stressful element as there was no other flight that could make me arrive on time. Plus, threatening to deny boarding to paying customers for airline related overbooking does not seem like a fair or good business practice. Then there were mechanical issue with the plane. After waiting over an hour for repairs they realized they needed a new air craft. This further delayed the flight. Not only was the flight extremely delayed at this pint but throughout the waiting time we were given very little information and were constantly told they couldn't give us an approximate time of departure. This was extremely rude and makes the experience of dealing with a delay even worse. I would suggest giving us more information about what is happening. Saying we don't know when the flight will leave is just unacceptable. To make matters even worse after we were finally boarded we had to wait an additional 40 minutes sitting inside the plane while they boarded refreshments! I know there are delays in flights but this same thing happened to my flight on my way to Paris and it caused me to miss my international connection and had to be re-routed."

Cons: "Very late"

Cons: "Average airline compared to Singapore & MZ airlines"

Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Cabin was cold and no blankets available."

Pros: "Everythinf was great, First time flying with them and I would do it again."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "I was traveling with a pet and they were very kind and helpful to me."

Pros: "The seats in this flight were quite roomy."
Cons: "Delayed and canceled flights with no apologies or explanations, rude crews who scoffed at complaints or requests of other passengers, lost baggage that took hours to recover, again without apology....I would rather pay a bit more than fly with American again, at least until these memories fade a bit."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Ther"
Cons: "Carry On : crew did not help me find a spot for my carrying on. An older man actually found me a spot It was on this leg ( not the La Guardia to Chatlotte ) that the food tray kept opening after trying to close them ( old latches ) US airlines flight attendants don't understand how to talk to travellers . Asian airlines have excellent flight attendants"

Cons: "This is a tiny plane and without warning they wouldn't let me carry on my carry on bag which would have fit just fine...it fit in their luggage test."

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: "30 min delay+ poor service+ uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "I arrived at the airport and the guy wouldn't let me board my flight so I lost my money. Im a new person that just started flying. I did like this Carrier but as of yesterday I'd rather use Delta for now on. So im still at home and didnt get a chance to make it to work."

Pros: "It was excelle thanks to you"

Pros: "My flight arrived a few minutes late but they made sure I made the connection."

Cons: "I was put on the 8:10 flight to Houston. That flight was delayed 4 times and I didn't leave Charlotte until 11:40pm. Terrible service all around."

Cons: "They could have told me more than 24 hours before my flight that they changed me to a different flight 4 hours earlier in the day!"

Pros: "Boarding seemed smother than usual. I had an issue with a large back pack that wouldn't fit in the overhead due to a smaller plane travelling to Houston from Des Moines, Flight attendant was extremely helpful as it was expensive camera equipment and was able to stow it so that i didn't have to check it at the door. Most appreciated their sensitivity."

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: "Nada"
Cons: "You delayed my flight and notified with me through email but did not provide any solution whatsoever for the connecting flight I was about to lose. Had I not checked my email when I did and taken immediate action, I wouldn't have made it to my final destination when I NEEDED TO BE. It's simply inconsiderate on your behalf."

Cons: "They tried to charge me 25 to check in"

Cons: "Seat in back of plane from Houston to Tampa horrible seats would not incline foot space barely big enough for legs <9 inches. Those seats should never be assigned I feel like I wasted $ by the horrible seating!"

Cons: "Too much Delays"

Pros: "Pilot was very nice!! Co-pilot too!!!"

Cons: "Everythi"

Pros: "Row 10, extra couple of inches is far more civilized."
Cons: "Didn't have the United app downloaded in time, so couldn't use the WiFi. No alternative."

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"

Pros: "Offered free beverages 5 times and was given a free snack. Everyone was very nice. Flight arrived 30 minutes early and was very smooth and comfortable"
Cons: "Security lady said I could leave my shoes on( I'm 73). Man at scanner made me take them off."

Cons: "Professionalism and friendly staff"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "My seat was randomly switched from my first selection and I got a horrible seat and was unable to regain my original seat selection. Very uncomfortable seating. The staff was nice, but not overly friendly."

Cons: "Had purchased a round-trip ticket. While in D.C. on a family trip to bury my mother in Arlington National Cemetery, my brother had a massive heart attack. After 3 weeks, he was stable enough to come back to Houston on an air ambulance. As I travelled with him on the air ambulance, I was unable to use the return portion of my round-trip ticket. I provided documentation of the situation and requested a refund. I received $106 on a $715 ticket. There was no explanation of how they determined the refund, but I'm not happy."

Pros: "Using Kayak was so convenient. They were great in keeping me informed of schedule & gate changes."

Pros: "Pilot did exceptional job with rough weather heading into Houston."
Cons: "With everyone carrying on baggage, someone mid plane to help would be beneficial."

Pros: "The flight was on time and a good pilot."
Cons: "Until bathrooms and crew area. One of the flight attendants was not friendly at all and my sit did not lay back."

Pros: "The the atensents were very helpful."
Cons: "Room too small for such a long flight"

Pros: "My flight was cancelled and I was pleased with how it was resolved. Thank you!"

Pros: "Nothing. Due to weather delays, there should have been a much better approach to resolvong the problem. Customer service was horrible"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The worse trip. the last 8 people in check in was off on the air plane ."

Pros: "The breakfast was great"
Cons: "The headrest video screens need a button to turn them off. I almost went crazy for 4 1/2 hours watching the recurrent 30 second (maybe 60) clip advertising the same silliness. It was like torture. Also, why should we have to pay for a movie or a TV program? The whole idea with that is to sooth the anxiety and discomfort of being hostage to a seat without any degree of comfort. That plane was the worst. My tailbone was screaming after 30 minutes. Sure doesn't make me inspired to be a return flyer. Brent W. Mueller MD"

Cons: "Flight left almost two hours late, missed connecting flight, alternate flight cancelled, United Club wouldn't pass-holders in club. Had to sleep in airport."

Cons: "I waiting from 9:00 morning until tomorrow 8:00. 24 hours for cancelled this's so crazy and long time and I still waiting for another flight"

Pros: "Good friendly crew"
Cons: "Old plane, poor seats (even in First), no entertainment or wifi."

Cons: "The snacks were horrible. And the fact you get a sip of a drink makes no sense."

Pros: "Very kind employees, was able to get last minute tickets at a reasonable price, entertainment on the first flight"

Cons: "Many alerts in my e-mail."

Pros: "Seats were okay as far as comfort level"
Cons: "This flight was overbooked. I had to be back at work the next day, so I really needed to take it. The gate agents wouldn't tell me what was going on, only that the flight was overbooked and that they were "trying to get me a seat." I stood there while all of the groups boarded, waiting for my ticket. I was the last person given a ticket. By the time I finally got to board, all overhead space was taken, so I had to gate check my bag. And then someone had taken the seat I was given, so I had to ask him to move, and he started crying (child). He cried for 20 minutes, so that was fun. Also, this was a red eye - I really wanted to sleep, but right as I was dozing off, the flight attendants turned on the lights for drink service. Overall, just a really poor experience and very hard to sleep."

Cons: "The snacks where gross."

Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "The flight got delay because of that I had problems at customs and immigration"

Pros: "The flight crew was nice"

Pros: "Great service and smooth flight."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful and accommodating for a mother traveling with 2 minor children"
Cons: "Absolutely no space on this plane. The least amount of leg room and seat room I've ever experienced."

Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, plane old and shabby and staff unfreindly and unhelpful."

Pros: "I had lots of room, the flight was great"

Pros: "Easy boarding process"
Cons: "Not enough legroom"

Pros: "I liked the fact that United Airlines crew members at the gate and on the plane waited for all the passengers who were stuck at TSA because of the airport's issue with staffing. They were extremely accommodating and didn't seem bothered at either the gate or when I boarded."
Cons: "I understand it was a short flight but seemed like the 2 attendants were stressed with trying to have enough time for drinks. Maybe add a 3rd person. Also snacks should still be part of the flight even if it's less than a hour. We are getting a drink...why not add something like nuts"

Pros: "Easy,smooth ride, thank you"

Pros: "Service and price"

Cons: "When about to get on plane, carry on taken to checked bags; 5 people already on plane were required to come back off and check bags. I begged not to have to check because I was flying to Nicaragua and was worried my only bag would get lost. I was right -- it did not arrive in Nicaragua until the next day. We sat on runway for 45 minutes before departure so United could fix BOTH sets of the plane's wings lights. Why did they not discover that at any time BEFORE we all boarded or while we were boarding -- NOT first when deciding to pull away from gate. Delay caused many to miss connections."

Pros: "Staff was awesome!!!!"

Pros: "Loved the ability to watch movies, and to be able to plug in and charge my electronic device. Very nice plane everything was in pristine condition. Crew was outstanding and professional. I didn't eat anything on the plane so I can't really give my opinion."
Cons: "I wasn't assigned a seat until I got to the gate and I ended up with a middle seat even though the flight was not completely booked. Several other passengers in my situation took it upon themselves to take the aisle seats once we started to depart the gate without asking the crew members."

Pros: "There were no delays."

Pros: "Lack of turbulence"
Cons: "It's a domestic flight on a budget airline. There is plenty to not like."

Pros: "Seats"
Cons: "Paying for water"

Pros: "The crew was great, the flight itself was nice. The pilot landed the plane beautifully and we made up lost time somewhere along the route. There were lots of people working to get our bag checked quickly and the young lady who helped us was very friendly. She gave us directions to our gate before we could even ask. I will definitely fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and we didn't get much information as to why or how long for quite a while."

Pros: "That I'm finally home"
Cons: "The entire experience"

Pros: "Fare was affordable The flight was on time"
Cons: "Baggage charges cor carry on were unexpected. We expected charges for checked baggage but not carry on! It was our first time to travel with frontier and we were unprepared. There were six of us (family) and each with carry on baggage. We were shocked upon arriving at the counter that we will be paying extra. Anyway, charge to experience. Overall the flight was fine."

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"

Cons: "I never took this flight. It was cancelled but u continued to keep sendimg me emails about check in .i never was chatged as far as i know . So very poor. My flight out of san antonio with frontier airlines was awful!!"

Pros: "Very nice"
Cons: "Did not like that you get a good price on your flight but have to pay for every little thing!"

Pros: "Easy"
Cons: "Prices change quickly"

Pros: "The space between the seats is decent. Inside the plane is new and clean. The crews are nice and friendly. Captain is excellent."

Pros: "The airplane was clean."
Cons: "The seats were not reclinable and for a 3.5 hour flight in which I wanted to get in some sleep I was unable to sleep. Also the seats were very narrow and with almost no padding. I could feel the padding had wore off and my back was touching with the metal of the seat. Add all that up together and instead of a regular airplane seat it was like seating on a rigid chair for 3.5 hours. Moreover, since I couldn't sleep I decided to at least get in some work, but then I realized that the tray was so tiny that it can't even fit the smallest of laptops... I know it is a low cost airline, but paying for carry ons, checked bags, selecting seats and on flight beverages is plenty for a low cost airline. Frontier doesn't need to top it off with the most new uncomfortable seats possible. At least with Ryanair the seats are more comfortable, you can bring a carry on at no cost and the flight ticket is cheaper."

Cons: "Great flight"

Pros: "Seats are confortable"
Cons: "Food and drinks are expensive"

Pros: "The ride home"
Cons: "The 4 hour delay that received once we arrived at 4:30 AM to catch our 6 o'clock flight home to find out it had been delayed until 9:28 AM. Once we were on the plane we were then told we would be delayed until 10 AM. Flying with two children was difficult for a four hour delay. However front tier did give us all $10 food vouchers and $50 vouchers each for our next flight. Once we landed in Houston we then sat on the tarmac for another hour waiting for the gate open. The plane did have mechanical issues which caused the delay but still the notice given was always last minute"

Pros: "On time. Priced low. Staff professional, friendly."

Pros: "Easy booking, check in, luggage check."
Cons: "No water served. Seat selection expensive."

Pros: "No one got hurt and the flight was cheap."
Cons: "We landed 30 minutes early but it was an hour before we got off the plane. It was frustrating and a waste of travel time. I'd be concerned about booking connecting flights with them if this is typical. Or any flight that becomes an hour longer for no real reason."

Pros: "The cleanliness and newness of the plane and the price of the flight! It's like I stepped into a bran new 2017 plane."

Cons: "Waiting to long and is rhe same thing as Spirit ...."

Pros: "The water"
Cons: "Were over charged for baggage and then told it was our fault for bringing luggage on a trip. Charged me 120 dollars for a 55lb. Bag. We were specifically told 15 extra dollars not 75 dollars. Will never fly frontier ever again and after earning 82000 point in the last 2.5 years. I'm done with Frontier. My business will search out better less misleading airlines"

Pros: "The price of the ticket was really good. The cabin was clean. The seats are a little bigger than Spirit but I'm only 5'2" so that's not much of an issue for me. Flight to Atlanta arrived and left without a hitch. It was very organized and lifted off on time. Return flight was delayed due to weather at my destination in Houston but we were updated every 15 mins on the status of the departure/arrival time. Wasn't much confusion. Again the plane on my return was very clean. Crew was very nice and informative. Not sure what confusion is about bags from other reviews. Baggage prices are clearly stated on their website that's why the flights are so cheap. Snacks and drinks are not free ob the plane but you can buy those at kiosks after the security check point and bring it with you on the plane. If comfort is not you're number one priority than this airline works for you."
Cons: "No free drinks and snacks. No free carry on."

Cons: "Carry on charges"

Cons: "$40 for checked bag Paying for juice/coffee inadequate legroom"

Cons: "Late.. U had to purchase everything"

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."

Pros: "I flew for 3 hours and landed safely"
Cons: "Everything else, paying $40 each way for carry on, paying additional amount for selecting a seat, no one even offered a cup of water for three hours, can of soda 2.99. Complete rip off. Worst travel thus far for me."

Cons: "Flight delayed 2 1/2 hours whike a page from the log book was found. Apperently because of the large plane they couldn't bring in another one."

Pros: "The price for the ticket was good"
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable and wasn't served a drink or snack on such a long flight . The bag check in was very slow due to the baggage claim tags are handwritten and not computerized like most airlines"

Pros: "Flight was fine. Short flight of 2 hours, but no snack or tv."
Cons: "I wish all planes had a tv on the back of their seats!"

Pros: "Overall, nothing stands out as exceptional. Just basic. Crew was ok but on both segments of my flight, I found them to be somewhat unprofessional as they were all having personal constrains with each other and seemed a bit annoyed if a passenger needed something."
Cons: "The seats were the most uncomfortable plane seats I've ever sat in. I would recommend frontier for more than a 2 hour flight."

Cons: "My flight was 2.5 hours late due to gate availability. Does Frontier have access to only one gate at SFO? Once I got to the airport, I learned of a 1.75 hr delay due to fog in SFO earlier in the day effecting gate availability. So instead of landing at 11:30 pm, we landed at 1:10. A plane was still occupying our gate so we had to wait until 2 am before we could get off the plane. I will only fly Frontier in the future when the cost is much less than other options."

Pros: "No TV, sears do not recline, Frontier sucks"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "We were on time"
Cons: "$40 for luggage and I wasn't told it was credit card only so I had to go through half the airport to buy a pre paid card...another $5"

Pros: "non stop flight. crew was pleasant."

Pros: "Yes, on Frontier you have to pay for any extras - more cushy seats, baggage beyond carryons you can fit under the seat, beverages, food, etc. However, the price of the flight is worth it, even if you add on baggage charges. And a direct flight is priceless."
Cons: "We were a little late boarding, but still made it to Houston on time, so not a big deal, and often unavoidable."

Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable Charged for everything. I could of flew with the major carriers for what I had to pay paid 240 for round-trip then 18 for isle seat and 80 for carry on bag."

Cons: "Late and their customer service unpleasant"

Pros: "clean plane"
Cons: "I haven't flown Frontier in a while. I didn't realize I have to buy my seat too? What the heck is that? Sure it's only another $13 min. But here's the catch, you get a seat They've replaced the pull down table with a small flip down "table" that is about 1/3 the size of a standard table. While this does offer more legroom, it makes eating difficult and uncomfortable. I could not rest a standard square salad container on it during the flight. Luckily, I had a plastic bag from the vendor that I could put over my slacks to act as a big placemat. I didn't want to spill dressing on my pants. No WIFI onboard In short, I will be avoiding Frontier in the future. I do fly budget airlines like SW, but at least the attitude there is better. And what you get is clear."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "There is no leg room for tall people!"

Pros: "Stretch seating"
Cons: "$2 soda $30 carry on charge. What's next $50 charge to have heat in the aircraft."

Cons: "When we landed, they sent our baggage to the wrong carousel and never told us."

Cons: "The amount of hidden fees was ridiculous. It added on about $80 after the price it quoted me. The staff on board were super rude to everyone. And you can't even get any food or drinks on board without them charging you more! Ridiculous..."

Pros: "The extra leg room I was able to purchase."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not pleasant, rude to some pas sengers and spent a lot of time talking with each other and a few select passengers."

Cons: "A little noisy"

Pros: "Easy quick boarding"
Cons: "Seats were tiny with very little room. No complimentary snack or drinks and a very annoying pilot that thought he was a comedian."

Cons: "Flight delayed, no communication, unfriendly desk staff"

Pros: "Initial price"
Cons: "Initial price but added on baggage,seats , and food which increased price"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Flying from Denver to Houston I didn't need to pay for a carry on bag because I was told my bag would fit under my seat (and it did). On my return flight was told by the (unfriendly) staff member that I needed to place my bag in this VERY small contraption and if it fit I would not need to pay for my bag. Unfortunately, my bag did not fit however; I was able to place my bag under the seat in front of me for the entire flight. Previously in November I had to pay an additional $75 for my checked bag being 4 lbs overweight. That is highway robbery, I could have checked in another bag for less than that. I will no longer fly Frontier because I am extremely dissatisfied with their service."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Canceled flight for weather. Stayed on line for 30 minutes to talk to someone who couldn't rebook me for a week and gave me a number for the airport desk so I wouldn't have to drive there but that number circled back to the one I just called, so I drove to the airport where no one was at the desk for an hour and again couldn't rebook OR give me a refund. Back home then for more calls. Entire trip was cancelled and ruined. Never have been treated like this by reputable airline where I could have been rerouted or offered a next day flight or switch to another airline."

Pros: "I was easliy checked in"
Cons: "It was more then an hr late The plabe shook all the ride long It felt terribly unstable"
