I was told a confirmation of a new flight was going to be email once the request from the support had been approved (the email confirmation was never received). I was also instructed multiple times to not show at the airport unless I had receive the confirmation. I was up most of the night waiting for this confirmation that never came!! I received an email this morning letting me know the fight from ALT to Mexico had been delay!! When I opened it to view the itinerary it showed she had been booked for the am fight at 6:30 am! after spending another hour and 35 minutes on the phone your support team could not find a fight until Dec.21!! Not to mention the accepted they had problems with their email system and phones, but asked why didn't I called,mmm I was on the phone for the 3rd time!!!! I am very, very disappointed!! Not a discount was offer or a fight the next day even when I was checking an flights were available!!! Here is the other part,,Rosa came all the way from Mexico to care for her ill sister for the last 2 1/2 months, all she asked was to be able to be back home for the holidays!! Your team insisted on scheduling a flight for next week or a full refund!! This was not a money matter!! It's about getting some one home for the Holidays who has helped a ill person during the most vulnerable time in her life!!"

Cons: "The usual...cramped seating. Boarding was very slow."

Pros: "Boarding process was easy."

It was an overnight flight, arriving before 6 am and all that was offered prior to landing was a mint...seriously, no coffee? I was in first class and expected a light breakfast but AT LEAST A CUP OF COFFEE. Never again will I pay for first class on this airline. AMERICAN AIRLINES SHOULD BE ASHAMED. 4.

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Got to my destination without any delays"
Cons: "I booked a window seat and sat by a wall instead with no window. Seats were very cramped."

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: "American Airlines was great!"
Cons: "Finnair changed my flight to American Airlines (which I don't mind) but never notified me and made me go through hoops to get the changed record indicator."

Pros: "Tiny airplane but single flght crew managed my and from what I could see fellow passengers needs commendably. Whilst I didn't like needing to hand in my carry on (without much warning so I didn't have time to pull out a magazine to read) on the plus side it was stored well as my suit carrier came out unscathed and you get your bags curb side as soon as the plane lands so you don't have to wait for the rest of the bags to unload."
Cons: "Because the airplane is so small there is not much room to move in the aisle (thankfully most people just sat down for the short flight), also you have to hand in your carry on baggage so that it is stored with the main bags."

Pros: "Courteous and polite"
Cons: "Nothing was a great flight"

Cons: "2 hours late. Kept moving the boarding time by 10min"

Pros: "They gave us free headphones. The seat back entertainment had a large selection of movies to watch."

There were far too many interruptions during the flight that paused the seat back entertainment. Awesome that you have a credit card, but I don't need to hear about it 100 times during the flight."

Cons: "Seat broken tray table broken reading light did not work 15 total hours in the air and 7 of them the movie system did not work Paid for upgraded seat and did not get one - got moved to a standard seat."

Pros: "I liked the crew and I liked the entertainment, as it made the 10+ hour trip go so quickly. I was also able to sleep 1/2 the time. The crew was extremely nice. I would love to fly BA or AA or any of their partners as long as the fates are reasonable."
Cons: "I checked in online and had my seats reserved and I only had one piece of luggage to check in. In LAX, as long as I checked in for the flight on time, all I had to do in LA was go to a kiosk and check my luggage myself and give it to the people who work at the counter. The whole process took 5 minutes. However, even though I was checked in For my flight, in LHR, I was told that I still had to wait in the long line for those who needed their boarding passes among checking in tons of luggage. I was given a paper ticket lthough i already had one in my iPhone apple wallet. Besides waiting, for what I thought was a waste since I only had to check in luggage, the gates seemed so far away and the scheduling boards don't indicate right away as to what gate I need to go to. Luckily, my app told me what gate and I was hoping it was correct because I had to walk so far. Basically my gripes were with the airport and not with the flight itself. One thing bout the plane from London to lax, it seems the bigger the plane, the less legroom I had. I felt too close to the people next to me. The plane from Paris had more room."

Cons: "Two of the 4 flights were late due to setting on tarmac to long,going& coming,almost missed flights because of it!!! Stewardess were very rude & not helpful!!!!! Especially when it came to helping with carry on luggage, luggage that I did check was destroyed !!! This is the second set of luggage that they have done this to !!!!!!"

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."

Pros: "On time, friendly etc"

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Everything about UA."

Pros: "The flight itself was uneventful and went as expected."
Cons: "We were instructed to hand in our hand luggage before boarding the plane which meant we had to wait in a long one after the flight to get the luggage back. HOWEVER, the plane had plenty of overhead luggage room to accommodate our luggage. We were told by the cabin staff that the gate personnel don't always check what size plane it is before requiring everyone to hand in their luggage."

Pros: "Free movies/entertainment"
Cons: "No selection of beer or liquor or food. OK - A flight to MEXICO and you have no mexican beer, tequila, or anything even remotely resembling Mexican drinks yet you boast all the routes you serve to mexico. It was nearly a four hour flight. C'mon"

Pros: "It was a direct flight"
Cons: "Even though I checked in early I was not assigned a seat. I had to wait to see if people didn't show up to claim a seat. For a red eye it is difficult to notify family if you don't get on the flight because most likely they will be getting up early to pick you up at the airport. Luckily I got on the flight but the stress of waiting was tough. I was treated just as if I was on standby yet I purchased my flight ahead of time."

Cons: "I did not like that our flight was delayed three hours. I understand there was a thunderstorm but it has resolved before we were to board the plane. Then we had to switch gates three times."

Pros: "At the gate, I asked about chaining our seats since they were in the extreme back of the plane. The gate attendant gave us some great economy plus seats for free. I wish I would have remembered his name. But Thank You!!!"
Cons: "It's still a long flight from San Francisco to Mexico City but it's just on the cusp on not getting any freebies, i.e. food, premium drinks. This was kind of a let down but I got over it."

Pros: "I didnt like it at all"
Cons: "That ac was always wrong so temperature never refreshed. That made impossible to enjoy this trip at all."

Cons: "They lost my bag for my entire vacation. They found it and "rushed" it to me, but it got waylaid in SFO and would have sat there had I not called them. Then they said they would deliver it to my hotel. When it arrived 4 days later, they said I could pick it up and they would not deliver it. I was 2.5 hours away. I told them to send it home, but they didn't and when I flew home 7 days later, it was still sitting in Munich!"

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"

The lead flight attendant and her staff worked together like a well oiled machine. this is our first time flying Frontier and it was an excellent experience. We’lll be back! Oh yea, coffee was great, not that awful strong Starbucks stuff."

Will never use again, Staying with American Airlines or Virgin! Horrible landing, my wife thought she was going to fall out of the plane. Flying United was the worst until now."

Pros: "The flight was non stop at the time I was looking for."

Pros: "Pleasant & helpful service."
Cons: "Crowded seating."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and kind."
Cons: "I felt like I was sitting on the person who sat beside me I wasn't really fond of touching some stranger...Water should be free I"

Pros: "Buying their bundle through Frontiers website that includes a checked bag, a carry-on, a seat, and zone one boarding was worth it for this airline."
Cons: "The plane was definitely older and there was trash and something sticky all in and around my seat. The flight attendants were very stuck up and played on their tablets and phones for the duration of the flight, ate pizza, and looked to be drinking too. Not much customer help, but that's also because no complimentary items are given through frontier, no even a half cup of soda. There are no bonus features on board like wi-fi or tv's on seat backs to order tv or movies. The price of flight was offset by the cost of bags and seat, so I ended up paying the same as I would have via United. I will not be flyin Frontier again."

Cons: "Absolutely awful experience. Arrived 3 hrs ahead of time to check luggage and the line was wrapped all the way around the airport. No one working to direct the lines. Only 3 people working to check luggage the week before christmas. Almost missed our flight because the line was so long. Was advertised as some free seating options but when checked into flight 24 hr ahead of time had to pay $16 a piece for middle row seats at the very back of the airplane. Flight was delayed 3 hrs because one of the flight attendants did not show up. Will never fly frontier again."

Pros: "Frontier got me where I needed to go on time with no hassles."

Pros: "Everything else was great"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Frontier has got to be the worst airline in the country. This is America's Ryan Air. They close their gate 40 minutes before the plane leaves; you will be stranded if you are late (My son missed his flight in the past when we arrived 50 minutes before the plane left). They charge for everything; checked bags, carry-ons, even drinks. There is no room to store anything. The seats don't recline. There is no entertainment. The staff is surly. They are supposed to be a low-cost airline, but, after all of the mark-ups, it's about the same. They have the worst on-time performance of any domestic airline. Do not fall for it. If you have ANY alternative choice, take it!!!"

Pros: "The flight was super cheap, the flight crew was friendly, and the seats were fairly comfortable."
Cons: "Though a sign was posted with a time when the counter agent would arrive, we (there were MANY of us waiting who had checked in electronically) had to wait over 20 minutes for her to show up to tag and take our checked bags. She was unkempt and unfriendly, and oddly insisted on looking at everyone's identification, even those who weren't checking bags. The flight crew was wonderful, and the rest of the flight was generally good. It's not effective for a travel business to begin a journey on a bad note."

Pros: "I liked being able to have priority getting off my first flight to make my connection in Denver. I had to sprint but I made it."
Cons: "I didn't like having to pay extra for my seat on both flights, pay for my carry on that didn't fit in your overhead compartment, and pay for my only carry on, a backpack. I paid for my flight, that should be the price of my seat and the things I need to travel. I pack light and I still had to pay an extra $100 on the day of my flight. VERY dissatisfied."

Cons: "Another subpar experience with frontier and my last"

Pros: "Not ONE thing!"
Cons: "It started with a 30 minute wait at the ticketing counter because the staff was at the gate boarding another flight. I was extremely surprised with a $40 baggage fee. The flight boarded and then we sat for over 2 hours because of a malfunction with the auto-pilot. The captain said they could fly the plane without the auto-pilot but there was an extreme amount of paperwork that had to be completed. Are you kidding me? Two hours to fill out paperwork--that is a complete waste of your employees time, let alone the 200 passengers that are stuck and delayed!!!! At least I now know that "cheaper" is a relative term when flying Frontier airlines. I have lifetime gold status on United...what was I thinking when I booked this flight?"

Pros: "The girl who took my ticket was extremely accommodating; I had forgot to register my son as a lap child and she did it without a problem!"
Cons: "Paying for drinks is annoying and it was delayed."

Pros: "Nothing. Flight was extremely late and delayed by almost two hours. Flight attendants were once again extremely rude and disrespectful."
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant and helpful for those with screwed up flights"
Cons: "Flight was delayed the excuse given was lame so it was caused by the airline. I have not flow frontier in some time the delay coupled with the worlds most uncomfortable seat. Pretty much ensures I will note fly Frontier again for some time"

Cons: "Baggage charge $35. 1st bag going under should be free."

Pros: "The price, until you lied about that!"
Cons: "An additional 70.00 in baggage for Roundtrip that is not disclosed until you check in...BS. delays, delays, and more delays!"

Pros: "It got me there"
Cons: "You buy a ticket and do not get a seat. Every thing is an extra. I knew what I was getting into. A single leg trip less than 2 hours. Would fly something other than Frontier if the distance was greater"

Pros: "Every part of the dsm airport experience is simple and fast."
Cons: "I wouldn't take frontier again. It's a class system that charges people for every minor convenience that should already be part of your flying experience. I'm fortunate enough to be able to afford all the stupid additional costs that I paid for in my ticket that, in actuality, made the total cost far more expensive than delta or United."

Cons: "Checking in website didn't work, so had to pay extra for seat assignment and luggage. I tried 24 hours before to check in select seats and pay for luggage but had to call land line. Service personnel was friendly but couldn't help. VERY FRUSTRATING"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and boarded the plane quickly."
Cons: "Basically everything else was awful. The seats were the worst I've ever sat in on an airplane. There was something poking me in the back the entire flight. On an international flight there should be some sort of food options beyond m&m and rice krispy treats.... I ordered one, and they had none left. There wasn't even a magazine for me to look at while on the plane. Really disappointing experience from stem to stern"

Pros: "The crew was entertaning and polite"
Cons: "No free beverage or cary on lugage."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Delayed flight, paying for carry on bags, no complimentary beverage for a 4 hour flight"

Pros: "Staff need to communicate. Misinformation and now luggage is missing after we were delayed in des Moines for hours."
