Cons: "In flight movies would be nice . Tight seats for 6.3 huy"

Pros: "Was ultimately seated in Comfort+ even though I had an Economy ticket."

Pros: "Food and drinks were great"
Cons: "Would have liked being able to select a window seat."

Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Stuck at landing. For over 20+ minutes"

Cons: "Snacks"

Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Games on the tv were okay. Tetris would be a nice addition."

Pros: "Flight was early into New Orleans"
Cons: "Flight had a lot of turbulence"

Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Wi-Fi not working or hard to get to work. Flight was delayed by an hour and service was very rushed."

Pros: "Comfortable seat."

Pros: "The crew! You have great people working for you on these routes."

Pros: "Good service and on time."

Pros: "Nice plane. Efficient crew"
Cons: "Not their fault but they were delayed 4 hours. At least they texted updates fairly frequently but I can’t give a 5-Star review because of the huge delay"

Pros: "My seat was randomly the exit row, so more leg room and pilots made great time"

Pros: "Easy transition through customs."

Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Snacks were great!"

Pros: "Great flight . Even got here early"

Pros: "Quick boarding, clean plane, good entertainment system."
Cons: "Used a neck/back pillow and jacket against hull to try and keep my shoulder and arm from freezing solid. I usually sit by the window on a couple dozen flights per year, and it has never been this cold on my arm. I wonder if a heating pad would work on their outlet?"

Pros: "The outbound crew was terrific. The flight itself was fine. We even arrived early."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."

Pros: "Really helpful staff, clean plane, attentive and easy boardiing"
Cons: "The check in was a bit confusing at the airport."

Pros: "2 Delta employers went out of their way to address our messed up situation and make sure we got home without robbing us blind."

Cons: "1 hour flight delay"

Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"

Pros: "The gate person was very accommodating"
Cons: "It was over 2hrs late due to mechanical problems. Seems to be the norm."

Pros: "Service and staff"

Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."

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

Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"

Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."
Cons: "The gratis food offering isn't healthy - those bread pretzels, versus the almond & tomato juice I had on the next flight, with ...can't remember the name."

Cons: "Seating was tight"

Pros: "Good heads up to turbulence."

Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"

Pros: "Personnel and crew handled the problem in a professional manner doing everything in their power to make the best of a bad situation. Another plane was provided within a reasonable time frame."
Cons: "Four hour delay. Boarded and then being told after 40 minutes that the problem was not fixable."

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

Cons: "No space."

Cons: "They claim to be cleaning these planes but I find that hard to believe when there is Gum on the window sill. We were also delayed quite a bit in the boarding process. Also I would imagine that during Covid-19 these companies would do a better job of not overbooking flights but all of my flights with American this past weekend were overbooked. Which delayed us even longer as they searched for volunteers to adjust their flights. In today's age of technology the idea that they are still overbooking planes makes no sense to me in the slightest. I will be walking, driving or taking a boat before I fly American Airlines again."

Cons: "Social distancing"

Cons: "Bumped from first class to coach."

Cons: "WiFi"

Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "everything was good"

Pros: "Cabin was clean. Flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "Their snacks were merely a cookie which was okay, but not what I would have wanted."

Cons: "Crew behaviour is ridiculous. She says I am not here for listening you, you have to listen to us only, otherwise we will call security"

Pros: "I made it safely to my destinations and in a timely manner."

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."

Pros: "That I went cross country well"
Cons: "Old planes. Dirty. No entertainment. Noisy. No chargers for electronic devices. No music in a 5+ hour flight. Small narrow seats even on premium seats. Over rated and expensive."

Pros: "Crew was efficient and personable."
Cons: "Two and a half hour delay leaving EWR because aircraft was late from prior destination. UAL said FAA limited flights coming in due to weather. Although scattered light rain, no seemingly unusual weather at EWR. No special reward once on the flight to make up for that delay (I.e. still charged for snacks and alcoholic drinks). Delay was very frustrating. Also, not a fan of selections on United WiFi entertainment - very limited."

Cons: "Everything was great."

Pros: "Pilot communicated everything"
Cons: "Late takeoff"

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: "Very uncomfortable seating!"

Pros: "On time. Comfortable"

Pros: "On time and direct"

Cons: "Same comment as above"

Cons: "The snack"

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."

Cons: "Still not in New Orleans"

Pros: "They were friendly no matter where you were seated. Always had smiles"
Cons: "All was good. No dislikes"

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"

Pros: "Everything was great and the trip was on time perfect"

Pros: "Love the customer service and friendly staff"

Cons: "Fix the plane before it’s scheduled to take off"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled, they made us wait at the airport for five hours, kept delaying thirty minutes at a time. Didn't offer another flight out until three days later"

Pros: "The crew and the clouds"
Cons: "Send out emails reminding passages to shower (that means washing your hair and ass), wear deodorant, and brush their teeth."

Pros: "Yes!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Attendants were nice"
Cons: "Seats are hard, late plane, over an hour late"

Pros: "Pilots were great. Nice flight experience."
Cons: "Delayed boarding - waiting for paperwork. Annoying"

Pros: "The price but after today, I’m going back to “you get what you pay for.”"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 21/2 hours. Was not told ahead of time. We boarded even later then we sat on the tarmac for an hour and a half and we were told that we were #12 in line. An hour later we were told that we were now #15!! Finally off the ground. Flight attendant had a very annoying voice but what made it worse how he kept asking for money because of everyone purchasing. Yes I know but some how on other flights you don’t hear about the money, this was in your face"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service, didn’t take off or land in time, no explanations"

Pros: "the crew is nice"
Cons: "waiting 2hours for board, and wait again after landing"

Cons: "N/A"

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: "Good flight for price"

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

Pros: "Arriving early"
Cons: "Having to pay for basics"

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: "baggage check-in speedy and efficient, rapid plane boarding and plane left the gate on schedule"
Cons: "A special circle in Dante's Hell should be reserved for the Frontier executives who approved the seat design. The non-reclining seat backs are fairly comfortable, but the seat bottoms appear to have about 1/4 inch of foam padding over a hard shell. Did anybody actually test these things out by sitting in them for over 10 minutes?"

Cons: "Small table trays & uncomfortable seats. You get what you pay for."

Cons: "MY LUGGAGE WAS LOST!!!"

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: "I had an average flight. No major issues. My main objective as a direct fight which only this flight offered. $40 checked bag fee. Not aware of any fee for carry-one but guess I need to check my recipets...."

Pros: "NOTHING!!! Worse customer service I've ever experienced. 2 canceled flights and no email notification for either. Hell in one instance they counter never opened to explain the issues. NEVER AGAIN!"

Cons: "Charged more for carry on than checked no entertainment"

Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The baggage fee was too high."

Cons: "."

Pros: "Flight was fine. Seats were cramped but no worse than any other airline."
Cons: "When we landed, I did not get to baggage claim in a timely fashion. Frontier took our luggage and locked it up. We were told to go to the Frontier ticket counter to get our luggage. When we arrived all the frontier employees were gone for the day and no one at the airport could retrieve it. We had to wait several hours for someone to come and get our luggage. This was a terrible inconvenience. I have never experienced anything like this by any other airline. I have no idea why they did not just leave it off to the side (like every other airline does)."

Pros: "Arriving"
Cons: "Constant waiting and delays and ridiculous fees. Would be better to charge more instead of deceptive charges."

Pros: "People"
Cons: "Concourse changes last minute and not communicated..."

Pros: "Safety instructions worth the funny copy was great."

Cons: "Five hours late, HORRIBLE representatives And"

Cons: "Fronter seems to be delayed often"

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."

Cons: "The plane departed 45 minutes behind schedule. When we arrived, 20 people or so did not receive their luggage. Frontier representatives were nowhere to be found. Finally someone came and herded us upstairs, gave us no information about our luggage, and had us form a line to file a claim. Frontier staff was utterly unapologetic and had no sense of urgency. I still don't know where my bag is. The plane was supposed to land at 12:45, and I left the airport at 3:30 and missed an important work meeting."

Pros: "The staff and pilots were great!"
Cons: "The seat I spent extra for."

Pros: "The friendliness of the flight attendants, as well as the help I received at the check-In desk."
Cons: "The comfort of the seats, I'm 6-4" the room available is tiny for me."

Cons: "late departure late arrival sat on tarmac 40 minutes"

Pros: "I can tell you what I didn't like. My seat and bags cost more than the flight itself. So no I did not have a good experience and I will never fly Spirit again"

Pros: "Caring crew! The flight was on time and we even arrived slotted early"
Cons: "We were not offered a free cup of water. Even though it was a short flight it would have been appreciated"

Cons: "O couldn't take the flight because the cost of my luggage exceeded the costed my fight & was not allowed to cancel for refund of any kind."

Pros: "The 40 minutes the flight was late the crew made up in the air"
Cons: "Took 45 minutes for baggage to appear"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and humorous"
Cons: "Flight attendants made too many unnecessary reminders throughout the flight about buckling seat belts and staying seated when the seatbelt sign is illuminated. It felt like every 5 minutes they were making an announcement making it impossible to get any rest. Passengers were roundly and acted like they had never been on a plane before. Maybe they hadn't and just didn't know any better. But it made the flight unpleasant."

Cons: "the pilot almost crashed the plane"

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

Pros: "The flight attending Andrew was very rude. Rude to me and many others. I felt it was the worst experience ive had on a flight, i fly often."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "The Denver people who helped"
Cons: "My brand new suitcase was broken after paying for it to be checked. My clothes and bath bag was on the pick up alone. When it was in my bag. Had to ask for tape to keep it somewhat closed to the rode and hotel. Still no email from frontier !"

Pros: "Great fare.awesome staff.had to wait to load bags.but will fly again"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That they did not have enough people to process all the flights " we didn't expect all of you to show up" Allowed four other flights to cut in line to make their flight but when it came to new Orleans had 100 of us not board. 4 hours later, 5 lines and lying to us about the plane turning around They Told us the next flight was 4 days later... not even connections options. At first they did not want to give us refunds either until they called security on one irate small blonde lady and security, afraid of a riot I think, told the airline they needed to resolve the issue."

Pros: "On time bag claim fast comfortable seat for short flight"
Cons: "Baggage drop off line at 5am ridiculous"

Pros: "I knew of the baggage policies so check in was easy and smooth. Other people seemed to have trouble with it so maybe baggage policies should be more advertised. Overall, great and comfortable experience for me."
