Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Great crew!"

Pros: "Free entertainment"

Pros: "The crew on both legs of our trip were nice and accommodating."

Pros: "Good seats"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and my luggage didn’t make the plane."

Cons: "You shouldn't schedule a flight for a plane that is due to have scheduled maintenance. It's not like this should come as a surprise to you. Also, there was at least one over-served passenger on board who became loud and obnoxious, shouting obscenities."

Pros: "The crew was great and the seat was good"
Cons: "Our flight was 3 hours delayed"

Pros: "the video controller in the headrest of the seat ahead of me. you could see the flight pattern, speed, temperature outside and other specs, which were interesting."
Cons: "once again, the delta crew does not maintain their planes properly. during the taxi stage to get to the airway to lift off, there was a horrendous growling sound coming from the plane............seems like their hydraulic system is not maintained very well at all and it made a howling sound throughout the plane all the way to take off! we were wondering if there was something wrong with the plane."

Pros: "Crew"

Pros: "Great Service and flight was without problems or delays. Arrived on time ."

Pros: "The plane and entertainment system was good. The cabin crew was a little slow. But all in all it was a good flight."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Well for one my seat was broken. At the beginning of the flight they said “there are meals for purchase available” when i asked for one they said they were all out but then gave out to other customers. Their attitudes were horrible."

Cons: "Better accommodation for handicap passengers."

Pros: "Roomier than a lot of airplanes."
Cons: "Bumpy ride. Nobody's fault."

Pros: "Super friendly flight crew."

Pros: "Entertainment system, snacks and friendly crew members"
Cons: "Serious delays on flight. It was very tiring and became an all day affair."

Pros: "Seats were spacious"
Cons: "No entertainment, snacks were bad and plane was old."

Pros: "20 minutes ahead of schedule"

Cons: "They said it was late because of a tire issue that was fixed in Salt Lake causing a late departure on a round trip SLC-Burbank. It arrived back to Salt Lake late causing the Dallas flight to leave late. I got a message at 6:24 pm regarding the late departure for the 8:15 pm flight to Dallas. They knew this info hours before. It should have been communicated sooner"

Pros: "Everything was great"

Pros: "I like the snacks they are not giving out on the flights. It seems that Delta is trying to make the flying experience nicer instead of more tedious and uncomfortable like many other airlines, which is appreciated."
Cons: "The flights were both operated by Delta but booked through WestJet, and the flights themselves were fine. The booking was through WestJet (found the flight on kayak which kicked me over to West Jet's site) and check in was a pain. Their code did not work for their site or Delta's, I had to FB message them both leaving and returning to ask for the correct one, and the first request took them hours to answer. I'll just book Delta next time and save myself the trouble."

Pros: "Quiet, friendly, fast and efficient. What you'd want for a flight at 6am"

Pros: "I liked the legroom and the seat"
Cons: "No entertainment screen, no real food, I don’t care how long the trip is, I got first class, I expect first class service."

Pros: "It all went very well. Arrived 20 minutes ahead of time. Wifi movies were great. Stewardesses were very efficient."

Pros: "The lights where off to make it feel more homie, I liked that I had the seat to myself and the crew was nice."

Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "I appreciated that Delta was on time and prompt about getting passengers onboard. I appreciated that the stewardess was very courteous. I appreciated that there was no delay."
Cons: "There was nothing that I did not like. I had a previous bad experience with another airline that canceled my flight three days in a row. So I was very appreciative of the fact that Delta had available flights for me to leave."

Pros: "-forgot to charge me for wine"
Cons: "-chair was broken -tray was broken -had to spend $33 for wifi that didn't even work -didn't have everything they say they offer to guests on the flight"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic. I generally love flying Delta and find their crew to always be very professional and kind."
Cons: "As this was a smaller, regional jet, there weren't a lot of amenities. But that's fine, it's only a 40-minute flight!"

Pros: "Staff were awesome. Give them a raise."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly, especially the attendant named Charlie. The cabin was also nice and cold. I hate getting too hot on planes so it was really nice that they had good AC going. Short trip overall and was very pleased!"
Cons: "No complaints!"

Pros: "on time meet all my expectations"
Cons: "I believe it is time for WI-FI to be complimentary in flights. It is far too expensive and feels like price gauging"

Pros: "Departing on time and clean"
Cons: "There was no screens, all the other airlines have screens, but that wasn't my problem and I got coloring book and crayons for me daughter, so she can play with them, but my issue was that when they gave snack to everyone and I didn't get anything and then I told the other flight attendant that I didn't get my snack and still she didn't get it, she said she was going to get it and didn't come back :(( I was really disappointed with that, they r old and forget things, so our line 19 nobody got anything .. i like delta was I wasn't happy this time with it"

Cons: "Late"

Pros: "Very courteous staff. Legeoom not too bad."
Cons: "Delay."

Pros: "Service in the flight !!"

Cons: "Was never able to get on flight. The plane lost a windshield wiper and didn't have any spare parts."

Pros: "Delta provided a superior experience!"

Pros: "Easy loading and unloading the plane. Friendly staff"

Pros: "Nothing at all"

Pros: "On time Clean airplane Smooth ride Friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "I'm not sure if this staff is exhausted or just over there job, but they cow towed to a woman who made major complaints about the air conditioning and even gave her points to help her deal with the temperature. Strange. They were only gold stays and I'm only Platinum and didn't complain once. Oh well, that's delta, we all deal with their silence when we post anything that is unfair."

Pros: "On time, boarding very fast and crew very friendly"
Cons: "My son's seat was filthy with red stains of some liquid on the tray and window"

Pros: "The check in personnel was fantastic - very helpful and friendly with a very relevant story that made me feel more relaxed. Our not so good seats were somewhat compensated by the plane staff that gave us each a full beverage can, extra pretzels, and some cookies."
Cons: "Our seats that we'd picked out seemed to get changed when we checked in and we got out in the last row, which had no window, and smelled strongly of bathroom cleaner."

Cons: "i checked my bag and did not have any carry-on. Generally, i feel i should be offered boarding before all the masses who try to carry on bags that are too large and need to be gate-checked....they clog up the ramp and aisles once on the plane (this is a general complaint that is not directed at Delta specifically...applies to all airlines)"

Pros: "Miserable all around experience"
Cons: "The flight delay was not reported correctly until 30 minutes before expected departure. The baggage carousel stopped running after already being more then a hour late. No members present to rectify. Absolutely terrible trip"

Cons: "Nothing evething is ok"

Pros: "The crew was amazing, considering the late flight & full plane."

Pros: "Good free mobile entertainment"
Cons: "Plane was unbelievably hot the entire flight. Air vents did not cool the plane at all. We were all sweating the entire time."

Pros: "For me, a flight is “excellent” anymore if it’s on time and no one gets booted off the plane. Both flights were early!"
Cons: "Didn’t look he the free snacks."

Cons: "We were not told our passports needed to have an expiration past six months of travel even though we got back before the expiration. We entered our passport info including our expiration dates and we’re given no warning. We even had our boarding passes prior to showing up at the airport. We will not use Kayak in the future and will book direct through the airline moving forward."

Cons: "Too cold"

Pros: "When I went from London to Chicago, I felt one male crew member wasn’t very kind. He wasn’t tall but healthy and serving the other side away from the main door. I felt him greeting others with a smile but with no smile to me. I thought in my heart seems like he is discriminating, I could be wrong, but I always felt he wasn’t so humble while serving to me or may be other Indians too. But he was smiling extra to rest of the passengers,"
Cons: "I didn’t like his attitude. I would request you to request the crew members to be kind to everyone. Since Iam vegtarian ..I couldn’t eat the egg that was served an hour before landing in Chicago. He could have given me the chocolate inside. He just said in haste this has egg. I told him oh I don’t eat egg, thank you. still he could have been considerate and offered me the chocolate “Toubolron” but he just went away. Later on I saw everyone eating the chocolate."

Pros: "The crew was excellent and most of the counter staff was good except for the one in Dallas. Actually flew on JAL partner AA"
Cons: "Delay out of Wichita and another delay out of Dallas, got into Tokyo 3 hours late. Paid $167 for upgrade to economy plus but seat assignment was in economy"

Pros: "I planned a very affordable & organized trip, using KAYAK! Very satisfied so far!"
Cons: "NA"

Cons: "Plane never arrived. Forced to rebook a day later"

Cons: "Bought 2 tickets but seats weren’t together poor service"

Pros: "The movie and TV selection was excellent"
Cons: "Interrupting my movie several times. Stop that. I understand when it’s a seat belt message, or landing. Don’t make me listen to the pilot drone on about the weather. It’s 2018. I can check that on my own"

Cons: "Delayed for three hours due to weather"

Pros: "Leg room in coach"
Cons: "No movie selection"

Pros: "Despite numerous delays, we made it to Philadelphia. We were alerted to the delays in a timely manner. We were also treated to a snack cart and cupcakes to celebrate the first day of direct flights."
Cons: "A long delay. Patience is everything and the staff and crew were very friendly."

Pros: "Things went as they should have got a 2 hour flight."
Cons: "The inside of the plane around the air vents definitely could use some cleaning."

Pros: "I upgraded to a premium seat I was assigned a seat in the middle very uncomfortable when there were empty seats three rows ahead should not have been a problem"

Pros: "Ease of check in"
Cons: "DIdnt understand why a seat as not assigned. A few people had the same issue and the gate agent suggested we may not get seats. Very stressful given he need to make an international connection. Gate service was not available early enough."

Pros: "The dinner was good"
Cons: "All the flight attendants were hanging out in the back. Socializing like we were invisible. They seemed to prioritize one another over the passengers. It felt a little odd."

Pros: "Crew made a special effort to find me a nondairy meal (which I had neglected to request)."
Cons: "Web page dysfunction meant we couldn't sign up for wifi. The page asked me to set security questions but the pulldown for the questions had no options to select from. I tried on multiple devices/browsers."

Cons: "Back row, but someone has to sit there :)"

Cons: "."

Pros: "Not exceptional"
Cons: "Not much room for moving around but really fast"

Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "The trip was good"

Pros: "The flights were on time and the staff was very friendly."

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

Cons: "significant delay in boarding; return to terminal to remove a drunk. Result was missed connection at DFW to London, resulting in missed connection to Munich; resulting in loss of my checked luggage"

Pros: "The flight arrived early which was nice. But that's the only good thing about this flight."
Cons: "From checking my bag to leaving the plane in Dallas, I felt like AA employees thought passengers were just in the way. It was almost as if the flight attendants were traveling to Dallas and they happened to have to take care of passengers along the way. There were very few smiles, hellos, or how can I help you. It was almost always and grunt and what do you want? The personal device entertainment was very buggy. the movie I tried to watch kept skipping, like on old scratched CD."

Pros: "American airline flight to Paris was great"

Pros: "Snacks and entertainment"

Pros: "The planes were comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't get a boarding pass for my third flight."

Cons: "Boarding took forever and I'm a Premium passenger."

Pros: "Ticket agents at all airports were helpful and very considerate."
Cons: "We were not able to print our boarding passes the day before as expected per the website and purchase docs for the tickets, despite providing passport numbers (several times) and Global Entry registrations. Had to go to a ticket desk at first departure and third departure points to have them printed, with no explanations given. Also not allowed to choose our seats for the third leg. Food was barely edible. Paid extra for roomier seats on one leg, making it more comfortable, but were extremely tight on another leg which had many empty seats scattered throughout the cabin. Cabin attendants seemed more interested in pushing items that generated revenue than providing the ones that came with the ticket (which is never cheap to begin with)."

Pros: "It was all good.it was"

Pros: "Slept very well in business. Great crew!"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Got me to destination, I slept the whole way."
Cons: "Delayed for about 15 minutes on arrival, something about maintenance and the entry door."

Pros: "The friendly personal"

Pros: "In seat entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding sequence"

Cons: "Self check-in staff at Seattle was not that helpful."

Cons: "A guy passed out prior to boarding, then they put him on the flight. We push back from the gate and start the engines and the guy passes out again. Now we are delayed 35 minutes. Why did they put someone one the flight that was clearly sick before he ever boarded then you make everyone miss their connection in Dallas. We got to the gate for our connecting flight 9 minutes before the pushed back from the ramp and they would not let us on??? WTF poor customer service!! Fly southwest from now on!"

Pros: "The crew was friendly, energetic, educational and very helpful"
Cons: "Des moines airplanes seem to be the left overs. Old and outdated."

Pros: "At 10 pm no one would help to get a room to spend the night. No vouchers. No help for a mother with infant. Had to find hotel on own."
Cons: "See above. Horrible. Absolutely horrible experience."

Cons: "Poor cew service"

Cons: "Seats not enough padding"

Cons: "Sore lower back from the seat."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had two hour for connecting flight on quatr airways but the flight from St. Louis left St. Louis at 335 pm instead of 2pm. When I got of flight in Dallas they were already paging me overhead as a last call for quatr airways."

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "No apologies for being delayed. More than 4 hours. No explanation. Nothing. Awful service."

Pros: "Easy connections, very timely and everything worked out great."
Cons: "Plane was full"

Pros: "Extraordinary efforts to accommodate bags in the overhead bin."

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."

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: "Decent room on the flight. No food or drink."

Pros: "Friendly service,. On time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everybody was so friendly"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Quick and easy. Nice crew."

Pros: "I was treated wonderfully and had an amazing times."
Cons: "Everything was great."

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: "No one could get their story straight and actually lied! I was sent a text (I was already at the airport) that the flight would be delayed due to "aircraft maintenance". Not true in the least bit. Then when we finally landed in Denver (nearly every person on that flight missed their connecting flights) we were told the system said the delay was "due to weather". Another lie. Then they announced there would be gate agents to meet us when we got off the plane to assist with connecting flights. First gate agent said "I have no information you have to go to gate 56". The person at gate 56 said "I don't open for another 15 minutes so you have to go to gate 39"! The real story? They made us change gates 5 times in Fargo! The gate attendant was using the "F-bomb"! It wasn't aircraft maintenance or the weather. They couldn't get the walkway to work! In the end, we still left from the original gate and had to walk outside on the tarmac to board the plane. Why didn't they just opt for that to begin with and avoid all the missed flights? My measly voucher isn't nearly enough compensation and if United ever expects me to fly with them again I am expecting a full refund (as other passengers received- I witnessed the manager in Denver authorize a full refund for another passenger but only offered me $50)"

Cons: "Tight seats, full flights"

Pros: "Flight departed on time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "United baggage check in at Orlando Airport was chaotic with huge crowds, inattentive United staff ignoring passengers, and a baggage conveyor belt that was broken down."

Cons: "It was super cold. Miserable."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew worked quickly to get me another flight when I was not gonna make my connection flight."
Cons: "The plane malfunctioned and their time management of telling us when it was gonna be fixed was poor."

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"

Pros: "Security was quick and efficient. Boarding was extremely organized. The airline attendants were attentive. The pilot on United informed us when the possibility of hitting turbulence occurred so we could adjust accordingly. Overall, great travel experience."

Pros: "Boarding and landing ahead of schedule"

Pros: "Generally it was ok. Travelling is so horrible these days that "ok" seems pretty great."
Cons: "My bag was lost but my husband's, checked at the same time, made it."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Refused to delay connecting flight in Denver even though severL of where already on ground in delayed flight coming into Denver. Albuquerque flght was still at gate when I got there, having run through airport along with several others. We were refused admission to plane despite delay being United's fault. Unacceptable! I will avoid flying United in the future whenever possible"

Pros: "I didn't fly.I bought the ticket for my son. He had no complaints. You should ask in your questionnaire if the booked flight was for self or someone else."

Cons: "How they canceled one of my flights just as I landed at my layover for that flight when I look back at Boston they had a direct flight ready for my destination. Very poor management I was stuck in Chicago with no money or food for hours then after they start boarding for my new flight they tell me that I may not be able to get on even with ticket in hand. It was a joke and very stressful"

Pros: "Boarding was uneventful, but I wish I could have gotten a gate check....I;m 76 and getting my bag above the seat is difficult. But the gate attendant said there was no gate check on that flight."
Cons: "I had a center seat and that is very uncomfortable for me."

Pros: "Got there on time."
Cons: "Private screening does not work well. Very little kneeroom. No room in seat back pockets to put anything."

Pros: "On-time departure from Cancun but early arrival in Denver (relatively mild jet stream?). Otherwise, fairly typical United cattle carrier."

Pros: "The pilot apologized profusely for our delayed departure, and offered us free in-flight TV. He made up time, and we arrived only 30 minutes late (take-off was delayed over an hour)."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Airplane went to the wrong airport and caused 3 hour delay . Missed my connecting flight."

Pros: "Suitcase arrived at the carrousel on time , much better than Houston."

Cons: "Delayed and got downgraded without refund of difference"

Cons: "I wish I could have gotten more beverage (water) during the flight. Very dry in the cabin but all-in-all, it was a pleasant experience."

Pros: "This leg of my journey was fine. Sat in the middle seat. Was able to sleep most of the way."

Pros: "I loved it"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lack of updates"

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: "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?"

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: "United seems to be recycling which is a good thing."
Cons: "The obnoxious child sitting behind me. He kicked the seat and pulled on the tray."

Pros: "They whole computer system went down all morning"
Cons: "I haven't made it. Their computer system was down all morning. I got a pretty inexpensive flight which was refunded. Although I can't go home, all the one way tickets are 3 times the price. Me and my 6 month old baby can't get home to his daddy."

Pros: "Crew was great!"

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: "Instead of a 4 hour layover in Denver, I was easily able to get on an earlier flight to slc thank you to such a wonderful front desk agent. Even the crew members on board were so pleasant you could tell they truly enjoy their job and want to make for an enjoyable flight. Thank you United!! Will be flying with you again!!"

Pros: "Extremely friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment, but that is expected"

Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Very rough flight but pilot did a good job of keeping passengers informed"

Cons: "Obnoxious crew, repeating the same instructions over and over. No food, no entertainment. Short flight though."

Pros: "My flight home was surprisingly faster than I thought it would take and the entire time I was comfortable and relaxed."

Pros: "The crew members were welcoming and the cabin was clean."
Cons: "Only limited drinks were available and then the flight attendant forgot to bring the water I requested. Thankfully it was a short flight, so it wasn't that big of a deal."

Pros: "It was all pretty bad."
Cons: "The baggage policy wasn’t enforced at all, so I realized I could have saved $40 and had my backpack under my seat as my personal item since most others did. They charge for seltzer water. No internet options. Male flight attendant made inappropriate jokes and the rest of the staff was rude and blunt. Will not fly this airline again."

Pros: "Inexpensive and convenient"

Pros: "on time, polite crew"
Cons: "tight, uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "Smooth flight, great service from flight attendants."
Cons: "Yelling crying kids"

Pros: "Great customer service checkin they were very kind and patient"
Cons: "the seats are not very big"

Pros: "STAFF WAS FRIENDLY"
Cons: "SEATS ARE VERY UNCOMFORTABLE"

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: "The flight was quicker than expected"
Cons: "There was a few bugs crawling in the seat in front of me onto my food tray"

Cons: "No food"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Canceled my flight and my buddies flight when no other airlines did. Had poor customer service. Made me spend 1500 in one way flights"

Pros: "I loved how welcoming crew members were and how attentive they were. I also liked that when checking in the bag crew was very nice and tried to help and resolve any issues there were. They were professional and helpful. The trip was smooth and according to time."
Cons: "There was really nothing to complain about. Seat were a little uncomfortable, but when speaking to regular flyers they mentioned how flying is not very comfortable in any airline."

Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. To many little charges; i.e. Snack drinks, baggage going and coming, seat selection. I would consider taking another airline and paying a higher price. Faulty/broken arm rest. Flight attendants slightly rude/short with passengers. Initially, the flight was cheaper but ended up being the same cost as every other airline once all the additional charges were added. What I thought was a positive for this airline quickly became a negative outcome."

Cons: "Seats are tiny, all in flight services are for charge. However, my main complaint lies with their horrible customer service. Our flight was delaid, ultimately cancelled, and no one from the frontier staff informed us of the change, why it was cancelled, or when we would be rebooked."

Pros: "Good Fly, nice atention and good landing"
Cons: "the seats do not recline"

Pros: "The flight itself was OK considering the price."
Cons: "My luggage (and those of a few other passengers) did not arrive with me and I spent one hour for bagage claim. There was no clear reason for that: it was a direct flight and the luggage was registered two hour before the departure. However the luggage was finally delivered to my hotel the next morning."

Pros: "I liked who I sat next to."
Cons: "We had to pay for our carry on, our phones wouldn't scan for the ticket, lines were long, I had to run all the way back to print our tickets out, women working outside of the gate were so rude, no tv, thin and uncomfortable seats, just overall disappointing."

Pros: "Check in was done quickly"

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

Pros: "All though no food, short flight, nice price and great service and they are organized, I give a five star."
Cons: "The chair did not recline."

Pros: "The seats are comfortable."
Cons: "Did I mention that half of the flight was missing their luggage??"

Pros: "Boarding process was easy Crew were attentive On time I didn't pay for a seat, but got a window anyway"
Cons: "Checked bag and seat fees Seats do not recline Charge for water! Tray tables are half the size of typical trays, but I guess since they don't feed people, it's not much of a problem"

Pros: "Saa"
Cons: "Saa"

Cons: "My flight never happened. I was supposed to fly on a Thursday, but because I was passing through Denver and a blizzard had closed the airport the DAY BEFORE, Frontier's flight was cancelled on Thursday. First I spend an hour and fifteen minutes on hold before finally giving up and calling back in the middle of the night. Then I waited fifteen minutes to speak to someone, who informed me that the earliest they could get me a flight would be TUESDAY. That is FOUR DAYS from my day of departure. My only options were a refund or a Tuesday flight. I asked to speak to a manager, but the employee refused to transfer me and eventually hung up on me. This was hands down the worst customer service experience I have ever had with an airline. I am still fighting for a refund, after I had to purchase a day-of flight with another airline to reach my destination. It required me to fly from a different airport and to a different airport, which was a nightmare for my other travel plans. Needless to say, I will never fly Frontier airlines again, and will never recommend them to anyone."

Pros: "Cheap fare."
Cons: "The remodeled interior puts the seats closer together from front to back and don't recline. That also limits the size of the tray table, which is tiny. Even as a tiny, short person, it was uncomfortable. For anyone of normal stature it would be torture. Paying for a "better" seat appears to provide very little if any added benefit, just keeps your party together. There is no entertainment, movies, music, or wifi so bring your battery pack charger. There is only expensive junk food to eat. My only option on my coast to coast flight was a red eye. So you arrived just wiped out. So if you do this to save money, in my overall assessment, it's just not worth it. I'll never do it again."

Pros: "overall it was good."
Cons: "I HATE the bag fees"

Pros: "Cheap if you have baggage."
Cons: "Cheap. No included snacks or drinks. No real tray table. Seats don't recline. Have to pay for all bags."

Pros: "Great company, good service, no complaints"
Cons: "You have to pay for food"

Pros: "Flight was cancelled due to weather.. we understand. Leaving my 70 yr old mother at the gate for 8 hours...not cool.Tried calling airport, Frontier airlines...and besides giving my m,om a place on next flight at 6 30 am. No one and I mean no one at Frontier tried to help us get a safe place for my mom. Instead we got an international call center with a nice operator that did not understand us. You really need a call center in America, with real people that belong to our culture. Stop sending our customer service off our country...and for a change hire americans. By the way I need you to give my mom 5 free flights to Denver and to San Diego Round trip. Thanks!"

Cons: "Baggage fees were ridiculous and the seats were very uncomfortable. Take off and landings were very rough."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours, and they didn't even offer coffee or refreshment on the plane as compensation for our delay since we missed our dinner with our loved ones."

Pros: "Very nice crew. Smooth boarding - quick and efficient."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable."

Pros: "It got me from A-B"
Cons: "This airline has gone downhill. Charging for carry on luggage and seat selection. No entertainment or Wifi. uncomfortable seats that do not recline. No complimentary ANYTHING. People will say this is the future, but the future is bleak. I will most likely not fly this airline again."

Pros: "Super low rate - on time flight a day after a massive storm blanketed Denver with a foot of snow. I assume I have to pay for each breath I take on a Frontier flight so it's never a surprise. A la carte is fine with me when a 3,000 mile round trip is $81.- Nice attendant at luggage check-in moved me to a window seat which was appreciated."
Cons: "Frontiers website is the worst in the airline industry."

Pros: "The crew was great. We flew into some particularly bad weather and the cockpit crew did an excellent job landing the airplane. Some passengers even applauded once we were safely on the ground. The fair was - reasonable. The plane appeared to be new-ish and was pretty clean."
Cons: "A fee for EVERYTHING. I think I knew Frontier charged for everything but forgot when making my last minute reservation to see my ailing father. When it was time to check in on-line, it appeared every seat was either considered a premium seat or was not available. Middle seats and seats near the lav were considered premium. And the fee was either $20 or $35. I elected not to pay for a premium seat and took my chances that I would actually get a seat when I checked in at the counter. I believe they also charge for soda."

Cons: "No free soft drinks.."

Pros: "All the crew and do tier employees I interacted with where very friendly and curious! I had a broken leg and they made sure that I was taken care of"
Cons: "The seats we're very hard... No leg room at all (even in the stretch seating area. I was not offered any complimentary snacks or drinks."

Pros: "We had a flight attendant that yelled at passengers to "sit down! Right now!" When I asked if they could take my water cup they snapped at me and told me that I needed to wait. Waiting wasn't the problem, but aren't flight attendants supposed to be nice? No where does it say that military get free bags I wound up paying 70 this trip that could have been avoided."

Pros: "Flight was on time and staff were friendly."
Cons: "Was not aware that I would have to pay for baggage until trying to do online check-in. Very expensive...and who charges for a carry-on?? Tray tables were a joke - you couldn't fit anything on them. And you had to pay for drinks and snacks. Felt like I was being nickle and dimed which left a sour taste in my mouth."

Cons: "AWFUL. I arrived at the airport 1 hour and 10 minutes before my flight. I attempted to check in at a kiosk, which failed and I was told to line up to see a clerk. I got in the ticketing/check-in line and was waiting for a while when a clerk asks if anyone was flying to San Diego and that they were in the wrong line. I was redirected to the additional services line, and when I finally saw the clerk, was told that I had missed the 45 minute check-in deadline. They refused to help me look for another flight, and was told my ticket was nonrefundable even though the misdirection was the airline's fault and their lack of communication. They should've posted signs if passengers on a specific flight needed to be in a specific line for check-in. Furthermore, their lack of willingness to rectify the situation was just a poor demonstration of customer service. I will definitely not be flying with Frontier ever again."

Cons: "I have flown on several different airlines thru out my lifetime but Frontier is the worst. All other airlines give you soda and coffee for free. Frontier charges you $1.99 with a credit card for a cup of coffee. I flew from DIA to San Diego Dec 23,2015 with a carry on bag. But coming Home from San Diego to DIA Dec 27.2015 my bag grew 2"inches longer and I was forced to pay a extra $45.00. It's was the same carry on bag I took to San Diego. I travel a lot and know many people all over the United States who travel and I would not ever return flying FRONTIER or would I recommend it to anyone else. P.S. I measure my carry one bag before I left Denver. Poor service!!!!!"

Cons: "Flight attendant put his dick in my face!!!"

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: "Nothing, was not on the flight."
Cons: "With flying Frontier, I was never clearly made aware that if I wasn't present 45 minute prior to flight departure that I wouldn't be able to check in. I was flying out of CID, a smaller airport that rarely takes anytime at all to get checked in and go through security. I arrived approximately 35-40 minutes prior to flight departure and found out that I wasn't able to get checked in. The flight was even delayed, and I could have easily gotten through security in time, as there was no line. Had I been clearly told that I would be unable to board the flight if I wasn't checked in 45 minutes prior, I would have. I was one of 4 people there that had the same problem. Please in the future make this more clear with Frontier communications!"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "That I had to fly Frontier and get robbed by them at the holidays."

Pros: "It was a short flight, the customer service rep waived the carry on charge for me."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour. Food was EXTREMELY expensive. Non alcoholic drinks weren't free like most carriers. Seats didn't recline. There is a $40 carry on fee for luggage! $60 if you wait until you get to the gate. (The at gate rep was kind enough to waive the fee for me however) No on-flight entertainment. This plane was BASIC. No wifi, no tvs."

Pros: "Everything was great! Not sure why everyone else had so many issues : / As far as people being charged for carry on bags, they just didn't read all the details, but that's not the fault of the airlines. My crew was fun and helpful, although I didn't need anything. I would fly with Frontier again!"

Pros: "The long ride did not have any movies playing or the option to buy them. You charge for water and ice when that should be a courtesy."
Cons: "The long ride did not have any movies playing or the option to buy them. You charge for water and ice when that should be a courtesy."

Cons: "Need: better menu options, more comfortable seats, better sized tray tables, $30 for a carry-on is ridiculous"

Pros: "I liked that I landed safely to my destinations, but thats about it."
Cons: "1) The cost of the carry-on/checked bag. They do not notify you in any way that there are charges for either of these. There is no incentive to bring a carry-on as it is more expensive. The company also doesn't let you know you can get a discounted price if you check your bag online. 2) I wasn't ever sent a 24 hour check in, so I wasn't even offered the deal to check my bag online to get a discount 3) When I tweeted about my disappointment with the hidden baggage fee, I was rudely tweeted back "Correction, it's not that expensive, it's $30 if you check in early" which i was never offered. 4) In my 2 hour flight the attendants didn't even offer drinks until halfway through the flight. 5) I had difficulties making it to the airport an hour and a half before my flight but still made it within an hour. The lady that checked me in told me that I was late, they were going to charge me a fee, and they wouldn't hold the plane for me but i should try and make it there any way. She even wrote "don't hold" on my ticket. I thought i was going to be the last one on the plane the way she scolded me and I ended up being the first of 15 people after me that were running even later than me. Overall, this airline tries to make people feel like they are getting a great discount but after the fees and the rude customer service I am never flying this company again."

Cons: "Frontier's customer service was awful. No one would help me check-in. I arrived 40 minutes early, plenty of time to get through security and to my gate in this small airport, but I was then informed that I couldn't check in since it was less than 45 minutes before departure. The e-ticket kiosk wouldn't print my ticket, and no one was able to help me. I talked to a number of different personel to no avail. I would gladly have accepted a flight later that night or a partial refund, but Frontier wasn't willing to work with me at all."
