Pros: "Sanitized, open middle seats, comfortable"
Cons: "We were stuck on the tarmac for 40+ minutes due to our gate being blocked by another plane. We almost missed our connection and had to run through the airport with our luggage and the staff at our second gate yelling “hurry up” at us like it was our fault."

Pros: "Sanitized, open middle seats, comfortable"
Cons: "We were stuck on the tarmac for 40+ minutes due to our gate being blocked by another plane. We almost missed our connection and had to run through the airport with our luggage and the staff at our second gate yelling “hurry up” at us like it was our fault."
Cons: "Bad social distance"
Cons: "Too hot. Bathrooms were dirty. No leg space in comfort+."
Pros: "The two people who were in charge of boarding the plane were especially nice, efficient, and accommodating. I really really liked them."
Cons: "The flight was too warm."
Cons: "My flight was delayed almost 3 hours. Not good. Once in the air it was fine."
Pros: "They didn’t want to help"
Cons: "Hour late and no wifi!"
Cons: "It was just the weather. I don't handle turbulence well. Delta crew was amazing as always."
Pros: "In flight service was fast and well organized. The dinner was very good. Flight was turbulent free and no isues."
Cons: "The plane was at the gate but it took over an hour for international inspection and a long time for the plane to be cleaned."
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: "Again, crew was very friendly. It's nice to be welcomed aboard. The male flight attendant found me a blanket after I requested it. Also I appreciate the free entertainment options on the WiFi."
Cons: "Ambient low lighting was pretty much non-existent in that old MD88."
Cons: "Didn't I could pick my seat. I was assigned my seat. I like window seats. Either leg of the trip was a window seat."
Cons: "Cabin was cold enough to store meat. Entertainment system was poor at best. And, of course, the seats were too small and uncomfortable. Time to start looking at other airlines."
Pros: "Very good check in and customs, etc at both airports especially RDU."
Cons: "Only fair to good in flight service."
Pros: "left on time and arrived early"
Cons: "no legroom even in first class."
Pros: "Awesomeness"
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."
Pros: "Everyone who has a kid knows how challenging certain things can be in a flight and for me the combination of a night flight interrupting my baby’sschedule + a full flight it equalized disaster. My daughter could not get comfortable for the love of life and I just felt horrible and frustrated and what sucked most was the 9 year old and her obese father siting in our row that kept giving us weird looks."
Cons: "There’s NO room in planes between seats. It’s 2018 and new planes must be done ASAP to accommodate people better. I’m 5’1” and 110 lbs but adding my 25lb daughter siting in my lap before she turns 2 is absurd to expect that it will be comfortable whatsoever for us or the people breathing next to us. Please DELTA, lead by example and make sure your planes are designed with more room in between and around the seats. In my opinion, every seat should be first class."
Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"
Pros: "Cannot. Figure out how to use the wifi."
Cons: "Mechanical repair on nose wheel"
Pros: "The plane, the seating, and the service was outstanding, great entertainment setup with the movies."
Pros: "Smooth flight Courteous"

Pros: "The in flight movie and fast boarding"
Cons: "Couldn't get a receipt for baggage fee"
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding. Quick flight"
Cons: "Audio entertainment quite limited"
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."
Pros: "friendly staff check in was fast food was good"
Cons: "as always not enough room in the seats"
Pros: "The temp"
Cons: "It was too hot."
Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"
Pros: "Service and staff"
Pros: "The gate crew was great, so was the flight crew. My journey home was quite calming."
Cons: "The delay, I know it was due to storms."
Pros: "That they got me to where I was going"
Cons: "The fact that Aeromexico/Delta and their predatory pricing charged us 28USD for a checked bag in an INTERNATIONAL flight, in clear defiance of Mexico's Law of Civil Aviation new reform. Also, shame on you Kayak for not bringing this up to our attention when buying our tickets."
Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."
Pros: "I board sky priority or sooner so it always goes well."
Cons: "Delta could do a little more to align people behind the right zone pillars when lining up for boarding. Passengers especially those not used to flying or flying with Delta are always confused. Maybe some stripping on the floor could help or pillars at the front and midway back."
Pros: "What is the issue?"
Pros: "Some of the ground staff was trying to be helpful."
Cons: "That we had to sleep like homeless people on the floor of JFK airport as the airline was not able to provide for a crew and therefore cancelled the flight. The airline cancelled the flight at 1.30 in the morning so no one was able to get a stay in a hotel not did the airline take any action towards helping the stranded passengers. We were given blankets and pillows. The best thing was the ground staff getting rude after all passengers complaining. They were basically saying we should get stuffed since we were booked for a flight next day same day. This is shameful! Needless to say that I will not fly this airline again!"
Pros: "Quick boarding, nice staff, good entertainment available."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Business as usual and we actually arrived abit earlier than projected. Cudos to the pilot and crew."
Pros: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled so we didn't have to run to catch our connecting flight."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."
Pros: "Good heads up to turbulence."
Cons: "We were delayed. Then they boarded us and we left the gate to then sit out in the 108F sun. They knew before we pushed back the wheels up time was extended again."
Pros: "On time great staff"
Cons: "Little cold"
Pros: "Hospitable crew"
Cons: "Na, nothing special"
Pros: "As Scheduled, staff hospitality"
Cons: "+$25 extra each bag, seats not near travel companion"
Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"
Pros: "Not too much this leg!"
Cons: "Baggage retrieval was horrendous! Absolutely a nightmare which after paying for 3 nights hotel with no discount, I was further inconvenienced by the inability to receive my 2nd luggage and after requesting it be delivered, I, I, tracked my bag and you chose to send it 3 days ahead to my destination and I HAVE NOT RECEIVED any acknowledgment of my online inquiry which is why I am complaining. I've had to purchase a new set of luggage AND will have to pay for them on my next 2 legs on Delta. I apologise for seeming so harsh as I know you've had so much trouble because of the tornadoes, but this leg of my trip cost me an additional $800.00 plus AUD and I was here in the US to care for my father who recently had a 2nd heart attack and my final days in USA were meant to be a holiday, and all I can say is the stress because these expenses have removed any enjoyment (I know I'm looking at this half empty, not half full). I'm glad to share this and hope you're company loses will be recouped after this mess! Daniel Grayson Craigieburn, VIC Australia"

Cons: "Great price. Wonderful flight. Seats are so close knees touched the whole flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Crew there and back. Professional and fun"
Cons: "When boarding in Asheville. Flight crew had no control. Everyone bumrushed counter. No control of boarding. Adults boarding before parents with children. People boarding priority when they are not."

Cons: "Lousy airline. Left gate late and unfriendly crew. Wanted to charge me for carry on."
Pros: "Going in & out of small airports."
Cons: "We arrived late. Pricing system."
Cons: "I am so angry booking with them. I booked the flight and then thought, ok I will add a rental car. It said clearly that the rental Car could be canceled up until 24 hours before the flight. Well, 2 weeks before the flight, my friend said, don’t get a rental car, I will have my car. So I cancelled and only then did I find out that once I booked it through their site I could not get a refund for the car and I could only get a voucher for use on one of their flights! And only after they take out any fees and costs that was accrued! So angry!"
Pros: "Everyone from desk to gate to crew were very friendly. I like alla carte airlines for thier value. I dont need a free soda for and extra $100 ticket price."
Cons: "Needs better organization during boarding. Everyone piles up near the gate. Thry can copy Southwest and make the process smoother."
Pros: "Everything the service for breakfast , the interpretation for more information about when you’re in a plane what to do in case something happened and stuff"
Cons: "They didn’t have a WiFi on for the plan I couldn’t use my phone at all"
Pros: "Like the small airport quick boarding!"
Cons: "Not lots of leg room, no reclining seats, bummer everything costs extra even water. But ok for price"
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Pros: "Ease of getting on and off, direct flight home, free parking in Belleville."
Cons: "seats are ok for 2 hour flight"
Pros: "Both ways were good flights. The return flight however was delayed. We did enjoy buying some tickets from a lady named Valerie in Des Moines who also later had to come on the plane and remove an intoxicated woman. She made everything so easy and simple and enjoyable. And we especially enjoyed the treatment that we received as my husband is a veteran. Thank you so much for that."
Pros: "Flight went smooth"
Cons: "I checked into my flight with luggage to check in. The lady behind the counter said I could not check my luggage that the only way for it to get on the plane was to take it through the TSA checkpoint. They confiscated everything in my bag that was over 3oz which was quite a bit of stuff hence the reason why I was trying to check it in. I will not be flying Allegiant air again."
Pros: "Although we were late to our gate, the Allegiant staff made sure that we were able to board our plane on time."
Cons: "Flight delayed 3 hours coming in and 5 hours going back. This is unacceptable. I will never fly Allegiant Airlines again."
Cons: "I flew to my "surprised" 50th bday party with family and to meet more family. The aircraft problems overheated engine, caused us to get out of the plane, move all luggages and wait foe a new plane that also had to be cooled off before reboarding. We were tired and hungry. Missed my bday with family. Very very disappointed."
Cons: "7 hour delay. Giving us delays in increments so we couldn't make a decision to leave."
Pros: "Nothing. We were scheduled to fly back to Vegas at 7:07 then delayed to 8:30 then 10 pm then 11:25 pm now 1:15 am. This is unbelievable, unacceptable and ridiculous! And I have to work the next day. This is unacceptable! I just received another update that now we're leaving at 1:45 am . Please do not, again do not use Allegheny EVER again!!"
Cons: "So many delays. This airline is unreliable, unprofessional! Ridiculous! Please read my comments above. Do not use Allegiant!"
Cons: "2 hour delay, plus a filthy plane with bloody toilet seat, completely bathroom fail."
Pros: "Best flight for its Price. It was on time."
Pros: "That fact that they did not suply even one free bottle or cup of water is awful. I was very thirsty but did not get a drink because they chaged $2.00 for one bottle of water, and the is just plain wrong."
Pros: "We were supposed to have boarded for 5:00, flight was at 6pm. They were missing 1 crew member and could board the plane. She showed up, then they made a announcement that the Oakland flight will be delayed till 8:10 takeoff. I was able to get on a flight to Stockton Airport without problem. They wouldnt tell me what was wrong, and i didnt want to chance that it was the last dlight to Oakland and went with Stockton. The flight was good, you have to pay for your water."
Cons: "They would tell me the problem with the plane."
Pros: "I arrived less then 5 hours late"
Cons: "No free peanuts, no free pritzells,no tv show, no movie"
Pros: "At least I arrived to Oakland eventually. A one hour flight turned into a 7 hour wait and flight"
Cons: "7 hours from Vegas to Oakland. I could have driven. I deserve a reufind voucher"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Crew was amazing & child friendly."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "5 hour delay. They offered meal vouchers. For 8 dollar like wtf? But of course they offered them after every place closed in the airport."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about them"
Cons: "They made me pay 100 dollars for two bags that would of fit under the seat"
Pros: "friendly crew clean plane, speedy service"
Cons: "That you charge for every little thing...surprised you don't charge to use the bathrooms. Don't appreciate having to be your clean up crew either."
Pros: "Having to bug hotel staff to make sure to print boarding passes to avoid a $5 charge for each...having to pay for carry-on bags in advance and then unstuff them in the cramped aisles while boarding because the overhead compartments were too small...flight delays on each leg of the trip...staff that seemed lobotomized...seats that have a bar jamming into your lower back and don't recline.... etc., etc, etc, etc, Plus stupid coporate name and a logo that's hard on the eyes! ALLEGIANT SUCKS from its nose to its tail fin."
Pros: "everything was great everything went smoothly because some of the stuff I had to change at the last minute because I had to get home earlier than I originally planned but everything turned out wonderfully and everything okay even though there was a little delay because of the weather"
Cons: "Wondering why my initial flight to vegas from oakland wasnt up for review. That experience was terrible. It was delayed 4 hours with no explanation or other compensation. I'll do my best not to fly allegiant again."
Pros: "Spanish speaking lady employee at the counter very helpful."
Pros: "I like how cheap the ticket was!! I hope to receive more cheap offers and discounts from you guys."
Cons: "How small the airplane seats were."
Pros: "Spacious seating"
Cons: "No hot beverage's"
Pros: "I will be writing a letter to corporate."
Cons: "The service was disgusting. Everything about this airline was horrendous. Never met a more disrespectful staff"
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Check in line was LONG, flight decided to depart early, they wouldn't let my kid on the plane, and I had to pay another $75 to get her another ticket to catch a next day flight. ABSOLUTE WORST AIRLINES and WILL NEVER USE AGAIN!!"

Provide snacks

The staff is very nice.

Pros: "The staff was excellent and the boarding process was quick and smooth. While the flight was delayed, staff really did a great job moving everyone along quickly and safely."
Cons: "This was my first time flying Frontier. The flight was 2 and 1/2 hours delayed. While the boarding process was quick, the delay really put a damper on the flight. Seats were very uncomfortabe and seemed smaller than other airlines I have traveled more frequently. The carpet had gum all over it."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats were really tight."
Pros: "Great flight attendant"
Cons: "Seats too tight knees bump seat ahead"
Pros: "Orderly boarding; very friendly flight attendants who REALLY know their craft. Shortly after takeoff there was a medical energency that they handled with expertise and caring as well as authority. 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."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Cons: "Didn’t even offer water on a 3hr flight"
Pros: "The first 3 rows recline so if you get one of those it’s okay"
Cons: "They don’t even offer water. The check-in system sucks. The kiosks don’t work and the staff shows up late, even though they have posted signs that say it opens 2 hours before boarding."
Cons: "First flight was delayed so we missed out connecting flight and Frontier wouldn’t do anything about it. Save yourself time and money (and actually get where you need to go) by using literally any other airline."
Pros: "Not much to add here because not much to like"
Cons: "There was nothing on this flight. No plug ins for your phones, or music or movies or nothing. No magazine, and it was so cold I thought I was going to freeze. I flew out to Chicago on Alaskan and the fight was wonderful! But this flight was a total opposite to that flight. I took pictures of the seats to show my daughter that there was nothing. And swore at that time....never fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Waiting in line for checkin process to begin. Why can't they checkin before the two hour departure time?"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was VERY slow and not coordinated. It took longer to board this plane than international flights I have taken."
Cons: "3 + hour delay"
Pros: "Courteous flight staff. Plane was very clean"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 min"
Pros: "We got delayed for about an hour, but the made up the time."
Cons: "When unloading the plane. They didn't let the people with connection flights get off first. I almost missed my fight, due to the start delay."
Pros: "New plane and comfortable seats."
Cons: "Frontiers markup strategy"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Paying for carry on luggage."
Pros: "Cheap and valuable"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding. Although I thought it strange at first that Frontier charges for overhead storage, the storage situation was roomy even with a full flight."
Pros: "Liked the price and one male flight attendant."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice. Not many snack options. Staff left their personalities at home."
Pros: "The boarding process seemed to take less time compared to other airlines."
Cons: "There needs to be portable electronic chargers on the plane. It would definitely help to keep children entertained."
Pros: "Flights wer all on time"
Cons: "Frontier doesn't have plane wifi"
Cons: "Paying for carry one."
Pros: "Staff was very timely, considerate, and very accommodating."
Pros: "The crew on this flight was funny and outgoing! Great crew!"
Pros: "Friendly staff waived the fee for rebooking my missed flight"
Cons: "They close the counter 45 min prior to boarding. I arrived 35 minutes prior and there was no agent. I am TSA approved and it takes me 5 minutes to normally get through security. I had to miss my flight."
Pros: "cute girl next to me"
Cons: "Gate agent at Denver, as we sat for 15 minutes waiting to deplane since they didn't have the jetway ready, TYPICAL, and do us all a favor Pilots, just gwt all happy about early arrivals since without fail there's always an unnecessary delay to screw everyone. lets do better next time"
Pros: "Staff great,"
Cons: "Setting"
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: "Typical flight service (which is better than I was expecting), staff was friendly and seemed helpful"
Cons: "Taxi'ing for about 15 min one landing, getting hit with carry-on fees while checking-in, probably would not fly with them again unless I was packing very light, otherwise you should just go with a larger airline and not risk flight cancellations/delays/runway taxi."
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."
Pros: "The staff was funny and created a light-hearted and relaxed atmosphere. The flight overall was comfortable and the plane was nice."
Cons: "Paid for the flight initially. Thought it was a great rate. As it came closer to my trip all these hidden fees such as paying for the seats, paying for carryons began to appear, which was very inconvenient and unusual for a flight."
Pros: "The airplane was a 14 years old plane so it was not comfortable to sit at all. Not recommended overall."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Had to sleep overnight in the airport and spend more money booking a flight back home with another airline company. This caused me to miss work. I also didnt like being made aware of the additional cost of a carry-on item until after I purchased my ticket."
Pros: "Frontier got me where I needed to go on time with no hassles."
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."
Pros: "I got to my destination eventually."
Cons: "2 1/2+ hour delay. No communication on why until just about to board. 1 hour sitting on tarmac when we landed waiting for a gate. Completely awful experience."
Pros: "That I eventually got to Denver."
Cons: "Sitting in the airport for 3 hours to be told that we were ready, then have mechanical issues that delayed us another hour. After arriving in Denver we sat on the Tarmac for 30 minutes because another plane was at our gate. All I received was a $50.00 voucher for a future flight with frontier."
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?"
Cons: "Had to deplane, then get back on the plane, staff didn't communicate what was happening. We still didn't fly out for 45 minutes M. We had a sleepy, cranky baby because we were already flying out 2 hrs later than scheduled. No one checked in on is once. Very frustrating experience and I don't think we will fly frontier again if we can help it."
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"
