Delta didn't have a pilot for our flight. We were delayed 2 hours while they "searched" for one. Then after they found one that pilot was over hours for the day and refused to fly. So they found another one. Then the flight attendants had to go home and they needed to find a new crew. By the time they were done we were delayed 6 hours from our original flight. I used to love flying Delta. The last few flights have been awful. Sounds like its because of poor company management, hiring, and not giving their pilots raises. They are no longer my first choice for flights.

Cons: "See above"
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."

Workers on the ground don't care, or either don't know what's next on the transit through the airport."

Pros: "On time Clean airplane Smooth ride Friendly staff"

Cons: "Was stuck with the middle seat so I knew what I was in for."
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: "Una hora de retraso"
Cons: "Una hora de retraso"
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."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Moron putting the seat back in front of me"

Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable."
Pros: "yes, no on sat on my row coming or going"

Pros: "The crew was pleasant. The flight was smooth even though we flew through clouds the whole way."

Cons: "Usual complaints - chaos boarding and deplaning, poor entertainment options for free, headset not working. Had to deplane by stairs - we were parked next to an unused jetway."
Cons: "Snacks could be better....seats are small.... it was freezing....no free WiFi and no Tv"
Pros: "Whole row to myself. Greqt movie, in early and informative pro of a captain."
Cons: "Less passengers or bigger plane means more room. Everything was perfect except for being uncomfortably cramped."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Absolutely NOTHING"
Cons: "I WANT MY MONEY BACK. We were stuck on a plane for 10 HOURS. No food available. Just sitting there. Communication from the crew SUCKED. Their staffing sucked. I WANT MY MONEY BACK"

Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Baggage was not that faster but was still okay Although improvements will be great"

Cons: "The only BBQ in Dallas Airport Terminal C is a chain spot....boooo!"
Pros: "Would fly again- irritated at how does a flight manage to get overbooked"
Cons: "Flight was 3 seats overbooked, they had to wait until 3 people willingly took a later flight. Like a game of chicken between 100 people."
Pros: "On time . No significant delays cost of ticket low."
Cons: "Tiny plane with small seats never that comfortable."
Cons: "rerouted through Philadelphia."
Pros: "They rerouted me so I at least salvaged some of my trip."

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."

Pros: "Went without a hitch"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "On-time departure from PHL; on-time arrival in RIC, my checked bag was on the flight."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "If there was ever a staff that was more eager to shirk responsibility I have never encountered it. At this point you might as well crash the plane and blame a duck. I am personally offended at the shear incompetence of the people employed by your "company.""
Pros: "Although the crew encountered a maintenance issue with the aircraft, another aircraft was provided and we were able to take off within an hour. So glad it wasn't cancelled!"
Cons: "Could not bring a guest into the Admirals Club during the flight delay, although I was allowed to do so on the same outbound leg. There seems to be inconsistency in the way the guest policy is applied (e.g., flying first class international)."
Cons: "2 hours late. Kept moving the boarding time by 10min"
Pros: "Great first class staff."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "there was no entertainment for a very long flight. also, it was night time, and the fasten seatbelt signs are so big and bright that it is impossible to go to sleep! Our plan was delayed for 2 hours, meaning we did not get in until 230am. it was exhausting!"
Pros: "The crew on the flight were nice and helpful. Even though it was a short flight"

Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "3 hour delay due to maintenance issues on two planes."
Cons: "I was so sick of waiting for the delay and remembering my horrible previous flight that I opted to meet my friend who lives in North Carolina and will be driving home to Richmond instead."
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."

No food, no comfortable seats but at least staff was decent.

Charging for water is unexceptable. Food was ridiculously over price for horrible food.

It was the worst flight ever. I don't even know where to begin. My mom was supposed to fly around 6:30pm and a bird happened to get inside the engine. They kept rescheduling the flight all the way until 12am and no one knew what was happening. My mom had to get a hotel to stay tge night. The next day they rescheduled her flight for 11am and the same thing happened. They had no food until 1:30pm and finally left around 2:45pm. This was insane.

One flight attendant was rude to several customers. She was much older than the other three. They were great. I’m a senior citizen so this is not a knock on old people. Not a smile the entire flight. She even chastised a fellow flight attendant. She should not be working in the public eye and representing Allegiant Air

Delayed 4 hours!!!

Flight was very good, no problem

Very delayed

Flight delayed 1.5 hours.

Flight was full. Flight crew was chippy and acted like they didn't want to be there. Lady at the boarding gate was same way.

Very clean flight. The attendants were very helpful and patient!

My only real issue was that when I booked this flight through Kayak, I somehow booked via BudgetAir.com (though I was on your website.) Due to this, I was unable to access boarding passes coming or going via the Kayak app, or the Allegient app. Luckily I was able to print them prior to leaving home (and the resort printed them for on the way back), but using this site is definitely something I'll have to consider for my trip. I should have been able to access boarding passes electronically via the app regardless.

Cons: "I don't think any sanitization took place in between the people who rushed off the plane and when my flight boarded."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful Everything was on time"
Cons: "Very bumpy ride (not anyone's fault) Very uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Great price. Wonderful flight. Seats are so close knees touched the whole flight."
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding."
Cons: "Should offer free water at least."
Cons: "Late to load and then put us all on the plane and made us sit on tarmac for over 1 1/2 hours"
Pros: "The boarding was quick and efficient, the plane was really clean."
Cons: "It would be nice to be able to recline the seat, and if at least water was served (even if snacks and other drinks cost money)."
Pros: "Cool"
Cons: "Good"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very kind, attentive and caring. There was a special needs girl in the same row as me that was by herself and they were always making sure she was okay and comfortable as well as the rest of the plane."
Pros: "Late"
Cons: "Be on time"
Pros: "Comfort nice cool cabin on boarding"
Cons: "No complaints with airline but flight was a little ruff on approach made me a little nauseous."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the price was low."
Cons: "Communication during our delay."
Pros: "LEFT EARLY ARRIVED EARLY PERFECT"
Cons: "I cancelled this flight and somehow it doesn’t show in your records and now I cant find the cancellation.. I am not in Orlando.. last time I will use Kayak."
Pros: "the staff was nice."
Cons: "the soda can was 2$ and for a rum and coke 20$, the plane was uncomfortable"
Pros: "All went well. No real disappointments!"
Cons: "A little cramped but not terrible. Would like to know kayak fee up front before booking and all hidden charges!"
Pros: "For exception of price there is nothing I liked about"
Cons: "Uncooperative ground crew App doesn't work if you are not from the US"
Pros: "somehow after waiting on tamarac for half hour, we still got to Asheville, destination, on time."
Cons: "boarding in the rain, areas to check your bag and check in were so crowded you couldn't even find a proper line calling out names, some of the voices couldn't be heard no one available to answer questions what line a person should get in.som"
Cons: "5 delays between for a 4:27PM flight that eventually took off at 3:15am. My biggest issue is the unrealistic delay that could have left us in the airport for 11+ hours. Very thankful that they did allow me to change departure locations to another airport at no charge. That flight went well, even arrived early."
Pros: "The check-in line moved quickly and our representative was very friendly and encouraged us to download the app rather than pay for boarding passes. Good experience all around"
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: "None"
Cons: "Ground personnel"
Cons: "Ground crew at ticket very slow and inefficient. Two groups missed their flight because of it."
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Last minute delay due to a plane malfunction. Was told very last minute. Seemed like there were no quick resolutions in play. Had to wait over three hours to fly out, doesnt that entail compensation by law?"
Cons: "Left/ arived 30" late"
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."
Cons: "Moving from one gate to another. The three hour delay. It appeared that no one person really knew what they were doing. The disabled in wheel chairs we left on there own. One elderly woman literally fell out of her wheel chair to the floor. I was discusseded by the events of the airline."
Pros: "Although we were late to our gate, the Allegiant staff made sure that we were able to board our plane on time."
Cons: "Worst plane trip. I am a bigger girl, and I could not even buckle my seat belt due to the size of the chair. I have never had this issue on any other plane flight. It was incredibly noisy, and rough ride. I will not travel again."
Pros: "Well, it was a somewhat inexpensive flight out of a convenient terminal."
Cons: "I say somewhat cheap, because by the time they ala carte everything, it's not so cheap anymore. As in no longer cheap enough to justify the bare bones service. The flight attendants are basically candy salespeople. I typically need help putting things in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant actually told me it wasn't her job. That indeed may be the airline's bad policy, but she also thought her way of expressing it was appropriate, which it is not. That has to come straight from the top. Also, what kinda janky airline doesn't serve complementary water. Probably the biggest deal though was that my flight was delayed for 2 hours both ways due to a maintenance issue. I know air travel is fairly safe, but given the track record of both Allegiant and Airbus, I was a little worried during the flights. Even though this particular route is convenient for me, I'm going to avoid Allegiant."
Pros: "Everything was great during the flight but..."
Cons: "We were delayed over 7 hours, with only a $50 dollar future airline credit and an $8 meal voucher. That's not nearly enough for that kind of headache. It was 2 am before we arrived at our hotel."
Pros: "I arrived less then 5 hours late"
Cons: "No free peanuts, no free pritzells,no tv show, no movie"
Pros: "No lay overs"
Pros: "Cabin crew was very helpful and polite. One in particular expressed a great sense of humor throughout the flight and had a great rapport w/ passengers. Flight was on-time. Fare was $111 compared to around $375 to Orlando. I was able to fit this flight into my scheduled so saved the company $$."
Cons: "Can't blame Allegiant for a noisy child, but there was a child across the aisle from me who shrieked and talked loudly THE WHOLE FLIGHT. I was trying to sleep and was NOT pleased. I like a good fare, but selling a can of Coke on the flight for $2 seems a bit extreme. Glad there are cut-rate airlines out there as an option, but I won't be flying them any more than necessary."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Pros: "I liked how friendly the staff were and how everything was done on time."
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: "initial price seemed great..."
Cons: "price seemed great until you add up all additional charges for carry on bags, seat selection take off was over 35 min late passengers seemed to be an inconvenience to attendants. air on & of valve f at seats was jammed & didn't turn off attendants said "oh well sorry""
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was canceled but they keep telling us that in an hour and that hour never came. We are stuck at the airport. We should get upgraded to 1st class"
Cons: "On time arrival."
Cons: "This is one of several times I have flown United, and been delayed at the last minute and then excessively delayed with no communication. Once we finally boarded we sat on the tarmac another 30 minutes before we started take-off process and only THEN did anyone tell us what was going on. We got the feeling the flight was delayed all day - would have preferred a heads up so we could have enjoyed more time NOT in the airport!!!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cramped. Baggage was out on another flight. Should've contacted me for me to travel on earlier flight with my luggage. Waited over one hour in cramped plane before take off. Plane ended up being 1 hour 45 min late."
Cons: "No apologies for being delayed. More than 4 hours. No explanation. Nothing. Awful service."
Pros: "i got home."
Cons: "Delayed over an hour waiting on the crew. Seems perhaps common with this flight since I had a problem with the leg coming up earlier in the week."
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: "Never got the chance to make it to Norfolk with United. They would not provide us a plane same day or our money back or money for the rental car we required."
Pros: "Boarding seemed smother than usual. I had an issue with a large back pack that wouldn't fit in the overhead due to a smaller plane travelling to Houston from Des Moines, Flight attendant was extremely helpful as it was expensive camera equipment and was able to stow it so that i didn't have to check it at the door. Most appreciated their sensitivity."
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Chicago"
Cons: "The temperature on the plane was awful! It was absolutely too warm and uncomfortable. On a full flight. Arrived early again, had to sit on the plane to wait for the ground crew and then had to wait over an hour for checked luggage. Again ridiculous."
Pros: "It was smooth and enjoyable."
Pros: "crew helped me get on flight from standby list and were especially helpful at gate"
Cons: "at first they told me i would have to check carryon at gate even though i had measured it and kbew it would fit under seats."
Pros: "Decent room on the flight. No food or drink."
Cons: "It wasn't until AFTER everyone boarded the plane at 9:45 that they informed us that " they only had until midnight to reboot their system so they HAVE to do it RIGHT THEN" then they informed us twice that it was "stuck" and "not working" our plane was supposed to land at 11:18 and we didn't take off until 11:00. My husband has work at 5:30 in the morning as well as my brother who was supposed to pick us up and they are in the navy so being late isn't an option. My brother could no longer pick us up due to the fact that we did t get our luggage until 1 in the morning and he has work in a few hours so we had to wait for a taxi and pay a buttload to get home in Virginia Beach. NOT PLEASED!!"
Pros: "We arrived there early"
Pros: "Friendly service,. On time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everybody was so friendly"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Quick and easy. Nice crew."
Cons: "Tight seats, full flights"
Pros: "The lady crew member was so sweet and kind."
Cons: "The first seat on the plane you couldn't see out the window because it was blurred with dirt or something, there was no foot room"
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: "Crew were great"
Cons: "$27 for a double Jack and (1/2 a can) Coke and a beer seems excessive."
Cons: "Had to be transferred to a different airline because my first flight was delayed which would have made me miss my connecting flight."
Cons: "The airplane needed to be swapped, which caused an hour delay and made me miss my flight"
Cons: "Due to snowstorm, my flight was rescheduled with Delta. I was on hold on the phone for almost an hour and half to change my flight."
Cons: "The flight to Dulles was okey but flight to Norfolk was constant shaking of airplane without any explanation from the pilot of the problem and everyone was a little uptight wondering what was going on. Crew un able to do any of their duties! Very Unpleasant. Not sure I will fly United again!"
Pros: "I loved it"
Cons: "I never feel you stay alert to make sure the earlier people don't take up all the overhead bins . It is not right the way you allow them to overload have too many big carryons"
Pros: "Second flight was a million times better"
Pros: "At least I made it"
Cons: "Flight attendant for United 426 to Chicago was rude, flight delayed and they weren't very helpful"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lack of updates"
Pros: "Everything's on time"
Cons: "No,"
Cons: "The snack"
Cons: "People carry to many carry-on's and many times to large but the policy is not enforced."
Pros: "Kind men beside me"
Cons: "I will never accept the last row of seating EVER!!! I have a bruised knee and double sprained ankles and could not lean back. It was the most awful flight of my like. I could barely get out of the row. I sat in 39A. Horrible I tell you."
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: "Flight on time, no delays or problems"
Cons: "Seating for midgets"
Pros: "We were nearly 2 hours late. Terrible."
Cons: "We were nearly 2 hours late. Terrible."
Cons: "Flight was delayed a total of 3.5 hours with each delay being posted as 30 minutes. Very little information provided by the gate employees. On this trip we flew a total of 4 legs (with 5 boarding opportunities due to one leg being rescheduled to the next day as a result of delays) and had "mechnical delays" on 4 of the 5 boarding opportunities. We won't be flying United again."
Pros: "As usual the staff were great! The flight was on time."
Cons: "No snacks were distributed. I would've thought they could've handed out pretzels or peanuts."
Pros: "Flight itself was good. Nice flight attendants. Funny pilot."
Cons: "The lady at desk to board the flight made me check my carry on. I had assumed it was because the plane was full, but when I got on the plane there were more than adequate spots to stow more bags. There was a compartment across from my seat that remained open the entire flight. While I completely understand the need to check extra luggage when the plane is full, I was very upset when I saw it was not. I intentionally fly with a carry on for the convenience, and to be inconvenienced for absolutely no reason made me not want to fly with this company again for fear it could happen again in the future."
Pros: "Honestly nothing. The flight was a disaster."
Cons: "Second flight of the day with zero drink service. I suppose the hostesses were too busy napping and eating their dinner as they never left the last row of the plane. They sure had drinks and dinner even though we didn't. Also should have cancelled or delayed the flight rather than make us wait forever on the plane waiting for a new route to miss weather at our destination."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
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: "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"
Cons: "Obnoxious crew, repeating the same instructions over and over. No food, no entertainment. Short flight though."
Pros: "Everything was great and the trip was on time perfect"
Pros: "Peaceful"
Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick and staff was friendly. I was in an emergency row so I had a little extra leg room in my middle seat. Also had wifi on this flight."
Cons: "Snacks need to be updated. I prefer the good old fashion pretzels, so maybe providing an option would be better."

All goid

eDreams bought two tickets as one trip. For that reason my baggage stay in Orlando. That’s on eDreams. The app is not friendly neither the app of Frontier. I enjoy traveling with Frontier but next time I will purchase directly with them.

Pros: "Crew was good and flight was fine."
Cons: "I would like to say that I wish your company cared more about people during this troubling time dealing with COVID situations. Your plane was jam packed with people in the front half, and the last 8 rows of the plane had nobody in the seats. I thought we were supposed to stay distanced as best as possible but I think you should really reevaluate how your system works."
Cons: "I did not like that we had to pay for a drink or anything. The flight was uncomfortable no space and just not what I thought. First and last time flying frontier"
Pros: "Ticket agent and crew were very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Downloaded the Frontier app, but could not get my boarding pass. Had to go to ticket agent at airport. Baggage charges confusing."
Cons: "I was double charged for ian in flight purchase.... Maybe don't do that?"
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: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Everything before that."
Pros: "Crew did fairly well under the circumstances. Clean aircraft."
Cons: "4 hour delay because frontier either doesn’t contract for or refuses to pay for deicing services in Phoenix. The pilot stated that Sky Harbor doesn’t have deicing services which I personally know to be false because southwest and delta both have deicing services and their is a deicing location at the airport. Instead we waited for the sun to thaw the airplane and further waited for a fuel truck afterwards. Only the first three rows have reclining seats that you pay extra for. I only recommend frontier for SHORT commutes, as the seats really are that uncomfortable with very little padding. NEVER AGAIN!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After Frontier charged me $50 for a carry-on bag absolutely nothing was good about the flight other than the 1:30 flight time. I couldn't wait to get off of the plane. Frontier charges you for every little thing. It is no wonder the exit row seats were empty too. They charged an extra $47.50 on the flight to Orlando so I opted out for the return flight. No more flights on Frontier for me."
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"
Cons: "Cheep and with all the things I paid wxtra next time I will fly regular airlines"
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."
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: "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: "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: "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 airplane was a 14 years old plane so it was not comfortable to sit at all. Not recommended overall."
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"
