Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"

Cons: "The pain from carrying bag between gates"
Cons: "Very late"

Tix were booked and paid by two different parents and times. Agent relented and waived fee. At the gate we were again challenged and had to go thru it all again. No more United for us!"

Cons: "Charge for tv!"
Cons: "I nearly missed getting a cup of ice as the refreshment cart went up the isle. The attendant tried to give me a small sack of "snacks" instead.

Cons: "Pilot landed the plane a little on the rough side. The Tarmac was definitely felt."

Cons: "Received another handful of snack mix, which was fine. At least I knew not to eat it this time. Once the plan took off, the headrest screens asked you to pay some ridiculous amount of money to watch them for the hour that we were on the plan.

Cons: "Had to pay for my second bag, even though I prepaid for "the works." My carry on was already paid for in the prepaid package but since I decided to check it on my return leg, rather than carry it on....I had to pay $60 to check it. The funds prepaid to check one bag and carry on one bag should flex toward the carry on fee of a second bag. no curbside support."

Pros: "Really competitive price"
Pros: "Staff was awesome and efficient"
Cons: "Food options, especially since one has to purchase snacks."

Cons: "No food or entertainment and nickle and dimed on everything."
Cons: "I felt taken advantage of by the surcharges."

Cons: "The fees for seat assignments and carry on luggage. Frontier also does not accept TSA Pre-check."
Cons: "delays with NO feedback"
Pros: "In order to have cheap fares, Frontier charges fees for EVERYTHING. Carry-on luggage, anything besides water, etc. If you can fit everything you have into a small backpack and bring your own snacks, no big deal. If not, I'd recommend a different airline."
