Cons: "Smooth on time flight"

Cons: "Better accommodation for handicap passengers."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Even though I had carry on, they checked it and this made me waste my time at baggage claim rather than gate checking. Flight attendants were miserable. Power supply didn’t work at seats."

Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "Gate crew had trouble identyfing boarding pass on their computer. Difficulty getting on plane"

Pros: "Amazing crew and clean cabin."

Pros: "I loved the flight attendants and the desk staff everyone was so friendly and made me want to travel delta again."
Cons: "Delta doesn’t offer military spouses free checked bags and I found this out at the airport. It was disheartening, but at least it’s Delta and not the airline that is supposed to represent America."

Pros: "Short and easy"

Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small aircraft"

Pros: "Super friendly flight crew."

Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat with no option for me to move"

Pros: "Movie"
Cons: "Break downs again... At least this time they found another plane."

Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."

Pros: "Friendly service, comfortable seat, on time, no issues."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours delayed"

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: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."

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

Pros: "This was not my original transfer flight but everyone was much nicer and helpful than serious and being rude. Love Delta, I did not flight United because I wouldn’t have met my United flight once landing in ATL. The Young African American woman who was at the gate was amazing and so reassuring that I would make my flight to Chicago. Would book Delta, just because of how nice she was to me."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarded quickly with no fuss."

Pros: "Flt on time, very nice and friendly gate agent and flight attendant"

Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."

Cons: "Delayed"

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

Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."

Cons: "The delta studio didn't work with Android 8"

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

Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable, seats did not recline and seats way too close together."

Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."

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

Cons: "Unnecessary flight cancellation. I had friends taking the same flight at the same time at the same airport from different airlines and they came through for their customers. I received no consolation it assistance with overnight accommodations."

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: "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: "The crew was incredibly attentive and helpful."

Pros: "Easy no hassle check in and board."
Cons: "Absolutely nothing. Thank you!"

Cons: "Landing"

Cons: "Less passengers or bigger plane means more room. Everything was perfect except for being uncomfortably cramped."

Pros: "Everything was excellent"

Pros: "Comfy seat, great entertainment options"

Pros: "seat was basic. prefer having tv screens in the seatbacks as opposed to using my tiny phone as a viewing screen."
Cons: "prefer having tv screens in the seatbacks as opposed to using my tiny phone as a viewing screen. only food available besides pretzel was pay food."

Cons: "Try to be on time!"

Cons: "If we had access to the WiFi to watch shows earlier like United does, that would be nice."

Cons: "The service and courtesy of the staff wasn’t great."

Cons: "Rude staff, not willing to help"

Cons: "Poor they lost my luggage. They did not allowed me to take my suitcas whit me because the plan was too small. I never travel again whit amercan airlines"

Pros: "The jet"

Cons: "No advanced seat assignments unless we paid $100 per person?! Recently flew Delta on same equipment (A321). Delta had in-seat entertainment & adjustable head rest"

Cons: "Waited on the tarmac for over an hour before departure with very little explanation."

Cons: "There was no entertainment at all, and pretzels are gross"

Pros: "Loved the seat back lcd entertainment"
Cons: "Not accepting Apple Pay. Who wants to dig out the wallet."

Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Bad organization during boarding"

Pros: "Very nice staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Delayed a total of four hous!"

Pros: "NOTHING"

Cons: "Think it is ridiculous that I had to pay so much to select a seat ahead of time, and it was just a regular seat. I can understand for extra legroom or exit row, but for a regular seat, that is ridiculous. Then there was a fee to change priority boarding, so I could ensure I was able to have my carry-on with me, instead of risk having it go underneath. Unable to use the entertainment, as I was unaware had to use my own device, which I had not set up in advance."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Pros: "It is good"

Pros: "delayed at both sides with very little announcements keeping us updated"

Pros: "Friendly staff Smooth ride On time"

Pros: "It was five star all the way."

Pros: "Service, clean aircraft, I felt AA cares about me"
Cons: "Changing gates before boarding"

Cons: "Customer service was very poor. I had an aisle seat and one flight attendant kept hitting the back of my head and hitting my arm. At one point she rammed the beverage cart into my arm leaving a large bruise. Not once did she apologize or say excuse me. My arm was not into the aisle, part of it was just resting on the arm rest. Crew at the gate were unfriendly and surly. Walking off before answering questions when flights delayed leaving DSM for mechanical issues. My flight on the 4th was diverted due to weather and when did arrive in DFW, I checked at gate to see when I could fly out and was lied to and because of being lied to had to run through DFW uselessly. I will not be flying American again!"

Pros: "It was fine. I was comfortable and I slept throat most of it."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour after we landed. Missed my connection, no other flights that night. It wasn't even 10 pm yet."

Pros: "Everything was very professional."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "It was fine"

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Half the flight didn't wear masks, crew didn't bother to enforce."

Pros: "This was my first time flying out of South Bend and I loved the smallness of the airport and the option to take a direct flight to Vegas to cost family. No long lines and crowds made it easy to social distance."
Cons: "I would have liked it the seat reclined slightly or had the adjustable headrest so my head wouldn't flop back and forth while I took a nap."

Pros: "Fast boarding, early arrival"
Cons: "Snack offerings"

Cons: "If you dont have TSA precheck....get it...lifesaver"

Pros: "I like I can pick seats."
Cons: "Ppl putting their carry on in overhead bins nor in their row so when zone 6 (at the front of the plane) gets on, there’s no room in your overhead bin space. Crew should say to passengers to put their luggage in their area, not front of the plane."

Pros: "Not much after sitting in the airport for two extra hours on both flights"
Cons: "They could have boarded flights on time or at least explained why the flight had been delayed."

Cons: "They charge $50 for a carry on bag!!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight attendants talked loudly the whole flight. Very uncomfortable"

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."

Cons: "There was no way for us to add another bag after our seat placement. No one answered the phone for Alligent and the website didn’t work. It costs $20 extra to do this at the airport. Even though it was not our fault that there was no one answering phone calls (and no way to leave a message)"

Pros: "The crew was amazing"

Pros: "LEFT EARLY ARRIVED EARLY PERFECT"

Pros: "Nothing, honestly. Constantly delayed, cheap airline with forced fees, only one I could take and I can’t believe you exist. You have horrible customer service"
Cons: "I will never fly you again. Sure you don’t care."

Cons: "Delays!!"

Cons: "Bags charge for 105$"

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: "It was easy to book. And they helped me make changes to my flight schedule without charging me"
Cons: "Everything else is charged... from the in service beverage cart, to your boarding pass. Your baggage. Everything you have to pay for. So just be prepared for that."

Pros: "Better than on time Smooth sailing through south bend airport!"
Cons: "Just have to remember thrift airline No seat going back"

Cons: "baggage staff was super rude. She told me I am the last passenger on the plane which wasn't true. She made me pay $50 because of little overweight. I could easily redistribute the weight among my bags if she gave me little chance. I was a single mom with two kids (3 months and 3 years old) had to pay a fine which I can't afford. Thanks for giving me the chance to express my feelings."

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: "Cut my already short trip even shorter. I used this airline twice now, and both times I was delayed."

Pros: "Plane was late. 2 years ago it was late and while there at the airport I heard Allgeant routine runs hours late or cancels. 3-4 hours, not an hour. Good thing I dont fly too often"

Pros: "On the way there and back the staff was friendly, the flight was smooth and and overall everything was just great. This was my first time flying with Allegiant and I will definitely do it again."

Pros: "I arrived safely Tommy Destination"
Cons: "It was so hot boarding and unloading. There was no air. Staff was curt and not very friendly as of assistance."

Cons: "Allegiant 468 7/27 4 1/2 hour delay on flight 569 on 7/27 and not a single person on the ground or plane even said sorry. Allegiant also failed to update the revised departure time. Allegiant posted an initial delay of 30 minunutes but then, when there was a further 2 hour delay due to a problem with the plane in Vegas Allegiant didn't update the time. (G4 568 was showing a two hour delay, with a 1010 arrival into STS but Allegiant never updated the departure time for 569 to reflect the additional two hour delay.) It wasn't until I called that it got updated and when I called I had to point out that the airplane hadn't even left Vegas and Allegiant was still showing an 8:50 departure time. It also took the reservation agent over 20 minutes to get any information about what was going on. Lastly each and every time I call I was on hold for a minimum of 20 minutes before being able to speak to a person"

Cons: "Nothing!!!"

Pros: "I did not like anything about it. The Departure flight was two hours late. They made us board then unboard the plane, change gates. Then the return flight was posponed from 9pm to 3am departure. They didn't have any refreshments in the gare area other than stale unhealthy pizza, no water. The seats on the plane were the most uncomfortable. I even purchased the extI did not like anything about it. The Departure flight was two hours late.

Pros: "We eventually got to Las Vegas."
Cons: "Everything. Spend an it make and book with someone else."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They overcharge for bags and their weight limit is only 40 pounds. They leave the desk and hour before take off which doesn't help people who are running late. They charge you to print out your boarding pass. They don't even send the boarding pass through email, you have to download the app. Overall horrible customer service. When call for customer service you can't even get a human representative. I missed my flight and they didn't even have another flight to to accommodate me to get to my destination and no one at the front desk to talk to."

Cons: "Muy mal aerolínea"

Cons: "everything was poor"

Pros: "STS ground crew waived goodbye. Love a small town airport"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When I spoke to the United person last week to confirm baggage and carry on requirements. He said I could take a carry on when I turned up to the gates I was charged another fee for my carry on bag. What is baffling is that when I arrived at Denver people were getting complementary check in baggage. I’m so dissatisfied with the booking and the amount it has now cost me ruining any savings I’d had for sanfrancisco"

Cons: "Delays in flights were a disappointment"

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."

Pros: "Repairs caused a long delay, they kept us informed but it was a hurry up and wait forever"

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Staff was nice!"
Cons: "I didn't like the luggage restrictions associated with our tickets."

Pros: "Curtial personnel"
Cons: "Late departures both ways."

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: "Tight seats, full flights"

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: "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: "Unreliable wifi."

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: "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: "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."

Cons: "I have flown with United several times and will be avoiding this airline in the future. After notification that our flight had been delayed by 3 hours, the customer service was awful. The United representatives at the gate told us they could not rebook us nor would they be able to assist us with locating a different connecting flight. We then contacted customer service by phone and were directed to connecting flights. However the connecting flights were at an airport two hours away. After being informed that we would not be able to fly out the next day from the Des Moines airport, we. Had no other choice but to rent a car to drive to the Omaha airport. We had to rent a car because they would not accommodate us by changing our return flights to match where we flying out of. This whole experience has been awful for a trip that has been booked for more than 6 months. I plan to continue to inform the public of this horrendous experience."

Pros: "Quick boarding"

Pros: "No delays, we were kept informed of status' of the process and we actually arrived slightly ahead of the advertised time. There were no weather or mechanical issues so the flight went off without a hitch."

Pros: "New plane, wifi, arrived 27 mins early"

Pros: "Cancelled."

Pros: "Perfect, but I did upgrade to United's business plus."

Pros: "I recoment it..."

Cons: "It’s Frontier so it’s not supposed to be amazing. Not having to pay for a drink of water would have been nice though.."

Pros: "Great flight attendant"
Cons: "Seats too tight knees bump seat ahead"

Pros: "Frontier was smooth and efficient, didn’t have any issues."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delays, gate changes, lack of notification, last minute changes."

Cons: "Frontier is an airlines that doesn't care about its customer. Period!"

Cons: "one hour late"

Cons: "Late again"

Cons: "I had to pay $50 for my bag"

Pros: "The staff was a well oiled machine! Very funny & accommodating. They were all very friendly & helpful to all of the passengers. Everything was clean & orderly."

Pros: "Early, friendly staff"
Cons: "No WiFi"

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: "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: "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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

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"

Cons: "Plane was too hot"

Pros: "Personnel were great"
Cons: "Luggage took over an hour"

Cons: "50 minutes late with no warning"

Cons: "40 minutes and still no bags"

Cons: "The same 2 screaming babies entire flights. Attendants allowed with no assistance."

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"

Pros: "Every part of the dsm airport experience is simple and fast."
Cons: "I wouldn't take frontier again. It's a class system that charges people for every minor convenience that should already be part of your flying experience. I'm fortunate enough to be able to afford all the stupid additional costs that I paid for in my ticket that, in actuality, made the total cost far more expensive than delta or United."

Cons: "Checking in website didn't work, so had to pay extra for seat assignment and luggage. I tried 24 hours before to check in select seats and pay for luggage but had to call land line. Service personnel was friendly but couldn't help. VERY FRUSTRATING"

Pros: "The crew was entertaning and polite"
Cons: "No free beverage or cary on lugage."

Pros: "The flight crew did a great job due to what they got thrown into."
Cons: "Didn't like waiting 5+ hours before our flight due to plane troubles. Had to set on the plane for almost an hour and a half while they waited to try and get it going. Then the meal voucher was finally printed off after most people had already eaten."

Pros: "Staff need to communicate. Misinformation and now luggage is missing after we were delayed in des Moines for hours."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Sort of cheap"
Cons: "Cheap at every level. Makes you feel unsafe. Are they cutting on cheap pilots too?"

Cons: "I did not know you all do not provide complimentary beverages and snacks. I did not know I had to purchase a seat to sit in for check in and only one carry-on was allowed."

Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Everything else."
