Cons: "Boarding would be so much easier if the ticketing agents,.gate agents or a person standing at the plane door would enforce the size of carry on bag rules, and take the bag from the passenger, before they board the plane. that would decrease the waiting time on the plane, significantly. Leave the flight attendants out of it, and make some one else, on the ground, "The bad guy". With all of the time standing around waiting to board, there would be plenty of time."

Cons: "Cannot complain about anything on this flight."

Flight attends spent all his time playing on his phone, I expect more for first Class 😡

Connecting flights with first class seats is not as enjoyable since the flight was short. Will look to take more straight flights so i can enjoy first class more!

Don’t give me a chair that can’t lean back. I got one in both legs of my flight. And I know I did not select those seats.

Pros: "The crew was amazing. One of the flight attendants Keddie deserves praise for bringing me snacks even after the main serving was over when I was sleeping."

Pros: "Highly attentive crew, extremely helpful, made a bad day bearable"

Cons: "It was ridiculously cold for 2 1/2 hours. When my seat mate asked for a blanket, the stewardess said she only had one more - then walked off. For drinks, they skipped several people. I had to catch her eye to ask for one and then ask her to get my kids a drink in front of me."
Pros: "Quick board, quick flight and everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Someone to rub my feet, but that’s wishful thinking."
Pros: "All the attention bestowed upon me"
Pros: "The food. And services."

Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Lots of movies to choose from."

Pros: "I am usually happy with Delta."
Cons: "Huge smelly person invading my space. Disgusted by his hot sweat on my leg. Used up 10,000 miles and paid too much (watched the fare go down several hundred dollars) and ended up with a middle seat. Not happy."

Cons: "Late bumby ride"
Pros: "Everyone did try to be helpful but it seems that no one at Delta really knew anything that was going on today"
Cons: "The fact that I missed yet another connection because of a Delta issue. The difference is that this time there was not another connection for me to go to and I was told I would be provided a hotel in Atlanta which was not the case. I had to transfer to a flight 2 hrs away from my home only to still be on the floor of Atl airport because they are unable to appropriately de-ice planes."
Pros: "Nothing including the captain who was making the boarding announcements at MCI who talked to me like I was stupid"
Cons: "My flight was delayed almost two hours which caused problems for me arriving late to business appointments in New York. My flight areas also late 45 minutes leaving New York. In both cases it was due to a late airline attendant this is increadably unprofessional."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That when ever I try Delta there is a dramatic event that is mishandled and causes my flight to be extremely delayed or canceled. Promised to never take delta. I booked KLM and didn't know delta would be involved. Horrible."
Pros: "Good uneven full flight"
Pros: "I had a great pilot on this flight. He always told us what was happening, why we had a wait on the tarmac in LGA, why he anticipated it might be a choppy flight, how to access in flight entertainment so we could be distracted. Gave us some trivia questions. Joked about Pokemon go, walked along the aisle talking to us. He was awesome!"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. But what else is new?"
Pros: "Flight was quick, crew efficient"
Cons: "Despite having this flight booked for over a month I was not issued a seat until gate check in and had to sit and wait till they figured out their "overbooked" situation.

Pros: "Trip was wonderful."
Cons: "My son and I had seats in different places and they asked him to move forward several rows because of weight and the seat beside him was empty so I asked if I could sit next to him and they said no without giving any explanation.

Cons: "Everyone was really good"
Cons: "Gate agent told me it wasn't his job to quickly verify if my luggage had made it on the plane after my 10 minute sprint in PHX. I know at my job, I don't get the luxury of telling customers "it's not my job", especially when the customer has had a bad experience with us."
Pros: "Taking the exit door makes a difference in having enough leg room. Everyone was nice an helpful."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that, I was ask to help a non English person, whom spoke French find their way to the departure area from check in. I could not understand their broken English. That I feel is the job of the person or staff trying to check them in."

Why couldn’t United have delayed the connecting flight a few minutes knowing we were sitting in another of their planes just a few feet away?"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed so long that I had to reschedule for another day. This is after watching planes to other possible locations take off before United would switch peoples tickets. This was after a 4 hour layover completely disappeared. They should have been able to reroute planes or something after the first 2 hours of delays since it was for a weather phenomena that gives tons of warning (at least 24 hours)."

Pros: "Nice flight attendant"

By the time the flight was allowed to take off, the dinner onb the flight had sat too long and they were not allowed to serve it.

Pros: "The other amazing people on my 2 scrappy flights who I got to know because we suffered through delays, deplaning, regarding and mean, crabby insulting flight attendants and gate crew.

Cons: "All flights where extremely late to places that never have delays Seats are like a football stadium seat, very uncomfortable and non adjustable. They are fixed seats that are made of hard plastic with a small lining of pleather. Staff was ok but this flight offers nothing but stuff you have to pay for so interactions are minimum. Baggage cost is 30 dollars."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "There were extra fees for carry on and checked bags, which was not revealed until we printed our boarding passes. In addition, we had to pay to reserve seats. On top of that, I have never sat in such uncomfortable seats. They charged $2.99 for a can of soda on the flight. Finally, they lost our bag, after our flight took an hour longer than it was supposed to."
Cons: "5 hours late, no updates sent via text or email, $15 dinner boucher useless and given after restaurants closed. I will never fly frontier airlines again!"
Cons: "The flight was first cancelled, then I had to wait two days for the next available flight out. Also was charged for my carry on bag. This airline does not offer any complimentary drinks. I will not book this company again, you think your saving a little and end up spending More at the end."
Pros: "Nice crew. Plane clean."
Cons: "On this long flight from Atlanta to San Francisco, a reclining seat would have been nice."
Pros: "The initial price I paid. Which was very reasonable for a non-stop flight."
Cons: "Paying for a checked bag. Paying for a seat so I could be assured a decent seat. My decent price soon became what I would pay on any major airline. So why would I fly Frontier?"
Pros: "Little."
Cons: "Worst flight of my entire life."
Cons: "Couldn't move the seat back at all. Couldn't sleep."
Pros: "Boarding. Charging for baggage limits what passengers can carry making boarding and sitting quicker"
Cons: "oK with me to buy my own snack and pop. Can see that it may catch people by surprise as passengers not notified earlier that except for water have to purchase own snack."
Cons: "Flight was significantly delayed. Advertised as low cost, which it was, but that is because they make you pay for everything except water. Seats do not recline either...bad for red-eye."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over 4 hours due to operational issues (not weather or maintenance). The gate representative didn't keep us informed of the issues and when he did, he was usually wrong. There is a surcharge for everything from carry-on fees to beverages on the plane. The plane itself was uncomfortable with uncushioned seats. Let's just say that if I had to choose between a Frontier flight and a Delta flight that was $400 more, I will choose the Delta. Same goes with any competitor. I will never fly Frontier again."
Pros: "There was a 4 hour delay on both flights. What a HORRIBLE airline. They issued me a 100.00 voucher for a future trip, which I will NEVER use. I will not fly fron tier ever again."
Cons: "Everything. You have to pay for all luggage, drinks, everything. In the end, it is Not the cheapest because they charge for toilet paper. Oh get this, you cannot recline. That cost extra. Never fly FRONTIER."
Cons: "Operational failure by Frontier made the flight late and chaotic."
Pros: "I like the convince of the flight."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that we started charging 30 for a carry on. I get it. You get the ticket for cheap and upcharge but charging for the carry on is a way to lose business. I might as well fly spirt at least I know up front that I have to pay for something that's already with me. Very frustrating on a return flight."
Cons: "It's very late to get a hotel and they didn't arrange anything for us. We get a credit for future flights and hotel reimbursement. But I'd rather not fly Frontier again!"
Pros: "Low price was great. It had everything I needed which was a flight to where I wanted to go. It didn't have any additional amenities but the lower price was worth it."
Cons: "You get what you pay for. No entertainment. No complimentary drinks or snacks. A fee for a carry on bag. All of these however are unnecessary so it was fine."
Pros: "Did have good leg room in exit row."
Cons: "Thought we got such a good deal on flight, but had to pay extra for carry-on and even to choose a seat. The seats did not recline, but maybe that was because we were in exit row. Boarded an hour late to clean up from last fight because of (per their announcement) vomit."
Cons: "Frontier charges for seat assignments and even carry-on bags. It's the #1 airline for indignities and nickel and diming its passengers."
Pros: "The crew and neatness"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "I do not normally complain, but my two flights this weekend were more than an hour late each, coupled with horrible cramped seating, unfriendly flight crew, tons of extra charges, and a dirty plane. I will be trying to avoid frontier flights on the future."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "Flight had uncomfortable Seats was delayed 1.5 hours and the baggage took more than 30 mins to come out"
Cons: "We were stuck on the runway for over an hour after we landed and getting our luggage was a DISASTER. They changed the location of our baggage claim carousel with minimal notice, only to change it back to the original carousel with NO NOTICE. It took over an hour again for our luggage to come out and it trickled in so slowly, that I ended up getting my bag a full two and a half hours after we landed. Awful experience."
Cons: "A word of caution to anyone flying Frontier airlines. Carry on bags cost $40 each way. Even checked baggage is cheaper at $35. Don't forget to add the extra $70-80 when you see the tickets slightly cheaper online. Plus, it will cost more to select seats to sit together and even the snacks/drinks cost money. I'm shocked I didn't have to pay extra for a pilot."
Cons: "I was seated between an overweight man and a very tall man, both of whom felt as though their sizes allowed them to infringe upon my space. There were plenty of open seats on the flight and yet no effort was made to alleviate this clear problem."
Pros: "The time of the flights, and the quick security at the terminal."
Cons: "Hidden fees for everything. You book your flight for one price. (mine was about 100$ less than other airlines at time of booking) -Then they have you pick your seat (charge) -Then if you want to check a bag (charge) -Then if you want to BRING A CARRY ON (CHARGE) It ended up being way MORE than the other flights I could have just booked on other airlines. (I booked at $220.00 and by the end of my trip spent $373.00 with Frontier) Also, the returning flight was delayed 45 minutes but I received no notifications."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats hard plastic and inhumanly closed together. Tray tables smaller than a car's sunvisor. I think Frontier should be called the Middle Passage airlines for how they pack us in. They make you pay for luggage, improved seat size, location, food and then ask you to tip your cranky flight attendant whom they seem to screen and select the most misanthropic applicants they can find. And then they try to sell you their credit card with a $69 annual fee. I watched and there where no takers."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and I arrived safely. Grateful for these aspects of my trip."
Cons: "Employees were rude. Inaccurate information about flight times provided before and during the flight. The hidden fees were ridiculous, such as $1.99 for seltzer water. Note that you cannot pay in cash for anything. Not so unusual, but a pain for since my debit card was lost. Because flight times were inaccurate, I had no time to buy food during my layover and wasn't able to purchase food on the flight. Overall, I would NOT choose to fly Frontier Airlines again unless absolutely necessary."
Pros: "Your flight's delay was unchanged; I likes its consistency."
Cons: "I did not like paying $5 more for my checked bag. Although I did log in to see if I could check in more than 24 hours before the flight nothing suggested that I should pay for my bag though I could not do seat assignment at that time. I did not like that I paid $5 for set assignments inferior to what my friends got by taking their chances. Although I understand your motives, not showing what the free alternative is seems a bit smarmy. The one hour delay on the tarmac before we could get to a departure gate was not directly your fault, but it was annoying."
Pros: "The low price of the fare"
Cons: "1. All the added charges even for a refreshment 2. The obnoxiously loud noises coming from the plane mechanics 3. A group of 5 that were drunk, belligerent, loud, and inappropriate 4. Lack of cleanliness (old tissues & trash stuffed in the seat pocket, trash on the floor, looked like throw up in our aisle-our entire aisle asked to move seats) 5. Stewardess speakerphone so loud It was painful"
Cons: "Boarding was bad, after a delay it seem as if we were rushed onto the plane to make up time."
Cons: "45 bucks for ckecked bags and you have to pay for your carry on"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "These flights are horrible- hard cramped seats, no services, not even a cup of coffee unless you pay extra. $40 to bring a carry on bag on the plane. Cost more than any other flight in the long run."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline and website is misleading when it comes to purchasing seats. I was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like how we were notified last minute about our flight being delayed for THREE hours. There was no voucher offered as well. Completely terrible."
Pros: "When we got to the airport the kiosk was not working, and no one was at the counter. Checked in online, they charged us $45 per carry on (didn't read the small print, because it's so small, and no other airline I've been on charges for carry ons). To check a bag was cheaper, $35 but no one was at the counter. Also, they charged us $20 per seat when we checked in, did not give us the option of a no-charge seat online. (even though we did have tickets) So, I paid an additional $130 for the 2 tickets total. Shabby airline."
Cons: "Having to pay for a carry on. Having to pay for water on the plane!! That's insane! The fact that it's 2016 and there's no entertainment or free wifi. Ridiculous. I fly frontier out of desperation but never as a choice."
Cons: "My plans changed and I was not able to leave on the original date booked. My great $58 fare was completely lost. To change the ticket, a $99 change fee had to be paid along with a $25 fee assessed because the booking went through a 3rd party. I ended up buying a brand new ticket on a different airline."
