Flight was cancelled on our way back home from Gudalajara, was speaking to a representative for almost 2 hours to get me on the next flight the flight representative forgot to put me on hold and told everyone how rude i was, i was not rude i was just trying to get home. The representative couldn’t help me so i asked to be transferred to a manager, after 2 hours i was transferred and the manager hung the phone up. Long story short i called back spoke to another manager Yana and she was the rudest lady ever! She basically told me for waiting to long i will have to be placed on a flight 2 days after my cancellation flight. I started to cry because i needed to be home and she basically did not care so i took the date. Never again and i will warn everyone about this airline and their customer service!

Service was awful. Delayed for more than 8hrs without an explanation of what type of maintenance issues were happening. Never given a straight answer as to what was happening. Food vouchers were only offered after the airport restaurants had closed. Once the plane was finished the crew had timed out and we could not leave till the following afternoon. Ended up being put up in a hotel for the night and lost an entire day of our weekend get away. Poor contingency planning on frontiers part. There was no reason

if you have a hard engagement that you have to make, i hate to say it, but use a bigger airline. These guys are not dependable nyc -> miami. Have had 2 flights cancelled and delayed over 6 hours in the last 6 months. Only one scheduled flight everyday. If you can risk it, fine, but otherwise not worth it.

enough space to move around

I dislike that once I got to the airport in Cleveland before boarding schools go to Orlando they charge me $45 for a suitcase that if I would have painted with my ticket it would have been $25 and that's what it told me I had to pay at the airport if I wasn't going to pay it with my ticket it was only $25 not $45 so they charge me $45 and then when I went to board the plane to go in they tried to charge me $45 for a backpack that fits under the seat and wasn't a carry on then they charge like $3 for a can of soda I don't think I'll ever recommend Frontier to anyone or I would never travel again with them that is ridiculous being a disabled person and being taken advantage of is unacceptable

The dirt cheap, I can't believe an airline can operate at this low an airfare and still turn a profit-ticket prices

The hidden checked-baggage fees that were almost half the cost of the actual ticket for one bag. The non reclining seats. The lack of legroom. The feeling of cattle being herded into a slaughterhouse. The lack of friendliness with the RDU and MCO gate/ticket counter agents. The cost of having to pay $12 to ensure I sit beside my 5 year old son on the flight. Besides a free seat belt, having to pay for everything else under the sun. Surprised AC was free. Not even an in-flight magazine or barf bag. Which is exactly what I feel like doing after giving you my money......

Improper handling of situation. There was flight scheduled later, but CS agent kept jerking us around. By the time I reached the United counter, the next flight was full. My total flight time was 36 hours. I still can’t believe that the pilot was missing. Worse yet, the agent at the gate could have made things much easier instead of telling everyone that a pilot was on his way to the airport.

I liked that we were given cookies with our drinks that was a nice touch. I also enjoyed that it was a very quick flight from Dallas to Cincinnati. Shout out to the crew members, they work really hard to help us feel comfortable.

The sound of the turbo engine in the beginning made my head feel really dizzy, but the buzzing went away after a while. Other than that, I think that the tiny planes should still have some sort of entertainment, even if it's just a single movie playing for all to watch.
