  • The Knoxville Airport (TYS) consists of one terminal with an upper and lower level. Its upper level houses the airlines' ticket counters, gates, and restaurants. In the lower level, there are car rental agencies, baggage claim, and an information booth. Escalators and elevators make it easy to go from one level to another.
  • Depending on the airline, you could fly from Knoxville to one of three airports: New York's John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK), New York's LaGuardia Airport (LGA), or the Newark International Airport (EWR) in the nearby state of New Jersey. Check availability and choose the airport that suits you best.
  • John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) is the largest airport in NYC. It is about 50min from Manhattan, 34min from Brooklyn, and 29min from Queens. LaGuardia Airport (LGA) is the next largest airport. It is in the Queens borough and just 31min from Manhattan and 31min from Brooklyn. Newark International Airport (EWR) is the smallest.
  • If you have lots of luggage, you can rent a luggage cart at any of these airports to help you carry your suitcases. At the Knoxville Airport, they are on the lower level. At the JFK Airport (JFK), they are near the ticket gates before you head to security. If you're flying out of LaGuardia (LGA), they are spread out around the terminals, so you'll have to look for one. And, at the Newark Airport (EWR), they can be found curbside and/or by baggage claim.
  • Most flights from the Knoxville Airport (TYS) to New York City are nonstop. However, there are a few routes that involve a change of planes. If this is the case, the layover would be in Atlanta, Myrtle Beach, Detroit, or Charlotte.

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I missed check in (not flight) by 5 minutes. Delta did nothing. I called Aeromexico. After 30 minutes on hold they told me there was nothing they could do. Called Kayak, you guys said you couldn’t do anything. Finally I got some 3rd party phone number I was given by Kayak. I called the number and it was not in service. In all my years using this app this was the biggest disappointment ever!!!!"

Cons: "It takes time and worries to find the air train and Aeroflot registration."
Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "baggage rules, check in with baggage, change fee for flight when it was not customers issue that caused the 5 min delay! Unable to reach reservation desk on line or via phone (neither was the gate agent)"

Pros: "Entertainment, food having only two seats on our side of aisle."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "We did eventually get there"
Cons: "What should have been a 90 minute flight took over 4 hours! Between mechanical failure, overbooking and waiting for gates and sky bridges we missed our connection. Then when they rebooked our connection on a British Airways flight, BA couldn't pull up the tickets and we wasted yet another hour while Virgin Atlantic and Delta both passed the buck as to who was responsible for correcting it so we could get on our rebooked flight, which we BARELY did with only 2 minutes to spare!"
Pros: "The organization and speediness shown during boarding the aircraft and the perfect timing on departure"
Cons: "The tv screen corresponding to my seat 9A was not working so could not see any movies nor information during the whole flight SDQ to JFK. The condition was reported twice to the flight attendance but was not able to correct it even after resetting the TV settings twice"
Cons: "I wouldn't rate this flight on a five-star grid--I give it 0.0 stars. Delta's economy seats are so tiny that even a small person like myself finds it agonizing to ride in them for a moderate-length flight. We need aggressive regulation of our airlines to prevent the unconscionable and humiliating way they treat economy passengers. It's not safe, healthy or humane to ask human beings to sit for hours in tiny spaces with very little air (on top of everything else, the plane was mercilessly hot the whole time). Next time I will choose a European carrier--even the discount Euro carriers are better than any US airline."
Pros: "They had good entertainment for free. There were movies, tv shows, and games."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for 5 hours and the ride was longer than expected."
Pros: "We upgraded our seats to Delta Comfort, at a cost of round $90 per flight. It was well worth it!"
Pros: "Comfortable, courtesy, good service."
Cons: "Please, there is never a vegetarian option. Many people do not want to eat meat. Very easy to offer a sandwich with vegetables or a little bowl of rice and beans..."
Pros: "Quick, clean"
Cons: "I was in the back seat"
Pros: "Painless"
Cons: "Price of food"
Pros: "The prior flight arrived late and then due to what appeared to be some mechanical issue, the plane was towed into the gate at about the time we were due to board. I mention this only because this was the only glitch during the rest of the flight. Loved the wide variety of entertainment available inflight, the AC outlets on EVERY row, and though I didn't need it this time, the availability of Wi-Fi Internet is appreciated. And though we left 40 minutes late, we made up part of the time and arrived only 20 min later than scheduled. Bravo Delta! I'll have to check out your version of Mileage Plus."
Cons: "I couldn't understand the gate agent's announcements due to language issue but most of all competing announcements from the gate behind me. One of the flight attendents was more bossy I felt than necessary. She told me not to put my backpack in the overhead bin, even though there was enough space and the back 3rd of the aircraft was half empty (I was in the last loading zone so there weren't many more people after me)."
Cons: "I reserved and paid for Delta comfort and ended up flying AeroMexico and Virgin Atlantic who could care less so I didn't sit comfortably, no wifi and for Virgin Atlantic I had to pay extra to get more legroom! NOT a satisfying experience."
Pros: "The comfort of first class reclining seats."
Cons: "The vegetarian meals consisted of cold grilled vegetables for an appetizer, lunch was underwhelming. So much so I dont remember it The snack was two salads. Regular snacks were Cuban sandwiches or roast beef sandwich. Even the stewards said Inshould complain to Delta. Pretty sad for what the cost of a first class ticket."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "A tv on plane"
Cons: "No personal entertainment system. Has to use my phone."
Cons: "Seats are narrow and no leg room"
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable. We were allowed to deplane down a staircase off the back of the plane. Very cool."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "CLT to LGA Airbus expérience was as pleasant as ever. The flight attendant on the regional EMB from LGA to YUL was exceptional."
Pros: "Everything. The entertainment was ok. I think a movie would be better than the shows"
Cons: "if I would’ve been in first :)"
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "The seats could be bigger."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and snack / drinks service"
Cons: "Delayed flight departure and bumpy landing"
Pros: "Plane too cold hard to sleep, no blankets or pillows"

Pros: "Free tv to distract me from my state of misery"
Cons: "Too warm on flight. Was so nauseated the whole time."

Cons: "I paid extra for a better seat, but it still felt cramped. The tray was crooked and I had no priority boarding."
Pros: "Easy check in and Boarding"
Pros: "Legroom"
Cons: "Snacks, non usable Wi-Fi"
Pros: "Stairs cause me tremendous pain due to a 4 year misdiagnosed ruptured SI joint. Usually, we have no way of knowing that our flight will end with a downstairs walk rather than a ramp. I emailed American Airlines last week but hadn’t gotten a response yet so when they announced that we would exit by stairs, I was almost in tears as I gathered my belongings. To my surprise, American Airlines had a ramp for us to use. I don’t know it it was a coincidence or if they responded that quickly knowing I was on the plane through todays’s technology. I will be a fan and a customer forever."
Cons: "On time, loaded quickly,ramp access to exit the plane."
Cons: "X"
Pros: "Good flight attendants"
Pros: "Pleasant and helpful staff"
Pros: "On-board staff were professional and kept everything running smoothly and with great communication from the pilot."
Cons: "Claiming baggage at LaGuardia was an hours-long process for everyone on the flight leading to raised tension and lots of tired folks on what was already a late (and delayed flight)."
Pros: "Immigration in Dallas was amazing, so quick and no fuss."
Cons: "If you are running late you might struggle to get from terminal to terminal"
Pros: "We had to wait in the airplane upon arrival in La Guardia NY because wheelchair was not ready."
Pros: "All service once on board was lovely"
Cons: "Surprised by a snarky employee at gate check for my connecting flight home today. I fly with AA nearly every week for work. They grabbed my bag from me and insisted it be checked. I said I didn’t want to pay for checking and that it contained fragile items. It was a little over-stuffed for the scale. When I went to open it and remove some bulky items to put in my purse, they snatched my suitcase away and refused to let me touch my bag. I find this to be completely unacceptable. They had the gall to suggest I go to an airport store, buy a “suitable suitcase,” and take a later flight home. They made a scene and called a supervisor who kindly and promptly let me in my suitcase. The employee then spoke negatively about me loudly to nearby colleagues and refused to make eye contact. After the supervisor let me in my bag, I got on the plane with my suitcase. At one point, this employee made me feel like I was going to be kicked off of my flight; this was so unnecessary and extremely unprofessional. AA - your employees are better than this."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew."
Pros: "Great flight. Nice airplanes and friendly hostesses."
Pros: "On time take off"
Pros: "Nothing in particular. They got me there."
Cons: "The usual stuff. Uncomfortable. Worse than riding a bus."
Pros: "Everything was on time and great."
Cons: "Ever thing was fine."
Pros: "Just being able get home."
Cons: "After madly rushing to get to the gate, we found out 5 minutes before scheduled boarding time that there would be a 15 minute delay in boarding. After that, we were told there would be another 30 minute delay. Once we were on board and the cabin doors were closed we were told there would be another 55 minute delay. Also, LGA is such a mess these days due to construction and would have been nice to get an email notification beforehand about it. We barely made our outgoing flight!"
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Both flights, to and from around had to go search for my baggage and on the return flight I even had to go to a different terminal. The service is unacceptable. I will never fly with AA again."
Cons: "Older plane"
Pros: "A short flight that was even shorter because we arrived early. Luggage arrived promptly at Baggage Claim, too. American has flights between Chicago and New York practically every hour, which is very convenient. They might as well have a shuttle. Gate staff and flight attendants friendly and helpful. Love the upgraded individual consoles for the entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Also quick and painless flight"
Cons: "Flight attendants where kind of rude."
Cons: "I paid extra money to sit in the front of the plane due to traveling with my dog... when I looked at my boarding pass I realized I was sitting in the last row of the plane ... the cabin was booked and they could not move my seat! Really upsetting and frustrating!"
Pros: "On time departure/early arrival"
Cons: "Boarding g process a bit chaotic"
Cons: "No gluten free snacks"
Cons: "Itthe ground staff (red coat agents) at MIA extremely unhelpful and arrogant. I am visually impaired, asked for assistance to check luggage, asked for assistance and was simply tol to go to end of the line at a counter that was at least fifty yards away. Upon my. O planning of the lack of service as simply to go talk to the manager."
Cons: "Baggage claim took extremely long time. It took a while before the baggage crew even became aware of situation."
Pros: "The gate crew in Roanoke were professional and helpful. The next day's flight was on time and uneventful."
Cons: "The flight attendant was unfriendly at boarding. He did not say or play any pre-flight safety announcements. We were told the flight might have to refuel in Richmond due to major weather delays in LGA. When we were landing they said they expected a refuel and a quick turnaround in Richmond. On the plane after landing, I learned via my phone's internet the flight was cancelled. They never announced it on the plane. At the final moment before we disembarked, the crew told us to be sure to take our belongings. When we landed, Flightaware showed delays of 45 minutes at LGA. AA never took responsibility for the problem though the gate crew mentioned they canceled the flight because the crew was going to be over their maximum hours. AA really couldn't plan to allow for up to an hour delay? I feel disrespected and even deceived. Although it was clear that flight attendant really needed to get off that plane. At the gate, we were told there were no available flights to NYC and were stranded overnight in Richmond. AA did offer a hotel pretending it was a courtesy since they claimed the problem was weather related and not theirs. We chose to stay with relatives and were told AA could only provide transportation from the airport which we did not need. We often have problems and cancellations on this route from when it was branded a US Air route to the present, but this was egregious."
Cons: "Refer to above. Both flights were horrible."
Pros: "Volare con American"
Cons: "No snacks offered! No alcohol drinks offered!"
Cons: "Everyone excellent"
Pros: "boarding was in time, and comfort."
Cons: "comfort was very good"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No refreshments"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delays, the crew members lied a lot about our delayed flight and they were extremely rude."
Pros: "Timeliness"
Pros: "Flight was smooth, boarding was smooth, made good time in the air despite slight delay"
Cons: "We sat on the plane at the gate and then on the tarmac for quite awhile after some delays, but the air conditioning wasn't working. It was incredibly hot, uncomfortable, and I felt sick due to the temperature in the cabin It's just unacceptable to have to sit there in that condition!"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful Everything was on time"
Cons: "Very bumpy ride (not anyone's fault) Very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Great crew. Everything was on time. Loved it"
Cons: "Covid travel. Had us board an hour before take off and the back half of the plane was 100% full. Every seat including middle seats. 15 min before take off they allowed passengers to take empty seats and spread out."
Cons: "Bag fees are a little high"
Cons: "We had a 40-minute mechanical delay."
Pros: "Good crew"
Pros: "I paid extra for the added leg room!"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early, deplaned quickly because no one had bag"
Cons: "Reclinable seats"
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "Almost two hours late."
Pros: "There was nothing outstanding really"
Cons: "It’s a low cost airline, so expectations are very low. Plane was very dirty because it just keeps on hopping back and forth without any cleaning service it seems"
Pros: "the crew was very welcoming. and the boarding process was fast."
Cons: "the seats are not comfortable. however I can understand because of the price."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"
Cons: "Good flight."
Pros: "The plane didnt crash :) Friendly attendants."
Cons: "NO WIFI. Flights are delayed often, what looked like a brand spanking new plane had the most uncomfortable seats ever, felt like sitting on wood in the exit row. You get what you pay for though."
Cons: "Fight was changed then late"
Pros: "Our trip to Knoxville was great- no complaints. A/c cool— flight on time."
Cons: "Trip back to FLL air was not working well. Plane dirty as well."
Pros: "The plane was very clean and well lit. The crew was excellent. Very friendly and nice."
Cons: "The seats are pretty uncomfortable. They are so close together and there is no room to store anything. The tray tables are a joke, you can't even fit an iPad on them. The bag check process was trouble at both legs. They have lower weight limits than the major carriers and that really should be highlighted better when you book with Allegiant. Also, bag checkin for the flight I was on started at 7:45am. There were only 2 people at the checkin counter and one of them was busy doing something and ignoring the customers. So that was a little annoying."
Cons: "I bought a flight that I had to end up cancelling - when I called to cancel - within the 24 hour period, they would not let me cancel despite text on my confirmation saying that there would be a free cancellation within the 24 hours. Extremely annoyed that there was a blatant miscommunication. I did not end up going on the flight but was unable to get a refund which seems ridiculous given that there was text on the website explicitly saying this was their policy."
Pros: "Great flight. Great staff."
Pros: "Would highly recommend the connection and the Allegiant jet was a fairly new Airbus, very comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 9 hrs. We were going to NYC for 2 days. We missed an entire day--- cut our trip in half."
Pros: "Flight crew were very polite and we received free soda. Free booze however would have been more appropriate after spending my entire New Year’s Day in an airport."
Cons: "Reviewed 9 hours because a crew member didn’t show. Was originally told 6 hours delay only 20 minutes before the flight was due to leave. Received two $8 meal vouchers and rude and slow service from the entire ground crew."
Cons: "parking my car 2 weeks in Asheville Long term was $96. I should have gone to Charlotte, parked at my friend's house and paid AA the same rate for a nicer seat and cabin leg room. a la carte pricing ran my bill up even with NO checked luggage. Asheville doesn't have a shuttle service for the long-term parking."
Pros: "friendly helpful staff. on time. safe."
Cons: "my suitcase went to the WRONG destination. very inconvenient and expensive. also plane interior was pretty shabby which made me wonder about the engines, mechanical etc."
Pros: "New plane!"
Cons: "Boarded too early!"
Pros: "The staff is always helpful and flights are comfortable."
Pros: "Boarding at the new Austin South terminal was a breeze!"
Cons: "It's ridiculous to make passengers keep their personal items on the floor when most of the overhead lockers are empty. Ridiculous and dangerous."
Pros: "Love the ticket price, but charging $44 for a carry-on? C'mon man! Added charges that were worth it? Priority boarding: $15, Exit row seating: $25 Also be advised that all food & drink is for purchase and must be purchased with debit or credit card - absolutely no cash."
Pros: "Love this flight from Belleville to Punta Gorda. On time and great crew."
Cons: "Nothing!!"
Cons: "Allegiant needs to put more than just school bus seats in their aircraft."
Pros: "2 hours and one flight. Done!"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing!!!"
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: "The speed"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Good for Domestic travels"
Pros: "That fact that they did not suply even one free bottle or cup of water is awful. I was very thirsty but did not get a drink because they chaged $2.00 for one bottle of water, and the is just plain wrong."
Pros: "No complaints about the trip to Newqrk. Everyone was very helpful and patient since I am an unexperienced flyer."
Cons: "I didn't like thinking I was paying one price then paying another or buying insurance that would have been useless since it doesn't cover anythIntg."
Pros: "We eventually got to Las Vegas."
Cons: "Everything. Spend an it make and book with someone else."
Pros: "It was so fun to have a flight attendant that had a great sense of humor. She kept us in stitches throughout the flight."
Cons: "My flight to Vegas was cancelled the day of the trip, so the trip back did not exist for me. How does an airline do business this way? I had hotel booked and lost out on money."
Cons: "Significant Delay"
Pros: "Evertything was on schedule ."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the staff were courteous."
Pros: "On time. Courteous stsgg. Great price."
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Pros: "Airline was great. Told us right away they were only going to do one drink service so we could order two. Left on time and had no issues. Would definitely fly with them again. Even though you have to pay to check a bag, it's still a better deal than any other airline out there. People need to stop complaining about the extra fees, do you want cheap or not."
Cons: "Nothing. Was exactly what I expected for a $35.00 flight."
Pros: "Bring your own snacks & entertainment you will enjoy your flight. Make sure you eat before your flight. Download the Allegiant Air app to your cell phone you will have a Mobile Boarding pass no need to print use your phone."
Pros: "The flight left on time. Friendly crew"
Cons: "I don't like that they charge for carry on bags and they don't have a toll free number"
Pros: "everything was organized, friendly and right on time"
Cons: "seats are an in thick. also, too much talking!, why do you need to tell people abc are on the left, def rt three times? they re marked and a few tines not to queue by the bathroom? and in and on... after the safety fdrill, pipe down, its annoying!"
Pros: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "The wifi wasn't working"
Pros: "Everything fine"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Delayed flights flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "I had a very large man in the middle seat next to me. I was in the window seat. He leaked over into my seat which made it very uncomfortable especially when he fell asleep. I know the airlines can't do anything about this but he should pay for a larger seat."
Pros: "Once we got going, everything was great."
Cons: "2 hour delay on the plane due to mechanical issues."
Pros: "We landed in NYC -- although it was first announced as Dulles."
Cons: "This flight was on Canadian Air under the auspices of United. I was not allowed into the United Club lounge despite the fact that I had business class ticket. I was informed that a business class ticket isn't sufficient for using the lounge when flying domestic. It is only good when flying international. They call that customer service. I generally avoid domestic airlines because of the customer service. The flight attendants were not happy to serve you. It's a small flight but they didn't even offer a snack -- you had to ask for it. And then they brought over a small basket with nuts, chips, candy bars, and a muffin. I took a muffin and it stuck to the roof of my mouth -- very poor quality. When I asked for a snack the flight attendant replied cocktail or soft drink never saying whether or not a snack was available.. She said this a couple of times before I could repeat that I wanted a snack to which she replied you want something to drink with that. I've been on many short flights in Asia and they will deliver a full meal and you don't have to ask for it. There was no entertainment but United did send an email explaining how I could purchase entertainment to play on my own device."
Cons: "We were forced to use another airline and we landed in NYC about 5 hours later."
Cons: "Non existent"
Cons: "Very delayed"
Pros: "Nothing. I didn't take the flight."
Cons: "They didn't get me to New York. Our original aircraft was stolen to use for another flight. So we needed to wait for another plane that wasn't due until 90 minutes after our scheduled departure. This second plane had maintainence issues. After 4 hours waiting I got on a Delta flight."
Cons: "The flight was slightly delayed on departure and arrival."
Cons: "Old plane----moldy and smelly."
Pros: "flight was fast"
Cons: "No media in-seat is frustrating."

Pros: "Seat was ok in stiffness and padding"
Cons: "Don't like sitting with my knees propped on the seat in front of me when I'm only 6' tall. feel like you could give a touch of extra legroom for times like when you want something out of your bag crammed below the seat and you have to jar your neck sideways to reach it and try not to be in your neighbors lap while doing it."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Good options are terrible"
Pros: "Excellent and content flight."

Cons: "My seat didn't recline"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Pretzels is not enough I pay a lot to travel"
Cons: "There was no gate agent until about 6 minutes before the flight was scheduled to take off and when got there they were rude to customers and dismissive."
Pros: "The comfy seats"
Cons: "The fact that I had to pay to watch tv. Maybe people should have to pay for movies, but not for watching tv. Flights and till we takeoff can take a while. It would be nice to have some free entertainment. The plane was very hot when we were boarding."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and lots of leg room. I was not crowded at all. It was so nice to not feel cramped and to have plenty of room around me. It was one of the most comfortable flights I have experienced in years!"
Pros: "United spokesperson was able to get me on another flight out of O'hare. She was awesome."
Cons: "Nobody at the gate was helpful. They just kept saying check the board."
Cons: "The delays"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Delays"
Cons: "I spent 4 hours waiting for a connecting flight the scheduled wait was 45 min"
Cons: "Everything! Even worse than my previous flight. Delays were inexcusable, staff ridiculously unfriendly and just bad attitudes all round. Very unpleasant experience, won't be using this airline ever again."
Pros: "The crew was competent"
Cons: "Bad"
Pros: "Easy process with no delays"
Cons: "My flight from NY to Houston was delayed, then my flight from Houston to Austin was delayed, then was cancelled without any communication, leaving everyone on the flight stranded at the airport at 1.30am when we were supposed to leave at 8pm."
Cons: "There was confusion on where to go check luggage and what duty free items could be carried on board."
Cons: "Old plane. An almost two hour delay taking off once we had boarded the plane. Terrible in flight entertainment options. 30 minutes straight of turbulence just before and while landing."
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "The flight was short so no entertainment was needed. After the nightmarish flight I had just endured it felt like first class accommodations."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for several hours before finally being cancelled. The airport closed all the food places by 9pm so there was nowhere to eat."
Pros: "Frontier did not issue our tickets to us and then the power went out in Denver so we could not get on our flight and then they did not rebook us."
Cons: "Terrible customer service on the phone and in person. None of the kiosks worked, the app does not work. People behind desks at the check in were not helpful or pleasant."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by traffic control in NYC. Instead of just informing passengers why the flight was delayed, they just ignored the passengers and made people queue"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable flight. Ridiculous that the charge $50 for carry on, even if you carry it on !!! And then charge for food on flight. Delayed for an hour and a half. Never again"
Pros: "My seat in 3F that I paid $50"
Cons: "Purchased on Kayak ticket for $122 round trip to find out when I check in to my flight that I needed to pay for a seat and $40 for carry on. I should have stayed with delta ! This should have disclosed to me."
Pros: "on this leg of the flight, after changing planes, there was one little flight attendant who actually engaged guests and smiled a genuine smile."
Pros: "Nice new plane."
Pros: "Great crew, good announcements, quick retrieval of checked bag, smooth operation"
Cons: "Overpriced and mediocre food choices. Tight seats and little legroom. They charge for everything!"
Cons: "I was a little disappointed with the food options."
Pros: "Clean planes"
Cons: "I wish that I'd seen the review regarding carry on baggage fees. Given that I had to pay for my baggage each way and to reserve a seat (to avoid being in a middle seat), I'm not sure that Frontier ended up being the most economical choice. When you consider that Frontier's seats don't recline and the only complimentary refreshment offered on a even a four hour flight is water, I would've preferred to pay a few more bucks with a more conventional airline."
Cons: "So uncomfortable Zero services Charged for even the smallest amenity"
Pros: "Price was good, flight crew were very friendly and professional"
Cons: "Seats didn't recline."
Cons: "This isn't my first time flying Frontier, the flight itself is reasonably priced but after paying for luggage and seats it becomes comparable to other airlines. My dislike comes from the flight being delayed in Denver to NYC, the gate was changed twice and the updates for the new departure came 40 minutes after the flight was supposed to leave. The flight didn't have wifi which is unfortunate and the flight attendants were ok; they did try to help when my 18 month old son was screaming endlessly because he was exhausted after being in the airport since 9:30am for a flight for an a 11:08am that was supposed to land in NY by 5pm and didn't land until 7:30pm."
Cons: "wished I knew about the fees for both checked and carry-on luggage"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "STAFF WERE RUDE. DRINK WERE 3 DOLLARS. SEATS WERE TERRIBLE , NO SPACE , NO LEG ROOM , DIRTY PLANE , DIRTY TRAYS , UNCOMFORTABLE , TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE . NO TV , EVEN . PAID 1200 DOLLARS FOR TWO TICKETS ONE WAY FROM MIAMI TO NY ."
Pros: "What's the point of charging cheap fares if your seating will suck, you will chrage me FOR ME TO CARRY MY OWN BAG and on top not even a soda is free??? Nothing to eat on the plane unless I am ok with Oreos and Beef jerky? Who told the CEO that this is a good strategy to get people to come back to it... NEVER AGAIN!"
Pros: "Cheap flight!"
Cons: "Maintenance issues on the ground, so didn't leave the airport for an hour and a half. Then due to wind conditions, stranded in the air for another hour. Missed a meeting I was supposed to be at. UGH all around"
Pros: "The view and that the flight was smooth"
Cons: "Frontier didn't let us know the flight has been canceled before we got to MIA airport. They said it was because of inclement weather but actually the weather was very good in both departure and arrival cities. They also stated that many airlines canceled their flights on that day because of same reason, but we checked and found it was not the truth. NO COMPENSATION. NOBODY HELPED THEIR VALUED CUSTOMER TO FIND ANOTHER FLIGHT. WE DID ALL BY OURSELVES."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 20 minutes, then an hour, then another hour, then 7 hours. My 930am flight finally departed at 730pm."
Pros: "It was a direct flight and they lost my bag! I try never to fly Frontier but this one time they had the departure time that coinsided with other family members so I booked it. I should have known something would happen. It always has in the past. How do you stay in business?"
Pros: "Fairly good ticket price"
Cons: "Too hot on plane Extra charge for luggage"
Pros: "Everything except one issue."
Cons: "The handle on luggage was broken by baggage handlers at TYS airport when arrived in Knoxville, TN"
Cons: "Extremely smelly (poor ventilation?), seats dont recline, no table, scary landing that gave air sickness to many. Many extra fees, might as well fly a normal airline."
Cons: "All of the self check-in kiosks were down. Only two people were working the desks. The check-in line was out the door and it took hours to see a representative. Then, the barcode Frontier provided on the boarding pass did not scan with the TSA. I was denied access to screening and sent back up to Frontier's desks. If it wasn't for the generosity of several people in the line, I would have had to wait another several hours before seeing an agent. The inexpensive ticket is not worth it, especially considering one must pay for a carry on. Absolutely the worst experience I've ever had flying."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Not terrible but the cost of the flight doesn't include carry-on charge per person of $35 each way (so add $70 to your ticket even if you travel light). I'm 5'5" and the seats were tight. No tv. No snacks. No charger."
Cons: "THEY CHARGED $40 FOR A LUGGAGE AND $45 FOR CARRY ON"
Cons: "It was NEVER CLEAR to me when I booked the flight that I would later be charged $30 for a carry-on at the time of check-in. It may have been in some fine print somewhere (and even finer print for mobile phone users), but this is outright DECEPTIVE. Also upon check-in, I was led to believe that I could only choose a seat for a $10-$20 surcharge. It was NOT CLEAR that if I allowed random seat selection I could avoid this surcharge. SHAME ON YOU for HIDDEN COSTS."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Check bag was $30 each. Ecxcessive! Did not even serve water without a charge. Seats as horrible. No arb tests to speak of, no cushoning, and no such of a head rest. Never will we use Frontier again!"
Pros: "The crew was fine, polite."
Cons: "My biggest complaint is the lack of communication. Upon booking they do not make you aware that you have to pay extra to bring luggage of any kind. This added $60 to my trip, making the flight no longer "low cost" also I was sitting in the back of the plane and the bathrooms were emitting a sewage smell during the whole flight. We were also delayed for over an hour both ways once sitting on the plane and there was no explanation as to why. I would never consider taking this airline again."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "No access to pre check. No web check in for on line boarding Oh wait I have to pay for a seat!? What I have to pay to bring my NON Checked bag?! Absurd. Never again. Oh, no plugs, no wifi, no entertainment. No snacks or decent food for purchase"
Pros: "My True Experience"
Cons: "I like the fact that the pilot informed us of pertinent information like time expected to arrive, Turbulence and why, how long we maybe staying in the runway and why. The stewardesses were very nice, professional and patient with some of the annoying passengers."
Pros: "Nothing. They did half their job."
Cons: "Their ticket counter at LGA is hardly ever open and when it is their employees are rude. They tried to charge me $410 to change a flight i originally paid $210 for. I tried to move it one day. Also, get ready for a 30 min sales pitch for their credit card. Talk about a captive audience. Garbage airline. Do not use."
Cons: "This was the worst trip made by my. First: frontier in miami knew that was a 31 minutes behind and board the plane Two: we waited 41 minutes sitting on the plane for not reazon. Three: they said we going to be in ny in 2 hours and 14 minutes but we take almost3 hours and four: to pick up the lugge they taken more then 20 minutes to be pick....... Worst trip"
Pros: "Price was slightly lower than other airlines"
Cons: "No water was offered and seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "I didn't have high expectations for Frontier since the price was low. However, even with the low price I expect flights to be on time. Every flight I've taken with Frontier had at least an hour delay."
Pros: "Plane was late arriving to Portland...So I missed my shuttle."
Pros: "We got there safely."
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable. They do not recline - important on a night flight. There is no head rest. Both flights were two hours late. No drinks were offered. You had to ask for water! Any creature comfort was nickeled and dimed to death. By the time you are finished with paying the extras you could have a seat on a major airline."
Pros: "Seamless from beginning to end."
Cons: "Arrived early but waited on runway due to gate occupied. However, wait was tolerable."
Pros: "Loved the crew!"
Pros: "The staff onboard were friendly and the flight was fast and we arrived early."
Cons: "You have to pay for all snacks, no tv, electronic boarding passes don't work with TSA causing me to have to stand in line even though I was already checked in, the counter was understaffed and I don't think I like having to purchase the seat separate from the airline ticket."
Cons: "Frontier charges $30 for every carry on. No where in the processing of purchasing our tickets did it tell us about that extra charge! Once we went to sign in the day before the flight or asked is about our luggage & then charged us the $30!"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Frontier isnt honest about its information display policies... the price displayed on Kayak does not mention that passengers have to pay for carry on.. which is truly an odd expense.. $ 40 each time in a round trip is a considerable expense.. furthermore, there is no mention that I have to pay for water and not to mention the old aiplanes... which rattles... this airline isnt worth the hassle..."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, there was no entertainment, you have to pay $40 for carry on luggage. The flight got delayed 3 hours, the staff was rude to the passengers. We had to take a detour to Philadelphia instead of NY to refuel, which took an extra hour and a half. They gave us no snacks/vouchers in the mean time. We ended up arriving at 10pm instead of the original arrival time of 4pm."
Cons: "The flight came in 2 and a half hours late, supposedly due to a computer glitch in colorado. We then had to stop in Philadelphia to refuel for hours and ended up at Laguardia close to 6 hours late! During that time a no point did the crew offer the passengers any snacks or even water. Not even to the children. They actually made people who couldn't hold any longer pay for snacks and drinks! The pilot then had a tantrum and refused to leave until a dissatisfied passenger was removed. Classy... Also, they make you pay for carry-on. Quite a lot. Smallest seats I have ever been in. Avoid this airline!!!"
Cons: "I didnt like the fact that the flight was delayed and a notification wasn't sent to my phone. I had checked the status that night when I checked in and early in the morning and the system said that the flight was on time. It wasnt until I reached the airport and the lady behind the baggage counter told me that the flight was delayed for two hours. I went to go eat with my daughter at the Chilis restaraunt. I figired since the flight was delayed why not have some lunch and head to the plane an hour before take off time. I left the restarant and went through screening. One of the TSA memebers asked me why was I going in so early when the flight was on delayed. I let them know that the flight was suppose to be taken off in an hour so they let me through. As I'm walking through the terminla they have someone walking bu asking if anyone was getting on the frontier flight. I told them that I was on that flight and they told me I needed to hurry up because the plane was about to leave. I became nervous ans started running down the gate to make it to the plane. I'm running with a two year old so Im pretty sure that you can only imagine how difficult that was. Once I reached the gate I was out of breath and it was suppose to be eight minutes before we took off. However we sat on the plane for about another thirty minutes before we left. I feel as though the communication with the airline is not there 100% and if you are sitting in an airport you should be able to hear the update especially when they are not planned ir taking place at a time that is different from what was already relayed."
Pros: "flight was only delayed because of weather. captain was good to explain and we didn't lose any time in transit."
Cons: "there is no organization, zoning was called two at a time vs. one at a time to allow for ease of lining up."
Cons: "We got bussed from Philadelphia to LGA as plane was short of fuel due to long wait time landing in LGA. It was just terrible. Took forever to get to NY. Not entirely airlines fault. Weather has lot to do with it. But number of factors contributed. Boarding was delayed as we missed our a lot and took of later on top of already late flight. Then. Things just went south. The Staff were very counties and helpful and did their best."
Pros: "The flight arrived earlier then scheduled."
Cons: "The baggage fees on this flight was more then the actual flight ticket."
Pros: "Nothing, never got the chance to board the flight."
Cons: "There was no indication received that Frontier required a check in of 45 minutes ahead of the flight time. And even though I was 2 minutes shy of that time, Frontier crew still did not allow me to check in. RIDICULOUS!!! No other airline has this bogus requirement. In addition, Frontier doesn't give an option for rebooking for another day, which may require an additional fee (as other airlines do). The only remedy for missing a flight is moving to Frontier's next scheduled flight (that is, the next day for a trip from Atlanta because Frontier only has one flight leaving Atlanta per day). Of course, this didn't work for me because I needed to be in New York on the day of my scheduled flight. $200 DOLLARS GONE!! In conclusion, I will never book another trip with Frontier. Also, I will never use another source to acquire a ticket because that source may not provide me with certain requirements for the airlines it sells for."
