Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Flight took too long to go off"
Pros: "Friendly crew Fairly clean air craft"
Cons: "Seats don't boot recline There is not even one complementary drink during duration of a flight"
Pros: "Flight schedule as well as flight earlier than schedule"
Cons: "Nothing found at all"
Pros: "Flight arrived very early"
Cons: "At check in staff were trying to make me check in a bag that's a carry on size. I have carried this duffle bag as a carry on for years with various airlines. I had a normal size duffle bag ands tag at check in were being extremely pushy advising me to pay an additional $40 to check in my duffle bag. He stated if I didn't check it in now they would make me pay an additional $60. I decided to take the risk and not check it in and I had no problems with my bag at the gate. I'm not sure if this is something they do to profit more money, but it was definitely an inconvenience going back and forth with the staff about my bag."
Cons: "2 hour delay on flight"
Cons: "I'm bigger and taller than average with chronic back pain. The seats are so uncomfortable. won't be doing this again."
Cons: "The delay and boarding was a nightmare"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Most everything such as seat assignment, checked bags, carry on bags and any drinks of any kind or snacks were extra. The seats were very uncomfortable to sleep in and no entertainment"
Cons: "Seats don't recline, have to pay for soda etc"
Cons: "Everything was fine other than how cold it was on the plane. The coldness actually woke me up several times because it was so bad."
Cons: "No wifi."
Pros: "Minimal flight attendant interaction on the overnight."
Cons: "Carry on fee is ridiculous"
Cons: "I arrived 35 minutes prior to departure and was told I was too late to board and would have to buy a new ticket to fly the next day. There was no concern whatsover by the customer rep to even attempt to accommodate us. There are too many fees associated with this airline if you're not aware. I will definitely not be flying Frontier ever again amd will recommend everyone I know to stay away as well."
Cons: "The outrageous surcharges for seats and luggage and the incredibly uncomfortable plane ride"
Cons: "First of all the fact that you pay for carry ons is ridiculous. I paid $75 for one checked back and one carry on ( a normal amount of luggage) and then had to wait for over an hour for my checked bag to be delivered to baggage claim. There is no complimentary drinks on the flights and the seats don't recline. You think you are initially saving money because flights tend to be cheaper but by the time you pay for all the extra fees like buying a seat and luggage fees, it ends up being just as expensive as any other flight with worse service. Not worth it."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight because the pilot did not show up. They did not do anything and I lost 300 dollars because of their own fault. I will never ever use Frontier Airlines in the future."
Cons: "Flight changed 3 different times. After 3 hour delay the WHOLE plane was boarded. Then they de-boarded everyone. My Step-Mothers funeral was at 10AM on Tuesday morning and I was suppose to help carry her casket. The next fight with Frontier would've put me in Chicago the next day at 9pm with a 12+ layover in Seattle. I missed my Step-Mothers funeral and STILL have not been refunded!"
Pros: "We had to rebook and it cost us an extra thousand dollars!!! Insane!"
Pros: "Just the boarding because i have 3 kids ,so i received the early boarding."
Cons: "seat barely got in the sit, my wife just squeezed in the seat. , no entertainment. no snack or anything to drink at all."
Pros: "Quiet, smooth flight - but that had nothing to do with Frontier. Just lucky this time around."
Cons: "The seats didn't recline - none of them. This made for a very uncomfortable option for a red-eye flight. Even though I paid the $45 for extra leg room, still was uncomfortable sitting up straight for 4.5 hours. The only free thing was water - a small glass - mostly ice. Otherwise the tickets were cheap - but then the cost savings was eaten up by purchasing seats (even the cheap ones were still $15) luggage and carry on. Why do they even pay the flight attendants - they don't do anything."
Pros: "New aircraft and ontime flight"
Cons: "cheap all around."
Pros: "The crew were the best flight crew I have had, funny, enthusiastic, happy to help and very friendly. If all your crews were like that it would be awesome"
Pros: "Terrible service, seats and amenities"
Pros: "Airline attendants were kind."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable - I could feel the metal underneath the leather. But most importantly, I wish there was more signage about the baggage fee for a carry-on. If I would have known that I couldn't take a carry-on without having to pay for it, I would have checked my bag. I was extremely frustrated having to pay even more than the original fee at the gate. Because of this, I am never flying Frontier again."
Pros: "Flights were in time"
Pros: "the way they treat from begning to end of flight."
Cons: "The discount terminal at LAX was a zoo. The flight was pushed back multiple times, with gate changes, and I think we left almost three hours after the scheduled departure. There was little acknowledgment of the delay -- something like a free beverage would have been nice to make up for the scheduling inconveniences. The flight itself was very spartan and the lack of cushioning or reclining made it a pretty uncomfortable few hours. After touchdown, we were on the tarmac for at least forty minutes waiting for a gate to open up. This was not a good experience -- I felt like a fifth-class (or lower!) traveler and I will probably pay a little more to avoid flying with this airline in the future."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Charge for checked bag and additional charge for carry-on as well. Seating and food tray for pitiful at best. The tray was only about 6 inches by 9i inches and the seats did not recline at all. There was not a screen or anything to watch for a 4 hour flight; if you didn't bring your own entertainment. Beverages were not complimentary unless you wanted a small glass of water with no ice. So your fare may be slightly cheaper but you are stuck with additional costs that more than offset the cheaper air fare price."
Pros: "They charge for carry on bags"
Pros: "On time ."
Cons: "Baggage fee"
Cons: "Cheaper, non-reclining seats, like Spirit."
Pros: "carry on and handbags should be free, especially for international travellers who do a short trip within the country and stay for few weeks, this would be helpful economically. Try this, if we show our international limited stay and we do a trip within this period to intercity this could be a welcome relief. Right now, my parents are in that category and I am seeing them juggle with their luggage limitations."
Cons: "limiting to free either carry on or handbag"
Pros: "We left on time!"
Cons: "The seats were not as comfortable as those on the flight (Frontier) to LAX. It also tooko 1/2 hour to get the bags off of the plane."
Pros: "The crew was professional."
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable so it makes it difficult to sleep. Ours was a red-eye so that was not good."
Pros: "attendant was helpful in moving members of my group to sit together"
Cons: "Paying for carry-on!! what? Also, seats don't recline"
Pros: "I liked that the airline later gave us a voucher for $100, however I do not feel the amount given was even close to was owed for the amount of trouble we were caused by the poor customer service of the airline."
Cons: "1. Having our flight delayed over 5 hours for "weather delays" in a city that had nothing to do with our route 2. No communication from the airline about the delay prior to the flight 3. Having to sleep in the LAX airport with my pregnant fiancée 4. Being told that we can't get on our flight in Chicago although we were to the airport more than 45 min prior to departure time 5. Horrific customer service"
Cons: "I arrived later than anticipated, flight was delayed and was late for a work meeting"
Cons: "the baggage fees were extremely high. i would have paid a higher fare upfront knowing i didn't have to pay for my carry-on. i ended up paying an additional $90 for my carry-on! i also didn't like the fact that i had to pay more money to check-in online; i already paid for my fare, why do i have to pay some more? the seats were very uncomfortable, there was no wifi or entertainment on board during flight and you couldn't even get a free cup of water. EVERYTHING had a cost. the crew wasn't friendly, i wasn't greeted at either flight. i will neve fly frontier and i will sharing my experience with all of my family and friends."
Cons: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "The flight attendants were very rude"
Pros: "The boarding the crew on time taking off & leaving .....great"
Cons: "I had no idea the seats didn't move back I didn't know about the extra charges for everything including seat assignment I mean are you kidding me"
Pros: "Flight left early, and arrived about 45 mins early, no problems on the flight, friendly staff, excellent price, very happy customer!"
Pros: "Fairly new plane. Quick boarding."
Cons: "Too aggressive boarding agent in LA trying to sell for on board carry on."
Pros: "No good seats---no good padding--by the end of the flight I wanted out of the plane.Arm rests are a JOKE!!!no more flights on frontier."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "El personal muy hamable el vuelo estuvo cómodo el avion limpio"
Cons: "Was not informed of the extra charges for carry on baggage. No food or even snacks included in the trip...not even the basic things like water, blankets and earphones. This was not made clear or indicated in the ticket when I bought it. Would have never bought the ticket if I knew that was not the real and total price. On top of that ... there are no checks in place to make sure that all the passengers had paid for the carry on. I paid but I will dispute the charge and get it back based on the aiirlines' inconsistent practice regarding that. The policy is not enforced on everyone."
Pros: "Go take a look at what Southwest is doing and DO THAT!"
Pros: "Biggest negative? Charged me 30 dollars to check my luggage, tossed it around so much that a bottle of scotch broke all over the contents, leaving me nothing to give as gift and nothing to wear . When I asked the representative at the airport what she could do about it, she said, "oh those things happen. " Not planning to go with Frontier again."
Cons: "That’s everyone should keep their mask on"
Cons: "The check in staff. Had No sympathy that I had to leave my things because I was not charged the 1st time I went. But I. The way back u was getting charged I had the same bags as the 1st flight. Then 1 of my kids mask broke and I had no card mask should be giving out if a person is not weak g one. I am very unhappy with spirit"

Pros: "Stewardess gave me a military discount. Very much appreciated"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive when I did and I still don't have it. They overcharge for food and luggage. Flight was delayed."

Pros: "Crew was entertaining. They had to be to make up for all the other shortcomings of Spirit airlines"
Cons: "Seats did not recline. Charges for everything that are not disclosed up front."
Cons: "The first time i decided to fly Spirit and my flight cancels due to "techinical difficulties." The Women also wasnt going to give me a refund until i called back and started a screaming war."
Cons: "Setting, no reclining ability."
Pros: "Didn't get on"
Cons: "Over priced luggage fees. Unclean planes, untrained employees"
Cons: "Sharpness of boarding gal when asked a question very politely. Then gave her counterpart a very sharp answer when told something also needed to be covered/"
Cons: "Flight was said to board at 5:55 So I waited at the gate since 530 and was not called up. Turns out the plane had already boarded and I was left behind as well as about 10-15 other people!"
Pros: "Initial price, before being charged for everything separately"
Cons: "Being charged for everything separately, after the fact. Made it hard to compare true price against other airlines."
Cons: "Apparently there is a strike with the pilots and they are canceling flights left and right. We waited at the airport for almost 24 hours to see if they could find us another flight only to be put on a different airline and fly out the next day and we arrived in a different destination completely"

Pros: "Never never never again."
Pros: "I appreciated the flight being on time and also that the pilot warned us about the turbulence that we would be encountering."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to pay to sit next to the second ticket that I bought. I could have cared less where I sat. I just makes sense to me that if I buy two tickets together, that we should get to sit together without extra fees. I know that many airline do that now, but I will always have a problem with it."
