Cons: "Good stuff."

Cons: "Seem that they turned off the air conditioning once we landed in the cabin got on the warm side."

Pros: "The service on plane was great and so was the opportunity to check luggage, although I was happy I didn't have to."
Cons: "Boarding from DTW to LAX, we had to stand for a long time on the jetway and it was really cold. It was the holding place after they checked my ticket. Otherwise, it was a great experience flying Delta."

Pros: "Flight was very late- about 45 minutes because of some problem with the "paperwork" they said. It was a beautiful day and the crew was ready to go, but we all sat for a long time before being allowed to leave Madison. It's especially bad when we've all made ourselves arrive at 5am for a 6am flight"
Cons: "on time departure"

Pros: "Not comfortable a little but scary on the flight to Detroit. Way better coming back to Denver"

Cons: "Leg room was lacking."

Pros: "Excellent flight crew, flight had decent leg room. Loved the inflight entertainment. Clean plane, boarding was easy."

Cons: "I checked bag at the gate voluntarily in advance and was able to board zone 1. However, when I got to my destination, I found that a large iten had been removed and was missing. The staff would not help locate or recover it."

Pros: "Inflight crew"
Cons: "The crew member that handled my stroller roughly and tore a hole in the canvas. The canvas was also black with grime from the bottom of the plane it appears. The stroller canvas was expensive and brand new."

Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, great entertainment system"
Cons: "Flight left late due to problem with cleaning crew, seats are uncomfortable, snacks were stale."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine, boarded on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "A pet peeve of mine is having to check my carry on. They said the overhead bins were all completely full, so I checked my bag at the gate. Come to find out, there were a few spaces left and it wasn't necessary. Really annoying."

Pros: "Everything went as planned!"

Cons: "Crew was grumpy and Curt. Seats still smaller than a kindergarten class, and didn't even serve water."

Pros: "The flight was nearly full, but I lucked out. One person in my row did not show up, so myself and the other lady in my row had the benefit of having an open seat in between us. The crew was cheerful and accommodating. They did the normal beverage service, but also brought complimentary water and coffee 3x during the rest of the flight. This was greatly appreciated, especially after 5 days of drinking and partying. My buddies and I spent two and a half days in Las Vegas for a bachelor party followed by two days in the LA area for a wedding (yes we did it Hangover style) :) Thank you Delta!"
Cons: "My only complaint was that the flight was delayed out of LAX by about 30 minutes due to the flight in-bound being delayed. However, the captain made up most of this time in the air so it ended up being a non-issue."

Pros: "Thanks for being so kind to me and my musical instrument. It’s how I make a living and your staff allowed me to keep it safe! I’m a huge fan!!"
Cons: "I didn’t like this question!! You guys are great!!"

Pros: "Nothing particularly stands out. I did arrive safely."
Cons: "First class did not come with lounge access? Drinks were not cold. Bathrooms were falling apart and came with a disgusting odor. Time to retire these aircrafts."

Pros: "The on time departure. The air hostesses were very attentive. Fast baggage arrival"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Everything was great"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "All was good."

Pros: "I purchased round trip tickets to Cancun Mexico for under $400. And I received 1st class upgrades both ways. I could not be happier with my travel."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "My one complaint is the bathroom layout of the A320. Two tiny closet bathrooms in the back for all of coach and a much larger one much larger one first class (which is like 5 rows with a mesh curtain for separation). The coach bathrooms are so small a normal person can barely get in and turn around to close the door. I question whether a larger person would be able to actually use them. I also saw the flight attendant actively turn away coach passengers trying to use the first class bathroom when it was open (not standing in the aisle or anything annoying like that). That's ridiculous to have 2 tiny bathrooms for all of coach and also to make people walk all the way to the back of the plane when you are seated much closer to the first class bathroom."

Pros: "I liked the cabin interior and the inflight entertainment system."
Cons: "The complimentary fruit slices and cheese gave me servere food poisoning (strong symptoms for 36h+). The flight change (added fuel stop an hour before takeoff) showed in the app as canceled flight and disabled the boarding pass. And the several times at the gate verbally advertised on board WiFi didn’t work at all. Not a good expierence."

Cons: "Seats are so tight so uncomfortable"

Pros: "Fabulous fight. Attentive staff and I love the free entertainment tv’s."

Cons: "3.5 hours late."

Pros: "Got me where I needed to go at the price I wanted to pay. - The gals at the ticketing desk were extremely helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Not my typical Delta experience: -Boarding for special needs was a joke. A literal ‘run-on-sentence’. No more did I get up and they went to the next group. I was almost knocked over in the rush. -The onboard staff was nice enough. However, between the two of them, one of them had a thick accent. Maybe that one shouldn’t be the one making all on board announcements… and please fix the horrendous crackles too!!! -It seemed our pilot was in training… during our short flight a series of right and left turns were made, no effort to avoid turbulence, and the landing was surprisingly hard. It felt as if my spine took a quick jab to my brain as a result! What’s up?"

It felt as if my spine took a quick jab to my brain as a result! What’s up?"

Cons: "The gate crew in New York were not in anyway representative of what you as a company are trying to accomplish. Rude, unresponsive, and way to controlling. I watched an 80+ couple who were in first class with me try to board early because of there mobility. "You need to get in line over there on the right" was the answer...sorry to see that happen with Delta !!"

Pros: "The variety of what you could listen to or watch. Liked the way the seats reclined. Plenty of leg room (I am short)."

Pros: "Quick flight"

Cons: "No comemt"

Cons: "Wifi didn't work (network wouldn't show up)."

Pros: "Same as previous"
Cons: "Same as previous"

Pros: "I always feel that the flight attendants on Delta truly care about your flight experience. The smile, the attentiveness, the thoroughness and giving you the attention you desire."
Cons: "Ran out of bananas before they got to me, no big deal and it looks like Delta is getting healthier options every year."

Pros: "The airline crew seems to be getting better, although I can't say that they are super helpful"
Cons: "The seats, just water offered, the bathroom, no Wifi, extremely crowded and small plane. Seriously, I don't understand what is all the money payed used for since I just heard that the crew members might be actually underpaid"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "3.5 hour delay due to lack of co-pilot. No consessions for delay when asked at gate. Lack of leg room. Broken tv, I asked twice to be fix nothing was ever done."

Pros: "The turkey sabdwhich was tasty. Good movies."
Cons: "Telling me the doors were going to close & I couldn't use the restroom prior to boarding. Here I was starving from flight delays. In reality the door stayed open another 15 mins & people boarded with their to go food."

Pros: "Got lucky, and got an upgrade!"
Cons: "Good staff on the plane very sweet like. Actually arrived early. Thought we would get breakfast on the flight from Madison Wisconsin to New York City."

Cons: "Had trouble with entertainment console are 36d"

Pros: "The entertainment system worked well and was able to keep my phone charged."
Cons: "It's very cramped seating. They started boarding by rows but then gave up. Crew are nice."

Pros: "Delta sent a text which notified that our flight was to be delayed and we were free to seek an alternative flight. Delta was able to get us on an earlier Flight land then delivered our luggage the next morning. Delta sent an e-mail with the driver's picture, name and picture of the vehicle. The driver called to notify he was on the way. Excellent service."

Pros: "Great crew, smooth flight"
Cons: "Waiting for luggage in Peoria"

Pros: "Nice flight attendant."
Cons: "Both legs of the flight were delayed, requiring long stays on the tarmac."

Pros: "Many passengers did not have seat assignments and we also ran out of over head storage resulting in many additional bags to be checked at the gate(mine included) but the crew and staff at the desk inside laguardia work quickly and efficiently to get everyone boarded and we ended up landing 15 minutes early."
Cons: "Seating was extremely cramped and the in flight wifi quality was poor, couldn't even watch an hour long movie (on a 2+ hour flight) because of the amount of buffering."

Pros: "Availability of First Class service was the only saving grace."
Cons: "Delays longer than the scheduled flight time. Entertainment options are limited in the time of such a short flight. Long distance between gates when you have been forced into a hurry by delays."

Pros: "All 4 legs of our flight were right on time, and the planes appeared to be clean."
Cons: "Paying first class fare buys a couple of additional inches of space, but nothing more. There's nothing really first class about it."

Cons: "The plane was cold. The entertainment was mediocure. The staff was telling the people to get in their seats quickly as they had missed their scheduled time for take off. Yet, they 1st said we would board a little late because og clearing out the previous flight. And, no one could get carry-ons above their own seats and had to go back to then come forward. The attendants should monitor better what is brought onboard. I thought they were rude. And it took almost an hr to get our luggage at the carosel."

Pros: "service"
Cons: "offer coffee at least"

Pros: "The entertainment program was exceptional."
Cons: "The crew wasn't very friendly and gave the impression they were tired of their jobs. The afternoon 'snack' pizza disguised as a hot-pocket in a small box was served 40 minutes before landing. This snack wasn't enough and wa served far too late for a flight that lasted 11 hours."

Cons: "I’m tall. And there is no room to put my legs or my arms."

Cons: "Faster baggage pickup at DFW"

Cons: "Over booked flight"

Pros: "The crew on the plane were great but even better was the women at the counter in terminal. She was amazing at getting everyone rerouted to their destinations"
Cons: "The WiFi was broken. the plane needed to be inspected and it took 2 attempts to get paperwork right and there was no inspector on the ground. 3 hours later after sitting on the plane for an hour with no food or drinks. If people have waited that long for one of your flights, give them a little food"

Pros: "Nice aircraft once I got to Texas. From my hometown the plane was kind of old."
Cons: "Well they lost my luggage after my original flight was delayed 2+ hours. Rebooked my flight but never communicated to me whether they would handle my bag transfer or if I needed to go get them myself From the baggage claim to put into the correct flight. So I had no clothes..."

Pros: "The flight attendant gave me a whole can of Diet Coke (I didn’t ask for it)"
Cons: "Seat number is crazy. ACDF. How about ABCD..."

Cons: "When my husband retrieved his piece of luggage, it smelled terribly lie dog poop. We had to drive home with the windows all the way down because the stench was so bad and throw away the suitcase I had just bought because of the terrible smell. Just awful to come home to that!"

Pros: "That I arrived on time"
Cons: "Without any kind of entertainment, Some soft music will be better than the aircraft noise.."

Cons: "Seats are small but I understand why just dont like it."

Pros: "Only thing that was good was tail wind."
Cons: "The plane was so small and tight. And they sat me next to 260lbs x football player in this tiny plane. Not really your fault but a plane that size is just too small esp when your neighbor is double your size."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight from Madison to Chicago got cancelled and I had to drive for three hors to get to o’ Hare."

Pros: "Hm...can’t really think of anything remarkably good about this flight."
Cons: "The FA making announcements was extremely rude and condescending. Other FA’s were listless and unhelpful, even discourteous to elderly passengers who needed assistance boarding. The seat was uncomfortable, no legroom, the guy ahead of me reclined before we even took off and no one made him put it up"

Cons: "There was a maintenance issue on departing plane which delayed us a few minutes and when we arrived to layover airport (note we still arrived before the connecting flight was scheduled to leave), the connecting flight had decided to leave early and was gone. Now stranded with standby and all the flights for the next few days are sold out. Beyond angry!"

Pros: "Great short flight"

Pros: "The movie selection."
Cons: "2 hours stuck on the plane before leaving from London to Columbus, in flight entertainment had to be restarted twice on same flight."

Pros: "I took two connecting flights on American Airlines between Los Angeles and Lisbon period on the website American claims to have charging and or electrical ports in every row. There were none on either flight. To make matters worse, when my tablet and phone batteries both died before the end of the first flight, there was no inflight entertainment, other than 1 ridiculous thing available, on either flight. American has switched to BYOD for entertainment, but forgot to provide a way to charge our own devices. Incredibly stupid."
Cons: "On top of that, one of the flight attendants on the Philadelphia to Lisbon run was a hella snarky guy with a bad attitude all the way through. I would be surprised if I am the first person to complain about him."

Pros: "The flight was on time and I was upgraded to First Class!"

Cons: "Customer service was AWFUL after our flight was delayed from Nashville to Dallas causing us to miss our connecting flight to Bozeman. I will definitely NOT be coming back to American Airlines after that experience."

Pros: "The flight was fine once we took off, but we sat on the runway for over two hours before we were able to take off. Also, being expected to pay extra for a seat sucks!"
Cons: "The flight was fine. The selection of films was excellent, lots to choose from including some very recent releases."

Cons: "The Crew Tried to take us from our seats so they could sleep in our seats. They tried to relocate us to the last row where the seats don't recline.they were very abusive and rude, we have it all on a body Cam and we'll lodge formal charges against American Airlines once we return to the States. Worse Trip EVER."

Pros: "The on-board attendants were personable and efficient."
Cons: "The lack of overhead storage was not noted at the gate so about half the passengers had to have their hand luggage tagged on the plane itself, involving wheeling to the back to be tagged. Then once everyone was seated, the attendant wheeled them by and passengers had to call out when they saw their bag go by so that they could be issued the corresponding luggage claim ticket. The seat width and pitch was sad compared to 'low cost' airlines like JetBlue."

Cons: "Very old plane. No personal entertainment. Very basic service."

Pros: "The drew and food were decent. In fact, there was so much service with food and drinks, I had to refuse a few times."
Cons: "AA squashed as many people in this plane as possible. No leg room whatsoever on an 11 hour flight."

Pros: "Poor airplane not have nothing"

Pros: "That it was over night"

Cons: "Food was mediocre, portions were extremely small, breakfast seriously they should stop serving that muffin with yogurt."

Cons: "The fact that my party was seated in different areas of the plane."

Cons: "bumpy ride"

Cons: "n/s as only a 40 minute flight"

Cons: "Late and delayed arrival. No seed assign until I was at the gate"

Pros: "Staff for the airline was very good!"
Cons: "I had to check a second bag on my return. I entered Mexico with a skateboard carry on. When I went to leave, the airport would let me pass through with it. I was forced to check a second bag and it really bothered me."

Pros: "Flights were on-time, planes were clean/newer, snacks were good."
Cons: "Their boarding/de-boarding process was quite inefficient - they have boarding zones, but then you just go to a shuttle and it's a free for all at the plane."

Cons: "Lot of movement"

Cons: "Pretzels too salty"

Cons: "food was cold and the soda I had had no gas."

Cons: "I'm still waiting for my 10 pm flight and it's almost 2am."

Pros: "Layover was short"
Cons: "I was charged for my carry on that they then forced me to check. Then one of the stewards on the second leg was an outright nasty woman regarding masks. I had my mask over nose and mouth. But apparently not enough and then she was loudly talking to the other flight attendants about it. One told me “I was perfectly fine.”"

Pros: "The crew was helpful accommodating, the flight was smooth and it was just a very pleasant experience overall"

Cons: "Seats are REALLY small"

Pros: "fast flight"
Cons: "no crew to unload plane, ended up sitting on runway for 1 hour + at RDU, at 1:00 AM"

Cons: "Not on time, flight got cancelled and they just rebooked to the next day with no support for overnight stay, rental, etc."

Pros: "On-time departure. Grouped boarding"
Cons: "Had to gate check bag, but I’ve flown this flight often enough to know that. Missed beverage service while dozing . Cart was just 2 rows past and never got a chance."

Cons: "My passport was held up because of the Government shutdown and I was treated poorly about trying to change my ticket. I now can’t go because I can’t afford to change ticket and the waiver documents I need to do so sounds like it’s just another excuse from the airline for not honoring my ticket. I can’t go now because of passport, but I can’t go because I am unable to buy another ticket"

Cons: "Delays and poor communication. Ended up on other airline and 14 hrs to get from Madison, WI to Baltimore, MD"

Pros: "That I made it"
Cons: "The delays, the long standby lists, the 4 hour late arrival"

Cons: "Delayed 2 hours."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "Every time I paused my movie, it was difficult to resume it. I couldn't watch the last half at all."

Pros: "The actual crew on the flight was lovely and apologetic, did everything they could to help us despite the delays. At least that's something."
Cons: "Delayed for over an hour but not notified of the length of the delay in a fashion which would allow me to drive the 2 hours to Chicago in order to make my connection. Repeatedly told the connecting flight was the last one out of the entire airport to my final destination. Heard other travelers discussing that they had been rebooked onto an alternate airline and then found a later flight on Kayak, walked up to podium and asked to be rebooked on that specific flight, which they grudgingly did. Of note, I was repeatedly reassured that they were "sure" I would make my connection without a problem and to stop worrying so much. My flight left out of Madison 2 minutes after my connection departed Chicago. I usually fly a different airline, whose flights out of Madison were all on time that day, and will do so in the future despite more expensive ticket. The actual crew on the flight was lovely and apologetic, did everything they could to help us despite the delays. At least that's something."

Pros: "Boarding was earlier than schedule."

Pros: "Cheap tix"

Pros: "There is nothing positive to say."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 8 hours. We boarded and unboarded the plane 3 times. Why didn't they just cancel the flight? I missed my connecting flight. No food or beverage service. Didn't even let us use the airplane bathroom after a long delay. I paid to check my luggage and they LOST it and sent it to the wrong airport."

Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "Everything was fine."

Pros: "Half-hour flight, early to destination, which gave us plenty of time for our connecting flight."
Cons: "Why pay extra for baggage? This should be included in the ticket price -- which incidentally was not cheap!"

Pros: "Short flight"

Pros: "Friendly staff Easy boarding"
Cons: "The flight had no snacks. The seats werent comfortable."

Cons: "I haven't made it there yet. Flight leaves 4PM Friday. Mechanical problems in Chicago so was put up in Hyatt and I am at the airport now waiting to fly out at 4PM today."

Pros: "Great service!"

Cons: "I would like to rate my flight HOME. United CANCELED my flight one hour prior to boarding. PISSED"

Cons: "flight was canceled due to mechanical problems on two of the airplanes"

Pros: "Fast"
Cons: "Small plane"

Pros: "Flight was shorter than expected"
Cons: "Bathrooms were dirty and sound wasn't working for first in flight movie"

Pros: "Boarding was uneventful, but I wish I could have gotten a gate check....I;m 76 and getting my bag above the seat is difficult. But the gate attendant said there was no gate check on that flight."
Cons: "I had a center seat and that is very uncomfortable for me."

Pros: "I took 4 different flights and all the crews seemed to all be moody."

Pros: "Getting a seat in economy plus! (But I think that happened because I had trouble using the online seat booking process and couldn't get a seat assignment till I got to the gate for my Albany flight, probably the only seat available) also liked arriving early in Albany."
Cons: "Arriving at the end of terminal C and having to trek to the end of terminal B for my connecting flight. Supposedly a one hour window, but by the time I got off, and made that enormous trek, no time to get a meal. Going to Madison flights left from almost adjoining gates. Lovely!"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Flying in general"

Pros: "They kept us well hydrated"
Cons: "How far I had to get to me next flight in Chicago"

Pros: "Took United Airlines to Phoenix for a family wedding. Flight went well. Slight delay, but pilot made up the time. On return trip, arrived 30 minutes ahead of schedule. Staff on all flights were friendly and accommodating. Snacks were the usual, nothing to write home about. Entertainment access was provided through your device. Would recommend United."

Pros: "Crew was great, food was good, and had a superb entertainment selection."
Cons: "Comfort was as issue, I was assigned more leg room at the emergency row and the wall would be pushing against me, forcing me to go towards my neighbors side. Also, I had initially picked the last row to sit on, which was stated on my itinerary but when I printed my boarding pass, I got assigned middle of plane - which I did not understand nor complain about."

Cons: "paid entertainment"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "The 4 hour delay due to "wifi" issue caused us to miss our connecting flight to Kona, Hawaii! We thought it would be a quicker and shorter flight buying a direct flight from United from IAD to HNL then to Kona, but we were wrong! We are upset and disappointed that it caused us a day of our vacation! We will avoid United for future travels!"

Pros: "Staff was professional and friendly flight was smooth and nice."

Pros: "I liked the crew members"
Cons: "Weeichair service was late"

Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off."

Cons: "Unable to depart due to pilot wanting windows washed. Created significant delay. Had to rebook flight for next day. Additional cost as a result. I will seek a refund which was due to the delay."

Pros: "Normal flight"
Cons: "Lack of entertainment or concern my pregnant wife to move to different seating"

Pros: "The price, fact it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Both flights had mechanical problems, causing delays, the wait for luggage back in New York, over25 minutes"

Cons: "The flight was fully booked during Covid. I just flew the other weekend with another airline and felt safe. I can not believe how gross and I safe I felt on this flight. I will never fly Frontier again."

Cons: "You have to pay extra for carryon luggage, snack or beverage. No entertainment. Very tiny non-padded seats."

Pros: "Affordable fare, reasonable luggage fee."

At first our flight supposed to be 8:50 delayed until 10:47 , and delay 11:10 and go back to 10;15 we had to drive from all the way from flattvile make it there at 10 . The airplane left early right at 10 . We have to reschedule can’t leave until Thursday. I miss my work and I have my kids with me . We have to drive back to flattvile doe another one hour and half. That’s horrible"

Cons: "too costly for baggage fees, seat assignment, and beverage"

Pros: "Was charged for a carry on bag in Madison for a bag that fit into the box marked "personal item size", showed the counter person that charged me that it easily fit, she then told me " a credit would be placed back on to my credit card", this has yet to appear. My next move is to go back to the counter at the airport here in madison and inquire into this matter."
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "No free soft drinks. Took too long to claim baggage"

Pros: "Flight was suppose to leave at 9:25 am. It was delayed then we were boarded then unboarded because plane problem was not fixed. Given $10 food voucher that doesn’t cover a airport meal. Then finally at 4:45 we boarded again. Finally made it back to Bismarck @ 6:45 CT. Til I picked up my kids and got home (hr drive) it was 9:30 pm. Not impressed. Have been hearing that frontier has a lot of plane issues!"

Cons: "While trying to arrange a flight home from college for my son after the tragedy here in Las Vegas, I accidently clicked the wrong flight. I called immediately and they said sorry there is nothing they could do. Zero customer service. I hope they enjoy the money for the flight that wasn't able to be used."

Pros: "The flight was short and the adjacent passengers were polite and friendly"
Cons: "The $115 charge for my bag because it was 8lbs overwieght and the check-in personnel were very unhelpful and demanding, on the phone the frontier representative was also unhelpful, just out to rip-off customers as much as they can."

Cons: "Watch out for hidden fees and sly attempts to fool customers into confirming acceptance of their credit card while patron is only trying to confirm check-in details."

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Not offered beverage. Flight departedate."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Seats keep getting smaller and less leg room."

Pros: "It was a quick flight."

Pros: "Friendly crew members"
Cons: "Carry on bag fee too high. Not much leg room. Plane was dirty."

Pros: "Assigned seats is the only positive"
Cons: "i was never even offered water the stewardess served those around me. I couldn't get her attention at all. With no room to move the hard seat was unbearable. Charging for carry-on is ludicrous. I thought the huge layover time tolerable given initial ticket price. That was until I was charged for everything but the air I breathed. Frontier is no longer the premier airline it once was"

Pros: "Staff was great"
Cons: "Seats are very hard and the fact that you have to pay for a simple glass of water"

Pros: "I really liked the crew. They kept us entertained and the pilot was very comical."
Cons: "The seats were a little uncomfortable"

Pros: "The crew was friendly, that was the only positive thing. Had to wait on the plane for 45 minutes before deboarding. My luggage was specified "oversized" and set aside without my knowledge. The seats were horribly uncomfortable and would not recline. Baggage fees are ridiculous. I'm avoiding Frontier at all costs in the future."

Cons: "2 hour delay"

Pros: "We arrived 40 minutes early. Flight attendants were friendly."

Pros: "Arrived early but then had to sit on tamark to wait for open gate. When able to check in at terminal desk, was able to go through TS-Pre check when I got my ticket."
Cons: "Seats too close together. Crew didn't come through cabin very often to check on passengers or pick up trash. Don't like use card for few dollars of drinks or food. Terminal desk wasn't open when I went to check in 2 hours early. Had difficult time with kiosk. Paying $40 each for carry on both ways and more for a window seat. Flight was delayed from Denver to Madison."

Pros: "I liked the process of my ticket, at first. The flight attendants were kind."
Cons: "I didn't like that theyou had not been serviced by provisioning before we departed from Denver. There was plenty of time to service the aircraft and to not provision it is beyond me. The prices for food and beverage were high and to add tax on after the fact is a joke. To pay for your seat AFTER you had purchased your ticket was another surprise. Im honestly surprised I was not charged to use the restroom."

Cons: "It took me an hour to check in and check my bag in Denver. Crew in Denver was not friendly, helpful or quick. Will never fly Frontier again"

Pros: "I got where I needed to be safely."
Cons: "Extra charges for baggage; late; cramped."

Pros: "Friendly flight staff."
Cons: "When we got to Denver, our gate wasn't ready and we had to sit on the plane for an HOUR AND A HALF before we were able to exit the aircraft. Here's the thing - don't train the staff to keep saying 'just a couple more minutes.' Don't placate, just be real. Prepare us for the wait."

Pros: "One of the stewards cracked a joke about my fiance's Green Bay Packers shirt, but was kind of awkward about it."
Cons: "Frontier is the new bottom-of-the-barrel in air travel. Bag fees for carry-ons? Who does that anymore? Especially when they all go on the same plane anyway. Seats are plastic buckets with no recline (which to be honest is great from the tall guy sitting behind you) covered in a very thin layer of pad and leather. No headrests, which means if you're taller than 6 foot, good luck being comfortable. Tray "tables" are a joke, it can barely accommodate a glass of water. Oh, and water? That's the only thing free with Frontier. Glass of OJ, Sprite, maybe Bloody Mary mix? Nah, you can pay for that. Brought headphones to plug in and watch a movie? Too bad, there's only the gray plastic in front of you. Basically, don't fly Frontier if you can afford not to."

Cons: "Poor customer service. Not a smooth operation."

Pros: "Orderly, polite and well done."
Cons: "I'd sure like a free small snack."

Pros: "Everything up to the landing was fine. The pilot and crew were very transparent."
Cons: "We landed on time but had to wait on the tarmac for almost an hour for a crew to be available to park our plane even though we had a gate. It is unfortunate that Frontier cannot staff appropriately to manage incoming flights."

Cons: "Hidden fees edit everything-difficult for work justification. Poor option for business travel where expenses need to be tracked & justified."

Pros: "We waited 45 minutes to unload. When a child is sing ok ng at the top of her lungs for half an hour would it not be appropriate to ask her t o be quiet. It was an even I n b flight. I understand that babies will cry and some people talk loud but it is rude to sing loud we hen it is a late flight. You cannot count on parents to have common sense."
Cons: "They did ask that you wait for the people that needed to make connections to go girst."

Pros: "Except the animals. I still like the animals. Honestly, the only reason I ever fly frontier now is when it happens to be the cheapest. I do like direct flights, but I don't mind two hops if I can actually sleep on the plane because the seats are comfier on other airlines."
Cons: "Seats don't recline at all (they used to!), and they are much harder than they were before. Which makes it more difficult to sleep on the plane. When we landed, we were about to be ahead of schedule, but either due to some disorganization on the part of your staff, or due to not having enough Frontier gates in DEN, we had to wait at least 30 minutes to actually get off the plane, which made us very late to what was already going to be a long, late drive. You just made it worse and made us more tired. Also, not a huge deal, but what happened to the inflight entertainment? It seems like when you changed out the seats, the entertainment went away too."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The seats were small & of cheap quality. Leg room was poor. Everything had an extra price."

Pros: "Nothing better than a non-stop flight. Flying isn't my favorite thing to do but this flight was pretty excellent as far as flights go."

Pros: "On time!!"
Cons: "Charged to choose a seat at airport"

Pros: "Fast"
Cons: "The whole plane smelled like diapers it was nasty"

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was rude when I was taking my seat. She was rushing me to sit down and put on my seat belt, when I had my own row and no one else was affected by this. Then, as we were landing, the turbulence was bad and we were descending extremely quickly. The plane then pulled up and started ascending back into the air and did a lap around the airport. I wasn't sure we were going to make it back to the ground in one piece. Not the most comfortable experience. Overall poor flight."

Pros: "Price is right"
Cons: "Charges for carry-on and checked baggage"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Dirty seat next to me. Flight crew in back chatting away while I cleaned it. Seat only average comfort. Had to tip for purchase of a drink. Cost of checked bag is exhorbitent!"

Pros: "Quick, we were on time"
Cons: "Lack of communication, expensive fare for the quality"

Pros: "The basic fare was O K until you add baggage"
Cons: "Baggage fees were uncalled for. $110 for baggage next airline please. New seat design sucks."

Cons: "Absolutely miserable. Seats are uncomfortable, they charge for EVERYTHING (seriously, $40 for a carry on?!) and then after waiting for a 4 hour layover they cancel the flight but give very few details other than "be back here tomorrow." One of the worst flying experiences I've ever had."

Pros: "I liked that I did not have to pay for my carry on luggage. The airline industry has gone too far with fees."
Cons: "Paying for water, coffee."

Pros: "Left on time and arrived early. Only direct flight Denver to Madison WI"
Cons: "Had to pay to check in online. Had to pay to carry on my own bag. Had to pay for a Club Soda. SEATS DON'T RECLINE."
