I am pregnant and was carrying a 2 y/o toddler and had no preferential/priority treatment. Though we arrived 2+ hours before our departure, we only just made our flight. Ground crew were unfamiliar with Brazilian laws on entry for citizens with expired passports. Our bags never left DC and we received them over 72 hours later in Sao Paulo, after much confusion. We were not offered any means of compensation for this inconvenience."

Cons: "Cuando abordé el avión me di cuenta de que el espacio sobre uno no es necesariamente el espacio designado para su maleta de mano, ya que uní puede guardar su maleta en el espacio sobre otra persona; sujeto a la voluntad del pasajero o la disponibilidad del espacio en el compartimiento. Creo que cada pasajero debería llevar su equipaje de mano justo sobre su asiento para evitar desorden, mal entendidos o que se pierda equipaje de mano entre la confusión."

La señal para llamar por teléfono usando mi propia proveedor. Es un aeropuerto del siglo pasado que ya es hora COPA que tiene su centro de operaciones pongan de su parte para hacer más placentero la estadía en ese aeropuerto; aeropuertos como el CR o el de Bogotá no más sale uno del avión y hay excelente wifi que le permite a uno estar en contacto con la familia."

Cons: "I was unable to travel with three suitcases, despite the fact that I was willing to pay for the third bag. I had to put some of my stuff in another bag and was charged overweight. What infuriates me is the fact that at no point of the web check in process I was warned about this. No warning, no email, nothing. I am never using Copa Airlines again and I am warning everyone I know not to use this third-rate airline ever!"

Pros: "Great and safe"

Cons: "BWI check-in crew is not friendly, not related to Japan Airline."

Pros: "Not at all"

Cons: "Complimentary drinks & snacks"

Pros: "Service staff were very nice. I felt bad for them. See below."
Cons: "Flying in an airplane that has the fuel to make it to the destination. We had to make an emergency stop during take off. The pilot said an American pilot in another plane caused him to make the emergency stop. Then he said we had to refuel!!!"

Pros: "On schedule A+, even ahead of schedule a few minutes."
Cons: "Very little legroom, not reclinable seats, no carry-on included, no snacks included for the 3+ hour flight. They should include more for the price."

Pros: "The crew were fantastic and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Leg space was a bit tight for a tall person so if you can get an exit row do it."

Cons: "Everything needs to change. I will never use this airline again!"

Cons: "No water on any flight. Terrible customer service. Will never fly with them again."

Cons: "Volaris closes flight doors an hour prior to departure. Thats unheard of. Meaning they close even if you do not have to check luggage and even though its within boarding time, if you are not checked in at least one hour prior to departure you will not be able To fly And they offer no refunds or reb"

Cons: "It was an overnight flight so I would have appreciated if the crew members refrain from super loud conversations right next to my seat (I was obviously trying to sleep as everyone else on the flight."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "luggage waiting time and boarding"

Cons: "I could not check in on my phone. I never received email or link to check in. I tried 4 times in the previous 24 hour period. Using the app wasn’t mentioned until on the plane. When we arrived at the gate, 45 prior to departure, we were initially told to wait until the boss was there. 15 minutes lat"

Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "More organization toward boarding"

Pros: "The airline, Volaris, is great! Very professional and on time! They also took my luggage without charging me extra. Overall a great experience!"

Cons: "Boarding system , expensive and low quality food for sale on board, entertainment on board, unhelpful stewardess staff, deplaning system keep us waiting for half an hour to open the airplane door at the Cancun airport gate"

Pros: "Please don't travel with Volaris, extremely old seats I felt like I was seating on a wooden board with some rocks on it. No room leg. You won't get any help from the Staff at check-in. I was charged $10 to print your boarding pass, the machines to print the boarding pass didn't work."
Cons: "Volaris need to get new seats. Volaris charge you almost for even breathing, I am not kidding. They ask you to use the machines at the airport to print the boarding pass but their logo is not on this machines that's how they make $10 on each passenger. Bad experience."

Pros: "."
Cons: "I lost my connection because my first flight was delayed. It would be amazing if Kiwi.com would refund my unused flight Cancun-Chicago. I paid for a checked bag with Frontier, they didn't let me in the gate because I arrived 10 minutes later and I didn't get my money back for my luggage."

Cons: "gates changed multiple times, got different information from different people. had to shuttle to the plane. over an hour delayed but no notifications of delay were ever updated"

Cons: "Kiwi lost my reservation I lost my fligh"

Pros: "Great experience and service."

Pros: "Enogh room to move to an extra seat"
Cons: "Flight attendent was sassy"

Pros: "Ticket prices"
Cons: "On our flight back they were weighing bags as we were in line to board and charging people who had no idea their bag was over weight. The crew came off somewhat rude and annoyed when asked questions. flight left 30 minutes after scheduled departure. Food and drinks were both charged when I can pay a little more on another airline and get it for free. Lines for bag drop off are ridiculously long and not organized. Charging service fee for help to get a boarding pass is uncalled for, since many older people are traveling."

Cons: "Nothing very bad airline"

Pros: "Puntuales y eficientes"
Cons: "Pocas cortesías en alimentos y bebidas"

Pros: "Punctuality, friendly flight crew"
Cons: "Boarding was an unorganized free-for-all"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Social distancing guidelines should be applied on plane. Rather than leave 20+ seats empty, and cram everyone 6 to a row. Flight was over 2 hours delayed due to not having maintenance staff available. And then I was crammed in next to an oversized individual where we couldn’t even keep the armrest down."

Pros: "The legroom we paid for."
Cons: "This time the attendant still wouldn’t let anyone in rows 2 & 3 place the carry on they had paid extra for in the overhead bins, but she didn’t make me put it under the seat in front of me (this losing the extra leg room we paid for), so I put it in a bin behind me. The plane was late, but the pilot made up most of the time, but then it took 55 minutes to get our luggage."

Pros: "Crew it was really nice"

Pros: "The overall flight and crew was great no complaints"
Cons: "Your purse shouldn’t be considered a carryon unless it’s larger then the average personal carryon and one complimentary beverage and snack on flights over 2 hours"

Pros: "The crew was great. In a good mood and accommodated my requests. (For complimentary water and a trading card to remember my trip)"
Cons: "Seat was awfully uncomfortable. I’m only a slim built 5’9” woman and my knees were indenting the next seatback. And the aisle was too busy for me but that could have been fixed with paying for a window. I do not recommend flying in these economy seats for any longer than 2.5 hours."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Paid for xtra for seat. The plane didn’t have the seat. Terribly cramped and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Originally the price.... before the up changes."
Cons: "20 min late departure. Extrememly uncomfortable seat. All the up charges."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "wished they had free snacks"

Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "Nickel and dime you for everything. Not even water was offered on the flight. The seats were the worst on any airline I have flown."

Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "Too many screaming children."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Seats hard & too close together. Charge for carry-on was ridiculously high."

Cons: "Unaware charges for luggage in overhead bin. Additional $135 for flight."

Pros: "This was a great flight for a great price. It was on time and all went smoothly."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. I'm 5'4", 135 pounds. The seats are just awkward. There is no way one could nap in one. This is less about their width and more about the angle at which one is forced to sit for hours on end. Overall, however, I've been very impressed with Frontier."

Cons: "I was given the wrong boarding pass and when I went back to the counter to correct that employee was extremely rude to me and on top of that I was charged carry on baggage fee."

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Seat space was too limited and did not allow seat to recline for comfort."

Cons: "We sat in the boarding area 20 minutes before take off, unaware they had already boarded everyone. No last-call by the boarding agent. We only found out when we saw the passenger boarding bridge retract. The customer service desk was antagonistic and at first offered to rebook us for $99, only changing her mind when she realized four other passengers had also missed the flight for the same reason. No offer to rebook us on another flight for that day."

Cons: "Expensive price for luggage"

Cons: "Never again"

Pros: "The crew welcomed us as we boarded and exited the plane."
Cons: "There was absolutely no leg room. I'm not a very tall person (5'7") and I felt cramped in my seat. The seats were very uncomfortable, rigid, and didn't recline. This will be my first and last time flying Frontier."

Pros: "Price of the flight."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was very uncomfortable. The seats are way too tiny, and I am not a large person.The flight crew played with the lighting too much. This was annoying since it was a red eye flight. The website is not user friendly. I thought I had reserved a seat but that was not the case when I got to the airport. I will probably stop flying with this airline even though I have flown with them many times in the past."

Cons: "They didn't transfer my baggage to my connecting flight even though I had an hour and a half layover. I had a meeting early the next morning and got in too late to go shopping. I ended up having to run around Target at 8 AM to buy an outfit for the day."

Pros: "Nothing!!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours to start. Airline refused to give a reason! Finally it was operations. Then first officer times out, another 2 hour delay and instead of being proactive and having a Captain standing by because he was heading to time out we had another delay. Frontier has terrible gate agents who don't care. My flight that was to arrive at 10:55 PM arrived at 3:30 AM so I lost a day of work, had to cancel a meeting and lost an entire day because of Frontier's operations? Sounds like a poorly run airline who touts being low cost who nickel and dimes me to death. I WILL NEVER come back."

Pros: "Seats uncomfortable."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable."

Pros: "I liked the crew and plane, smooth ride and easy security lines."
Cons: "Baggage pricing and seat choices were a bit steep. Cheaper flight with frontier didn't save me much at all after paying for baggage."

Cons: "More room and personal space. It was crammed."

Pros: "very warm staff"

Cons: "the crew on the red eye we took was not personable at all. the seats are extremely uncomfortable. the airline lost our luggage. we had over a 2 hour lay over and the luggage did not come, when we have been in layovers with less than 30 minutes and have not had an issue. everytime we called to follow up on our luggage, we got a different story, we were told it would arrive by 5 pm, then 9pm. didn't arrive until 1am."

Pros: "One particular flight attendant"

Pros: "Having less carry on luggage made loading a lot faster and easier to get on"
Cons: "Very little information about the mechanical,issues and length of the delay"

Pros: "The ticket price was good and for once I enjoyed the boarding process. Everyone was civil and boarded when their zone was called. Also, I had space in the overhead bin for my small carry on - that was a plus."
Cons: "Seats did not recline. For long flights a little creature comfort would be nice."

Pros: "They kept the lights down; it was a red-eye."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, you cannot lounge unless you pay an extra $50; the entire trip should have been only $50. Felt like I was a the Dollar General. Not as cheap as it should be due to uncomfortable seats and lounging."

Pros: "The Price was awesome"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "On the inbound flight: Sat on Tarmac at arrival airport for 20 minutes. No announcement or updates were given so PAX were left in the dark as to why there was a delay. On the outbound flight: Delay was an hour. Nothing was done as a token display of apology."

Pros: "Crew was great, flight was smooth for Denver."
Cons: "I used to love flying Frontier. However choosingvtoncharge for every little thing makes this a stressful rather than a relaxing trip experience. I will think long and hard before purchasing tickets with you again."

Pros: "Frontier is a get what you pay for airline, no frills."
Cons: "The prices could be more reasonable for the things you have to pay for - luggage, food, drinks."

Pros: "The price."
Cons: "The seats are very close together, with little padding and tiny tray tables. Obviously they are going for volume here and not comfort. You get charged for all luggage, whether carry on or checked and many of the seats cost extra, and so do snacks."

Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Seats don't recline unless you pay extra. Had no idea. I have chronic back pain and this made my flight miserable."

Pros: "The crew was excellent and the flight was on-time."

Cons: "You are charged extra for seats when checking in and you pay for carry ons as well. You also pay for drinks, ex. soft drinks, coffee, tea. You may get a great rate but then you are charged for everything else. Seats are not very comfortable and tray tables are the size of a mini iPad. No inflight movie."

Pros: "Text message notifications of flight delay, considering my flight was delayed multiple times, quickness of boarding, and short wait times at the ticket counter"
Cons: "The carry on baggage fee that I was informed of as I was boarding, causing delay to other passengers while other guests and myself are waiting to pay for a bag, or forced to throw items away. There is no reason for a carry on bag the size of a backpack to cost $30. I understand most airlines have started charging these fees now, but it is ridiculous to get to the airport and have to pay for every bag. I can buy a flight for $54 and end up paying twice that much just in baggage fees. Also why do the room in the seats seem to get smaller every time, no headrest, and I can barely fit a book on my tray table. A few money saving techniques male the flight that much less comfortable"

Pros: "The attendants were very kind and personable. The plane was clean."
Cons: "I paid $30 extra PER SEAT to get each family member a seat that reclined for our red-eye (Denver to Raleigh). Our row had extra leg room, but no ability to recline. My husband and boys were moved to reclining seats (see below). There was NO way to sleep on the $30 extra leg room seat. Ridiculous set up. The online seating chart NEEDS to be more specific and tell customers EXACTLY what kind of extras they are paying for - NOT JUST the price. Reclining seats cost just the same as the extra legroom seats, but doesn't differentiate which are which on the chart NOT GOOD. Also, with birthdates, the online seating didn't catch that my sons were too young to sit in the exit row. REALLY??"

Cons: "Was at boarding gate A36..which is what the big board said to be at..my ticket, as well. Waiting with 100+ other passengers at gate..watching Netflix out of boredom waiting on plane. 15 mins past departure time..I go to customer service and they tell me its MY FAULT I missed the plane that left 4 minutes prior because THEY changed the gate to A32.. There was no change on the board..but they said it was announced. It wasn't made clear to those of us who thought we were in the right gate waiting. I was able to fly out until the next morning..putting a lot of plans I and others had in serious jeopardy. Your customer service agents have MUCH to be desired..very rude..taking customers that walked up behind me while making me wait on them to get their sh*t together. I almost lost the only flight available out the next day because they were chatting amongst themselves about personal problems!!"

Pros: "There was nothing to like. Flight was over two hours late. Flight took longer than it was suppose to. Drinks and snacks were highly overpriced."
Cons: "Being very late."

Pros: "This was my first time flying with frontier. My experience was that which makes me not want to travel with them ever again. The tickets were cheap but then you are charged for bags and carry ons, but i did get a discounted price for doing that over the phone. However, I still had to argue with the girl at check in as she kept saying I still had to pay, until another girl saw my report and corrected her. No apology, and lots of additude. We boarded late, though there was no announcement. My flight was short, so comfort was not a big deal to me. But the worst part is when I went to claim my luggage it was broken, and they did not have a claims office, so I went to a lady at the check in and she was very helpful. Apparently there were 2 more cases in the same flight. She sincerely apologized, and filled out a damaged claims report; though I did not get a recite I did take a picture of it just in case. Hopefully they will reimburse me for my damaged bag before my next trip. But overall, the rudecoustomee service, hidden fees, and damaged luggage will prevent me from choosing or recommending this air line ever again."

Pros: "I liked the fact that the round trip airfare to Florida was low. Also, we arrived 40 minutes early to Trenton."
Cons: "I don't like having to pay $25 for a small checked bag. ($50 round trip)"

Pros: "The trip was okay overall. The plane was clean and we left and arrived on time. The price was good."
Cons: "The seats are pretty hard with little padding. Frontier charges for everything including choosing your seats in advance and carry on bags. But I suppose that is the consequence of low pricing. What was not acceptable is that they lost a bag en route. It was a bag we could have carried on, but since they charge more for carry ons than checked bags we checked it. As a result we could not ski the first day of a ski trip."

Cons: "The woman behind me put her feet next to my face. Her college aged daughter was so loud I could hear her over my head phones and she did not stop talking the entire flight home."

Pros: "The bag fees are irritating and seating is tight"

Cons: "It wasn't the flight although it very tight quarters. Also had to pay more for carry on baggage and also had to pay for the check in baggage therefore, I had to pay $85. more than I expected. I wanted to rent a car. I had never rented a car before. Expedia rented my car at 10 am and I didn't get to Orlando until 11 pm. They had already rented my car, so they charged for a bigger car. The ol bate and switch. I was in a pickle, so instead of paying $57. I had to pay $238. Therefore my inexpensive trip sure was very expensive."
