Pros: "Flight and crew were wonderful. Perfectly smooth landing!"

Pros: "Perfectly fine first class trip"
Cons: "Breakfast meal was awful"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Boarding was fast and efficient, nobody bumrushed."
Cons: "The non-reclining seat right next to the bathroom door opening should not exist. I was miserable there; I swear everyone on the plane made sure to take a dump on this <2 hour flight. Also none of the windows on any of these small planes line up with the actual positions of seats and it sucks."
Pros: "How friendly and easy it was to board. The pilots were very friendly and even gave my daughter wings. The crew made us very welcomed and put our booster in the closet till we landed."

Cons: "The staff is always ao disorganized, sometimes even unprofessional, they talk about other passengers, their shoes don’t match, when they did announcements on the PA they forgot what they were saying or they made mistakes and had to correct hen making it all very confusing. I fly often so I know the drill but those things must make the flight super uncomfortable to someone inexperienced."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment Nice crew"
Cons: "The Delta seat assignment and boarding process The flight was delayed"
Pros: "Courteous and professional staff"

Pros: "Wow! One of the passengers on the plane looked exactly like Anne Coulter!!!"
Pros: "I've always wanted to go to all five Manhattan boroughs in one day. Thanks to Delta, that happened."
Cons: "The plane broke down as we were about to take off. Delta rebooked everyone on to new flights because it was pretty obvious that plane was not going to be fixed in time. The crew did their best given the situation. The situation was absolute bs though - we had to take a cab to JFK for our new flight and do the whole security thing again and all that annoying stuff. Thanks for wasting 8 hours of my life, Delta."
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."
Cons: "Got in early"
Cons: "The wifi wasn't strong enough to download the app to watch movies on the plane."
Pros: "Crew was kind, entertainment and food were good"
Cons: "Seats are really tight"
Pros: "We were delayed one hour in Mexico city but when we were in flight the crew definetly made up for it. The crew served us a great meal with drinks of choice as quick as possible followed by a hot cup of coffee cookies and kept coming around to check if we needed any thing els. Way to turn things around Delta."

Cons: "According to the website and documentation a card holder is supposed to get the first bag free when using this card. I did not, so I will be cancelling the card."
Pros: "On time. Funny pilot"
Cons: "Ok. My wife and I are both disabled and use our own scooters to get around airports. My scooter broke down when I got off the plane. Toronto airport became a LOT longer pushing my scooter then. Fortunately CANADIANS GAVE ME A HAND TO GET THROUGH CUSTOMS, BAGGAGE CLAIM AND CAR RENTAL. Ok, what to do if something like this happens in America. Maybe to work with security staff cause I was in dire straights without the Canadians to help me. Thank them all. Alton Cason"
Pros: "Hospitable crew"
Cons: "Na, nothing special"
Cons: "1- 2 hour delay in Atlanta, 2- Missed my RJA international connection from JFK, 3- My luggage was not delivered to me by Delta in New York. 4- Had to spend one night in a NY hotel, and pay $185 for it, and I was told that Delta doesn't pay for the hotel because the delay was caused by New York Air Traffic Control. 5- After Delta re-booked me on Air France the next day, I made it to Amman, Jordan a day late without my luggage; which arrived another day late."

Pros: "Organized and smooth"
Pros: "Very fast boarding process."
Cons: "Once boarded we sat at the gate for probably 15-20 minutes with no explanation but different crew members were getting on and off. Plane was very hot the entire time. No airflow on such a small plane made it a very uncomfortable flight. Stewardess was impossible to understand and could barely make it through the required announcements. What words you could make out, she could barely pronounce them. Stewardess also served many people incorrectly."
Pros: "Friendly staff, on-time flights"
Pros: "It wasn't Spirit."
Cons: "Missed our connecting flight due to mechanical issues, but we were put on a later flight. Due to covid it's hard to get really good customer service. It would be nice if American had said well in advance that you need their app in order to connect to wifi on the plane."
Cons: "I wasn't able to board with bags so I had to change flight I paid class upgrade and never received refund"
Pros: "Crew was lazy. Poor service and on their phones the entire time."

Cons: "Lack of a crew delayed flight 4 + hours."
Pros: "The movie options they have"
Cons: "More comfortable seats & better food"

Pros: "The direct flight was great and made up for the rescheduled flight time in Memphis."
Cons: "Original Flight did not depart on time."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport and had already checked in and had m boarding passes. For some reason they could not find me when I went to check my bag. After 30 minutes they saw that my seat assignment had been changed and that is why my boarding passes that I had printed at home did not match what their computer showed. I booked this reservation in May and had a seat chosen fairly toward the front. I am 73 years old and the closer to the front I can be helps. When I finally got on the plane to my surprise my seat was the very last seat on the plane across from the restroom. People continued to leave the door open after using the restroom so had to get up and continue to close the door or look at the restroom the whole flight. There was never any explanation as to why they did this. As a result, being lst off the plane, I almost missed my connection as I had to go two terminals over for my connection. At my age I cannot run so I arrived as the last people were getting on the plane. I will never fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour late and we were not given an update until we started boarding. No alternatives were offered to those with tight connections."
Pros: "Flight attendant was dilligent"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Issues with times changing for departure"

Pros: "Crew was great. Ground personnel at philly was great and efficient"
Cons: "We waited for seven hours while our flight kept getting delayed. We finally switched to another flight and I don’t even know if our original flight ever got off the ground. Frustrating, irritating, disappointing. American Airlines was a huge disappointment"

Cons: "Rude crew"
Cons: "delayed on the plane"
Pros: "Got to my destination without any delays"

Cons: "No movie. I got "spoiled" on flight from Seattle to Phoenix with a movie perk. Was looking forward to another on the 2nd leg of our trip. I thought maybe it was an "American" thing. ... but apparently just got lucky on first leg."
Pros: "Timeliness of departure and quality customer service"
Pros: "I paid for extra leg room and I got it. The only thing I was in the row right behind first class they require you to put all of your carry-on above even a purse. I had never had that before but I guess that's common practice."

Pros: "Pleasant staff, clean passenger lounge and plane cabin"
Cons: "Wish standard seating allowed for more width, better way to avoid reclined seat in front"
Cons: "3 hours late. I could have driven home faster than this and saved $800. Once again, disappointed."
Cons: "Why are there no more blankets?!?! Or if there are - they are for First Class only. Ridiculous"
Cons: "The flight was so full of rude business men and the cabin crew was very rude. I didn't get a seat assignment until a few minutes before my flight. I was sandwiched between two men that took up all the leg and elbow room, because they thought they were superior. The plane was old and dirty."
Pros: "There was movie available"
Cons: "-There were no Blankets for coach even though I wasn't feeling good at all."
Cons: "American Airlines seemed to be out of sorts on both days of the trip. My connecting flight seat was not assigned until I got to my connecting airport. On the way back, we sat in the plane for over half an hour with no explanation. We then had to de-plane due to engine issues. The attendants at the counter were not that efficient with rescheduling itineraries, as they were often taking breaks, engaging in chit-chat with other workers, and answering personal phone calls during the process. On the connecting flight back, the ground crew "was not ready" for the plane and advised us to "hang out". This made for very little time in finding my connecting flight home (especially because the assigned gate was not even listed in the airport terminal). Not overly dramatic. Just a lot of small things that culminated in a very frustrating travel day. I will likely be avoiding American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "Crew was good but baggage claim took forever. The seating was not well arranged. The seats were very uncomfortable. The weight limit of the bags were unreasonable"

Pros: "I didn’t enjoy anything about this flight unfortunately it was my worst experience with an airline that I’ve ever had."
Cons: "I had checked my bag with was a personal bag and they said it fit inside the metal stand they had so when I proceeded to board another lady had told me I’d pay $50 or wouldn’t get on. She was very rude she let me friend with two bags go on without paying. I took four flights and never had this issue"
Cons: "Free cokes, water, and peanuts would be great."
Pros: "FLIGHT TIME"
Pros: "Plane was comfortable, crew was fine, but"
Cons: "Three hour delay? Unacceptable. Not entirely the airline’s fault, but still..3 hours. Not good."
Pros: "We had about a 45 minute weather delay but those things can't be helped. The Captain kept us informed and he flew like superman getting us through all that crazy wind coming into Las Vegas. The plane was new and clean, the crew was great. Love that wide aisle...it eliminates that sardine feeling!!"
Cons: "Check in."
Pros: "Definitely the price. Fairly quick boarding process, just a little congested. Decent priced drinks."

Cons: "Hsve to pay for drinks & snacks"
Pros: "Early out and early in."
Cons: "It was to uncomfortable to sit there in the plane for so long. I also noticed one of the flight attendants with the long brunette hair kept over looking me but would be in all the guys faces instead. Pretty sure it was a jelouse thing. The shorter brunette girl was really pleasant"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and smiled a lot. Non stop flight from easy and for me, convenient airports. I knew food cost extra so i brought my own."
Cons: "I knew my comfort would be cramped so that was expected. My only complaint was we couldn't understand the boarding instructions at the gate when they were calling zones. The microphone stunk! So because we couldn't understand,, people got in line who shouldn't have yet, and others didn't get in line that should have which seemed to really annoy some mouthy jerk in zone 5....who then had to turn around while boarding bc he forgot his phone, lol. Karma. So, that was my only entertainment and it was pretty great."
Pros: "Quick and very smooth flight, amazing flight attendants."
Cons: "Wish at least one drink/soda was free. Boarding line was so slow."
Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed by more than 2 hours, we were able to make it home."
Cons: "Started with constant delays. Flight ended up leaving around 8:30 when the flight was supposed to leave at 5:59. Once boarded there were no snacks, no liquor and only a few options to drink. The flight attendant was mumbling and kept on messing up what he was supposed to say the entire flight."
Pros: "Arrived on time after boarding was delayed. Great price/ you get what you pay for."
Cons: "No diaper changing station in any of the 3 bathrooms.flight attendants could have been friendlier"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Everything about Aligiant is horrible. Service, attitude, even the pilots can’t land smoothly. As a diabetic, they don’t even give you water withiit paying for it. Had my wallet in my checked bag and almost had a health issue."
Cons: "Ground personnel"
Cons: "Ground crew at ticket very slow and inefficient. Two groups missed their flight because of it."
Cons: "baggage staff was super rude. She told me I am the last passenger on the plane which wasn't true. She made me pay $50 because of little overweight. I could easily redistribute the weight among my bags if she gave me little chance. I was a single mom with two kids (3 months and 3 years old) had to pay a fine which I can't afford. Thanks for giving me the chance to express my feelings."
Pros: "Nonstop on time and as expected"
Pros: "Priority check-in and boarding were pleasant."
Cons: "Very tight seats, even for a small person. No recline. Screaming children throughout the cabin."
Pros: "The crew, from start to finish were great. From gate to gate The plane was nice and clean. The phone app was pretty well done also."
Cons: "I know you have to make a buck but damn. Peddling food, drink all the charges and the credit card offer during the flight."
Cons: "Lands in South Terminal of Austin’s airport, meaning you have to shuttle 8 miles to get to main terminal or long term parking. Unbelievable! Very inconvenient..."
Cons: "All of the hidden fees. I was initially charged more than $200 over the price I was quoted on Kayak.com and then had to pay an extra $45 to bring 1 carry-on each. I do not plan to use Kayak.com again for these reasons and will not recommend this site to anyone"
Pros: "the pilot"
Cons: "checking in , it seemed like no one knew what they were doing."
Pros: "Being on time and the crew"
Cons: "The chair is not reclining"
Pros: "Considering the fare was advertised between $350 and $700 with other carriers on Kayak, I took this one for $179, roundtrip, direct from LAX to Grand Junction."
Cons: "When the crew runs to get coffee in the terminal, make sure to do the same. I brought some snacks, but wish I had brought coffee. The man next to me kept creeping into my space which was incredibly annoying, but it was a relatively quick flight. Beats the two day drive from L.A. to Colorado."
Cons: "Did not check in or take this flight. Trip up to NJ was so bad I could not fly back. Tried to contact company and was told they could not assist in anyway. So lost ticket cost. Live and Learn. Do not fly this line."
Cons: "Not enough options and what was available was pricey."

Pros: "I like the flight. It was on time"
Pros: "Easy airport. Easy for rental return, going through security, and walking to the terminal. Quick loading time. Nice, clean plane with plenty of on-board crew to accomodate."
Cons: "Damage to checked baggage from Mesa to SGF. A quality, thick, hard-sided suitcase developed a crack in the side. Abnormal pressure would have had to be applied to cause this type of damage. Cheaper or soft-sided luggage would have experienced damage to the contents. Unfortunately, I did not check the luggage before leaving the airport to file a complaint."
Cons: "Leg space tight. Seat didn't recline. They said the maximum width on the under seat personal item is 7 inches but space is big enough for wider than that. I felt that was misleading."
Pros: "Direct flight much better not having to change planes."
Cons: "Everything was fine on this flight would be nice to have Wi-Fi on planes."
Pros: "It's like taking the public bus during rush hour. Organized chaos. But I guess you literally get what you pay for so, yeah. The crew was awesome though. No qualms there."
Cons: "Disorganized boarding. Even the extra room seats are cramped. Bathrooms are a step up from a porta potty. DO NOT SIT NEAR THEM unless you plan on holding your breath the while flight."
Pros: "Nothing about it at all"
Cons: "I didn't like the turbalance on the plane I didn't like the service check in line Need more people helping in the airport"
Pros: "Very affordable."
Cons: "Seats are too close"
Cons: "Bought two tickets, I had to pay more to sit with my wife. Seats don't recline. Endless emails before the flight telling me to pay for my carry ons."
Pros: "The outbound leg went well except for the very uncomfortable seats that are thinly padded and do not recline. We left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "The return trip left five hours late due to a faulty plane. I appreciate not using a plane that was mechanically not working. I also appreciate that we did finally leave on the same day we were to leave. The replacement plane was as uncomfortable as the plane used in the first leg of my round trip."
Pros: "The from take off to landing was smooth"
Cons: "Have no dislikes"
Pros: "The flight was fast, and direct."
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Smooth travels"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and the seats were comfortable, which was my reason for upgrading to first class, I am tall with long legs, therefore leg room is a MUST for me...but the reurn flight from Memphis to Houston was HORRIBLE!!..PACKED FULL, NO leg room, NO A/C-seriously-Hot air and body odor!"
Cons: "The plane had no A/C!..it just circulated hot air mixed with stale body odor from previous flight!..no leg room and the flight was 100% full..CanadaAir regional jet..and the seats were all narrow, and we were in 1A, !B...totally disappointed!"
Pros: "Site confortebol"
Pros: "Crew was night"
Cons: "Mechanical delay, then no air conditioning on our side if the plane, missed connection, terrible customer service"

Pros: "Crew was great. The landing in Memphis was exceptionally smooth."
Cons: "The seat was ridiculously tight, and I am a very small person. There was no room for my carry on above the seat, and under the seat made it so there was no room for my legs. Also, we sat on the runway for an hour on the return flight before taking off."
Pros: "Cabin cleanliness is below average"
Cons: "Cabin service is average"
Pros: "I don’t believe I will be a United customer for much longer"
Cons: "I missed my flight due to not being able to get off the plane after landing Flight attendants did not care to help Gate agent was rude Customer service did not want to provide a hotel room because they said the reason I missed my flight is weather relate"
Pros: "Airbus 380 was comfortable and new which made for a decent flight."
Cons: "Lufthansa and United computer systems don't talk to one another. We had a leg of our journey from United. We could not purchase seats on the Lufthansa flights and could not even check in; therefore we ended up with seats that were not comfortable for us. Lufthansa messed up on our meals despite it being 'confirmed' (we checked with the service desk in Frankfurt). The in flight movies were ok; the touch screens are not sensitive enough and take lots of processing time."
Pros: "On time & courteous. & On board service was excellent"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "No movie anymore."
Pros: "Terminal was great, flight was great, crew was fruendly"
Cons: "No free movie on thos flight"

Pros: "Crew turned around plane and boarded earlier than scheduled. This was an attempt to avoid poor weather on trip to Chicago."
Cons: "Seats should not recline. It makes space horrible. The charge for checked baggage is without an improvement in overhead storage is ridiculous."
Pros: "Basic snack for a one hour flight."
Cons: "The WiFi wasn’t working. It kept trying to connect but never did."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "Scheduled to arrive in Honolulu @ 7p on 10/7 but won’t arrive until 10/6 @ 11:26a. My only daughter re-enlisted in the military and I was due to attend the ceremony but because of United Airlines that didn’t happen. So disappointed as she is also. Overall such a horrible experience!"
Pros: "Pilots had great skill and provided a very comfortable flight despite bad weather. Exceptionally smooth take off. The newer planes being introduced are very nice, too."
Cons: "I didn't realize how amazing the United Airlines app was. Shows all kinds of cool info on your flight and free media. I am now shocked st how ignorant people are to write complaints regarding delays due to weather. It's for your safety. Appreciate technology and respect Mother Nature fools."
Cons: "Cabin was freezing and flight attendant told us there was no way to control the heating the cooling to a comfortable temperature. It will continue to be too hot or too cold."
Cons: "I had flown from Honolulu to Denver arriving at 6:30 am this morning having paid $25 for a checked bag. So had to get luggage and turn right around to check-in for Denver to Cedar Rapids and pay another $25 with the same airline because I wasn't able to check all the way through! So I feel I was charged double"
Pros: "Left on time."
Pros: "Flight was on-time."
Cons: "I sat in section 4 in economy coach. The ticketing agents REQUIRED everyone in sections 4 and 5 in the back to check our bags, they gave us no choice! We then boarded the airplane to find over half of all the overhead bins empty! This is completely unacceptable to be separated from my carry-on luggage for no reason! There would have been plenty of room for our baggage! One more reason to never fly United again!"
Pros: "Bad attitude with check in agent at Memphis airport"
Pros: "From check In to arrival everyone was friendly and helpful. Enjoyedvthe flight."
Cons: "The seats are way too cramped"
Pros: "Attendants were cordial and efficient."
Cons: "Because I was seated in the rear near the engines, the announcement from crew were incomprehensible."
Cons: "Overall horrible experience round trip. Issues with the planes caused delays leaving and caused my flight home to be cancelled. Flew American home. Will never fly Intied again. EVER!"
Pros: "The newer express jets (4 seat rows) had more leg room for Economy seating! Free wifi and movies."
Pros: "We did not return on the flight.family illness. From San Francisco to Memphis was terrible."
Cons: "This was the smallest amount of space I have ever sat in on a plane. Totally ridiculous. To shink the amount of space for seating & ile space.. There are three seats per row when there should only be two"
Pros: "Courteous perdonality"
Cons: "The noisy children"
Pros: "I have food a low score as there basically was none. I was offered a glass of water. I paid $74 for an emergency exit seat, and while it gave extra legroom, the seat hardly reclined at all."
Cons: "Lack of food choices, but perhaps not atypical for coach."
Pros: "We were diverted to Austin due to weather. We had to refuel and we were stuck on the Tarmac for over an hour. While all of this was miserable, the Crew stayed active answering questions. The Captain gave several updates and walked the aisle. They even let people off the plane who were trying to get to Austin. For a bad situation this crew made it so much better!"
Cons: "Weather, but what can you do about that?"
Pros: "very nice flight attendant. Very helpful to have my son and I sit together. Gave me a cup of coffee when i asked. very friendly as well."
Pros: "Even though we were delayed, I still made it to the island within the 9pm hour."
Cons: "Flight was slightly delayed, causing me to miss my connection"
Cons: "Your crew and service atrocious"
Pros: "The overall comfort and entertainment availabity."
Cons: "Apparently my designer shades drop out of my bag and inability to retrieve them. They were not turned into lost and found which means they were kept by their finder."
Pros: "They were on time."
Cons: "The cabin temperature never went below 80 degrees. Seats were very, very small. Especially when seated by a 300 lb person"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Seated at the back of the plane directly across from the bathroom. It was horrible the entire time. Never want to experience that again."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Bad comfort no entertainment and no power outlets"
Pros: "Pricing and services were excellent!! Top rated experience for me!"
Cons: "Nothing at all was lacking"
Cons: "Cancelled needed to be rerouted no reason ever given"
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, the crew was courteous."
Cons: "I want able to select my seat and ended up being separated from my sister. We had a 3 hr lay over due to problems with the plane. By the time we got to our destination we almost didn't get a rental car. There was some turbulence on the flight, which is expected. Landing was very rough, came in too fast and hit the breaks so hard I thought I was going to end up in the back of the seat in front of me."
Pros: "I like that all flights were ontime"
Cons: "The flight attendant was rude to passengers and my luggage was lost so I arrived at my destination with nothing!! I had to wait at the airport for 6hours for my luggage to be returned to me!"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to pilot and crew never showing up. Customer service didn't offer a hotel or any type of compensation for wasting time and money. Instead they put me on a flight another day which I incurred cost on parking, hotel, food and etc."
Cons: "Small plane, it was hot. Delayed, missed connecting flight."
Pros: "The price of the flight was affordable."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. Seats were uncomfortable & worn. Other airlines offer free wi-fo or entertainment. They did not have enough condiments for coffee. There was not good direction to passengers for boarding."
Pros: "Original price but they get you with add ins"
Cons: "Price flights inclusive and quit playing games with people"
Cons: "Waited too long for bags at baggage claim."
Pros: "The plane took off and landed"
Cons: "Out of the four frontier flights I’ve taken in the past six months each one has been delayed for some reason. First one was over an hour late and caused a majority to miss connecting flights. Today’s experience was not a whole lot different. First leg of the trip was behind schedule, second was delayed at the terminal for the “cleaning” of the aircraft. I will walk to my destination before ever flying with frontier again."
Pros: "3 hours delay"
Cons: "No referment"
Pros: "The price was cheap, but the cost was great."
Cons: "The very 1st words I heard out of the mouth from the very 1st frontier employee I met was "this is going to be a bad day". When they checked my bag they never said thank you, for us flying with frontier. When boarding, the "bad day" employee treated the customers as if they were cattle. Not one stewardess smile the entire flight. And when I asked to stretch after using the facilities only 1 time during the 4 hour flight, I was told (in a very sarcastic voice) "as long as you don't come into our area!" Followed by a faded whisper of "shiiiiiiit". All this, plus a 3 hour delay. What more could you ask for? Next time, I'll pay a little more for the customer service."
Pros: "Second flight in a row that had been delayed"
Cons: "Flight was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Seats, food, prices.."
Pros: "I got their safely"
Cons: "There was a child that kicked the back of my seat the entire time. The parent did nothings so I couldnt sleep. It was even noticeable on how hard the kicks were but no action to correct the child’s behavior. This was the worst flight ever because I felt my comfort was not a priority"
Pros: "The direct flight ."
Cons: "Waiting in the same line for bag drop off with people that did not use the Kiosk. The restrictions on times to check in and when the last bags could be dropped off. I prefer to arrive early and go through the process before most people arrive. There should be a bag drop off line separate from the general line. The trays on the plane were too small for me to work. The space between the rows was too restricted to open my lap top."
Pros: "The crew attempted to make the flight better by terribly singing Christmas songs, which only reminded me that I would miss my family Christmas due to late flight."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for over an hour. My foot is broken and I was jammed next to window. It was was swollen before we could even take off."
Pros: "The flight attendants were delightful. They were fun and had a great flight because of them."
Cons: "I know this is a budget airline but I felt I was on a broken down bus. The fees for bags are insane, especially during the holidays?"
Pros: "The gate agent in Memphis was so fun, so authentic and so efficient."
Cons: "No complimentary coffee! Come on.70"
Pros: "Really quick and personel great"
Pros: "I feel this airline does an excellent job boarding at the beginning and end of the flight."
Cons: "Bags took a long time to be delivered."
Pros: "Boarding, Flight departed on time, arrived early. These all went very well. Give me a flight the boards smoothly, leaves on time and arrives early all the time and that is the most I could ever hope for while traveling."
Cons: "Food, Entertainment and Comfort are no longer a factor and all airlines stink at these."
Pros: "I'm retired.I'll seriously consider driving. The whole airport/airline industry is in trouble."
Cons: "Very friendly"
Pros: "being on time"
Cons: "had to pay for snacks and pop, etc Free would be nicer."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early"
Cons: "Long wait for bags"
Pros: "Getting home"
Cons: "Waiting 5-6 extra hours getting home"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in DSM for an hour!!!"
Cons: "45 dollar for carry on made me feel like I was getting screwed!"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "It was a direct flight to Phoenix from Des Moines and a good price."
Cons: "The boarding area was moved. No one was at the new gate to tell us we were at the right place. The monitor was not updated also so we would know we were at the right gate. I did not realize that not even a free beverage was provided on this over 3 hour flight. Everything had an extra charge."
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "All the EXTRA fees. Will likely fly other airlines moving forward. SUPER NARROW SEATS! No wifi."
Pros: "The price is extremely attractive and Frontier was non stop! Personal carry on item is free and the size was really generous. PLUS they have an excellent credit card rewards program!"
Cons: "I wasn't expecting the seats to not recline at all unless you purchase a stretch seat. I had the assumption they would still recline the typical amount. I don't like that you have to pay for your seat choice after the flight is already paid for."
Pros: "It was better than driving."
Cons: "They don't even offer water. They have this jacked up system where you pay more for a carry on than checking a bag. The flight was late. We had to wait in the tarmac in Denver. Bush league airline."
Cons: "Sitting on tarmac for hour and a half with no time of getting off rhe plane os inhumane treatment."
Cons: "Hidden Fees, thankfully we could afford the extra $20/seat. On the first leg of the flight it was 100 degrees in the cabin, and there were NO beverages available at all. We were told there would be a 5 minute wait on the tarmac before unloading...we've been here for 45 minutes with no end in sight."
Pros: "extra fee for all baggage"
Cons: "Replacement flights would have required us to lose two days and spend the night in Denver - not our destination"
Pros: "Cheap and fast."
Cons: "No drinks or snacks (unless you pay quite a bit), seats had minimal padding. If you want to choose a seat you have to pay. If you want to bring a carryon you have to pay."
Pros: "We made it safely to our destination."
Cons: "We made it safely to our destination, but the Memphis airport TSA performed like the lower level bugs they are. The flight was overcrowded. Took an hour and a half to get our luggage."
Pros: "It was cheap, but you quickly find out why because they charge you for every little thing"
Cons: "My connecting flight was delayed 3 hours. Flight attendants were rude. They had nothing on the carts because they forgot to stash them. They charge for a anything other than water. Seats don't recline."
Cons: "Being charged for carry on!"
Pros: "I arrived at my destination safely."
Cons: "1. Charged me for baggage, carry on, and seat assignment. Seriously?! 2. Flight was over an hour late. 3. No TSA Pre-Check (I get it EVERY time I fly Delta) I have Silver Medallion status on Delta but when I needed an inexpensive one-way flight to Des Moines, Frontier had a great price so I thought. I bought the ticket but then when checking in for the flight online, the expenses started mounting fast. Delta never charges me for 1 checked bag and I can bring 2 carry-one for free. I never pay for more legroom either. Not the case on Frontier. By the time you nickel and dimed me to death I could have saved time, money, and aggravation by staying on Delta. Thanks for the lesson though. I've flown United, American and Delta almost exclusively over the past 20 years and I have always considered all airlines were basically the same. You proved that theory wrong."
Pros: "Visiting with them"
Cons: "Waiting 3 hours"
Cons: "how late every flight was. I guess this is what you expect when flying frontier"
Pros: "Easy going flight"
Cons: "Spacing of seating"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "After reading some reviews I was nervous about flying frontier but everything was perfect!"
Pros: "Flight staff were wonderful about making up time and doing what they could to make things better"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour due to traffic control and the airline wouldn't give us an estimation of when we would leave - I understand that it was up to traffic control but having flown I knew it would easily be an extra hour since the last flight hadn't made it to the gate. Once we arrived we learned only four bags made it for the entire flight. Overall it was a cheap flight but you had to pay handsomely for bags and food/beverages"
Pros: "Clean plane, fine crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed 50 minutes. 3 gate changes. The last one without text notification"
Cons: "Flight was delayed at the gate and no one made an announcement until after the origiNal departure time had already passed and people began inquiring. Then they just called all zones so the boarding line was a mess."
Cons: "Traveling with a child is trying enough, not to mention a delayed flight too Denver and then on the way back. Poor communication from staff letting the restless passengers know what was going on .... flight attendants were not friendly, didn't even acknowledge our child. The seat back trays were awful and poorly designed."
Cons: "Both flying out and my return flight were inconveniently off schedule. Logistics seems to be a nightmare for you guys. On the way out, we spent about an hour just waiting in the plane after landing, waiting for an open gate. THere were several other Frontier planes waiting on the tarmack as well -all of us stuck in limbo. Flying out, our flight was an hour behind schedule for a seemingly similar problem, the incoming plane had to wait for ever on the tarmack, and by the time they were finally let off the plane, and the plane cleaned and prepped, we were an hour behind. Very frustrating."
Cons: "Lost our luggage. Lied about being able to track it. Never have anyone in luggage lost cubicle except when a plane is deboarding. Very disappointed. Came from Memphis thru Atlanta and on to SLC on same plane Luggage was removed in Atlanta. Not just mine but 10 others!!! Someone does not use their brain!"
