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: "Had to buy another ticket"

Pros: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "Customer service was excellent. Smooth flight. Early."
Cons: "In Charlotte the kiosks were not acting right. The agents were still exceptional but you could tell they were frustrated"

Pros: "Staff on the plane was pleasant."
Cons: "When I checked in I wasn't given a seat assignment. I had to wait until I got to the gate."

Pros: "Ok boarding, ok service, ok flight"
Cons: "We were delayed for about 1hr without any explanation or apology. Thank goodness i didn't have a connecting flight."

Cons: "Flight was delayed arriving, connecting flight was in a completely different terminal = they didn't wait for us and auto booked us on a flight out the next morning. We requested our bags and drove home instead. Horrible."

Cons: "We missed our connection because of American Airlines incompetence. That being said the flight itself was ok."

Cons: "Could not read paper when passenger in front reclined seat. No space between rows."

Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"

Pros: "Seat were larger and comfortable"
Cons: "AB 320-200 flight for +5 hours and no entertainment. Nothing on the flight. Could not pre-board on line, so instead of a zone 2 loading sequence we got zone 4. as a person who flies to Europe 4-5 times a year I do not enjoy getting on a plane in the Zone 4-5 sequencing."

Pros: "Power outlets and WiFi"
Cons: "Too crowded"

Cons: "Despite paying 5 months in advance, couldn't check in online or reserve seats without paying extra. AA customer service told me there were no more "complimentary " seats!! Very tight legroom in cabin."

Pros: "Boarding was swift. Gate staff was friendly."
Cons: "Phone charging stations at gate were down at every gate in the terminal. We waited nearly 45 minutes on the plane at the gate for a "flight attendant that is going to hitch a ride to make a flight from San Diego to Charlotte." This was obnoxious! We waited for almost as long as the flight was scheduled to take. Poor form."

Cons: "Took my bag for no reason, I flew there with it."

Cons: "just like above + I had previously requested a vegan meal that had been confirmed and I was presented a "dish" of pasta loaded with cheese and was told that that was vegan ... 9 hours flight with no food The sound outlet on my seat was broken and, again, no entertainment for the entire flight"

Cons: "Missed Connection."

Cons: "3 hours late. I could have driven home faster than this and saved $800. Once again, disappointed."

Pros: "Great service!"

Pros: "The attention from the staff during the flight,was excellent."
Cons: "I'd didn't like that we'd had to pay 50 dollars for a medium size luggage,when other passengers have,slightly smaller suitcase,a carry on a lap top or big purse."

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: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Being charged for everything. Wifi was free for my sister on Delta."

Cons: "The stewardesses were gossiping in the back of the plane and we could all hear their complaints about the new uniform policy. They did not seem very happy to be there and there was no in flight entertainment. A total bummer."

Cons: "AA canceled my flight my kids who live 4 hours away from San Diego drove that distance to pick me up yesterday, we got a hotel room for the canceled flight but they ended up paying $200 for the night. AA did not let us know thr flight was canceled until late last night."

Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "SEATS IN FIRST CLASS WERE EXCELLENT WITH MANY PERKS."
Cons: "DELAYS IN BOARDING. Almost 2hrs"

Cons: "It did not happen! Had to taxi to Austin!"

Cons: "No power at JFK. Customs and baggage claim a nightmare. After a tiring international flight, 4 hours in airport find out my flight is canceled. Miss a day of work because can't get flight until following day. No airline offer of food or hotel accommodation."

Cons: "1 hour late. And when the pilot made announcements during the movie it would not pause. We missed parts of the movie. It was annoying."

Pros: "Quick flight, stewardesses still offered complimentary drinks, a/c worked well."

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

Pros: "Aircraft was safe, clean and good media selection with power-outlets for mobile device. Good updates from the pilot and crew."
Cons: "No free wifi. Crew was late which delayed the flight. No Admirals Club access for AMX Plat card holders."

Pros: "My husband and I were traveling together to Dallas, and we were unable to sit together-The ticketing agent was very rude when we asked if she could find us seats that were together. She said, "We could ask someone on the flight to switch with us". We paid $738.00 total for both tickets to Dallas, and found it very hard to believe that we could not get seats that were next to each other. We have had this same situation on other airlines, and they were very accommodating to our needs."

Pros: "The staff were professional about the situation. Flight attendants were nice, courteous and the complimentary drinks were good. It was a good flight despite all the changes... but who likes their flight changed anyway."
Cons: "flight was delayed. standing there and they said our plane was there but didn't know what gate. our gate was a35 then changed to a28 but then delayed 1 hour, then 2 hours. So overall, it was switching back and forth then changed the time from 1830 to now a 2000 departure."

Pros: "Fast shuttle to our hotel"
Cons: "Heat"

Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Flight was canceled... apparently they won't be able to get me home until 24 hours later than I was scheduled to get there. Standing in line 5 hours later still waiting for vouchers. My bags already went to san diego. Customer service has been confrontational. Terrible all the way around."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "HORRIBLE!!!!"

Pros: "The crew at least made an attempt to be friendly"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable the flight was delayed, and most importantly I booked my flight for san Francisco (sfo) and got sent to san Diego and had to book a $130 bus ticket and spend 14 hours on a bus."

Cons: "Wish I had a movie to watch"

Pros: "On time & courteous. & On board service was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "No complementary food. Old plane, no great entertainment options (should also have subtitles for hard of hearing). Terminal boarding area was too cold."

Pros: "Boarding was very easy , no long line , trip was on time ."

Pros: "Everything ran as expected"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The crew no food no pillow no blanket"

Pros: "I liked temperature!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 3 times which led me to being 1.5 hours late to my meeting. We weren't told there was going to be a delay until we lined up to start boarding!"

Pros: "Still deciding"
Cons: "All flights were late."

Pros: "Liked how I booked this flight less than 24 hours before departure. Had no problems and everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Turbulence but no one can help that."

Pros: "Unhappy first class passengers! Flight attendant decided it was better to have the first class passengers have restroom privileges and announce to the whole plane that they would have to wait until the service cart finished its path down the aisle."
Cons: "Flying has become a product of what are you willing to pay for! Baggage costs, seat costs, food costs. It's always changing I guess that's good!"

Pros: "That I got to my destination safely."
Cons: "On a flight for over 5 hours and I needed to pay to watch TV, just not right, and a small bag of spicy pretzels w/a small cup of soda (mostly ice) to top it off."

Pros: "Price was the biggest hit with me. The service and attitude of the crew was super."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was super nice."
Cons: "I had to check my carry on because there wasn't room inside the plane."

Pros: "Flight not full so with empty seat beside me I had lots of room to sprawl!"
Cons: "I still think it's wrong for airlines to charge for food so I didn't buy any. Couldn't get United app to work so no in-flight entertainment except what I brought."

Pros: "Boarded the plane at regular time but then had to get off because our pilots were switched to another plane. We had to then get off the plane and wait 2 hours for our next crew of pilots. It was a frustrating trip."

Pros: "outstanding service from the flight crew - makes me very happy to fly United comfortable seating and in-flight options clean, efficient gate made for a pleasant boarding experience"
Cons: "folks in economy that stuffed their items in business class which made getting my items extraordinarily difficult. Flight attendants should be monitoring this as it defeats the purpose of flying exclusively on United and premier status, which includes the benefit of getting off of the plane quickly upon arrival. whoever thought the ratio of eggs to oatmeal meals is completely off base. At least 7 more passengers would have preferred eggs, but were told there were no more to be offered. intercom is way too loud, esp. if you have earbuds in - we can hear you through the earbuds, esp. when plugged into the console when we'rer watching movies"

Pros: "I got to have a whole can of juice not just a small glass, yes, thank you."

Cons: "When I arrived at the airport united only had two check in lines open. One for my flight and one for other. I was barely able to check my bags and get my boarding pass before they closed it. Flight crew was pushy and rude."

Pros: "I was short."
Cons: "Plane was late arriving and had to chance plans at final destination for pick up."

Cons: "I choose this airlines hoping that I can get to my destination on time but my flight been cancelled, I beg that I can be put on the next flight, but unfortunately they didn't . need to be there from dec. 28 to jan 4. this there another way? can i change planes?"

Cons: "My 6:50 am flight was canceled at 11:40 pm the night before. Spent an hour and 15 minutes trying to talk to costumer service before I gave up since it was 1:30 am. Got put on a standby list for a flight and the flight was 5.5 hours delayed. Finally left SFO to San at 2 pm after being at the airport since 7am. Was supposed to originally be there by 8:30am but had to use my PTO since I missed the whole day of work."

Pros: "Service was fine, friendly flight attendances."
Cons: "Movies were not on demand, you had to wait until they would start. Then, you would be missing more than one, or watch not from the beginning."

Cons: "My flight was delayed an hour and we sat at the gate with no explanation why for over 20 minutes."

Pros: "The flight attendant was fabulous."
Cons: "The seats are too small for me but that's my fault for being very overweight."

Pros: "The flight nice to relax & chill after a stressful day. Snacks were ample in size having to pay for them. Free soft drinks & water throughout the flight was a nice touch. Gave you the can & an extra sitting towards the back of the plane. Nice touch."
Cons: "Dirty outside window."

Pros: "Flexible flight and schedule is on time. Usually I taken United for my traveling ."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Staff were polite. Flight was totally uneventful (just how we like them)."
Cons: "We were all required to check our carry-on bags as we boarded as there was apparently no more space in the plane, though once on board, there was space in the overhead storage - I think they did it because it was expedient for them to have us do so. I didn't eat any food so can't really comment on it (gave it "okay" but don't rely on that). The screen for my seat didn't work - no big deal on a short flight but there you go."

Cons: "No snacks, only beverages and wifi wasn't included in ticket price."

Pros: "Not bad just not good."

Pros: "Boarding was extremely slow. Not enough overhead space left which required almost all of group 5 to check bags. Flight attendants were not very attentive. Seats were thinly padded."

Cons: "No TV screens"

Cons: "Broken seats caused delays. Older aircraft needed TLC."

Cons: "Didn't get to get on your flight due to your error"

Pros: "Everything. This flight had more space and staff were excellent. No delays and left on time."

Pros: "nothing to like when the flight was cancelled."
Cons: "United Airlines cancelled flight, had to reschedule to next day. It did the similar thing on the initial SAN to LAX flight by delaying the flight and make me miss the connecting flight out of LAX. Overall the worst experience ever."

Cons: "Delays, lost flight, no refunds"

Pros: "My flight ended up getting cancelled due to weather but United put me up in a hotel and gave me food vouchers and profusely apologized even though the situation was out their control. I'm very appreciate that they helped me out and took care of me so well."

Pros: "Comfort. Cabin crew polite and friendly."
Cons: "Late leaving Denver"

Pros: "Getting to San Diego."
Cons: "The huge lines and almost missed my flight due to Homeland Security."

Cons: "Seating sucks."

Cons: "Flight diverted to LAX then stuck on tarmac for 2.5 hours waiting for decision. Then waited for bus to terminal. Then waited 45 minutes for baggage to unload. Then put on a charter bus to San Diego. When arrived at SAN had to wait 45 min for a cab because United didn't let the cab companies know that 250 people would be arriving at 2:30AM. So instead of arriving at 9PM we arrived in the middle of the night with horrible service all around."

Pros: "I liked that we made it home safely."
Cons: "Old cramped plane. Old magazines. Felt dirty."

Cons: "The flight was delayed and it was freezing. The TV monitors kept turning on and off and it was a night flight with the lights off, so it kept waking me up."

Cons: "I lost my opportunity to attend a work conference due to detours, mechanical issues, and poor planning. I also lost my $1000 grant that I would have received through the conference. All.i.have is a hurting back, empty stomach, and money lost on a terrible experience. Will not use United anytime soon. I wish I could change my return flight to another carrier"

Cons: "Flight never happened."

Pros: "It was all pretty bad."
Cons: "The baggage policy wasn’t enforced at all, so I realized I could have saved $40 and had my backpack under my seat as my personal item since most others did. They charge for seltzer water. No internet options. Male flight attendant made inappropriate jokes and the rest of the staff was rude and blunt. Will not fly this airline again."

Pros: "Inexpensive and convenient"

Pros: "on time, polite crew"
Cons: "tight, uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "Smooth flight, great service from flight attendants."
Cons: "Yelling crying kids"

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: "Great customer service checkin they were very kind and patient"
Cons: "the seats are not very big"

Pros: "STAFF WAS FRIENDLY"
Cons: "SEATS ARE VERY UNCOMFORTABLE"

Pros: "The flight was quicker than expected"
Cons: "There was a few bugs crawling in the seat in front of me onto my food tray"

Cons: "No food"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Canceled my flight and my buddies flight when no other airlines did. Had poor customer service. Made me spend 1500 in one way flights"

Pros: "I loved how welcoming crew members were and how attentive they were. I also liked that when checking in the bag crew was very nice and tried to help and resolve any issues there were. They were professional and helpful. The trip was smooth and according to time."
Cons: "There was really nothing to complain about. Seat were a little uncomfortable, but when speaking to regular flyers they mentioned how flying is not very comfortable in any airline."

Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. To many little charges; i.e. Snack drinks, baggage going and coming, seat selection. I would consider taking another airline and paying a higher price. Faulty/broken arm rest. Flight attendants slightly rude/short with passengers. Initially, the flight was cheaper but ended up being the same cost as every other airline once all the additional charges were added. What I thought was a positive for this airline quickly became a negative outcome."

Cons: "Replacement flights would have required us to lose two days and spend the night in Denver - not our destination"

Cons: "Seats are tiny, all in flight services are for charge. However, my main complaint lies with their horrible customer service. Our flight was delaid, ultimately cancelled, and no one from the frontier staff informed us of the change, why it was cancelled, or when we would be rebooked."

Pros: "Good Fly, nice atention and good landing"
Cons: "the seats do not recline"

Pros: "The flight itself was OK considering the price."
Cons: "My luggage (and those of a few other passengers) did not arrive with me and I spent one hour for bagage claim. There was no clear reason for that: it was a direct flight and the luggage was registered two hour before the departure. However the luggage was finally delivered to my hotel the next morning."

Pros: "I liked who I sat next to."
Cons: "We had to pay for our carry on, our phones wouldn't scan for the ticket, lines were long, I had to run all the way back to print our tickets out, women working outside of the gate were so rude, no tv, thin and uncomfortable seats, just overall disappointing."

Pros: "Check in was done quickly"

Pros: "excellent service"

Cons: "My flight never happened. I was supposed to fly on a Thursday, but because I was passing through Denver and a blizzard had closed the airport the DAY BEFORE, Frontier's flight was cancelled on Thursday. First I spend an hour and fifteen minutes on hold before finally giving up and calling back in the middle of the night. Then I waited fifteen minutes to speak to someone, who informed me that the earliest they could get me a flight would be TUESDAY. That is FOUR DAYS from my day of departure. My only options were a refund or a Tuesday flight. I asked to speak to a manager, but the employee refused to transfer me and eventually hung up on me. This was hands down the worst customer service experience I have ever had with an airline. I am still fighting for a refund, after I had to purchase a day-of flight with another airline to reach my destination. It required me to fly from a different airport and to a different airport, which was a nightmare for my other travel plans. Needless to say, I will never fly Frontier airlines again, and will never recommend them to anyone."

Pros: "Cheap fare."
Cons: "The remodeled interior puts the seats closer together from front to back and don't recline. That also limits the size of the tray table, which is tiny. Even as a tiny, short person, it was uncomfortable. For anyone of normal stature it would be torture. Paying for a "better" seat appears to provide very little if any added benefit, just keeps your party together. There is no entertainment, movies, music, or wifi so bring your battery pack charger. There is only expensive junk food to eat. My only option on my coast to coast flight was a red eye. So you arrived just wiped out. So if you do this to save money, in my overall assessment, it's just not worth it. I'll never do it again."

Pros: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "Excellent ticket prices! And we were so happy to finally have a direct flight from Memphis to Denver! The crew was so kind!!!"
Cons: "There was a Mother with 4 kids who were rather loud but that wasn't the airlines fault."

Pros: "overall it was good."
Cons: "I HATE the bag fees"

Pros: "Cheap if you have baggage."
Cons: "Cheap. No included snacks or drinks. No real tray table. Seats don't recline. Have to pay for all bags."

Pros: "Great company, good service, no complaints"
Cons: "You have to pay for food"

Pros: "The crew on the plane was funny and accommodating."
Cons: "The hidden fees Kayak did not disclose for Frontier: early check-in seat selection, carry-on, etc."

Cons: "The hidden and exorbitant baggage fees were equivalent to highway robbery. Frontier offers cheap airfares, only to then charges you more for your bags (including carry-ons) than for your ticket. There were no complimentary drinks or snacks, and the flight had the most turbulence I've ever experienced in my life, and the on-board crew was unfriendly and it felt like they could not wait for us to leave. I will never fly Frontier again"

Pros: "Flight was cancelled due to weather.. we understand. Leaving my 70 yr old mother at the gate for 8 hours...not cool.Tried calling airport, Frontier airlines...and besides giving my m,om a place on next flight at 6 30 am. No one and I mean no one at Frontier tried to help us get a safe place for my mom. Instead we got an international call center with a nice operator that did not understand us. You really need a call center in America, with real people that belong to our culture. Stop sending our customer service off our country...and for a change hire americans. By the way I need you to give my mom 5 free flights to Denver and to San Diego Round trip. Thanks!"

Cons: "Baggage fees were ridiculous and the seats were very uncomfortable. Take off and landings were very rough."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours, and they didn't even offer coffee or refreshment on the plane as compensation for our delay since we missed our dinner with our loved ones."

Pros: "Very nice crew. Smooth boarding - quick and efficient."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable."

Pros: "It got me from A-B"
Cons: "This airline has gone downhill. Charging for carry on luggage and seat selection. No entertainment or Wifi. uncomfortable seats that do not recline. No complimentary ANYTHING. People will say this is the future, but the future is bleak. I will most likely not fly this airline again."

Pros: "Super low rate - on time flight a day after a massive storm blanketed Denver with a foot of snow. I assume I have to pay for each breath I take on a Frontier flight so it's never a surprise. A la carte is fine with me when a 3,000 mile round trip is $81.- Nice attendant at luggage check-in moved me to a window seat which was appreciated."
Cons: "Frontiers website is the worst in the airline industry."

Pros: "The crew was great. We flew into some particularly bad weather and the cockpit crew did an excellent job landing the airplane. Some passengers even applauded once we were safely on the ground. The fair was - reasonable. The plane appeared to be new-ish and was pretty clean."
Cons: "A fee for EVERYTHING. I think I knew Frontier charged for everything but forgot when making my last minute reservation to see my ailing father. When it was time to check in on-line, it appeared every seat was either considered a premium seat or was not available. Middle seats and seats near the lav were considered premium. And the fee was either $20 or $35. I elected not to pay for a premium seat and took my chances that I would actually get a seat when I checked in at the counter. I believe they also charge for soda."

Cons: "No free soft drinks.."

Pros: "All the crew and do tier employees I interacted with where very friendly and curious! I had a broken leg and they made sure that I was taken care of"
Cons: "The seats we're very hard... No leg room at all (even in the stretch seating area. I was not offered any complimentary snacks or drinks."

Pros: "We had a flight attendant that yelled at passengers to "sit down! Right now!" When I asked if they could take my water cup they snapped at me and told me that I needed to wait. Waiting wasn't the problem, but aren't flight attendants supposed to be nice? No where does it say that military get free bags I wound up paying 70 this trip that could have been avoided."

Pros: "Flight was on time and staff were friendly."
Cons: "Was not aware that I would have to pay for baggage until trying to do online check-in. Very expensive...and who charges for a carry-on?? Tray tables were a joke - you couldn't fit anything on them. And you had to pay for drinks and snacks. Felt like I was being nickle and dimed which left a sour taste in my mouth."

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "AWFUL. I arrived at the airport 1 hour and 10 minutes before my flight. I attempted to check in at a kiosk, which failed and I was told to line up to see a clerk. I got in the ticketing/check-in line and was waiting for a while when a clerk asks if anyone was flying to San Diego and that they were in the wrong line. I was redirected to the additional services line, and when I finally saw the clerk, was told that I had missed the 45 minute check-in deadline. They refused to help me look for another flight, and was told my ticket was nonrefundable even though the misdirection was the airline's fault and their lack of communication. They should've posted signs if passengers on a specific flight needed to be in a specific line for check-in. Furthermore, their lack of willingness to rectify the situation was just a poor demonstration of customer service. I will definitely not be flying with Frontier ever again."

Cons: "I have flown on several different airlines thru out my lifetime but Frontier is the worst. All other airlines give you soda and coffee for free. Frontier charges you $1.99 with a credit card for a cup of coffee. I flew from DIA to San Diego Dec 23,2015 with a carry on bag. But coming Home from San Diego to DIA Dec 27.2015 my bag grew 2"inches longer and I was forced to pay a extra $45.00. It's was the same carry on bag I took to San Diego. I travel a lot and know many people all over the United States who travel and I would not ever return flying FRONTIER or would I recommend it to anyone else. P.S. I measure my carry one bag before I left Denver. Poor service!!!!!"

Cons: "Flight attendant put his dick in my face!!!"

Pros: "It was a short flight, the customer service rep waived the carry on charge for me."
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour. Food was EXTREMELY expensive. Non alcoholic drinks weren't free like most carriers. Seats didn't recline. There is a $40 carry on fee for luggage! $60 if you wait until you get to the gate. (The at gate rep was kind enough to waive the fee for me however) No on-flight entertainment. This plane was BASIC. No wifi, no tvs."

Pros: "Everything was great! Not sure why everyone else had so many issues : / As far as people being charged for carry on bags, they just didn't read all the details, but that's not the fault of the airlines. My crew was fun and helpful, although I didn't need anything. I would fly with Frontier again!"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient."
Cons: "The carry-on bag fees are complicated and punitive to weekend travelers."

Pros: "The long ride did not have any movies playing or the option to buy them. You charge for water and ice when that should be a courtesy."
Cons: "The long ride did not have any movies playing or the option to buy them. You charge for water and ice when that should be a courtesy."

Cons: "Need: better menu options, more comfortable seats, better sized tray tables, $30 for a carry-on is ridiculous"

Pros: "I liked that I landed safely to my destinations, but thats about it."
Cons: "1) The cost of the carry-on/checked bag. They do not notify you in any way that there are charges for either of these. There is no incentive to bring a carry-on as it is more expensive. The company also doesn't let you know you can get a discounted price if you check your bag online. 2) I wasn't ever sent a 24 hour check in, so I wasn't even offered the deal to check my bag online to get a discount 3) When I tweeted about my disappointment with the hidden baggage fee, I was rudely tweeted back "Correction, it's not that expensive, it's $30 if you check in early" which i was never offered. 4) In my 2 hour flight the attendants didn't even offer drinks until halfway through the flight. 5) I had difficulties making it to the airport an hour and a half before my flight but still made it within an hour. The lady that checked me in told me that I was late, they were going to charge me a fee, and they wouldn't hold the plane for me but i should try and make it there any way. She even wrote "don't hold" on my ticket. I thought i was going to be the last one on the plane the way she scolded me and I ended up being the first of 15 people after me that were running even later than me. Overall, this airline tries to make people feel like they are getting a great discount but after the fees and the rude customer service I am never flying this company again."

Pros: "Price, flight, Awesome!!!! Keep it up Frontier!!"
Cons: "That I can't always get that that price :)"
