Pros: "On time departure and smooth landing"
Cons: "More leg room. Stop nickel and dining passengers to appease investors. Delta is an evil corporation"

Pros: "Despite boarding late, and sitting on the tarmac for half an hour since we missed our take off time, and having to move passengers around to balance the weight on the plane, we made it home alive."
Cons: "We landed over half an hour late. Flight attendants needed to move passengers to balance the weight on the small plane, and asked for "volunteers." When there were none, the FA stood in the aisle and said we just weren't going to take off if nobody volunteered. They should have just MOVED people."

Pros: "Quick and on time. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Not many movie options."

Cons: "It was so late I missed my connection to sun valley flight. There was not another flight for 8 hrs!!! I think the sun valley flight should have waited for us. It was a matter of 10-15 min. Crew did not try to board people quickly to get us out of San Diego. 5 more minutes might have made a difference."

Cons: "Wish it would've had more movie options"

Pros: "Stewardess named "Mel.""

Pros: "Upgrade. Comfort. Gourmet Oatmeal Breakfast."
Cons: "Need more cooking shows (British Bakeoff would be fun) or something besides what has been there for too long."

Pros: "I appreciated the kindness of the staff at each of our stops. From beginning to end they were polite, helpful, and kind!"

Pros: "The flight crew were really nice and I was really comfortable in the Comfort+ section of the plane. It's a nice upgrade for Delta and hope the other airlines follow suit. Granted I had a very active infant, I didn't have any problems."

Cons: "Late taking off"

Cons: "Board the back of the plane first"

Pros: "Refer to my comments about flight from Chicago to Minneapolis."

Pros: "On board crew was helpful and polite considwring our circumstances."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3xs (non weather) they said we would miss our connection (I didn't think we would) THEY rebooked a later flight. Of course we landed in time for our original flight. They refused to let us back on our original flight. Put me in touch w/ the help desk who after talking in circles admitted it was their mistake but he had no authority to help. FINAlly & only because others missed their flight we were given the option to go. Crew misplaced our luggage and sent it on a flight we were never supposed to be on, and the bad experience with delays of hours on end continued coming home. (Mechanimal non weather) WE WILL NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN!"

Pros: "Leg room not as bad as general chatter."
Cons: "Seat width a problem. Center seat passenger used arm rest subject me to cart hits and hits from other passengers. Aisle seemed narrow. New Embracier airplane with 6 seats across."

Pros: "Decent food"
Cons: "Bad delay Flight attendants not friendly"

Pros: "Didn't know you could get complimentary meals anymore! The movie selection was awesome too!"
Cons: "Why is the complimentary Wi-Fi and messaging only for T-Mobile subscribers?"

Pros: "The staff communicated what was going on"
Cons: "Our plane had mechanical problems and never left. I thought they would bring another plane in for us, but they never did. After 8 hours of waiting, we decided to cancel our trip and go home."

Pros: "Snacks included bananas."
Cons: "Forced to gate check a bag that fit within the size constraints."

Pros: "The cinnamon cookies, the in-flight movie selection, and the helpful flight crew helped make this flight not as bad as it could have been."
Cons: "There was an infant in the seat directly behind me that chose to cry and scream through a large part of the flight. The mother of this child did not/was not able to keep the child from crying. Even with headphones on, this child's crying persisted to pierce the ears of every passenger within 5 rows of it."

Cons: "Boarding was ok however person sitting next to me, her seat was double booked. Luckily the other person also got Comfort seat."

Pros: "The crew, as always, were fantastic."
Cons: "Being delayed for hours because of bad weather 5 days ago is unfathomable. Delta needs to fix the IT scheduling issues causing the frequent delays."

Pros: "Ease in finding another connecting flight get to Miami when our connection was delayed."
Cons: "Time between connection should be 2+ hours"

Pros: "Read above"
Cons: "Read above"

Cons: "Flight from LAX to SAN was good once we got across the airport from Westjet terminal to the Delta terminal. LAX is never simple! Comfort on aircraft today is never comfortable unless you pay the extreme pricing of premium seating."

Cons: "Strangely cold!"

Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "The flight was delayed leaving and arriving, but that's the nature of the beast"

Pros: "I could have flown United direct for about the same price - but chose to fly Delta via Atlanta because, well, it's DELTA. Delta's first class is really first class - it's more than just a bigger seat .... the staff from the counter to the cabin crew all treat you like you're a valued first class customer. The experience of flying today is mostly like being shoved into a subway train in Japan with no genuine gratitude for my patronage. Not with Delta - they really do go above and beyond and it is not lost on me."

Pros: "Short flight so no food, just soda/pretzels. Left on time, arrived a little early. Delta staff were average."
Cons: "Other passengers who bring carry-ons that are too large, and airlines that refuse to enforce the size limits. This creates unnecessary boarding delays and stress and conflict among the passengers and Delta staff. Also, as usual, coach seating is mediocre at best as airlines try to cram more people into a smaller spaces."

Pros: "Delta used to be such a good quality airline, but lately, the fact that you have to pay for all checked luggage, small overhead compartments, and the over-selling of seats makes it feel cheap and less stable. I think the boarding process should start with people in the back of the airplane and fill the plane back to front. Boarding would be more efficient."

Pros: "Entertainment system was a plus"
Cons: "Boarding order. I was toward the back of the aircraft yet had to wait until last"

Pros: "The flight attendant did an outstanding job, along with the rest of the delta employees with the exception of the lady who checked my bag and personel over the phone."
Cons: "For being such a "big supporter of the armed forces", they sure give you a hard time when flying on their airline. My bag was 9 pounds over the allotted weight, which since I was on leave I typically pack pretty heavy. This is the first time on any airline I have ever been told this and this is the first time ever I had a delta employee attempt to charge me for baggage because I was not on official military orders, just holiday leave. This particular employee was very persistent in making me pay over $100 for that additional 9 pounds. Eventually she agreed to let me have my checked bag for no fee, yet she made me seem like such an inconvinience that I was 9 pounds over. I understand if it is a policy and by no means am I trying to play the poor me veteran deal, but the employees attitude towards me was insulting just as a person and that's why I am upset. Also trying to adjust a flight with delta is a complete nightmare. They have zero sympathy for anyone's situation. Will be the last time I fly delta."

Pros: "Fast, clean, friendly"
Cons: "Departed early, crew discussing that they want to be home."

Pros: "Flight from Narita to Kaoshiung was great, as usual, with JAL"
Cons: "Slept overnight in LA terminal, Bag sent to San Diego. Flight on American Airlines to Narita was cramped. Short stay in Narita, on to Kaoshiung via JAL, got to Kaoshiung and bag was/is still in San Diego. Hopefully, I'll never have to fly American Airlines again."

Cons: "Had to buy another ticket"

Pros: "Everything was great!"

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."

Pros: "The crew was very apologetic"
Cons: "The fact that we were an hour and 45 minutes late leaving. I know they say weather was the cause and not their control, but every time...yes, every time I fly American there's a delay. Every time I've flown United I arrive early."

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."

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."

Cons: "Delays and no communication on transfer options"

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."

Pros: "Great Workers, and Super nice staff."

Pros: "Great service!"

Pros: "Taking off and landing."
Cons: "Boarding was slow. Seating was cramped."

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: "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."

Cons: "Turbulence was horrible That there is no internet"

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

Cons: "The lady at baggage check-in was rude and persistent on not letting me board due to a slight fold in my passport. Other coworkers did not agree, and allowed me to proceed. She also spent 20 minutes in back searching for information while I waited and the line filled up. My luggage was also lost (the last to handle the luggage was this lady) and I needed to retrieve it 3 hours after my flight arrived."

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!"

Pros: "I really loved the process of boarding the flight. The flight attendants were very nice to all of the passengers including myself. The flight was really smooth where we left the airport on time and got to our destination early. The complimentary snacks were great as well."

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."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly."

Pros: "The pilot tried to make up lost time in the air."
Cons: "Due to regulations, our crew had to delay our flight 39 min. This was done the night before. There was no way we were going to make our connecting flight, but no one from United seemed to care. The crew from milwaukee to Houston was rude and unhelpful."

Cons: "No leg room"

Cons: "No bags to go to overhead bin"

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: "Love the free tv/movies with the United App. That was great!"

Pros: "Awesome flight , great crew, couldn't ask for better"

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: "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."

Pros: "The schedule was on time. Everyone was very helpful i and friendly. Good flight. Luggage was handled with care. Over all I enjoyed the flight."

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

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."

Pros: "It was our first time flying and everyone made it a great experience. They helped with all our questions and explained things and made it a nice experience for first time flyers"

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: "For one of the worst travel days of the year, United made up for it by placing me in a nice hotel for the night and giving me food vouchers."
Cons: "You seriously have no one to fly a plane? 3 hour delay due to no flight crew."

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

Pros: "Delays into and leaving Chicago are a consistent problem due to weather, but staff handles it well in the chance it does happen. My flights left early in the morning but I made it through security amd check-in abnormally fast every time and without hassle."
Cons: "While the flight was early, the one United staff member attempting to reroute flights was having issues due to the fact that our tickets had already been scanned. We waited maybe 45 minutes while the staff member attempted one set of tickets before we were actually able to re-board the plane. Unusual circumstances but a more streamlined way of helping reroute would take the stress off of lone employees."

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

Pros: "Travel time and perfect landing."
Cons: "Snacks"

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."

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: "San Diego"
Cons: "United airlines"

Cons: "The flight attendant fromr Cleveland Was a large girl and head wide hips every time she would walk up and down the aisle she would hit me & Other passengers"

Pros: "A little bit of turbulence but the crew handled it with ease! Very quick and easy flight. Actually arrived ahead of schedule on both legs."

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: "The price is great, and the staff are great too."
Cons: "Delays (it is what it is) but people tell me they’re notorious for delays. Bartender at airport told me they’re shocked if no delays from them occur. Lol... refreshments are not complimentary but I expected that. Would I fly frontier again? I probably would. Great price, staff, and wasn’t bad spacing in the seats. If you’re a tall person, won’t be comfortable."

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."

Pros: "I liked that I was able to select a seat."
Cons: "I did not like that I had to pay extra to select a seat, especially because the seat was not any more comfortable or spacious than the other seats on the plane. The staff rolled their eyes when customers requested service. I am never flying Frontier again."

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: "The price was cheap. Boarding was easy. Pilots were very nice."
Cons: "No entertainment. Have to pay for everything even just water which makes no sense. Crew did not want to be there and was not helpful. Took forever for people to get off much slower than other flights."

Pros: "Check in was done quickly"

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."

Cons: "While the fare for Frontier was reasonable; I chose them because of flight schedule. However, I couldn't believe how much more I had to pay than just the fare. Baggage fees for not only checked bag but carry-on plus the seat selection added $94 EACH WAY to my costs. That is unforgiving. I'm back to Southwest."

Pros: "Cheap cheap cheap! Hopped a flight to Vegas round-trip for $200. Made sure my personal item fit under the seat and avoided carry on fee. I'll tough out the small uncomfortable seats for three hours to save a couple hundred bucks! Do the research and before you fly and won't be disappointed."
Cons: "Seat are small and uncomfortable. You have to pay for ANY snacks and beverages in flight. Bring a book or make sure you have a game or movie uploaded before you board. No in flight entertainment whatsoever. Heck they don't even have any literature in the seat back other than the safety checklist."

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: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable!!! They had new thinner seats on my flight and you could feel little kids bumping or kicking your seat and every time they pulled down the little tray. The seats did not recline either. Very uncomfortable."

Pros: "We left on time and got in early."
Cons: "The seats are crazy narrow, you have to pay a lot extra to have any legroom at all, basically 18th century slave ship seating. Virtually all baggage is an up charge, even carry on, and they wouldn't even give you a bottle of water, that was like $2 or so. At the end of the day, a $105 ticket winds up costing $335"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Seats don't recline, they are hard as a rock, they are narrow and absolutely uncomfortable. Will never fly Frontier again and will recommend that no one else flys Frontier either."

Pros: "The flight was on time, smooth, friendly staff."
Cons: "You have to pay for a carry on, which is more than a checked bag, no complimentary food or beverage. There isn't much leg room, even for a short person as myself."

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: "Seats were very uncomfortable"

Cons: "Before my flight I went on the Frontier website to find the dimensions listed for an acceptable carry on in an effort to avoid checking a bag and paying luggage fees. I purchased said acceptably sized carry on bag only to find upon checking in for my flight that I would be charged $45! I was also informed that selecting my seat would bring a charge as well. The "great deal" I was led to believe I'd found by flying this airline was simply untrue. When all was said and done, I could have flown more comfortably and for less money on another airline. Will never choose Frontier again."

Cons: "The stewardess announced baggage would be at 3, so we followed signs to baggage claim #3 and waited over 1/2 hour to find out she should have said TERMINAL 3. We had to take a bus to that terminal, ended up 2 hours behind schedule."

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: "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: "Got me to my destination on time."
Cons: "Really? I must pay for everything even water or coffee? Airbus seating was cramped, Tray tables were so small that my cut could not securely sit on it with small children bumping the seat in front of me. Riding on a bus is more comfortable. After 3 hours my back was sore from the stiff seats."

Pros: "Was good, seats lacked comfort, everything else was great, thanks!"

Pros: "Efficient flight and boarding."
Cons: "I didn't know how to rate food and entertainment since I didn't use those services. Why must the Frontier flights always be late? It was delayed both out to LasVegas and back to Milwaukee. Also, we were told that the flight to Milwaukee was delayed but it NEVER showed on the departures board nor was the time changed at the gate. These seem to be simple adjustments to make for all passengers to see that there was a change but it was never done and led to a lot of confusion."

Cons: "I did not know you all do not provide complimentary beverages and snacks. I did not know I had to purchase a seat to sit in for check in and only one carry-on was allowed."

Pros: "I got an e-mail stating that my flight was on time, only to get to the airport to find out that there is a two hour delay that they knew about all day.... Prices for checked bags AND carry-ons are ridiculous, then they try to make you pay extra for your seat...want food or drink? That will be extra too! Then there was a long wait to deboard and to get my suitcase, which came out at the wrong carrousel. I only thought I got a good price on airfare! First and last time flying Frontier!!"
