Pros: "Crew was terrific! Nice folks. Courteous and professional"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat and ended up next to a bulkhead with no window. I can get claustrophobic so concerning and Frustrating! Also, unlike the trip to Minneapolis where the Wi-Fi worked great the Wi-Fi was awful on the return trip and made watching a movie challenging."

Pros: "Crew was terrific! Nice folks. Courteous and professional"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat and ended up next to a bulkhead with no window. I can get claustrophobic so concerning and Frustrating! Also, unlike the trip to Minneapolis where the Wi-Fi worked great the Wi-Fi was awful on the return trip and made watching a movie challenging."
Pros: "Most of the crew was very friendly. Good selection of entertainment options and decent food and beverage options."
Cons: "I had three short interactions with one of the female flight attendants who never made eye contact. The movie service frequently froze for 30-60 seconds at a time."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Love the local beer."
Pros: "Seats on Sun country are ok but I don’t expect much for the relatively inexpensive flight! Crew were very efficient, polite and attentive."
Cons: "Movie options"
Pros: "Flight attendant Susan was wonderful. Very friendly, professional, and helpful."
Cons: "More leg room, wider seats."
Cons: "They lost my bag!"
Cons: "The lady checking me in said I could pay $40.00 for carry on or $25.00 to check my carry on luggage. This did not happen in SFO. The upper bins were somewhat empty and the plane wasn’t full. I don’t understand why it was different on my way home. Since I had to check my carry on, I missed the airporter by five minutes and had to wait over an hour."
Pros: "Quick entry. One flight attendant was very friendly."
Cons: "First class upgrade was suspect. Seats were all visibly torn. Very busy ailes to bathrooms for first class. One flight attendant was a bit rude. Other attendant was very nice. But didn’t feel upgrade was at all worth the money. Also had to try three times online and twice in person for upgrade."
Cons: "Late departure by 1 hour. Then had to wait 55 minutes at the luggage pick up in SFO"
Cons: "We were fully boarded and then were delayed 1 hour without any explanation. They also had poor in flight service and very uncomfortable seats. No leg room at all and if the person put their seat back the 5 degrees it could move, there was no way to be comfortable because the seat in front presses against my knees."
Pros: "Crew excellent, very attentive"
Cons: "Marginal comfort, for an average sized man."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly enough. No carryon barggage fee, no checked baggage fee."
Cons: "The flight crew was friendly; however, they were never able to tell us which gate we were landing in. We ended up barely making our connection after the final call for boarding with the 45 minute delay from de-icing in MSP. It would have been nice to know the gate number before getting off the flight so that we knew where to go in the terminal. A complimentary snack or breakfast wasn't provided on the 4 hour flight, and they only came through once with the beverage service."
Pros: "The price of the tickets were great. They definitely "nickel and dime" but it was expected given they seem to be a budget airline. The crew at the terminal were nice and professional."
Cons: "Every flight was slow in taking off (delays aside). The crew on the plane never smiled and seemed annoyed to be serving us. It was unbearably hot on the flight for some reason and the air wasn't working very well."
Pros: "The plane was not full so seating was comfortable."
Cons: "Check in line was really long. But luckily the terminal was small so I still made it to my flight on time."
Pros: "Smoothest flight in years"
Pros: "No communication"
Cons: "Our flight was moved to three different gates and delayed, incrementally, by over 4 hours, without even an overhead announcement/update. I realize that while frustrating, delays are inevitable, but communication can go along way! Return flight was only delayed about 1.5 hrs."
Pros: "Same issues in JFK and sfo"
Cons: "Same issues"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Very good basic service."
Cons: "Jimmy John’s sandwich"
Pros: "We left and arrived on time. No bags got lost. Were happy with having our carry on luggage checked for free."
Cons: "Got hungry mid-flight (4hr trip). Would have purchased food but chose not to because options were poor and expensive."
Pros: "Easy boarding process, complimentary bag check (on full flights), multiple direct flight options available, affordable prices for round trip or one-way flights."
Cons: "Food/snacks are only available for purchase."
Cons: "My flight was canceled for unknown reasons."
Pros: "Didn't happen"

Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Dear didn't recline (I realize for safety)"
Cons: "Had to wait an hour from when we landed until we got our bags."
Pros: "A surprisingly good cheese burger ($5),cheerful crew, and on-time departure and arrival. Given my low expectations for American air travel, I was pleasantly surprised."
Cons: "As always, the seats are too small, the overheads too full, and the staff a bit harried. I really shouldn't fault the airline for any of that."
Pros: "It was good to break up coast to coast trip with a stop in Minneapolis, and 2nd leg both had fewer passengers, which equaled more comfort in coach."
Pros: "Crew friendlinesss"
Cons: "Boarding was confusing."
Cons: "When I checked in on the internet, there were no economy seats available. I had to pay $15 for a "preferred" seat, which was an aisle seat on row 7, near the front of the economy section. I was told by an employee that the only economy seats were the middle seats, that aisle and window seats were preferred seats. I was told the plane was full and they could not change my "preferred" seat although I did see empty seats on the plane after takeoff. Also bathroom facilities were poor - only two in the back for the entire economy seating. And the aisles were narrow."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew and on time departure and arrival during busy holiday travel time. Thank you!"
Cons: "Website to check in said no sears left except seats where had to pay additional $15-25 so had to get boarding pass at airport...at airport magically got seats that were showing as not available? Is this a scam to get people to pay more $?"
Pros: "Nothing, worst airline."
Cons: "Overall airplane is old, flight attendants are rude, poor beverage service. Just fly the big three; American, United or Delta."
Cons: "Upon arrival, we had to wait about 30 minutes waiting for a gate to be open so that we could deplane."
Pros: "had to sit in the row before exit row so my seat didn't recline, which was uncomfortable."
Pros: "cheap price. thats what's most important, right!?"
Cons: "pay for food only. make sure you bring some of your own snacks ok!? i did :D also the takeoff was late, but i mean it was because of the weather, not much the airline could do about that..."
Pros: "Flight was on time, and organize in boarding ."
Cons: "None, but actually could not so rating for food and entertainment, as this actually n/a"
Pros: "I like how the flight attendants came around twice to offer us drinks."
Cons: "There was an issue checking in online. I couldn't reserve my seats on the plane at home (I tried twice; once the day before my flight and on the way to the airport), and so I had to take extra time to go to the check in counter at the airport to get my boarding pass."
Pros: "Not too uncomfortable."
Cons: "They censor their films. We watched two comedies over our two flights, and both were obviously edited for content and language. Why? We paid to watch these and were never made aware we were not seeing the full film. I'll avoid this airline in the future because of this."
Pros: "Last minute trip to MN and back to Bay Area. Went for a funeral. Flew Sun country for the first time both ways. Best experience I've/we've had flying in a while. Thank you. We'll be back - especially if y'all go to the east coast."
Pros: "For only $15 more I upgraded to a seat with more space and was very comfortable. With the baggage fee only $20 (not $25 like other airlines), I was very happy with the affordable upgrade."
Cons: "Rude. Pushy. Bad even for a red-eye."
Pros: "Never flown Sun Country before and was impressed by the crew's efficiency and demeanor."
Cons: "Seats don't go back and you have to pay for the use of a movie entertainment center."
Pros: "Drinks were offered twice."
Cons: "No complimentary peanuts or pretzels."
Pros: "The computers went down the day before the flight and the phones said they were too busy try later. But the personal service at the airport was outstanding, which completely made up for the glitch. And the crew were extra friendly."
Pros: "EVERYTHING WAS NORMAL."
Cons: "THE SEATS SEEM BROKEN- THE PAD SLIDES AROUND. IS THERE A SOLUTION TO THAT CRAPY WIRE THAT HOLDS THE SEAT BACK POCKET CLOSED? IT HITS US TALL GUYS IN THE KNEES AND IS A TRUE DETRACTION EVERY TIME. THE SEAT PAD WAS SOOOO FLAT- NO CUSHION LEFT."
Pros: "Because I was unwilling to pay for seat selection, I was prepared to be separated from my husband and stuck in a middle seat. To my pleasant surprise, the agents put us in the same row by ourselves."
Cons: "Better directional signage in both the SFO and Las Vegas airports (arrivals). Las Vegas is a huge airport, requiring a tram to get to the passenger pick-up, even with directions it was confusing and not obvious. In SFO, half the plane walked halfway down the concourse in the wrong direction because of lack of signage and it looks like the right way to go. Drop Kiwi as a third-party for domestic flights, their customer service is clueless, handling charges absurd and flight requirements unnecessary."
Cons: "Seats are VERY uncomfortable. Staff is not really friendly. First time on Frontier, I will try to avoid it if I can"
Cons: "Website would not let me check in the day before or the morning or my flight. There was an error every time and I almost got to the end once. I could not change the time of my transportation and arrived 10 minutes past the check in deadline (an hour prior to the flight taking off). I was refused access to the flight and offered a flight 5 hours later. The staff was rude and not helpful. I had heard negative things about Frontier and now I know why."
Cons: "The crew personnel were rude enough to ask even a glass of water. The revolving belt at baggage claim area started so late. The ticket should include the laggage charges whether it is 100$ or 150 $. I faced so difficulty in paying the baggage charges because of non availability of credit card. As they don't accept cash. Kindly make it easy for passengers"
Cons: "They didn't know how to handle the unpleasant situation of having delay due to "the plane is having some problems and they will try to fix it asap before departure"."
Cons: "The seats are barely glorified lawn chairs, and the crew was extremely insensitive to the fact that the flight took off over 5 hours late and while most people were trying to sleep, they were loud, kept the lights on and were uapologetic that the flight was so ridiculously late. There were children and infants on that flight with exhausted parents who had to take off at 2am instead of 8:50pm. It was awful. Plus you have to pay for a carry on? Ridiculous. I never want to fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Plane was 2 hours late, no advance notice of the delay, and was on the hangar the entire time. No accommodations for delay and."
Pros: "Nice staff, just oblivious to everyone sleeping at 2am while they carried on and on with their chatty gossip."
Cons: "Baggage took almost an hour to arrive on both legs of my trip. We were delayed in SFO but due to a long planned maintenance there. Airline could have prepared better. No early boarding with my two year old, but only after all the elite and a whole zone 1 of people. Seats have big gaps that allow things to fall and people sneezing on you from behind. Loud crew with obnoxious lights on during a very delayed flight that became a red eye. Why pay more for seats near the loud crew who doesn't take in the fact that we're all tired. You want to sell food? Choose better items. My $3.99 coffee could at least have more than a powder non-dairy creamer. Flight price is so deceiving when you charge for everything on top of it, including where I sit. Lame, awful, corporate money grubbing mentality. I'll stick with southwest (I later learned they had had fewer options for once because they actually considered that a runway was closed)."
Cons: "4+ hour delay in Denver caused us to miss the last airport hotel shuttle and made us spend more on food and drinks in Denver. Extra money for a cab in SF. My 6 year old slept on the filthy airport carpet at the gate because at the seats had arm rests. Not even an apology from the airline."
Cons: "First I bought a ticket from Spirit Airlines SFO to MCO for 309$, then I saw charges from frontier Airline, frontier airlines bought a ticket for me too for 287$, when I was just watching checking the price. Then I compared the tickets, both the time, but from Frontier Airlines was cheaper then I stayed with frontier and cancel the other reservation from Spirit Airlines the next day I see frontier airlines also cancelled that reservation and I had to rebook another ticket for 496$, the price went up, then I had to pay 187$ extra, IT WAS A FRAUD JOB FROM FRONTIER AIRLINES, I can prove everything above with the receipts and the dates on it, the worse experience I had"
Cons: "Old/loud plane, uncomfortable non-reclinable seats, fees for everything = not worth it for a cross country flight. If your flight gets delayed due to weather issues you'll be wishing you had those standard amenities most other airlines provide."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled 5 hours before I was supposed to get to the airport. They could not get me on another flight. I had to spend an extra $400 for a last minute flight."
Cons: "The plane didn't have enough gas to make it to SFO so we stopped in Colorado Springs to re-fuel. Despite being several hours delayed the airline customer service offered no solutions or accommodations."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We never boarded and they held us for 14 hours saying the plane was "delayed". What did we get for sticking it out that long while watching them make crying tired children sleep on the dirty floor refusing to admit their plane was cancelled, where they would have had to give us all hotel rooms. Oh yeah what did we get? $200 vouchers for future frontier flights. Really ironic because no one stuck in that hellish situation will ever try to fly frontier again."
Cons: "The price was good, before you realized the price was a lie and they scam you by charging $45 to carry on or $40 to check a bag! That meant the overhead space was unused and they were just charging more just to be inconvenient. The plane was stripped barebones. The crew were rude, did not smile, and gave me attitude for hitting my elbow with the drink cart. They charge for even getting a soft drink. Nothing about the experience said "we're serving you." It's worse flying a more expensive airline because the rediculous bag fees make it just as expensive and even things that should be free like pleasant staff were lacking."
Pros: "Crew was nice despite the circumstances"
Cons: "Late takeoff. Sat in a hot aircraft for an hour. Small seats. No entertainment. Tiny tray led to my spilling a drink. Pilot sounded sketchy. Oh, and be aware you have to pay $35 for a carry on."
Cons: "I did not expect, after purchasing a ticket I would have to pay an additional fee for a seat. When ones buys an airline ticket they assume the seat is included. Additionally, just include the cost of carry on in the price of the ticket."
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "We arrived and had to wait 20 minutes for a gate. After making to the gate we went to baggage claim and waited 45 minutes because they did not know where our bags went. I missed my scheduled shuttle to Fort Collins due to the wait for my bags, it has ruined my whole day."
Cons: "Frontier charges extra for a seat upon check in and also for a carry on! Terrible scam!!!"
Pros: "Flight was direct and smooth. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats ever-and we paid an extra $45 per seat for extra legroom, hoping to be able to sleep-additional fees for everything, no beverage, snack or movie . Absolutely no frills. The seats are like molded plastic thrill ride seats with no padding. Awful."
Cons: "Arrived 45 minutes before flight, but attendant didn't accept my check in bag, and didn't let either of us proceed to the gate even though we both had checked in already."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I didnt like the fact that I couldn't talk to someone here in the United states for frontier. I didn't like that when I called customer service I was instructed to do the wrong thing and fill out the wrong form. And most of all I really hated that my flight was cancelled and my money put into a "shell credit" and when I went to re book the fight it cost 3 times the amount than I originally paid. Overall this has been a horrible experience and I will be tell everyone I know and even people I don't know via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and snap chat about my experience . Overall I feel your service and your service provider failed miserably."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Charging for the carry on and shipped bag was a very unpleasant surprise at check-in. The non-reclining seats were terribly uncomfortable. All of my flights were delayed for one reason or another. Charging for sodas was unexpected. I was very disappointed in this flight and I will never book a flight with Frontier again due to these negative experiences. There are many choices for airlines and Frontier really let me down."
Pros: "I liked the crew"
Cons: "The flight was stacked with hidden fees and charges after my purchase. We had to pay for seats - in addition to the ticket price?! We had to pay for carry-ons.. And their food and beverage service has a price tag attached to everything. "Surprise! Your $50 flight costs $150 by the time you actually arrive!" ..sneaky."
Cons: "1. They charge for every little thing. Each checked bag is $25.00 and each carry on is $35.00. They also charge you for a seat. So once you purchase your ticket, you then have to pay an additional fee to seat down. 2. The staff is unprofessional. Not only does everyone look sloppy, but the staff is comprised of individuals that don't care at all about customers and have been poorly trained. The quality is very low. 3. I was hit and then verbally abused by a gentlemen on the plane, they laughed and did nothing!!!!! 4. They only allow 15 bags on their plane! After 15, they will move your bags to a different plane without telling you. What kind of nonsense is that?!"
Pros: "The individual staff at Frontier were good, people working a job with systemic challenges they can't change. "We have been having problems with the ground crew" was the courteous response I got from the person at SFO who took my lost baggage complaint. He was not at all suprised that I didn't arive with my bag having checked in two hours early for an hour long flight."
Cons: "I made the trip for work to attend demanding class with no time to shop for the essentials I lost with my missing bag. I didn't like the first impression i gave wearing "preworn othes" to meet my professional peers. Thanks Frontier."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I'd rather hop to San Francisco than fly frontier. A 4 hour 7 minute delay is a different flight than I booked."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Another plane malfunction! Last time we flew Frontier we were stuck for 2 days in FL! Never was another plane brought in for us. Never was another flight to,Cleveland bumped so we could return home. At least you figured out that disaster and we were able to board a plane scheduled for Philadelphia, which bumped that passenger to a flight 3 hours later. And the stories of horror other passengers had last night...all about Frontier, one man previously had totally missed a cruise! This is not how to maintain nor run an airlines. I will not be giving Frintier another chance."
Cons: "I got a first email stating that it was an 1 hr delayed ! Then another 2 emails stating that it s on time ! When i called i got put on hold for 17 min !! Then sure enough the flight was 4 hrs delayed !!!!!"
Cons: "- Flights are even more cramped than normal - the trays barely hold the beverage cup - no in flight entertainment - bringing a carry-on costs money - my return flight was delayed hours in advance, but frontier still required passengers to be in the airport - updates were few and far between and provided no concrete information - after being in the airport for 5 hours they just cancelled the flight and forced us to wait in the ticket line to rebook the flight which was another couple hours from start to finish - frontier refused to give hotel vouchers to people with in-state licenses, even if they lived hours away - after finally arriving back home, there was no gate ready for us and we had to park and/or taxi for at least another half hour - in both directions there were unruly children (not babies) YELLING on the plane without any comments or effort to quiet them by the flight crew or their parents"
Cons: "The airline charges additional fees every steps for the trip, including seat selection, baggage fees. We will not book on this airline again."
Cons: "Long wait on tarmac at Denver - Frontier Airlines really down hill with fees for carry on and being able to pick your seat. Flying on Frontier is like riding on an old greyhound bus."
Pros: "Got me from point A to point B"
Cons: "Gate change at the last minute and the wrong destination city was displayed on the monitor for our flight, causing more confusion. Flight delay, as well"
Cons: "Seats don't recline, food tray very small, no free beverage except 1 cup water and most of all the unexpected 60 dollar charge for a CARRY-ON! Like the carry-on that easily fits in the over head space above and no one else charges for."
Cons: "Boarding - people who sit up front go first meaning that those that have seats in the back have to go in past people who are still in the aisles arranging themselves. I could not get a drink of water without paying. Is it really that esxpensive to give a coke and some peanuts??? Paying for seat selection means that some people get in the seats other peoiple want (like window seats) who don't want them. I tryly believe that Frontier is the nickel and diming airline. And I don't believe you had to wait for a gate and 11:30 at night."
Pros: "That they got me to my destination safely."
Cons: "This airline is a joke. Shame on me for booking late and choosing the cheapest ticket. BUT knowing what I now know, I would have selected the Delta flight for $80 more. Here's why: No TSA Pre-Check. This aspects alone is a deal breaker. Pay for carry-on bag AND IT COSTS $40. Pay for beverages, snacks. Seats don't recline - "pre-reclined for your maximum comfort." Whatever Tray table is metal and tiny. You couldn't even fit an iPad mini on it, let alone a lap top. So, I put my MacBook on my lap to work, but it's uncomfortable, MacBook slides off. You're hitting the person next to you with your elbows. AND I have to take off my jacket, to protect my MacBook against hitting the metal tray table, so I got cold. No internet. It's 2016. No internet. It's 2016. Never again."
Cons: "Getting charged 60 dollars at the gate to bring my bag onboard and not being told at booking online that the price would increase isn't cool. This was my first trip with Frontier and will be my last. I am a business traveler who spends roughly 80k a year on travel-- and I'll never fly frontier again"
Pros: "The price was cheap."
Cons: "It was unclear that you needed to pay a fee for a carry on bag with this airline."
Pros: "overall the aircraft and schedule was ok"
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive at our destination. It was an absolute nightmare to get it back!! I had to call the airline about 50 times, where most of the calls were not answered. I had to keep calling and following up. When the luggage did come they only delivered one of the 2 pieces. The calling marathon had to be resumed most of which went unanswered! We finally had to rely on the delivery company to provide alternate numbers where there was a possibility to get an answer. Absolute nightmare!!! Never never will I travel this airline."
Cons: "I was helping my mother - in - law check in and board - she needed wheel chair assistance. We were in line to drop off a bag that we had checked in online an hour before the flight. There were 5 people in the line with only 2 reps helping. Since I hadn't printed the boarding pass, I tried to print the pass at the self-help kiosks getting the message that I needed to see an agent. The cut-off for checked in baggage is 45 mins before the flight, however the reps were making no effort to expedite the service. In 15 mins they had helped 2 people making us the 3rd in line and the line had grown to an additional 5-6 people behind us. 45 mins before the flight they refused to take in any bags for checking - in. Since I was able to take the checked in bag with me, I asked that the agent print the boarding pass for my mother in law and call for wheel chair assistance. The agent called for wheel chair assistance but refused to print the boarding pass! The one thing that the ticketing / check in agent should be able to do is to print a boarding pass for a reservation that is fully paid. Because of this my mother in law had to miss her flight and we paid an additional $99 to get onto the next flight. I was so taken aback when the agent refused to print the boarding pass, that I did not even know how to convince her to do her job. This is probably the worst experience I have ever had with any airline!"
Pros: "The crew was exceptionally helpful on both segments."
Cons: "The seats were not comfy at all- no reclining whatsoever and had to prepay for every bag."
Cons: "Double charged for checked flight there and the way back $40 per person twice that's $200 I could've spent on a way better flight. Upgraded to the nicer seats which didn't lean back or do anything actually least amount of comfy"
Pros: "Low fare"
Cons: "No beverage service-not even free water, really? Having to pay even to suggest where you might sit. One gentleman had to pay for his carryon, even though it fit in the baggage size indicator."
Cons: "I felt like I was so cramped I could barely move, and because the seats didn't recline at all, not even a little, I couldn't try to sleep. Im not a very tall or fat person, so im not being unreasonable. The crew were very nice and highly professional, though."
Cons: "Just a super cheapo airline that offered an "inexpensive" ticket that then they charge you for everything else, with no warning about the hidden fees. Like baggage: you can't take on more than one free, tiny check-in without paying at least $35, if not much more. Uncomfortable seats. The flight was 3 hours late when a neighbor flight to the same city (on Southwest) took off on time, and so they gave us this lame $10 voucher to appease us, and yet we couldn't use it anywhere, just pissing you off more. They wouldn't accept it at the airport or on the plane, so, what the heck?"
Pros: "this plane was way better than the last Frontier aircraft, the seats were leather and had head rests and they had TVs."
Cons: "TVs cost money."
Cons: "I didn't find out about their charge for seats until I checked in to get seat assignments, and also their carry-on charge, plus charging for the normal complimentary drinks. I will more than likely not use Frontier again. Very misleading"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "The fact that you have to pay for a carry-on needs to be made more clear. Other reviews state the same thing. Not happy about paying an additional $30 for a carry-on."
Pros: "When you add up the extra fees for carry on bags and reserving ordinary seats the bargain fares slip away. That being said, Frontier is a decent option if you know what you are getting into. Travel (extremely) light and decline to "grab a seat" and you can save some $$$."
Pros: "I really am not the type to write bad reviews, but I couldnt believe how unprofessional the crew was. They were extremely loud talking about their own personal issues with each other, barely made eye contact with any guests, and when I asked for a cup of water, I swear the woman felt like I was asking too much. It was expensive to pay for either a carry on bag or a checked bag and you had to pay for a seat if you didnt want to be stuck in the middle. Not a great experience."
