Boarding was a breeze. I like that they offered to check carry-ons. Considering we already had checked luggage it just made things that much easier. Drink options were good. I especially liked the bloody Mary mix with the lime packet. That was so delicious! Used to traveling other airlines where they have individual screens for each seat. Alaska does it different and you have to have your own device in order to access their media content.
Pros: "The crew was great and online booking put our two grandkids on our itinerary with us!"
Pros: "Super smooth landing and take off!"
Cons: "Our flight from Dublin arrived late, we missed our connection to the Alaska airlines. Since the arrival from Dublin came into terminal 1 and our Alaska airlines flight was in terminal 6 we would most likely have not made our connection anyway. Since we had a 3rd party booking they could do nothing."
Pros: "One of our baggage damaged. We reported to Alaska airline worker, she said wear and tear, they don't cover. we had to keep talking and took picture to made a claim."
Pros: "My bags are not check-in all the way to my final destination from an International Flight. My flight was delayed ."
Cons: "I wish passengers from an international flight has a better checkin baggage policy. I don't have to re-checkin again to my final destination."
Pros: "nothing you took me for my money and made me spend an extr $1600 dollars to get home from half way around the world. I felt you would have higher expectations from your service to people"
Cons: "treated me like i was a person and not someone that you are just collecting money from to pad your wallets"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The ground staff was careless, thus, they just broke my Second baggage in that transit."
Pros: "The crews were very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Because of seat screwup we were comped meals, entertainment drinks etc enjoyed the attention Good leg room"
Pros: "Alaska flight crew treated treated my violin with extra care. Thanks!"
Cons: "The flight was terrible. The lady in front of me had no idea how to discipline a child. Her son screamed the entire flight."
Pros: "Cheap to upgrade to first class, friendly staff efficient boarding."
Cons: "WiFi network was broken."
Pros: "Crew was great, food was okay, Gogo inflight was fine. Everything about the entire experience, TSA to arrival baggage carousel, was fine - except for the delayed departure. 2.5 hours due to air traffic control at the destination."
Cons: "The delay- even though I know it wasn’t an Alaska Airlines delay, still delayed me seeing my mom for another day... she’d gone to sleep by the tome I arrived."
Pros: "That the fly was on time."
Cons: "I didn’t like the attendance she was rude. They took my ID and they didn’t gave it back Can you please mail to my addres. 4420 Oregon st apt #1 San Diego ca92116"
Pros: "The smooth ride and excellent crew."
Pros: "Pilot was friendly and let us take pictures."
Pros: "Enough leg room, even for the middle seat, frequent beverage service and attendant, well, attendants"
Pros: "Flying Alaska airlines is always something I have a bittersweet relationship. I love almost everything that Alaska does to improve their airline. Their wifi is some of the best in the US and its very affordable. Their "picnic box" snacks are awesome and unique, better than what you will find elsewhere, they have USB and full AC outlets at every seat, and their rewards program is the best in the business. By all accounts, AlaskaAir would be my favorite airline out there. But the staff that Alaska hires is just so terrible. Everytime I fly with them, they have simply the worst staff. Pair this with some of the best features of any airline and it leaves me scratching my head on whether or not I want to fly with them or to fly with an airline like Delta which might have fewer frills, but offers much better staff to help you."
Cons: "The flight attendants were maybe the worst on any flight ever."
Pros: "Overall it was smooth and quick and a great flight. Will be choosing Alaska again."
Cons: "The crew's attitude could've been better"
Cons: "Had to ask for food to eat. Primary meal were heated cookies that could have been used as rocks. Took forever for crew to get drinks and serve. The worst first class I have ever been on. Seats were like riding in a 50 year old car."
Cons: "My emotional therapy dog of 7 pounds got part of her paw ripped off on an airport escalator. Though she was bleeding profusely all over me, I was not allowed to use the first aid kit to bandage her. I had to bring her to an emergency vet upon landing in Minneapolis"
Pros: "The flight was quick"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was excellent. Because I'm a vegetarian, he gave me a salad. Alaska does not provide but one meal choice in first class. Food options are way better in coach."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and meal choice is poor."
Pros: "Flight attendants were so helpful."
Pros: "The option to upgrade to first class for a reasonable price"
Pros: "the folks at Alaska Airlines were super helpful and outgoing. They really make your happiness a priority."
Pros: "I liked how friendly the attendants were and how the pilot included us on what was going on"
Pros: "After traveling on United earlier this week and having a horrific experience, Alaska airlines was the complete opposite. I had no problem making connecting flights, and all your staff was very friendly And helpful! I only wish you were in the southwestern part of the country as I live in Tennessee!"
Pros: "There was nothing out of the ordinary for this trip. I paid for my ticket and I got a ride to Salt Lake."
Cons: "Alaska Airline trip was nothing special at all. I did notice more people did not look the crew in the eye as much as in past trips. Passengers seemed more timid than normal engage a crew member, opting more to keep to themselves."
Pros: "This was our first time using Alaska Airlines and they were great! Checking in online was easy. Flight attendants and other staff were friendly and seemed to have your best interest in mind. My husband and I had a 20 hour layover in LA coming back from Costa Rica and we asked if we would have to pay another fee to recheck our bag for the second flight. They were very understanding and waived the fee since our overnight stay in LA was technically a layover and we had previously made the whole reservation for both flights at once using their company. Overall we liked our experience with Alaska and would definitely use them again!"
Pros: "More legroom than any airline I remember flying with recently. Super friendly gate agents ( needed to make a seat change last minute) and fun flight crew. Flight left 10 minutes ahead of schedule since all passengers were on board."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed from Mexico, so we raced to another terminal from the international terminal at LAX. He gate had actually been closed but they got permission to open it again just for us."
Cons: "My things got stolen and I filed a complaint but no one got back to me!!!!"
Pros: "Good flight, left on time, arrived early, friendly crew."
Cons: "Not that I feel entitled, but the complimentary movies and tv through my computer didn't work at all. The splash screen at airborne.gogoinflight.com worked fine, but airbornemedia.gogoinflight.com just timed out every time I tried to load it. So, that was a no-go."
Pros: "The gate staff and flight staff were courteous and friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours and even when that delay was reduced at the gate, it was delayed yet again. Plus, my baggage was over 30 minutes late at baggage claim."
Pros: "Everything on time Friendly crew"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats Food and entertainment n/a"
Pros: "The crew was great, friendly and helpful. Very nice interior of the aircraft."
Cons: "No air from the vent. Very warm, was sweaty the whole flight."
Pros: "It was a great flight well taken care off had a window seat and fell asleep"
Pros: "Sure did like the new plane. Quiet and comfortable"
Pros: "All good in Alaska air!!! Would fly them again no problem."
Pros: "My trip going to California and coming back home was so nice. I had no problems, everyone were eager to help. I felt so comfortable. The plane was clean. I would travel with Kayak (Alaska airlines ) again."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "Alaska airlines is amazing! I always feel very welcome, and there is never any hassle."
Pros: "Airplane was very quiet for a prop plane."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Landing took forever, stearing on plane malfunctioned, worst experience of my life"
Pros: "Reasonable baggage fee. Comfortable flight, seats, etc. Plenty of space for legs (I'm 6'4"). Requested window seat was available. Pleasant, professional staff at the gate. A little rough over the mountains -- but that always happens to SLC. Our flight was actually early. Baggage was waiting for me at the carousel when I arrived -- and I went almost directly there. I've never had that happen before -- great. I will fly Alaska again."
Cons: "My only complaint was with check-in. I used the self-serve kiosk, which was easy to follow and efficient. The problem arose when I needed to check my bag. The computer instructs the passenger to go to the "baggage drop-off area," which I did. However, there was nobody there to receive my bag or to check my ID and give me a boarding pass. There was staff helping other customers at the "full-service" area, and I tried to get their attention. All I got in return was a head shake "no." This was especially frustrating since one of the staff members was observing other staff -- not actually working the computer to check in customers. I understand that she may not be able to leave her post to operate another post, but it seems reasonable to walk the mere 10 feet over to me to explain that I am in the right area and someone will assist me shortly. I ended up getting in line, which defeats the purpose of the kiosk, only to see a staff member show up to the drop off area. Going back, everything went fine from there."
Pros: "Flight was on time, entire staff smiling and friendly. I don't travel much and everyone was pleasantly helpful"
Cons: "Not much I didn't like, the whole experience was super."
Pros: "The service of drinks. They combined my two favorite juices for me at my request and it was delicious...and so was the 2nd one. It looked so good, my seat mates asked for the same and loved it. On the flight to Hawaii was very comfortable, though probably because it wasn't as crowded."
Cons: "That on my way back, they switched me over to American, who hooked me with extra charges against my will, without any alternative choices."
Wasn't a very good selection of entertainment. The chairs were a bit uncomfortable.
We paid for preferred seating for extra leg room. On 3of the 4 flights the preferred seating were regular seats with no extra leg room. It was deceitful to advertise those seats at preferred seating. I would not have wasted my money paying extra had I known what I was getting.
It was hard to hear the PA announcements for boarding. Maybe also post the info on the screen? Or allow the attendant to pull down his mask when speaking into the PA system?
Our favorite flights. Straight shots, with as much comfort as one would expect.
Pros: "For full plane went well"
Cons: "Nothing short"
Cons: "Wouldn't let us on the flight when there was plenty of time to get there. Manager was arrogant and slow - didn't care. Poor policies at that airport."
Cons: "Need display screens for entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was great, cabin was clean"
Cons: "Wi-Fi was very spotty."
Cons: "Less announcements about masks we get it We don’t need instructions on hand washing Drink service needed"
Pros: "It was nice that middle seats were not filled."
Cons: "It was silly that the flight attendant said we had to pull mask up between bites of food."
Pros: "Fue muy buen vuelo y el personal muy amable Gracias !!"
Cons: "Lo q mas me gusto q fue un vuelo a tiempo y amables el personal"
Pros: "Fue un vuelo muy tranquilo y todos muy amables gracias!!"
Cons: "Muy cómodo el avión y el personal"
Pros: "Comfy without the middle seats being filled! Good entertainment and inflight wifi!"
Cons: "So over gold fish and biscoff cookies! I know with Covid it really affected meal service but Delta’s meal service is pathetic!"
Pros: "Plenty of room and everything was on time!"
Cons: "I didn’t take the flight. Due to a change in my post-flight quarantine lodging arrangements in Salt Lake City, I needed to change the date of my flight. Delta directed me to Aeromexico to make any changes. Aeromexico refused to allow any changes. So I was forced to not take the flight and buy a new ticket for a later date."
Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "Plane smelled like urine"
Cons: "Slat Lake is not good for mobility challenged people."
Cons: "Informing that the flight would delayed by three hours ahead of time would have been amazing. Instead of extending the delayed time every 45 min making us miss all the other opportunities to fly out"
Pros: "The sanitizing of the aircraft was beyond expectations. The personal wipes were a plus so we could clean the areas around our seats to our satisfaction. The individual snack bags are a great idea to minimize handling. The boarding rear to front should have been in place years ago and the deplaning was about normal front to rear with distancing."
Cons: "100% as always.. delta has never disappointed! Keep up the good work guys"
Pros: "I appreciate that Delta chooses customer safety over profit by not packing flights and continuing to social distance."
Pros: "Had a great professional crew even the pilot walked through the plane to answer questions"
Cons: "Nothing delta returns to the top"
Pros: "crew was exceptionally kind and helpful. I felt they really cleaned up, sanitized, even participated sanitary clothes and hand sanitizer to everyone."
Cons: "Nothing, perfect. better than expected."
Pros: "We were very efficiently boarded, however there was a mechanical problem. The flight attendants helped every one know where their connecting gates were, as we have exactly 9 minutes to make that connection."
Cons: "We were very efficiently boarded, however there was a mechanical problem. The flight attendants helped every one know where their connecting gates were, as we have exactly 9 minutes to make that connection. We would like to give a shout out to the baggage team that were able to transfer our bags in such a short amount of time. And also to the San Jose flight that we did for four of us."
Cons: "everything, never flying with delta again"
Pros: "Crew was great very clean and comfortable plane"
Cons: "Food was very inapropriate for the hr"
Cons: "Better choices for food"
Pros: "Great crew, comfy seats and efficient boarding!"
Cons: "I would ask that the gate does not share in detail reason for delay in seat assignment is related to getting a family sitting together when the basic rules should apply unilaterally."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The plane was extremely hot."
Cons: "Ran 2 1/2 hours late, poor customer communication"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Couldn’t hear/understand the pilot"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, for unkown reasons."
Cons: "A three hour delay on the first flight and a hour delay on the second..."
Cons: "Missed connecting flight because the first flight was delayed by 2.5 hours. I didn’t get the comfort seat I paid for because of this and was not given a refund for it."
Pros: "Movies selection were good, snacks were pretty good"
Cons: "Why make someone pay for an upgraded seat that doesn’t recline? Terrible. Also delayed the flight by an hour, no explanation, and no idea if connections would be made or not. Had to run to my connection and they almost didn’t let me on. Smh"
Pros: "The flight & landing were smooth, and we arrived a few minutes early."
Cons: "The entertainment system & WiFi were out. Wasn’t able to charge my phone either as the outlets weren’t functioning properly."
Pros: "I got to fly where I needed to go."
Cons: "The vents above my entire row of seats did not work, meaning there was never any air coming out even when they were fully open. This made for a long, hot, claustrophobic ride. The flight attendants seemed first disbelieving and later unconcerned that no air came out of our vents. I doubt they even reported them as broken after the flight. Delta's new boarding process is absolute chaos. More than half the plane had no seats assigned until 20 minutes before boarding, and the seats were displayed on a screen a good 25 feet away from the gate, meaning people had to constantly walk back and forth between the doorway and the screen. The gate agents were clearly overwhelmed. If this is how Delta is organized now, I won't be flying on them again."
Pros: "The exit row seat on this leg out of PHL to SLC did recline! No need for Delta Comfort+ unless you want to get off of the plane ... faster."
Cons: "For some reason, the pilot couldn't figure out how to adjust the cabin temperature for the first hour or so. This made the flight (and I was sitting in an exit row seat, right by the door which is usually cooler) uncomfortably hot and muggy. Food? No food. Thank goodness for Delta Lounge (even if it was the one in PHL). Just snacks make this a poor option for many. I don't know what is up, but the USB charger on the two monitors didn't work and neither did the outlet between the seats. And I have two different sets of cables "just in case" and they're the 3-in-1 so I can try to charge multiple devices (Apple, Android and Samsung) but nothing worked."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the movie selection on my personal entertainment screen. The movies were New releases and there was a good selection. Staff was also very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The cookies on the return flight with Delta were nice, but the mini meal on the flight down with Aeromexico was even better!"
Pros: "Able to download boarding pass into apple wallet"
Cons: "Flight was almost an hour late departing, bag is a carry on but storage too small to keep bag, then wifi didn't work the entire flight. Had to run to our connection since our layover time was taken up in Boise. If we had missed the flight, we would have been re-routed to another airport over 1 1/2 hrs away since ours closes. Next flight was not much better, oh and wifi did I t work on it also - last 3-4 delta flights I've taken have been late and didn't have working wifi - starting to think their system doesn't work at all - seriously going to take any other carrier but Delta going forward"
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so the service was very good lots of food and snacks and we arrived early too"
Cons: "Music was a. Bit limited"
Pros: "Good Snacks, crew is friendly, toilet was clean and we arrived on time"
Cons: "Two overhead bins burst open during takeoff. it's pretty scared when luggage could potentially come flying at your face."
Pros: "Delta does a good job of seating and meals and flight offerings"
Cons: "The crew were not customer oriented and seemed like they really weren't interested in their clients. Also we were bounced around between Air France and Delta at the ir port and when trying to check in online even though we booked through Delta."
Pros: "Your flight attendants were very personable and made a very long flight a comfortable as it could possibly be. They were pleasant and always available. Delta is always my go to airline ... especially on long trips as I upgraded to economy comfort and had a few more inches of leg room!"
I need to go back to waterloo this week
Pros: "Seats were great! No snackage... #covid19"
Pros: "excellent service very happy with the crew"
Cons: "Better food"
Cons: "The plane was cold. The entertainment was mediocure. The staff was telling the people to get in their seats quickly as they had missed their scheduled time for take off. Yet, they 1st said we would board a little late because og clearing out the previous flight. And, no one could get carry-ons above their own seats and had to go back to then come forward. The attendants should monitor better what is brought onboard. I thought they were rude. And it took almost an hr to get our luggage at the carosel."
Cons: "Be on time. Run planes that aren’t constantly breaking down."
Pros: "Great crew and staff."
Cons: "I didn’t notice that the aircraft didn’t have chargers so my phone died mid flight. I wish there were chargers on long flights."
Pros: "Pilot was awesome. Beautiful landing. Got us there safely."
Cons: "Rude crew member who yelled at me from across the cabin. I had stopped at an empty row to sit and look out a window. She yelled at me to return to my seat."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Pros: "The screens allowing us and our children to be entertained in the plane."
Cons: "Not had our plane delayed for over an hour."
Cons: "Waited one hour and 50 minutes for my luggage. The ENTIRE flight had to wait 1 hour and 50 minutes for our bags to come in on the carousel. There were no apologies or explanations or compensation offered for our wait. Absolutely unacceptable."
Pros: "Wonderful and on-time!"
Pros: "Comfortable seating and attentive service"
Cons: "Remote terminal which required walking stairs with carry-on bags, and two bus rides to reach the plane. No food other than packaged snacks in first class. No seatback video screen."
Cons: "Uncomfortable plane"
Cons: "Overbooking and worrying I would miss my trip"
Pros: "Food, staff and entertainment was good. However, the touch screen on one of our systems did not work, and had to use the remote control."
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms, and the one on our side got dirty fast. Also, give yourself lots of EXTRA time to get through the airport in Madrid. It takes forever to get out to the gate, and you have to go through Security, Immigration and sometimes a second more intense security (which we did). If you need to get your VAT refund on purchases, add at least ONE hour. 30 minutes to get the approval stamp in one line, and 30 minutes in another line to get your refund."
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Pros: "Pilot kept informing us what was happening..."
Cons: "Plane already late, then 15 minute taxi, then they could not drive the walkway up to us correctly so another 10 minutes wasted. We missed our connecting flight... rescheduled with different airlines much later. Missed a whole day out of our three day visit. Airline travel at its normal worst!"
Pros: "Non stop and an on time arrival after 20 min delay at phl when no gate agent could deplane previous flight. After being re-ticketed from overbooked united flight all in all not bad at all."
Cons: "They happen from time to time,... from many unassigned seats causing long gate line where several butted to the front to random noises during the flight from passengers to 6 bathroom trip guy just weird all around. Plus the multiple gate changes by PHL which are to be expected. Just a regular PHL departure,..."
Pros: "No problems, friendly crew"
Pros: "Professional crew. Good landing."
Cons: "Twice delayed because of delays in Newark connection. Need more room in coach."
Pros: "This trip was short and sweet.. Uneventful +Praise God!"
Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Airline screwed me ovet"
Pros: "Comfortable aircraft with an efficient and present crew."
Cons: "First, passengers had to wait in the main terminal for a bus ride to a remote terminal to wait to board. The only food items offered in first class were unhealthful packaged snacks. On a flight such as this, at 8:12 am, something like a breakfast wrap would be more appropriate, especially considering the fare charged."
Pros: "Nothing spectacular when sitting in economy."
Cons: "Agent at lost baggage was less than desirable. His attempts to read my mind failed miserably."
Cons: "Escape row seat in a non-escape row wasn’t too fun or comfy. Took half the flight to connect to the WiFi to watch movies to discover that the selection was limited and poor selections at that."
Pros: "Crew On time Boarding"
Cons: "Seat space very tight and I’m not a very big person Seat ahead of me fully reclined left me even less space Seats are very uncomfortable Expected more for the cost of over $200 one way"
Pros: "Operated by American Airlines, the flight was not terribly full so we could move to a row that was empty so you can sleep easier. smooth flight, arrived early."
Cons: "lost time and monies...and opportunities."
Pros: "extremely friendly, smiling, and helpful service by the flight attendants, comfortable upgraded first class seat, timely arrival."
Cons: "No food service other than snack/ junk food."
Cons: "First of all, the announcements that come on after we take off and last for 20 minutes is very annoying. We have brains, we can figure out how to plug our head phones in to watch the inflight entertainment. After saying the “show” was going to start, it never did. The screens were down the whole time and it remained black. good thing I had my phone with a movie on it, or I would be very bored for the 3 1/2 hour flight. Never flying with American Airlines again."
Cons: "An S80? Really? This plane was older than me! Horrible plane! The crew looked like they had been up since 4 am. Looked exhausted and unfriendly. I do want to clarify that this was an American Airlines operated plane, not etihad."
Pros: "Flying beats driving"
Cons: "no entertainment or food."
Pros: "The airplale MD 80 are old"
Pros: "The plane wasn't full so that was soo nice."
Cons: "No TV's or outlets."
Pros: "What did you like? The crew was extremely polite and greeted us when we entered the cabin. Willing to assist us if we needed assistance. they got us seated straight away, and we were off, they brought the beverage cart out straight away, offered us a snack of pretzels and a drink. it was pretty quiet on the flight a lot of tired people who just came from an international flight and just wanting to get home. both flights were on time. I haven't one bad thing to say about American Airlines"
Cons: "Seated next to two obese people and when combined with narrow seats made it all but impossible to sit comfortably on my seat. Flight was delayed on the tarmac for almost an hour due to missing part. When flight arrived in SLC, gate wasn't open (at nearly 1 AM) and had to wait on tarmac again for 10-15 minutes."
Pros: "Flight was good, there was no entertaiment, so i put one, but the flight was only almost 4 hrs. At night."
Cons: "I like the service I got and the service I got. I have back surgery and walk with assistance and the lady that helped me a the the birding desk took care of my needs and it was so much appriciated.. Thank you."
Pros: "Biscotti, pilot, crew"
Cons: "Seating is so uncomfortable, unable to recline more than an inch or so, then everybody rushes around making you return to an upright position! What's the point?"
Pros: "Upgraded to business class"
Cons: "I've never been so cold on a flight in my life. Had two blankets on me and still shivered the whole flight. Others in the cabin were wearing coats and sweaters - in July. Crazy cold."
Pros: "I loved the Movies that I could watch, Charger plug ins as well as the service. No extra hassel."
Cons: "Everything was fine. The flight was on time and I made it home safely."
Pros: "Was up to standard for everything. nothinf lacking, not exceptional"
Pros: "We flew out of Dallas on AA Eagle and what a great flight! Super roomy, great staff, newest aircraft. Loved it .. wish we could have flown all the way home to SLC on the Eagle!"
Cons: "The only thing we didn't like was the turbulance coming into Amarillo (tornado warning!) but the AA Eagle handled it just fine .. so truly there are NO complaints .. Love this short flight between Dallas and Amarillo!"
Pros: "The FAs on this flight were nice, engaging and caring, the way they should be, so I was happy about that."
Cons: "There was a teenager in front of me that was turning back every few seconds and made me nervous what she was looking back for. Then, there was an elderly woman sitting right next to me that kept pushing me every time she'd get out her tablet, pills, pocketbook, etc. By the end of the short 2-hour flight, I've had it with her."
Cons: "Charge for changing date"
Pros: "Great selection of movies, comfortable flight overall."
Cons: "Only one drink service for 5 hours, attendants not friendly or attentive, and it took an eternity--again with AA--for the bags to hit the carousel. Over 30 minutes' wait."
Pros: "Laura was very helpful and so was the gate agent."
Pros: "The site was easy to navigate"
Cons: "Delay but it happens"
Pros: "Everything was great could have done nothing to improve wonderful set"
Cons: "Everything was great magnificent service no complaints"
Pros: "The crew was really good, made sure our needs were met."
Cons: "The seats were quite crammed."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and the seats were comfy."
Cons: "I would have liked a snack instead of just a beverage alone."
Pros: "Wireless entertainment and seat spacing on the airbus"
Cons: "Boeing seats are too close together. Space them out"
Pros: "Crew was nice, boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "As always, seats are very tight and not super comfortable... but that’s true for all airlines these days, unfortunately."
Pros: "Organized gate"
Cons: "Information on delay boarding"
Cons: "Internet WiFi"
Cons: "We were delayed for an hour sitting in the tarmac because of “VIP” which sucked"
Cons: "Watched a handicap elderly lady put in the middle of economy and a young small healthy male bumped to first class. crew not prioritizing the elderly. With 16" of isle space an eastern crew member tried to push a airline wheelchair down the crowded isle. Treating paying passengers as llivestock"
Cons: "Food was not necessarily to our liking."
Pros: "Seem to be a smooth and direct flight"
Cons: "The flight was fine however my seat was next to the bathroom and people would occasionaly Bump in to me ."
Pros: "Great to always feel comfortable while traveling."
Cons: "The legroom is non-existent. I sure wish airlines didn't try to put so many seats in each aircraft."
Pros: "The flight was overall good, there it was simple and i got what I paid for. First class would have been worth the upgrade Im 6'6" and i was good for legroom."
Cons: "They lost my bag. Very huge issue followed. Staff was very helpful in getting me on track with who and when to talk with people however!"
Cons: "Wi-Fi did t work for most of the flight."
Pros: "Service and respect very good"
Pros: "On time, friendly, overall great!"
Pros: "The trip went smoothly and it was on time. The Crew was nice and efficient"
Pros: "The price of a ticket is slightly lower. It is not enough of a difference to make the plethora of inconveniences worth it. You are not a valued customer with this fare. If United values customers, they shouldn't offer this fare. That's why I don't fly the bargain airlines."
Cons: "You can't check in at the kiosk on basic economy without an employee badge swipe, and there were no employees available. I had to stop checking in, wait in line, and then the employee that I talked to didn't have the right kind of badge to swipe. So I waited again. Extremely inconvenient. Even after being forced to talk to a ticket agent at check in, they still won't issue a seat. So you have to go to the gate and wait in line again to get a seat. The system is built for maximum inefficiency. It doesn't cost less for them to make me talk to two separate people, it is only to inconvenience the flyer for buying a cheaper ticket. It seems like a punitive system. Boarding was organized and painless. The crew seemed polite. Regarding comfort, the "leg room" on the airbus is ridiculous. I am average height and felt claustrophobic. I can't imagine how a tall person feels. There was no " entertainment" on my flight, so one star for that. I didn't not receive any food and was not offered water, 1 star."
Pros: "Easy boarding, on time take off"
Cons: "Arrived early (yay), but had to sit on the runway for 45 minutes waiting for a gate and ended up getting to the gate later than the original expected time. Pretty ridiculous."
Pros: "Healthy options maybe apples or something, and cheaper for snack packs. Ability to accept cash."
Cons: "It was not made clear at all that I was buying a basic economy ticket and was not going to be allowed to take a carry on. That was really frustrating."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "When I made the reservation, somehow I was assigned lowest status, and boarded the plane last, meaning no overhead storage."
Pros: "$155 roundtrip cost with limitations described before purchasing tickets. It would be much better to at least be able to take a backpack as a carry-on, but all costs were included in the price except luggage and that was reasonable at $25/bag."
Cons: "Not being able to take a backpack as a carry-on"
Cons: "The crew & boarding. Awful snacks."
Cons: "I'm disappointed that I had to pay to watch the flight tracker, that it wasn't a free option and I had to be continually subjected to commercials that were irrelevant to me."
Cons: "milk products in the snack bag, gross."
Pros: "The flights were wonderful. Boarding process went smoothly."
Cons: "Unable to pre-check online. Unable to check at the check in machines--had to go up and check in at the counter, long wait because there was only one clerk. We were then given a ticket just to get through security and had to check in a second time when we get to the gate for seat assignment, which is ridiculous. Why couldn't that be done at the 1st check-in? The clerk told me she will call me when she has the seat assignment/ boarding ticket but she never did and I had to go back up to ask for them when it was getting close to boarding time. At the last moment minutes, volunteers could check in their carry on for free....It would have been nice (and less hassle) to have that option at the 1st check-in."
Pros: "The lady helping me before boarding plan was awesome thanks enjoy your week"
Pros: "Flight finally left for ORD. Staff kept folks apprised and boarded us quickly."
Cons: "Continual delays. UAL staff did not address issue of whether folks would miss connections in ORD. Yet we were seated next to the AA counter where their staff was actively working on this issue (missed connections in ORD). Seemed like AA cared a bit more."
Pros: "I appreciate that United hasn't gotten greedy with baggage charges and has kept their seating comfortable. Last Frontier flight was RIDICULOUS!!"
Pros: "I like being in an earlier boarding group and sitting by a window."
Cons: "Seats are too close together and reclining makes it very uncomfortable for the person behind the recline."
Pros: "I really like almost everything about flying with Lufthansa."
Cons: "Checking in and obtaining my boarding pass was a less than satisfying experience. Initially I could not check in until arrived at the airport because the first leg of my trip was Lufthansa through United? I tried to check in on BOTH United and lufthansa's website neither worked. I then spent about 45 minutes on the phone with a Lufthansa representitave just to find out I would be unable to check in until I arrived at the airport the next day. Once I checked in to the airport I could only get my seat for the first flight and was told I would have to get my subsequent seats while on layover. When I arrived at my layover, while trying to get my seat for the next flight I was told they were overbooked and I would have to wait 'over there' until they could figure out a place for me to sit. But when the attendant printed my ticket she was shocked to find out I had a seat, and angrily reported that 'I don't know how YOU got a seat, but you did. So go get in line for the flight!' That said, I did get in line, I did get fairly decent seats the whole trip, and all but one employee were overly helpful and nice. However it would have been far less stressful if I was just able to check in for the initial flight."
Pros: "Speed and ease of our return home."
Cons: "We got in SO early, there was no gate ready for us at Newark, so we had to stay on board at least 30 min. Also they didnt allow even 1 person waiting in queue for bathroom, so if you sat down you'd lose your place."
Pros: "The other legs of the trip were on time"
Cons: "The second leg of the trip was two hours late which always happens at Chicago Ohare"
Cons: "Every flight I had was delayed at least an hour, and one of my flights was delayed 2.5 hours, which caused me to miss an important meeting. When I asked why it was taking so long, the United customer service representative was very short and somewhat rude. Not a great experience this time that's for sure."
Cons: "seats were extremely uncomfortable"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Airplane was damaged and united wouldn't rebook us until the flight was officially cancelled hours later. Then United provided only one service person to address all of the passengers needs so we had to stand in line for a couple hours longer. Then they had no hotel rooms to put anybody up for the night that couldn't get a flight until the next day. Then they gave us a measly $10 food voucher. Then our luggage was mishandled has still has not shown up to my house. Then because of the change in flights I had to rearrange transportation home at 1130 pm that cost me an extra $125. A very miserable day because of United's lack of being proactive and poor decision making given the situation and circumstances."
Cons: "The flight was delayed multiple times causing me to have to literally run across airport to catch international connecting flight. Gate crew did very little to assist me in securing an alternate flight. On board crew did little to assist me in finding out information and getting me off the plane quickly to get to my connecting flight. Overall they showed little empathy and customer service."
Pros: "When I got on the plane"
Cons: "Late by more then an hour and I missed my connection home. I had to stay the night in Denver and miss a day of work. This cost me an extra day and about $1000 worth of missed revenue."
Pros: "Overall good flight. Very quick! :) nice pilot"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "One strange thing happened on my United airlines flight. The crew announced before we boarded that there wasn't enough overhead space for rolling bags and encouraged us to check them in. Upon boarding they announced that all overhead space in the back was full. I sat in the back and noticed that the crew closed the overhead compartments even though they were mostly empty. Another passenger opened an empty one and the crew came over and closed it right away, though many people were still boarding. What's going on?"
Cons: "Very slow boarding. The entire last boarding group had to gate check our bags, despite there being lots of room in the overhead bins when we got on. Then we had to go to baggage claim to retrieve them, rather than having them unloaded quickly and returned to us when we de-boarded. My carry-on is no longer clean; it not has big black spots on it, and came though the baggage claim partially wet from the rain. I was not happy."
Cons: "Flight was over 2 hrs delayed so I couldn't even take the flight. Waste of my money. Paid 330 dollars and got nothing. Now United nor you guys are helping. Never again will I use this site"
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and I received a lot of updates on my flight infor before my flight"
Cons: "Although I received a lot of flight info about my delayed flight I wouldn't receive it sometimes until right before the time changes. Also we were boarded and still sat on the plane and waited for almost an hour before leaving the Tarmac and received no reason as to why we're still sitting until over 40 minutes of waiting. Also the bathroom water smelled bad and it felt extra small."
Cons: "The man in charge of seat assignments and boarding refused to talk to any of us who hadn't been assigned seats until everyone else had fully boarded the plane. He just told us "wait 20 minutes. No wait 30 minutes. Wait." While he did end up giving us seats, he was extremely unhelpful through the process as he wouldn't give us any information and had us wait in line from well before the boarding process until the end. Then on the plane, the air was so cold as to be truly uncomfortable. The flight attendant did try to warm it up though after multiple people requested, so she was quite nice."
Pros: "One leg of this trip had free access to United WIFI and free access to entertainment on your personal devices. Seemed like a great way to keep passengers entertained without having to install the screens for each seat, passengers have their devices anyway."
Cons: "My knees were pressed against the seat in front of me and it was painful when they reclined their seat."
Pros: "Fast getting my seat assignment. The guy at the gate counter was nice and courteous."
Cons: "TSA line was ridiculously long. Only one checkpoint open for the entire terminal."
Boarding was smooth. I took a backpack as a personal item, no big drama there. The crew was pleasant and respectful. The flight was smooth, reached out destination 1 hr early. Will fly frontier again.
I should've researched Frontier a little better. There is a charge for carry-on luggage and a charge for your seat assignment. The flight was delayed 1 hour with no notice at the gate and there was no Frontier representative at the gate until it was time to board.
On time …uneventful Works for me
Selling seats to make a bit more profit for airlines has turned into a nightmare for those of us not willing to pay extra fees, this flight was packed at the back of the plane leaving full rows of seats empty and unavailable, horrible practice during a pandemic. Is it really worth it to spread such ill will? And not even one ounce of complimentary water. No thanks done with Frontier and fee based flying.
Add some onboard entertainment or wifi. Give at least water and a simple snack for free.
Pros: "Quick efficient"
Cons: "Frontier made me miss this flight"
Cons: "El servicio es de lo peor"
Pros: "Crew very kind and helpful. Seats a little tight"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "The ease of getting onboard."
Cons: "I paid extra for the exit seats thinking there were going to be more comfortable, they were worse then the regular seats and I felt ripped off. On top of that you charge for water? That’s silly."
Pros: "I didn’t like a think since I checked in online and arrived within the 45-60min window to check my luggage. The system said it couldn’t find me. Frontier marked me as a no show before the time window closed"
Cons: "A full refund or they could’ve let me use that ticket price I’ve towards another flight equal to or of lesser value. What really ticked me off was I had to pay for my bags for them to turn around right after I gave them my card to swipe they then mark me as a no show getting even more money from. I will never use frontier ever again. I’d rather pay more money and delta"
Cons: "No allowing passengers in the back run to the front when the plane stops"
Cons: "You get what you pay for! Super full flight, no amenities or comfort"
Cons: "The only negative was the weather!"
Pros: "They gave us the emergency row with more space which we liked!"
Cons: "Boarding process could have been better. I felt I was poorly informed of the technical issues and would have liked a better understanding of what was going on. Boarding and then having to deplane right before departure due to a tire inspection fail was unnecessary. I feel as though the inspection should have happened prior to boarding."
Pros: "My seat and the flight crew."
Cons: "You being on time."
Pros: "Finding a better price than the actual site of the air line"
Cons: "Nothin honestly."
Pros: "We had plenty of room with our young children. Everything was super clean!"
Pros: "Amazing it took an international pandemic to finally convince airlines to board from the back front."
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice after boarding, we had to sit in the plane for almost 2 hours. I dont think frontier is worth the price anymore, you definatley get what you pay for. I had to check a bag both ways because a checked bag is cheaper than their fee to carry on a bag. There were no complimentary drinks or snack even after having to sit on the plane for so long. I requested an aisle seat and got stuck in the middle. Overall, think I will be paying the extra for any other airline than frontier."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues. No help was offered other than rebooking on a flight that didn’t get me to my destination until the next day and included an overnight stay at a hub airport with no hotel voucher. When told that was unacceptable I was handed a piece of paper listing two “Options” from Frontier. Both options involved going to a website and filling out forms. One for cancellation and $500 in travel vouchers which, after filling out the form and submitting returned with a message that the website was closed. Option 2 was to try to rebook which led to a dead end. I finally called Frontier directly and spent over 45 minutes getting everything straightened out. Now I have vouchers that have to be used by January 1, 2019."
Pros: "The seats had lots of room"
Cons: "The flight attendants were very informal and not well groomed. The announcements made were not very professional"
Cons: "Flight was more than 1 1/2 hours late taking off after we had already boarded with only one update from captain explaining that there was a computer problem and he had no idea when it would be fixed but that they were working on it. When we finally did take off, we waited for an additional 30 minutes in Salt Lake while we waited for a gate and another 30 minutes to be allowed off after reaching the gate. Given the amount of time for security and early check-in protocol, I could have rented a car and only arrived an hour later to my destination without having to endure this flight."
Cons: "The ticket was cheap so of course we booked asap! Additionally you pay for your seat, some airlines there is free options, sometimes not. But with the price of your seat and ticket with any other airline, it comes with a free carry on bag and even some small free snacks on the flight. Nope. Pay extra hefty fees for small carry on, and of course pay extra for peanuts or even water. So after everything, it’s the same price as any other airline. At least delta has TV or United has snack options or American has decent leg room. Didn’t like either Frontier plane I flew on. Now I know for the future, it’s not as cheap as I thought."
Cons: "Second time in a row we've waited in excess of 30 min for luggage at the carousel"
Pros: "Crew was fine."
Cons: "Please forward this to everyone you know! Do NOT EVER fly on Frontier Airlines!!!!!! They are a total joke and charge fees for EVERYTHING!!!!! Want to carry on a bag or push everything you need into a small backpack? Oh, need to take clothes? Well that's $40...per carry on, $60+ at the airport. Oh, you wanted to sit down? That will cost you...$10 per seat minimum, again more at the airport. Btw, those fees only cover one leg of the trip. You can save by leaving your luggage there. See how helpful we are? You think you are getting a good fare but the fees have made my trip almost three times the initial fare. United is testing similar "economy" fares. None of this information is presented upfront so it's a bait and switch scenario. Also, trying to reach a human being is nearly impossible. I feel sorry for the customer service reps, they should get hazard pay. They have to try to justify these ridiculous policies. Save yourself money and frustration and NEVER FLY FRONTIER AIRLINES!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "After a 10 hour layover, they stopped the boarding process because a toilet malfunctioned and we had to wait another 45 minutes. The lack of complimentary beverages was pretty annoying as well, especially considering that after buying my tickets, I spent an additional $75 on checking bags as well as another $50+ to choose my seats at on-line check in. Of course nowhere did it mention that if I simply checked in at the airport instead of doing it online beforehand, I could be assigned seats and it wouldn't cost me anything. I drop $1000+ on airfare, checked bags, and sneaky extra fees, and you can't even give me a $.50 can of soda for free? I've flown Frontier before, but the customer service has gone downhill in the past few years. I will never use this airline again and I encourage others to do the same. They're providing an inferior service and staying in business by offering "cheaper airfair" which they make up for by tacking on exorbitant luggage fees, sneaky online fees, and neglecting customer comfort."
Pros: "I liked the ticket agent in Denver who fixed my incorrectly printed boarding pass."
Cons: "Flight was over 2 hours late. Missed my scheduled flight in Denver, did get on a later flight that night, but got in very late. Ticket agent at the desk before I left MSP took my boarding pass for flight from Denver to SLC, not sure if he listed me on the wrong flight out of Denver or if the agent at the desk in Denver printed the wrong boarding pass. A SLC and Las Vegas flight were at neighboring gates when I realized something was wrong. I'd been printed a boarding pass for the flight to Las Vegas instead of SLC. Glad I noticed it before the last flight to SLC left. Was suffering at the time with a bout of diverticulitis, the straight up and down, nonreclining seats were horrific for me."
Cons: "Packed in like sardines, Frontier has replaced their seats with glorified folding chairs that do not recline and offer a fold down table smaller than a table napkin. Rows have been shifted so there is less room than before! Impossible! No beverages, even water, unless you pay. No food unless you pay. After airfare we than had to pay $17 a seat per person each way to select a seat. (Wasn't that what airfare is, buying a seat?) My 56,000 saved miles have disappeared from the Frequent flyer program with no warning so now I have no reason to Fly Frontier. And won't."
Cons: "No real complaints about the flight, HOWEVER, Frontier's luggage handlers (probably in Denver) ruined a piece of my luggage. I got home very late and didn't notice the problem until the next morning. I checked their baggage policy and noticed there was a four-hour window to report lost or damaged luggage, so I was out of luck on a $100 piece of luggage. I recognize damage can be caused by any airline, but when you have to pay to check a bag AND carry one on, you would think you'd be given more than four hours to report a problem."
Cons: "I've never felt more taken advantage of by a company than I have for Frontier airlines. I purchased my ticket on a tight budget, only to find that the cost more than doubled from fees when I arrived at the airport. I was expecting to pay extra for a checked bag, but have never flown with an airline that also charges $40 for an overhead bag. I ended up spending more on luggage than my actual ticket (2 bags), which turned what would have been the cheapest flight option, into the most expensive. They also have a seat fee- yet another last minute slap-to-the face charge."
Pros: "getting off the plane"
Cons: "one crew member (aft steward) was a little tyrant. I was waiting for a seating error/confusion to be resolved and he kept harping to get out of the aisle and take my seat (which was occupied). He then closed all the overheads when we were half boarded - making new arrivals scrambling for storage. Also, all the hidden fees!! I paid 1 1/2 times my airfare in more fees. I'll fly another airline before choosing you again. I have flown over 500,000 miles in the past 20 years and this was the worst."
Pros: "I liked the fact that I was FINALLY able to fly from MSP to Denver. My flight was cancelled due to the weather. The woman at check-in was very, very good as far as being able to handle a lot of cranky passengers. She kept a positive attitude and was able to book me on a flight 2 days later. Kudos to her."
Cons: "No compensation was offered. NONE. This lay over was expensive (two nights in a motel plus food). You didn't even offer me a drink of water while I stood in long lines getting to the check-in counter and then waiting to make arrangement at a motel. I know the weather is out of your control, but couldn't you at least try to make your patrons comfortable after they have been on the road in sub-zero weather, in the snow trying to make their flight??? Enuf said. I will likely not fly with you again."
Pros: "Crew did a fine job."
Cons: "Booked over Kayak which did not inform me of the excessive charges for things like booking seats or carry-on luggage. In addition, the new Airbus planes have seats that do not recline, made of rigid foam padding, and tray tables that are smaller than an iPad Mini. There was no food or beverage without an extra fee. There was no entertainment. Frontier would be a lot further ahead if it worked with services like Kayak to report consistent cost of fairs compared to other vendors. The bottom line is that this is the last time I fly Frontier, and the last time I book using Kayak."
Pros: "Prices we're good. The on flight staff was friendly, it's unfortunate that you have to pay extra for non alcoholic drinks and carry on bags. Gone are the days of cheap flights AND honey roasted peanuts. But I guess that's the trade off for cheap airfare now a days."
Cons: "On our departing flight my husband and I had gotten us and our 4 kids up to the gate only to realize I had forgotten to add my lap child to my ticket. I get that it was not convenient but the lady was very short and rude and angry with us, she treated us like complete idiots. While it was an unfortunate thing to have slip my mind, it happens! I was bound to forget something when packing and prepping for me and 4 kids to travel. We offered to show our post on Facebook when our daughter was born as proof of age. But she gufawed that ridiculous idea. Because obviously we could have set up fake accounts and hacked the dates to make it look like our kids was under 2!! Really!?? A social security card doesn't even show birth dates. Anyway, the whole charade left us feeling very embarrassed, frustrated and like we were criminals or something. She handled things very unprofessionally and showed us no empathy whatsoever. She told us we would not be allowed onto our return flight without a ss card or birth cert. Which we got when we reached our destination. Upon boarding for the return flight the workers were great. They let us right on the flight and didn't even ask for the birth cert. or anything. They used common sense. Which is what I wished this other flight attendant had more of."
Pros: "We got to our destination."
Cons: "Seats are like sitting on a piece of plastic and they don't recline, which was funny every time we landed or took off they would ask to have the seats put in the upright positions. The minimal savings you think you are going to have go away quickly when you find out you have to pay for a carry on and pay for a checked bag. Oh and you want a soda and a snack on your 3.5 hour flight? better be prepared to dish out for them as well. When you are getting on the plane they have billboards going down the walkway that say Featured on Frontier and Showing soon on Frontier, but no TVs to view on. No place to plug in your devices to charge like the other airlines I use."
Cons: "I contacted Frontier about a week before my flight to let them know my friend I was flying to visit had to make an emergency trip to see her father who was dying of liver failure. On the first attempt I was notified that only immediate family members were would be an excuse but that I could try to request through a different faucet of emergency circumstances. I put through another request and was never contacted. I did not fly to Salt Lake but I was still charged even though they could very well have sold my seat to another person and made double the money for the seat. I am very disappointed with the service I received from Frontier."
Pros: "Nothing. If I could say that I liked something, it would be that I liked that my flight wasn't any longer than it was."
Cons: "Both planes (departure and returning) were old, dirty, and I have sat in more comfortable metal folding chairs than the chairs on these planes. Frontier charges for everything. They charge for seats that recline, charge outrageously for reclining seats with a ting bit more leg room, their beverage service is not free, only water is not charged. No snacks either. Luggage that is considered carry on at any other airline is charged at $60 at the gate and the flight attendants pander and really push passengers to apply for their credit card. Horrible all the way around and we will NEVER fly Frontier again. Ever."
Cons: "I felt duped. I chose Frontier because of the competitive rate for the flight fee. I had NO idea I was going to be asked to pay $60 for my carry-on bag at the gate! and THEN be required to pay again for a simple drink and snack on the airplane. I understand charging for upgraded options of more expensive drinks and larger snack items and additional baggage, but whatever happened to including the basic courtesies in the cost of the flight!? Again, I felt duped! I will not be choosing Frontier again in the future unless these things change. And, oh my gosh, sitting within 3 rows of the lavatory was extremely uncomfortable to the nose the entire flight! Surely there are better ways of de-odorizing!"
Pros: "Seats were ok. Drinks on plane weren't too overpriced."
Cons: "You get what you pay for as they say. Crew was unprofessional, rude, didn't even tell me which way my gate was I had to turn back around and ask. All they were doing was BSing with each other and laughing. Pilot took forever to even take off, we literally drove around on the ground going like 10 mph for about 15-20 minutes, and because we didn't take off when we were supposed to I assume is why our flight got delayed an hour! Never have had a delayed flight until frontier. Then to make matters worse, I checked my bag and they put it on the wrong belt I literally waited for my one suitcase for about 45 minutes! Like wtf get your situation together. Not to mention the $30 1st bag fee at least sun country gives you that."
Pros: "The only thing that was bearable was the staff. They were pleasant enough and continually apologized for the massive delays."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed. The return flight was delayed by three hours. I understand things happen but rather than feeding me a line of bs about how it's only going to be "a little while longer" I would have rather have been told that the flight wouldn't board till three hours later. Because the flight was so late I missed my shuttle and ended up getting a cab which was an expensive toll I was less than pleased to pay. The plane seating itself is uncomfortable as all hell. Granted I'm 6'3" with a muscular build I could have chose a stretched seat but for a 1.5 hour flight I didn't think the extra fee was worth it. This and several other minor things have convinced me to never fly Frontier again so long as I can help it."
Cons: "Pretty much the experience. I had a pretty lengthy layover to begin with. The delayed flight was absurd. It doubled my layover with little to no notification as to when it was going . It is was pushed back 5 times with no announcements from any Frontier employees. Plus once the plane finally ended up showing up, the gate was staffed with one employee that was seriously overworked. Everything was delayed again. Once we boarded the plane, there was yet another delay from the maintenance crew and there was no estimated time for departure. This seriously is making me consider never flying Frontier again."
Cons: "I felt duped and deceived by the slimy nature of your airline not being upfront with its prices. $13 dollars to choose a seat??!? 40 FREAKING dollars just to WALK on the plane with my carry-on?? I thought Fronteir would be like other airlines but no, I had to pay $53 TWICE just to walk on the plane for my round trip flight. If my flight is going to be $106 more than what I paid on the ticket, then tell me upfront so I can know not to fly with you guys. And after all of that, being tricked into paying more than HALF of my ticket price in stupid hidden fees, your plane was cramped and austere, lacking the padded chairs, ample legroom, normal-sized tray tables, and conplimentary beverages available on countless other airlines. So I basically paid $100 extra for a cramped and uncomfortable flight. I was disappointed in your airline as a whole and will never be flying with Fronteir again."
Pros: "The safety of the flight, kindness of the attendants and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "The hidden fees. I purchased a ticket not knowing that I would then have to pay for a seat! How ridiculous is that??? Did you expect I would hold on to a handle like on a subway??? If I purchase a ticket, I expect that to include a seat. Your ploy to attract people to purchase tickets, and then charge up the nose for even a seat as well as a carry on bag and peanuts, is not impressive. I will not purchase a ticket on Frontier again and I will definitely let my friends and family know that they will be paying just as much for Southwest if they do so. I'd rather know up front what the total charges will be. Very disappointed in this aspect of my purchase."
Cons: "Although there were warnings that "fees may be applied", I could not find how much those fees would be until 24 hours before my flight when I checked in. Before that, I had actively searched for how much I would be charged for my seat and my luggage both online and on the phone. No answers. I described this process to a lawyer who said there is possibility for a large class action lawsuit. I ended up having to pay $70 in fees (and will again on my flight back home -- probably -- again, there's no way for me to find out from Frontier until I check in). I don't mind fees, but they should be transparent. I will never fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Nice newer airplane Hidden fees not so friendly"
Cons: "They charge me $50 for a seat at check-in They charged me $40 to carry-on one bag at check in They charge for all refreshments and snacks. The only thing that was complementary was a small glass of water. One of the flight attendants asked me if I would be willing to give up my aisle seat that I paid an extra $50 for to take a center seat so a teenage boy could sit by his mother. 99 times out of 100 I would have given the boy my seat. However this was a longer flight and I just had to pay $50 to obtain my aisle seat. When I tried to nicely explain that I just paid extra money to get this I'll seat the flight attendants response was " well he had to pay $50 for that center seat also, so it's basically the same seat". I replied no actually that is a center seat and I'm sitting in an aisle seat so they are different. After I declined to change my seat the flight attendant gave me major attitude about it and went off and informed the other flight attendants that I would not change seats. All of the flight attendants gave me the stink eye the rest of the trip, treated me rudely, & and ignored me as much as possible. I've been flying for my profession for 13 years and this was the most unprofessional crew I've ever seen. This is my one and only complaint about a flight in 13 years of many many flights. I will try very hard not to fly with Frontier ever again."
Pros: "Crew was considerate and offered updates as we waited. We were given a lunch voucher and $100 voucher for a future trip -- on frontier and within 3 months. Fortunately for me, I did not have a connection and the person I was meeting in Orlando was also delayed 4 hours from a different location . So I was only moderately inconvenienced. Ordinarily this would have been a very costly event. This is my 2nd trip on the same flight within one month. Non-stop and times are great. First trip was on schedule and solid. Very friendly staff. Planes seemed new, cean, and safe, but not very comfortable (seats did not recline!?)"
Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours. We all boarded the plane before being told there was a problem, so then everyone had to de-plane and wait near gate for more information. Arrived Orlando too late to drive to destination. Wasted a day of car rental. Must use $100 voucher within 90 days."
Cons: "Baggage drop lines were unbelievable. Foreign travelers were in the same line as domestic. There were only four agents to handle 100s of passengers. When I checked in online, to select a seat I had to pay an additional fee and then was also charged for my carry on bag which increased my fare by $68. In addition they do not participate in TSA precheck which further delayed my security process. Although I had allowed plenty of time (1 1/2 hours) to drop my bag and get through security by the time I got to my gate my flight was already boarding. Additionally you are charged for everything on the flight even water which for a 3 1/2 flight is ridiculous."
Pros: "The staff was working very hard yet maintained cheerful attitudes after the previous day's wipe out of almost all flights due to a blizzard."
Cons: "Paying for a carry-on - really means that they are NOT competitive with other carriers. I was not aware of this and their other site (KAYAK, etc.) representatives need to VERY CLEARLY identify the carry-on charge policy. The time to process stand-bys was excessively long. It took over half an hour to process the stand-bys to allow our cabin door to close when we were already delayed 40 or so minutes. Also, 1) Notifications of delays were slow and 2) A warning to expect crowded ticket counter conditions would have been helpful."
