Pros: "Good crew"

Cons: "Better & more snacks.....no ice?"

Pros: "As always the Delta crew was super friendly and helpful and made the trip very enjoyable."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Cons: "The website could work for starters"

Pros: "I like the comfortable seats and the entertainment feature found on every seat."
Cons: "Not much. Delta is superior"

Pros: "I liked that is was a short flight"
Cons: "Plan was old. Seats not comfortable. Plane not clean. Flight attendants not attentive. A lady stored her carry-on on the floor in front of her and she was in the emergency row! Attendant walked by before takeoff and said nothing! Really?!"

Pros: "Amazing crew as always"
Cons: "Wifi on smaller hoppers"

Cons: "I used 7900 points to upgrade to “comfort” and nothing about it was comfortable. I was squashed between a window and a large man and my tv screen kept flickering on and off. I actually felt like I had less space overall than I would have in a regular seat."

Pros: "The seat was very comfortable even as a basic seating and the entertainment options were great."
Cons: "The voice from the pilot was very loud and would be too much if I had my headphones on."

Cons: "Disembarking could be more efficient"

Pros: "Very comfy first class seats"

Cons: "Bigger personal space"

Cons: "I now know the downside of buying through Kayak, the ticket is non-upgradable even when seats became open and I offered to pay for the upgrade."

Pros: "The attention to detail from the crew, and the friendliness"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "With all the competition among airlines and the cutbacks we suffer as customers Delta manages to make you feel like you matter still. Timely boarding, actual help with finding seats making boarding efficient (not just hurrying you along), updates from the cockpit that you could hear and understand, multiple choices in snacks-one even a healthy option, staff that was friendly and interested in making it a good experience not one that seemed bothered they had to work."

Pros: "very nice and willing stewardesses"
Cons: "tragic little place for legs, lack of space"

Pros: "Quick and easy."

Pros: "The flight from Dallas was on Wednesday the 8th of August. It was scheduled for a 32 minute layover, which turned into a 30 minute layover. My son, who I booked the ticket for, ran all the way to the connecting flight's gate. They'd already closed the doors, and wouldn't let him on. Consequently he had to be re-booked onto the next flight, which didn't leave until 2200."
Cons: "Did I mention that he'd taken a Greyhound bus to Dallas from Memphis on Monday the 6th of August? He got to DFW airport on plenty of time for his flight to Scotland. It should have been DFW to JFK to Glasgow. Delta cancelled his flight. Citing "weather issues." My family researched this, and couldn't find any weather issues in the North East or NY area."

Pros: "On time. Seat upgraded seat to Delta Comfort plus, courteous flight crew, music before take off and landing."

Pros: "The chargers worked in neither airplane."
Cons: "The chargers worked in neither airplane."

Cons: "It was smelly. Anyone who does not smoke can smell old smoke. Yuk. Also, smells like a neighboring passenger has bowel issues. Ick"

Cons: "Almost an hour late leaving the gate."

Pros: "Upgrade to ComfortPlus"

Pros: "The flight was on time. Airport personnel were courteous & efficient. Airplane was clean. Pilot was friendly. A passenger had a peanut allergy so Delta distributed almonds, instead. Nice. Overall, I like Delta."
Cons: "Leg room was just barely adequate. It was a small plane-nothing could be done about that."

Pros: "The flight is short and easy."
Cons: "I always try to purchase an aisle seat. I feel like there is more room and I don’t feel trapped against a window. This flight a man with very broad shoulders sat in the middle seat. I felt like he should have paid for half my ticket since he sat in half my seat. Thankfully the flight is short. Had it been my second flight I would have been quite upset."

Pros: "Zones are more delineated."
Cons: "People were obviously cutting in line and edging up before their zones were called."

Pros: "Love the TVs provided with recent movies and games"
Cons: "Security was a headache"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "I don’t know what Delta could have done better on this two leg flight from Albuqueque to Miami via Atlanta . Yes we were in First Class and it was a (groan) 6:05 AM flight which meant that we were probably on time. But Delta’s 737-900 (to Atlanta) was very comfortable, the crew did everything well and the breakfast was quite good. (Make sure you try the quiche). We had the same crew on the next leg to Miam, who were surprised and gave us a warm welcome. There were only snacks in 1st for that short segment, but they were all we wanted."
Cons: "Air turbulence over the Midwest storms."

Pros: "The staff was wonderful and the flight was smooth"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The plane went where it was supposed to go."

Pros: "Great and friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Left a bit late."

Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Small aircraft. Loud engine noise. Biased treatment for tickets booked on non Delta sites"

Pros: "The TV selections"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Comfort"

Pros: "The in flight entertainment and the pilot being informative about what was going wrong at the Atlanta airport."
Cons: "The insane process that followed the flight of rebooking - it would have been VERY HELPFUL to have access to the inflight internet so that I could have rebooked my missed connection before we landed in the ATL airport where it was past midnight and there were hardly any staff available for us to talk to and the lines to speak to anyone took literal HOURS to get through."

Pros: "Great!"
Cons: "Great!"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. We got a free dinner with wine and free breakfast. Everyone got pillows and blankets."

Cons: "Took 8 hours to get from Oakland to Los Angeles. Flight delayed then cancelled at Oakland. Driven from there to San Francisco. That flight delayed by 45 minutes. Got on board and then they neede 4 people to get off the plane since it was overweight. That took another hour. Bad day of travel."

Pros: "Lots of seat space even in economy, I felt very comfortable and not cramped on my flight. Food was decent and flight attendants were very attentive. My flight was kind of an outlier experience as someone on my flight fell very ill and needed immediate medical attention. The KLM employees on board did a very good job of taking care of the situation and making sure everyone else on board still had a calm flight experience."
Cons: "My connecting flight was scheduled too close to my landing time."

Pros: "I got upgraded to 1st class Enjoyed the luxury and extra attention"
Cons: "The bathroom was really tiny.but apart from that everything was perfect"

Pros: "Good pilot. Decent flight attendants. All good."
Cons: "The price."

Pros: "Appreciated the crew keeping things low key as it was a night flight"
Cons: "There were several members of one family on the flight scattered all over the plane. They seemed to want to visit with each other before the flight (making it difficult for me to get to my seat) and during the flight (making it tough to get some sleep). It would be nice if they had been seated together so as not to disturb others. I know this really isn't Delta's fault, but some people aren't very conscientious"

Pros: "Delta has failed in trying to break into the Aspen market. Their "personal ground crew" was hapless. Half the passenger bags didn't make it on to the plane. When we checked in the ticketing agent was randomly stacking bags in a heap behind her, and not putting them on the conveyor belt. The flight attendant was loud and screechy, saying that it was easier to leave off the bags than take people off the plane. What?? How was this not accounted for before the flight. On the way out, they forgot to build in time to de-ice the plane. SMH"

Pros: "On time, great service"

Pros: "Well after going through a terrible storm to get to the airport we were given a opportunity to up grade to First Class for a very reasonable rate. That was great."

Pros: "Row 19 on a 737ER is great for room, as long as you don't plan on reclining (I rarely do in a daytime flight)"
Cons: "A little overcautious regarding seating the cabin crew because of possible turbulence, but better safe than sorry, I suppose. However, it is a common occurrence on this particular leg, so don't board knowing you might need to take a "break" before you get to Atlanta."

Pros: "crew was great"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The airlines bumped us up to better seats without us asking!"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "The crew was great"

Cons: "All seats were booked, no covid-19 social distancing"

Cons: "Never heard the announcement for boarding resulting in me missing my flight. If it were just me I’d say all my fault but there were 12 people that did not hear the announcements."

Pros: "Everything was super comforting"
Cons: "The flight are always subjected to delay ... I didn’t like that..."

Cons: "Bigger snack"

Cons: "4 hour delay for no reason! I’m never flying with American Airlines again!"

Pros: "There was a lot of entertainment choices"
Cons: "Seats are so crammed. Plane was late."

Cons: "Flight was delayed and we almost missed our connecting flight, but the pilot was on our side and we made it just in time!"

Pros: "Someone got sick but the crew helped her right away. An ambulance was already waiting for her. Flight despite this arrived on time."
Cons: "Snacks"

Pros: "Like clockwork. New plane."

Cons: "the fact that they rushed everyone only to have you wait in the ramp"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight got delayed which caused me to miss the last flight for my connecting flight."

Cons: "Baggage claim took over an hour. Wasted so much time."

Cons: "2 published delays and then another 30 minues waiting to push away from gate. Almost 2 hours late"

Pros: "This plane is much better than the American Airlines plane I usually get stuck with on my 8 hour direct flight from JFK to MXP. Please stop using the Boeing 767 jets and only use the Boeing 777 for flights across the Atlantic. I would like to fly American more frequently but not if I think I'm going to get stuck with the planes from the 1980s where there's no personal TV, no place to plug in my phone or electronics to charge unless you carry around a car charger, which I definitely don't, and there's no WiFi on those planes either."
Cons: "Boeing 767 Jets! The food is blah - Delta and Emirates is better. The entertainment needs a bit of an update. Or maybe I just fly too often..."

Pros: "On time! That pretty much says it all. I think American did a great job at everything they had control of."
Cons: "Having connecting flights that seem like they are miles apart. I’m sure there is a good reason for this but it is annoying to have to change concourses at these huge airports."

Cons: "Nobody gave us an explanation on why it was late"

Pros: "Flight was delayed then cancelled. No explanation, apologies, or provision for accommodation was made or offered!"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "I don’t like having to pay for luggage or upgraded seats, WiFi. All money makers. Wish every airline could be like southwest."

Pros: "Roomy seats"
Cons: "Long wait for clearance"

Pros: "Food was edible, flight left early, arrived early in philadelpia, the customer service helped out it my baggage."

Cons: "Luggage allowance policy was not clear, so that they can try to charge passengers extra fee. Airline blames on one another when it comes to connecting flight if we purchased a one stop flight"

Pros: "On time and what was advertised. Considering that the flight was after Thanksgiving and very full, we still had a good experience."

Cons: "Delay due to mechanical glitch which should have been checked before boarding"

Pros: "Customer service in general"
Cons: "Boading could be smoother. Some customers had a hard time to put a luggage into the upper compartment and blocked a passage."

Cons: "Not a fan of baggage fees especially this high for only one checked. Next time Southwest Air, I guess."

Pros: "Good meals and accommodating crew"
Cons: "Tight seats, not a lot of legroom"

Pros: "The flight to LA was fine, but the screen shot of the flight details didn't match what I purchased with a return date a day sooner. American Airlines blames Alaska airlines and they blame Kayak.. it's a blame game that only looks good for everyone but the consumer!"
Cons: "5hrs in LAX due to flight change without notification.. American Told us to go see Alaskan vise versa, but the conclusion was no seats were even available for the flight that was changed a day earlier.. Alaska Airlines solution: 2 additional days of travel and $700 per ticket x4 tickets. Finally after 5 hours of trying to figure it out some resolution to the mistake $500+ with additional stops. Ridiculous to say the least, I had to pay for their mistake"

Pros: "El ser una marca conocida"
Cons: "Tanto el vuelo de ida como de vuelta fueron cancelados ambos vuelos. Siendo el de regreso de una forma abusiva cancelando para el día siguiente sin considerar el pago mínimo de hotel y comidas. Sin considerar los gastos ocasionados por las pérdidas de reservas en hoteles."

Pros: "Everyone operated fast and professional"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "New Airbus Dreamliner is a nice plane."
Cons: "Not much"

Pros: "The flight was early morning so the plane was basically empty. And the flight was short due to short distance and tail winds. Crew is always friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Plane seats are EXTREMELY cramped. We were early but had to sit for 15 minutes waiting for the plane in our spot to leave."

Pros: "The food was pretty good."
Cons: "Old 777-200. not very comfortable and the entertainment is very sub-par"

Pros: "Permiten facturar el equipaje de mano ya que el vuelo suele ir bastante lleno."
Cons: "No hay tolerancia con los kilos facturados. El equipaje pesaba 51 libras y me hicieron quitar peso para después aceptar que facture ena puerta de embarque."

Cons: "The plane was only 3 seats across, one seat, aisle, two seats. Very tiny!"

Pros: "On time and great professional staff throughout"

Cons: "Wi-Fi, as usual, was not working. Plus, there were no screens in the seat, so passengers have to rely on their own smartphones/tablets/magazines/books to keep entertained."

Cons: "It was repeatedly delayed."

Pros: "We were delayed taking off from Denver due to snow storm. The crew was communicative and accommodating."

Pros: "The crew was polite and professional. Thanks"

Cons: "Late departures both ways."

Pros: "was"

Pros: "Will bw traveling to chicago then to iowa"

Cons: "This is about my 3rd FC experience where the 2nd meal option was not availbale for everyone. other than that drink service was prompt and bountiful!"

Pros: "Nothing I wasn't on it I missed it because of you"
Cons: "My plans for travel were ruined because when I arrived at the airport for my flight I was told it was too late to check my bags, therefore I had to be placed on a later flight which then set off a chain reaction where I lost my rental car and missed various meetings at the event I was supposed to be at my final destination. The main issue was that when I purchased my ticket throughout Kayak YOU NEVER SPECIFIED THAT I SHOULD CHECK MY BAGS 45 MINUTES EARLY OR I WOULD LOOSE MY FLIGHT. YOUR LACK OF CLEAR INSTRUCTION SCREWED UP MY TRIP"

Pros: "Staff was friendly. And,Handicap assistance was good."
Cons: "Check in was very complicated & inconvienent! They wouldn't accept my gift bank card. Then we had to pay for a card because they didnt accept cash either,& nowhere,to get,cash. My husband had to leave &get money out,which took a,half hour-no easy way to check in."

Cons: "I did not like sitting on the runway for 40 minutes I did not like to have to run to catch the next flight I'm 63 years old I do you dont like to run to the next plane"

Pros: "Friendly atmosphere"

Pros: "The people on the flight with me"
Cons: "The flight attendants were cocky and then my flight was worse overall my flights in all were horrible with united . I've never been sick on a plain and I got so sick for the landings"

Pros: "No-thing!!!"
Cons: "I was traveled no with my wife and my son to Des Moines andI documented our 3 bags in Mexico City and "the first surprise" was that they charged in Mexico n I he front desk about $27 USD per bag...it seemed that the bags were also passengers and " needed to pay"... The big other surprise was when we got to Des Moines and realized all the bags were opened!...my wife's jewelry was stolen!!!! UNITED AIRLINES SUCK!!!!!"

Cons: "The plane was delayed again n again from ,7:30 pm to 11:45pm"

Pros: "'Nuff said"
Cons: "Everything else was great!!!"

Cons: "lack of storage space overhead. cramped seating. old plane. no wifi or entertainment."

Pros: "The flight I was able to get on eventually had pleasant crew and arrived early."
Cons: "Where to start.... they "delayed" my flight for 11 hrs from 5:55pm to 0700am due to "weather" so no hotel or food vouchers would be issued. THEY ALSO SAID "don't bother going stand by for the other two flights leaving this evening as they will be overbooked or "cancelled" as well. When I walked to customer service they stated it was NOT cancelled but rather "rescheduled due to operational issues" then they put me on stand by for the next flight leaving in a couple hours. I boarded that flight only to be pulled out of my seat the last second before the gate closed saying there was an error and there were two "Fishers" and I was in one of thier seats. After closing the door and departing the gate the agent said "whoops" I guess it was a small child that was to be on the parents lap. "Sorry" as the plane left with an empty seat that I had been sitting in. After a long conversations with the supervisor they finally were able to book me on the last flight out that night arriving in DM at 12:15 in am. I had to dig my original boarding pass out of the garbage as they had refused to put me in first class... an upgrade I had paid for. After being lied to repeatedly about status of plane and bumped from flight due to incompetent gate agent I was able to finally procure a $10 food voucher (a beer is $11 at the airport. There are additional bungles including lost luggage and more to this saga but I think you get the picture."

Pros: "Our first leg of the flight was great."
Cons: "My husband was upgraded to first class, but they wouldn't upgrade me. The rep at the boarding station was very, very rude as well. We will reconsider when it's time for the next trip. We do have a choice on who we fly with."

Cons: "Grinding and whining while plane in taxi- extremely loud frinding when landing gear engaged and disengaged"

Cons: "No help from the flight attendants before we landed to inquire to see if the connecting flight would wait - just MINUTES!"

Pros: "Flight was on time; both ground and flight crews were pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "They were out of ginger ale, my beverage of choice :-)"

Pros: "Quick bording, organized. Smooth flight."
Cons: "On board entertainment lacked horribly unless you are willing to pay extra. And the on flight snack was a joke."

Pros: "Excellent responsive service start to finish."

Cons: "Late night flight to begin with then mechanical issues so more delay which made it later. Chicago ground folks were very good at keeping us informed on the status."

Cons: "The air fare was way over priced."

Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "It landed in Des Moines 30 minutes early."

Pros: "Flight, when it the air, was fine. But..."

Shortly after that announcement it was announced a gate change and further delay to 11:30. Then another delay to 12:20. finally departed."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Fast boarding, pleasant crew, nice leg room!"

Pros: "I have metal leg braces. The staff was helpful getting me from terminal to terminal. They were very helpful."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was booked canceled then changed and rebooked without me knowing for a month later I was supposed to leave June 5th not July 5th I had to pay a extra $409 this trip cost me $781.00 for no reason I will Never use kayak again."

Cons: "Flight was delayed several times"

Cons: "Waited too long for bags at baggage claim."

Pros: "Quick boarding, efficient out of the gate."

Pros: "3 hours delay"
Cons: "No referment"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats are beyond uncomfortable, sat in someone's gum, crew was rude, food was horrible and beyond tiny and expired, bathrooms were completely trashed, worst flight so far"

Cons: "Frontier airlines delayed and then cancelled and offered no help with re booking so I could make it to my family. I had to purchase a brand new ticket with s better airlines to be able to get home for my mom's cancer treatments."

Pros: "The flight was on time, the airplane was new and clean, and the seats were comfortable. We enjoyed the crew and our bag was waiting for us when we got to baggage claim. What more could one ask for on a no frills flight?"
Cons: "Everything exceeded expectations for a low fare no frills carrier."

Pros: "The price was cheap, but the cost was great."
Cons: "The very 1st words I heard out of the mouth from the very 1st frontier employee I met was "this is going to be a bad day". When they checked my bag they never said thank you, for us flying with frontier. When boarding, the "bad day" employee treated the customers as if they were cattle. Not one stewardess smile the entire flight. And when I asked to stretch after using the facilities only 1 time during the 4 hour flight, I was told (in a very sarcastic voice) "as long as you don't come into our area!" Followed by a faded whisper of "shiiiiiiit". All this, plus a 3 hour delay. What more could you ask for? Next time, I'll pay a little more for the customer service."

Pros: "Second flight in a row that had been delayed"
Cons: "Flight was uncomfortable"

Pros: "Arrived early"

Pros: "The crew seemed cheerful."
Cons: "Slightly disorganized during boarding. Delayed departure. Miss informed about arrival time. Extremely unfortable seating. Food is more snacks than solid nutrition and even the snacks were hardly dispensed. Cabin became over heated, could smell jet fuel."

Pros: "The direct flight ."
Cons: "Waiting in the same line for bag drop off with people that did not use the Kiosk. The restrictions on times to check in and when the last bags could be dropped off. I prefer to arrive early and go through the process before most people arrive. There should be a bag drop off line separate from the general line. The trays on the plane were too small for me to work. The space between the rows was too restricted to open my lap top."

Pros: "Everything ran smooth and the crew was very nice"
Cons: "I didn’t like all food and drink was for purchase"

Pros: "The one moment when someone attempted to help me before a coworker told him to stop because they had “too much to do”"
Cons: "I can’t remember the last time I had so much trouble with a flight. I do remember when frontier used to be a decent airline but now it just feels like a subpar soviet airline. Despite the fact that no one seemed to be aware of what was going on and making everyone with electronic passes wait an extra 30 minutes, my checked bag (which cost more than the flight) arrived with minimal damage and I’m still in one piece."

Cons: "They had to fly in 2 plains to try and get us out. They didn’t offer meal vouchers until 51/3 hours into the delay."

Pros: "the flight attendants were fantastic"
Cons: "Very very late, no updates from the airline."

Pros: "The crew attempted to make the flight better by terribly singing Christmas songs, which only reminded me that I would miss my family Christmas due to late flight."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for over an hour. My foot is broken and I was jammed next to window. It was was swollen before we could even take off."

Pros: "Price was great"
Cons: "but seats are very close together - not a tall person but sitting up straight my knees hit the seat in front of me. Uncomfortable fit!"

Pros: "The flight went well and the customer service was great."
Cons: "We were 1 hour delayed but luckily I was in no hurry"

Pros: "I feel this airline does an excellent job boarding at the beginning and end of the flight."
Cons: "Bags took a long time to be delivered."

Pros: "Boarding, Flight departed on time, arrived early. These all went very well. Give me a flight the boards smoothly, leaves on time and arrives early all the time and that is the most I could ever hope for while traveling."
Cons: "Food, Entertainment and Comfort are no longer a factor and all airlines stink at these."

Pros: "I'm retired.I'll seriously consider driving. The whole airport/airline industry is in trouble."

Cons: "Very friendly"

Pros: "being on time"
Cons: "had to pay for snacks and pop, etc Free would be nicer."

Pros: "Left on time, arrived early"
Cons: "Long wait for bags"

Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in DSM for an hour!!!"

Cons: "45 dollar for carry on made me feel like I was getting screwed!"

Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"

Pros: "It was a direct flight to Phoenix from Des Moines and a good price."
Cons: "The boarding area was moved. No one was at the new gate to tell us we were at the right place. The monitor was not updated also so we would know we were at the right gate. I did not realize that not even a free beverage was provided on this over 3 hour flight. Everything had an extra charge."

Pros: "The price is extremely attractive and Frontier was non stop! Personal carry on item is free and the size was really generous. PLUS they have an excellent credit card rewards program!"
Cons: "I wasn't expecting the seats to not recline at all unless you purchase a stretch seat. I had the assumption they would still recline the typical amount. I don't like that you have to pay for your seat choice after the flight is already paid for."

Pros: "I loved all the room I had, and how polite and expedient the crew were. There was no wasted time."
Cons: "I was sat next to a newborn baby -- and I paid extra for that seat. Felt like that wasn't worth it."

Cons: "WAITED ON TARMAC ON ARRIVAL IN DENVER 1 HOUR AND WAITED 45 MINUTES AT DENVER FOR THE PLANE TO ARRIVE AND 1 HR IN DENVER FOR THE LUGGAGE TO BE LOADED ON THE PLANE...EVEN THOUGH THE LUGGAGE WAS ON THE CARTS SITTING NEXT TO THE PLANE WAITING TO BE LOADED ONTO THE PLANE."

Cons: "Hidden Fees, thankfully we could afford the extra $20/seat. On the first leg of the flight it was 100 degrees in the cabin, and there were NO beverages available at all. We were told there would be a 5 minute wait on the tarmac before unloading...we've been here for 45 minutes with no end in sight."

Cons: "Seats dont move...why do first 3 rows have seats that recline?"

Pros: "Crew was great. Everything went well"

Cons: "Took over 30 minutes to check a bag."

Pros: "Visiting with them"
Cons: "Waiting 3 hours"

Pros: "Great professional service by ALL employees"
Cons: "Only thing that left me questioning was boarding order. I was zone 4 and by that time most passengers were seated. My seat was an A by window and 2 passengers had to get back up for me."

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Flight staff were wonderful about making up time and doing what they could to make things better"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour due to traffic control and the airline wouldn't give us an estimation of when we would leave - I understand that it was up to traffic control but having flown I knew it would easily be an extra hour since the last flight hadn't made it to the gate. Once we arrived we learned only four bags made it for the entire flight. Overall it was a cheap flight but you had to pay handsomely for bags and food/beverages"

Pros: "The flight in general was OK."
Cons: "There was a delay in the flight, but there was no one at the gate to tell passengers what was going on.."

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Charges were added for checked bag and carry on bag on Frontier Airlines. The airfare rate was not satisfactory once you add on the additional fees for baggage. We changed gates at Denver airport 3 times. Flight #156 was supposed to leave Denver to Des Moines at 445 pm and we boarded the plane at approximately 615 pm and were on the plane on the ground for 2 hours and 15 minutes. That is too long to sit on a plane; there were microburst winds in Denver and then they lost our manifest also. We arrived at our destination in Des Moines about 4 hours later than scheduled. I will not recommend Frontier Airlines to other people."

Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour without any notification. There were two employees at the gate desk; neither of them communicated any info, even when questioned by multiple passengers. Frontier's site didn't update and the arrivals board at the destination airport displayed incorrect information."

Pros: "Clean plane, fine crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed 50 minutes. 3 gate changes. The last one without text notification"

Cons: "Flight was delayed at the gate and no one made an announcement until after the origiNal departure time had already passed and people began inquiring. Then they just called all zones so the boarding line was a mess."

Pros: "Crew was much more personable and concerned that my luggage would not make it on board because of the late departure from my previous flight."
Cons: "Same no-frills flight."

Cons: "Although the flight price was fairly inexpensive it cost me about half of the flight cost just to take my carry on. The plane was either new or updated and the seats were not comfortable. I am in the process of booking my next flight and it will not be on Frontier"

Pros: "Not a single thing. Horrible experience completely."
Cons: "The crew was rude and disrespectful. The entire trip was uncomfortable, ridiculously over priced for the quality of the crew and horrible all around."
