Cons: "Ran out of snacks by the time they got to my row"
Cons: "flights all on Delta - about one a week for 3 months straight - and yet when Delta cancelled my flight and re-booked they did not give me any upgrade or loyalty as I saw it - I had paid extra for Delta Comfort and they told me the flight they re-booked me on simply did not have any comfort available. However, I was not the one canceling the flight and re-booking - that is their problem and after so much loyalty for years I feel like I should have gotten some kind of upgrade for free...If I have to cancel - I have to pay fees - but if they cancel - I lose ...despite being a very loyal SkyMiles customer. I am quite disillusioned with Delta now and will have to look around to see what other airlines there are now - and my entire family - and what kind of loyalty they give to their loyal customers. It needs to be a two-way"

Pros: "There was a short delay but it was done professionally and I got a notice about it. I had nice people seating next to me and the craw was ok."
Cons: "It was upsetting that they didn’t have earbuds/headphones as my iPhone headphones can’t connect to the TV so I had to watch a movie without sound. You should have extras. I also wish they had a banana for us, it’s better than pretzels. And cheep and healthy."

Pros: "Very annoyed with the direct tv. No gluten free option for food/snacking."
Cons: "comfortable seating. nice staff. on time flights."
Cons: "United Express flies out of Terminal A at Newark (EWR) and routinely they do not have Precheck lanes open. Despite flying on the Saturday after Thanksgiving they only had one mixed security line open. When I asked TSA they said they simply weren't staffed to have a Precheck line open. Everyone was working diligently but this happens every time we fly United out of Newark. Traveling with 2 small children it is incredibly frustrating to have to go through the full security line, take off our shoes, and take all of our electronics out of our bags."
Pros: "I got to my destination and didn’t die."
Cons: "Poorly marked gate. Late boarding time. Sat on shuttle for 20 minutes before they took us to the plane. Then we sat on the plane with the heat blasting and no air available. Flight was delayed due to maintenance."
Pros: "That my suitcase was stowed"
Cons: "Waiting 11 hours for the flight"
Cons: "They could have used the bathroom to stuff a few more people on this flight. Whoops, no, bathroom not clean. Tray broken on seat. Seated in last row and asked to close bathroom door of it opened during takeoff. Seated next to very large passenger who wanted to share my seat. Sat on tarmac for 30 minutes waiting to take off. For this, I paid $650."
Pros: "Not really impressed"
Cons: "Although the flight was scheduled to depart quite early, it was delayed twice. Weather was good, but incoming flight was late. Then there was no cabin attendant-40 minute delay. Few amenities in Terminal A of JFK."
Cons: "The gate agent for United at Newark was very rude and dismissive. Would not answer any of my questions or anyone who attempted after me. His attitude was very poor and seemed to not care about his job. Plane was late arriving in Portland Maine."
Cons: "The flight was fine, but my flight was cancelled on the 29th and the agent who helped rebook my flight was abrupt, then I get to the airport on the 30th and the flight is delayed another 2 hours. Of course it was all "weather" related, so no help from the airlines. I'm not a satisfied customer. I would have flown Delta if it was possible."
Pros: "On time...."
Cons: "Bigger plane than usual.."
Cons: "Long wait on the plane on the tarmac."
Pros: "Flight attendant very friendly and helpful Seat row layout of 1 and 2 On time Legroom adequate Smooth flight"
Cons: "Cabin temperature became too cold Seats small Engine noise drowned out announcements of pilot and flight attendant Narrow uneven disembarking ramp at Portland Jetport Lack of clarity about flight gate in Newark. I checked in at Terminal C and had to take a shuttle bus to Terminal A"
Pros: "On time quick flight."
Cons: "No legroom, snack a joke, no entertainment."
Pros: "Flight staff was wonderful."
Cons: "Newark Airport. The terminal was probably 60 degrees. Navigation signs were the least helpful of any airport I've flown out of or into."
Pros: "Finally arriving at the destination."
Cons: "We were stranded in Newark with little to no air conditioning in 90 degree heat. Our flight was delayed 9 HOURS. I lost an entire day of my family's vacation because of United Airlines and their massive blunder. They said it was because there was no air conditioning, but at the same time they said their crew clocked out and we had to wait for new personnel to man the plane. I find it hard to believe that this couldn't be foreseen and avoided. By the time we finally got our crew, we then had to await for a storm to pass, and then 40 other planes had to take off first. All United offered in apology were $10 vouchers that expire in two days, and a free drink on the plane."
Pros: "On time and friendly to Portland as always."
Cons: "Please read above--I was standing at the gate waiting to board when the gate rep told me and another passenger there was only one seat left--on a flight I was confirmed on! The other passenger said he had a family obligation and the rep handed him the last ticket before I could get a word out. I felt so disrespected and like my business and money meant nothing to United. Then began my saga to get to Portland. Unbelievable."
Pros: "There were empty seats and the very polite flight attendant offered for me to move without me having to ask."
Cons: "I arrived at my final destination and walked to baggage claim. I was just standing there waiting when a young girl walked by me in a uniform and said rudely and almost annoyed, "do you have a question". I replied that I was waiting on my bag. She then said these are it and I said so my bag has been lost? Without any empathy AT ALL she again, rudely and now most definitely annoyed said Do you have your bag tag? I said yes and she proceeded to walk away to a corner office. I assumed I was to follow. She took my tag, no communication at all from her, I said what are you doing and she replied I have to file a claim. She then proceeded to tell me that Newark Airport was horrible and never travel through there if I know what's good for me. This was extremely unprofessional. I was simply wanting some guidance from her on what to expect etc. I had to ask her what my next steps were. She handed me a flyer and said if I had any questions to call baggage information listed on the pamphlet. I left. The next day at about 1 p.m. I called the number and the update said my bag had left the airport and was out for delivery. Keep in mind that I had to work the next day after the airline losing my bag and had to purchase shower items etc due to them being in my lost bag. Portland jetport and my home address is less than 40 minutes apart, yet my bag did not arrive at my home until 8:30 p.m. and I'm also not confident it would have ever arrived because I called around 7 p.m. and spoke with someone who called the delivery service to ask their ETA. I paid $25 to check my bag and yet it was lost. What did I pay for?! If I can help it, I will NEVER fly United again and I'll be certain to tell everyone I know about my experience with this airline."

Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Nothing stood out"
Cons: "Late departure once again"
Pros: "The cost."
Cons: "Attendants didn't know how to work Directv sets so no one on plane had programming. One attendant thought it was a touch screen and it wasn't. Another said she would reset the system but never did."
Pros: "Very friendly and comfortable"
Pros: "The service was awesome!"
Pros: "It was ok, one gets what one pays and I understand that."
Cons: "Some padding on the chairs would have been welcome."
Cons: "I recommend for being punctual"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Pros: "On time reliable."
Cons: "The check in/bag drop process is terrible. Took 45 min. No explanation. No help."
Cons: "First time on Frontier, not a bad experience even though some of the comforts are not there. But the price is good if you need no frills"
Pros: "I like the convenient flight from Islip to RSW."
Cons: "Every bag is an additional charge, most every choice of seat costs more. There are no TVs, minimal snacks and beverages have to all be purchased. Snack tables are super tiny, seats do not recline."
Pros: "Prompt, professional, and smooth landing. Very friendly staff"
Cons: "Great flight, boarding in Newark on Saturday, a nightmare getting through long security line."
Pros: "Nothing. Maybe the leg room."
Cons: "Everything. Delayed due to frontier poor logistics. Bad updates by staff (ie none), rude gate attendants and rude flight attendants throughout. We did make it an hour late and bags arrived but this felt like a banana republic airline."
Cons: "No entertainment or food, the worst plan ride ever"
Pros: "The crew members were all very nice... The seats were appallingly tiny... and those tiny little excuses for trays are ridiculous! You could take out the row with only 2 seats on each side, and spread the rest of the seats out an inch and it would make a HUGE difference for those of us with mobility issues... Sad that passengers are crammed in that plane like sardines just so the airline can make a extra couple of dollars!"
Cons: "A better, more diverse "menu" of items to be purchased would be nice. We just "settled" on a couple of items to get something in our stomachs. But... with our drinks, and a small snack, there was absolutely NO room left on that dinky little tray. Again... just squeezed in that plane so the airline makes a few extra bucks on the extra seats they've squeezed in! We will NEVER fly your airline again... EVER!!!"
Cons: "The frontier flight is affordable but then you get charged for every little thing like both a checked bag and even a carry-on bag. They didn’t offer a drink of soda for free"
Cons: "Free food and baggage"
Cons: "The flight came in early which was great, but it Took 2 hours to get our luggage. Apparently there were not enough Frontier personnel."
Pros: "Friendly employees"
Cons: "Delay and no one staffing the counter."
Pros: "Price, on time"
Cons: "Seats, no free seat selection, sat next to stinky toilets"
Pros: "non-stop, pilot made up time of initial delay due to medical, price"
Cons: "That they charged me $65 for a carry on bag ..the person told me an amount went to the machine get a card get charged $5 extra for the card go to the counter they tell me a diffrent amount have to get a diffrent card more money..i made a facebook post to never fly with this company ever again"
Pros: "Efficient, cost effective."
Cons: "Chairs don't recline, food for "purchase" only."
Pros: "Nothing, the flight staff weren’t even very friendly. I asked what the charge was for a coke and he said $2.99. He never mentioned I could get a cup of water. Just lame"
Cons: "The new seats are horrible, $2.99 for a can of coke? Overcharged for seating and baggage. Beware of their hidden costs that you see after you book. I’ll avoid Frontier as much as possible. Just know you will pay $38 for a checked bag each way, $30 for a carry on Aeschylus way and a minimum of $12 for a seat each way. A $320 flight ended up costing $490"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable (they also didn't decline). It costs $45 for a CARRY ON! There was ZERO TVs, barely a tray table. Will never fly Frontier again."
Pros: "I liked that I got home safely"
Cons: "Everything else, mainly additional $120 I had to pay in addition to ticket price for a seat and carry on. Rip off!"
Cons: "LATE DEPARTURE"
Pros: "flight was in 30 minutes early. Flight crew was excellent"
Pros: "Got me where I needed to go"
Cons: "Everything is an extra charge after purchasing a spot on the passenger list. Luggage charges are exorbitant."
Pros: "Ponce on the flight, Capt. Diamond was kind and kept us informed on progress. Crew was very nice despite irritable crowd and less-than-ideal circumstances."
Cons: "Flight delayed 7 hours, did not leave until next day and after waiting in airport (and then another 30 min on Tarmac post arrival) airline didn't offer to make it right in any way. Was not offered complimentary beverage svc at any point. Charged $40+ for 2nd bag (so only allowed personal item as carry on) each way - so my partner and I spent an additional $160 on bags alone. This was NOT disclosed during booking process."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled for no reason. Please refund me."
Pros: "The original gate agent was very rude when I asked her to confirm if I was at the right gate. There was confusion because the flight # and the gate # were different."
Cons: "My partner had a change of plans and cancelled her flight so Frontier could resell her seat. In the process the agent also erroneously cancelled my flight. I did not discover this until I arrived at the airport two hours from home. After an extremely frustrating 2+ hours on the phone with customer service I finally got to Edwin Watkins in the corporate office who made it right by paying for a flight on an alternate carrier. So a big shout-out to Mr. Watkins, but very poor grades for customer service prior to that who offered my non-solutions such as flying out the next day, or a full refund which would have then required me to pay astronomical last-minute airfares on a different carrier. Also frustrating was being told repeatedly that the agent would be back on the line in five minutes and then hearing nothing for 20 minutes or more. Like some other reviewers, I also was not aware of the fee for carry on baggage. I don't object to this approach to pricing, but I think it needs to be very explicit up front. Spirit Airlines uses a similar pricing model but they do a much better job making it all clear to the customer up front. Finally, I gather there are some seats that recline while most do not. I was right behind one of the reclining seats and felt pretty crowed. Presumably this would be less of an issue in rows with non-reclining seats in front."
Cons: "Passengers are required to pay to get a small cup of soda or juice. Even the long airline tradition of a handful of peanuts costs money."
Cons: "Check in people were very rude and tried to charge me for the same bag that they didn't charge me for on my flight from Charlotte. When I asked to speak to a manager she gave me a number that didn't connect to me anybody. When I asked for a number that would connect me to a person, she told me to "figure it out" Then they tried to tell me that the flight was full and I'd have to buy a seat. I ended up getting on the plane without paying for my bag or extra seat so basically they were just trying to get me to pain for unnecessary things"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "I had to pay separately for my seat after purchasing my flight as well as having to pay for a carry on bag separately... don't try to make me pay for stuff I need like that!"
Pros: "I liked leaving the plane because it meant the flight was over. Frontier is the worst"
Cons: "Frontier is, by far the worst airline I have ever flown on."
Cons: "The seat suck and 40 dollars for one checked bag cheap flight but you pay for everything"
Pros: "The crew was relaxed, and handled problems quickly"
Cons: "No reading lamp"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and the actual flight time was as advertised."
Cons: "Very long wait to check in for the flight to check 1 bag. Waited over 30 minutes in line. There were even 2 lines going and both were equally slow. This airline charges for carry-on's. It was cheaper to check 1 bag, but the wait was too long. Everyone was on board the plane and we had to wait 30 minutes to leave because "paper work" wasn't complete for the flight. This delay seemed unnecessary. Only water was complimentary on the flight."
Pros: "You set the expectation of what you pay for."
Cons: "I concede creature comforts when I buy value. In giving those up, I should not have to concede timeliness. 1.5 hours late on a flight that was suppose to leave @ 11:59pm flying East. Makes for a tough next day little to no fault of my own, except I bought a cheap ticket. BTW - those that complain about an uncomfortable seat, no snack, no in flight movie or other luxuries - BE QUIET! Frontier is an economy airline helping working class go to places more often than "the big vacation"."
Pros: "Seems to be more leg room in coach than full fare airlines. Important to me as I'm 6'5"."
Cons: "Was surprised at gate with the fees for carry on. Pretty much wiped out any price advantage gained by flying this airline."
Pros: "The price was cheap. Boarding was easy. Pilots were very nice."
Cons: "No entertainment. Have to pay for everything even just water which makes no sense. Crew did not want to be there and was not helpful. Took forever for people to get off much slower than other flights."
Cons: "O couldn't take the flight because the cost of my luggage exceeded the costed my fight & was not allowed to cancel for refund of any kind."
Pros: "the way they treat from begning to end of flight."
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Nothing. Awful experience."
Cons: "Flight 5 hours late. No explanation or apology. Measly $10 breakfast coupon offered. No lunch coupon. Stuck at DEN from 7am until almost 1pm. Gate crew in Denver were rude and incompetent."
Cons: "Flight was delayed longer than I was informed. A flight attendant was rude. Because I was uninformed about the extent of the delay I didn't have transportation from the airport upon arrival and had substantial unexpected costs."
Pros: "This last leg of my flight was better than the rest. The crew was friendly enough and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Overall Frontier is a bare minimum airline and that's why tickets are less expensive. Rather pay more to get some amenities."
Pros: "Quick boarding, helpful courteous crew!"
Cons: "Horrible from Cleveland to Ft. Meyers. Not one crew member smiled and acted like enjoyed their job!! Told at check in my carry on which I have carried on 3 prior times without cost would again be no cost. Ready to board and told had to pay 30 dollars. It held the plane up trying to expedite the pay process and the attendant was so rude!! I will never fly Frontier unless last resort again."
Cons: "Late flight listed as on-time"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "The quality of food choices has really declined. No access to internet, small tv, movie (international flight of four hours). This airline is more like a spirit air where you are charged for everything extra, but the ticket price is more than spirit air. Really felt nickled & dimed with the charges for carry on, seat choice, sodas, etc. I will try to not fly frontier in the future if there are other options available."
