Airline reviews

Pros: "Clear announcements, nicely stated mask rem8nders, center seats open"

Cons: "Socially distancing worked well on the plane because the middle seats are not occupied, snacks are bagged and the head flight attendant was funny and gave an inspirational message on the PSA at the gate and when we landed."

Pros: "Smooth and fast."
Cons: "Headphones should be free. Also some free food would be nice."

Cons: "Delaying a flight by 2 hours for crew issues is ridiculous and even more do not alerting me to the change before I was at the airport. Terrible"

Pros: "Handing by any cap was great to get us on the plane on time."
Cons: "The plane we got on time to board was delayed enough to miss our connecting flight, so delayed another 3 hours when missing the next flight."

Pros: "Crew was great, food was tasty"
Cons: "A little bit more leg room and newer sits"

Cons: "Wider seats, more leg room"

Pros: "While biased since I was in First class, everything was enjoyable and as expected of a first class experience. The free Wi-Fi on this flight made it extra special- can’t wait until its standard on all flights!!"
Cons: "Only real complaint is that Delta doesn’t seem to restrict size of bags taken as carry on and the time wasted but some trying to squeeze their obviously oversized bags into overhead compartments is painful."

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "No major delays and able to make my connection. It was a standard flight without too much to report on"
Cons: "wish there could be less trash generated on airplanes. I notices that Flight Attendants on this flight separated the plastic cups from the trash, and I hope this got recycled."

Pros: "great crew!"
Cons: "luggage. what a nightmare. I waited 30min for my luggage (after a delayed flight) only to be told by a fellow PASSENGER that some of our luggage was directed to a FRONTIER CAROUSEL. I then had to wait by that carousel till I found it. so much for "bags in 20min guaranteed""

Pros: "boarding was on time"

Cons: "Seats are so small. Flight was delayed."

Pros: "On time flight courteous service"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Crew was good, plane was clean."
Cons: "Don't like the Comfort plus seats that have the dividers vs basic arm rests."

Cons: "No food, just snacks and no place close to the gate to eat."

Cons: "We barely made it through a storm. Super scary. Even the pilot said we "barely made it" over the speaker. I would rather be hours late getting home than feel like my life was possibly gambled with. I have my pilot's license so I am not unfamiliar with having to create an alternate flight plan when inclimate weather strikes. However, this was scary. My boyfriend quietly had a panic attack while we were on board. Would not fly Delta again because of this experience."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Boarding was fast and efficient, nobody bumrushed."
Cons: "The non-reclining seat right next to the bathroom door opening should not exist. I was miserable there; I swear everyone on the plane made sure to take a dump on this <2 hour flight. Also none of the windows on any of these small planes line up with the actual positions of seats and it sucks."

Pros: "Quick and easy"

Pros: "Good service. And good features. Enough space in seats in first class."

Cons: "It was very hot and did not cool down"

Pros: "Friendliness of attendants. Quality of snacks."
Cons: "Hip room. Leg room."

Pros: "Seating was ok but had better for a premium coach."
Cons: "The tv screen. Touch pad was not working properly on both legs."

Pros: "Flight attendants were wonderful, seats were super comfortable"
Cons: "Lateeeeeeee so so so so lateeeee"

Pros: "great flight free movie going down"
Cons: "no free movie/tv coming back"

Pros: "Once we boarded the plane, we still had to wait for the pilots to arrive and then for them to run through their pre-flight checking before we could get underway."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the departure gate moved at the Atlanta airport 3 times to 3 different concourses before we were finally able to depart around 1 hour later than scheduled."

Pros: "I liked the legroom and the seat"
Cons: "No entertainment screen, no real food, I don’t care how long the trip is, I got first class, I expect first class service."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable and cold. Wasn’t space didn’t serve anything no WiFi or tv like other flight"

Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly and the plane was half empty."
Cons: "When are the Airlines going to start serving a decent coffee on board? It does not matter Delta is now serving Starbucks. Something they do that messes up the whole thing, probably overheat for too long."

Pros: "Very comfortable and great crew."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Leo was friendly and helpful, a wonderful presence on the flight."

Pros: "We were delayed one hour in Mexico city but when we were in flight the crew definetly made up for it. The crew served us a great meal with drinks of choice as quick as possible followed by a hot cup of coffee cookies and kept coming around to check if we needed any thing els. Way to turn things around Delta."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats that are far too close for tall peolle"

Pros: "Free movies helped make the flight go faster. Also when possible my girlfriend and I were seated together despite having seats assigned at the gate."
Cons: "Being in zone three meant checking bags on every flight. That's a side effect of picking the cheapest tickets so not really Delta's fault but it says that I have to put something here."

Pros: "the service in general very nice"

Pros: "In-flight entertainment"
Cons: "It was uncomfortably warm throughout the three hour flight."

Pros: "Quick and easy flight. Took about an hour and twenty minutes."

Pros: "The trip was short."
Cons: "I didn't care for my engine only window view. Nor did i like that the crew barely served refreshments (other airlines have zero issues with this on a DTW-MDW or ORD with a larger plane and equal amount of flight stewards). The route was also akin to being on a rough patch of sea for an hour."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Cons: "There was a loud ringing sound at boarding & it continued through the flight. Very annoying. Hurtful to my ears."

Pros: "Trip and flight crew excellent!"
Cons: "I understand that they couldn't deliver luggage during lightening, but my luggage and clothes were soaked!"

Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"

Pros: "Great service and amenities for a low cost"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The plane was large enough to be comfortable and to moderate the effects of turbulence more than the smaller plane I was on to NYC. The flight attendant was very warm, fun and personable. I enjoyed being able to watch a movie on my phone through the go go app. It was a late flight so I appreciated the lights being turned off."
Cons: "I wasn't happy with the seat selection being made for me at the gate--I was in the loudest part of the plane in the rear. I wish there had been a better selection of snacks, my flight into NYC had many more options."

Pros: "I felt the entire flight crew was there to make my trip more pleasant. The plane was new and had free video and usb outlets to charge my devices."
Cons: "Nothing, truly an excellent experience."

Pros: "Loved the onboard entertainment and the flight attendants were great."
Cons: "I travelled w/ one adult and two infants internationally and could not book the infants' tickets online had to do it over the phone. When we got to the airport we had to pay $255 for 5 bags, that's almost another ticket."

Pros: "The crew were AMAZING and made the flight so much better. Boarding was easy. I also love that the pilot acknowledged the Service men and women on our flight."
Cons: "The older plan didn't have some of the perks that I expected from Comfort +... No conformed headrest, no USB plugs... I paid extra for Comfort + and expected some of these things."

Pros: "The plane wasn't ice cold, which was a nice change."
Cons: "I couldn't close my air vent unless I wanted to hear a nice whistling sound for the duration of the flight. So I just left it open, no big deal."

Cons: "On landing it felt like we crashed into the runway. I think it would have been helpful to have the pilot tell us what happened."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Horrible seats"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "ages they don’t came"

Pros: "Arrived on time"

Cons: "Entertainment system for myself and my wife failed after an hour."

Cons: "you didn't respond and we were unable to take the flight."

Pros: "Service was great in 1st class"
Cons: "The movie Black k Klansman was great but the system had a problem. Not sure if just my seat or the whole digital video system. Every few minutes it would get choppy and unwatchable. I had to rewind and then it would be fine for a while. Like a video buffering problem."

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: "On time and quick boarding."

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Prompt on time service."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Entertainment was boring"

Cons: "Good service ! Window seat!"

Pros: "Not enough luggage space for regular number of passengers on board"

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "Delay!!"

Pros: "The service was excellent Very cleaning airplane The people the travel was super good especially the children."

Cons: "Did not allow me to sit in the location I had been assigned."

Pros: "On time and smooth"

Pros: "Crew was really friendly."
Cons: "WiFiwas not functioning. They ran out of food. Boarding was delayed."

Pros: "Because we took a bus to the plane boarding was fast - no boarding groups just whomever got off the bus first (me) got on first (me). I love the small planes with one seat on the left and 2 seats on the right. It's great when you don't know if you want aisle or window, you can get both in one."
Cons: "Newark Airport is the worst, and that is not United's fault. However, I'm new to the experience of 'boarding' onto a bus that then takes us to load onto the plane from the Tarmac. Small plane - no frills like wifi, magazines but still a 2+ hour flight."

Cons: "Baggage took a long time to come out. Meanwhile they had the buzzer going non-stop to announce the bags for the entire time from when we got there until they started the belt. It’s around -10 degrees outside so the guys getting our bags are saints and the delay is to be expected, but the buzzer..."

Pros: "The connecting flight from Chicago to Traverse City was very nice due to the leg room in the exit row I purchased at additional cost."
Cons: "The seats on the flight from Albany to Chicago were the new smaller type which were horrible for a 6,5 260 lb man in exit row economy seating. Dogs on board which was bad for my allergies. This seems to be the case more times than not. I’m asthmatic and very allergic to animals. I know, it’s all my fault..."

Cons: "It was three hour deley in Newark Airport because the plain didn't arrive on time."

Cons: "Cramped, not enough room for carry-ons"

Pros: "crew was friendly. flight was on time. everyone at united, from the people checking me in and taking my bags to the flight attendant were incredibly friendly. I appreciated that--so many workers make a bad situation worse by being rude to their customers. I truly felt that United workers were happy to help."
Cons: "the size of the plane. wow, is it small!"

Pros: "I was put in a hotel. That is the only positive... literally the only positive."
Cons: "A 3 hour 55 minute mechanical delay, boarding and deplaning, caused a windfall effect to our other connections causing us to miss everyone that we needed to make it home to Alaska. I will not be getting home until almost 4 days after my original travel date. Missing work as a teacher is tough, and I planned it with plenty of room for safety, only to have United fail me. Weather issues are something I can forgive, but a mechanical issue combined with the weather snarl in Newark has caused endless stress. Bags couldn't be found, no information on new standby flights, and false hopes of being put on Alaska air tomorrow from a united agent last night. All in all my worst experience in as long as I can remember flying."

Pros: "The flight is on time.... the food is good.... the service is excellent...."
Cons: "Lack of snacks..."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They left without notification"

Pros: "Slightly delayed for slow baggage handling at gate"

Cons: "Bumped from two flights due to weather and delayed due to pilots coming in late"

Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Air lines can't keep a schedule."

Pros: "The plane arrived safely in Newark"
Cons: "The plane left 7 hours late - for a 45 min flight. I got on another flight (only becuase I sought a solution to arri9ving 7 hrs late) but still arrived several hours after my determined arrival time. No compenatio or apology."

Pros: "There was a problem at Newark airport on my way back. The united agent was terrific to successfully secure a different route for me so I could get back home. Many thanks,"

Cons: "5 hr delay"

Pros: "The space in my seat feels bigger than other airlines"
Cons: "I couldn't switch the internet that I bought to my phone from my computer without signing up. It would have been nice to put in my name and have it transfer"

Pros: "everything was good"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "For the second time this trip our seats were changed and we were separated seating both of us with strangers after we had chosen our seats at the time of the ticket purchase"

Pros: "Wheelchair service was so helpful for my mother."
Cons: "Over an hour mechanical delay at ALB. We barely made it to our connection. Pretty tense considering I was with an elderly confused mother who would not have dealt well with a delay from Newark to Denver."

Pros: "Fight was on time. Crew very pleasant. No complaints"

Pros: "Cold in hallway for manditory carry on check & anxious that I may not make next flight, . Newark to Ft. Myers"

Pros: "Went as expected"

Pros: "Excellent crew"

Pros: "Love the non-stop service from Newark to Madison."
Cons: "What can you do? This model of jet is just a shuttle train. Only a two hour flight, but the snack is a bit chintzy. Not up to Lufthansa standards."

Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "There was absolutely nothing to like about this trip."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed 2 hours due to a ground stop at the next airport. Upon finally boarding the plane for a second time, we sat at the Albany airport for abou 40 minutes. When arriving to the Newark airport, there was communication issues and no way for us to get to a terminal so we were stuck on that plane for 2 hours. While stuck on the plane my connecting flight got delayed twice then cancelled. Once finally in the airport, I waited an hour in line for customer service only to tell me they couldn't even put me up in a hotel because it was air traffic controls fault, even though NO other airline was down. They gave me a $10 food voucher, apparently that would fix everything. I had to put myself in a $130 hotel room and being a broke college student I wasn't expecting that. I will never fly united again, it was he worst experience I've ever had and one of the most stressful days. This airline is horrible."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "I liked getting a snack and drink. I guess all planes are crowded. I didn't have any carrying luggage so I didn't have to worry about overhead storage- which would have been a problem."

Pros: "Nothing good at all"

Pros: "Crew were friendly. Got us in early (efficent)."
Cons: "Boarding is a free-for-all. No ammenties (charged for tv, internet, and food)."

Pros: "NOTHING THIS FLIGHT GOT CANCELED"
Cons: "all flights from Madison to Chicago ended up being canceled, but they did not tell us until around 430pm. I ended up having to take a bus after waiting in the airport for 4 hours. If I had taken the bus as soon as I arrived I would not of missed my job interview."

Pros: "The flight was cancelled three times. Understanding that can happen, it's the fact that United didn't do anything to make everyone relaxed about having the flight delayed. The crew and pilots were very understanding and relayed reasons for delay while ON the plane. The air on the plane was very cold."

Pros: "leg room was not too bad"
Cons: "I needed to ask questions about my flights because of delays and not a single person acted professional at the gates, quite rude responses. On each of my 3 plane changes there was only one attendant actually smiled. Another read from a sheet of paper like she didn't know what to say. Two others never dmiled or said you're welcome after I thanked them. Im used to the friendly staff on Southwest. They are great!"

Pros: "Did not realize that I was not confirmed. I was traveling for a medical emergency and needed to wait to be cleared."
Cons: "Plane was tiny and claustrophobic"

Pros: "Cheap tickets"
Cons: "Seating is uncomfortable, everything costs money, takes a long time"

Pros: "I liked the price and the time of departures."
Cons: "I didn't like that my flight got canceled and rebooked 3 different times. My final flight got delayed 8 times. I, a 22 young woman traveling alone, got stranded in Washington traveling from New York at 1am because of weather. United didn't give me money for a cab, couldn't help me with a hotel since they were all full and told me they wouldn't be refunding my pet deposit or help with my next flight out pet deposit. I wish I could give them less than 1 star overall. They didn't care about my well being or safety at all. Very disappointed United"

Pros: "The Flight was a little delayed but the captain and staff were very apologetic and we made up for lost time during the flight. Had plenty of leg room and was attended to regularly. Staff was very personable and kind."
Cons: "I've flown several times with many different airlines. I have no serious complaints about United, they have their game on point. If anything were to be said it would be to have less broadcasts about everything going on during the flight, not that it's a burden either but sleep is a little hard pressed when you want to hear what it's about."

Pros: "Plenty of leg room but I had the very back seat so it doesn't lean back"
Cons: "The very last seat doesn't lean back because of thewall."

Pros: "Flight a lot easier then flight up to NY. Didn't have to ride with left over storm conditions. Smoother flight."

Pros: "The flight was delayed so they put me on a direct flight with an earlier arrival time..... So nice."

Pros: "ontime"
Cons: "At least one check-in baggage should be free for the price."

Pros: "United crews use to tell me you couldn't preboard with children but they must have changed that policy because they allowed it this time."
Cons: "They always ask a second time for the boarding pass after the first agent scans it. They should tell you to keep it out if they are going to review it a second time."

Pros: "The timely fashion that the process took to complete, traveling was good and easy that day!"

Pros: "Absolutely Nothing!"
Cons: "The whole nightmare of flying on United worst travel ever. never again"

Pros: "Left on time - arrived on time"

Pros: "Zooooooommm"
Cons: "Where the asciago?"

Pros: "See above comment"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "3 hour delay out of Albany. My flight was canceled out of Newark and had to wait about 23 hours for next flight. I wasn't offered hotel, food or lounge to accommodate such a lengthy delay. Airport's should be able to accommodate delayed passenger's with better entertainment and comfort."

Pros: "The crew was amazing"

Pros: "On time reliable."

Pros: "Prompt, professional, and smooth landing. Very friendly staff"

Cons: "Great flight, boarding in Newark on Saturday, a nightmare getting through long security line."

Cons: "No entertainment or food, the worst plan ride ever"

Pros: "On time/ early"
Cons: "The tray table was tiny."

Pros: "We would not fly Frontier again unless it was a day trip."
Cons: "We booked this flight as part of a four week international trip. We were flying with quite a big of luggage, all of which they charged us massive fees for without leniency. Our ticket costs ended up being the same as other airlines who would have provided better service/facilities."

Pros: "Everything wsa fine except no wifi"
Cons: "get wifi. It's 2019, ffs"

Cons: "More room in seat"

Pros: "The crew was wonderful."
Cons: "Knee space is tight for someone with long legs."

Cons: "It would be more efficient if they called the boarding passengers by row. Nothing worse than having to stand 5th in line in that skinny aisle watching someone in the 3rd row trying to get their carry-on in the overhead bin when my seat is in the 24th row. Or is that because some passenger was not listening to directions...?"

Pros: "Fastest most drama free flight ever"
Cons: "No fast menu foods in madison. I honestly wanted a day did burger for the first time ever but had to head to town first"

Pros: "The plane was clean the flight crew was polite. No real issues once a pilot arrived in Vegas."
Cons: "I heard that this happens a lot with Frontier. Everyone arrived about 2 hours before the flight before receiving the notification of the delay. The pilot announced he was contacted last minute in Denver to fly to Vegas and cover the flight."

Cons: "Flight delayed - missed important meeting"

Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "The flight boarded when it was supposed to be taking off."

Pros: "On time, early in fact"
Cons: "Tip during drink service"

Pros: "Quick service"
Cons: "Expensive bags and small amount of room on the plane"

Pros: "The pilots flew the plane well and the crew gave a good preflight tutorial."
Cons: "Delayed bording time by over 1/2 hour, 4 crying babies, snippy/jerky flight crew and check in personel also charged me $75 on top of the $45 bag charge on my originating flight because my bag was 8 lbs too heavy, yes a whopping 58 whole lbs."

Pros: "This was the only flight out of 4 that the stewardess smiled and was helpful. Flight 160. I wanted to cry when I was actually treated like a person rather than a cattle call."
Cons: "I barely caught this flight as my connection was an hour late. I wished I had time to grab some food or drink. I went all day without anything but two small glasses of water (1 per flight). My anger though resides in my cheap 250 ticket actually ended up costing over 450. Traveling by air is becoming only for the elite of society. Next time I fly, I will travel with an airline that costs are upfront."

Cons: "I am a 75 year old female and I did not hear the overhead page for early boarding, as I am a little slower to get on the plane and would appreciate the extra time to get into my seat. When I went to board the plane (zone 3), another passenger and his girlfriend wanted to sit together and refused to move out of my window seat, even after I told the gentleman I paid for that seat, including extra ($6) for the window seat. I felt I was bullied me out of my seat that I paid extra money for and because then another passenger in the other row yelled at me to "sit down" so I would not hold up the other passengers from sitting down in their seats. I was forced to take the seat the gentleman's girlfriend must have had in the middle of the two other passengers in the other row across from where I was scheduled to sit. I know I could have called the airline stewardess but felt pressured to stay where I was because of the other passenger I had to sit next to who had yelled at me earlier. I wish there was more of an attempt to let elderly passengers board first."

Pros: "Flight leave on time and arrive early in Madison"
Cons: "No food/snack included with fare"

Cons: "They made us get on and off the plane, first they said leave your bags on the plane, then take them off, then reload and put them back on. They didn't know what they were doing. On top of that, the baggage fees are outrageous. I will never fly frontier again."

Pros: "A bit annoying with add on fees. Just a bus ride basically."

Pros: "The crew was pleasant overall and my inflight experience was fine."
Cons: "The check-in process was terrible. I had checked in and had the tickets available on my phone but just needed to drop off a checked bag -- and it took over an hour and a half to do so! I was only able to drop off the bag when "last call" for my flight was announced. I arrived at 6:15am for an 8:35am flight and made it to the gate just in time for boarding. Unacceptable."

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "The flight attendant talking throughout the entire flight. It was an early flight and wanted to sleep."

Pros: "Everything was great! My fave airline!"
Cons: "All good! Want to fly Frontier in May if I can!!"

Cons: "The extra charges are ridiculous. I paid out close to $100 on top of the ticket charge. Ridiculous. Never again and I'm telling everyone I know. Unbelievable. I wish I had known more about it. Also, it's nearly impossible to talk to a person for information. I don't know how you stay in business, let alone try to expand.."

Pros: "cancelled our flight for 5 days and offered zero compensation"

Cons: "I left for the airport 2 hours before my flight because it takes 30 minutes to get there. My flight was on-time when I left for the airport. When I got to the airport it was cancelled. WTH! No weather issues in either the from or to location so not sure why there was not more advanced notice. HORRIBLY handled by Frontier. This has happened too many times and I will NOT be flying Frontier again. Terrible planes and very, very unreliable."

Cons: "We were delayed because of mechanical /electrical problems. They allowed passengers to get off the plane. They finally admit they can't fix it. Now we have to wait while the people who got off get their bags again. Then we have to switch dates. Our flight was supposed to land at 7:19 it was after 11 o'clock p.m. my mother had the same experience on Frontier on Wednesday flying out to Denver. Frontier needs to get their act together it will be a long time before I book with them again."

Cons: "Canceled flight and no flights till Friday [4 days away]. Frontier incompetence."

Cons: "Noises sales pitch."

Pros: "flight was smooth and on time"
Cons: "My luggage didn't make it with me on Wednesday. I have to wait until Friday."

Pros: "The flight was exactly like any Delta or AA flight minus the frills at a very reasonable price. I added a bag & seat choice package for $100, but even with that additional cost my flight was $200 less than it would have been."
Cons: "The seats were pretty much very fancy, padded lawn chairs, and the tray tables that fold out from the arm rests are pretty much useless, but these are minor complaints compared to the value of the flight."

Cons: "I was notified about our flight delay this morning - at least six hours before boarding. There was no explanation of why, which doesn't always happen, but odd that alternate arrangements couldn't be made during that time. When it came to the planned boarding time, there was no update. The city name was removed from the board and a new one added. Still no update. We started boarding about 20 minutes after the delayed *departure* time. Passengers from the next listed flight kept shuffling in line, based on the confusion of the destination update displayed. It was a mess. Saving money on flights was not worth this hassle. Beyond the flight itself, here are some other gems of the experience: *upon arriving at the airport, at least half of the kiosks weren't working. There were hundreds of people in line, and five counters staffed. *when we arrived on our previous flight, we were early! However, there was a plane at our gate...and it had mechanical problems. We sat on the runway for at least half an hour."

Cons: "The $17 price for a seat when i checked in. Why would that not be part of the ticket price when i bought the ticket."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I waited an hour and a half in line only to have the gate changed and for you to not let me on my flight. Horrible experience."

Pros: "timely boarding and arrival. Courteous staff."
Cons: "Upon arrival, baggage took over 15 minutes to be available to passengers and it was at different carol that we were told on plane. Frontier flight from Madison to Denver a week earlier was late to board. Time was made up in flight only to remain on tarmac for an hour and twenty minutes. It seems there is a shortage of staff. Was not informed of additional charges for carry on baggage."

Pros: "Drinks."
Cons: "I don't like that they charge for everything. Seat assignment for two people traveling together, carry-on luggage and checked bags (note that checked is actually cheaper). They don't have gluten free food. In Madison, at a certain point there are no staff at the ticketing counter. They are at the gate and cannot help you."

Cons: "Don't mention a mechanical issue on a flight I just got off of, that's a little scary boarding the same plane. Tight, uncomfortable seats, no entertainment, only free water. Very poor, not the same Frontier I flew a few years ago."

Cons: "I was seated next to a lady with a dog. Why is a dog on the plane? She called it a service dog, not comfort dog. Had no identification collar stating either. I paid extra to sit closer to front of plane and this is what I get?? I have also have allergies so didn't appreciate being next to a dog. It sat on the ladies lap and looked at me with its tongue hanging out and panting while the lady slept the entire flight. Planes are full of germs already without adding the mess of a dog. Too many people are taking advantage of this whole comfort dog thing. New rules and regulations are needed. Snakes can get certified as comfort animals. What's to prevent someone from bringing such an animal for their comfort? When people board a plane it is expected that it will have human beings in it. Anything else should be known ahead of time. What about people allergic or afraid of animals. Please think of your paying customers first. My flight was $400. I should get better treatment than a $75 dog."

Cons: "Changed flight, Sat on runway for an hour. Missed my bus, had to wait 4 hours for another bus. Got all my stuff stolen while on the bus."

Pros: "Nothing, I was just glad it was over. The staff weren't awful but I had no interaction with them other than to day goodbye."
Cons: "First impression was that the tray table is the size of a hardcover book. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. The seats seemed like they might be doable but right away the armrest became a source of pain. After an hour in the seat of became a huge pain. By there time we landed another hour later my back and butt were very sore. I will not voluntarily ride in another am Frontier flight again."

Cons: "We were delayed on the plans for 2 hours. Very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Great flight crew."
Cons: "Two hours late."

Cons: "Delays and gate changes"

Pros: "Pricing"
Cons: "Couldn't pick a seat prior to check in without a fee"

Cons: "Apology is at least"

Pros: "Great Crew! This guy was a stand up comedian and hilarious! Kept us totally entertained!"
Cons: "All the additional costs for baggage. Yikes! A cheap flight can become very expensive."

Pros: "The only thing I liked was the very funny attendant. He lightened the atmosphere and made me smile."
Cons: "I couldn't check in early because you wanted to charge for the seat I already paid for. Then, you charged me for a carry on. Who doesn't have a carry on? The attendant at the gate was extremely rude. The seats were uncomfortable. The plane made a high pitch squealing noise that made it impossible to even talk with my husband. You charged me for carry on bags on the way home but not on the way there which made for a horrible surprise. I find charging for carry on bags appapalling. I paid hundreds of dollars for the flight and you can't even handle a carry on bag without charging me? I will never fly Frontier again and have already spread this around on Facebook."
