Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew and pilot were great."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely PACKED during the peak of a global pandemic. Completely irresponsible to not have people spaced out by at least one seat."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "The WiFi would not connect for two of my flights. I wanted to watch movies"
Pros: "I was very appreciative that the cabin crew went through the cabin prior to take off to check that everyone was wearing a mask properly (covering mouth AND nose). I flew United a few weeks ago and had to politely ask the person next to me both on return and departing flight to make sure the mask covered thier nose. A lot of people in the cabin weren't wearing masks properly and the crew didn't seem to care."
Pros: "Nothing. Will never fly American again"
Cons: "Better customer service at the gate."
Cons: "there was no social distancing"
Pros: "Yes the crow was good"
Cons: "The wifi should be free to use without paying for it"
Pros: "One member of the crew who focused on the back of the plane was pleasant and kind during a one hour delay on the tarmac."
Cons: "One member of the crew who focused on first class passengers complained about having to pick up trash, having to stay in Birmingham, and was just unpleasant. The AA system was down in Charlotte which effected everything. The attendant at the gate was very, very short with several passengers. There was not enough AA ground crew at our destination to allow us to embark. They couldn’t move the jetway and unload bags at the same time so we just had to sit there for 30 minutes. At 12:30am."
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "More snack options"
Pros: "Nothing. It’s a terrible airline. Seriously, don’t book with them unless you’re desperate or you want to have an anxiety attack."
Cons: "American isn’t my preferred airline for obvious reasons (delays, notoriously bad service, old planes, and a lack of amenities like WiFi and tv’s), but now I’ll never spend my money with them again. They took me off an already delayed flight after I’d already boarded to examine my smart bag. I know that lithium batteries can’t be taken in the underbelly of the plane and I knew my bag would likely be checked at the gate (why I removed the battery and left it at home in the first place). When they asked me if I had a lithium battery in my bag I said “no.” They then gate checked the bag and allowed me on the plane. After everyone had been boarded (half an hour after we’d been scheduled to take off) they then called my name out on the speaker. I had to then de-board the plane and re-explain to staff that there was no lithium battery in my bag. The staff didn’t believe me citing the infallible logic: “there are ports so there’s a battery.” I told them again and again that the battery had been removed and the charging ports—while there—were inert as they weren’t attached to the battery. STILL, I had to remove all of my clothes from the bag, and open every single compartment (of which there were many) for them to allow me to get back onto the plane. They were telling me that they might have to “rebook the flight” if my bag couldn’t get on. I don’t think I need to explain how agitated/terrified that made me."
Pros: "I pay $30 more for my bags"
Cons: "I pay $30 more for my bags,"
Cons: "Phoenix airport is horrible for on time departures. Always."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "EVERYTHING! We were supposed to leave at 7:30 pm and we ended up departing at 9pm"
Cons: "I was annoyed when I was told I would have to check my carry on because there was no more room in the overhead compartments. Then as I was walking down the aisle to get to my seat I saw a lot of room in the overheads."
Cons: "Waited on the tarmac for over an hour before departure with very little explanation."
Cons: "Service was excellent"

Pros: "No need to drive from OKC!!!"
Cons: "Flight crew was an hour late to the flight, whereas customers were waiting for far longer than that."
Pros: "Fast and easy service"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "At the end of three flights to obviously be understaffed and to have luggage take an hour and fifteen minutes is disrespectful and shows how AA is callous about it’s passengers needs."
Pros: "Staff very professional, everything else went as planned. That's all one needs."
Cons: "We had a hard time hearing (clarity of speech) announcements over the intercom at the gate & on the plains (specially when the captain spoke). Nothing life threatening, but wouldn't want to miss something important."

Cons: "Food was bad on all 4 legs of trip"
Cons: "No complains"

Pros: "Got me to where I'm going safely. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Flying is painful"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "We Departed 3 hour late because the pilot was missing. I lost my connection in Miami and I’m waiting here for almost 24 hours to take another flight. Very bad experience!"
Pros: "The flight left on time - I do appreciate that."
Cons: "We were forced to check our Uppababy Vista stroller at EWR departures that we hoped to check at the gate. Needless to say this made it difficult to get our toddler through security. At baggage claim only half our stroller was there - they had disconnected the seat from the wheels. Luckily we spotted what looked like a similar frame to ours at the gate when we landed. It then took another forty minutes for the baggage claim office person to go through security, to the arrival gate and back to baggage claim."
Pros: "one more bag"
Pros: "Las aeromosas muy amables y profesionales."
Cons: "Los asientos incómodos que no funcionaban el cambio de posición. El pago de sobrepeso escandalozo; por 10 Libras $160 más extra fees...."
Pros: "I liked that you could watch TV and movies from your personal device without a charge."
Cons: "That the flight was delayed."
Pros: "It was comfortable, nice staff and had a meal as well"
Pros: "Great attendants. Easy ride. Easy take off, easy landing."
Cons: "We departed late due to something going on in the runway. No free wifi option."
Pros: "Getting to my seat was overall the best experience. Out side of the finally walking onto the plane and sitting down, over an hour late, it was less than mediocre."
Cons: "If the plane was on time and didn't run an hour and 20 Ish minutes late, it would have been fine, except for the blinking over head reading light that would flash in my face every 20/30 seconds that could not be turned off being due to, as the flight attendant said, "they all do that"."
Pros: "Solo que a la 1:10pm le comunique al sobrecargo del vuelo Avianca #928 Lima _ salvador 1010 1: 20 pm hora local me di cuenta que se quedo el anillo de matrimonio en el paso de migración en la bandeja, el sobrecargo me di una instrucción que debía hablar con el encargado del Salvador la Srta Geaninia Gomez indica que como no es pérdida dentro del avión no se hacen responsables, lo que no estoy de acuerdo que me digan eso ya que es trayecto del vuelo que estaba realizando voy a tomar medidas para presentar un reclamo ya que es un valor sentimental ya que ni me dejaron ir a ver estando casi 40 minutos y sentí que no me ayudaron por los menos con una llamada en el departamento."
Pros: "Priority boarding provided by my credit card"
Pros: "The staff was completely nice (except when I was trying to rebook my ticket and I felt like there was no understanding of what I was going through)."
Cons: "There was a strange situation outside of LGA wherein I sat in a car for nearly an hour once already at the airport. I don't know what was going on but we were trapped there and it caused me to miss my flight. There were no other flight out and I ended up having to book an entirely new ticket. I believe that LGA or American Airlines should refund my expenses, because otherwise it makes me not want to ever go through either again."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "No meal. Only a bag of pretzels and one drink. Even half a sandwich would have been acceptable."
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Cons: "Movies broken has to change seat"
Pros: "On time"
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"
Cons: "Everything is ok"
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: "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 was great. In a good mood and accommodated my requests. (For complimentary water and a trading card to remember my trip)"
Cons: "Seat was awfully uncomfortable. I’m only a slim built 5’9” woman and my knees were indenting the next seatback. And the aisle was too busy for me but that could have been fixed with paying for a window. I do not recommend flying in these economy seats for any longer than 2.5 hours."
Pros: "Hassle free"
Cons: "The seats are terribly uncomfortable."
Pros: "I loved the price of the tickets, crew was friendly, all except one flight attendant on the return flight sitting in the back of the plane. She was rude, snarky and seemed to be very put off by the passenger to include myself, but maybe she was just having a bad day. Food and drinks were good, a bit expensive but that's expected on a plane. Fold down trays were significantly smaller than any other plane I had ever been on, but that didn't bother me in the least."
Cons: "I didn't like that if I wanted to ensure that my 13 year old son and I had seats next to each other I had to pay an additional cost (lowest cost of that being$25). I do realize that the way Frontier keeps their ticket prices so low is that they charge you for every little thing. Honestly I was surprised they didn't charge me for a napkin. You do feel nickeled and dimed, after the purchase of the ticket itself. All in all I have to say I would fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Water/coffee should be free"
Pros: "I liked that the staff was friendly and the tickets were affordable"
Cons: "I didn’t like that there was no complimentary food or beverage options."
Cons: "Lost my bag after they charged me to put it on the plane. Charged you for drinks and snacks other airline give you free. Plane was 4 hours late and not one apologized for the inconvenience or lost luggage"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing from start to finish."
Cons: "They $45 for a carry on is just tacky. The seats are hard and they don't recline. There is no music, movies, chargers and not even a free peanut. $400 equals I should gone with top tier airlines. The staff even had attitude. Not friendly at all and most of them a chip on there shoulder. Pravly because they know what crappy airline it is. Please, please, please don't fly with this airlines."
Cons: "Almost a 3 hour delay."
Pros: "Great price!"
Cons: "The seating is even tighter than normal coach, but my flight was only 2 hours so it was no big deal. I don't think I would take a longer flight with seating that tight."
Pros: "That it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Felt claustrophobic"
Pros: "The baseline flight was inexpensive."
Cons: "After landing, we had to sit on the runway for 40 minutes, because frontier has only one gate at Austin International, and here was another plane still at the gate loading. Basically, they incorrectly scheduled the flights. As if that wasn't annoying enough. After landing, we had to wait an additional 50 minutes to receive our luggage! In all, it was an hour and a half after landing that I had my luggage in hand and finally got to leave the airport. You must pay to select a seat. You must pay to have a carry-on ($35 to $60 depending on when you pay) or any luggage at all. Basically you must pay a little extra for everything. The seats are a piece of sheet metal with 1/4" of padding, do not recline, and have less leg room than any other airline in my experience. There was an empty exit row seat, and as I am tall (6'2"), I thought it wasn't unreasonable for me to ask to move. When the flight attendant walked by, I had to say excuse me several times, each time louder until I was virtually shouting. When she finally acknowledged me and I asked about the seat, she said sure, you can move, for $50."
Pros: "Easy booking"
Pros: "They offered to move people who looked crowded. Remember to prepay for luggage whether carryon or checked. Costs more at the airport."
Cons: "Small seats, but that is with most or all airlines."
Pros: "Great flight crew. Boarding was quick and painless. No frills airline so that's why I rated food & entertainment low."
Pros: "Delayed. Lost bag. Horrible service. Hidden fees. Will never use Frontier again."
Pros: "It was a comfortable flight. Checking in was very easy and it was overall a great trip. Thank you Frontier!"
Pros: "This is supposed to be a lower cost airline but by the time you add in the luggage fee (you pay extra for both a carry on and checked bag) it amounts to the same cost as other higher priced flights. There is no entertainment or snacks included, although sometimes these can be purchased on board. The flight itself was good, on time departure, even arriving slightly early. But we sat on the tarmac waiting for a gate for quite a long time (low cost, low priority) by the time we got off, connections were missed or very tight."
Cons: "On time. Boarding was a smooth process, although could be improved."
Cons: "Seats don't recline- $45 charge for a carryon bag? Staff seems burned out- just going thru motions. Like it's their last job or no other airline would hire them- their doing us ( the customer ) a favor because they went to work that day- the captain seemed fine. Only came on when had to. There were no air sickness bags- the turbulence was very bad. The woman next to me barely made it to the bathroom in time- because on the the lavatories was not in use for a maintenance issue. Overall very poor experience"
Pros: "The planes were clean and well-maintained. Boarding was fast and easy and the crew was polite and professional."
Cons: "Seats were a new design to save space. Not as comfortable and no recline. The tray was very small, about the size of a paperback book. Not conducive for drinks or much of anything. Additionally baggage fees were disappointing. $25 for a checked bag and $30 for a carry-on bag."
Pros: "Left on time arrived early can not beat that. Security was Very Good. Crew on plane was also very attentive. Great trip coming and going. Pat Flaherty"
Cons: "Had zero problems. NONE."
Cons: "long wait"
Cons: "no reclining seats, no complimentary coffee, extra charges for seats and carry-ons. Would have been nice to know this before checking in. Policies are deceptive. I thought I was getting the cheapest flight, but in the end, it would have been cheaper to fly United."
Pros: "Great price, direct flights"
Cons: "a night flight with seats that do not tilt back means not sleeping or uncomfortable sleep"
Pros: "Cheap last minute flight"
Cons: "They charge you for everything! Carry on bag, checked bag, picking your seat even refreshments costs you money! The seats DO NOT recline at all! It was a very uncomfortable ride. Unless it is a true emergency, I won't fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Nothing, I hate flying frontier"
Cons: "Complete inattention to detail, awful customer service"
Pros: "Will never use Frontier again!!"
Cons: "Will never use Frontier again!!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours with no reason provided. Once aboard aircraft, waited on runway for an hour before taking off. After landing, waiting at a standstill before taxiing with no reason provided. Absolutely horrible experience."
Pros: "Cheapest flight ever gotten can't beat a $75 dollar round trip flight! Crew were very nice"
Cons: "Frontier hidden fees for bags seat changes food or drinks. There was the last minute hour delay to Philly not the crew's fault though. seats tight and cramped."
Pros: "That I got home safe and alive."
Cons: "My flight was delayed on my way to Denver by about an hour. I was delayed getting home by OVER 2 1/2 HOURS! And one and a half of those hours was in the tarmack due to gross negligence. I talked to my friends some of which are travel agents and all said the same. That Frontier is a nightmare and to never deal with them. From now on I won't."
Cons: "Me and my kids were heading to Memphis Tennessee for a Family Reunion. We were scheduled to leave Friday, July 29 and return on Monday, August 1st. I received a text message late Thursday the 28th stating that our flight was going to be delayed 3 1/2 hours coming out of San Francisco. That meant we were going to miss our connecting flight in Denver to Memphis. I asked the Frontier Representative on the phone on the 28th, when was the next connecting flight coming to take us to Memphis? The Rep said, "the next flight leaving from Denver to Memphis will be on Monday." I said we are going to miss the entire Reunion because the Reunion ends on Sunday and we were planned to return on Monday. The Rep did not offer any other alternatives to make sure we got to Memphis. As a result, we missed our valuable trip to see our family."
Pros: "Nonstop service between PDX and DEN. Frontier and United are the only carriers that do. We did have outstanding service from the rep when we checked our bags. But right next to her was a cranky rep, so I must say service is uneven."
Cons: "Check in process: The Check In button on the website was grayed out and the process would not continue. On the mobile app I had trouble finding the screen to check in for the return flight. Took me a few hours to figure it out and I was frustrated. Lots o' fees!"
Cons: "6 hour delay, terrible customer service, ridiculous bag fees to include charging for all carry ons, etc. they even charge you to pay for your seats just to sit together and there were only two of us! You may think their fares are the lowest but in the end you pay more monetarily and emotionally. Avoid Frontier. We are from now on."
Cons: "It took over an hour and a half for our bags to reach the baggage claim. I could have carried my own bag from the plane way faster than that. Made us miss our arrangements in Denver. Poor service."
Pros: "Checking luggage and seat fees added an additional $112 dollars to my ticket price. For that much money I feel like the service was a little over priced."
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "By the time I paid for all the "EXTRAS" like checking one bag and a seat with some leg room, I could have bought a ticket on Southwest. Again this is not an airline for someone like me and I really miss Midwest ."
Pros: "Simply everything went smooth. Flight attendants were professional. Seating was OK ... a bit spartan ... but OK ... at least it was very clean."
Pros: "Seats don't recline Flight Attendants were nice Plane was clean Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "$2 for a coke - Really Ridiculous carry on bag fee Waited 45 min for my checked bag Can't check in and select a seat without forking over another $27 2.5 hour delay on departure Low cost airline wound up being more expensive than the big airlines - I won't fly them again Seat Trays too small to hold a laptop Why is "value" not rated above - that would most definitely be poor"
Pros: "The crew was professional."
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable so it makes it difficult to sleep. Ours was a red-eye so that was not good."
Cons: "They charge me more for bags"
Cons: "The tv and free food"
Pros: "Very tired trip. Nothing I like."

Pros: "Nothing to like about Spirit"
Cons: "Everything. It's not a secret"
Pros: "I wish there were more snacks for domestic flights"
Cons: "Food amenities"
Cons: "They have their own random process of checking in, boarding etc. If you try to interact with a person in any way they charge you for it. That's not how it works for other airlines, and their communications isn't particularly clear about this so charges are surprising"
Pros: "Nothing, was horrible"
Cons: "Better service"
Pros: "ticket price"
Cons: "baggage charges. carryon fees, outregous"
Pros: "Is spensive"
Cons: "Lot of noisy customers but Spirit does a good job"

Cons: "Too many "hidden" and extra costs"
Pros: "Very bad"
Cons: "All. Price too high for kind of service"
Cons: "It's too bad. When I buy the ticket you must showing them. I never know about that. Why I need pay over$50 a small baggage?"
Pros: "I was impressed with the professionalism and the space on the plane. The staff was great, I am looking forward to flying again."
Cons: "I didn't like to delay."
Cons: "Invalid ticket from online check in when going through security. Unclear boarding process"
