Cons: "Games on the tv were okay. Tetris would be a nice addition."
Pros: "Flight was early into New Orleans"

Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Wi-Fi not working or hard to get to work. Flight was delayed by an hour and service was very rushed."
Pros: "The service on our flight was absolutely amazing, the food was surprisingly great, and the long ride was as comfortable as it could have been in an economy booking."

Cons: "This was an easy flight. Nothing bad."
Pros: "Being able to watch videos."

Pros: "Great flight . Even got here early"

Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."

Pros: "New aircraft A320"
Cons: "Late,"
Cons: "1 hour flight delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"
Pros: "The gate person was very accommodating"
Cons: "It was over 2hrs late due to mechanical problems. Seems to be the norm."
Pros: "Got there before ETA"
Cons: "Concourse was VERY FAR away and trains were not running☹️"
Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."
Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"
Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."
Cons: "The gratis food offering isn't healthy - those bread pretzels, versus the almond & tomato juice I had on the next flight, with ...can't remember the name."
Cons: "Seating was tight"
Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"
Pros: "Personnel and crew handled the problem in a professional manner doing everything in their power to make the best of a bad situation. Another plane was provided within a reasonable time frame."

Cons: "No space."
Cons: "My ears have never hurt so badly on a flight before."
Cons: "Delayed and baby crying and kicking behind my seat."
Cons: "prob nothing more with in reason , could have been done - how do you eliminate fellow stupid humans ?"
Pros: "It landed early."
Cons: "Some complimentary snacks. No extra fee for online check-in. It’s cheaper to you to allow people to check themselves in online than make people check in at the desk that was woefully understaffed. Made it a terrible experience for all"
Pros: "Decent leg room."
Cons: "Delay boarding, delay on tarmac after leaving gate, no complimentary food offered, need to pay additional for ANY seat you choose, need to pay for baggage even carry on, took over an hour to get baggage"

Pros: "Nice staff and plane. Loved the USB outlets for every seat."

Pros: "Very friendly staff with quick on time flight"
Cons: "I probably should’ve taken first class. Very cramped even for economy. No on screen entertainment"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Flight departure was late. No entertainment options."
Cons: "Flight was late leaving to MSP and on the return flight to San Francisco, we had to sit and wait 40+ mins just to get into the hanger. It was late and very disappointing!!! They don't serve any snacks and didn't come around with refreshments except once. They charge for carry on's, $40.00!! Huge rip off! They charge to rent DVD player. I will NOT fly with them again. Delta has all the above mentioned for free, they will be who I fly with from now on, they are MUCH more professional and customer service oriented and on time!."
Pros: "Staff was genuinely very pleasant and the boarding process (mind you the flight was half full) was fairly quick. Ha - then again, no one really had carry on baggage, so kept things easy ;p"
Cons: "I booked with Sun Country because rates were significantly cheaper than with Alaska and my priority was to book a nonstop flight. What they don't tell you when booking, is all of the fees associated with your flight that you pay AFTER booking. Baggage Fees: Sun Country doesn't allow you to take more than a personal item on the plane without a fee. It's $20 to check a bag (which you pretty much have to do, as their carry on bag dimensions are smaller than the average roll-a-board bag), and $30 if you want to carry a bag on. Per person. So there's $80 gone for my fiance and I, round trip. Seat Fees: Yes, you heard me right - then you have to PAY FOR YOUR SEAT. I'm sorry - what did I pay for when I purchase my ticket?? The front of the coach cabin starts at $25 per seat (including exit rows), $20, $11 towards the middle, and $2 at the back of the plane. Ok, so apparently if you check in online, you have to select a seat and you have to pre-pay for bags. Ok, felt like I was stiff armed here. The fiance and I decided to go with the $2 seats - can't be that bad, right? Boarding and flight crew were lovely - no complaints here. The plane itself, and the additional costs associated in-air...another story. We were going to a wedding, so he had his suit - the flight attendant let us know the plane didn't have a closet (wait, what?!) so we had to lay it down in one of the overhead bins. Don't worry folks - the bins were next to empty across the entire plan (again, wait, what?!) because of course no one wanted to have to pay $10 more to carry on a smaller bag than it would cost them to check a NORMAL bag. One of the two bathrooms was working, and the entire back of the plane smelled like feces was being recycled through the air system. No wonder these were $2 seats. The aisle was full of people standing the whole flight because the plane only had one working restroom. Entertainment? Hope your phone is charged - the planes are old and don't have outlets. The options for 'entertainment' offered for free on larger carriers like Alaska, are $15 per device on Sun Country - so let's say that's another $60 round trip if we each wanted a 'normal' flight amenity. TOTAL - we're now looking at $144 of charges I would never have imagined ON TOP of the fees I had paid when booking. Next time, I'll go with Alaska - I know what to expect, and know there are no real hidden charges anywhere. At that rate, the cost isn't that different either."
Cons: "The seats don’t give much leg room and no plug ins available for phone/iPad. Guess I’m used to Alaska Airlines."
Cons: "They charged for my carrie on! I didnt have o pay when I flu with you guys! I was surprised!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The crew on this flight was attentive and nice. The pilot was talented enough to land in a blizzard. It was a non-stop flight."
Cons: "The seats were assigned at random and virtually no one got to sit with the people they were traveling with. We asked for help with this situation, but I really do not think the flight crew or check-in tried much to remedy. When on the plane the guy next to me was traveling with his family and they were all in separate seats on the plane, including his 8 year old boy, who was crying about it... it was a 5-6 hour flight. The other person next to me was not sitting with his wife, neither was I, it was such a scattered mess, it would've been better to let people just first come first serve their seats."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I over paid baggage fee for both departure and return, been trying to call a customer service representative for a refund but their is no direct number. I keep getting switched from one person to another without any feed back and it's so frustrating. It will be nice if I can get someone to just tell me there is no refund rather than keeping me online for over 10mins."
Pros: "Convenience of a non stop from Denver to Mazatlan"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Online Seat selection only on payment and online check-in was allowed only upon seat selection. Indirectly it means collect some more $$ from passengers for online check-in. Boarding sequence was chaotic as there was no sequence after the first class."
Cons: "the seats are not comfortable for a three hour flight."
Cons: "PLane was 1:30 hour late. They didn't tell us why. Didn't get a ticket until the gate. Got put in the middle aisle in the last row. Seat was very uncomfortable, and I normally never notice that kind of stuff."
Pros: "Fast boarding and great service. Funny piolet was a a plus."
Cons: "Paying for tablet use during a 6 hour flight."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "We had mobility issues and got great help♡"

Pros: "No thing"
Pros: "Great staff at ticketing and the gate"
Pros: "Convenience of non stop."
Pros: "Let a over weight bag go without charging. Thank you."
Cons: "Could be alittle more room in seats."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and accommodating. I forgot that Sun Country serves cheese burger hamburgers, keep them on the menu."
Cons: "People switching seats prior to take off in the airplane. This needs to be enforced that people need to stay in their assigned seats unless approved by the crew."
Pros: "Check in was easy & fast! We were pre checked & that was lovely being that it was the day before Thanksgiving. The staff on both flights were delightful & pleasent!"
Pros: "The friendliest service and very accommodating when I asked about a seat change to sit next to two other friends. I wish all airlines has this great customer service!"
Pros: "Excellent service all around -- from baggage check and pre-boarding process to inflight delivery and early arrival. I also loved departing from terminal 2. Great job Sun Country!"
Pros: "It was less expensive than the other last-minute options I had."
Cons: "The staff and crew were rude from the minute I checked in to the minute I deplaned. The woman at the check-in counter was upset that her printer was malfunctioning and instead of apologizing to the guests being delayed from boarding their flight, she rolled her eyes and grunted at them all. I went out of my way to pack a carry-on sized bag for a week long business trip and was *forced* (not asked) to check it in because the flight was full. The woman at the gate couldn't have been more rude about inconveniencing me and making me late for my first meeting of the week (due to waiting for my checked bag at the wrong carousel--which the crew directed me to). The second leg of the flight, from Minneapolis to LA, was delayed, and my seat/flotation device on that plane kept detached while I slept. Just a nightmare start to finish, and I will never fly Sun Countey again."
Pros: "Good prices, good friendly crew, arrived at least a 1/2 hour earlier than we were supposed to..overall excellent"
Cons: "Better snack selection other than that it was an excellent experience"
Pros: "Nobody sat next to me"
Cons: "Slow boarding"
Pros: "Didn't select seat, and full flight resulted in upgrade to exit row. I was comfortable on both legs. I didn't try the food/drink but was impressed they had a few beers and Lions Tap burgers."
Cons: "I stayed at airport bar waiting for friends at SeaTac. Bag stayed on carousal for 2 hrs, but no signage of where it was. No one from Sun Country was at the terminal at all (nobody at ticketing or any bag service). I called service in MPLS and they emailed someone at SeaTac to contact me. I was able to locate it myself on one of the 16 carousals, but didn't receive a call for another 90 minutes."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "The aircraft was convenient"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for an hour and then the bagging claim took too much time so I missed my bus."
Pros: "Very caring and friendly crew."
Pros: "Very easy flight. Very lovely crew. Very pleasant experience. I'd do it again. My excellent marks are based on the expense. There are more impressive first class offerings on other carriers, but for the price, these people are doing a terrific job."
Cons: "Entertainment is hand held. There is no in-flight wifi."
Pros: "Term 2 and sun country rock"
Cons: "Was all good"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "$285 round trip MSP-SEA - make it doable to visit family out there."
Cons: "No free snacks - minor concern"
Pros: "I don't know if I will ever rate "comfort" more than "good", given that you're crammed in like sardines (just like any other airline - in Coach)."
Pros: "I liked getting to board first because I volunteered to have my carry on taken as a checked bag."
Cons: "I didn't like the amount of space I had. But that can be expected, so not a big deal."
Pros: "At least music , a movie and pleaseeee!!! Maybe a chips or something with the drinks"
Cons: "Overall was ok"
Pros: "We had a wonderful flight! Crew was very friendly and I am a nervous traveler, but felt at ease!"
Pros: "Staff was very nice!"
Cons: "Would like a more healthy option for an entree..."

Streaming entertainment feature kept freezing

Cons: "They claim to be cleaning these planes but I find that hard to believe when there is Gum on the window sill. We were also delayed quite a bit in the boarding process. Also I would imagine that during Covid-19 these companies would do a better job of not overbooking flights but all of my flights with American this past weekend were overbooked. Which delayed us even longer as they searched for volunteers to adjust their flights. In today's age of technology the idea that they are still overbooking planes makes no sense to me in the slightest. I will be walking, driving or taking a boat before I fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "Bumped from first class to coach."
Cons: "WiFi"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "The American Airlines staff seemed like they were in a bad mood, not very friendly. Nothing outrageous though."
Cons: "The salad was included two unmentioned items that were unwelcome: bleu cheese and pasta."
Cons: "Everything, especially an AA customer representative. Very rude, inconsiderate, and unprofessional."

Cons: "Delays,"
Cons: "The flight attendants were the best"
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat with complimentary drinks that I still got charged for."
Cons: "They lost and cant track my baggage. Very poor customer service."
Cons: "How does a ground crew not know a plane is coming in late. How is there no one here for baggage. It's a joke."
Cons: "inadequate ventilation"
Pros: "LOVED the spacious leg room on that aircraft!"
Cons: "The lady beside me and everyone else listened to her audio book."
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "This new low life category where you cannot even pay to be treated like a human."
Pros: "Seats were nice, service came pretty quickly considering the size of the plane, boarding went reasonably quick"
Cons: "Started boarding and didn't announce another delay till we're on the aircraft, sitting in the gate for an hour and a half. My audio jack was broken and regardless, it will still trying to charge me for everything even though i was force to be squashed between two people who are also frustrated about sitting doing nothing."
Pros: "Attendants are always friendly; always a peaceful travel event"
Cons: "They separated my bags, so I had to wait in Philadelphia for my bag to arrive on next flight 2 1/2 hours latter. Not happy after flying from Sydney."
Pros: "Travel time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight. The charging stations come in between legs space and very uncomfortable they got to be re adjusted. Make sure these are taken care in upcoming flights."
Pros: "it was a bit bumpy all the way to NOLA, but we still got drinks and snacks, and flight attendants were very nice"
Pros: "The flight attendants."
Cons: "I was sitting in an aisle seat, a guy with a backpack hit my forehead. I was massaging my forehead and felt wetness. I was bleeding, the passengers next to me gave napkins and I pressed it to stop the bleeding. The flight attendant gave napkins and ice, the pilot was informed. He had Atlanta fire and rescue meet me at the gate upon landing."
Pros: "Lovely service on the plane, I fly every other week or so and it was a relatively easy travel day."
Cons: "The limitation on available hardware that is compatible with the GoGo app prevented us from enjoying the available entertainment."
Pros: "Nice crew, quick boarding"
Cons: "quite a bumpy ride, passenger's drink next to me went everywhere as a result; No entertainment"
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "American advertised free TV and movies streamed to your device via a card placed in the seatback pocket and in the flight attendant's announcement. Although the card stated, "This Flight. Free Entertainment..." I was informed that there was, in fact, no such feature."
Pros: "Cabin was clean. Flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "Their snacks were merely a cookie which was okay, but not what I would have wanted."
Cons: "Middle seat and one of the last ones on. Enough said"
Pros: "Staff try ed not much they could do"
Cons: "Eventually arrived i. Raliegh after a full day or arranging and crazy stress. Not sure I'll fly American again."
Pros: "I made it safely to my destinations and in a timely manner."
Cons: "The lack of space to breathe. Being herded like cattle to our seats. The fact that in flight service BARELY made it to the back of the plane before we landed."

Pros: "The entertainment system. It was awesome. The crew was friendly."

Cons: "It was difficult to get to the rest room because it was a full flight"
Pros: "Pilot was very communicative, which was great but plane was 1 hour late and we had a mechanical problem while taxing, pilots fixed it while still on the ground. Not their fault those planes are 35 years old, come on!"

Pros: "TV and on time flight"
Cons: "Space"
Pros: "Captain and crew were capable and friendly."
Pros: "I loved the price more than anything else. All the staff were friendly and professional. Every flight was on time with no delays."
Pros: "they cancelled the flight and they did not say anything, then the crew in the airport were very rude with everyone."
Cons: "seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "I like the seat is comfortable, I have enough legroom everywhere (by every seats)."
Cons: "I didn't like the snack what I get."

Cons: "Our flight was over 1.5 hours delayed but the AA staff at the desk wouldnt give any updates despite it being clear we were severely delayed."
Pros: "asked to have my window seat switched to an aisle for both legs of my flight. One leg did, the other didn't get changed, and I was led on to believe it did. disappointed that I was told one thing and it was not correct."
Pros: "Short, sweet, uneventful"
Pros: "United does it better than low-cost carriers"
Cons: "Not worth the additional cost over low-cost carriers"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "I was very specific with selecting aisle seats(has my sitting option) but it was ignored many times without my trip which made very uncomfortable. At times I had to request which seats."
Cons: "pretzels and drinks only provided. Not too friendly stewardess, eating utensils were not available to assist customer with brought in meal. Luggage did not make it to destination with passenger... it arrived 2 hours later in the following United flight."
Cons: "The plane was hot. The pilot forced a landing quickly to be on time, instead of taking his time through rough winds. The plane was very turbulent and the landing was extremely rough. I actually pulled out the "puke bag" and almost needed it."
Pros: "Quick and uneventful flight."
Cons: "My reading light didn't work."
Pros: "Everything went well"
Cons: "I loved everything"
Cons: "2 Hours late"

Pros: "Very nice employees. The trip was good. Unfortunately, the plane was delayed for a fueling off load for 45 minutes but it all worked out just fine."
Cons: "NONE"
Pros: "Besides being tired and walking what felt like 3 miles to new gate I have not issues to report."
Cons: "I chose to fly Southwest on the way back and for less money I received better service. If you find a reasonably priced flight you don't have to worry about paying extra for baggage or stomach during the flight. On the flight home, I realized that they have bigger seats, your bags ( 1 personal, 1 carry-on, and 2 checked bags) are "free" and they give you a little snack to hold you for maybe and hour. Overall I prefer Southwest because of all the benefits you get while flying with them but it doesn't mean I will never fly United again."
Pros: "The crew on this flight looked miserable."
Pros: "United terminal in Houston is very nice"
Cons: "Narrow, uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Pilot communicated everything"
Cons: "Late takeoff"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seating!"
Pros: "The in-flight crew were very nice and no one got beat up. our flight was delayed but we got put on a later flight without issue."
Cons: "No entertainment and no free wifi and the seats hurt my beck and back. The girl who checked us in was abrasive to us and everyone in front of us in line, but maybe she wasn't trying to be, that was just her personality. Our flight got delayed which meant we missed out on seeing an old friend I hadn't seen in years, but at least we got there."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "My group got separated, as well as a few other groups I saw. There was no effort made by the airport staff to accommodate any of us."
Cons: "Issues with crew delayed the flight. I was further delayed getting to my destination because they forced me to check my bag."
Cons: "Being wedged in the middle seat after two overseas flights and seeing stand-by passengers in isle and window seats in rows ahead of mine... no, I did not appreciate that. In other words, UA is accomodating stand-by passengers before accomodating customers who have purchased tickets. Try sitting in a middle seat after two overseas flights... especially as a tall person with no knee space and a super-uncomfortable seat with the headcushion area reaching only your neck. Those seats were clearly made for folks under 5'8"-5'9"."
Pros: "On time. Comfortable"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant was rude to middle eastern woman. Thought her behavior was unnecessarily rude when dealing with a woman who didn't speak English."
Cons: "I have arthritis (walk with a cane) and didn't have enough leg room....hated being in a middle seat....and due to that could not stand in flight to stretch legs. Also the crew on the way to New York made sure I had a wheelchair to cross the airport in Chicago and not so in New Orleans...had to make a visit to the emergency room after getting home and be off work for 5 days due to the condition of my leg after the walk across the airport."
Pros: "Nice new comfortable seats"
Pros: "Wonderful crew, great plane ride."
Pros: "Easy"
Pros: "Excellent service!"
Pros: "The flight was very smooth and on time"

Cons: "The seats were too small no leg room"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Beyond making sure we were comfortable."
Cons: "No usb hookup. No food"
Pros: "On time and direct"
Cons: "Same comment as above"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice and there was no problem with the actual flight. The issue was with the United employees at the check in area."
Cons: "The employees at IAD were grumpy and put off by helping us passengers. The kiosk lines were full so after having waited for a while I went to the actual counter since there we no people in line and the agent chased em back to the kiosk. I felt that that was a very poor reflect of customer service. I expect more from United."
Pros: "The United Airline staff was very helpful. Our evening flight from another airline was cancelled and we booked the next available United flight departing early the following morning. Recommendations from the staff made our unplanned stay much more comfortable. It was greatly appreciated."
Pros: "Smooth flight, nice staff, on time"
Cons: "Not enough leg room!!! The new planes cram us in even tighter. Unless you pay more, you suffer. Why should we have to pay more just because we are tall??!! Pocket for book etc is way too small."
Pros: "Left promptly on schedule and arrived on time."
Cons: "Crew cordial but not friendly. Refreshments: I asked for water...flight attendant never asked if I wanted ice and she gave me room temperature water........"
Pros: "Nice people working."
Cons: "The weather! And air traffic control!!"
Pros: "Very smooth flight and good seat"
Cons: "I had to be in New Orleans at 12:00am so I could arrive home for an important interview on Monday morning.. My trip was cancelled and I had no knowledge of this until my arrival to the airport.. I had to pay an additional 75.00 to go back to Racine then another 75.00 to head back the next morning. When i arrived to New Orleans I was charged an additional 30.00 dollars for parking!"
Cons: "Still not in New Orleans"
Pros: "Not much to like"
Cons: "Supervisors and staff rude in Houston not accommodatING at all Horrible overall exoeriance with United"
Pros: "The flight was very short. Loved it"
Cons: "My Ears hurt after the flight was over."
Pros: "Same as above,"
Cons: "Same as above, but no snack was offered, and there was only expansive food for purchase"
Pros: "Flight took off promptly & landed early"
Cons: "Paid a lot more than I did for the same flight via delta with half the amenities. Crew not particularly friendly"
Pros: "Crew was polite and responsive."
Cons: "Flight was extremely delayed because of missing flight crew and/or pilot. Boarding announcements were very hard to follow because of overlapping PA systems at the gate. We sat at the gate for a long time before take off, which was uncomfortable because the seats are cramped for anyone above average height and I could not put my seat back or put my headrest up."
Pros: "We had excellent service on the plane and the new snacks that are handed out was a welcomed addition."
Cons: "TSA held a planned work action to have workers call in sick and my flight left 30 minutes late as at departure time we were missing over 20 passengers who hadn't gotten through TSA yet."
Cons: "My direct flight to New Orleans was canelled forcing me to arrive five hours late for my ride from the airport."
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Price. Flight was on time for boarding and arrived ahead of time to the destination."
Cons: "More cushion in the seats."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, they made us wait at the airport for five hours, kept delaying thirty minutes at a time. Didn't offer another flight out until three days later"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful and funny. We arrived to our destination early!"
Cons: "Seats are not that comfortable."
Pros: "Great crew and flight despite bad turbulence"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours and then the actual boarding process took another 30 min. Should’ve arrived at my destination by 6 and it’s now it’s 930"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 8 hours before ultimately being canceled."
Pros: "Was direct and easy. No issues with boarding or flight"
Cons: "Cramped"
Pros: "My daughter forgot to mention I have a disability when booking flight. I went to boarding desk and they got me on flight right away!! I will fly frontier as much as possible in the future."
Cons: "Space a little tight but my flight was only 2 hours so I could live with that. Would love option of an entrainment unit on seat backs but I understand that with cheap flights it wouldn’t be cost effective for frontier. Flight delayed but that happens a lot with other airlines. Gave regular updates at desk and reason for the delay. Staff wonderful. Plane spotless"
Pros: "Pilots were great. Nice flight experience."
Cons: "Delayed boarding - waiting for paperwork. Annoying"
Pros: "The cost of the flight"
Cons: "The 2.5+ hour delay"
Pros: "Love the flight price!"
Cons: "As expected, everything else is a la carte."
Pros: "The price but after today, I’m going back to “you get what you pay for.”"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 21/2 hours. Was not told ahead of time. We boarded even later then we sat on the tarmac for an hour and a half and we were told that we were #12 in line. An hour later we were told that we were now #15!! Finally off the ground. Flight attendant had a very annoying voice but what made it worse how he kept asking for money because of everyone purchasing. Yes I know but some how on other flights you don’t hear about the money, this was in your face"
Pros: "Attendants very personable, boarding very efficient"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. And because I purchased a cheaper ticket I felt everything was a la carte and very expensive."
Pros: "Crew took great care of passengers as we were delayed 2 hours on the tarmac for deicing. Not their fault but the company gave passengers a $50 certificate for our late arrival."
Cons: "The extra add fees with everything. Also no complimentary beverage or snack"
Pros: "I got there safely."
Cons: "The crew did not help people with bags and barked when people opened doors that were closed. There was no entertainment and no complimentary snacks or even water."
Cons: "They lost my bag then informed me they don't track their luggage so not only was it lost, they couldn't even tell me where it was. The frontier employee at the airport was awful. Completely unhelpful. The crew on the flight was good but the airplane is uncomfortable with tiny seat trays and zero wifi options. Won't be flying frontier again."
Pros: "Staff was Friendly and The Price was Great"
Cons: "There wasn't anything"
Cons: "Poor customer service. Baggage fees are ridiculous. Checking in online or by app and paying for bags doesnt save any time. You still have to wait at the counter in the airport. No bag drop. Airplane seats are uncomfortable. Waited on the tarmac for about 45 min"
Pros: "baggage check-in speedy and efficient, rapid plane boarding and plane left the gate on schedule"
Cons: "A special circle in Dante's Hell should be reserved for the Frontier executives who approved the seat design. The non-reclining seat backs are fairly comfortable, but the seat bottoms appear to have about 1/4 inch of foam padding over a hard shell. Did anybody actually test these things out by sitting in them for over 10 minutes?"
Pros: "Flight was 3 hours delayed. When we arrived at the airport they said it would be delayed by 2 hours. Then right before our new boarding time they delayed it another hour. I wish we would have had some advance notice so we weren't stuck waiting at the airport for 3 hours."
Cons: "Frontier seats are extremely uncomfortable (I would say the worst of any airline) and they charge for carry on luggage and drinks."
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable they didn't even recline on top of they charge you for every single thing."
Pros: "We were ahead of schedule! Everything was on time or better."
Cons: "Got a little nervous with the sound of the plane before take off but other than that it was an amazing trip to New Orleans."
Pros: "They were friendly and assisting. Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Super uncomfortable after 3 hours"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Had an issue with flight attendant humiliating me in front of all passengers around me."
Pros: "It is so convenient and was a pleasure to get in and out. Pick up was a little crazy but still nicer than other airports."
Pros: "Flight to Philly delayed multiple times arrived at 3 am which was a major inconvenience for my friends. Flight back was cancelled and you are basically left to your own devices to get transportation on your own. Your refund is granted in 7 to 10 days but you need to front the cost for whatever last minute transportation you procure. Nightmare carrier if something goes wrong"
Pros: "I had an average flight. No major issues. My main objective as a direct fight which only this flight offered. $40 checked bag fee. Not aware of any fee for carry-one but guess I need to check my recipets...."
Pros: "We sat on the plane for two hours before having to get off. The plane was scheduled to leave at 11:59 pm and did not leave until approximately 7:00 am! Pitiful. I will never schedule another flight on Frontier."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Alot of empty seats so we could stretch out.."
Cons: "I don't know why they bought a plane with seats that don't recline and tray tables are only half as wide as normal."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "So cramped. So uncomfortable. The crew didn't seem to want to be there any more than we did. I know it's a budget airline, but pleeeease put a little give in those seats."
Pros: "I had no problems. Our flight arrived early."
Cons: "Too many advertisements/promotions over the PA."
Pros: "I never write reviews, but I have to say something about this wonderful flight crew. I have a serious fear of flying and their great attitude and funny personalities made my experience 100x better than usual. Please send them my thanks!"
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "We booked this flight well in advance and had confirmation for it. Imagine our dismay when we received a notification a few days before our trip that our connecting flight from Denver to Salt Lake City was changed to 10 hours later. When we arrived in Denver, we went to the customer service desk and was told that the flight we had booked didn't have any seats for us and we would have to take the later flight. No explanation. It was scheduled to leave on time, just that they had no room for us even though we had a confirmation number for that flight. I don't know if the responsibility was with Frontier airlines or our booking agency, but rest assured I will not use either one of them again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane was delayed and I was not notified by email."
Pros: "The crew were great and my flight was on time"
Cons: "Charged $40 for carry on bags! Also no complimentary beverages or snacks at all"
Pros: "They let parents with children under 3 board first along with those that need help. That was a plus for me since I was traveling with my 2 years old grandson"
Cons: "I had no complaints"
Cons: "I'm sorry I usually do not say anything negative but all 4 of my flights were bad. They were all late. 2 out of 4 were at the wrong gates. There were no announcements made. If I had not looked myself I would have not even knew.. The crew were rude and unfriendly. No one smiled. Over all a very unpleasant time. I will not use Frontier airlines again."
Pros: "YEAH FRONTIER! They did a fabulous job getting me back home and once again on time and without any problems! Staffs were kind and gracious from the ticket counter all the way through! LOVE this airline! Watch out Southwest!"
Cons: "Frontier has a lot of hidden fees such as having to pay to have a carry on bag and also trying to charge me for a seat when checking in online. I mean, what exactly did I pay for when I purchased my tickets? Ridiculous."
Pros: "- The quick check-in was great, I found that it was maybe one of the easiest I've had. The flight was great for the cost as well, I was happy to know that it was just what I needed."
Cons: "I didn't like that they didn't offer any snacks on the fight, not even a water or pretzels, everything costed money."
Pros: "Smooth flight, on time departure."
Cons: "Paying extra for everything; eg. seats that were no better than any others, with arm rests that were like rocks; paying for coffee. The 'threat' that if yiu din't pay for seats tigether, you may be separated frim your companion. Overall, a great example of overpromising, overcharging, and underdelivering. A flight attendant whose response to my surprise at having to pay for coffee was "...I don't make the rules." Frontier should spend some coffee money on retraining attendants on customer service."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Everything else. Terrible seats, most uncomfortable flight ever. No complimentary beverage/snack."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Got a cheap flight but little did I know that that would be offset by being nickeled and dimed for seats, bags, and drinks. On top of that th plane was five hours late from its start point and the only information the gate agents would give (with an attitude) was the plane was coming. I called customer service to see if they were offering any restitution for this, and I was told that's not up to him. I will never never never fly frontier ever again."
Cons: "-$40 fee for carry-ons (I am a violinist, so my violin is my carry-on, meaning I also need to bring a checked bag) -$35 fee for checked bags -non-reclinable thin plastic seats -everything on board costs money, including water -both my flight to Charlotte and back to Chicago were both delayed for the same stated reason of the airline not allocating enough time for the plane to be released from inspections after a previous international flight -no information about new projected arrival times -poor communication with waiting passengers -loud thumping and beeping noises on the plane"
Pros: "It was satisfactory. More space than I expected for a low fare airline"
Cons: "That I was nickle and dimed for EVERYTHING."
Cons: "Overcrowded no complimentary beverage"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Seats were the most uncomfortable ever. Tray backs were about size of a pack of cheese crackers. Would barely hold a soft drink. At no time during my booking or printing of the itinerary was there any mention that if I chose my own seat there would be a hefty up-charge and that I would be charged $30.00 each way for a carry on bag. They don't tell you this until you've paid the fare and it's time to print the boarding pass. I have no idea how this airline stays in business. By the time I paid all the excess charges I could have flown on Delta on a nice plane with nice seats. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. Never again will I fly Frontier. I'd rather take the bus."
Pros: "Crew and the general process"
Cons: "Mostly the fact that we had to pay extra to check in!!!!!! Ridiculous! I was trying to check in using the Frontier App on my phone and I had to enter my credit card information. Then we had to pay for seltzer water??!!! Your tray tables are a joke (WAY TOO SMALL). Seats are not very comfortable"
Pros: "Trenton Airport is so convenient and Frontier flights are often early coming in and out of there since they are the only airline. They are small but efficient."
Cons: "The only problem is that there are limited flights in and out of Trenton so if your flight is cancelled due to bad weather or something, you generally can't get to your destination. That happened to me once. Otherwise, it's great!"
Pros: "Free water"
Cons: "Leg room was a little tight."
