Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "the fare"
Cons: "the service - departure gates completely understaffed, no allegiant gate agent or staff in sight, only subcontractors and 2 that had to run 4 gates. Flight itself was fine."

Pros: "The price of the flight was cheap, but i know why. You ended up paying for your carry on luggage, ypu pay for seat assignment if you want to guarentee sitting with you party, you pay for soda. My flight was 1.5 hours late, due to mechanical problem. Plane was janky and it felt like it STILL needed repairs."
Cons: "Low airfare."

Pros: "Fast flight. Good climate control"
Cons: "Flight attendants could smile or be a little more friendly. Overall good though. Could add wifi to flights."

Cons: "Delayed 5 hours!"

Pros: "We eventually got to Las Vegas."
Cons: "Everything. Spend an it make and book with someone else."

Cons: "Leg space tight. Seat didn't recline. They said the maximum width on the under seat personal item is 7 inches but space is big enough for wider than that. I felt that was misleading."

Pros: "The stewardess was great on trip up there and back!"
Cons: "Little bit bumpy ride in some spots"

Pros: "Very clean, great staff, smooth flight, easy boarding. All the things you could expect for a great experience. First time flying with this airline so I didn't know what to expect but it was great!"

Pros: "Everything was super easy with Allegiant. This was our second time flying with this airline, and even though you feel like you get nickeled and dimed to death, the overall price is still much lower than any other airline. The plane was clean and the crew, both ways were awesome and in-tune with their passengers. Don't be fooled by the pricing, this is really an outstanding airline, we will fly again with Allegiant!"

Pros: "I am a little disabled... Am in a electric wheelchair, can't speak very well, this was my first flight alone and my chair would not lock in upright position after unfolding it. (If I leaned back on the backrest it would collapse/fold up. I learned I had to lean forward to keep it up.) Everyone was very accommodating and very helpful! At the Provo Airport they gave me a regular wheelchair and I showed them how to remove the lithium battery, remove and stow the joystick and how to fold my chair. No drinks or snacks unless you pay for them. On arrival I waited for everyone else to exit but also took advantage of the lavatory to relieve my bladder ;-). They were waiting trying to unfold my chair. I gave them instructions to step there and lift on the arms and up it went! I showed them where the joystick was, they pulled it out and connected it to the arm, put the battery in the bag, plugged it in, zipped up the bag and I pressed the green button and Voila! it was done! Thank you to the Awesome Allegiant Crew!"

Pros: "Plane was roomy and comfortable."
Cons: "The Plane WAS NOT CLEAN! The turn around of the plane was so short that you guys did not take the time to vacuum the interior of the plane. My seat and other seats in my row was full of cookie crumbs and sticky food from the previous passengers. It was totally disgusting. Yuck !!"

Pros: "Reasonable price for non-stop flight. Staff very helpful and personable."
Cons: "Late, which seems to happen alot with this airline. Have to pay extra for many thngs: selecting seat, carry on bag, snacks, drinks."

Pros: "Fast boarding and getting out of plain."
Cons: "The stewardesses were not very professional, but it's ok since you pay so little. Also you can not adjust seat, it's the same position all flight"

Cons: "7 hours late on a direct flight"

Pros: "Convenient, Clean, Quality, Care"

Pros: "The ease of booking and picking seats were great. I also like checking in via the app."
Cons: "don't mind paying for snacks, that's totally fine. In fact, the prices weren't extravagant, so that was totally acceptable. I don't REALLY even mind paying the baggage fee for a carry on as long as the rules are enforced, but there were people who were BLATANTLY over the size limit who hadn't paid, which seems unfair when I paid $36. The reason I know they didn't pay??? They were MY traveling companions. I can only imagine if they did it, then many other people did it as well. So the money is no big deal when the flight is so inexpensive, but the baggage policy needs to be kept fair. I could barely fit the bag I paid for to be in the overhead storage, b/c backpacks, jackets, and purses were crowding the bin."

Pros: "Nice. Clean."
Cons: "Small seats."

Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "more legroom"

Cons: "Don't do it. Don't fly Frontier. Business model does not provide real training for the staff. No contingency plans for aircraft failures; no training for staff to handle day-to-day normal flights variances (aka, downed aircraft, weather, airport delays). Had three delayed flights trying to leave out of the same gate, instead of separating angry, tired, hungry passengers, they kept them all in the same gate which heightened tensions. Potential crisis situation only made worse."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Politeness and actually hidden bag prices"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Delays"

Pros: "Super uncomfortable seats. Over an hour late"

Pros: "Inexpensive and convenient"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Had to pay for a small check-in."

Cons: "Would of been nice if there wasn’t a huge argument leading to an arrest on board! I didn’t upload but I bet it has surfaced"

Pros: "Great coffee!"

Pros: "Same like up"
Cons: "Same like up"

Pros: "Comfortable and affordable"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The friendly staff made up for the other stuff."
Cons: "need more room."

Cons: "No reclining seats"

Pros: "A grounds crew member spotted a faulty tire. The grounds crew mechanics did a great job and deserve some kudos for repairing it in such a timely manner."
Cons: "Sitting by the window"

Pros: "Great team, friendly, courteous."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "That Airline stole clothes out of the luagage"

Pros: "STAFF WAS FRIENDLY"
Cons: "SEATS ARE VERY UNCOMFORTABLE"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The plane sounded like it needed maintenance. Very loud sounds!"

Pros: "Quick simple"

Cons: "Uncomfortable seating and can't be adjusted at all"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Frontier just lost this customer for life. I'll pay a hundred dollars more to fly United. Getting socked in the face and drug out of my seat by the SS sounds more appealing than ever flying with Frontier again."

Pros: "On tome"

Cons: "No food"

Cons: "They charged 40 dollars just to bring a carry on suitcase onto the plane. That's crazy expensive!"

Cons: "The seat doesn't recline on Frontier Airlines."

Cons: "A seat in row 4 should be able to be reclined. That's ridiculous for a cross country flight."

Pros: "Nothing. I asked for a refund and was told i was getting a refund and never received it. I will never use kayak ot frontier ever again"

Cons: "Long lines to check in. 1 hour wait at terminal while bags were being put on board. Uncomfortable seats that don't recline. Uncomfortable drop down table. No compensation for delay or wait at terminal in plane. Stewards attitudes. Just an overall unpleasant experience."

Pros: "Everyone was helpful"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "No wifi and no entertainment."

Cons: "Cancelled"

Pros: "Perfect landing"

Cons: "^"

Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Slow service after being 2 hours behind schedule."

Cons: "Lost my bag, enough said"

Pros: "I liked who I sat next to."
Cons: "We had to pay for our carry on, our phones wouldn't scan for the ticket, lines were long, I had to run all the way back to print our tickets out, women working outside of the gate were so rude, no tv, thin and uncomfortable seats, just overall disappointing."

Pros: "Check in was done quickly"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Same as above"

Cons: "We left 20 minutes late because we were "waiting for five people". I only found the reason for the delay after overhearing a flight attendant, not because they made an announcement to keep the passengers informed."

Pros: "Once I found out I have to for everything from carry on to water there was nothing to like about booking on Frontier."

Cons: "Was not aware they charge $40 per bag for a carry-on until we got to the ticket counter. The seats were very uncomfortable and I was very surprised you need to pay for drinks, which on any other airline would be complementary. Overall, very dissatisfied."

Pros: "I used to love flying Frontier—the airline with the cute animals on the tail of the planes. Now I call them the F word in airlines. If you want to fly Frontier, I want to make sure you’re forewarned. Their slogan is “A different kind of animal.” This animal is very cunning. And slightly savage. First, if you’ve been suckered into their $59 airfares, you already know what’s waiting for you. Wait. You actually want to fly back home? Well you’ll end up paying the same price as you would most any other airline. But wait…what’s this? Actually, their rates are about $100 cheaper than normal. What they don’t tell you is, they charge $30 for you to carry on your own baggage. I always thought it was ludicrous to charge me to carry my own bag onto a plane. Keep in mind that’s one way. So it’s $60 round trip. And that’s their discounted rate if you book online. It goes way up if you’re one of the unfortunates who wait till you’re at the kiosk to settle up with the Frontier Friskers. Oh, you say you want to actually choose your seat? That’s $13 minimum. For each leg of your trip. Don’t be surprised if they figure out a way to charge you for each leg of your body. That’s for a normal seat. If you don’t cough up the $13, they’ll randomly seat you wherever they want. I wouldn’t be surprised if they counted the lavatory as a possibility. So, that’s $60 for your own carry-on luggage. And a minimum $26 if you dare to choose your own cheap seat. Hmm. That $100 savings is looking rather slim right now. Speaking of slim, that describes their seats. And they don’t recline. You’re straight upright your whole trip. And the padding is about as comfortable as a cheap mattress in a cheap motel. The best way I can describe the feeling: Say you’re on Sesame Street and your job is to sit on the capital letter ‘L” for two hours. So while spending what feels like an eternity in L, maybe you’d like something to quench your thirst. That’s $1.99. Water? $1.99. A snack? $2.99. I’m surprised they don’t charge for toilet paper. By the square. (To be fair, I just learned that a cup of water is actually free. “For today,” said the flight attendant. “That could change.”) Nice Surprise: The people who work for Frontier are generally nice. But if this is the way Frontier treats their customers, how do they treat their employees? Do they make their mechanics buy their own tools? I wrote to the company to let them know how hugely disappointed I am with their changes. I never got the courtesy of a reply. I somehow like to imagine the CEO, in the true spirit of “no frills”, answering each customer letter by himself on an Olivetti typewriter from the 1970s. But I kind of doubt it. So there you have it. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. And if you have four arms, well, you might just fit their new slogan. Frontier Airlines: A whole different way to treat people like animals."
Cons: "Frontier's low fares which are deceptive. They charge you $60 for carrying your own bag! They charge you $13 per leg for the "privilege" of choosing your seat--even the normal seats. They charge you $1.99 for basic sodas offered by most every other airline for free. And they charge you $2.99 per snack. The seat are slim, terribly uncomfortable with virtually no padding and they don't recline! They don't respond when you write them."
