Pros: "fare was good"
Cons: "the seat was terrible"
Pros: "* Good leg room at my seat * Though the check-in line was very long, the curbside check-in attendant was courteous, professional, and very efficient."
Cons: "* Long line for check in * Flight 137 from Denver to Seattle was almost two hours late * seats on airplane don't recline and there is not an adjustable headrest to hold my head in place * The flight attendant wouldn't let me put my paid-for carry-on luggage in the overhead bin above our seats (we were sitting in row 2, seats A,B, C). She said they were reserved for row 1. So I had to place our paid-for carry-on baggage in the overhead bins above row 4. * no movie or even reading material at my seat * No complimentary snack or beverage (only available for purchase). Are you kidding me? I paid extra money for carryons and check-in baggage for all three of us, and my experience on Frontier made me feel like a second class citizen. I doubt I will ever fly with Frontier again."

Cons: "From the time my flight sat at the gate for 30 minutes saying that had to load last minute bags, to getting no water to drink for 3 hours, to uncomfortable seats that do not push back, and now no bags after 36 hours after paying a $40.00 fee, with no way to communicate with the airlines for a status, this will be the last Frontier flight for me, regardless of the pricing."
Cons: "I felt taken advantage of by the surcharges."
Pros: "Cheap prices"

Cons: "The seats don't recline, the boarding passes didn't scan anywhere we tried to scan into."
Pros: "The announcement (although I didn't take them up on it) to offer two domestic round trips if I'd sign up for one of their Mastercards. It's probably not a bad deal for someone who likes to have lots of credit cards and doesn't mind annual fees, I'm just not one of those people."
Cons: "My inability to access their e-mail offers to set things up ahead of time and at lower costs than paying them at the airport check-in, above and beyond the baggage charges themselves (Seventy bucks), especially for my carry on ... COME ON! I've become used to Southwest's far more enlightened policies, which I obviously prefer. Since it also has flights between Seattle and Denver, I'll look much more closely at staying with them the next time I make this trip."

Cons: "First time flying Frontier. Great advertised rate round trip Sea to Denver $140 vs next best AK at $170. Receive email to pick seat, Suprise... They cost $9-36 each way, no mention of free seats if you just show up and go open seating. also Suprise# 2 carrying are $40 each way. I choose $18 seats and had a carry on so total trip ended up being $140 + $126 in a frontier gotcha money an increase in fare of almost double. I did find out about the seat chafe scam before checking in and asked to just go open seat.....uhh no. So how much would the Alaska Air trip have been....$170 plus $0 for assigned seat and $0 for carry on so $170. So fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.... Their will not be a twice and I suggest Kayak add some notes to fares to avoid future bilking by Frontier."
