Cons: "This wasn't pertaining to the flight or airline; but the TSA line was ridiculously slow."

Pros: "good price but older plans"

Pros: "the upgraded seats with the new headrests were great. the pilots & crew did a great job despite the more-than-average turbulence."
Cons: "lack of any entertainment options whatsoever (not necessary but always a nice-to-have). More importantly, the fact that I checked-in with seat 14 and ended-up, seemingly randomly, in seat 28 (the back of the plane) when I had SPECIFICALLY selected a seat in the FRONT section of the plane. That was particularly annoying, especially since the optics of the situation were such that I used miles to purchase the flight and got "screwed-over" with respect to my seat selection as if my ticket held less weight than other passengers..."
Cons: "Guests with no overhead luggage should be able to exit first."
Pros: "I got to destination. Baggage claim was quick."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to waiting for a tardy flight attendant. Landing felt a little hard. No announcement about baggage carousel prior to disembarking."

Cons: "Old smelly plane. Bad entertainment options."
Pros: "Efficient and on time."
Cons: "I booked tickets well in advance but wasnt allowed to select seats at time of booking nor at 24 hour check in. This adds undue stress having to wait for an assignement at the gate."

Pros: "30 min. early!"

Cons: "The flight was very bumpy and didn't have the option to watch a movie."
Pros: "The cookies!!!"
Cons: "To cold on plane"
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "Unable to get seat assignments until check-in (overbooked); therefore, my wife and I sat in middle seats on different rows. Boarding is an exercise to continue the "caste system" between 1st class passengers and coach with the "priority boarding" line and the "general boarding" side of the turnstile...what a joke! Richard Anderson, CEO comes on the recording and tells us how great Delta is and then every Delta employee on the flight try to disprove his flowery speech. We paid $50 to pre check luggage then have to fight for a place in the overhead storage for a small backpack and a coat because of all the possessions priority passengers bring onboard. Thanks for the coke..."
Cons: "The first 2 hours were so bumpy that I got sick. I was also in the middle seat and was so uncomfortable I couldn't sleep."
Pros: "He crew was very nice!"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed and there were too many problems at the Columbus airport!"
Pros: "Although not the crew or airline's fault at all, we had to sit and wait for the Vice President to leave the airport, which delayed the whole airport, really messed up my plans in St. Louis. Very friendly staff, and the captain kept us very well informed of the whole situation. Besides running out of choices to drink (they were down to water with no ice by the time they got to us) it was an ok flight."
Cons: "They charge for coffee."
Pros: "Old aircraft, ok flight, on time"
Cons: "First flight delayed 45 min, then cancelled. 2nd flight 3 hrs later."

Pros: "This was the same crew and pilot from the flight I took to LAX. His landing was so smooth, I woke up pleasantly upon landing!"
Pros: "Great staff."
Cons: "The hour delay due to maintenance and fueling."
Pros: "Why would a jet this size wobble all the way across the Atlantic! The pretzels were even stale, and they served a "pizza" that was a stale mini loaf with sauce and a little mozzarella. People were starving when breakfast was served. The thermostat fluctuated from horribly hot to freeing - for 14 hrs. The crew slammed things down on table trays, grumped, were giving harsh orders to patrons rather than gently directing them. These ladies do not enjoy their job. I am done with Delta. We were also an hour late taking off due to a door on a cargo hold not closing. I was embarrassed that our Aussie friends experienced this as their first American flight."
Cons: "Food, attitude of flight attendants, comfort of cabin. Pilot took charge of thermostat issue and kept us informed in a friendly manner regarding the status of our take off and flight progress."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding numbers"
Pros: "My neighbor."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for over an hour for no apparent reason."
Cons: "Seemed to be an unnecessary delay in departing a half hour late"
Cons: "I nearly missed my flight because I did not have a seat for a flight that I bought a ticket for at full price. Which, would lead one to believe that I would have a seat on said flight. However, coming to the gate an hour before boarding the personnel working gate the said he was having computer difficulties and could not get me a seat and it would be 10 min. I continued to return till boarding to find out I had no seat and I was on standby. Upon going to customer service they replied the airline oversold tickets and every airline does this as if to make this practice ok. Well being in sales myself and if I were to sell x amount of product to one customer ( or several) I better make sure I have it all there to deliver. People rely on you schedule wise. It nearly shot a meeting I had to make in the foot. Very disappointed with the airline and the way things were handled."
Cons: "Forced to check my carry on. Took 30min for the bags to come out on the carousel. Which is why i never check my bag."
Pros: "Speedy boarding"
Cons: "Unmotivated crew, uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "We boarded fast and the flight was smooth. The crew was very friendly."

Pros: "very friendly staff"
Pros: "Nothing to expect from Domestic fight."
Cons: "I selected an aisle seat because I have very bad anxiety and when I got there to print off my ticket I was assigned a middle seat. It was very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic, with people sitting in wrong seats and walking the wrong way down the plane. Crew were not especially friendly. I know it was at the tail end of a long Sunday, but it wasn't impressive."
Pros: "Plane was ancient"
Pros: "Good flight! Smooth landing!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled without notification."
Pros: "Entertainment, 110 plugins for devices, internet."
Cons: "only free meal option was cinnamon cookies."
Pros: "The ginger ale."
Cons: "This was my return trip with more delays due to maintenance issues of the aircraft. 10/17/16 flight 1585 was the outgoing flight delayed five hours on my departing trip. I waited at the baggage carousel 15 minutes for my bag after over an hour delay due to switching aircrafts. With a flight arriving this late in the evening with the low volume of bags checked (due to checked luggage charges), this should not be the case. Five minutes to gulp down ginger ale."
Pros: "All flights were on time Greatly enjoyed the trip"
Pros: "On time, arrived early."
Cons: "Seats too close in front of you."
Cons: "Again out of snacks and she skipped our row for drinks. Again small issues but what else are they doing?"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Plane was clean. Staff very professional."
Cons: "Attempted to make my connection which was in another terminal. Could not get onboard as they shut the doors. My rerouted flight was in a different terminal. Overall a very disappointing travel experience."
Pros: "It took off on time and life was good."
Pros: "The plane has improved greatly with their comfort and leg space"
Cons: "With checking my luggage my bag fee was waived a total of seven times this trip because I'm a military wife to see my husband overseas who is serving a year in Saudi Arabi except this past time on October 2nd at DCA airport. Spoke with the Supervisor Ralph who stated it was against policy. How stringent is this policy if it was waived seven times previously? Policy needs to be reviewed with entire staff. I will no longer use American Airlines because their military convenience and policies no longer seem to favor the military. My husband also after speaking with him will also no longer use your airline including all his members he overseas when they return after their year tour."
Pros: "The people"
Cons: "The seats are too small I'm 6'1 and that's not that tall"
Cons: "The Flight Attendant never gave me back my credit card."
Cons: "3 hour delay...and no voucher for the delay"
Cons: "The original flight was cancelled so we were stuck at the airport for nine hours. Then the replacement fight was a super old out of date place."
Pros: "All went very smoothly"
Pros: "nothing. horrible flight."
Cons: "Aweful experience. I waited for hours in the airport because there was no plane available. thank you for wasting my time. No food served on my first class flight. All airport restaurants closed down so no food available and yet American airlines left me stranded and hungry."
Pros: "Flight was fine, crew was professional and thoughtful."
Cons: "Crew seemed a bit out if sync....but only at first. Later, great."
Pros: "Love bed it! Would recommend to family/friends"
Cons: "IT WAS AMERICAN NOT ALASKA!!!!! ALMOST MISSED MY FLIGHT!!!!!"
Pros: "No surprises"
Cons: "Boarding was slow"
Pros: "The free choices for kids movies - allowed child to be entertained and not bored."
Cons: "Lights were kept on for first hour of a 12am (red eye) flight."
Cons: "sent to 4 different gates and plane delayed 2.5 hours because there WAS NO PLANE wow. then when one was found they couldn't get anyone to bring it to the gate!!!!"
Pros: "In flight entertainment was excellent. That was the only thing positive about the flight."
Cons: "Poor service and communication typical for American. Inbound flight was international. Arrived late but 1/2 hour before our departure. Had to wait for that same flight crew to go through customs and immigration. That took over an hour. By the time the plane was boarded and pushed back (over an hour late), we had an ATC ground hold for weather. If we did not have to wait for the flight crew, we would have been on time and not held up by weather. It took 10 minutes to get someone to the Jetway for deplaning when we arrived. We were the last flight to arrive and it took 45 minutes for the first bags to hit the baggage claim."
Pros: "Went by fast, was a good flight overall..."
Cons: "Stewardess shoved my kid out of the way, very rude"
Pros: "Comfortable seating, good service, wide variety of entertainment options."
Cons: "I’m vegetarian and the food was horrendous and extremely limited."
Pros: "staff was fine"

Cons: "The pretzels were awful"
Pros: "Nothing. It was extremely stressful dealing with the cancellation."
Pros: "Politeness of the crew, not cramped"
Pros: "The email updates on flight gates."
Cons: "Flight got camcelled made me late to duty station"
Pros: "Leg room in seats better than on some airlines. Staff friendly."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed. One hour going and two hours on return."
Cons: "Our flight got canceled due to airport issues at our destination. United canceled the flight but had no alternative flights to get us home. Flights the next day were full. Took over an hour with the service desk to reroute tickets to cancel them and to get bags back then took two hours at baggage claim to get the bags back. Customer service was basically useless. After all that, we didn't get any of our money back! I will be avoiding United airlines. Flight cancelation was not their fault but the way they handled the rest of it was embarrassing."
Cons: "Waiting In the airport 6hr waiting on a flight that takes and hour"
Pros: "The amenities are fabulous. The flight was very comfortable."
Pros: "The young lady who was the flight attendant was very nice and tried to make a very bad situation somewhat bearable. There were a number of children on the flight that she was very attentive to. I hope united treats their employees better than they treat their passengers."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hours. We were told to proceed to the United terminal in spite of the delay. There seemed to be no effort to inform or assist us. There was very little to do in this terminal but wait to see if our flight would eventually come. There were other United passengers in the terminal who were also waiting for overly delayed flights. eventually, we had a plane that was extremely small, cramped and uncomfortable. United seems to consistently oversell its seats and then tried to get people to give up their seats. Very poorly managed airline with bad customer service. Sadly, I have to say that I have never had an acceptable experience on a united flight. Will NOT take another United flight."
Pros: "Same as above. Did notice the woman staffing the counter at boarding having extreme patience with people's problems and non problems. She was great and deserves a raise. Denver gate B 85 between 1:00 and 3:00 6/15/16."
Pros: "I liked that they waited for me because my flight was late getting in to San Francisco."
Cons: "The service. The flight attendants were rude"
Pros: "No much"
Cons: "Take forever to load. No entertainment. Hard, uncomfortable seats, no food. Kept talking about "premiere plus" benefits. Why does it cost $80 to have not bad service?"
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "airport gate lady would't let me run to the bathroom and quickly return for my checked carry-on for "security reasons." Then I heard about 4-5 people being paged to come pick up their checked carry-on luggage."
Pros: "We finally got to Chicago.... In one piece!"
Cons: "The delay, the plane changed so the seat assignments changed but we were not given new boarding passes, A MESS!"
Pros: "on time, clean plane, efficient crew."
Pros: "The smooth ride"
Cons: "Could not cross my legs Not enough room for food and diabetes kit Flight information would not load"
Pros: "The flight was very pleasurable. Smooth takeoff."
Pros: "I was comfortable and I didn't die."
Pros: "Had to wait standby but got on the flight. Was very happy about that!!"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Like any flight, the lack of choice in included snacks."
Cons: "The snack food was the worst I've ever had on any flight. It was some kind of Asian-style snack and I almost gagged. Never had a snack on a plane I couldn't eat until now."
Cons: "Flight delayed so booked on another flight. Get to layover and was told that United tried but couldn't book the second leg of the flight after all. Before we left our original destination, they assured us all the arrangements had been made. Lying to customers doesn't look good for businesses."
Pros: "On time departure of flight"
Cons: "Seats seem to be getting smaller. Flight attendants movement is greatly reduced. It seemed that his behind every time I looked up. Not good!"
Pros: "Price and comfortable new plane"
Cons: "Male stewardess was very unpleasant/unprofessional No food or snack or water offered to my son or I"
Pros: "The flight was fine nothing to rave about or complain about."
Cons: "The cargo door did jam on the return flight so we had to wait at least 30 minutes to get our bags. Not sure if someone didn't do what they were supposed to do when securing luggage. It took maintenance some time and several calls before they came to assist."
Cons: "It was not on united because it kept getting delayed."
Cons: "System was screwed up, boarding was a nightmare."
Pros: "Courteous crew."
Cons: "Old cramped plane (EMB 135/145). Was dingy, dirty and smelled bad, no wi-fi or entertainment options. Very loud ride even though I was near the front far from the engines."
Pros: "There is absolutely nothing that I liked about this experience!"
Cons: "They had to reroute my flight four times! Then when they finally gave me a final flight I didn't get the premier seating that I paid for! Even if it's the only flight available the next time I fly I will not book with United!"
Pros: "I liked that United got me a flight on Delta. A delay on my United flight would have taken off after my connecting flight took off from Chicago to Hartford."
Cons: "I did not get a text message or a phone call that my flight had a long delay."
Pros: "United left late and then had their connecting flight leave early. Both flights were through United and on same itinerary. My teenage son was treated rudely and left to find for himself by the United counter in Dulles, even though he would have made the connection if they had adhered to the departure time. Staff refused to speak with me because, as they told my son, he was the passenger. Unbelievably poor service....and lack of care, professionalism and compassion."
Pros: "Nothing. I am stranded in an airport. Delayed nearly 14 hours. American airlines fixed the issue since united could not. Never again."
Cons: "Everything. I am stranded in an airport. My original flight was at 10:05pm. My new flight is at 11:45am. American airlines stepped up and helped me get a flight out earlier. I am now on a one stop flight instead of non stop, even though I paid for direct. Not very happy and will not use untied again."
Cons: "Cramped space."
Pros: "It was a very smooth trip. No issues"
Pros: "We were in the Economy section and were pleasantly surprised with the leg room and quality of the seats. My husband is over 6ft tall and had plenty of space to stretch out. The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours because they had to change tires they didn't decide that until everyone was already on the plane then had to deboard counter people were very rude this airline is always delayed for something probably the worst airline ever"
Pros: "Crew is very polite and helpful. Boarding was quick and painless. Overall very pleased with experience."
Pros: "Nothing. As the flight never departed due to "weather""
Pros: "The crew made the best of the situation, seemed friendly."
Cons: "Flight left an hour late. Delay caused numerous travelers (including myself) to miss connecting flights. Plane was cramped and we had to sit there for over an hour on the tarmac while we waited for an issue with the plane's weight to be resolved."
Cons: "Sat in the plane at Cicinnati airport, for 6.5 hours before the airline decided to cancel the flight Disgusting abuse of customers."
Pros: "Flight itself wasn't bad but huge delay and almost cancellation"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was great! She was accomodating, funny,and nice."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Late flight due to technical issues and a passenger problem. Wish both could have been resolved quicker."
Pros: "Was a short flight"
Cons: "The plane was soo small. There wasn't enough room."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Really tight seats"
Cons: "Delay in takeoff and the crew were tired and irritable"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time"
Cons: "Even though we checked in and had our boarding passes, we had to wait an hour for Frontier’s bag drop. Fortunately there wa s a minimal wait at the security checkpoint, so we still made our flight... barely."
Cons: "My first time with Frontier was very impressed the people were great and the was huge. I am 6'3" I could stand up. Loved the trip. You are #1."
Pros: "Nice people around me! Crew members more concerned about selling drinks than offering anything!"
Cons: "Left late! No compensation! Little concern from crew except to SELL drinks! After arriving it took a really long time for our luggage with no explanation!! Did it have to do with a "door problem" that caused our delay! Need to share more and be more upfront!!!"
Pros: "The other passengers were great."
Cons: "My flight was delayed so I missed the concert I was attending, so I lost money. It was extremely turbulent and I was sick. The flight attendents were extremely rude."
Cons: "baggage issue paid for personal item frontier web site confusion"
Pros: "Fast flight, nice crew."
Cons: "Extra for luggage, charging for water, 4 hour delay."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to pay for a carry-on and a seat assignment. And then to find out when on board, that I had to pay for any snack or beverage. Good thing I had a water in hand. I had flown Frontier many years ago when I received good service. This flight was just transportation....not a service oriented flight to get you to return. Also, we waited for 1/2 hour at baggage claim for our bags to finally appear..."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and efficient"
Cons: "Seats aren't the most comfortable. Tiny tray tables and the seats don't recline"
Cons: "Delayed flight and overpriced luggage fee - higher than other airlines - I have flown a few times with frontier and every flight had been delayed by mechanical problems - the flight at the gate next to mine also had the same problem."
Cons: "You could not adjust the seat backs, stuck in the upright and locked position for 4 hours. Tight leg room. Would not do it again."
Pros: "I loved the price of the tickets. My children spend the summer between Iowa and Alabama. So we travel a lot. I normally drive to Kentucky to meet up with Grandma to let them go north for part of the summer. However, this year I have planned a honeymoon, and even planned going to Virginia two weekends back to back. I thought I would fly to St. Louis from Atlanta to cut down on the driving. (I tend to get sick on road trips anyway, a flight would be nice). I found these tickets for around $50 each. I needed 3. Got them. The flight to St Louis was quick. We landed 20 mins ahead of schedule. (Made my return trip great as I was back on the same plane and was sorta freaking out about making it back to the gate in time) Landed in St Louis walked to baggage claim met up with Grandma returned with time to spare. The return flight was the same. I did not like the seats. I ended up with a massive migraine no fault of the airline but I would have loved to have been a little more comfortable. It has been a long time from my last flight and this one. The price of baggage went up. (As well as tickets which is one reason its been a while) I did notice that the airline is wanting you to prepay for baggage when you purchase the tickets. In the long run makes in SO MUCH EASIER! And with the most recent issues with TSA and getting through security that speeds things up. I paid for one checked bag. And using the frontier site was cheaper than I would have been charged at the airport. Overall I can't complain. I did make it to and from my destination on time and safely. My bag was in one piece. The seats not being the best is a minor detail. Oh. And unlike some of the other flights this one did not offer free drinks and snacks. I've flown Southwest, and Delta I was offered a soft drink and a small bag of something. I was offered to purchase these from this line. Found it odd."
Pros: "I like that it is inexpensive because I would not be able to fly otherwise."
Cons: "I've ridden Frontier several times but never have I ridden on a flight that doesn't even let you put your seat back. For a 4 hour red-eye, this was a huge disappointment."
Pros: "The attendants made sure every one was comfortable before the flight took off, after the doors were close the offered open seats to customers that looked a bit crammed. They were very accommodating. I didn't eat any food, but it smelled amazing. I would definitely suggest Frontier to any one flying I know I will be booking with them again."
Cons: "The chairs weren't the most comfortable, luckily it wasn't a long flight. Is a bit much for checked in baggage. I understand charging for extra luggage but the first checked bag should be complimentary."
Pros: "Never flew with any other airlines aside from United until I flew for the first time with Frontier. I have to say, I had a pretty good experience. I didn't expect the best accomidations compared with a major airline. But for a budget airline, I'm actually surprised and happy that there was a straight flight from MCO to STL. I couldn't find other airlines with a straight flight. I also loved how helpful the ticketing personel and boarding employee helped me out and answered some of my concerns. They were super polite and quick to help. They also had a very relaxed/laid back attitude I liked."
Cons: "I understand it's a budget airlines, but I didn't like the fact that you aren't allowed a carry-on item unless you purchase one. Most other airlines would allow one free carry-on and one free personal item. Due to this, I didn't get to pack as much as I needed for my trip. And also, it was not informed that guest had to pay for a carry-on. I was lucky enough to call the hq a day before my flight. It just so happened to be one of my concerning questions. The flight attendants were overall okay, but there were some instances that I felt they were incompetent but also not as thorough. I had trash to throw away and they passed me 3 times before I was able to throw it away. Plus I turned on my assistance light so they would come pick it up, but it took them a good 15/20 minutes to finally check in me and by that time my trash was already picked up. The seats and trays aren't as comfortable as I hoped. And I get it's a budget airlines, but that's also the reason why my flight was less comfortable or entertaining."
Pros: "Smooth flight, arrived early, fast boarding pricess."
Cons: "Everything was fine, no foodand only water for free, which was expected since rates are so low. So low score is only due to N/ A not being an option to rank."
Cons: "On both flights, the airplane wobbled during takeoff - significantly more than any other flight I've been on. Either the pilot was less skilled or the plane itself was just flimsier. Once we were in the air it was fine though."
Pros: "Our checkin went smoothly and got good seat assignments."
Cons: "Our boarding pass directed us to gate A9, but when we got there other flights were leaving there. No one was around to redirect us. We had to figure it out ourselves to go to gate A14. Also the beverage cart was out of gin."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Plane was 1.5 hours late. Seats are terrible. Charge for everything."
Pros: "Non-stop. Cre was polite."
Cons: "Up charges for everything. Baggage. Seat assignment. Penalized for not selecting up grade seat to seat with tiny arm rests, non-reclining, teenie-tiny tray table that had no use at all. Seat very uncomfortable for 2.5 hour flight. Just too cattle car-ish. With all fees they charge, i'd been better off on southwest. Also, on-line check in was a real hassle and I have a FFN with Frontier."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Pros: "Easy of the trip w/ a direct flight..."
Cons: "The fact that I had to pay for a beverages or snacks when less than 1yr. Ago those items were complimentary..."
Pros: "The option of a direct flight"
Cons: "The seats are the tightest most uncomfortable that I've ever been in and would be a deterrent to flying frontier again."
Cons: "I was able to bring my skateboard and carry on for free when i left and when i came back i was charged for both. And the attendee was rude about it."
Pros: "Flights were on time and not delayed."
Cons: "Had to purchase soda for a 3 1/2 hour flight. More expensive for bags if did not do on line 24 hrs in advance."
Pros: "planes have been updated quite a bit since the last time I flew frontier, which was a pleasant surprise"
Pros: "Pleasantly surprised. Trip was marred by alcohol service to people who were obviously already under the influence and disruptive to those of us around them."
Pros: "Crew was polite and professional. The flight was on time or early and take off and landing were uneventful."
Cons: "Seats were very hard and narrow. I got a stiff neck from having to lean sideways due to a broad shouldered man next to me. The baggage charge was pretty steep. All the additional charges add up to what a regular priced flight with comfortable seats and beverage service would be."
Cons: "The sears were so cramped Not even giving soda to passengers anymore is ridiculous."
Cons: "I wish that Frontier flew out of CAK, instead of Cleveland."
Pros: "The price and the crew"
Cons: "The seats were horrible and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew and pilots were great!"
Cons: "In all my flights, I have never been charged for my seat assignment or small carryons until flying w frontier. Looking at reviews below, looks like others have a problem w this also!!!"
Pros: "Not much. I expect to get from point a to point b on any flight, and that was done. Yippee. That's about the highlight, departing flight was delayed 1.5 hours for no good reason, excessive bag charges not made clear up front, cramped uncomfortable seats, not even a complimentary sip of water. On return flight bag fee was $10 more, I asked why, holiday rate I was told. So my small, carefully and frugally packed bag cost $70 to fly. Irritating. No more Frontier for me. And they have the gall to put a wolf on plane tail, referred to as Virginia by the flight people.Such an insult to both the animal and the woman."
Pros: "Crew much friendlier than the crew we had from St. Louis to Las Vegas. Unlike our flight from St. Louis to Las Vegas e were boarding properly with Zone 1 going first. (We paid extra for Zone 1)"
Cons: "Seating room left much to be desired. No room for my long legs"
Pros: "Friendly staff! The prices were great!"
Cons: "Very difficult & was not able to pay in advance for luggage!"
Pros: "I definitely liked the price! I enjoyed not having the food or drink unless paid for during the flight. Having this option available to passengers who wanted this service was nice. Crew members were very polite and professional, and the plane was clean."
Cons: "I had to change my sister's departing ticket because her son passed. I think that this should have been allowed free of charge due to the circumstances. When contacting Frontier, changing her flight from Thursday to Friday night or Saturday would still have cost more than purchasing another ticket, which I did. Something very wrong with this. I measured the carry on that I purchased for this flight from measurements given on your site. At the airport, the carry on was not permitted without paying for it. Your site states 8x14x18. The larger carry on, which payment is possibly required, is stated to be 10x16x24, if I understand correctly. I ended up paying 30 dollars each way, a total of $60.00 for a small carry on that I understood to be free!"
Pros: "The flight was on time! Even landed early!"
Cons: "We had to wait for a long time to get our luggage!"
Pros: "Nice seats, much space for my legs. Personal was really kind."
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Despite the fact that their ticket counter was open for other flight departures, they only allow you to check in beginning two hours before your scheduled takeoff time. This really means you have only an hour and a half until your flight begins to board. On the flight they mentioned wanting more people in the exit row, but you would have to pay an extra $50 because it has more leg room, needless to say everyone chuckled at this blatant ripoff attempt. On the flight you have two pay $2 for a small glass of water, not a bottle but a small plastic cup filled primarily with ice. When we landed we had to wait 45 minutes before the checked baggage began to arrive. Overall this is a very poor airline. Watch out for the fees as they charge you $20 for each airline interaction. I would suggest avoiding them if you can as the price rapidly rises above your ticket cost & the hassles for basic services are not worth the cost."
Cons: "Have to pay for carry-on? Paying for oxygen would be a logical next step."
Pros: "The flight was on time eac way and arrived early ."
Pros: "when I reserved my flight I was never prompted to pay for a bag to check or carry on. I would have appreciated knowing that I only was allowed a personal item. Please make that more clear in the future"
Pros: "On board the plane, the man next to me had a medical crisis event. The flight attendants on board responded immediately and ensured that he received medical help as soon as we landed. They did an amazing job staying calm."
Pros: "Nice to be flying on Frontier's brand new planes. Pay for what you want and forget the rest."
Cons: "Typical budget airline. Chairs are average and don't recline. Trays are small. You get what you pay for. They charge to carry on or checked baggage. Make sure to pay beforehand or you'll have to pay double at the airport."
Pros: "Clever improvements to seats, but I did pay for an upgrade."
Cons: "I understand the charging for upgrades, but I think it could be done more thoughtfully so that you didn't feel like you were being taken advantage of."
Pros: "The second flight was on time."
Cons: "The first flight (6:25am) was cancelled, supposedly, due to "mechanical" problems. I'm calling horse-hockey on that, because there were a lot of empty/available seats when I was checking in the night before. I was at the airport at 5am, and learned of the cancellation (rescheduled to 1:35pm) at the kiosk. The seat on the Airbus jet was the most uncomfortable imaginable. OK leg room, but absolutely no cushioning. The flight home was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever had....and it was only 2.5 hours."
Pros: "Flight was for my son. Tried to checkin and was not allowed to, since it just changed to the 45 min mark before departure. Ticket was auto cancelled. Went to southwest and booked a ticket on their direct flight which was to leave 10 min later than the Frontier flight. It actually left 8 min early, while the Frontier flight was still boarding."
Cons: "No obvious warning that Frontier requires checkin 45 min before departure or they auto cancel the ticket. Received an email from kayak 3 hours before departure, no warning there. Did not notice any warning when buying the ticket. Frontier is at the bottom of my list, for choice of carriers."
Pros: "Even our three seats cost more. Exit row seat for me costs $50.00. Extra leg room. My two daughters seats cost $16.00 each. Stan"
Pros: "I was not looking for a extravagant experience but rather an inexpensive flight. The flight was just that. No frills,as comfortable as expected. The crew was pleasant. What do you expect when you buy a Big Mac. I will definitely fly with Frontier again."
Pros: "The plane we took, eventually, did not crash."
Cons: "There was a "maintenance issue" with the plane. That can happen. But the way the airline handled it was the problem. Every couple of hours they would push back the departure time. After being delayed 6 hours they told us, "The plane IS REPAIRED, but the crew has timed out." So the departure time had to be pushed back another 3 hours. 15 minutes before that time elapsed they announced that, while they now had a crew, the plane wasn't actually fixed and they were going to bring in another plane in another 2 hours. Before boarding, they announced they needed to move some passengers to different seats, "because there were less passengers than originally scheduled" to balance the weight. This turned out to be a lie because it was a different plane model. I was moved from an upgraded seat to an unsatisfactory one with less leg room. When the plane finally did come in we sat on the tarmac for 60 minutes before taking off. They announced complimentary drinks AND snacks for the delay. And, while I don't get excited one way or another over a bag of peanuts, when the air-waitress came around and tried to charge me for the snacks and claimed that it had never been promised, it was really annoying. Delays happen. Please don't lie about what's going on."
Pros: "We arrived 30 mins before scheduled time"
Cons: "Stuartest were rude and mean. We sat on the plane for 1 hr before they took off. They had an issue with a door censor and while they fixed it the entired plane smelled burnt. This smelled persisted until we took off. It was scary to even fly in the same airplane. Next time i will pay more money and feel more securw and confident in the plane."
