Cons: "It was great"

Pros: "Crew was great especially Fawn. Best flight attendant I’ve had."

Pros: "Nothing. Delta cancelled the flight with no explanation, and ruined our last day in Omaha."
Cons: "An explanation as to why the flight was cancelled, as well as help with finding alternative accommodation. We had to fly back very early via Atlanta, and spent the day in transit, which forced us to cancel a reservation in Omaha and erased our ability to enjoy the final day of activities there."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Late flight due to ground hold EWR. Two screaming kids immediately behind me."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "WiFi never connects food"

Pros: "The staff are great very nice pleasant"

Cons: "Very old plane, 767-300. The bathrooms needed a better and more thorough renovation."

Pros: "The food was good Flight was on time plane was clean loved the crew! Flew out with them, and returned with them... so that was nice!"
Cons: "Not knowing we were being bused to plane from Terminal Boarded early because of it, created a bit of chaos and panic My tv was broken- worked intermittently need connector for iphone ear buds - should have universal ports"

Cons: "Need vegetarian meal in first class"

Pros: "Seats more comfortable, plan wasn’t too full"
Cons: "No charging port for cellphone."

Pros: "Everything. Very nice accommodating ok"

Pros: "Great. Love first class whenever price allows."

Pros: "Crew and boarding were great, which I expect from a premium carrier like delta."
Cons: "Perfect day outside, not a busy day or time to fly. The email forbhe plane being late was was too last minute. A heads up sooner would have been nice. That way we’re not waiting at the airport."

Pros: "The gate agent for this flight was a terrific multi-tasker. He was the only one at the gate managing both the incoming flight and my outgoing flight and he handled everything so efficiently, and with patience for customers' questions. He represented Delta very well."

Cons: "The plane was late for weather reasons and they overbooked the flight they had to offer $400 for next flight wasn’t until the next morning.. no entertainment system on plane"

Cons: "No LCD screen for entertainment."

Pros: "Gate agent was fantastic! Her positive demeanor made for the delays and cancellations to not seem as much of an issue. She was extremely pleasant when explaining what was happening to flights, connections, etc. She was helpful when checking boarding passes to ensure that travellers were ok for their flight."
Cons: "Again, last minute notification of delayed or cancelled flights made things somewhat worrisome. The late notification led to me missing my nest connection in Minneapolis, and having to sleep in the airport until the following morning in order to transfer my ticket to another flight leaving in the morning/afternoon/evening...very nerve-wracking to say the least."

Cons: "2 hr delay"

Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twelve hours and was not given any compensation even though i had to stay the night at the airport with no blanket or pillow and no freebies of any sort. The gates kept changing. I got up to move to the correct gate at least four times during the night. The next mornings flight was behind schedule as well. I want compensation for my poor delta experience."

Pros: "Personnel was friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "Delayed half hour and no leg room"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "45 minute delay (due to airport, not airline"

Pros: "Power outlets, snacks, beverages."

Pros: "My comfort zone seat"

Pros: "Crew was nice. Flight very smooth"
Cons: "We had to get seats at boarding because of the flight delay. She offered us two seats in the back. I knew they don't pushback so I said no. She had given the woman ahead of me two seats in comfort plus. Did not offer that and was rude. There were at least a few empty seats in that area. As a courtesy to us having 1)been delayed in Costa Rica. And then 2) a long wait for the connecting flight in Atlanta it would have been reasonable to offer those seats. Which remained empty"

Pros: "Boarding was quick. Staff and crew were friendly. Everything went well despite the 30 min delay we had on the runway. They gave us snacks and we ended up still arriving on time."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Seats"

Pros: "Nice regional jet!"
Cons: "It was a regional jet..."

Pros: "Variety of entertainment options, much was complementary, which was definitely a neat addition."
Cons: "There was a bit of a delay right before boarding, which was not the airline's fault, but air traffic control at the destination. Unfortunate, but things happen."

Pros: "the inflight service and the quality of food was outstanding."
Cons: "some choice of indian movies would be appreciated."

Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive with me"

Pros: "Polite and efficient"

Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and helpful and the new entertainment systems with the free movies are awesome. Because of the heat in the cabin we received additional beverage service and follow up waters"
Cons: "The air above my seat wasn't working for the duration of the flight and there were problems with the air throughout the cabin so it was uncomfortably warm for the whole flight."

Cons: "Two overhead bins burst open during takeoff. it's pretty scared when luggage could potentially come flying at your face."

Pros: "I'm not sure but it seemed as though the isle was wider than before or other airlines. It looks as nice not having the beverage cart hit my elbow when it went down the isle."

Pros: "Like the smaller plane: less craziness!"
Cons: "Would've been better without the delay, but the aircraft was late getting to Atlanta."

Cons: "I loked everything in my trip"

Cons: "Was delayed 1.5hrs"

Pros: "Food in first class was quite good. Flight was smooth, and arrived early."
Cons: "The boarding agents lost control of the crowd form the get go. The first class cabin crew on our side of the plane was inattentive, though it appeared on the other half of the plane the crew was very attentive. This is one of the poorer first class seats in the industry. The "lie flat" seat is just that, a lie. It is pitched at an angle, though not as steep as some. Foot cubby is narrow and constrictive, bordering on claustrophobic."

Pros: "Great crew and service. Drink were served all the time. Everyone was extra nice"

Cons: "Small cramped and uncomfortable plane."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Left late and had a middle seat"

Pros: "good luggage space overhead - accommodate wheelie vertically like books. each seat had indiv tv screen, recent movies, usb charger, 3 prong charger."

Pros: "There is nothing positive to say besides it got me where I needed to go, even though my first flight was cancelled and had to completely redirect to another airport an that took me 2 hours to get to."
Cons: "Everything, the staff was rude especially at the gate. I was forced to check my bag not because of size but because I was in Group 6 boarding and I got on there was plenty of room on the plane. I had even explained I needed to do work and would have to hold everything in my arms."

Cons: "American Airlines cancelled this flight and then sent one of my two checked luggages to another flight to Newark from Chicago O'Hare and didn't even think to put me and the luggage I left behind on said flight? Either they should have left both and let me deal with it OR send me on a flight."

Pros: "Delayed 4 hours. Strung along the entire time. Awful experience. Inability to get hotel."

Pros: "The crew was excellent. Very helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "They seem to have a lot of technical issues. The flight to my destination was cancelled about 8 hours prior to the flight due to maintenance issues with the plane. The computer system at the airport crashed on the return flight and caused a long delay. I won’t fly AA again."

Pros: "Crew"

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Plane was hot and smelly upon boarding; turbulence on landing caused delay with no updates from pilot"

Pros: "Delayed"
Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "Instead of flying MIA-EWR I was sent to ORD and then to EWR arriving at 11:00pm"

Cons: "Departure gate staff forced passengers to check bags, when there were multiple empty overhead bins on the plane at takeoff. This makes no sense."

Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Took off 40 min late without explanation"

Pros: "Got to Nj safe"
Cons: "3hr delay leaving; delays in getting bags at baggage claim"

Pros: "The on-board attendants were personable and efficient."
Cons: "The lack of overhead storage was not noted at the gate so about half the passengers had to have their hand luggage tagged on the plane itself, involving wheeling to the back to be tagged. Then once everyone was seated, the attendant wheeled them by and passengers had to call out when they saw their bag go by so that they could be issued the corresponding luggage claim ticket. The seat width and pitch was sad compared to 'low cost' airlines like JetBlue."

Cons: "A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents."

Cons: "They damage my luggage both of my suitcases broken and the airline doesn't give me an answer and doesn't want to reimburse me the money I paid for the suitcases. Airline good for nothing."

Cons: "Bought a sandwich which was old ..."

Cons: "American has the smallest seat space out of any airline I have been on and it is heinous."

Cons: "Kiosk sign-in tried to sell several upgrades prior to issuing boarding pass. Very irritating! Seating was very cramped"

Pros: "ON TIME"
Cons: "NO ROOM TO BREATHE. AISLE TOO SMALL TO WALK WITHOUT HITTING SOMEONE AA IS MAKING BILLIONS PER YEAR IN PROFIT. SO CHEAP, YET PRICES ARE SOOOOOOO HIGH"

Pros: "Nice staff, on time"

Pros: "Purchased extra legroom -- on time boarding"

Pros: "Leave and arrive on time"

Pros: "Helpful staff"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable and noisy flight kid behind us cried the whole trip no food no tv nowhere to charge phone no internet just bad experience overall"

Pros: "Wifi available. Big plus!"

Pros: "Free checked bag"
Cons: "2 hour delay No food to buy or drinks"

Pros: "It was all good.it was"

Cons: "I was supposed to be in stand by and the screen continue showing I could go to the counter and get a seat and I have to wait till the end so that I was going to be given a middle seat. I said forget about it, to pay 75 dlls for a change of ticket and you make me wait till the end to give me seat u want, forget it, I know this is stand by ticket but I dont like the attitude of the people, they dont help you at all really bad service you should learn from other airlines giving at least if you are delayed an apology and sometimes miles reward, not just food... Thanks for the SERVICE (i dont flight with you no more, even though cheap flights, but cheap things are expensive)"

Pros: "Not much"

Pros: "I did not like anything about the flight to be honest. Oh wait you did have cool club lights that were blue that tried to distract me from the fact that I had to take an American airlines flight."
Cons: "Holy moly. You know if you stopped charging extra money for checked baggage you wouldn't have a ridiculously annoying amount of customers with too many bags for overhead storage. Then you wouldn't have to threaten your customers to store their small bags under the seat. Then I would have room for my feet under the seat. When I would have been comfortable. I also wouldn't have to annoy my neighbor with trying to move and get comfortable. But instead the exact opposite happened and I'm offended you guys have America anywhere near your name."

Waste of money."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Cost"
Cons: "OMG, miffed and aggravated right now!! Currently on Allegiant Flight 1355. PIE to CVG A non-eating flight. These POSs MFers decide to have a friggen pizza party in the middle of the flight"

Pros: "Allegiant is a Budget airline. Good fares and great service. Nonstop service to less traveled destinations"

Pros: "That we landed safely in 20 mph winds."
Cons: "Stop stuffing too many people in an airplane, stop charging for every little thing, nothing nice or fun about flying in the US.It is just the fastest way to get to places..International airlines are much better and not cattle planes."

Pros: "Non-stop flight at a reasonable price"

Cons: "Started with constant delays. Flight ended up leaving around 8:30 when the flight was supposed to leave at 5:59. Once boarded there were no snacks, no liquor and only a few options to drink. The flight attendant was mumbling and kept on messing up what he was supposed to say the entire flight."

Pros: "Great price, flight on time , great trip would use again"

Cons: "The seating is terrible. Everyone is like sardines packed away."

Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable- they do not recline and the springs in the seat back pole into your back"

Pros: "Great assistance with a wheelchair to board, and gate crew in CVG is super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "After landing, we spent a hour sitting in the plane, waiting for a gate. After the entire plane had deboarded, it took another 15 minutes for them to bring my husband's wheelchair up from the gate checked storage."

Pros: "Flight went smooth"
Cons: "I checked into my flight with luggage to check in. The lady behind the counter said I could not check my luggage that the only way for it to get on the plane was to take it through the TSA checkpoint. They confiscated everything in my bag that was over 3oz which was quite a bit of stuff hence the reason why I was trying to check it in. I will not be flying Allegiant air again."

Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time. Boarding was OK."
Cons: "Not even water provided on flight. I miss amenities."

Cons: "Flight delayed 3 hours coming in and 5 hours going back. This is unacceptable. I will never fly Allegiant Airlines again."

Cons: "High baggage fees. Airplane sat for 30 min after boarding for fueling and some type of technical specifications. Seats don't recline."

Cons: "Worst plane trip. I am a bigger girl, and I could not even buckle my seat belt due to the size of the chair. I have never had this issue on any other plane flight. It was incredibly noisy, and rough ride. I will not travel again."

Pros: "While I enjoy the fact that Allegiant offers direct flights to Laredo at an affordable price, the planes really need to be updated."
Cons: "We really disliked that we boarded the plane and just before taking off they made us get off again and never did confirm the real reason. The planes really need better maintenance since this is the second time in two weeks we have to change planes due to problems."

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Charge for carry on and in flight snacks and drinks (sodas,juices,water)"

Pros: "Allegiant is a great flying experience! A little bit of a wait at BLV,but that will be fixed once they get the other TSA checking completed. VLP was a smooth and easy experience!"
Cons: "We weren't given a menu in the Kayak App to choose seats or bags at purchase. Kayak needs to rectify this. It caused us to spend more money on our bags especially..."

Pros: "That fact that they did not suply even one free bottle or cup of water is awful. I was very thirsty but did not get a drink because they chaged $2.00 for one bottle of water, and the is just plain wrong."

Pros: "The prices are good. Anything additional (food, overhead carry on space) is an additional cost but this is how they make the tickets cheaper for people who don't need extras."

Pros: "Arrived an hour before flight. Check in took 25 min and tsa 30 minutes. Tried to go through expedite line but agent refused to let me even though flight was leaving in 30 minutes. I have received better treatment in new York airports than here in Myrtle Beach. Who would have thought. There were 3 others that missed the flight. Why would they not just let's be expedited?"
Cons: "See above"

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!"

Cons: "Delayed the flight for 7 and a half hours. They then tried to not refund my money"

Pros: "Early"
Cons: "United just gives you the sense that no one cares."

Pros: "We were told that this was due to the weather at destination ( Newark) but the weather in Newark was fine. Hence, not sure if it is the airline ( United) or the air traffic controllers that caused the delay. United blamed the controllers. The Captain was very courteous apologizing many times for the delay ."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Boarded plane with my 8 week old baby. After getting settled had to deplane due to mechanical issues. Then I stalled feeding as he has to nurse during takeoff to relieve pressure. Airline kept slightly postponing it so wasn't comfortable nursing as I needed him to eat during takeoff. But no realistic time was ever given. Eventually they cancelled flight and they rebooked next day. Then united realized they would have to give travel vouchers / hotel if flight was cancelled so they re labeled it "delayed" to avoid putting everyone up in a hotel. 13.5 hrs of a delay overnight is not a delay and deserves better treatment! To add insult to injury, my GATE checked stroller took 45 min to come up to the top of the jetway. 45 minutes! I had to ask 4 times with a screaming 8 week old with nowhere to set him! The kind girl kept paging down to them but nobody would bring it up. It was absolutely horrible. Then today at check-in they couldn't figure out how to print the infant boarding pass which ultimately took 30-40 min of the lady trying to no avail. I arrived 1 hr 10 min early to my flight and nearly missed it due to United. The issues with printing my "infant voucher" caused me to have to run through the airport and frantically collapse stroller to make on time. With zero sleep thanks to the debacle the night before. Beyond disappointed and believe should be compensated for this experience."

Cons: "Nothing to report. All good"

Pros: "on time. spacious. afforable"

Pros: "I got there safely, on time."
Cons: "I fly Frontier only when I absolutely have no other choice. The seats don't recline and they nickle and dime you for everything, including carry on baggage."

Pros: "The staff was friendly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, and there was poor communication in the waiting area other than making sure your baby item extras were tagged. People with children were told to be ready to board early, but we were the 3rd group to board. I had to pay $3 for my daughter to have juice to drink (no beverage or snack included) after I had to pay extra to get seats assigned to be together with my 3 year old."

Cons: "price for the trip does not include that you have to pay for Carry-on, which is an odd expense to passengers. Especially for shorter trips with the round trip the carry on charge would equal up to at least $60. Which would equal to another airline who is comparatively better especially because those airlines aren't worrying about charging the customers for every single thing. Additionally, Frontier isn't a participant of the TS-Pre Check program, which Frontier should advertise."

Pros: "Cancelled flight could not get us on until We from Monday.Said they sent you a communication but we got no email"

Cons: "frontier was awful. they pushed our flight out of new york back three times and then canceled in the middle of the night, saying they didn't have partnerships with other airlines so couldn't get us out until the 25th (the day before our return flight). we talked to both customer service on the phone (20 minute wait to get someone) and gate agents and EVERYONE said they weren't authorized to give us a refund for any of the inconvenience and unanticipated expenses. ultimately we ended up flying out of philly (paying for our own bus tickets) on AMERICAN (paying for another flight with our own money) to get to our family in denver. on the way back they weren't going to let us check luggage for free, again saying no one was authorized to do that until thankfully they discovered a note from the manager we spoke to in nyc. otherwise they would not have given it to us even after we spoke to the manager in denver. we boarded our return flight to find that we couldn't sit down as someone had vomited (not frontier's fault), and that was the cherry on top. we just burst out laughing because the whole thing was a disaster. we ended up spending the same amount as our "inexpensive" frontier tickets and more on fixing the trip ourselves because they wouldn't help us at all. truly a terrible experience and i don't anticipate flying frontier again."

Cons: "The lines were huge, staff wasn't willing to help, we had to separate traveling with my husband, he paid for our bags and didn't get checked in, he took a different airline to get home, but frontier didn't refund the $80 he spent and didn't get checked in, so unacceptable. The people with earlier flights should be taken cared of, instead of keeping everyone waiting inside and outside. We're beyond disappointed"

Cons: "You send e-mail notices to me but I cannot access e-mail away from home as I am not into smart gadgets. I checked at home for flight status but by the time I drove 70 minutes to the airport, the flight was delayed, and delayed, and delayed. Once at Denver, we sat on the tarmac for 4 1/2 hours waiting for a gate. Southwest deplaned people on the tarmac. Once at the gate, we had to wait another 15 min for a jetway operator and someone to operate the TUG/generator. And my consolation prize was a 4 oz cup of water. YIPPEE!!"

Pros: "Worst airline. I keep kicking myself for booking with them but you get what you pay for."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very friendly, I was greeted on the plane with a smile."
Cons: "Paying for carry-ons and drinks, somewhat of a lack of professionalism with boarding one lady was short with me about a carry on. Took us a long time to take off after being seated because they didn't have the luggage loaded yet."

Pros: "Lumbar supports in the seats. Service and cleanliness were both great."

Pros: "No complaints for the crew."
Cons: "My complaint seems to be the number one complaint for the company. They offer reasonable fees only to hit you with fees for everything when it's time to check in. Your asked to pay for your seat, checked bags and carry ons coming and going. They offer a package price of $63 per person coming and going that makes your overall trip more expensive than going with a top carrier for a trip for two. Not worth the headache and will never travel with them again."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Staff was rude, flights delayed for no reason, seats are uncomfortable, you don't even offer a complimentary drink (soda or water) I will never fly through frontier again"

Cons: "There was no clearly stated in the online booking instructions that a carry-on baggage is not included in the ticket total price. It happened to be a very unpleasant surprise during the check in."

Cons: "The attendant told us the flight was delayed and after 4 hours waiting we were informed the flight was cancelled without any explanation! This is ridiculous"

Pros: "That I didn't miss my flight"
Cons: "The lady at the counter was very nasty not helpful at all. Then the plane took off a hour late..."

Cons: "Delayed flights both directions, incredibly unorganized, lack of information, when crew arrived they rolled their eyes when we all asked questions. Messy boarding, insane lines at check-in to do bag drop. Just awful experience all around. Would rather spend $150 on another airline to not experience that again."

Cons: "It sacked! After waiting 1.5 hours and being told the flight was going to be delayed over 3 hours it was cancelled! These people deserve NO business!!"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delay in take off Communication not so clear"

Pros: "My True Experience"
Cons: "I like the fact that the pilot informed us of pertinent information like time expected to arrive, Turbulence and why, how long we maybe staying in the runway and why. The stewardesses were very nice, professional and patient with some of the annoying passengers."

Pros: "A lot of leg room!"
Cons: "The crew on both flights weren't very nice"

Pros: "Nothing. They did half their job."
Cons: "Their ticket counter at LGA is hardly ever open and when it is their employees are rude. They tried to charge me $410 to change a flight i originally paid $210 for. I tried to move it one day. Also, get ready for a 30 min sales pitch for their credit card. Talk about a captive audience. Garbage airline. Do not use."

Cons: "Late boarding and take off"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Hidden fees. Aircraft was freezing. Got a migrane"

Cons: "no ability to get the seat to recline, even a bit."

Cons: "Never flying Frontier again."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "First, we were late which I understand. We sat after we landed for forty five minutes. My brothers checked bags were at a different baggage claim and it took forty more minutes."

Pros: "The extra charges, delays, the fees for ANY refreshment, the luggage delay/drop on the WRONG carousel. Terrible. Everyone on our flight shared the same remorse for booking Frontier after years of not. DONT DO IT!!!!!"

Pros: "We got there ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The carry on fee and seat fee. Come on!"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats; ruined handle on luggage;"

Pros: "Nothing!!"
Cons: "Everything."

Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Everything else. Hidden fees, uncomfortable seats. No wifi, no outlets, paying for water."

Cons: "Extra charges"

Pros: "The ire of the seats was very good"
Cons: "I did not like the multiple delays that the air line had"

Pros: "Boarding was great, nice & smooth"
Cons: "There were two of the most loud & disruptive children on board traveling with a mother who had no interest in trying to calm them down or separate them. They were old enough to know how to behave and this all started well before the cabin doors closed - they LITERALLY drew blood from one another. Why did the crew leave it to other passengers to have to say something? If they had been drunk & belligerent adults they would have been removed but because they were belligerent children everyone looked the other way. It made for a completely miserable experience like none other I've ever experienced on any airline."

Pros: "Nothing! Besides one lady that was nice."
Cons: "Everything! They charged me $60 for my carry on bag, didn't have free peanuts or water, and was very uncomfortable!!!"

Cons: "My girlfriend and I struck up a conversation with a woman sitting next to us in our row about an hour into the flight. About 10 minutes after that we notice the woman in front of us is glaring at us, writhing around in histrionics, holding her ears, cursing to her husband and basically making every passenger around her look at each other wondering "what is going on with this woman"? Finally this woman turns around and is staring at us. I ask her if there is a problem, and she replies "yeah. There is. You're saying "like" too much. Can you just shut up?". Wrong thing to say to me. I called her a few choice words which I won't repeat, then her husband gets his tough guy act going, by this time everyone around our seats are uncomfortable at the rising confrontation. The flight crew come over and try to move them, but they refuse to move. My girlfriend and I end up moving our seats to avoid the flight being diverted and ruining everyone else's plans. For the last hour of the trip we sat seperately in the back of the plane. Once I moved I was speaking to an older couple next to me about their plans, showing a visiting family the features of the New York skyline as we landed and giving them advice on traveling in NYC, so apparently my voice didn't cause anyone else who wasn't either drunk or crazy to begin an argument with me. I know the issue has nothing to do with kayak or the airline, just a maladjusted few people that can't be in public, but that was hands down the worst flight I have ever had."

Cons: "Very poor I paid for emergency exit seats an extra fee and they let anybody sit there that didn't pay I feel ripped off"

Cons: "Bag fees, landing in Fort Collins, no ground transportation information"

Cons: "They charge for everything."

Pros: "Staff did a typical job, everyone was nice, nothing notable."
Cons: "Frontier airlines is awful. With all the added fees, I could have just booked with Delta or another airline that at least offers their passengers water without charging for it. Or charging for my bag. What a joke. Not worth the "discount" at all and would never bother booking with them again."
