The flight staff were polite, seats were comfortable, and we reached our destinations on time. This was my first time traveling first class since the pandemic. The difference in service was dramatic and made me seriously regret having paid three times more for a first class ticket. Specifically No Sky Cap lounge - One of the main reasons I traveled first class was to use the Sky Cap lounge since we were going to have to wait for our flight for several hours at PDX. PDX Sky Cap would not allow us to enter as first class passengers. The receptionist said we needed to have their American Express Card. Further the Las Vegas Sky Cap lounge is permanently closed. Food - Our first flight was early in the morning, so I thought no need to grab breakfast in the airport, I'm traveling first class. The only food we were served or offered between LAS and PDX was Biscoff cookies. Our return trip was the same. Seems the days of being served a hot meal in first class are long gone.
Offer better food options . Even if for purchase
Wasn't a very good selection of entertainment. The chairs were a bit uncomfortable.
Pros: "Crew and service was amazing"
Cons: "Paid $28 for internet and it didn’t work"
Pros: "Went very smoothly. Very comfortable."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "Plane was clean & modern"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Pilot explained the flight path and landmarks along the way. Crew was friendly to us and welcomed our baby onboard before many other pax boarded."
Cons: "Seats were narrow and I’m not a big guy. 6’0”. 185."
Pros: "They got me an air sick bag since there were none in the pockets. Bathroom was very clean. Chair had bendy headrests. Didn’t have to check my bag."
Cons: "Very turbulent, seat did not stay reclined. On a redeye flight, this was the key misery-maker. Seat in front was reclined so no possible position to sleep from the middle seat, even for a short person."
Pros: "In flight service was fast and well organized. The dinner was very good. Flight was turbulent free and no isues."
Cons: "The plane was at the gate but it took over an hour for international inspection and a long time for the plane to be cleaned."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable but crowded. Was nice to have the built in screen for entertainment."
Cons: "Did not like being bumped to a flight with a five hour layover in SLC. Travel day was already very long. We booked the flight originally based on the shorter layover of an hour and a half. Seemed very inconsiderate."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Hot in the plane and the landing was uncomfortable"
Cons: "Seats did NOT recline, which seems to be a pretty poor planning for a red eye flight."
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Pros: "The pilot, Mr. Howes, I believe, came out and personally thanked everyone for flying Delta. It was a nice touch to see the actual pilot that was flying and me home and that he shared his gratitude. Go DELTA!!"
Pros: "The crew members were excellent and efficient. Europe was fabulous."
Cons: "9+ hours in the air is never fun when you're in economy class: humans have gotten bigger as airline seats grow smaller."
Pros: "I was moved to an end Seat, as I was in constant leg pain."
Cons: "I was zitting against my Neighbor as the Seats are so narrow."
Pros: "Flight was quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "Felt claustrophobic after a while because guy in seat next to me was rather large and spilling into my seat"
Cons: "I was placed on an earlier flight as soon as I arrived at the Portland airport. The flight was full, there was no room for my bag in the overhead bins. The bag was checked, not to just Seattle but all the way to Venice. Well, surprise, surprise, the bag was lost on the way to Venice. KLM does not allow enough time in Amsterdam for luggage to make a connecting flight."
Pros: "Movies selection were good, snacks were pretty good"
Cons: "Why make someone pay for an upgraded seat that doesn’t recline? Terrible. Also delayed the flight by an hour, no explanation, and no idea if connections would be made or not. Had to run to my connection and they almost didn’t let me on. Smh"
Pros: "Delta worked with us on rebooking a flight after we messed up. Onboard the staff was incredibly friendly and the free snack selection was decent (even gluten free treats). Boarding was an orderly process."
Pros: "The entertainment was really good and the service was excellent. Flight attendants were great. Enjoyed my complimentary beverage and on time departure and arrival."
Cons: "It was hard to understand what zone was boarding. Hard to hear and understand made It impossible. And the plane seemed smaller, seats were very close to one another, and it was difficult to get comfortable. I'm not big either."
Pros: "On time, free beer , good price"
Cons: "No movie, no charging telephone"
Cons: "I will make it my sole purpose to let everyone I know and review this on every site. Kayak messed up our flights so badly and then would not fix them. I spent 4 hours being bounced between airlines and travel sites just to be screwed with for a mistake Kayak made and would not fix. Worst company ever!"
Pros: "ATL based crew was great. Exit row extra room as promised"
Cons: "Cheese snack purchased was not up to par. Grapes soft, almonds mealy and cheese dried out. Disappointing. New faster Wi-Fi was intermittent at best. Down for long stretches."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "really great service, arrived early, as good as it gets."
Pros: "Better seats"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Crew were good, flight on time, free drinks"
Cons: "TSA Pre-check info not loaded on flight from LAX to PDX."
Pros: "Typical flight, all went well. Special services picked me up at the plane."
Pros: "Friendliness of the staff"
Cons: "No complaints. I wish that the updates on the flight delay were a little clearer, but that's about it."
Pros: "The airline crew seems to be getting better, although I can't say that they are super helpful"
Cons: "The seats, just water offered, the bathroom, no Wifi, extremely crowded and small plane. Seriously, I don't understand what is all the money payed used for since I just heard that the crew members might be actually underpaid"
Pros: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Cons: "Seating has gotten WAY too tight. Will not do that again ... discomfort, inability to even stretch a little bit caused painful nerve flare?"
Pros: "Smooth flight; informative crew"
Pros: "Kindness and politeness, on time lots of explaining"
Cons: "Beyond seat space all was perfect"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Nothing- good flight, I couldn't sleep but that wasn't your fault"
Pros: "Delta has a good business product. The entertainment system was good. The food was good."
Cons: "The business class crew struck me as distracted and putout to be there."
Cons: "Snacks if possible"
Cons: "I chose my seats when I purchased tickets thru Expedia. Then for some reason Delta wouldn't allow me to keep my seats and I had to have them assigned at boarding. Why? What causes this? I was stuck in the back of the small jet from Minneapolis to Cwa when there were a few open seats in the middle. Disappointed. I won't be choosing Delta in the future!"
Pros: "I trusted Delta to take of my clients; Delta usually did. Rather, the employees of Delta did. Now when I travel, I prefer Delta (when they aren't too much more economically). Let me change that to I used to prefer Delta, because the times, they are achanging. My home airport is Atlanta, I'm usually traveling to Seattle or Portland; Delta is king in those routes. There's more flight time options, and the entertainment available is better."
Cons: "Here's where the picky comes in. I downloaded the 'Go Go" wifi app beforehand. When I tried to connect I received a message that it wasn't available on my routes. Why couldn't they tell me that it might not work on my routes before they took my money? Further, why wasn't it available? It's not like I was going on a multi city/country trip, this was Atlanta to Portland non-stop. Then there's the 'Premier Seating". I opted for it on my outbound flight and received TSA Pre Check. I didn't buy the seating coming back; I did not receive TSA Pre Check. Coincidence? My fare was more than Alaska Airlines was offering it for, I paid for the wifi that didn't work, and in order to avoid the back of the plane, you must pay. So, I guess I'll be going to Alaska Airlines. They don't have as many flights, but I don't feel dinged for more money every time I turn around."
Pros: "Long flight but smooth despite delays"
Cons: "Delayed by 2.5 hours."
Pros: "When flying using the big carriers, Delta is becoming our go to airline for timeliness and comfort."
Check in was hard and slow for American Airlines. However the flight was fine.
I dreaded the flight. I was pleasantly surprised how nice the passengers and employees were. After watching the news I expected bedlam and rude people. Everyone everywhere wore masks without hesitation. There were no problems.
This was not a direct route, so it took longer than it should. Connecting in Minneapolis or Chicago would have made better sense than Dallas.
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather. That is understandable. However the crew was not helpful in sharing any information with customers about changes to connecting flights. Much time was wasted and I had to reschedule my flight. The staff members that booked my hotel and my new flight were short and brief and not very helpful or accommodating or informative. Overall I didn’t not feel like a welcomed guest and I do not feel enough compensation was offered for such an inconvenience. Not being able to have my bag overnight was a hassle. I had no clean clothes and had to throw out my contacts because I had no solution. I also couldn’t use the meal voucher they gave me because everywhere in the airport was closed by that time. No stipend was given for toiletries or food delivery. Very unimpressed."
Pros: "Very accommodating crew as we were traveling with my elderly grandmother."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Decaf tea"
Pros: "Flight was mostly smooth."
Cons: "Flight crew announcements were too loud and too frequent. Landing at PHL was unusually rough."
Pros: "Crew seemed friendly and considerate"
Cons: "Flight from SLT was delayed by weather, so our flight left almost one hour late."
Pros: "The crew did a great job."
Cons: "Seating is very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Flight had a/c that didn’t cool - everyone was incredibly hot and complaining. Flight delayed for an hour and a half with no reason."
Pros: "amazing seat and awesome crew couldn't ask for more"
Pros: "Arrived early with great service which is most important when flying."
Cons: "Entertainment was not on par with competitors like Delta, especially on a long flight. Movies depended on downloading the gogo app before you boarded which most were not aware of until we were airborne."
Pros: "The most cramped seats ever"
Cons: "Had to take shuttle to other side of airport which took over an hour. Very very poor experience. Also, Seats had no room pull down table."
Cons: "The flight crew from PDX to CLT were not very customer service friendly. I was quite underimpressed."
Pros: "Landed safely and on time. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Cramped. Older plane missing USB plugs. Entertainment requires an app. Bathroom door still has ashtray. Should have been cheaper for what I got which was a regular ticket for a 5'8" 160lb person."
Pros: "Crew is very nice, we were on time and baggage didn't get lost for once."
Cons: "Seats are simply too tight, not enough space for carry-on, and boarding procedures are a joke."
Pros: "The crew was nice and so was the American Airlines customer service office in Phoenix"
Cons: "I didn’t like the male and female check in people in Portland. They sat there and watched me for an hour not telling me I could not use cash to check in my luggage at the gate after they told me it was double the amount to check it in at the gate. The sight u use on the boarding pass u download on the phone is not clear. It says baggage fee +$25.00. I thought it was 25.00 till the women in Phoenix showed me the + sign. She said “it is confusing”. I did not buy the ticket because it was for an unexpected funeral of my sister. My other sister did so I didn’t see all the stuff from Travelocity. After telling me it would be $50.00 the check in male and female at the gate saw me sitting there for an hour and never told me I couldn’t pay cash. By the time it was boarding time if a nice woman did not offer to use her credit card and I have her the $50 cash I would have missed my flight. The manager at the gate in Portland even told me I would miss my flight. The two check in staff at the gate said “well we didn’t know you only had cash” and they weren’t even concerned that I was going to miss my flight. It would of been nice of them to tell me this when I sat there for an hour after they told me They we’re doubling the price. I would of had time to go back through security, only pay $25.00 and the other nice passenger would have not had to use her credit card. Very rude and poor service especially after a sad occasion of burying your sister!"
Cons: "Flights from PDX to BOS cancelled. Rerouted to PHX. All flights out of BOS, DC, Philly cancelled. I missed my Habitat for Humanity trip, not getting any refunds on flights or hotels. Out thousands and no one is helping me."
Pros: "A nice uneventful trip"
Cons: "Seats smaller than before."
Pros: "Flight was one time. Flight crew was also polite and attentive."
Cons: "Plane was more cramped than the flight to Portland, even though both planes were 737's."
Pros: "Overall solid flight"
Pros: "Nice flight once we finally boarded!"
Cons: "Flight was late causing me to run for my connecting international flight in LAX."
Pros: "Entertainment Captain Food"
Pros: "I liked the inflight entertainment."
Cons: "The flight attendants going down the middle aisle and bumping me as I had an aisle seat."
Pros: "Very efficient crew. Pleasant enough"
Cons: "Bumpy flight, obviously not something that could be helped (tho the pilot came on and said he was hoping to find a smoother altitude, greatly appreciate him trying!)"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was perfect, new, and relevant. I also had an empty seat between myself and another passenger so my legs weren't as cramped."
Pros: "Ticket agents at all airports were helpful and very considerate."
Cons: "We were not able to print our boarding passes the day before as expected per the website and purchase docs for the tickets, despite providing passport numbers (several times) and Global Entry registrations. Had to go to a ticket desk at first departure and third departure points to have them printed, with no explanations given. Also not allowed to choose our seats for the third leg. Food was barely edible. Paid extra for roomier seats on one leg, making it more comfortable, but were extremely tight on another leg which had many empty seats scattered throughout the cabin. Cabin attendants seemed more interested in pushing items that generated revenue than providing the ones that came with the ticket (which is never cheap to begin with)."
Cons: "Due to mechanical issues our 8am flight kept getting delayed in 30 minute increments until around 9:45 when the front desk attendants told us the necessary part had to be driven from Seattle and wouldn't be available until noon, and that their was no certainty the part would work, and that we should make other arrangements. So we did, but their earliest we could get us into Chicago was 9:30pm (original arrival was 2pm). We booked the arrangements only to find out that our original flight took off at 10:55 and American didn't even attempt to contact us. The cherry on top was that our flight (which was indirect through SFO) got delayed and we're now going to miss our connection in SFO. So currently looking at 10:30pm arrival in Chicago."
Pros: "The crew is caring and attentive. AA is upgrading all their planes and the individual monitors so you can watch and/or listen to any entertainment you wants. Plane left on time and arrive early, making transfer less stressful."
Pros: "Entertainment and great beverage options"
Pros: "The switch up w amaerican air Can't find flight for check in no one is on the phone over night. Finally figured out the prob. Did like amer air And all the shuttling. Chaos"
Pros: "The flight attendants were super nice. The flight went smoothly."
Cons: "Let's get some tvs on the backs of the seats!"
Cons: "I used to fly with American Airlines a lot more and every time the staff somehow finds a way to be rude and ruin my day so I try to avoid this airline. On this particular flight it was the very rude asian flight attendant that really set the mood. The attitude of the staff really makes or breaks the experience and it seems like American Airlines doesnt care about the quality of thier employees"
Pros: "Pretty comfortable"
Pros: "I like that they had a TV show showing at no extra cost"
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable, I've been on planes before but after an hours I couldn't get comfortable at all."
Pros: "From getting called stupid by Linda B in the phl airport bc I used the first class check-in computers vs the regular ones, then she says "what you can't spell"? After I asked for her name, what a horrible overall experience from American airline s. Won't ever fly your airline again. I'll pay more money to avoid your company.."
Cons: "Zero entertainment on flighta out to weSr coast. Plane was very hot during red eye coming back."
Cons: "Ticket agent would not let me pay for up grade was first flight for me to fly with my wife she sat in first class while I was at the back of the plane!! And there was a seat available for me in first class he just wouldn't let me have it I would not recommend American to any one"
Pros: "The in flight attendants were very helpful. They never got upset with anyone when I got walked passed my seat while boarding and had traffic backed up while boarding.Such a pleasant flight. I would rather fly American Airlines than spirit, United."
Cons: "The only thing I can say I didn't like was the vents did not blow the air condition hard enough. .."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The flight, attendants, timeliness"
Cons: "Unable to check in unless paying extra for only available seats. At DFW was scolded for nit checkibg in sooner and was assigned "the last seat" because of overbooking. Same today trying to check in JAN to DFW. Must pay extra or wait untill get to airport.Reserved months ago. Assign seat upon reservation!"
My family in Arizona didn’t have a printer to print our return flight tickets, so I took a screenshot of our tickets on my phone. Apparently, when you go through security they enlarge the QR code, which makes it blurry, so it can’t be scanned. We had to go back to the check in desk and pay $5 for each ticket to be printed. Lesson learned, print out all flight tickets before you leave.
Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours. No honest apology"
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Half the flight didn't wear masks, crew didn't bother to enforce."
Cons: "Seemed understaffed at the airport, never anyone around to answer questions about why our plane wasn't even there until 20 minutes after we were supposed to have boarded. They finally showed up, but didn't mention that we'd be delayed (which I eventually found out thanks to a KAYAK alert). Kept telling us the flight would be 62 minutes, but it ended up taking forever. Probably not Allegiant's fault, but they acted like they wanted to hide the fact, rather than own up to it and apologize for the inconvenience as if they valued all of us as passengers."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "A little Snack"
Cons: "No help with the Coronavirus bs. Customer service blows"
Cons: "I see no reason why the airlines cannot provide a beverage and snack - I think they still make plenty of money off our tickets and how much could this really cost them?"
Cons: "Flight attendants talked loudly the whole flight. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, boarding process was easy, spacious aisles"
Cons: "The seats do not recline and are not very comfortable. Drinks and snacks are not complimentary"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Not having so many extra charges and having to pay for a carry on"
Cons: "Everything went quickly and smoothly. Great flight; even the weather was less turbulent than expected."
Pros: "The actual flight was comfortable and the crew was good."
Cons: "Flight time was pushed back a few weeks ago. Slow boarding process so we landed about 30 min late."
Pros: "The crew was good , plane was delayed and late for departure. Second flight was delayed by 2 1/2 hours , I just can’t catch a break !!"
Cons: "I could not log onto the website and check my carryon bag , cost me $50 at check in. It would not recognize my number for the first flight. I’m a known traveler on Frontier so I did log in with them ."
Pros: "LEFT EARLY ARRIVED EARLY PERFECT"
Cons: "Woke up to a notice saying my flight was delayed 2 hours. So I took my time leaving. Then Got another notice saying it was delayed only 16 min. I live 1.5hrs away! Several people missed the flight because of this."
Cons: "Fight was changed then late"
Pros: "Stewardess moved me to a more comfortable seat without me asking."
Pros: "People in my row."
Cons: "Flight was very late. Have to pay $45 for a carry-on bag. Seats were uncomfortable and have to pay for all snacks and drinks including water."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 9 hrs. We were going to NYC for 2 days. We missed an entire day--- cut our trip in half."
Pros: "Quick flight and overall nice crew."
Pros: "Kids board first and you dont have to worry about seating if u have a young child. Also, the nonstop flight was so relaxing."
Cons: "Not much..."
Pros: "Smaller airports make travel easier, and more relaxed. No frills--to get even water on the flight you'll pay for a bottle. Personnel all tend to be friendly and helpful. With Allegiant I've learned to pack lightly and plan travel carefully. It's been worth it as I have been able to see friends and family more often. We even took an impromptu vacation this year when we found a great deal on airfare."
Pros: "Priority check-in and boarding were pleasant."
Cons: "Very tight seats, even for a small person. No recline. Screaming children throughout the cabin."
Cons: "I understand that Allegiant has a pricing structure to implement, but forcing passengers to keep personal items between their feet when most of the overhead compartments were empty was just insulting and ridiculous - not to mention dangerous. In the event of extreme turbulence (or worse), all those personal items would be flying around the cabin."
Pros: "2 hours and one flight. Done!"
Cons: "No entertainment"
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: "Flights were all on time"
Cons: "Allegiant 468 7/27 4 1/2 hour delay on flight 569 on 7/27 and not a single person on the ground or plane even said sorry. Allegiant also failed to update the revised departure time. Allegiant posted an initial delay of 30 minunutes but then, when there was a further 2 hour delay due to a problem with the plane in Vegas Allegiant didn't update the time. (G4 568 was showing a two hour delay, with a 1010 arrival into STS but Allegiant never updated the departure time for 569 to reflect the additional two hour delay.) It wasn't until I called that it got updated and when I called I had to point out that the airplane hadn't even left Vegas and Allegiant was still showing an 8:50 departure time. It also took the reservation agent over 20 minutes to get any information about what was going on. Lastly each and every time I call I was on hold for a minimum of 20 minutes before being able to speak to a person"
Cons: "Did not purchase any food and there was no entertainment offered"
Pros: "Being on time and the crew"
Cons: "The chair is not reclining"
Pros: "I did not like anything about it. The Departure flight was two hours late. They made us board then unboard the plane, change gates. Then the return flight was posponed from 9pm to 3am departure. They didn't have any refreshments in the gare area other than stale unhealthy pizza, no water. The seats on the plane were the most uncomfortable. I even purchased the extI did not like anything about it. The Departure flight was two hours late.

No recline, no room. Horrible flight"
Cons: "2 hour delay, plus a filthy plane with bloody toilet seat, completely bathroom fail."
Pros: "Nothing about this flight experience was good, with the exception of my overpriced hummus and crackers."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and archaic. Once we were all finally seated they came through 3 times with a paper trying to figure out who wasn't on board. As we taxied towards the runway a lady who felt dizzy coming on board threw up. The crew was obviously panicked and unorganized. We taxied back to our gate and waited for LA Fire for. to escort the ill lady off and clean the area. While waiting to taxi out the second time the flight attended, Tyeesha, was very rude to an elderly gent. He was seated in an exit row and she didn't think him capable. The lady on the aisle of my row volunteered to switch and Tyeesha' s response was a sharp, "Do you want to pay the higher price too?" When the lady next to me said she would gladly pay Tyeesha announced loudly that this discussion was between the two of them and everyone else needed to mind their own business. The lady offering to switch was really embarrassed, as was the elderly gent. Someone else was made to switch with him. They looked disgruntled too. In the air all the flight attendants were sharp and very direct. There were no please or thank you's used. Trash was collected silently and mostly with pointing. The armrest to my left had five flavors of chewed gum stuck to the side of it. My lap tray had grey and yellow sticky stuff on it and I chose to hold my food rather than let the two touch. The floors were untidy. The only reason I will ever fly Allegiant again is if I have no other options. It is 60 minutes closer to my house than SLC and I will be making the drive from now on."
Pros: "It was so fun to have a flight attendant that had a great sense of humor. She kept us in stitches throughout the flight."
Pros: "The crew was awesome! They were friendly and very focused on their passengers. The plane was clean and the flight, itself was great. Worth flying from Oregon to So. Cal., will do again. Loved the flight times, and because of them, we were able to have half a day on departure day (Thursday 3:30 pm) to drop off dogs, pack and run errands and some work and arriving back home (Tuesday 9:46 am) gave us all day to work and get ready for the week."
Cons: "Plane did not board or leave on time, spent a lot of time waiting both on and off plane. I also did not like being hit with the taxes and fees at Alamo, after booking through Allegiant. Those should have been included in the initial payment, because I could have rented same vehicle for $40 less through Alamo website,(final payment w/ T&F's) That was a waste of your customer's money."
Pros: "The Bacardi"
Cons: "How small the bottles are."
Pros: "The price and the fact that our flight left late but still arrived almost on time."
Cons: "The gate agent wouldn't switch our seats so we could sit beside each other. We've done this multiple times if we find ourselves not out beside each other and it's never been a problem before. He claimed he had to charge us to do this. We have never been charged before. We fly Allegiant often. The on-board flight crew were so not friendly at all. Typically Allegiant flight attendants aren't as happy as Southwest but they're at least cordial. This crew we're just unhappy, snippy, a little unprofessional (saying huh or what instead of excuse me. Pointing people to things instead of getting it for them or walking them to it) and at one point one stewardess was just rude to a passenger."
Cons: "Paying for my carry on bag."
Pros: "It's really annoying to stand in line, get to the attendant and then be told to step aside and download an app for your phone and check in (and especially check bags) that way. I don' know the security or privacy of that app, plus it is just tedious and annoying."
Cons: "Seats on Allegiant are terrible, and charging to print out a boarding pass is awful. Charging for water on a flight where you have no other options for water should actually be illegal. Shame on them for that."
Pros: "Staff was wonderful!!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour for "paperwork". Can't be helped by the crew, but an administrative errors are just as bad."
Cons: "Delayed. Unprofessional. Attendant laughing while reciting safety announcement."
Pros: "It's ridiculous have to pay to bring a bag on your airplane it's ridiculous that your staff at the Medford airport or unprofessional and lack common courtesy."
Cons: "Gate staff at Medford Oregon airport were rude and unaccommodating"
Pros: "The from take off to landing was smooth"
Cons: "Have no dislikes"
Pros: "Cost Flight Crew Deplane option from Front and rear"
Cons: "Only 2 flights per week Delayed flights All the "additional" charges $40 to check a bag $30 to bring a bag on board $12 for priority $12+ to book a seat in advance The method for Boarding that put every on in zones 2 and 3 in line before letting people who paid for priority get on board $22 for water"
Pros: "Spanish speaking lady employee at the counter very helpful."
I loved the way the flight attendants made sure everyone was safe. The pilots were generous and made sure I was safe and landed safely
Pros: "Crew on both our flights were very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "United really seems to have issues with their planes. Problems on Wednesday then again today. On Wednesday we boarded late and pushed people’s flights back because the cleaners didn’t show up at boarding time and at landing time we had to go back up when the prior flight was still on the runway."
Cons: "Lol, it's United. What do you expect?"
Pros: "The crew was kind and entertaining and super helpful"
Pros: "The crew was very kind and welcoming."
Cons: "The seats are much tighter than Southwest and Virgin. My husband and I are taller (6' and 5'9" respectively) and our knees kept bumping the seats in front of us."
Pros: "New plane with great overhead bins and comfortable seats and pretty empty!"
Pros: "Good crew, great landing, short flight"
Cons: "The seats are crampy"
Cons: "United's hidden fees"
Cons: "A little late getting started, otherwise OK."
Cons: "Our flight was changed 6 times and then cancelled- we had to sleep in the airport"
Pros: "Plane felt spacious and wifi entertainment was great using the United App."
Cons: "No entertainment for a 6 hour flight. Only served pretzels for food. Most of the crew was fine but one flight attendant was very rude, pushy, and condescending. Literally pushing me out of the way as I’m trying to board, yelling across the plane, rude comments over the speaker... honestly surprised such a large airline would tolerate this."
Cons: "Got stuck in the San Francisco airport and was promised a hotel room for the night when I departed Portland. When I arrived at SFO I was told sorry you have to just stay in the airport My next flight wasn’t until the next morning Shitty customer service"
Pros: "The agent in San Francisco was awesome and even went out of her way to bump me to a better seat. Leaving Portland was easy, crew were super organized!"
Cons: "No entertainment systems were working at all. Leaving San Francisco to kahului we had so many unruly young adults that were just out if control. They kept switching seats, spilling alcohol all over me and my stuff and the flight crew could not care less. We even had an older Asian flight attendant on flight 1749 that was just overwhelmed for the job. She would hand the person on the isle a handful of pretzels and say 'here, pass these out'. The other flight crew members made it worse by treating her poorly. You could tell they didn't like her and were agitated by her. Instead if being polite and educating, they were exasperated and impatient. Overall was super disappointed. I have flown United so many times back home to Maui and was always so please and excited to brag about how great United was. Not this time. Thanks for reading."
Cons: "Are the seats getting smaller??? And no leg room."
Pros: "It was an ok flight i guess but there was no good free in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Both flights were late, seriously late."
Pros: "The crew in air Canada is awesome! They were really great and friendly. I'm impressed with their impeccable service even if it was a short flight to Vancouver."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Cons: "Plane departed 2 hrs late,taxied 40 min in San Fransisco for lack of access to gate"
Pros: "the price of the flight was the best part of the deal"
Cons: "have to pay for movies, and no good selection of snacks on flight."
Cons: "Terrible uncaring old waitresses overweight, no room for luggage no room for even walk in the plane, kept asking to turn off devices when it is well known devices don't cause any problem. No free internet. Old tired planes, terrible third world airline."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The leg room & the service"
Cons: "Paying $25 to check a bag each way just to be able to do early check in on the app. I only had a carry on. Total scam. Shady AF. Also the United entertainment in the app does not work with Bluetooth headphones on an iPhone."
Cons: "Neither my fiancée nor I were particularly fond of the inflight sauna. I had try dry my sweat soaked shirt in the bathroom while waiting to make my connection. If the flight had been any longer I would have opened the door to let a breeze in."
Pros: "I boooked through Kayak based on recommendations fron Rick Steves. When I tried to check in the night before, I was told I wasn't on the flights I had booked. Turns out SAS had switched me to a later flight without any notice. It took hours on the night I was readying yo leave for a three-week trip to find out what had happened. At best, I would have found out the next day at the airport and waited an extra three hours. Not the big fun! At worst, who knows? Would someone have been able to figure it out in time? Huge run-around!"
Cons: "See above. Also no vegetarian meal offerings."
Cons: "We had to check our hand luggage and be charged EUR120.00 We should have been aware of this before we obtained the boarding pass..."
Pros: "The plane was new and clean"
Cons: "The new seats where not very comfortable one crew member was very nice the other two were curt when dealing with the passengers or moving the cart up and down the isle."
Pros: "The sunrise"
Cons: "I was on the wrong side of the plane!"
Pros: "Liked that we landed safely and I was treated like a human being not just a seat but the accommodation s were a little under what I expected"
Pros: "Everything went well, from boarding quickly to landing ahead of schedule."
Cons: "A mother with 2 fussy babies somehow sat next to me and they were extremely bothersome. Nothing was done to accommodate the crying babies, and we all know how annoying that is."
Cons: "Seats. Not comfortable at all for long flights."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time"
Cons: "Was assigned a middle seat. Tried to change it, but was not willing to pay $75 to do so."
Cons: "Being packed into the seats like sardines, not nearly enough leg room and even when reclined the chair sits too up right. When the seat in front of me leans back, I can't even lay my head down on the tray table because the space is too small for me to bend forward. So I'm forced to sit up right on two long flights, the first didn't even have in-flight entertainment. I can't imagine someone bigger than me (5'4" 150 lbs) being able to even reach the floor if something was dropped."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating, and helpful ...OVER BOOKED FLIGHT YET AGAIN,,,,,,,,, NOT CREWS FAULT!"
Cons: "OVER BOOKED FLIGHT WTF"
Pros: "The staff were normal and no complaints."
Cons: "I had to share my seat with the man next to me who continually had his arm and leg in my seat area. It's unfair and obnoxious to pay the same money as somebody else who then takes your already small space. I am not a large person (140lb, 5'7") and I could barely move my arms without bumping one of the people next to me. There's no reason that we should have such limited space."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with plenty legroom."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Entertainment selection was good"
Cons: "Seating comfort was *horrible*! Looks like they've made the seats more cramped, especially when the seats recline"
Cons: "First when seated there was no room for even my purse in the overhead storage. I had to hold everything in my lap. My ticket seats were separated when I was sure I booked the seats together. The blanket given to my seat was in package but was used and very vile smelling. The flight attendant was very rude, had an attitude when I asked for a drink after I wasn't offered one. When landing and I was asleep, flight attendant hit my head to wake me up to adjust my seat to the correct position rather then in a polite way. Also luggage was not with the rest of the planes luggage and on a differnt carousel. I travel often and are use to glitches, but when cleanliness and attitude come into the picture those are things that can be controlled. I wish to no longer travel with United again."
Pros: "No one smiled or looked like they were happy with a plane full of vacationers"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over 5 hours with very short notice. With the exception of a $10 food voucher for restaurants that were closed, United did nothing to try to make it right."
Pros: "The agent handling boarding was very helpful and friendly. The pilot did a great job getting us to SFO safely and smoothly."
Cons: "I was disapponted there was no back-of-the-seat screen for in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Nothing, please..."
Cons: "I had a connection flight to San Francisco and then from there to Honolulu and the flight from Portland to SF got delayed 5 times to up to 4 hours late so I would've missed my second flight from SF to HNL. They couldn't do anything about it so they put me on the next available flight, the next MORNING. So I had to go spend a night in a hotel which I had to pay for and wait for the next flight in the morning the next day. Next day the flight got delayed yet again this time little over 2 hours. So I would've missed the flight from San Francisco do Honolulu yet again. This time they managed to find a little later flight and put me on that but still had to wait at the airports for over 8 hours. Super mad about how United works... Had problems with my boss as well because I was supposed to work the next day but they rescheduled my flight for that day. Really not a pleasant experience..."
Pros: "The seating was very good. We "accidentally" were issued seats in bulkhead which gave us plenty of unexpected leg room. Thank you!"
Pros: "Everything from check in to breakfast to boarding was smooth and effortless at PDX. The restaurants are layed out in a smart configuration with plenty of options on either side of security. The staff are friendly and the travelers in the airport are generally personable and in a good mood, which is a stark contrast to the majority of the nation's airports."
Cons: "The boarding process at the United gate could have been more expeditated."
Pros: "Was a nice trip"
Cons: "All was good"
Cons: "The seats are so narrow in coach that the man with broad shoulders that sat next to me could not help being in my seat. I needed to be able to sleep, since it was an overnight flight. This was not possible."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great, the in cabin service was perfect, and the blanket provided was a sweet gift"
Cons: "Buying me a flight to my city since I was on time for the wedding I’m Missing"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "My fiancé and I have both had awful experiences with Frontier. Both of us have had so many issues with our flights being delayed with no real explanation, apology, or compensation for our inconvenience. This most recent time I was supposed to get to my destination by 8 am and didn’t end up getting in until after 6 pm. The time before I was delayed for 12 hours before they finally decided to cancel the flight. You REALLY cannot expect anything. It’s a cheap flight and absolutely nothing more. You also get charged for every tiny little thing- including your carry on. My fiancé and I have never completely written off an entire company before but we will truly never fly Frontier again. I’d rather pay double the price to fly with a different airline than save a couple dollars and fly with Frontier. Good riddance."
Cons: "Frontier customer service wouldn't print a boarding pass for me because of their 45-minute cutoff. I was there 40 minutes before the flight. That wasn't enough time for them. This was in the middle of the night (I arrived at 12:15 AM) when the airport was empty. There was no one in line at the TSA security checkpoint (I know: I looked). Forty minutes was more than enough time for me to get through security and walk to my gate. Very disappointed in Frontier."
Pros: "We were a little early, which was nice."
Cons: "The flight attendants spent most of the flight giggling at the front of the plane, and had to stop and restart several announcements after saying the wrong thing or having to take a break to stop laughing on the intercom. They also gave me a credit card pitch over the intercom, which was really annoying. The plane was pretty dirty, my tray was really gross with white stuff all over it, and the trash in the bathroom was overflowing, so I had to stuff my paper towel in there to get it to fit. I just wanted a cheap airline, but they split up your group unless you pay extra, and you have to pay for EVERYTHING, including any drinks or snacks. Bags were expensive. I ended up paying almost $700 on a flight that was supposed to be about $450. $21 each way per person to sit with eachother, like $50 for a single checked back each way, blah blah blah. Poor experience, and it was MORE expensive than the other flights with bags and seats included. The lines were also extremely long with only a single person at each stand in each airport."
Pros: "It left and arrived on time."
Cons: "To have to pay for carry on bags is ridiculous. Then to have to pay for seats that don’t even recline is unfortunate. Nothing about Frontier airline seems to be about customer service. Instead frontier is just out to make a buck by what seems to be “tricking the fliers”. Had I known I would have been paying an addition $200+ on our flights (from initial purchase price) when I checked in I would’ve just bought a more expensive flight with a more comfortable airline from the get go. I also didn’t receive an email to check in to the flight. I feel this is common practice so for it to not have happened was very disappointing."
Pros: "Cheap flight, quick boarding."
Cons: "Cramped accommodation, extra fees for luggage, no complimentary beverage service. I’d call it the Grey Hound of the air, except I recently took a Grey Hound and I was much more comfortable."
Cons: "It showed in my booking that I can carry a Carryon bag but had to oay ectra 50$ for the same as only a personal item was allowed. I found the service totally unsatisfactory. The website shouldn't make false claims if they cannot adhere to it. I will definitely avoid using this for my bookings again."
Pros: "The price was great and the crew was nice."
Cons: "No food, no entertainment, seats don't recline in an airbus A319 or A320 apparently."
Cons: "The new tables are good for what a drink? We have to pay for everything now, nothing is included in the flight price? The carry-on price is a bait and switch. Not too impressed overall."
Pros: "Boarding was ok, flight time was 2.5hrs, getting off the plane was usually slow - but as always, it's great to get off!"
Cons: "Nickle and dimed for any and everything. Seats are truly terrible - needed a chiropractor to fix the damages! Luggage policy is a joke. Used to be my favorite domestic - Frontier has really moved up to the top of the bottom of my list."
Pros: "Flights went fine."
Cons: "I will never choose to fly Frontier again. This was my first and last time. There is a fee for everything which makes the cost of flying with them significantly higher than quoted. I couldn't believe that you have to use a credit card to get a bottle of water or a small snack. If you don't check their website you can pay double to check in bags when you arrive. Not at all consumer friendly."
Pros: "We loved Sophie Ann Gross!"
Cons: "We didn't know how to get our seats back, but then, we didn''t ask either!"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Thought I would take a gamble and fly this Airline again. Flew them to Denver almost 6 years ago and was impressed. On May 3rd I flew them to Denver from Portland. Might have been the Worest fight ever taken. Flight was delayed almost 4hours when all said and done. The seats felt like something out of Disneyland ride, and my table was the smallest thing i have ever seen. Surprised I wasn't charaged a fee to have air on the plane. On positive I can say was the airline bought me dinner after being stuck for 4hours. Beware..."
Pros: "Not one thing"
Cons: "My number one issue was the staff. Totally unhelpful and unaware of guests needs. You should not advertise frontier economy tickets to people over 6 feet tall and/or wider than a 14 year old."
Cons: "The staff was not helpful or informative. Our flight was delayed and the staff didn't say anything apologize or try make the wait any less stressful. I understand this type of thing happens but it would have nice to at least be greeted with a smile. Unfortunately one bad crew can and will impact our future decisions"
Pros: "Honestly I don't like anything at frontier airlines I got reservations throwing you guys to frontier and I got the price &180 which included all tex and fee and when I went there they are charged me $40 for my bag !!! And not the only reason I didn't like it the seat uncomfortable and very old and if I get free ticket from them I will don't travel with them again.. thanks"
Cons: "Yes they have the lowest fares. But, you pay anyway. The offer nothing! Carry on is more expensive than checked. $35 and $30 respectively. They don't even give you a 1/3 can of soda like other airlines do. Fly ALASKA. Free carry on and I'm pretty sure (not positive, but it seemed like) there's much more leg room for a standard ticket."
Cons: "The carry on price isn't included when you buy your ticket so i was hit with 55 dollars in bag fees both way. Not to mention the fact that we were delayed on the runway because the crew just didn't show up to the terminal, but baggage was also late to the terminal by over an hour. Everyone was also promised a flight voucher and i never got one. Beyond upset with this flight."
Pros: "Nothing. No one was at counter to check us in an hour before boaeding."
Cons: "There are hidden costs (checked and carry on bags plus reserving a seat) which make frontier not as affordable as they appear. The seats are very uncomfortable and now they have no real tray tables anymore (except in the first 3 rows--which you can pay extra for). Additionally, the checked luggage has taken up to 30 mins to arrive on multiple occasions. Frontier has become a terrible airlines that cares more about their bottom line rather than sustaining the customers who are responsible for their bottom line."
Cons: "They didn't transfer my baggage to my connecting flight even though I had an hour and a half layover. I had a meeting early the next morning and got in too late to go shopping. I ended up having to run around Target at 8 AM to buy an outfit for the day."
Cons: "Frontier cancelled my flight about a week out. The customer service reps I dealt with were slow and alothough they offered me a $100 voucher, they input my email wrong so they couldn't send it to me. When I tried to rectify this again at the airport with another customer service rep, they tried to send me the voucher by email but I never got it. I was told to call customer service again, but at this point I've spent over $100 in my own time in trying to get the voucher. I wouldn't want to have to fly frontier again anyway."
Pros: "I've flown on a lot of airlines and Frontier is the first one where I had no trouble with the seat belts. I had no trouble fastening them due to their size, which was nice. The seats themselves were also very roomy and comfortable."
Pros: "Not much, the crew was ok for the most part."
Cons: "The AC broke while boarding, and airplane had 45 mins delay without AC in Phoenix (105 degree weather). No refreshments, seat don't recline and they charge you for a carry on! Bad experience over all."
Pros: "The view was nice."
Cons: "The seats were super uncomfortable, it felt like being trapped in a bucket seat. The flight was at 5:30am and a tiny cup of burnt coffee was $2, seriously? And then the teeny tiny little table was useless. It meant juggling anything I wanted to have out, and zero space to work. I got on the flight feeling okay, I got off in a bad mood and with no intention of flying Frontier again."
Cons: "It's ridiculous they charge for juice or soda when all other airlines its complimentary. The tray tables are the size of a 5x7 photo and the seats didn't recline. It was very uncomfortable and I don't plan on ever flying with Frontier again!! There was no entertainment so not sure why that question is even there."
Cons: "I fly a lot, as in 185,000 miles in the last 12 mos. I booked my flight last minute because I had one meeting and didn't want to stay the night in Portland. I typically fly United and am very happy with them. When I checked times, United's didn't work but Frontier's outbound and return times allowed me to avoid staying the night. So I took the chance as I figured the liklihood of an issue would be less than the last 4x's I had flown the airline in the last 18 mos. I was wrong. We had a mechanical issue and had to swap planes. The problem is that Frontier only has 8 gates at DIA and any change causes a logistical disaster. After 3 hrs I decided to cancel my flight as I wouldn't make my meeting in Portland. Frontier refunded the outbound leg but REFUSED to refund the return leg as they claimed that leg was unaffected. Their reasoning was that I still could have taken the trip but by the time I arrived in Portland I would have literally have had to fly right back to Denver. Ok, that makes sense. So after 1 hr of haggling on the phone I was only able to get their customer service to issue a credit for the cost of the second leg. I will NEVER fly them again, so the credit is useless to me. Fly anyone else or take the bus, you'll actually be treated decently and get to where you're going."
Pros: "Sprained my ankle on an epic hiking trip at Cape Disappointment along the Washington coast. I was slightly worried about my travels through the airport with crutches and my luggage. Frontier pushed me through the airport to make sure I made it to my flight. After a sight bit of conversation with the airline, I was assigned a stretch seat to make sure my injury didn't cause me more pain than necessary. Frontier is always a solid choice."
Cons: "Took a slight bit work/negotiations to get me into a seat that could accommodate my injury."
Pros: "The flight and service were acceptable."
Cons: "Frontier imposes mandatory extra charges to choose your seat and to check your bag OR to carry it on. The extra charges amounted to $192 for two passengers. If you have to fly Frontier, be aware that the prices listed on the travel websites do not reflect the real cost."
Cons: "Attitudes of Frontier employee in Portland , Frontier's flight delay for more than 2 hours caused to miss our connecting flight in Denver . We decided to cancel our flight with Frontier in Portland airports and book our flight to Indianapols with another carrier ."
Pros: "great price."
Cons: "When I arrived at the airport (pdx) I was informed immediately that I would be refunded. I knew before hand, via Google, that my flight would be delayed so I checked in at the counter to make sure I would be able to make my second flight from Denver to San Antonio, when I walked up to the counter, they asked for my name and then golf me I would need to be refunded. At this time, I tried to find out if they had another flight to San Antonio only to have the woman helping me ask "do you want me to refund the money or not? I'm about to press send." I'm sure that had the flight actually existed, I would be able to give a better review and I don't really want to mark down the crew for something, I imagine, was out of their control, but I can't give them any stars as my interaction with the staff was very limited to just the ticket counter. I will most likely NEVER fly with Frontier again based off of this experience."
Pros: "I enjoyed actually arriving at my destination."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed, they never hire enough staff, 1 hour delayed leaving and 2 hours coming back."
Pros: "When it was over"
Cons: "Even though the ticket is cheap, you have to pay outrageous prices for literally everything else. You have to pay to reserve a seat (any seat) otherwise they can separate your family on the plane. You have to pay for drinks (even water) no matter how long your flight. You don't get a free carry on bag and if you don't book the bag before you get to the airport it can cost you north of 45$ to check it. The accommodations themselves were not great. The chairs have no cushioning, don't recline, are so close together that I couldn't cross my legs, and the tray table is 4 inches wide and couldn't even hold my laptop. The flight attendants on both flights were extremely rude and ran into me with the drink cart twice. One of the flight attendants when asked if the AC would be turned on since the flight was pretty warm asked if the woman wasn't just having hot flashes. She was upset tingly abrasive. The flight was delayed on the Tarmac for over an hour because the team couldn't load the baggage on the flight. The flight team didn't give us any explanation of the delay beyond that, they didn't update is on the expected time delay and they never apologized for the delay. When we did finally get going the flight crew was very rude with asking people to sit back down. Worst of all was that after all of that they lost my luggage. Despite a 2 hour layover and 1 hour delay at the gate specifically because they weren't done loading the luggage Frontier couldn't manage to get my luggage from gate 42 to gate 44... The whole experience was awful. I would never fly with them again no matter how cheap the ticket."
Pros: "I liked the price and the assigned seats."
Cons: "I did not like the service, the seats / armrests, the overhead bins (way too high for a super short human like myself), and worst of all I hated the check in process. Where is my mobile boarding pass? I don't know. I will never know. Because once I checked in, I couldn't find it! Not great at all."
Pros: "It was safe"
Cons: "Initially scheduled for much earlier in the day and was moved later about a week ago the. Got delayed 2 hours in PDX today. them sitting after midnight on runway with no gate assigned"
Pros: "Nothing. Frontier is simply dismal. Don't make the mistake of ever flying with them."
Cons: "I had flown with Frontier previously, and so I didn't have initial qualms about booking a flight with them again. What I discovered is that in the past few years, Frontier was sold and the new owner has turned it into the worst airline on earth (literally ranked). Frontier's new game is to deceptively price their flights low so they are selected by people who book through 3rd party websites (we booked through Kayak). Around 35% of all flights are booked through 3rd party sites as of 2016. Then, once the flights are booked and are non-refundable, Frontier tells you during the check in process that you will have to pay through the nose for things that are free of charge on nearly every other airline in the world. For instance, we were told that unless we paid at least $16 per seat, my wife and I would be assigned random seats and would be unable to sit together. We were also told that it would cost us $40 for each CARRY-ON item we wanted to take on board with us. Yes, that is for carry-on items, not checked baggage, which they also charge you for. And the $40 mark is actually the internet discount, if you wait to check in at the airport, the price actually goes up to $60 per carry-on item. As would be expected, people don't like being deliberately deceived and fleeced like this, and they call customer service to complain. When I did this, the agent that I spoke to figured out quickly that I had a problem that would be moderately difficult to solve and simply hung up on me a minute or two into our conversation. This wasn't a fluke either, because when I called back, another agent did the same thing. I tried contacting them via twitter and got something similar. The agents simply stop responding to you when the realize the problem they might need to solve is more than moderately difficult. I would imagine that with the amount of complaints Frontier gets (highest in the industry by a wide margin), their reps are simply overworked and without hope. In fact, the only reason Frontier eventually responded to me was when I began reaching out to other disgruntled Frontier customers and suggesting that they could file complaints with the FAA. After 15 minutes of that, a somewhat senior customer service rep called me from Frontier's home office in Colorado and tried to explain to me why it was my fault for not reading the fine print and not assuming that an airline would deliberately try to deceive and then extort travelers. Ultimately, Frontier decided that they would refund our non-refundable tickets and we had a very pleasant experience flying on United. Even last minute, the tickets were only about $25 more apiece and we also were not charged $112 for the unheard of luxuries of sitting together and taking our carry-ons with us. So ultimately a huge savings. In my opinion, Kayak should remove Frontier and similar airlines (there are two-Spirit and Allegiant) from their search results as they are deliberately preying upon customers."
Pros: "The man sitting next to me."
Cons: "Over an hour late, no complimentary beverages or snacks, tiny tray, seat doesn't lean back."
Cons: "I will not fly Frontier ever again. Such a horrible experience. The cheap fares are not worth it. Not much leg room, bags are expensive to check and extra charges for carry ons, and charges for water. The staff did their best but I wonder if even staff hates that all the niceties of flying are stripped from Frontier. I'd rather walk from Portland to Minneapolis than fly on Frontier again."
Pros: "Safely from point A to B. Didn't have a POS terminal at the lavatory, which will likely be next."
Cons: "Loss leader fare, $35 per checked bag, $40 per carry on, but mostly having paid apparently only for the privilege of standing in the aisle, to have to pay extra (anywhere from $13 to $50 per seat assignment) to sit with my loved ones rather than just random seating. Seats so tight, that don't even lean back, felt like one of those chickens in the trucks on the freeway. Doing the math, this fare was actually more expensive than choosing an airline that actually serves human beings. As stated above, at least we didn't die, but at such levels of "economy" I was not confident that we would even survive the trip, thinking that the the pilots must be of the same quality. Please use a more honest business model, until then, we will not use you again."
Pros: "Newer seats, so I guess that could be counted as a plus for this trip."
Cons: "Ticket counter person in PDX was very rude. Our seats were 'upgraded' for a red eye flight, behind one screaming baby for 75% of the flight, and another next to us that constantly was kicking us. The male air flight attendant enjoyed to hear himself talk so much, that between him and the amplified screaming baby, sleep was not possible. I asked for water, but since that was the only free thing, they were out of it and the male flight attendant sound get me some of their was time before we landed....that was 25 minutes into a 3 and a half hour flight. In his defense, I did get my water just before the plane started its descent. And the last point, girlfriend's brand new suitcase was covered in him when we picked it from baggage claim. Instead of just refunding us the baggage fee, no, we now have a claim open for Up to $50 to get it cleaned. Spend the extra $100 for ease of mind and fly a real airline."
Cons: "i dont know why airlines dont board back to front it makes no sense."
Cons: "unexpected last minute fees , had to pay for my seat as well as a carry-on? I've never heard of that , so ridiculous. Had to spend an xtra $100 , not worth it."
Pros: "Not much. 2 hour delay."
Cons: "These new seats are disgusting!"
Pros: "The crew were nice enough"
Cons: "The entire process felt like a money trap. I got these tickets because it look like an affordable way to visit family, but every step of the journey had surprise fees, from selecting your seat, to checking luggage, and even having a carry-on bag. Literally every other airlines I've ever been on offers at least one complimentary drink and a bag of bad pretzels, but Frontier charges three dollars for a bag of bad pretzels and and two more dollars for a drink. When it turned out that I had to pay for the seat I just went and paid for one of the better ones and even those are massively uncomfortable-- there's slightly more legroom but even the "premium" seats have almost no padding, don't recline, and are uncomfortably narrow. Overall I won't be flying Frontier again."
Pros: "Super cheap flight ! Seats firm but comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing to read Seats don't recline No drinks unless you pay Delay first leg, luckily Frontier had a 4 hour layover on my trip When "checking in", it was confusing about paying for seats"
Pros: "The staff were very helpful and as accommodating as they could be, given we were stuck in the Denver airport for a day."
Cons: "I couldn't believe all of the extra fees they charged- If you have a bad past your purse, expect to pay 80 dollars extra, regardless of whether you check it or not. And expect to pay $40 extra if you want to sit together. I went in unaware of the extra fees- if you know that, you might not feel as cheated"
Pros: "Flight attendant tried to make the safety speech a little different and funny."
Cons: "Seats were pretty close together."
Cons: "I payed for a carry-on and a checked-in costing $85, but after I paid, the person at the counter said I didn't have to pay for the carry-on."
Pros: "Departed close to on time."
Cons: "First of all, at the ticket counter there was a LONG line because only one agent was working at the time. There should've been more staff considering it was the weekend after Christmas. Then, I did not like that they seemed to charge for everything - coffee, tea, soda and juice, most seats open required a fee during booking and even carry ons cost, which was not made clear up front when I purchased the ticket or I would NOT have booked with them. Knowing this would've caused me to rethink the ticket purchase in comparison to other airlines. I will not choose Frontier again on purpose! It's not worth it."
