All the EXTRA fees. Will likely fly other airlines moving forward. SUPER NARROW SEATS! No wifi.

There's no "complimentary" snacks on Frontier. Which is fine, their flights are cheap and comfortable and the snacks are affordable. I also don't really appreciate having to pay for a carry on. I knew about this so made sure my bag would be considered a personal item, but I just don't know how I feel about that as a backpack may not even fit under that seat. But again, the flight was cheap. So, I don't know.

Some questions aren't relevant to my flight. The pilot negotiated turbulence, and we arrived early.

Crew was lovely. Attentive but not annoying.

Not until the cabin doors closed did I realize the plane didn't have an individual entertainment system.

New airbus at least

Long boarding time, very long disembarking time. We were told we had to check our bags at the gate when we found there to be enough headroom above us for our bags after.

Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future.

Late, slow, de-icing in Detroit took nearly an hour!

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
