Cons: "They want $40 for a carry on backpack! And you have to pay more to choose a seat snd even more for one that reclines... the space under the seats is purposely blocked to only fit tiny bags so they can charge you. A low cost airline is not low cost I'd think they make you pay extra for every little thing. It's very misleading."

Pros: "Flight was fine. Seats were cramped but no worse than any other airline."
Cons: "When we landed, I did not get to baggage claim in a timely fashion. Frontier took our luggage and locked it up. We were told to go to the Frontier ticket counter to get our luggage. When we arrived all the frontier employees were gone for the day and no one at the airport could retrieve it. We had to wait several hours for someone to come and get our luggage. This was a terrible inconvenience. I have never experienced anything like this by any other airline. I have no idea why they did not just leave it off to the side (like every other airline does)."

Cons: "ONE AGENT at the Ticket counter, and ONE AGENT helping her, sauntering on the floor with 2 ladies' 'carry-ons'? THen the ladies are checking credit cards, something about moving clothes from one cas to another.... I was the Next one in line, WAITING AND WAITING, 20+ minutes, and NOW THE CHECK-IN LINE BEHIND ME IS FULL!!! And these Two AGENTS are still playing with these 2 ladies.

Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "It was all good :-)"
Pros: "The experience was horrible. There was nothing happening to like."
Cons: "The staff should not lie to the passengers. Passengers should be removed from the plane if the delay is going to be over 30 minutes that way they can take care of their personal needs and stretch. Water and a snack should be offered if the delay is over 30 minutes. Telling passengers you do not give anything for free and then refusing them water after turning off the air conditioner is really bad. Also, when reloading the same protocal of calling for children, disabled, and zones should be followed. I had to tell the manager to do this. He just told the whole crowd to line up which created a hostile mess."
