Cons: "My son had to go to the bathroom shortly after we landed. Which he had to since the seatbelt sign was turned on when we were landing. He really couldn't hold it any longer and he is 4. I was sitting in the last row next to the bathroom and I attempted to get up to take him. The stewardess was very rude and told me to have a seat. I said he is about to pee in his pants and I sat down. Well sure enough he urinated on himself. He was so upset because he thought the rude stewardess would get bad at him. He also didn't understand why he couldn't go to the bathroom. So he urinated on the floor of the aircraft. So I left with my 4 year old boy covered in urine and in tears along with my 6 year old and my 2 year old who was having a tantrum at the same time. This made my mother's day complete. I felt as if the staff on this flight was very rude. No one even said sorry or cared about what had just happened. Even a happy mother's day greeting would have been nice. To add on our flight to Philadelphia we we're delayed for 3 hours. We have three children 6 and under and ended up arriving at about 3:15am. Your airline did absolutely nothing to make us more comfortable and am overall very dissappointed in JetBlue."

Pros: "The crew was definitely attentive and despite the choppy air they informed passengers of what was going on."

Cons: "My main issue was the lack of snacks that were applicable to flying in the morning. This was a 8AM flight so cheese snacks, cookies, or peanuts aren't really a breakfast food. Thankfully they had coffee for drinking."
Pros: "I liked the spacious seating of course"
Cons: "I was disappointed in the boarding, I traveled with my young daughter and infant son and when they announced those who require additional time, handicap assistance,etc I proceeded to board then all these other folks also jumped up skipping me and my children when it was not their turn. And the gate people allowed them to do so I had to be the one to say excuse me we were here 1st. On top of that when we landed back in NY I heard my stroller get tossed and discovered when I got home it was broke. So upset!!!"
Pros: "Nice crew and clean plane."
Cons: "3.5 hour delay"
Pros: "The flight wasn't cancelled"
Cons: "Hello Team, my husband and I are very unhappy with the outcome. We were on our way to our honeymoon as we were not let to board our flight in Philadelphia. When our tickets were bought, we had Jon instead of Jonathan. Without any sympathy whatsoever, we were passed around various reps and agents. No one cared to help us make a change and make it to our flight. As we left home (after 2 hours of being at the airport), we continued trying to make a correction over the phone. None of the phone representatives cared to help and kept on delaying and holding us on the phone. After 8 hours, we were told that it's going to cost over $2,500 to have try an evening flight. They ended up marking us as "no show" at the airport which wasn't true. We ended up going back online (on kayak) and purchased new tickets as this option was cheaper. This entire experience was awful. Please reach out if you need any other information."
Cons: "I think no social distances between passengers"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "To have us sit together"
Pros: "On time"

Pros: "The peanuts!"
Cons: "More space between seats"
Pros: "The flight from Vancouver to Mexico by Aeromexico was cancelled. I was assigned a different flight at 6am the next morning and we could not board in the last minute when we were at the door (it looks like the flight was overbooked)... Finally we are in Lima but our luggage is lost."
Cons: "Please let me know what can we do.. Is there any kind of compensation we are entitled to after going through all this..."
Cons: "Entertainment or WiFi being available"
Pros: "Nothing. Iberia Airlines employs theives."
Cons: "Two one way tickets were purchased to Cancun. The layover was 2 hours... but since the first carrier was late, it caused us to miss our connecting flight. Because the 2 tickets were from different carriers, the airline charged us $1600 to buy new tickets. I would never buy tickets this way again."
Cons: "El vuelo salió atrasado . Teníamos acientos en AM+. Incómodos El sistema de entretenimiento no funcionó. Pedimos que lo vean para arreglarlo. Nadie nos acercó con respuesta. Mal trato del personal a bordo"
Cons: "The plane is in terrible shape"

Pros: "There was great service at the desk when I needed to have my flight rescheduled. Friendly staff in flight as well."
Cons: "Having less than an hour to deplane, go through immigration, them security just isn't enough time between flights. I missed my plane as Guadalajara immigration took almost 2 hours at 5:45am. I then had to add another flight to my itinerary. Planes are somewhat old."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Lack of snacks, prefer chips"
Pros: "Choice of beverages was good, flight attendants impeccable."
Cons: "I was in Classe Premier. My seat was extremely hard to recline and my let rest wouldn’t extend. Very uncomfortable 2 and a half hours."

Again, what a horrible display of management skills!!"
Cons: "Flight was too hot, like they forgot to turn the AC on"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Surprise first class!"
Pros: "The amenities (entertainment, in-flight service) were limited."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, an attendant asked me if I was staying there. I indicated that I was not, that I had a connection. He clearly knew I was about to be led astray, but he did nothing to prevent it. Maybe there was nothing he COULD do, but if so, why bother to ask?"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "Aeromexico was unable to provide the boarding pass for our second flight on the itinerary (operated by Delta) when we checked in in Mexico City (our checked bags were tagged all the way to Minneapolis though). They informed us that we would need to go to the Delta ticket counter when we arrived in Cancun (with a short layover). This is an unacceptable level of service."
Pros: "I try to fly on the best airlines due to the service, however the service has gone down"
Cons: "The poor service provided to customers when a flight gets delayed, there was no explanation, no gate, we were walking around the airport without any information and the food voucher barely cover a meal."
Cons: "I had to document my luggage in every airport"
Cons: "Got to the airport 2 hours before my flight to fly domestically. Waited 1.5 hours in line. Everyone who worked there didn't give a damn about anyone's situation. This isn't the first time the experience was miserable. I recommend viva or volaris. This airline can't get it together."
Pros: "It was ok from mexico city to cancun"
Cons: "All the bad experience in mexico city only"
Pros: "Nice plane"

Cons: "Late boatding"

Pros: "Everything - the excellent service continued."
Cons: "That our flight was finished."
Pros: "In this day and age when Airlines are making you pay for every little thing; we were pleasantly surprised by the wonderful service and attention to the customer Aeromexico still gives to each customer."

Cons: "Almost lost the conection at MEX because I was waiting for my baggage, nobody said anything until 20 minutes the bags for the flight stop coming."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket, but the airline changed Equipment to a plane without a first class cabin.

Pros: "Excellent legroom, friendly service, on time"
Cons: "Delayed for no reason, very irresponsible msnagement"
Pros: "At least this one is on time."

Pros: "That it actually happen. Poor communications from British Airways and American Airlines."

Cons: "See above"
Pros: "My connecting flight from london arrived late and the crew made sure i made it onto the flight to stl even though I barely made it to the gate on time."
Cons: "The Crew Tried to take us from our seats so they could sleep in our seats. They tried to relocate us to the last row where the seats don't recline.they were very abusive and rude, we have it all on a body Cam and we'll lodge formal charges against American Airlines once we return to the States. Worse Trip EVER."
Cons: "Only half the crew worked"
Pros: "Didn’t expect a hot dinner or a breffy, so that was nice!"

Pros: "How nice the landing was. And how really sort it was"
Pros: "Flight attendants actually seemed to care about what they were doing. Seats were pretty comfy for once."
Cons: "Flight delayed with no explanation or apologies. Putting two and two together from the airport monitors it looks like they had to swap planes due to a scheduling or maintenance issue. Just another chapter in the neverending saga of delayed American airlines flights"
Pros: "Things went very smoothly."
Cons: "Long layover"
Pros: "We arrived safely and so did our luggage."
Cons: "PHL-Lisbon plane left 3 hours late due to CATERING problem. Seats were uncomfortable and food was awful. Lights and entertainment controls at my seat didn’t work."
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "The food was better than other international flights I’ve been on."
Cons: "A “broken plane?” Are you kidding me? This was the explanation for a 3 hour delay. A European connection should have either rigorous maintenance routine and/or records or there should be planes ready to fill a unexpected need."
Pros: "Boarding, comfortable seats, clean"
Cons: "Mediocre service, choice of food was down to one option (and I was on the 2nd row)"
Pros: "Crew was great, and flight was relatively on time."
Cons: "Itinerary I received was for British Airways, with whom I have always had excellent experiences. However, I discovered at check-in I would actually be traveling on American Airlines with a different flight no. I had already provided my BA flight numbers to family. No explanation was give to me prior to flight that this would be the case. Food was terrible- even for Coach class - I don't always expect a gourmet meal, but BA was consistently good in the past, so I had positive expectations. My personal entertainment system did not work properly so I could not use it."
Pros: "Much more room in seats than expected"
Pros: "Good seats with a bit more room than most planes. Very good staff onboard."
Pros: "When i got off the plane"
Cons: "Food was worse than prison food. It was a full flight and my entertainment screen did not work for half the flight from phl to man. Several times i was told its bein reset over the hours. Every other screen seemed to be working. I paid $1600 for this flight as it was booked a week beforhand as my mother got really sick and needed to be here. Honestly, never again. Over priced,horrible food and no workin tv. Expect more for the price. Will be my last time using them after years of doin so"
Cons: "Nothing. It was cancelled with little to none explanation"
Cons: "Outdated airplanes"
Cons: "I paid $20,for the in flight Internet and it didn't work. Neither did my monitor."
Pros: "When our flight was delayed in Denver the agent at the check in gate worked very hard to get our flight plans changed with as little impact as possible."
Cons: "We understand that delays happen but due to a delay on American Airlines we have lost our luggage and it doesn't seem likely it will be returned. We had five pieces of luggage lost during our flight from the U.S. to Spain. When we arrived in Madrid we were told that all five pieces had been located. When we went to pick them up the next day there were only four pieces at the airport. We were told the fifth suitcase would be delivered when it was located. It's ten days later and there's no sign of the luggage. It has taken multiple phone calls to get the information about the luggage correct. They assure me that they have everything correctly documented and then when I call back they haven't changed a thing. It has been a very frustrating process overall."
Cons: "I didn't have enough time and had to rush to get to me connecting flight. It scared me that I might not make it to the terminal and gate in time. thanks!!"
Pros: "There were empty seats close to me, so that was great. The food was pretty good and it was nice that the wine was free."
Cons: "The screen on the back of the seat in front of me did not work well at all so it was difficult to watch movies. (I had to press multiple times to change the screen from one display to another.)"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and provided sufficient food and drinks. Plane was late."
Cons: "The plane was late. Took a long time to turn over and the seats were not very comfortable. This was a flight operated by American Airlines"
Pros: "Food and crew were excellent. In flight entertainment vast."
Cons: "Seats were terribly uncomfortable. I was sandwiched between two men in an aisle seat of 4 and our arms were bumping into each other the whole time because the seats were smaller than the people. It was the most back and lower lumbar discomfort I've had."
Cons: "Plane needed to be updated. CRT TVs still? More space in seating for such a long duration flight. Head rests that don't rise more than a few centimeter. What's the point then?"
Pros: "I had never flown coach and decided to try it at a ridiculously low price. It was fine. I slept well and the service was above expectation for Coach"
Cons: "It was difficult to get to the rest room because it was a full flight"
Pros: "Another great flight. On our plane the entertainment was free and I was able to watch a lot of movies. We even landed early"
Cons: "I know it was a very long flight and my butt and legs were hiring by the time we landed. Also I'm lactose intolerant. And I wasn't able to eat any of the food. But it did look good. But overall a very good flight."
Pros: "Flight on time. Crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Usb charger would not charge tablet in flight. Tried multiple sources since there were 4 of us-none worked."
Pros: "Flight was crowded , they stored my bag without fee which was greatly appreciated"
Cons: "Plane was too small for international flight"
Cons: "Had to book a flight to Providence and then rent a car to drive to Boston since there were no other available flights to Boston today."
Pros: "our original flight was cancel due to snow, and we were placed at a hotel and food vouchers were given as well"
Cons: "no head set were passed out making video entertainment useless"
Cons: "The entertainment screen for seat did not work. A crew member indicated that he would try to fix it, but he never reappeared and nothing was done to alleviate the problem. They could not have cared less."
Pros: "Watched movies most of flight and the wine was free. The pilots got us there safely."
Cons: "They never called for groups, except 1st class. After they boarded it was a free for all. Wasn't allowed to check in online, had to wait until I got to airport.The seats just keep getting smaller and smaller. The microwaved tv dinner they served was horrible. Someone pooped on the bathroom floor."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, and I was glad that it was direct without layovers"
Cons: "The flight attendants were a little stand off-ish. I sat directly behind a screaming toddler on a red-eye. Not that the airline had any control over that, but it was terrible."
Pros: "My father passed away earlier that day and I needed a ticket quickly to fly home. At the airport I was a mess and the airline counter attendant was so amazing helping me ( I had never flown United and had no idea about their luggage policies ect..). She quickly pulled me aside.. helped me with checking in and did her best to fine me another seat thatvwas better than the one I had already chosen.Also, she gave me a hug and her condolences. Flying with an airline that has heart helped me so much during one of the most difficult times of my life. I will absolutely fly with them again."
Cons: "No complaints ... but I paid for a movie to take my mind off of my father's passing during the flight and there was a short in my monitor for our whole row. It kept cutting in and out and "searching for signal", I only was able to see 1/4 of the movie I paid for with all the interruptions in signal."
Pros: "a little bit more foot-room than my previous flight on a different airline."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Great aircraft!"
Pros: "United got me from point A to point B"
Cons: "Crew was rude, not just to me, but to other patrons. Flight was packed going and the man scanning boarding passes spoke to those of us asking simple questions as if we were stupid and defiant. Was he a prison guard in his previous job? On the way to Newark, I had an aisle seat. One of the stewardesses blazed by me with a cart ramming it into my shoulder without so much as a, "sorry." I'm not a big woman but maybe as I dozed off I leaned over a bit...There is no way she didn't feel her cart hit me. Rudeness, it seems is a part of the culture at United because the flight attendants coming back squeezed past the long line for the bathroom without saying, "excuse me." They did however, say, "I need to get by," and one of them brushed by the gentlemen sitting next to me and bumped his laptop and coffee. Overall it seems that the crew working these particular United flights have forgotten that we pay hard earned money to fly. Some of us are going on vacation, to see loved ones, and some are flying to deal with unpleasant circumstances. The staff may fly several times a day, but most passengers do not. There's a lot of prep and anxiety, that goes into taking a flight and a surly flight crew multiplies that anxiety. No one wants to fly with a crew that hates their job."
Pros: "I'm handicapped and the help getting from terminal to terminal. The people were very helpful."
Cons: "I have metal leg braces. I had to remove them to get in the seat. So the flight was uncomfortable. It would be nice if the plane could have handicapped seating.I know I wouldn't have minded paying a little more for comfortable seating."
Pros: "Pilots and some flight attendants were kind and friendly."
Cons: "On the return home, I was seated in the last row right next to the lavatory. I was bumped into at least 25 times by other passengers and flight attendants. I would suggest removing the aisle seat on both sides."
Cons: "My connection to YYZ was cancelled and I was not even rebooked to the next flight. I needed to buy a ticket on Air Canada in order to get there. Every time I fly United I find myself asking "why in the hell am I flying United?""
Cons: "Very rude crew."
Pros: "Majority of flight staff were rude and unhelpful. Gate changed 3 times, one gate being a literal half mile walk from the other. No in flight entertainment on board."
Cons: "Majority of flight staff were rude and unhelpful. Gate changed 3 times, one gate being a literal half mile walk from the other. No in flight entertainment on board. Have taken this route at least 6 other times with other airlines. Will never flight United again."
Cons: "There was no entertainment, no more food left when they got to my seat and the seats were really small"
Pros: "It was a light flight, so I could have my carry-on with me even though I was in group 5. The breakfast -- berry pecan French toast -- was surprisingly tasty and satisfying (if not very attractively presented)."
Cons: "Too bad I had to pay so much for the exit row seat. I'm tall and it's needed for standard comfort (as opposed to extra comfort). Oh well. Gotta squeeze those dollars out of the passengers every way they can."
Pros: "The boarding was very smooth."
Cons: "The passengers behind me had a baby on board that cried throughout the whole flight."
Pros: "The interior of the plane was updated and modern."
Cons: "We had a 6+ hour flight and nothing worked. No tv, no wifi, and no service."

Pros: "In Flight staff very nice"

Pros: "Friendly service, nice and comfortable."
Pros: "I love how amazing the crew & especially the pilot handled An unexpected emergency stop during the take off. A+++ I felt comfortable and not stressed with what was being done to work things out. A huge thanks to them !!!!!"

Pros: "Nothing no transparency"
Cons: "Everything no compensation no assistance upon arriving to Houston four hours late for connection... Had to rent a car to get to San Antonio"
Cons: "Cross country flight, tiniest snack ever, $8 for any entertainment. Choose JetBlue if you get the choice"

Pros: "It was awesome fckin amazing"
Pros: "Crew was nice and courteous and attentful"
Cons: "Flight left late and seats did not lean back"
Pros: "I made it to Cancun."
Cons: "When I got to the gate in Chicago I asked if my seat could be moved next to my friend. The attendant said she would only be able to move me closer and the issued another ticket to me. It ended up being a different persons name from mine. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to board because big her mistake."
Cons: "I paid for my luggage in advance and when I arrived at Philly airport it was not acknowledged"
Pros: "Returned flight from Phily was ok and on time"
Cons: "The first part of my flight was cancelled after the passengers were boarded. Then long lines to make changes. I had to booked with American Airlines to get to Phily"
Cons: "Every time I fly through San Franscisco, my United flight is cancelled, delayed or I get stranded! If you know a large number of your passengers are coming in on a flight from the east coast that was delayed for de-icing...wouldn't it be easier to just hold the flight, since it is the last flight of the night. United's customer service and care of passengers is horrible!"
Pros: "I liked that, even we departure a little late, the plane made it in time to Cancun. The plane was clean. They had all the variety of drinks."
Cons: "One of the flight attendant was not friendly at all. After we left there was plenty of room on the plane, and I told her that one of my leg was not good and if I could move to a better seat and she said no, IF I want to change the seat I have to pay. The entertainment system was not working at all."
Pros: "acceptable for the price"
Pros: "Clean, quiet, more leg room than American, comfortable cabin temperature. Great crew."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment, purchase-only snacks, no seat-back displays or USB ports (the aircraft did have a 110V power outlet between the seats for a charger). Expensive wifi available."
Pros: "Every flight was late or canceled. Employes don't care about their job or customers"
Pros: "This was the best flight."
Cons: "Very rude flight attendants and incompetent."
Pros: "I liked the ice with the Diet Coke I recieved thanks"
Cons: "My knees jammed into the seat in front of me! The least amount of legroom I've ever experienced ! My flight was already 730$ I guess you expected me to pay 97$ plus more $ to have a satisfactory seat assignment, sorry I thought I paid enough already"
Cons: "I was asked to change my flight. I did so out of the goodness of my heart. I then went to check into my new flight and I was told I wouldn't probably be put on it. Although it was eventually corrected, it was unnecessary frustration."
Cons: "My flight was many hours delayed due to bad weather in Denver. Then my flight from Denver to LAX was eventually cancelled so I took a direct flight from Phl to LAX on American. That flight was fine."
Pros: "Everyone one was nice, plane was clean, nicest in flight bathroom I have seen"
Cons: "We were delayed 2 hours and our gate was moved twice. Due to the plane was late arriving to SF. Then when it got there,there was still another plane at our gate. We were given free in flight direct tv as compensation. But I think a discount on our next flight perchance would be more appropriate."
Cons: "Flight there was ok. I'm 6ft 3 and have some weight to me but I've never had a problem being able to fit in a seat before. Not even close! The Boeing 737 we rode on the way back home was THE most uncomfortable 3 hours ever. I saw other customers "getting up to go to the bathroom" to stretch and get out of these seats. They were so small, so cramped and the leg room is the worst I've ever had! Hey United, instead of upgrading your older planes to have tv's in all the head rests (which costs money anyways) why don't you retrofit them to have liveable if not comfortable seats/legroom. Absolutely terrible. Considering never flying United again after that flight. I thought longer flights usually get bigger planes with more slightly more comfortable sitting accommodations. Caved and got one of the food boxes....bleh. Just bleh. Supposed to have smoked gouda spread. Tasted like those pretzel and cheese snacks that you give your kids for lunch."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the flight was not a good experience. We boarded and then after an hour, had to deplane. We were told ticket agents would be waiting to help. There were over 200 people and only one agent. A second came later. After an hour and a half, I was issued a new ticket with a layover in DC, that flight was delayed and would have made it impossible to make the connection. I waited in line again, and was helped by a different, much more efficient person. She booked me on American direct to Grand Rapids. That flight was great. It would have been alright if there were more agents or when you called United, they could have helped but did not. It was poorly handled. There was one agent that shined through and if you were lucky enough to get her, life was good."
Cons: "The counter agent at the gate was rude and acted like she didn't want to help me when I didn't have an assigned seat designated. May not ever fly United again because of poor customer service. The counter agent at the gate was rude and acted like she didn't want to help me when I didn't have an assigned seat designated. May not ever fly United again because of poor customer service. This is for the connection from Chicago to Austin."
Cons: "First of all, the flight was delayed by 45 minutes due to operational delays. This made our connection uncomfortably tight. The seats on this particular jet were really uncomfortable. I've flown over a dozen times this past year, and this was the most uncomfortable I've been. My United flight later this same day on a smaller ERJ or CRJ jet was more comfortable than this flight."
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "Worst airline ever"
Pros: "Nonstop flight."
Cons: "90 minute delay to repair toilets and the toilets were dirty."
Cons: "There is a charge to check bags and a charge for snacks and drinks. Whatever happened to complimentary incidentals?"
Pros: "Not much. It was on time so that was positive"
Cons: "Attitude of staff, comfort , communication regarding carry in"
Pros: "The hotel they sent me to"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, they should have told us sooner."
Pros: "Good flight crew. Early boarding if traveling with children. Couldn't beat the price."
Cons: "No free beverage service...not even water. Non-reclining chairs but surprisingly pretty comfortable"
Cons: "After paying for the flight. We had to pay to get seats guaranteed next to each other. And the charges for everything including a ridiculous amount for a can or soda or water and a snack."
Pros: "Everything else was great"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "Frontier is a bait and switch operation. They offer discount fares and when you get to ticketing you discover that they charge $40 for checked bags and $45 for carry on bags!!! I can understand the checked baggage fee only if it was made known prior to purchase but charging more for carry on bags. Also, the staff at the ticketing counter are rude and obviously selected and trained to make sure that they get every penny of their ruthless money. I have flown my first and only flight with Frontier and will never do so again."
Pros: "We got to destination 30 mins ahead of time."
Cons: "No leg room and the seats don't recline. No free snacks or drinks. Not even water."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and boarded the plane quickly."
Cons: "Basically everything else was awful. The seats were the worst I've ever sat in on an airplane. There was something poking me in the back the entire flight. On an international flight there should be some sort of food options beyond m&m and rice krispy treats.... I ordered one, and they had none left. There wasn't even a magazine for me to look at while on the plane. Really disappointing experience from stem to stern"
Cons: "fees were charged foe everything from carryon bags,checked bags, seat reservation. There was a fee for everything but water. no updates on flight status, no music, no TV no movies, seats did not recline, stuffed in the seats like sardines."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Delayed flight, paying for carry on bags, no complimentary beverage for a 4 hour flight"
Pros: "Long Flight Delay Due to Weather, Strong Thunderstorms and Tornado warnings. Handled Delay well and boarded when appropriate."
Cons: "This is single-handedly the worst flight I've ever been on in my entire life I will never ever ever ever ever ever fly with frontier ever again they are the worst people to deal with they are liars they are scum and they are rude do not ever fly with this company they are awful"
Cons: "It was very frustrating, specially because of the carry-on bag charge."
Pros: "Everything was great except the seats. ......don't recline and very hard to sleep"
Cons: "Seats. Also should say upfront that carry on are $30 each way. Still a good deal but misleading"
Cons: "Paying for a seat assignment on line before going to airport. Baggage charges too high. These extra costs added an additional 49% to my ticket. Unhappy with your airline"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 2 1/2 hours, and we had to deplane after I had already been on board for an hour waiting for take off. There were not nearly enough updates for me to be in the loop on what was going on. When we did learn, it was something to do with the engine? WHAT?! Thank god I even got there in one piece! And on top of that, no where during my booking was I even told that I had to pay to sit on this plane. I also didn't realize I had to pay for a carry-on bag but that I was told much sooner after my booking. When I went to check in for my flight the day before, I then learned to choose a seat I needed to pay as well. And if I didn't pay, what--standing room only on this plane? Pretty shyster-y. Next time, I'd rather pay the $95 upfront for an airline I've heard of, rather than be tricked and be on a poorly maintained plane."
Pros: "Plane didn't crash"
Cons: "Nickel and dime everything"
Pros: "Forewarned is forearmed. The last time I flew Frontier with my husband we swore never again after we got socked with an unexpected charge for carry-on baggage. Since we drove up for an emergency and I needed to fly home to accommodate my work schedule I had to bite my tongue and get the cheapest fare. Having only my purse as my traveling companion was a plus and I brought my own food, which was the envy of many on the plane. I would never use them to travel for a real vacation, but if you have to go in a pinch and can leave everything behind they are CHEAP enough to get the job done."
Cons: "The flight was booked to capacity, the idea of comfort with the seats is a fantasy as none of the seats move and are molded into the most uncomfortable position. If its for a short flight maybe you can brass it out otherwise do yourself a favor and pay the extra money for a better seat. Nothing is free, so bring your own snacks and drinks. Nuff said."
Pros: "As I had previously interacted with these type of cheap ticket but pay for everything else airlines I knew what to expect. They cram as many ppl into a no frills plane and that keeps overhead down. Now that I'm done venting, I must say... This trip was pleasant all the way around. Found a great deal on kayak, flight crew was pleasant and the pilot kept the passengers in the loop at all times. Since I know what to do with these types of airlines they work great for a quick trip without luggage."
Pros: "Excellent service. Nice flight. Will definitely be back"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, and we got in early. That being said, the seats are bare bones (tiny table, no reclining, armrest doesn't fold up flush with the seat), and my bag didn't make the flight. Drinks, snacks, and carry-on also all cost money, which isn't so fun."
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no communication. Bag was lost, took them three days to find it and get it back to me. Didn't offer to reimburse me for the $30 I spent to check the bag. Had to call to get updates on the status of the bag, which they never had any information. Not to mention them trying to push their credit card on you during the whole flight."
Pros: "Flight was terible, no response from crew. Not comfortable."
Pros: "I was unable to enjoy anything about this flight and airline."
Cons: "Poor communication. Poor service on flight. Poor flight attendee attitude. I did not enjoy any part of this flying experience. Not only was I not able to check in using a mobile pdf, but there was no mention of that being an issue prior to standing in the long security line before being turned away, and told Frontier was the only airline who was unable to scan a pdf. I nearly missed my flight. I paid $60+ each way for my bag and seat which i found to be ridiculously over priced! Seats were awful, and were only accommodated with water as a beverage option."
Pros: "I traveled from PHL to MBJ for $200 right in the middle of Christmas. Other airlines were charging $400 to $900 for a ticket. I didn't have that much money to waste so I was happy to see Frontier. I've never heard about Frontier but I said what the hell we're going to die one day anyway. On departure day everything went smoothly. I paid $160 for several bags. I didn't mind because I am used to travelling US Airways and American so bags weren't free with them either and Frontier's prices are a bit less for the first 2 checked bags. I was surprised about the carry on bag charge but everything still worked out to being less than what other airlines were charging. My flight left on time, arrived early and everything was good. I'm in Jamaica!"
Cons: "I don't see the need to charge to choose a seat but if that's how you keep your prices low I don't mind being assigned a seat. When your budget is low you have to compromise."
Pros: "Frontier airline is the most annoying airline ever. My flight was delayed for six hours. It was suppose to leave at 5:30am but didn't leave until 11am. Snacks and drinks were not given considering the fact that people left there houses as early as 2am to catch the flight."
Pros: "I like that the flight got me to my destination in a timely manner."
Cons: "My dislikes are as follows:flight attendents are not as friendly as they use to be; you can't get a refreshment or bag of peanuts w/o paying an outrageous price (it use to be free); the luggage cost just as much as a plane ticket; a carry on (once free) now cost moe than luggage; and the seats no longer recline. I will probably be seek another airline in the future."
Pros: "Waited hours n missed my gig I was flying out for because of this delay. very upset! A little compensation would be nice!!"
Cons: "The stewardesses were rude. They had terrible manners, and called the police on one passenger who was not being unruly, but who questioned them so they continually harassed him."
Pros: "Comfortable seat; polite crew"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "The flight cost was cheap, but was never informed that carrying on a bag I would have to pay for it. Wasn't aware that I would also be charged for selecting my seat. Beverages, including water, and food were also not included in the cost, and were relatively expensive. I used the app to check in 24 hours before my flight. I arrived at the airport and wanted to double check that I was checked in for my flight because I felt uneasy about it. The women at the check in said the mobile app does not count as a boarding pass and etc. So I needed to wait to be checked in. While getting in line to board the plane, a couple infront of me had their boarding passes on their phones and had no problem boarding with the app. I think there was a little miscommunication with the app and workers."
Pros: "I think this airline should be a little more open about what's going on. Upon booking, no mention of baggage fees. There was a delay that we knew nothing about as we sat there. The crew wasn't very welcoming. Probably wouldn't book Frontier again."
Pros: "Airport boarding and wait time"
Cons: "Extra charges for a soda and carry on bag charge. Also online registration was not helpful like other airlines and hard to understand. Also you should not have to pay extra for a seat that is rediculas only an upgrade should be charged not a standard seat. Will probably not fly with this airline again or recommend them because of the extra charges."
Pros: "Base price. Plane seemed newer and was clean."
Cons: "Staff was a bit rude. Tray table was comically small though with absolutely no complimentary food or drink I suppose it doesn't matter. Extremely thin padding on seats making them quite uncomfortable. While the base fee is low, once you factor in all of the fees for check bags, carry on bags, snacks or a drink while on-board, and paying to guarantee you have seats together, you might as well just fly Southwest because Frontier will likely be no cheaper or just barely."
Cons: "Comfort Entertqinment Crew professionalism Food and drinks"
Pros: "Good price for ticket. Plane boarded quickly and left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Frontier "nickle dimes" you to death. Charge for seat, charge for luggage, charge for something to drink. Add it all up and I'm not sure it is any cheaper."
Pros: "I usually don't fly frontier and was reminded why. The planes don't have seat rows listed on them and once you get to your seat, they're terribly uncomfortable. I guess the price is right to fly but after adding 40 dollars for a carry on item, what I paid doesn't look as good. silly to me that frontier can't afford to offer a free drink as well."
Pros: "The boarding process and the crew were amazing. The flight was smooth and arrived before schedule. Just be sure to account prices for seats and luggage and carry on baggage and food. The prices add up."
Pros: "Firendly crew"
Cons: "The seats are so small and close together that my 6'3" self acutally does not fit in them. There are no headrests. You can even lean forward on your tray table bc the seat in front is too close and the tray table in 6 inches long and 4 inches wide. A middle seat on a Frontier flight is the worst thing going in travel right now."
Pros: "it was a direct flight. It was the only carrier with a direct flight. The plane arrived with no difficulty."
Cons: "The Frontier website was misleading. On check in it asked to pick a seat assignment, which were charged additional money for. I tried to undo the seat assignment (after I went and read their policy that it was optional.) So the website is fixed, that it can not be changed. So I called Frontier and after a 45 minute hold time was told options (seat assignment) can not be changed and I had to pay for it. This added $24 each way for a total of $48 additional charge. Also only a small carry on allowed. so that added an additional charge of $30. The seats don't recline even a little bit. as it was an Airbus and not a Boeing plane. not as comfortable as Boeing. Less padding in seat also."
Pros: "The luggage policy must have been informed to passangers prior to the purchase of the ticket. I am unhappy about the fact that I could not carry my small luggage as I used to."
Pros: "always professional"
Cons: "I had to book a secondary flight, my bother DIED unexpectedly, and there was business... not compassion thrown at me. I completely understand business, but geez???????"
Cons: "The cabin crew can be a bit more friendly. There were several exit-row seats empty and I saw they asked somebody to leave one of those who swapped seats during the flight. If this is the company's policy, they can announce it in the beginning which would make things easier."
Pros: "the fare was very low. I paid more to check 2 bags than the fare. I get it they have to make money. I appreciate the fact they weren't harassing people at the gate over carry on bags. Seats were sturdy, but very narrow. Everything on time!"
Cons: "When you have a carry on bag you are made to feel like a smuggler trying to get across the border. Being nickel and dimed gets old."
Pros: "Everyone were really nice. The service was good."
Cons: "I didn't like the following fact. I was charged $35.00 for a carrying on bag. When the bag met all the requirements needed for a carry on. When other customers had larger bag and they were not charged. The bag was small enough to fit under the seat. I should be re-enburse the $35.00 I was charged. Thank you"
