Airline reviews

Cons: "I had a 4 hour layover in Minneapolis, there was another flight to Denver that I meant I could’ve been home three hours earlier had I done standby, but because I had a cheaper ticket I was not allowed that opportunity. That makes absolutely no sense to me seeing as my flight was packed. I’m sorry my flight saved me money"

Pros: "Not like"
Cons: "I have Sky Team Elite Plus Platinum but not fare anything!"

Pros: "Snack"
Cons: "I was delayed over 2 hours"

Pros: "Ease of check in and friendly people"
Cons: "Marta"

Pros: "Did not wait for luggage."
Cons: "Food was marginal. Equipment had low ceiling under carry on shelf. No entertainment."

Pros: "I love the in-flight movies!"
Cons: "This wasn't pertaining to the flight or airline; but the TSA line was ridiculously slow."

Pros: "Delta provided great entertainment options and it felt like endless food and drinks. The seats were also a bit more spacious than usual"

Cons: "They cancelled my ticket and did not inform me. Horrible exlefywith JustFly.com Beware of this organization"

Pros: "The exit row seat on this leg out of PHL to SLC did recline! No need for Delta Comfort+ unless you want to get off of the plane ... faster."
Cons: "For some reason, the pilot couldn't figure out how to adjust the cabin temperature for the first hour or so. This made the flight (and I was sitting in an exit row seat, right by the door which is usually cooler) uncomfortably hot and muggy. Food? No food. Thank goodness for Delta Lounge (even if it was the one in PHL). Just snacks make this a poor option for many. I don't know what is up, but the USB charger on the two monitors didn't work and neither did the outlet between the seats. And I have two different sets of cables "just in case" and they're the 3-in-1 so I can try to charge multiple devices (Apple, Android and Samsung) but nothing worked."

Pros: "Staff personalities"
Cons: "Waited extra 20 mins after door closed to-complete loading luggage"

Pros: "Staff was very courteous, the flight was smooth."
Cons: "There was no TV's on this flight."

Pros: "Good choice of video programs."
Cons: "The flight attendant took 25 minutes to appear, and had enough time for one round of service. First class, at least you should get two drinks. Fly basic economy, there just isn’t any reason to fly first class."

Cons: "Direct flight, on time arrival"

Pros: "There was one helpful lady"
Cons: "Flight was rerouted and rebooked twice. I’m stuck in Detroit overnight, and won’t be getting to Monterrey until tomorrow afternoon. Thanks, delta!"

Pros: "i fell asleep until we arrive to STL."

Pros: "Uneventful flight - boarding was great and there were no hassles."
Cons: "No food. No onboard entertainment."

Pros: "Flight attendants were really kind"
Cons: "We were an hour late to leave so I missed my connecting flight and am currently stuck in Minneapolis for nearly 8 hours now"

Pros: "Stewardesses were sympathetic but could do nothing."
Cons: "A few flurries out of Philadelphia and flight is delayed 2.5 hrs, we therefore miss our connection and all they wanted us to do was spend 2 days in airport until next flight. Finally reached a compassionate soul at customer service who got creative and routed us to BCN via ATL, Miami and Madrid."

Pros: "Got upgraded to 1st / Business class."
Cons: "Due to weather the power outage in ATL, the flight out of PHL was delayed by about 30 minutes. No movies. No meals."

Pros: "We were probably in the air for 30 mins; great short flight. Plane wasn’t filled so had plenty of space."

Pros: "Crew was very attentive and curtious. Boarding was a bit more chaotic than usual and the gate agent made no announcement about boarding procedure, which certainly contributed to the scrum resulting. I arrived from the Skyclub several minutes prior to boarding time and was unable to find a path through to the Priority Boarding Lane. As boarding began she had to redirect at least seventy-five percent of those in front of me as they were not in First Class. Had she made one or more clear announcements about boarding procedure I rather doubt such a misunderstanding would have occurred with so many."
Cons: "For the third Delta flight in a row (all First Class) the crew did not make any effort to keep economy class cuctomers form storing bags in the First Class overhead or using the only First Class laveratory during flight. This flight I was unable to utilize the laveratory even once due to this excessive and continuous useage. Trying to do my bit to reduce our carbon footprint, yet I am sorely tempted to return to charter service when disrespect of the airlines own basic service class rules gets piled on top of TSA hassles."

Pros: "As usual, Delta staff and crew did their best to make the flight quite enjoyable and smooth."

Pros: "one i got to gate i could relax"
Cons: "scary making connection from AA flight arriving int'l terminal"

Pros: "I appreciated the kindness of the staff at each of our stops. From beginning to end they were polite, helpful, and kind!"

Pros: "For a short-haul flight on a small CRJ, it was the most pleasing and comfortable flight. No delays and everyone was pleasant from ground staff to flight crew."

Cons: "Compared to such airlines like Turkish or etihad, service and comfort was lacking behind."

Cons: "On time"

Pros: "Great (seemed like unusually friendly and helpful) crew. Plenty of carry on baggage room."
Cons: "Seats didn't recline. Plane hot initially and couldn't be cooled down until airborne."

Pros: "Liked the plane and the leg room. Had to switch itenary due to weather and the gate agent did a great job."

Pros: "Did not eat or use entertainment."

Pros: "Everything was smooth. Short flight, but they offered us refills on drinks, which I've never experienced before. Polite staff, great flight. Thanks!"

Cons: "The original flight was canceled and a new one substituted - basically they wanted to fly a smaller aircraft (via a different regional carrier) so the flight number changed. PHL did not have the new flight info displayed at the Departures board or on the screen at the gate. Caused a little anxiety."

Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable tin can of an airplane. Barely tolerable for even an hour’s flight."

Pros: "Excellent flight. Nice new aircraft."

Cons: "Delta Flight #1661 I paid for 1st class. My first flight was late so I arrived at the gate after boarding began. When the gate attendant scanned my ticket another printed. When he handed me the ticket my seat had changed to seat 25E. I told the attendant that I had paid for first class. He asked me to step aside while he contacted his supervisor, Joe. Then I had to wait until ENTIRE flight had boarded which defeated part of the reason I paid for the upgrade. This was on top of the fact I was so thirsty because 1st flight didn't have drink service and because it was late I had to book it to the connection arriving sweaty, hot and needing to use the bathroom. I was told they had given my seat away to someone as a free upgrade. Joe offered me a $100 voucher to take other seat which was less than I paid for 1st class, plus the seat was a middle seat in the rear of the plane. When I told him as much, he tried to manipulate me by telling me that they would have to kick someone out of my seat. When I declined the downgrade, they made me stand by while they kicked someone out of my seat which was embarrassing and humiliating. Then, when they handed me a new boarding pass, it was not the seat I had paid for and selected, instead it was in the first row, which I’ve always hated because there is no under seat storage and I cannot keep my backpack with me. When I pay for first class, it is primarily so that I can board first and so that I have extra room to work (which I need access to my bag to do). While I was trying to take out the minimum of the things I needed from my bag and figure out how to manage without it, 3 times a flight attendant told me they had to take my bag (since I was the last person to board they tried to prevent me from using the bathroom and they were anxious to leave early). I tried to explain that Delta had prevented me from boarding earlier and that they gave away the seat I paid for which was NOT the first row."

Pros: "Service was great. Seating was OK. It was a brand new vehicle, so the (climate/air handling) was great."
Cons: "Boarding was not well organized."

Pros: "I liked that I didn't have to pay for a carry on and the blanket they gave me in flight to stay warm it was a great flight."
Cons: "Only dislike was that the flight was ending other than that no problems"

Pros: "Flight left on time despite the problems"
Cons: "We waited for one hour to be able to board. The system crashed so we were very lucky to arrive very early to the airport"

Pros: "This was a routine fight that was handled well but Delta and crew."

Pros: "Crew service was excellent"
Cons: "Poor leg space"

Pros: "On time, nice crew."

Pros: "Even though we had to tax over to the de-Icing pad before we could take off from Philadelphia, we were still in the air by our original departure time. Our flight was accompanied by tail winds that got us to Detroit early giving me plenty of time to make my connecting flight."

Pros: "Everything was perfect!"
Cons: "Not one negative!!"

Cons: "Delayed flight for 6 hrs. and acts like it is just business as usual, perhaps it is for Delta"

Cons: "The flight was very bumpy and didn't have the option to watch a movie."

Pros: "The cookies!!!"
Cons: "To cold on plane"

Pros: "The travel time was excellent, layover was quick, TSA was not bad at all.... The only problem I had was seat size... I'm 6'4 and both aisle seat was not I had was not comfortable... The layover flight from ATL to HOU wasn't assigned until I got to the desk before the flight... I guess I got to do a better job buying seats in the future"

Cons: "The spacing between the seats and in the aisles was almost nonexistent."

Pros: "Although not the crew or airline's fault at all, we had to sit and wait for the Vice President to leave the airport, which delayed the whole airport, really messed up my plans in St. Louis. Very friendly staff, and the captain kept us very well informed of the whole situation. Besides running out of choices to drink (they were down to water with no ice by the time they got to us) it was an ok flight."

Cons: "Delayed three hours with no communication or compensation. Poor customer service"

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 fly got delayed for more than 3 hours."

Pros: "It was easy to travel"

Pros: "That I was found an alternative flight and was boarded swiftly."
Cons: "That my flight was delayed four hours or more and then cancelled so I had to be transferred to a totally different flight in the early hours of the morning and that my luggage was delayed and travelled on a different flight to mine. The entire experience was very discouraging."

Cons: "Wifi was not working in the airplane unfortunately. You could connect to it but it was not working at all for anybody '"

Pros: "Biscotti, pilot, crew"
Cons: "Seating is so uncomfortable, unable to recline more than an inch or so, then everybody rushes around making you return to an upright position! What's the point?"

Pros: "Fairly regular updates from Captain, approx every 15-30 minutes. Flight attendants were ok, performed duties as expected. Announcements were difficult to hear over sound system. I don't know if Captain and the flight attendants were soft-spoken, or if the volume was not turned high enough, but I could hear less than have of what was said over the audio system."
Cons: "On the plane for approx six hours. Sat for two hours at the gate, then another hour on the tarmac. Would have been more bearable, but AA's seats are sooooooo close together, that there is nowhere near enough room to stretch legs when weather causes delays. AA's seats are the most uncomfortable (in regard to space and lumbar support) of the three major airlines."

Pros: "Crew was nice"

Cons: "Missed connection flight because they were late taking off, stuck in Munich all day. Only some of us got our second ticket to begin with even though we were told to check in to both through AA. They did take responsibility and pay for our lunch though so there's that."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Two hour plus delay in plane on tarmac then long flight with entertainment not working. Crew could care less."

Cons: "Operated by American Airlines and the service was poor The air attendants just threw the food down and the flight was not even full Had to pay for drinks- never have to do this on British Airways. Not equal service considering they are partners"

Pros: "Love these Non-stop to Austin even though they are always full. Thanks for this luxury of non having to transfer in Dallas."
Cons: "The down side is that these planes are smaller so we didn't have any entertainment and therefore no place to charge digital devices. There is however, wifi to purchase."

Pros: "Plenty empty seats, so I had enough room. Arrival earlier than scheduled, crew provided good service"
Cons: "Food (I had pasta)was lousy, the little TV screen was EXTREMELY unresponsive, Most of the time it would not work - unable to make selections. Seat 19C"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "No WiFi"

Cons: "Trtvr Rrrrrcffrrcr rr crfrr"

Pros: "Tight isles tight seats crabby attendants sucks the life out of you. You arrive at destination feeling dead."
Cons: "Movies were ok. The food was passable, but, no place to eat it. Small trays, no place to put anything. And no sooner you get organized and situated to eat and was movie their ready to collect trash. Can I eat without choking my food......I got 8 hours to kill! Luggage was there when we arrived.....guess that was good...."

Pros: "Great staff."
Cons: "The hour delay due to maintenance and fueling."

Pros: "The flight went very smoothly once we were finally on our way."
Cons: "Kiosks that worked were rare. Crowds trying to get boarding passes and finally getting their luggage checked were huge. Not enough staff to help confused passengers. Overall, the situation was something I have never experienced with any other airline."

Pros: "The plane and facilities were all very nice."
Cons: "Requested a raw vegetarian meal when prompted but message was not delivered to airline evidently. Flight attendant did not attempt to find alternate meal and implied we had not followed proper directions."

Cons: "Tight conditions, lousy movies& music, video system did not work well, 1 hour wait on runway"

Pros: "In general it was fine"
Cons: "The flight was not cheap and when I went to select my seat, it revealed that to not sit in the middle row would cost me an extra $60 each way. A bit much on the misc charges folks."

Pros: "Crew was excellent and live tv options"
Cons: "Temperature on flight was freezing cold!"

Cons: "No priority boarding for people with babies and toddlers"

Cons: "My flight was cancelled, then rebooked three times, when I finally was able to fly almost 24 hours later, the flight was delayed by over an hour. Not acceptable service at all. Not interested in ever flying with American again."

Cons: "I nearly missed my flight because I did not have a seat for a flight that I bought a ticket for at full price. Which, would lead one to believe that I would have a seat on said flight. However, coming to the gate an hour before boarding the personnel working gate the said he was having computer difficulties and could not get me a seat and it would be 10 min. I continued to return till boarding to find out I had no seat and I was on standby. Upon going to customer service they replied the airline oversold tickets and every airline does this as if to make this practice ok. Well being in sales myself and if I were to sell x amount of product to one customer ( or several) I better make sure I have it all there to deliver. People rely on you schedule wise. It nearly shot a meeting I had to make in the foot. Very disappointed with the airline and the way things were handled."

Pros: "It was a good and comfortable flight and a nice crew allthough it was Operators by AA"
Cons: "The food is not overwhelming."

Cons: "Horrible service and was never notified so I was not able to make either of these flights."

Cons: "Finally took off at 12:15 AM on a flight scheduled to depart at 7;30 PM the day before!"

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"

Pros: "Seat were larger and comfortable"
Cons: "AB 320-200 flight for +5 hours and no entertainment. Nothing on the flight. Could not pre-board on line, so instead of a zone 2 loading sequence we got zone 4. as a person who flies to Europe 4-5 times a year I do not enjoy getting on a plane in the Zone 4-5 sequencing."

Pros: "AA provided free headphones, free movies, music, and such."

Cons: "Attempted to make my connection which was in another terminal. Could not get onboard as they shut the doors. My rerouted flight was in a different terminal. Overall a very disappointing travel experience."

Pros: "Boarding was efficient, check in at PHL was quick, cabin attendants were good. Food was fine."
Cons: "Entertainment system seemed to overload and choke at times. Seats were ok but no coach seats are great overnight."

Cons: "1 1/2 hour delay waiting for another plane was ridiculous."

Cons: "last minute seat change to front of eco cabin (no foot room or small bag allowed)"

Pros: "There was enough space between the passengers and for my legs."
Cons: "To many layovers. The should arrange for more direct flights. Having less options but a reduce flight time will be best. That goes for all airlines."

Pros: "Great flight!"

Cons: "IT WAS AMERICAN NOT ALASKA!!!!! ALMOST MISSED MY FLIGHT!!!!!"

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."

Cons: "6-7 hour delay and another 90 minutes to get bags once landed as cargo door was stuck on the replacement plane. All planes on the PHL-AMS route are very old and lack amenities."

Pros: "Almost nothing"
Cons: "Worst plane I've ever flown overseas. Business class was a joke"

Cons: "The food.... But you already know that, don't you."

Pros: "Nothing, didn't take the flight"
Cons: "Multiple flights being cancelled and the staff was not helpful in finding alternate flight or transportation to complete my travels. I booked a car and drove the last portion of my trip to ensure I would make the funera I was flying out for. The staff could not confirm that any of the flights would not be cancelled. I spent more money on a car rental than the whole flight together. This was the worst experience I have ever had flying giving the flight crew at check in had little to no information and was in willing to assist with alternate means of transportation."

Pros: "No wifi, no individual screens in front of the seats. Crew did their best with what they had to work with. Our plane only took off 45 minutes late, the night before it was 3 hours late. The crew brought their own food on board."
Cons: "Time to retire the 757."

Pros: "The crew was pretty positive considering our circumstances."
Cons: "4 different issues with the original plane had us on the tarmac for 3 hours until they decided to change planes. We arrived to our destination 6 hours late. Had tour of vatican cancelled and non refundable. We also were never told that we would be flying American airlines, not finnair. Nowhere did I see that. We had to figure it out on our own. Should be MUCH clearer. Overall the WORST experience I've ever had flying."

Pros: "The flight minus the ridiculous amount of idle time on the Tarmac was very good. crew, food and entertainment were all well done."
Cons: "Over one hour sitting idle on the Tarmac in Philidelphia."

Pros: "The crew were professional"
Cons: "Lack of communication"

Cons: "Flight delayed 5 hours on runway for an apparent issued with one of the toilets."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive. First class food offerings were good for a domestic flight."
Cons: "Entertainment system on this A330 did not work for the entire flight."

Pros: "inexpensive fLight."
Cons: "paYing for coffee. paying for carry oNs."

Cons: "Kid vomit"

Pros: "Nice people around me! Crew members more concerned about selling drinks than offering anything!"
Cons: "Left late! No compensation! Little concern from crew except to SELL drinks! After arriving it took a really long time for our luggage with no explanation!! Did it have to do with a "door problem" that caused our delay! Need to share more and be more upfront!!!"

Pros: "Nothing."
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: "Weather is fine here, but a delay in a different city turned into 4 hours of waiting. The $10 voucher really made me feel better though! Total disorganization, it all stemmed from a delayed flight 5 days ago that snowballed into this. Crazy, only fly these guys if you have no other choice."

Pros: "Flight cancelled"

Pros: "Fast flight, nice crew."
Cons: "Extra for luggage, charging for water, 4 hour delay."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly ! The ticket agent working the checkin before security was very unfriendly didn't really even speak, everyone else made up for tha"

Pros: "We left early and arrived about 20 minutes early"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats"

Cons: "High charge on baggage. Not even water. I will not want to flight with you again. Sorry."

Pros: "Equipment was relatively new so no issues there. Orderly boarding and clean cabin. Flight crew did a superb job! Cabin crew were polite and accommodating enough. Gate agents were efficient and friendly, Can't comment on the quality/quantity of food or beverage as I opted not to give them any more money, Make sure to download the Frontier app on your device BEFORE boarding or you will have NO entertainment available! The entertainment is complimentary but there's a charge for internet."
Cons: "I had discovered the carry-on bag charges AFTER purchasing the ticket online which is a bit underhanded. My 'bargain' ticket was now the same price as every other airline plus the 'privilege' of food and beverage purchase whereas all the vanguard carriers still offer free carry-on, snacks and soft drinks. BTW unless you're drunk or completely exhausted, don't plan on getting much sleep: the seats were made with some of the thinnest padding I've experienced and you might get 3-4 inches of recline, IF you can locate the lever! IMPORTANT!! If you don't order THE WORKS pkg ($55) when you INITIALLY pay for your ticket, which includes refund waiver along with check-in, carry-on and seat choice, you're stuck with THE PERKS ($45) which has all the above EXCEPT the refund waiver. The refund fee is $99! You can do everything a la carte, but will cost more beyond 1 bag. BTW, do it all online or you'll pay more at the airport. All in all, absolutely fine for the price if you have a personal sized item (i.e. up to a small backpack) but a standard size carry-on or check-in will definitely put a wrinkle in your flight budget!"

Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly crew. Had no problem boarding, or getting my seat."
Cons: "I felt that the additional cost for carrying on my bag was high, by the time you pay that, the price of the ticket is almost equal to other airlines. If you change your seat there's an additional charge for that. Also, I do like the fact that the airline charges for non-alcoholic beverages. I'm not sure if they charged for water, but they charge $2.99 for a regular sized can of Coke. I think that leaves the public with the feeling that they're being ripped off. Not good."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Had to sit on the tarmac about 30 minutes on arrival in Indianapolis because another aircraft was at our gate. Why couldn't we have gone to a different gate? Arrival was at about 9pm and the airport wan't that busy. This was uncomfortable. Would have been a good time to hand out free snacks and beverages or drink coupons for a future flight."

Pros: "We were at our destination 40 minutes early!"
Cons: "paying for any beverage other than water"

Pros: "Easy and friendly"

Cons: "Clean the seats off!"

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "The nickel and diming. Good lord."

Pros: "price reasonable"
Cons: "this was the most uncomfortable seat I have ever sat in. the upholstery was so thin, no head support , no leg room, ridiculously small tray table paying for a soda??? and then having a choice to tip"

Cons: "Flight From San Antonio to Philadephia, Late for 1 hours Flight from Philadelphia to San Antonio boarding on time, however we have to wait for 1 hour to take off"

Pros: "I'd like to not be charged for a carry-on."
Cons: "I did not like the overselling, extra fees (i.e. carry-on charge)."

Cons: "Flight was 7 hours late because of staffing error and you have to buy all refreshments and basic courtesies."

Pros: "Nothing"
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: "The crew were all very friendly and the planes were clean."
Cons: "Having to pay for a carry on bag. This will probably be the thing that prevents me from flying with Frontier again."

Pros: "The economical price for travel"
Cons: "No beverage offered except at cost....I am used to having soda or juice on other flights. Delay time at departing airport and no explanation offered. We sat for at least 30 minutes and could see a Frontier plane in distance moving around outside. Customers did not know what was occurring in that situation."

Cons: "Having to pay all the extra fees for a checked bag and carry on luggage."

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"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Plane was 1.5 hours late. Seats are terrible. Charge for everything."

Pros: "Long Flight Delay Due to Weather, Strong Thunderstorms and Tornado warnings. Handled Delay well and boarded when appropriate."

Pros: "Crew much friendlier than the crew we had from St. Louis to Las Vegas. Unlike our flight from St. Louis to Las Vegas e were boarding properly with Zone 1 going first. (We paid extra for Zone 1)"
Cons: "Seating room left much to be desired. No room for my long legs"

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."

Pros: "Everything"

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: "I lost my flight because I try to check in 40 minutes before my flight. I understand the policy and it was my fault for not being super early, but when I asked the lady front the counter regarding my options she said: " If I were you I would check other airlines because we have limited flights", I had to ask her to show me the list of the flights to make a decision what the closest city to my original destination, but I had to asked her to show me the screen because she did not offer me any viable solution."

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: "Flight crew awesome!"
Cons: "Flight delayed, High charges for baggage."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic and super friendly. We actually departed the gate a little early and arrived at our destination 30 minutes early. Easy travel the Sunday after Thanksgiving felt like a miracle. You have to know that you pay for all of the extras (including coffee). It's still less expensive than flying other airlines most of the time."
Cons: "I bought a more expensive seat -- you pay for all the extras -- which meant I got an exit row (plenty of leg room), but my seat didn't recline. My flight wasn't that long but it was early in the day, so I intended to get a seat that reclined. I was disappointed for paying $25 for the seat and not even getting a reclining seat."

Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time."

Cons: "Delayed with no information given. No charger ports."

Cons: "The delay"

Pros: "My flight took off on time no luggage nor carry on but was surprise when found out frontier would charge carry on. Flight was cheap, crews were fine. We arrived half hour earlier then schedule which was great only to find out they couldn't open the plane's door so had to wait for 20 minutes before it opened. All and all I would rate 4 stars and will give another try."

Pros: "Simple service, no bells or whistles, just a great way to get where you're going."
Cons: "Michelle, one of the flight attendants, was incredibly rude and looked like she was not enjoying her job."

Pros: "We didn't crash or blow up."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats I've ever had on a flight, was surrounded by obnoxious people and screaming kids. And the smells. Oh god the smells. Worst flight I've ever been on. Aside from random unprofessionalism, the crew was ok."

Pros: "Good service and very informative"
Cons: "They explain to me with details about the carry on rules."

Pros: "Everything ran smooth. ..from start to finish great job but surprise bag fee was the only negative."
Cons: "Was shocked when I showed up for check in and had to pay for my carry on,so I checked it in.But I scaled back what I normally pack to make it a carry on size so as not to have to check a bag and pay anything because at no time during my booking process was I told about bag fees.kind of a shady practice!!!!"

Cons: "I feel that Frontier baited me with competitive fares when booking the ticket. When it was time to print my boarding pass, there were extra and excessive fees that other airlines don't charge and weren't disclosed at booking. Frontier charges a "seat fee" just for selecting a seat for the flight. They charge a "carry on" fee for a carry on bag. When added to the booking fare, the total cost exceeded what I would have paid on another airline. I feel tricked and deceived. I would not use Frontier again unless they were the only provider."

Cons: "more than 90 minutes of delay.."

Cons: "Confusion on what carry on baggage fly's free and what is charged."

Pros: "On time. People were polite."
Cons: "Very little leg room. No in flight snack or drink."
