Pros: "Nothing - the flight was cancelled several hours before departure time for unknown reasons as were other Frontier flights and the only recorde was to get a refund or get customer service rebooked Wednesday or Thursday"
Cons: "Customer service was poor - waited on the phone about 2 hours upon learning of cancellation, arrived at airport while still in the phone - lines at ticket counter were long and chaotic and clearly understaffed and able to offer no good solutions"

Pros: "Crew was fine."
Cons: "Everything else wasn't. PLEASE CLEAN THE AIRCRAFT INTERIOR."
Cons: "High charge on baggage. Not even water. I will not want to flight with you again. Sorry."
Cons: "I've traveled consistently between 4-6 times a year for the last 15 years and this was my first trip with Frontier. It was by far the worst travel experience of my life. One of the passengers was so drunk that she threw up all over the gate agent's podium, and this passenger was still allowed on the plane. When we boarded, we had to circumvent the vomit because it hadn't been cleaned up yet. There were multiple passengers on board who brought their own alcohol, were noticeably drunk and extremely loud. I understand that this is not your crew's fault, but there was a complete lack of understanding as to how to handle the situation. The pilot scorned passengers as a whole, and noted that if people didn't calm down, he would force a landing in North Carolina. The responsible passengers such as myself not only had to tolerate the debauchery, but also felt like we would be potentially be punished for other people's bad behavior. The flight crew seemed to have no idea how to handle this situation. I don't understand why is passenger are blatantly breaking federal regulations, the crew would not do anything about it. When I attempted to check in online, literally ever seat (including middle seats, back row) had an up-charge which is simply ridiculous. the seats were small and very uncomfortable. I will never fly Frontier again. I'd pay double for a flight with another company just to avoid them."
Cons: "$45 for carry on"
Pros: "My seating upfront amazing , baggage claim was easy"
Cons: "You have to pay $1.99 for water, or a snack."
Pros: "I paid for a two-star flight"
Cons: "I got a two-star flight"
Pros: "Fast and cheap"
Cons: "All was well"
Pros: "No problems whatsoever."
Cons: "Traffic getting to the airport."
Cons: "Not enough staff in the boarding area to ask about luggage etc"
Pros: "I like nothing"
Cons: "Delayed Boarding"
Pros: "Boarding was well organized"
Cons: "Stewards totally ignored me for food and beverage service"
Cons: "Frontier is cheap, but I guess this is because they cut corners by not paying people to attend to their check-in kiosk. As a result, fifty or more people were waiting at the check in with no idea whether or not it was the right place or whether someone would eventually come. There were no chairs benches or waiting area---and we were forced to watch while other people were welcomed by their airlines. Also, having to pay for a single carry on seems like overkill to me."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing."
Cons: "It was delayed 2 and a half hours. Bags cost a fortune. It was terribly uncomfortable."
Cons: "Delays are terrible"
Pros: "I had a baggage that met the online specifications- 14X8 but they still charged me $60 because it was not a "personal bag" -- they kept referring to it as a carryon."
Cons: "I did not like all of the hidden fees and lack of beverage service without having to pay for it."
Cons: "That we had to buy drinks and snacks"
Cons: "Paying for every bag. Not enough staff at check in creating long line. Waited for 30 min"
Pros: "I dont like frontier. suitcase is 10-50$ extra. Don't offers food even water"
Cons: "Charging to choose a seat. No distinction in check in between "personal item" and "carry on" so you're almost tricked into buying a carry on when it prompts "no, I don't plan to bring anything with me", must print boarding pass unless you use Frontier app but there were no self help Kiosks at the airport"
Cons: "Mandatory baggage charges are such a ripoff. I could have gone on delta and added miles, thought I was getting a deal. My ticket was $60 extra because of the mandatory carry on fees."
Pros: "Flight going was pretty good...no issues. Although return flight was canceled....customer service found later flight thru another airline."
Cons: "Flight coming back was continuously delayed than canceled."
Cons: "The cost for carry on, paying for water, the delay"
Pros: "Flight was on time arrived early. Price to check baggage was ridiculous."
Cons: "Lost my luggage going on fourth day still haven't found it. Price to check or carry on luggage was ridiculous."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding and security"
Cons: "It cost $20 extra for a crappy seat and more for a normal seat and $30 extra to take my single carry on. It would have been more honest to tell people these costs up front to allow prices to be properly compared."
Cons: "I left several messages with the customer service people. I had jewelry stolen from my checked baggage. No one ever got back to me about the theft. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org."
