After when I was taking to the end of the jetway she wouldn’t let me take it and said she had to do it” the whole situation was handling poorly and I watched her be rude to people prior to me.

Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats of any airline. Terrible in flight survice everything is extra, even a bottle of water Booo Frontier."
Pros: "No seat back lowering!"
Cons: "One hour late"
Cons: "I hope my concerns are viewed of your company's poor customer service and a policy you enforce without proper notification to your customers. In my arrival to check my bags for my flight is when I became aware of your 45 minute check in policy. If this is a policy you so strictly enforce, then it should also be just as strongly communicated to your customers. However the worst was the terrible customer service. The associates your company employ have no empathy for your customers and lack the proper respect for individuals that represent your company. I asked to speak with a manager who never showed up, after waiting 2 hours I was given an email address, which I did have to use to reach her. I lost the $179 I paid for a flight I missed, took time from work and didn't go on my trip."
Pros: "Flights on time"
Cons: "nothing. Good flights overall."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the thin profile gave a feeling of roominess."

Cons: "hORRIBLE SEATING; CHARGED ME $40 FOR FOLD UP BIKE."
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: "direct flight to destination"
Cons: "seat spacing too close; added cost for seat and carry on bag"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was very nice!"
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable!! They don't recline at all."

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.

Pros: "I like everything from arriving and departing nothing bad to say."
Pros: "the seats were very close together. the person next to me had body odor."
Cons: "Bag fee is expensive."
Cons: "I had a carry on that I always fit under my seat on other airlines and I put this carry on in the sizing container at check in only to be told it was a little bit too large because it didn't fall right into the container. I was then told I needed to pay $60 for the carry on bag, which was the cost of my whole round trip flight. The seats were also very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Smooth flight, courteous staff and on time."
Cons: "Be sure to get there definitely two hours prior due to their strict policy about boarding. It would be nice to offer something for their flight, snack, etc. At least water."

Pros: "It's just like any other airline as far as there service goes. Friendly, helpful, and professional."
Cons: "i did not like the seats, I did not pick my seat on purpose to save money, mine did not recline at all. The seats are thin, and you rest your head on what feels like aluminum. This is probably just me, I have back issues. I'm 6-1, 165, and found a 2 HR flight uncomfortable."
