"Really accommodating staff, and on flight amenities. I would fly with Delta again."

"Recovery is taking its toll, The Delta employees are burdened with the covid restrictions costing then undue time to make sure they are complaint and its hard to do. Federal law mandating restrictions above local law is ridiculous. I did like the new boarding back to front, been wondering a long time when airlines would figure that out, but drop all the categories for pre-boadrings, only have one: Special needs, Military and 1st class, one call then back to front, half the plane was onboard before it got efficient."

Pros: "Very friendly thank you!"
Cons: "The wifi login experience could be improved. I purchased wifi as a guest when I had an account and had to spend extra time chatting with an agent to get it resolved. They were very helpful but having the option to login to my account at the start would be ideal!"

Pros: "I would like to have ore of a grace period to check baggage."

Pros: "Crew was polite and very helpful."
Cons: "It would have been great to reiterate to passengers to remain seated when deplaning, until the passenger in the row ahead were approximately 6 Ft away."

Pros: "Delayed"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and took good care of the passengers"

Cons: "No wifi"

Pros: "The crew went the extra mile to accomodate my bag due to not having a seat in front of me to stow it. Also, Delta Comfort was exceptional!"

Cons: "Smelled like poop the entire flight. Actual poop in the lavatory."

Cons: "We weren't alerted there was a chance of delays. Over two hours late."

Cons: "Better food offerings"

Pros: "Excellent crew and clean aircraft"

Pros: "There was an incredibly large passenger next to me and I was essentially afforded only a quarter of my seat. It is not really fair for anyone to have to sit next to someone taking up twice their seat."

Pros: "The crew was communicative and courteous."
Cons: "There was a flight delay in LAX due to a maintenance issue. The captain and crew informed us before we boarded the plane which was excellent. However, they could not figure out what was wrong with the planed and delayed the boarding for another 3 hours, putting our 1900 departure time to 2100."

Pros: "The crew WAS amazing!"
Cons: "Not a thing! It was perfect"

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "In one hour flight we could have some drinks and food. Snacks... can’t believe they don’t have any food/alcohol"

Cons: "Wifi didn't work"

Cons: "More comfortable than I expected for a 6 hour flight. 757 was quite spacious."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I came from a long trip from France, the seat I was assigned was not reclinable, close to the restroom. I was totally exhausted from the previous flight, not able to sleep at all and when I tried to stretch my legs by sitting sidewards on the aisle a crew member keep bothering me to keep my legs out"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Service by crew. I was flying economy but it was par to business class."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delta always delivers!"

Pros: "Very comfortable, no complaints."

Cons: "WiFi didn't work"

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Took off late. Other than that very comfortable and great experience"

Pros: "great crew"

Pros: "I really enjoyed the service on Delta. The entire process was better than what i've come to expect on airlines. My flight attendant was Kate, and she was awesome - super friendly, professional, thoughtful."

Pros: "Overall service was great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."

Pros: "If offering free WiFi to Amex platinum card holders it needs to work f"
Cons: "Fix it"

Pros: "Better than average entertainment system for domestic flights."
Cons: "Boarding done against logic: my seat was in the last 5 rows of the cabin and I was scheduled to board in the final group. When I got to my seat the first 30 rows were nearly fully, but the back of the plane was half empty. The whole time the gate agent was urging passengers to move faster through the aisle, but Delta should really rethink its boarding strategy. It shouldn't take 40 minutes to board a 757."

Pros: "Crew was very kind"
Cons: "Delta delayed us SEVEN times and I type this as we are rounding our 30th minute waiting to get off the plane at Logan."

Pros: "The flight was very good, no complaints, good service and we flew on schedule"
Cons: "We were split into two boarding groups, one for priority and one for everyone else. This was good but the priority line was just a bit too far away for the announcements to be heard. This added a little bit of confusion. This was at gate B36 at JFK Airport's Terminal 4."

Pros: "crew kept a great attitude throughout"
Cons: "Having to find my boarding pass to deplane"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Take a long time to taxi to the gate & getting off the plane."

Pros: "Clean plane, great breakfast options included with the flight. Crew was polished, helpful and genuinely nice! Gate agents at NYC were knowledgeable, organized, and quick. Boarding was a breeze. Impressive selection of movies for onboard entertainment choices."
Cons: "I thought the $11.00 fee for 30 continuous minutes of full Wi-Fi access was a bit pricey, esp when it kept getting disconnected and ended being about a collective 7-8 mins of access."

Pros: "Fast boarding and complimentary snacks."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large woman who came over the arm rest onto my seat."

Pros: "The free TV was nice."
Cons: "A tiny bag of pretzels is a stingy snack. Aeromexico gave us a croissant with two pieces of cheese,applesauce and a square of chocolate."

Pros: "Was tired and the FA helped me find a row that I could stretch out on and relax. After a long trip from Moscow, the FA's volunteering to help and accommodate a beleaguered traveler was most appreciated!"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable ... enough. Boarding process, once underway allowed me to get overhead bin and stash my other luggage in the seat below me. Flight wasn't overly booked (85-95%) so there appeared to be room for others to stretch out. Now about that crying kid..."
Cons: "Ugh. Weather delays. The flight was scheduled to board about 7P but it arrived late and they had to not only unload the self-loading cargo, but clean up afterwards. Would be nice to get a better estimate as to how long it would take to board so that I could hang out in the lounge. In addition, departure from JFK was delayed as well, either we missed the IFR window or got stuck behind some traffic and I fell asleep on the plane only to wake up what seemed an hour later just getting ready to hit V1. No upgrade."

Pros: "Being on time."

Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"

Pros: "I didn't get a chance to get the gentleman's name at the gate, but he was able to get me on the earlier flight (since I had NO luggage and only 1 carry on that fit under my seat) and didn't charge me the stupid fee for filling a seat that was empty when I was giving up a seat on a later flight that would accommodate those who missed this earlier flight. Nice to see kindness in an industry that seizes fees on every opportunity."

Pros: "All was quiet. It was an early flight. Nice offer of more snack choices than other airlines."
Cons: "Didn't understand why I had to wait until getting to the gate to have a seat assigned when I purchased tickets several months ago. Since I was in the last boarding group, Had to check in my bag since it was already full, had fragile stuff in there and hoping everything is ok. it is what it is. Not anyone's fault but disappointing to have to do when I didn't plan on checking in and going to pick up at the baggage claim. This is what i wanted to avoid in the first place. could have at least offered to let us pick them up as we deplaned and not baggage claim!"

Pros: "It got me to SFO earlyish"
Cons: "Was told to go away and wait for name to appear on screen for seat assignment. Was seated apart from travel companion. Got to sit next to folks with questionable hygiene, seat broken. Seatbelt broken. Stuck in back of plane window seat and was supposed to be “happy”. I was brilliantly ignored by crew. Seat back entertainment broken snd flight crew never answered the call button. Got to watch bag handlers throw and drop luggage like true gorillas. Delta, this time you truely are the worst. Wont book you again."

Pros: "We'd paid extra for main cabin so hot to choose seats and got in flight entertainment.. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "No free wifi."

Cons: "Zero communication to the passengers as to why we were delayed for almost an hour sitting on the plane"

Pros: "They arrived on schedule."
Cons: "Seated in the rear middle seat. I had no options to select a seat when I checked in or made my reservation that wasn't an extra charge. I'mover 6' tall and middle seats are painful, especially cross country. Airlines need to be a little more attentive to their customers' needs. If a passenger is taller than average, and the flight is more than 60 minutes, provide comfortable seating at no extra charge. If a customer has a short layover, which their system knows about since it is the sourve of the flight plans, put the customer toward the front of the aircraft since these flights are habitually late and customers end up having to sprint through airports to try to make connections."

Pros: "We took off and landed early. The crew was wonderful and the snacks were exactly what I needed."
Cons: "We landed early and were stuck waiting on the plane for an hour and fifteen minutes for a gate to open."

"Compared to other US airlines, American is the worst. The planes are tight. Seats are uncomfortable and there was no option to buy food on a 6 hour flight. Also the free wifi didn’t work."

Pros: "Bast trips!!"
Cons: "Evriting is good!!!"

Cons: "Enforcement of federal rules requiring children two and over too wear a mask. Flight attendant did not believe it was her responsibility to ask the age of the child sitting next to us, sneezing and coughing."

Pros: "The crew.was so rude, even from the check in process"
Cons: "Everything,"

Cons: "Sick joke of an airline they treat you like cattle even in first class if you can even call it that. It’s more like premium economy and the staff is not friendly they act like they are put out when you ask for anything."

Pros: "Crew and service was solid given the covid restrictions."

Pros: "Literally nothing"
Cons: "After sitting on the plane for over an hour we had to change planes. Notice that our aircraft isn’t working properly before you board it would be helpful so we aren’t 2 hours behind schedule having to sit on a hot airplane during covid"

Pros: "Flight attendant was very fun. It was her birthday and made the day fun for everyone."
Cons: "Seats are always too close together - left to right and front to back. A sad reality that only improves for the well-to-do."

Pros: "Again the flight did not happen since my flight from Munich to Dallas was cancelled without informing me why and so on."

Pros: "Crew was attentive and accommodating for seats due to virus."
Cons: "Delays could've been prevented or let passengers know, instead of being on the plane for 2 hours without moving."

Cons: "For the longer leg of my trip, there was no entertainment. No screens at all! No food besides some dry pretzels on a 5 hour flight and the crew was borderline surly. They were running into people with the drink cart, bumping any edge of arm or leg that was in the aisle, not smiling, not pleasant at all."

Pros: "Crew was very hospitable"
Cons: "Flight was a little late taking off, so punctuality could have been a little better"

Pros: "The crew serving the plane didn't look like they wanted to be there. Somewhat abrasive. The entertainment was poor and not very easy to access through your mobile, Iphone and Ipad. If you want to provide a better customer experience, equip all your planes with seats video screens. Passengers on a 4 to 5 hours flight don't want to have to figure out what do to watch a movie or TV. I don't fly American that often, but wanted to give it a try to see the difference between you and the other airlines. I have to say that on the return segment (ORD to SFO), I was not that impressed."
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "4 hour delay for no reason! I’m never flying with American Airlines again!"

Pros: "Nice crew and comfortable seats. It was a fairly smooth ride."

Pros: "The crew was good in first but ooor in baxk"
Cons: "More room for bags"

Cons: "On Time. Delayed advice 3 times."

Pros: "I hated the whole experience"
Cons: "I’ve never flown American Airlines and the flight was on time."

Cons: "Check in at originating and connecting flight very difficult. American Airlines could not find reservation on British Airways system. Was asked multiple times if I truly was booked on the flight. Four+ hour delay due to mechanical issues, delayed by union issues."

Pros: "The flight and cabin crews handled an equipment problem and consequent delay, and information about it, very well."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Customer service. Not losing my bag"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "It was too warm and a bit uncomfortable"

Cons: "if the crew/flight wasn’t filled with racist tendencies that forced a black man and his partner to take a new flight because his “tone” wasn’t to their liking when he responded to accidentally being the wrong seat, costing us 90 minutes at least of delays because they deplaned us all when all."

Pros: "Think I said this before. Up graded to 1st class because the flight to Miami was do horrible."

Pros: "Much better flight in 1st class than in cattle car. Not happy about the extra cost just so not to be misrtsble."

Pros: "Not happy having to spend the extra money to fly 1st class because the flight from Phoenix was so terrible."

Pros: "The staff was very nice and passed around several times offering drinks and food"
Cons: "The food selections is literally three things. I ordered the cheese tray and the grapes were rotten. I mean, it is already pricey and on top of that bad quality"

Pros: "The flight crew was quite lovely."
Cons: "People all over the coach section were complaining about not being able to sit together. Families with babies, couples, even ours (though the kids are old enough for me not to be truly worried as some were). Somehow reservations seems to have messed up an entire flight. We gave up trying to fix it for fear they would make it worse. Then the woman at the gate tried to get folks to volunteer to give up their seats on an overbooked flight. But she was screaming at us. Unbelievably unpleasant to be yelled at over and over again and told we could lose our seats. The poor weather likely caused flights to be rerouted into PHL so our flight out to SFO ended up 1/3 empty. FABULOUS. But the gate experience was horrible and the legroom, had it been a full flight, was miserable. I'm in search of an airline with a humane approach."

Pros: "Entertainment selection"
Cons: "Minimal leg room Not allowed to bring bag aboard. Told bins were full even though there was AMPLE Space in the overhead in my row. Onboard crew unhelpful. Baggage intended for carry on got “temporarily” delayed 45 min additional at baggage claim. wait was 1 1/2 hours."

Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food was not great. There is not a lot of space in these planes, and it was a long flight. There is no power supply."

Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Felt very uncomfortable on that seat me and my girlfriend. We got delayed before taking off And our first flight from SF to Miami we got delayed an hour after landing before exiting the plane!"

Pros: "Flight Attendants were excellent. Especially good was the senior FA who was seen training the junior ones who were on their maiden flight. The breakfast omelet with turkey sausage was about as good as they get."
Cons: "Nearly two hour delay due to fog in SFO. Recommend AA reroute into OAK where the fog is not so bad and the airport has a way better arrival on time rate than SFO. The drive into San Francisco is about the same time from OAK as it is from SFO."

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"

Cons: "Because they canceled my flight and i had to buy another ticket for 380$ and after that I realized my chair was available and i took a picture. It was really bad and i never choose again American Airlines."

Pros: "The only positive thing to be said for the flight was that the seat was not uncomfortable."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work during entire flight; crew (stewards) lied to passengers on the ground that it would work after takeoff, only admitting after we were in the air that they had been told by the technicians it would not work at all. Crew did not respond to call lights when pressed (in First Class), nor did they know how to operate the power system."

Pros: "Comfortable and wide seats in coach - as wide as or wider than my usual airline. Flight attendants were friendly and helpful. I had bad experiences with American in the past, but this one was surprisingly pleasant."
Cons: "No free entertainment or meals."

Cons: "Seats were quite uncomfortable, there was no entertainment options, there was no way to charge any electronic devices because the plane was so old, which meant I almost wasn't able to catch a ride home after the flight. For a cross-country flight, I would expect a better experience."

Pros: "Everything went very smoothly and the entertainment was quite good. New movies, international films, and games kept me happy from boarding to landing."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about really. I thought that the flight attendants did a great job."

Pros: "Flight was on time."

Cons: "For a flight five hours or more I was disappointed that there was no complimentary food. It otherwise it was fine"

Pros: "The plane was comfortable and flight was smooth."
Cons: "The shuttle to the plane wasn't bad, but would prefer not to have that element included."

Cons: "Again American Airlines was LATE. It was boarding time and no agent was at the gate. 10 minutes past boarding time the screen shows that the flight is delayed 25 minutes... but wait, there is still no plane at the gate! After 45 minutes the plane arrived, again had to be "cleaned" and prepared for flight back to SF. Customers were told the flight was delayed because Air Traffic Control issues in SF, but there was no plane in sight... Again I felt we were being lied to. The plane was filthy with garbage everywhere still. I will never fly American Airlines by choice!"

Cons: "People still using mobiles as we were taking off. Crew seemed not too bothered."

Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice. Pilot kept us updated on our delayed departure."
Cons: "The departure was delayed due to maintainence issues. Every time that occurs, there are long delays to complete the paperwork. No problem with wanting a well maintained plane, but there should be some quicker way to complete the documentation."

Pros: "The entertainment screens and the new seats in business class were very nice"

Pros: "It's nice to see a large corporation getting back to the basics which helped their company grow CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!"
Cons: "The airport waiting times through TSA check points. It's over kill and an obvious reason just to extend employment. Reminds me of the old saying " the criminals are running the asylum @"

Cons: "My flight was delayed for 3 hours and they where rude about my flight being delayed"

Pros: "I liked that the seats had chargers (even though I didn't need them) and that they offered entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was over 30 minutes late which ruined my SF plans. The crew was mot welcoming walking on or off the flight. They were also very rude when serving, one even gave me a super nasty look and mumbled something under her breathe because she ran into me. Just a terrible experience. They also didn't tell me baggage prices when I was there just swiped my card."

Pros: "Crew were all very friendly. Boarding was pretty quick."
Cons: "One passenger constantly got up from his seat to stand next to mine, using my arm rest to lean on, to talk to his girlfriend. They didn't speak english so didn't seem to understand or just ignored my attempts to kick him off. Advertised free movies but you had to pay for most of them."

Pros: "We were able to board first. The round trip flight was overall amazing. American Airlines is awesome when it comes to active duty flying. When try let him board early and took his luggage they also did the same for me as his wife and it was a great experience to know they care for both of us."
Cons: "I didn't like the lady we sat next to! But you can't help that. So you all did amazing!"

"Never happened. Plane left while we where waiting for a gate. Poor planing at its best. And all you can do is a 10 dollars for a meal for a person who's flight was delayed twice and was left at the airport because of your negligence not weather."

"Frontier seems to be trying to be a good airline. Gate communication and baggage checkin are weak communication points."

"The boarding staff were rude, and the in flight staff consistantly peddled their credit card"

"Changed gates and didn’t make announcement for those already in airport on layover. I missed the flight and have to purchase another flight and stay over in the city missing work"

Pros: "Because I was unwilling to pay for seat selection, I was prepared to be separated from my husband and stuck in a middle seat. To my pleasant surprise, the agents put us in the same row by ourselves."
Cons: "Better directional signage in both the SFO and Las Vegas airports (arrivals). Las Vegas is a huge airport, requiring a tram to get to the passenger pick-up, even with directions it was confusing and not obvious. In SFO, half the plane walked halfway down the concourse in the wrong direction because of lack of signage and it looks like the right way to go. Drop Kiwi as a third-party for domestic flights, their customer service is clueless, handling charges absurd and flight requirements unnecessary."

Cons: "Crew could be better They should keep one seat distance between two customers They could serve basic packed drinks but there was nothing It’s not that they were not serving but they started charging"

Pros: "Clean, on time, reasonable"
Cons: "do not sell the middle seats"

Pros: "Flight wasn’t bad for what I paid for. One MUST definitely do his/her homework before flying to be prepared for all of the extra costs, etc... I was glad I did and was prepared with my own food, neck pillow, etc. I didn’t expect much in terms of creature comforts and therefore wasn’t disappointed. There isn’t much space in the cabin, so I was glad to have my 6-year old in between us 2 adults. Crew was pleasant r and professional. Ticket agent was helpful if a bit “assertive”. I probably won’t try to book them for long flights, but for short flights their fine"
Cons: "The tiny space and small seats!"

Pros: "The stewardess' were professional and friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, the captain stuck in traffic, and they boarded the plane in the Florida heat without having the AC on. A real health hazard! At first they said that it had to be the captain who could turn it on. He wasn't even in the airport yet! It wasn't until I complained about concern for my child's safety that they called for someone to plug it in. The flight price seems like a bargain, but the individual charges for bags and seat assignments feel tricky and in the end doesn't make this a deal. The comfort on the plane is horrible. If I would have known the seats were unpadded, and the tray tables worthless I would never have booked this flight. My husband couldn't work on his computer as the tray table is miniscule. I have never flown this airline and will never again. There were multiple places in our row that had gum stuck on the floor. Gross. Never again Frontier."

Cons: "They didn't know how to handle the unpleasant situation of having delay due to "the plane is having some problems and they will try to fix it asap before departure"."

Pros: "price"
Cons: "Flight delayed 7 hours. Called the airline after receiving a flight delayed text, and before heading to the airport, and was told to get there by 5pm because the flight may leave on time. Departed at 2am on a Sunday night instead of 7pm. Was told 3 different stories for the delay. Departing airport weather, although blue skies and all other planes taking off on time; plane arriving from an airport that had grounded all flights when Frontier was departing to said airport as they reported this story, mechanical failure, etc. Took a picture of the departures board where all other airlines were departing on time to all locations. Asked if food vouchers would be provided and told, "no". Then vouchers were provided 2 MINUTES before all restaurants in the airport closed. The vouchers had a print time of 4 hours earlier. They would not rebook on another airline and would only rebook on Frontier 3 days later. Zero customer service. Employees were rude and complaining that they had to work late while their customers would be arriving home at 5am after booking a flight that would have allowed time to sleep before work. This is on top of no carry-ons, entertainment, or even water on the cramped, packed flight."

Pros: "Ticket prices were initially really low."
Cons: "Everything else about my experience with frontier. They nickle and some you at every corner. When you go to pick a seat that'll cost you $5-$25 per seat. Then you're looking at $35 per checked bag $40 PER CARRYON. The only time I have ever paid for a carryon bag. No complimentary water/beverages/snacks. The seats are hard plastic with very little padding and no reclining. The tray table is smaller than your average tablet. On our departing flight we sat on the tarmac for well over an hour with no explanation. Horrible customer service all around. I will never be flying frontier again."

Cons: "First I bought a ticket from Spirit Airlines SFO to MCO for 309$, then I saw charges from frontier Airline, frontier airlines bought a ticket for me too for 287$, when I was just watching checking the price. Then I compared the tickets, both the time, but from Frontier Airlines was cheaper then I stayed with frontier and cancel the other reservation from Spirit Airlines the next day I see frontier airlines also cancelled that reservation and I had to rebook another ticket for 496$, the price went up, then I had to pay 187$ extra, IT WAS A FRAUD JOB FROM FRONTIER AIRLINES, I can prove everything above with the receipts and the dates on it, the worse experience I had"

Pros: "First off I've never flied on Frontier before. I've heard some pretty negative things about Frontier but booked a flight anyways because 1) it was 1/2 the cost of any other airline for the dates I wanted 2) it was a non stop from SFO to MCO so how bad could it be. It was absolutely horrible and enough to convince me to never book a flight on Frontier again. Here's some things that you should know if you've never flown Frontier before. They charge $25 for carry on bags and $30 for a checked bag as long as you purchase ahead of time. If you show up at the airport and pay there then the cost for a carry on is $50 and a checked bag is $60. You are allowed to bring a personal bag for free as long as it's not bigger than 18x14x8 and that's what I did. You can't choose a seat on Frontier unless you're willing to pay an additional $12-$42 so you essentially get whatever they give you. The plane was an A319 but the most stripped down version that an airline could probably purchase. The seats don't recline and it's basically a plastic seat lined with fabric. Extremely uncomfortable to say the least. The employees for Frontier across the board are very unprofessional and rude, at first I just thought it was an isolated incident but the more contact and interaction I had with Frontier's employees the quicker I realized that it's company wide the level of unprofessionalism exhibited. If you want a snack or anything to drink including water you better be ready to pay a premium, so it was a rough 5 hour flight. On the way out of SFO my plane was delayed over 3 hours. When I asked about the delay they said it was weather. The funny part was that only Frontier flights were delayed. Flying back my plane was supposed to depart at 6:55pm but we actually didn't depart until 11:15pm. Lesson learned and I know that for me I'll pay the extra money to fly with a carrier that I have experience with that better caters to my traveling needs."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 5 hours, and we were offered a $100 voucher that would be emailed to us immediately after the flight takes off. I approached the desk to verify with an employee pre-boarding to ensure I will receive this voucher. She was annoyed with me from the start repeatedly saying it will be emailed after takeoff, which was NOT my question. My question was to verify that the email on file was correct. She had a very hard time getting this to her head. However, it has been over a week and I have yet to receive this voucher. Unless, I receive this voucher I will never recommend this airline."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "They charge for: a checked bag, a CARRY-ON bag, and your seat choice. There is no on-flight entertainment. The seats don't recline. The check-in counter has massive lines of people and is clearly understaffed. The gate is frequently empty and abandoned with zero people to answer your questions. Flights are late without good reason. Gate agents are understaffed, uninformed, and frazzled. Gate changes were poorly communicated and disorganized. Frontier management and leadership: you should be embarrassed."

Pros: "Don't get me wrong, I knew I was buying a budget flight and I appreciate that it was available. However, when you ask me give a review of the food (there was none) beverage ($2.99 for a bottle of water) and service (I held my trash for most of the flight waiting for the crew to come get it) your not going to get 5 stars. The price was great. I have never sat in such a small seat and the folding tray was not big enough to balance my water bottle. But the Steelers won so that was good."

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "My first flight was canceled without notice, it was a 1:30AM flight. Had to sleep in the check in area of the airport until we could get our next overpriced tickets that will not be taken care of by their 3 options they give you. This shouldn't have been placed as the cheapest tickets available with out big red warnings that it is only cheap if you have no bags. $40 more would have given me free check in bags and a far better in flight experience on another airline. Spread the word to never fly Frontier."

Pros: "Friendly crew, on time departure, great landing by flight crew."
Cons: "My flight was on time departing and arrived at my destination a little early, which the crew was eager to point out. However, my entire flight waited over an hour at the baggage claim! the baggage claim was crammed with multiple flights and the Frontier personnel kept changing what baggage claim my bag was coming from (I literally was directed from baggage claim 1 to baggage claim 3 then back to baggage claim 1). This is unacceptable. Don't boast that you got us to our destination ahead of schedule and then make everyone wait over an hour just to get our bags."

Pros: "What did I like? A safe and smooth flight from San Fran to Chicago and back."
Cons: "The seats are cramped and don't recline. I'm an average weight and height and normally don't have such a hard time resting despite long flights, but both flights were uncomfortable. In addition, the flight from Chicago to San Francisco was HOT and no drinks are offered without payment - everything on Frontier is extra $$$ - a bit of a turn off. I'm an avid Southwest customer and I think I will be going back to them even if the flight 'seems' cheaper when searching Kayak. I appeciate you asking about my experience. I love Kayak, but won't be flying Frontier again. I'd rather spend up to $200 more for Southwest to get: comfy seats, free bags, cabin temperature comfort, on time flights, drinks and snacks. It's worth it."

Cons: "They charge for everything, even carry-on! If you don't tell them you have a carry-on, they will charge an additional 20$ on top of the $40 for the regular charge. They charged me even to make a check-in online and assign a seat. Only water is served in the plane and if you want soda you gotta pay for it. Ridiculous! The counter crew are rude and seemed overworked. The airplane seats DO NOT lean back and they have no foam, only a hard piece of leather covering the metal seats. They put their price very low on the travel websites and get you that way. Later on the fine prints (which no one ever reads, btw), they state that there are extra charges for everything else. I am surprised that they didn't charge me to breath inside the plane! Im Chocked!"

Cons: "The price was good, before you realized the price was a lie and they scam you by charging $45 to carry on or $40 to check a bag! That meant the overhead space was unused and they were just charging more just to be inconvenient. The plane was stripped barebones. The crew were rude, did not smile, and gave me attitude for hitting my elbow with the drink cart. They charge for even getting a soft drink. Nothing about the experience said "we're serving you." It's worse flying a more expensive airline because the rediculous bag fees make it just as expensive and even things that should be free like pleasant staff were lacking."

Pros: "$49 price for ticket from Pittsburgh to Las Vegas. (WARNING: uncomfortable seat only, doesn't include any baggage)."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. They are smaller than before and the airline claims they are "pre-reclined." The boarding process is poorly organized (should fill from back to front). The staff is not friendly. Food costs, they claim you can't consume your own alcohol, and they begrudgingly give you water if you press them. When the plan landed at the exact time the pilot predicted 4.5 hours earlier, they told us that we were "early" and kept everyone waiting with seatbelts fastened. In fact the crew frequently abused the seatbelts fastened light during calm air. Don't fly Frontier unless it is severely cheaper; the experience is terrible."

Pros: "Both flights were early."
Cons: "45 minute wait for baggage in DEN. No personnel available to check passengers in in PIT. We waited for 30 minutes for them to show up. Different prices for baggage depending on whether you book it when you book the ticket or if you do it at the airport. Charging for a seat reservation is nonsense. Of course so free food, not even peanuts! I am so tired of being nickeled and died by airlines that I now will actually refuse to make certain trips unless I can drive. No other industry in this country treats its customers as shabbily as the airline industry."

Pros: "nothing! the flight attendants were nice!"
Cons: "only three rows of seats recline! the most uncomfortable flight ever! I thought (ALL) airlines would have all their seats except exit row seats recline? especially on a cross country flight! my girlfriend said she never had to pay for a soda on an aircraft! I have no problem paying for checked bags, but for a carry-on, I have never heard of that until I flew Frontier this weekend. JUST NOT HAPPY AT ALL WITH FRONTIER AIRLINES! my girlfriend will be filling out either this survey or your facebook page? we thought we were the only folks complaining, but felt a little better when people seated around us had the same complaints! I have never complained about an airline before this."

Pros: "I liked that the plane flew safely."
Cons: "Both my flights were delayed which caused a lot of inconvenience given that this was a short trip and time was of the essence. The second time I kindly approached the counter to ask if a drink ticket or free wifi could be extended as a courtesy. The woman at the counter was snarky to me and made under her breath comments as I walked away. I understand now that frontier does not have wifi but she was very rude. I think this was the tipping point for me. I was trying to be ok with the unexpected charge for a carry on. I think letting passengers know in advance would serve in Frontier's best interest since this is an incredibly unusual charge and one I have never heard of from any other airline. The people at the counter who explained this to me as I checked in were also rude and snarky. I felt that Frontier provided absolutely nothing past a the actual flight. The seats dont recline, not even a centimeter, the tray tables are too small to place a drink and a sandwich on it and it seemed every Frontier flight in the airport was delayed. The icing on the cake is how nasty the customer service people were. I've experienced rudeness from other airlines before, but at least we landed on time and I didnt suffer back pain for 2 days afterwards from the incredibly cheap lawn chair style seats. Please improve your service. I know your whole bit is you wont provide any amenities so you can pass down the savings to the customer but it's not really a cheaper flight if when you get there you have to pay an extra $60-80 for a carry on?! Grow your company, provide outstanding service and pay your employees enough that they dont behave like they're at a dive bar. On the upside I do believe the pilot was sober."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I didnt like the fact that I couldn't talk to someone here in the United states for frontier. I didn't like that when I called customer service I was instructed to do the wrong thing and fill out the wrong form. And most of all I really hated that my flight was cancelled and my money put into a "shell credit" and when I went to re book the fight it cost 3 times the amount than I originally paid. Overall this has been a horrible experience and I will be tell everyone I know and even people I don't know via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and snap chat about my experience . Overall I feel your service and your service provider failed miserably."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "You risk losing the flight unless you pay additional fees to select a seat in advance. If you do risk getting your seat assigned at the gate (no fee), you MUST be first to the gate to get your seat assignment because they far oversell the flight. Interestingly, they seem to intentionally punish people who avoid the seat assignment fees in this way. My evidence for this is when my husband and I were first in line at the gate for a seat assignment, the agent said that there were no seats together and gave us seats far apart. However, the girl behind us in line ended up sitting next to me, meaning that the agent purposefully seated my husband and I apart. In addition to all this, you must pay for SODA. And there is no entertainment, as the seats are thin plastic and squished as close together as possible. Consequently, the seats have laughably small tray tables. In summary, I will never fly Frontier again."

Cons: "1. They charge for every little thing. Each checked bag is $25.00 and each carry on is $35.00. They also charge you for a seat. So once you purchase your ticket, you then have to pay an additional fee to seat down. 2. The staff is unprofessional. Not only does everyone look sloppy, but the staff is comprised of individuals that don't care at all about customers and have been poorly trained. The quality is very low. 3. I was hit and then verbally abused by a gentlemen on the plane, they laughed and did nothing!!!!! 4. They only allow 15 bags on their plane! After 15, they will move your bags to a different plane without telling you. What kind of nonsense is that?!"

Pros: "Everything was awful"
Cons: "If I could give this rating a 0 stars, I would. I never plan on flying with this airline again. The attendant was extremely rude at the beginning when I tried to check in and I almost had to miss my flight because she was trying to charge me for a bag that was a carry on (charge me triple the amount) and that fit perfectly on the overhead, I even took a picture. She was extremely rude and unprofessional and put a hold in my account trying to get me to miss my flight. Luckily, the attendant at the boarding gate was already having a bad day due to the incompetence of his fellow coworkers and just let me go on. It was horrible. 0 stars, worst airline and flight ever"

Cons: "I will never fly this airline again! The tix appear significantly cheaper on kayak, so we drove 2 hours out of our way to ATL in the early morning hours thinking it was saving $$$. Only to find at check in that it cost more to bring a small carry on than to pay for it to be checked! It was a west coast flight and it didn't even include a beverage in flight!!! No snack either. Thumbs down. It was certainly NOT worth the inconvenience of driving out of the way, and we didn't save any $ after all. The staff was not that friendly, at it took 30 mins for the frontier baggage carousel to even start up to get the heck out of there. Never again. If it seems too good a deal, it is!"

Pros: "The flight staff was really nice and provided excellent customer service :-) I felt sorry for them that they had to work for such an incompetent airline and field so many customer complaints."
Cons: "In response to Frontier's survey question, "How could we serve you better?" Be more transparent about your hidden costs, and be sure there is a gate available when you land. There were delays coming and going. In Denver we sat on the runway for at least 20 minutes before we found a gate and could get off the plane. In SF we sat on the runway for over an hour (!) with the engines running. My throat was sore from breathing carbon monoxide fumes. The friend who came to pick me up in SF was kept two hours past her bed time because that was the totally amount of delay. To add insult to injury, you had the nerve to CHARGE for coffee, and worse I paid $160 in baggage fees round trip, making you MORE expensive than competitors, not less like it appears when you buy the ticket. I did try to look up your baggage policies on line and by phone (which referred me to the website and gave no option to speak to a person), and it was not easy. The only information I found before I lost my patience was that we would be charged more if our bags exceeded certain limits. The original charge was cryptic and hard, if not impossible, to find. We were told both coming and going about staffing shortages and employees calling in sick. If you treat your employees like you treat your customers, no wonder they don't want to come to work! Not only will I NOT recommend Frontier to my friends, but I will go out of my way to DISCOURAGE them from flying your airline."

Pros: "I booked Frontier for the low price. But after going to a farther away airport and paying for bags and seats and drinks and sitting in an uncomfortable seat, I am not so sure it was a great deal. I am happy that I did pay less than other airlines even with the cost of checking a bag (less cost than carrying one one) and for the seat. Because it is more costly to carry on a bag, hardly anyone did leaving lots of room in the overhead compartments and speeding up boarding and deplaning considerably. Snacks and drinks were reasonably priced and lower cost than in the airport. Only snacks like chips and beef jerky are available so if you want food, bring your own. Flight attendants were friendly. My bag arrived on the same flight that I did and it was in good condition. We were reasonably close to on time."
Cons: "Seats are short front to back and don't recline. There was barely enough room between seats to force by backpack down to the floor and almost no room on the floor to hold it leaving me with no where to put my feet except on top of it. My legs are long and about 1/2 of my leg was not supported by the seat. This was manageable for a short flight but I would certainly not book a long flight with these seats. We spent considerable time on the tarmac waiting at both ends. I am not clear on the delay at the beginning of each flight. The delay at the end was related to Frontier only having 1 gate at each airport so we had to wait until it was free. Yes, we landed 20 minutes ahead of time, but we got into the gate 20 minutes late - meaning sitting on the tarmac for 40 minutes. Bags were slow to come up. Probably because everyone checked them so there were many."

Cons: "Boarding - people who sit up front go first meaning that those that have seats in the back have to go in past people who are still in the aisles arranging themselves. I could not get a drink of water without paying. Is it really that esxpensive to give a coke and some peanuts??? Paying for seat selection means that some people get in the seats other peoiple want (like window seats) who don't want them. I tryly believe that Frontier is the nickel and diming airline. And I don't believe you had to wait for a gate and 11:30 at night."

Pros: "Easy check-in."
Cons: "Hidden charges for carry-on luggage was an unpleasant last minute surprise and added an unwarranted $55 to the cost of the flight. Had I known the flight really wasn't the advertised price, I would have picked another carrier because their price would have included everything. Frontier seems to charge for every little thing but the air you breathe in the cabin. I suppose that will be next. Frontier used to be really good and now it is aging planes, unhelpful staff, and nickel and diming their passengers to death. Next time we will fly with another carrier."

Pros: "That they got me to my destination safely."
Cons: "This airline is a joke. Shame on me for booking late and choosing the cheapest ticket. BUT knowing what I now know, I would have selected the Delta flight for $80 more. Here's why: No TSA Pre-Check. This aspects alone is a deal breaker. Pay for carry-on bag AND IT COSTS $40. Pay for beverages, snacks. Seats don't recline - "pre-reclined for your maximum comfort." Whatever Tray table is metal and tiny. You couldn't even fit an iPad mini on it, let alone a lap top. So, I put my MacBook on my lap to work, but it's uncomfortable, MacBook slides off. You're hitting the person next to you with your elbows. AND I have to take off my jacket, to protect my MacBook against hitting the metal tray table, so I got cold. No internet. It's 2016. No internet. It's 2016. Never again."

Cons: "Worker at the gate was not friendly at all but crew on board was better. I had my 83 year old mother traveling with me & the cramped seating was a little too aggressive. After everyone boarded, they were still trying to sell some of the empty extra legroom seats and I feel at that point they could have sold them at a bargain. I hated to rate Entertainment a 2 but there wasn't any at all. Ive been flying Frontier for about 6 years and it's a shame they now charge for carryons and have been charging for seating for awhile. I'm sure I will fly frontier again in the near future but I feel that the extra charges took a lot away from the excitement of obtaining a good deal. The pilot seemed very competent and friendly."

Pros: "overall the aircraft and schedule was ok"
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive at our destination. It was an absolute nightmare to get it back!! I had to call the airline about 50 times, where most of the calls were not answered. I had to keep calling and following up. When the luggage did come they only delivered one of the 2 pieces. The calling marathon had to be resumed most of which went unanswered! We finally had to rely on the delivery company to provide alternate numbers where there was a possibility to get an answer. Absolute nightmare!!! Never never will I travel this airline."

Cons: "I was helping my mother - in - law check in and board - she needed wheel chair assistance. We were in line to drop off a bag that we had checked in online an hour before the flight. There were 5 people in the line with only 2 reps helping. Since I hadn't printed the boarding pass, I tried to print the pass at the self-help kiosks getting the message that I needed to see an agent. The cut-off for checked in baggage is 45 mins before the flight, however the reps were making no effort to expedite the service. In 15 mins they had helped 2 people making us the 3rd in line and the line had grown to an additional 5-6 people behind us. 45 mins before the flight they refused to take in any bags for checking - in. Since I was able to take the checked in bag with me, I asked that the agent print the boarding pass for my mother in law and call for wheel chair assistance. The agent called for wheel chair assistance but refused to print the boarding pass! The one thing that the ticketing / check in agent should be able to do is to print a boarding pass for a reservation that is fully paid. Because of this my mother in law had to miss her flight and we paid an additional $99 to get onto the next flight. I was so taken aback when the agent refused to print the boarding pass, that I did not even know how to convince her to do her job. This is probably the worst experience I have ever had with any airline!"

Pros: "Both flights were on time. There was no difficulty with boarding, everything proceeded in an orderly manner with no untoward delays."
Cons: "Misleading information regarding carry-on baggage. Extra charge if I assigned myself a seat when I printed my boarding pass the night before the flight. Extra charge for every, little, thing. $1.99 for 3-4 ounces of Coke. 3-4 ounces of warm water with no ice. Seats that did not adjust. Minimal service from the flight attendants. On early morning flights (both of mine departed at 6 a.m.), when everyone was snoozing as well as they could, a flight attendant came on the VERY LOUD pa system with a commercial trying to get us to apply for the Frontier credit card. I will AVOID flying on Frontier in the future, and use it only as a last resort when I can't get a flight on ANY other airline (as was the case with this last-minute, necessary flight). It is the first time in over 30 years of flying that I had a BAD experience."

Pros: "Very nice crew. Arrived early. Modern spiffy cabin, seats are molded on backs so a bit more room for passengers. I loved being able to add a tip on food bill, a way of expressing appreciation for the crew has been missing for too long."
Cons: "Seats don't recline! I think my back started to hurt because I couldn't change seat; standing up helped. There's no charge for carrying on personal items but I saw a family with personal size shopping bags that was shocked to learn that a carry on suitcase wasn't a personal item and woul cost $60 (can that be right?). I tried to help them and could see that their English wasn't too strong. They hadn't understood the clear written rules and were severely punished to the point of crying - they won't fly Frontier again."

Pros: "The flight was very smooth and the crew was very courteous."
Cons: "I also don't understand having to pay for your carry-on. At least make the first one free. I understand it's more along the lines of weight for the plane and which would affect the amount of fuel but that should all be calculated when they review the passenger manifest and assume that people have at least one carry-on and then adjust fuel accordingly for people who want to bring more than one carry-on. I gave food and entertainment a one star because my flight was a short flight and we didn't get really either of those except having to buy snacks and some soda"

Cons: "Just a super cheapo airline that offered an "inexpensive" ticket that then they charge you for everything else, with no warning about the hidden fees. Like baggage: you can't take on more than one free, tiny check-in without paying at least $35, if not much more. Uncomfortable seats. The flight was 3 hours late when a neighbor flight to the same city (on Southwest) took off on time, and so they gave us this lame $10 voucher to appease us, and yet we couldn't use it anywhere, just pissing you off more. They wouldn't accept it at the airport or on the plane, so, what the heck?"

Pros: "Getting OFF the plane"
Cons: "The new seats are flat out terrible. They're thin, poorly padded, and uncomfortable after only 15 minutes of sitting on them. I'm 6'-4", tall, but not a giant and my knees were against the seat in front of me. Legroom was nonexistent. When the stewardesses came through with food and beverages, it was $2 for a can of soda. So after paying an extra $30 to check one bag, and then paying ridiculous prices for a can of soda, and getting cramps after a 2-hour flight with no legroom, Frontier has moved to the bottom of my list for any future flights."

Pros: "Frontier staff in SFO (San Francisco) friendlier to passengers than ORD (Chicago). Kept luggage at SFO for pickup when I arrived"
Cons: "Missed flight by 10 mins. Was able to check-in 1-hr before a domestic flight and get my boarding pass printed. However, the attendants were not interested in expediting me, and 4 other passengers going on the same flight, through security. Ultimately, 5 passengers with boarding passed missed their flight even though we had arrived to the airport and checked-in at an appropriate time! After the plane left, an attendant assisted a passenger to rebook their flight, but then left to go on break and left 3 of us stranded. Very few Frontier attendants available to help us. Had to pay $225 for another same day flight to SFO using American Airlines. Learning points: - hard deadline, need to be at gate 10 mins before departure time - lofty and esoteric reimbursement process - Frontier does not participate in TSA Pre-Check, so arrive 2 hours ahead of departure time for domestic flights - Frontier does not participate in other airline organizations, so unless you rebook with Frontier you are paying full price for the new ticket"

Pros: "Nothing. Worst airline ever. Rude, incompetent staff."
Cons: "The $60 charge for carry one that I discovered as I was about to board the plane. In 42 years of travel, never been charged for this. My bag ended up being more expensive than my flight! I thought I had found a $49 bargain flight on Kayak, and it ended up being a red herring. I feel completely ripped off. Not to mention, I saw a member of the flight staff treat 2 passengers ahead of me with very little respect. I was not the only passenger fooled by the carry-on scam. This entire experience with Frontier was like a Quentin Tarrantino movie. Never again!!"

Pros: "Our flight didn't get canceled."
Cons: "I did not like that the airline does not mention anything about paying for carry on, paying for all drinks and food or paying to choose a seat, which were extremely uncomfortable by the way. All of these costs combine could have equaled or exceeded other ticket prices. It felt misleading and not worth the effort. I also thought that the sales pitch on the flight was disruptive and annoying. If you are going to represent yourself as a budget airline, stop trying to nickle and dime me everywhere you can."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. Frontier is awful and I will never fly with them again. They cancelled the flight for "weather" more than 12 hours in advance. By the time the flight was supposed to leave, flights were taking off from O'Hare without any problem. Next, they could not have been less cooperative in helping my find an alternative route to San Fran. After more than 2 hours of arguing with Frontier personnel, they magically found a way for me to get there via Denver. Finally, once I boarded the flight to Denver, the crew could not have been any less competent. I saw at least two instances where they had given away the seat of someone who had checked into the flight, then had to scramble to find them a new seat. Frontier is the worst."

Pros: "The boarding process was easy enough."
Cons: "The crew was absolutely clueless. Half way through the flight no less than 6 sleeping passengers were woken and shuffled about because they discovered two other passengers had seated themselves in the priority area. I understand the desire to ensure passengers are seated properly. However, it was ludicrous to wake 6 people who were not at fault for this error on their part. They should have been more vigilant at the start, or left the rest of us alone after the fact. Terrible understanding of customer service. Also, our flight arrived early, however, they didn't have the appropriate gate available. Poor planning as we knew we'd be early about half way through the flight. Would not fly again, not because of the disorganized gate business, however, there's a real lack of customer focus on this airline."

Cons: "Frontier has trained their staff and written their website to "threaten" passengers into buying extra's like bags, assigned seats ."if your bag doesn't fit we will charge you 120 at the gate", I cant' guarantee a refund" "you may not get a seat if you don't buy one online (they warn you three times on the website before you can complete online check in...we were "randomly assigned" 6 seats together for free by skipping the buy seats step and completing online check in). On frontier you can only take one personal item for free. carry on is $70 (35 one way) and checked bags are $60 (30 one way)...MORE at the airport. I also fault Kayak here, they don't compare apples to apples - united carry on bags are free.. I bought 5 checked bags (6 people flying), but we decided to just do a personal item in the end. Turns out you can only get bag refunds at the airport ticket office ..not online or by phone. The ticket agent said there was no guarantee we would get a refund, but she would put a note in our record. Hmmm....prepaid $300 for a service we didn't use and may not get refunded. Online check in tries to bully you into buying seats...you have to say no 3 times before they let you complete check in. That would have been another $120 for the 6 of us. The best for last. On the return flight home, we went to ticketing agent to get refund for return bags ( the outbound ticket agent would only put a note in our record for the outbound flight, so we had to stand in line again for the return flight). She told us there was a gate change and sent us to the international terminal (a different terminal than the rest of Frontier flights). She marked the new terminal on our tickets. We were at the gate for 45 minutes and realized there were only about 10 other passengers for our flight there. I tried to call frontier on the white airport phone. They just had a recording and told me to dial an 800 number. I was on hold for 20 minutes before i got a person who said he couldn't get me any information. The flight wasn't listed on the departures board in the international terminal we had been sent to, so finally we decided we'd better go to the original gate. We had to go to another termanial, go through security again, and found our flight boarding at the original gate. The woman who sent us to the wrong terminal was at original gate loading passengers, so she knew there had been a mistake. She said they had made two announcements. The trouble is, the announcements were not audible in the international terminal. I told her there were several other passengers at the wrong gate, one of whom was elderly and would need help making the flight, No apology, and when we continued to try to get help for the other passengers, they, told us to move away from the podium or they would call security!!! ARGH!"
