Yet, they 1st said we would board a little late because og clearing out the previous flight. And, no one could get carry-ons above their own seats and had to go back to then come forward. The attendants should monitor better what is brought onboard. I thought they were rude. And it took almost an hr to get our luggage at the carosel."
Cons: "A bigger plane."
Pros: "Great crew and staff."

Cons: "Twice delayed because of delays in Newark connection. Need more room in coach."
Pros: "Comfortable aircraft with an efficient and present crew."
Cons: "First, passengers had to wait in the main terminal for a bus ride to a remote terminal to wait to board. The only food items offered in first class were unhealthful packaged snacks. On a flight such as this, at 8:12 am, something like a breakfast wrap would be more appropriate, especially considering the fare charged."
Pros: "Nothing spectacular when sitting in economy."
Cons: "Agent at lost baggage was less than desirable. His attempts to read my mind failed miserably."
Pros: "Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment so 1 star rating. Kind passenger switched seats so I could sit with my husband and son. Would have had to sit behind them if not for her. Paying extra for isle seats was a surprise."

Pros: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "These planes feel like they are made of Legos. They are absurdly tiny and uncomfortable (and I am a small woman). Hot and stinky when boarding and no room for you or your carry on luggage. The days of glamorous air travel seem very far away."
Pros: "extremely friendly, smiling, and helpful service by the flight attendants, comfortable upgraded first class seat, timely arrival."
Cons: "No food service other than snack/ junk food."
Cons: "First of all, the announcements that come on after we take off and last for 20 minutes is very annoying. We have brains, we can figure out how to plug our head phones in to watch the inflight entertainment. After saying the “show” was going to start, it never did. The screens were down the whole time and it remained black. good thing I had my phone with a movie on it, or I would be very bored for the 3 1/2 hour flight. Never flying with American Airlines again."
Cons: "An S80? Really? This plane was older than me! Horrible plane! The crew looked like they had been up since 4 am. Looked exhausted and unfriendly. I do want to clarify that this was an American Airlines operated plane, not etihad."
Pros: "Flying beats driving"
Cons: "no entertainment or food."
Pros: "The airplale MD 80 are old"
Pros: "The plane wasn't full so that was soo nice."
Cons: "No TV's or outlets."

Flight was delayed on the tarmac for almost an hour due to missing part. When flight arrived in SLC, gate wasn't open (at nearly 1 AM) and had to wait on tarmac again for 10-15 minutes."
Pros: "Flight was good, there was no entertaiment, so i put one, but the flight was only almost 4 hrs. At night."

Pros: "Upgraded to business class"
Cons: "I've never been so cold on a flight in my life. Had two blankets on me and still shivered the whole flight. Others in the cabin were wearing coats and sweaters - in July. Crazy cold."
Pros: "Was up to standard for everything. nothinf lacking, not exceptional"
Pros: "We flew out of Dallas on AA Eagle and what a great flight! Super roomy, great staff, newest aircraft. Loved it .. wish we could have flown all the way home to SLC on the Eagle!"
Cons: "The only thing we didn't like was the turbulance coming into Amarillo (tornado warning!) but the AA Eagle handled it just fine .. so truly there are NO complaints .. Love this short flight between Dallas and Amarillo!"
Pros: "The FAs on this flight were nice, engaging and caring, the way they should be, so I was happy about that."
Cons: "There was a teenager in front of me that was turning back every few seconds and made me nervous what she was looking back for. Then, there was an elderly woman sitting right next to me that kept pushing me every time she'd get out her tablet, pills, pocketbook, etc. By the end of the short 2-hour flight, I've had it with her."
Pros: "Great selection of movies, comfortable flight overall."
Cons: "Only one drink service for 5 hours, attendants not friendly or attentive, and it took an eternity--again with AA--for the bags to hit the carousel. Over 30 minutes' wait."
Pros: "Laura was very helpful and so was the gate agent."
Cons: "Small plane with no leg room"
Pros: "The site was easy to navigate"

Pros: "Nothing...I missed this flight due to negligence, miscommunication, and incompetence by the front desk agents."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating in light of the maintenance delay. Especially for those of us with small children."
Cons: "Look, delays suck. We fly about only once a year, and we ALWAYS have a delay. ALWAYS. Air traffic control at Newark will delay a flight for a hangnail."
Cons: "proverbially poor United service, this time compounded by weather-related flight delay. when gate agents are nowhere to be found and all the information one gets is terse departure update via the app, one knows that flight should have booked on a different airline."
Pros: "We landed 45 minutes early!"
Pros: "It was a good flight, everything was good as expected."
Cons: "The carry-on I had was oversized, so I paid the$30 fee. Then I got to the gate and they informed me that the Representative was supposed to give me a luggage label along with my receipt. I only got my receipt and I was then charged another$65 for my bag. Not happy about that additional baggage fee."
Pros: "The ease of boarding."
Cons: "The air conditioner went out and it was quite warm."
Cons: "I never got there."

Cons: "I only made it as far as Chicago, and my bag was fairly comprehensively lost as I did so"
Pros: "The small plane, all seats were good seats"
Cons: "The guy that was farting on the plane"
Cons: "I didn’t like being told I couldn’t use the restroom in front because it was for 1st class only. I was in a wheelchair and dealing with spine issues which made it very difficult to walk at all. Then on my flight home from GR the flight ended up being 3 hrs late. I was in terrible pain."
Pros: "AT THE TERMINAL IN PORTLAND THE ATTENDANTS WERE SUPER HELPFUL AS I WAS CONFUSED ABOUT GETTING MY TICKETS."
Cons: "JUST BEFORE BOARDING THOSE OF US PASSENGERS NOT ALREADY BOARDED WERE TOLD WE COULD NOT BRING OUR CARRY ONS WITH US AS THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH SPACE TO STOW THEM OVERHEAD. SO WE WERE TOLD TO SEND THEM DIRECTLY TO OUR FINAL DESTINATION. WHEN I BOARDED THE PLANE I COUNTED 7 OVERHEAD STORAGE BINS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE TO MY AISLE WHERE I WAS SEATED WERE NOT FILLED AND THERE WERE SEVERAL SUCH BINS ON MY SIDE OF THE AISLE (I DID NOT HAVE TIME TO COUNT THEM BEFORE I SAT DOWN). I ASKED AN ATTENDANT WHY THIS WAS SO GIVEN WE WERE TOLD THE BINS WERE FILLED JUST AS WE BOARDING FROM THE DEPARTURE AREA. SHE WAS POLITE AND SAID SHE WASN'T SURE ABOUT WHO MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE TERMINAL BUT THAT IN ANY EVENT MY CARRY ON WOULD ARRIVE SAFE AND SOUND IN VANCOUVER - IT DID BUT WITH MY BOOK FOOD SNACK WHICH i HAD INTENDED TO USE WHILE ON MY WAY TO CHI. AND VAN."
Pros: "First time first class flyer. It was great!"
Cons: "Being separated from my wife in seating when we booked before others that we talked to!"
Pros: "The flight attendants. Especially Meagan and Heather. Amber was a,sweetheart too. I had the same attendants 3 out of 4 of my flights that weekend. So cool. When they realized it was me again they spoiled me rotten. So good I feel like unless I have those 3 as my attendants I won't fly United again"
Cons: "No food options. No free food"
Cons: "Really awful, disorganized and unapologetic."
Pros: "Fine short flight."
Cons: "LAX makes you think you are in a 3rd world country. Its dirty - poorly laid out and no amenities. I had to walk 2 miles and go through 2 TSA points to transfer from the international arrival terminal to terminal 8 for my final connection. Comparing LAX to the Frankurt Germany airport is like night and day. Finally get to my gate - and I have to watch a pop up ad to get 45 min of complimentary wifi."
Pros: "Service was outstanding"
Cons: "no food, no entertainment, tiny squished seats"
Cons: "Flight was late, at the end they told people to hurry up so they can be on their way with the next destination"
Cons: "Delays. Miscommunication."
Cons: "I never made it to Newark"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "The plane dropped during decent."
Cons: "Cant take carry on AND personal bag if im not premium member."
Cons: "Seat room was terrible, ridiculous."
Pros: "Flight did not happen"
Pros: "Love the stroop waffles."
Cons: "Partially at fault of late arrival, but we only landed 10 minutes late, and were immediately rushed through baggage claim and customs to re-check our bags for the next flight. There my bags were scanned and all the guy said to me was "ooh that's too close" and walked away. I then stood in a line that did not move for over ten minutes, with only three people in front of me, while 6-7 desks were empty and doing nothing but talking amongst each other. I then called the guy that scanned my bags back over to ask why I was still standing there while my next flight was about to board and he told me I'd been rebooked!! I didn't want to wait for the next flight so then had to sprint, with my bags, from terminal 2 to 7 (which if you've ever walked through LAX you'd understand how unpleasant that was alone). I did make the flight, but just, thanks only to the girls at the checkout counter who were actually willing to help me, although not eager to."
Pros: "The crews are nice"
Cons: "The plane was shaking that made me sick"
Pros: "Not a single thing!"
Cons: "Arrived late"
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "My grandma passed away and the airline would not work with me when I tried to change my flight. Very upsetting. Mark Davis"
Pros: "We stood in line forever to then be told the clerk couldn't ch we ck us in. When we tried the kiosk it didn’t work. Long story short we missed our flight due to their poor organization of the line and crowd."
Cons: "The confusion caused by lack of direction from the staff."
Cons: "Seating next to the bathroom is gross"
Pros: "Friendly and polite! Crew."
Cons: "Middle seat. Space too small."
Pros: "Couldn't really figure out your Wi-Fi system so I just read a book"
Cons: "It's not really easy to set up your Wi-Fi system through the United app"
Cons: "No agent to check in when I arrived at airport. Only at gate. No advance check in or advance seating. Allowed passengers to have more than 2 bags. Flight was late. No help getting to next gate or holding aircraft. Absolutely uncomfortable sitting."
Pros: "They were always very attentive to let you know about gate changes or seat changes. Which to me personally is very important. I have had very bad experiences with other airlines in the past because they did not communicate properly their gate change and I missed my flight and missed events I was flying for. Excellent job to United for communicating gate changes very well! They did not break any of my luggage and the seats were fairly comfortable. The employees were also very attentive and willing to answer any questions."
Cons: "It was a bit confusing gate wise. I did have to ask an employee what was going on but they cleared up the confusion pretty quick. I flew on a jet verses a regular plane, and it was very loud. I had my movie turned up all the way with headphones and I still could barely hear it. It wasn't the fact that I couldn't hear my movie but in general it just hurt my ears. I was sitting towards the back of the jet though so I'm assuming if I was closer to the front it wouldn't have been as bad? Overall it was still a great experience"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "Canceled flight, booked me an impossible connection, put on stayby when I get the tickets months in advance. Offered no vouchers and made me fly out on a diffrent day. Hs aircraft delays on all flights"
Cons: "Never was able to make this flight. See above."
Pros: "Polite staff"
Cons: "I HAVENT EVEN GOTTEN THERE YET!"
Pros: "Staff excellent"
Cons: "Passengers space is insanely small, staff work under restrictive conditions"
Cons: "We paid for first class seats from Houston to Salt Lake City, thinking it would be provide us more than a regular seat. It did not. We received one drink and were allowed to pick from a basket of snacks (packaged pretzels and cookies), but that was it. No additional food, no entertainment options on our plane, no blanket, no pillows, no hot towels. We basically paid all that extra money for a little bigger seat. It was not worth it. This was our first time flying with United in a while and it will definitely be our last."
Cons: "New plane but uncomfortable seats that don't lean back... There was only one attendant for the entire business and economy class cabin... The first class had an attendant but only one for the rest of the ENTIRE plane! There was a TON of turbulence and we never heard ONCE anything from the attendants or the pilots about the bad weather! Scared and uncomfortable the entire flight!"
Cons: "Flight was originally cancelled then it got delayed an hour the next day because of a catering truck not being there on time.. Freaking joke"
Pros: "Every detsil"
Pros: "The ease of getting onboard."
Cons: "I paid extra for the exit seats thinking there were going to be more comfortable, they were worse then the regular seats and I felt ripped off. On top of that you charge for water? That’s silly."
Pros: "I didn’t like a think since I checked in online and arrived within the 45-60min window to check my luggage. The system said it couldn’t find me. Frontier marked me as a no show before the time window closed"
Cons: "A full refund or they could’ve let me use that ticket price I’ve towards another flight equal to or of lesser value. What really ticked me off was I had to pay for my bags for them to turn around right after I gave them my card to swipe they then mark me as a no show getting even more money from. I will never use frontier ever again. I’d rather pay more money and delta"
Pros: "Finding a better price than the actual site of the air line"
Cons: "Nothin honestly."
Pros: "We had plenty of room with our young children. Everything was super clean!"
Cons: "Free water"
Cons: "It was great! Left 5 minutes early and arrived 30 minutes early! My bag was waiting for me when I got to baggage claim - no waiting!!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice after boarding, we had to sit in the plane for almost 2 hours. I dont think frontier is worth the price anymore, you definatley get what you pay for. I had to check a bag both ways because a checked bag is cheaper than their fee to carry on a bag. There were no complimentary drinks or snack even after having to sit on the plane for so long. I requested an aisle seat and got stuck in the middle. Overall, think I will be paying the extra for any other airline than frontier."
Cons: "I cut my trip short to sit in the airport for 4 hours, then sit on a plane for another hour."
Cons: "Always LATE!! Leaving Salt Lake City on Wednesday and returning tonight leaving Denver. Frontier has a habit of “late”."
Pros: "The seats had lots of room"
Cons: "The flight attendants were very informal and not well groomed. The announcements made were not very professional"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "You had to pay for orange juice"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "$45 to put a carry-on item in the overhead bins is ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "All over"
Cons: "Seat comfort , no water"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "Still Waiting in St Louis"
Pros: "Check in was breeze. The agent was courteous and efficient."
Cons: "No real complaints about the flight, HOWEVER, Frontier's luggage handlers (probably in Denver) ruined a piece of my luggage. I got home very late and didn't notice the problem until the next morning. I checked their baggage policy and noticed there was a four-hour window to report lost or damaged luggage, so I was out of luck on a $100 piece of luggage. I recognize damage can be caused by any airline, but when you have to pay to check a bag AND carry one on, you would think you'd be given more than four hours to report a problem."
Cons: "Won't ever come to kayak or frontier"
Cons: "Way to many charges from baggage check fees to seat fees"
Cons: "It being cancelled and not given any alternative flights"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No complimentary snacks."
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "The surprise fee for a carry on was a shock."
Cons: "it's was delayed and made me miss work. very disappointed."
Pros: "Everything went great"
Cons: "Can't take a carry on or you pay. Lame!"
Cons: "We spent hours on the plane broke down. They would not give us water."
Cons: "no free snack? not even a bag of peanuts?! disappointing"
Cons: "Boarding was late"
Pros: "Will never use Frontier again!!"
Cons: "Will never use Frontier again!!"
Cons: "• Questionable luggage policy • Fees for carry on luggage • Fees for seat selection • Very, very uncomfortable seating • Plane smelled bad • Will not fly again"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Hour flight delay for some baggage that could have gone out on the next flight. Especially since it was so late at night."
Pros: "We bearded quicky"
Cons: "Being an hour and a half late."
Cons: "Paying for carry on."
Cons: "See previous comments"
Pros: "The cheap fare."
Cons: "Paying for luggage that I carried on. Paying for every drink, except water. Paying for snacks."
Pros: "rally expenser the food"
Cons: "Baggage drop lines were unbelievable. Foreign travelers were in the same line as domestic. There were only four agents to handle 100s of passengers. When I checked in online, to select a seat I had to pay an additional fee and then was also charged for my carry on bag which increased my fare by $68. In addition they do not participate in TSA precheck which further delayed my security process. Although I had allowed plenty of time (1 1/2 hours) to drop my bag and get through security by the time I got to my gate my flight was already boarding. Additionally you are charged for everything on the flight even water which for a 3 1/2 flight is ridiculous."
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "No wifi"
Cons: "SAME AS ABOVE !"
Cons: "Given a seat in row 4 which didn't recline- aghh!"
Cons: "3 hr layover. Again seats suck."
Cons: "The seats on the flight had less leg room than most airlines. No free snacks, drinks, etc. Those for purchase outrageously priced."
