I tried talking to a Frontier representative but every time I called their customer service number it was all automated. I was unable to speak with someone regarding the situation. I ended up having to spend $600 to book another flight with American Airlines due to my need to be in El Paso, Texas today. I still have not been able to speak with anyone at this point."
Pros: "Everything was great except the long delays. We were suppose to leave at 206 but the flight kept getting delayed. I understand delays but it would have been nice if someone would have told us why. There was no one at the desk for a long time. But once we were on the plane and in the air everything was great."

Cons: "The seats were the most uncomfortable thing ever. They are hard plastic with a thin pleather lining and don't recline. I could not get anything close to comfortable the whole flight. The "tray tables" are so tiny, they could never hold anything remotely close to the size of a tray. You can't even have a cup of coffee on it and rest your book or tablet next to it. They don't serve so much as a free cup of coffee. And we each had to pay $30 for our carry-on, which pretty much wiped out the savings of a Frontier flight. Our checked bag arrived about an hour and 15 minutes after we landed. The experience was just awful overall. It's just not worth the lower price, believe me."
