Very clean and on point with the timing

The flight from Sydney to Adelaide was never ticketed and I was stranded in Sydney! Worst experience ever!

Cons: "Not losing my bag on a direct flight"
Pros: "Professional crew, no fanfare, standard was excellence."
Cons: "Faster flight time in air..."
Pros: "I appreciate that Delta chooses customer safety over profit by not packing flights and continuing to social distance."
Cons: "Well if my future father in law was on the flight it would have been wonderful, but he passed away July 7th, and I did get refunded, and we are mourning his loss and keep getting notifications about the flight and emails which makes it very difficult mentally. So it would be nice if Delta would get their process of refunds especially when it's a death to maybe not get notified. I was the one that purchased the tickets for him in April."
Pros: "Everyone was perfect..!!"
Cons: "Is a international flight and you guys don't have a real meal. We appreciate the snacks but a real meal is necessary"
Cons: "Had no entertainment, asked the attendent, she called simebody, but it didn't help and she didn't bother to come and explain. Food was really bad, undercooked and cold."
Pros: "Great crew members. Very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process was awful. The gate agent was extremely rude - was shocked she was representing Delta. There was police on board arresting two passengers and crew was not saying anything."
Cons: "Can't tell how the flight was because missed connecting flight from LAX to SJC because Westjet from YYZ to LAX had a mechanical issue. They end up replacing a tire which caused a 1.5 hr flight delay"
Pros: "Seats are fine. Ordering system is up to date."
Cons: "After the first two hours of my flight (which I sleep through) I couldn’t buy a drink a soda or anything."
Cons: "My kids were asleep when the flight attendant passed the snacks . I asked to get the snack for them and she told me they will have to get it in the back of plane once awake. Didn’t argue but was surprised"
Pros: "Super friendly staf, big enough seat, good enough food, enough room for luggage."
Cons: "Seat was smaller than EVA and food not quite as good."
Pros: "Food was good, boarding was fast and efficient"
Cons: "Smallest seats I’ve seen in a while. Very uncomfortable. Still haven’t announced baggage carousel but that’s jfk for ya. WiFi didn’t work on flight either."
Pros: "When I arrived at Detroit I noticed there was an earlier flight going out to Amsterdam. The nice Delta rep gave me a new boarding pass for the earlier flight because there were empty seats on that plane."
Pros: "Pleasant."
Cons: "It was scheduled so late at night."
Cons: "7 hours delayed. Poor front desk worker, nice flight attendants!"
Pros: "Good snack selection, plane departed on time, no issues."
Cons: "Gate agent @ LAX calling every single passenger with a lot of noise around couldn't hear. I had to go and check myself a couple of times."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Pros: "No issues boarding as a group of 6, including one child. We all had at least a personal item and/or a carry-on to stow. The flight was easy, comfortable, and the free movies were current and definitely helped pass the time."
Cons: "We were seated right behind the delta comfort+ and saw the special snacks they got. Being teased by that is not a huge deal, just a little disappointed by the regular snack selection, the snack mix was definitely subpar."
Pros: "Getting home in one piece"
Cons: "Why do airlines schedule 2 flights for the exact same time in the exact same gate? Just to watch passengers squeeze in like cattle??"
Pros: "My experience with Delta was excellent. Everything from checking in, boarding, flight, and landing was simple. Everyone I came into contact with was extremely helpful and courteous."
Cons: "For a 3 hour flight no onboard entertainment. Such a let down"
Cons: "Delayed so I was not home until middle of the night."
Pros: "Confort"
Cons: "The floor was litte bit dirty"
Pros: "Everyone was really nice and responsive."
Cons: "Seats are a little older. Not as comfortable as other flights. But not bad."
Pros: "Kyle was our flight attendant. He was great. Attentive the whole trip and served us water and snacks."
Pros: "Love the inflight entertainment and the usb plug for phones. Flight left on time and go in a little early"
Cons: "Did not love getting charged $2 for headphones and the girl sitting next to me getting them for free. Super annoying"
Cons: "4+ total hour delay"
Pros: "Had a fast flight from LA to SLC was very pleasant crew was great."

Pros: "A simple and pleasant experience!"
Cons: "Everyone was professional and polite."
Pros: "all flights were right on time. service was excellent. crew was very friendly. Comfort+ seating was excellent very comfortable"
Pros: "I liked that we finally arrived."
Cons: "I didn't like the lack of communication on Delta's behalf by their employees throughout our plane delay process. We were very delayed, and would be getting alerts on our phones before anyone told us what was going on. The forced us to change planes and didn't explain what the plan was or how we why we were transitioning. A lot of passengers had to ask each other what was going on, due to this lack of direction."
Pros: "They were honest about why we late taking off."
Cons: "Having to wair for them to fuel the plane"
Pros: "Plenty of entertainment options Frequent meals and snacks Attentive service from flight crew"
Cons: "Boarding process was slower than anticipated One of our bags did not make it"
Pros: "My flight was delayed 40 minutes in Detroit after a 3 hour lay over we boarded the plane. Then 45 minutes into the flight they said the landing gear light came on and they would be going back to change plans. My mother with Lymes disease was waiting 3 hours in Providence supposed to arrive a 11:50 instead 2:50am we were so tired missed a day of vacation."
Pros: "First flight"
Cons: "Too packed"
Pros: "The stewards/stewardess were very helpful. The trip was very pleasant."
Cons: "Great customer service from all staff. Mannerisms, snacks, and safety precautions."
Pros: "Both check in and gate agents were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process seems to have some hiccups...like everyone crowding the gate and the wrong people boarding at the different boarding times. This all began when airlines charged for baggage and carry on became the only way to travel without excess fees. There is not enough overhead storage for everyone to carry-on so let's go back to no fees for baggage. The boarding process will become smooth again."
Pros: "On time, efficient boarding, no lines or delays. Attendants not as top notch as on the domestic leg but we're friendly and efficient. Loved the seat back entertainment options, watched a movie, listened to 2 podcasts, and enjoyed some excellent blues music. All while tracking he flight progress. Made the 6 hour flight go by quickly and not mind the bumpy air in the tropics."
Pros: "Movie selection"
Pros: "The crew friendly,boarding was easy the flight was comfortable they even went around and gave blankets they could do a little more with the snacks. There were TVs so the entertainment was really good. Seats didn't go back, wish they did."
Cons: "I wish they had more snacks like JetBlue but all was fine."
Cons: "Our carry-on luggage was taken away from us because the gate agent decided it looked too big. A family of four with luggage larger than ours was allowed to carry theirs on. Our luggage was then sent down to the baggage carousel at Baltimore. We took carry-on to avoid this. I don't think we will fly Delta again."
Pros: "Seats sized for a human and not a pencil or anyone under the age of 3, actual padding on the seats, (decision making executives may have possibly taken a flight themselves that wasn't in first class), amazing entertainment, friendly and professional staff. Overall this may have been THE MOST COMFORTABLE coach flight I've experienced since the airline industry started herding people like cattle. I think the armrests may have actually reached high enough to BE an armrest. Individual video in seat backs was perfect with touch screen and more movies than I could count, music, tv show series, and more. $2 headsets for sale if your forgot to bring yours. All in all this was a fantastic experience. Delta, keep this up and people will actually choose you over other airlines. I know I will."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor hospitality by alaska airline staff, especially by MrPavel at gate H4, 01nov2016, prior boarding around 0730am"
Pros: "Lots of great food n free new movies! Crew was polite and on top of their stuff :)"

Cons: "Compliance with departure times"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and airlkne system was down"
Pros: "Flight was great and crew was very nice as usual."
Cons: "When I got to Guatemala I was told I couldn't check in unless I had a ticket leaving Costa Rica. I have never had a problem with this in the past. I had to have someone purchase a ticket last min out of costa Rica so I could check in. When I got to CR they didn't even ask me for my ticket or proof"

Pros: "Excellent!!!"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Take off on time"
Pros: "Airplane crew was friendly. The flight departed on time."
Cons: "We traveled with an infant who sat on our laps. We were never asked about the infant traveling until we went to check in at the desk and were told we needed to pay taxes for the baby at a rate of 10% of the cost of the ticket. But because we were doing it on the day of the flight, 10% was almost $200! We did not receive good customer service from staff, who simply told us we "should have known to investigate this." We have never been asked to do this when flying with a baby before! This was after an hour and a half of already waiting to check in our bags. We were waiting so long and dealing with this issue for so long that we almost missed the flight! A terrible experience. Also, the web check in line took even longer than the line of people who had not checked in online beforehand! It was so slow, it added to us almost missing our flight. It was a waste of time to check in online, especially since they gave us new boarding passes when we checked our bags in anyway. We also had trouble finding both of our reservations, even though we booked them together as a family, so we ended up with seats that were not together. When we had an issue, we were given an attitude by the staff checking us in."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Changed gates at Panama without any alert until boarding time."

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No vegetarian options granted :( the planes are dirty."
Cons: "El aeropuerto internacional de Panama es sencillamente horrible y extremadamente caro y ni siquiera wifi free hay para los pasajeros que como yo tenemos que hacer escala. La señal para llamar por teléfono usando mi propia proveedor. Es un aeropuerto del siglo pasado que ya es hora COPA que tiene su centro de operaciones pongan de su parte para hacer más placentero la estadía en ese aeropuerto; aeropuertos como el CR o el de Bogotá no más sale uno del avión y hay excelente wifi que le permite a uno estar en contacto con la familia."
Pros: "The aireplane in clean. And the people ver y gently"
Cons: "Board not very organized"
Cons: "I went on the site and mentioned I was vegetarian, but I guess the 'snack' wasn't big enough to warrant a veggie option. I had to run from one flight to another, and my previous one only served breakfast, so it would have been really nice to have a veggie option. I put poor on entertainment because there was none, but it was a short flight, so not a big deal. Rest was great!"

Cons: "Entramos al avión 20 min tarde. Nos pusieron esperar en el avión, completamente full de pasajeros, 30 min sin aire acondicionado (en panamá, donde hace TANTO calor)! Después, tuvimos que esperar en la pista unos 20 min más, todavía sin aire acondicionado. Finalmente, pasamos casi todo el vuelo con los platos vacíos de la comida en nuestras mesas. JUSTO cuando el piloto dijo "prepara para aterrizar", pasaron corriendo para recoger la basura. En total, fue un vuelo muy incómodo. We boarded 20 min late. They made us wait on the plane, a completely booked flight, for 30 min without air conditioning (in Panamá, where the temperature is insufferable)! Later, we had to wait on the runway another 20 min, still lacking air conditioning. Finally, we spent almost the entire flight with our empty meal trays sitting in front of us. RIGHT when the captain announced "flight crew prepare the cabin for landing", the crew ran through to pick up the trays and trash. In total, it was a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Everything about them. The crew is so helpful and kind, flights are always on time, the planes are in great condition and the amenities included with your tickets makes it worth to choose COPA!"

Kayak is awesome! AA ran late on my return by about an hour

Only sad part is one bathroom worked in entire aircraft! And one Barbie sized bag pretzels 🥨 doesn’t cut it

Extremely late

Pros: "Non stop flight. Excellent departure time."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and friendly"
Cons: "There was a technical difficulty with the plane, which made a short delay in our flight."
Pros: "The flight attendant was very nice and tried to make our long delay tolerable"
Cons: "Why do you board a flight when the airport has grounded takeoffs? Just to meet some stupid metric for on-time departures, you make 100 people sit in the plane for 2 hrs, when you could have just let them wait to board. Misery."
Pros: "0ntime quick boarding"

Pros: "No problems, arrived early"

Pros: "Called 1-800 hotline and got a new flight"
Cons: "Was at gate onntime for flight. At boarding time passengers were informed if there was an issue with the plane and maintenance is on their way to check out the problem. 30 minutes later we were still till that maintenance is on their way. One hour later there is still no information as far as when the fight will leave but they kept updating the boarding time. There was only one person of the counter who could help re-assign passengers to different flights due to their layovers. After waiting in line for 40 minutes and the line making no movement I called the airline 1-800 hundred number and explain my situation to the American Airlines Airlines representative. they really give me a new flight that left 20 minutes later after my call if I did not call I would not mean it that flight nor any other fights that morning because they're all in the afternoon."
Pros: "No breakfast"
Pros: "Very courteous crew.pilot was amazing!! Landed in tough wind"
Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "boarding process"
Cons: "seats feel crowded. the actual seat is very uncomfortable, they lack padding."
Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"

Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "delayed"
Pros: "Flight departed on time.our trip out there was disappointing , causing us to get there very late costing us money."
Cons: "Airline did not notify us that as of 10-15-16 the Samsung Note 7 phone could not be bought on the plane. Because my sister Phillip Mae had a meeting at 10am in Greensboro, N.C. she was forced to give her phone to American Airline."
Pros: "My 17 year old daughter flew American Airlines to attend a wedding. She recently had spinal surgery and is not able to lift more than 5lbs. After being assured by the airline that staff would help her with her carryon luggage, she was abandoned and ignored by both flight attendants. Each flight attendant referred het to the next, so she is walking back and forth tor their amusement. Tears rolling down her face, finally an elderly passenger helped her. Then the staff gave her attitude the entire flight. She may appear healthy, but she was cut from her neck to her waist and had two rods inserted along with bone grafts. I just cannot believe how awful she was treated."
Cons: "The customer service was terroble. My daughter was humiliated."

Cons: "None"
Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system, it is outdated"
Pros: "Amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "Podrían dar comida, el viaje no es tan corto. Aire acondicionado demasiado frío, muchos pasajeros solicitaron regular l temperatura, no habían suficientes mantas"
Pros: "NOTHING!! I had to book them another flight thru another airline, because they had a delayed stating weather issues when it was nice and sunny so they couldn't make it on time. I will never trust United Airlines not for myself or any on my family members, nobody period!"
Cons: "Flight was canceled due to United's mismanagement of crews."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"
Cons: "I’m 6’3, misty in my legs, so the diminishing legroom is a problem. Can’t afford business class either. You should really have entertainment for a 5 hr flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with screens"
Cons: "Mediocre snack"
Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."
Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"
Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "entertainment was intermittent"
Pros: "friendliness"
Cons: "Ride was bumpy"
Cons: "Cramped"
Cons: "Late"
Pros: "Great staff and breakfast was very refreshing. Will definitely fly with United again."
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."
Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."
Pros: "Nothing, the fact that they were my membership partner for milege"
Cons: "Food was bad, boarding process sucks , seat sucks for first class, no free wifi , old dated devices , was not offer personal device on first class, crew seem mad all the time"
Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours causing me to miss my connecting flight to Indianapolis. Went to the service desk to re-book, and nothing could be done to get me out in time. Customer service was not great. I was flying to see my daughter graduate, and the only time they could get me out was when the graduation started. No hotel vouchers were given for the delay either, so the airport bench ended up being the bed. So I ended up being stranded in Newark for an additional 8 hours to just miss her graduation."
Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"
Pros: "I received an unexpected free upgrade to first class. Two thumbs up!"
Cons: "No complaints. Every aspect of the flight met or exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"
Cons: "Delays"
Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"
Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."
Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."
Pros: "Just the crew"
Cons: "Now when I fly united i feel like flying with spirit or jet blue o any other cheap airline, they charge for everything but sodas. They don't even carry blankets. The fact that for a long (3h- 4h and 5h) flight (took 4 overall during the holidays) united didn't offered ONE movie for free at least was very disappointing. Not one of my flights were on-time!"
Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"
Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."
Pros: "Nice comfortable flight slept through the flight"
Cons: "The delay of the flight"
Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"
Pros: "Early arrivals"
Cons: "On the express smaller planes you have to gate check your rollarboard suitcase which is fine but if your in first class they dont have a separate tag from economy class so i got my bag last even tho i was in first."
Pros: "Econ Plus was nice. Flight was fine."
Cons: "GA called for all "people with disabilities" to board first. How about simply asking for people who need a little extra time...PWD's is a bit of a label that doesn't work for me. While we were boarding the white female FA made a snide comment that maybe passengers should not bring more than one bag. She was also rude to the other FA."
Cons: "The wifi onboard was broken. There were no t.v. sets to watch."
Cons: "Flight delayed and I had to literally run to the next flight"
Pros: "The staff was really polite and were willig to answer all questions with a smile."
Cons: "The seat I was on could not be reclined. This was most unpleasant because it was an overnight flight. You should earn the clients - even economy passengers - when this seat is the one being assigned to them. I would payed beforehand to get a more comfortable seat if I'd known I was to fly on a no-reclining seat on an overnight flight."
Pros: "Everything! My grandparents needed special assistance with wheelchair and the crew was very helpful!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed the flight due to "operational difficulties". I understand this happens, however, their communication towards customers was unacceptable. They first announced a 20 min delay, followed by another 30 min, then 30 more and then 30 more than then 30 more! They basically kept us at the gate for 2 1/2 hours until the found another plane. For a business like United, and flying out of their hub this is completely unacceptable. We ended up leaving at 11pm for a flight scheduled at 8. They didnt give anything in the plane to make up for it. No food, no free wifi, nothing."
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."
Pros: "Terrible"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "I felt like tuna in a can."

Good at cheap rate

Flying from ATL to Denver was the worst experience I’ve had on a flight in 25 years. Frontier (especially at Atlanta) was the most careless and apathetic group of gate attendants I’ve ever experienced. After a 2.5 hour delay on our flight I arrived at the gate an hour before boarding. No less than twenty people came up to the desk wondering if the flight was still even going to happen. In the hour I sat there the gate attendant made exactly ZERO announcements as to what was going on. The single Frontier gate is at the end of the D terminal concourse owned by Delta, and I must say Frontier is doing a great job advertising for Delta. As you proceed further down the terminal toward the end where Frontier is, it’s like descending into hell. It goes from a reasonably quiet typical airport setting to a crowded chaotic nightmare where no one is in charge or is interested in helping. Not enough seating (even for mother’s and families struggling with kids who were miserable from the heat), air conditioning was either turned off or broken, no place to charge anything. Never again.

Pros: "Execution of the boarding/ exiting process"
Cons: "A little more space"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable. I was charged for my personal bag"
Pros: "The crew and attendants were professional. The seats were like sitting on a wooden bench, but that was expected. You get what you pay for from a CHEAP airline."
Cons: "It could have been on time . Not 3 hours and 45 minutes late!!!!!!!!!! When i came back to the airport the second time I got there 43 minutes before the flight YES, 3 THREE MINUTES after their cutoff time for checked bags, and they would not check my bag. I had to pay $16.00 extra to carry it on. I travel 7 months out of the year and have never had anything happen like this before. I was the only one in line and the "Customer Service" person was indignant and reminded me that i was the last person to sign in. I guess the last people to sign in, or maybe all people that sign in get treated with utter disrespect. I am 3 minutes late, Frontier is 3 hours and 45 minutes late and i am the one who gets treated with disrespect . Horrible!!!!! Inexpensive airline, NO they are a CHEAP airline that doesn't give a damn about its customers. I will be going to the internet, the Points Guys, the FAA, and to their corporate offices next. Although I won't be expecting a response from their corporate offices because the culture of CHEAP customer service starts at the top!"
Pros: "The view."
Cons: "The seats"
Cons: "Free pretzels or cookies"
Pros: "The flight crew was by far the most entertaining I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Free in flight snacks."
Cons: "Bathroom was beyond tiny"
Pros: "Frontier is well priced."
Cons: "Frontier flights are rarely on time. The chairs are very uncomfortable, they feel like lawn chairs."
Pros: "Very little. It’s a budget airline and it shows."
Cons: "Plenty. It’s budget in every sense of the word. Everything is an upcharge. Seats don’t recline. Water ain’t free. No snacks. Seats are thin and you’re jammed in. The check in staff is pure amateur hour compared to traditional carriers. Baggage claim was a bewildering mess."
Pros: "Nice ride. Nice crew!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Mechanical problems both ways. Never flying with them again"
Pros: "Clean"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable as much as in other airlines"
Pros: "Nice, roomy plane, on time flight"
Cons: "No free drinks or snack"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Frontier seats do NOT recline!! Enjoy that for a 4 hour flight!!!"
Pros: "Friendly staff smooth flight"
Pros: "Pilots seemed to know what they were doing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 1/2 hours. Staff gave no reason for delay and were annoyed at the customers for asking questions. Staff in the plane was the worst I have ever experienced. They simple cared nothing for their jobs or the customers"
Cons: "I don’t like that baggage is a fee, seat is another, and even snacks are another."
Pros: "The crew and especially the attendant at the baggage counter were all super nice and helpful"
Cons: "Everything else. -2.5 hour delay with no explanation or updates -Upcharges for everything -$45 to check a bag? -Uncharacteristic scary altitude drop-we are frequent flyers and felt like we were crashing -If you’re going to upcharge for everything including water, at lease offer the damn internet for a fee like everyone else. Nothing offered for in flight entertainment whatsoever. -expensive, poor food"
Cons: "Arrived 25 minutes prior to the flight, after checking in to hours before the flight. No electronic ticket available and no printers available at frontier ticket counter. No front tier personnel available. No front tier electronic kiosk to print tickets. Missed my flight because I could not get through security. Frontier need to upgrade their customer service at Providence TE Green Airport. It reads poorly and I will not fly frontier again"
Pros: "I liked the boarding process. I liked the crew."
Cons: "Why arent we offered free beverages and in flight snacks? At one time it was a regular occurance. Is the cost that great for a bottled water and a bag of pretzels?"
Pros: "Quick boarding. Early departure was nice."
Cons: "Seats are basically hard plastic and even a short 2 hour flight hurts. Bus seats are more comfortable nowadays. Tray table was smaller than my tablet. Why so small? Why has flying become more like being a sardine than some awesome way to get places faster? Greed. Plain and simple. Is not about the customer experience, it's about how much money can the airlines wring out of each customer. Wish we could go back to when it was an experience to enjoy rather than endure."
Pros: "The assistance was very helpful because my Mom is disabled. The crew n boarding was very good with the treatment for my Mom n nephew."
Pros: "It boarded and left on time."
Cons: "I think it’s ridiculous to pay $40 per bag! It took a long time for the fasten seat belt to go off so people could get up to the bathroom. One of the flight attendants had no problem getting on the overhead speaker to yell at people if they were up."
Pros: "The inexpensive price until it came to paying for my luggage. The inability to pay for luggage begore boarding."
Cons: "The baggage price was to expensive."
Pros: "All perfect"
Pros: "cheap"
Cons: "luggage was more expensive than the flight"
Pros: "I appreciate the pilot's skill - I get motion sickness very easily and this flight was very smooth. I'm grateful!"
Pros: "Cheap one way non stop options"
Cons: "Every bit of it"
Cons: "There's no "complimentary" snacks on Frontier. Which is fine, their flights are cheap and comfortable and the snacks are affordable. I also don't really appreciate having to pay for a carry on. I knew about this so made sure my bag would be considered a personal item, but I just don't know how I feel about that as a backpack may not even fit under that seat. But again, the flight was cheap. So, I don't know."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Where do I start. Ticket counter at check in is an abomination even if you did it online as they suggest. The airline groups together those needing check in and those dropping off bags which makes no sense at all. Results in a long process. Nickel and dime you until the savings from a traditional airline is non-existent. Seats are uncomfortable, crew is unpleasant. No wifi or entertainment. And baggage is always delayed. Pay the money for a regular airline."
Cons: "Seats are hard and uncomfortable. Very small drink tray and lights are not adjustable."
Cons: "5 hours late, bad seats, no service, swapped the airplane for a smaller model. Never more flying frontier. The worst airline. Finally had to wait 20 min.for the gate at arrival"
Pros: "Cheap, comfortable and friendly staff"
Cons: "Getting off the plane took forever on both legs."
Pros: "They charge you for everything nothing is complimentary . The seats are super uncomfortable. No tvs can't recline. They want you to think your saving So much because the ticket is cheap but they end up charging you for literally everything else. They charge you for everything nothing is complimentary . The seats are super uncomfortable. No tvs can't recline. They want you to think your saving So much because the ticket is cheap but they end up charging you for literally everything else."
Cons: "They charge you for everything nothing is complimentary . The seats are super uncomfortable. No tvs can't recline. They want you to think your saving So much because the ticket is cheap but they end up charging you for literally everything else. Not worth it at all!!!"
Pros: "The price was right, and the flight was on time. The crew were friendly, and the airplane was quite clean."
Cons: "The baggage restrictions were draconian, and the seats were not the most comfortable (but not awful)."
Pros: "Absolutely NOTHING"
Cons: "Totally disorganized airline from check-in to exiting the airplane. HUGE lines to check in. All lines are mixed. They have no organization or control and on top they have poor trainings people. They charge extra for every single thing including a carry on. The airplane was freezing cold. Will never fly frontier again"
Cons: "The delayed flight and the smell of puke for the entire duration of the flight after an indicidual puked before leaving the gate."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Plane was delayed two hours, then we sat on the plane for another hour all for a one hour flight. There were maintenance issues and things done wrong on the plane. There was no incentive or even snack to help the customers get through the three hours."
Cons: "They charge me $45 for a carry on never in my life i would imagine"
Pros: "Nothing right now you are asking ne how my flight is b4 i ever got on the plane."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to plane problems. Delayed 4 hours. Was not notified till boarding time. Gates were changed multiple times without notice and staff was very unprofessional wost flying experience to date."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. The only reason the get a 1 is because you have to gone them something."
Cons: "Flight was canceled 15 minutes before take off along with 200 other flights that day from frontier. We eye told to go stand in a 10 hour customer service line if we wanted help only to find out no one could really help. This was a disgraceful way for frontier to handle a mass cancellation and I will never fly with then again. It was pathetic."
Pros: "The crew was professional."
Pros: "Smooth ride, wonderfully professional, cheerful crew. Seats were comfortable, though tight. Check-in/bag drop was slow but agents were cheerful and helpful. Flight departed on time and landed early."
Cons: "Checked bag was badly damaged (bent frame) but hoping to receive satisfaction from submitted damage report tomorrow. Frontier charges for beverages, so a bottle of water or can of soda is 2.50-$3.00! Important to pay for all bags early as paying at the airport is more expensive, plus Frontier charges for carry-on bags. One free personal item only."
Pros: "It takes you from point A to point B."
Cons: "- Everything is charged. Check in - 35 Carry on -40 Seat selection- 16 Water on board- 3 (also tips) And that's one way. - Arrived 15 minutes late even after taking off on time - No reclining seats - Tray table super tiny - Unfriendly crew."
Pros: "Everything was quick and easy. Very good service and well organized."
Cons: "No movies and paid for food that came out too expensive."
Pros: "Landing safely."
Cons: "We were an hour late in boarding and no one told us why. The seats are horrible - stiff and plastic, unable to recline. Our return trip from Miami was to leave at 7 am.. We were in line to check in at 4:45 am. There was a notice stating they wouldn't start checking us in until 5:05. No one was there. Finally two young ladies sauntered over to the desk at 5:45. Frontier leaves so much to be desired."
Cons: "Frontier doesn't participate in the Known a Traveler Number program. There weren't enough agents to assist with baggage check. Flight was an hour late."
Pros: "Only positive was that it was a red eye so I slept through the in air portion."
Cons: "Delayed for 2.5 hours apparently to wait for flight attendants from another flight. Seat confusion amongst passengers. Seats are worn and terribly uncomfortable."
