Pros: "Fast and efficient"

Pros: "All aspects"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "the people were Awesome!!flight crew were very personable and easy to get along with, as well as get in touch with."
Cons: "where to start, I am not a huge overweight person. I have 26-28" shoulders and longer legs then most 5'-10" people have. That said, you should not be required to hold your arm out and hold the seat back in front of you so that you are not elbowing or shouldering the people beside you. sitting sideways on a seat I paid extra for doesn't seem like a great flight to me."

Pros: "Early boarding for Seniors"
Cons: "Limited food"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I love Delta! Always professional, efficient and polite. They disappoint on this round-trip flight. They are my go-to carrier. When I call the people whom I speak to are always very polite and efficient"
Cons: "The person next to me was a very large individual and the seats were not wide. This phenomenon had nothing to do with Delta as a carrier, however."

Pros: "The FA’s and pilot"
Cons: "I love the flight becayse it was smooth sailing and delta is always choice."

Pros: "Excellent flight crew, flight had decent leg room. Loved the inflight entertainment. Clean plane, boarding was easy."

Pros: "very nice and willing stewardesses"
Cons: "tragic little place for legs, lack of space"

Pros: "Flight attendants we were very nice and efficient. Flight was short"

Pros: "Traveling with a 4 year old isn’t always easy. Delta’s flight attendants and the captains controlling the plane were excellent! Safe flight. And the entertainment that is provided for the customers is fun and relaxing. Makes a 4.5 hour flight go by quick. Thank you delta, I will be flying with you in the future"

Cons: "Flight was delayed until it made me miss my connection"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "The bulkhead sears had no electrical outlet"

Pros: "Entertainment system great. Individual choices include recent movies. On board staff very nice"
Cons: "We had issues with baggage. Delta was supposed to transfer 4 bags to Disney for Magic Express transportation. Only 3 went. Disney tried hard to fix problem, and even gave us something to ameliorate the situation. Delta took hard line, wasn't helpful and gave nothing. It took 2 days to find bag."

Pros: "The crew were so polite and happy!"
Cons: "Those seats! UGH!"

Pros: "The gate agent and cabin crew handled passenger's misery with friendly grace and professionalism. Also, it was an old plane and so the seats, even in coach, were comfortable."
Cons: "Plane was around 45 minutes late in arriving at our Minneapolis gate. Flight was further delayed by something (unspecified) being "frozen." WORST part was that the temperature in the seating area at the gate was horribly cold. Departing passengers at a neighboring gate were bound for Fargo and sat with their parkas on and with parka hoods up. We Houston-bound had packed our coats & boots and were shivering. Then when we finally boarded the crew announced that the plane's water system was broken and so we would have no hot coffee or hot tea or hot anything. No water, also and obviously, in the restroom sink. But sani-wipes were provided in the sink basin."

Cons: "A very large, unfriendly person was taking up half of my seat."

Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Short, sweet, and landed before I knew it. Boarding was a smooth process."
Cons: "The flight crew and service on the plane was fine. My biggest complaint was at the baggage drop off at the airport, where there was quite a long line without any crew members assisting us. A five to ten minute wait is fine, but a fifteen minute wait, with only three crew members compared to the other airlines? By the time I dropped off my baggage, the other airlines were finished with their customers, and there was still quite a line behind me."

Pros: "Barcelona is a busy place. Don't forget your adapter plugs - like I did."

Pros: "I'm very satisfied."
Cons: "No comemt"

Pros: "Received sky boarding despite having a seat near the front. I like the smaller plane because there was plenty more leg room where I was (9c). A variety of free snacks were offered along with starbucks coffee, score! I wish I'd brought my ipad to take advantage of the free wi-fi and movies in-flight. Take-off & landing were very smooth despite a delay upon take-off. Made my connecting flight with time to buy lunch."

Pros: "Service was great, flight was excellent"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Easy flight. Plane and crew were fine"
Cons: "It was a short flight but no entertainment on this plane."

Pros: "Not the wor st comfort,"
Cons: "Cannot even request seats before booarding, as they try to get us to pay more. The anxiety over separate seating for couples is not worth it."

Pros: "Got us home super fast"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever had"

Cons: "Delays and ground chaos nearly caused us to miss our international connection. Gate staff unable to provide assistance with booking on connecting partner airline. Gate staff unaware of new terminal 3 to TBIT airside shuttle nearly directed us to leave domestic and requeue for international security. Will like skip Delta connectors to long haul international flights and just fly direct from SFO."

Pros: "Reassuring that the airport desk staff were keeping an eye on my connection from LAX to Columbus. Turned out it was too tight of a squeeze and I missed the connecting airplane's door closing by a few minutes, despite having RUN through LAX to get there."
Cons: "I am disappointed by the lack of communication among Delta staff when we arrived at LAX. Our turn-around was late coming into SMF, thus late leaving. It would have been very helpful if the gate staff at LAX had advised me to not bother to try to make my connection, or called the next gate to tell them we were running over there. RUNNING. Or at least done something to act like they cared. I am disappointed by the lack of initiative. I understand flights cannot wait, and I would have greatly appreciated being saved the trouble of running to a different terminal and instead taking that time to change my travel plans. They may see travelers struggling like this daily, but to each traveler, a hiccup in travel plans trip is stressful and urgent. I ask Delta staff to please consider that when they come to work. Thank you."

Pros: "Met my cousins from Portland in SLC and killed layover time"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable, service was good, movie/entertainment selection great. Logistics for flight were awesome, there was no long layover."
Cons: "The extra fee for check-in baggage."

Pros: "Don't know yet. We're still waiting to leave."
Cons: "That you're asking how it was before I left."

Pros: "Nothing to like -- didn't fly"
Cons: "Delta delayed my flight so long that I'm now traveling another day."

Pros: "Pilot has very smooth landing. Crew were nice"

Cons: "in Amsterdam any DELTA crew helm us, only KLM"

Cons: "Flight was delayed. Delta doesn't challenge anyone who attempts to pre-board. It's become somewhat of a joke. The plane was hot (717) with very poor ventilation. Was in 1st class and didn't get beverage service after boarding. Then, the plane sat on a remote taxiway another 30 minutes before takeoff, fully loaded, no A/C, and still no beverage service. Truly miserable hot and sweaty flight."

Pros: "Availability of First Class service was the only saving grace."
Cons: "Delays longer than the scheduled flight time. Entertainment options are limited in the time of such a short flight. Long distance between gates when you have been forced into a hurry by delays."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Tiny seats"

Pros: "I definitely like the variety of entertainment that was given throughout the flight."
Cons: "The flight attendant was so rude to others including myself. I'm not one to be to needy but when i was about to ask the lady if I can switch seats to the fair back where there was two empty seats she gladly let the other person but not me. She said no that if I wanted to sit back I needed to set with the other person. Our flight was from NYC to PR 5hour long and in between those hours she let a couple sit together on the other empty rows while I was feeling supper sick. Other passengers notice and had told me that they felt sorry for me. I was Embarressed. I was debating on venting on Twitter just yet and also on this review because what difference does it make. What matters the most is that we all got to our destination safely."

Pros: "the chick who worked the counter for the preboard flight counter was really REALLY nice"
Cons: "everyone on my flight was ugly"

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Plane was a bit old"

Pros: "They wouldn't budge on bumping me up even though I have 33k skymiles. They are all about money. Their seats are SOOOOOO cramped!!! They SQUEEZE people onto their planes!"

Pros: "Smooth as butter. Slept the whole way."
Cons: "Nothing could have improved it."

Cons: "After the flight was diverted due to Weather conditions I missed my connecting flight and American Airlines did a terrible job handling the changes and assisting their customers at DFW airport."

Pros: "It was fine the next leg of the trip was cancelled"

Pros: "Crew was amazing, seating too crowded"
Cons: "Consider removing seats to add more space per seat"

Pros: "flight was on time!"

Cons: "Flight attendants were NOT personal at all. Did not say hello or even greet passengers. Totally acted like they did not want to be there. Made me feel like we were nothing but a bother to even.be there. Hate all the interruptions advertising the credit card. Very annoying!"

Pros: "Seat uncomfortable. AA put me on a middle seat in my last 4 trips. I will never fly with AA."
Cons: "Better seat options."

Pros: "Staff was helpful throughout the flight. I like being kept updated on arrival time etc."

Pros: "Another customer allowed me to sit in the aisle seat rather than the assigned middle seat. That was much appreciated. And I enjoyed an movie during the flight. I like being able to choose what I want to watch and stream it on my own device."
Cons: "It was really cold on the airplane. I kept my jacket on for the entire flight. I’m typically warm natured, so it was unusually cold."

Pros: "Fast friendly service. From the security line to the friendly employees at AA. It was simple and fast."

Pros: "Got here early"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Made it safely."
Cons: "Getting my phone blown up all day about delays on my two flights. Then sitting on the tarmac in the plane while the ground crew moved equipment around. Were they surprised a plane was coming in?"

Pros: "Delayed on the runway but overall good and smooth"
Cons: "Flight service was ok"

Pros: "Booked through Kayak. Confusing because paperwork says Alaska Air but I was flying American. I understand subsidiaries but you need to be informed as the airlines are at different terminals. The flight was great. That ticketing glitch was bad."

Cons: "I need to be able to charge my phone on the airplane!"

Cons: "You better hope you don't have a short connection. Sacramento fails to allow you direct access between the A and B terminals. You have to leave and hunt for the other building through the parking garage with no guidance and then go back through security. Unacceptable!"

Pros: "Everything else was great - including rest of crew"
Cons: "plane departure was delayed after boarding because the pilot hadn't arrived from local residence or hotel to SFO in time - as a result we sat on tarmac for half hour or more before departure AND because we arrived late we sat on tarmac for awhile waiting for an arrival gate to open at DCA"

Pros: "The aircraft was newer and the flight smooth. The pilot kept us updated on potential turbulence, which was comforting No one knew if Charlotte was going to get a gust from IRMA. The flight attendants were also friendly which isn't the case on some airlines."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "First Class Flight Attendant spent more time on her phone in the jump seat than asking if we needed anything. Came by twice for a 3 hour flight. I had to go up front to ask for a beverage, and she seemed totally put out"

Cons: "No entertainment in Business/First and no USB plugs or outlets. Only difference between Business and coach is the size of the seats. The rest was the same. I expected more service, food of some sort and entertainment or connectivity. I will probably avoid flying American if I can help it unless I see that they have updated things."

Pros: "Everything was great. I didn't have any food or drink. I slept the whole way to Dallas"

Pros: "It has been a good experience! Kayak kept updating me about gates and terminals for my connecting flights..."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly"

Cons: "Having a fat person take up half your seat shouldn't be allowed. They should buy 2 tickets if they take up 2 seats"

Pros: "Quick and smooth flight."

Pros: "Roomy first class and very nice staff!"

Cons: "significant delay in boarding; return to terminal to remove a drunk. Result was missed connection at DFW to London, resulting in missed connection to Munich; resulting in loss of my checked luggage"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact we were staring at the plane for 3 hours waiting to take off and customer service and the gate staff was no help"

Pros: "Great crew!"

Cons: "Check in through website was confusing to do. Flight shows on alaska airlines sight as a united flight. I downloaded the united app, and it tells me my flight is not just through american airlines, but through another carrier, american freedom or aomething like that. Very confusing. I called someone, I think american airlines, by this time completely confused. If there are multiple carrier types, I should be able to input my flight number and my info ahould come up for me to view flight info and check in, or seat assignment. In the end I dowloaded 2 or 3 apps, a confusing phone call, and when i got to rhw intial check in I was not treated well by tsa personnel. Maybe my name triggered thw extra search or something.Anyway, that last part is unrelated but my return flight was kind of a struggle."

Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome, aircraft was clean and seats were great."

Pros: "The free movies and plug in phone charger ..."
Cons: "No problems or worries from me"

Pros: "The crew, the fabulous plane with USB ports and free movies"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have ear phones for the movies."

Cons: "2 days late"

Cons: "Didn't even get on the flight due to delay out of KSMF and I talked to the ticket lady and this has been happening very regularly due to runway construction in Phoenix. Yet the airline won't let you know or change the schedules they just take your money knowing they will likely not be able to deliver the desired product."

Cons: "They were out of snacks. A little thing but got under my skin as unprofessional."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight is really late causing missed connection"

Cons: "I paid $25 fo my luggage. I don't like it next time I will choose another company."

Pros: "Non-stop and comfort"
Cons: "No snacks at all :("

Pros: "The tv in the seat back"
Cons: "The lack of knowledge and carding of the desk staff i was so looking forward to this vacation and it ended in nightmare 2 missed connections, 3+ hours added driving for my ride home and getting home at 3:30am or later whwn I would have been home at 11:00 luggage sent on with out me on the flight all in all very disappointing"

Cons: "4 hr. Layover"

Cons: "A few crew members was rude"

Cons: "Flight delayed for 4 hours"

Cons: "Taking a flight on American Airlines when I booked one on Alaska was confusing. Not clear disclosed at the time of purchase. And hard to notice on conformation email."

Pros: "Complimentary upgrade to first class"

Pros: "While waiting to board an American pilot sat next to me and was very pleasant. I appreciated his conversation."
Cons: "Delayed getting out of Sacramento. The connection anxiety was intense. we landed as my connection was boarding. De-planing was chaotic and un informed. Seemed like we stood a good 10 mins before the doors opened...some info would have helped. Sometimes they give the gate numbers and everybody on that plane needed to go somewhere. the attendants were not helpful, the one announcer had an accent, a little hard to understand and asked that we all be kind...ok that I can do."

Cons: "Rude flight attendance werent prompt"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very kind"
Cons: "Comfort level was very low. I'm 6'0 y'all and with my seat in an upright posistion my knees were hitting the seat in front of me. My chair barely reclined which cause me to not get any sleep. These two comfort factors made it a restless uncomfortable flight."

Cons: "Despite having a purchased ticket and a seat, I showed up to the airport because I was having problems checking in online. When I arrived at the kiosk it did not print a boarding pass, instead a slip stating I had missed my check-in timeframe and head to the front. I went to the front assuming the counter clerk would resolve the issue but she advised that the only thing she could do is book me on the next flight since the flight was over booked. I was really upset about the situation since I had to be at an event at a specific time. Just make sure you check in as soon as you can. If you are having issues on your phone, call the airline or head to the airport about an hour and a half to two hours early to get your boarding pass."

Pros: "Good job"

Cons: "The connection time at the Dulles airport was ridiculous. To get from gate C to A in 20 minutes was difficult and I almost missed my flight"

Cons: "Crew attitude was poor. LA station crew was snarky and arrogant. Don’t know what it is, maybe it’s the people they have to deal with, but last three trips out of LA have been miserable."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They didnt take care of us.... aftee the airplane was delay for almost 4 hours, and told us that must of the people.were traveling.by car from sacramento to san francisco to take the other airplane didnt even gave us anothee option!!"

Pros: "Nothing, worst airline ever"
Cons: "They didnt take care of us.... aftee the airplane was delay for almost 4 hours, and told us that must of the people.were traveling.by car from sacramento to san francisco to take the other airplane didnt even gave us anothee option!!"

Cons: "I couldn’t check in for my flights ahead of time because the check in system from United and Copa airlines didn’t accept my reservation details. My first flight from Sacramento to San Francisco with United was cancelled and I was not informed until I arrived at the gate for check in. United wanted to rebook me on a flight to Los Angeles and Newark which would have been a delay of 10 hours. After security I had to go to the gate of a delayed flight to San Francisco and ask that they put me back on my original itinerary"

Pros: "On time, smooth"
Cons: "Arriving in LAX with no gate to pull up to. When will United fix this decades-long defficiency?"

Cons: "Great flight"

Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "Plan on wearing your running shoes. United is bad at giving you a lay over that is almost impossible to make. 45 minutes or less for a layover is going to give u a pretty good chance to miss your flights. We went to LAX and had to run from terminal 8 to 7. If it were long we would have missed it.."

Cons: "The fact that you have to download an app to get any kind of entertainment on United is a bit ridiculous. Plus the food offerings are poor at best."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "There was absolutlely no food. Not eve a bag of peanuts."

Pros: "Service on Lufthansa is better than most us carriers"
Cons: "The gate agent did notice I was changing carrier but did not distinguish my bag at Check in"

Pros: "On-time departure. Grouped boarding"
Cons: "Had to gate check bag, but I’ve flown this flight often enough to know that. Missed beverage service while dozing . Cart was just 2 rows past and never got a chance."

Cons: "only pretzel, no nuts as option"

Pros: "upgrade"

Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "There’s a fee for everything. Check a bag, pay a fee. Need a snack, pay a fee, watch a movie, pay a fee. What’s next? Charge a fee for toilet paper?"

Cons: "Early morning flight and the crew ran out food before they got to row 12."

Pros: "I liked that there was a price for a basic economy ticket considering I can easily fly without a carry on or checked bag. This is a great deal and worth the savings for me as a flyer."
Cons: "The process for vetting those individuals with basic economy tickets is slow, inefficient and seems to make the United employees irritated and less willing to help their guests. While I do not want to see the price go back up, I do think United needs to figure out a way to handle the check-in process for those with basic economy tickets without forcing them to stand in a line with those checking bags. it slows down the check in process for everyone, including those at normal priced fares."

Cons: "Late departing, crew not friendly, having take tiny plane to my destination...man next to me smalled sooo bad I had to turn my face into window to not get sick.not airline fault of course. Landed in Denver at one gate toward end of concourse and second plane s gate not listed anywhere. No board or person knew where. Found it was to be entire other end..pilot mumbled when talking not able understand his fast mumble."

Pros: "I liked nothing about this airline"
Cons: "I was not able to board the fist flight because i got there one hour before the flight left. I drove 2 hours to catch my second plane and because i did that my entire ticket was cancel forcing me to pay $341.00 to purchase another ticket"

Pros: "Love business class on the 757"

Cons: "Card reader for direct tv didn't work"

Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "The first class experience was very sub par we did not feel we got our money's worth"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "2 minutes past when they began to board no effort to try to help with getting on or another flight. Had plenty of time to get through security no call no assistance to find another flight NOTHING! No care to help."

Cons: "Very negative about this company they did two times cancelation, at first was problem with lights in plane and we stay over an hour, then they say that the airplain has mechanical problems and we waited about one more hour, then they returned us to airport and we waited one more hour, finally after 3 hours they start to board us but service was horrible so rod boarding people. So I hade meeting with singing contract in the morning, I was late contract cancelled and I lose my money..... The company did not any compensation. I'm so Negative, negative, about this company, not recommended will never have again"

Pros: "Late boarding, ZERO ENTERTAINMENT when you can pay the same price for American that provides television, old uncomfortable seating."
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Great service!!"
Cons: "The connection flight from Chicago to Munich was delayed by 3 hours & the flight from munich to Ancona was delayed by 6 hours."

Cons: "Long delay due a wheelchair. Really? You've never had a wheelchair on board before? Yes, this one did have batteries, but is that so unusual? Our delay was over an hour."

Pros: "On time departures and early arrivals"

Cons: "We were delayed"

Pros: "Connecting could hardly be any easier than at DEN--you get off your plane and you turn right or you turn left. No need to find a map of the airport; no need to figure out whether walking or taking the "trA'Am" would be faster; no need to catch a bus or go through security; just one (long) concourse."
Cons: "While connecting at DEN is easy, I wish there were more outlets for recharging my phone on the B concourse (like WN has on the C concourse). I wouldn't have gotten too much of a boost, though, as both of my flights were on time."

Cons: "I didn't like hearing the overhead storage will soon cost."

Cons: "WIFI was a rip-off. Paid for an hour, only got 15 minutes"

Cons: "One member of the crew was rude, advise if you dislike your job quit and find another!"

Cons: "The man who reprinted my boarding pass after I had left no e at security was extremely rude. I also found it ridiculous that I was charged to check my bag at the gate because it was about a half inch longer than the bin. Yes I understand there are size limits on carry on luggage but the plane was not even half full and the bag was clearly a standard carry on size. If anything, I should have been permitted to gate check the bag."

Pros: "The plane was clean, comfortable and seemed to have a bit more room. The staff was professional and courteous."
Cons: "The plane was 2hrs delayed but that was due to weather. The food was over priced and not good."

Cons: "Delayed, uncomfortable seats, bad landing"

Cons: "They did no seat anyone in the safety exit row because they were charging $69 to do so. This is a great hazard in case of an emergency there would be no one to open the aircraft exit door and allow people to exit. Rather, it would cause a stir and a bottleneck of people rushing in an attempt to open a door that is far away. Very disappointed."

Pros: "On time, great service"
Cons: "Plane was full. Legroom poor, as I am 6'2". But I was give an isle seat as requested , so able to stretch a little."

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "The plane was new"
Cons: "Won't let you check in in advance so they can give you a terrible seat for a 12 hour flight. They won't even let you check in from the point of departure if it's with one of their partners. They also will do everything in their power to not give award miles to pattern airline clubs. It doesn't matter if you give them your United number and even register your United number with the flight for United. They will apply it to the Lufthansa Club and pretend it was just in the state and never actually give you the miles no matter how many times you try. This is not from one experience with Lufthansa / Austrian. I've had this experience many times with every flight I take with these terrible Airlines. I would never fly lifthansa unless it's at least $200 cheaper than any of their competitors."

Pros: "Routine"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I was glad to see that the security check line was moving quickly. Sacramento is usually my go to airport when in northern California because it's so much easier to get to where you need to in a timely fashion too."

Pros: "that they warned me the plane was extra small and checked my carry-on at the gate for free."
Cons: "that they didn't really advertise how small of a plane I would be flying. I guess you're supposed to research every plane before purchasing tickets now."

Pros: "Nothing at all Delta is very reliable the people that work for Delta are very nice the people that work for United have a lot to learn they need training learn how to talk to passengers I was called a third-grader just because I didn't know where my seat was very irritating"
Cons: "Nothing whatsoever I would never fly United ever again not when there's Delta Delta is very friendly United is not friendly at all the people are very rude it seems like they don't want to mess with nobody this is a very big mess"

Cons: "we were an hour late"

Pros: "The crew was nice, boarding was easy and I had a decent seating on the plane. It was on time"
Cons: "I did not like being squeezed like a sardine into a narrow, uncomfortable seat. Quit adding rows and making leg room smaller and elbow room smaller so the airline can make another dollar."

Pros: "Everything went well; great service on both flights"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Easy booking. Good flight. Amazing price"
Cons: "Everything was really pleasant."

Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Coming home"

Pros: "We missed the flight due to parking difficulty We came to the airport at 1:10 pm and flight supposed to leave to Ontario at 1:30 pm I requested a flight change or refund But neither refused Please help us to get refund or credit for the next flight Sudath Edirisuriya 916-751-8219"
Cons: "Please provide help to us"

Cons: "Seats don’t lean back"

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "had to find new flights all together. Flight to Sacramento California was canceled and I got notifications that the return flight could possibly be canceled. Then had to fight for refund for flights."

Pros: "The first flight was smooth"
Cons: "Whatever it takes to not have a 5 1/2 hour layover with an extra hour added on. Seats were terrible. Super crowded in the seat. Plane also had dirty napkin in fold up tray and in the back pockets"

Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Seats are so hard!!"

Pros: "Delayed 2 hours. Arrived at Houston and another 40 mins to get to the gate. I lost my connecting flight to Guatemala 7:42pm"

Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Seats don't recline, so a bit uncomfortable."

Pros: "I have never ridden a more terrible airline in my life."
Cons: "Not a 4+ hour delay. Or charging you for literally every possible thing."

Cons: "Another airline...could of flown another airline with no baggage charge had movie WiFi...better food free soda"

Cons: "No WiFi, no reclining seats, way too hot, just an all around poor flight. This was our first experience with Frontier. Probably a great option for college students."

Pros: "Quick flight. Decent seat"
Cons: "I paid almost $80 for a carryon and most of the other guests did not get questioned or charged. That price is ridiculous and I’m not sure I’ll choose Frontier ever again"

Pros: "The crew was spectacular"
Cons: "The plane was 1hr and 1/2 late with no explanation. The chairs did not recline at all Over $300 in baggage fees 0 entertainment"

Pros: "I mistakenly thought flight was am instead of pm. To cancel half my flight was costly so I just did not make flight but purchased another flight from another airlines. While I cannot blame anyone but myself, I did not find Frontier customer service understanding or accomodating- not good p.r."

Pros: "Great flight attendants. Outstanding customer service. Fast boarding I was not confused one bit."

Cons: "Late again"

Pros: "Good. No complaints"
Cons: "Good no complaints"

Pros: "Flight was early"
Cons: "Because of some sort of error, 10-15 people were issued seats that didn’t exist. Plane had only 31 rows of seats but I was issued 37a. Is Frontier trying to beat Spirit for the worst airline award???"

Pros: "The flight was very inexpensive"
Cons: "You have to pay extra for carryon luggage, snack or beverage. No entertainment. Very tiny non-padded seats."

Cons: "Poor customer service"

Cons: "Worst ever other than the crew. Never again"

Pros: "Flight was suppose to leave at 9:25 am. It was delayed then we were boarded then unboarded because plane problem was not fixed. Given $10 food voucher that doesn’t cover a airport meal. Then finally at 4:45 we boarded again. Finally made it back to Bismarck @ 6:45 CT. Til I picked up my kids and got home (hr drive) it was 9:30 pm. Not impressed. Have been hearing that frontier has a lot of plane issues!"

Cons: "While trying to arrange a flight home from college for my son after the tragedy here in Las Vegas, I accidently clicked the wrong flight. I called immediately and they said sorry there is nothing they could do. Zero customer service. I hope they enjoy the money for the flight that wasn't able to be used."

Cons: "My flight to return to Philadelphia on Saturday 9/9 was canceled on Thursday with no notification from Frontier. I found out on Friday while trying to do an early check in! My wife and I went to Tampa Airport trying to find any flight out due Hurricane Irma making landfall on Saturday. Frontier was the only airline closed!!!! Every other airline was open trying to get out as many passengers as they could!"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "I arrived 20 mins before departure and from front desk agents would not issue a boarding pass because they said they were already boarding and I wouldn't make it to the gate. Their only solution given to me was to fly to Denver the next day for a layover and fly out to my final destination the next day after that. I was encouraged to find another airline too."

Cons: "Watch out for hidden fees and sly attempts to fool customers into confirming acceptance of their credit card while patron is only trying to confirm check-in details."

Cons: "No free snacks"

Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Seats keep getting smaller and less leg room."

Pros: "It was a quick flight."

Cons: "There were several delays and gate changes and no one gave us a reason or an explanation. We were just shuffled around the airport. Frustrating!!!!"

Pros: "Well the flight itself was good overall. Seats were tight but i imagine all flights like that."
Cons: "Wellbi hated all the fees. For a checked bag, 35 dollars, to select your own seat 11-25 dollars, carry on 40 dollars, and nothing really special about the flight. Thought i was flying sheaper but i spent as much in bag fees as i did with the actual ticket price."

Pros: "I did not like the fact that I had to pay for a seat on the plane for I thought that was already in the payment when I purchased the flight and I never knew I had to pay for a carry on bag for I have flown with frontier once before, I guess time comes about a change. Oh yeah, there was no SNACKS, no peanuts or crackers provided, just water etc."
Cons: "The flight was good and the landing was smooth"

Cons: "Delayed 2 plus hours Upon arrival into sfo over 1 hour and 30 mins to get bags"

Pros: "I liked getting home"
Cons: "The flight was delayed bc of issues with the crew which just makes the airline seem unorganized. The tables for the seats are not even big enough for a child. Why shouldn't we at least get a free tea or soda with our flight. That's ridiculous."

Pros: "I am sitting at the gate 4 hours delayed"
Cons: "Nothing what a disaster"

Pros: "The crew was awesome. They were very understanding and flexible to sitting arrangements as long as you were within your zone."
Cons: "Didn't like the idea of having to pay for a carryon. Really don't like the idea of having to pay to sit by my husband. I would definitely never fly again unless I'm traveling alone for a one day trip. This airline only seems to cater to the business traveler, not leisure."

Pros: "Nothing abt the flight"

Pros: "Price."
Cons: "We were supposed to depart at 11:59pm but apparently theyu didn't have a crew to finish the ground work and load all the bags so we had to wait. Also, some woman got thrown off the plane. Crew was very rude. Seats are the most uncomfortable."

Pros: "I liked the timeliness of the boarding process."
Cons: "I did not like the attitude of the one of the male flight attendants and found that he was unprofessional. The seats were the most uncomfortable seats I've had to sit in during a flight. The airline doesn't offer free complimentary drinks and they still don't offer a TSA precheck option for their flights."

Pros: "Terrific crew. Working for tips makes them better."
Cons: "Hour delay. No advance notice."

Pros: "Check in process was easy and agent very accommodating."
Cons: "Already mentioned above"

Pros: "Crew was courteous, helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Flight was late. My seat back would not adjust."

Cons: "Both the outbound and return flights were late. Slowest baggage claim in the industry. Will never use this airline again."

Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Frontier has numerous fees, including fee for seat assignment, fee to "carry on" bag, charges for coffee and soda, etc. we will never fly that airline again. Seat room is smallest of any plane we've been on (and that's saying quite a bit)."

Pros: "Fast"
Cons: "The whole plane smelled like diapers it was nasty"

Cons: "Very poor I paid for emergency exit seats an extra fee and they let anybody sit there that didn't pay I feel ripped off"

Cons: "The crew spent their time trying to sell the credit card instead of offering a drink of water. I fly for work and vacations, and will try to avoid Frontier if at all possible. Very sad to see the old Frontier go away and the new Frontier lose their customer focus."

Cons: "I have one more flight booked with your airlines in Sept. After that flight, I will probably not choose Frontier again."

Pros: "Cheap if you have baggage."
Cons: "Cheap. No included snacks or drinks. No real tray table. Seats don't recline. Have to pay for all bags."

Pros: "Flight crew were nice."
Cons: "Seats are so uncomfortable in both airplanes I went on, there's no food given to you noy even complimentary peanuts or water . No entertainment at all? Did I mention that the seats were horrible and my back hurts now I'm never flying with Them again !"

Cons: "That the plane was three hours late and no one would explain why, almost as if it were a secret for some reason. Then there was gate confusion which did not help at all. Seemed very disorganized. No real issues with the flight once we got on. Was bumpy, but not pilots control. Also, charging g for water is I deed uncalled for. What would happen if circumstances called for water for someone who was I'll and they had no way to pay?"
