Pros: "Flight arrived early Not full flight, more comfortable that way Boarding moved quickly, adequate overhead space Plane exit moved quickly"
Cons: "Flight attendant was rude as I switched into an empty seat following her count. Called out my move on front of other passengers with negative tone, but did not make me move, so OK overall. Without sale of open seat, the only way for Alaska to capitalize on that seat is to allow someone else to have a more positive flight experience with more personal space, so honestly she shouldn't have been rude. Tomato juice was hot from being outside, normally cool even without ice. Snack was fine, but minimal and snack boxes not available on short flight, so less stars for that. Entertainment nonexistent - film/tv access not available in flight without something in mobile device that was not explained, no plugs for charging."

Cons: "zero food choices and minimal drink service for an over 3 hour flight. attendants pften appear unprofessionally attired,as in they are in t-shirts."

Pros: "The crew was great and kept down the noise level. This is the first time I have been able to sleep on an over-night flight. We also arrived early and our luggage was ready within the 20 mins. they say."

Pros: "Our pilot and crew were awesome! It was the second time my granddaughter had flown and she couldn't have had a better experience. She commented how nice everyone was on the flight. The pilot was informative and had a great sense of humor. I'm 67 and this particular flight was the best I've ever been on. Thank you, Alaska Airlines! You are my go-to airlines!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing."

Cons: "When we got to the gate 3 hours early, we ordered a wheel chair for my wine to board the plane as soon as the first gate personnel arrived. At boarding time the clueless person who brought the wheel chair for us gave it to a 20 something man with a foot in a cast and crutches while my 71 year old wife had to wait until another wheelchair could be brought. The irony is that two wheelchairs were there until just. Edited boarding time and both were taken away."

Cons: "Couldn't find any way to input my TSA Pre-Check number so ended up standing in the long line... For that reason alone, I won't buy through Kayak again"

Cons: "3 hour delay. No internet on flight working. Little to no food available."

Pros: "If you have a phone, tablet or laptop, you can watch a bunch of movies for free! No charge whatsoever. I had my laptop and was able to watch two movies and a few TV shows. I also sat in an exit row and had a LOT of leg room. I was really happy."

Pros: "The staff was really friendly, easy boarding, great fast baggage claim. overall great!"

Pros: "After traveling on United earlier this week and having a horrific experience, Alaska airlines was the complete opposite.

Pros: "Flight ahead of schedule, staff pleasant, and good price."
Cons: "I pre confirmed my flight online & checked in, along with a friend. I didn't realize I had to reconfirm when I got to the airport again, since my friend already knew the gate number. I had my mobile boarding pass on my iPhone, and got to my departure gate. When it got close to boarding time, my email boarding pass disappeared! Luckily I was able to get a paper boarding pass from the boarding desk. If I had not looked previously on my phone-I would have been delayed. Learning lesson on my part. Check in at airport too!"

Pros: "It was a little confusing beacause your brochure said I would have free Wifi so I didn't rent your tablets. A half hour later I realized the wifi doesn't actually work, so I missed out on renting your tablets to watch something. I think there should be a less confusing system. This is more of an Alaska Airlines gripe though."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Delayed take off and arrival"

Pros: "having a seat I got to pick."

Pros: "SAme"
Cons: "Same"

Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather that was never bad but on the potential of bad weather. Had to scramble so my 18 year old son was not stranded overnight in a strange place and Delta does not help. Only rebooked a flight itinerary for the next day for a 4 hour flight with connections on a 1 hour direct flight. Spent an hour on line to figure out what to do. #neverdelta"

Pros: "Are usually fly international, and I really enjoy it. Flying domestic inside the US is bad because you never know when you will get flight delays, like we got. It wasn’t the fault of Delta, but it sucked."
Cons: "Small seeds, no food, the flight delay"

Pros: "crew was nice and pilot was informative."
Cons: "1. flight was delayed twice, which meant my arrive was delayed in Cincinnati. 2. boarding was a nightmare. After 2 delays, I was crammed into zone 4. I dont fly as often, the seats space seems to be getting smaller. 5. I sat next an overweight person. I didn't like my personal space violated. 6. The flight offer movies, I slept. Yet kept getting elbowed by this overweight neighbor. 7. I am a single, independent person. I prefer to sit near the front. First on and settled and 1st off and gone!"

Pros: "flight attendants were great."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy."

Pros: "Nothing I can think of right away"
Cons: "Late arrival and late departure. Poor service in having my luggage be connected to my flight. Was under the impression that they would do that after I had called the day prior and once I got to airport they didn't do so"

Pros: "Staff were all polite"
Cons: "The least amount of legroom I've ever had. The most cramped I've ever been and I'm 5'2 and fly a lot. Also for a 5 hour flight, I should not have been as uncomfortable as I was. There's less cushion than before."

Pros: "Service. Sweet attendant."

Pros: "The crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "My second plane had sooo much moisture coming from the cooling system it looked like the passengers were getting gased and I kept getting wet from water condensation falling on me in a window seat as I tried to sleep from having such an early flight to begin with only to be told it's delayed 3 hrs without explanation."

Cons: "No free beer :)"

Pros: "We were given snacks and sandwiches for the delay."
Cons: "Paid for an upgrade but the seat was not what I had asked for. The agent said I would get a refund but I was not clear on how that works. Our plane experienced a mechanical issue. We were told after we boarded. Had to wait 1 1/2 hours in a stuffy hot plane. The bathrooms were very dirty and stinky. The bathroom door did not close properly. We finally deplaned and waited for a new plane. Got to Kona at 2:00am. The air temp was warm the entire flight. Had to endure a grumpy crew. Not the best flying experience. I know you can do better. Maybe look at how Hawaiian airlines does it and you might get some inspiration on how to improve."

Cons: "When I arrived in Atlanta, I asked an attendant at the Atlanta airport "how do I find gate B06?. He was very indignant with me. The Atlanta airport is very large, and confusing. I think that particular man should have been more considerate and helpful."

Cons: "Aircraft was out of the 1970's. No USB or entertainment. Wi-fi was bust on the plane. Will avoid American next time when booking."

Pros: "By luck, I had a seat between myself and the other person in my row. It would have been tight, otherwise. Crew was friendly and polite."

Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable."

Cons: "The crew looked very bored."

Pros: "Staff at SAN was good helpful. Check in was seemless."
Cons: "Wishing that they would serve something to drink — even if I would have to pay for it. Flight attendant gave me wrong directions and I left for another terminal while my carry on luggage (which had to be checked) was still at the gate. I had to wait until it arrived at baggage claim."

Pros: "Take-off and landing were smooth."
Cons: "Was not able to track the progress of the flight on the monitors No entertainment Seats do not provide comfortable leg room"

Pros: "The friendly and attentive flight staff."

Cons: "Poor customer service"

Pros: "AA put us in a hotel and gave $12 (per person) food voucher for missed connection due to delay for maintenance."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost for 2.5 hrs in PHX airport, due to mix-up by service rep at customer service. AA attendant at gate at CLT was extremely rude and unprofessional when I accuse Left my boarding passes in seat pocket. Would not summon someone to retrieve it. Made me wait until entire plane was disembarked and cleaned, and made me wait some more after. She was super snarky, made rude comments, and almost made my family miss our connection to EWN. I will never, ever, fly AA again. Worst customer service and tons of issues with maintenance, luggage handling, and delays."

Pros: "On time departures and arrivals. This domestic first leg of the flight had fairly good leg room and seat width."

Pros: "I initially booked my flight via Kayak for a cheap no hassle price"
Cons: "My initial booking was with Iberia Airlines and a few days prior to my Flight was switched over to American Airlines. Had i known I would be flying with AA, I would have opted for a more expensive option as I've a great disdain for AA. My flight from JFK was not the model aircraft I was promised and thus did not have ac chargers or Wifi in the plane. In my opinion, I was bait and switched via Kayak"

Cons: "Taking 2 shuttle buses to transfer from AA to PAL."

Pros: "we had all the necessary conditions for work, rest, sleep and eating. The level of service has increased"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Getting off of that plane."
Cons: "I understand delays happen and are sometimes out of your control. However, customer service is something that you can, should, and must control. I witnessed a lack of self control of the American employees (including a Supervisor) and every point of my trip w/your customers. I was embarrassed for the American executive team."

Pros: "Polite, friendly helpful staff. Plane left on time."
Cons: "There were no window or aisle seats available for free, so I had to pay for the extra cost seats."

Pros: "The flight schedule"
Cons: "The hardens of the seats. Rather seat on the floor"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Had to cancel my flight and call the company. Was talking to a computer for 30 min before I finally talked to someone. It cost me in fees to basically cancel my flight which ended up being just as much as my entire flight ticket. Got refunded a total of $12 to use towards my next flight. Never flying or booking a flight with American Airlines at all. Kayak couldn't even help with accommodations. Southwest is the only company that will actually hold those credits for you. Everywhere else is just trying to scam you."

Pros: "Seats are the most uncomfortable seats ever"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The customer service and the lack of assistance from the airline ground staff was horrible ."

Pros: "once I made it on it was smooth"
Cons: "plane in cos had to refuel so we were 20 late leaving and I bearly made it to next flight in dallas they were closing doors, young people ran but im old so could not move as fast, it was a challenge to not miss flight"

Pros: "Seats reclined, beverage service."
Cons: "Wish movie would have been a better movie, not animated."

Pros: "Overall, I'm pleased with BA."
Cons: "This flight didn't have the individual TV screens."

Pros: "Flight was pretty much what you'd expect, pretty basic"
Cons: "For a 5 hour flight I woulda been nice to have more than just two cookies for a snack. Luckily I brought me own. Also there's no entertainment except for 1 magazine, so again, if you're flying American you better supply yourself with whatever you'll want before boarding"

Pros: "At 6' 2" I was surprised that, with the seat in front of me not reclined (and fortunately no one ever did), my knees actually had a bit of room and were not pressed into the seat back in front of me. That and the flight schedule went smoothly - everything was on time."
Cons: "Maybe a couple of other sandwich options might have gotten me to pay for one."

Cons: "Fat ads sitting next to me should have purchased 2 seats"

Pros: "Kayak did not refund or have an option to exchange my ticket for a later time in the year."
Cons: "My tickets were 415.00 and I wanted to change the dates and couldn't since I bought from a third party I had to pay an extra 400."

Pros: "The staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "There was a ton of turbulence"

Cons: "You need to add a not applicable choice to your list. I did not eat the snacks offered on the flight nor was there any entertainment that I could find."

Cons: "Flight was extremely cold and no blankets. Flight attendant was extremely rude when politely asked for one."

Pros: "every flight was on time and left promptly. hostesses were courteous and helpful"

Pros: "friendly crew members/ great intertainment"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food. Cold breakfast sandwich. Really? Cold bacon and egg."

Cons: "This flight was good, but when I fly in July I pay extra for protection and extra for better seat. Flight was canceled and they put me on different plane, which make my day in San Diego very difficult, because I miss my meeting, I didn't get better seat ither,instead I got seat in front of toilet and for 3 hours have to listen door bunging and terrible smell. I never been compensate for canceling flight or extra seat price.Nobody care even apologize. I hope that was just unforchened incident and I still like your company and still flying with AA, but I was really disappointed. Sincerely Vera Vasiley."

Pros: "I arrived at Dusseldorf"
Cons: "First flight was delayed 5:30 hours, so I was moved to different flights because I would not have made my connections but those flights were uncomfortable and had bad service and the people working didnt even so much as offer me complimentary peanuts"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Wait 4 hours for a delay flight"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Uncomfortable. No entertainment."

Cons: "Waiting for copilot while sitting in a small warm plane for over 45 minutes...."

Pros: "The flight was on time and boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "Didn't eat or watch the movie. There needs to be an n/a rating available for this review."

Pros: "Middle seat on a five hour flight + no Tv on the plane made for quite the uncomfortable experience."

Cons: "Flight was inexplicably late crew was lazy and mumbled directions seats were uncomfortable and cramped"

Pros: "Although my flight was delayed and I had to take 2 connecting flights to get home my baggage also made it home with me."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The flight was so loud, it was like driving down the highway with the windows down. AA automated messaging services called me to update me regarding my itinerary change when my 1st flight was delayed and provided wrong information which lead me to attempt to board an incorrect flight causing confusion and frustration."

Cons: "Boarding the plane and then the crew decides more gas is needed after they've been sitting in the cockpit long before we boarded. Couldn't they have realized that before everyone boarded and thus make everyone late"

Pros: "Nice flight and great service"

Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, even in first class. Food a joke for a 4 hour class. No pillows, even in first class."

Pros: "Friendly helpful flight crew"
Cons: "Entertainment wasn’t working well at all"

Pros: "Crew always smiled"

Pros: "Seating choice options could be improved."

Pros: "Lot of leg room!"
Cons: "WiFi for Entertainment system was spotty, freezing very often. Unfortunately this issue has become more common in United flights lately."

Pros: "Comfortable and roomy seats."
Cons: "The crew made me switch aisle seats (I specifically chose my spot) because the couple next to me had two babies on their laps. They told me to sit in the aisle seat which would then be in between the couple. So I had people reaching over me and crying babies were on both sides of me."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival, smooth ride"
Cons: "Again 30 minute delay to get internet working. At least this time they communicated the issue."

Pros: "Comfort of first class. Even on a short trip like this."
Cons: "I am a bit tired of a lazy, lackadaisical attitude by ground crew and pilots. Nobody is showing interest in making the system work better by hustling. They take their time, almost slothlike, with an air of arrogance that tells me that they don’t respect me. It appears in how long it takes to pull a plane in, how long it takes to get bags off, and how long it takes for bags to hit the baggage claim."

Pros: "To many delays"
Cons: "To many delays"

Cons: "Cost $69 to get adequate leg room! Too much!"

Cons: "The fact that no one could connect to the internet, and the crew insisted that it was in fact on."

Pros: "The people seated to the left and right of me."
Cons: "United 'nickel and dimes' you for everything. Baggage, but the worst is the space between rows. Just horribly uncomfortable. Money hungry corporate greed. $7.99 for the equivalent of an Egg McMuffin. You think the big airlines would learn from Southwest airlines. I'll avoid United as much as I can in the future."

Pros: "The crew was all very polite, attentive and helpful."

Pros: "San Diego airport had a curfew of 11:30. The flight was delayed 30 minutes and the crew did a great job of boarding with a purpose to expedite the process and have us ready to take off by curfew."
Cons: "The flight was 30 minutes late in a city with a curfew so we ran the chance of not being able to take off that night."

Pros: "Leg room was good and on time."
Cons: "For a 51/2 hr flight they only offered a beverage twice in a these litTle 4 is cups!! The united app was not working and the internet was sporadic which lent to a long long flight with no movies. Overall not impressed."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "12 hours delayed because they didn't start the safety check until just before departure despite the fact that the plane had been on the ground for 2 hours. We missed curfew and had to fly out the next day. The seats were TINY and uncomfortable. Despite an almost empty flight, we weren't allowed to move to more spacious seats."

Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Long time in air..."

Cons: "The whole wifi entertainment system unites uses won't work on newer android versions!"

Pros: "I lost my wallet on the plane to San dieago. A very nice honest family turned it over to the crew. The baggage claim customer service agent ran back to the plane to retrieve it for me. It had everything I needed, my ID cash for my trip. I'm thankful for the honest people still in this world! Many thanks to the family and crew and uninteds customer service!!! A+++++"

Pros: "Quick flight, good service"
Cons: "Delay on return flight."

Cons: "Delays no good..."

Pros: "Crew were nice and flight was on time."
Cons: "I didn't know i needed an app before i will be able to enjoy entertainment on board, so i had to pay for internet to be able to download the app to be able to watch movie. PA system wasn't gud."

Cons: "No space, outdated non-working air, extremely hot and stuffy, VERY dry air, no screens"

Pros: "How nice the crew was"
Cons: "That I was in the middle and lost my phone at the airport"

Pros: "My snack box"
Cons: "I purchased wifi for the flight to stream entertainment. Plugged my Ipad into the charger only to realize the charger was broken. So within an hour I was unable to use the wifi I paid 16ish dollars to use the whole flight bc they advertised "outlets in every chair" wasn't working."

Pros: "They fixed some mechanical maintenance issue and did not have to make us switch planes, so I didn't mind the wait; just wished the AC would have been working a little better. Entire flight was smooth all the way back in, though at 6'1" I found the seats a bit cramped, the crew did a great job making sure people were taken care of - it wasn't their fault, and I'd prefer they take their time so we actually make it where we need to go."
Cons: "The wifi did not work at all for my girlfriend, even after paying the $18 and trying for the entire 4hr flight, the weak signal dropped out continuously. She followed up with customer service about the issue, but the website has yet to process her refund for it; it keeps crashing. I don't see how you DON'T offer free, and functional WiFi on a 4hr flight in 2016 - I have it at my dealership for customers waiting on a 45 min oil change."

Pros: "There was plenty of room because the flight was less than half full. There was a very friendly and helpful female flight attendant with an Asian ethnic background."
Cons: "It was impossible to check in online because I have a U.S. Green Card. Something should be done to fix this. It shouldn't be too difficult. There was a gray-haired male flight attendant who was extremely negative and unfriendly. Perhaps (I hope) he was really a security guard. But if he is going to serve people, he has to understand the concept of service."

Cons: "Noting"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Wasn't offered a snack. Was in the BR whe they were handed out."

Pros: "Strooperwaffles....yum!"
Cons: "The seats are so tiny!"

Pros: "Both flights were great! They left on time, the one from San Diego left earlier than scheduled. Kayak was most informative with flight info and upon arrival, indicating the bagage claim number via email!"
Cons: "N.A. Everything was great."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and the pilot kept us informed at all times. For example, we got to Dayton early and we sat on the Tarmac for about five minutes as there was another plane there. That was no problem. But, after plane left we sat there until it was time for us to arrive before ground crew came out. Then, we waited 20 minutes for our baggage. That was not your fault. That was the fault of the airport as it has happened to me before. The pilot was very apologetic and kept us informed. I appreciated that very much."
Cons: "I was so excited because there were TV's on each seat, but I could not use because the place where I had to plug in for sound was broken. That was a disappointment."

Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn't like everything. All my United flight were delayed, the international was cancelled after waiting for 7 hours of delays."

Pros: "My other passengers in First Class. Your crew was also very kind and well mannered."
Cons: "I spent over 150 for an upgrade for a red eye for a flight I already spent over 500. Your crew lacked attention in service and one specific crew member (male) woke me up twice due to the loudness of his voice. Disappointed in the quality for the amount spent."

Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Seats seemed cramped, drinks took forever to get. Plane seemed a little worn out and dingy."

Pros: "New aircraft, great crew. Arrived a tad early. Easy boarding a deplaning. Ground staff very professional."
Cons: "Paid extra for economy plus. It's still pretty tight on legroom. The new seats have *very little* storage space for personal items like a bottle of water, tablet computer, book, etc. Really, it's insufficient. Blankets too small and thin to compensate for cold cabin temps."

Pros: "Seats were comfy, and the snack (caramel-filled waffle cookie) was a nice little treat."
Cons: "I didn't know to download the United entertainment app in advance. Once I found out at boarding, it was too late."

Pros: "Entertainment options were great, and the food was decent."
Cons: "The seat were really uncomfortable."

Pros: "Curtesy of staff"
Cons: "No seat reclining at all. Feeling very stiff by the end of the fight."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "My bags were tagged to Dakar but my final destination was Conakry. I was told my United that South African airlines doesn't have a "luggage contract" with ASky so my bags could not be tagged to my final destination. This is bizarre because Kayak didn't inform me of this when I bought my ticket otherwise I would never have bought that flight."

Cons: "Very rude crew."

Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was pleasant and professional."
Cons: "Snack and drink selection was poor."

Cons: "My 3rd old was very hungry and I reached out to cabin staff for any kind of food for purchase, they turned me down saying I need to wait for another hour till the dinner time. Did not provide any help there."

Pros: "The plane was exceptionally nice,"
Cons: "Although I purchased my ticket more than four months prior, due to some complication or miscommunication between SAS and US Air, my seat had been filled and someone had to be "bought off the plane" with a voucher and better seat. If someone wouldn't have taken the offer, I would have missed all of my flight waiting on a new connection."

Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times due to the maintenance issues with the fuel tanks. Flight ended up being delayed an 1 plus."

Pros: "I liked that it got me to my destination"
Cons: "No entertainment, really uncomfortable, arm rest don't go up, planes are not cleaned from previous passengers, flight attendants hardly smile and don't interact as much as other airlines, delayed flights every time I fly with United."

Cons: "The seats were cramped. Many people carried on extra bags as the price per bag checked was $25.00 a bag -- so there was a lot of bags carried on and delayed the process."

Cons: "Small glasses of water were offered very infrequently. Needed much much more"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "We didn't have any headphones for the seat back entertainment; attendant went down one isle handing them out, but not ours (not sure why were were left out, had to flag someone down to get some)."

Cons: "Explanation on why it took so long to board was a vage"

Pros: "I was comfortable. I entered and exited the plane very fast."

Pros: "Crew was super pleasant and chipper. Passengers seemed to have a handle on how to board in a timely manner."
Cons: "Management could schedule time for maintenance software updates so as not to affect departure time. We were 20 minutes delayed."

Pros: "The crew/pilot was excellent he got us an hour prior to schedule, however, the stewardess did not have good training to lay down rules i.e. going bathroom. They can be stricted but nice."
Cons: "Food not snacks should be an option to purchase."

Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Was late"

Pros: "The ticket price"
Cons: "No free in flight beverage or water. No WiFi. Barely any leg room and no reclining seats."

Cons: "The change of flights. Had to stay in airport overnight!"

Cons: "Paying $3.00 for a $.50 soda, paying for carry on bag. very uncomfortable seats, no entertainment at all for such a long flight. need I go on?"

Pros: "It gets you from point A to point B."
Cons: "By the time you add a bag, you can fly another airline. And if you're over 6', it's not worth it. I'm 6'4", and my knees touched the seat in front of me for the whole flight. Seats don't recline, so I couldn't adjust at all."

Pros: "Good flight. Accommodating. Will fly again. Cheap flights"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Why should anyone want to book a flight only to find out that the ticket price doesnt include a seat................. for a seat there's an additional charge. And then a charge for a carry on bag of $40. Your airline is ridiculous!"

Pros: "I'm 6'3" and simply cannot get comfortable in a plane seat."

Cons: "First of I got double charged for my bags second flight delayed for no reason n seats are extremely uncomfortable we arrived n we stuck in the airport for 30 mins no reason bags took an entire hr so I just left my bag"

Pros: "Plane made it to Denver"
Cons: "Seats were the most uncomfortable of any I have ever sat in. Picking a seat so my family could stay together cost 13 bucks a person and that was annoying. And you charge for carry-on, hence the title regarding the cheapness of frontier. There are other airlines that don't try and squeeze money out of you the way Frontier does. Probably will fly another airline next time."

Pros: "Non Stop and time of departure"
Cons: "The seats were terrible. They were made of hard plastic, smashed together and extremely uncomfortable. The tray "table" measured 4"x8". Never again will I ride on Frontier. I'll drive or not go if Frontier is my only option to fly."

Pros: "The crew was awesome"
Cons: "Tray table size"

Cons: "Had to pay even for my carry on, in the end the flight wasnt as cheap as i thought"

Pros: "The planes did seem a bit newer than some of the planes with other airlines."
Cons: "The fact that Frontier charges for both checked luggage and carry-on luggage is enough to make me not want to use this airline again in the future. The food and drink options on the plane are also ridiculously overpriced. If Frontier were to price their in-flight food and drinks they would make a lot more money as budget minded people like myself would actually buy an item or two as opposed to refusing to buy anything at all. Overpricing food and drink items and charging for checked and carry-on luggage also has the added negative effect of me never wanting to use this airline again in the future. I will also actively dissuade friends and family from using Frontier."

Pros: "Seats were dirty smelly floor was gross panels loose"
Cons: "Nothing was up to the mark"

Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Frontier is all around archaic in a modern world."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Awful customer service across the board. I have flown Spirit regularly, so I am familiar with the concept of the low price airline, but this is far worse than anything I have ever experienced with Spirit."

Cons: "The seats don't recline and a fairly uncomfortable. The baggage charges are too much, one charge for checked and another for a small carry on."

Pros: "The flight was cheap"
Cons: "Flight delayed 3 hours due to technical difficulties. Was forces to pay to check my carry-on because it was considered a "duffle bag". Screaming children the entire return flight not even seated. Cramped quarters. Terrible"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "They cancelled my flight. Soonest Frontier flight they could re-book me on was EIGHT DAYS LATER. They have no agreements with other airlines to book cancelled passengers with. They would NOT pay any hotel expenses. It was left to me to find alternate transportation home as well as book a hotel room for the night and pay for it. This was the absolute worst airline I have ever flown on in all my years of air travel. Did I mention that they even charge for the in-flight soft drink? Oh yeah, The seats don't recline, none of them."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seating because the seats don't recline and the leg space was basically non existent. First experience on Frontier and unless they make changes for some kind of comfort then this is definitely our last!"

Pros: "Easy check-in & baggage drop"
Cons: "Seats were stiff and did not recline No neck support for snoozing ..."

Cons: "The seats didn't recline"

Pros: "There's nothing bad about Frontier's service. Flights were on time, staff was courteous."
Cons: "BUT, they don't honor Global Entry or TSA Pre-Check, which is ridiculous! The ticketing agent told me "it's not in the budget." Had I known this ahead of time I wouldn't have purchased a ticket from Frontier. The security lines were incredibly long in Denver and this added a good 30 minutes to my passage through the airport."

Pros: "I didn't have to pay extra for my seat with extra leg room"
Cons: "There was confusion about my seat"

Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Had to pay for seating"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Small seating"

Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable and cannot recline. I was unaware while booking that they would charge for the carry-on. What is worst is that carry-on was more expensive than checking in a bag. I now understand that it is a budget airline, however, once you include the fee for the carry-on/check-in bag it is no longer a good price for the flight."

Pros: "Cheap cheap cheap flights even with paying for a checked bag our total round trip for 2 people was less than $160. We knew frontier was a bare bones plane ride. We had no issues with everything. The seats were a little uncomfortable and the trays were about the size of a check book but other than that the flight was fine."

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: "I attempted to contact the airline for over 12 hours and they had no customer support during winter storm flight cancellation. I guess you get what you pay for, so i would expect zero fare for future flights to go along with zero assistance from the airline."

Cons: "I'm not happy that I wasn't notified in advance that there would be an added $40 per bag. When flying with other airlines usually one bag and carry on is included in the price. I am not happy that upon arival I was notified my one bag would be an extra $40. That should have been discussed before."

Pros: "The flights were on time and bordered quickly"
Cons: "Very little leg room and seats don't recline. Everything is very basic, no comfort features. The fee for a just a carry on item was surprisingly expensive!"

Pros: "That we flew."
Cons: "They lost all the oversized bags and its impossible to find someone to help you. Once we did, they had no idea where anything was and yet the bags were put on the next plane. Where's the communication? If Frontier in Denver knew they screwed up, wouldn't they call SAN to give them the heads up? Late at night, families w small children, wait more than an hour for a carseat that isnt coming only to wait in another line to claim its lost. This if course all after a long flight. Awful. ...and I didn't get a refund for the bag."

Pros: "The crew on every flight was friendly, helpful and even some of them funny."
Cons: "Frontier's decision to nickel and dime everything. To have to pay to choose one's seat ahead of time? To pay for a carry on, for even something to combat the dehydration that happens on flights, is annoying and I won't fly this airline again."

Cons: "Did not have any food or drink"

Cons: "No help from ANYONE from this airline!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What's wrong with you people??????????????????"

Cons: "I had the flight from San Diego to Denver then we stopped at Las Vegas because of some who had heart attack. I had a meeting at that day I couldn't attend because we were at the airport of Las Vegas from 9 to 2 pm looking for a flight going to Washington DC. They found a flight from Vegas to Denver then to DC but they lay over is 15 hours in Denver and I couldn't wait because I had an appointment for my dad in the next day in the morning for dialysis. So I had to reserve another flight from Vegas to Baltimore directly. And I paid that. Also, there was a lady who checked in the luggage in San Diego. When I was checking in my luggage she told me to pay 30 dollars for my bag while there was another family after me and she didn't get any money from them for their luggage and she checked their luggage for a free. This UNFAIR and impolite. So I need all of my money back also the difference that I paid for the new ticket and luggage. Thanks Wafa"

Pros: "The crew are nice people, and it got me from Denver to San Diego and back. Relatively inexpensive."
Cons: "I'm tall (6'4"), there's no leg room, and the head rests aren't actually tall enough for me to sleep on. So, not super comfortable. I didn't expect anything more really. It just sucks that air travel forces premium prices for basic comfort."

Cons: "Crew was not very friendly, seats are not comfortable, and baggage is too expensive."

Cons: "Frontier is the worst airline ever. Make it look like a cheaper fare but charge you for every possible thing they can. Your seat, drinks and even your damn carry on bag. NEVER AGAIN."

Pros: "The handle on my suitcase was broken sometime between check-in in San Diego and arrival in Madison. Agent didn't know how to file a claim. Later supervisor took over as nd told me that "handles and zippers are not covered for damage." She held up a paper and told me it was in the fine print. The least they could have done was at least refund the $40.00 baggage fee. Bad news poor training . Easy fix but they missed it Joel A."

Cons: "The crew on the ground in Denver were not able to get the walkway up to the plane for at least 20 minutes after we landed. The luggage was really slow too. left the airport 50 min after the plane landed and was at the gate. Online there was no option for not purchasing a seat at check in. Deceptive pricing and policies. I did not know it was an option to not pay extra for a seat."

Cons: "Ridiculous amount of room,so cramped. You used to do well, costs for baggage too high...1 hour late start...on time commercials are false. Will not fly frontier anymore. Very disappointed!"

Pros: "I would like a free snack and drink. The stewardess passed over me when asking for a drink."
Cons: "We had to pay for a drink."

Pros: "The flights were short and the passengers were nice."
Cons: "I understand that Frontier is trying to minimize flight price by charging independantly for everything, but they take it to the extreme. Charging for a carry-on and choice of seat (including a middle seat) is a bit ridiculous. The plane seats were not comfortable and did not recline. I would not recommend Frontier to anyone because the flight price plus the add-ons did not make Frontier any cheaper than a comfortable airline."

Pros: "The staff was very nice/pleasant."
