Pros: "The flight was very good and no problems were encountered."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Short and sweet no problem"
Pros: "It was quite average, nothing special.They severed some drinks and you get a bag of pretzels. The staff was very friendly and nice. It was only a 1 1/2 flight, so the only entertainment is magazines."
Cons: "The legroom was fine for me, but if you are about 6ft tall or over, you will feel a little cramped. Try to get an exit row seat if can."
Pros: "plane is new/crew was friendly"
Cons: "no legroom/food was horrible; worst ever on any flight I have taken to and from korea. Worst"
Cons: "At boarding/check-inn there was inly one young women to handle the crowd of passengers boarding. She was over worked, but did real welll!!!"
Cons: "I had charged 300$ for my extra luggage this morning at the checking ....it never happened to me before usually I paid 100$ but never that much... I will never ever flight with United again for sure."
Pros: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "I am lucky to check-in earlier with United, staffs at counter is very nice and courtesy, he was able to book an earlier flight so I could catch up on time with my scheduled flight to China, I was boarding the United 9:45 but its departure was roughly around 11:15 am"
Cons: "Flight delay that could affect my international flight connection Which I had only 1:05 between flight"

Pros: "Flight was on time and luggage was not lost. In flight meal service was better than average."
Cons: "in the last row battling for share if the armrest."
Cons: "United and SAS are really separate and hard to manage reservation. Seats changed from what I purchased and it was uncomfortable. I don't think I will do a mixed airline flight again even though they quote them as a Star Aliance. Also, flying through Chicago ORD is not great. The international terminal is completely separate so you have to take a train, pour out water, enter security (and they don't have a TSA Pre). All around uggh."
Pros: "This reflects first leg flight from San Fran to Chicago."
Cons: "Cramped and uncomfortable"
Cons: "they canceled the flight and put us on american airlines wich was terrible"
Cons: "Flight was delayed until the next morning because of weather"
Pros: "Bad weather caused my flights to be re-routed, but United did wonderful in arranging for an similar arrival time to my final destination. I am very grateful for that. I can't judge the airline on something they have no control over."
Cons: "The bad weather that caused my flights to be re-routed!"
Pros: "The Stroopwaffle"
Cons: "The hour delay"
Pros: "We arrived safely on time."
Cons: "Bathroom is too small. Announcements were anxiety inducing. Sick people on the airplane spreading germs."
Cons: "Don't like being squeezed in, but it is what it is"
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."
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."
Cons: "There is nothing more disappointing than having your flight delayed after a long week when all you want to do is get home to be with family."
Pros: "Seats were comfy, and the snack (caramel-filled waffle cookie) was a nice little treat."

Pros: "Every time the winds shift south they get delayed or cancel flights to smaller airports."
Cons: "Multiple gate shifts, lack of communication with customer. Blaming flight cancellation on weather at destination when that wasn't the case at all. Geez don't lie it's not necessary! Had to take flight to Portland extra two hours of ground travel. No reimbursement. Weather issue you can't blame us. Funny the 737 had no issues departing SFO to PDX."
Pros: "I like the complementary soda. The boarding groups system is smart."
Cons: "I don't care for the wifi options. Loud children."
Pros: "Friendly and courteous crew"
Pros: "Even with rough weather the flight was comfortable and only delayed 20 minutes. The flight crew kept us well informed."
Cons: "No complaints. I did ask for a seat belt extender and never received it but managed to keep it buckled although it was a tight squeeze."
Cons: "Crumbs, fruit peels, and other debris all over the seating area in my row. Seemed like united was more concerned about getting plane back in the air than creating a sanitized and comfortable experience for the next passenger. Simply disgusting conditions to spend 4.5 hours of your life."
Pros: "Great seat"
Pros: "Window seats on both flights saved me on my overnight flight. Thanks Kayak!"
Cons: "The second flight had a pretty old plane with smaller seats."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Middle seat"
Pros: "no snacks unless you pay"
Cons: "seats are too tight"
Cons: "i got to Denver and my flight was cancelled. couldn't get a comp hotel so i was out time, money, and a day of traveling. will not be flying untied again. my girlfriend was also flying united and had a seven hour delay and got put on a different flight, that her seat wasn't available. she was at the airport all day."
Pros: "That United got me to where I wanted to go."
Cons: "That airline companies are so strict about making changes & the cost involved. I couldn't believe the price to change a date on a return flight. I went to Alaska airlines & bought a one way ticket for $30 less than the price of the change. Better times & schedules too. I was at one time a premier flyer almost a 1K status flyer with United. Now, I don't even bother. United Airlines Suck!!!!!"
Pros: "This leg of the trip was fine, on time and they provided blankets! Satisfied, but the mobile version of this rating site does not allow me to change the rating to higher."
Pros: "Kyak Notified me every step of the way basically dummy proofed my flight don't know if other sites do this as well but got gate change notifications and all changes!!"
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable. The video screen could not be turned off and kept waking me up, bad on an overnight flight."
Cons: "The flight seemed very unorganized. Once we had to make a random refuel in Canada I knew something was up besides the bad weather excuse they gave. The crew didn't seem to be able to pass any information along and gave either misleading info if any at all. There was no food or snacks given with it being a 5 hour flight to a 7 hr flight with the mishap to get more fuel."
Pros: "That I got bumped to first class on my flight the next day."
Cons: "I had a 47 minute layover scheduled. I had an hour delay on my first flight and they didn't hold anyone's connecting flight, which ended up being the last flights out for the night. By the time we got hotel vouchers, our bags and a shuttle to the hotel there was less than 4 hours to actually sleep. If I had known how slow the process was I would have opted to sleep in the airport so I got more than 3 hours of sleep."
Pros: "I arrived alive."
Cons: "United Airlines has one job, to move people from one location to the next. I'm concerned that United thinks it's in the data transfer business or the package hauling business or some kind of "gotcha' Internet business. There were never enough people at United to help me with my problem. Those real human employees that I found were mostly overworked, over regimented and procedure focused."
Pros: "Friendly stewardist"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for close to four hours. Staff at the airport did not keep us updated about the flight changes. Nothing was offered to passengers as compensation for our missed family activities, wasted time away from out loved ones, etc. This is my first time flighting with United Airlines and I did not have a good experience."
Pros: "That being said, I liked that they has Moscow Mules for purchase. The gate agent was very kind & helped check my husbands bag as the overhead bin space was full. The crew was fine."
Cons: "My first beef with United is that I needed to change my flight 36 hours after purchasing it & wanted a 200.00 change fee for a 79.00 flight, it was more cost effective to purchase a new ticket to with another airline than change my ticket. Silly really."
Pros: "Smaller plane! Easy board, quick flight"
Cons: "Seats are packed in, no wifi, arrived way early sat on tar mat no fresh air my chest was hurting from the smell of jet fumes until we finally pulled into a gate!"
Cons: "Waiting for 3 hrs past boarding time for crew to arrive. Waiting on plane for 11/2 for plane to b de iced. Waiting for crew to get permission to fly because they went past hrs to fly"
Cons: "The fact that they kept delaying it by 30 minute intervals for four hours until eventually it was cancelled. Oh and now the new flight is delayed 30 minutes."
Pros: "I liked everything feel comfortable flying by air plane"
Pros: "I was comfortable. I entered and exited the plane very fast."
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."
Pros: "Flight was only 2 hours."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable. Tray table can barely fit 1 water bottle. The have taken the standard tray table and made it into something that is basically worthless. Forget trying to use a laptop or even a tablet to work. They charge for everything and now ask you to tip your flight attendant for handing you a water that costs $3.00. Will avoid Frontier at all costs in the future. Seats are thin, hard and so close together. No room between seats. Seats do not recline unless you are in emergency exit room. If you want to select your seat during check-in, they charge you extra. Even for a seat in the last row on the plane was an extra $5 just to select it. Seats closer to the front were an extra $25, but these are not better seats or offer more room, just the ability to get off the plane faster after landing. Carry on baggage cost extra and checked bags are $40. After paying for baggage, seats, a water on a round trip, the low cost turned out to be more expensive than another carrier with seats that are more comfortable and gave you more room between seats, entertainment and a free soft drink or water."
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"
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: "seats were some what comfortable"
Cons: "did not like the fact that I had to pay extra for a seat when I already purchased a ticket"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "Frontier is all around archaic in a modern world."
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."
Cons: "The website was confusing at check in and I thought I had to select a seat. I was charged for a seat twice due to a lay over. $70 for a seat that would go back slightly and had a decent amount of leg room. $35 to check a bag, carry on cost more. My inexpensive ticket turned out to cost me an extra $140 dollars"
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: "Having to pay for a simple drink or snack with credit cards only"
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"
Cons: "they cancelled the fligh on me - over booked"
Cons: "Did not like getting a flight for 67 dollars plus tax and having to pay 40 both ways for my carry on"
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."
Pros: "Nothing except one stew. She was funny."
Cons: "Add on costs. Just post what you want for the fly to begin with. Don't have times for games. Didn't use the rest room. Wonder how much that was? Probably read about the trip in my blog- gnatoutdoors.com"
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 plane is pretty."
Cons: "Everything costs something, whether it's a seat, carry-on, or food and drink, this airline knows how to charge you for it. I'm surprised they didn't charge me for the air I breathed during the flight. Consumer beware: everything is optional on the flight. Ugly form of capitalism used to exploit the consumer for profit. Awful, just awful."
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."
Pros: "Easy boarding since nobody was on the flight."
Cons: "Surprise $65 carry on bag fee...not a checked bag fee...so they basically want you to travel and just use the clothes on your back. Highway robbery."
Pros: "Customer service during flight check-in was great, quick, friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Overall attitude of main female flight attendant, simply condescending and overall rude."
Cons: "I arrived 43 minutes ahead of flight instead of 45, and was not allowed to check my bag, so I missed the flight. I have not seen my family in a year and the lady at the counter showed no remorse and offered no apologies. She kept an angry face asked me to please move out of the way for other customers. I will NEVER fly frontier again."
Pros: "The friendly crews"
Cons: "They charge extra for.carrying a small bag on board"
Pros: "Paid extra for more spacious seating"
Cons: "That everything cost extra. Checking in online, extra so that you could get 2 seats next each other. Snacks and drinks on the plane, extra money. Baggage cost way to much money. Ridiculous!"
