Pros: "An itenirary update ahead of time. We missed our flight."
Cons: "Send us an update the day before about upcoming flight."
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."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by almost two hours so I missed the flight from Denver to Charlotte. Because of the way this flight was sold to us and booked through Kiwi.com, there was nothing that could be done to get me on another flight. The only option was to wait for a Frontier flight which wasn't available until Monday morning. I had to book another flight on a different airline at a cost of $600."
Cons: "Negative leg room, Hugh bag fees that were not stated in the original purchase"
Pros: "Non stop flight, friendly staff"
Cons: "Checked baggage fee $38 each way, checked carry on fee $30 each way, pay for your seat fee no matter where you sit. BS! These are hidden costs you see after you book the flight. You can cancel within 24 hours, but, that’s a headache after you’ve already planned. No worries Frontier. I will be avoiding you at all costs for future travel. Why not just include the costs up front?"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 hrs while other flights to Denver kept taking off"
Pros: "Quick boarding / deplaning"
Cons: "You have to PAY for a CARRY ON. That's just deceptive so I recommend doing the math when you book your next flight and go for other airlines even if their price is slightly higher than Frontier."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we got a notification from google, but when we called Frontier, they said it was on time. And when we reached the airport they said, its been delayed. It caused a lot of inconvenience. Very unprofessional."
Pros: "The direct flight"
Cons: "New plane had Uncomfortable seats, ventilation of air flow was poor, no food/beverage service, where you place your head is hard, many announcements during the red eye flight, a lot of turbulence."
Cons: "Carry on bag cost of $45."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled!!!"
Cons: "Flight was canceled and they didn't have any more flight Ha for 6 days. So frustrating. Ended up paying $500 for a last minute flight on another airline."
Cons: "On a holiday arrived early to avoid traffic and the bag counter wants open. Had to stand there and wait for service, just to print out tickets. I have always scanned directly from my phone. Huge incovience. Flight attendants served to much alcohol to parents with a three month old. Allowed to much traffic through the cabin."
Pros: "Clean, friendly staff."
Cons: "Seats did not recline, so it was impossible to rest during this long, middle of the night flight. Misled about cost of carry-on."
Pros: "Flight was good and landing smooth."
Cons: "No beverages or snacks were offered. The flight was a late night flight and there was no where refreshments or beverages could be purchased, hence I was forced to fast for 6 hours."
Cons: "if you have to change flight, flight delay etc, frontier does not offer the flight capacity of other airlines, and thus is unreliable as a menas of getting to mostly all destinations they fly to. San Francisco to Chicago, they offer one flight every two days, anything goes wrong you are stuck without a flight"
Pros: "Literally. Nothing. Showing up at my destination alive, I guess."
Cons: "2 hour delay, then a three hour delay bc of weather. Another 45 minutes taxi-ing, then back at the gate because a passenger had to be escorted off because he didn't have a boarding pass. We were rushed to board he flight in the first place before the flight crew timed out; we finally took off at 2am with exhausted pilots which was terrifying. Also frontier charges for all bags and all seats, instead of including it in their base fee. Plane is tigjt and uncomfortable, no on board entertainment and seats don't recline. Most passengers were drunk and rowdy after long wait at the airport, and a man was busted for smoking weed in the bathroom. And someone else sat in my seat. THE WORST FLIGHT EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD--an all around disaster."
Cons: "The plane looked old (chipped paint, outdated upholstery). Seats did not recline. Had to pay for all baggage, carry-ons and drinks/food: this greatly increased the price of what we originally thought was a good deal on our flight."
Pros: "The flight arrived 40 minutes early."
Cons: "I paid $40 for a carry on. The plane was not pressurized, I've never had my ears hurt to bad on a plane."
Cons: "Seats comfort is not very good. Tray tables too small."
Cons: "I left a bag in the airport, and they did not issue a guest pass to help me retrieve it. While the police and other flight agencies they should issue it. The person at the counter was indifferent, and lazy."
Pros: "Leg room that I paid extra for"
Cons: "Staff very rude, continuously asked if the passengers next to me spoke English even though they obviously did, very uncomfortable chairs"
Pros: "This cheap flight will cost you twice as much if you plan on bringing any luggage. Frontier Web site is horrible. And don't try to fly with anyone cause unless you pay another $100 to sit together."
Cons: "Everything. Seats are bad. Customer service is bad. Cost is bad loads of hidden fees."
Pros: "Polite and efficient"
Cons: "Comfort of seats. Price of ticket and charge for carry on"
Pros: "Staff was great. Flight was comfortable. Loved having an all female crew."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to mechanical issues. This is very frustrating."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for about 1.5 hours in Denver before we could leave the plane."
Cons: "Frontier's computers were down for updates at the same time we were trying to board. They could not get us on board, and we have not missed a funeral of one of our closest family members. This is simply unacceptable."
Cons: "Lost luggage, and casually 30-45 minutes late without even updating the flight status"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. No big deal. It happens. But the the manager at the ticket desk took two hours to figure out a solution. His "solution" was to print out a phone number, hand it out to each of the passengers and then tell them to call because "there was nothing else he could do for us". And then he left to some back office and didn't come back out. The phone number he gave everyone was out of service. I called the regular customer service and asked them to help me rebook a new flight. They refused and said only the employees at the ticket counter could assist. The ticket counter people offered a refund over and over. But why would I want a 100 refund when I needed to book a 3-400 dollar flight to get to my destination. About eight hours, a couple of yelling matches, getting hung up on twice, and several actual tears later, I finally got a flight booked but the earliest flight they could find was 24 hours after my original scheduled arrival time. I'm writing this thirty minutes into my wait for a hotel shuttle. Long story short, I will take a greyhound or catch a cab or walk to my destination before I ever use frontier again"
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Got delayed almost one hour. Seats didn't lean back. No snacks included."
Pros: "staff and crew were friendly and communicative."
Cons: "plane was delayed. boarding was weird, but i think maybe just because of construction at the airport."
Cons: "Charged for every additional thing so the cost of the ticket was not true."
Cons: "Flight was 3 hrs late...plane dirty"
Cons: "When did Frontier become a Spirit type of airline where everything is a cost? Even a carry-on bag? Will never fly them again. No reclining seats and what was with the tray? Can it even be called a tray?"
Cons: "Flight left 45 minutes late with no alerts, uncomfortable planes, tray "tables" couldn't hold more than a deck of cards and a small coffee, nickel and dime for everything, no wifi"
Pros: "Efficient boarding, arrived early"
Cons: "Had to pay extra for everything--seats, sodas, bags both carry-on & checked. Seat tray miniscule"
Pros: "I liked that everything was concise and to the point, that is good for short flights."
Cons: "I didn't like that the you have to pay for carry-on, for water. I don't think I would take this airline for a long flight because there is no leg room."
Pros: "???"
Cons: "The seats are like benches. I had to have a body massage as I arrived due to body ache There was no food Paid $40 bucks for my carry on"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the plane was clean. Seats aren't too bad either."
Cons: "This is the only airline I know of that charges for a carry on bag as well as non-alcoholic beverages. Also, the charging for seats is ridiculous."
Cons: "Hidden seat and carry on fees. Come on now. What is the likely hood someone doesn't have a bag flying 2500 miles. You're going to charge for that in addition to the ticket? Plus, yes plus another charge to select a seat. Super dumb and honestly a bit childish. Put your entire price online and let people pick. Also note zero wifi. I know you're a lower tear airlines but it's 2016! Give the people the all in price and if you won't give them entertainment or wifi make worth their wild. Also note, the tray table was about the size of a tablet, I couldn't even use my computer to do local work during the flight. I appreciate the safe flight but from a high level: 1: make your online prices more transparent. 2: if you're going to be lower tear, make it clear that wifi and infighting entertainment isn't included. People will still choose to fly cheap, but to burry hidden charges is horrible."
Pros: "If Kayak wants to boost its website it should give overall projected costs for flights not just bare bones prices. Frontier is the biggest nickel and diming company since Ryan Air. What a disgusting and dubious way to run a business. Worst experience ever. I have had and continue to have status with at least two of the large carriers, so I have flown a lot. Too bad no one else could provide the direct flight to Cincinnati."

Too bad no one else could provide the direct flight to Cincinnati."
Cons: "No human should have to endure a flight on this airline that is over two hours. Awful, just awful. Worst seats ever invented."
Cons: "I took off time from work today to catch a 5:25 flight from San Francisco to Denver, arriving at 9:05. It's now 11:55 pm and I am still sitting at gate 21 with a whole bunch of people other waiting for a plane to arrive. My only choices are to wait of this plane to show up, or come back in the morning to take the 5:45am flight. I have business meetings in Denver tomorrow morning. I had a car rented and a hotel reserved. The car rental in Denver closes is 5 minutes. The thing that's the most upsetting is that we keep receiving erroneous information. The original departure time was 5:25. Then we were told 6:00. Then we were told 9:00pm. Then we were told 12:03, Then we were told 12:20. Now we are being told they don't know when the plane will arrive to take us to Denver. I will NEVER fly Frontier again."
Cons: "Since frontier has went cheaper they have become one of the worst airlines. My first flight ran out of water for the bathroom and my second flight we delayed because they had to duct tape the bathroom door back on from the flight before mine."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful, I needed assistance and they were there to take care of my needs."
Cons: "How the airlines charges for everything except water."
Pros: "the flight was cancelled after being delayed for 4 hours. it was delayed because "many passengers booked the flight", and then it was cancelled because the window crack was found. fronter did not partner with other arilines, so the next one was available in 3 days. i had to cancel my whole flight and book last-minute flight with United and left in an hour. I had to pay $1000 extra for this flight. Frontier really ruined my day and my finanicals."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service, seats, everything...not worth the cheaper price"
Pros: "Crew members were fun."
Cons: "The plane was super old. And none of the chairs reclined. And the big surprise was the $35 fee for carry ons lol. Like seriously?"
Pros: "Landings were very smooth."
Cons: "1. Charged $40 for carry-on (each way) 2. Charged $2 for tea. 3. Charged $20 to choose my seat (each way). 4. Flight was 90 minutes late (on a 2 hour flight), no explanation given. 5. Flight delayed another hour due to mechanical problems, no compensation offered, tea still $2."
Pros: "Had to cancel flight because of long delays. Actually went smoothly and got an appropriate refund. Wasn't expecting that to be easy but it was."
Cons: "Carry on bag fees made it more expensive at the end. First flight was delayed 6 hours ended up having to buy another flight last minute"
