I lost my bag and no one can find it.

Cons: "Nothing really. JetBlue is top notch in my book."
Pros: "Free wifi"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Good"
Cons: "Two very sick people were allowed to fly and were not denied boarding during these times of Covid19. We actually had to taxi back to terminal to remove a very sick passenger. JetBlue #100 March 17, 2020 10:12 pm from Los Angeles to Fort Lauderdale."
Cons: "."
Cons: "Tvs were broken"
Cons: "Excellent, one time, WiFi, Entertaiment screen, all good"
Cons: "Had to check carry on and go to baggage carousel delaying my getting out of the airport"
Pros: "Very comfortable seats and great snacks"
Cons: "Really small bathrooms in Salt Lake City gate area. Terrible wait!"
Pros: "Crew is always great."
Cons: "The TV wasn't working at my seat"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "2 hours late"
Cons: "Poor movie selection/ purchase for outdated headphones required. No USB."
Cons: "Boarding was by groups but ended up being 2 different lines of people merging into one. I felt as though boarding should be smoother/more organized."
Pros: "Best food and entertainment"
Cons: "Carry on baggaged had to be checked in, however when we boarded we noticed there was still room available."
Pros: "Cabin clean and comfortable, moist towels atvthe end were a pleasant surprise. My tv worked this time. Agents thought ahead and asked for passengers to check carry-ons before we were standing in the aisle without anymore overhead space."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I had to spend 8 hours in the airport waiting for the plane. It had nothing to do with the weather. It was mechanical at one airport and it was passenger problems on the plane going to New Orleans. I got a food voucher but it was because I asked for it. The least they could have done for The passengers without asking for it."
Pros: "The flight crew was very nice"
Cons: "The fact that I was 3 minutes late to check my bag (due to a line and walking to the wrong counter the first time) and they would not allow me to go on my original flight and route my bag on another flight. This resulted in me and my bag getting pushed on two new flights and my overall travel time going from 4.5 hrs to 11 hrs which with a 15 month old is an eternity. Many other airlines will allow you to make exceptions when checking in late (I was still nearly 40 minutes prior to flight departure) and let me still check a bag OR allow me and my baby to stay on the same flight without the bag."
Pros: "Captain ended up being a good pilot with a very smooth landing,"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 hours because the crew was comprised of members from flights delayed by the snowstorm. Even though gate attendants knew they were on their way, attendants refused to let us board until the crew was all on board. Then we had to wait some more....... Also they were lax on pre-boarding announcements, not letting families with children on first. And waiting until each group was fully boarded before announcing the next. Plus the enunciation of various announcements was difficult to understand and/or way too fast. It wasn't funny."
Pros: "I love the complementary drinks, snacks and WiFi. Direct TV & Sirius XM radio is also included! The staff is always nice and friendly. I like that you are allowed 1 carry on and one personal item under your seat."
Cons: "I think there could be more leg room or space. Tha man next to me kept rubbing against me every time he took a sip of his drink. Otherwise no complaints!"
Pros: "The service was good, the airplane was clean and I loved the leg space."
Cons: "I got an email saying the flight was delayed but It was actually on time. Why did I get that email?"
Pros: "The personal eye mask and ear plugs for the overnight flight"
Pros: "I setup this flight for my mother who is not proficient when it comes to traveling. She love JetBlue for the convenience and of course the entertainment. Cross country trips are not easy but your airline makes easy for her."
Cons: "The always complains about the lack of food so she always bring some with her."
Pros: "Non stop flight"
Cons: "Attendants did May snacks around other than once and they didn’t clean up very often. Had a tray full of empty containers far too long"
Pros: "Crew were nice. They gave out cookies and chips."
Cons: "Families with kids should go second on the plane, not almost last. The air conditioning system was broken. The seats were hard on my bottom which made for a rough red eye flight. Hit tons of turbulence with no warning. I know you can see that ahead of time so just give us a heads up. They couldn’t get the bridge way to the plane so we sat for half an hour in the no ac plane instead of getting us a stair or other gate."
Pros: "I loved that the pilot on my first flight introduced himself and staff to the customers prior to loading the plane. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. The leg-room! The leg room was a great surprise. No hassle with bags. Great snacks, wi-fi and movies for FREE! I was so tickled. I've never flown JetBlue. I thought it was just another low-cost airline that makes you pay for everything , what a nice surprise! I immediately gave you a shout-out on my facebook account. Best flight experience I've had in a long time. Thank you."
Pros: "Seat space, legroom, personal TV, free movies, free unlimited snacks"
Pros: "I appreciated the in flight entertainment, the eye mask and ear plugs."
Cons: "The seats were horribly uncomfortable. The controls for the screen are on the arm rest, where they get inadvertently pushed. Would have liked another beverage service on a flight that long."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean and comfortable and everything went official"
Cons: "The film did not work"
Pros: "you had gluten free choices"
Cons: "need expanded gluten free menu"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I came to the airport 11:30am asked to rebook for earlier flight which wasn’t possible unless 75$ charged. I decided to wait till 4:16pm departure that ended being 3:50 am the next day. Meanwhile it took several hours to receive water and pretzels, pizza finally came after 9 hr wait(which gave me heartburn). Ground crew disorganized feeding us excuses of weather (wx) which initially was a landing gear problem for first 1.5 hr delay then again WX and ATC not assigning a route(while other airlines departing no problem) then crew timed out then no plane & again waiting for crew...Seriously? What a management!!! Reading comments below this keeps repeating however this was about 13 hours delay. This company should quit!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly, and the TV's were working on the flight (did not on the flight from FLL/EWR)."
Cons: "Booked this flight to get a ride home, and in time for dinner with family. Flight was delayed 50 min. because of a delay in the arrival of the plane (not weather). During boarding process they were allowing people to get up and move around before takeoff, delaying over another 10min. When we finally arrived at 9:10 to the gate, another plane was at the gate and we did not get into the gate until 9:25. Thus, by the time the flight arrived I needed to get other transportation, cost me $25 and additional 30min. waiting for ride. This resulted in getting me home almost 2 hours late. Additional feedback: I book an aisle seat because I like being able to lift the arm on the outside, not available on this flight. I don't recall the plug for the headphones being down so far in the arm rest, thus struggled to find the plug."
Cons: "The boarding was a shitshow because nothing was done to prevent people from taking all of the overhead compartment room, so by the time my group boarded, there was no room. But, people were still trying and so that backed the line way up from 1/2 way into the plane all the way out the plane and IN SPITE OF MY REPEATED ATTEMPTS TO GET THE FLIGHT CREW TO ASSIST AND CLEAN UP THIS PILE OF HUMANITY, THEY DID NOTHING!!! They forced me to gate checked my carry on bag (no checked bag) and did not tell me I would not get it back AT the plane and had to go out through security to get it at the baggage claim and come back in through security and because of that incompetence I MISSED MY CONNECTION AND WAS STRANDED IN FLL OVERNIGHT. After the front desk continuously trying to explain to me how it was my fault some how, I HAD TO PURCHASE A SEPARATE TICKET ON A DIFFERENT AIRLINE OUT OF MIA AT 5AM TO MAKE THE WEDDING!!!! This is beyond unacceptable and as someone that travels for work and stays roughly 100 nights a year in hotels, I WILL NEVER ALLOW YOUR COMPANY TO BE ABLE TO PUT ME IN THIS SITUATION AGAIN!!!!"
Pros: "Strong/ solid WiFi, great staff"
Cons: "Plane wouldn’t cool down, hot the entire 5 hours. Seats are uncomfortable and arrow. Hi"
Pros: "loved the accessibility of the treats and cold drinks"
Pros: "Overall good experience"
Pros: "Good service nice legroom nice entertainment"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Every single employee I interacted with was awesome."
Cons: "Over 5 hours in delay due to a maintenance issue. Problem wasn't discovered overnight when it was parked. Wasn't discovered until the next day. Had to wait for the delivery of a specific part and install it. I'm all for planes not breaking upon reentry, but the fact that the two flights were both subsequently delayed 4-5 hours each instead of bringing in a sub plane was inconsiderate. Now I've got a long drive home and I'll only get an hour of sleep before a 14-hour work day. So thanks for that, JetBlue"
Pros: "I couldn't get in touch with the travel agency to reschedule my flight. The staff at Asiana and Jet Blue were not helpful at all."
Cons: "Boarding time and crew was slowest ever?!!!"
Pros: "Once again the system for my seat did not work. Fortunately, the middle seat was empty and I wa able to watch that screen."
Cons: "Entertainment System did not work at my seat. WiFi signal was not strong enough for me to watch any videos on my device."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "No surprises."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "This was a newer plane than the one we took out to San Diego. The plane had better seats and this time the electronics ( monitor) actually functioned properly and was a delight to melt away the 5.5 hour trip back to FLL."
Cons: "Return of checked bags was really terrible . THey announced three changes to which carousel bags would come out on. Then more than half an hour wait for the first bags to appear. This is NOT SATISFACTORY !!"
Pros: "Crew was excellent! And very attentive"
Pros: "Very comfortable and the crew was amazing."
Pros: "Great service... excellent smooth flight."
Pros: "The night kit"
Cons: "My trip of a lifetime to Peru (Choquequirao, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca) has been severely impacted because my luggage was not put on my flight. Computer record showed that I did not board despite my boarding pass being scanned and my passport number entered at the gate before I boarded. I left for a 6 day trek to Choquequirao, Peru without any of the gear that I needed for this trip. I had to acquire the bare minimum in a rush the night before leaving for the trek. I'm 10 days into my trip and still do not have my bag. Central baggage claim has been less than sympathetic and not at all proactive or helpful."
Cons: "3.5 hour delay because the plane was very late arriving from JFK>SFO due to "weather" which we did not encounter nor could I find mention of at the FAA website or other weather sites. A large group of teens were crowding the boarding gate which delayed us even further and were disruptive so it was difficult to hear cues for boarding. I arrived 4 hours later than scheduled, missing an appointment. At the request of the gate agent, I volunteered for free gate-checked luggage due to a very full flight. My bag was never checked and was delivered 14 hours after I had arrived home. 12:30 AM. Crew of the plane was excellent, and the flight itself was thankfully uneventful."
Pros: "empty plane"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "Prompt boarding and good directions from the crew"
Cons: "AA cancelled the Dallas flight before this one so they could fill up our flight. This does not seem very considerate of our health during a Pandemic especially with their messaging about social distancing. They also did a very poor job of keeping people patient in the deplaning process. They should have better messaging and a very non threatening way of encouraging passengers to be patient and courteous. Maybe they good offer each passenger a choice some type of goodie like a mint or a chocolate that says "please enjoy this while you wait for others to exit the plane"."
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "The experience was excellent."
Pros: "The Flight Attendant was excellent. Genuine smile, attentive, and pleasant."
Cons: "No delays"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable chair. Entertainment was great."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "The gate agents called all boarding groups with the boarding queue extending the entire length of the jet bridge and into the terminal beyond the gate area, making us stand in line ten to fifteen minutes longer for no reason."
Pros: "Comfortable"
Cons: "It would’ve been nice if we made it to fort Meyers!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The seat assignments based on loyalty status - rude gate agents"
Cons: "I could not pre-check or request different seats on the CP website. I think that this was because of issues with the website, apparently due to IT system communication between American Airlines and Cathay Pacific.......on all six flights. On the transfer in San Francisco, Customs was closed when we arrived in San Francisco and we had to haul all of our baggage from one terminal to the other. There was no direction on how to handle this issue of Customs being closed while on the flight to San Francisco. I had to explain the issue of to the CP customer service crew in SF. The CP desk and they had never heard of it. American Airlines was equally poorly trained. I will also say that while at the CP customer service, there were three young adult males that we're not busy at the time and the watched us unload the baggage carts onto the scales and conveyor and then reloaded on to the carts to push to the AA terminal. We handled the bags two additional times because the CP staff did not know what to do and how to handle it. Other passengers were confused as well."
Cons: "Horable...never ever use AA"
Pros: "The crew has invited my kids to take a picture with them. My wife and I have been impressed."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Quick boarding and on time! Speedy and efficient"
Pros: "Very very helpful I will fly AA every time I can"
Cons: "My flight from SFO to Miami was delayed so I missed my connection to Rio and now I’m NYC on my birthday instead of my final destination. The flight status was changed 7 times. And AA said they would get my bag off but they did not and now I have to wait at JFK and hope it got rerouted here. And if it didn’t to hope it can on another flight before I hopefully actually get on a flight for Rio. Nobody has comped me for losing a day in Rio and for my hotel room. And this has been the worst flight exeperience or my life which unfortunately landed on my birthday. One I’ll remember in a sad and bad way. American Airlines refused to compensate me because I got my tickets via Kayak and I haven’t been able to find a number to complain to a Kayak agent whom I sure would say I had to contact American Airlines and nobody would help or take responsilvitu for this disaster."
Pros: "Awesome service"
Cons: ":)"
Pros: "The flights were on time and the staff was very friendly."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "Delayed and no AC working..."
Pros: "Great service great entertainment to make long flight bearable"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Smooth transition with our connecting flight"
Cons: "Plane didn’t feel very clean. Our tray tables were dirty Seats were not very comfortable. Food could do with a little help"
Cons: "I was on a flight to Dallas on an American Airline flight which arrived late due to weather conditions, and the connecting flight didn't even wait for me although they know why I couldn't make it on time. And I was only late for about 5 minutes."
Pros: "Except for narrow seats, all fine"
Cons: "Narrow seats (we were in exit row, so plenty a leg room)"
Cons: "We were not permitted to board the plane until later than expected, but were told we would still take off right away and regain lost time, no mention of a delay at last call or immediately after, despite the 20 minute delay by this point. After taxiing, the pilot informed us of withheld information, that ATC would delay our departure for ~40 minutes, but we could STILL try to make it up in the air. This was a bold faced lie. It was finally  9:52pm before we even took off from SFO. While idling, the cabin started to reek of jet fuel, and people started coughing and sneezing. Upon landing at LAX at 10:46pm, we were told that there was no gate for us, and that we would have to wait for an amount of time that kept changing every time there was an announcement. The toxic jet fumes started to permeate the cabin again, and people started coughing and sneezing in response. Ultimately it is 11:21pm by the time we reached our gate. At this point, the jetway was broken/failed to open, but despite this, the air conditioning was switched off and pax crowd the aisles without direction. Finally we managed to escape at 11:31pm."
Pros: "New plane, early departures, nice crew, terrific entertainment system."
Cons: "We thought we were going to be flying on British Airways American Airways."
Pros: "Smith flight."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of room in the economy cabin."
Cons: "Check in very slow! The computers used for passenger self check in didn't work well. It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed. The clerks seemed to be working quite slowly and were quite unconcerned about the growing line. I'm glad I checked in early for my flight!"
Cons: "I got to Moscow, SVO. I didn't receive my bag. This sucks."
Cons: "Got a notification of a TWO HOUR DELAY departing SFO. Rebooked into Charlotte instead of Dallas to connect to Fort Myers. THAT flight got delayed AFTER the doors were closed by another 45 minutes which caused me to miss my connection to Fort Myers AND have American Airlines leave my bag in Charlotte. I rebooked into West Palm Beach to drive to Fort Myers and my bag stayed in Charlotte even though there was ANOTHER 45 minute delay to change a tire on the plane. If I practiced medicine the way the airline handled customers, I'd kill every third patient!"
Cons: "You overbooked the flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and i have to miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "Everything was on time and luggage arrived at my final destination"
Cons: "Free wifi would be amazing :)"
Pros: "The entire fly, connections, food and both crews excelente. Flight on time."
Pros: "Airline and crew looked after us and kept us informed. My app said the flight was delayed but the captain didn't seem to know this so we sat for half an hour or more after planned departure. Maybe he hoped to get an earlier slot. We were 30 mins late in the end."
Cons: "No food for purchase, just a drink and biscuit."
Cons: "Our flight was delay for about 3 hours."
Pros: "Provided overnight hotel for cancelled flight"
Cons: "Cancelled two flight connections to Austin from Phoenix."
Pros: "No food at all."
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Lots of free movies."
Cons: "No free food."
Cons: "overcharges"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hrs"
Pros: "nice people"
Cons: "cramped seats, no free muchies and snacks"
Pros: "The Good: The seat configuration available for an upcharge of $38 gave just enough additional room to make getting my frail elderly mother in and out of her seat and accessing items she needed from a bag stored under the seat ahead of me much easier and safer than it would have been in, say, the sardine can-like conditions of the coach section on United flights."
Cons: "The Bad: At boarding, American does not provide pre-boarding for those who need extra time. I was traveling with my elderly mother, who can walk (very) short distances but is quite frail. American was great about providing a wheelchair to the gate, but then we were on our own. Because there was no designated boarding for people needing extra time or assistance, I had to sharp elbow my way to the front of the post-first class boarders and talk folks into letting her through. Stressful for both of us."
Pros: "Big plane, comfortable seat. Great crew."
Cons: "Take off time was over 30 minutes. No personal entertainment option."
Pros: "Smooth flight Service was ok"
Cons: "all ok"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 hours leaving San Francisco going to Orlando. My mother checked a bag which cost $35. The ticketing agent picked up her bag and slammed it down on the conveyor belt. I was so shocked at the rough handling of my mothers belongings and the fact that the agent didn't give a care. My sister and I were charged $45 each for our carry-on bags. They began boarding us but the flight crew made us wait on the walkway to the plane for 15 minutes before they let us on the plane. The flight crew was rude and disorganized. The seats did not recline, next no padding and the chair back in front had no padding at all. There were no complimentary drinks or food provided on the 5 hr flight. We were threatened by the passenger behind us twice but no assistance was given by the flight crew. We are extremely disappointed and will never fly Frontier again. We should have paid the extra money to fly Delta from TPA which would have taken 2 hours off of our drive time. We visited Frontier's website which provides nothing but excuses for why they charge extra for EVERYTHING. Overall Frontier may have some of the cheaper flights but after you're done paying for the extras you may as well fly with a carrier that provides more comfort and better service. Frontier has lost our business."
Pros: "Cheap price but you definitely pay elsewhere. Watch out for extra charges for bags, seats, and beverages. Nice staff."
Cons: "Delayed flights to and from my destination and during lay overs. When I approached staff about my connecting flight I was told I would make it. Our plane taxied into the gate my connecting flight was docked at. We waited in the plane so my connecting flight could take off. In turn I wasn't pushed to a flight 5 hours later. I left my accommodations at 6:15AM. Due to layovers and delays I will not be home until 11:15PM. Also planes required "maintenance" each time and still had no running water and jammed overhead compartments."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "Three dollar glass of soda...please!"
Cons: "Seats were hard and didn't recline at all"
Cons: "We had a two hour delay, but otherwise the flight was fine."
Pros: "I really appreciated that a supervisor credited me a full refund after I discovered mid-day before my 6:30 p.m. Sunday flight that the Frontier flight had been delayed, for no apparent reason, by nearly 4 hours, which would have gotten me into Denver at 1:45 a.m. Not acceptable, so I changed to a United flight, but the customer representative initially told me I could not get a refund (only a credit), but then the supervisor that I asked to speak with agreed to give me a full refund, and he was very polite and accommodating. I did appreciate that. Thank you."
Cons: "For no apparent reason, certainly not weather related, Frontier delayed their San Francisco to Denver flight nearly 4 hours, which would have gotten me into Denver at 1:45 a.m. This was unacceptable, so I switched to United, and it was much better and I got to Denver at the time Frontier was originally supposed to land. Thank you."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours and wait on runway was 1 hour after landing. The issue was not having sufficient Jetway"
Pros: "The airline agents had pleasant personalities."
Cons: "My travel experience with Frontier was frustrating. They seem like a new company that doesn't have a lot of experience running an airline business. The airline agents seemed inexperienced. I had a long wait in line to just drop my checked bag for my outgoing flight, and there were only a few people in line ahead of me. We were at least a half hour late taking off after the pilot said we would be in the air in a minute. During take off, the plane swerved in an alarming way I had never felt before. They only served complimentary water on my long flight to California, everything else you had to pay for. I had another long wait just to drop my checked bag for my return flight, first because there was no one at the Frontier counter for at least an hour after I arrived at the airport, then because the line moved very slowly. My return flight was delayed almost 2 hours, and when I boarded the plane and found the window seat I paid extra for, the flight attendant told me that my seat was taken by a family that wanted to stay together. She told me I could either break up the family or sit in a middle seat close by. I agreed to take the middle seat but it wasn't until I told her I paid for the window seat that she offered to find another window seat for me. In the end, the cheap ticket price wasn't worth it, after paying to check luggage both ways and paying for the window seat. I found myself wishing I would have gone with a different airline. I doubt I'll fly with Frontier again."
Pros: "Fast boarding. The crew were friendly, and clearly a lot of regular commuters and travelers were on this route. More like a local bus ride. The energy was positive and the process efficient."
Cons: "My seatbelt was damaged and old. The belt was twisted, the tension clamp did not work, and the stitching on the air bag sleeve ( I was in the 1st row) was coming out. The plane had a lot of interior pieces missing, trim pieces falling of, little holes etc. I realize that this doesn't impact the over all mechanical safety - yet if they can't even replace a seat belt or fix a piece of trim how do I know that the engines and flight computers are in good shape ? I am a product developer, marketer, and also a motorcycle rider. So I understand the stats, still I don't want a janky plane ride with broken pieces."
Cons: "I checked in early online the night before my flight only to stand in line for 45-55 minutes to drop off my bag. They also didn't have anyone working the counters until about an hour and a half before my flight departure time. Myself and about 100 others were standing in line for about 20 minutes before anyone showed up to help us check in or take our bags. I was charged a seat fee for both of my flights ( I purchased a round trip ticket) I'm pretty sure that should have been included in my initial ticket purchase. To have a carry on requires an additional fee that is more expensive than it is to check a bag. The website said these charges were to give us the best ticket prices however with all the additional fees it was significantly more expensive than their competitors. I will not fly with Frontier again."
Cons: "Flight delayed 4.5 hours. A total waste of time and money."
Pros: "Comfortable flight"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats, aircraft."
Pros: "Everybody was courteous, funny, great flight!!!"
Pros: "The referee was delayed by over 4 hours due to avoidable maintenance issues. Not acceptable!"
Pros: "Nothing -a nightmare trip - delayed 6 hrs in Dia -also waited 2hrs for wheelchair-dirty airplane -diaper under seat & crumbs not cleaned after paying for seat, luggage, food even water,( none of which was mentioned in booking) tips, taxi(no buses to late) cost me over $200 no service on airline. Midnite when arrived SF so no buses to Petaluma so more $ to get there At 81 yrs old I do not like to see such poor mgt No pilots, no crew, no info- was sent to 8 gates from 4 to 10 o"clock no wheelchair- I was at airport at noon- and did not see a bed until 2:30 in morning Have never had treatment like this in my life time and I have gone via Frontier many times to Minot ND HNY Ferne Axelsen"
Pros: "Literally nothing. Absolutely a hellish, terrible nightmare experience in every way."
Cons: "- Frontier literally just threw everyone's bags from over 10 different flights in a giant mess all over the airport. And then was extremely rude to their customers about it. I can't even make this up. - Frontier unloaded bags from multiple flights on the same baggage claim section, and would only partially load certain flights. For instance, they only loaded 1/2 of the bags from my San Francisco flight, and I had to wait a whole day to get my bag bag in a giant mess of bags. - People had been waiting in line for literally 4 hours to talk to someone and when I finally got to the customer service desk she was making small talk and giggling and told me to go to the back of the line and said "well you can keep on waiting" when I said maybe she should have more of a sense of urgency for these poor travelers stuck in the airport literally all day and night. This was also the person in charge of the bags - a catch employee! - They told me they would give me a refund for my cancelled flight and refused to give me a receipt for my refund. They said "we don't give receipts." - Seats were extremely tiny and uncomfortable. - When we landed at the gate we had to stay on our plane for over 1.5 HOURS just waiting to get off because there wasn't a gate available. - They made no effort to reschedule me after my flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Seats not reclining, not very comfortable. To be told I had to Pay for my tiny bag to check instead of taking on plane. If I took it to the gate it would cost 60 to check at gate. Then to only be offered free water on the flight when I paid a lot for my one way flight. It seemed like a slap in the face to be told frontier is growing so fast and opening in new cities with 120 planes ordered, but they can't offer you a free juice and maybe some pretzels. I always liked frontier mainly because they were based out of Denver, but it feels like money is the only driving factor now. I fly a lot but doubt I'll fly frontier again."
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "Cost cutting in every aspect. Bad for long flights."
Pros: "Nothing horrible flight both ways with major delays and terrible service"
Cons: "Frontier made it very clear that it does not value its customers. I arrived a whopping 3.5 hours early to my flight from San Fransisco to Denver. I proceeded through security and my online boarding pass wouldn't scan. I was sent back to the check-in desk where I was met with 4 non-operating kiosks, a vacant check-in counter, and a sign saying they would re-open 2 hours later. What! I was soon joined by many many others who were sent back from security for the same reason. Some people had printout boarding passes that wouldn't scan at security! This was all on a Sunday afternoon, busy busy time for travel. Other complaints that severely impacted my travel experience: 1) Did not send me a flight reminder email or a boarding pass confirmation email. 2) At online check-in, Frontier charged me for my seat. The seat I already paid for! Frontier would not issue my boarding pass until I paid for my seat. That I already paid for. 3) Frontier charged me $30 for my carry-on. Get a clue Frontier! 4) The seats did not have headrests and the legroom was the smallest ever! I don't know how adult-sized people fly Frontier comfortably. 5) Frontier charges for snacks and drinks on the plane. Nothing is complimentary. Again, get a clue Frontier! I will never fly Frontier again."
Cons: "The single worst flight or airline I've ever experienced."
Pros: "The was the only thing good."
Cons: "I will never fly frontier again"
Pros: "Not the strangers sleeping in my armpits."
Cons: "The worst part was we landed at 9:30 and did not get our checked bags until 11:30! We stood around for 2 hours!!!!! They said they were already 45 minutes behind to start with. How do you get that behind? You have to pay for everything, including coffee and water. We paid to check our bags at $25 online because they charge $30 for carry on. After waiting two hours for our checked bags, I sure wish I would have splurged on that $5.00! Even though we bought two tickets, to sit together we would have had to pay more, so I got the nightmare of a girl asleep in my armpit on one side and another guy on other side snoring and legs spread out across my chair. Virgin was only $40 more, would have been worth it in end!"
Pros: "price"
Cons: "comfort level"
Pros: "I appreciated the airline crew and staff explaining the real reasons that our flight, which could have left on time, ended up leaving 90 minutes late"
Cons: "Frontier has essentially lost their ground crew in Denver because their new owners, a holding company, is engaging in "cost-cutting measures" that has decimated staffing and morale"
Pros: "Quick efficient"
Cons: "Legroom"
Pros: "price, plane"
Cons: "late departure, messy gate, re-routed at destination (weather), stuck in other airport for seven hours mostly without information, baggage belt broken at destination, cumulated delay: 10 hours - miserable risk contingency plan"
Pros: "I arrived alive, but that's about it."
Cons: "Over an hour delay in leaving SFO due to poor management (the passengers deplaning from our plane had been kept on the Tarmac for 2 hours before being release b/c Frontier could not find a gate for them). Then a 2 hr 20" flight took 20" longer. To add insult to injury, we were ot offered so much as a glass of water but would be allowed to purchase one. There was a lengthy delay deplaning as we allowed the passengers with connecting flights (half the plane) to deplane first. The we waited over an hour to claim our baggage, after the carousel was changed 3 times. I will not fly Frontier again!"
Cons: "Schedule delayed twice, huge baggage fees for carry on, poor customer service, terrible and thin seats - gum all over plane"
Cons: "Flight delayed 5+ hours, received no notification from kayak"
Pros: "It's really hard to find anything positive to say."
Cons: "Checking, lack of communication during delays, rude crew members, getting yelled at for not sitting while another plane is obviously docked at the gate we are suppose to pull into for an hour. Everything just really sucked not work the price you end up paying with your time, add ons and convenience not worth it."
Cons: "Frontier charges for everything. At check-in the attendant told me I could either bring my bag on the flight for $45 or check it for $40. I wish I knew all this before booking my ticket. I would've just paid extra for a different airline. At least I would've had better service. Every Feontier employee I came into contact with was either jaded or grumpy, as if hey hated their jobs, which made the experience even worse. All of my flights were delayed for whatever reason, and dealing with the staff made the experience that much worse. Most of them were so rude!"
Pros: "The flight was relatively short, and once we boarded we moved out pretty quickly. Bags were delivered quickly as well at the end of the flight"
Cons: "THe flight was delayed by close to two hours, but more surprising was the amount of extraunexpected money we had to spend for basics-close to $30.00 each to "pick" seats, $130.00 each for baggage (yes you have to pay for any luggage beyond one personal item like a purse), money for food, etc. There are not even basics on the lfight such as blankets, and the seats don't recline. Overall, not an airline I would choose again as the "bargain" price turns out to be full of hidden costs that weren't clearly explained upfront"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed by three hours with no explanation for the delays."
Cons: "Told at the checkin desk it's $35 per person to "confirm our seats" -- two in the exit row as all that remained. Why? I paid $250 per person to confirm I wanted on the aircraft. I showed up 1.5 hours early to check in. Also told at the desk it's $40 per checked bag ($45 per carry on!). So when I get to the airport I'm forced to pay $150 more, just to fly to my destination. Credit card only. The lady checking in next to me paid me cash so I'd help her pay her extra fees. Not how to treat your customers. That's what I call a scam. If all this was in the small print, I missed it, and it was tough to find, having booked through Kayak. Won't be duped again. Goodbye, Frontier."
Cons: "The seats are absolutely terrible."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and landing excellent."
Cons: "Bag fees. Narrow seats and seat trays."
Pros: "Landing was smooth, so good pilot"
Cons: "Flight delayed, extra charge for many things, seat was hard and uncomfortable, no entertainment available"
Pros: "Didn't like the "bait and switch " tactics Feontier does. Having to pay for a seat assignment and for brining a bag was ridiculous. The total cost of round trip seat assignment and bag charges was $122.00!!! This add-on was never mentioned in the price shown on Kayak's site. This add-on was an extra 31% of the "advertised" price shown on Kayak! This important information should have been mentioned on the comparative quote given so a more realistic price comparison decision could be made. I won't be using Frontier again."
Pros: "Enjoyed the crew and their jovial nature. Very friendly all around. Prices are great, but alas you get what you pay for in the end."
Cons: "The seats are extremely cramped. Granted I'm a bit of a bigger person the super small guy next to me couldn't keep from jabbing me with their elbow or bumping knees on occasion. There's also minimal leg room and almost not enough space to be able to get something out of the bag you put under the seat in front of you. On both flights I was on the "air conditioner" didn't seem to work. As in it put out air but it was not cool air. On the return flight we ended up having to wait over an hour to get our baggage at an airport that was significantly smaller that the one we had flown into before."
Cons: "Not family friendly, too many upcharges, terrible plane, food, seats, hot, dry, expensive"
Cons: "Baggage prices was not clear... I feel that it needs to be stated clearly that carry on luggage is to be paid for at departure..."
Pros: "Low price"
Cons: "Could not buy sandwich on plane. I was hungry all day."
Pros: "the plain didn't crash when landing, barely"
Cons: "the entire experience"
Cons: "Your check in on line is too confusing. Too much advertising mixed in with the check in process. Your food and beverage service SUCKS. No snacks or drinks unless you pay. Prices are rediculas for a drink. One little bag of peanuts or crackers and a soda is not too much to ask. We already pay too much for the ticket and luggage fees now we have to pay for a snack and drink. This may be my last frontier flight. And when are you going to get a better boarding system so I don't have to crawl across two people to get to my seat??"
Cons: "extra fees for everything!!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Start with paying for a carry-on, which made this "cheap" flight as expensive as a better airline. And paying for a seat assignment?! Didn't get a chance to experience paying for water onboard, as the entire flight was cancelled. Thanks to their lack of connection to other airlines, they couldn't get us where we were going prior to our RETURN date. So our lodging, car rental, etc all were completely wasted, at our expense - no vacation, but still had to pay for it. "Nothing we can do, sorry, it's the weather..." Really?! Weather explains a delay, not torpedoing the entire vacation. This airline is the absolute pits."
Pros: "I'm typically on the Thursday flight from SFO to ORD. For the most part the flight has departed on time and arrived into Chicago early or ahead of scheduled arrival. The seats and space is comfortable. The price is also very competitive over all. The planes have generally been clean. I like the early flight time from SFO and option to arrive into ORD at a reasonable hour."
Cons: "Flight crew is generally rude, and unfriendly. You can notice the difference in professionalism between the flight crew on American Air or Virgin than Frontier. The take off/and landing is not the smoothest, and the navigation through turbulence is poor. The customer service agents at the airports have been rude. I was in the airport security line for over an hour. I had asked an Customer Service rep for help that was walking by to avoid missing my flight. The person ignored me and continued walking. The service charge for carry on is not favorable. I dislike arriving early into Chicago and having to wait on the run way for over 15-20 min before we can get to a gate. Defeats the early arrival."
Pros: "attendants were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "would like some reading materials since they don't have entertainment anymore."
