Pros: "Half of the flight was empty. I asked of I could move to the row behind. I was told that was premium seating and I didn’t pay for that. I didn’t appreciate being addressed like that. And did ot really matter when nonoe is sitting there or plenty of other seats."
Cons: "She could have just let me sit there. I should have been told that the seat didn’t recline when the ticket was pirchase."
Pros: "I always enjoy Alaska but this was another level. I was horribly late and still processing at security with 10mins until take off and the guy at the gate called me to see where I was - gave me mins to make it - which I did - just.. I was traveling to San Diego to meet my family for the weekend - I would’ve been in severe trouble had I missed the flight. Thanks Alaska!!"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Flight got delayed I sign up to get a text msg Incase flight got delayed, but what’s the point of getting a text when your already at the airport?"
Pros: "Seats were decently comfy. Good entertainment selection."
Cons: "Delayed almost 2 hours"
Cons: "Delay Part not available"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "No food offered but I usually don’t eat food but some passengers were asking about the food service"
Cons: "Paid for and reserved a premium seat 6 weeks before flight but got reassigned to a non-premium seat upon check-in. I had to call customer care for a refund of the premium upgrade. No more live TV unlike the old Virgin America."
Cons: "Flight was late!"
Pros: "Leather seats"
Cons: "Narrow aisles"
Cons: "They cancelled my 5:30 pm flight and text me that they put me on a 6a.m. flight the next morning without offering me a hotel or anything. I had to make new arrangements myself and the only option was to fly out earlier in the day and lose a day of sightseeing and time with family that I made the trip for in the first place. I had to race to the airport to get there in time. It ruined our trip."
Pros: "TSA pre-cleared me so I didn't even have to take off my shoes and there wad no one else in line in front of me. Alaska Airlines has comfortable seats with lots of leg room. We didn't get fed but there were many choices of movies and t.v. shows to watch."
Pros: "Great entertainment system, great selection of movies. Comfortable and well kept up plane."
Cons: "Controls for entertainment system were often broken. Flight boarded late. Few vegan snacks available."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Our seats did not recline - this was a red-eye flight so not seats that do not recline is a problem. The plane was very cold and we kept our jackets on but it was still too cold. The flight attendant said it was warmer in the center of the plane. That's great for them but didn't help us since we were not seated in the middle."
Pros: "The crews spilled coffee on me and my purse.....made my LV bag so smelly"
Pros: "Crew was great, dealt with angry customers on delays well"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour due to booking too many on the same gate. And late planes"
Cons: "If there was a less than one star that is what they deserve. SFO flight was late. They gave away my seat on my connection to Kalispell. They basically blamed me for being late and not being there on time. Two others from my flight were allowed to make the connection but told me that they gave my seat away because I was late. We all showed up at the same time from the late flight. I talked to 3 people including customer service and did not get a single “I’m Sorry”. Do they not communicate with each other when a flight is late and they have passengers for connections running late? They told me they don’t talk. The best they can do is put me standby for 9:30 flight and if I cannot get on that flight I have to wait until morning. My daughter is in a competition tomorrow morning and thanks to Alaska Airlines I’m going to miss it. I’m sitting here writing this review, paying for a dinner I should not be paying for and probably searching out a hotel room until morning when I can catch a flight. Unbelievable the lack of empathy."
Pros: "Everything in Alaska’s control went great. The passengers not as much."
Pros: "I had an aisle seat with no one in the middle seat next to me. Very little turbulence over The Rockies. Movie selections poor...same as back in March and it is now July."
Cons: "Flight arrived at 12:05 a.m. rather than 10:45 p.m. flight path went to Charlotte N.C. and then to Dulles..strange. Due to heavy traffic or weather conditions?"
Pros: "The mood lighting on the plane."
Cons: "Not applicable; everything about this flight was great!"
Pros: "Like having movies to watch."
Pros: "There is nothing about this flight that my girlfriend and I liked. This was the worst experience with an airline either of us have ever experienced."
Cons: "We didn't like that we were delayed so long that we missed our connecting flight. We were delayed upwards of 3.5 hours and watched a flight going to the same place that was supposed depart 1 hour after us, and it left 30 minutes before us."
Pros: "Alaska is great as always and try to fly with them when traveling!"
Pros: "The airline offered food and drinks for free in spite of the low price, inwas pleasantly surprised"
Pros: "I really love the customer service , I make a phone call to update my flights and they were really helpful."
Pros: "Opportunity to upgrade to First Class made the 4 hour flight so comfortable. Excellent attentive and friendly flight attendants ... warm cookies!!!"
Pros: "A row of seats all to myself. On time departure and arrival. Smooth flight. Super polite and friendly crew."
Cons: "If I have to pick something, maybe the chatty woman behind me but that's not the Airlines fault."
Pros: "It was a pleasant enough flight. Planes are just very crowded and cramped these days, so not really Alaska's fault."
Pros: "Real tray tables! A magazine! Power jacks!"
Cons: "Waiting for a gate agent so they could open the door in Seattle."
Cons: "1 hour delay. I asked. Front desk said it was due to sfo fog. Me: Isn't it 2017? They have radars now; I have flown from Boston under severe snow storms. Yes. I have."
Cons: "Waiting in front of the gate for one and a half our after the initial boarding time in uncertainty. If the flight is delayed please tell us in advance, not let us hover around the boarding gate waiting and waiting."
Pros: "We love Alaska airlines they are usually very easy to work with and provide direct flights to where we want to go to staff is friendly and courteous and they run on time the planes are comfortable and in good shape."
Cons: "They over booked our flight. This is never been a problem traveling with them before. I did not check in 24 hours ahead of time. But there's never been a need to. We actually got to the airport almost 3 hours ahead of time and I had a seat and my wife didn't. Rather than being able to get to the airport and relax we were left in a state of turmoil about whether or not we would get on the flight or not. I can't drive so we need to be on the flight together and we wanted to fly together"
Pros: "There was a huge delay due to weather. The plane didn't take off until almost 2am, however the crew kept everyone up to date and did everything they could. Upon arrival I had an apology email from Alaska with a discount, this amazed me as usually airlines don't offer you anything when the delay isn't "mechanical", and even then you usually have to complain. I felt this made Alaska's customer service memorable as they went above and beyond."
Cons: "The seats were small and cramped."
Pros: "The two flight attendants in the aft cabin were an absolute delight.They made the flight a great experience."
Cons: "The captain announced we would arrive early in Seattle and we were in fact late."
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "no complains"
Pros: "This flight was fine. It wasn't really anything to write home about - nobody went above and beyond; nothing was terrible. It could have been better, though. The flight actually landed a bit early, which was nice since it was a bit of a late flight."
Cons: "Pretzels. The in-flight snack was pretzels, which is innocuous and also super boring. Also, no entertainment to speak of."
Pros: "Helpful and attentive crew"
Pros: "Crew was super amazing and friendly! Very good service also!"
Cons: "No seat back entertainment.."
Cons: "Aircraft was too warm. Needed more air!"
Cons: "The entire time there was a clogged bathroom smell coming in waves. The crew was forgetful of requests. Not a pleasant flight."
Pros: "Crew and service were outstanding"
Cons: "Good taste perhaps...?"
Cons: "Just a bunch of weather delays because of the bad storms. I did not like the selection of movies and tv shows on the delta flight. So I just listened to podcast in my phone. But other than that everything was great."
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "The plane was very hot."
Pros: "compared with other airlines they were just OK"
Cons: "everything"
Pros: "The crews were very fast and efficient. The Dinner was good but the breakfast was very basic."
Cons: "The seat was so crammy and disgustingly uncomfortable"
Pros: "Check in person was very helpful in rerouting our flight."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3-1/2 hours. The gate crew booked us in another flight but did not issue a ticket, so after transferring to another terminal, we were sent back to the Delta terminal to be issued a ticket to a third airline since we already missed the second flight. Then, they lost our luggage"
Pros: "Seats are fine. Ordering system is up to date."
Cons: "After the first two hours of my flight (which I sleep through) I couldn’t buy a drink a soda or anything."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "More water offered by crew"
Cons: "The fact the the toilette was kitty cornered in the mid cabin bathroom is a joke on modern society."

Pros: "The Delta crew was great."
Pros: "My seat didn't recline"

Cons: "Restrooms were dirty"
Pros: "Nice people"
Cons: "Waiting at gate in KC"
Pros: "Nice employees and service"
Cons: "Seat room"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "The plane was hot"
Pros: "Call back service was best part."
Cons: "Booked ticket through venture card points. This meant that the email address and phone number to contact us in the event of changes was mediocre information. I was informed from Tripit that the flight was delayed, not by Delta. Reservation personnel took logical course of action to find new flight for connection that we could make because of delayed initial flight. I would recommend that they first see if there is an earlier initial flight that the customer could make, then look at finding later connecting flights. We found out about delay 8 hours prior, so we had plenty of time to get to the airport earlier. Total delay required me to take additional day off of work."
Pros: "Made the best of a overcrowded messy airport"
Cons: "Didnt fly from San Francisco to Atlanta"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Attendant probably trying to be funny"
Pros: "Sky Lounge at SFO and onboard entertainment"
Pros: "Once aboard, flight went without a hitch and flight crew was attentive"
Cons: "The inflight entertainment options need to be expanded - I've run out of movies that I want to watch!!!"
Cons: "Delta airlines has very poor costumer service. THE WORST I HAVE EXPERIENCED. I wasn't the only one feeling this way, I witness a couple people fighting on the phone like me. When my 1st flight was delayed I asked to be rebooked then and the delta employee insisted that I would make my connection. I didn't make it. This is not all. I could have gotten to a near city several hours after but on the same day, but the mediocrecy of this employes did not allow me to get there until the next day at 7 am. Happy new year to me. This two women (or one of them) on the phone, lied to me. There was an option to get me here and one of them failed to do their job right AND LIED TO MY FACE ON THE PHONE. Just unacceptable. I will sue them, I had an under age waiting for me in Cancun and a pet with me!. With no food or access to do its necessities. AND THERE WAS AN OPTION THAT "they missed" on porpuse."

Pros: "The new Delta planes have great leg room for tall people even in coach."
Cons: "Asked for hot tea but what I got was barely tepid."
Pros: "Delta was smart with boarding early once they realized everyone had cleared security. Flight took off on-time and arrived early. The crew was excellent and exuded energy although it was the end of the day."
Cons: "I ordered a special asian vegetarian meal and it was just plain horrible. I had to settle for the cookie. It's nice that they serve a complimentary meal on the red eye flight but the quality of the food was bad. Entertainment options were also limited although they had some recent box office entries from last year. The leg room also wasn't great but that's expected in economy I guess."
Pros: "Excellent trip. Provided ample food snacks and drinks."
Cons: "I tried to get a seat and it was so hard, i couldn't do an online check in and once at the airport, no one could help me."
Pros: "Painless"
Cons: "Price of food"

Pros: "Good crew, good and safe flight. Thank you!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "THE TEMPERATURE WAS FREEZING. THE COLDEST FLIGHT IVE EVER BEEN ON AND IVE BEEN ON A LOT. IT FELT LIKE IT WAS 30-40 DEFGREES."
Cons: "The delay was horrible and the captain said it was because they needed extra sleep. I found this offensive as i was trying to complete a very long trip and was exhausted."

Of course the hotel only take you until 12pm so I spend so many hours in the airport waiting for re ticketing they told us to be at 6pm we wait and I got my ticket leaving at 9.45pm but the crew come one hour and half late. From Panama to Lima flight was late . I had a conference very important to be Saturday morning, I lost my investment and relationships with the company I was going to start a business there excuse was they couldn’t relay on my punctuality, honestly. I got there more than a day and half LATE. If you ask me how was my trip I will tell you horrible and I can’t recommend anybody, this company doesn’t have any personality at all"
Cons: "My 10:00 p.m. flight was canceled so I had to spend the night trying to sleep in the airport. Have you ever had to do that? Not fun."
Cons: "No food provided"
Cons: "Seat was too small"
Pros: "Good pilot"
Cons: "Everything else and being really late"
Pros: "Departure was on time. Surprisingly, had row to myself, allowed for more leg room. Flight itself was smooth."
Cons: "One beverage service only. My flight to Sf had two services which included free pretzels. Attendant did not return down aisle to check on passengers after first beverage service. Seats of plane in both directions for non stop flights very uncomfortable. With no lean back seats hard to find good sleep position. I tend to sleep through early morning flights."
Pros: "Boarding quickly"
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "no legroom"
Pros: "Overall service"
Cons: "Couldn't sell us snack during regular service (we were at front of economy cabin) and had to wait to almost end of flight."

Cons: "Length of Flight"
Pros: "I likedthe ease of ticketing, well-organized boarding procedures and flying on a soon-to-be retired 747."

Pros: "Very smooth fligh and very friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "The seats were extremely crammed and there were no movies or shows without purchase"
Cons: "12+ hour flight with no working outlet to charge phone or headphones. When I asked to move to a seat that had a charger, they basically said no - even though there were about 20 open seats in the next "economy class" level. So for 6 hours, after my phone died, I basically stared at the wall and then had no phone to assist with my directions or hotel reservations once we landed. Food was not good. Plane was old, and had a few random screens playing a movie that kept freezing and had to be restarted."
Pros: "Exceptional service by the flight attendants."
Pros: "Boarding Crew Leg room Entertainment"
Cons: "Snacks"
Cons: "Flight was canceled. Rescheduled on next morning on economy class even though the original tickets booked for business class. No hotel, food voucher, etc. were provided blamed on the weather condition even though the bad weather was 1-2 days ago, and on the day of departure it was air traffic control problems which was stated in cancellation email."
Pros: "We toured the Boeing plant in Everett (Seatle.) I wish I had bought a T-shirt I saw in the gift shop. It read, "If it ain't Boeing, I ain't going.""
Cons: "Except in the row right behind 1st Class, the seats are kinda crammed (in.) On a commercial on one flight, during the spiel about safety, the movie screen showed about 5 or 6 cabin attendants putting up their trays in prep for landing. Tey all leaned forward as far as they could to reach their trays. I looked around. I could reach my tray with my arms at my sides. If the actual airplane had had it'w seats spaced apart as in the movie, the plane would have been fully loaded with some 35 passengers. I forgot what airline it was, maybe yours?"
Pros: "No delays. No problems"
Cons: "There should be more free food."
Pros: "American Airlines"
Cons: "Dear United Airlines, It is my dearest wish that reading the following inflicts upon you at least a fraction of the stress, frustration, and pain that I have been through traveling with you today- you absolutely abhorrent excuse for a company. Due to your incomparable incompetence my arrival was inexcusably delayed almost 12 hours. An account follows: For a company who's customer service is already hanging by a very thin thread you would think that you would be doing everything to make your flights as smooth and pleasant as possible. Shall I elaborate on the utter frustration and boredom of being trapped in the San Francisco airport facing not one, not two, but what became SEVEN delays? Delays that have been caused by runway maintenance- a condition which someone in your company would have known about well before I got to the airport and that you simply did not plan for. A almost FOUR HOUR delay that could have been easily avoided if you just had things together and scheduled your planes around the affected runways. And let's not forget the additional delay caused when your flight crew simply couldn't be found to come to the gate so we could start getting underway! But no, I think the absolutely outstanding quintessential experience that defines flying with United airlines is this: After the above delays myself and my fellow passengers were finally able to board our flight- only to be told by the captain that there would be another brief delay while we waited for ANOTHER crew member because one of the pilots was near the end of their union hours. We sit on the plane stuck for another 20 minuets or so, only to be told they can't find anyone, and can we please get off the plane because our WHOLE FLIGHT is CANCELED. The kiosk I get to try and fix this is uncrowded but understaffed and run by clearly undertrained employees. The ones I'm dealing with keep having to ask each other for help, and give advice/plans that contradict one another. One of theme even takes what seems to be a personal call while 'assisting' me. When I finally get ahold of a supervisor I have to plead to get the next flight out of this godforsaken place, which I am reluctantly given as its with one of your competitors. Talking with other customer and airport staff is sounds very much like you are delaying/canceling flights for your own personal gain or at least not correcting flights around the situation to squeeze more money from the situation) it becomes quite clear that you are not only still incapable of accepting any real measure of accountability but entirely disgracefully unorganized.  Almost 12 hours later I do finally make it home- thanks to American Airlines.  Only to have the utter displeasure of one last interaction with United wherein when I pick up my bag your employees insist that I was delayed due to the weather and it wasn't your fault. It was entirely absolutely your fault."
Cons: "Was seated next to an obese woman and had to share my seat with her because of her size. I paid full price for a seat but only got to use 75% of it for a 5 hour long red eye flight. Very uncomfortable and very unfair"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "The gate in Newark was a dump and the boarding process was chaotic"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment to make the flight go by quicker and the comfortability of the seats."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."
Cons: "Choppy"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and polite. Service was prompt and excellent"
Cons: "Excessively long layovers. I came home with 3 broken ribs and had to endure a 11 hour layover in Japan and another 6 hour layover in San Francisco."
Pros: "The free internet and movies"
Cons: "The delayed flight"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane didn't leave until 2.5 hours after expected departure time and we never got an actual reason why. This also made me miss my connecting flight so I had to spend an additional 6 hours in the airport waiting."
Pros: "Free new release movies available for free. Pretty good for a domestic flight. Lots of choices to choose from. Staffs were friendly, helpful, and attentive."
Cons: "No spaces left for carry-on luggage, even if I was able to put mine away. I felt bad for those after me."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats with no leg room."
Pros: "okay"
Cons: "okay because it was short"
Pros: "The view and legroom was nice."
Cons: "I collect disability each month so I am on a very tight budget. The Spanish speaking woman that pushed my wheelchair told me that I can bring my water bottles full of water through the metal detectors. I asked if she could take me somewhere to pour them out and refill them on the other side. They threw them away at the metal detector. So I had to buy a new bottle for my medicine that I have to take. You would think she would have got it by me carrying these bottles around but nope. She actually said to me that I can give her gratuity now if I wanted. I gave her $1. She then replied in a sarcastic voice " Thankyou you are soooo generous. I don't like feeling obligated to tip somebody because I am disabled and have a bullet in my head."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Same.as above."
Pros: "I missed my flight and the front counter was very, very cheerful at 8pm and helpful. I was able to get on the last flight. There was no food or entertainment, but it's a short flight. I didn't really mind. Just happy to go home in comfort with my upgraded exit aisle seat and no one next to me."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by over 4 hours, there was no clarity on what was going on. They made us change aircrafts, the ground staff was mean at best. In spite of the 4 hour wait they didn't even bother serving food or made any announcement to handle passenger anxiety and concerns. Delays are sometimes unavoidable and I have had experiences in the past but none that was handled this unprofessionally"
Pros: "It was a routine cross country flight! Smooth boarding, deplaning and good service from the Crew."
Pros: "I made it to the airport safe and sound."
Cons: "It was a complete cluster as if no one knew what was going on. Once we were finally able to board we sat on the plane for an additional 30 minutes or so because the air conditioning went out on the plan and we all had to sit there in the scalding heat while they fixed it."
Cons: "My luggage got soaked in overhead compartment. Signed rare book was ruined by another passengers' luggage that leaked liquid and soaked my bag and contents inside."
Pros: "The professional services"
Cons: "Cramped leg space"
Cons: "the first flight was delayed and i arrived at the destination 8 hours after the scheduled time and completely missed the appointment. Very disappointed."
Pros: "I liked the leg room and assigned seating."
Cons: "More information on drinks during the flight and the charges for backpacks."
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"
Cons: "Medical emergency once on board, delayed the departure from Denver. While no fault of the airlline, as a passenger onboard, waiting in the back of the plane. Some type f overhead announcement being made would have alleviated any undue conversations between passengers, wonderment of departure delay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 hrs while other flights to Denver kept taking off"
Pros: "Always on time, frontiers gates are always closest to terminal."
Cons: "Comfort of seats but for a short flight it's fine."
Pros: "Low fare! I pack light, so I could fit everything I need into a "personal item" and saved on bags. Boarding went pretty smoothly."
Cons: "Seats do not recline! Bad news on my redeye flight. There were 4 dogs on this plane that I saw. Possibly more. Is there a limit to allergen producing animals on one plane?"
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."
Cons: "Carry on bag cost of $45."
Cons: "I purchased the "perks" upgrade and then when I tried to put my jacket in the overhead storage the attendant told me I couldn't do that and that I had to hold it for the flight... never mind the overhead storage wasn't full. That's what an additional $58 gets you. Then the pilot didn't want to fly the plane because the soap dispenser wasn't functional in the forward lavatory. Seriously! We sat on the plane 35 minutes while he waited for an out of order decal for the lavatory door. Dumbest flight crew I ever encountered. I'm going back to United."
Pros: "Simple flight"
Cons: "Bumper approach coming into Denver. No snacks or beverages"
Pros: "They oversold the flight and bumped us from it. We didn't make it home for the holidays."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled!!!"
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."
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."
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"
Cons: "I use to love Frontier back in 2006-2008. I purposely booked the trip on Frontier as they were known to be clean and comfortable. Much to my surprise the plane was very very small, the seats did not recline at all (horrible for an overnight flight) and the trays were so small I couldn't even fit my laptop on it."
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: "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: "Crew and pilots were excellent - good communication to passengers."
Cons: "Having to pay extra for carry-on luggage. Having to pay extra for non-alcoholic beverages. Boarding at the gate completely stopped with zero explanation from the gate employees."
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."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and airline didn't do anything to help serve its customers get on another flight until nearly 24 hours later."
Cons: "Charged for every additional thing so the cost of the ticket was not true."
Cons: "Flight was 3 hrs late...plane dirty"
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"
Cons: "The Extra Fee's. I thought i was getting a good deal when I found my flight, but adding on an extra 170 for bags and paying for seating was a shock. I could have saved if I had chosen another airline.."
Cons: "The seats, the service and having to pay extra for everything!"
Cons: "A 40 minute layover turned into a 5 hour layover in Denver. Frontier did not reimburse for the inconvenience, and sent a inadequate $50.00 coupon towards my next Frontier flight IF USED WITHIN 90 DAYS!! That was an insult, not a good faith gesture. They nickel and dime for everything, and take poor accountability for their errors."
Pros: "Nothing good to say."
Cons: "The boarded us twice and deplaned us twice. The airplane had mechanical problems and took them more than 12 hours to fix, because it was missing a part that was going to take them more than 8 hours to get in our airport (not sure where the part was coming from that took them that long). After fixing it the crew couldn't fly because of federal regulations that states the crew can only work for 8 h. After this whole ordeal, my flight ended up cancelled."
Cons: "When I arrived at the Frontier desk and checked in I let them know that I was disabled and was not able to make the walk to the departure gate. They did nothing to assist me and finally after 40 minutes an airport employee that witnessed this borrowed a wheelchair from Delta and got me to my flight. I was embarrassed and shamed by this airline. Andrew Darden"
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: "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: "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: "Good price, early arrival"
Cons: "Rude service at checkin by Keisha and cabin temperature during boarding was in the 80s"
Pros: "The crew was awesome."
Cons: "Extra hidden fees for baggage, food, and seating. Next time I would opt for the more expensive flight for more comfortable ammenities."
