Airline reviews

Pros: "Yes. Very hospitable!"
Cons: "I enjoyed everything; it did seem passengers were crowding the bins in slots that weren't there's. But I don't hold that against the airline."

Cons: "The flight got delayed twice, and the gate got changed twice. This is very frustrating"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "If iris on time"

Pros: "On time. Nice crew. Comfortable smooth flying plane."
Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "Arrived at destination safely"
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for over two hours before taking offf, with periodic vague updates from the pilot that changed scenarios from possibly having to disembark and change planes to everything being ok..."

Cons: "We never made it, missed our flight we are flying backwards to get home, airline didn’t provide hotel, they did Uber. And flights back home. So silver lining I guess"

Pros: "Our Airbus plane was from the Virgin fleet. The interiors are different from the Alaska Airbus fleet. Seats are more comfortable, there's an in-seat entertainment system, and wifi is different - it's Viasat not Gogo, and it's just $6 per flight - much cheaper than Gogo. However there's no in-seat power like on the Alaska planes, and the entertainment system doesn't allow you to view on your own device like Alaska's planes do. Hopefully they can combine the best of both as they merge service."
Cons: "No food options even through flight is 90 minutes. Should at least offer the fruit and cheese platter."

Pros: "On time departure. Early arrival."
Cons: "Lack of information on correct departure gate. Incorrect information on baggage carrousel."

Pros: "Awesome staff and plane. I Miss virgin!! well done to Alaska for keeping the spirit alive."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crews were helpful. Flights were on time. Snacks were good."
Cons: "The screen says to Portland but it was actually for a Los Angeles flight. I almost boarded in the wrong flight."

Cons: "No snack was offered"

Cons: "I put my bag on recheck at SFO and had four hours before my flight to Portland. My bag did not show up. Not sure who screwed that up."

Pros: "The plane was late. I was tired"

Pros: "The crew were great, security at the airport took over an hour to get through so I arrived at the gate 10minsbefire takeoff. The crew were great in getting me on board and checking my luggage was still there t"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff"

Pros: "I was able to get an earlier flight for a reasonable cost."
Cons: "Airplane food....what's new about that?"

Cons: "On bag should be free!"

Pros: "The attendant who helped me was extremely helpful in arranging for me to be on the next flight to Portland, out of San Jose. She called and arranged for a shuttle to pick me up in San Francisco and bring me to San Jose at no cost, and provided me with a flex ticket so that if I missed the next flight I could be on the subsequent one. (I did in fact make it -- just barely -- onto the 11:15 flight out of San Jose, so when all was said and done I landed in Portland about three hours later than originally planned. As it was a very short trip, I'm quite glad that I only lost the time that I did.) Thank you, Diane (Diana?), for all your help."
Cons: "I had originally been scheduled for an 8:45 am flight out of San Francisco. As I was leaving for the airport at 6:30 I received a text saying that my flight had been delayed until 10:08. I ended up arriving at the airport around 9:00 and making it over to the service desk around 9:20, at which point I was told by one of the attendants that the flight had left at 9:18 and I should have been at the airport two hours early. There was no acknowledgment by this particular attendant that I had been given wrong information by the airline that had resulted in my missing the flight."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "What flight only offers water? Where is my goddammed refund?"

Cons: "Didn’t get on the flight at all, flight was canceled in sfo and the. bumped around for another eight hours"

Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "nothing to speak of"

Pros: "The plane was late in arriving and we were hard pressed to make our connecting flight. A stewardess made an announcement requesting everyone without a connecting flight remain seated until those of us with tight schedules got off. Most everyone was courteous and waited. Thus we, and many others, were able to make our connecting flight. We really appreciated the assistance."

Cons: "The idea for tablets as in-flight entertainment is one that I hope does not gain too much traction."

Pros: "The crew was amazing! Nicest flight attendants"

Pros: "The staff was polite and helpful."
Cons: "Some mechanical issues delayed the flight. we had to board from a ramp/walk way. Not sure how much of any of it was within their control."

Pros: "The in flight cookies were deliscious"
Cons: "I arrived to my gate about a half hour before boarding was set to start. An employee greeting me recommended I use the restroom because the gate was down an elevator and in a portion of the airport that did not have accessible restrooms or food options. She cautioned against returning late later than ten minutes before boarding. I returned about ten minutes before the scheduled boarding, only to be told there would be a delay, which wouldn't be an issue except that it took over an hour and sounded like a standard, foreseeable safety process due to the plane being out of the country prior to our flight. Then we were shuttled to the plane on a frigid bus, which at one point stopped so suddenly several passengers and baggages were sent to the floor. And then, after finally taking off, the in flight wifi did not work. After landing in Portland, there was a 45 minute delay because "a vehicle is parked in our gate." Ultimately, we flew safe and sound, but the discomfort caused by the cold bus transports, poor bus driving, foreseeable delays, and a parked vehicle was really unacceptable. After this experience, it will be hard to choose Alaska Airlines in the future."

Pros: "Smooth flight lovely flight attendant"

Pros: "The crew on the flight was very friendly. Pilot was very informative."
Cons: "Flight was relocated to a different terminal."

Pros: "Wine flys free is amazing!!!"

Pros: "Service was excellent as always. I was cold and reluctant to say anything. Seemed like lots were asking for hot drinks and bundled up so the stewardess asked the pilot to crank up the heat. (No one had requested this!) At that moment I realized, many of us are afraid due to recent things on the news. I am a frequent and long-term traveller so if I felt it, you can be sure others do too. It is an industry problem, not your fault, but Alaska has to address it. Even if people don't know that they are angry or afraid, they are going to be reactive--aggressive or passive and/or resistant.... I would encourage you to bring the issue to the surface and remind your travellers on every flight that they can expect excellent service, pleasant responsiveness. Say something or do something that gets at the idea that the Alaska staff is protective of each passenger. One idea would be to have the stewardess remind people of the call light and encourage passengers to use it if they have any questions or concerns, or come see them in the back when it is safe to leave the seat."

Pros: "The prices were decent and the personnel at the airport check in counter were friendly and helpful. The flight was short but it was nice to have the seat-back chargers to recharge my phone."
Cons: "The onboard crew seed a little stiff. They were very selective - the two flight attendants in first class & coach - with whom they greeted good morning / hello. I watched this from my seat in disappointment. I needed to ask for a seat extender as I'm currently recovering from surgery and needed a little room around the bandages and I had to ask several times even though there was not a lot of pre-flight activity. They were standing around in the aisle. I make note of this type of behavior because I fly frequently for work on a variety of airlines and this is my first experience with Alaska Air."

Pros: "The crew were very kind and helpful."

Cons: "I was asked to change seats twice. The first time before we boarded, to accommodate a family. That was totally fine with me. Then I was asked a second time as I was boarding to accommodate a couple. Of course I agreed again, but it was a little much."

Pros: "Overall a good flight in and out"

Cons: "plane didn't arrive on time, missed flight"

Pros: "Free wi-fi and movies on own device on the way from PDX-SFO but it did it work as advertised on the way back."

Pros: "I lost the flight!!!"

Pros: "My flight was timely and the crew were kind."

Cons: "No complaints:)"

Pros: "On time. Efficient. Clean new plane."
Cons: "Their new 737-900 was stripped-down! No complimentary entertainment system at all! NOTHING. Instead, they expect the passengers to use their own smart phones. The only option is passengers have to give up their private information to GoGo to use the system. Don't do it! To add salt to that wound, customers have to pay to see a film. Don't do it! That experience alone made the flight a dud. All I can say is, thank heavens it was a short flight."

Pros: "Friendly, professional flight crew. Enough leg room."
Cons: "Nothing, it was great"

Pros: "On time, no delays"

Pros: "I arrived early"

Pros: "The gate was easy to find, the staff was sweet, and we arrived in Portland within an hour and 15 minutes!"
Cons: "I wish they gave better snacks than pretzels."

Pros: "Everything was great."

Pros: "I liked that we got there on time and everyone was nice."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and completely professional. The really made the trip, though short, very enjoyable."
Cons: "They no longer serve the Fruit Plate on the menu for this flight."

Pros: "On time and comfortable."

Cons: "Had unknown jump grade to much better seats No explanation given Too bad it wasn’t on a 6 hour flight"

Pros: "The boarding was quick and the plane departed early."
Cons: "I had an exit row seat (21G). The seat felt like a church pew and the right armrest was lower than normal since it was mounted on the exit door. This was by far the most uncomfortable flight I've had. My back started to hurt even before the plane took off."

Cons: "It was the last row, could not sleep on it"

Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "Out of everyone’s control Mother Nature"

Cons: "Loved it!"

Pros: "Cleanliness. Safety. Friendly."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Delightful experience except at SFO checkin."

Pros: "Crew great....moved passengers around near us for Covid related separation."
Cons: "Cramped.....too many seats in too small of a plane....I'm 6ft / 190 lbs"

Cons: "Zero PPE or social distancing by crew"

Cons: "Sat on the tarmac way to long. Updates from crew weren’t frequent enough."

Pros: "A box was under my feet, not sure what it was. A part of plane! ATL - EZE uncomfortable Crew great in spite of ongoing turbulence!"

Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Everything else"

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."

Cons: "My suitcase was broke at some point and also items in my suitcase."

Pros: "compared with other airlines they were just OK"
Cons: "everything"

Pros: "Crew could have been better."

Cons: "Connection at Schiphol often tricky;"

Pros: "I liked the crew."
Cons: "I didn’t appreciate the women at the boarding counter. She had a very bad attitude and was not approachable."

Cons: "The fact the the toilette was kitty cornered in the mid cabin bathroom is a joke on modern society."

Pros: "Quick boarding process"
Cons: "Wifi stopped working halfway"

Cons: "Great"

Cons: "Flight was delayed, for unkown reasons."

Cons: "Boarding was like a cattle call....my headrest was broken so couldn’t sleep upright but face down....seemed like a plane that large would have more bathrooms"

Cons: "The sits are uncomfortable"

Pros: "Nice Airbus plane. Due to thunderstorm in Dallas, pilot not able to leave DAL to come to fly the plane in LAX on time. We delayed around 45 minutes. Otherwise, crews were professional and efficient. Excellent movies choices."
Cons: "Boarding announcement in SFO was bad. No one can hear what the agent announced. Random sequence of boarding with confusion. In LAX, we supposed to go to a different terminal by a bus. There is no guidance out of gate to assist passengers that transfer to get on the right gate on the right bus. In AUS, there is not any announcement for luggage belt. An announcement would be helpful to new arrivals to this airport."

Pros: "Cheese plate"
Cons: "TheyCharge me $25 for my bag and I’m at Delta sky Miles older plus the American Express platinum card holder it’s supposed to not be charged"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and hoped to make up for the pilot’s negligence."
Cons: "Boarding was weird with a lack of overhead bins and then the pilot was inconsistent with updates to safety issues. We were delayed by an hour and twenty mins and then had to wait on the tarmac for another plane to leave the gate. Feels like I wasted two hours in limbo."

Pros: "Flight was great"
Cons: "The waiting area at gate 47 is a joke. Doesn't anyone care that it was filthy and had 10 seats for passenger waiting to board their flight?"

Cons: "Call center tried moving us to later flight that was also delayed by 3 hrs despite telling us it was on time. Fortunately a gate agent moved us back to orig flight"

Pros: "I like Delta but this crew had such a shi**y attitude it was contagious. Yikes!"
Cons: "The gate staff and the flight staff. Rude"

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!!!"

Pros: "Excellent service and upgraded snacks in economy"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight schedule and the various flight options with regardss to the number of departure and return flights."
Cons: "Delta flight crew complacency and the lack of on board options. I flew first class and the food options were very limited. The crew also seem to have the attitude as though the passengers should be automatically understanding and satisfied. This was mostly on the return flight, an all male crew."

Pros: "The t.v. 's at each seat"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Too crowded and seat mate stunk like pot , flight was good because we were 20 minutes late and flight crew very nice"

Pros: "Delayed 2 hrs"

Pros: "On flight entertainment has improved greatly. There are so many choices to keep you entertained. I forgot how long I was on the plane."
Cons: "Plane food was not good. The crew were not as friendly, almost exhausted. There was one woman who was not sensitive or compassionate to my fellow seat mate. He was an older man who needed extra assistance. From the look of her face she didn't feel like helping him... as simple as helping him pour ice into his cup. Instead I helped my fellow neighbor. She might not feel comfortable helping a senior citizen but don't be so loud or make a face of disgust."

Pros: "The crew did a great job of dealing with delays beyond their control and made sure we - and our luggage - made a connecting flight."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "They say us together (we had seats apart -- even though it stated our children are 4 & 1). They gave them wings and each an extra little snack. I felt they were supportive of us."
Cons: "Paying to check our bags!! We were forced to... too much stuff traveling with kids. It sucked to have to pay $50 when Alaska airlines saw we were struggling, they checked our carry one for free to ease our time in the airport!"

Pros: "the meal was OK and they served ice cream midway between SFO and JFK."
Cons: "Late departure. Long delay getting to the get because of congestion at Terminal 4."

Pros: "Short flight with great views"
Cons: "I was not asked to check my bag, but there was no space for it so I had to take it back off after everyone boarded. No drink or food. Ground crew forgot to get bags at end of fliggt for those of us who checked at the gate. Had to wait quite a while."

Pros: "Comfort and boarding"
Cons: "Delay and food"

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the staff at Delta was nice and courteous along with being clear for boarding zone instructions. Haven't had a problem yet with Delta! Also the pilot was great at landing so it was not as jerky as some flights I have been on."
Cons: "No complaints!"

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."

Pros: "Flight very smooth.Just after landing,luggage pick up wait too long,almost after one hour later."

Pros: "Whoa, we flew Coach and had plenty of space! How marvelous to not be packed in; crew and passengers were wonderfully relaxed, and all went well despite turbulence on takeoff and landing. Great daytime flight experience with my toddler grandchild!"

Cons: "Boarding took too long - full plane and double seat booking changed 10 minutes early estimate to 20 minutes late"

"seat 3F broken in terms of recline, embarrassing for first class"

"I booked this reservation 2mo in advance with 2 lap babies. When i called to add the babies they never told me about the lap baby rule. If I would have known i would have bought my toddler her own seat no problem. They moved my seats far from each other. My babies need to sit near their mom it was a redeye. At check in the manager did us a “favor” and moved us to adjacent aisle seats… in the last row. Those seats don't recline and the constant people, flushing and talking woke the babies up all night. No one slept. The main attendant couldn’t be bothered and had a, get over it bad attitude. Oh did i mention i had a dog at my feet also?? Every time they were woken up by the bathroom (constantly) my babies would cry for their mommy and i could only hold on at a time. adjacent seats from mommy is not comforting . Why on earth would we be moved to those seats?! I know why. We were discriminated against for having babies. “Put the babies in the back.” I was a 4x a year flyer at minimum. We will NEVER fly with AA again and i will be filing a complaint. You should be ashamed of your treatment of a family and young children."

"Short connecting flight to LAX from SFO. Only thing I maybe disliked was the lack of entertainment options, but what can I expect when it’s only a small jet to LAX"

Pros: "Check-in started a bit late due to late arriving incoming flight but the crew at the gate as well as in the plane did their best to speed the process. Flight was smooth, lande ontime despite taking off nearly 20 minutes late. Captain kept us informed when, through no fault of American Airlines there was a delay at the gate. Overall well done in these trying times."
Cons: "It will be nice when things are back to normal and actual food is served on flights of 4 or more hours duration."

Pros: "Best boarding"

Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Plane was late, changed the gate on us and at 66 that's a big deal."

Cons: "The fact the my connecting flight was delayed 3 hours making us miss the last leg of the flight to Bahrain. I'll never use kayak ever again"

Cons: "Even in first class the my treat you like cattle, asked for water 3 times and it came 30 minutes later with an attitude, like she was doing me a favor. The seats are a joke for first class, literally the cheapest trim configuration an airline could purchase."

Pros: "The boarding process was very smooth and we took off early and the crew was great and then we also arrived 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Nothing could be changed."

Pros: "crew"
Cons: "The WiFi could have worked"

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: "The employees were as good as they could be, given the atrocious handling of the situation by American Airlines and its policies."
Cons: "We were 1.5 hours late leaving for an unknown reason (not weather). Then, it appeared that we didn't try and make up the lost time in the air (we also landed 1.5 hours late.) This caused a significant proportion of the passengers to miss their connecting flights. American didn't do anything to help other than offer a "discount" of about $10 off of over $100/night hotel rooms in the Philadelphia area to sleep overnight in Philadelphia. This was absolutely lousy customer service by American, and will definitely make me avoid American Airlines in the future."

Pros: "Love main cabin extra"
Cons: "Just a cookie for a 3 hour flight"

Pros: "Boarding was fast and crew was friendly."
Cons: "I was extremely uncomfortable sitting in that seat. I injured my tail bone about 4 months ago and I thought it was healed at this point, but those airplane seats made all the pain come back."

Cons: "No delays"

Cons: "It is what it is, doesn’t have to be better"

Pros: "The seat was super comfortable, because of o lot of place for legs"
Cons: "The crew sometimes seems not to be happy with the passengers"

Pros: "The crew did an excellent, professional job."
Cons: "There were problems with arrival at the gate necessitating delay and 3 gate changes for connecting flight. This was not fault of American but due to a plane breaking down at the original gate at LAX causing our plane to be rerouted to a different gate."

Pros: "seat was basic. prefer having tv screens in the seatbacks as opposed to using my tiny phone as a viewing screen."
Cons: "prefer having tv screens in the seatbacks as opposed to using my tiny phone as a viewing screen. only food available besides pretzel was pay food."

Cons: "service, flight delayed over 2 hours, missed connections, missed a whole day in europe"

Pros: "Everything ran according to schedule. Everyone was professional and nice."
Cons: "I wish all families with young children could always pre-board; that was not the case on this flight. The gate agent “let” us board with Group 4, which was at least something. No tv screens on these seats. And I really don’t like the full-volume pitch for the AA credit card. They’re trying to take advantage of a captive audience, and no one likes it."

Pros: "Overall the flight was great"
Cons: "I didn’t like the restrictions on the fare and being reminded several time with negative emails from the carrier about the restrictions."

Pros: "The flight attendance kindly asked the passengers to allow for the people on the back with very thigh connections, due to stupids delays, to deplane first, but of course almost no one listened and as soon the plane reach the gate everyone stranded up clogging the hallway. There should be more education to the passenger in general. If you don't have a connection, just stay put for an extra 5 minutes, is nothing crazy to do."
Cons: "Waiting area completely packed, now sits available at all. Delays, a delay for weather or mechanical issues is understandable, but just because too many human factors, is unfortunately."

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: "The plan was 20 minutes behind schedule on departure and to top it off they had me pick up my luggage and check in again making me miss my connection. As a result I lost my train ticket fees"

Pros: "The flight was great. Lots of movies to choose from. Food was pretty good too."
Cons: "They moved our flight around multiple times. We first had a layover in Chicago then through multiple emails and one phone call they just flew us straight to London with no layover. It all worked out it was just stressful not knowing exactly when we were flying out and if we were going to make our connecting flights. It did work out and we did make it."

Cons: "It was cancelled. Rebooked via support the whole route on to the next day. Airport AA staff is very unprofessional, they tried to put solving all problems onto customer the customer shoulders. Lost ~$500 due to the cancellation and nobody cares to compensate it. Completely disappointed about customer care."

Pros: "I was lucky enough to have some really sweet flight attendants and was surprised (though maybe I shouldn't be) that we got a small meal."
Cons: "The economy class seats are just so uncomfortable and as soon as someone puts their seat back it is difficult to see the screen in front of you without putting your seat back as well. I suppose there are worse airlines..."

Pros: "Wonderful and super friendly crew"
Cons: "Booked flight with my sister 6 months before departure, paid for both tickets at the same time to find out seat assignment not together.... that could be understable only if ticket is purchased at the last minute. We were applicable to switch with another couple who were in the same situation as us....."

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: "Delayed and no AC working..."

Pros: "The quickness at which they discovered my suitcase was missing even before I got to the luggage carousel and sent me text. The quickness at which my suitcase was found, put on another plane and returned to me the next day by noon to my home. There was nothing missing."
Cons: "That damage on my suitcase is not covered. Corner was torn 8 inches and a tear in the fabric. But it wasn't my expensive suitcase. It got caught on the carousel I sure because the paper identifying strips got caught somewhere."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seat comfort was awful. I paid more for legroom but the actual seat was narrower then others. No one told me that. So legs were fine but my hips were squeezed. Seat cushion was also minimal. The base of my back was aching before take off."

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."

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: "Everyone was so friendly and helpful, especially Ricardo at the check in desk. Our flight was delayed for 2 hours but the friendly staff made it easier to deal with the delay!"

Pros: "In flight movies were varied, with both new and international films to watch. Flight attendants were nice. Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Spent a while sitting on the plane waiting to take off because of some kind of delay, but that meant I could spend more time watching the in-flight entertainment."

Pros: "I was comfy on Philly to Venice flight, no one was sitting next to me"
Cons: "Staff at Philadelphia was rude when I asked for upgrade options the desk attendant told me " you should have booked 1st class from the beginning" in a rude and belittling demeanor."

Pros: "Flight left late, due to mechanical problems, but managed to arrive only a few minutes late"
Cons: "No food available, even though flight departed at noon"

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 was not a fan that the overhead compartment for my row was not available due to the life raft in there. I understand you have to have one on board, but I think it should be more at the emergency aisles. Also the size of the seats and the space you get is not really worth the price anymore. No matter how big or small someone is, its not comfortable. Airlines need to get back to how the seating was back in the day with great leg room and the seats are a bit wider than what it is now."

Pros: "Flights on time and entire flight was a good experience for my 18 years old son to a first flight on his own."
Cons: "Maybe a better food choices"

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!"

Pros: "Movies in flight."
Cons: "That I was rebooked and lied to at first as to why, and when getting another ticket the the ticket agent said the flight was rebook because "the crew didn't want to come to work". Not cool, I didn't react I simply got my ticket and just wemtnonw but there was no apology like they didn't care what I missed having to be rebooked I also wasn't given any sort of military discount no seats no baggage. Other airlines I've flown the past months always do something for military."

Cons: "The self check in kiosk in PHL The man working on 6/5/17 priority- First class was a total jerk. He sent me to a different desk, despite my having upgraded to 1st Class, and all his kiosk computer check in stations were EMPTY."

Cons: "My tickets ultimately were booked through Kayak/webjet. I will never book through webjet again. You can't directly speak with an agent. They never sent me my e-tickets. I couldn't download my tickets prior to arriving at the airport. It was super confusing because I couldn't figure out whether I was flying on British Airways or American Airlines. I didn't know what terminal to go to. I finally checked in with American even after they told me to go to British Airways. Next, American said that my booking was messed up such that they couldn't check my bag through. So at Chicago I had to exit the Secure area, pick up my bag from baggage check, check it back in and go back through security. I still didn't have my ticket for the chicago-barcelona leg of the trip. At American, they told be I had to exit the airport again to go to British Airways for the Chicago- Barcelona leg of the trip. Luckily, i asked another agent and she confirmed my flight was though American. It was the most confusing flight experience, I have ever had."

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."

Pros: "Headrest entertainment systems"
Cons: "Lack of comfort in the seat, pay for every little thing, departed late, 90% of all passengers seems to be lumped in "Group 6" making boarding extremely annoying. I suppose any other group costs extra."

"Great price and on time, don’t let the bad behavior customer return, restricted them for life."

Pros: "All"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The seats were fine and the plane was in good shape."
Cons: "The food is mediocre - everything has meat in it and they use tons of plastic. Also, the plane was late getting to the gate. This wouldn’t have been an issue had the pilot not decided to off board and then re onboard cargo (the commercial stuff they get paid to carry). This took about 20 minutes and then after the winds changed, he decided he could load more passengers. So despite having the doors locked and getting ready to leave the gate, they opened the doors up again and boarded more people for the next 40 minutes. So they chose to make a delayed flight even more delayed (on Christmas Eve). So we inevitably missed our connection in sydney and had to pay a change fee since it’s a different airline. Thanks for the Christmas gift United - you always know how to disappoint your passengers."

Pros: "Seats and entertainment"
Cons: "One syaffmemberrude butall not very friendly orhelpful no food to purchase on board which meant we had absolutely nothing to eat until landing not good when ad ertise that you can purchase on board also paid 50 dollars for checked bags but ihadconfirmed with your airline theywereinyheprice along of gimethecrewwalkedpast with coffee withoutaski gif wanted one"

Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew. Sufficient food, quite tasty."
Cons: "Extra charge for spirits. Only beer or wine complimentary. Poor headphones and image quality so overall entertainment mediocre."

Pros: "Stewart eas helpful"
Cons: "Nonentertainment. Sears are narrow"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Had to wait on the ground at Eugene airport for a long time with no apparent reason"

Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "No wifi or substantial snacks/dinner. Paid for bag"

Pros: "The TV shows and movie collection is good."
Cons: "Horrible food, no complimentary drinks on economy plus seats. UNITED lost my luggage again (2nd time this year)."

Cons: "Very cramped with staff who I found overbearing. Not the most pleasant experience."

Cons: "Again, a late flight. Plane not at airport yet. Haven't boarded yet!"

Cons: "Delayed for so long! 5 hrs"

Pros: "The person at the United customer service desk was able to book me on the next available flight to Reno (after missing my original flight mentioned above) quickly and efficiently. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "I was late to my original flight and the United personal that I talked to at the gate was very rude. I asked if the plane was still boarding and all she said was go to customer service. I know I gave her a questioning look because this did not answer my original question. She repeated her statement again this time pointing. I would have preferred that she tell me that the flight had finished boarding but customer service could help me get on another flight. I feel that would have been more professional. My new flight was also an hour late"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "My suitcase was broken. I will never fly United Airlines again."

Pros: "Entertainment had good choices. I was very comfortable in the chairs. The crew was overall friendly."
Cons: "Wish the entertainment came with tablets already installed instead if for purchase. Would be nice to have gluten-free options for snacks. Since my first flight was delayed and I barely made it to my connection, I had no time to grab something to eat at the airport. And being celiac, there was only a nut and fruit mix. Not enough to substitute for a meal. My biggest complaint however is with 3 hours left of the flight, i turned on the call button to request a beverage and nobody came. I waited 45 minutes, having to turn on the light 3 separate time because it automatically must have timed out. I couldn't get out of my seat due to seat belt sign. I looked back into the rear galley and 5 attendants were back there talking. Tried to get their attention. Nothing. Finally, I got up and went to get my own drinks. Being a server at hotel in waikiki, I understand that customer service is very important. And though I understand that they may have been busy and unable to answer my call, I could see that clearly was not the problem. They were just standing there and chatting. Very frustrating. Though they were friendly, they just simply weren't paying attention. I have to say in all honesty, I will not be recommending nor flying United airlines again."

Pros: "Again could not fault staff and quality of flight services, luckily space to sleep so fantastic flight."

Pros: "The boarding was fast and easy. The crew were friendly and accommodating. The entertainment was bring your own phone, tablet or computer to watch movies over wifi. We could not access our United account so we could not watch the movies, which was lame for a 5 hour flight. The food was also unpleasant as usual. You'd think a multimillion dollar airline could afford to feed people more than drinks and a cookie. What happened to the hospitality of the industry? If you came to my house for 5 hours and I gave you one cookie and a beverage maybe two you would think I was rude or down right cheap."
Cons: "The crew were wonderful. My husband was on a business trip and I was able to sit with him. The staff didn't wake me up and they were generous with the sodas."

Pros: "Unfortunately I won’t leave until morning. However I can already answer this question. I will like the fact that I’ll be seeing my only child after an entire year!"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that United Airlines took time away from us. Because she’s military I don’t get to see her as often as I’d like. I booked my trip from October 5-16 2017 and our vacation together won’t start until a day later. Some may say it’s only a day but I say different and I should be compensated for my loss as well as so many other people that were traveling with me. My overall experience with this airline was horrible! I won’t say I’d never use them again because you never say never BUT they will be my last resort!"

Pros: "I like that this flight got me from where I was to where I wanted to be and back."
Cons: "The way back took way longer then scheduled as my flight was delayed, again. I didn't get home till 3 am and had to work the next morning. Not happy about the delay. Also, I booked 8 months in advance and friends I met with on the trip got their airfare for half the price and booked only a few weeks before. They said I paid way to much, but since I do t fly much I guess I'm the sucker, cause I had no idea."

Cons: "Seats to small. But I am 6'3"" and my son traveling with me is 6'5"."

Pros: "Security Video was interesting. Seat was wide and comfortable."
Cons: "Food was tasty, but strange smell was contaminated. Announce was so fast and unclear both English and Japanese. I felt no intention to communicate."

Pros: "Nice people"
Cons: "The seats are close and there is no real food"

Pros: "Boarding was really easy"
Cons: "Not only you have to pay for checking one bag, not only you have to pay for a poor meal, you also have to bring your own device to watch a movie!"

Cons: "1. The flights within the US and Canada was delayed. 2. The United Airline staff in San Francisco told me to pick up my luggage when I get to Seattle despite of the fact that my final destination was Vancouver. I questioned the staff about this ata this seemed odd, but he insisted that I pick up my luggage in Seattle. Upon arrival to Seattle I went to the baggage claim area to find out that my luggage was already put through to the connecting airline to Vancouver. This resulted in me having to go through a long line of passengers to do all of the security checks again to enter the international airport gates. This almost resulted in me missing my connecting flight to Vancouver. The only saving grace was that the flight was delayed by another hour. 3. Changes made on my connecting flights were only given to me during my check in at Auckland. My previous booking was Auckland -San Francisco - Portland - Vancouver. The boarding pass I was given in Auckland omitted Portland and was changed to Seattle. I was never informed about this by United Airlines. 4. United Airlines website NOT allowing me to log in using my e-mail."

Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "The guy puked halfway through the flt and not one single flt attendant came even though they were serving drinks repeatedly to the dr sitting in the row in front of me. Also the flt was delayed as we waited almost an hour for people trying to connect which made me more upset since I was rebooked on that later flt because although my previous flt was there half hour before departure, we didn't have a gate to use which caused me to be 15 mins late for my original flt. Did they wait for me?! NO! I was rebooked. It's unfair that they stole an hour of life from every other passenger to accommodate a few. Back to the guy who puked, an hour after that he started shaking and grabbing his head and asking me why am I hurting his heart. Then incoherent blathering and then his last episode 20 minutes before we land in which he started hitting himself in the head saying he would die right now for his wife and how he's made mistakes. It was three separate incidents from this one passenger and not one flt attendant noticed? Yeah it was bad piled on worse stacked on top of never United ever again."

Pros: "On time! Love being in boarding group 1 or 2!"
Cons: "It's a short flight so there is not much to enjoy other than the safe flight... which is a lot!"

Pros: "The boarding was pretty good for this flight, seemed simple enough, everyone was pleasant. And I was near an exit, which offered sufficient leg room."
Cons: "I was disappointed by a few things... 1. The staff didn't much care to be there. They seemed distant and unconcerned, although their words were supportive. I just got off a flight from Seoul to SF, with United (892) and they admittedly stated that they were understaffed (which was completely fine) and their attitudes were much more supportive than that of the following team (486), a flight from SF to IAD. 2. I was surprised, that on a 5hr flight, they only offered a half bag of mixed items and two rounds of beverages. I was sure that they would feed us something. However, if it's not the policy, I get it...but I asked if they had anything I could purchase, the flight attendant points me to the menu pamphlet and says that I could choose from there. I asked for the Chilled Chicken with Slaw and she promptly lets me know that they only have cheeseburgers, a protein box and Cheese. For a person who's lactose intolerant, I was again disappointed by the service--why ask me to go to the menu, if you knew there were only three items you were offering?? So I didn't order anything. 3. The entertainment blows my mind. I've flown with you guys like 8 times this year, and the app still does not work properly, however, before every flight, someone mentions over the intercom to be sure to download the app...but if it doesn't work...why offer it? Also, if there are tvs at the back of every headrest, the least you could offer is a random movie, versus the commercials about how great the app is, or whatever was scrolling along. Lastly, please note, I was trying to figure out a way to make a comment to United...but didn't want to sound TOOO disgruntled. I'm not opposed to flying with UA, absolutely not, but if any of these things are addressed, I definitely feel you will be making a massive improvement on what seems to be an airline that I'd think twice about taking. Feel free to e-mail or call me. I don't mean to sound rude...but having flown other airlines, and knowing that UA has been around for a while, i just hoped the experience would be better."

Cons: "Sat on the runway for over an hour with no explanation or timeline"

Pros: "Crew on board was professional."
Cons: "Plane was delayed over two hours due to mechanical issues. I missed my connections. Three separate United employees assure me I'd be rebooked for onward travel. I was sent to three different counters regarding my onward travel - sent from terminal to terminal. No onward travel was resolved and I eventually just paid for a train onward. I was told this was because it was a weather delay but at the boarding gate multiple announcements were made about repairing the plane and replacing batteries. United deliberately wasted my time and never fulfilled their obligations to get me to my destination. (Additionally, wifi and entertainment was not functional the entire 11 hour flight)"

Cons: "When I landed in San Francisco, my ticket did not have a gate number on it. My layover was only 55 minutes long so I knew I needed to get straight to my gate. I looked at the screen of departures. The screen said Eugene was at gate 72. I rushed to gate 72 to find that on display screen for gate 72, it said boarding for passengers to Orange County. I then walked to information. The gentleman at information wrote down that my gate was gate 67. I hurried to gate 67 (with only 15 minutes until boarding for my flight began). At gate 67 I asked a United Airlines worker if I was at the correct gate. He said no, my gate was 72. I explained to him I was just there. He was very rude and said if I did not want to believe him, that's fine. I said no, I believe you, I just want to be certain I am going to the correct place as I should be boarding very soon. I started running back to gate 72. On my way I stopped at the United Airlines customer service desk and encountered yet another rude United Airlines associate named Irada. She told me I needed to wait my turn in line and could not help me, even though I needed to be boarding soon. I ran back to gate 72 and the board said Eugene. I asked a pilot who was sitting down on break about the reasoning behind the boards and he helped me. A pilot whose job is not at all in customer service was the one who helped while those with the job in customer service were rude. I was very exhausted and upset with the confusion and noone willing to help. I do not believe I will be flying with United anymore if associates who are supposed to be helpful are not."

Cons: "Leg I was only offered economy. Not plus"

Cons: "My flight to San Francisco was 3 hrs delayed and I missed the wedding ceremony that I flew down to attend. The return flight was also 2 hrs delayed."

Pros: "It was perfect flight by all means"

Cons: "no plugins on the plane."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I didn't like that I couldn't take an earlier flight home to Ontario without having to pay a fee. The airline delayed my flight a day later just to get to Oregon and the least they could do was give me an early flight home."

Pros: "No entertainment unless you pay, but you can't turn the tv off, so it's playing bright ads in your face all night. Awesome."
Cons: "If you want to feel like you're riding the most cramped Greyhound bus, definitely ride with united."

Pros: "Good crew. Nice ground staff in SFO."

Pros: "United really could have done better informing us of delay, then cancellation. I knew it was likely to be delayed due to weather, and kept checking the status. It wasn't listed as delayed until nearly boarding time, although it seems pretty clear they knew well before that. But SFO was a star. The new decor is sophisticated and comfortable. Bathrooms were like at a swanky night club! Comfy chairs and charging outlets every where. The biggest hit was the Exploratorium installation, which kept my and plenty of other kids entertained!"
Cons: "Wayfinding signage from BART is confusing. BART connection is a pain. The machines in the station only take $1 and $5 bills-- no 20s or credit cards! And no one at BART cares if you are running late for a flight."

Pros: "On board shows were good."
Cons: "Flight left about 3-3.5 hours late. Add that to the time you have to show up early to the airport and I could've been almost home in my car. We were boarded and left to sit for a long time then the pilot came on saying the mechanic needed more time to look at the tire which might need to be changed. After another 15-20 min sitting, pilot comes on and says we need to get off the plane so the maintenance could be done. Ok I'd rather fly safe than be on time but really? Why doesn't this airline have enough planes that the maintenance can be done when the plane isn't scheduled to fly? So many people missed connections and we ended up getting home so much later than we had expected! Honestly I would rather the airline have emailed saying flight delayed 3 hours so I could have had more time in SF rather than sitting in an airport eating a mediocre airport meal for dinner. They had to have known the tire was almost to the point of changing right? I mean I would hope it's checked each flight. Just all together inconvenient. Like they book all theses flights to make money and yet if they had fewer but didn't make anyone waste the day or night at the airport so they could perform routine maintenance it may be worth an extra few bucks in my book. My time is valuable too, and I don't think I was the only one on the flight who thought so. Maybe United doesn't value anyone else's time other than theirs. Guess this is why we have several airlines to choose from and we will not likely fly United again."

Pros: "Nice airplane"

Pros: "Quick-ish boarding"
Cons: "No food. No entertainment. No power. Garbage, lowest rung "bus in the sky" service"

Cons: "Seats, lines, late"

Pros: "Early boarding, window seat"
Cons: "3 to a row, person in front reclining, man next to me had point of elbow on controls for video screen and pushed my volume to the very highest point! Too crowded and close."

Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "Many open seats but I was crowded into the back with several small children directly behind me and to the side who were wiggling, screaming, crying with parents correcting, chastising and singing to them. Thank goodness the trip was just over an hour and not any longer'"

Pros: "Apparently United's pilots have better one on one customer service skills than the stewardesses"
Cons: "The horrible customer service and no updated aircrafts"

Cons: "standing on the tarmac for a few minutes, waiting to board, was uncomfortably cold / I wasn't dressed for that."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "6 hour delay in SFO is apparently not unusual. Gate agent tells us that they will always bump that flight for other western regional airport since SMF doesn't have a curfew. United could care less and not transparent. And then they have the gull to tell us it was weather related. There was no bad weather anywhere in the western US that day! I tracked the plane backwards online and it never left Cali all day. United lies to shift blame away from their decision to screw all those on that flight. Advise: If you have this connection skip it, rent a car in SFO and drive to SMF. You will be to the good many hours."

Cons: "One flight attendant reprimanded several passengers like Schiller children very loudly."

Pros: "NOTHING (coffee good)"
Cons: "Unruly children on the flight."

"No entertainment whatsoever, food only to pirchase."

Pros: "the plane, finally, got me where i needed to go"
Cons: "the ticket was only $47 but then i had to pay $39 for a carry on the only complimentary item given on the plane is water - they charge you for coffee the flight attendant was obnoxious, she kept making comments about how she couldnt give us anything for free the seats do not recline the air conditioning wasnt working but they loaded the plane up regardless and then after 30 minutes told us we could get off the plane while they look for the missing part that is 'somewhere' in the airport and they didnt know how long it would take for the part to be found and installed -- i dont understand why they would load people onto the plane if the plane was not working properly and they knew they needed to stall it was a very bad experience all in all"

Pros: "Quick boarding, but I think it was just so that they we not fined by the FAA"
Cons: "My flight was delayed over FOUR HOURS! My flight was supposed to take off at 2:53 pm and we didn’t leave SFO until 6:39 pm! I received a text message at 9 am telling me that the flight was delayed until 4:05 pm....okay, no problem, I had not left for the airport yet, so no biggie. At 10:48 am, I received another text that the flight was delayed until 3:35 pm...still not a problem. A couple of minutes later, another text. My flight is now on time. Still no problem, because I usually add in 30 minutes in case Murphy of Murphy’s law shows up and throws a wrench into things. I get to the airport with plenty of time to spare & clear security... then get a new text notification at 2:08 saying that the flight is delayed for FOUR HOURS!!! Are you kidding me? On top of that, the customer service representatives made an announcement that there was a maintenance problem with the original airplane and a new one was enroute to take up the slack. They said this as a statement and offered no apologies or sorry for the inconvenience. They stayed at the check in desk for an hour, and then left and didn’t come bac until 20 minutes before the plane arrived at the gate. I will NEVER fly this airline again!"

Pros: "The price was cheap, but the cost was great."
Cons: "The very 1st words I heard out of the mouth from the very 1st frontier employee I met was "this is going to be a bad day". When they checked my bag they never said thank you, for us flying with frontier. When boarding, the "bad day" employee treated the customers as if they were cattle. Not one stewardess smile the entire flight. And when I asked to stretch after using the facilities only 1 time during the 4 hour flight, I was told (in a very sarcastic voice) "as long as you don't come into our area!" Followed by a faded whisper of "shiiiiiiit". All this, plus a 3 hour delay. What more could you ask for? Next time, I'll pay a little more for the customer service."

Cons: "HORRIBLE CREW! I’ve never been treated so poorly by a professional in any industry. They were childish and inconsiderate. They made the already horrible experience of flying with this subpar airline even worse! I would never recommend this airline to anyone. I wouldn’t fly this airline again if they paid me to. We were in the 4th row and wanted to use the restroom, they put their cart in front of aisle (horizontally) and told us we couldn’t use the front restroom. No explanation at all. Just said “you have to use the one in the back”. As we turned to walk all the way to the back you could hear them laughing and snickering at us. Another example was when we pushed the call light to ask them to take our 4 empty cans so we’d have room for our laptop on the tray. She came to our seats and asked what we wanted. When we told her she said “you’ll have to wait” then walked away empty handed. It made no sense and they didn’t pick up the garbage for awhile later. Overall, the worst. Don’t fly this airline, EVER!"

Pros: "The price of the flight was great, but even with an upgraded seat I will not be flying Frontier again."
Cons: "I upgraded my girlfriend and I to stretch seating for our 5 hour flights roundtrip from ATL to SFO. I did not realize by upgrading and selecting my seat in row 4 that my seats do not recline. This caused several issues with my bad back and with the fold down tray on the seat in front of me. I had my laptop on the tray, and when the person in front of me leaned his seat back all the way suddenly, it pinched the top of the screen between the tray and the back of his seat and cracked my laptop exterior. The main issue was not being able to "stretch" by not having a reclining seat and experienced major discomfort and back pain both flights."

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 airplane was clean."
Cons: "The seats were not reclinable and for a 3.5 hour flight in which I wanted to get in some sleep I was unable to sleep. Also the seats were very narrow and with almost no padding. I could feel the padding had wore off and my back was touching with the metal of the seat. Add all that up together and instead of a regular airplane seat it was like seating on a rigid chair for 3.5 hours. Moreover, since I couldn't sleep I decided to at least get in some work, but then I realized that the tray was so tiny that it can't even fit the smallest of laptops... I know it is a low cost airline, but paying for carry ons, checked bags, selecting seats and on flight beverages is plenty for a low cost airline. Frontier doesn't need to top it off with the most new uncomfortable seats possible. At least with Ryanair the seats are more comfortable, you can bring a carry on at no cost and the flight ticket is cheaper."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight from SFO to DEN was delayed. At check in i expressed concern about missing connecting DEN to PHL red eye (9min window) and was reassured that I "will make the flight." The flight arrived in Denver later than anticipated and the connecting red eye to PHL departed 5mins prior to landing. I was then placed on the next available flight- 5/29 at 6:55pm with arrival to PHL on 5/30 at 1am. No accomandations, re-routing options were given. I then attempted to file a complaint with the airline customer service number twice but both times no complaint was filed. The customer service rep promised to put me on an earlier flight to Trenton and refund my ticket. So I sat on the floor of the airport until ticketing opened at 4am where I was informed that no complaints were filed, I would not be refunded and the Trenton flight was not available. Also requests to retrieve my bag were ignored at the gate. I would have to spend the next 4 hours trying to locate it. I had to be in PHL today for work. I purchased a ticket on southwest."

Pros: "The price was right. I see all these complaints about the pricing scheme and just think the people who bought these tickets didn't read anything while they looked for prices. It is clear on the website that carry-on and checked bags are added fees. Even with added fees for a carry-on/overhead bag this price was $200 less than the closest competitor. Ticket was purchased the day before the flight. Nice that Frontier is also in the TSA PRE-CHECK program for screening at the airport. That was a time saver for sure."
Cons: "Seats have NO padding. For a long red eye flight, this made for an uncomfortable TOTAL of 5 hours for the combined trip. People getting on maybe don't fly much because the boarding process was hectic AND long to complete."

Pros: "I really enjoyed the camaraderie i shared with my fellow passengers. Adversity really brings people together."
Cons: "Frontier as a whole, I was unaware, is a 'not good' airline. Smallest seats I've yet experienced, no recline, no legroom. If you don't want to pay $35 to check a bag, it's cool they understand, they'll happily take $40 to let you carry a bag on. Well, not happily. More begrudgingly than happily. Customer service was poor, bordering on hostile from one sky waitress in particular. It's hard to blame the airline's employees for their poor attitude, as I would be disheartened and upset if I was surrounded by a plane-full of customers vowing to 'never fly frontier again'"

Pros: "Comfortable flight"

Pros: "We were amazed by the initial cost of $120 round trip ticket"
Cons: "The dates of our event changed, so we needed to adjust our original booking. The change cost $100 per ticket to change, and additional fees on top of that. We have taken on all of the extra fees for the change, and now there will be bag fees and whatever else we run into on the day of travel. We accept the fact that some fees are normal for change of itinerary, but it feels like we are getting nickel and dimed right now. This is what we were warned about from friends when we initially booked our "great rate"!"

Pros: "I booked a RT ticket from FL to San Francisco. The idea was I fly my kids into SFO and travel together for vacation from there. My flight was delayed for hours then canceled. i booked a united flight for $70 one way to make my transfer to Asia with the kids. On the return I was concerned they may cancel the return leg. All was fine and I had 2 days in SF to unwind. Well mynreturn flight was also delayed 6 hours then canceled. Had 9 flights I. Asia with no problem vs both flights being can led. I have not slept in over 40 hours as a result. Will never fly this airline again."

Pros: "The crew was fabulous. Basically any actual person I talked to was lovely and pleasant."
Cons: "I mean, I understand that it's the goal of the company to sucker consumers out of every penny they can, Frontier is just very in your face about it to the detriment of the overall experience. Throughout the online check in process there was an endless stream of popups asking if I was SURE I didn't want to pay more for a carry on, to choose my seat, etc which made the check in process very tedious and frustrating. And doing blatant things like making the "yes I want to pay more" button huge and basically trying to hide the "no thanks" button. As if customers aren't going to see right through that and get annoyed? (Their cost benefit analysis really didn't account for happier people being more willing to pay for extra things) Also, when my flight home got cancelled it was almost impossible to get a hold of a real person to talk to. Since it was due to weather conditions Frontier had an announcement on their website about what to do. Which...had a convenient link to requesting a refund but no instructions on how to go about re-booking, just that it was theoretically a thing they would do. When I called their customer service I was met with a recorded message about how they're overwhelmed with calls (understandable) followed by same message that was on their website and then...nothing. They ended the call. No option to speak to a person, no "you'll need to wait an hour for someone to be available", no menu to flip through...nothing. Frontier just very obviously doesn't care about customer experience (other airlines/companies at least have the decency to pretend). You'll get an adequate flight pretty cheap (provided you didn't want to bring a significant amount of luggage or eat/drink on the flight) that will get you from point A to point B. Just don't have any expectations going in."

Cons: "Extreme weather canceled the flight. Not the problem. No next flight without my 19 year-old daughter flying alone without having to sleep in tge airport in Denver. We did not accept this. 5 days later there was an open flight. I felt Frontier should have gone further to find another airline that could have beat the five day delay, or offered a hotel voucher for an overnight in Denver. We cancelled the trip and found another airline on our own. Getting a refund: frontier web info says refund, Frontier person on the phone said refund, but cancelation email says 90-day credit. Very inconsistent messaging and not at all in the favor of my daughter. We gave Frontier a try. Sadly disappointed."

Pros: "The flight attendant offered me trail mix as compensation for my seat mix up."
Cons: "I booked my flight then reserved and paid for my seat a few days later on Dec. 4th (a month before my flight). I chose an exit window seat because it was a red eye and I wanted to be as comfortable as possible. I received a confirmation email with my seat number. The day of my flight I checked in online and they made me choose a different seat than the one I had already chosen. I again chose a window exit seat but had to pay a difference of $4. I got on the plane looking for my seat 11A only to discover that there was no row 11. They put me in a non-exist row! They then asked me to sit in an aisle seat because that was the only one left. The flight attendant told me to go to the desk when we landed and get a seat refund. I got to the desk to meet a very unfriendly woman. I told her my situation and she told me I would have to call customer service. Never flying Frontier again! How could I possibly be assigned a seat that didn't exist?! I talked to some other people and they said the same thing happened to them."

Pros: "Not only were my fiancé and I hit with $130 in fees for baggage, the night prior we decided to upgrade our seats to row 1 for extra leg room for an additional $90. Little did we know for that price we'd be jeopardizing the ability to reclining our seats...on a red eye flight. I'm incredibly disappointed in frontier. I use to fly them frequently to/from SFO to the Midwest and the quality of service has decreased tremendously! These additional fees you tack on are taking advantage of customers and unethical. My family and I will not be flying with Frontier again."

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: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Everything else. Horrendous customer service. Two legs of the flight were delayed for hours (both for mechanical reasons). They had no other flights to my destination but they would not rebook through another carrier (there were nearly a dozen flights on other carriers) or refund my money. They do not recognize FAA Rule 240 (which I know they don't have to but most airlines do under these circumstances). They looked at me like I was speaking Chinese. I spend 9+ hours at the Denver airport through no fault of my own and I got to my destination at 3:00 am the following morning (instead of the originally scheduled 10:50pm -the night before - arrival time)."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "This deserves a negative star. Cut-rate experience in every way. Luggage took over an hour at DIA, and my bag didn't come out. I went to the luggage desk and they said to fill out a form and they'd get back within 48 hours. Extremely rude and disinterested treatment. They couldn't even check whether my bag made the flight etc?. After persisting they said to check ALL the carousels at DIA - it turned up on another carousel. Unpleasant way to begin my vacation - won't use them again. It also wasn't clear at booking that carry-ons are charged."

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."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It is 1:15 am and we are still waiting for the 9:15 flight. It is not the weather or mechanical delays. It is a personnel problem. The plane was "delayed" out of San Diego.The first officer relayed that he would time out on arrival and he did when the plane landed.The replacement has 2 hours to arrive. This got quite late and the waiting pilot got angry and stormed out. Now we are waiting for his replacement, if any. The airport is packed with delayed Frontier flights. The weather is beautiful. All other airlines are gone. This same flight was delayed for the last two nights in a row. They refuse to consider compensation. They can't even guarantee that a pilot will show up. This all seems Mickey Mouse to me. This is a fly-by-night operation (no pun intended). My advise would be to avoid Frontier if at all possible. The cost is about the same as competitors, anyway, due to the staggering add-on costs. I am surprised that we are not charged for oxygen"

Cons: "Two of my checked bags were lost. One I needed for a presentation at work. The other was needed for my backpacking gear. The bags were lost on Sunday morning. I needed both bags on Monday by 9am. I was finally told the bags would be delivered at 10am Monday and could take up to 4 hours to arrive. My presentation at work was a disaster as I only had half of the material I needed. And now it is 10am on Monday I am suppose to be heading to Tenessee with a large group of children for a backpacking trip and I'm trapped at home with no gear. This mistake is now effecting at least 10-15 families whose children I'm suppose to take into the wilderness. Bags get lost. I get that. Frontier has offered no compensation and barley an apology. I will never fly with this company again. I guess you get what you pay for. Very disappointed."

Pros: "Low fare was nice.. but the subsequent nickel-and-diming business practices left a bad taste in our mouths. No in-flight entertainment or proper meal options either. A gate change was poorly communicated, and passengers from 2-3 flights were congregating in the gate trying to decipher the poorly written message (illogical, broken English) on the display behind the agent's desk. That agent was nice enough, but she seemed very untrained and incapable of handling the situation. The boarding gate agent was even worse (see other review)."
Cons: "When asked, the boarding gate agent told us the boarding door was "closing in 1 minute" so that we would hurry up and board. We did, then while waiting in line on the jet bridge, we noticed on our boarding passes that there was another 18 minutes scheduled for boarding. This was infuriating because we wanted to stop by the grab-and-go cafe next to the gate, to pickup food for the cross-country flight (SFO>ATL), especially since Frontier does not offer proper meals onboard. We turned around and confronted the agent about this, and she admitted that she lied to us so that we would board. Lying to customers for any reason is totally unacceptable, and we won't forget this."

Cons: "I booked this flight because it seemed an unbelievable value. Well, the price was, indeed, too good to be true. Upon receiving the reminder to book, I discovered they charge not only for checked in bags but for carry-ons. Oh, and they charge more if you don't book more than 24 hours in advance. Oh, and they charge for choosing your seat (that I didn't go for). The food for purchase stinks (only bad snacks for a four hour flight), the seats are uncomfortable, it did take off and arrive on time, I'll give it that. But after adding on $120 for my checked carry-on fee, it was no bargain, I will never fly this airline again."

Pros: "I didn't like anything about traveling with Frontier."
Cons: "Upcharge for Seats, Upcharge for Checked Bags, Upcharge for Carry Ons, Upcharge for Water. They charge you for water. That seems illegal. The flight was delayed, the gate was changed. We had to change gates which means we had to go through security twice. The staff blamed everyone and everything else (even the passengers) for all the issues and took ZERO responsibility for anything. I can't believe they are still in business with this level of customer service. The flight attendants were ghetto too. Making light of a bad situation by saying the worst things possible. Total embarasment transfer. I'll never fly Frontier again and will think twice about booking travel with Kayak."

Pros: "Co-pilot who had to explain to passengers why so many flaws occurred in this flight, she tried to be humorous."
Cons: "Flight 1884 out of SFO was doomed from the beginning starting with a notice (thanks Kayak) via email that the flight would be 1 hour late. Then, the Departure board at the airport totally dropped the flight, Then (again thru Kayak) I read that the flight would NOT board in terminal 1, Gate 21, Domestic terminal, but ar gate A3 in the International terminal. We all had to exit domestic and go to international and again through TSA. Then the flight departed another 30 minutes late finally over 2 hours LATE! Upon arrival at Phoenix the plane taxied too far away from the exit ramp-another 40 minutes before we could depart. It was an awful flight experience. Did they offer a free soda or anything for inconvenience we experienced-NOT A THING!"

Cons: "Arrived well before the flight to check bag which I paid $35 (highest rate for check in bag yet-compared to other airlines). Took over an hour to check bag as there was one person checking bags at DIA. The other employee was assigned to the customers who had paid a premium fee. Many of the customers left the long lines and went to curb side to check their bags. When I arrived at gate, flight was delayed. I got on the plane and into my seat. Unfortunately, I was not paying attention and sat in 8F, not 8E. There was a woman and her daughter who came on late and they gave 8E to the daughter. Moments later a woman, came and asked me to show my boarding pass. I took out my phone but forgot I had switched it to airplane mode as we were due to leave. In a full flight, the woman (Robin), started telling me that I was on the wrong flight and that I was on the later flight. I couldn't bring up my seat assignment because I was frazzled and embarrassed as she insisted I get up and leave with her. I thought we were going out to check my assignment, but when I got out to the gate, I realized that the plane was leaving. Robin and the crew realized they had made a mistake and told me the only thing they could do was get me on the 10 p.m. flight out of Denver. Never have I been treated so poorly. All someone had to do was ask my name which did not happen until I was totally humiliated as I struggled to get off the plane and was out at the gate. I was reimbursed my flight and was given a check and a $15 voucher for dinner which didn't cover my dinner. I took the later flight and arrived home at 0100 a.m. My husband had to come home from the coast (2 hour drive) to take care of our dogs who were waiting for me to come home to feed them and get them out of the heat."

Pros: "Great pilot, the plane hit some sever turbulence as we approached Denver International airport. I wasn't concerned since this was a new aircraft but if it was an older one it would have sustained structural damage. The pilot aborted the landing and flew over Denver and came in from a different direction. Everyone on the plane cheered when the pilot landed the plane safely."
Cons: "I was charged a fee to select a seat, not one with more leg room just any seat. Also, I was charged $40. for just one carry on. In addition on this new AIRBUS 320 the seats are so close together in the rows that they should issue a warning that if you are taller than 6 ft. 3 in. you won't be able to sit in the seat because your knees will be in contact with the seat in front of you. I'm 6 ft. 4 in. so luckily this was only a 2 hour flight. I also choose an aisle seat so I could put my feet in the aisle."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Hidden fees (you pay to pick your seat! you pay for carry on!) jacked the price of this flight up $100. Would have appreciated knowing that these fees existed before booking. Customer Service was nonexistent. Absolutely NOBODY could change my ticket after 12 hours of delays made it impossible for me to make it to my connecting flight to my final destination. I tried the customer service center, the gate, calling corporate, the gate again, customer service again. NOBODY COULD DO IT! I am still in Denver and have not made it to my final destination."

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: "Multiple delays, poor communication from staff, flight was moved to a different terminal (international) but no staff member went around to notify sleeping passengers (this occurred around 1am but other passengers woke up those sleeping at the original gate, had to walk from domestic to international due to the late hour, flight cancelled at 3:30 in the morning, first told crew timed out then that since original delay for the crew was weather related that the passengers are not 'entitled to compensation' and that we were 'invited to stay and sleep at the gate' while crew was off duty, multiple phone calls to customer service yielded minimal results, airline reimbursed hotel but NOT transportation up to $150 but passengers had to identify hotels at 3:30-4am without assistance (can't find a hotel at that hour or that rate near SFO, rescheduled flight was then delayed over 2 hours, gate agents unable to use computer system or print and almost denied boarding after their attempt to check myself and the rest of our party in accidentally removed us from the seat map"

Pros: "I made it alive"
Cons: "Everything else. We left late (couple hours), the attendents said looking like a 7:15 departure... No update...8:10 departure, ran out of the snack items we wanted, no wifi, uncomfortable chair, no entertainment, arrived but then sat on Tarmac, again attendent said just a few minutes but 25 later we moved to gate just to wait for the crew that wasn't there yet. Seemed really super unorganized and would have been better if they just told us straight up how long it was going to take. Cost me a whole bunch of money. I would have just flown the next day and skipped a night at a hotel, a car rental, taxis and we were so late we didn't even get to eat before bed. Absolutely the worst flight ever. Hard to believe since it is only two hours and I travel a lot! Won't be traveling Frontier again."

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."

Pros: "Frontier airlines boarded relatively smoothly and there was sufficient room for my carry-on luggage. Even though I didn't pay for a seat assignment, my wife and I were seated together. The crew was generally friendly and cooperative."
Cons: "Hidden fees are a deal-breaker for me here. They try to get you to pay for seat assignments, although you don't have to. If you don't pay for a seat assignment, there is a risk you may not be seated with the rest of your party. You do have to pay to bring a carry-on, which I didn't realize. The added cost of $40 (if you pay in advance, $55 if you forget and pay at the airport) to carry on a piece of luggage that is typically free makes this far less of a bargain than advertised. I felt misled and taken advantage of. Since we realized this the day before our flight, my wife and I shared one carry on to keep the cost down. For us, the tickets ended up costing $80 more than I realized. If we had each had our own carry on, the total added cost would be $160 which seems like quite a ripoff."

Pros: "even though we left an hour late, we still arrived at our destination on time."
Cons: "our flight left about an hour late; we were told our exit row seats would recline (but they didn't); no in-flight entertainment; very uncomfortable and couldn't sleep on the red-eye as i am able to with other airlines. also, had to pay $40 per luggage to check in (vs $45 to carry on) - however, we saved about $150 total flying frontier (bag checked included) vs other airlines. it was annoying though that we weren't able to easil add bags to our itinerary upon checkout on this site. BIGGEST disappointment was that frontier did not participate in TSA-pre check, which i suppose was fine for this flight since we left an hour late, anyway."

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: "Was at boarding gate A36..which is what the big board said to be at..my ticket, as well. Waiting with 100+ other passengers at gate..watching Netflix out of boredom waiting on plane. 15 mins past departure time..I go to customer service and they tell me its MY FAULT I missed the plane that left 4 minutes prior because THEY changed the gate to A32.. There was no change on the board..but they said it was announced. It wasn't made clear to those of us who thought we were in the right gate waiting. I was able to fly out until the next morning..putting a lot of plans I and others had in serious jeopardy. Your customer service agents have MUCH to be desired..very rude..taking customers that walked up behind me while making me wait on them to get their sh*t together. I almost lost the only flight available out the next day because they were chatting amongst themselves about personal problems!!"

Pros: "clean plane"
Cons: "I haven't flown Frontier in a while. I didn't realize I have to buy my seat too? What the heck is that? Sure it's only another $13 min. But here's the catch, you get a seat They've replaced the pull down table with a small flip down "table" that is about 1/3 the size of a standard table. While this does offer more legroom, it makes eating difficult and uncomfortable. I could not rest a standard square salad container on it during the flight. Luckily, I had a plastic bag from the vendor that I could put over my slacks to act as a big placemat. I didn't want to spill dressing on my pants. No WIFI onboard In short, I will be avoiding Frontier in the future. I do fly budget airlines like SW, but at least the attitude there is better. And what you get is clear."

Pros: "Pretty much nothing."
Cons: "The fact that you have to pay for a seat - any seat - and carry on, and water, for God's sake. Unreal. Rude flight crew ("take your body parts out of the aisles"), incompetent and rude boarding crew (completely ignoring boarding order, except to make one elderly Asian man leave the line - while clearly letting everyone else board in whatever order they pleased.) Horrible plane - ridiculously uncomfortable seats, no legroom at all. I am 5'10", healthy and middle-aged, and sat with my legs crunched for 4 1/2 hours, leaving me almost unable to walk after the flight. I will never ever fly Frontier again if I can help it. And I will absolutely tell everyone I can not to either. Awful experience."

Pros: "Nothing stands out as what I liked - the crew and boarding were average, so I guess not negative is good in this case."
Cons: "I chose this flight because of cost but don't be fooled - you will pay for everything extra - seat selection, carry-on or checked luggage, even coffee or snacks, extra. The seats are absolutely terrible in my opinion, don't recline, limited padding, very uncomfortable if flying over 2 hours. At the end of the day, this was only like $25 less than another airline (american in this case) - and all the other airlines are much more comfortable and include those little things like carry-on, nonalcoholic beverages and snacks. It isn't worth it, use another airline!"

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??"

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: "The flight crew were pleasant, but since I didn't want to be nickle and dimed for drinks or food, I didn't have much interaction."
Cons: "The hidden charges were ridiculous, plus they were "hidden" during the purchasing process. I felt "bullied" into paying for this and that, but resisted. Plus, nowhere does it say that only rows 1,3, and 13 had reclining seats. Having just hurt my back, I felt tingling in my spine for both 2 &1/2 hr. flights and could not get comfortable...not to mention the seats were hard as a rock and did not fit the shape of my short body. I also thought it strange to only have half of a tray table! Really? I couldn't even get my water bottle to rest on it without falling off. If I had seen the reviews I am seeing now, I would have chosen another airline. Cutting corners is one thing, making a flying experience uncomfortable and miserable for your customers was a bad business decision in my book."

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."

Cons: "The charges for sitting with the person I was flying with were unexpected as were the charges for the carry on baggage. I would prefer that the initial cost of the fights were indicative of what the flight would ultimately cost me so I could fairly compare them to other flights. On top of those pricing shenanigans the seats are smaller than average, do not recline at all and are generally uncomfortable and the tray tables are minuscule. I have told everyone I came into contact with during my trip and I will continue to tell anyone that will listen that I feel misled and taken advantage of by frontier airlines."

Cons: "I had a pretty unpleasant experience with Frontier on 12/21/15. Rain in San Francisco caused flight delays. Go figure. Frontier kept us waiting for six hours then cancelled the flight. They were rude; they didn't help their customers, including families with kids, get on other airlines; said they would try to getpeople out of SFO in the next couple days! When I realized I would not get to the wedding I was trying to attend, they siad they wouldn't refund my money' When I insistedon a refund they then said there would be a $19.99 cancellation fee. Eventually, they agreed on a refund. Pretty poor way to run a business. On the other hand, when I needed to cancel my Enterprise car rental, I was able to do it in less than two minutes over the phone - no hassle."
