The dirt cheap, I can't believe an airline can operate at this low an airfare and still turn a profit-ticket prices

The hidden checked-baggage fees that were almost half the cost of the actual ticket for one bag. The non reclining seats. The lack of legroom. The feeling of cattle being herded into a slaughterhouse. The lack of friendliness with the RDU and MCO gate/ticket counter agents. The cost of having to pay $12 to ensure I sit beside my 5 year old son on the flight. Besides a free seat belt, having to pay for everything else under the sun. Surprised AC was free.

I dislike that once I got to the airport in Cleveland before boarding schools go to Orlando they charge me $45 for a suitcase that if I would have painted with my ticket it would have been $25 and that's what it told me I had to pay at the airport if I wasn't going to pay it with my ticket it was only $25 not $45 so they charge me $45 and then when I went to board the plane to go in they tried to charge me $45 for a backpack that fits under the seat and wasn't a carry on then they charge like $3 for a can of soda I don't think I'll ever recommend Frontier to anyone or I would never travel again with them that is ridiculous being a disabled person and being taken advantage of is unacceptable

Tight seating and luggage overhead bin storage too small. Our bins were already full with others bags when we boarded. Wonder why the bins above your assigned seat would be used by other passengers.

Surprised! My experience with United has typically been very poor. It's usually my last choice when choosing an airline. This is the first time I can honestly say I had a good experience on United. Plane was new, seats were very comfortable ans spacious (very rare), attendants were all under 70 years old and service was spot on. Huge change from the United I know.

You have to pay for satellite TV, usually free on other major carriers.

Entertainment had many options with a few good and recent movies.

I purchased Alaskan tickets, hoping for their legroom, baggage guarantees and excellent beer. Instead I got an American Air flight – one of their trusted partners. None of their deals carries over to AA. I guess I will pay closer attention next time.

Two really nice flight attendants.

You had two excellent crew members and one who was in fact a little rude- was startled because usually flight attendants are very friendly. It made me even say something to the other crew member, who herself was incredibly nice, and eased the situation. Also, it was laughable how much leg room I had. I am not sure that I will fly united again for that reason. I normally don't ever write reviews, but the amount of space given was absolutely ridiculous.

The crew was really nice.

So many delays. My flight was eventually cancelled on Friday and was rescheduled for Saturday. The Saturday flight was delayed. All in all, i wasted a vacation day on Friday, I paid for a hotel in Denver for Friday night that I was not able to get refunded, I missed out on a day in Denver. It was a huge bummer.

The crew was very friendly.

The seats were close together and not very comfortable. No entertainment, for example a movie for a 4 hour flight. You have to pay for everything. Only thing complimentary is water.

Crew was ameable and helpful.

A passenger that was intoxicated and incredibly loud. It was ok though, she was on her way to a cruise.

if you have a hard engagement that you have to make, i hate to say it, but use a bigger airline. These guys are not dependable nyc -> miami. Have had 2 flights cancelled and delayed over 6 hours in the last 6 months. Only one scheduled flight everyday. If you can risk it, fine, but otherwise not worth it.

Two really nice flight attendants.

You had two excellent crew members and one who was in fact a little rude- was startled because usually flight attendants are very friendly. It made me even say something to the other crew member, who herself was incredibly nice, and eased the situation. Also, it was laughable how much leg room I had. I am not sure that I will fly united again for that reason. I normally don't ever write reviews, but the amount of space given was absolutely ridiculous.

Smooth flight. Made up time in air. Decent snacks. Professional although not seemingly happy flight attendants.

Delayed take off. Sat on tarmac. The outgoing flight had free entertainment via the united app but the return flight required payment for the same fare class and same duration. Ran out of snacks for purchase.

We made up late departure and arrival was close to ontime.

Tight seating and luggage overhead bin storage too small. Our bins were already full with others bags when we boarded. Wonder why the bins above your assigned seat would be used by other passengers.

enough space to move around

I dislike that once I got to the airport in Cleveland before boarding schools go to Orlando they charge me $45 for a suitcase that if I would have painted with my ticket it would have been $25 and that's what it told me I had to pay at the airport if I wasn't going to pay it with my ticket it was only $25 not $45 so they charge me $45 and then when I went to board the plane to go in they tried to charge me $45 for a backpack that fits under the seat and wasn't a carry on then they charge like $3 for a can of soda I don't think I'll ever recommend Frontier to anyone or I would never travel again with them that is ridiculous being a disabled person and being taken advantage of is unacceptable

Unorganized, confusing boarding, confusion with seating, unbelievable lines while checking bags. Literally the only redeeming factor was the price.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
