(SNA/SFO) From ease of arrival at check in by Alaska Airlines staff to the airport security at SFO providing assistance to help me guide my ride to pick me up the best description of where I was to ease pick up.

Pros: "Crew was professional, plan was clean,"
Cons: "Plane was late"

Pros: "normal."
Cons: "."

Pros: "Smooth quick flight, seats roomy, crew very nice"
Cons: "When we got in we had to on a already hot plane on the runway for 40 mins. It's was very incomfortable and I missed my airporter so had to get one a hour later getting me home at 11:30. We were on the ground at 7:40 and I didn't get on airporter until 9:30! Also, the gogoinflight didn't work."

Cons: "Absolutely nothing"

Pros: "Quick boarding process. Plenty of leg room. Kind team aboard plane."
Cons: "Delayed leaving but made up for it in the air. Terrible smell on the plane for the duration of flight."

Pros: "First time flying from SNA/OC. Accessibility of terminals was great, close by parking and only 2$/hour. Almost no wait for check in and security, very fast and convenient. Boarding was uncomplicated and there was enough space for carry on items. Loved that they offer wifi throughout the flight and free messaging (in case you don't need full internet access). Will definitely consider flying with Alaska Airlines again!"

Cons: "I was in the aisle seat and kept getting bumped into by the crew as they walked by. I leaned toward the middle seat but still got hit with the cart, people’s bums, their hips, etc. The flight landed at 4am, so I was tired and really wanted to sleep but couldn’t. Also, the AC was not working during the flight. We were all melting until we started descending. Then, while waiting to get off the plane, they turned off the AC completely. Bad move."

Pros: "Room in the seat was humane. Respectable leg room and not squished with fellow travelers. Boarding process orderly."
Cons: "Crew late to second leg of trip. Visibly tired from a long day."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Packed"

Cons: "The plane was too warm before take off."

Pros: "Pleasantly surprised by AA. I would definitely fly AA again"

Pros: "All AA employees I interacted with were professional & very helpful to me & my family. Thank you"
Cons: "NA"

Cons: "Take off was delayed for nearly an hour and the flight re-routed because of weather. We had scheduled plenty of time to make our connecting flight but we weren't updated on how much later we would be. This caused a lot of worry and stress not knowing when we would land or where our connecting gate would be. Fortunately the gates were next to one another and it all worked out. There were supposed to be usb charging connectors under the seat but I felt around for nearly 30 minutes and couldn't find them. Nobody could."

Cons: "You lost our bag and our original flight was shrunk. Our seats booted without warning. Late to our conference in Arizona."

Pros: "Staff did seem empathetic and offered substantial tips on how to find out about connecting flights. Also a promotional offer for the aa credit card had a sweetened points offer. I also liked the general structure of the plane made it easy to see if the lavatory was occupied or not."
Cons: "Plane pulled away from the gate knowing we were delayed (or so it seemed). Subsequent delays meant we were stuck on the plane and couldn't briefly disembark."

Cons: "No accommodation for delays and overnight stay in airport."

Pros: "It got us there on time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment on the longer flight. Uhgggg."

Cons: "Not a thing!"

Pros: "just Ok for everything."

Pros: "I booked a codeshare ticket through Alaska Airlines reward program. I was worried I'd be shafted when it came to seats. Not so. I had the row to myself on both flights and just 2 rows shy of first class! Very impressed."

Pros: "The main crew person checking us in was very nice and attentive, tried to keep me posted on changes, and remained pleasant even though some were getting upset."
Cons: "flight was delayed, staff didn't update us so people were getting upset and irritable while waiting to hear. Then flight times changed without announcements, upsetting some."

Cons: "Mechanical difficulties in Dallas caused us to leaveat least 1.5 hours late. Got to Phoenix after my scheduled and all other flights to Spokane had departed. AA put me up in a hotel at the airport. Had to wait 35 minutes outside for a shuttle in 102 heat at 9:00 in the evening. Had to ask for a voucher for evening meal."

Pros: "The boarding process was good."
Cons: "Don't think the flight attendant should hang the trash bags in front of the passengers faces in the aisles to collect trash."

Cons: "Na"

Cons: "."

Pros: "Safe flight"

Pros: "Business seats comfortable."
Cons: "Crew was friendly. Not always professional."

Pros: "Ticket price was competitive."
Cons: "No individual entertainment systems on the seat backs--4.5 hours is a long time to be sitting on a plane with only an overhead screen showing whatever movie the airline chose. Also, charging $125 for a carry-on pet that has to stay under the seat AND having it count towards as one of my two "free" carry-ons is ridiculous. The flight was delayed because one of the crew was late."

Pros: "I like that on American you still get a complimentary cup of coffee, a bag of pretzels, and a normal sized seat. I'm OK paying for that after trying some of the budget airlines!"
Cons: "Wish they had a gluten free snack, still that's really not a big deal at all!"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and made my travel pleasant"

Pros: "Service was not only on time we landed early as oppose to me losing 1300 usd on my original flight to dallas for work Friday which I didn't make and cost me out of pocket"

They didn't update us saying he was on his way or anything, just that we were "still waiting." No entertainment was visible from my seat either."

Pros: "Nonstop flight"
Cons: "Nothing special about American. Boarding process doesn't make sense. People crowd the gate during boarding. Aircraft cabin is outdated. Would love to see, at minimum, power outlets for each seat. Cabin was frigid, does it need to be that cold?!"

Cons: "No charging capabilities for devices. Limited food options."

Cons: "Food was poor for first class."

Cons: "No complaints with airline but flight was a little ruff on approach made me a little nauseous."

Pros: "We had about a 45 minute weather delay but those things can't be helped. The Captain kept us informed and he flew like superman getting us through all that crazy wind coming into Las Vegas. The plane was new and clean, the crew was great. Love that wide aisle...it eliminates that sardine feeling!!"

Pros: "The crew was good , plane was delayed and late for departure. Second flight was delayed by 2 1/2 hours , I just can’t catch a break !!"
Cons: "I could not log onto the website and check my carryon bag , cost me $50 at check in. It would not recognize my number for the first flight. I’m a known traveler on Frontier so I did log in with them ."

Cons: "There was no way for us to add another bag after our seat placement. No one answered the phone for Alligent and the website didn’t work. It costs $20 extra to do this at the airport. Even though it was not our fault that there was no one answering phone calls (and no way to leave a message)"

Pros: "LEFT EARLY ARRIVED EARLY PERFECT"

Pros: "The staff was friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed multiple times, the directions on having boarding passes on the app or printed prior were not given so found that our last minute to avoid paying the front desk clerk $5.00. The flight landed 5 hours later than scheduled which is completely unacceptable."

Pros: "Great crew and online customer service..."
Cons: "1- Flight Behind Schedule 2- Live customer service agents are truly non-existent until 1.5hrs before ‘departure’"

Pros: "Nothing, honestly. Constantly delayed, cheap airline with forced fees, only one I could take and I can’t believe you exist. You have horrible customer service"

Cons: "It was so hot boarding and unloading. There was no air. Staff was curt and not very friendly as of assistance."

Cons: "Old plane with fixed seats with very limited leg room which were not comfortable- broken window shades, scratched windows, & rattles everywhere made for a long flight. Crew was ok, I would fly again if the price was enough of a savings"

Cons: "Allegiant 468 7/27 4 1/2 hour delay on flight 569 on 7/27 and not a single person on the ground or plane even said sorry. Allegiant also failed to update the revised departure time. Allegiant posted an initial delay of 30 minunutes but then, when there was a further 2 hour delay due to a problem with the plane in Vegas Allegiant didn't update the time. (G4 568 was showing a two hour delay, with a 1010 arrival into STS but Allegiant never updated the departure time for 569 to reflect the additional two hour delay.) It wasn't until I called that it got updated and when I called I had to point out that the airplane hadn't even left Vegas and Allegiant was still showing an 8:50 departure time. It also took the reservation agent over 20 minutes to get any information about what was going on. Lastly each and every time I call I was on hold for a minimum of 20 minutes before being able to speak to a person"

Cons: "Nothing!!!"

Pros: "I did not like anything about it. The Departure flight was two hours late. They made us board then unboard the plane, change gates. Then the return flight was posponed from 9pm to 3am departure. They didn't have any refreshments in the gare area other than stale unhealthy pizza, no water. The seats on the plane were the most uncomfortable. I even purchased the extI did not like anything about it. The Departure flight was two hours late.

Pros: "Comfort and speed of the flight. Attentive staff!"
Cons: "Need one craft beer"

Cons: "First they delayed the flight and then they cancelled the day of and I had to book a whole new flight for the day which was costly.

Cons: "Low airfare."

Pros: "The price and the nonstop flight."
Cons: "6+ hour delays Plane looked to be in sad shape, paint peeling, looked bolted together from spare parts. Strange Air Conditioning issues mid-flight that turned the plane into a walk-in freezer. upon landing our entire flights bags were abandoned and there wasn't a single Allegiant representative in the airport to communicate with the airport baggage people. After 1.5 hour wait our bags were finally offloaded onto the baggage claim by an airport employee not normally tasked with the job. Allegiant was paged over and over with no response. I will NEVER fly Allegiant again."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very respectful and courteous."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly"

Pros: "GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR A FIRST TIME FLYER"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They overcharge for bags and their weight limit is only 40 pounds. They leave the desk and hour before take off which doesn't help people who are running late. They charge you to print out your boarding pass. They don't even send the boarding pass through email, you have to download the app. Overall horrible customer service. When call for customer service you can't even get a human representative. I missed my flight and they didn't even have another flight to to accommodate me to get to my destination and no one at the front desk to talk to."

No other flights available For family of three until 3 days later! Had to demand to be transferred to another airline so my family & I can go home the next morning. Overall stuck in SNA airport for 8 hours. Didn’t get a refund for baggage, instead was given meal vouchers for the airport in the morning. United did provide hotel for the night but nothing special. United staff where nice to make the best of the situation."

Cons: "No leg space"

Pros: "They were on time."
Cons: "There is no TV. They give you free United wifi that you can use if you have a device to watch movies/TV on, but they don't have any outlets to charge the device, so it's kind of pointless."

Pros: "Service was friendly. Food ok. Entertainment acceptable for long flight."
Cons: "There is More Variety of entertainment on Delta and American Airlines but otherwise comparable."

Pros: "Delays because of fires , had to wait in line close to 90 minutes but when we finally reached the ticket counter the agent moved took great care of us and we made to Boise only an hour late even with all the delays and confusion . Excellent job , one of the better customer experiences I’ve had flying !"

Cons: "My flight was delayed, leaving SNA and I would not make the connecting flight to HNL. Lyn P. at SNA placed me on Alaska Air and I was able to make my connection. Howeer my bag is lost.

Cons: "Crew member working at the gate told the lady next to me "get in line if you'd like to complain" regarding the continuous delays. Crew member let us know that united was aware of our delay ed take of 4:05 rather than 1:00pm several hours before yet, We were only informed through notifications in increments of 30 minutes. be transparent with your customers, the delay would have been much less frustrating had we known. Instead notifications every 30mins were teasing us that we're about to leave but it's clear united had not intention of taking off. Also crew member on board serving beverages "I need your money" is an extremely unprofessional and inappropriate way to ask for a card."

Cons: "As a frequent flyer, I'm used to slight delays, waiting around, and standard customer service across airlines. It's safe to say that this was one of the worst flying experiences that I've ever had....6 different 30 minute delays and horrible customer service."

Pros: "Nothing your Service was horrible"

Pros: "The crew in Orange County was as helpful and proactive as could be."

Pros: "Punctual departure and arrival"
Cons: "The A319 that was used appeared quite tired. Strange irregular banging noises were heard and felt under the wing root area as jet taxied out of Santa Ana. After landing, a very high pitch squeal started and lasted 5 minutes after engine shut-down. Finally, there was a very loud "sawing noise" coming from under the aircraft after parking in the terminal that others commented about the loud sawing noise. Canadair aircraft was much nicer and quieter that was used from SFO to Santa Ana."

Pros: "The crew was polite and accommodating."
Cons: "After zone 2, no passengers were allowed to carry on the allotted amount of luggage. Boarding took a long time, passengers were rude, and the gat agents didnt notify anyone of the flight status until 30 minutes before boarding time. This changed three times."

Cons: "I was refused boarding after being told I could fly. A horrible experience--rebooking for my wife and I cost us 1,000 dollars."

Pros: "I love how polite and efficient your employees are. I was immediately offered assistance with baggage check in and with using the kiosk. You should be very proud of these staff for they represent United well. I thoroughly enjoyed every member I met.Thank you for a 100% wonderful experience."

Pros: "Economy Plus works well"
Cons: "United new seats are uncomfortable"

Pros: "-Fast check-in -Crew was friendly -Comfortable seat -Appreciate the beverage -Love the new safety videos"

Pros: "The aircraft"

Pros: "Anytime things are new, and the basic needs are met for service, I think people will be happy. But! Timing was estimate for an 8:56 arrival and we landed at 8:30, so great timing too."

Pros: "After all these years, still love United!"
Cons: "Loved everything!"

Cons: "Gate was changed.. Delayed one hour"

Pros: "They still offer drinks. It was a short flight, so all the bad things didn't have to be endured for as long."
Cons: "Every time I fly United, I realize they shrank the seat size, again. Oh, and the flight attendant spilled my drink on me. Only said, "sorry, buddy" and then got me a couple of napkins... Was friendly other than that, though. O.o"

Pros: "Great flight attendants on flight itself."
Cons: "Ridiculous price of flight from OC to SFO, the $200 cancellation fee when cancellation was medically related & notification was over 24hrs. 45minute flight delay."

Pros: "Flight crew was great. Easy, quick boarding."
Cons: "$25 for the first checked bag is a ripoff."

Cons: "Wifi on the first flight was great, unable to view any entertainment on the connecting flight"

Pros: "The price...for once, a weekend to SF was reasonable!"

Pros: "The flight was delayed due to fog in SFO. This apparently is something that happens often, and given that most people flying to SFO are trying to make connections it is very inconvenient."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to fog in SFO. This apparently is something that happens often, and given that most people flying to SFO are trying to make connections it is very inconvenient."

Pros: "The staff was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was late but that was at no fault to the airline."

Pros: "no delays. quick flight & boarding"

Pros: "The service when flight was cancelled"
Cons: "The flight being cancelled"

Pros: "The plane was clean, left on time and arrived early. Expecting that there were too many carry on bags, they offered to check some bags at the gate for no additional cost."
Cons: "The snacks were a waste of time. The charge for the entertainment system is based on the published flying time but since those are overstated to improve on time performance, the entertainment charge was excessive."

Pros: "The return flightf we had our be on from S,an Francisco to Atlanta , we had only 20 minutes to make it to the boarding gate. We were tired and didn't have time to use the bathroom nor eat before boarding. This is because my flight was changed. I'm so upset with United."

Cons: "Gate crew had no interest in helping with layovers affected by flight delay."

Cons: "Waiting in S.F. for flight to board. Crew announces flight will be 1 hour and ten minutes late. A few minutes later, announces the pilot is on his way and may be a half an hour late. The gate number was not announced until about a half an hour before boarding. We finally boarded and was told that co-pilot was not at airport. It was a terrible experience with United."

Cons: "Plane was old and dirty ...."

Cons: "Cost too much for carry-on. Seats don't recline."

Pros: "The staff were very pleasant"
Cons: "The seats are small and don't recline"

Pros: "The comfort was as good as it was in my review because I had the whole row to myself. There is more padding on bus seats. And I avoided paying for a carry on and a checked bag by strategically packing in the largest purse I have... Saved $70."
Cons: "There's no padding and baggage is expensive. Thankfully my stay isn't longer so the baggage thing is doable."

Pros: "I love flying frontier!"

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours. Then the gate was occupied when we landed and we had to wait again."

Pros: "It was a regular flight"
Cons: "Be prepared to pay for free consciences with other airlines"

Cons: "I do not like having to pay for a carry on bag."

Pros: "Very pleasant flight."
Cons: "Having to pay for everything."

Pros: "Crew is amazing."
Cons: "Flight was delayed more than a couple hours."

Pros: "cheap flight"
Cons: "Carry on fees"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful. I would even say better than most I've dealt with"
Cons: "Frontier charges for everything including carry on luggage, seat assignments and beverage service. That's disappointing because I'd rather just pay a little more for the flight than be nicked and dimed."

Cons: "Awesome"

Cons: "They give your only water"

Cons: "They charged for bags when there was so much wasted space in overhead space."

Pros: "Staff allowed me to move to front to make connecting flight"
Cons: "Baggage lost and looked like most of flight was in line at baggage counter for same thing. Uncomfortable seats"

Cons: "The crew was fine. There was a problem with the fuel in Santa Ana, so we had to make a stop in Las Vegas to refuel which took nearly an hour to do. On top of that the airline issued no apology, no refund or voucher even though the flight was meant to be direct. The strangest experience I had ever had flying and (even though I said it last time), I seriously will NEVER fly Frontier again."

Cons: "The fact that I got baited and switched on my first ticket purchased. I purchased 2 other flights on kyak after I purchased those I got an email saying my frontier flight did not go through and since I already bought my other two I had to purchase the flight to NYC which then ended up costing an extra 150$ dollars."

Pros: "Absolutely Nothing!"
Cons: "Poor gate service, plane changed, gate changed. An absolute madhouse with the Frontier's employees either not knowing how to handle the situation, or not caring. Flight was eventually over and hour and a half late. After considering the additional charges for seat selection, checked/carry on bag, and outrageous charges for even a soda in flight - the economical flight I thought I was booking was any but a bargain. Historically I have flown on United...I took a chance with Frontier and will not make the same mistake twice...I now understand why Frontier is in financial trouble..."

Pros: "There was not anything about this flight I enjoyed."
Cons: "The plane was late, there was never an announcement to let us know and the board said "on time" until we boarded. We waited at the gate for 40 minutes before the pilot came over the intercome to say it was a "paper work issue", we waited another 30 minutes and they didn't come back on to say thanks for your patience or apologize for the delay, we just started taxing. The pilot was not good, we experienced weird pitches during the flight. When we landed we waited another 20 minutes for the door to open at the gate. And to top it all off, they sent our bags to a different carousel than the board and the carousel it self stated. Nightmare and will not fly with frontier again, this new movement is a joke."

Pros: "Crew was ok"
Cons: "I was on flight #266 from Orange county to Denver on Oct.1 Luggage came after hour & a half. Flight to orange county from Denver was late. Will never fly Frontier again."

Pros: "Clean, new plane. Courteous crew. Smooth flight from SNA to DIA with updates from Captain."
Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable. One had to purchase a beverage (non-alcoholic)."

Pros: "Comfy for taller passengers Leg room Sleek chairs More room to sleep near window"
Cons: "paying for the extras, drink, snacks, carry on etc"

Pros: "The flight wasn't delayed 12 hours this time"
Cons: "The long layover in Denver and that I wasn't given a full refund for my flight there when I had to book with a different airline, nor was my $30 bag check refunded."

Cons: "Frontier does not participate/honor TSA Precheck Frontier charges for checked bags AND carry on bags Frontier seats do not recline"

Cons: "Delayed more than one hour"

Pros: "Bar/food menu bundled The food wasn't good but concept was"
Cons: "Nothing to read watch or listen to"

Cons: "1. Discount experience 2. Small tray tables could not support a small laptop 3. Initial 15 minute delay became an hour delay followed by another delay as we waited for a crew member who was traveling -- announced that we were wait for another crew member who sat in the passenger section 4. Unexpected additional $13.00 charge to select a seat 5. Charge of $2.00 for in flight soda 6. Unexpected $45.00 charge for carry-on luggage 7. No entertainment, no visual nor auditory options Next time I will avoid Frontier and Kayak and book directly with United or Delta."

Cons: "Unfriendly baggage policies will make you feel ripped off. You're better off paying higher prices with a better airline such as Southwest or Virgin America because with all the baggae fees and surcharges you're gonna pay the same price or higher than the other airlines and you'll have absolutely NO comforts. You get what you pay for, but with Frontier Airlines you get LESS than what you paid for..."

Pros: "Seats did not recline, so no one flopped back into me."
Cons: "I had a window seat and asked if I could switch to an aisle. There was an upcharge for switching seats. No food or drinks offered free."

Cons: "Food - N/A. Entertainment - There was none, so I can't rate it."

Cons: "No room between seats; very uncomfortable"

Pros: "The flight was short!"
Cons: "I am shocked at how Frontier has downgraded to uncomfortable seats, no entertainment, envelope sized trays, and charging for extra for everything!! So disappointed=("

Cons: "Frontier charges for carry ons. Ridiculous!"

Pros: "The pilot stuck me as an upbeat, positive professional. I appreciated that he mentioned we were headed to the home of the Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos. It made me smile."
Cons: "No negatives at all."

Pros: "The staff were great. Boarding was also fast"
Cons: "Had to pay for carry one, not comfortable"

Pros: "Everything with the flight went pretty smoothly, no better or worse than I'd expect from any airline."
Cons: "Charges for everything. Even selecting a seat -- ANY seat -- cost additional money. Those charges were different coming and going. I couldn't plan for cost until after buying the tickets. The policies were not terribly clear when specifying what kind of carry-on bags would incur charges. So, rather than risk paying even more at the gate if my small bag constituted a carry-on, I just paid the extra money for a carry-on. As my father and his childhood friends used to say in their neighborhood games with special rules: Learn as you lose."

Pros: "Boarding was great."
Cons: "one of the lead flight crew members was extremely rude to my brother. He asked a simple question regarding if the overhead compartment was free and she responded very rudely. I didn't appreciate that. Perhaps she may have been having a bad day but being unnecessarily rude isn't a good quality."

Pros: "The plane was clean and on time"
Cons: "This was without a doubt the most uncomfortable plane anyone in our family has ever been on. Not to mention that the size of the trays was completely useless, in addition to chair is not reclining at all. And no legroom whatsoever. We felt nickeled and dime did every turn paying the highest fees for baggage of any airline we've ever traveled, on top of only being able to bring one carry-on, and having to pay for any kind of beverage or snack on the plane. The staff was neither friendly or rude, I would say ambivalent. I don't normally leave negative reviews – but I will avoid frontier in the future. ( I apologize for the typos – I have dictated this on my phone, and the system is not allowing me to correct them. )"

Pros: "Made it to my destination alive!"
Cons: "Extra cost after ticket purchase for seats both ways. Extra cost for any bags including carry-on. Extra cost for any food or drink item during flight-don't even get a cheap bag of peanuts for free!"

Pros: "Charge for food, overhead, and seat reservationa?!?!?!?! May as well be the same price as the rest and get the options! The planes were old and dirty as well! Had the crew walking the plane to offer the Frontier line of credit? WHAT POOR TASTE!!!!!Te policy for what is considered a carry-on bag is even MORE rediculous!"

Pros: "The take off and landing were smooth."
Cons: "Charged for everything under the sun, how disgusting. Decided to save money by checking bag, huge mistake. Touched down 30 min early, however, baggage was delayed 2 hrs."

Pros: "Didn't die."
Cons: "Frontier now makes you pay for any bag you carry on or check on, meaning you need to add at least $70 to your round trip price. Then, keep I'm mind that you don't get to select a seat unless you pay another $20. When you finally do get on the plane after an hour delay and get your seat, you'll experience the most uncomfortable flight of your life in what can only be described as the equivalent of a folding plastic chair with fake leather glued to it. It doesn't recline, it has practically no padding, it has no head or neck support, the armrest is about 6" long and 1" wide to share with the overweight woman next to you, and the tray table is the size of an iPad mini. Whatever, brush it off and try to relax when they come by with your drink and pretzels, right? Wrong. Because the new Frontier Airlines has decided that they waste too much money on a cup of soda that must cost them a whopping 5 cents at the bulk rate they buy it in. You want that can of soda? $2 it is then. Bag of pretzels? $4 because f**k you, where the f**k else are you going to buy a snack at 34,000 feet in the air. To be perfectly fair, we arrived safe and sound, albeit late, and the people were friendly. That said, the measures Frontier has taken to inconvenience the customer just to make their ticket slightly cheaper is not worth it. I will not be returning. It's worth paying whatever the next best airline charges to avoid Frontier."

Cons: "Our flight was delayed a hour originally, then once to the hour, delayed aborted 3 hours and so on until it was eventual delayed 7 hours. When a southwest flight going to the airport as us schedule for a original take off about 10 mins apart left four hours before our flight.. Does not make since to me. I was unpleased with one of the flight attendants and her slight bit of attitude it seemed.. There was a open row and my friend and I traveling together just asked to sit there together since no one was in the isle at all.. After sitting in a small airport waiting for a flight for 7 hours I would have expected more welcoming service.. I will most likely not chose to fly with your company again..thank you Ashley Hietbrink ahietbrink16@gmail.com"

Pros: "The attendants handled the weather delay well, with patience, understanding and helpfulness."
Cons: "Weather delay for 7 hours. Had to pay $13 for my coach seat and $40 for my carry-on. Had to pay for all snacks except water. Very, very poor rating on all of the above. Frontier will now become my last choice."

Pros: "The quick boarding process."
Cons: "I always flew Frontier. It was my top airline. I loved it because of the TVs, the spacious seats, the service, everything. Now, I pay for every single thing. Frontier is the only airline where I have to pay for a soda, I find that ridiculous. We pay a lot to fly, and we can't get a free soda? I couldn't fit my iPad on the tray table because it's so small now. I miss having the TVs, and was not aware they didn't have them anymore so I was incredibly bored on my flight. I wish Frontier had the old planes and at least offered something complimentary. Never again. Sorry Frontier!"

Pros: "There was a male flight attendant. Very helpful and polite."
Cons: "Lady attendant had attitude over loud speaker regarding assigned seating. Passengers shouldn't have to be subject to someone's bad day."

Pros: "Fl"
Cons: "Services from attendant"

Cons: "On a redeye where seats did not recline at ALL. No check on how we were doing or offer of water...just a constant reminder that all beverages & snacks were for purchase. REDICULOUS that you are charged for carry on bags. Most likely won't fly with them again."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Seats were so hard and uncomfortable"

Pros: "Cheap airfare"
Cons: "Charged for everything including snacks and carry on baggage. Also seats don't recline"
