Airline reviews

Pros: "I appreciate that Delta leaves seats empty, for our health."
Cons: "Snacks were all sugar-laden. Not good for anyone!"

Cons: "When I pick up my bags"

Pros: "We needed a seat belt extender and one of the crew members noticed and was so kind in getting that. No embarrassment or drawing attention to the customer. His name? David"

Pros: "Friendly cabin staff and one of the most enjoyable addresses by a captain I've ever heard (and seen - he was out in the first class area when he welcomed us)."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Flight was late for one hour"

Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour."

Cons: "It was pretty hot on the airplane. Could have regulated the temperature a bit better."

Cons: "The seats could have been more comfortable"

Pros: "On time departure and smooth landing"
Cons: "More leg room. Stop nickel and dining passengers to appease investors. Delta is an evil corporation"

Pros: "Despite boarding late, and sitting on the tarmac for half an hour since we missed our take off time, and having to move passengers around to balance the weight on the plane, we made it home alive."
Cons: "We landed over half an hour late. Flight attendants needed to move passengers to balance the weight on the small plane, and asked for "volunteers." When there were none, the FA stood in the aisle and said we just weren't going to take off if nobody volunteered. They should have just MOVED people."

Pros: "Charging at every seat is great."
Cons: "All of the plane extras (e.g. WiFi, food service, etc.) were out of commission for some reason. Without WiFi, I couldn’t watch anything on my own device, and I would’ve had to pay for a headset that is compatible with your screens."

Cons: "The only problem with the food was it was all canceled because of rough weather."

Cons: "I’m would be much better if I can sit by my husband."

Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour. Missed my Easter dinner plans... :("

Pros: "Crew was nice, despite multiple hoardings and time delays."
Cons: "Plane was originally set to leave at 11:30 am, but was delayed until 3:00 pm for equipment. We boarded the plane at 3:00, the door was closed, and 30 minutes of waiting at the gate, where told to deplane, and the flight would leave at 5:06. There was another flight to San Diego, also delayed for hou"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "More discounts for frequent users."

Pros: "Seat comfort and crew. Atlanta customs was much more efficient in processing people."

Cons: "My flight was two hours late."

Pros: "Like Above"
Cons: "Like above"

Pros: "Entertainment available"
Cons: "All good"

Cons: "It was very hot in the cabin during the flight. Several passengers noticed."

Pros: "Smooth flight on new B757 with good entertainment system and Comfort+ seating legroom worth the extra cost but I was disappointed that the overhead storage bins above our seats were filled by pax from other seats before we arrived even though we were given priority boarding and the toilets were filthy."
Cons: "Boarding passengers should be more carefully controlled with amount and size of cabin luggage and where they place them. Toilets should be more frequently cleaned in flight."

Pros: "Had to cross terminals and the pathway was closed due to an international flight landing (poor planning on LAX part) so had to exit and reenter terminal through TSA. Flight delayed an hour then cancelled due to control panel failure. 10pm flight became 12am bus (and originally told it was 11.15pm bus which was "stuck in traffic" when google map traffic was all green). Got back to SD 4 hours after scheduled time."

Cons: "It was so late I missed my connection to sun valley flight. There was not another flight for 8 hrs!!! I think the sun valley flight should have waited for us. It was a matter of 10-15 min. Crew did not try to board people quickly to get us out of San Diego. 5 more minutes might have made a difference."

Pros: "It was on time. Flight crew was courteous. Plenty of room and comfy seats. Good entrainment media"
Cons: "Wish it would've had more movie options"

Pros: "Stewardess named "Mel.""
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat to "Comfort" for both of us. Bank account was charged for both. Got to gate and only one of us was upgraded. Gate agents said there was nothing hey could do, and that I had to call customer service. Nothing, in person. Terrible"

Pros: "Upgrade. Comfort. Gourmet Oatmeal Breakfast."

Pros: "The cinnamon cookies, the in-flight movie selection, and the helpful flight crew helped make this flight not as bad as it could have been."
Cons: "There was an infant in the seat directly behind me that chose to cry and scream through a large part of the flight. The mother of this child did not/was not able to keep the child from crying. Even with headphones on, this child's crying persisted to pierce the ears of every passenger within 5 rows of it."

Cons: "Boarding was ok however person sitting next to me, her seat was double booked. Luckily the other person also got Comfort seat."

Cons: "Had to buy another ticket"

Pros: "Price was reasonable"

Pros: "Flight kept being pushed back multiple times. left about 3 hrs late. Then after boarding and waiting to take off, the pilot tells us a light came on the "dash" and he has to have maintenance come to check it. That takes another 30 plus minutes. Not a good start to the morning."
Cons: "Never finding out what happened to the our original plane that was supposed to have left in the morning."

Pros: "Friendly Staff"

Cons: "difficult connecting to wifi."

Cons: "Took off late"

Pros: "Flight crew was great and made the flight that more memoriable ."

Pros: "Quick easy flight"
Cons: "The terminal was a long way from the main terminal and accessible only by shuttle bus. Also we had to re-check our bags following our first leg flight and subsequently couldn't change our flights to an earlier departure."

Pros: "An open seat next to me"
Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "Everything was great!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 35 minutes. No reason given."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "No individual movie screens and no way to connect to the one movie on the flip down screen since I didn't have the American Airlines app."

Cons: "Unbelievably poor customer support. They accidentally canceled my flight and when I tried to retrieve my seat back, the lady was taking it as somebody else problem... If the AA was the one made an error of canceling my seat, I wished they would show at least an attitude of taking responsibility to fix the problem."

Pros: "Staff was awesome!"
Cons: "As was getting in line for security, overheard it was at least a one-half hour wait. The wait was actually pretty close to 1/2 hr."

Pros: "Quick and easy thanks"

Pros: "My daughter liked the movie Gifted on the flight. Only decent experience in 2 days of travel"
Cons: "Worst experience with an airline ever. Never going to fly AA again. They lost 3 valued customers."

Pros: "Sittings on the tarmac for 90 minutes no airs no waters. 114 degrees"
Cons: "The very least employees should offer customer some waters to cool of"

Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "Well organised"

Pros: "Roomy aisle seat"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Plane full, like traveling in a cattle car, jammed in, My minimal contact with flight crew was fine, flying these days on any airline in coach is the same, American neither the worst or the best, in flight movie was the trolls, horrible movie"

Cons: "Flight was delayed arriving, connecting flight was in a completely different terminal = they didn't wait for us and auto booked us on a flight out the next morning. We requested our bags and drove home instead. Horrible."

Cons: "We missed our connection because of American Airlines incompetence. That being said the flight itself was ok."

Cons: "Could not read paper when passenger in front reclined seat. No space between rows."

Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"

Pros: "Boarding was swift. Gate staff was friendly."
Cons: "Phone charging stations at gate were down at every gate in the terminal. We waited nearly 45 minutes on the plane at the gate for a "flight attendant that is going to hitch a ride to make a flight from San Diego to Charlotte." This was obnoxious! We waited for almost as long as the flight was scheduled to take. Poor form."

Cons: "Took my bag for no reason, I flew there with it."

Cons: "just like above + I had previously requested a vegan meal that had been confirmed and I was presented a "dish" of pasta loaded with cheese and was told that that was vegan ... 9 hours flight with no food The sound outlet on my seat was broken and, again, no entertainment for the entire flight"

Cons: "Missed Connection."

Pros: "Great service!"

Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Cons: "It did not happen! Had to taxi to Austin!"

Pros: "Fast shuttle to our hotel"
Cons: "Heat"

Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Flight was canceled... apparently they won't be able to get me home until 24 hours later than I was scheduled to get there. Standing in line 5 hours later still waiting for vouchers. My bags already went to san diego. Customer service has been confrontational. Terrible all the way around."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "HORRIBLE!!!!"

Pros: "They sat my family together and the crew was amazing."
Cons: "The seats are really uncomfortable and the flight was really packed with all this covid stuff."

Pros: "Easy boarding"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight attendants talked loudly the whole flight. Very uncomfortable"

Cons: "Free beverages"

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Not having so many extra charges and having to pay for a carry on"

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: "All wa great"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Quick"

Pros: "Cost of flight"
Cons: "Extra charges for everything! Couldn’t even get a cup of water."

Cons: "Extra charges for everything! Asked flight attendants for a cup of water as I was not feeling well and was told I could buy some water. I was also told my carry on was too big when it clearly fit in the container at the check in process."

Pros: "timeliness of the flight professionalism of the crew immediate attention to a passenger who fainted"
Cons: "passengers were cold and there were no blankets to be offered there were no hot beverages and it was very cold. all beverages were for purchase and yet no complimentary hot coffee nor tea, even if you wanted to pay"

Pros: "It was great"

Pros: "Affordable but no free water or snax"
Cons: "Cheap feeling seat. Thin plastic shells packed tightly together. But hey- its cheap!"

Pros: "Boarding was better than other airlines."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and do NOT recline!"

Cons: "Delays!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The $17.00 i paid to insure the flight was not honored. I had some health issues and needed to cancel. I was then told that the airline I chose through your site, won’t honor it. I am furious and am owed my refund."

Pros: "Friendly staff!!"
Cons: "Hour delay on flight"

Pros: "Price"

Pros: "Quick flight and overall nice crew."
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Plane, staff, made best of bad situation. Seats are only OKAY to Good, but NO airlines are really comfortable so by comparison they were good"
Cons: "The delay - this time not due to the airlines, so thus the good review."

Pros: "Boarding speed and flight"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, does not recline, even water is for sale."

Pros: "The plane was clean"
Cons: "You have to pay to choose your seat, to have more than one carry on bag (literally of any size!!), and for any food. Nothing is complimentary. The seats don't lean back at all. No headrest adjustment for any sort of comfort. The seats are hard. We had a 30 min. Delay for some reason we were not made aware of and no apology was made. No Tv's or even a pocket in the seat-back in front of you. Basically if you can fly anything else other than this airline you are probably better off. Delta is basically the exact opposite of this airline and even American does way more. If I can help it I will never use this airline again."

Cons: "After the horrendous delays getting to my destination I just bit the bullet and bought new tickets (duplicates) on a different airline to get back home-- rather than risk a repeat experience. Ended up costing an extra $300 but at least I didn't have to spend an entire day in an airport trying to keep my 7 year old from losing his mind."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No wifi"

Pros: "Very efficient service... for a first experience we were pretty impressed because your review overall were not that great. Good job."
Cons: "The airline nickel and dimes for everything."

Pros: "The original booking price was great."
Cons: "All of the additional charges for the flight may make other airlines cheaper. You even have to pay extra if you pick a seat before you check in at the airport. If you don't print your ticket online or save it to your phone, you have to pay extra for that too! Overall, the worst part about the flight was that the seats are actually very uncomfortable. I'm not sure if this flight was now worth the original case posted."

Pros: "Flew 2 different legs with Allegiant, both of which were delayed for maintenance stuff. 2nd leg, we sat in the plane for an hour waiting for a maintenance guy, so my wife went to the bathroom. No toilet paper! When my wife asked about it, she was told "we won't be getting toilet paper for this flight." Inexpensive is one thing, but...dear lord!"

Pros: "More room in seats. Low prices Nice staff."
Cons: "NO DRINKS!! not even water is complementary!! NO SNACKS!! Not even pretzels!! WOW! You have to pay for your carry ons. You have to pay for your checked bag ($50!) You are only allowed 40# in your checked in without an additional fee."

Cons: "No issues"

Pros: "No complications and efficient boarding"
Cons: "The people that stand up when the plane stops even though they are going to have to wait till the door opens and everyone in front of them has to get off before they do."

Pros: "The plane departed on time. The crew was very friendly."

Pros: "Loved their crew and the way they contacted you over the internet to remind you to check in, etc."
Cons: "NOTHING BAD TO SAY-a 3 1/2 hour flight on a comfortable, well piloted plane beats a connection from LAX that ends up being 8 hours for travel that day all hollow!"

Pros: "First time flyer on this airline... I loved that it was a DIRECT flight halfway across the country."
Cons: "Where to start... i guess for starters EVERYTHING is an upcharge. I was suprissed the seatbelts were included! Less legroom than a Cesna 152 and surrounded by 159 of my closest friends. And i mean SURROUNDED. That cabin is SO tight! So tight in fact the seats are a blow mold plastic with roughly 1.5" of foam and fabric. Think go-cart bucket seat with some foam rubber and pleather. Then there's luggage... My carry on bag (that I've used for 15yrs) was too big for the jig at the counter so got to check it for an additional $10 (above the $30 i had to pay to bring it) and they charged me $40 for my original check bag. The hitch is that they only allow 40lbs ($1/lb) for that check bag when the rest of the industry says 50lbs is the norm. Oops, gotta pay for that too! And wait for it... sodas are $2 in flight!"

Pros: "The prices are good. Anything additional (food, overhead carry on space) is an additional cost but this is how they make the tickets cheaper for people who don't need extras."

Pros: "I like the flight. It was on time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that they canceled the entire flight on the day of the flight so I had to pay for a last minute ticket which was much more expensive!"

Pros: "The crew was awesome! They were friendly and very focused on their passengers. The plane was clean and the flight, itself was great. Worth flying from Oregon to So. Cal., will do again. Loved the flight times, and because of them, we were able to have half a day on departure day (Thursday 3:30 pm) to drop off dogs, pack and run errands and some work and arriving back home (Tuesday 9:46 am) gave us all day to work and get ready for the week."
Cons: "Plane did not board or leave on time, spent a lot of time waiting both on and off plane. I also did not like being hit with the taxes and fees at Alamo, after booking through Allegiant. Those should have been included in the initial payment, because I could have rented same vehicle for $40 less through Alamo website,(final payment w/ T&F's) That was a waste of your customer's money."

Pros: "The flight crew was nice."
Cons: "The staff at Ft Lauderdale airport was not customer focused. They were disorganized and rude. My friend paid $5 for his ticket to be printed and, at the very least, they should refund that. I'll never fly Allegiant again."

Pros: "It's really annoying to stand in line, get to the attendant and then be told to step aside and download an app for your phone and check in (and especially check bags) that way. I don' know the security or privacy of that app, plus it is just tedious and annoying."
Cons: "Seats on Allegiant are terrible, and charging to print out a boarding pass is awful. Charging for water on a flight where you have no other options for water should actually be illegal. Shame on them for that."

Pros: "friendly staff, good take-off - landing, all that jazz"
Cons: "Not knowing it would be a late take off. Other than that, very good."

Pros: "Plane was roomy and comfortable."
Cons: "The Plane WAS NOT CLEAN! The turn around of the plane was so short that you guys did not take the time to vacuum the interior of the plane. My seat and other seats in my row was full of cookie crumbs and sticky food from the previous passengers. It was totally disgusting. Yuck !!"

Pros: "It's ridiculous have to pay to bring a bag on your airplane it's ridiculous that your staff at the Medford airport or unprofessional and lack common courtesy."
Cons: "Gate staff at Medford Oregon airport were rude and unaccommodating"

Pros: "Excellent direct flight at good price"
Cons: "Flight 339 not listed on TV monitors at Boise airport"

Pros: "It was fairly clean and the flight wasn't crowded."
Cons: "Flight boarded late, $2 charge for water (and it's not even good water), and no free carry on."

Pros: "They opened the door when my friend was late"
Cons: "Nothing they are great"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "First time flying Allegiant: Head's up! They charge you for EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING and the overall experience is awful. Would you like to know what it's like to fly on a plane bound for extradition to a foreign prison...fly Allegiant Airlines. Would you like to experience the unexpected thrills of being nickeled and dimed at every turn....fly Allegiant Airlines. Would you like the answer to the question posed after paying $100 for two carry-on's: 'could this get any worse?' Answer: It does!...fly Allegiant Airlines. Here's how it all starts out they welcome you to the terminal with a wonderful opportunity to pay $5 for printing your boarding passes (unless you download their app). How could a piece of paper that small that no other airline charges you to print cost $5 you ask? Well that is the magic of Allegiant Airlines at work, if they can't make something simple; both costly and annoying then you aren't flying Allegiant Airlines. You then inquire at the check-in desk can my loved one and I sit together, and they say sure but you will have to do that at the gate. Ok some positive news here...but then it sinks in.. wait a minute what Airline are we flying again? ...Allegiant Airlines, and what is their motto?? If it is simple and easy it shall become both costly and wildly inefficient. You arrive at the gate with hope in your heart and they then tell you, umm no. Who ever told you that is a fool! You can make no changes to your seating this is a 40,000lb aircraft with a 300,000lb lift capacity and it can't handle you sitting next to your girlfriend it would compromise the avionics and we would all surely die. Then why on the app did it show open seats? Seats of course for a price! Not by section like a normal airline ohhh noo a price that was completely different for every single seat as if the seats were in competition with each other in some high altitude economy that makes far less sense at sea level.The helpful response to this inquiry was 'oh well that was then' I am looking at it right now. I don't know what to tell you.. What's next?! A surprise $50 charge per carry-on! Unless you read the small print on one of their emails that is filled with advertisements they make it look like another advertisement, I'm going to go out on a limb and say INTENTIONALLY as it is never mentioned on: (The check-in email, the purchase confirmation email, not mentioned by the ticket counter, not anywhere on the app, not written anywhere on the electronic ticket despite them announcing otherwise) They instead tell you right as you are boarding the plane and have absolutely no choice in the matter and have done this innumerable amount of times as the flight attendant was well versed in de-escalation protocol and a security guard was positioned an arms length away as she deftly charges your card on file... I have run out of characters for this post I can only assume this comment section is run by Allegiant Airlines.."

Pros: "Paperless boarding was awesome and FREE, no flumbing for boarding passes at TSA or terminal gate. There was no entertianment on this short flight and I didn't buying any food or drinks so I have no rating for this section. To my surprized I was able to purchase Show tickets at a great discount on board only, very cool! Flight was on time both ways! Seat Confront was tight but the website made it clear the seating would be on selected seats and since I didnt pay for the upgraded seating you get what you pay for."
Cons: "The on-line section process was challenging to purchase tickets, not real user friendly had to keep going out of the site and back in again and then after payment was complete the baggage section was incorrect so it had to be fixed at baggage checkin, the baggage fees are cheaper on-line verses at the terminal but max weight was 40lbs the industry standard is 50lb. Didnt like having all the extra fees. All in all there was still a big saving as to going directly to SW Airlines"

Pros: "Cheat, direct flight from LA to Boise."
Cons: "Absolute bare bones. Like riding the city bus."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything went perfectly. Thank you."

Pros: "Finally sitting in my seat"
Cons: "3 hrs late sucks"

Pros: "It was alright"
Cons: "It was united I should have used LAN"

Cons: "The $25 each way for piece of luggage"

Pros: "Plane was clean. Also liked the fact there was a plug to charge electronics."
Cons: "Didn't like having to wait 30 minutes for a gate once we landed. That seems to be consistent and growing issue at LAX."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed, rude stewadess"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "At this point, I needed a drink and placed an order with the stewardess. She never brought the drink. What is up with you guys?!?"

Cons: "freezing on plane"

Pros: "It was on time staff was professional and friendly b"

Pros: "Check in was easy. bags made it."
Cons: "Sitting on the runway because of security "issue.""

Pros: "Landing and leaving"
Cons: "I paid extra money for a better seat and it was crowded and uncomfortable. When I walked back there were plenty of more comfortable seats empty!!! I wasted $80!!!"

Cons: "Small plane, seated in very back row, unable to tilt seats back. no food no service."

Cons: "Delays can happen but gate changes were way too much. And the lady at the gate desk was very unkind. When I ask some info she almost yelled at me! She said she just announced, but some ppl might have been at the gate and some might have not. God, I was not there to get a lecture."

Cons: "It's too bland and they charge you for your luggage. The ticket wasn't cheap to begin with."

Pros: "Fantastic service"

Pros: "The accuracy"
Cons: "The chairs"

Cons: "They held us on the plane from Indy to Chicago for so long that most of us knew we were going to miss our flights. I ran all the way to my gate to discover that the plane took off 10 minutes earlier than it was supposed to. I was told there were no other flights to LA and I would have to get a hotel until tomorrow. I was only going to be in California for 2 days so every second counts, so when I became upset the man checked again and found me a seat on a plane that took off in an hour. I was grateful but at the same time I was kind of displeased that he didn't offer that to me originally."

Pros: "Fast"

Pros: "It was on time which was good"

Cons: "Tooooo small"

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Waited half an hour to take off"

Pros: "Friendly staff"

Cons: "Was asked to pay $25 extra for my luggage. That should have been disclosed up front on the ticket. Not happy"

Cons: "."

Pros: "overall the trip was pleasant, i dont like my 1 carryon be selected to not go in the overhead when groups like couples or families get to take on a few - but i did receive my carryon in a timely fashion considering we were not let off board after 15 min of landing"

Cons: "They lie about carry luggage space. The somehow don't want the overhead space to be full and force your luggage to be checked in when boarding. You'll end up spend possibly 20 more minutes waiting for your luggage after arrive."

Also the carry on bag fee is different for every passenger my wife and I were charged to different prices and the seats suck knees hit the back of the seat in front of you and you must sit straight up the whole flight not even room for a full size try table."

Pros: "New planes, seemed clean and well taken care of. Staff was nice."

Cons: "Lost my bag and the lines were insane!"

Cons: "Gate attendant was snippy."

Pros: "I had to cancel my trip plans and went to cancel and found out that not only would I not get a refund on the flight but I also was not going to be able to get a refund on the seat selection. Front tier has nickeled and dimed me to a degree that I would never Fly them ever."
Cons: "They have a low flight charge but then you have to pay for everything else that you want. You have to pay even for carry-on baggage. You have to pay for any seat selection other than in the back of the plane. when all is said and done, their prices are equal or higher than any other carrier."

Cons: "Plane was dirty"

Pros: "The price was very reasonable."
Cons: "No entertainment options. It would be nice to have byod options."

Cons: "Computer systems were down and delayed boarding by almost 45 minutes."

Cons: "I hate me being stuck in the middle seat . yimour seating system is unfair . You charge for seating in the isle or window seat . That is ridiculous . I will never fly with ur airline again"

Pros: "Planes are newer, seat backs are thinner which gives the impression of more leg room, not very comfortable though unfortunately."
Cons: "For what looks like a competitive airfare consumers get up charged when it's time to get your seat assignment (ie. pay $9 or $15 or $30 MORE for a seat on the plane when it's time to check in - not disclosed when you book through Kayak of course). To be fair, there was 1 seat available for $0, it was in the last row in the middle...1 seat. I also experienced a first...getting charged $30 to bring my backpack on board as a carry-on. Airlines are now charging to put luggage in the overhead compartment. Same carry-on luggage you'd bring with you on any other airline for free, apparently not on Frontier. $30 for a backpack, wow. Apparently Frontier also claims 'we don't participate in TSA Pre-Check', meaning it's great if you have TSA Pre-check, but given Frontier doesn't 'participate' in this program even if the consumer has paid the $100 and cleared to checks to use this program (which is awesome), if you fly Frontier, you can't use it, they won't put the 'TSA Pre-Check' denotation on your boarding pass. Huh? I get companies like this shooting for operational efficiency, scaling lean, profit maximization et al, however this airline feels like a total money suck from top to bottom. 'We have snacks available for purchase'! Of course you do Frontier, of course you do."

Pros: "Worst flights and airline"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and smooth"
Cons: "Entertainment: there was none."

Cons: "I didn't like how it was delayed for 2 hours. I bought this ticket to get home to see my fiancé because he was coming home from deployment. Then with it being delayed caused problems"

Cons: "Same as above."

Cons: "Everything I hated"

Cons: "We had to wait for an hour on the plane to take off due to a luggage loading problem. I was over an hour late getting home."

Cons: "I chose Frontier because I got a great price on the ticket. But I had not realized that they charge for bags ($40 for a carry-on) and seats. So by the time I paid those additional fees at check-in I could have been in a full service carrier: One that then did not charge $2 for a soda, that has seats that reclined, and so on. It's a safe bet that I'll not be flying Frontier again"

Cons: "The pilot seemed inexperienced . Felt like on the job training during the decent and landing in OC"

Cons: "The checkin line in Denver was ridiculously long. Seemed like frontier was the only airline with this problem. Several people didn't make their flights despite arriving plenty early."

Cons: "The seats no longer recline making them uncomfortable. Carryon luggage is charged even a soda is charged! Probably will never use again."

Pros: "Frontier is not what it used to be. Your nickled and dimed. I will avoid using Frontier in the future."
Cons: "See above."

Cons: "$40 charge for carry on bags, charges for drinks or snacks? I'll fly Southwest from now on."

Cons: "No water or any beverage offered. A new low even for Frontier."

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "1/2 of the trip help with a wheelchair in Denver but not at Santa Anna either way.I had to track one down."
Cons: "Charging for baggage!"
