Maybe not treat the passengers like cattle.

Very good service, on time, excelent. Equipment

El servicio a bordo excelente, Pablo una gran persona, pero el atraso en la salida fue demasiado

Pros: "Very friendly crew and the plane arrived in Costa Rica 30 mins early!"
Cons: "I have a JetBlue credit card and I’m very disappointed that membership to the credit card does not offer priority boarding or zone A or zone B boarding. I was in seat 6C and had boarding zone E! Every other airline sponsored credit card I own offers some form of priority zone seating; even Spirit!"
Cons: "The flight fly on time"
Cons: "Very happy with my flight. Very nice new airplane.Jet Blue has become my preferred airline."
Cons: "You need to teach those who make announcements how to properly speak and annunciate. They are terrible. They speak so fast that it is very very very difficult to understand."
Pros: "The seat wasn’t bad. Not too tight of course I’m only 5 feet tall. Enough leg room for me."
Cons: "I’m not sure if it would improve boarding time, but maybe calling the people at the end of the plane first to starting boarding until the front of the plane gets called last."
Pros: "Crew."
Cons: "Not many kid friendly videos."
Pros: "Crew was great, flight was on time, arrived early."

Pros: "Best coach seats EVER!!!!! Friendly staff!"
Pros: "Had booked Syracuse to Pittsburg to pick up new truck at Washington Ford. Truck never came in, despite being in transit for well over a month. Called Jet Blue the day before, and found change fee was more than cost of flight. Dealer said they'd cover, but I have no guarantee. Truck still not in. Can't book flight until in. Dealer not very communicative. The whole world is a mess. What can I expect?"

Pros: "when we finally left it was a fast flight"
Cons: "the delay"
Pros: "The convenience of landing and being so close to home. Only wished there were more flights avail with better times."
Cons: "1) The time of this flight is a bit much. I understand that it is close to my home but I know if Jet Blue adds 1 or 2 more flights, they would totally get booked up. The leaving JFK at almost midnight and then the time difference is horrible. 2)This flight had a child that got sick and we were delayed about 40-45 mins. Totally worth it but it made for an even harder time getting in at almost 630am PR time. 3) The turbulence was horrible. We were warned but so many customers were getting sick. Its was unpleasant to say the least."

Pros: "What a difference from the cut rare airlines! We had been taking spirit in the past, but am so glad we used jet blue this time. We never got the feeling of just being cattle herded to a destination. Using a real airline is the only way to go!"

Terrible experience with my last flight. Delayed then canceled left me stranded in Ghana March 8th. I cannot contact Delta (in Ghana or US)

Departed 25 min late with no explanation. Arrival time was very off due to late departure but would have appreciated a better estimate.

As always, Delta never fails to deliver! Let’s keep climbing!

Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "The boarding"

Pros: "Food good"
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth and the crew were helpful, efficient, and polite. There was a good assortment of entertainment."
Cons: "I ordered the beef tenderloin, medium. It came out extremely rare and I had already eaten some by the time I realized; the entire plate was filled with blood. I ended up sick to my stomach for the remainder of the flight. Average height to tall individuals do not fit well laying down in the seats."
Cons: "Being on time. First it was a problem with the plane but that was fixed quickly. Then it was something about de-icing the plane which took over 40mins which made my son and I miss our connecting flight. The weather didn’t just happen. They should have been prepared."
Pros: "I like flying delta. They always serve drinks first"
Cons: "It’s such a long flight. Not your fault."
Cons: "The sits are uncomfortable"
Pros: "We got on we took off and arrived as scheduled. Just as it should be."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "flights all on Delta - about one a week for 3 months straight - and yet when Delta cancelled my flight and re-booked they did not give me any upgrade or loyalty as I saw it - I had paid extra for Delta Comfort and they told me the flight they re-booked me on simply did not have any comfort available. However, I was not the one canceling the flight and re-booking - that is their problem and after so much loyalty for years I feel like I should have gotten some kind of upgrade for free...If I have to cancel - I have to pay fees - but if they cancel - I lose ...despite being a very loyal SkyMiles customer. I am quite disillusioned with Delta now and will have to look around to see what other airlines there are now - and my entire family - and what kind of loyalty they give to their loyal customers. It needs to be a two-way"
Pros: "Flight turned out great... but I got lucky!!! Got a seat I wanted... now praying the same occurs on return trip"
Cons: "Not being able to assign my seat until I got to the gate!! Terrifying not to be able to choose seat fir such a long flight!!! Do not ever want to be in this situation again!!!"

Cons: "Kids yelling"
Pros: "Great,I loved it!"
Pros: "friendly courteous staff"
Cons: "didn't have the tapas box, or the crave box or any food box for sale...the flight attendant did give me extra cookies and pretzels"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and clean. I enjoyed the basics of drinks, snacks, carry-on, seat selection, and entertainment for the price of what other airlines charge for just a flight with nothing else included."

Pros: "Courtesy and attention to detail of crew"
Cons: "The stewards crew was very very very rude. The airplane looked like its going to come apart any minute. We could actually see rust in the wings of the airplane. I think the plane should be retired, for the sake of the flyers!!!!"

Only sad part is one bathroom worked in entire aircraft! And one Barbie sized bag pretzels 🥨 doesn’t cut it

Everything was on time and no problems

Extremely late

Pros: "Non stop flight. Excellent departure time."

Pros: "The crew was awesome"

Pros: "The agent at checkin was so kind, nice, professional and superb...I will always fly American Airlines....you have the best checkin agents, best gate agents (super funny yet professional) and also the flight crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "baggage claim in Costa Rica is terrible service...but that is the airports fault since this happens with other airlines.....something has to0 change!!!!"
Cons: "The personal device entertainment wasn't working, which made for a long, dull flight."
Pros: "The crew was great. No leg room, seats and isles were too narrow. Had a soggy turkey wrap both going to and coming from Honolulu. It was not what I expected from AA. Will not fly AA again on a long haul."
Cons: "Everything!"
Pros: "Flights are on time, and the information on the app was accurate and timely"
Cons: "Not much... it was the easiest flight I’ve taken in some time!"

Cons: "Better seat options and more comfortable seats"
Pros: "There were very helpful when we really needed help."

Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."
Pros: "British Airways seats"

Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."
Pros: "Can’t say anything good"

Cons: "Space!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient, the pilot kept the passengers informed about the delays and updated gate info, etc. well. The seats and interior were cleaner and in better shape than I remember from the last time I flew American."
Cons: "The flight was delayed waiting for crew. The pilots arrived, then a couple of stewards and finally the last steward. Then had to de-ice and wait in line for takeoff. Made my connecting flight with 6 minutes to spare. Never received beverage service. Took 20 minutes to do the first 6 rows and then was discontinued because of turbulence."
Pros: "Got two seats to myself."
Cons: "I don't even know who our flight attendants were. Did we have them? Isn't that a requirement?? Guy in seat in front of me was super rude (yes, I know it's not the airline's fault.). Terrible turbulence (again, not AA's fault)."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"
Pros: "On-time departure and arrival; room to stow carry-on's; able to move to vacant row to give both the other guy in my row and me some extra leg room."
Cons: "If the exit row seats are completely vacant, ask the flight attendant EARLY in the boarding process if you can move into them. I asked a good 10 min. prior to departure from the gate and was told I couldn't do it then. The FA let me move after takeoff and the obligatory "You're in exit row seating ..." briefing."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"

Pros: "Reasonable space the plane was clean and the on board service was good"

Pros: "No fees for carryon, like Republic charged on the way out"
Cons: "NO seats available on booking, without paying extra. Never could sit together, even though booked together. Greedy but stupid."
Pros: "Getting through security was a lot better than I thought. Also, I had plenty of room and the overall ride was smooth."
Cons: "I just wish that there was a little more room and easier ways to earn miles and entry into the lounge."
Pros: "The extra leg room, giving everyone a free movie screen. Over all experience was better than any other airline I have experienced."
Cons: "Iwould like my money back notting i bever made it home"
Cons: "Had to be rebooked due to safety issue on my departing flight and lost my connection in Washington DC. Hours of sitting."
Cons: "I was going to miss my flight and so I called the AA and they would not credit, reschedule or do anything for me. I had to just waste the money as the change fee would be just as much as buying a new ticket. Teaches me a lesson for every straying away from Southwest."

No problems

It was delayed 10 hours so really sucks

Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Inflight movies"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system, it is outdated"
Pros: "Amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "Podrían dar comida, el viaje no es tan corto. Aire acondicionado demasiado frío, muchos pasajeros solicitaron regular l temperatura, no habían suficientes mantas"
Cons: "Flight was canceled due to United's mismanagement of crews."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"
Pros: "Comfortable seats with screens"
Cons: "Mediocre snack"
Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."
Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."
Cons: "Seats were hard and stiff with no padding on the backrest. There was minimal room and even less overhead storage. The seats were in between the windows so you couldn’t really see outside of someone else shut the window on you. Thein"
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"
Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Staff in Syracuse where awsome from the guy at the united check in Guest to the TSA Gal who had to give us a patdown super sweet and helpful."
Pros: "everything was on time and no one got kicked off of the flight!"
Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."
Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."
Pros: "Paying for extra leg room"
Cons: "Customer service is terrible. I dislike 'having' to travel to Midwest. Options are terrible. Delays, delays. No leg room"
Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"
Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"
Cons: "That they gave my seat from Chicago - Denver to someone else. Was sitting in the waiting area. Waiting to be called in, couldn't understand the person talking. They also did it to another person. Will never fly United again after this trip!!"
Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"
Pros: "I actually liked the smaller plane! There was more room on the flight than I expected"
Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"
Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."
Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."
Pros: "Just the crew"
Cons: "Now when I fly united i feel like flying with spirit or jet blue o any other cheap airline, they charge for everything but sodas. They don't even carry blankets. The fact that for a long (3h- 4h and 5h) flight (took 4 overall during the holidays) united didn't offered ONE movie for free at least was very disappointing. Not one of my flights were on-time!"
Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"
Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."
Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"
Cons: "Having to walk a LONG distance from one terminal to the next and almost missing my flight due to delays. Then we had a delay from the bridge from plane to the airport was not working!!!"
Pros: "I missed my flight due to an unexpected car accident. The first two Kayak agents I delt with tried their best to help me by calling United and getting the fees waived for me, but they had no luck.The third agent was successful. All three agents were wonderful, compassionate and wanted to help. The third agent was successful and I appreciate all that was done for me."
Cons: "On both legs of my flight, I watched an hour of a movie on my iPad using United's app, and then the network failed. And I couldn't get the first movie on the second leg, so I couldn't finish either. Very frustrating."
Pros: "United entertainment was amazing!"
Cons: "Flight attendants were fantastic!"
Pros: "The staff was really polite and were willig to answer all questions with a smile."
Cons: "The seat I was on could not be reclined. This was most unpleasant because it was an overnight flight. You should earn the clients - even economy passengers - when this seat is the one being assigned to them. I would payed beforehand to get a more comfortable seat if I'd known I was to fly on a no-reclining seat on an overnight flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed the flight due to "operational difficulties". I understand this happens, however, their communication towards customers was unacceptable. They first announced a 20 min delay, followed by another 30 min, then 30 more and then 30 more than then 30 more! They basically kept us at the gate for 2 1/2 hours until the found another plane. For a business like United, and flying out of their hub this is completely unacceptable. We ended up leaving at 11pm for a flight scheduled at 8. They didnt give anything in the plane to make up for it. No food, no free wifi, nothing."
Pros: "The fact that I had to rent a car and drive ... When I bought a flight ticket."
Cons: "Oh geez flight cancelled, what didn't I like?"
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."
Cons: "Small loud plane"
Pros: "Terrible"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "I felt like tuna in a can."
Pros: "Flights was ontime"
Cons: "Plane was too hot, and then way to cold. This seems to be a re-occurring problem. I am not sure why the plane can't just be set to be be 68-72 degrees. There is no need for it to be above 80 or less than 60."
Pros: "The crew that helped get everyone booked on another flight did an outstanding job. Too bad we had to sit around for 3 hours to find out that the flight was canceled."
Cons: "Not enough communication as to the flight being canceled. Too long to inform us that it was canceled. We were told that the flight was always on time with the exception of the past few days. We were told that the service was starting to slip."
Pros: "newer, quieter jet"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"
Pros: "We had a delay and everyone was very helpful!!"
Cons: "3 hour delay"

Federal mask mandate was a joke, no enforcement at all, just several repeated announcements. MANY passengers ignoring mandate.

Making people pay for water is sad especially for a 4 hour flight. Also on the flight from NY to CO the only option was water and not other beverages. The seats were very uncomfortable and the tray table design has a user experience rating of 1 out of ten.

Cons: "Frontier charges for the first carry on after your personal bag. Aside from that, no issues."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Paying $200 for baggage was a rip off. Having to claim baggage and recheck in Chicago was ridiculous. Getting unchecked from our flight because we arrived too early is beyond belief."
Pros: "Quick, easy. Friendly staff.."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "So grateful for all of the help we received!! Thank you!"
Cons: "Nothing!! First time flying with a broken leg...wheelchair, emotional animal, crutches...you guys were AMAZING!"
Cons: "I miss getting a free drink (other than water) and a snack during my flight. It would also be nice to be able to charge my phone"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The fact that we landed and had to wait 30 mins I almost missed my connection flight to la"
Pros: "Seats are not comfortable"
Cons: "A complementary cup of tea. $50 for one luggage is a rip off. My 1st time flying with frontier. I had to wait 45 minutes in my wheelchair to go to gate."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours and weren’t told why. Then baggage was delayed being offloaded from plane"
Pros: "The flight boarded quickly and smoothly. The attendants were happy and full of personality. Inexpensive direct flight!"
Cons: "We were about 30 minutes late to land even though we took off on time. The snacks and beverages are not complementary; they cost extra."
Pros: "Wonderful. To have a direct flight"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Flight was super fast and convenient. Glad to have something like this in Syracuse! Staff was very efficient."
Pros: "We took off 10 min early and arrived 27 min early!!! Pilot’s 2 announcements were friendly and informative"
Cons: "It was hard to understand the flight attendant’s announcements"
Pros: "Straight flight"
Cons: "Straight flight and nice prople"
Cons: "From check in to boarding and then flight all were fantastic. We were traveling with 2 kids as well under 3"
Cons: "I have flown Frontier on and off for the past five years. Today really deterred me from wanting to fly them ever again. Two separate kiosk issues with my friend's ticket, unable to use the website either, waited in line for seat assignment and finally, off to the races, but we were too late after all of these setbacks. Missed flight. Disappointed."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The 45 dollar charge for my Carrie on luggage the up sell on the snacks , drinks and credit cards"
Cons: "Terribly long bag drop line. Also very slow to get bags at baggage claim. Overall mediocre flight. Will never fly them for any flights longer than 2 hours. A lot of nickel and diming with these folks."
Cons: "Tight seating"
Pros: "Arrived to out destination early"
Cons: "Not sitting with my mate unless I pay extra for side by side pictures."
Cons: "Tight seating and fact you charge for 1sr checked bag and even coffee/drinks"
Cons: "The delay and boarding was a nightmare"
Pros: "Very nice, very clean plane (with multiple bathrooms). Everything was exactly on time and boarding was a breeze. What more could you ask for? Especially on a budget."
Pros: "First time flying frontier, staff was very nice, I checked my bag and paid the standard fee like every other airline. The seats do not recline and are ultra thin, I think this made it more comfortable on the shorter 2 hour flight as it seemed to provide more knee room. I think customer experience could be brought up very easily with better online/app and mobile boarding pass. The plane didn't seem old and seemed inline or slightly above for its price point. I'm ok with no real food or entertainment especially with 4drink being free, but in flight wifi should standard even on a discount flight."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "They charge for: a checked bag, a CARRY-ON bag, and your seat choice. There is no on-flight entertainment. The seats don't recline. The check-in counter has massive lines of people and is clearly understaffed. The gate is frequently empty and abandoned with zero people to answer your questions. Flights are late without good reason. Gate agents are understaffed, uninformed, and frazzled. Gate changes were poorly communicated and disorganized. Frontier management and leadership: you should be embarrassed."
Pros: "Not booking with them again"
Cons: "The first flight to ohare was delayed due to pilot errors for 5 hours, the 2nd flight was cancelled for the same reason"
Cons: "The line to checkin for flight was very long (not enough employees). We were told to go to Gate 20, then told to go to another gate along with two other flights. Waited for hours with no information as to what the problem was or when the flight would leave (same for other two fights). There were no Frontier employees in the terminal to be found to ask. It was all very unorganized! Finally one employee made an anouncement that we had no flight crew. Again waited in line for hour and half to talk to the one employee working the desk. Then waited almost two hours for bag at baggage claim. Still did not get luggage. Had to pay to stay in hotel and book flight on United the next day. When I tried to ask a Frontier employ the next morning where I should go to find luggage he was extremely rude and said I had to wait in line with a bunch of other people trying to check in and others that were on a flight that was just cancelled. There is not baggage offfice like other airlines have - they are too cheap!!. Their fairs are cheep but they nickle and dime you to death with baggage fees and seating feas, seats are cramped and uncomfortable, employees (the few they have) are rude. I think the airline is extremely cheap, unorganized and pathetic. By the way, i filed a claim on my luggage on line as directed by the recording you get when you call (because there is no one to talk to) and now received an email that I need to file claim with the baggage office at the airport. What baggage office??????"
Pros: "Everyone was helpful"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The value proposition and direct flight to LA was incredible! The model that Frontier has adopted is fantastic, and as long as they continue to lead their marketing with the value proposition, they can not lose!"
Cons: "Add $2 - $3 and include simple water or sodas on the flight. I thought to bring snacks and drinks, so we were OK, but many didn't and I think that it provided a negative customer experience for a small fee."
Pros: "Price was affordable but could be better with poor comfort conditions"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating for someone who is 6'5". Very poor considering how comfortable midwest express used to be!"
Cons: "I left a bag in the airport, and they did not issue a guest pass to help me retrieve it. While the police and other flight agencies they should issue it. The person at the counter was indifferent, and lazy."
Pros: "The desk agents at San Diego airport were helpful, poor people. I can only imagine the headaches they get from trying to fix Frontier's issues satisfactorily. That is about the only positive thing. Frontier's help phone line was ridiculous and when I finally got a person they were non sympathetic to my issues and completely not helpful."
Cons: "Fair warning: never fly Frontier. My flight from San Diego to Denver and then on to Atlanta was bumped the first day because the plane "broke", which would cause me to miss my connector. The airline put me in a hotel, which was fine (even though I had to pay a $200 security deposit that actually accidentally ended up being $400 and I didn't get back for 4 days). That next morning, I got a text saying my 6:15am flight was delayed by more than an hour, so I called Frontier and asked about my connector times. They told me I would have 10 minutes to disembark the plane and make it to the next gate and, if I did not, I would be stuck in the Denver airport for 12 hours. I asked if that was the case would they put me in a hotel.....they said no. I asked if I changed my flight to the next day would they put me in a hotel....they said no because it was my choice to change the flight (as if that is a choice). Thankfully, I know people in San Diego, so I stayed with them that night. Next morning I take an Uber at 4:30am (at the cost of $30+ dollars) to the airport only to find out that the flight was severely delayed again (no text notice this time from the airline). When I say severely, I mean my 6:15am flight was rescheduled to leave at 10:45am. That would, once again, put me missing my connector. I waited in the line with the 50 other passengers to talk to the desk agent for quite a long time. At first, the agent told me that I would have to wait until the next morning again. I then told him my plight and the events I had already been through. He found a route that would take me at 11:35am from San Diego to Denver then have a 2 hour layover, then fly to San Antonio, then finally get to Atlanta at 12:20am. So, that is me arriving at the airport at 5:00am Sunday morning and getting into Atlanta at 12:20am Monday morning.....over 16 hours with the time change. So, I had to take it. Frontiers way of making up for all of this nonsense? They gave me a $100 voucher to use towards future flights. Basically a worthless piece of paper I will never use."
Pros: "Everything went great"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Where to begin in this one. To start the flight was delayed for about 10 hours. Life happens delays are inevitable but thy way frontier handled this was absolutely the worse customer service I have ever witnessed For starters after the initial delay the flight was removed from the departure board. Only a single intercom call was made regarding the delay of the flight. After this every passenger was left in the dark. Only by asking other airlines were we able to find our new exit gate and leave time. Tens out that was wrong as well and the frontier employee in staff left as soon as possible and refused to answer questions. I contacted customer support, who belittled me for missing my flight. I was told that the plane had departed at 1245 and that I should have been at the airport an hour before the departure to ensure I was on the plane. During this entire time I was staring at the plane right outside the window. There system had lost track of the plan. After being transferred to a supervisor he spent about 20 minutes trying to figure out where the plane was before he listened to me telling him t was right in front of my eyes. They lost a plane... He then attempted to explain the delay which I already knew more about than him from all of the other passengers pooling our knowledge. The supervisor (id#881311) refused to give me a guarantee or promise that e would provide a way for us to all be informed. As of this point no annocumebts ha been made, the departure board was empty, and all websites stated that we had left an hour ago. However after my phone call in about 10 minutes the website updated to show that we were now delayed until 730. Sill no information was provided in terminal. The entire flight proceeded to go to the ticketing counter in an attempt at some reimbursement for this inconvenience. There was only two frontier employees inside the entire terminal at the time. They had to be badgered for refunds. After hours we were finally given 15 dollars in food coupons... The only reimbursement for this entire debacle. No more information was provided until we boarded the plane around 830. The flight crew provided no reimbursement or sincere apologies and the entire passenger base was treated as if we were the issue. When leaving the aircraft the flight crew was unsure if which baggage claim we would be going to find our luggage so we were directed to three different claims Frontier is a disorganized uncaring and unflinching airline that is only still around by some unknown miracle. They have a 1 star review across the board on all review sites I could find and it was well deserved."
Pros: "Price was it"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours MSP to DEN, then delayed DEN to SAN. Overall, 7 hours added to flight including 50 min sitting on the runway because they didn't clear the gate."
Cons: "My flight departed over an hour late, because the airplane arrived long after the scheduled departure time. I was just able to catch my connecting flight."
Pros: "The direct flight!"
Cons: "- I was charged $60 for a carry on bag which was not listed as an additional charge when booking via KAYAK. in total I will end up paying $120 for 1 carry on luggage. Everyone I met was confused as it was the first time they paid for carry on luggage. - representatives were rude. - no leg space between seats. Seats could not be moved back to relax. THE WORST thing about the experience was None of this information was available on kayak while booking. I will book from Expedia next time."
Pros: "I liked the seats. They didn't seem worn out."
Cons: "The price of drinks and food. They should be comparable to a grocery store if you're going to charge for every little convenience."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, does not recline"
Cons: "The boarding time was 440. At 336 we were told the gate will be closing because the capitan wants to leave early. How is that possible when the flight I PAID for says boarding at 440 and leavino at 510? I don't think that makes any sense. Super frustrating"
Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "dishonest with customers on delay times, and not enough communication during delayed boarding and arrival time. Both flight departing from LGA and departing from ATL were two hours delayed."
Pros: "a smooth landing on a very turbulent day thanks pilots"
Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "I booked my flight months ago and when my wife and I got to the airport 2hrs early we could not check in at kiosk we had to wait in a long line to speak with someone. When we got to the counter we were told the flight was over booked and we would most likely have to take another flight. The counter personal was rude about it, didnt even apologize. We got to our gate, the personal there looked at our tickets and said there was no space. After i got upset and explained i was going to my brothers wedding, another women came over (from frontier) still didnt apologize, grab our tkts and gave us seats. Wtf!!! I mean i couldn't believe that after i paid for something i had to get upset to get them to fly me where I paid to go. After we boarded and we were the last to board there were alot of empty seats! I feel like they would of made us take another flight even though there was space. So all that happened in addition to the most uncomfortable seats iv EVER been in and the plane was super warm. I have a return flight and that will be the last time I ever fly Frontier. I will pay $100-$200 more per ticket to not fly Frontier.I will be sure to tell everyone I know about my experience and ensure that our company (Audi) flights are never through Frontier."
Pros: "Staff was professional and helpful"
Cons: "Seats too close to each other. Chairs hard. Cleanliness marginal"
