Cons: "poor hospitality by cabin crews poor toilet smell, business class can smell the poor toilet if the door is opened"

Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of snacks and drinks on such a short flight."

Cons: "Nothing, the flight was a rare perfect 10/10"

Pros: "The flight left on time and landed 15 mins early. Staff was nice and attentive."
Cons: "The organization for boarding in zones."

Pros: "Quick and easy."

Pros: "The flight from Dallas was on Wednesday the 8th of August. It was scheduled for a 32 minute layover, which turned into a 30 minute layover. My son, who I booked the ticket for, ran all the way to the connecting flight's gate. They'd already closed the doors, and wouldn't let him on. Consequently he had to be re-booked onto the next flight, which didn't leave until 2200."
Cons: "Did I mention that he'd taken a Greyhound bus to Dallas from Memphis on Monday the 6th of August? He got to DFW airport on plenty of time for his flight to Scotland. It should have been DFW to JFK to Glasgow. Delta cancelled his flight. Citing "weather issues." My family researched this, and couldn't find any weather issues in the North East or NY area."

Pros: "On time. Seat upgraded seat to Delta Comfort plus, courteous flight crew, music before take off and landing."

Cons: "Almost an hour late leaving the gate."

Pros: "Upgrade to ComfortPlus"

Pros: "Nice plane, comfortable accommodations, great crew."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."

Cons: "I was first in line for a 1st class upgrade. They didn’t upgrade me but when I got on the plane, the flight attendant randomly asked someone if they wanted to move to 1st class because of an open sest"

Pros: "Mobile entertainment was great and the crew was lovely."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed, which is a understandable part of travel. But what made it worse was that we didn’t have any visibility on our actually departure time. We were first told our flight would be delayed an hour, then the departure time was moved up 40 minutes without any clear messaging. We caught an email from Delta, but if we hadn’t, we might have missed our flight. The plane was also abnormally loud on board, and the air pressure seemed to fluctuate throughout the flight, making the experience uncomfortable."

Pros: "Great airline stewards"
Cons: "Suggestion- Overhead bin should be assigned to the seat the person is seated in."

Cons: "Pretzel mix was lacking in quantity and taste."

Cons: "SofinwS turned off for most of trip"

Cons: "We boarded on time and were ready to leave the gate early. Somehow the pilot and air traffic controller managed to take 1 hour for de ice and takeoff even though we were 2nd in the queue. No excuse!"

Cons: "Bullshit seating...will happily put frequent flyers next to the freaking toilets."

Pros: "Good service, more leg room than American Airlines."

Cons: "."

Pros: "Just over 2hrs only. Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "A bit of turbulence due to weather (no fault of the airlines)."

Cons: "Delta should change their name to always delayed"

Pros: "Nonstop quick flight"

Pros: "Weather, I think, caused a delay for my flight to Atlanta from Dallas which results in missing my connection. I was traveling with my 4-year old granddaughter. However, when I arrived having already missed my flight, I found special assistance area and was able to immediately connect with an agent who booked us on the next flight (last flight of the day to Richmond). Saving the day."
Cons: "All the planes were full and did not have enough room for carry on causing delays and getting the flight off later. The gate agents and crew did what they could to get the plane loaded faster, but they loaded the front first and those in the back could not get past making loading the plane take even longer."

Pros: "The African-American gentleman flight attendant was extremely helpful, funny, engaging, and service exceeded normal expectations! The plane had blue lights & calming music on in the cabin."
Cons: "The plane didn't have full catering options."

Pros: "Nice flight. Early arrival. Had a complementary beer onboard. Luggage in less than 20 mins."

Pros: "Nice staff, great accommodations"
Cons: "Uncomfortable, very hard to sleep."

Cons: "Veggies and salads: gross - should have been blanched. Mid- flight snack was literally frozen. The meat had ice crystals!"

Cons: "There was a problem with the plane and we were stuck with very warm conditions for 2 hours and 40 minutes before we took flight."

Pros: "Great crew and new plane."
Cons: "The seats are so small and almost no leg room. Very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Sad to say nothing"
Cons: "- boarding is poor in NY - service in plane extremely bad. Need to train their flight agents -they stole perfumes ((4) bottles and my watch Overall the worst airline I flew so far"

Pros: "Easy and safe flight to destination. Not meant to be a 5 star hotel."

Pros: "Everyone was so helpful. The flight was very quiet and peaceful."

Pros: "I loved the Movies that I could watch, Charger plug ins as well as the service. No extra hassel."
Cons: "Everything was fine. The flight was on time and I made it home safely."

Pros: "Exiting the plane and finally getting out of cramped seating!"
Cons: "Seats were very small. Touching the person next to you is uncomfortable and awkward! I am not looking forward to the long flight home."

Cons: "A lady in AA counter at AA DFW counter. She was rude and not helpful. at all."

Pros: "Dame coments"
Cons: "Same coments"

Pros: "I liked the crew, they were nice and tried to help, food and refreshment was good."
Cons: "1) Flight from Dallas delayed and caused me to miss the connecting flight from London to Vienna. 2) Monitor for the entertainment not working AT ALL. Crew tried to reset it multiple times, but it didn't help. So flight was longer due to delay and I was looking at the BLACK SCREEN entire time. 3) I attempted to read my book. Since it was a night flight and overhead lights were off to prevent disturbance, I needed to use reading light. Well, the reading light was not working. I called a flight attendant to assist me. She tried to help me, but confirmed that it was out of order. 4) There was not information regarding terminal for my connecting flight. Captain kindly referred us to look up this information on our individual screens. Mine was not working, neither was the screen of the passengers next to me. Not helpful at all."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No leg room, hot plane, airline staff is friendly but clearly bored."

Pros: "Cleanliness of plane, attitude of crew, on time"
Cons: "0600 departure. Too early."

Pros: "Liked the ease of traveling from DFW to Corpus."
Cons: "The crew, especially flight attendant Brittany, were rude, and she was beyond rude and actually the backend of a donkey. She snapped at us about a carry on that wasn't an issue traveling to DFW., then ignored me (have a boot and crutch) when seats with more room were available...then did nothing to help get my crutch from the storage."

Pros: "Excellent entertainment options"
Cons: "Wi-fi not available for most of the flight. Very uncomfortable middle seats for long flights such as this one."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No entertainment. Learn from TAM in Brazil and offer entertainment via smartphone / tablet. No food service."

Pros: "I was just happy to get a flight out early the next morning when my Thursday afternoon flight was cancelled."
Cons: "I ended up in a middle seat due to having to be rescheduled, but it was still comfortable."

Pros: "Got to my destination on time."
Cons: "Where to start? How about when I checked in at the counter, I asked the check in attendant to add my FF number on my ticket. They said they'll get right to it, handed me my tickets and sent me on my way. It never happened. Not a big deal, I can request the mileage post flight, but still something. Look at my tickets, that I had booked a week in advance and specifically reserved an aisle seat. My ticket says "Priority Verification," whatever that means. Turns out it means you don't have a seat, and you get the worst of the worst. So what seat is the worst? How about the middle seat in a row of 5. The middle in a row of 5, on a transoceanic flight... What kind of airlines has 5 in a row? The guy next to me spent $300 for his ticket, I spent $1200, for the same flight, and this is the kind of seat I get? The plane felt like it was straight out of the 90's, carpeted center walls, old seats, tiny tv's. Overall, a plane that felt had not been updated in decades. Took 20 minutes for a flight attendant to respond to the flight attendant sign. This wasn't during beverage or food service, just a normal time at cruising altitude. They also don't have eye masks. Every other transoceanic flight I've been on has them provided in the seat pocket, American Airlines doesn't even have them on the plane! Economy class has no USB or power outlets, the in flight entertainment is about a 5" screen in probably 260p resolution. Decent selection of movies, but you have to join the movie in progress or wait approx 10 minutes for the next movie to start. Legroom was okay unless you had one of the entertainment boxes in your way, then that takes up 30% of your space. Some of the tray tables do not have cup holders, on the top, bottom, or anywhere on it. Also my table was tilted, so every time I put a cup on it, it slid right off. Seems like a minor complaint, but eating dinner and fighting a sliding cup the whole time is a pain. Dinner and breakfast tasted decent, but you can tell American is cheap on the food. Most airlines will give something like a main course, a bread roll, fruit cup/salad, juice, small dessert. American gives you the main course and a fruit cup and that is all. Crappy utensils too. Overall, if I had paid maybe $200 for the flight, I wouldn't have any room to complain, but because American holds the government carrier contract for FY17, I had to fly on them at exorbitant cost, and would never recommend them to anyone."

Pros: "Great food, comfort, and smiles :)"

Cons: "in the gate the crew didnt let me took my only hand bag i have with my personel things including my medcian and cupe machine for brithing they say that my bag is big but itwas in the standert that i was allowed to take up to airplane i think the reason was i was the lat passenger to go in the air aplein and no space t o put the hand bag"

Cons: "Missed flight at london. Had to go to abu dhabi and Hyderabad. Very bad service"

Pros: "*Kosher* meals are always better than regular meals on AA. Served first and meals are fuller and of higher-quality (on AA, at least)."

Cons: "my luggage was lost between Dallas and St petersburg russia and I waited 5 days to receive it"

Pros: "Movies and plugs"
Cons: "This WAS the worst flight I have ever been on! First no pilot then no gas. Then turbulence the entire flight basically. AND THEN when we landed we couldn't even get off of the plain because there was no one to help us off??!!! Also they were out of food. It was just over all horrible."

Cons: "Because it was a day later!!!"

Pros: "Almost half empty cabin made this a very pleasant flight!"
Cons: "Food on AA was mediocre as usual. Edamame salad was nice and fresh for a change. Desserts are now prepackaged wrapping similar to candy bar..."

Pros: "The food and drinks were great. Flight left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "This flight was actually on an American 777. One of the older models. For an almost 9+ hour flight, the in-seat entertainment systems need to be upgraded. The seats did not have USB charging capabilities, the selection of movies at the seat consisted of about 8 choices, and the screen size wasn't much larger than that of an iPhone 6 Plus. This was supposed to be a British Airlines flight, but it really was an American flight. I expected to be on a BA aircraft, which would have probably been upgraded."

Pros: "It served the function of crossing the ocean. The crew was kind."
Cons: "The airplane was outdated. It did not have personal entertainment suites at each seat. I haven't flown across the ocean without being able to choose my own movie in 3 years. Also, because of the outdated entertainment suite, the headphone jack is located in the armrest to the side instead of in the seat back in front of you. This caused me to bend my 3.5mm headphone connection at one point while I was moving my leg, because the connection jack is located below thigh level. The temperature was unbearable, and could not be controlled by the flight crew. Dressed for winter weather and roasted for the entire flight. I actually was dehydrated when we landed because I was sweating for 7 hours crossing the ocean."

Pros: "An old aircraft but well maintained. Crew was courteous and efficient. No food or entertainment"
Cons: "Delay in receipt of baggage at Chicago"

Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Need better crew the lady serving the snacks looked moody."

Pros: "It was very smooth once we were able to take off!"
Cons: "We were delayed in the plane almost an hour with no cool air. They had technical problems."

Cons: "food"

Pros: "Went business class and was truly spoiled. Did an evening flight. The seat laid down to a flat bed. Boses headsets, facial refresher packages were provided. The food was wonderful and the wine was above average. A must experience!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nice, comfortable planes."
Cons: "Food quality could be improved."

Pros: "Everyone was friendly, the flights were on time, the food was great."
Cons: "There was very little leg room and few entertainment choices."

Pros: "My husband and I were traveling together to Dallas, and we were unable to sit together-The ticketing agent was very rude when we asked if she could find us seats that were together. She said, "We could ask someone on the flight to switch with us". We paid $738.00 total for both tickets to Dallas, and found it very hard to believe that we could not get seats that were next to each other. We have had this same situation on other airlines, and they were very accommodating to our needs."

Pros: "slight delay but they made up the time in the air"

Cons: "As stated above, I was late for my flights."

Pros: "Comfortable seats although it was a bit warm."
Cons: "I booked with Finnair and paid Finnair however my extra luggage fees were charged by another airline who charged 30$ more per bag than what I saw on the Finnair site. Really put me in a sour mood to pay so much extra money."

Pros: "As I was sitting there waiting to board the plane I started to have anxiety. Watching how many people lined up to get on the plane made me a little nervous. I even thought about renting a car and driving from Dallas to OC California. I waited until i was almost the last person to board. What a pleasant surprise. I was seated between 2 lovely people who probably could have but didn't hardly talk the entire flight. The conversations we did have were pleasant, and they slept some of the time without snoring. It was a very nice flight home! And I'm thankful I didn't rent a car. Flying is much quicker!"
Cons: "Same as above answer. Boarding the back of the plane first makes so much more sense! I'm totally sure you all have your reasons for doing it the way you do since you have been doing this thing for years now, I would just do it different."

Cons: "IT WAS AMERICAN NOT ALASKA!!!!! ALMOST MISSED MY FLIGHT!!!!!"

Pros: "This is not an experience I would wish upon anyone."
Cons: "My booking for some bizarre reason had my name on it twice and I was out of luck. Air berlins does not have a counter in any of the airports. If you are flying this you are on your own. If anything goes wrong you'll be stuck calling a 1800 number to Germany. Worst experience of my life had to buy a new ticket at the counter for 5k dollars to get to Berlin with family."

Pros: "Great entertainment."
Cons: "Food was not very good. Leg room was lacking."

Pros: "We did eventually get there"

Cons: "Flight got 3 hours delayed at dallas"

Pros: "No problems, smooth and quick flight."

Pros: "Crew, great. Flight smooth."
Cons: "Our equipment was a bit older, reminiscent of the plane featured in Die Hard 2: very 90's chic"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled with no reason provided. All rebooked flights were also cancelled. Had to rent a car to get to my destination at 10PM"

Pros: "Got lucky with a newer airplane. Great entertainment system. Minimal interruption by the pilot and crew."

Pros: "The crew was magnificent"
Cons: "Be nice to offer a glass of water to your clients!!"

Cons: "The female flight attendant was not good"

Pros: "Our flight attendants were awesome!!"
Cons: "A/C was a bit cold, but would rather be cold than hot."

Pros: "The crew was very nice, but not terribly attentive. Chicken option for dinner was too spicy and no warning about it or I would have chosen something else."
Cons: "We were being bumped around constantly all night. I’m sure there is a reason the pilot didn’t change path or altitude, but it made sleeping impossible."

Cons: "Over two hours delayed. Had to carry on carry off my bags that were heavy. Messed up my schedule. Had to incur extra charges at San Diego destination due to the inconvenience."

Pros: "The crew seemed willing to reebok flights and they didn't get angry or upset at the passengers."
Cons: "The broken lavatory caused a 4 hour delay. It was a difficult experience because we were kept thinking it was going to get fixed soon but it wasn't."

Pros: "On time!"

Pros: "Seats comfortable. Easy boarding."
Cons: "United couldn’t seem to get gas in the airplane and we had delayed departure from DFW. Upon arrival to Chicago we taxied for 22 minutes to the gate causing rushed connection to Munich. Baggage did not arrive at Munich so now we have no luggage."

Pros: "the flight attendants and service were amazing and perfect. The green tea from All Nippon Airline was awesome."
Cons: "All the food were terribly salty, inedible because the beef was hard like rock, I was unable to eat or chew. The sauce was salty and terrible so threw them away. In general, the food were inedible and poorly prepared that means they were not considerate and discreet about cooking, selecting material,too. The airline only pick the terribly cheap meat to scam and mistreat the passengers. I felt I was ripped off and sadden."

Pros: "Well we enjoyed the crew on the United flight, the food was terrible, and the entertainment options or below average. In the end we both hurt our neck trying to watch TV on her phone. Other airlines at least offer you entertainment options that do not result in you having neck pain afterwards"

Pros: "Boarding was easy. Just waiting in line to get on a plane. Pretty easy."
Cons: "No problems with the flight from Dallas to Chicago. Very quick and easy flight. Chicago to Paris was a bad experience."

Pros: "Friendliness of Crew"
Cons: "Seat handles would not go all the way up. Did not make for enough room with an empty seat righ beside me."

Pros: "Great and organized service at gate. Very friendly staff considering that they were having to work on Thanksgiving."
Cons: "I expected more current movies on the in-flight entertainment system."

Pros: "courtesy an comfort."

Cons: "The entertainment unit did not work."

Cons: "Entertainment could have been better."

Cons: "This flight was cancelled, so I can't say how the flight was. However, I can say that in my 20 years of travel, this was by far the worst, most stressful experience I have ever had. I was placed on 2 other flights with 2 other airlines and wasn't notified until AFTER I was already checking in with another airline (this is also after calling the airlines regarding the cancellation, several hours before heading to the airport). Worst experience. Do not recommend."

Pros: "I have metal leg braces. The staff was helpful getting me from terminal to terminal. They were very helpful."
Cons: "Having a leg brace makes difficult I am blessed I can move a little without them. I had to move a short distance without my brace. No place to put it back on."

Pros: "Everyone was very friendly"

Pros: "Was nice"

Pros: "the fight left on time and had no issues."
Cons: "The size of the seats. The space between the seats. Would it kill United airlines to give up one row of seats and give people a little more leg room."

Cons: "Long wait on Tarmac and not being able to add my boarding pass to my Apple wallet"

Pros: "Loved ability to watch movies on iPad and phone for free"
Cons: "Complimentary nuts..."

Pros: "Space boarding and flight"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Friendly steward, boarding staff very good , no delay"

Pros: "Something to entertainment"
Cons: "Dont have music or screen tv"

Pros: "Excellent service."

Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, plane old and shabby and staff unfreindly and unhelpful."

Pros: "Service and price"

Pros: "Nothing, because I did not fly"
Cons: "Due to some reasons I want to change the destination, but it seems to cost me an extra amount of 230$. I just cancelled my trip and I dint fly neither my amount is refunded"

Cons: "Last row and packed. United not willing to allow you to upgrade while in the plane, and their mobile app does not offer it either. Not to mention the other crew member dead heading and being less than helpful. Customer Service is not their thing."

Pros: "Everything was good ."
Cons: "No breaks or offer,to buy like bacon n eggs or sasage"

Pros: "Everything else was fine"
Cons: "Not a lot of smiles"

Cons: "Over a hour delay ! Stuck on the plane taxing than problem the gate 230am and I'm still stuck here"

Pros: "Pilot told us as we were waiting to depart, the flight woukd be delayed an hour for unknown reasons .... And then it wasnt! Yay!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Maybe this flight attendant woke up on the wrong side of the bed, but she was rude. When asked a question, she seemed irritated and said she couldn't answer because she had "clean up to do." While taxi-ing she told flyers over the PA system to "sit down. You're not getting off now anyway." The 35 min flight to Chicago was delayed over an hour due to mechanical issues"

Pros: "Trip ruined"
Cons: "Flight delayed extremely and destroyed plans for the weekend"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "I was so comfortable and I got to sleep"

Pros: "The seats were very spacious and comfortable. The flight was very smooth not a lot of turbulence was present and the weather was good which contributed to the smooth flight. I flew economy but even we were treated to a snack and drinks."

Pros: "The time of inflight service"
Cons: "No inflight wifi"

Pros: "Free beverages"
Cons: "Crowded seating"

Pros: "They had wifi :)"

Pros: "New plane, wifi, arrived 27 mins early"

Pros: "Flight was delayed and had to wait 2 more days to leave."

Cons: "waiting on the plane for an hour for take off."

Pros: "Glad there was a late evening departure available after the Bowl Game. Convenient so we didn't have to spend the night."

Pros: "seats excellent service"

Pros: "The price for ticket outstanding!"

Cons: "Didn't get to get on flight due to your error"

Cons: "We sat on the tarmac in DSM for an hour!!!"

Pros: "Nothing. My flight was cancelled 5 mins before departure with no explanation."
Cons: "Nothing. My flight was cancelled 5 mins before departure with no explanation."

Cons: "Hidden Fees, thankfully we could afford the extra $20/seat. On the first leg of the flight it was 100 degrees in the cabin, and there were NO beverages available at all. We were told there would be a 5 minute wait on the tarmac before unloading...we've been here for 45 minutes with no end in sight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4.5 hours for maintenance issues, we had to cancel all of the plans I made for the day. I was at the airport for nearly 7 hours and then had to wait on the replacement plane to refuel for over an hour after boarding. Awful."

Cons: "Traveling with a child is trying enough, not to mention a delayed flight too Denver and then on the way back. Poor communication from staff letting the restless passengers know what was going on .... flight attendants were not friendly, didn't even acknowledge our child. The seat back trays were awful and poorly designed."

Cons: "Late 21/2 hours waited another 30 minutes to shuttle inn"

Pros: "Plane in good condition and relatively comfortable"
Cons: "Was an hour late taking off"

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant. The flight was the cheapest I found. The pilots on the round trip were very capable."
Cons: "The reason why it's so cheap is that they charge for everything. For some reason the site combined my first and middle name. I noticed when checking in and was prompted to change it. I was then showing a $400 balance even though I had already paid for my ticket months ago. I called customer service and they luckily updated it for me. The person then proceeded to tell me if I check a bag, bring a carry one, or want to choose a seat, there will be a charge. $60 just to bring a checked bag (27 lbs by the way) round trip. I opted not to spend even more money on the carry on and seat. I've seen other airlines charge for seats, but they're typically upgrades and you can choose another available seat for free. Not Frontier. If you don't want to pay the site tells you it will choose a seat for you. I don't know what the point of checking in 24 hours in advance is juat to be put in the last group no matter what. Speaking of seats, these were plastic, tiny, and uncomfortable. Speaking of uncomfortable, the plane felt like it was going to fall apart with even a hint of turbulence. Overall not great and I may have to go elsewhere for plane trips in the future. But that's up to Frontier."

Cons: "Slow to board, slow to take off, nickle and dime you for everything and anything. NOT a fan of frontier."

Pros: "Front ones were nice."
Cons: "These 2 ladies need another job. Customer Service is NOT in their vocab"

Pros: "The pilot did a great job of landing in very windy conditions."
Cons: "I've been flying for many years, and I miss the hospitality of the free snack and drink."

Pros: "Flight was quick and cheap. Checked bag fee was reasonable."
Cons: "Carry-on bag fee was way too high. Personal item policy was too strict. Seats are not roomy enough for a larger person 6 feet tall or over. Seats did not appear to recline. Cabin was a bit hot."

Pros: "Smoothness of the flight. The staff."
Cons: "No snacks. Uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "Services and very good pilot !!!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I was unaware Frontier had gone the ultra economy route like Spirit and started charging for Carry On and printing boarding passes. Should be disclosed up front, not after purchase."

Pros: "Okay price, but person next to me reserved after and was able to buy at half the price"
Cons: "Planes are old and not maintained well. Both flights were delayed due to airplane maintenance issues."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic. They were funny, polite, and very professional. The boarding process was very smooth and quick."
Cons: "The seats are awful as they no longer recline and have very little padding making the trip seem exponentially longer than it actually is. Carry on prices are absurdly expensive ($45) at the airport for one little duffle bag that was barely too big to fit under the seat. Food and entertainment are no longer provided on short routes so you better bring something to do!"

Pros: "The crew was great. No issues getting on board and we arrived on time. No issues with the flight."

Pros: "crew was fine, but plane and seats were old"
Cons: "The whole process is a little deceptive. Thought I had booked an inexpensive flight, but by the time I paid to select our seats, ($35.00 each for a decent seat, even $1.00 for 2nd to the back), paid for luggage, paid for a coke, my total cost for two of us almost doubled."

Pros: "Smooth landing."
Cons: "The added charges for my self contained firearms."

Cons: "60 dollars to check a bag 35 dollars for a hard plastic seat that didn't recline."

Pros: "Seats were super affordable. Plane was new and nice. Flight crew was very professional. Overall really good experience. I will definitely fly Frontier in the future."
Cons: "The seats are really jammed together, and I am not a large person. The plane was an Airbus A319. Nice plane, but the seats were not very comfortable. Any flight over two hours would be unbearable. I am just being picky. No complaints really."

Pros: "Uneventful flight"
Cons: "I asked the attendant for water, but he never brought it to me."

Pros: "I liked the crew. And the flight was on scedule. Also, the flight had very little of turbulence."
Cons: "I don't like the fact the seats are so close and hard. And very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Pilot got us here safely!"

Pros: "Other than waiting a long time, everything else was fine."
Cons: "The flight left 40 minutes late and then once I got to baggage claim, it took 30 minutes for the bags to come out. Extremely long delay made me late to where I was going."

Pros: "NOTHING!"
Cons: "The worst experience in all my years of flying. Carry-on fees, unexplained carrier imposed fees, seat fees, bad service, no complimentary beverage service. Spent nearly the same amount in fees as I did on the ticket. Will never fly this airlines again or recommend. It's clear why frontier was on the worst airlines list next to spirit."

Pros: "CHEAP!"
Cons: "Flight delayed 4.5 hours for mechanical problems so we didnt arrive in Dallas until 340am. I understand these things happen but g'dam how bout a contingency plan Frontier"

Pros: "They got us there alive. Boarding went smoothly. Everyone was more than happy to exit the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "Not having flown for 6 months, we were not prepared for the nickel-and-diming that Frontier has become. The astronomical baggage fees were a complete surprise- they were nearly as much as our tickets. And why charge us for the same bags there and back? They charged for picking your seat, they charged for a soft drink,though we think they likely waived the fee for breathing their stale air. The staff, historically great, were short and clearly frustrated with what their roles had become, with looks that shared our incredulous stares of bewilderment. We used Twitter to voice our frustration and though they replied quickly, they said we could negate a percentage of the fees if we joined a new but obscure program... which of course charged us more fees. So sad to see our favorite airline reduced to this impractical, impersonal money-grubbing caricature of corporate greed."

Pros: "Basic seating was ok, but not comfort based."
Cons: "Finding out at the gate and not at counter (where we paid to check bags $30) that we needed to pay $45 per carry on. No this flight became an unexpectedly $200 more expensive"

Pros: "I liked that I landed safely. That's about it."
Cons: "Where to begin? First of all I have extreme flight anxiety. So from the get go I'm on edge about getting on a flight. When we arrived at the airport to check our bag, which I had ALREADY paid for online when I booked my flight, the attendant told me it would be $40 for my bag. Why in the world would I pay $40 more for s bag I've already paid for? I explained to her many times it had already been paid for. Unfortunately she wasn't cooperative and I wanted to actually make my flight so I just paid the $40. So, for my departing trip I spent $70 total to check a bag which is what I am most unhappy about. The flight itself wasn't exactly enjoyable. No free water.. No peanuts or anything.. The staff was subpar. They looked like they hated their jobs. Neither of the attendants on the plane ever had a smile on their face. There was a 3rd but I probably saw him once. Idk where he was the whole time. The seats were extremely uncomfortable and I felt crowded. I know planes aren't suppose to be exactly comfortable, but let me just say that the only other airline I have flown with before was spirit and I would rather fly with them again than frontier. I was expecting a much better experience since spirit is supposed to be the bottom of the totem pole but this wasn't the case. I'm not looking forward to my flight home."

Cons: "The plane was very hot inside, on the ground and in the air. The cost was more than expected. We had to buy bags. We ourcgased seats so we could sit together."

Pros: "The only good thing about the flight was the friendly crew and the skill of the pilot. He had the best landing I've ever experienced."
Cons: "The seats the comfort sucked we have no space at all. The boarding took forever."

Pros: "Timeliness Clean Cabin Great Value Friendliness of Crew"
Cons: "Slightly cramped seating, but what I expected."

Pros: "FRONTIER took 25 minuts to get the bags onto the plane and 45 minutes to get our bags off the plane and to baggage claim"

Pros: "Not much you can do about the weather, but we were given very few updates and those we could barley hear."

Cons: "Too many children crying. Seats very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Outstanding customer service by Susie (from Barbados) in DFW. They went out of their way to accommodate us. She even sung happy bday for mom's birthday. I have a special needs brother and they let him board early to give him extra time. Above and beyond, we absolutely love this airline. They are the megabus of the sky. Sign up for their frequent flyer program. Tickets are insanely cheap and economical, you can fly for $15 if you do it right by joining the yearly program ($50 annual) and responding to the emails. We booked 5 adults CVG to DFW 6 days out for $123 a piece when Delta and other competitors wanted $500 to $600 dollars. Pilots have a great sense of humor, flight attendants were super attentive and helpful. Be careful on the bag restrictions, my advice is travel light with carryon. The rest is pay for play but you can jet-set for stupid cheap and still receive superb service. I can't say enough great things about this airline. We are booking at least 7 to 8 more flights with them for the next few months for the price of 2 tickets with any other airline. Rivals Jet Blue or Southwest level of experience for fun but absolutely crushes all other airlines in value. Best flight experience ever!!!!!!"
Cons: "Almost nothing disliked about this airline. Read the bag criteria rules closely. They do distinguish between personal item and a minor bag fee for carryon. Don't really have any complaints at all as this has been my best travel experience with an airline ever. Without a doubt my new go to airline for travel in CONUS"

Pros: "Fast and easy flight."
Cons: "One of the other passengers took my window seat. Didn't want to get a hassle to make them get up, so I didn't say anything."

Pros: "I like the low prices. Usually Frontier is on the cheaper side."
Cons: "There are a lot of hidden fees and rules and regulations. BEWARE! Luckily someone cut me a break since I had nvr ridden on Frontier. Most of the staff seemed a lil rude. The plane was super late. Frontier requires you to get their app if you don't want to print off you're boarding pass. This is the age of technology, why am I printing a boarding pass? Worst security I've gone through."

Pros: "Got there safe"
Cons: "Fees"

Pros: "Positive attitudes among flight staff Loved the polar bear decals on the wings Comfortable and relaxing flight"
Cons: "Only a lag with the check in counter machines"

Pros: "It was a smooth flight, on time arrival and departure"
Cons: "They are smaller planes so it is a little cramped, but for the price"

Pros: "Getting a pre-board was easy, since I need a wheelchair in the airport. Having my seat changed to a window from an aisle was done by my wheelchair assistant, and made my day."
Cons: "My "bargain" flight wasn't really a bargain. All the extra charges made the price much higher. (the upgrade to a window seat would have been $35 if not for my hearing disability). And the seats were hard and flat. Is this the trade off for "lower fares"- being uncomfortable, cramped and thirsty during a two hour flight?"

Pros: "The flight was very inexpensive, so that makes up for a lot of things I didn't enjoy. You have to realize you are flying a budget airline, something that is newish to the USA. Europe has had them for a while and they are just the same, point A to point B, super cheap."
Cons: "Tray tables are tiny tiny, could barely fit my drink and a snack on it. Seats are not that comfortable."

Cons: "I knew I was going to miss my flight so I called Frontier to get on another flight that same day, if possible. They said a ten o'clock flight was available and then said they needed to send me to billing. After 10 minutes of being on hold they disconnected me. This same routine happened a SECOND time. By the time I called back a third, the flight I was trying to get on was full. I had to pay $300 to fly with another airline to make my appointment. Frontier only offered to accommodate me by reducing the cost of changing my flight from $110 to $75 and get me there a day late. Their customer service is the worst. I will avoid flying with them again, if at all possible."

Pros: "I was looking for an affordable flight to go on a weekend visit and I found a great rate with Frontier. The flight was boarded and departed in time. The aircraft was large but the seats are small with little padding and little leg room. For a two hour flight and for the fare I got, this flight was what I needed; I wasn't looking for amenities or comfort so this met exactly my needs."
Cons: "It is necessary to check in 24 hrs before and if you forget there's an extra charge to check in at the airport."

Pros: "Leg room in the front was adequate ."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable ."

Pros: "The flight was speedy, crew did not disturb my sleeping."
Cons: "Luggage and seating upgrade fees. Seemed to nickle and dime you a bit."

Pros: "Great value! Even with a delay in the flight (weather), they kept us updated and informed."
Cons: "Baggage fees, but can understand if the airfare is so inexpensive!"
