Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Bathroom was very smelly"
Pros: "Beautiful plane, great entertainment system, two bathrooms for economy class, decent food"
Pros: "Service was quick"

Pros: "it was easy to navigate ."
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Pros: "Your entertainment system is fabulous!"
Cons: "We purchased a direct flight from Boston to Tampa. We paid extra for the convenience of a direct flight Our flight was changed without notification to a connecting flight that was leaving 10 minutes earlier and arriving 2 hours later. Due to malfunction with the kiosk and not a sufficient amount of agents at check in, we missed our flight by 4 minutes. The gate agent seemed to enjoy telling us, with our 10 month old baby, that we were too late. Our baggage, including car seat, had been loaded on the plane. We were reassigned to a flight the following morning. We missed a full day with family, had to travel back home without a car seat and return to the airport the following day. I was shocked and disappointed that not single Delta agent was accommodating or remotely helpful while we were at the airport. I've never had a problem with Delta before. We travel on regularly and would like to continue using Delta. I would like a voucher for my next Delta trip."
Cons: "On the MSP to ATL leg the gate crew made a huge deal about checking rolling bags. They even stopped us at check-in and nearly begged us to check our bags pointing to the backed up jetway. But we had a lot of unpacking to do before checking our bags so we politely declined three times. On getting to our seats there were at least 8 open slots for bags near us. I heard a crew member call forward to say "tell them no more rollaboards" so they forced everyone left to check. On departure they slammed shut several very large empty overheads. WTF"
Pros: "Free WiFi"
Pros: "It all went very well. Arrived 20 minutes ahead of time. Wifi movies were great. Stewardesses were very efficient."

Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."
Cons: "very few movies to choose from. China southern had dozens"
Pros: "The air staff were very nice and attentive. Menu choices were varied and reasonably priced."
Cons: "The microphones didn't work well and hearing the staff was difficult. I saw several load before their zone was called with nothing said to them. When I paid to upgrade zones that is very annoying. Please quit shrinking the passenger seat size."
Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Not an ideal way to spend the day."

Cons: "Great customer service from all staff. Mannerisms, snacks, and safety precautions."
Pros: "We barely got on the flight."
Cons: "The boarding "red shirt" saved us. We are a band on tour and thanks to her we made the gig"
Pros: "The tv in the back of every seat makes any seat a good seat."
Cons: "No opportunity for seat selection. Seat didn't recline, no blankets available so whatever part I couldn't cover with my jacket was cold from floor up (so no ability to control source), so no sleep, bordering on hypothermia. Seatmate was huge and continuously overflowing into my space (even though he suffered more than i did). Will endeavor NEVER to fly any flight involving Delta again."
Pros: "everything, thank you."
Cons: "I paid for the upgrade to Delta Comfort Plus for an aisle seat & for some reason they reassigned our seats and I got Putin a middle seat. It was not what I paid for and it was very uncomfortable. If people pay to upgrade to specific seats we should. It be reassigned to whatever seat they want to put us in."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled and we had to buy $447 worth of Southwest tickets to get home. Our luggage is still missing, by the way."
Pros: "Delayed by 55 minutes in 10 or 20 minute increments as they waited for a crew."
Pros: "Comfortable-love the 2 seats!"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 30 mins only because one of a flight attendant was late. And this flight attendant attitude throughout the flight was very unpleasant. She never apologize nor smile. I have never seen such a bad attitude flight attendant in my life. I will never take this airline again."
Cons: "Terribly uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "It was a great flight. One of the crew members was extremely funny and made the flight! Everything was on schedule!"
Cons: "Everything was as good as it could get!"
Pros: "Crew was amazing, I love that they had tablets to take the order instead of driving the cart up and down the aisle."
Cons: "Paid fifty dollars for more leg room and it basically felt like basic seats that I’ve flown with such as spirit and American Airlines"
Pros: "Very inexpensive even with buying extra legroom on the way back"
Cons: "Very little legroom in standard seats"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 2 1/2 hours and then we boarded & had to wait another hour. It messed up our plans & took 4 hours away from our quick trip to visit family. We got a $25 voucher but I really doubt we will ever use them."
Pros: "No waiting, good weather and early arrival. Excellent flight. Best of all, low prices!!!"
Pros: "They kept arguing over my luggage payment that I didn't pay online. Finally their manager verified that it's paid."
Cons: "The seats are incredibly thin with nearly no padding and don't recline. No complimentary drinks or snacks. Tray table is too small to be of any use"
Pros: "Airline cannot find my bag, and I have filed baggage lost, I cannot get anyone to respond to me. I have called, and called and called....nothing. How do I get my items returned to me?"
Cons: "I would like to get my belongings returned to me. Can you help me? Mitzi Hinds 8137652619"
Cons: "There is no entertainment, no charger, the crew was rudo, no food and even no water, nothing good in this flight and was expensive"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Small seats, dont recline,no leg room, no free refreshments. You are nickle and dime for everything. When all is said and done I saved no money flying this airline"
Pros: "More snack/food options"
Pros: "Boarding ok. Flight ok."
Cons: "Ran out of water. Is water free or do you have to pay for that too? Also I had a question and I was NOT willing to pay $25 dollars to talk with a rep. Could not answer on line. What a rip."
Pros: "The crew, and boarding was easy. Nice big tray table."
Cons: "My seat didn't recline. No free snacks/drinks. Very small seatback pockets."
Pros: "Friendly crew Fairly clean air craft"
Cons: "Seats don't boot recline There is not even one complementary drink during duration of a flight"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and flight was quiet."
Cons: "I once loved Frontier and used them exclusively. Now, however, their new seats destroy my spine before taxiing from the gate. It is the most uncomfortable airline I have had to use... ever! I feel like their planes are so overpacked that, were there ever an accident, just getting out of my seat would pose a challenge. I willl avoid them at all cost in the future. It is no fun fkying in those seats for 3hrs then trying to enjoy your destination. Never again!!!!!"
Pros: "the crew was very professional, boarding was well organized, the plane was clean, no bad behaved passengers, smooth flight. I was aware of having to pay for carry on and having to pay for snacks. Really don't mind, I carried on better snacks and was looking forward to dinner at my destination."
Cons: "Delayed 7 hours"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and entertaining. They treated passengers like the paying customers that they are. They never made you feel like you were traveling on a budget priced airline."
Cons: "The seats are not very comfortable. The tray table is so small that it is almost useless."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Arrived early to my destination during both flights. New plane, very clean."
Cons: "We seemed to board very early. We started at 4:15 for a 5:00 flight."
Cons: "The flight was initially delayed. The flight landed in Denver at 12:15 at night, which was fine; however, the plane was delayed on the tarmac for 4 hours as the crew was "searching for a gate." I've never felt more stranded in my life especially due to the lack of communication and organization on Frontier's behalf. I find it extremely disrespectful to passengers and would not recommend flying frontier in the future."
Pros: "The flight was delayed as was the flight to Colorado We waited both times for over 30 minutes for our checked luggage Not convenient at all"
Cons: "The male flight attendant was a bit snarky. He seemed to loathe his job, and wasn't very personable."
Cons: "We did not get on the flight it was cancelled, all other airlines seemed to get in and out of Orlando to STL, but not this one. Our only option was to get a refund which comes in 7 to 10 days, and try to find another flight. The next flight fro Orlando to STL was 4 days later. We were able to get another flight on AA but we had to rent a car and then drive 3 hours to a different airport. I would avoid the provider unless you know that there is zero chance of any delays from any part of the country."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Everything else. Most uncomfortable seats ever with the smallest tray tables known to man. Also, absolutely no screens or movies."
Pros: "A bargainprice can be had if you have no luggage. Be prepared to sit up straight on fairly hard seats that don't recline. I cannot complain about spending a week at my daughters, where I already have clothes, for $91."
Cons: "I cannot complain about spending a week at my daughters, where I already have clothes, for $91."
Pros: "Didn't crash"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled due to mechanical problems. Spent 8 hours in the ape port getting rebooked."
Pros: "Staff was friendly I suppose"
Cons: "I've never flown frontier, I was surprised by the charges for every little thing"
Pros: "Thankful that Frontier will refund my "non-refundable" ticket. Certainly it is the decent thing to do, since it was not within my control. Also, they allowed a ticket change when Hurricane Matthew was looming, with no extra charge and without regard to price differences in tickets. I have received an email showing the refund has been given on their end, so now I just wait for it to show up on my credit card."
Pros: "What happened to me was that I was supposed to fly to a wedding in Ft Myers Florida on October 7, 2016 and then Hurricane Matthew hit Florida... I had such anxiety flying alone that I skipped the flight there and obviously the return flight as well... I am so upset with myself and I was hoping to get a partial credit or some type of voucher being that so many flights were cancelled... I would have flown had my flight been the next day or weather conditions better... I am so bummed that I lost the $370 round trip ticket as our son that I never get to see came from California to be in our neighbor boy's wedding... I was so sad I missed my flight due to weather and flight anxiety... :("
Cons: "I was sad that due to weather conditions and flight anxiety I did not feel comfortable flying and was hoping for a partial or some type of credit for a future flight but I doubt that will happen... It was my fear of traveling in awful weather and during Hurricane Matthew that made me not get on the plane... :(. My fears got the best of me and I have never done that before and lost the money for the round trip ticket..."
Cons: "Literally, they double booked my seat mind you I am traveling with an infant and instead of trying to rectify the matter I was shoveled around to different seats because they weren't efficient enough to know how many passengers they had!"
Cons: "I had the very first flight in the morning and when I woke up and checked the time for the flight, it had already been delayed 2 hours. They said I would not make my connection but couldn't work to get me on any other flight that day with another airline. The best they could do was a full refund or a flight the next day (this happened to everyone on our flight). I opted for the full refund ($246) since I needed to be at my destination that day. However, that didn't help much since I bought the ticket months in advance to save money, and subsequently had to buy a ticket with another airline ($700). This was the first and last time I will choose to fly with frontier."
Cons: "Low fare but absolutely everything else cost money, seat, bags, sodas. Total price was not competitive and I felt cheated. Next tume I will do my homework and fly on a different airline."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and don't recline. No complimentary beverage or snack. Late leaving."
Cons: "2 crying babies( that part was just bad luck), the plane was dirty and not well taken care of, the flight attendants were rude, had to pay for beverages. Terrible experience. Will not ever fly this airline ever again!"
Pros: "Direct flight and original time schedule!!!!!"
Cons: "Didn't care for the 3 hour flight delay. Flight was supposedly delayed due to thunderstorms in the east. Was a bit disappointing and frustrating."
Pros: "Great flight crew. Great cost."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and wouldn't be suitable for long flights."
Pros: "Flight duration was shorter than predicted"
Cons: "Seats don't recline They charge for all beverages, even coffee and tea! Nothing is gratis, even the small snacks were for sale The plane was freezing, I was shivering the entire flight."
Cons: "Frontier is awful. The worst, cheapest, crappiest airline in the business. I will never fly them again, and will discourage anyone and everyone I know to do so, as well. Not even a free water or a free carry on. The absolute worst."
Pros: "Aircraft was clean.."
Cons: "Not even water offered!!"
Pros: "The flight attendant was hysterical! We enjoyed her commentary the best! The seats are fairly roomy, actually."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "plane was late departing."
Cons: "Spent over 200.00 on bags for my party of 3. When landing in salt lake city bags did not arrive. Service in baggage claim was horrible .12 hours later they still can not tell us where our bags are. I will never fly this airline again with baggage."
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: "It was 80+ degrees on the flight. Ridiculous, especially with limited leg/shoulder space. Absolutely miserable. Worst flight of my 28 yr old life."
Pros: "free water"
Cons: "the flight was late coming and going by over an hour."
Pros: "Not much to say about the flight...it was a standard coach-class flight. At least they got me my drinks when I wanted them."
Cons: "I felt deceived about the price. Like probably most people, I shopped around for a ticket, and Frontier appeared to have the cheaper price. I was shocked to find i had to pay for a carry-on, and more shocked i had to pay for a seat. So, in total - post-purchase, I had to spend another $150, roughly 46% more than the ticket price I booked. I get it...the state of the airlines, paying for baggage is becoming a thing. but this was just another level, without warning. it was a bait and switch. I won't fly Frontier again."
Cons: "No sandwiches"
Pros: "No delay was okay"
Cons: "There wasnt any power outlet and wifi"
Cons: "50$ baggage fee"
