Pros: "fair"
Cons: "nothing at this time"

Pros: "The crew was organized and professional."
Cons: "Better meal options but I believe it was limited because the flight was so short."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Awful treatment of passengers."
Pros: "The inflight crew was absolutely incredible. They were funny and helpful especially as our situation was incredibly bad."
Cons: "After waiting almost an extra hour plus for a delay, the boarding process was complete chaos. Not to the fault of the crew at LaGuardia, but just based on the annoyance and impatience of the passengers waiting to board. Once on the plane, our row was the only one with broken TVs. Unfortunately for my husband and myself, we were flying with two toddlers with whom we had solely expected to entertain with the TV."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Leg room and tv"
Cons: "Increased cost of luggage, snacks , and perhaps a little more info about the flight delay"
Pros: "Staff was very nice"
Cons: "Our flight said on time until five minutes before we were suppose to take off, when they made an announcement we would be two hours delayed and the screen hadn’t updated When we finally got in the seats were broken - some did not recline and the tv controls were busted and TVs did not turn off. Very uncomfortable seats, hot air little ac, very poor experience with Jet Blue."
Pros: "Great service. Also loved the size of the seats and the leg room that I had."
Pros: "On time flight, roomier seat"
Cons: "Airport, IGA"
Pros: "Great flight with early departure; not crowded"
Cons: "Longer flight than normal due to Florence"
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Delayed flight plus tv didn’t work"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful. This was my first flight on JetBlue and I was impressed with the selection of snacks and drinks."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "1. Forced to check carry on because of a pocket in the front when other passengers were allowed to bring actual suitcases which were taken right before boarding. Apparently JetBlue has a quota to meet as to how many people they charge for carry on luggage. 2. Refused to allow me to request my seat ahead of time to try and charge a $50 fee for an upgraded seat, even though by purchasing a ticket, I am guaranteed a seat on the plane. 3. Late once again. So far every flight taken by JetBlue this year has been late. My only on time flight this year has been with Delta. I do believe they are the new Spirit Airlines in disguise. This airline has been moved to the bottom of my list. I may take them once more but it depends on how many points I have with them, if it's enough to cover a free trip. If it doesn't, I will forfeit as the aggravation and nasty behaviour at the check in counter especially at LaGuardia is too much to take. They are also every discriminatory at that airport also, especially the people who work at JetBlue. I have to take responsibility for keep trying. It the same as beating a dead horse and expecting it to get up and run."
Cons: "The airline had the flight delayed due to waiting for flight attendants. Very irresponsible of the crew and members, which weren’t working on the flight"
Cons: "Flight was already delayed and then we sat on the airplane for approximately 45 minutes before take off."

Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Lots of leg room! Flew with Delta on the way up. My 6'5" son and I (5/10") were extremely cramped on the Delta flight, having to sit side ways in the seat for almost 3 hours. Won't do that again. Jet Blue had plenty of room to spare - over 5" to seat in front of us! No comparison!! Thanks, Jet Blue."
Cons: "Lots of hassles at NY airport. Staff did not agree with each other as to what should or should not be scanned...confusing to say the least."

The flight was suppose to leave 9:00pm.. we didn't leave til 9:40.. The safety announcement was awful. We cudnt hear most of it.. The turbulence was scary and the noise made me put on headphones to sleep. Once it landed in Orlando the airplane traveled around the entire airport .. It took forever to get off the plane but I was so happy to get off"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled with no explanation why"
Cons: "The crew was overly aggressive with mask policy enforcement. They patrolled the aisles and routine pointed at passengers directing them in a hostile manner to keep their masks on their faces, even when they were trying to eat or drink. They also threatened customers by stating it was a federal law several times. It was very uncomfortable to say the least. I will not fly delta again by choice."

Pros: "short"
Cons: "ok"
Pros: "There was a threat in the airport which caused the closure of one terminal. It happened to be the one from which this flight was due to depart.

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "uneventful"

Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The leg room and freedom of not having another seat in front of me throughout this flight was great. It made getting comfortable a lot easier."

Pros: "Good seat, easy on and off, everything went a little ahead of schedule and smooth"
Pros: "I was able to pick my own flight online easily."

Pros: "Great plane"
Pros: "Staff were courteous. Captain explained reason for delay."
Cons: "Over 20 minute delay to begin boarding with no explanation. Boarding process very slow due to excess carry ones needing to be checked."
Pros: "Upgrading to First Class made it worthwhile."
Cons: "As a minority provider of service at BWI, the gate was the furthest from the entry. Gate security is almost always a source of delay here."
Pros: "After the extremely long wait to check bags which made us miss the flight, the date crew got us in another wasn't direct which is what I paid for, but they did get us out, but i missed an interview because of the lack of crew and a missing luggage."
Cons: "Checking a bag, delta did not have enough crew to get everyone thru to their flights. We waited for 80 minutes inline to check a bag. Then we ran to the gate inky to find the gate was closed less than 2 minutes before we arrived. At least 20 others also missed the plane because of the lack of crew and long lines checking bags. It was frustrating, irritating, uncaring crew checking in, and a bit rude. Then on of my checked luggage was lost enroute - which made getting off the flights even later which made me miss a meeting that I was scheduled to be at. All because you didn't have the crew needed to check in."
Pros: "I haven't traveled by air for a number of years, it had gotten to be so crazy at checkin. Well imagine my surprise when I was checked in within five minutes of arriving at the airport. KAYAK took care of everything. All the flights were on time, I received email updates along the way and I am so happy I'm planning my next trip already."

Cons: "Snack selection"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours. They didn't tell us it was delayed until 2 hours before the flight, by which time we were already at the airport.

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They canceled my flight. And they keep us at the airport until 10pm to tell us that flight got canceled. The worst part was they offer us to we buy with with “discount” embarrassing. They could tell me at 6pm that flight is canceled and to find other way to get to nyc."
Cons: "There is always a plane waiting at the gate in Miami if one arrives early. Not really American’s fault. Miami International Airport is the one that needs to be more flexible."
Cons: "Wi-Fi was spotty."

Cons: "Our audio did not work for movies. The food was super cheap"
Pros: "We did eventually reach our destination safe and sound"
Cons: "In flight service on AA was very disappointing. This was a cross-country flight of 5 hours at the dinner hour. The plane was full [ as usual these days ] seat space was tight [ as usual these days ], but cabin service was practically invisible. The two stewards made one pass with the beverage cart, and that was it for the duration!! On a five hour flight!! When I went back for a beverage, the stewards were chatting at the rear compartment. This was the poorest American Airlines service that I have experienced in fifty years. I will avoid them in the future. Don"
Pros: "The person at the luggage area, she gave me the ticket, very nice and polite the only professional person."
Cons: "Didn't let me take my hand luggage, small that complies with the size and told me only at gate, I said I had things that could brake and showed no concern and they would send it to my final distinction instead giving it to me in the end of first flight...I've been traveling around the world and the disrespect for customers and poor service of most of US carrier is amazing... some African companies are much better. on the second flight, almost two hours delay, the plane from philly to Lisbon, old, just s few tv screens, exactly like the North Korean airways..., bad food, my tray stayed with me the whole fly, flight attendant not very professional with no concern for customers and job."

Pros: "boarding process was easy and fluent"
Cons: "no dislikes"
Pros: "For the basic economy seat there was plenty of room and the staff was excellent. Honestly the best domestic flight I've taken in a long time."
Cons: "United sucked on this leg. Flight never should have left Chicago. We were diverted to Oklahoma City, where United abandoned us. System was unresponsive and noone could override the system. Folks at the counter could not cancel the diverted flight, so United was not able to rebook us on other flights. This was at midnight to 2:00 am. I stayed at the airport to catch a 5:00 am flight to Houston, then to Omaha, then had to rent a car to get the rest of the way. United lied to us about what was happening to us several times. Then abandoned us when the pilots timed out."

Cons: "Seats are still pretty small and tight!"
Cons: "Two hour delay for start of engines.. Not enough chichen and pasta was not good"

Pros: "The announcer for the boarding of the flight was easy to understand for once"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, first flight was delayed then canceled. The only other flight was 5 hours later and boarded late and left late. It was a tight fit, staff was unconcerned. Flight was the most turbulent flight I have been on and I have flown 3 times every year since I was a kid. Food choices were awful. AC was broken. There was no wifi, tv or any choices for entertainment. Seats left me with back pain and neck pain."
Pros: "Seat was roomier than I expected for economy class. United did arrange for hotel, shuttle and food vouchers for those of us who missed our connections. The hotel (Biltmore in Santa Clara) was very nice. The plane crew did their best to help passengers with connections to catch, especially those with international ones."
Cons: "Delay at boarding: long LONG motionless line with no explanation to this large crowd of passengers led to delay in departure. Many missed connections, including mine. Later on, learned that some mechanical problem was the cause, so delay understandable, but someone should have made an announcement to the waiting passengers. Due to conventions in SF, we were told, we had to be put up in Santa Clara, down in Silicon Valley, an hour away. Expecting major morning traffic jams, we asked for a 5 am shuttle (plane leaving at 8, plus having to go thru security again). Since it took 2 hours from landing in SF at 10:30 pm to getting to the hotel, there was little time for sleep and no food available at the hotel at those hours. The shuttle drivers seemed confused, relying on GPS to guide them and speaking little English."
Pros: "Glad you didn't give priority to those with other designations like priority plus etc"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane was too small"
Pros: "That the seats weren't made of plastic like all of your other planes on my round trip."
Cons: "The plane lost my $800 snowboard and sent it to denver instead of Birmingham the kiosk service person has one job it's not that hard to stick on "Birmingham" on the label. I think I deserve a refund for this flight."
Cons: "Our departure from O'Hare was delayed for over an hour because we were waiting on a truck to come and spray the aircraft with de-icing fluid. Ordinarily I would be understanding in this, but speaking as a military pilot, a simple walk around of the plane would have shown no ice or snow accumulation on any surfaces, and precipitation had steady stopped. It was sunny as they finally sprayed the empenage down. Compounding our frustration was a lack of communication from the flight crew. We were already boarded and delayed over 30 minutes before they announced the reason for the delay. There was no update as to our position in the queue of planes waiting for de-ice. And when the truck finally did show up, it sat next to the aircraft for close to 10 minutes before it finally began the process of de-icing our iceless aircraft. Very frustrating."
Pros: "crew was nice but minimal"
Cons: "frontier charges for a carry on, small pack pack included. No entertainment or wifi offered. Plane was very very warm on cabin and they didn’t offer any beverages."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and gave clear instructions."
Cons: "I miss the cookies."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Social distancing guidelines should be applied on plane. Rather than leave 20+ seats empty, and cram everyone 6 to a row. Flight was over 2 hours delayed due to not having maintenance staff available. And then I was crammed in next to an oversized individual where we couldn’t even keep the armrest down."
Cons: "Flight was more than an hour delayed"
Pros: "The legroom we paid for."
Cons: "This time the attendant still wouldn’t let anyone in rows 2 & 3 place the carry on they had paid extra for in the overhead bins, but she didn’t make me put it under the seat in front of me (this losing the extra leg room we paid for), so I put it in a bin behind me. The plane was late, but the pilot made up most of the time, but then it took 55 minutes to get our luggage."
Pros: "it Got us to our destination"
Cons: "The seats are cheap and uncomfortable. The tray table is so small my drink did not fit on it."
Pros: "The crew was great. In a good mood and accommodated my requests. (For complimentary water and a trading card to remember my trip)"
Cons: "Seat was awfully uncomfortable. I’m only a slim built 5’9” woman and my knees were indenting the next seatback. And the aisle was too busy for me but that could have been fixed with paying for a window. I do not recommend flying in these economy seats for any longer than 2.5 hours."
Pros: "Everything was excellent. One of the best flying experiences that we've had as a family.we flew in with AA and the difference was clearly evident. Excellent flight crew and customer service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "More space and someone had gas the entire flight it was awful."
Pros: "It was a red eye... crew only came around when needed to"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "Food options on the airplane."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Extremely high charge for carry-on baggage, extremely high charge for changing flight times, no beverage service, seats are very small with no iPhone charger available."
Pros: "I was able to travel 600 miles in 1 and half hrs"
Cons: "The slow unorganized boarding and deboarding, The attendants kept remining us that the seatbelt sign was on the whole flight, but people need to use the facilities, Flight attendants were very cold. They “did there job”."
Pros: "The crew was super nice, that’s about it."
Cons: "Boarding process, accommodations, uncomfortable seats and very little space. I had a family emergency and this was the only flight I could catch. Will avoid this airliner in the future."
Pros: "Awesome pilot and timely, polite service."
Cons: "Paying for baggage"
Pros: "Flight landed early"
Cons: "Stewardess didn't even offer complimentary water; seats on both flights did not recline: had to pay extra for a reclining seat. I will never fly Frontier Airlines again. This business borders on dishonest. I would rate a 0 if I could on this review."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The total cost of the flight is just a fraction of what you’ll pay. The nickel and dime you for everything. $38 for a carrying on, same for a checked bag. It was a quick trip and thought a back pack would be okay to carry on.... nope that’s $38, if you pay ahead of time. They charge more at the gate. When you check in they try to get you to pay anywhere from $9 to $21 to pick a seat. Seats don’t recline either. Flight was also late. You’re better off paying the full fare on another flight than flying Frontier. Never again."
Cons: "You pay a price for an airline trip somewhere and then you have to pay again to get a seat on the plane. hard tiny seats, anything you want is extra money."
Cons: "Flight was oversold. Agents refused to discuss my options. Supervisor insisted I had been given a piece of paper telling me my rights. Called airport police when I got angry at the treatment and complained. I made the flight but my last on this poorly run airline."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 hrs while other flights to Denver kept taking off"
Pros: "Clean planes"
Cons: "I wish that I'd seen the review regarding carry on baggage fees. Given that I had to pay for my baggage each way and to reserve a seat (to avoid being in a middle seat), I'm not sure that Frontier ended up being the most economical choice. When you consider that Frontier's seats don't recline and the only complimentary refreshment offered on a even a four hour flight is water, I would've preferred to pay a few more bucks with a more conventional airline."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Over 5 hour delay- it big time messed up our plans for the day :("
Cons: "The bag fees are ridiculously high, seats are super small and I'm only 5'2". Crew was pulling people on and off the flight when leaving Phoenix. Early check in online is not mobile friendly. With bag fees and seat upgrade I spent an additional $87....never again."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Clean, newer plane. On time. Staff was knowledgeable. On time, even with a brief delay to fix a seat."
Cons: "No food, just water. No entertainment."
Pros: "Three hour flight delay. At least I had the comfortable stretch seating."
Cons: "Canceled flight and no flights till Friday [4 days away]. Frontier incompetence."
Cons: "seat comfort is non existent, no reclining, tray tables are a joke and it feels like riding on a city bus. No food or drink, except water is free. Soda can is $2.99 each."
Cons: "The gate crew was completely rude and would not help. Flight was delayed, nobody said anything, we were all waiting around. Never again will I fly with this airline. They are a joke."
Pros: "Crew was kind"
Cons: "This is the most uncomfortable seats that one can possibly imagine."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze. Crew was really nice and not uptight."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable. Sitting down in plywood would be more comfortable than these seats :(."
Cons: "Two hour delays on both flights"
Pros: "Nothing did not take flight. Will not pay for flight"
Cons: "Site automatically booked me on a return flight at a day & time I did not want. I was unable to stop the transaction. The airline would not credit the flight. So I chose another carrier & different flight. Called my credit company and have Declined the charge"
Pros: "Nothing, they were a rip off from the start!!!"
Cons: "Price gouging, dishonesty in advertising regarding fares and carry-on charges, using the excuse that they are a "boutique" airline to justify gouging customers for everything imaginable!! Poor seating, Mickey Mouse drink/snack trays, you name it - they will find ways to cheapen it and charge for it in usurious ways!!! Our family and employees will never grace the threshold of their airline again!!"
Cons: "Pay for snacks and drinks Delay in flight"
Pros: "It was comfortable and fast. From now on I would rather fly than drive."
Cons: "When we were in the air, the plane faced some problems and we had to turn back to origin terminal. Then we had to wait 3 hours so they can tell us they replace it with another plane. After that they were missing one crew member and we had to wait another one hour for her to arrive."
Cons: "Boarded then had to deplane due to mechanical issue on return flight. Passangers with carry-on bags large enough that should have been checked. At least two dogs in cabin."
Pros: "Flight left on time and great customer service ."
Pros: "On board attendants were pleasant and friendly. The arrival and departure were timely. On this trip my seat mates were thin enough that they fit within their seats as compared to another Frontier flight I took where my seat mates were a husband and wife who I estimate both weighed over 300 pounds. Even though they did not use the arm rest between the two of them, their combined weight/hel bulged over and under the arm rest next to me so I had at most 2/3 of the already small and cramped seat for myself."
Cons: "I think it is basically deceptive to advertise comparatively low prices then charge between $10 to $70 to obtain round trip seat assignments, $60-80 to carry one bag round trip, and $2.99 for a soda. I don't like the fact that even if you have a boarding pass that it is necessary to go through the entire line with folks who may or may not have a boarding pass to check a bag. If I had known this I would have paid the extra amount for a carry on bag. The non reclining skinny seat style and limited knee room/leg room is tolerable for a 2 or 3 hour flight but I can't imagine taking a much longer Frontier flight."
Pros: "Crew was raised to be friendly"
Cons: "Small hard non reclining seats, no refreshments or beverage service , charges for carry-ons"
Pros: "I was surprised at the great price, the lack of issues, and the smoothest landings ever! Will definitely book Frontier flights again. Thanks!"
Cons: "Where to start? Our first flight was delayed by over two hours with no explanation. Our connecting flight was also significantly delayed. Once we arrived at our destination, we realized our bags had not. All three pieces of our checked luggage are missing. We're on a beach vacation nearly four hours from the airport with no swimsuits, towels, toothbrushes. Thanks for nothing, Frontier!"
Pros: "I liked the price and the assigned seats."
Cons: "I did not like the service, the seats / armrests, the overhead bins (way too high for a super short human like myself), and worst of all I hated the check in process. Where is my mobile boarding pass? I don't know. I will never know. Because once I checked in, I couldn't find it! Not great at all."
Pros: "Terrible Service, charching For every single bag, i Will never use them not even For free"
Pros: "The pilot did us all a favor and circumvented some nasty thunderstorms."
Cons: "78° interior temp is much too warm"
Cons: "Everything was great, but learning upon check-in that I would need to pay $40 to get my luggage home put a damper on everything. I sat next to a family that was going on vacation and had just spent their spending money to get their luggage on the flight. I felt so bad for them! I was traveling on business, so I'm hoping I will be able to get my organization to pay, but might get stuck with that charge on my own dime since there were options that would have been cheaper. I realize now that I'd heard somewhere this is the way Frontier works, but it definitely needs to be made very clear what all the costs are when customers are making the purchase. Though I have this information for future,this experience left such a bad taste in my mouth I will go out of my way to avoid traveling Frontier in the future."
Cons: "There is a lot to complain about with this airline. I cannot comment on the comfort, food not entertainment because I missed my flight. Granted the flight missing was not the fault of the airline however I would have imagined that the staff would have told me in no way would I make my flight with the security lines the way they were. Once we made it through we ran the entire length of the airport to try and make the flight in hopes that they might delay the plane. That's is not the whole complaint because it happens. However; my bags flew with the flight I missed. The ticket agent assured us the bags would get to the destination and I could pick them once I arrived on the later flight (through a different airline). When I arrived NO employees where to be found. The "helpline" not helpful not even to tell me if the bags were there and lock and I could get them in the morning. Instead I was talk to condescending and rude, thanks to Kim in Colorado. I stayed the night over since my home is 3 hours from the airport. Next morning at 8:30 I call to speak to someone, helpline again unhelpful. Could not tell me when someone would be there or anything about my bags. I show up the airport. No staff. I waited for an hour and half for a ticket agent. Once I posted on their social media page that I was unhappy that person told me when they would be there and their hours. NOT THE HELPLINE but I already stood around picked up my bags and was out of there. I will never fly this airline. They nickel and dime you and have terrible customer service."
Pros: "Price but with the add-ons that wasn't even very good."
Cons: "Frontier scheduling two flights within fifteen minutes of the other. Only two workers at the ticket counter.....neither with anything resembling a sense of urgency. Bigger issue is your baggage takes much longer to check in people with checked baggage, if carry-ons were cheaper many would not check baggage, making the process much more efficient."
Pros: "Flight was early which was a delight. Friendly crew. Only free water. Plane was clean. No first class."
Cons: "Was not made aware that there was a charge for ANY baggage. Very unsettling at the gate, and felt I had been hijacked into paying that fee. Makes for very bad public relations."
