Pros: "Everything (except the minimal seats)"
Cons: "Cushioned seats"

Cons: "Seemed understaffed at the airport, never anyone around to answer questions about why our plane wasn't even there until 20 minutes after we were supposed to have boarded. They finally showed up, but didn't mention that we'd be delayed (which I eventually found out thanks to a KAYAK alert). Kept telling us the flight would be 62 minutes, but it ended up taking forever. Probably not Allegiant's fault, but they acted like they wanted to hide the fact, rather than own up to it and apologize for the inconvenience as if they valued all of us as passengers."

Pros: "Amazing Crew! Fast flight!"
Cons: "Security"

Pros: "Employees from the gate agent up to and including the flight attendants we are very accommodating and helpful!"

Pros: "The actual flight was comfortable and the crew was good."
Cons: "Flight time was pushed back a few weeks ago. Slow boarding process so we landed about 30 min late."

Pros: "Nothing. It is a cheap airline and it shows. It is the worst airline I have ever flown."
Cons: "The crew was okay but it must be depressing to work for a company where you cannot get a glass of water without paying for it. I had never flown allegiant and was not prepared for paying $50 for my carry on bag."

Pros: "For exception of price there is nothing I liked about"
Cons: "Uncooperative ground crew App doesn't work if you are not from the US"

Cons: "It was to uncomfortable to sit there in the plane for so long. I also noticed one of the flight attendants with the long brunette hair kept over looking me but would be in all the guys faces instead. Pretty sure it was a jelouse thing. The shorter brunette girl was really pleasant"

Pros: "To be honest nothing"
Cons: "Missed flight any no one was willing to help us pure BS"

Cons: "Baggage claim very slow"

Pros: "Pretty empty flight so we were able to change seats. Good thing because my family wasn’t sitting together-$12 to pick or change seats ahead of time. Just be prepared and knowledgeable about this airline and other budget airlines and you will be satisfied. - pay for bags in advance, Try to weigh your checked bags before the airport, Bring snacks or drink on flight - otherwise you have to pay for it. Trenton and punta gorda airports are small, you have to walk to the plane. I love the small airports, no lines , easy parking!"
Cons: "Seats aren’t that comfortable and don’t recline even a bit, tray table is small."

Pros: "Like the small airport quick boarding!"
Cons: "Not lots of leg room, no reclining seats, bummer everything costs extra even water. But ok for price"

Pros: "Wow, what an awesome flight , crew, price, and nice airport. Doing to try this again next time."
Cons: "Took forever to get the bags but hey , it is Christmas !"

Pros: "Keep the free snacks and drinks, NA or soda, I really just miss the legroom (nearly 6’ tall) and cushions, a chair that can ease back a bit. All airlines do this but you are worse than frontier, the major carriers have skimped but not like this."
Cons: "3 hour torture chamber. When she said it was their goal to make us comfortable, but more importantly to keep us safe I snorted laughter. It was a bit better and a lot shorter than the dark passage"

Pros: "It got us there and back for a descent price. The flight was fine but the seats are not comfortable and do not recline. I wouldn't suggest Allegiant for anything more than 2 hours and that was even pushing it."
Cons: "We arrived 3.5 hours early and the line was very long. They must have had a system glitch but didn't communicate to anyone in the line as to what was going on. When it did come time to board, they told everyone in the line that was going to Cincinnati that we couldn't check in until 2 hours before the departure time. Apparently there were some other flights that left before us. If they had told us to keep our place in line and to let other people through, that wouldn't have been a problem. But, they didn't. Their own website says you should check baggage at least 2 hours before your flight and no more than 4 hours before. They took it upon themselves to change the rules on people who arrive early. Then, once they no longer had anyone else to check in, they changed their rules again and start checking in people for Cincinnati about 2.5 hours ahead of time. A little communication and brain power from the staff would have gone a long way. After all that mess, the flight was delayed leaving about 15 minutes without any updates from Allegiant either."

Cons: "They were late boarding maki h us late to arrive in Cincinnati. Had open seating even though we paid for a seat"

Pros: "The staff was nice, kind of, but also unprofessional at time."
Cons: "My flights were both fine but the flight from Fresno to Las Vegas was such a disaster! They switched planes so the majority of the people did not have a seat because the plane did not have any B seats. It would have been nice if ANYONE had made that announcement before we boarded to avoid confusion. Also, the fees are ridiculous! Your app is not user friendly at all! Who the hell charges for a carry on bag?! Are you kidding me?! The directions on the app made it sound like the $17 charge was for an additional carry on item, not the allowed one carry on item. So, when we went to check in and I was told I would have to pay $50 for my mother's carry on, it was livid! Also, are you serious with the $5 fee to print a boarding pass? I will NEVER fly with Allegiant Air again. That is absolutely unacceptable. I will say that the staff was pleasant but the airline is inept and inefficient. The reason I will never fly this airline again because of what a rip off the fees are. Allegiant Air, you should be ashamed of yourself."

Cons: "Sent email out asking for volunteers to reschedule her flight. Got on the plane our seats were not the same as selected. And we paid more to select our seats. Friend of ours seat was switched also and instead of him sitting next to his wife he sat next to a person who did not have an assigned seat he was extremely large and he was hanging off The seat into the aisle I noticed an empty seat and had to ask the stewardess if he could switch seats instead of the stewardess offering on her own. The flight out was delayed approximately one hour various mechanics coming on and off plane until finally we were able to leave."

Pros: "I never have any issues. Everything is always great."

Pros: "Very comfortable; flight crew very professional."
Cons: "Getting off late - but this was due to a storm, so I am happy that the decision was made not to take off on time."

Pros: "Everything they could control went very well."

Cons: "Boarding gates/ area in Denver airport for these small aircraft was almost as bad as a bus station! Crowded and most cramped/ uncomfortable. Denver United staff at customer service center was most unhelpful, unsympathetic and dismissive about the fact that in spite of a flight delay that completely their fault (no weather delay), which made me miss the memorial service for my friend's daughter - my main purpose for visiting Cincinnati - they refused to even give me a patient hearing much less consider my request to try and put me on a different flight!"

Cons: "The plane was so old that it just seemed like it should be retired. My flight was also delayed 45 minutes. They made passengers get off the plane because of a weight restriction it was absurd that my luggage took 40 minutes to come off the plane"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. I was traveling alone with an infant and since the flight wasn't full, the ticketing agent moved seats around and gave me an entire row! It was so nice to have the extra space with all my things and to get up freely when needing to change my sons diaper. There was also a changing table in the bathroom which was much needed."

Cons: "I'm shocked Frontier charges individually and at tiered rates for: Carry on bags Checked bags Seats selection Food Water Just wait, they'll be issuing credits for a bathroom break based on good behavior soon. Shocking practices deserve shocking responses. I'll only use Frontier in a very bad bind."

Pros: "Cheap flight, no frills, quick!"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Too many screaming children."

Cons: "The crew at the check-in gate (before security) was rude to me."

Cons: "A free drink and pretzels after waiting 1.5 hours at gate and on plane would have gone a long way."

Cons: "No free water"

Cons: "I arrived at DAI at 6 am for a 7:35 AM flight today to CVG. The line probably had over 300 ppl in it! The Frontier staff kept telling everyone to get in line. What she should have been asking is where they were going, as not everyone needed to get in that terribly long line! After realizing I didn't need to be in the line, I got out, went to the kiosk (most of which were unused) , got my boarding pass and on I went to TSA. You need more staff, and staff who know how to manage the crowds to make this run more efficiently."

Pros: "After reading a number of the negative responses posted by of other travelers I went back and looked at the initial booking: dates, times, upgrades and fares for our two round trip tickets. I can only explain the difference in our positive experience and their bad ones in that by making my initial choices on those specific dates and times and that by choosing to purchase the upgrade we had a good outcome. It’s the business model, if you use a site like Kayak use the filters. If you choose the lowest price as your default you get what you pay. Actually, about a week prior to our round trip my wife had flown to San Diego one-way and that one-way ticket actually cost her about $3 more on a different carrier than both of our two round trip tickets combined (before the upgrades) on Frontier. Had I been stuck in the back of the plane, in a middle seat, without priority “zone 1” boarding and had I been surprised with having to pay extra for both our checked and carry-on baggage at the counter I would not have been a happy camper either. I guess if you start out the process by only looking for the (best/ lowest?) price, then it comes down to this; what is more painful, paying for the upgrades or the hell of the cattle car."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "the only the is they change our gate and 10 min. till boarding they still didnt tell us , i had to ask!"
Cons: "there wasnt any problems, flight was good! i will continue to fly frontier"

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "We were not able to choose seats when the fight was book a month in advance. Only option was upgrade seats at check in. Flight had 20 seats unused."

Pros: "Very friendly!"

Cons: "Baggage wait."

Pros: "It's pretty difficult to pick out what I liked about the airline, other than the originally "cheap" flight costs – but those increased by $55 by the time I actually took off from the airport."
Cons: "The policies for this airline aren't well known at all, and it's ridiculous they would think I'd be aware that they charge for a carry-on bag, charge to move seats up front the ridiculous back seats they slot you, and there is no wifi! I even had to pay $3 for a small can of Seltzer Water! I will never ever fly this airline again. Also, the seats were incredible uncomfortable and the tray isn't an actual tray you can utilize, so I sat with my computer in my lap (uncomfortably) the entire time. Everything was sticky and smelled bad, from the tray to the seats to the seat belts. Again – never flying Frontier again!"

Pros: "The seats are not comfortable at all."
Cons: "I did not like the seats. So not comfortable. It was very cold where I was sitting. Also did not like paying for my carry on. The plane seemed very old. Did not take turbulence well at all. Noisy, noisy plane."

Pros: "Timing was great! We left early and arrived early."
Cons: "The luggage took close to an an HOUR to come out!! Arriving early benefitted zero!"

Pros: "Late and I'm never flying frontier again"

Cons: "Flight 736 was delayed multi times. From me coming into Cincinnati at 6:58 pm on December 19 to arriving the next morning December 20 at 1:20 am is unacceptable. The two people at the desk were very unfriendly and kept changing their stories. They said that they were waiting on the crew because the plane had landed and we were staring at it since noon. Now I know the hub is in Denver so why wouldn't they have a crew on hand? The pilot was there because he would come in and out of the plane area to the waiting area. So they blamed it on the stewardess. When we finally got to go on board we were not moving. Bags not on board, no fuel, weight not right. It was one thing after another. It was the flight that was unacceptable. My name is Anne"

Cons: "I am never flying Frontier again. Hands down worst airline experience of my life. Flight delayed and moved across the airport several times with little to no communication coming from Frontier employees. 9+ hour line to talk to a customer service rep. Some people in line saying they've been stuck here for 3 days with no refund (not even a hotel) from Frontier. Do yourself a favor. Vote with your dollars. Fly a reputable airline."

Pros: "clean every thing fine"
Cons: "seats a little hard for a 2 hour seating"

Cons: "The total experience leaves me questioning why I would fly Frontier again !!"

Pros: "Great service, clean plane, extremely convenient process. Never had to print a ticket, traveled light and never had additional charges."
Cons: "When purchasing tickets it would be good if they were together regardless of seating preference."

Cons: "I was late because of you. jerks."

Pros: "Crew members were nice"
Cons: "It's very uncomfortable and they charge for everything"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly and flight left on time on Non stop flight from Cincinnati to Denver. Our first time on Frontier and we did not know they charged for drinks or had no food !"
Cons: "Long line to ck baggage at ticket counter 2 hrs before take off. Too much $$ to check bags! Too much $$ for drinks and no snacks! Ended up costing us another $164.00 I miss nit having movies!"

Pros: "Price for the value, on time, friendly service."
Cons: "Temperature too cold, seats too hard, small and cramped and could not recline."

Pros: "Everything I expected from a $177 flight"

Pros: "I thought everything was quite nice...on time, comfortable seats, enough room."
Cons: "The crew on the first flight must have had some issues, because I thought they were not friendly, and lacked smiles. The crew on the return flight were really great!"

Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Delayed flight lost baggage unhelpful employees"

Pros: "Flight was delayed to fix a tire, but still landed on time! Can't complain about keeping the plane in good condition and STILL staying on time! Most fight attendants seemed friendly (mine didn't smile-bad day?). It was a two hour economy trip so I didn't get food and entertainment is not available. No drama or mishaps and environment was comfortable--met all MY expectations!"

Pros: "The boarding was quick. All of the flight attendants were very nice and professional. We also got off the ground quick which I believe got us to our destination quicker."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. No food or drinks without purchase, and no entertainment. I paid over $500 for my ticket, and I feel like I got no more value than when I flew with Alliegant..who is a budget airline, while Frontier is not. Next time I will just opt to pay half the price and fly with Alliegant."

Pros: "smooth flight, nice people"
Cons: "No free tea"

Pros: "Price."
Cons: "Website and customer service"

Cons: "I checked in online, but the website wasn't working, so I decided to check in at the airport. When I got there, the lines were incredibly long and their system was going very slow. None of the kiosks worked, and all the employees were not helpful at all. I ended up missing my flight, because they were all so INCREDIBLY slow... definitely too bad, but hoping they can learn a few things and get a little better service at some point. I guess it's a little hard to pick between good service and good prices..."

Pros: "Cheap, didn't die. That was the only redeeming qualities of this flight."
Cons: "Pretty much everything else. They lost my checked bag (checked is cheaper than carry on for some reason). The seats weren't padded enough, didn't recline and window seats didn't have enough headspace. The attendants didn't tell us that cups of H2O we complimentary until we were on our flight back."

Pros: "That I was allowed to move over and not be squished"
Cons: "How long it took for the idiots on the plane to just sit down and buckle up so we could pull forward to the gate"

Pros: "I liked the initial price of the flight. But it only goes downhill from there."
Cons: "You have to pay for your seat, anywhere from $6-36, no complimentary drinks or snacks on a 2.5 hour flight, very little legroom on a fairly large plane, a 9:15am flight took off at 10:30am... all in all a bad experience. The crew was friendly and boarding was easy, but a $35 checked bag, and a $35 carry on bag fee made this flight cost significantly more tha from competative airlines. Very disappointed and I don't think I'll be flying Frontier again."

Pros: "Arriving Home."
Cons: "Waiting."

Pros: "That they had flight during time I wanted"
Cons: "Jet bridge delayed getting off plane; incessant selling of credit card"

Pros: "Crew was good, flight on time"
Cons: "Frontier and spirit use the same Airbus aiprlane with the worst seats in the industry. My back hurt before the airplane was pushed back from the gate."

Pros: "Price and location were right"
Cons: "Some learning curve info. The Frontier policy on personal items didn't include backpack. If its small enough to fit under the seat you don't have to pay to carry it on. Now that I know that I won't incur a $30-$40 fee."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and nice. The plane's temperature was comfortable and I enjoyed the food I purchased. Boarding and unloading took a while, but things were done orderly. Receipt of luggage was much faster in Cincinnati then in Denver."
Cons: "The seats are small with little legroom, especially if you have a personal item under the seat in front of you. I'm not particularly tall, but seating was uncomfortable as I could not move my legs much. I also wished they would do boarding from the back of the plane to the front. I purchased a seat in the back, but was not able to board until the third group, causing me to have to inconvenience the people in my row in order to take my seat."

Cons: "No reading material, no snack, no nothing."

Pros: "See above."
Cons: "See above."

Pros: "The crew was great! One of the best I've ever had -they had to be to make up for all the other irritations of flying Frontier."
Cons: "At no time when I was pricing out best price flights did Frontier let me know that my bags, my seat and my soft drink would cost extra. Seats were barely padded and mine at least did not recline. It took over 45 minutes for baggage to arrive at the claim area which was maddening since I would have preferred to do what I've done on just about every flight for years - carry on my bag at no cost. Because the cost was just as expensive to carry on and the flight was clearly full (since I did not learn until just days before boarding that I had to purchase a seat), I was concerned about my bag being somewhere else on the plane AFTER I paid to have it with me. In the future, I will stick with higher quality airlines in which I know what the cost is up front and I get a soda without pulling out a credit card."
