Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "the baby next to me"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for several hours due to a severe thunderstorm from MSP to JFK. The airline crew failed to update all passengers so most of us were just aimlessly pacing around the gate. The team was very disengaging, not sincere, and not professional. This was definitely a -1 customer experience as many customers complained, missed connecting flights, or like myself - had to call my office at an ungodly hour and explain that i’d be missing work"
Pros: "The plane wasn’t full so there was room to stretch out."
Cons: "The plane was 2 hours late in taking off - no problem for me but I’m sure there were others who may have missed connections or had relatives/friends inconvenienced by this delay."
Pros: "Quick check in, good boarding, great staff."
Cons: "My flight was canceled for unknown reasons."
Cons: "No snacks"
Pros: "The staff was friendly.... but other than that, it was a terrible experience and I will never, ever fly with them every again. Actually, a group of thirty or so of us are filing a civil law suite for how we were treated."
Cons: "We were left at Waco Regional Airport at 1AM and transporation was not arranged util nearly 430 in the morning. There was no sun country staff to assist with travel arrangements. We were abandoned at a closed airport for hours. Eventually, I got the one and only uber still running in waco to drive me at 330am from waco to dallas. There has been no reinbursement of fares or compensation for lost wages, time and the general annoyance that being awake all night long caused. If you would like to know more information, please feel free to contact me via phone 972-765-0570"

Cons: "Which there was more flights to Boston vice versa"
Pros: "I was very impressed with all aspects of my trip."
Cons: "small seats and when we go into the air there were plenty of seats to spread out. The crew should have announced that it would okay to disberse."
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Flight was better then expected."
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "My Trip was good"
Cons: "I have never been so cold on a flight. I thought I was going to loose feeling in my feet. I had to put on socks and stuff my feet in my carry on under the seat in front of me. I had to warm up my shoes between my legs before putting them on to disembark."
Pros: "Awesome prices. T,he gate crew was informative and helpful with the flight status and early check in procedures. Good food choices and variety, and prices weren't terribly out of line"
Cons: "Flight crew didn't give many updates for sights or geography, if at all. Seats are probably the smallest i've seen, the the middle seats don't recline at all which is uncomfortable."
Pros: "My daughter arrived with an injured shoulder and a Sun Country employee helped her with her 4 hockey bags and checked her in. Not often a teenager notices great customer service, but she called me and was so thankful for a nice person working in Minneapolis."
Cons: "It was freezing!"
Pros: "Whole process was easy - boarding etc Also changed our seats on request! :-)"
Cons: "Plane small - not much room. Would have liked a snack"
Pros: "Everything was expeditious, staff was courteous and the flight went smooth. Thanks Sun Country Air!"
Pros: "We boarded the plane on time and got to our destination on time."
Cons: "There was no free wifi"
Pros: "Prompt, friendly!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable. Had an aisle seat."
Pros: "I had an issue checking in online and was asked to go to the ticket counter at the airport. Luckily there wasn't a line when I arrived. Because I couldn't select my seat online, they put me in the window seat in the exit row for free. Boarding was smooth. Took off on time. Staff was incredibly pleasant. Landed early. I've had nothing but 10/10 experiences with Sun Country!"
Pros: "I like being able to upgrade for a reasonable amount. It allows you a free bag, early boarding and first class seat and a meal."
Cons: "The web site was almost unusable. Could not update personal info, or enter TSA number, or upgrade on it. Had to wait on phone for 30 minutes in order to do all that with a real person."
Pros: "The Rooom!!"
Cons: "Food Coices. It would be nice to have some Ketogenic options. Nuts, meat and cheese without the breads."
Pros: "Very smooth flight!"
Cons: "The flight crew seems rushed and totally missed the waves and verbal cues from the lady sitting next to me. They seemed rushed and I felt bad that this lady was overlooked every time they came through to check with us for drinks, snacks, and trash collection."
Pros: "The cost of the flight"
Cons: "Just your average/normal flight. You get from A to B simply"
Pros: "Good pricing on a newer aircraft with fairly good seating choices. This was only my first part of my roundtrip and overall not a bad experience, just some minor inconveniences."
Cons: "Seemed to be quite a few delays and changes, but that maybe was the holiday season. Everything is priced except water, I would have chosen Delta or Southwest if I had known that a pillow costs $5 and no free crackers or condiment snacks. My advice to take here would be... grab your drink+snacks BEFORE you leave the terminal and keep it in your bag, as well as anything to help sleep with. Several of the Flight Attendants seemed like they were "working their job" but were not happy about it, and their manners seemed to reflect this. I will probably give a followup after my return flight."
Cons: "Please see above."
Pros: "Very accommodating Wonderful staff Comfortable seating (exit row) Funny: Willy Wonka on the exit row instructions!"
Pros: "Would consider this airline for next travel"
Pros: "This was my first time flying on SunCountry. My departure from JFK was a nightmare . You could not preprint your boarding pass and no Kiosk at the terminal. The line to get your boarding pass was long and slow. It took so long many passengers had to be escorted to the wheelchair TSA security check point in order to still make the flight . I still wouldn't have made the flight if some very kinds people didn't allow me and 10 other SunCountry passengers to cut in front of them SunCountry does not have TVs but rather rents out for eight dollars portable entertainment systems. It was great to kill time for my flt to Minneapolis . However when I wanted to rent one on the return flight, I was told that they had given them all to the first class passengers. Knowing they don't stock enough for us common folk I would have brought a magazine or book to read. It was the longest most boring, arduous flight I have taken. I guess I'm accustomed to all the amenities and conveniences of JetBlue"
Cons: "I am 5'6" 130lbs and feel like a Great Ape trying to squeeze myself into the seats and walking down the aisles. And when the person in the row in front of me puts their seat back I have my tray smashed into my rib cage. Also, the airlines, not just Suncountry MUST do something about this carry on policy! With everyone trying to believe they can stuff their "carry on" into the overheads is causing delays and headaches for those of us who realize it's best for all to check one's bags."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, pleasant flight"
Pros: "We haven't travelled Sun Country in a long time. Everyone from the gate agents to the flight crew did their jobs right and with a smile. No food or entertainment but we didn't expect that."
Pros: "Overall a good experience, with helpful crew members and a smooth boarding process. I have priformis syndrome so I can't sit for too long, and I got up to stretch half way through the flight and didn't encounter any problems so that was good. I didn't purchase food or entertainment on the flight."
Cons: "My seat wasn't very comfortable and I realized only at the end that the cushion was somehow pulled forward."
Pros: "Both my checked bag and I arrived in Seattle as expected. Given the price point for holiday travel the seats were certainly uncomfortable but decent."
Cons: "Crew was rude. I fell asleep and didn't realize my seat was tilted back at all. Instead of nicely asking, or saying please, or the way I've always been addressed at any other airline the flight attendant grabbed the seat near my head, jerked it up, and said "you need to be upright for landing". Similarly when a young woman got up to use the restroom instead of saying please or politely directing her back to her seat the same flight attendant said "you need to be in your seat right now." The orange juice also tasted weird. The captain never introduced himself, never said how long the flight would be, or any of the standard stuff when taking off either. Just the spiel at the end as we were preparing to land. Also very surprised that there are no free snacks and no free entertainment for travel across the country."
Pros: "Good price. Terminal 2 at MSP is convenient"
Cons: "Middle seat very squishy"
Pros: "I have a hearing impairment so I can't always hear announcements, when I told this to the woman at the gate, she told me I could board early to avoid missing my correct boarding time. I REALLY appreciated this. The crew on board the plane was also super polite and helpful."
Cons: "The seats on the plan got uncomfortable really quickly. Stretching your legs out under the seat in front of you offers a small relief, but not much."
Pros: "All good - no negatives. Professional."
Pros: "Clean and comfortable plane. I'll be flying you again."
Pros: "Personell at Bagage drop was nice"
Cons: "First the time between connection flights was very short. Then after just making the. Innextion sat for almost 2 hours on board . Missed introductory lunch for my new summer job at my college -"
Pros: "Online boarding passes a great idea"
Cons: "Don't like to pay extra to reserve seats. Seating is overcrowded - poor leg room."

Pros: "Aircraft was cool"
Cons: "Small children"
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Decent communication during delay of previous flight (delay of 4+ hours), friendly and helpful crew on the delayed flight."
Cons: "Dirty plane. I had to clean my own seat with a wet wipe and some paper towels. Previous AA flight delayed by 4+ hours causing a missed connection."
Pros: "this flight only takes an hour so really nothing is an issue. again, there was plenty of overhead storage so nothing ended up under the seat."
Pros: "Prompt boarding"
Cons: "I could never sync in the entertainment app and wifi"
Pros: "the plane was very new and in excellent condition"
Pros: "Comfort level on the plane was beyond my expectations. Seats, noise level, and elbow room excellent. I will definitely take another flight with American."
Pros: "Nothing special, but no problems. I did pay for the fruit and cheese plate, which I think is a good deal for the price. Brie is better than you'd expect on a plane! Totally recommend it."
Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "Had to wait for pilot coming from Mexico flight for 20 mins after everyone boarded"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Flight crew was kind and curtious."
Cons: "Kayak repeatedly listed the departure gate as D36 when it was D17."
Cons: "tvs weren't working correctly during the entire flight"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay going, 3.5 hour delay returning. All because their paperwork had not been submitted on time. Terrible organization."
Cons: "Boarding-we boarded class 9 and had a carry on that was to big so all 3 personnel yelled at me and my husband with my daughter in my arms very loud and disrespectfully " YOU CAN NOT BRING THESE TYPE OF BAGS ON THE PLANE!" Mind you 3 people are saying this while other people were also waiting to board the plane! So I quickly say we do not need 3 people to tell us 1 thing and especially yelling at us like we were kids or criminals because it felt like we must have broke the law the way they treated us! That experience was horrible and ruined my liking for AA"
Cons: "The long delay was terrible"
Pros: "I like quick flight,"
Cons: "The delay but hey that's how it goes."
Pros: "Great flight. Nice airplanes and friendly hostesses."
Pros: "Boarding was very quick, they called the groups quickly with no lag time in between."
Cons: "I think this was the most cramped airplane I have been on. It was so uncomfortable and I would think that they would take this into consideration since it was a red eye flight."
Pros: "The meals were pretty decent and I loved that I was given chocolates during the flight."
Pros: "I got there safe and there was some entertainment"
Cons: "seats small and not real comfortable."
Cons: "Mechanical difficulties in Dallas caused us to leaveat least 1.5 hours late. Got to Phoenix after my scheduled and all other flights to Spokane had departed. AA put me up in a hotel at the airport. Had to wait 35 minutes outside for a shuttle in 102 heat at 9:00 in the evening. Had to ask for a voucher for evening meal."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Always seems to have a delay connecting through DFW, caused me an extra day of parking fee for coming back late."
Cons: "Would not check bags through to final destination. I had to puck up at baggage claim and clear customs, and recheck bags through a 2 hour + line at ticket counter."
Cons: "Super old planes, couldn't control a/c or had a tv."
Pros: "Our plane was grounded before take-off because of a mechanical issue, and the airline did a good job of informing us of the status of the repairs and eventual aircraft replacement. They offered us sandwiches, snacks and drinks for during our long delay."
Pros: "Flight staff was friendly."
Cons: "Complainers. Shame on the parents who raised such pretentious a--holes."
Cons: "Lots of turbulence."
Cons: "There is no legroom in coach. I am six foot seven and my knees cram against the seat in front of me to the point my legs go numb."
Pros: "Flight was prompt. Crew was good."
Cons: "Not seated together with my wife. Looked at paying for upgrade, but no seats together."
Pros: "I got these flights for dj jobs I had under a us p2 visa. My original flight to dallas was delayed from 12:56 to 8pm which would of landed me in dallas at 2:21am but the club Fat Rabbit closes at 2am Which in fact was a 1300 (US dollar) loss. I re booked my ticket to Austin from Vancouver this morning because the only reason to go dallas was my job. Was supposed to fly in have dinner play music get back on the plane n go Austin but going to dallas was irrelevant and a 7 hour delay was absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "The fact I lost 1300.00 us has pissed me off I'm contacting AA about this I have my visa papers n contracts to show proof if not action is taken i will be contacting a lawyer"
Pros: "Great first class staff."
Cons: "there was no entertainment for a very long flight. also, it was night time, and the fasten seatbelt signs are so big and bright that it is impossible to go to sleep! Our plan was delayed for 2 hours, meaning we did not get in until 230am. it was exhausting!"
Cons: "No entertainment. No food. The flight was 2:25 minutes but American Airlines managed to make it take three and a half hours. The tone of staff was closer to prison guards than airline hostesses."
Pros: "My flight experience with Etihad Airway was fantastic. I will recommend anyone to flight with Etihad. Thank you for your great service Etihad crews. I will flight with you again soon."
Pros: "We flew out of Dallas on AA Eagle and what a great flight! Super roomy, great staff, newest aircraft. Loved it .. wish we could have flown all the way home to SLC on the Eagle!"
Cons: "The only thing we didn't like was the turbulance coming into Amarillo (tornado warning!) but the AA Eagle handled it just fine .. so truly there are NO complaints .. Love this short flight between Dallas and Amarillo!"
Cons: "Food was bad and crew never ask for food to economy passengers for long hour flight meal plan was not working I felt hungry and ac was too cold for all the time nothing good entertainment movies for different languages and no providing small personal hygiene kits for long flight"
Pros: "Again, it seemed to me there was more legroom in first class than on similar Delta flights - meaning it was more comfortable. Also, there was a delay of a couple of hours leaving Dallas due to a problem with the plane's radio, and the American employees handled it very well, keeping the passengers informed and smoothly transferring everyone to a substitute plane."
Pros: "Had window seat. Seat to close tho bulkhead wall. Shoulder literally resting on the side of wall the whole flight."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The entertainment screens and the new seats in business class were very nice"
Pros: "Great free Wi-Fi with a variety of movies to watch. Helpful, friendly crew."
Pros: "We boarded the flight pretty quickly"
Cons: "This elderly woman took long to put her baggage above so someone that was sitting a row behind my seat decided to take all of the overhead bin space, he definitely did not have a carry on size luggage and I feel that would have never happened if tsa would have noticed his carry on was too big"
Pros: "Boarding was simple"
Cons: "For my whole three hour flight a child kicked my chair, i asked the mother politely if she could get her to stop. the woman didn't even apologize and the kicking continued for three hours."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Pros: "The flight itself was smooth and quiet"
Cons: "The delay was to accommodate other passengers, but we sat in the airport for hours. AA's communication about the situation was poor, at best, the staff was tired and cranky, and there was no effort to make sure that we were not inconvenienced."
Pros: "Pilot was very communicative, which was great but plane was 1 hour late and we had a mechanical problem while taxing, pilots fixed it while still on the ground. Not their fault those planes are 35 years old, come on!"
Cons: "Stop flying MD80's, please! 35 year old planes!"
Cons: "Wait for more than two hours then canceled"

Cons: "Julie was the most rude person I've ever had the Unsatisfaction Of meeting."

Cons: "Sat on runway in hot plane for 45 min"
Cons: "Too many deyas ,"
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly and polite. Brought the drink cart around a couple times to make sure everyone was satisfied beverage wise."
Cons: "With it being a smaller plane there wasn't a whole lot of room for a 6'3" guy to sit comfortably for a long stretch. Although understandable for the size of plane it was my only dislike of the flight so overall a very good job."
Cons: "Plane packed, delayed, and entertainment not working. Sucked."
Pros: "Much more comfortable."
Cons: "Lavatory still dirty."
Cons: "Tiny seats. No WiFi and no alternative without charge, excepr for direcrvtv previews, which played the same two stupid shows 2x. Couldn't even see the flight map for free."
Pros: "Cleanliness,excellent customer service, flights on time!"
Pros: "I flew from OKC to Houston and then home to DSM. The price was terrific for a one way flight. I bought at 2:30 am for $130. I checked later the next morning and the price was $455! United Airlines is a great airline. There was a wonderful agent who helped me at the kiosk for check-in. Very friendly. The flight attendant on this flight was very personable."
Cons: "The flight coming back to Houston was late."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"

Pros: "Plane was clean. Attendants were very hospitable."
Cons: "I didn't fly yet"
Pros: "Very friendly, helpful crew"
Cons: "Unappetizing food choices (pasta with cream sauce or beef with sweet sauce), and food poorly prepared (I picked the beef, it made me queasy). Plane was old and unrenovated - there was no entertainment, but you could still see where the old air phones used to be in the seat acts. Boarding was confusing, even for seasoned flyers, with multiple groups using one line."
Pros: "I had a great flight"
Cons: "The normal when you land and getting off flight"
Cons: "This leg had entertainment that we could watch on our phones that never ended up working."
Pros: "I slept the whole way and wasn't disturbed"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "No a thing"
Cons: "The flight was late/ delayed over 6 hours. The crew was rude and very unprofessional. This was the worst experience i have ever had flying. I can honestly say I will Never fly United airlines again. I understand that flights get delayed, but when every worker at the flight check in desk, and flight attendants are rude and have a smug attitude as if they don't care then at that point i walk away from ever doing business with you again."
Pros: "Had an entire row for myself. Flight was quick and comfortable. Staff was helpful and friendly."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "passengers being physically sick next.to me"
Pros: "Great deal and not cheap like spirit..."

Pros: "The service, no stress, fast and easy process. .."
Cons: "Nothing at all,everything went well. .thanks"
Pros: "Easy boarding, friendly crew"
Cons: "Not enough legroom, nothing substantial for snacks"
Cons: "My seat was changed within a half hour of my flight and I wasn't notified until right before I boarded and had to refresh my e-ticket. I wouldn't have waited for group 5, when in reality I was group 3. and then because of this I had to turn over my carryon because no room for group 5 carryons. Also I like to have an aisle seat, and was squished into a window seat."
Pros: "I liked that I slept the whole way."
Cons: "That united barely serves any snacks, need something besides that wafer that won't even make a dent in hunger."
Pros: ". We got back 30minutes early then schedule!"
Cons: "Late departure - maintenance issues. When I arrived in Managua my luggage was lost. The United representative promised it would arrive 10 hours later at 9pm that night and he would have it delivered to me at my hotel that night. When we called to check in the status later that day we were told they had no one to deliver the bag that night (crazy because there are many drivers and taxis in Managua available that night) but promised it would arrive at 9am. 9am came and went and no bag. Wasted a holiday day in Nicaragua because had no clothes to wear to go on any tours. Horrible service."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "No video player"
Pros: "Good crew, polite, professional. Clean cabin."

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "They lost my bag upon arrival."
Cons: "Noises sales pitch."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Many hidden expenses like checked bag, food and drink, seat selection."
Pros: "Smooth flight very pleasant crew."
Cons: "My seat did not recline and the person in front of me did get to recline which made my space even smaller...."
Cons: "Seemed like a good price until I booked and then had to pay for add on such as a carry on piece of luggage. They also gave a sales pitch onboard about "their" credit card. Seats were crowded and uncomfortable. The flight attendants seemed as if they would have rather been anywhere but helping passengers. Both flights were late not due to weather. After booking this flight with all of the ad ons, I found I could have flown Sun Country or Delta for less - and next time I will use another airline."
Pros: "Efficient boarding on and off the plane."
Cons: "The $75 fee for overweight bags is unreasonable. It should be more like $10 for only a few pounds over 50."
Pros: "See aforementioned."
Cons: "Wish that you cou;d use Apple Pay or at least a credit card to purchase snacks/drinks, etc."
Cons: "Great on time status!!!"
Pros: "Courteous crew, departed on time"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Steward made the flight very enjoyable!!! He needs to be training the rest of the flight attendants and deserves a big fat raise! Bravo!!!!"
Cons: "Again, charging for a coke!?!?!"
Pros: "The flight was uneventful."
Cons: "2 hour and 45 minute delay. Nothing offered in compensation, paying for every bag, and the seats are uncomfortable."
Cons: "I contacted Frontier about a week before my flight to let them know my friend I was flying to visit had to make an emergency trip to see her father who was dying of liver failure. On the first attempt I was notified that only immediate family members were would be an excuse but that I could try to request through a different faucet of emergency circumstances. I put through another request and was never contacted. I did not fly to Salt Lake but I was still charged even though they could very well have sold my seat to another person and made double the money for the seat. I am very disappointed with the service I received from Frontier."
Pros: "Cost effective"
Cons: "Seats extremely uncomfortable... but you get what you pay for"
Cons: "We were part of the week when Frontier had a horrendous problem with on-schedule flights. We were two hours late for a 2.5 hour flight. At the gate, attendants were very poor at communicating. Couldn't hear them on the PA. Several people asked me "do you know what zone they are currenly loading?". They board weirdly - instead of back to front. When we got on (seated near the very rear) there were people seated everywhere. Slowed down loading, which slowed down departure. (2.5 hours late) Rows too close together, absolutely no leg room. Seats are the bare minimum - wouldn't recommend a long flight. Not sure I will fly with Frontier again. Will have to pony up the dollars for a better airline."
Cons: "They just boarded all groups at the same time. It was chaos and caused a mess with where people were putting their bags. Also, I paid extra to board early, so this was even more frustrating. I don't like that everything is for sale. Water, carry ons, come on! You end up being more expensive than flying another airline."
Cons: "At airport 2 hours before flight and still missed flight due to check in lines that were the length of the entire terminal. Knowing the capacity of planes and number of booked flights, one would think they would have more than 4 people working the checking in counters. Did not receive a refund for flight and baggage fees. I will NEVER Frontier again!"
Cons: "Mistake with wrong gate number, no food, crew with out smile, plain with no plug in inside"
Cons: "Same screaming infants. They were able to sleep but allowed to roam aisles."
Pros: "My God what an excruciating 3 hour endeavor. Kicks, screams, and all in the awful pitch of a little brat. Kid wouldn't sit down and wouldn't shut up. Flight was full so when I asked to move there were no other options. In all of the flights of my life, by far the worst experience."
Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "Just ridiculous, as follows: 1-Deceptive web page at check in makes you think paying extra for seats is required 2-Seats don't recline unless you PAY EXTRA 3-Carry on bag? PAY EXTRA 4-Care for a Soda? PAY EXTRA 5-Tray table - the size of a business envelope? Really? 6-In-flight magazine? HA! Read the safety info or the back of the barf bag, that's all Frontier provides. 7-Paid $50 each to upgrade seats to front (1st class?) No refreshments, no amenities, just a bigger tray table and a reclining seat. For $50. Sat on tarmac for 1.5 hours in 90 degree heat. I know this because I could hear the pilot yelling over the radio that it was 90 degrees in the plane. No A/C while on tarmac because APU was down, according to pilot announcement. Everyone I talked to felt deceived by the online check in and the extra charge for seats (if you want to sit with your party, otherwise no guarantees). Bad representation, deceptive web check in, uncomfortable plane, zero amenities unless you PAY EXTRA. Sorry Frontier, but FAIL!!!!"
Pros: "The price was good, but I would've been better off with a different airline."
Cons: "Every seat was the same but there was an upcharge on different flights. I paid an extra $9.00 for a window seat in the back of the plane and it would've been $20.00 for the same seat closer to the front. They also charge for bags whether they are carry on or checked. My first flight, a kid in front of me threw up and it went under his seat and all inside of my bag. I spent the entire flight cleaning puke off of my computer and my clothes. The flight attendant just told me there were paper towels in the lavatory. When we finally arrived at 11pm we sat in the runway for 30-45 minutes until our gate was clear. Then we finally pulled up and it took another 15-20 mins for them to attach the bridge for us to get off the plane."
Pros: "Good flight. Accommodating. Will fly again. Cheap flights"
Pros: "Only thing I liked was the cheaper price, but I am thinking it wasn't really worth it."
Cons: "Our plane boarded an hour late. Didn't give any explanation until it was the time we should have taken off. Sat on the runway at our destination which I understand was not the airlines fault, but still not a lot of forthcoming information. Felt like there was even less leg room than on a Southwest plane and I am petite. Can't imagine a big person or tall person sitting in those seats. The half trays were of little use except for to put your drink on. Yes, it was a little cheaper that we didn't have luggage, but I think I'll go back to Southwest."
Pros: "The safety of the flight, kindness of the attendants and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "The hidden fees. I purchased a ticket not knowing that I would then have to pay for a seat! How ridiculous is that??? Did you expect I would hold on to a handle like on a subway??? If I purchase a ticket, I expect that to include a seat. Your ploy to attract people to purchase tickets, and then charge up the nose for even a seat as well as a carry on bag and peanuts, is not impressive. I will not purchase a ticket on Frontier again and I will definitely let my friends and family know that they will be paying just as much for Southwest if they do so. I'd rather know up front what the total charges will be. Very disappointed in this aspect of my purchase."
Pros: "Carry-on passengers getting zone one loading was wonderful to let everyone with bulky items get out of the way."
Cons: "The fees, on top of fees, on top of fees. Lack of entertainment at all. The fact you charged me to change my name on my boarding pass, which is GD ridiculous. Seriously, the name change fee, and baggage fee made my fare over DOUBLE what I originally paid. It's robbery and I won't be flying this airline again."
Cons: "Arrived well before the flight to check bag which I paid $35 (highest rate for check in bag yet-compared to other airlines). Took over an hour to check bag as there was one person checking bags at DIA. The other employee was assigned to the customers who had paid a premium fee. Many of the customers left the long lines and went to curb side to check their bags. When I arrived at gate, flight was delayed. I got on the plane and into my seat. Unfortunately, I was not paying attention and sat in 8F, not 8E. There was a woman and her daughter who came on late and they gave 8E to the daughter. Moments later a woman, came and asked me to show my boarding pass. I took out my phone but forgot I had switched it to airplane mode as we were due to leave. In a full flight, the woman (Robin), started telling me that I was on the wrong flight and that I was on the later flight. I couldn't bring up my seat assignment because I was frazzled and embarrassed as she insisted I get up and leave with her. I thought we were going out to check my assignment, but when I got out to the gate, I realized that the plane was leaving. Robin and the crew realized they had made a mistake and told me the only thing they could do was get me on the 10 p.m. flight out of Denver. Never have I been treated so poorly. All someone had to do was ask my name which did not happen until I was totally humiliated as I struggled to get off the plane and was out at the gate. I was reimbursed my flight and was given a check and a $15 voucher for dinner which didn't cover my dinner. I took the later flight and arrived home at 0100 a.m. My husband had to come home from the coast (2 hour drive) to take care of our dogs who were waiting for me to come home to feed them and get them out of the heat."
Pros: "The security line to the Frontier concourse was unbelievably long, and even though Frontier knew this, it insisted on closing the plane door right on time, at 10 minutes before departure, even though 6 non-related passengers were going to miss the flight. If they had kept the door open 2 extra minutes, all 6 passengers would have made the flight. Ultimately, the plane left 10 minutes late, so 20 minutes after the door closed. I've had enough of Frontier's inflexibility and will gladly pay a higher fare for a different airline."
Pros: "Pissed to be charged 60 dollars for a carry on briefcase. Fuel costs are down its about time these airlines stop gouging us. I try not to fly Frontier and this reminded me why."
Pros: "Very low quality seats and definately not worth the extra money we paid for the so called more leg room No plug on under the seats and no wi-fi. 1.99 for a soda really? Too much mo way for baggage. Will not fly frontier again, you can get better seats and accommodations for the same price or cheaper on other airlines. Definately would choose United or American Airlines"
Cons: "Even though the ticket is cheap, you have to pay outrageous prices for literally everything else. You have to pay to reserve a seat (any seat) otherwise they can separate your family on the plane. You have to pay for drinks (even water) no matter how long your flight. You don't get a free carry on bag and if you don't book the bag before you get to the airport it can cost you north of 45$ to check it. The accommodations themselves were not great. The chairs have no cushioning, don't recline, are so close together that I couldn't cross my legs, and the tray table is 4 inches wide and couldn't even hold my laptop. The flight attendants on both flights were extremely rude and ran into me with the drink cart twice. One of the flight attendants when asked if the AC would be turned on since the flight was pretty warm asked if the woman wasn't just having hot flashes. She was upset tingly abrasive. The flight was delayed on the Tarmac for over an hour because the team couldn't load the baggage on the flight. The flight team didn't give us any explanation of the delay beyond that, they didn't update is on the expected time delay and they never apologized for the delay. When we did finally get going the flight crew was very rude with asking people to sit back down. Worst of all was that after all of that they lost my luggage. Despite a 2 hour layover and 1 hour delay at the gate specifically because they weren't done loading the luggage Frontier couldn't manage to get my luggage from gate 42 to gate 44... The whole experience was awful. I would never fly with them again no matter how cheap the ticket."
Cons: "Everything. Their customer service is non existent. The seats on the plane are a joke. The amount of fees you have to pay after you buy your ticket is robbery. Bye Felicia."
Cons: "The fact that it was sappoesed to be canceled and rescheduled and it was NOT. BOTCHED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Food/Entertainment NA"
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived at my destination early. Crew was very courteous."
Cons: "Cost of check-in bags too high, seats uncomfortable and too close, had to pay extra for my seat (which was not an upgraded seat), no complimentary beverages"
Pros: "Boarding seemed to move really quick and seats were comfortable and seemed roomy."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late leaving. Check in at ticket counter was beyond packed, the line wrapped around."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I got Frontier because I thought I got I good deal but end the end of the trip with all the extra fee on carrier on I spent more than other airline where all the seat can be recliner, sodas free and carrier on are free too. I will try to avoid to use Frontier airlines."
Cons: "Paying for soda? Really?"
Pros: "The crew was professional and curtious."
Cons: "If you're going to charge people for things like carry on, and seat assignment there's no chance you'll ever be my go-to airline again. If you are going to charge that much, at least give me a free cookie, include a tv on back of my seat. Most of all, give the the option to recline my seat!"
Cons: "I tried frontier for the first time and I will never make that mistake again. To be fair part of this is my responsibility, I should have done more research into exactly how much the extra fees were going to cost. After it was all said and done I spent more traveling with frontier than I would have with American or Delta. They charged for absolutely everything. Here is where they truly lost me as a potential return customer. They allow you a personal item as long as it fits under your seat but will charge you for a carry on. The personal item I had on my flight out to Denver did not cost me anything, however, the exact same item on my way out of Denver was now deemed a carry on item by the ticketing agent and cost me $45 to carry on. Not only was I being extorted but the attitude in which they were doing it was completely unacceptable. Had I known, I could have saved some money and paid on line for the carry on. Changing the rules of the game and providing me no remedy when I ask about the change in policy by responding, "I'm saying its a carry on" is why I will never fly frontier again. Do yourself a favor and spend the money on the front end because frontier will find a way to squeeze it out of you on the backend. And will expect you to smile and thank them for it."
Pros: "On time, smooth landing, polite flight attendants"
Cons: "Seats, tray tables, pay for carry on"
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."
Pros: "I booked Frontier for the low price. But after going to a farther away airport and paying for bags and seats and drinks and sitting in an uncomfortable seat, I am not so sure it was a great deal. I am happy that I did pay less than other airlines even with the cost of checking a bag (less cost than carrying one one) and for the seat. Because it is more costly to carry on a bag, hardly anyone did leaving lots of room in the overhead compartments and speeding up boarding and deplaning considerably. Snacks and drinks were reasonably priced and lower cost than in the airport. Only snacks like chips and beef jerky are available so if you want food, bring your own. Flight attendants were friendly. My bag arrived on the same flight that I did and it was in good condition. We were reasonably close to on time."
Cons: "Seats are short front to back and don't recline. There was barely enough room between seats to force by backpack down to the floor and almost no room on the floor to hold it leaving me with no where to put my feet except on top of it. My legs are long and about 1/2 of my leg was not supported by the seat. This was manageable for a short flight but I would certainly not book a long flight with these seats. We spent considerable time on the tarmac waiting at both ends. I am not clear on the delay at the beginning of each flight. The delay at the end was related to Frontier only having 1 gate at each airport so we had to wait until it was free. Yes, we landed 20 minutes ahead of time, but we got into the gate 20 minutes late - meaning sitting on the tarmac for 40 minutes. Bags were slow to come up. Probably because everyone checked them so there were many."
Cons: "Flight 33 minutes late leaving. Did not realize Frontier now charges for everything. My mistake but realized I could have flown on American for same price after all extras added to ticket by Frontiet. Not likely to ever fly on Frontier again."
Pros: "Friendly, comfortable and timely flight."
Cons: "Free drinks? Seemed lacking compared to other flights! Also, baggage allowance? The hidden fees are crazy and not appreciated."
Pros: "Flight was short"
Cons: "I was not informed that I would be forced to pay for a carry-on, which was more expensive than checking my bag. I checked it, which then forced me to have an additional 30 minute wait at baggage claim. Horrible experience especially due to the splitting headache from the child who was screaming louder than I ever thought humanly possible (that obviously wasn't the airline's fault though)."
Pros: "We arrived early!"
Cons: "The $20 in extra charges for the most uncomfortable seats ever. I was also never made aware of the extra charges for carry on items. At least be up front about it. Made my round trip ticket almost $100 more in fees."
Pros: "New plane (A321)! Everything was very clean!! My tickets were still under $275 round trip with baggage fees. Very inexpensive!"
Cons: "Tray table was very small, seats didn't lean back."
Cons: "First time flying Frontier. Great advertised rate round trip Sea to Denver $140 vs next best AK at $170. Receive email to pick seat, Suprise... They cost $9-36 each way, no mention of free seats if you just show up and go open seating. also Suprise# 2 carrying are $40 each way. I choose $18 seats and had a carry on so total trip ended up being $140 + $126 in a frontier gotcha money an increase in fare of almost double. I did find out about the seat chafe scam before checking in and asked to just go open seat.....uhh no. So how much would the Alaska Air trip have been....$170 plus $0 for assigned seat and $0 for carry on so $170. So fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.... Their will not be a twice and I suggest Kayak add some notes to fares to avoid future bilking by Frontier."
Pros: "I like everything about this airline..take off was on time...even landing was before schedule time.."
Cons: "i liked everything....I didn't had no problems...."
