Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "good plane comfortable flight very noce and friendly crew"
Cons: "first my gate was changed then my seat was changed the flight was not well managed"
Cons: "Delayed!!! Waited and waited"
Pros: "new plane, in seat usb plug"
Cons: "2 hour delay & the fact that American holds seats til 24 hours before the flight."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Fine flight"
Pros: "updated plane"
Cons: "The fact that the flight attendant asked me to move seats for a bridal party. Happy to get off the plane if it means a family can be together but to put me on the spot & make me move because of a bridal party is UNACCEPTABLE."
Pros: "Plane wasn't full. Plenty space"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "The seat was so cramped that I couldn't even use my laptop. I didn't have enough room to have my arms in normal typing position. I could 'hunt-and-peck' type, but that was super inconvenient. I didn't have that problem on other flights. So I don't know what was different about my seat on these flights."
Pros: "Great crew. Good, friendly service throughout. Even in coach the seats on this new A321 were pretty nice as far as the back of the plane goes. I'm 6'2" and had enough legroom. Inflight entertainment is decent. I watched the multi view flight map all the way -- now every seat is a window seat. M"
Cons: "Nothing. It was an excellent flight."
Pros: "The plane was nice and new and I really enjoyed the free entertainment option"
Cons: "I can't even come close to counting how many flights I've ever been on in my lifetime, but for me, this attendant was the absolute WORST I've ever come across. He was SO rude to so many passengers, I could hardly believe it. I've also maybe only ever taken the time to write less than a handful of reviews of flights, so I hope that leaving this comment says something. If I were American Airlines, I would NOT want this person representing my business. I took a photo of him on my phone with the original intention of reporting him directly to the airline. I have yet to find the time."
Cons: "Change your fist class cabin. If we’re paying that much for a 4 hour flight we should be in a better cabin. The flight from Lax to O’Hare was great but the plane coming back is old and ragged"
Pros: "Punctuality, professionalism, and overall excellent customer service. Every personal i spoke with was very helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "There are too many good flight times with extensive layovers not enough non stop flights at reasonable times"
Cons: "Absolutely full flight with no physical distancing."
Pros: "The crew was fine, friendly enough, although I was incredibly disappointed that they didn't force people to wear their masks as they boarded. They also didn't enforce masks over noses--rendering masks useless."
Cons: "The flight was completely full. And people weren't wearing masks as they boarded, and the flight attendants did nothing about that. Also, there was no distancing IN the airport during boarding. It's NOT DIFFICULT to put tape marks on the ground to ensure physical distancing. It is THEIR responsibility to make sure the process is safe, since half of the people seem to not care about distancing (or mask wearing). I'm incredibly disappointed and I will be flying Southwest for the time being: I hear they're better at enforcing distancing."
Cons: "Late and then mechanical issues."
Cons: "Baggage delivery was slow and then split between 2 different terminals"
Cons: "Plane was very hot; luggage took forever after landing."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic and plane was clean"
Cons: "My entertainment video player had a bad earphone jack so i could not watch movies or tv and resorted to paying for wifi"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable. Flight was much too crowded"
Cons: "Was next to crying child. I do understand crying children. But I should have footed a free glass of rose."
Pros: "Crew was nice and pleasant."
Cons: "Free food options were basic (pretzels or a cookie)."
Cons: "Had to clean my seat before seating."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early"
Cons: "One of the best flight attendant service I’ve observed in my 30+ years of flying."
Cons: "Flight delayed one hour"
Pros: "Flight arrived a little earlier than expected"
Cons: "Mishandling of luggage my bag did not arrive at the same time I did had to get it send to my home. Still waiting on my luggage."
Cons: "Delayed multiple times"
Cons: "The big problem was a 2+ hour delay departing from Ohare. No plane. Came later."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Service, crammed like sardines (I can't image how terrible it must be if you are tall and big), not even enough space for computer bag to fit under seat in front of me"
Pros: "Complimentary wine and beer but no food! Entertainment pretty good."
Cons: "No food even for sale and no internet"
Pros: "I loved the movie options, It really made it a great experience."
Cons: "Terrible delays entirely their responsibility. No attempts to accommodate. Single worst travel experience I’ve ever had."
Pros: "The seats were smalllish but had excellent amenities, such as a multifunction screen and built-in chargers for my phone or such."
Cons: "We were 35 minutes late in boarding, which is not a big deal, but the cabin temperature was very warm and I was sweating most of the trip. Not happy about that."
Pros: "Plane was alright."
Cons: "Delayed departure delayed deboarsing. Extra flight time = 1 hr due to delays."
Pros: "The have the lotus cookies which is my favorite ."
Pros: "Everything but the seat. It did not have enough room and it was very unconfortable when the people in front reclined their seats back."
Cons: "Small seating space."
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight was very smooth, arrived early, plane clean, service was great."
Cons: "For being in first class, my seat did not recline so I couldn't sleep and audio for my entertainment center was not working"
Cons: "The seats."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. They attempted to resolve issues quickly. The service was late getting out but just barely and on time to arrive."
Cons: "Broken screen in front of me and my seat wouldn’t recline. The crew was helpful to resist the screen and it worked for a bit. But it’s a bit disappointing to see a new aircraft be poorly cared for. Boarding was just a mush of people. Why bother to have reached gold status if every Tom dick and Harry with a credit card will just plow ahead of you?"
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "I was astounded at the miserable "cattle car" experience of this flight. When the person in front of me reclined his seat, the back was shoved to within about a foot of my face. Talk about "In Your Face!" It was nearly impossible to exit from my window seat to the aisle, since there is almost no vertical space open from floor to ceiling in which to move. Flying used to be fun--this is awful!"
Pros: "The free movies on the screens in the back of every seat"
Cons: "Lack of leg room"
Pros: "Individual view screen"
Cons: "Small seat"
Pros: "Easy, smooth."
Pros: "No in seat entertainment"
Cons: "Need more food options to purchase"
Pros: "Made my connection on time"
Cons: "Customs is unorganized. I used Kosik & still had to wait in line twice. Once before i got my luggage and again after i got my luggage. Whew! Be sure you schedule two or three hours between connections or you will miss your flight.I had to wait at carresol for luggage, then drag to drop off point. Take train to gate, quite stressful"
Pros: "New and Updated plane, great service, great crew."
Pros: "We boarded on time and arrived early. What more can ya ask for? Fairly easy ride. Free entertainment on board, movies and shows! Awesome."
Cons: "The speaker that the pilot used was static-y, hard to understand. No free wifi option. Rough landing."
Pros: "I enjoyed the entertainment because I don't watch movies in the theater often. The movies I saw in-flight were recent films I've been wanting to see and made time pass fairly quickly."
Cons: "I'm not a giant, but there definitely was not enough leg room in the main cabin. I could not sit comfortably, especially in the middle seat."
Pros: "The flight attendants were beyond amazing! Throughout the flight they made sure we had plenty of snacks and drinks. Amazing!"
Cons: "I didn't like being told there were no seats together and being charged to sit together with my partner. I found out there were several seats available once we boarded. Disappointing."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 and half hours and never notified. The flight attendants treated people like children instead of customers. They should change careers if they are miserable. I will not fly Frontier again."
Pros: "Flight was on time and a reasonable price even with the baggage fees"
Cons: "High Cost of water bottle"
Pros: "I didn't enjoy anything because I could not board. I was denied boarding by the agent because of being 2 minutes late after waiting in line while her and her coworker held a conversation."
Cons: "I work at LAX airport so I completely understand you can not check in after a certain amount of time. My problem is that the agent was holding a conversation while I was waiting in line. Then tells me I am 2 mins late to check in, not only did she not try to help me with a later flight but she had a NASTY attitude as well. She also asked her coworker if she seen "a tv show last night". Very unprofessional so I ended up flying with United airlines that same day."
Pros: "I got comped a drink."
Cons: "I purchased a $45 seat only to be asked to move because an obese woman had a tight fit in her first row seat so the flight attendants decided to move her next to my seat. it was decided by them that her comfort was more important than mine. All I was told was "she can't be in the first row". Not sure if there is an FAA regulation against having overweight people in the first row? If so she never should have been able to purchase that ticket. So I had to sit in a narrower seat with less leg room which didn't recline for over 5 hours."
Pros: "Everything went well really. This was my first time flying Frontier."
Cons: "U don't give Any snacks free....no nuts pretzels....bad Hmmmmm I don't fly a lot but I usually am offered something 4 free. OK well that's all."
Cons: "Seats don't adjust. They charge for everything."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "I hated the seats. I was cramped and uncomfortable and the seats are designed for people shorter than 5'10""
Cons: "Not well organize"
Pros: "The prices was excellent."
Cons: "Delay at baggage claim"
Pros: "The comfort of the plane, the attendants were pleasant. Pilot drove wel.."
Cons: "Going to ATL. Kids crying, people drunk and snoring, it was a RedEye. I will never do that again."
Pros: "Partners with Spirit Airlines...enough said = WORST EVER."
Pros: "How late we left"
Cons: "How late we arrived"
Cons: "not clean"
Cons: "Arrival seemed uncoordinated and didn't have a dedicated terminal gate."
Cons: "We sat on the run way for almost an hour and a half and the seats were very rough."
Pros: "Fast flight and good quality pricing for tickets."
Cons: "Seats could be a lot better."
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "Additional costs for selecting a seat and carrying on a bag that was not readily apparent when the flight was originally booked, but added $50+ to the overall cost of the flight. In addition, I experienced a 2+ hour delay on my flight from Chicago to LAX on a Sunday evening, which soured the comfortable end to my weekend travel experience."
Pros: "front row seats were spacious. when there was a delay, it was announced a couple of times."
Cons: "My flights were delayed by 30+min both departing and returning. While sitting in the front row seats we were told even our purses (even though small) had to be stored in the overhead compartment."
Pros: "Flight boarded on time. Seats don't recline, but are comfortable and give good lumbar support. Good value if you don't have a carry-on and bring your own snack. Crew was good."
Cons: "Although boarding was complete at 6:20 for a scheduled departure of 6:35, we were told at 6:45 that we were delayed waiting for paperwork but should push back in 10-15 min. We sit in silence until 7:40 and are then told that there was an engine inspection just completed and we should push off now. Wheels weren't off the ground until 8:05. A little more communication would be nice when they cause a 90 minute delay sitting on the plane."
Cons: "Honestly I wouldn't fly through this airline again. Although the price was low, once you add cost for luggage and seating, it is not actually a low price. Could not get comfortable, even when we paid for the better seats on the return."
Cons: "No place to charge a phone on the plane."
Pros: "We have not left yet 4 hr delay"
Cons: "FWe have not left yet 4 hr delay"
Pros: "The cost of the flight was very cheap, which is nice when you are flying somewhere far like Chicago to California (usually one way can be over $200). The boarding process and crew were all very nice."
Cons: "You get what you pay for. The seats aren't the most comfortable and you don't have the best legroom. Also, pack light so you can fit everything under the seat and avoid extra costs. Good for some travelers, but not for everyone."
Pros: "I was charged $3.50 for water. WATER!!!"
Cons: "very delayed, so i had to cancel"
Cons: "I will never fly Frontier again. The initial flight was cheap, but I got nickel-and-dimed for everything else. If we had lost pressure it would not have surprised me if you had to swipe your credit card for the oxygen mask. Couple that with uncomfortable seats and rude service and I really regretted not just spending the extra $100 on a United flight."
Pros: "I was able to travel with my service animal with no issue. Staff was extremely accommodating."
Cons: "No entertainment and food/beverages too expensive. $2.99 for a can of soda or a small bag of chips?? Insane!!"
Pros: "There was a 5 hour delay from Chicago to LAX with zero communication on reasons for delays or expected travel time. The only thing offered for apologies was a credit to a new flight with Frontier. Won't happen as I won't fly with them again."
Pros: "Once we actually got in the air the flight was fine. Didn't take too long and the crew were lovely in getting us what we needed."
Cons: "We were delayed because of weather first at the gate and then for almost 2 hours after we boarded but were left on the tarmac unable to take off. This is the part that bothered me the most. Perhaps the airline didn't know we would be held that long but on the plane once they told us the crew also got a bit annoyed after 2 hours when everyone needed to get up to use the bathroom which should have been expected since they literally had us waiting and going no where for that entire time. This situation could have been handled better and communicated more clearly upfront to the passengers. It probably didn't make a lot of sense to board us to only have us wait another 2+ hour stretch."
Cons: "Ended up being more expensive than other airlines after the bag fees at check in and on top of that, there's no televisions, seats don't recline. Stewardess' were nice but that's about it. I won't fly with them again. Flight was also delayed 3 hours"
Cons: "That they wouldn't let me board my flight 30 min prior to boarding! Had to spend 350+ to buy another flight with united!!"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on!!!!"
Cons: "The first half was fine, but the person next to me had two small dogs in a bag and one of them pooped halfway through. You would not believe the smell, my whole row spend the second half of the flight breathing through our shirts."
Pros: "Only good thing about this airline is the crew ladies."
Cons: "The plane was making a horrible sound the first hour or the flight and everyone was laughing or joking about it like if the plain was gonna crash. Plus, the seats are AWFUL: NO reclining seats!!! Thin and narrow, uncomfortable like no others. Plus, they charge you for EVERYTHING!!! In addition to your flight ticket they charge you EXTRA for the seat, NOT EVEN 1 BAG IS INCLUDED! You have to pay for everything online, and if you pay at the counter before the flight they have the nerves to even upcharge you and scale the price 100% UP! NO free snacks at the flight or even water... It was just a terrible experience overall..."
Pros: "Timing was perfect. I appreciated the on time boarding and flight time."
Cons: "The flight was a bit cold."
Pros: "We paid extra for extra leg room and reclining seats. We will fly any other way. Worth every penny."
Cons: "We were moved from our seats on the flight to Chicago. I was very, very upset about that."
Pros: "the staff was very friendly and the plane was spotless. Definitely will Be using frontier again."
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about. Really did enjoy this flight. Way better experience then with Southwest or United."
Cons: "The fact that Reclining seats are a upgrade is unexceptable . The price online to check in your bags change during a check in. I was charged more than what your website state. The check-in reservation is was rude and unwilling to correct a computer glitch . She stated that your software had no ability to override a mistake."
Pros: "plenty of isle width and height which was a pleasant surprise and since the seats are the new thin profile it seemed like there was a very slight increase in leg room but its still not generous for passenger over 5 feet 6 inches tall."
Cons: "the seats were the new thin profile ones and have practically no cushioning so after about 45-60 minutes of sitting you feel it on your butt and back. Also, the headrest on these seats are low and not adjustable so passengers taller than about 5 feet 6 inches (like me) are going to get some neck strain after about an hour flight."
Pros: "Landed safely. $45.00 special seats were a joke."
Cons: "Everything. Cut rate discomfort"
Pros: "The poor flight attendants were stuck with making excuses for an airline that never was honest with it's customers"
Cons: "3 hours on runway. Told time after time, that the fight was leaving in 15 minutes. Taken to an International temainal a mile from another alternate flight. I understand planes have mechanical problems, but people have plans an when you are not honest about timelines, it creates problems for the very customers who support you."
Pros: "Cost was excellent. Crew was friendly. Flight to Chicago was excellent, ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Plane returning from Chicago to LAX. Delayed 10 hours due to mechanical problems. Poor communication on the reasons why."
Pros: "Frontier had us waiting 3.5 hours while they fix a computer glitch without providing beverages or food or opportunity to deplane. Terrible airline, will never book again."
Cons: "Everything was terrible quality"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and efficient and the plane arrived early"
Cons: "I thought the seats were uncomfortable. They don't recline and there is very little cushion."
Pros: "When we landed and exited the plane"
Cons: "Charging for carryines just ain't worth it. I'm not ever flying frontier or spirit. The extra cost for no hassle will be worth it."
Pros: "The pilot provided a smooth travel."
Cons: "Very disappointed with having to pay an extra $30 when my personal luggage has ALWAYS fit under the seat or inside of the overhead. There was absolutely no update of flight status until 40 min near our destination. Overall very uncomfortable"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, over priced snacks, no foods."
Pros: "Seat was very comfy"
Cons: "No internet.... Pay for luggage ..."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Always delayed"
Pros: "A la Carter is hard to get used to, but really does work Both flights were delayed so that's not very good, I guess. I would try them again but no frequent flyer club for me."
Cons: "I wasn't able to go, and despite buying insurance; it was impossible to reach Sprit or the Insurance company about coverage."
Pros: "Hate it"
Cons: "Staff crying over every dollar.. bad ways of making money..."
Cons: "Paying for a carry on? Really?"
Pros: "This was a very good price point for flying to Los Angeles from Chicago on short notice. However this is a no-frills for light no food or beverages is provided without payment. The service was not bad but nothing spectacular."
Cons: "We did not like that the boarding pass that I printed at home said "proceed straight to bag drop" however when I ended up in the bag drop line they made me switch to the regular check in line which made me later on my way to security check."
Cons: "No ajustable seats no complementary drinks"
Cons: "Flimsy temp ramp lack of asset stench for elderly & handicapped"
Cons: "Seats are so uncomfortable."
Cons: "Being delayed over an hour with no explanation from anyone as to what was going on was very aggravating. Not to mention the fact that I had to pay for my carry on bag both ways, which is unheard of... I’ve never paid for carry on luggage in my life. I won’t be flying with Spirit again."
Pros: "Price. Straight up. Can’t beat it."
Pros: "Great trip"
Pros: "$50 for one"
Cons: "Charging for carry on item."
Cons: "The plane smelled like poop."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for over an hour waiting for another Spirit plane to clear the gate. Bad planning on the part of the airline."
Pros: "Nothing never will buy a ticket from your airline I called your customer service # and once your agent started to hear my complaint she just stop answering me then she hanged up on me how unprofessional"
Cons: "Service and all the hidden extras that have to be paid for"
Cons: "I do not understand why you charge me 65 dollars for my 20 pound suitcase"
Pros: "The seat. It was on the row."
Cons: "Unlike my neighbor, I did not have an entertainment screen with a phone charger or headsets."
Cons: "we always travel by spirit and as always we use the same bag , my husband went to Texas by spirit 2 weeks ago whit that bag and they didn't charge anything but in the trip back to LA they charge $65.00 and it was the same bag he traveled from LA to Texas, in conclusion we are not longer continue traveling by spirit because you don't standarly charge for baggage, sometimes you charge sometimes you dont and when you make your random charges the fee for traveling with you is the same fee for traveling with any other airline."
Pros: "It was no long lines and I was of the first to board"
Cons: "No food to buy"
Cons: "Everything! A waist of money"
Cons: "Our first fly got 4 hrs. Delay and fly got cancelled on our way back"

Cons: "Seat didn't recline"
Pros: "It was punctual"
Cons: "I had to pay 100 dollars for my bags"
Cons: "No leg room. $100 for a carry on bag at the gate. Should try harder to warn people that they are not allowed carry on items"
Pros: "Rapid on and off the plane"
Cons: "Worst carrier ever, avoid them at all cost. Should have just flown a major carrier but know I know better. F their bare fare after you add a single checked bag or carry on its more than delta. Horrible uncomfortable experience all-around."
Cons: "I Jesus got charged over a $400 fee for my bags. I was never told that there was a charge for bags."
Cons: "They off loaded our luggage in Las Vegas, telling us they were unloading extra fuel. Then they told us our luggage would be at the airport. When I complained about this, they refused to provide compensation for returning to the airport to get my luggage, and gave me the run around about getting a refund for the baggage fee.... will never fly them again...."
Pros: "I didn't like anything about this airline"
Cons: "I didn't like that they charge you for carry-on and seats. Also they charged me an extra $55 because luggage was over 14 lbs over the 40 lb limit. And then they ruined my luggage.
